The Sight of Kim Kardashian Makes Man Physically Sick

If you thought you were sick of hearing about Kim Kardashian, spare a thought for Mike Amess, a man who vomits at the mere mention of the reality star. The 24-year-old from England has such a severe reaction to the big bootied one that he can’t bare to open a newspaper or turn on the television in fear of seeing her or any of the dreaded Kardashian clan.

“Just hearing the sound of the Kardashians' nasal voices or catching a glimpse of them on screen makes me feel nauseous and shaky," Amess said, according to the Daily Mail. "My hands get clammy, my breathing gets heavier and I start sweating. Sometimes, I get teary and want to retch.”

Mike says his phobia of the sisters started when he first watched Kim’s now infamous sex tape at the age of 17.

“I was raised Catholic and growing up, I tried to repress my sexuality and deny that I was gay," he said. "Loads of the boys at school were going on about how good Kim Kardashian's sex tape was. I thought I'd give it a watch in the hope it would turn me on. I downloaded the video and watched it secretly in my bedroom. But the sight of Kim writhing around with her huge bum and the sound of her horrible high-pitched wailing repulsed me. I really wanted to be aroused by her so I kept watching it but she made me feel more and more upset.

"By the end of the tape, I had burst into tears. The experience left me terrified and I never wanted to see Kim's face again."

Now that Kim and her family have turned into mega stars Mike says his life has turned into a nightmare.

“Kim and her sisters look and sound so similar - they're a mess. They make my stomach churn, I hate it. I dislike everything about them, especially their physical appearance. I don't understand how anyone could find them attractive. I can't stand their voices either. They're so whiny and shrill - it really gets under my skin. It's impossible to get away from Kim, let alone her whole family. Every website or magazine you read has them plastered all over.”

The poor guy says Kim has ruined his life in several ways-relationships have ended due to the gay community idolizing the star he dreads and friends continually teasing him about his odd fear.

"Once, my friend put a picture of Kim Kardashian on his bathroom door so I couldn't go to the loo all night," he said. "It was unbearable! Another time, one of my mates got drunk at a party and chased after me with a photo of Kim's 'Belfie' on his mobile phone. They find it hilarious but they don't realize how traumatic it is for me. I wish I wasn't scared of the Kardashians."

We can't make this stuff up, Vixens. Flip to see more of Mr. Amess and his unique phobia.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
