Kanye West's latest talk-generating quote is about his wife Kim Kardashian's nude selfie habit. He's interviewed in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar.
"I love her nude selfies. Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it's almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting." He then goes on to make the Adele reference. "I think it's important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing."
He's right in some ways. If Adele didn't sing and Kim stopped posing nude they'd both be unemployed.
Over four years, online ticket outfit Vivid Seats tried to determine which music fans travel the farthest to see their favorite artist. Gas up the Prius, here they are with the median distance traveled:
Phish, 152 miles
Garth Brooks, 84 miles
One Direction, 65 miles
Adele, 63 miles
Justin Bieber, 52 miles
Beyonce, 46 miles
Taylor Swift, 43 miles
Coldplay, 41 miles
Luke Bryan, 40 miles
Guns N' Roses, 38 miles
I'm thinking Garth is so high due to his Vegas show?
In Seattle this week Adele noticed a look-a-like in the audience and invited them on stage. It was a local drag artist named Kristie Champagne and it looked like a pretty cool moment for both of them! Watch:
Sarah Silverman got laughs when she told Bernie or Bust supporters that they were "being ridiculous" at the Democratic National Convention, but there was one joke that never made it on stage.
She tells the New York Times, "At the very beginning, when Al said, 'I'm Al Franken, and this past year I've been hashtag-I'm With Her' … I was going to say, 'And I'm Sarah Silverman, and this past year I've been with the possibly agnostic Jew' but they were like, no. And they are right but I get so indignant. At least I'm aware, and awareness brings change, so maybe I'll be less obnoxious."
Remember when everyone was doing the "Ice Bucket Challenge" in 2014? It was considered a breakthrough in fundraising, and now the money raised has lead to a breakthrough in the fight against ALS.
One million dollars raised from the challenge was given to Project MinE. The U.S. division of the project was able to use the money to identify a gene, NEK1, that is linked to ALS. That could help provide clues to possibly treat the disease! That's pretty freakin' awesome. And now I feel bad for getting sick of seeing it on social media after a while.
