When Kanye West accepted the visionary award at the 2015 BET Honors, he said, “For the first time in my life, I understand what it’s like to feel humbled.” The rapper went on to speak for nine minutes, addressing everything from racism to his relationship with Kim Kardashian.
After mentioning a stereotype about black men dating white women when they find success, he joked, “My wife has dated broke black dudes, so it ain’t got nothing to do with the money.” That wasn’t the only nod he gave to Kim. He also told an emotional story about her father, Robert Kardashian, who found a racial slur written on his car when he was on O.J. Simpson’s defense team. Watch the full speech below to see what Kanye had to say about racism, freedom, and more.
Insiders claim Kanye West wanted Jay Z to be the Best Man in his wedding to Kim Kardashian but Jay turned him down flat.
According to The Daily Star,
A pal of the Kardashians told us: “Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man.”
“Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony.”
We’re told: “The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé.”
“She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
Our source continued: “Bosses at E! are desperate to get the nuptials on air, and will pay millions to make it happen.”
Blue Ivy ain’t got no time for that!
For her third trip down the aisle (yes….third), Kim Kardashian will be a traditional June bride when she marries Kanye West in France. The entire “fairytale” event WILL be filmed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a multi-million dollar affair where most of the costs will be covered by the producers behind their hit E! series.
Reports Radar Online via Eben Gregory:
“Kim has always wanted to be a June bride and she is finally going to get her wish,” a source close to the couple revealed to Radar.
“Kim and Kanye have narrowed down the wedding location, which is being kept a secret at this point. It will be on the outskirts of Paris.”
Added the insider, “Kim persuaded Kanye to let the cameras roll because E! will pick up most of the cost of the wedding and it’s a lot easier for a network to deal with logistics of a foreign wedding than if it were just the two of them planning it.”
The lovebirds won’t have to worry about security, intrusive photographers or guests with cell phones, explained the source, because the producers will handle the logistics.
“Even though Kim’s marriage to Kris (Humphries) was a disaster, she was very happy with how the wedding and reception turned out,” said the insider.
“It was flawless. Both Kim and Kanye have very high expectations for their wedding. It will be an over-the-top affair and there will be pre-wedding festivities leading up to the big day for their guests. It’ll be like a festival!”
It won’t be at the Palace of Versailles, which denied Kimye’s request to have their wedding at Marie Antoinette’s former digs.
Said our source: “Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were both hoping to persuade officials during their visit there… ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm no.
“The couple is looking for something grand, but something that can offer privacy and security.”

Kanye West attacks an 18-year-old guy inside the waiting room of a chiropractor’s office … after the guy allegedly called Kanye the N-word.
Kim was at a Beverly Hills medical building when she was swarmed by photogs. We’re told the guy allegedly tried to help Kim get in the building, as he started screaming, “F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs”” — referring to the paparazzi. Kim then told him it was not appropriate to use the N-word. We’re told he then screamed at her, “F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut.”
Apparently that got Kim hot as fish grease … she watched the guy walk into an office. As they were walking we’re told the guy continued berating Kim. She dialed Kanye on his cell, and when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said, “F**k you N****r.” Kanye — who had just arrived at the building — then met up with Kim.
Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there. Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, “We have it all on tape.”
Sources say the massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men. Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Kanye is now officially a suspect in a battery investigation and they want to interview him. We’re also told the matter will be referred to the L.A. County D.A. for possible prosecution.
We ain’t mad at Kanye but KK does love the brothas…..
