The man who considers himself to be Kanye West’s stepfather, Ulysses Blakeley, says Kanye wouldn’t be married to Kim Kardashian if his mother Donda West was still alive today. In a recent interview he said, “If Donda was alive he wouldn’t be married to Kim Kardashian because Donda would have interacted with Kim and Kanye, so as to expose the incompatibility of their relationship,” he continued, “I could imagine them all at the dinner table and how uncomfortable it would be.” The he said, “The people he’s created into a new family are the worst for him. They’re not artistic, Kanye is artistic. I don’t think it’s the healthiest thing for him.”
Speaking of Kim and Kanye, Kim has opened up about why Kanye West was on his phone at The Cher Show after he was called out for his bad theater etiquette. She says, “Honestly, he was on his phone taking notes. He definitely wanted to apologize for being on his phone because he’s like, ‘I get it, I’m a performer and I love people when they are in the moment.’ But he was, like, taking stage notes and taking things in his phone, so I get it. He was like, ‘I’m going to work on my etiquette.’ But he loved the show.” Kim, who is a huge Cher fan, continues, “I thought, ‘Oh, what a nice husband. He is just coming to support me and, like, has no interest.’ He was up there, like, singing her song. He was definitely into it, so it was really cute.”

She said, “I been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now. We’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners… We got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.” She continued, “It’s nobody’s fault. It’s just like, I guess we grew out of love. But, we’re not together any more. It might take time to get a divorce.

Yoga was invented more than 5,000 years ago in India, but Gwyneth Paltrow thinks she’s the one who’s responsible for making it popular in the U.S. During a recent interview she said, “Forgive me if this comes out wrong, [but] I went to do a yoga class in L.A. recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, ‘Have you ever done yoga before?’ And literally I turned to my friend, and I was like, ‘You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.'” Gwyneth goes on to suggest that she was ahead of her time when she started embracing a healthy lifestyle two decades ago. “That was the beginning of people thinking I was a crackpot,” she explained. “Like, ‘What do you mean food can affect your health, you f**king psycho?’ I remember when I started doing yoga and people were like, ‘What is yoga? She’s a witch. She’s a freak.’”
Ariana Grande’s video for “Thank U, Next” has surpassed Adele’s “Hello” to become the fastest video to be viewed 100 million times. It only took 4 days, it took Adele’s “Hello” 5 days to be viewed 100 million times.
Speaking of Ariana, she told fans yesterday to quit it with the cyberbullying after ex-fiancé Pete Davidson opened up the day before about being trashed online about their split. She said, “I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others. I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity,” she went on, “I care deeply about Pete and his health…I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.” Pete had written on Monday, “I’m trying to understand how, when something happens to a guy, the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today’s climate where everybody loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling.”
Meanwhile it would seem Pete blocked Ariana on Instagram. Before Ariana urged fans to be “gentler” to Pete in the wake of their split, she sent a DM to a fan on Twitter and said she couldn’t see his statement about being cyberbullied. In other words, she was blocked by him.
Travis Scott lashed out late Monday at online rumours he’s cheating on baby mama Kylie Jenner. “Trolls always wanna create some fake s**t to destroy real love,” the 26-year-old rapper wrote on his Instagram Story. “I hate acknowledging s**t, but quit trying to take joy from s**t that’s good. I pray God blocks out all evil.” In a different post he went on to say, “Me and my wifey sturdy.”
20 Million People Watched Kurt Russell’s Santa Claus Movie in its First Week: To say Netflix struck gold by putting KURT RUSSELL in a Santa suit for “The Christmas Chronicles” would be an understatement. The movie amassed 20 MILLION viewers in its first week. Netflix says, quote, “If every one of those was a movie ticket purchase, that’s a $200 million opening week. Even movies that go on to $1 billion don’t typically do that in the first week.” Of course, it’s really not legit to make that comparison. There’s no way to calculate how many of the people who watched this thing in the comfort of their own homes would get off their butts, drive to theaters, and PAY to see it. Still, 20 million in a week is impressive. And Netflix bragged that it’s, quote, “a testimony to what we can bring to the market for storytellers today that we couldn’t have ten years ago.”
