  • Kanye West Tweets Apology to Beck Following Breakdown During Radio Interview

    Nicole Pajer at Yahoo Celebrity 12 hrs ago

    Kanye West, is that you?

    The rapper capped an emotional Thursday by publicly apologizing to Beck for rushing the stage when the indie-rock star was awarded the Grammy for Album of the Year over Kanye pal Beyoncé. Kanye later said backstage that Beck should have given up the award to "respect artistry."

    Kanye later admitted that he hadn't actually even heard Beck's album before making such a claim. Today, he took to Twitter today to extend an olive branch to Beck... and then to Bruno Mars, whom Kanye also has beefed with.

    I would like to publicly apologize to Beck, I’m sorry Beck.

    I also want to publicly apologize to Bruno Mars, I used to hate on him but I really respect what he does as an artist.

    I also would love for Bruno to sing this hook on this song 88 Keys / Puff and I produced… I even asked Tyler to shoot the vid.

    "Louise Wilson was the baddest professor of all time of any fashion school ever — notorious for not letting people stop at a 7 or 8 ever, pushing people to a 12."

    It was a rare time that Kanye was at a loss for words.

  • Kelly Osbourne Accepts Giuliana Rancic's Apology for Zendaya Remarks

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 13 hrs ago

    Everything seems to be cool again with Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic.

    The Fashion Police co-hosts had always been friendly while filming their show, but Osbourne was none too pleased with Rancic earlier this week. In fact, Rancic upset a lot of people when she commented on the show's Oscar special that actress-singer Zendaya's dreadlocked hair made Rancic think Zendaya smelled of patchouli oil and weed.

    Osbourne tweeted Tuesday that she was "seriously questioning" continuing on the show. But after Zendaya graciously accepted the apology Rancic issued on E! News Tuesday, Osbourne forgave, too.

    It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger! #ThisTooShallPass

    That's quite a change from Osbourne's tweet one day earlier.

    Osbourne was undoubtedly inspired by Zendaya's kind response to Rancic's apology.

    The embattled 77-year-old entertainer issued a new statement ahead of his comedy show scheduled in Louisiana on Friday, which will go on as planned (many have not).

    “Dear Fans: For 53 years you have given me your love, support, respect and trust. Thank you! I can’t wait to see your smiling faces and warm your hearts with a wonderful gift — LAUGHTER. I’m ready!" the once beloved comedian said. “I thank you, the theatre staff, the event organizers and the Lafayette Community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment. Hey, Hey, Hey — I’m far from finished. Sincerely, Bill Cosby.”

    The comedian has denied wrongdoing through his legal team, but has largely remained silent.

    Wonder if he will give the joke another go tomorrow.

  • Scarlett Johansson: Nothing 'Creepy or Inappropriate' About John Travolta

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 14 hrs ago

    Scarlett Johansson has come to John Travolta's defense after a picture of him greeting her on the red carpet at the Oscars became an Internet meme.

    "There is nothing at all strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta," Johansson said in a statement to the Associated Press. She also called her A Love Song for Bobby Long co-star a "class act" and noted that she hadn't seen him "in some years and it is always a pleasure to be greeted by him.

    Johansson further explained that the photo was "an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was totally sweet and totally welcome. That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live. Yet another way we are misguided, misinformed and sensationalized by the 24-hour news cycle."

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 15 hrs ago

    What do you do when your wedding anniversary happens to fall on a Thursday? You post a #TBT to your wedding, of course. And if you happen to be Gisele Bündchen , 34, one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, and your husband happens to football dynamo Tom Brady, 37, then you post a rare photo on Instagram for us mortals to ooh and aah over.

    "Magical day! #tbt," she wrote. " Dia mágico! "

    And surely that day — February 26, 2009 — was special, given the looks of that insanely cool cake topper alone. It practically classifies as a piece of artwork! (This is the point where brides-to-be who are watching their wallets curse their budget restrictions. If only!)

    But all joking and jealousy aside, look at these two. Look how in love they look! And look how drop-dead amazing her sparkling wedding dress is!

    Happy sixth anniversary, Gisele and Tom! Here's to your next.

  • Kylie Jenner Just Got a Lot of Decorating Money Thanks to $100 Million Deal

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 15 hrs ago

    Already have a lot of feelings about 17-year-old Kylie Jenner throwing down $2.7 million for her first house? Just wait until you hear the kind of money she is going to have to decorate it with.

    Kris Jenner just got her girls, Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie a new four-year, $100 million deal at the E! network, sources close to the family tell Yahoo. That means you get at least four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and their spinoff shows. Get excited! (E! has declined to confirm the financials of the deal and is downplaying the $100 million figure.)

    That nice chunk of change will come in handy for the youngest Jenner, Kylie, who just purchased a new five bedroom party pad in The Oaks, the same gated community in Calabasas, California, where Kourtney and Khloé live.

    So how might she put that cash to use? Kris talked to E! Newsabout how Kylie plans to decorate.

  • Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Epic Backyard, from a Playground for North to a Pair of Pools

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 17 hrs ago

    While Kim and Kanye are away, North West will play. In a backyard fit for the World's Most Important Toddler.

    On Wednesday, X17 got photos of workers installing a behemoth jungle gym behind Kim and Kanye's $20 million Hidden Hills home. This thing's got everything: there are two sets of monkey bars, several slots for slides, and presumably a swing or two will be installed later.

    The jungle gym is just the latest addition to what was already a dream home. Kim and Kanye bought the house in August of last year. It has two pools, a vineyard, eight bedrooms, a 1,050 square foot outdoor patio for entertaining, and a guest house, which the couple has converted into a recording studio for Kanye. The new jungle gym is behind the pool house on the edge of the 3.5-acre property.

  • Kim and Kanye's Crazy Day at the Brit Awards, From Fast Food to Face-Licking

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a wacky, whirlwind trip to the Brit Awards. Or, as they like to call it, Wednesday.

    At around 2 p.m. London time — or  6 a.m. Los Angeles time —Kim touched down at Heathrow Airport. That's love for you — flying all night to see your man perform his new song. Kanye was a last-minute fill-in for Rihanna after she failed to show up for rehearsals, per the U.K.'sDaily Mail.

    But her cross-continental trip did not keep Kim from a little self-promotion. She postedthis tweet with a corresponding Instagram post:


    Kanye, however, was not half as delighted.

    Perhaps that fast food didn't sit so well. Maybe try a kale shake next time?

    ...Even though she failed before utlimately snapping that photo.

  • Elizabeth Taylor's $8 Million Diamond Drama

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    The estate of Elizabeth Taylor is in a dispute with Christie's auction house over the actress's heart-shaped "Taj Mahal" diamond, which is set inside a ruby border of a pendant given to Taylor by then-husband Richard Burton in 1972 for her 40th birthday.

    In 2011, the New York auction house sold the 17th century piece of jewelry for $8.8 million to an anonymous buyer following Taylor's death. The original owner of the diamond was believed to be Shah Jahan, from the Mughal Empire, who built the Taj in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

    The Los Angeles Times reports the buyer demanded the sale be canceled months later based on his or her belief that the stone was not from the Mughal period.

    Per the lawsuit filed by trustees of Taylor's estate, Christie's canceled the sale even though the auction house never guaranteed the age of the diamond, only describing it as being of Indian origin.

    An attorney representing the estate of Elizabeth Taylor declined to comment.

  • Ivanka Trump Opens Up About Converting to Judaism

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 20 hrs ago

    People were surprised in 2009 when Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism for her fiancé, businessman and New York Observer owner Jared Kushner. They tied the knotlater that year, but until now, the powerful businesswoman and designer hadn't divulged much about her choice to convert or her life as a Jewish wife and mother.

    And it makes sense why. After all, religion isn't exactly prime for small talk — you don't just bring it up in an elevator after you comment on the hazy weather or during an interview about The Apprentice . However, in a new profile in Vogue, she opened up about the matter, but not without commenting on just how personal the topic is.
