Kanye West Showcases A.P.C. Collection on ‘Le Grand Journal’

Kanye West

Between his visit to the Givenchy show and scouting wedding locations with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West stopped by French talk show “Le Grand Journal” during Paris Fashion Week. Accompanied by A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou, the rapper-turned-designer discussed collaborating on his second men’s capsule collection with the French brand.

“I just love creativity across the board, like architecture, art,” said Kanye. “I think I’m addicted to dreams. Clothing or stage design or an album, it’s all an art project.”

The show also aired footage of a very hands-on Kanye working on the autumn/winter collection, which includes denim, fur-lined army jackets, combat pants, and balaclavas.

Kanye’s first collaboration with A.P.C. sold out within hours of going on sale in July of last year.

Kanye West

Kanye West is going up in flames. Pop’s firestarter heats up the cover of Interview magazine’s February 2014 “Men’s Issue.” In the avant-garde photos, shot by Steven Klein, a burnt and sweaty Kanye sports a diamond grill while breathing fire. Inside the pages, a shirtless ‘Ye rocks Maison Martin Margiela masks and covers himself in white powder.

12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen conducted an in-depth interview with the 36-year-old music mastermind via phone, where he discussed everything from the “Bound 2” video and fatherhood to being snubbed in the major categories by the Grammys and his ultimate goal.

“I’m like a broadcaster for futurism, for dreamers, for people who believe in themselves,” said ‘Ye, whose album Yeezus was recently certified platinum.

Kim Kardashian Shows Off New Photos of North West on ‘Ellen’

North and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby North West is growing up fast. During her visit to “Ellen,” the soon-to-be Mrs. West showed off some precious new photos of the couple’s 7-month-old daughter.

In one pic, taken during a recent trip to Utah, Kanye gives North a piggyback ride. Kim also shared some more recent shots of an adorable North wearing bows.

“He is honestly the most amazing dad,” Kim said of her fiancĂ©. “He loves her so much.”

While Kanye is a hands-on father, one thing he won’t touch are diapers. “He’s not a diaper-changing kind of guy,” said Kim, adding, “But he would if it’s an emergency.”

So does the couple want more kids? “I always wanted about six. After having her, I would have a million, but the pregnancy, I wouldn’t really wish that upon anyone,” she said. “Pregnancy was not a good experience for me.”

When asked about Kanye’s alleged assault of an 18-year-old who used a racial slur, Kim wasn’t able to say much. “I wish I could tell you what went on, I really do, but legally I can’t talk about it,” she told Ellen.

Plus, check out Ellen and her wife Portia’s hilarious parody of Kanye and Kim’s “Bound 2″ video, which they used as their Christmas card.
