The man that brought polos and backpacks to rap, who made shutter shades huge (before college kids killed their appeal), who reminded Sway “It ain’t Ralph tho”, Kanye West himself, has been named GQ’s Most Stylish Man Alive. Minutes ago, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian-West shared the cover for GQ’s “The Most Stylish Men Alive” issue, with Kanye front and center. A man who has been on a non-stop campaign to spread his fashion influence on the world for the past few years and whose shoes re-list on eBay for thousands, was likely an easy choice for GQ. This accolade comes just months after Time named Kanye their “100 Most Influential People” list.
People may think of Kanye West as an asshole, but last night much of the world saw a new side of Kanye West, a side that people who know him best have been preaching about for years. During ABC’s exclusive interview with Bruce Jenner, where the former Olympian shared details about his transition from a man to a woman, Bruce said that it was Kanye that helped his wife Kim Kardashian come around and be accepting of his change. According to Bruce, Kanye told Kim:
“I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.”

While this is far from “news”, it was too on-point for us not to share. Recently paparazzi captured a photo of Kanye West, wife Kim Kardashian-West and daughter North (Nori). While on the surface this looks like a normal picture (seen below), pictured just behind Kim is a little girl that looks nearly identical Michelle Tanner. For our younger readers, Michelle Tanner was a character on the ’90s sitcom “Full House”, played by both Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
We already know Kanye would “marry Kate and Ashley” but maybe he would also clone a baby Mary Kate and Ashley as well. This little girl is clearly the third Olsen twin triplet, just about 26 years removed. Kanye said he wanted a Michelle Tanner for his daughter and some stem-cell genius scientist said “you got it, dude!” You’re not fooling us!
Kanye acceptance of the B.E.T. Honors Visionary Award (which was filmed last month, but aired tonight) was full of laughs, tears, and inspiration. After receiving the award, presented to him from the man who helped introduce Kanye to the world, Dame Dash (founder of Roc-A-Fella Records), Kanye took a jab at his wife’s “broke” ex-boyfriends, talked about his visionary status, and shared a touching story that was told to him by Kim Kardashian, about her late father Rob Kardashian. Watch Kanye’s acceptance of the Visionary Award below.
Although the special filmed last month, tonight aired the B.E.T. Honors: What Extraordinary Looks Like program where Kanye West accepted the Visionary Award. The award was presented to Kanye from Dame Dash (founder of Roc-A-Fella Records), the man who introduced Kanye to the world. The highlights of Kanye’s speech included a hilarious jab at Kim Kardashian’s former boyfriends and a heartfelt story on race, shared to Kanye by Kim, about her late father, Robert Kardashian. Before he passed (as told by Kanye) Robert Kardashian’s car was vandalized with the slur “n*gger lover”, because of his legal defense of OJ Simpson. Soon after, Robert Kardashian tried to chase down the men who vandalized his Bentley. When a young Kim was uncertain why her father was so upset, since he was normally calm and mellow, Robert told his daughter, “one day you may have a black child… and it will be hard.” A powerful story that foreshadowed the harassment that Kim and many others still experience many years later.
Showing a total lack of class, Amber Rose today took shots at her ex-boyfriend Kanye West’s wife Kim Kardashian-West on Twitter, over comments that were not even made from Kim herself. Less than an hour ago on Twitter, Amber Rose tweeted (which has since been deleted) to Khloe Kardashian “I’ll be that lil whore to support my family like ur older sister is a whore 2 support hers. We’re even,” referring to Kim’s sextape with singer Ray J and Khloe Kardashian’s recent comments about Rose. Khloe soon responded telling Rose, “well damn,I didn’t realize I called you a whore,” a tweet which has also since been deleted. A low blow to take shots at someone who didn’t instigate the beef in the first place (whether or not Khloe called Amber a whore), but we guess given all of Kanye and Kim’s recent success, it’s natural to be jealous. Check out some of the fan RTs of the original tweets below.
If you are Kanye West, where do you store your 21 Grammys (the most for anyone that young)? An office, living room, maybe even if its own trophy room? Apparently not, according to his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, Ye stores them anyway in his sock drawer. Take that Grammys.
