"It doesn't even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that's all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for seven years... Kim is this girl who f**king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around." Rapper Kanye West insists he wasn't angered that close friends Jay Z and Beyonce snubbed his Italian wedding to reality star Kim Kardashian in May (14).
Lana Del Rey's bizarre behaviour continued during a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, when she insisted she wasn't worthy of becoming a cover girl for the publication. Just weeks after she accused a British journalist of manipulating a chat for The Guardian, during which she announced she wished she was dead, the Summertime Sadness star has stunned another reporter by insisting someone else should have been given the honour of fronting the respected music bible.
After trying to cancel her interview with senior writer Brian Hiatt, Del Rey told him, "I'm not sure if they should run this story. I feel like maybe we should wait until there's something good to talk about. You know? I just wish you could write about something else.
"There has to be someone else to be the cover story. Like, there has to be. Anybody."
Ironically, Del Rey is the perfect cover girl for Rolling Stone - after performing on the eve of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding, she topped charts all over the world with her new album Ultraviolence.
During the Rolling Stone interview, the singer also revisited her "wish I was dead" comments, stating, "Well, I feel f**king crazy, but I don't think I am. People make me feel crazy... I find that most people I meet figure I kind of want to kill myself anyway."
Kim Kardashian's ex-boyfriend, American football star Reggie Bush, married his longtime love Lilit Avagyan at luxury The Grand Del Mar resort in San Diego, California on Saturday (12Jul14). The couple became engaged last year (13), shortly before the birth of its daughter Briseis. The Detroit Lions star famously dated Kardashian on-and-off for several years before splitting for good in 2010. The reality TV star wed rapper Kanye West in May (14).
"It was not a paid gig... We've been friends for a long time, he signed me to my first record deal so I wasn't going to charge him. I'm charging everybody else though!" R&B star John Legend performed for free at pal Kanye West's May (14) wedding to reality TV beauty Kim Kardashian.
Kim Kardashian's ex-boyfriend, American football star Reggie Bush, is set to wed his longtime love Lilit Avagyan in San Diego, California this weekend (11-13Jul14), reports TMZ.com. The couple became engaged last year (13), shortly before the birth of its daughter Briseis. The sportsman famously dated Kardashian on-and-off for several years before splitting for good in 2010. The reality TV star wed rapper Kanye West in May (14).
Kim Kardashian's lawyer has challenged an imprisoned convict to take a lie detector test amid allegations he bedded the reality TV star while she was engaged to basketball player Kris Humphries. Andrey Hicks claims he is in possession of an email Kardashian allegedly sent him in 2011, when she acknowledged the alleged affair in Monaco and admitted it was "a mistake".
However, legal eagle Marty Singer is convinced the note is a fake and he has fired off a scathing letter to Hicks, who openly refers to himself a "greedy capitalist who went to jail for a greedy scheme".
In the message, obtained by editors at TMZ.com, Singer blasts Hicks as "a swindling convict and a liar" and encourages the prisoner to take a polygraph test.
Kardashian wed Humphries in August, 2011 after a whirlwind romance, but she moved to end the marriage just 72 days later. The divorce was granted last year (13), four months before she became engaged to rapper Kanye West. They exchanged vows in Italy in May (14).
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is house-hunting for a home in New York City with her new husband Kanye West. The showbiz couple married in Italy last month (May14) and Kardashian now appears to be searching for a marital home in the Big Apple.
The socialite viewed a $17.3 million (£10.8 million) town house in Greenwich Village on Friday (27Jun14) along with her mother Kris Jenner, sister Kendall Jenner and a TV crew.
Kardashian is also said to have visited a $13 million (£8.1 million) penthouse with a private terrace complete with swimming pool.
Pictures show the brunette beauty wearing a hard hat as she visited one of the unfinished apartments.
The couple is building a family home in Bel Air, California but construction work is still underway. Reports suggest the project may be completed later this year (14).
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has urged fellow celebrities to give up a boycott of the Dorchester Collection hotel chain as she fears staff will suffer during the protest. Kanye West's new wife has switched sides in the Hollywood-fuelled debate, in which stars have refused to stay in or visit the hotels since the owner - Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah - adopted a harsh Sharia Law penal code calling for homosexuality to be punishable by death in his home country.
Kardashian originally planned to host her bridal shower at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California earlier this year (14), but joined stars including Sharon Osbourne and Ellen DeGeneres in boycotting the venue and moved the pre-wedding party to the nearby Peninsula Hotel. However, in an entry posted on her blog on Monday (23Jun14), Kardashian now encourages her fans and fellow celebrities to call off the boycott.
She writes, "My best friend Allison and I wanted to take our babies out to lunch a few days ago... We were planning on taking them to the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is where we always go because they respect not having any paparazzi drive onto their property, but I reminded Allison that my bridal shower was moved from that hotel due to the actions of the Sultan of Brunei. "Allison shared with me her view on the situation and we 100 per cent agree that the actions and law enforcements of the Sultan are completely against everything we believe in." She continues, "However, I started to realise that maybe boycotting the hotel isn't the best solution either. For a sultan that has 20 billion dollars, this loss of business doesn't even make a dent in his fortunes. But the hotel staff are being negatively affected every day with the boycott that has gone on for weeks now... "We shouldn't punish the amazing hard-working people who have been so good to us for years!... "There must be other ways to express our views without punishing the workers, some who I know personally have families at home and depend on the city's business and tips to survive... "The unjust treatment and violation of rights of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community around the world is never justified and I will continue to proudly support the LGBT community in every way imaginable. I do believe though that instead of this boycott, there has to be another solution. "I hope we can come together and stand up for our beliefs while still making sure good people aren't wrongfully hurt in the process. Boycotting the hotel won't affect the sultan, just our dear friends who work there."
U.S. soap opera The Young And The Restless was the one to beat at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday (22Jun14) after scooping six of the prizegiving's top awards.
Currently in its 41st season, the programme has spent 25 years as the number one rated daytime drama in America, and it proved its longevity by landing a handful of awards at the Los Angeles ceremony, including its eighth win for Outstanding Drama Series. Stars Billy Miller (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series), Amelia Heinle (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series), and Hunter King (Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series) all won in the top acting categories, while the show also took the trophies for Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team and Outstanding Special Class Special for The Young and The Restless: The Jeanne Cooper Tribute, in honour of the actress who starred on the show for 40 years and died last May (13).
On Friday (20Jun14), The Young and The Restless earned three additional Daytime Creative Arts Emmys for a total haul of nine awards. Another long-running soap, Days of Our Lives, earned multiple wins, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Eileen Davidson, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Eric Martsolf, and Chandler Massey for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.
Other winners included Steve Harvey (Outstanding Game Show Host for Family Feud and Outstanding Talk Show - Informative for his self-titled programme), Ellen DeGeneres (Outstanding Talk Show - Entertainment and five additional Creative Arts Emmys), and Dr. Mehmet Oz and newlywed Katie Couric, who tied as Outstanding Talk Show Host.
Comedienne Kathy Griffin hosted the prizegiving at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and kicked off the night by mocking reality TV star Kris Jenner, who attended the awards show last year (13) on the same day her daughter Kim Kardashian gave birth to baby North West.
"I grew up with a lot of sisters and a brother, so a lot of siblings, so I know what that's like. I don't know if I would really follow in my mom's footsteps and have six - I think that's a little crazy, I don't know how they did it. They were in their twenties and they weren't really thinking right. But I like a big family so I would definitely like one more and see how that goes." Newlywed Kim Kardashian is eager to add at least one sibling for her 12-month-old daughter North, with husband Kanye West.
