Are Kim and Kanye okay? Sources told The Sun that they’ve been at each other’s throats during isolation. One said Kim is used to being on the go all the time, but on top of that, she doesn’t think Kanye is pulling his weight with the kids. One source said, “They’ve been staying at opposite ends of the house to keep things civil.” Just a week earlier, Us Weekly published pretty much the same thing, saying Kim and Kanye have been arguing a lot during quarantine and that Kanye has been getting on her nerves. Their source said she’s frustrated because Kanye doesn’t ask how he can help with the kids.
Tekashi 6ix9ine dropped his first video since being released from jail. During quarantine, he managed to film “GOOBA,” which has racked up close to 100M views in 2 days. He also did a live stream on Instagram that had over 2M watching, and during that time, he tried to explain why he snitched on members of his own gang to get his prison time reduced. He said members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods weren’t loyal to him, so why should he be loyal to them? Tekashi said, “Where was the loyalty when you were sleeping with my baby mother? Where was the loyalty when you were caught on wiretap trying to kill me? Where was the loyalty when you tried to kidnap my mother? Where was the loyalty when you stole millions of dollars?” Tekashi said his own gang kidnapped him and beat him and even recorded it on video. He said, “I’m supposed to be loyal to THAT?” But a lot of rappers, including Meek Mill, Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent, say they refuse to work with a snitch.
After being raked over the coals by a fellow foodie, Chrissy Teigen has protected her tweets. If you already follow Chrissy on Twitter, you’ll still be able to see them, but the rest of us are out of luck. So what happened?? In an interview with The New Consumer, food writer Alison Roman criticized Chrissy for being a sellout. Alison said, “She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her. That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that.” But Alison’s criticism didn’t stop with Chrissy. She also blasted decluttering guru Marie Kondo for selling a line of products when her whole bit is to get rid of stuff, not to buy more stuff. Chrissy said the comments left her feeling “so bummed out” and tweeted, “I know the actual tears I put into the work I do and it’s really hard to see someone try to completely invalidate it. Someone I really liked. There are many days I cry very hard because Cravings, the site, is our baby we love to pump content onto. We do this work ourselves, and there is NO monetary gain yet. It is just work work work and the reward is you liking it. So to be called a sellout….hooooo it hurts. This ‘farm’ you think of doesn’t exist. I am the farm. I am the cows the horses the pigs.” Chrissy also suggested that it was probably a good idea that she and Alison unfollow each other.
