Bless his heart, 'Ye just can't catch a break.
Kanye West made his triumphant return to Paris Fashion Week last night and the critics weren't all that impressed.
There were only 20 looks for his fall collection and a good majority of them were Mugler and Givenchy rip-offs.
The New York Times' Eric Wilson said Kanye was supposed to a press preview ahead of the show, but canceled at the last minute because "he got treated unfairly by the press last time" and if "if they don’t understand it, they don’t understand it".
The snafu certainly didn't help win Wilson over, who later wrote in his review: "Mr. West’s approach to making a dress was like a cook wrapping leftover turkey."
We have to admit the styling and panda meets Taylor Momsen makeup was pretty awful.
What do U think? Is it time for Kanye to hang up his hat and focus his attention elsewhere???

The Pretty Reckless have a LOT to be excited about these days!
The band, fronted by former Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen, is opening for Marilyn Manson during his North American tour dates after wrapping up their own, just released the stunning music video for their new single, You, and now, are prepping the release of a brand new extended play, called Hit Me Like A Man, on March 6th!
Check out the EP's cover (above)!
And according to tracklist, there will be three new tunes, on top of some excellent live versions of Make Me Wanna Die and Since You're Gone!
SO exciting! We've been SO impressed with the quality of this band's music, and are very anxious to treat our ears to some more!
Check out the full list of songs on the Hit Me Like A Man EP…AFTER THE JUMP!
Wow! From Gossip Girl to this!
Gotta hand it to her! This is a pretty big deal!
Taylor Momsen recently announced that her band, The Pretty Reckless, would be embarking on The Medicine Tour around North America throughout March and April, and apparently, they're rapping that one up right on time, because they've just signed on to open for Marilyn Manson while he tours the States!
Check out a full list of dates…AFTER THE JUMP!

Little J is all grown up!
Taylor Momsen has more than grown past her Gossip Girl days and today, releases her latest music video with her band, The Pretty Reckless.
No doubt she's going to hear more people compare her to Courtney Love and get complaints about it being too "scandalous," but you know what? We think this is an awesome representation of her as an artist. It shows how much she has evolved as a person and performer and makes a statement about where she wants to take her music. Plus, its a chance to really appreciate her vocal talent. She's quite impressive!
Check out the video (above) to watch and hear the band's latest single, You!
Pretty sweet, right? You should try and check them out live when they come to town. Maybe she'll do an acoustic arrangement!
Well color us surprised!
Taylor Momsen arrived at the Marchesa fashion show on Wednesday night actually wearing clothes — a knee length lace dress to be specific.
The one thing the Pretty Reckless singer left the same was her black eyeshadow, but since that's her thing we don't mind.

It's about time!
We've actually been very impressed with their tunes!
Taylor Momsen has dropped Gossip Girl to focus full-time on her band, The Pretty Reckless, and the actress/singer recently announced that they'll be hitting the road for a six-week tour across North America!
“We’re busy rehearsing new songs. I’m excited to play them for our fans and give them a taste of what’s to come from The Pretty Reckless.”
And we're excited to hear them, gurl!

Hey gurl! Longtime no see.
FHM's March cover features a provocatively posed Taylor Momsen in her usual pantless getup and heavy eye makeup.
When she wasn't giving her pouty faces to the camera, the Pretty Reckless singer dished on her love of stripper shoes and what she likes in a guy.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her shoe fetish:
"I love stripper shoes and I always try to find the tallest ones. I’m always surprised no one talks about my shoes. I’m, like, on stage in 15-inch heels but people talk more about my eye make-up, which has stayed the same forever."
On her love of high heels:
"I'm 5ft 8in. So I’m really tall. I got into heels when I was little, though. My mom’s really short so she always wears really tall heels and I used to steal them and now it’s just a part of my everyday life."
On her "type":
"I don’t like guys who overdress. And I don’t like guys who try too hard. My biggest thing is be yourself. Be yourself and if people don’t like you, then they can suck a dick. I don’t like people who pretend to be something to fit into a certain crowd or guys who pay more attention to how they look than you do – that’s not a good thing."
Such a classy girl, that Taylor is.
