Kanye West is NOT in a good place ...
The rapper/clothing designer looked depressed and hollow at dinner Saturday night with wife Kim Kardashian at a sushi joint in Calabasas. Our photographer on the scene tells us, "Kanye looked distracted and overly-mellow. Kim was kind of leading him around and he just looked out of it."
Ever since Kanye's Yeezy Season 5 show Wednesday at New York Fashion Week seemed to flop, the designer has been a bit "off," according to an X17 source: "Kanye toned down this year's show from previous seasons, not making it this big, splashy thing, in hopes that it would give him less stress and less anxiety but when the reviews came back negative, it sent him to a bad place. And Kim's worried about his mental stability."
To make matters worse, hitmaker Drake recently clapped back at Kanye for the Life of Pablo
rapper's comments during his tour last year, calling Drake's "One Dance" single "overplayed."
Speaking to DJ Semtex on OVO Radio, Drake said:
"I think everybody has their own little things going on, I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time, as in the same breath, I went from being… like working on a project with him, to him sort of publicly s****ing on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much. But yeah I'm not really sure, everybody's got their own thing going on. Again me when I hear that, I just distance myself from it you know, alright if that's what it is I don't really even understand the point you're trying to make but whatever it is that you're going through, I accept it, I don't respect it at all. You know cos I feel like me and Khaled are just good people, I'm not sure why we're the target of your choice that you made that night."
Dredging this up again certainly isn't going to make Kanye's life any easier. The rapper clearly hates bad press and takes everything like this personally. Let's hope he can move past it!

Raindrops keep fallin' on her head!
North West was having the time of her life with a new umbrella and rain boots as the LA weather provided a fun afternoon for Kim and Kanye's offspring.
Kourtney Kardashian took Nori and Penelope out in the rain Friday afternoon and the curly-haired cutie and her cousin were having a rip-roaring time, though Pene wasn't as prepared for the downpour ... and their bodyguard didn't seem to be sharing his Burberry umbrella very efficiently!

We know Vin Diesel has a dream of becoming a singer, with his quirky (awkward) social media posts featuring him lip-synching to some of his favorite tunes, but the fact that Selena Gomez made his dream come true is ... astounding!
The Fast and the Furious
star is actually on the mic for Selena's new track "It Ain't Me," he announced to fans on Facebook, writing: "I don’t know how you did it @kygomusic. Who would have ever believed how mixing my voice with @selenagomez could be so powerful! Can’t wait for the world to hear it. “I literally can’t stop listening to it. Speechless … a dream come true."
In the behind-the-scenes clip, one producer tells Diesel: "You step into something new and you put everything into it, and it was, like, your take on what his world is like, that’s just amazing. … It’s original no one is doing it. So it’s f--king badass. You just came here. You killed it. This is not what you do. You just came here to sing and it’s cool, and it’s your own take on it. You don’t sound like every other f--king songwriter that comes in here and sounds the same and has a good voice. This is just different I don’t know what else to tell you. This is fresh."

Kim Kardashian is back to blonde!
The social media queen posted selfies showing off her new look with a birthday message to former frenemy-turned pal Paris Hilton. She admitted to copping the hotel heiress' look with her cropped, light 'do.
Kim last went blonde back in March 2015 when she debuted the look at the Balmain show at Paris Fashion Week. The 2017 version is choppier, thinner and includes the 'wet' look she employed on her longer dark locks a while back, before she transitioned to her recent Cher hair.
Kim captioned the pic, "Happy Birthday Paris Hilton. Today's vibes channeling Paris! Happy Birthday @ParisHilton Can't wait to celebrate with you soon! 🔥💋🎈🎉”."
Do you like Kim as a blonde?

She's putting her ASSets to good use!
Kim Kardashian shared a bunch of grainy, personal photos from her recent family vacation to Costa Rica on her website, and we've never seen so much T&A in our lives! Kimmy and sisters Kylie and Khloe can be seen suntanning and flaunting their famous curves at their private villa, and the reality star even threw in a wet t-shirt photoshoot for fun!
We guess being basically naked is better than wearing fur!
Speaking of which, Sia just took to Twitter to plead with Kanye to stop using fur in his fashion collections. The rapper debuted the new Yeezy season 5 collection at fashion week on Wednesday, and several of his pieces appeared to be made out of real pelts. Not cool at all!
"Dear @kanyewest would you consider going fur free? This is the reality of fur for fashion - it's so sad," the singer tweeted, accompanied by a horrific video of rabbits being skinned.
PETA then jumped in and echoed those statements.
"@Sia Agreed, the reality of the fur industry is so heartbreaking @kanyewest Please go #furfree," they wrote on their own social media account.
People who wear real fur make us sick to our stomach! We are now calling for a boycott of the Kardashians and 'Ye's fashion line until they wake up and stop being monsters!

We don't get this...
Selena Gomez has reached 110 million followers on Instagram, making her the most followed person on the social media site, and she thanked her fans for the milestone.
“Thank you fam for 110. I promise I will continue to cherish my platform and speaking truth but more importantly, each and every one of you have changed my life. I'm very grateful," she captioned a photo of herself performing to a sold out crowd.
She previously held the title for the most "liked" photo on the app as well, but got dethroned by Beyonce's twin pregnancy announcement.
It's been a big week for the "Come & Get It" songstress, as she just released her new single "It Ain't Me" as well. The tune is the first new material we've heard from the singer since 2015, and people think the lyrics are are obviously about ex Justin Bieber.
"Somewhere along the lines/ We stopped seeing eye to eye/ You were staying out all night/And I had enough/ No, I don’t wanna know where you been or where you’re going/ But I know I won’t be home/And you’ll be on your own," one verse goes.
Add her new romance with The Weeknd, and 2017 is already looking bright for the brunette beauty!

Did anyone think this was going to last in the first place?!
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have broken up yet again, but it sounds like it might be for good this time around, People
reports. "They split a while ago. The wedding plans are off. They are both trying to be mature about it. It was less dramatic this time," a source dished to the mag.
So what was the straw that broke the camel's back? The sock designer's battle with mental health, apparently.
"Chyna is super fed up with Rob and thinks he is way too emotional and depressed. She thinks he has terrible issues. He is always battling his own insecurities and is unstable. It’s a major turn-off to her, and she thinks it’s incredibly unhealthy for the baby and their family," the insider revealed.
"They’re living separately and she’s keeping Rob at arm’s length, both from the baby and from her," the source added. Let the custody battle begin!
The former stripper seems to be already be moving on, as we caught
her out to lunch last week with Jamel Davenport, the same guy she was caught getting a little too cozy with at a Super Bowl party earlier this month.
We hope he snatched that engagement ring back and ran to his lawyer's office!

Sending a message, Bey?
Beyonce shared a slew of behind-the-scenes pix from Grammys night on her website yesterday, and while some of them are touching, others seem to be angled at depicting her as a bad ass b*tch! The "Lemonade" songstress put her baby bump on display in a tight white gown as she gave the middle finger, and we have to wonder if that's her response to losing Album of the Year to Adele?
The legendary diva did win best Urban Contemporary Album, but we all know she basically got slapped in the face at the award show.
"We all experience pain and loss and often we become inaudible. My intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that will give a voice to our pain, our struggles, our darkness and our history, to confront issues that make us uncomfortable. It's important to me to show images to my children that reflect their beauty so they can grow up in a world where they look in the mirror, first through their own families, as well as the news, the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the White House, and the Grammys, and see themselves," the Houston-born beauty said in her acceptance speech.
Good thing husband Jay-Z was there to support her, and the below image of them walking hand-in-hand backstage is proof they're still drunk in love!
