Kanye West gives bizarre performance on "SNL" and Lil' Kim claps back at skin lighting claims
Kanye West made a much publicized appearance on "SNL" last night complete with a bevy of guests including Future, Young Thug, Chance the Rapper, Kelly Price, The-Dream, and Future who all happen to be on his new album, "The Life of Pablo". "TLOP" is now available exclusively on TIDAL and will be available elsewhere a week from now. And in the midst of Kanye's new album release are the stories about him dissing Taylor Swift which Kanye says was her idea and but Taylor's camp is dismissing the claim. Then there's a dig at Ray J where Kanye proclaims himself as "rich" and even informed Brandy that he mentioned Ray J on the new album. All this talk about the album, Kanye performed two songs, "Ultra High Beams" and "Highlights" if I'm not mistaken. In other music news, Lil' Kim is clapping back after years of claims she's lightened her skin. On social media, the famed rapper addressed that she only lightens her pictures so they makeup can pop. She included a video with her ghostwriter Maino shortly before attending Kanye's Yeezy fashion show and a picture before and after the lightning. I just don't understand what made Kim FINALLY speak out now because people have been talking about her everchanging looks for years. I guess she finally got tired of all the talking. Meanwhile Kim's new single, "Mine" featuring Kevin Gates is available on February 19 via her IRS record label. You can hear a snippet of the Jamaican flavored song on Amazon.com. Well enjoy your week people. I'll try not to stay away too long but I can't make any promises! Thanks for reading!
