Because trying to get Kanye tweeting has become 2019's most cynical means of promoting a forthcoming album, The Game has some completely unnecessary things to say about Kim Kardashian West on a new track.
The line in question comes from a single that debuted at listening party on January 24. Here it is (and I’m so sorry):
“I held Kim Kardashian by the throat, n****. I made her swallow my kids until she choked, n****.”
Judging by Kim’s makeup and sateen Kitson babydoll dress in the photos of the two of them, the pair probably dated around the time she was organizing Paris Hilton’s closet, which would make those swallowed kids high school aged by now, so maybe shut up about it.
Someone close to the situation told TMZ that “Game chose to rap his truth regardless of the consequences.” Ok.
Top Chef’s Fatima Ali has died. In 2017, Ali was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. After a surgery to remove a tumor in her shoulder, she said she was “technically cancer free” in July. But in October, Ali wrote a funny, heartbreaking, and absolutely lovely essay for Bon Appétit in which she revealed that her cancer had returned:
“My oncologist has told me that I have a year to live, with or without the new chemotherapy regimen,” Ali wrote. “I was looking forward to being 30, flirty, and thriving. Guess I have to step it up on the flirting. I have no time to lose.”
Earlier in January, Ali’s season 15 castmates reunited to be with her in the hospital, and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi posted a very sweet Twitter tribute on Friday:
