Kanye West Wants Google’s Eric Schmidt To Invest In His Creative Agency

It was not boring. 11. But the main thing that makes the Yeezus show totally riveting? Kanye himself. He sings and raps and stalks the stage with so much intensity it’s slightly unnerving.

Blaine, like the truly creeptastic showman that he is, thoroughly skeeved out a bunch of famous people like Will Smith and Woody Harrelson by jamming an ice pick through his hand and then asking said famous people to pull it out again. While the majority of the celebs reacted in cringing, hand-flapping horror to the stunt see Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul ‘Ye stayed cool, smiling and chuckling as he pulled the sharp implement from the musician’s hand. Perhaps he just went to his “happy place” which we’re guessing is some iteration of the tranquil scenes in his “Bound 2” video ? This isn’t the first time Blaine has enlisted a musician to inflict physical pain on his person; in 2012, the magician executed a stunt called “Electrified” in which he spent three days and three nights being electrocuted by the likes of Andrew W.K. , who doled out shocks via a mini keyboard hooked up to Tesla coils.

Kanye West takes break from sold-out Yeezus tour to play hands-on dad to baby North on date night with fiancee Kim Kardashian

Hes recently been ingratiating himself to the tech world , going so far as to invite Silicon Valley luminaries like Ben Horowitz and Mark Pincus to witness to his proposal to Kim Kardashian. At last nights Madison Square Garden stop on the Yeezus tour, Kanye interrupted his set to make a special plea to one of the most prominent technologists of all: after telling the audience that Google chairman Eric Schmidt was in the house, he asked approximately a dozen times Do yall want Eric Schmidt to invest in DONDA? The answer was a resounding yes. In recent interviews, Kanye has repeatedly and earnestly asked for the support of major, established institutions to help him execute his grand vision for DONDA, which he has said he intends to turn into a trillion-dollar company. Hopefully Schmidt was listening.

Guess who won? West took a shot at online shoe retailer Zappos during a Tuesday podcast with Bret Easton Ellis that touched on topics ranging from film to fashion, E! News reported. During the chat, West slammed Zappos’ chief exec, Tony Hsieh. “I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on,” West said. “Meanwhile, he sells all this [expletive] product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling [expletive] product.” Zappos, long known for its humorous and successful approach to social media, on Thursday tweeted about a new product, tailored to West’s rather specific expectations.

Kanye West’s Most Egotistical Comparisons Ever

No, the conversation is about West and that flag. The rapper thrust himself into the spotlight, yet again, with news that several pieces of merchandise from his Yeezus tour are emblazoned with the controversial Southern Cross. At his tour store in Los Angeles, a replica of the flag is affixed to the wall with red tape and adorned with the words, “I ain’t coming down.” Twitter exploded after word got out, and while West saw some support, including a fellow who called him a “pro-black genius,” others called him a disgrace.

Is Kanye West losing his cool appeal? And is Kim Kardashian to blame?

West has made headlines frequently lately, more due to his outlandish remarks than his trailblazing talent. Weve heard the rapper compare himself to everyone from Jesus, Michael Jordan and Steve Jobs to Nelson Mandela, Michelangelo and Michael Jackson and amid all that talk, he has also managed to offend much of the Jewish population. The Anti-Defamation League is accusing West of anti-Semitism over comments he made to a Chicago radio station last month, urging him to take responsibility for saying that Obama can’t execute moves because “he aint got those connections. Black people dont have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Adding insult to injury, a new study released in November suggests that Wests connection to the Kardashian family may also be the reason for his popularity decline. Q Scores, a website marketers use to measure recognition, reported that Wests popularity has dipped a whopping 66 percent since he first started dating his reality star fiancee in April 2011, and that he now ranks far below the average hip hop artist and male celebrity.

My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. However, crisis communications expert Glenn Selig is just one of many disturbed by the slim donation percentage and told FOX411 that typically most bidders assume the majority goes to the stated cause. When you say something is for the charity, the assumption is much more than 10 percent goes to charity. And when the charity angle is leveraged to boost bidding or to drum up news coverage, when only 10 percent goes to charity people likely will be taken, he said. It is wrong to mislead the public. Sources tell Fox411 that Kardashian does make a profit from the auction which ended on Sunday but contrary to multiple reports, it isnt 90 percent. EBay takes roughly 9 percent for eBay fees on fashion items, as well as 2.9 percent for domestic and 3.9 percent for international payments received. The auction promoters also take an undisclosed cut from the final sales. But across the Twitterverse, many are up in arms that the prominent personality and fiancee of Kanye West, who is worth an estimated $40 million, isnt shelling out a little more.

Kim Kardashian criticized for donating just 10 percent of ‘charity auction’ to typhoon victims

REX FEATURES In our eyes Kim Kardashian is perfect so it’s difficult to believe she wouldn’t get along with another human being. But things seemed a little tense between the Kueen of reality television and actress Lindsay Lohan when they sat as far apart as they possibly could in the VIP section of a Kanye West concert last month. Kim once worked as the Mean Girls star’s personal stylist and shopper before she rose to mega-fame on Keeping Up With the Kardashians but the pair hardly seemed to acknowledge each other during Kanye’s gig at the Barclay’s Center in New York. However, it appears the pair now want the world to know they are getting along just fine – they posed for a picture together at the Art Basel launch in Miami on Wednesday. Anyone else feel a bit sorry for Lindsay? Splash News And while we’d like to think this means any cracks in their brilliant friendship have been mended, we can’t help but thing the girls look rather tense in the snap.
