'Bound 2' deep dive: Kanye and Kim at the End of the World

Bound-2.jpg

So yes, Kanye West has made a music video with a topless Kim Kardashian, fiancée and mother-of-his-child and free-floating symbol for the dystopia our lives have become. And yes, the music video — set to “Bound 2,” the extremely heartfelt and totally weird love song that ends Yeezus — is about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian riding a motorcycle in front of green-screen images of Monument Valley and space, which makes it look a little bit like a ’70s biker-gang Roger Corman movie shot inside of an iMac screensaver. And yes, you could argue that this music video is basically a softcore porno about Kanye West making wuv to Kim Kardashian on a motorcycle.

It’s hilarious. It’s barely watchable. It’s a serious argument for Saturday Night Live turning “Waking Up With Kimye” into a weekly segment. It is semi-delusional. But could it be that the “Bound 2″ music video is also sneakily profound? That Kanye West, in attempting to create a document of his romance, has also somehow deconstructed that romance? That, in the process of gazing lovingly into his own navel, the rapper also wound up discovering new corners of the human heart? Is “Bound 2″ actually an anti-love story? Or could it be arguing that all love stories are anti-love stories? Could it be the entire story of Creation and Entropy, of the human condition, of the sacred and the profane, of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the Book of Revelations?

Let’s take a look.

Kim Kardashian shows off engagement ring -- PHOTO

Well, this was inevitable.

Like every bride-to-be before her, Kim Kardashian has uploaded a picture of her engagement ring from Kanye West to Instagram, along with the message, “YES!!!” The black-and-white photo features both her 15-carat diamond-clad hand and the AT&T Park logo, which is no doubt experiencing more E!-related publicity than the home of the San Francisco Giants ever expected.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged

Screen Shot 2013-10-22 at 1.19.19 AM

Kanye West, 36, proposed to Kim Kardashian on Monday, October 21, her 33rd birthday. He did it in front of their family and friends after renting out AT&T Park in San Francisco — a park which may now be ruined for many, many people. It’s too soon to say how many, but it’s safe to say AT&T Park is not amused. “I never asked for this,” a blade of its grass told EW exclusively.

Kim said yes! There may have even been a video camera or 600 around. Expect more footage of this moment than you could possibly imagine, coming up on E! tonight, all week, and for the rest of your life.

E! — which in the case of the Kardashians is like a flesh-eating bacteria on a hand that keeps regenerating itself, and I mean that with the utmost respect (#Halloween) — announced the news at 1:13 a.m. ET. I can’t believe they got the exclusive! Do you think they pulled some strings?

The press release/article is a trip, if you’re up for it. And apparently I am!

Donald Trump has a star on the Walk of Fame... but Kim Kardashian never will

Sorry, Kanye — the Hollywood Walk of Fame doesn’t think your girl qualifies for a star of her very own.

The rapper recently declared on Jimmy Kimmel Live that his main squeeze Kim Kardashian deserves a square of sidewalk on Hollywood’s most famous footpath. Unfortunately, a representative for the landmark recently told the New York Daily News that the Walk has no category for reality stars: “They’re not giving a performance, it’s just them going through their daily lives and rituals on TV,” Walk of Fame vice president for media relations Ana Martinez explained. “We honor people who’ve acted in or directed or produced an award-winning show or film. And it’s the same with music, people who maybe have gold records.” (For the record, Martinez told EW the same thing in 2011.)

Surely you can see where she’s coming from — the Walk can’t just be handing out stars all willy-nilly. Mickey Rooney only has two! And clearly, only the most important entertainment luminaries are rewarded with stars on the Walk — you know, like these past recipients:

Please respect Kim and Kanye's privacy as they discuss their sex plans on Twitter

“My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy,” Kim Kardashian told DuJour magazine earlier this year, in a cover interview that accompanied her pregnant bikini photoshoot. “I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything. I’m shifting my priorities.”

Pause for a moment to let that really sink in.

Then please refer to Exhibit A: a photo that Kim posted on Instagram about seven hours ago. Spoiler alert: If you’ve ever wanted to see every contour of the reality star’s famous butt, unshackled by the pesky millimeter of fabric that just barely hides it from view on a normal day — well, then today is your day, my friend:

Kanye West on Kimmel: Epic rant to clarify last rant

After Kanye went on a Twitter rant following Jimmy Kimmel’s spoof of his BBC interview, the two agreed to talk it out on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. And in true Kanye form, he went on another epic rant to clarify his last rant.

“We had a big dumb fight on Twitter but he was nice enough to come on tonight,” said Kimmel, who tried to cut the tension by opening with accessories. He asked about Kanye’s outfit (“Ralph”), was he wearing a new grill (“No, they’ve been in my mouth for three years”), before showing a clip of the skit that started it all (even Kanye was smiling!)

“The truth is, the main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse,” said Kimmel who admitted he didn’t watch the entire BBC interview. Both assured us this wasn’t a publicity stunt. READ FULL STORY

Kanye West vs. Jimmy Kimmel: Real or fake? POLL

Kanye-Kimmel.jpg

Nothing is certain in this post-Twerk-Fail world – which may be why Kanye West’s furious Twitter rant against Jimmy Kimmel has been met with a healthy dose of skepticism. The Associated Press puts it best with this headline: “Kimmel and Kanye West Are at War — Or Are They?”

Let’s examine the facts. First and foremost, Kimmel is a notorious prankster known for tricking passersby with his regular “Lie Witness News” segments, encouraging Emmy viewers to convince the Twittersphere that Tracy Morgan had passed out onstage, and challenging parents to pretend they’ve eaten all their children’s Halloween candy. More importantly, Kanye’s “anger” comes just weeks after Kimmel pulled off his greatest practical joke yet: Convincing the news media and the Internet at large that a girl had actually set herself on fire while trying to twerk.

So if any other celebrity picked a big, public feud with Kimmel, we could be pretty certain that the whole thing was a stunt and nothing more. With Kanye West, though, things are just a bit more complicated.
