With news like this, I realize Kanye West isn’t all ego and fashion.
West opened up about the loss of his mother Donda West in a new interview with Q magazine, and admits that he holds himself accountable for her death.
When Q asked what in his life he’s sacrificed for his massive level of success, the Grammy winner, 38, said simply, “My mom.” Which is really heavy. And very sad. Us Weekly reports:
An English professor, Donda died at the age of 58 after suffering complications from elective surgery. West’s mother passed away in November 2007 after being admitted to a hospital in Marina del Rey, Calif. Her health began to deteriorate following a plastic surgery procedure in California, which led to controversy surrounding the doctor who performed the surgery.
“If I had never moved to L.A. she’d be alive,” West continued of his beloved mother, who inspired his creative business DONDA. “I don’t want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.”
Aw, poor Kanye. I can’t even imagine the pain and frustration of losing a parent, and how bad he must’ve felt about the circumstances surrounding losing his mother. But you can tell how important family is to Kanye, because North really does seem like his biggest priority. While spending time abroad to work on his seventh solo studio album, tentatively titled SWISH, West said his daughter always takes precedent.
“While [Nori’s] here in Europe I have to have six hours a day with her because otherwise I’ll just work and she’ll get scheduled around meetings,” the “Only One” performer explained. “Instead, the meetings get scheduled around her.”
So sweet. I know your mom’s gone, Kanye, but I’m sure she was and is so proud of you!

Celebrities they’re just like us, but with like, a lot of money and probably lots of cosmetic surgery. Right, Iggy Azalea?
On Wednesday, the rapper talked about her struggles with body confidence via twitter, and while the message is positive, it does feel a little hypocritical.
“Some days I just think I want to crawl in my cave and I don’t feel confident at all, and other days I feel great. I think it’s like that for all human beings, not just young women.”
Now check about the picture above (again). Yeah, it’s kinda hard to believe she’s not confident sometimes, when she’s modeling Bonds underwear.
“I think maybe feeling confident or 100 percent every day is something to aspire to, but I don’t know if it’s humanly possible for anybody.
I think it’s just having that honest moment with yourself and other people, and almost admitting and embracing that your flaws are the thing about you that you sometimes feel bad about but they can empower your own self.”
Really? Did she embrace her flaws when she got a boob/nose/chin job? Again, I love when celebs preach confidence, but not when they’re being super lame about it.
What do YOU think about Iggy’s message?

A piece of Farrah Abraham can be yours, if you’re interested in pathetic half-celebrity ploys for money.
The reality “star” just partnered with Celebrity Gene, a company that liquefies the DNA of celebrities (according to TMZ, the DNA is usually extracted from hair (and puts it in a vial you can wear around your neck). The jewelry vials go for $99, and AT THE VERY LEAST it’s MOSTLY for a good cause: 50% goes to the charity of the celeb’s choice. In Farrah’s case, if anyone buys her DNA necklace BS 50 percent will go to Operation Underground Railroad, which helps rescue kidnapped children from slavery.
Of course, Abraham’s also banking a 10% cut from sales according to TMZ, in addition to the roughly $30,000 she got upfront for the DNA sample.
Abraham joins the ranks of Michael Jackson, Princess Diana, Elvis and Al Capone, who also have DNA for sale via the site. So you know, if everyone else is sold out and you’re REALLY celeb obsessed to the point of really wanting to get one of these, I guess Farrah’s is avail.
Hers probably won’t sell out, I’m betting.

So much so that she gave him a signed Vanity Fair cover (and lots and lots of money).
Caitlyn Jenner SHOULD flaunt the handiwork of her plastic surgeons; after all, she looks amazing. The reality star posed with Dr. Harrison Lee, one of the docs who was crucial to her transformation, on instagram yesterday.
As Caitlyn said in the VF article, she underwent 10 hours of surgery in Beverly Hills to feminize her face so yeah, I’d say she owes Dr. Lee a little love. Dr. Lee looks happy to be posing with Caitlyn, proudly holding up the cover that says, “Great job. Thank you so much.”
I’m going to ignore the fact that Dr. Lee is wearing a douchey fedora and say that I second a job well done!
