Did Taylor Swift Purposely Skip Kanye West's Fashion Show?
Taylor Swift failed to show up to Kanye West's Adidas collection launch during New York Fashion Week on Thursday after promising she would attend.

However, West was overheard telling Vogue magazine's Andre Leon Talley he was expecting the pop star to be his special guest. He reportedly told the fashion guru, "She was supposed to be here today, so I don't know wh...

Kanye West launched his debut collection for Adidas at New York Fashion Week on Thursday, where it looked more like a Broadway play rehearsal than a fashion show.

Models, including Yeezy's sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, walked the runway in tight bodysuits of fleshtone colors, with some wearing skull-caps and others just a piece or two of clothing from Kanye's line.

The front row of the audience featured a number of A-listers, including Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, Jay-Z & Beyonce, Diddy & Cassie, Rihanna and Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour, who sat ne...

Kanye West To Boycott The Grammys Until They 'Fix The Voting Sys
Kanye West refuses to go to the Grammy Awards next year unless organizers alter the voting process to allow the most commercially successful artists to win the top awards.

Shirley Manson Gives Kanye West A Verbal Thrashing Over His Gram
At last night's Grammys, Kanye West nearly pulled a second "Imma let you finish" when Beck won Best Album of the Year.

Beck, it turns out, was totally cool with it. Apparently, he thought Beyonce was a shoo-in to win too.

But Shirley Manson, lead singer of the band Garbage, has a bone to pick with Kanye.

She may not have had the Grammy platform to speak publicly like Kanye did (or a seat close enough to the stage that she could just leap up there and scream her feelings), but she's speaking out nonetheless.

Manson posted a scathing reply to Kanye on her Facebook wall, arguing that Kanye...

A certain ZZ Top hit pops into our heads every time we see Taylor Swift at an awards show -- because the girl's got some serious legs, and she definitely knows how to use them!

The singer dazzled in a gorgeous teal and blue Elie Saab open-front gown at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, drawing some comparisons to Elsa from Disney's "Frozen."

Sure, Kanye West has the whole "music" thing locked down pretty solid, but pop culture will forever know him as that guy who leaped onto the stage at the 2009 VMAs, grabbed the mic and told the world that Taylor Swift was cool and all, but Beyonce is way better.

And at last night's Grammys, he did the same damn thing.

After Prince announced that Beck had won Album of the Year, Kanye charged the stage, just as before- only at the last second, he turned to the cameras, gave a quick smile and a wave and retreated.

At the time, it seemed like an obvious joke, that Kanye was poking fun ...
