Katy celebrated her 25th birthday with a willy wonka inspired candyland party, where everyone wore all white and then splattered each other with paint and then had a huge cake fight that resulted in people and the floor covered in paint and cake. How fucking sweet! The Cobrasnake took all the pics. 3 albums full. You can see as the fun progesses. Here's 1, 2, and 3.

So I guess this is a video outtake of Kanye and Spike Jonze getting ready to shoot a video and Yeezy was being an asshole texting and then Spike gets mad & slaps him. This is OBVIOUSLY a fake, a publicity stunt, a pitiful cry for attention, that completely turns me off of Kanye. How are you so eager for attention you plan on playing the asshole. The slap was waaay too dramatic to be true. I'm positive homeboy wouldn't even have the balls to do such a thing and the camera cut off at too right of a moment. Maybe it was a skit, but the media is saying it may be real. Either way, Shame shame shame

Photographer Michael Lavine has collaborated with author Thurston Moore to create their book, Grunge. "An illustrated tell-all account of the life and death of the Grunge movement". It's said that the movement began in the 1980s, in Seattle before taking over pop culture, half-way through the 1990s. "Moore writes about the discovery of Seattle punk youth; the seminal bands that defined the movement; the exploitation of the subculture; the backlash of grunge; as well as the death of his long-time collaborator and intimate Kurt Cobain." Lavine presents an impressing series of photos, capturing the movement live in it's moment. You can purchase Grunge on Amazon now. Hit the JUMP for a bunch of inspiring photos from the book. There's one with Courtney & Kurt that looks psychotic. I love them all!

I don't know how the models walked in these. JUMP to see it all.
