11/10/2015 10:51am EST
You Won't Believe What Kim Kardashian & Kanye West May Name Thei
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are preparing for the birth of their son next month, and many are wondering what the little one's name will be.

Fans went into a frenzy after they gave their daughter a directional moniker (North West), prompting some to speculate that their son would be named South.

Back in June during an interview with NPR, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star insisted the directional moniker is not on her or husband Kanye West's list.

"I think it's stupid. I don't like South West. North will always be better," she explained.

So what will his name be?

Playing The Blame Game: 15 Songs That Point The Finger
Sigh, doesn’t it always seem like we as a society are ready to blame something or somebody for something? If we feel bad when we wake up, we blame it on our boss for being, um, an inappropriate word (your choice of course). If we all can’t seem to “love again,” it’s that bleeping ex that ruined love. If we’re Democrats, we blame Republicans or visa versa. Basically, there’s always blame to be shared.

This list features a jam-packed 15 songs that blame something or someone for certain circumstances. If for some reason you don’t invest your time into these songs, well YOU’RE TO B! Don’t be ...

Great Albums The Did Not Win Album Of The Year

Best Albums Since 2000 That Didn’t Win Album Of The Year
Who doesn’t want their achievements honored with an award? Winning an award whether you’re an actor, author, musician, or otherwise is considered an honor – high praise and recognition for the respective art. For a musician, nothing is more prestigious than winning a Grammy, with the most coveted Grammy being for album of the year. Just to be nominated is an honor, but to win the award is much sweeter.

Unfortunately, only a select few have won the Grammy for album of the year – it’s more of a rarity than a surefire thing. Arguably, the 00s and 10s have delivered some oddball choices when i...

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West's Baby Is Due On Christmas, Just L
If you thought Kanye West had a god complex before, just wait until the holidays get here.

TMZ has the report that Kim Kardashian's due date for her second child with the Future President of the United States is December 25, 2015. Sources close to the couple spilled the beans that doctors did some math based on the date of conception and decided that Baby Yeezus would be showing up alongside Santa Claus and the Son of God. Because Kanye's ego wasn't big enough to begin with.

To be fair, due dates are just an estimate, so there's no guarantee that the baby will cooperate with the plan.

The Weeknd Steps Up His Game On 'Beauty Behind the Madness'
Talk about a dude with hella hype behind him in 2015! Many musicians would kill to be in the position that Canadian R&B singer Abel Tesfaye – better known as The Weeknd – finds himself in.
