A Go Fund Me Page Was Launched To Help Kanye West Get Out Of Debt

Since announcing he's $53 million in personal debt, a loyal Kanye West fan launched a Go Fund Me page to help the TLOP artist get out of the red.

Kanye West recently took to Twitter to announce that despite his extravagant life, he's $53 million in personal debt, which came as a surprise to many since he's earned 21 Grammys and has long been praised for his musical prowess. West even went as far as to ask Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest in some of his ideas.

While many viewed 'Ye's financial woes as pure poppycock, Monday (February 15) user Jeremy Piatt took matters into his own hands and created a Go Fund Me page with the intent of raising money to help The Life of Pablo creator get out of the red.

Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt and it doesn't look like he's going to get Mark Zuckerberg's help that he desperately needs. We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and  can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can't be realized.

As Kanye West has told us time and time again he is the "greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time". Great artists need to be supported financially to achieve their full potential.

To quote Mr. West, "I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who's gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!"

At the time this post was published, other kind fellows like Piatt raised $2,222. Piatt is going for the gusto and hopes to raise the $53 million needed to get Mr. West out of debt.

Sensing some may view the page as a way to crowdsource money for his own personal needs and wants, Piatt later updated the page to inform people, this money was going straight to Kanye, Kim North and Saint.

I'd like to update everyone and let you know that I don't want a penny from this. I would like everything to go to Kanye. Since he is such a high profile public figure, I would prefer to have GoFundMe transfer all funds to his people directly.

At least there are good Samaritans left in the world.

Offset Crashed Cardi B's Rolling Loud Festival Set

Cardi B took to social media last week to reveal her and Offset have called it quits. While she didn't go into detail as to what led to the end of their year-long marriage, the Invasion of Privacy artist took the high road.

Since then social media has been flooded with commentary from both sides. There are many who think Belcalis should give the Migos rapper a second chance, while the other half of the Internet thinks all the Grammy-nominated rapper should do is give her estranged husband his walking papers.

Cardi's been relatively quiet, while Offset launched his "I'm sorry, baby, please take me back" campaign. He took his campaign to new heights Saturday night (Dec. 15) when during Cardi's set at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles he brought out flowers and cake with the words "Take Me Back Cardi.”

The two were seen one stand exchanging words with Cardi's face stoic and nearing anger. Offset later exited the stage, Cardi had the props removed and she continued with her set.

At Rolling Loud...Offset brought out the crazy cake set up in the middle of Cardi's set...flowers that spelled out Take Me Back Cardi...she was so not feeling the gesture and had him and the set up removed! #RolllingLoud

For many, Offset's plea had a larger consequence. Cardi B was the first woman to ever headline Rolling Loud and he interrupted her moment.

Cardi B was the first FEMALE headliner in Rolling Loud history! Honestly, it’s so fucked up that he even did that. Like, you really gonna be out here taking up her spotlight and making her set about you? Nah bro.

Others realized Offset's behavior is far from romantic and called it out as manipulative and toxic.

I woke up and saw how people are glorifying Offset’s actions trying to get Cardi B back and y’all need to see how toxic and abusive this situation is.

Regardless of how even Cardi views it. #Offset pic.twitter.com/Puiu8DCZIa

Cardi B's Upcoming 'Carpool Karaoke' Segment Looks As Eventful As We'd Hope

The Late Late Show with James Corden's popular segment "Carpool Karaoke" will be welcoming Grammy-nominee Cardi B to the passenger's seat on Monday (Dec. 17). The teaser for the segment dropped on the nightly show's YouTube channel.

In the minute-long clip, Cardi and Corden sing along to her tracks "Bodak Yellow" and "Money." Of course, between these music breaks, shenanigans ensue.

Cardi, who has acknowledged in the past that she doesn't have her driver's license, attempts to park the car between cones on the street. Obviously, this doesn't look like a successful attempt, and a few cones are knocked down by the car. Later on, Cardi and James drive past a group of school children. Cardi yells out the window and tells them to stay in school and to behave themselves. We can't wait to see the entire segment next week.

Last week, the new mom was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year for "I Like It," and Best Rap Album and Album Of The Year for Invasion Of Privacy. She also revealed via Instagram that she would be separating from her husband and the father of her child, Offset of the group Migos, after just over a year of marriage.

Oddly enough, the last episode of Carpool Karaoke featured Migos.

'Selena: The Series' Is Headed To Netflix

It's been more than 20 years since Selena Quintanilla's senseless death, but the singer's fans and family have done their part to keep her memory and legacy alive. With the hope of introducing the Grammy-award winner to a new generation, Netflix has ordered a Selena series to live on the streaming platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Quintanilla family will produce what is being described as a coming of age story for the model, actress and fashion designer. It's unclear how many episodes will be in the series and if it'll be 30 minutes or an hour.

"Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come."

Selena began her musical career in the 1980s often performing at festivals in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She quickly rose to fame and earned a Grammy in 1994 for best Mexican/American album, becoming the first female Tejano singer to do so.

In 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar who managed her fan club after it had been discovered she was embezzling money. Saldivar was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The singer's life then made it to the big screen in 1997, with Jennifer Lopez starring in the principal role.
