3 Reasons Why Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Relationship Won't Work

You know your rumored relationship has taken on celestial heights once your every move is documented in Beyoncé and Blue Ivy-like fashion. Everywhere they turn up, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are adding more fuel to a fire that has either been rekindled or continues to be flaming hot. While confessions of love over a Hit-Boy-produced beat à la “Theraflu” are more shocking than romantic, who’s to say it didn’t throw the chocolate-loving Kardashian sister into a thirsty stupor? Here are three reasons why the KimYe connection is nothing but bad news.

1. “Welcome To Heartbreak”
Last time ‘Ye was mending a broken heart, 808s & Heartbreak was born, an experimental musical production that still gets praise today. Then there were the attention-grabbing shots on Chris Brown’s “Deuces (Remix)” and the release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that established his artistic genius in angst. Eventually the Chi-town rapper learned better than to run his mouth after Jay told him not to. Still, feelings for his past beaus, especially the soon-to-be-wed Amber Rose, seeped into his verses every once and a while. As golden as his throne was, Yeezy was a lonely king.

Flip to Kim who has been in and out of very public relationships for all of the world to see on E! After a short-lived marriage to New Jersey Net Kris Humphries and many sporadic hook-ups with athletes prior, it’s safe to say that the Armenian romantic may be in love with the idea of loving Kanye but is not emotionally ready to handle actually doing it. The ex-relationship baggage these two carry would be enough to land the flight before it has even taken off.

2. “Who Gon Stop Me”
Kanye West is a man of his passions who was certainly on the ascent post-breakup. Transforming his inner chaos into well-received works of audible art, fans--both old and new--were flocking to venues just to watch the throne live. It allowed him to spawn intellectual Twitter rants and a clothing line inspired by his mother, Donda West. It seemed the award show-stopping, egotistical West had channeled his strong emotions into their proper place.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has always been a proud businesswoman who touts her brand on the regular. From fragrances to a chain of nationwide Dash stores to a Sears’ clothing line to books, there is no contractual end to her entrepreneurial endeavors. Add a relationship into their already hectic schedules, and it could take away from their success. After all it was the lack thereof that had them winning in the first place.

3. “Heard ‘Em Say”
No need for the falsetto-pitched Adam Levine to serenade us with the fact that nothing’s ever promised tomorrow today. As paparazzi favorites and frequent blog headliners, it’s hard to catch a break from the spotlight that both Kanye and Kim seem to illuminate on a daily basis. The two are very familiar with public romance but won’t be equipped for coupledom of this magnitude. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have mastered the art of controlling the media by letting select details of their personal lives leak out on their own terms (i.e. Baby Blue’s first photos and Beyoncé’s Tumblr of personal snapshots), whereas the double K’s have had their good, their bad and ugly sprawled all over accessible outlets…for years. Their lifestyles have been molded in such a way that they are used to immediate satisfaction, whether on a personal or professional level. They claim to have been friends for years, so why sacrifice the permanence of a platonic partnership? Seeking comfort in one another during a tumultuous time may be a temporary solution to their individual and seemingly ongoing problem: coping with how to be alone, a privilege neither gets. Once they have conquered solitude, then maybe they can work on being together.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
