A range of pop stars including Jay Z, Beyonce, Kanye West and Rihanna are suing a Paris-based clothes retailer and manufacturer for “brazenly” selling merchandise such as hats, T-shirts and mobile phone cases bearing their likenesses without their permission.

According to Reuters, the retailer’s actions “have caused and are causing immediate irreparable harm” to the plaintiffs.

Oh no! Looks like we'll have to wait another 12 months to find out what exactly Kanye's been working on all this time.
During a new interview about his recent Yeezy Season 2 fashion collection, Kanye West has dropped a little update about his new album Swish – and it doesn’t make good reading for fans.
The rapper admitted that, although he debuted a new song, ‘Fade’, from his seventh album at New York Fashion Week, the record itself may still be about a year from completion. “That song I played has been a year and a half in the making and it may be still a year from being complete,” he told Vanity Fair. “But it was to let people get a glimpse at the painting.”
Pressed a little more about the subject, the 38 year old said: “I’m not worried about the years. I’m worried about the life and the body of work that I can put out while I’m breathing.”

Kanye West, the rapper turned designer turned presidential hopeful, appears to have accepted criticism comes with his high-profile role. As such, he isn’t remotely interested in what his haters have to say about his recently premiered Yeezy season 2 collection.
Kanye West “doesn’t care” about the criticism his Yeezy season two fashion line faces. The second season of West’s designs premiered at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday (16th September) and it certainly provoked mixed reactions on social media. According to a source, West isn’t upset by those who only had negative things to say about his designs.

Chelsea Clinton is all for Kanye West running for President but she’s not certain if she’d vote for him – at least not until she sees his competition.
Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Democrat nominee hopeful Hillary Clinton, revealed she thinks Kanye West’s decision to run for President in 2020 is “awesome”.

The follow-up to 'Yeezus' has been over two years in the making, and one fan decided to ask President Obama to use his executive powers to force Kanye to release it.
Barack Obama will not be using his presidential powers to order Kanye West to release his long-awaited new album – despite a petition lobbying the White House to do so achieving over 100,000 signatures, according to Billboard.
Kanye hasn’t released a single in over five months, since he dropped a taster for his upcoming seventh album Swish called ‘All Day’ back on March 2nd, and the wait proved to be too much for one fan who started a petition on the White House’s ‘We The People’ website on Wednesday (August 12th) which quickly gained the requisite amount of signatures within a day to force the President to respond to it.

The rapper shares some tips on how his former family member can get his life back
In case anyone was left unaware, Kanye West has got a pretty good deal going for himself. Husband to a always well-dressed woman, father to an equally always well-dressed (and very cute) daughter with a pretty impressive music career and a sense of style all of his own - he’s got a good life.

Noel was surprised by how much he enjoyed the first half an hour of Kanye's Glastonbury set.
One of the most forthright men in the music industry gave his opinion on another in a new interview – and the result was rather surprising. Despite not being a hip-hop aficionado, Noel Gallagher has given his reaction to Kanye West’s much-discussed Glastonbury headline set, describing his performance as “f***ing amazing” – for about half an hour.
The former Oasis songwriter memorably looked a bit silly back in 2008 when he dismissed Jay-Z’s booking – the first ever hip-hop headliner at Glastonbury – only for the rapper to put in a blinding performance. Now, while Kanye has proved rather more divisive, Gallagher admits that he was initially impressed, though he eventually lost interest through not being a fan of the genre.

The unexpected interloper on Kanye's Glastonbury stage has taken to social media to explain his actions - he did it for Taylor Swift!
The stage invader who interrupted Kanye West’s headline set at Glastonbury at the weekend has finally broken his silence. As you probably already know, the perpetrator was English comedian Simon Brodkin, masquerading as his on-stage persona Lee Nelson.
Brodkin, who has wrote and performed in the comedy series ‘Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show for two seasons on BBC Three from 2010 to 2011, took to Twitter to post a picture of himself wearing a self-made ‘Lee-zus’ T-shirt and holding a fake microphone, standing next to a slightly perturbed Kanye during ‘Black Skinhead’.
This all went on for fewer than 10 seconds, before Brodkin was quickly intercepted by a security guard and dragged from the stage. While Kanye took it in his stride, he was distracted enough to quickly re-start the song before moving on.

One audience member’s cry for attention during Kanye’s Glasto performance has been condemned by fans as misogynistic and disgusting.
A Glastonbury audience member has been criticised online for flying a flag showing a still from Kim Kardashian’s sex tape during Kanye West’s headlining set. Kardashian, who is four months pregnant, attended her husband’s Pyramid Stage set at the British festival on Saturday night and later called it the ‘craziest show ever’ on twitter.

Unsurprisingly Kanye West's headline set at Glastonbury last night has divided internet opinion.
Last night US rapper Kanye West headlined Glastonbury, Britain’s most iconic music festival, in a decision which was controversial even by standards set in recent years (remember all those Metallica nay sayers?). But now that it’s all over, just what did the Glastonbury audience make of Yezzus on the Pyramid stage?

With a stage set which featured nothing more than a ceiling made up of a few hundred lightbulbs, Kanye West took on Glastonbury solo, opening up with the very appropriate ‘Stronger’. But it wasn’t long until some drama went down, as midway through the third song Kanye fell victim to a stage invader, later identified as comedian Lee Nelson.
Kanye's entourage is so massive that a special viewing platform has been built to accommodate them.
With a matter of hours to go before he takes to the stage for his controversial Glastonbury headline show on Saturday night, it seems as if Kanye West is already making his presence felt. He’s bringing such a large entourage to the festival that other bands’ guestlists have had to be restricted.
British indie stars The Maccabees stated to BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat that they “were told we only had one guest each this time,” according to the band’s guitarist Felix White. “I've not got that many other friends who want to come, but I'm just making a point!”

The study found there had been three music revolutions since the 1950s.
A study by the University of London and Imperial College has concluded that the emergence of hip hop has had the biggest impact on the charts of any genre since the 1950s. The study also found that the importance of The Beatles may have been overstated, suggesting that the fab five did not spark a musical revolution.
The Beatles may not have been that revolutionary
The study found there were three musical revolutions on the charts, the first being in 1964 with the rise of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles. The second was in the mid 80s with the use of synthesisers and drum machines, while the third came in 1991 when rap and hip-hop infiltrated the mainstream charts.

Less than a month after its star-studded New York re-launch, the subscription-only streaming service Tidal is showing early signs that it’s struggling.

The ‘Yeezus’ rapper was pranked by the comedienne on the red carpet, but he didn't even seem phased by the stunt.
Kanye West had quite the evening on Tuesday when he attended the annual TIME 100 gala, where he was honoured as one of the most influential people in the world. Kanye’s night began when he appeared on the red carpet with wife Kim Kardashian and was ‘pranked’ by comedienne Amy Schumer in front of the world's press.
West is one of the cover stars of Time magazine’s 'most influential' issue.
Schumer threw herself at the feet of the power couple, but the stunt garnered pretty much no reaction from Kim and Kanye. Yes Kimye didn't even bat an eyelid at the sight of a grown woman falling in front of them and instead just continued on down the red carpet business as usual.
The rap superstar has denied that he's a part of the 'Illuminati'. But then he would say that, wouldn't he?
As one of the most successful and admired music makers in the world, and with business concerns extending into film and fashion, Kanye West has long been believed to be involved with a shadowy secret society referred to as the ‘Illuminati’.
In a new self-penned article for Paper Magazine, he’s laughed off such suggestions. Then again, if you were in a secret society and asked if you belonged to it, you’d say ‘no’… Anyway, let’s not go down that rabbit hole.
Back to Kanye: “If there was actually an Illuminati, it would be more like the energy companies. Not celebrities that gave their life to music and who are pinpointed as decoys for people who really run the world,” he wrote.

Kanye gave the Coachella crowd a treat on Saturday night when he performed with The Weeknd.

A limited edition set of 500 signed copies of Kim Kardashian’s upcoming selfie book have flown off the virtual shelf, selling out less than a minute after going on sale. Website Glit.com was offering the special pre-sale copies, just under a month before the book is released to the masses.

After the quick sell out Kim thanked her fans on Twitter writing, 'Thanks to everyone who got a copy of Selfish on Gilt! Crazy it sold out in one minute!'
Following their highly publicised visit to Armenia, Kimye took baby North to be baptized at an Armenian cathedral in the Israeli city of Jerusalem.
The Jerusalem Post reported that Kim and Kanye took 22 month old North to Saint James Cathedral in Jerusalem’s Old City quarter. This was later confirmed by a representative for the Kardashians.

Kanye West is really pushing this "people's champion" thing.
Kanye West – rapper, designer, cool human being – performed a surprise gig last night. Not that much of a shock, since Kanye is prone to this kind of stunt every once in a while. But this one wasn’t in a dimly lit NY venue or an obscure borough of London – instead, Ye pitched camp in the middle of a lake in the Armenian capital of Yerevan.
Unfortunately, the gig was shut down by the police.
Let’s backtrack a little here Unless you’re an avid Kanye follower, you might not be aware that Kanye is currently on a sightseeing trip in Armenia, along with wife Kim Kardashian and sister-in-law Khloe. When the sights get a little old, however, Kanye apparently decided to entertain himself in the best way he knows.

In an interview with the New York Times' T Magazine, Kanye also discussed his married life, fatherhood and his fashion projects.
Always a provider of good quotations, Kanye West has described his ego as a marble table in a new interview about his high-profile lifestyle.
In a conversation with the New York Times’ T Magazine, the often controversial rapper spoke about a number of incidents in the recent past that have involved him. His comments about Beck at February’s Grammy Awards had the whole media talking about Kanye ‘doing a Kanye’.
Alluding to this incident, he said “I'm not a celebrity, I'm an activist. The fact that when I see truth it's really hard for me to sit back and just allow it to happen in front of me on my clock makes me, a lot of times, a bad celebrity.”
