David Letterman on season 2 guest Kanye West: “I think he’s so artistically smart”
David Letterman talks to NBC’s Willie Geist about
his newly announced interview with Kanye West for the second season of
his Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction saying, “Kanye
West. When I was done with Kanye, I kind of
felt like I wanted– you want to kind of father him and I think he’s in
good hands and I think he’s so artistically smart.”
Letterman added about the interview with West, “I
was frightened honestly because I had only met him a couple of times on
the show and I knew that depending on the day, you weren’t quite sure
which path you were going to be on… he was working
on what he calls his Sunday service and I didn’t know what to
expect…and we went to it early in a sound studio in Burbank and it was
remarkably spiritual…it was quite moving.”
More of Willie’s interview with David Letterman will air on Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist on Sunday, May 19.

WILLIE GEIST: So tell me more about the beard.
DAVID LETTERMAN: Well, you tell me about your toupee.
WILLIE GEIST: You went right to it.
DAVID LETTERMAN: I’ve been waiting to use
that line for four years. I wish I had a story. It started out I was
just tired of shaving. And then now, I’m afraid to see what’s under
there. So, you know, there it is…Initially, it was
just pure, ‘I’m tired of shaving’ and then, the longer it went — I
wake up, and I forget that I have it honestly.

WILLIE GEIST: As you sit here today, Dave, do you miss doing late night TV?
DAVID LETTERMAN: You know, the first year, I
sure did. And when they wise up and let you go, you’ll go through it
because you get into a rhythm and so I missed that…but the best part is I
get to do stuff with my son, who is now 16.
DAVID LETTERMAN: People always say, ‘Well,
you know, you’re not going to be the kid’s best friend. You’re going to
be his’ — and I say screw that. Look at me. How much longer am I going
to be around? I want to be the best friend,
but, he’s not keen on me being his best friend.
WILLIE GEIST: So Harry as he moves into his teen years is not as keen on hanging out with Dad as you’d hoped?
DAVID LETTERMAN: That’s right. I’ll tell
you, at my age and you know, this is no breakthrough revelation. But the
most secure I ever feel is when I’m around my son.
Just a few days ago, #KanyeWest was reportedly in negotiations to serve as the creative director of the 2018 #PornhubAwards. On late Thursday night (Sept. 6), that much was confirmed when #Yeezy was revealed to be the co-creative director of the inaugural awards show along with his frequent collaborator, designer Willo Perron. On top of that, he also premiered “I Love It,” a brand-new song and video featuring #LilPump and comedian #AdeleGivens.
The visual, directed by Kanye West and Amanda Adelson, and executive produced by Spike Jones, feels like a pretty detailed glimpse at the colorful, eccentric vibes of a song coming from a ’Ye that’s as experimental as he’s ever been.
In clips from the video, both Yeezy and Pump are rocking some cartoonishly oversized gear—the same muted palette from the Yeezy line—as they make their way through a hallway. For his part, Kanye can be seen rocking the same sort of oversized sandals he used on Instagram to troll folks who criticized the footwear he rocked at 2 Chainz’s wedding last month. He’s also got a massive Donda chain on.
The hook for the track is handled by Pump, who rocks a huge chain of himself and chants, “You’re such a fucking hoe, I love it/Your boyfriend is a dork, McLovin.”
From that point on, we hear Yeezy spitting some very raunchy bars. “You’re such a fucking hoe/When the first time they asked you, ‘You want sparkling or still?/Why you tryna act like you was drinking sparkling water before you came out here?/You’re such a fucking hoe/I’ma sick fuck I like a quick fuck/I’ma sick fuck I like a quick fuck/I’ma sick fuck I like a quick fuck/I’ma sick fuck I like a quick fuck/I’ma sick fuck I like a quick fuck, I like my dick sucked/I buy you a sick truck, I buy you some new tits, I get you that nip tuck,” Yeezy raps.
Recently, Rosenberg from one of New York City’s top urban radio station, Hot 97, gave an interview with the lovely, Amber Rose!
I can say that I truly enjoyed this interview even though it was very short, but interesting enough to hold my attention. Out of all the Amber Rose interviews I have seen I can say that her energy with Rosenberg seemed to allow her to talk more freely about certain topics from her past relationship with Kanye West.
The interview was held at her home, in her backyard I assume…sitting close to her pool but not too far from the make shift fire set up to keep them warm. Amber had a glass of red wine she was sipping on & even referenced how she had a little buzz from it.
They instantly start off talking about her relationship with rapper, Kanye West, and what happened to her after their break up. Amber stated how she never asked of anything from Kanye after the break up, even while being broke while famous. Amber stated “I had to become an entrepreneur quick…you don”t get money from that…I walk outside an its like Oh…Amber Rose! But i’m broke af!”

Amber mentioned how when everyone learned about her past life being an exotic dancer, people was not so quick to embrace the lifestyle like they did when Cardi B or even Blac Chyna became famous. She is glad to feel like she did help to break down those doors in preventing other women who like her came from the exotic dancing background.
As for her love life goals in the future, Amber stated that she did go to see a therapist questioning why she keeps attracting narcissistic sociopaths, no names were mentioned of course. Rosenberg stated that he personally feels as if her “new” relationship is more on a positive level. Amber confirmed that her “new” relationship is that! She stated that his name is Monte, who is from Flint, MI, and loves her, her son, and is just like her best friend.
Even though, Amber did not mention exactly what Monte does as a career, she totally believes in dating a man who has his own. A man who will not look to take from her, but help add to it for she helps a lot with her family. Lastly, Amber mentioned something that I swear I did not know…. she is the reason why Nicki Minaj was featured on the famous hit “Monster” by Kanye!!!! I love women who support other women….YOU GO GIRL!
Kanye West Made The Most Outlandish Comparison Between Donald Trump, MLK And Malcolm X
But wait ’til you catch the tentative name of his political party.
#KanyeWest has been accused of using his slavery apology tour to sell records when the real reason may be political. The rapper is campaigning for that #2024 U.S. presidency we thought (OK, hoped) he forgot.
Continuing his #Chicago homecoming press tour, ‘Ye sat down with #DJPharris on Chicago’s Power 92 Radio to discuss how he’s still down with Trump’s ability not to “f**k up the paper,” despite not agreeing with all of his policies and his presidential aspirations, according to The Fader.
In his praise for Trump, he utterly disrespected #MalcolmX, #Gandhi and #MartinLutherKingJr. by saying they were assassinated because “they were so righteous and so liberal that they f**kin’ up the paper.”
“If you f**kin’ up the paper, your head gon’ get knocked off,” he fixed his lips to say.
Pharris also asked West if he was still eager to hop into the presidential campaign game.
“Yes, 100 percent; could happen [in 2024],” he told Pharris. But that’s not all; the Ye rapper is not going to pigeonhole himself into the Democratic or Republican parties. He came up with his own.
Yes, this is a thing that’s happening.
Y’all ready for the name?
#Kanye has dubbed his new political party: The Birthday Party.
He hinted at his focus: “I’m going to make sure the medical industry flourishes,” he noted.

#PushaT’s #Daytona has been a hot topic in Hip-Hop since its release on Friday. With conversations ranging from immaculate flows to #Drake disses, the G.O.O.D. Music emcee has harnassed the conversation, however, the most controversial may be his album artwork.
For those catching up on the news, #Kanye West purchased the photo of #WhitneyHouston’s hotel bathroom for $85,000 as a last minute cover switch. The immediate family of the late singer has shared they are hurt by the decision, which shows the counter covered in drug paraphernalia and drug covered spoons.
According to People, Damion Elliot, cousin of Houston, was alerted about the artwork from his daughter who was upset at its use. “She sent me this picture from the album cover and I immediately got sick to my stomach because it took me right back to six years ago,” says Elliot.
Elliot also spoke on Kanye’s current “train wreck” but stated that he did not believe the actions of Kanye would go beyond his own issues to harm someone else’s family.
“To do something for a publicity stunt to sell records, it’s absolutely disgusting,” Eliott shared. “It hurt my family and my daughter. It’s petty. It’s tacky.”
Elliott also shared that while he has not heard from Whitney’s mother in regards to the photo, he did attempt to warn his own, Dionne Warwick. Elliott and the family want an apology from Kanye and a switch of album art. But after an $85,000 price tag that may be a distant request.
There are few women who can guide a sex tape scandal into one of the most successful careers of all time. Kris Jenner is one of those women. It’s long been known that Kris is the mastermind behind her large family’s outrageous success, and it seems like her daughters’ beaus are taking note. Kanye West and Travis Scott are now reportedly receiving Kris’s momagerial guidance.
Sources have told Page Six that Kris is the reason behind West’s recent departure from his longtime manager Izvor “Izzy” Zivkovic. Scott’s also decided to leave his management team. “They’ve been off and on for years,” the source said of West and Zivkovic. “But Kris is in [West’s] ears. Kanye’s been making changes and [he and Zivkovic] have grown apart—but Kris definitely gives her opinion and Kanye’s all ears. She’s about brand building and is gangster at it.”
There’s no doubt that Kris plays the role of manager well. On Keeping Up With The Kardashians viewers watch her organize Kourtney’s meetings, Kim’s perfume launches, and Kylie’s appearances. The Kardashians famously run almost all aspects of their many enterprises, so it’s no surprise that even baby daddy’s are being encouraged to keep things in the family. “She also told Travis Scott to fire Mark Gillespie,” the source said. “They are 100 percent part of that Kardashian-Jenner brand.” Scott left Gillespie’s Three Six Zero management last month.
Kris’ first project could be helping Kanye wrap up his latest album, which has led him to take up residence in Wyoming and work with the likes of Drake, Kid Cudi, Nas, and Mike Dean. He also fraternized with Rick Rubin over the three-day weekend. If a new album is imminent, then the momager turned rap manager could be working overtime very soon.
Out of nowhere, a new version of the Kanye West track “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1″ hit the internet yesterday (March 23), and this one features Kendrick Lamar.
While the two rappers teamed up on the Life of Pablo track “No More Parties in L.A.,” it appears Compton Kenny also contributed vocals to “Father…,” which features Kid Cudi on the original version. The beat for the Kendrick contribution starts off like the OG instrumental, but gets chopped and broken down on the TDE rapper’s verse.
“Annie, are you okay?/Ooh, yeah/Do you like foreplay?/Ooh, yeah/Do you go both ways?” K. Dot raps. “I really need confirmation/Your love is abomination/Fucking you is like a bomb of nations/Area 51 in that pussy, ah/The president about to cum in that pussy, ah/I got mind control, I got dick control/I reel ’em in for the fishing pole/I love legs like Robyn Fenty/Stretch them shits like limo Bentleys.”
It appears Kanye is hard at work on his upcoming album. In recent weeks, he’s been spotted in his happy place in Wyoming with a slew of frequent collaborators. Travis Scott, The-Dream, King Louie, producer Pi’erre Bourne, Gunna, Tony Williams, A$AP Bari, Kid Cudi and Nas have all been photographed in the area. Most recently, Drake and his crew were spotted at the resort where West is staying, and the two are reportedly cooking up as well.
