Kim Kardashian West is worried about Fashion Week stress on Kanye
After giving Kanye West space over the weekend ahead of his New York Fashion Week Yeezy 5 debut, Kim Kardashian West flew from Los Angeles to New York to be with her husband. Kim arrived at night on Monday, Feb. 13, and was spotted stepping out solo shortly after getting settled in her apartment. An insider tells People Kim is focused on supporting Kanye this week because the stress involved with fashion shows for his Yeezy collection "has been very bad for him in the past." Poor reviews of Kanye's last New York show have been said to have contributed to his meltdown and hospitalization in November. "There is definitely some concern that the show will be too much stress for him. He gets so involved and it's hard for him to not get obsessed," says the source. Meanwhile, Kanye's friend Malik Yusef said over the weekend that Yeezus is "healing" and his "'memory is coming back." His show is set for Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 5 p.m., in spite of complaints from the CFDA that Wednesday at 5 was already assigned to Marchesa.
Who was Blue Ivy's adorable friend at the Grammys?
When Beyonce accepted the award for Best urban Contemporary Album for "Lemonade" at the Grammys over the weekend, cameras showed Bey's 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, clad in a Prince-inspired Gucci suit, cheer for her mom while sitting with her dad, Jay Z. And while Jay was Queen B's date, it looked like Blue had a little friend-date of her own — the adorable girl in a white and silver dress who sat by her side. Us Weekly reports Blue's pal is Madison Brown, whose dad is Roc Nation co-founder and president — and Rihanna's manager — Jay Brown.
David Duke trolls Chris Evans about appearing in photos with brown women
In the wake of their brief Twitter feud about Jeff Sessions last week, David Duke and Chris Evans traded barbs on social media again on Sunday, Feb. 12. The former Louisiana congressman — and Imperial Wizard of the KKK — started this one with a collage of photos of Chris with women who happen not to be white. "Why does Chris Evans, who plays the Jewish inspired super hero, Captain America, hate the women of his people so much? #WhiteGenocide," he tweeted (via the Root) alongside photos of Chris with his ex, Jenny Slate, Naomie Harris and others. As he did in their first exchange, Chris maintained his calm. "I don't hate them," he wrote. "That's YOUR method. I love. Try it. It's stronger than hate. It unites us. I promise it's in you under the anger and fear."
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd 'are falling for each other'
Not even Justin Bieber's Instagram trolling can keep The Weeknd from getting closer to Selena Gomez. "They are falling for each other," an insider tells E! News. The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, has already talked to Selena about becoming exclusive and "has told [Selena] how much he cares for her," the source says. The couple reportedly enjoy the "crazy connection" they share, while The Weeknd makes Selena "feel really confident." They've also kept their relationship relatively low-profile in the hopes of avoiding the kind of public drama that came with Selena's relationship with her ex, Justin, both while they were dating and after they split. Says the source: "Abel is proud to have Selena by his side."
Lady Gaga and her new man 'were very affectionate' at Grammys afterparty
Lady Gaga and her new boyfriend, CAA agent Christian Carino, made their second public appearance together this month at the Interscope Grammys afterparty at the Peppermint Room in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 12. A spy tells the New York Post that when Gaga wasn't dancing with John Travolta or chatting with Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross, she was openly cozying up to the commercial endorsement agent. "They were up at the bar hugging and very affectionate," said the spy. "Gaga had no problem showing affection." Christian has previously worked with Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Amber Heard, Miley Cyrus, Zooey Deschanel and Jennifer Lopez, according to the tab. Gaga, who split from her fiance Taylor Kinney last year, performed "Moth Into the Flame" with Metallica through some technical problems at the Grammys that night.
Ed Sheeran got turned away from his label's Grammy afterparty
Lady Gaga had better luck on the party front than Ed Sheeran, who also performed at the Grammys, had on Sunday. The New York Post reports Ed didn't make it inside his own label's afterparty that night because the Warner Music Block Party was already at capacity within one hour of when it began. "Ed couldn't get in," a source told the tab. "He got turned away from the door. He was nothing but polite … There was a fire marshall and it was a capacity issue, so it was out of everyone's control … Other artists couldn't get in either." Ciara, Jason Derulo and Gary Clark Jr. managed to squeeze into the bash before Ed was nixed at the door.
Shailene Woodley wishes she looked tougher in her mug shot
"Big Little Lies" star Shailene Woodley stopped by "The Late Show" on Monday, Feb. 13, where Stephen Colbert checked in with her about a certain photo that made its way to the Interwebs in October. After joking that he thought the shot was of Shailene "auditioning for 'Orange Is the New Black,'" Stephen said, This is you actually having been arrested at the Standing Rock protest." Turns out Shailene kind of wishes she could have a Take 2 on the pic. "I wish I had known that this was going to be as public as it was. I would have made a [tough] face," she said, according to E! News. "I feel like I'm just looking at the person like, 'Are you kidding me right now?'" She went on to reveal that her mom had been in North Dakota the day she was arrested and ended up filming the protest with Shailene's cell phone. "The tribe at Standing Rock has been opposing this pipeline since 2014. Last year, starting around September, thousands of people flooded to the reservation to protest this pipeline," Shailene explained. "We got the Army Corps of Engineers under Obama's administration to deny the easement, so they couldn't drill. And as we've all maybe heard, in the last few weeks there has been an executive order from Trump's administration saying that they were going to go ahead with the easement anyways and start drilling … the protest at Standing Rock is continuing. People are still there." The actress added: "The front lines don't necessarily have to be in North Dakota. The front lines can be wherever you are," she explained. "You can create a protest in New York City — because protests are about creating awareness and people coming together."
`North and Saint West gave Luna Stephens a dope Valentine's Day present
Kimye and the extended Kardashian-Jenner krewe aren't the only ones ready for Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 show this week. Thanks to a gift from the rapper and designer's kids, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's daughter is already a Yeezy fashion plate — although it may be tough to find a seat small enough for her at New York Fashion Week. In a Snapchat video on Monday, Feb. 13 (via the DailyMail), Chrissy showed off an envelope with the words, "Luna -Happy Valentine's Day beautiful baby girl! Lot's of love North and Saint," as the new mom marveled, "Oh my gosh, Kim and Kanye, my baby is doper than me, my baby's cooler than me!" The gift inside? A pair of tiny black Yeezys.

The increasingly new and improved Justin Bieber proved he's all about law and order on Saturday, Feb. 11, when he bought a round of coffee for half a dozen Orange County Sheriff deputies who were hanging out in the cafe he walked into in Mission Viejo, California, according to TMZ.
