Depending on what you read, Kim Kardashian is living quite the single life.
A few weeks ago, she was linked with rapper Kanye West. Only a week ago she was being linked to the bodyguard who appeared on her reality show. Then there was talk that Reggie Bush wanted her back.
And now, In Touch Weekly is continuing to push the Kanye rumor with a report that the two were spotted out and about enjoying each other’s company.
There might be a fall chill in the air, but Kim Kardashian is keeping warm by snuggling up to Kanye West! Kim was spotted out with the rapper at Bijan’s Bistro in Chicago on October 19. Brian Schyler, a local jazz singer who was also dining at the late-night restaurant, tells In Touch exclusively, “Kanye had his arm around her all evening!” And Kim sat extra-close to Kanye until the wee hours of the morning. “He was rubbing her knee all night — they definitely looked like a couple,” Brian tells In Touch.
But Page Six says it’s actually John Mayer who’s keeping up with the fairest Kardashian of them all:
Sources said Mayer recently was out one night with the sultry star, who’s in town filming her new series. One source said, “They brought along other friends, but the idea was to see if they would hit it off.” Kim’s made it clear she’s on the hunt for a new man in New York.
The New York Post originally linked the two back in December, which was followed by Mayer cursing them out via Twitter.
I guess the real thing beats a lookalike.

Did Robert Pattinson learn nothing from John Mayer? The Twilight actor sat down with Details magazine and threw around a racially charged joke like it was nothing. Keep in mind the interviewer, Jenny Lumet, is a Black journalist (and Lena Horne’s granddaughter no less), that said, here’s the dialogue she had with Pattinson:
Details: Rob, did you know that every time you say actor or acting you lower your voice to a whisper?
Rob: (He’s genuinely startled.) “I do?”
Details: Yes, so quietly it’s like you’re saying Negro.
Rob: (He laughs, lightens up.) “What if we were ‘acting’ like ‘Negroes’? Then we’d be f*cked—we couldn’t hear anything. . . .”
Now I’m not sure what even prompted Lumet to lead Pattinson down the racial path by making the Negro comparison in the first place (clearly she has her own race issues) or why Details even felt the need to run this part of the interview that had nothing to do with anything (Pattingson had already said he’s “allergic to vagina” in the article, wasn’t that shock value enough?) but it bothers me. What’s up with these young entertainers, who probably have plenty of Black fans, thinking it’s cool to make these off putting jokes these days!?
So much for a little respect during the very few days of Black History Month.

Many of you weren’t feeling John Mayer’s racially charged comments in his recent Playboy interview, and apparently Oprah doesn’t want to hear from him either after the controversy.
Although John has preformed on the Daytime TV Queen’s show before, according to PopEater.com a TV insider said that Oprah wont be opening up her couch to him anytime soon:
“Oprah is the smartest person on TV and will not let John use her or her show to ask for forgiveness,” the TV insider said. “If John really wants to apologize for his racist and sexist comments, he should find somewhere else. The only way Oprah, who is a dear friend of Jennifer Aniston, would ever book him is if John were interested in having a much deeper conversation about race, women and fame.”
Mayer has apologized for using the N-word and making his other controversial comments both on his Twitter page (@johncmayer) as well as one of his recent concerts in Nashville where he “choked up” while saying his “I’m sorrys” (cry me a river!) before declaring “It’s just not worth being clever…I just can’t. I quit the sound-bite game. I quit the media game. I’m out. I’m done. I just want to play my guitar to whoever is around.”
Shut up and stick to music? Sounds like a good plan for him to me!

Where is Kanye when you need him!
The Internet is reeling over some very candid comments John Mayer made about Black women in a recent Playboy interview. I have to admit, I winced when reading several of his comments in general during the article (like when he outlines his response to someone recently asking him: “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” click source below to read the interview in it’s entirety), but here’s what he had to say about Black women in particular:
PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?
MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My di-k is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fu–in’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my di-k.
PLAYBOY: Let’s put some names out there. Let’s get specific.
MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She’s superhot, and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, “Yeah, I sucked his di-k. Whatever.” And you’d be like, “What? We weren’t talking about that.”
So Mayer has a self proclaimed racist di-k? It definitely took some balls for him to say that! He could’ve picked a more PC way to make the point that he doesn’t really date Black women, for sure, and I’m not feeling the way he talked about Kerry! But is there really a problem in general with Mayer saying that he doesn’t date Black women? I know several Black women who will honestly say that they don’t really check for White men when it comes to dating either. Plus judging by many of the comments in last month’s post about Reggie Bush gracing the February cover of Essence, there’s a whole lot of folks who would prefer that Black people only date other Black people anyway (wheew some of ya’ll went off!). So tell us:
Are John Mayer’s comments offensive to you? If so, why?
