We're kinda in love with Frank Ocean's mom.
On January 1, Frank's momma Katonya Breaux took to Twitter to BLAST Kim Burrell for her homophobic rant which has recently gone viral. Katonya is especially offended since Kim's vocals's appeared on Ocean's celebrated album Blonde, which is problematic considering the artist is an openly gay man.
Talk about a fierce way to open 2017, right?!
Katonya's message is out there loud and clear too, as multiple outlets are now spotlighting the matriarch's message.
Not one to be trifled with, Breaux made a case for Burrell's vocals to be stripped from the track Godspeed, arguing:
The rapper has made no secret of his support of Frank Ocean, and is, like most, a huge fan of his new album.
But after learning neither of Ocean's 2016 albums, Blonde nor Endless, will be eligible for consideration for the year's Grammy awards, Yeezy is pissed!
And since Mr. West knows all too well that the Grammys have a history of bending the rules for other artists, he won't bother showing up to the ceremony if his friend and collaborator doesn't get the same treatment.
At the Oakland stop on his Saint Pablo tour, Ye addressed the crowd on the inner workings of the Recording Academy, and how they allegedly made exceptions for their eligibility rules — like Lady GaGa's 2010 Grammy performance.
Entering one of his now-expected stage rants, Kim Kardashian West's husband said:
Need to shed a tear and get over someone?
Khloé Kardashian has got your back!
The eclectic mix of old and new songs will be sure to leave you feeling some type of way, and you just know she had to plug Kanye West in there somewhere!
Koko penned to her fans:
"Sometimes all a girl needs is a good cry and some musical healing. I made a playlist of the saddest songs so you can let it all out, LOL!"
We've all been there!
So without further ado, let's mend your broken heart with the playlist (below)!!
It's only a matter of time before he claims he made french fries famous…
But in his latest creative endeavor, Yeezy exposed his love affair with McDonald's in a new poem inspired by the fast food chain!
The glossy zine contained a copy of the CD (we don't know what that is either…), as well as high-fashion photos, short stories by Ocean, interviews, and apparently some deep-fried poetry from Ye!
In the poem, Kanye discusses his complex relationship with McDonald's french fries — claiming the salty side dish is "evil" because he can't "trust no food that smells that good, man." Good to know!
Ch-ch-check out West's full poem (below) to get a taste of his caloric musings!
Another day, another album — and so much for all those Frank Ocean album delays!!
The artist, who posted up his own pop-up shops last night, a la Kanye West, had a long lead up to this album's reveal.
Formerly called Boys Don't Cry, the album features Nikes as well as songs like Ivy and White Ferrari, and is available on iTunes and elsewhere.
Here's the full track list (below):
