Newsflash: Kim Kardashian is No Beyoncé

Kanye West is dialing back his very public romance with Kim Kardashian just a bit. The rapper is denying a recent report that he’s so sprung on the reality star that he’s referring to her as (gag) his “Beyoncé.”

Yeezy tells Us Weekly, “…of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the ‘She’s my Beyonce’ quote. I would never compare anyone to my friend’s wife.”

“Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me,” he adds. “If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.”

There’s no need to point out the 1.1 million ways Kim is nothing like our Bey (that would be a little bit cruel, don’t ya think?), but we’re glad Jay-Z laid the smack down Kanye distanced himself from the ridiculous comment, which already has it’s own SNL spoof.

Meanwhile, Kardashian is reaching for the throne…er, the key to the city of Glendale by declaring she’s planning her bid for mayor of the Los Angeles suburb. She’s totally serious, y’all, so get those lawn signs and campaign buttons ready!

Kanye West Compares Kim Kardashian to Beyoncé

Oh no he didn’t. Kanye West has evidently been so blinded by love (or something) that sources say he’s comparing his current flavor Kim Kardashian to pal Jay-Z’s wife of four years, Beyoncé.

“It’s not a PR stunt,” the pal tells Us Weekly, adding that Yeezy has “genuinely fallen head over heels” for the reality mogul. “They’re perfect for each other. He thinks she’s his Beyoncé!”

“Now that Kim has gotten over the Kris drama . . . she sees how much Kanye loves her,” a Kardashian source adds.

We’re still convinced these anonymous sources are actually Kris Jenner, but the newly-public couple are definitely walking the walk. They’ve been spotted all over New York together in the past few days, at the movies, at dinner and making an emergency Duane Reade run (wink-wink). We’re all for Ye gettin’ his, but putting Kim in the same orbit as Miss Bey is beyond comprehension. Kanye, if this high-profile hook-up lasts more than a month, then we’ll talk.

In the mean time, we better not be seeing them on any double dates.

Khloe Kardashian: Amber Rose is Using My Sister to Get Famous

Khloe Kardashian used her famously sharp tongue to put Amber Rose on blast yesterday.

The reality star made an appearance on Sway’s radio talk show on SiriusXM, and addressed the hip-hop queen’s allegations that Kim Kardashian is the reason she and Kanye West are dunzo…but then didn’t exactly deny that there’s heat between her sister and Yeezy.

When asked for her thoughts on Amber’s accusations that Kanye cheated on her with Kim (who was supposedly, in turn, cheating on Reggie Bush), Khloe said: “Well, I don’t know Amber… A lot of people like to use my sister’s name for their own benefit.”

However, she then herself alludes that though Kim and Kanye are officially “just friends,” there’s more to the pair than just retweets and photo-ops. “From everything, from him being around my mom, him being around Lamar, even Lamar’s kids, it’s never been on that level. I do know that they’re friends and they might have that feeling for each other, I just don’t think it’s worked timing wise.”

Not working timing wise? Last we checked, they’re both very single at the moment. Though, in the same interview, Khloe did make it clear that she’s very Team Reggie when it comes to who Kim dates next.

As for Khloe calling Amber a fame slore for talking about her sister…pot-kettle-black?

Amber Rose’s Former Publicist Puts Her on Blast for the “Real” Reason Her and Kanye Split

I guess Amber Rose isn’t the only one trying to resurrect old news about the reasons her and Kanye West broke up in an attempt to draw attention to upcoming projects. A few weeks ago, the blond bombshell told Star magazine that Kim Kardashian was a “home wrecker” who cheated with Kanye thus breaking up her happy home back in 2010, but Amber’s former publicist Janero Marchand just aired her out for her own cheating and thieving ways, which he claims are the real reason the couple split.

Marchand went to run tell that to

“I was the person who introduced Kanye West and Amber Rose. Amber wanted me to lie to Kanye when he asked me about her stealing. My integrity and morals I was raised on would not allow me to do something like that.

I just want the public to know that I am a man that conducts my business with integrity and morals. And I support my clients 100% until they do something that is unethical or unlawful business wise. I never had intentions to speak on this subject, but seeing Amber being dishonest to the media about the reason she and Kanye broke up was the last straw. Kanye is a good person. He helped book my first two music videos, and if it wasn’t for him co-signing Amber, she would not be in the position she is in today.”

The disgruntled publicist alleges Amber tried to cut him out of a deal for a video for Kanye’s “Robocop”, which she starred in…although the video never saw the light of day because, get this, he says she was cheating and go. “The “Robocop” video never got released because of Amber’s infidelity,” Marchand said. “It was put on hold and never released after Kanye caught Amber cheating. Kanye to this day thanked me for my honesty. Once I told Kanye the truth, he later caught Amber red handed when she accidentally called an ex of hers with him on the phone. He wrote a song about it called ‘Blame Game.’” (as if we didn’t all know the “Yeezy taught me!” skit was all about Amber the first time we heard it).

That’s a whole lot of tea to spill! Of course Janero promises to speak more on the Kanye/Amber debacle in an upcoming documentary The Michael Jordan of Models which drops next month. This begs the question: is any of this mess true or is everybody just trying to get their projects off the ground.  Ahem, I’m looking at you too Amber! Don’t think I didn’t notice you started popping off about Kim and Kanye right around the time you dropped your first single. How convenient?

Amber Rose Forgives Kim Kardashian for Alleged Affair With Kanye

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, January 11, 2012 at 10:00 am.

This week’s unofficial “Girl Bye” award might just have to be handed out to Amber Rose! Last week the model/reality star/singer called out Kim Kardashian for being a “home wrecker” and ruining her relationship with Kanye West (as if anybody was checking for that rumor confirmation years after the fact),  but she’s already changing her tune and saying that all is forgiven.

Amber told TMZ, “I forgive her … and I forgive Kanye too … it’s not a big deal, you know?”  Um, duh considering that Amber’s supposedly happily in love with her man Wiz Khalifah, Kanye’s busy Watching the Throne, and Kim is still dealing with the aftermath of her quickie marriage and divorce!

Amber resurrected the alleged old news from  2010, in  a recent interview with Star magazine and said Kim is “one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together.”  She added “They were both cheating. They were both cheating on me and Reggie [Bush] with each other.”  She claimed  Kim initiated the infidelity by texting and sending racy pictures of herself to Kanye. Kim has vehemently denied the claims, which is probably why she never got in touch to apologize, as Amber has pointed out. Kanye hasn’t touched the subject at all. In the initial interview Amber noted, “I want to thank her. Because if she was never a home-wrecker, then I never would have met Wiz, and I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now.”

So if it’s all that why would Amber choose now to bring up old stuff that may or may not be true in the first place?

She explained, “I had to get off my chest so people knew the truth. I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone’s feelings. The truth will set you free. At the end of the day, I want to apologize to Kim for calling her a home-wrecker.”She went on to say, “I’m all about women and empowerment and even though she made a mistake in life, I shouldn’t stoop down to her level and call her names. I’m human and I reacted on my emotions. I never want to call a women a home-wrecker or a bi-ch or a whore.”

So the new single, “The Fame” she dropped this week with Wiz, had nothing to do with her wanting to draw attention to herself in the spotlight now, of all times? Oh, OK.

Model Accused of Stalking Kanye West

Kanye West has made his affinity for models painfully clear time and time again (and then another encore), but in the rapper’s latest model-themed story he’s not the one doing the chasing.

Page Six says one ex-beauty queen has been following Kanye all across New York. The gossip column says Miss Universe Albania 2010, Angela Martini, was linked to West in the Spring but fails to understand we’re at the end of summer and her time is up. Page Six says Martini was banned from the recent Watch the Throne album launch after party days ago.

And proving she’s still quite pressed, sources say Martini got close to one of West’s producers so she could get an in at a previous listening party. Once ‘Ye got word, he shut her out from the after party. A month ago, the Elite Model rushed over to Greenhouse for Rihanna’s after party when she found out Kanye was there.

The thirst continues as a source says, “She eats at his favorite restaurant, Niko, near his SoHo apartment just to bump into him. She says they’re in love.” That’s what all stalkers say until they get their restraining order. Give it up, turn it loose, Martini.

Kanye West Disses Amber Rose?

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 2:31 pm.

It seems that Kanye West hasn’t completely gotten over his ex.  During his well-received set at Coachella, it was reported that Kanye had something slick to say about Amber Rose.

While performing his hit song, “Stronger,” Kanye shifted some of his lyrics.  The original line is: “I’ll do anything for a blonde d–e and she’ll do anything if the time’s right.” What Coachella fans and online lookers heard was: “I did everything for that blonde d–e and she did anything when the time was right.”

Amber Rose was actually present at the famed music festival. The model (who has a reality show on the way) was in attendance with new boyfriend, rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Kanye West Is Not Heading to College

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at 11:50 am.

Last week, rumors began swirling that Kanye West was ready to take his love of fashion more seriously by applying to study for a masters degree in fashion at Central Saint Martins College in London.

According to the U.K.’s The Sun, Kanye flew to London to meet with school officials about his application. A source said to them: “Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central’s arty pupils when he is in London.”

As much as entertainers love to talk about fashion, very few of them seem to know enough about fashion outside of what their stylists tells them. So it would be impressive to see someone go that far to prove their dedication, right? Maybe, but Kanye won’t be the one to do it. As it turns out, those rumors have been effectively shut down. reached out to the school, and the university’s press officer Jo Ortmans responded in an email:

“Kanye West has not applied for a place on M.A. Fashion at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He visited the college last week on unrelated matters.”

In his defense, he does seem to know way more about fa-shon then the next red bottom crying rapper.

Kanye Tweets About Abortions and “Gold Diggers”

Published by Dior Noir on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 3:00 pm.

Sigh. I guess it’s impossible to get through a month without any foolery from Kanye, huh? The rapper’s latest antics came last night when he hit his Twitter page to rant about abortions, gold diggers, and strapping up. Want to hear it? Here it go:

@kanyewest: an abortion can cost a ballin’ ni–a up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin’ bi-ches be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my ni–as!”

I’m guessing the 50K–100K figure includes hush money. *side eye*

Kanye was quick to point out that he’s not facing the predicament himself, later tweeting: “@kanyewest: It ain’t happen to me but I know people.”

I really wish ‘Yeezy would take some of that money he’s “saving” on abortions and take a communications class or give his PR team a raise so that they can muzzle him a little better. I get the message to the menfolk: Some women just want to take your money and will try to have kids to do so, and the only way to avoid this is to practice safe sex. I’m all for safe sex too, but as usual Kanye’s delivery had sticky timing.

Meanwhile, in New York, the ad below, from anti-abortion group Life Always, is currently causing controversy and a media frenzy:

“During Black History Month, we celebrate our history, but our future is in jeopardy as a genocidal plot is carried out through abortion,” says Life Always Board Member Pastor Stephen Broden.

Both “PSAs” got under my skin; there’s just got to be a better way to speak on the issue at hand.

What’s your take? Discuss.

Kanye West’s Orlando Park Fatburger Shut’s Down

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at 3:00 pm.

A few years ago Kanye West brought his love for the California-based Fatburger restaurant to his hometown and got the rights to open 10 of his own locations in the Chicago area. But now it’s  lights out for ‘Ye’s Orlando Park location, which was shut down on Sunday because of under performing finances, Crain’s Chicago reports.

Fatburger Corp. CEO Andy Widerhorn told Crain’s the company is seeking a replacement site nearby the shuttered burger-joint which opened in 2008. In the meantime, dudes in the area will have to find another burger joint if they want to ”spoil” their girls Biggie style.

Word is ‘Ye’s Beverly location is doing well.
