Kanye West deletes his Twitter; a nation mourns

Maybe Kanye West is trying to create buzz for a new project, like that rumored Cruel Winter album. Maybe he wanted to cede the virtual spotlight to Kim Kardashian, who could really use more attention. Maybe he just realized he could never top “I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”

Whatever the reason, West has officially deleted every single one of his brilliant, ridiculous tweets — minus an ominous message that simply reads “BE BACK SOON.”

It’s not right, but it’s okay. At least we’ll always have this video of Josh Groban singing Yeezy’s greatest Twitter hits:

'Today' skips 9/11 moment of silence to air interview with Kardashian mom

NBC’s Today show opted not to air live coverage of the 9/11 moment of silence in order to broadcast an interview with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. As the only national broadcast network not to air the segment, NBC has come under fire — ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, Fox & Friends, as well as several cable networks aired the special.

In New York, the local NBC affiliate WNBC aired the live coverage.

The moment of silence — held at Ground Zero in New York City and at the White House in Washington D.C. at 8:46 a.m. — marked the time of day the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center 11 years ago today.

Instead of the 9/11 coverage, Savannah Guthrie and Jenner discussed the finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner’s breast implant replacement, and Kim Kardashian’s relationship with Kanye West. “They are well suited for each other, really, really happy,” Jenner told Guthrie about “Kimye”.

Kim Kardashian wants a star on the Walk of Fame. Does she deserve it? POLL

Grace Kelly. Nicole Kidman. Kim Kardashian? While the reality star isn’t likely to snag a Best Actress statuette anytime soon, someday she might have something else in common with those ladies: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At least, if Kim gets her way.

“I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Kanye West’s current flame told V Magazine in a voice that, according to writer Patrik Sandberg, sounds like “that of a Disney princess… or a phone-sex operator.” Kardashian kontinued, “So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold.”

It’s not entirely true that there are no reality stars on the Walk of Fame; both Paula Abdul and Ryan Seacrest have plaques.  READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian's coming out -- as a Diana Ross lookalike

The Marilyn thing is worn out. Ditto photo shoots that evoke Old Hollywood glamour. So, what’s a Kardashian to do when she wants to play dress-up?

The answer, apparently: Look toward Diana Ross for inspiration. “Definitely a new look for me,” the reality star wrote after posting behind-the-scenes photos of a Supremes-style shoot with Hype Williams. “She ain’t nothin’ but common,” Jennifer Hudson reportedly snorted after seeing the photos.

How do you like Kim K’s styling? And how many secrets do you think she’s hiding in her hair?

It's Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' first anniversary! What would you give the couple?

kim-kardashian-wedding

What a difference a year makes. 365 days ago, Kimberly Noel Kardashian and Kris Humphries vowed to like, love and cherish each other forever in front of 440 adoring guests — and a whole lot of video cameras. A few months later, K Squared renewed their vows on Ellen; days after that, the couple’s four-hour wedding special finally aired on E! over the course of two nights. But on Halloween, Kardashifans and romantics the world over were shocked — shocked — when Kim laid down a bombshell: She was filing for divorce. The course of televised true love never did run smooth.

Ever since Kardashian and Humphries said their “I do”s — and especially since she said “I won’t anymore” — their marriage and its dissolution have been mercilessly picked apart by media outlets. (Including, um, this one.) As with any breakup, only a new relationship could encourage forward momentum; as soon as Kanye West revealed via rap this spring that he had fallen “in love with Kim,” memories of KHump immediately faded.

The weird thing is, though, that Kim and Kris are technically still married. Extended legal bickering means that the ex-couple most likely will not be granted a divorce or an annulment before 2013 — meaning that today is, in fact, their first wedding anniversary. Ain’t love (and the court system) grand? READ FULL STORY

When reality stars sing: Whose tune is the worst of all?

When reality stars sing, the results can be totally inoffensive (Brooke Hogan’s career) or surprisingly decent (Paris Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind” — seriously, it’s like a watered-down “Underneath It All”! In a good way!). More often, though, their songs are auto-tuned nightmares and tone-deaf raps, music that makes you yearn for a sweet shot of Adele to take the pain away.

In that vein, I offer up Teen Mom Farrah Abraham’s new single. Is it the worst piece of “music” in recorded history? It’s possible — though Abraham’s got some serious competition from other misguided reality crooners. Let’s survey the candidates, then decide which is the most rotten apple at the very bottom of the barrel:

Farrah Abraham (Teen Mom), “Getting Up from Rock Bottom”
The Lowdown: Knowing that this 21-year-old mother has endured substance abuse, depression, and her boyfriend’s death might make you feel bad about crapping all over her musical venture. But when a song is this dismal, it’s tough to practice the golden rule. Be sure to turn your speakers down before hitting “Play” on the linked SoundCloud file, unless you’d like to suffer from Pounding Eardrum Syndrome.
Worst Lyrics: Vocal effects are applied so thickly that you can’t really understand a word Abraham is yelping. Blessing in disguise?

George Clooney voted celebrity best fit to be U.S. president

President George Clooney?

A poll this week found that 35 percent of men considered Clooney the celebrity best fit for the presidency. Rapper Jay-Z trailed behind with 20 percent of the vote (maybe he could run for VP?). Even more women — 46 percent –picked Clooney, but New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was their runner-up with 27 percent.

The poll, from lifestyle sites AskMen.com and TrèsSugar.com, asked men and women about entertainment and politics to compile the ”great male” and ”great female survey,” respectively. When asked about real politicians, 79 percent of men thought President Barack Obama was the presidential nominee with the most wingman potential. Obama was also chosen by both men and women as the manliest politician. Really? Did anybody watch Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer?

When asked ”which male public figure are you most tired of hearing about?” 67 percent of men said Justin Bieber. LeBron James and Kanye West tied for second place. With 62 percent of the vote, Kim Kardashian was the female public figure of choice in the same category. It’s only fitting that Kardashian has been linked to Bieber and West, and that James and West are (if you believe Google image search) besties. Women agreed that they’ve had enough of Bieber and Kardashian.

Men selected Emma Stone as the female celebrity they wanted their girlfriends to emulate (51 percent). The nine percent of men who weren’t tired of hearing about her voted for Kardashian.

In a close race, the band the Black Keys was named the ”next Michael Jackson” (33 percent). Keeping with the contradictory results, 23 percent picked Justin Bieber, who came in third after Usher.

Sofia Vergara is highest-paid TV actress, followed by Kardashians and Desperate Housewives

Forbes’ recently released list of top-paid movie actresses reflected Kristen Stewart’s secure foothold in modern pop culture. Now the business magazine has unveiled the list of TV actresses who earned the most between May 2011 and May 2012, and seems if you follow the money in TV land, it leads straight to funny gals and reality stars, with some housewives peppered in here and there.

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara tops the list with $19 million. Anyone who’s seen the Colombia native’s ubiquitous Kmart or Cover Girl ads knows that she’s also doing pretty well for herself with all those endorsement deals.

All four stars of Desperate Housewives, which concluded its series on ABC this May, made the list: Eva Longoria, followed by Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher, and Marcia Cross.

Reality TV has become even more of a major money-maker over the past year. With a wedding special watched by over 10 million people and continuing ratings success for Keeping Up with the Kardashians following the end of her 72-day-long marriage, reality star Kim Kardashian settled in at No. 2 on the list. Not far behind is her sister, Khloe. Last year they didn’t even make the top 10. Also new to the list this year is Bravo favorite and Skinny Girl entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel.

There are some familiar faces among this group, like Marg Helgenberger, whose 12-year-long run on CSI has kept her on the list for many years. Then there are rising stars like Zooey Deschanel, who has become a new comedy force to be reckoned with on Fox’s New Girl.

Last year’s list was topped with a tie between Eva Longoria and Tina Fey. The actresses come in third and fifth, respectively, this year. Check out the entire list below: READ FULL STORY

Kanye West arrives on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'

I don’t understand the cultural obsession with Kanye West’s narcissism. The majority of great musicians — heck, the majority of great artists in every medium — are narcissists. All that really matters is that Kanye West is a narcissist who makes great music. And given that reality TV is a genre built on exhibitionist narcissism, I’ve been waiting with desperate glee for Kanye to arrive on this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. As you probably know, Kanye agreed to be a plotline on this season of Kardashians when he started dating Kim. Last night, Kourtney asked Kim point blank if they were dating. READ FULL STORY
