Kanye released his new song "Theraflu" to much fanfare over the innanet. I, on the other hand, listened to it once, and then downloaded it. AKA it has yet to captivate me. It has, on the other hand, been the focus of many a blog post in my G Reader. And the whole industry wanna fuck yo’ old chick Only nigga I got respect for is Wiz Kanye talking about his respect for Wiz, for wifing Amber Rose. (Bruh, we all know that's fake). And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim ‘Round the same time she had fell in love wit’ him Well, that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thing Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop ‘im from the team Kanye professes his love for one of the most useless human beings who happens to hoard the media spotlight. No, not Tila Tequila, but Kim Kardashian. Does anyone believe that's real, too? (*cough cough cough cough cough*) Get the Theraflu Surprisingly enough, Theraflu isn't very pleased at all with Kanye's use of their brand. Sidebar: I keep typing "Therafly," and if Kanye is going to use a lame pun like "Swagu" instead of "Ragu," I'm surprised he didn't use "Therafly." Anyway, Theraflu told TMZ that, "We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner." Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor Nothing warms my heart like anyone blatantly pissing off PETA. To me, all is forgiven with this lone line. PETA reached out to XXL Magazine with this statement that made me snicker even more: What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with ...

Oh, Rihanna. She's really wearing some Emilio Pucci pajamas on a red carpet for her Battleship movie premiere. Her face and hair look really pretty, but when you look down, homegirl kind of looks like a mess. I don't know why she wants to cover up her body like that (let me tell you, I don't suffer at the gym to hide in baggy clothes). One of the ladies at work wears sweats every day, and my parents/bosses would never let me fly with that shit. I always ask if I can, mostly to see their reactions, but ultimately, I hold myself to higher standards and can't imagine going out in public wearing sweats or pajamas like this. Putting on actual pants instead of sweats or pajamas really isn't that difficult when it comes down to it (that's what I tell myself in the face of temptation, anyhow). MTV via SR
And that "In Paris" song is still haunting me. But hey, at least he's in Paris now? Yeezy debuted his DW Kanye West line in Paris last week, with people like Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Cassie, Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, Guiseppe Zanotti, Ricardo Tisci, Azzedine Alaia and one of my least favorite "celebrities" ever, Kim Kardashian in attendance. The main things I noticed were fur and leather, and the leather pants that the models are wearing seem to resemble those that he wore under his muumuu shirt and kilt on the Watch The Throne Tour when he looked like a bag lady. What was that campaign in Zoolander? Derelict? I know y'all know what I'm talking about. So, despite the fact that the last model looks like she's wearing the hind quarters of my orange cat Dante (seriously, slightly uncomfortable I'm feeling) on the whole, I'm in favor of fur. Here's the collaboration shoe that Kanye made with Giuseppe Zanotti that can be yours for a mere $5,800. Don't buy me these and force me to wear them...so I know it's real.

Pharrell debuted some green hair at the Paris Fashion Week last week... Fortunately, he's so beautiful he can get away with almost anything, although I have to admit, I am not feeling the green hair. A while back, he revealed he dyed his hair green in honor of his new fashion line with McNairy. I also recently read that he has a three year old son named Rocket. For someone who alleges that they love Pharrell as much as they do, I'm not doing a very good job at internet stalking him because I didn't know he had a luxury fashion line with McNairy, or a son, named Rocket, for that matter.

Well, no shit, Sherlock, who would have guessed that one? Just...look at him in his sweaters and grandpa glasses...and that guy's face to the left. You really think someone who doesn't have the attitude of a diva could pull that off? AllHipHop.com broke the news that Drake's diva ways cost him the cover of Vibe, and by extension, his lack of fashion sense, if he's getting all heated about not being able to wear his black leather bomber jacket for a spring spread. Okay, Aubrey. VIBE contributor Lola Ogunnaike revealed: “He was slated to appear on the cover of VIBE magazine to accompany this story . But he fouled that up when he arrived more than eight hours late to the shoot and refused to wear any of the wardrobe provided for him.” “He brought his own clothes, which was mostly Hemès and leather bomber jackets,” revealed a source at the shoot. “But it was a shoot about spring fashion. He was going on and on about wearing his leather bomber, and wasn’t letting it go. He said the stylist was too aggressive, that he wasn’t a model and he wasn’t feeling the vibe. He hopped in his SUV and left.” People having super inflated egos is extremely unattractive to me. Get the fuck over yourself. Is Drake more important than me? Well, it depends who you ask, most likely, because I'd say that I'm pretty damn important in my own little world. But the point I'm trying to make is that I'm not gonna act like a diva because I blog on occasion. Just, like, don't burn bridges, no matter who you are. AllHipHop
Gucci Mane dressed up real nice for his Jacksonville crowd. I could clown on him all day long, but the fact of the matter is that I would totally go to a concert of his if the opportunity presented itself to me, i.e. he came to Seattle. Spotted at DGB
B.o.B is on his commander steez--seriously, what's with that army hat trend?--and brings out the big guns Young Jeezy and T.I. for the remix of "Strange Clouds." I really, really like this song. T.I sounds great, Jeezy sounds great, Bobby Ray sounds great. I just love it. Now, if only Bobby Ray's next album Strange Clouds could be along the lines of this song. Although I was partial to the pretty strange clouds in the original video with Weezy (and Weezy looking like a huge weirdo), I'm not complaining. I just really like this song. That's not very eloquent of me, but that's the truth.
Surprisingly, I don't think that look he donned for the Larry King show was featured on the list, but that goofy bowtie is now the epitome of Chris Breezy in my mind. From GQ.com, because it's zing, after zing, after zing: For someone who seems to have so much disposable income - he boasts on one track about spending "15 grand on a phone" and charged over $500 for meet-and-greets on his last tour - Brown seems utterly adverse to investing in tailoring, combining the worst excesses of XXL sizing with a penchant for deeply unflattering costumes. They have a point. I could argue and say that Lil Wayne is the worst dressed male on the planet, since he's been wearing snowboard boots, but I think he purposely tries to dress like a weirdo (and succeeds), whereas Chris Breezy is trying to look cool. You can see GQ's slideshow of 25 photos that more than demonstrates why he's the worst dressed in the world. And get some laughs.
Nacho Picasso drops the first video from Lord Of The Fly for "Naked Lunch," the song of the same name as William S. Burroughs' drugged out, controversial novel Naked Lunch (thanks, Evan, for pointing that out). I feel like I'm the one drugged out and confused after watching "Naked Lunch," although it's pretty wavy (another word I'm working to incorporate into my vocab because I overuse "trill"). I think I like the Hawaiian shirt and bucket hat scene the most, primarily for that wardrobe. Download Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso's Lord of the Fly from Nacho's bandcamp. The album is way better than the novel that inspired that wordplay. I know you thought of that, too, my dear reader, when you first read it. Or maybe I'm just a weirdo who reads books.
Since I love trap music and all, how sick would that be to have "Trapstar" emblazoned boldly across my chest? Perfecto. I was first alerted to London streetwear brand Trapstar via Upscale Hype, when they posted about Chris Brown wearing a leopard hoodie by them that has since sold out. As seen above, Rihanna was also photographed wearing the brand during her big bird hairstyle phase a couple years ago. I need these clothes ASAP Rocky...and speaking of needing these ASAP Rocky, there's ASAP Rocky wearing a hat. Visit their website at I am a trapstar DOT com. Again, amazing, I love the name. Except, for me, it should be more like iwishiwasatrapstar.com, but who cares about being specific, anyway? At this time, though, it doesn't appear that Trapstar is sold outside of London. Fingers crossed that I can get my fingers on some. Since I accidentally figured out how to use the gallery function on my template (swag....on a million), below are some images of their clothes.
