Kanye West has vowed to stop his controversial rants for "six months at least."
The "Bound 2" rapper is no stranger to controversy, most recently slamming the Grammy Awards for not adequately recognizing his latest record Yeezus, but he has now promised to curb his infamous diatribes in the New Year and focus on being positive.
Kanye opened up while on stage for his Yeezus tour in Toronto, Canada, earlier this week, saying, "Everything I'm saying that's not allowed, soak it in right now ... this might be the last time y'all hear me talk s**t for a long time. Might be another like six months. At least. You're just gonna have to run back [my past] interviews and s**t if you wanna hear some realness!"
The 36-year-old rapper - who has a six-month-old daughter, North, with fiancee Kim Kardashian - alluded to his recent controversies, such as slamming sports brand Nike, who replaced him as a spokesperson, and his choice words for the Grammy Awards voting committee:
"I went from people just thinking I was, like, a baby to people thinking I'm this, like, sex freak that really just pops molly and does lines all day. It's like, 'Has anyone ever heard of rock 'n' roll?' There's a sex scene in pretty much every single movie, and they go, 'Well, that's a character.' Well, that's a character. I don't really dress as a teddy bear and, like, twerk on Robin Thicke, you know?"

Now that Ashton Kutcher's divorce from Demi Moore has been finalized, insiders are claiming that the Two and a Half Men star will soon be putting a ring on girlfriend Mila Kunis' finger this holiday season.
"They talk about getting married and having kids... An engagement is imminent," a friend close to the former That 70's Show co-stars said.
The pair - who were recently seen together in Kutcher's home state of Iowa - have been dating for two years, and friends call them "inseparable." A source on the set of Kutcher's sitcom points out that "they hang in his trailer."
In leaving Moore behind, pals of Kutcher say that he's also turned his back on the party life, opting for quiet nights with Kunis in their Hollywood Hills home: "Ashton and Mila cook together. He knows he ended up with the right girl."

+ She may be one of the most famous and successful former SNL cast members these days, but Kristen Wiig still appreciates her privacy and expects fans to respect it, too. Even if you're a star from The Real Housewives of New York, Wiig will apparently still ask you to not put your fan photo with her on a social networking site.
+ What do Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel, Jamie King, Jessica Alba, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner all have in common? Their love of holiday onesies, naturally.
+ Has Keri Russell moved on from her husband of 7 years, Shane Deary? Sources who spotted Russell with her Americans co-star Matthew Rhys in New York City recently say that the pair looked to be more than just friends.
+ Beck is tied up in a heated lawsuit over a $11,000 security deposit on a Malibu location he rented from German Inglorious Basterds star Til Schweiger.
It looks like the Kardashians have some competition in the holiday family photo department.
Miley Cyrus took to her Instagram to share her clan's - which includes Billy Ray, Tish, Miley, Trace, Noah, Brandi, and Braison - holiday photos, which sees them recreating an old, awkward snapshot and another where they're pretending to fight each other (seen after the jump). While these photos aren't as lavish and grandiose as the aforementioned reality family, these Cyrus photos make me wish that the they adopted me! And can we please take a moment to look at how freaking adorable Miley was as a kid?

A Christmas miracle to some and utter disappointment to Beliebers, Justin Bieber has reiterated his statement on retiring yesterday.
Although an insider close to the musician quelled fans' shock when he initially told Los Angeles radio station Power 106 last week that he was retiring, the 19-year-old confirmed the news again on his Twitter.
"My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring," he wrote on the social networking site. Additionally, the "Boyfriend" singer hinted at the reason behind his career decision: "The media talks a lot about me.They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I'm never leaving you, being a belieber is a lifestyle."
He also reassured fans, wishing them a Merry Christmas and posting, "IM HERE FOREVER [sic]."
Until we get a more official word from his team, I'm probably not going to trust the Twitter page of a teenage star who's been acting recklessly in the past few months, but that's just me. Let's not forget that Britney Spears went back to work after her meltdown...

Rachel Zoe has named her baby son Kaius Jagger Berman.
The stylist and her husband Roger Berman announced the arrival of their second child on Twitter on Sunday, before sharing the tiny tot's moniker on her website yesterday. "As loyal readers of The Zoe Report, I wanted you to be the first to see a picture of the beautiful new addition to our family, Kaius Jagger Berman, aka 'Kai,'" she wrote.
Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes have split up.
The couple, who went public with their romance in September after releasing their duet "Almost Is Never Enough," broke up a few weeks ago as their relationship had run its course. "They just weren't into it anymore," a source said.
The 20-year-old "The Way" hitmaker previously gushed about the "amazing" The Wanted singer, 20, and recently insisted it wasn't "tough" for them to spend time together despite their busy schedules. "It's not as tough as people would think. We have the same music manager, so we can see each other's schedules and plan little trips as often as we can," she told the February 2014 issue of Teen Vogue.
But a source close to Nathan said they "hardly ever saw each other" and are currently on a break.
Charlie Sheen won't be spending Christmas with any of his children.
The Anger Management star had planned to spend the day with his sons, Bob and Max, tomorrow after reaching an agreement with their temporary guardian, Scott Mueller, who is his ex-wife Brooke Mueller's brother, and is furious it will no longer be happening.
The 48-year-old star vented his rage on Twitter today, writing, "no kids on Xmas! can I unwrap the gifts this kangaroo sukk, pig circus court gave me now? thanks B&D (Brooke & Denise) enjoy my hate! [sic]."
But an insider told gossip website RadarOnline.com that the actor never cleared his plan to take the boys with Scott. "Scott had never agreed to let Charlie spend Christmas Eve or Christmas day with his son's with ex-wife, Brooke Mueller. Brooke would never have agreed to it either. Charlie was telling people he was going to see the boys so that he wouldn't look bad for planning to take his porn star girlfriend [Brett Rossi] to Europe," an insider explained.
