First Kim visited the White House, now it’s Kanye’s turn!

Kanye went to the White House Thursday afternoon to speak with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office. In a speech that exceeded 10 minutes, Kanye brought up a number of his concerns. Each one had little to no direction, and some of them were spoken in rhyme.

“There’s lots of things effecting our mental health that makes us do crazy things that puts us back into that trap door called the 13th amendment. I did say abolish with the hat on because why would you keep something around that’s a trap door? If you’re building a floor the constitution is the base of our industry, right? Of our country, of our company. Would you build a trap door that if you mess up and if you-accidentally-something happens, you fall, and you end up next to the Unabomber?”

One thing the Hot Topics Bureau noticed is that Kanye’s phone passcode is 00000.

Iyanla Suggests Tamar Does Reality TV

Iyanla Vanzant thinks Tamar Braxton should stop doing reality TV. Tamar called Iyanla “the devil” after the Braxtons sat down with her for a therapy session on their show. Well, according to The Jasmine Brand, Iyanla feels her show will negatively affect Tamar’s mental and physical health, and that Tamar is addicted to attention the way a crack addict needs another hit. She believes the reason is because Tamar is the youngest.

Iyanla threatened to sue Tamar for defamation.

Mariah Carey Vs. Ariana Grande

Mariah and Ariana might have a similar vocal range, but that doesn’t mean they get along. The two reportedly haven’t been friendly with one another for quite some time, and Nick Cannon finally explained why.

“Ariana made the cardinal mistake of saying, you know–or I don’t even know if it was her. It was associated as like, ‘the next’ or ‘the new’ Mariah Carey. What the [bleep] does that mean? Like, ‘I’m the Mariah Carey…’ I personally at one point was like trying to get them together because Ariana was such a great fan and such an amazing young lady, and Mariah’s super cool too. But when you put that weird sh*t in-between, then all of a sudden competition, ego.”

There’s only one Mariah, and there’s only one Ariana.

His sidekick puppet Charlie McCarthy was just as popular. Candice was his only child and when her father died in 1978, he left her out of his will, but left the dummy $10,000. Candice shared that while growing up, the dummy had his own bedroom, and it was bigger than hers!

Some parents were surprised at what LeBron James admitted he allows his two sons to do.

“I have very mature 14 and 11 year olds. My 14 and 11 year-olds drink wine. That’s how mature they are… put it on me though. Don’t put it on Mom, put it on Dad.”

Lebron Jr. is 14 years old and Bryce is 11 years old. He said the boys drink what ever he and his wife are drinking.
