Kanye West

Over the weekend, Kanye West was in Kazakhstan to perform for President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the president’s grandson’s wedding in Almaty (at the Hotel Royal Tulip, an excellent hotel name). According to TMZ, Yeezus got paid $3 million for the performance. Pres. Nazarbayev is reportedly “worth billions” (mostly from plundered oil reserves, I would assume). The problem? Pres. Nazarbayev is on the Human Rights Watch’s list of dictators who mistreat, abuse, detain and kill their own people.

I wouldn’t think a grown man would want people to know that he built a Batcave at his house, but director Kevin Smith didn’t care about that and put Ben Affleck on blast, revealing that he’s done just that.

Thank you Mark Wahlberg! Seriously, someone needs to slap some sense into this kid. I’m so sick of Justin Bieber’s recent immature antics.

The 19-year-old singer has been getting into some trouble this summer with photographers and police. Most recently, the Biebs is facing assault charges for spitting on a DJ in a night club in Columbus, Ohio.

Marky Mark told the UK Sun on Tuesday, “Don’t be so naughty, yeah? Be a nice boy, pull your [pants] up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed, you little bastard.’

He is just an arrogant, entitled little brat who needs to clean up his act or he will no doubt be on the same road as Lindsay Lohan or Amanda Bynes. It’s also upsetting because Bieber used to be such a nice role model that his fan could look up to.

Sydney Leathers had a profile on SeekingArrangement, billed as the #1 sugar daddy dating site.
