Kanye West Shares a Touching Memory of His Mother in Letterman Interview

Animated GIF

In a sneak peek at his upcoming interview on David Letterman‘s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the artist tells a touching story about his mom, who died in 2007 at age 58 of heart disease while suffering multiple post-operative factors after plastic surgery.

“This would have been the funnest time of her life, to have those kids running around that house and being able to go and buy them toys,” says West, who just welcomed his fourth child, son Psalm, with wife Kim Kardashian West,

The camera then pans to Kardashian West in the audience, lovingly watching on.

“I remember my mother bought me a bear that was multicolored,” West continues. “I was very into [contemporary Japanese artist] Takashi Murakami at that time. … So she bought it. She said it kind of feels Takashi Murakami. I was sort of like, ‘I don’t want that, that ain’t no Takashi Murakami bear!’ “

“Then she passed a few weeks after,” he recalls. “I did everything I could to find that bear and place that bear on top of all the Takashi Murakami stuff I had in the house.”

In another clip, Kanye West claimed liberals bully supporters of Donald Trump after being challenged on his political views by David Letterman on the comedian’s Netflix series.

According to The Daily Beast, West was the first to bring up his Trump support with Letterman in the midst of a conversation about the #MeToo movement.

“This is like my thing with Trump — we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” he said.

Kanye went on to explain that his decision to wear a “Make America Great Again” hat is “not about politics” but rather his way of showing people they shouldn’t be afraid to show their support for the president.

When speaking about Republican-led voter suppression efforts during the midterm elections, the host also questioned whether West’s support might be indirectly hurting the people he claims to help.

“So if I see a person that I admire talking about Donald Trump can think whatever he does,” Letterman said, “I wonder if those thoughts, indirectly, aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.”

Lady Gaga changed into not one, not two, not three, but four different looks on the red carpet as she made her grand entrance to the annual fashion ball.

Designed by Brandon Maxwell, Gaga’s extravagant outfits began with a voluminous pink dress with Maxwell and a number of men in tow flipping her gown in the wind. Then she stripped down to a black dress, holding an umbrella, before going back to a pink number before settling on black lingerie as she carted around a “House of Gaga” cart of goodies, including two bottles of Rose.

Harlem-based designer Dapper Dan, who’s currently collaborating with Gucci, hit the red carpet in a red jacket embroidered with light blue flowers.

He dressed many of tonight’s guests, including model Karlie Kloss, who is in a super-short mini dress featuring statement puff sleeves.

Some background about Dapper Dan: He outfitted a generation of gangsters, rappers, and athletes by putting high fashion logos onto bespoke pieces more tailored for the streets. His Harlem store was shut down in the early ’90s after the houses whose logos he pulled without authorization took notice.

Fast forward to 2017, when Gucci was being called out for ripping off one of his bootleg designs, leading to an official collaboration, and the Italian house backing his own atelier.

Tiffany Haddish walked the Met Gala red carpet Monday night in a metallic zebra suit by Michael Kors, complete with 57,000 sequins — but it turns out she had a secret accessory in her purse.

Fried chicken.

Beyoncé may have hot sauce in her bag, but Haddish? She came prepared with what appeared to be fried chicken in a plastic bag, which was visible as she flashed the contents of her purse to E!.

As it turns out, Haddish spoke to W Magazine in advance of the event and explained that she had been planning to bring the chicken for a while because she left last year’s Met Gala still hungry!

“Last year, I was so hungry,” she told the magazine. “This year, I got me a bigger bag. Gonna put some fried chicken in it. Don’t tell nobody till tomorrow. I’ve already called a few people that I know are going like, ‘So, I’m going to bring the chicken. You bring the hot sauce, okay?’”

Katy Perry showed up wearing a giant chandelier

Katy Perry always takes the Met Gala theme seriously.

And what better motif for her than “camp,” a look the singer has embodied on red carpets for more than a decade?

Perry went all-out this year, as a life-sized chandelier with electric candles and dripping with crystals, designed by Moschino’s Jeremy Scott.

Rapper Cardi B showed up to the Met Gala in a dramatic burgundy gown that extended into a full quilted circular train.

The dress, which is trimmed in feathers, was designed by Thom Browne. She also has a matching headpiece on to complete the head-to-toe scarlet look.

According to Vogue, the dress is filled with down. It’s decorated with 30,000 feathers, and it took 35 people more than 2,000 hours to make

Zendaya brought the house down at tonight’s Met Gala with an entrance that rivaled Lady Gaga’s. The actress, who wore a black Tommy Hilfiger gown, was walking up the stairs when her stylist, Law Roach, waved a wand and transformed her dress into a glowing version of the iconic baby blue gown worn by the Disney princess.

Speaking to Vogue, Roach said it’s more than a dress, it is mirroring a real-life transformation for the actress, from the Disney Channel to her upcoming drama “Euphoria.” “[It’s] the total opposite of every character I think she’s ever played and a huge stretch from ‘K.C. Undercover,’” he said. “It’s almost like this is the last hoorah and the last time people will identify her as a Disney princess — which isn’t a bad thing.”

Kanye West Takes Coachella to Church With Easter ‘Sunday Service’

Image result for kanye west coachella 2019

Kanye West brought his “Sunday Service” to Coachella on Easter morning, as dozens of musicians, singers and dancers performed a set of spiritual songs, covers and songs by the rapper himself — including a new one called “Water” — for an audience of thousands from a hilltop on the festival grounds in Indio, Calif. While he rapped briefly on a couple of songs, West was generally the ringleader of the service, as he has been on previous incarnations in California and Oregon since he began leading the service early in January.

To reach the site, Coachella attendees walked some distance from the festival’s parking section to a cordoned-off area of the campground. A full band — complete with harp — was set up on the plateaued top of a circular mound covered with freshly laid sod. A waist-high fence surrounded the hill, which had a sort of VIP area extending up another grassy hill behind the stage. Across the field, patrons could purchase food and beverages including orange juice, coffee and smoothies, plus chicken and waffles, breakfast tacos and burritos. Yet many more were interested in the “church clothes,” — a.k.a. merch — for sale, including sweatshirts for $165-$225, “Jesus Walks” socks for $50, $70 T-shirts reading “Trust God” on the front and “Sunday Service at the Mountain” on the back.
