West recorded an appearance on "The Jonathan Ross Show" where he performed his track "Only One."

Despite his best efforts to get the rapper to speak to him, Ross could not get a word out of the usually chatty rapper. In order to get on his level, the talk show host lay down next to Yeezus to attempt to get an answer out of him.

Ross joked: "If you want to spoon, I don't mind. [My bum]'s not as big as Kim's,...

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.

The two have a history together -- West protested her "Best Female Video" win over his friend Beyonce at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, and he jumped on stage, interrupting her acceptance speech. The pair have since mended ways.

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...

Now that all is good between Kanye West and Taylor Swift after that MTV Video Music Awards incident in 2009, the two stars are planning a collaboration together.

The two artists were spotted backstage at the Grammys on Sunday smiling and laughing, and Kanye recently told Ryan Seacrest that he's eager to work with Taylor now that the incident when he stole the microphone from her at the VMAs while she was accepting the Best Female Video award to say that it should have gone to Beyonce for having one of the "best videos of all time" is water under the bridge.

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.

The rapper boycotted the show for six years because he didn't agree with the way awards were distributed. On Sunday, he made a reappearance, but it wasn't without controversy. When Beck won "Album Of The Year" instead of his friend Beyonce, West hopped on stage in protest. He then walked off before making a scene.

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."

Unfortunately pop music's ice queen wasn't able to add any hardware to her already seven-strong Grammy collection.

Why Did Kanye West REALLY Crash The Grammy Stage?
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 ...

Kanye West Refuses To Smile In Super Bowl Selfie
Does Kanye West hate football? Does he hate selfies? Does he hate it when two random dudes shove their faces next to his for an impromptu selfie?

It's got to be something. Because two Seahawks fans found themselves next to West during last night's Super Bowl, and jumped over to him for a quick pic.

And Kanye was not happy about it.

Seen above: the star rapper sits in silence. Arms crossed. Eyes blankly forward. Corners of mouth turned ever so slightly downward, as if to express a strong feeling of "goddamnit..."

The pic was first uploaded to Instagram with a cheeky caption: "Kanye loves...

Might Kim Kardashian be a little jealous of Amber Rose?

After Rose blew the doors off of Instagram (presuming that Instagram has doors), Kardashian posted a few racy Instagram photos of her own, in a similar (although far less revealing) string bikini.

But what Kardashian lacks in sheer near-nudity, she makes up for in theme: in the photos (one of which can be spotted above), Kardashian is rocking a fur bikini in a snowy landscape.

Or, a "furkini," as was captioned by Kardashian in one pic. Along with a credit to her husband, Kanye West, for snapping the pic (we can assume he was rockin...
