The couple brought together an intimate gathering of family and friends and celebrated their new marriage and their baby on the way, aboard a 260-foot yacht on the Mediterranean Sea, near Sardinia’s uber-exclusive Costa Smeralda enclave* (think St.Tropez-swag on 100-thousand-trillion, lol).
Obviously because Swizz and AK aren’t Italian citizens, they got officially hitched in the Tri-State area before leaving for Europe. And at that small ceremony, the bride reportedly wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Tom Ford, and, of course, the footwear was all Louboutin.
Swizzy had two bachelor parties (hmm…hasn’t he partied up and sown his oats enough?…but, I digress).
Congrats to the happy couple!

Captain James T. Kirk scored an interview with the man who proved black people could be serial killers (adding the conspiracy theory that we’re closer to the end of days… #justsayin). William Shatner’s interview with Lee Boyd Malvo (the younger half of the DC sniper duo) turned up some new information. Malvo claims that he and the other sniper, John Muhammad, were supposed to have help. Malvo says “there were supposed to be three to four snipers with silenced weapons.” Taste The Brew for a sneak peek
Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have called off their wedding (for now)! But, they say it’s not because Levi’s ex-girlfriend Lanesia Garcia is pregnant. Garcia claims Levi is not the father of her child. Word is Bristol and Levi called off their short-lived engagement because of another ex-girlfriend of Levi’s. This dude got more exes than Texas. Johnston’s ex, Briana Plum, said some nasty things about Bristol in an interview. Us mag reports you can blame Facebook for the failed engagement. Bristol saw some photo on Facebook of Briana and Levi that made her say “let’s hold off on the engagement.”
It’s not clear how this will affect the reality show they were reportedly working on.
After weeks of speculation (and 9 years of “dating”), we told you last night that Clifford and Tameka finally made it official at a Miami courthouse. Of course, no celebrity pair can simply get married at the courthouse. Save that ish for the hood and the movies (*looking at you Carrie & Mr. Big*). So, Tip and his lady love are planning a 3 city wedding tour.
Us Weekly reports the Harris’ will remix their vows today in a small ceremony on a private island off the coast of Miami (Cuba?). Tiny will wear Valentino for that wedding. Then, they’ll jet off to Atlanta for a reception this afternoon, only to fly to Las Vegas for a reception tonight.
This is better than the James Brown funeral tour.
We polled some of our readers to find out just what wedding gifts they’d get the couple. Hop over to our Facebook page for the hilarious responses.
Congrats to T.I., Tiny and their kids (and the ring).
My fellow sisters in thickness rejoice! New York City’s Saks Fifth Avenue is increasing its plus-sized collection by bringing in a slew of new options from top-notch designers, including the likes of Akris, Giorgio Armani, Carolina Herrera (my fashion fairy godmother… in my head), Chanel, Escada, Donna Karan, St. John, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Max Mara, Valentino, Michael Kors, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Fendi and Roberto Cavalli. Whew! What a list. Some designers will offer up to a size 20. But, word is (per usual) you’ll only find one of each size in each item. Sigh! If the New York experiment goes well, other Saks stores will follow their lead.
And Madonna’s aiming for your back to school pesos. Her juniors fashion line, “Material Girl,” debuts next week at Macy’s. Madge’s 13 year old daughter Lourdes helped style the collection and Gossip Girl actress and budding gossip blog train wreck Taylor Momsen is the face of the clothing line.
Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Kanye West | Posted on 30-07-2010
Kanye West is done interrupting country stars, lighting Amber Rose’s cigarettes and swigging Henny on red carpets. So it must be time for him to do some album promo. Kanye and his ego made news all week: a stop at Facebook’s headquarters; an impromptu Twitter headquarters performance and he actually joinedTwitter this week (something he swore he didn’t need to do).
The PR machine oiled its parts just enough to drop this still image from Kanye’s soon-to-be released “Power” video where he’s wearing a ridiculously big and expensive Horus neckpiece.
The New York Times got a glimpse of the new video and dropped this recap of what you’ll see when “Power” comes out next week:
Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps, the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The sword of Damocles hangs precariously over Mr. West’s head, and behind him an unseen executioner is preparing to strike him with a blade.
Um, yeah. Ya boy is back…ego and all.

Diddy was not feeling the line of questioning he got during his interview with Nightline co-host Martin Bashir. During the interview, Bashir asked Diddy about the lavish, $400,000 Maybach he bestowed upon his 16 year old son Justin.
“There were times in the interview when I had to give him an ultimatum. The questions weren’t being handled the right way. In hindsight, when I saw him I shouldn’t had done the interview because I know the style of interview that he does . . . The whole thing about giving a Maybach to my son, that’s really like a racist question. You don’t ask White people what they buy their kids.”
I still think the car is an insane gift for a kid!
Laurence Fishburne’s daughter is set to make her acting debut but it’s proably not a good thing consider her flick will be in the nasty bin at the XXX store. 19-year-old Montana Fishburne said she got into the “film” business after watching Kim Kardashian Ray-J’s former tea bagger rise to fame. Guess she took the red pill? Source
