Taylor Swift’s squad is still going strong — she reunited with several members Friday in NYC, including Gigi Hadid, who is repping her homegirl’s newly adopted snake theme. Gigi and Taylor haven’t been seen together in a while. In fact, Taylor…
As you’ve probably heard, Kanye West has been making quite a splash on Twitter this week.
At first, fans were excited to see the outspoken rapper tweeting again after a lengthy hiatus.
Now, many of them probably wish he would take another long break from social media.
Kanye’s return to Twitter was like watching someone show up to a party with a case of booze to the delight of the revelers … and then proceeding to drink the whole by himself and pass out under the coffee table.
The excitement of those early hours when the rapper first started posting his stream-of-consciousness observations about the world around him quickly gave way to concern for Kanye’s mental state.
While there have been some legitimate reasons to question West’s stability – such as the revelation that he recently battled an opioid addiction – much of what we’ve seen over the past few days has been nothing more than Kanye being Kanye.
Of course, the tweets that have received the most attention have had to do with West’s love of Donald Trump, but his support for the president really shouldn’t come as a surprise.
For one thing, Kanye famously visited Trump in Manhattan during his hectic transition to the White House.
But more importantly – is anyone who’s familiar with the man’s personality actually shocked that Kanye is drawn to a guy who plastered his name all over New York City in giant gold letters?
That’s basically the most Kanye action ever carried out by someone not named Kanye.
To be fair, some people might be taken aback by the extent of ‘Ye’s love (his word, not ours) of Trump.
As you can see, Kanye spent much of today doubling and tripling down on his esteem for 45:
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone,” West tweeted, before acknowledging that he “doesn’t agree with” everything the president does.
West further confused the issue by revealing that he also has deep affection for Hillary Clinton.
“If your friend jumps off the bridge you don’t have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too.”
Among those who seem a bit perplexed by Kanye’s latest tweet-storm is none other than the rapper’s wife, Kim Kardashian:
Kim apparently intervened today to ensure that her husband was being as clear as possible with both his longtime fans and the MAGA folk who just decided today that “Flashing Lights” is an all-time banger.
“My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself,” West tweeted today.
Naturally, this led to another round of Kim-Kanye divorce rumors, but it seems that Mrs. Kardashian-West is actually taking her husband’s political eccentricities in stride.
Earlier this afternoon, in response to jokes about his imprisonment in “the sunken place” – a reference to Jordan Peele’s Get Out – Kanye tweeted a photo of his lavish home, along with a caption reading:
“Do this look like the sunken place.”
The photo was retweeted by Kim, who added her own caption:
“Ummm babe. We had a rule to not show our home on social media! Soooo can we now allow KUWTK filming in the home?”
Yes, there’s so much insanity taking place on Ye’s page these days that it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that he also promised to turn the Grammys into the “Yammys” and claimed that he’s made more money from selling sneakers than the most successful footwear peddler of them all.
“I am currently the single highest paid person in footwear. That means I make more money on shoes than Michael Jordan.
Whatever you say, ‘Ye.
Just make sure to take some time to record a little new music soon, and if you want to load up with high-pitched soul samples, a la The College Dropout, that would be just super with us.
Tristan Thompson actually played basketball on Sunday night.
After scarcely seeing the floor during the opening three games of his teams playoff series against the Indiana Pacers, the disgraced power forward logged seven minutes in Game 4 in a narrow Cavaliers victory.
He grabbed one rebound and scored zero points.
But the point of this article is not to rundown Thompson’s struggles on the court.
It’s to relay the latest rumors about his side piece success in bed.
That is: How does Thompson go about grabbing booty and scoring with women when he cheats on Khloe Kardashian?
According to an Us Weekly insider, the professional athlete has an entire game plan when it comes to his infidelity.
“Tristan slides into girls’ DMs,” this tabloid source explains, expounding as follows:
“He messages girls that way, on Instagram, and then meets up with them.”
Does he just come across these women randomly while searching social media?
Does he meet them, learn their handle, track them down online and then make further contact?
It’s not clear at this time.
What is clear, however, is the type of females to whom Thompson is drawn.
This same source claims to know what Tristan is looking for when he’s looking to drive the ball to the hoops (and we don’t mean in order to help the Cavs win a game!).
“He likes exotic or non-American-looking girls with big butts,” Us Weekly writes.
Hmmm… do the alleged side pieces we’ve heard about so far fit this description?
Scroll away below and you tell us:
About 10 days ago, of course, the Internet nearly exploded upon news of Thompson’s wandering and curious penis going viral.
Both TMZ and The Daily Mail shared surveillance footage from clubs and hotels that appeared to depict Thompson in the act of cheating.
In one video, Kardashian would have been three months pregnant at the time.
In another video, she would have been over eight months pregnant.
Heck, Khloe gave birth to the estranged couple’s daughter just a day after this scandal went public. How crazy and sad is that?!?
The little girl is named True Thompson and Khloe made no indication in her announcement that she has split from Thompson.
Not yet, at least.
“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” Khloe wrote a few days ago, along with a photo of her baby’s nursery.
“Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”
Granted, Khloe may still cut ties with Tristan.
She allegedly SCREAMED at him right after welcoming her first kid into the world.
But what else is she supposed to do or say right now?
Of course she must put on a brave public face and of course her first couple of statements as a mother must make it sound like her baby has two loving and committed parents.
But we very much wonder what will happen going forward, especially as more and more news breaks about Thompson’s cheating.
Us Weekly cites another sources who talks about Tristan’s behavior during NBA All-Star Weekend in February.
He “didn’t look or act like someone who had a pregnant girlfriend,” this witness claims.
“The flirting and body language were definitely inappropriate for someone in a serious relationship expecting a baby.”
We’d say we’re surprised.
But come on: Would anything about Thompson’s behavior surprise you at this point?
Hang in there, Keeks.

Farrah Abraham is currently on one hell of a downward spiral.
Really, it’s hard to tell when the spiral started, since being a mess is kind of Farrah’s whole deal, but things have been way, way worse lately.
In addition to her trademark word salad and her unwillingness to be civil to any other human being ever, she’s been embracing her porn star side again lately in a mighty big way.
She’s been getting laser treatments done on her vagina and documenting those treatments for us all to see, which has been … well, it’s not been all that great.
She’s also been doing some live streams with a company called Cam Soda — special little videos in which she masturbates on the internet.
Actually, she just did one of those videos. She was all set up to do a special Halloween one last night, but instead of doing anal like she promised, she just wore some lingerie and ranted about MTV.
Because, as she revealed, MTV fired her from Teen Mom OG yesterday.
In a big ol’ rant on Instagram, Farrah accused MTV of exploiting her and her daughter, Sophia, on the show, but said they “let me go because as a Business Mogul I act like an adult and take part in adult promotions and activities that other adults do for FREE or in private!”
She claims that when they fired her, they told her that her “brands press out shines the Teen mom Viacom press,” which means something to her, we’re sure.
“Sad such a phenomenal show will no longer have its biggest talent on the show because of women hating, sex shaming, hate crimes, selfish, Weinstein company power trip behaviors against a professional hard working, honest mother,” she wrote.
Farrah also said that she’s “proud of myself not giving in to be sex shamed by Viacom network,” which is interesting.
That part sort of makes it sound like she was issued an ultimatum: do Teen Mom or do the cam girl stuff, but not both.
If that’s true, then there’s a small chance she didn’t actually get fired, since she didn’t really do anything but rant on last night’s live stream.
Seriously, she didn’t do anything — the company is having to refund viewers who, for whatever reason, paid to see Farrah masturbate.
Back in her rant, Farrah wrote “Cheers to basically winning against hurtful disgusting executives who do way more in their personal lives then what I could ever be judged for.”
“I will never be broken by hateful wrong people and if everyone else is brain washed, on drugs, pills, scheming thinking their at the top of their power trips I WISH to always be apart.”
She announced that “I give this chapter of my life to GOD & all of his glory & to justice in court. If God’s for you who dare be against you.”
Based on everything that Farrah has said about what happened yesterday, she’s pretty clear: MTV fired her because of the live streams and the sex toys and all of her various ties to the adult industry.
But according to a new report from The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, that’s not exactly the whole story.
It’s part of the story, of course — a source says that “Basically, they could explain away the first time” she did porn, “when she did her ‘Backdoor’ tape because it was made and released while the show was on hiatus.”
“They brought her back on for OG because they could explain away that young people make mistakes sometimes, but now that she is back in the adult industry again, they can’t use that excuse anymore.”
“Another factor,” however, “is that an overwhelmingly large portion of the viewing audience simply does not like Farrah, and not just because of the adult stuff.”
“They are not losing one of the more popular girls.”
Ain’t that the truth?
Farrah is, without a doubt, the most hated of any of the moms.
We saw Amber Portwood beat her boyfriend on the show, and we saw Jenelle Evans high on heroin, but nobody inspires hatred quite like Farrah.
The hatred isn’t limited to fans either, if you can believe it.
“She creates a miserable filming experience for everyone involved on her crew,” another source says.
“Several former crew members have actually refused to film with Farrah, so it’s just not worth the drama and backlash for everyone involved with the show anymore.”
As strange as it sounds, it just might be true.
Unlike her fellow Teen Mom hot messes, Farrah’s segments on the show aren’t really all that interesting anymore. We know she’s going to yell at someone, we know she’s not going to make any sense.
She doesn’t cause controversy so much as she just causes annoyance.
How do you feel about Farrah’s firing?
If you’ve followed the career of Ted Cruz, you know that the Texas senator is a hard-line conservative who might also be the Zodiac Killer.
Cruz is nothing if not passionate about his work, but legislating away the right of poor people to exist and sending encoded descriptions of your latest murder to Bay Area media outlets can take a toll on even the most dilligent weasel demon.
So it’s not surprising that the Cruz Man decided to unwind with a little bizarrely specific fetish porn last night.
It is surprising, however, that he felt the need to broadcast his preferences on Twitter.
Yes, Ted pulled a Weiner in more ways than one, unintentionally (we hope) sharing a very NSFW video clip with his 3 million followers.
Cruz “liked” the clip late Monday night, and it was gone by Tuesday morning, but not before spending a surprisingly long period of time at the top Senator Cruz’s timeline.
Obviously, it’s possible the clip was shared by a Cruz staff member, but of course we prefer to think that the senator personally enjoyed the two-minute depiction of an incestuous threesome so much that he simply had to share his rave review with the world.
If you’ve spent any time amongst the more quick-witted denizens of Twitter, then you won’t be surprised to learn that the jokes flew fast and furious in the minutes after the world learned more than it ever wanted to know about Ted Cruz’s spank material.
But there’s one man who wasn’t the least bit surprised by the news that Texas Teddy enjoys manipulating his pole.
Craig Mazin was Cruz’s roommate at Princeton, and the screenwriter was mining his former bunk buddy’s masturbatory habits for comedic gold long before the rest of us were forced to imagine Ted “handling his delegates.”
“Now imagine Ted Cruz is doing this four feet below you in the bottom bunk bed. Yes, my misery very much appreciates your company,” Mazin tweeted last night.
Having waited for this day for nearly thirty years, Mazin obviously didn’t stop there:
“Sadly, the fact that Ted Cruz jacks off to mediocre porn spam is the most human thing we can say about him. This is actually his high point,” he added.
With no fear of putting too fine a point on it, Mazin continued:
“I never wanted this for any of you. I thought maybe I’d feel better if two or three people knew. Not six billion. That said? I FEEL BETTER.”
Hopefully, someone in Cruz’s office is coating the senator in a healing salve to soothe his savage burns … and hopefully Ted’s not getting off on it.
We live in an age in which the media cycle operates at such a breakneck speed that a man who boasted of grabbing women “by the p-ssy” was elected president just a few weeks after his admission of sexual assault went public.
So in all likelihood, this will all be forgotten by the time Cruz launches his inevitable 2020 presidential campaign.
But don’t worry – Ted will inevitavly trip over his own dong many times between now and then.
It’s important to remember that this isn’t the first Ted Cruz sex scandal.
Hell, it’s not even the second Ted Cruz sex scandal.
This is a guy so prone to self-sabotage that he maintained his connection to Josh Duggar after the world learned Duggar had molested four of his sisters.
And don’t get us started on all those grisly murders Cruz committed in San Francisco in the ’70s!
