Is “i Hit It First” A Cry For Help? A Grief Counselor Assesses Ray J’s State Of Mind

DJ Premier Opens A Gangstarr Pop Up Shop For The Holidays

It can be especially difficult to seeone’s ex happier with someone else. And there are plenty of waysboth healthy or unhealthyto react to this.The song prompted at least one editor here to posit the question of whether or not Ray J was still stuck in the middle of the five stages of grief (“‘I Hit It First’ is classic bargaining, right?'”). “Stages of grief is really wrong,” explainsSusan J. Elliott, the author of Getting Past Your Breakup: How To Turn A Devastating Loss Into The Best Thing That’s Ever Happened To You . “Its more like phases. Phases, you go in and out of.” Susan would know. She’s a best-selling author and New York City-based grief counselor with decades of experience, and someone who has experienced the painful loss of a loved one. When read the lyrics of Ray J’s single, she laughed (“That’s pretty good!”) before noting: “Hes obviously angry at something, and I can tell you as someone who was deeply in love with someone who died, thats the angriest youll ever be in your life.” That anger official site might be the culmination of a decade’s worth of, ahem, interesting behavior from Ray J following the release of the tape.

Kanye West: Love’s More Important Than Branding

His posts, frequently in all caps, would go from random, humorous comments to epic rants, to an 80-plus-tweet business plan for “DONDA.” He’s since scaled waaaaay back on the 140-character updates, and we’ll admit that we miss them. September 2009: Even with his noted troublemaking at past awards shows, no one — including West — had figured out by September 2009 that they weren’t the best places for him to hang out. What transpired at the MTV event is one of the most infamous moments in live TV, as he interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for the Best Female Music Video. September 2008: Yeezy’s beef with paparazzi didn’t just Kim Kardashian sex tape buy start in May 2013, when he hit his head on a street sign while trying to get away from them. No, this battle of wills goes all the way back to September 2008, when West was arrested on felony vandalism charges at Los Angeles International Airport after he got into a skirmish with two paps and allegedly damaged their cameras.

Kanye West’s follow-up to ‘Yeezus’ to contain just ‘eight songs’

In a recent interview, the rapper revealed that he plans to release the follow-up to this year’s ‘Yeezus’ in the summer of 2014 . Now, during a talk with architect Jacques Herzog at the Moore Building in Miami, as a part of the city’s Art Basel conference, he’s added more info on his new album plans. “I think my next album is going to be eight songs,” he said . “It’s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can’t take anything else away. [Yeezus] was very, very designed.” He added: “I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here.

Kanye West moves his own mountains at Toyota Center

It`s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can`t take anything else away. Yeezus was very, very designed,” West said. “I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn`t made Yeezus, I wouldn`t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here.” It seems West`s studio sets are getting shorter and shorter, `Yeezus` has been his shortest to date with just 10 songs and a running time of 40 minutes, which differs from the usual 12-13 songs that West usually settles on.

Deconstructing The Grammy Snubs: How Miley Cyrus’ And Kanye West’s Antics Killed Their Awards Attention

Williams’ and Timberlake’s success speak for themselves — they’re charming, talented performers with longevity who can find acclaim for collaborations across all genres as well as within their own solo work. And, lo and behold, none of them come off as antic-ridden, capital-letter Celebrities. It’s not that West and Cyrus should tame their personalities for the sake of awards recognition. No one adores a dull pop star.

Kanye West’s Most Egotistical Comparisons Ever

He had launched into the fourth of five segments FIGHTING, RISING, FALLING, SEARCHING, FINDING in his touring Yeezus spectacle. His face was completely covered by a mask (as it was for most of the show). And it was all expectedly epic and sometimes confounding. What do I get in trouble for?

Kim Kardashian Makes Super-Fan’s Dreams Come True at Kanye West Concert

REX FEATURES In our eyes Kim Kardashian is perfect so it’s difficult to believe she wouldn’t get along with another human being. But things seemed a little tense between the Kueen of reality television and actress Lindsay Lohan when they sat as far apart as they possibly could in the VIP section of a Kanye West concert last month. Kim once worked as the Mean Girls star’s personal stylist and shopper before she rose to mega-fame on Keeping Up With the Kardashians but the pair hardly seemed to acknowledge each other during Kanye’s gig at the Barclay’s Center in New York. However, it appears the pair now want the world to know they are getting along just fine – they posed for a picture together at the Art Basel launch in Miami on Wednesday. Anyone else feel a bit sorry for Lindsay?

Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian Dominate Yahoo Search in 2013

A Kardashian-obsessed twitter user, who goes by the name Myleeza Kardash, was at Kanyes show when she tweeted , I’m looking for Kim SO hard while we wait for Yeezy to come out. Wya sis? Much to her surprise, the reality queen wrote back , I’m sending someone to go get you so you can come sit with me!!! @MyleezaKardash Need your seat # & section. DM me ASAP!!! After being escorted to the VIP section with her friend, Sara, in tow, Myleeza hung out with Kim and pal Brittny Gastineau for the remainder of the concert, after which she and Sara were taken backstage to meet Kanye West. While many stars would pass enthusiastic fans off to their handlers as soon as possible, Myleeza says that Kim and Kanye hung out and talked to the girls for a while following the show, joking with the pair and insisting upon taking photos for them to commemorate the event. Amazed by Kims generosity, Myleeza thanked her idol following the concert, writing, From the bottom of my heart, sis THANK YOU.

Kanye West: Not Cool Anymore Because of Kim Kardashian?

She proudly captioned the snap: “Art lessons! Jeff Koons & Nori #ArtBasel.” Koons met North at Art Basel in Miami Beach on Thursday – perhaps Kim wants to introduce her offspring to some culture from an early age? He has immortalised various high profile pop culture icons in his time and his work aims to transform everyday objects into imaginative sculptures. He has even worked with Lady Gaga. Maybe he’s planning a collaboration with the Kardashian/West family?

Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan have awkward meeting after Kanye West gig snub

It makes sense if you think about it. “When putting two egotistical, self serving individuals together, you’ll create a rather vile spark,” says California-based PR expert Angie Meyer-Olszewski. “And in times of economic hardship across the country, bragging about materialism is typically frowned upon. The Kardashian brand is a sinking ship.” “Anybody who jumps on board will eventually fall. A successful celebrity in his own right, Kanye made a horrible strategic decision by engaging with Kim.” Not only that, they procreated and made North West !

The proceeds will go directly to the communities theyre serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives, Kardashian wrote on her auction page. My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. However, crisis communications expert Glenn Selig is just one of many disturbed by the slim donation percentage and told FOX411 that typically most bidders assume the majority goes to the stated cause. When you say something is for the charity, the assumption is much more than 10 percent goes to charity. And when the charity angle is leveraged to boost bidding or to drum up news coverage, when only 10 percent goes to charity people likely will be taken, he said. It is wrong to mislead the public. Sources tell Fox411 that Kardashian does make a profit from the auction which ended on Sunday but contrary to multiple reports, it isnt 90 percent.

Kim Kardashian Strolls Through Nyc With Daughter North West

4, 2013. Credit: PacificCoastNews.com It looks like North West is getting plenty of “Mommy and Me” time these days. The five month old tot, whose father, Kanye West , recently compared her to British royalty , was spotted out with mother Kim Kardashian on Dec. 4. PHOTOS: Kim’s post-baby body style Kardashian, 33, looked sleek and chic as she pushed the baby’s stroller out of their apartment in NYC’s SoHo.

Those who keep track of Kanye’s exploits might remember that he is a guy who prefers to do everything big and public. For example, when he proposed to Kim back in October, the man literally rented out the entire San Francisco AT&T park, hired a 50-piece orchestra and had the words PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!! light up on a giant screen. If that won’t get a girl to marry you, nothing will! However, Kim Kardashian might not be your regular, run-of-the-mill bride-to-be, since she’s been married before. At one time, she said I do to NBA player Kris Humphries in a ceremony that cost $10 million (7,34 million). But that doesn’t seem to have impressed her deeply, since she filed for divorce a mere 72 days later.

PHOTOS: Who’s who in the Kardashian clan These days, a typical card is a family photo that may make some passing reference to the holiday but is mostly a contrived visual meant to portray mom, dad and the kids in a happy, healthy glow however far from reality that may be. When the kids were smaller, thats pretty much the kind of card the Kardashians sent out. They didnt really stray far from the norm until they got their TV show. Then, the glamour shots began to creep in, but even last years card was not far outside the norm (though it looked less like Christmas twitter and more like a New Years celebration with the whole family dressed in white, champagne at the ready and confetti scattered in the air). Yes, this year the Kardashians card does not exactly scream family togetherness, but it is wrong to say it lacks any touch of the season. Over on the left side, theres a golden, 6-foot-high dollar sign.

Talk-show host Conan thinks he might have discovered just one more, and it’s a big one. In the video above, Conan pulls up a life-size version of the Kardashian Christmas card and goes on to analyze the seemingly chaotic amalgamation of elements thrown in there to confuse people. There’s Bruce Jenner in a tube, a magazine of Kanye on top of a pile, some Illuminati symbols hidden in the background and Kim’s oh-so-lovely and yet oh-so-pricey dress. But what really grabs attention is when Conan folds the entire card like an origami swan to reveal a message written in pink neon letters WE SUCK. Was this intentional or an accident?
