Rapper Kanye West gave onlookers at New York Fashion Week a special treat when he used his Adidas show to debut the first track off his upcoming album. The Stronger hitmaker officially launched his collaboration with the sportswear brand on Thursday (12Feb15), as he unveiled his new Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost shoes.
During the show, West's new song, Wolves, played on the speakers as the models, including West's half-sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, took to the runway.
The new tune boasts vocals from Chandelier singer Sia and hip-hop artist Vic Mensa.
Among those in the audience to support his latest venture were West's wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter North, and Kim's other family members Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kris Jenner.
They sat alongside West's good friends Jay Z and Beyonce, as well as Sean 'Diddy' Combs, his singer girlfriend Cassie, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Big Sean.
The fashion show was also live-streamed in 50 cinemas worldwide.
Retired Olympian Bruce Jenner has walked away unscathed from a multi-car crash which left one woman dead in Malibu, California on Saturday (07Feb15). Kim Kardashian's stepfather was traveling on the Pacific Coast Highway just after noon when his Escalade collided with other vehicles which had crashed on the road.
One woman died in the four-car pile-up, while seven other people suffered minor to moderate injuries, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department official Art Marrujo.
Jenner's publicist, Alan Nierob, has confirmed the former athlete was not among those hurt in the incident.
An eyewitness tells People.com, "Bruce seemed physically OK after the accident, but he acted extremely concerned about the other people involved...
"Bruce walked around the accident scene without obvious injuries, but his car was damaged. He did not cause the accident and was instead involved in a chain reaction."
The news emerges amid ongoing speculation that Jenner, who won gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, is in the process of transitioning into life as a woman.
The 65 year old is reportedly set to reveal all to U.S. news anchor Diane Sawyer in a candid interview this spring (15), after showing off a more feminine style since his split from his third wife, Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner, in 2013.
Their divorce was granted in December (14), officially putting an end to the 22-year marriage.
Olympian-turned-reality TV star Bruce Jenner's mom has confirmed her son is transitioning to become a woman.
Kim Kardashian's stepfather has been spotted out and about in Los Angeles looking more and more feminine since splitting from the reality TV queen's mother Kris Jenner in 2013, and it has become one of Hollywood's worst kept secrets that Bruce has set his sights on becoming a woman.
Reports suggest he will open up and talk about his gender bending dreams during an upcoming U.S. TV news special with Diane Sawyer before fronting his own reality series all about his transition - and now his mom Esther is speaking out.
She tells Radar Online, "I just learned about his transition. Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it."
Esther Jenner adds, "I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker. He instills enthusiasm in people. He's gifted. Right now I am more proud of him for what he's allowing himself to do. I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect. I support him whole-heartedly. I just love him like I always have."
Kim Kardashian's stepfather, former Olympian Bruce Jenner, is reportedly preparing to open up about his decision to transition into life as a woman in a candid TV chat with revered U.S. newswoman Diane Sawyer. The retired athlete, who won gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, is in the process of finalising a deal for the interview special with bosses at the ABC news network, according to Buzzfeed.com.
The New York Post reports filming is due to begin this week (begs02Feb15), with the TV chat expected to air in May (15).
Jenner has been at the centre of tabloid speculation for months after showing off a more feminine style following his split from Kardashian family matriarch, Kris Jenner, in 2013.
Their divorce was granted in December (14), officially putting an end to a 22-year marriage.
Bruce Jenner has yet to comment on the rumours he's transitioning, but Kim Kardashian fuelled reports of his lifestyle change last week (ends30Jan15), when she was quizzed about the gossip.
She carefully stated, "I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way. I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right... I think Bruce is very happy, the happiest I've ever seen him."
"He's our dad, so we support him no matter what. And I think when the time is right, he'll talk about whatever he wants to talk about... I feel like that's his journey to talk about."
Jenner, 65, was previously wed twice before - to Chrystie Crownover in the 1970s and actress Linda Thompson in the 1980s. He has six biological children from his three marriages, including model Kendall Jenner and her younger sister Kylie, who appear alongside him and his latest ex, Kris, on family reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
I'm guilty of indulging in some reality television here or there. Most shows are like watching a circus version of humanity. The people have very little shame, and because there isn't really a plot you end up watching them do embarrassing things. Whether you like it or not, reality shows are killing television. Because a lot of people are tuning in and how cheap they are to make, they are taking over and almost ousting great scripted TV. Curious to see what crazy things these stars have done for ratings? Here are 13 moments that is contributing to the decline of TV.
1. Christina Milian getting her nipple pierced.
2. When the Kardashians made a home video that might as well have been an explicit music video.
3. That time a Real Housewife of New York took off her leg and threw it at her enemy...
4. All those times women have sugared up their kids to perform in beauty pageants on Toddlers & Tiaras.
5. TMI! TMI! TMI!
6. Nicole Richie breast feeding her pups.
7. That time we watched Paris Hilton "cleaning" on The Simple Life.
8. The time Kourtney decided to work out while wearing a sex toy.
9. When Phaedra from The Real Housewives of Atlanta decided to pay a stripper a compliment.
10. Honey Boo Boo going crazy with pads.
11. Duck Dynasty's Jase getting peed on by a frog he caught.
12. A teenager being the worst on her birthday on My Super Sweet 16.
13. Snooki getting arrested for public intoxication.

Russell Brand has called for an end to speculation over Bruce Jenner's private life, insisting gossip about the Olympian-turned-reality TV star is akin to "bullying".
Kim Kardashian's stepfather has been seen sporting a more feminine look in recent months, including a longer hairstyle, since his split from wife Kris Jenner, and Brand has now pleaded for the insensitive talk over his image to stop.
In an episode of his Trews web blog, Brand says, "This is bullying. Stop. Bruce Jenner is a human being... Transphobia seems to be the most recent and encouraged form of prejudice, now that racism and homophobia are not tolerated... It's such a celebration of the worst aspects of human values. What this does is it sanctions people being judgemental and cruel... This climate of bullying and judgement and cruelty is a violence of its own nature."
Kim Kardashian's stepfather Bruce Jenner is reportedly in talks for his own reality TV show.
Former Olympian Jenner and his sons Burt, Brandon and Brody, could be starring in their own fly-on-the-wall series, and several production companies are interested in striking a deal, according to TMZ.com.
Jenner stars in Keeping Up with the Kardashians alongside his ex-wife Kris Jenner and stepchildren Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian, as well as Brandon and Brody. Jenner finalized his divorce last month (Dec14).
Kim Kardashian's mum Kris Jenner is officially single again after finalising her divorce from former Olympian Bruce Jenner. As there was no pre-nup, the settlement was quite straightforward with reality TV star Kris scoring the family home. The former couple has divided up various bank accounts and other assets, according to TMZ.com.
Neither Kris nor Bruce will get spousal support and there's no custody provision as their eldest daughter is 17. As such, each parent will cover costs while she's with them.
Kris filed for divorce in September (14), citing irreconcilable differences.
Brad Pitt threw his support behind Rihanna's fundraising efforts with a hilarious 'roast' of the pop princess at her inaugural Diamond Ball Gala on Thursday night (11Dec14). The Fury star welcomed Rihanna to the stage at the function in aid of her Clara Lionel Foundation with a teasing talk about the Bajan singer being led astray by Jay Z when she first moved to the U.S. to pursue her pop career.
Showing the audience a picture of a young Rihanna, Pitt said, "Look at the young girl before you, all full of hopes and dreams, living a humble existence in Barbados, her whole life ahead of her... (But she) soon fell in with a bad crowd led by the dubious and nefarious character known as The Jay Z.
"For those of you not in the know, The Jay Z was an evil impresario known for turning out hit records and ripping insane lyrics and fresh beats. Needless to say it was all downhill from there."
Pitt went on to detail the star's accomplishments, including winning seven Grammys, selling 54 million albums, and having 40 million followers on Twitter.com before showing the crowd an altered image of the star's head on an overweight body eating a sandwich.
He added, "I ask that we stand together by her side and show her our support and our love and say to her the hard words, 'Rihanna put down that sandwich, get off your a** and do something. God damn it, just do something with your life.'"
After the hilarious speech, Rihanna told E! of Pitt's involvement with her cause, saying, "Brad Pitt loves charity, he loves giving back and it was just as simple as that. He was honored to be a part of it, so I'm really happy he's here."
Other stars in attendance at the event in Beverly Hills, California included Big Sean, Lewis Hamilton, Kim Kardashian, Tyrese Gibson and Kris Jenner.
If you thought (or maybe hoped) the Kardashians’ popularity was waning, we think Kim’s bare backside on the cover of Paper magazine proved that wrong. Her aim was to “break the internet” with the racy photos and she nearly succeeded. There are critics who say Kim is overexposed (literally), and we don’t entirely disagree. But we’ve caught ourselves watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its various spinoffs on more than one lazy Sunday. And sometimes we find ourselves liking the "krazy" family, in spite of our better judgment.
1. Whenever Kim “ugly cries.”
She can’t be pretty all the time. That comforts us…and let’s be honest, it makes us laugh too.
2. Every time Khloe is a body image champion.
She’s caught the most flack for her appearance, yet handled it with the best possible attitude. And she’s looking fiercer than ever, might we add!
3. Scott, er, Lord Disick being his ridiculous self.
He legit cracks us up. You know, whenever he’s not being a sloppy drunk mess.
4. Every time Kourtney is not amused.
If there was an award for best b*tch face, Kourt would win hands down. She has no patience for nonsense, and we respect that.
5. When they use a word or phrase that can only be described as "Kardashianese."
From "doll" as a term of endearment to "slore" as a playful insult, the Kardashians take the English language and make it their own.
6. Any time their kids do something really freakin’ cute.
Mason and Penelope seem like well-adjusted children, all things considered.
7. Whenever Kim asks the really important questions.
8. Any time they act way too comfortably around each other.
If you’ve ever had a sibling or even just a really close BFF, you’ll totally be able to relate. Sometimes you're so close that things can get weird.
9. Whenever they go on vacation together.
These episodes give us wanderlust. We love seeing the whole Kardashian clan together in an exotic locale...you know, taking selfies and whatnot. Plus, major family drama always looks better with a beach backdrop.
10. Kourtney and Khloe being each other's favorites.
Whether they're taking Miami or the Hamptons, these two are just better together.
11. Whenever Kim gets taken down a peg - by her own sisters.
And we're thinking not only of this moment, but also of when Kourtney and Khloe failed to give a crap when Kim told them she got the cover of Vogue.
12. The times when Khloe and Scott hang out.
Remember when Khloe hated Scott? We like them so much better when they're partners-in-crime.
13. That time on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami when they got lost in the Everglades.
Ok, so it was totally staged, but it was still hilarious.
14. When Kourtney called Scott out for wearing makeup.
He hangs around with the Kardashians, what do you expect?!
15. The fact that no matter what, you can tell this family legitimately loves each other.
...And we can't help it, we love them too. Overexposed booties and all.

A glamorous L. A. socialite, Kris Jenner achieved fame, first, through her two famous husbands, lawyer Robert Kardashian and his successor, Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, and secondly, through her children Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Robert, Jr. The name "Kardashian" first resonated with America when Jenner's first husband helped defend O.J. Simpson during his murder trial, but became a household name thanks to Kris Jenner's masterminding efforts, resulting in the immensely popular reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" (E!, 2007- ) which chronicled her brood's every drama. Although many felt Jenner was exploiting her children, others were impressed by her business savvy in building a lucrative multimedia empire, including spin-offs "Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami" (E!, 2009- ), "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" (E!, 2011- ) and "Khloé & Lamar" (E!, 2011- ). Dogged by controversy and drama, but clever enough to always profit from it, Jenner published an autobiography <i>Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian</i> and continued to serve as the brains and muscle of the ever-expanding, ever-profitable Kardashian brand. Although she and her family were frequently pop cultural punchlines, Kris Jenner laughed all the way to the bank, proving herself a formidable and fiercely successful entrepreneur.
