James Blake Shares Remix of Gorillaz 'Feel Good Inc.' Under Name 'Harmonimix' [LISTEN]

14:56PM EDT

On a recent Fabriclive mix posted to SoundCloud, British DJ Rich Reason included a newly unearthed James Blake remix of the Gorillaz classic "Feel Good Inc.," released under the name "Harmonimix." Though the remix is just now seeing the light of day, "Fact" reports that the track is "from back in the day," at least according to Reason. Though the original "Feel Good Inc." definitely has a danceable party vibe to it — as dark and weird as it may be — Blake's remix is much more abstract and harder to dance to, and even strips the song of its signature bass line, which may lead some to ask to the question, "Then why the hell should I even bother listening to this?" You can check out James Blake's Harmonimix remix of Gorillaz's "Feel Good Inc." here:READ MORE

Kris Jenner Insists that Another Divorce Would Kill Kim Kardashian's Career

09:46AM EDT

Kim Kardashian's track record for love has been less than stellar. With two divorces already under her belt, she tends to choose the wrong men. While Kardashian has claimed that Kanye West is her true love and perfect match, we are hearing that behind the scenes things are hardly smooth between them. In the past, whenever Kardashian's relationships have gotten tricky, she would start to look for an exit plan, but momager Kris Jenner has already forbidden her from doing it this time, according to WebProNews. According to Radar Online, Jenner has already told her daughter that her career will never survive another divorce. As it is, whatever remaining fans she has still tend to think that Kardashian's second ill-fated marriage to Kris Humphries was more for their reality show than anything else. She cannot afford to have fans contemplating out loud whether or not she married West just to gain more fame while hoping to become better respected in Hollywood.READ MORE

Kim Kardashian Reportedly Feels Like Her Marriage to Kanye West Is Just a Business Relationship

10:22AM EDT

When Kim Kardashian married Kanye West in May there was reportedly a little nugget in their vows about not spending all their free time together talking shop. Unfortunately, just six months later it seems that her biggest fear has come true: Their whole marriage is consumed by business. Supposedly the couple had an agreement in place that meant that Kardashian would actually work less so she could spend more time with West and their daughter, North West. Once he took over as her official manager, though, her schedule actually ended up getting busier instead of lighter. According to a report by Radar Online, the couple has been fighting a lot because their time together is limited, but when it happens West only wants to talk about business. Once again, Kardashian is left feeling like the marriage she agreed to is nothing like what she had hoped for. She has said that her recent "Paper" cover shoot was to show off how confident she is feeling and that it was also kind of a last hurrah before getting pregnant again.READ MORE

"I have a lot of respect for [Kanye], for what he has been releasing for years," Blake said. "We haven't done a great deal of work in the same room yet, but we've done a few things, kind of helped each other with our own music. In terms of the actual collaboration for this record, it looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that there's a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic."

Anna Wintour Says That Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Are Not 'Deeply Tasteful'

13:02PM EDT

Remember when Kim Kardashian was granted her fondest wish and graced the cover of "Vogue" with Kanye West and their daughter North West? At the time she seemed to think that this one photo shoot was proof that she had gone from Ray J's dirty sex tape to a real class act. Getting Anna Wintour's seal of approval for that "Vogue" shoot meant everything, but now it seems Kardashian might have read into it all a little too much. Wintour was speaking at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday, Nov. 17, and when asked about that infamous cover, she staunchly defended her decision to have Kardashian and her family grace it, but she also let her reason for doing so slip and it is a zinger, according to the "Daily Mail." Wintour talked about needing to, at times, make "Vogue" edgy and create some buzz for it to keep up with current pop culture. "I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It's very important that people do talk about us. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of "Vogue" was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It's such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she's part of the establishment." said Wintour in the "Mail.".READ MORE

Kim Kardashian's Nude 'Paper' Photos Made Ray J $50K: Sales of the Pair's Sex Tape Reportedly Increase

17:10PM EDT

In an interesting turn of events, Ray J is actually profiting indirectly from Kim Kardashian's recent nude photo shoot with "Paper" magazine. Since the shoot went public, sales for the ex-couple's sex tape, "Kim K Superstar," have reportedly increased. A source at Vivid Entertainment, which distributes the porno, told TMZ that there is renewed interest in the title and sales are off the charts. Ray J pulled in $50,000 last week alone from the sales, according to the source. The president of Vivid Entertainment, Steve Hirsch, added that the increased sales made "Kim K Superstar" the highest selling celebrity adult title of all time. Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee's sex tape was the former holder of that title.READ MORE

Rapper Pusha T has shared a new track titled “Lunch Money,” featuring production by Kanye West, which you can check out below. Though Pusha’s verses are totally focused and intense, the real story here is how absolutely insane Kanye’s production is, a psychedelic stew of bubbling synths and unexpected beat changes that come off like a smoother yet more surreal version of Yeezus.
