Cannon V. Kanye – And the Beef Goes On

Kanye West is warning Nick Cannon to never utter his wife's name...especially when Drake's involved.

Don't even THINK about Kim K. getting down with Drake.

Hell, don't even mention her name. That's what Kanye West is fuming and Nick Cannon's having none of it. It all stems from speculation that once upon a time, Drake and Kardashian West were an item. Or at least they got to know each other very well.

While the Wests completely deny the whole Drake thing, Cannon – an ex of Kardashian West's – went public on The Shade Room to speculate on how the notion of Drake and Kardashian West getting down and dirty "Isn't a far-fetched thought."

As CNN (yes, even CNN is interested in this tomfoolery) reports, Cannon explained , "As a fan, stepping back, there's something real personal Drake holds over that whole family, that he's like, 'Y'all don't want me to let this out.'" And for a family that airs all their dirty laundry for all the world to see, if Drake does have something on Kardashian West, it has got to be juicy.

There's even a Drake song where he refers to a "KiKi" in the lyrics. Anyone who watches Keeping Up With The Kardashians knows "KiKi" is a nickname for "Kim" often used by her sisters. That said, Kardashian West says she is not the "KiKi" Drake sings about. Even if the "KiKi" is another woman, West gave Drake a lesson in…shall we call it…etiquette?

See, West went on a multi-tiered Twitter tirade, bashing not only Cannon but Drake as well. He gave Drake his school of thought. If he "had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita and then you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn't make no song called 'Riri.' You're too smart for that, bro. You know where that comes from. Don't make no record with nothing that could be confused." Perhaps Drake was smart, knowing this "did they/didn't they?" chatter would erupt.

But Kanye's going after Cannon, basically for having an opinion. So what if he thinks Drake and Kardashian West once "smashed" as he stated on The Shade Room? If one doesn't "throw shade" in The Shade Room, then what fun is that? And Doesn't West have bigger fish to fry? He's all about having an opinion…as long as it's his apparently.

As expected, Cannon won't back down and tweeted out a video addressing the matter. He said, "Nothing but love and respect for you (West), you know I always had that, but I honestly gotta say this my dude, I've never said anything disrespectful, harmful, in my opinion, to your marriage or your union. I salute it, keep it going. But you not gonna tell me what I can and what I can't say."

The cherry on top? West is upset with model Tyson Bedford too. Bedford made a comment on a pic of Kardashian West and it didn't sit well with West. Kanye, can't we all just get along?

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry... The Feud is Over!

The Pop Stars Have Made Up… Unless it's All Made-Up


Did you hear it?

The "fat lady" has finally sung. No, obviously not Katy Perry or Taylor Swift – they are anything but portly – but the fact that the stars have once and for all called a truce means that their "beef" is over. The years-long feud between the A-list entertainers has been resolved, thanks to Perry extending an olive branch - and we don't mean figuratively - to her one-time enemy, Swift.

The two have been like oil and water ever since it was alleged that Perry "stole" backup dancers from Swift's tour, leading Swift to blab to Rolling Stone that her latest song lyrics were based on the petty event. That was in 2014 and it took four years for these "grown-ups" to get over it.

They "threw shade" at one another through their songs, videos, and in interviews, and repeatedly aimed to one-up the other with strategically-timed music releases, "squads," and "diss tracks." Perhaps the two kept it going for the attention, but with all the evil in the world, one would think millionaire musicians would be grateful for being young, rich, and beautiful. But like Swift sings, "haters gonna hate."

Maybe Perry was acting on her New Year's resolution nearly half a year in to apologize and mend broken fences. Just in time for Swift's "Reputation" stadium tour, she sent Swift the olive branch along with a nice note in the hopes that Swift would let bygones be bygones. And doggonit, Swift was finally ready to forgive. But like the rest of us, after four years of this nonsense, it will be hard to soon forget.

Then again, we can thank Perry and Swift for duking it out, so to speak. Without their sensational squabble, we would have never been blessed with "Bad Blood" or "Swish Swish." The singers' tribulations turned into some pretty catchy tunes. Go figure.

Now that these gals are on their way to a newfound friendship, take a walk down memory lane with pics of their relationship and musical journey. And you can bet your bottom dollar that a musical collaboration is in the works.
