Kanye West Says Beyoncé Is Inspired By Kim Kardashian


Thus guy is an idiot…..

Originally posted on TIME:

When Beyoncé is working on a new album, she keeps pictures of Kim Kardashian on the wall to inspire her — that’s according to Kardashian’s husband Kanye West.

In a characteristically candid interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Kanye said that Beyoncé takes inspiration from images of his wife because “Kim represents powerful women.”

He added that the two women love and respect each other, and have a relationship with a “LeBron James-Kobe [Bryant] element to it.”

That wasn’t all he opened up about. On the subject of Kim’s notorious Paper magazine cover, Kanye said representation of her body type is an important precedent to set for younger generations: “My daughter has a chance of being shaped like my wife, so … between this age and the age when she’s like that, I’m gonna be fighting for that shape to be considered the highest of class … or at…

Ralph Lauren’s nephew put Americana through a blender, and this is what came out



Originally posted on Quartz:

A deep vein of Americana runs through the designs of Greg Lauren, the artist-turned-fashion-designer who happens to be the nephew of Ralph Lauren. But unlike the elder Lauren’s polished, romantic ideals of the American woman and the American man, Greg Lauren’s is deconstructed, reshaped, and mashed up.

“I love the officer’s lounge in classic war movies, and I love the bar in Star Wars,” he said after his fall/winter 2015 presentation at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 18. The set of his show was a camp populated by, as he put it, “artistic nomad warriors” of an indeterminate time and place. “It references a military camp,” he explained. “You don’t know whether it’s the Revolutionary War; is it Gladiator, is it Game of Thrones, is it Mad Max?”

In its four years, the line has earned Lauren fans such as Kanye West, who Lauren dressed for the 2015 Grammy Awards, and

After Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre Still Runs CBS

Originally posted on TIME:

Last night, CBS’s sitcom Two and a Half Men hit the end of the road, wrapping up its twelfth and final season. It was the end of a sitcom that, at its peak, was world-beatingly popular, but it’s not really the end of an era. Its creator, Chuck Lorre, has seen his sensibility come to dominate CBS.

His power was proven in the 2011 standoff over Charlie Sheen’s public disparagement; Sheen, the star of the show and the seeming origin of its louche humor, was fired, and the show rolled on. Sheen was dispensable, but the show, and its creator, were absolutely not. This was really just a ratification of what already seemed apparent. By that point, Lorre’s The Big Bang Theory was a hit and Mike & Molly, which he executive-produces, had begun. Those two shows continue on CBS to this day, while a third, Mom, bears…

Watch an Adorable Pug Puppy Reenact This Year’s Oscar Nominees



Originally posted on TIME:

Still haven’t seen all the Best Picture nominees in time for the Academy Awards this Sunday? No problem! Just watch this video, created by The Pet Collective, which reenacts all eight films in just three minutes using a painfully cute baby pug.

All the movies get new, dog-appropriate titles, like American Sniffer, Selmutt and Puphood. The pug totally nails all the roles — even if some, like Stephen Hawking, are maybe a tad insensitive. Mostly, though, it’s just really, really cute.

This video should get all the Oscars instead of the actual movies.
