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:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning to get married at the Palace of Versailles.
The couple - who have six-month-old daughter North together - have their sights set on having a spectacular ceremony at the royal chateau, which is located southwest of Paris, and money is no object to Kim and Kanye.
"Kanye has never been married and wants a big [wedding]. They are not working with a budget," a source told Us Weekly.
When Kim was 19 she married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 but they split in 2003 when he filed for divorce. The sexy star then tied the knot with her second husband, basketball player Kris Humphries, in a $10 million wedding in August 2011, but filed for divorce just 72 days later.
Kanye is taking responsibility for planning the big day, which he wants to be the "biggest show on earth," and Kim is happy to let her fiance take control.
Kanye West has hired Andy Warhol's cousin to paint Kim Kardashian.
The 36-year-old rapper, who recently boasted his fiancee is "the most beautiful woman of all time," has commissioned Monica Warhol, who is related to the late legendary pop artist, to create a one-off portrait of the brunette beauty.
Monica told the New York Post's Page Six she is very excited about the project and despite never getting the chance to meet Andy, who passed away in 1987 when she was 10, she believes he would have been very impressed by Kim: "She's an icon. She's famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her. Kim is beautiful. She's so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie."
Arizona-based Monica has previously painted portraits of rapper Flo Rida that appear in the music video for his song, "How I Feel," and also painted a likeness of Lenny Kravitz, after meeting him in the Church Boutique in Los Angeles.
Kim Kardashian has hit back at suggestions she doesn't spend enough time with her daughter.
The reality TV star, who is currently accompanying her fiance Kanye West around the U.S. on his Yeezus tour, lashed out at one critic on Twitter and insisted their five-month-old little girl, North, is with her 24/7.
The brunette beauty was furious after one of her 18.8 million followers apparently questioned her bond with North in response to a tweet she posted on Saturday that read, "We took our baby girl swimming today for the 1st time, she loved it so much! #BestDayEver," and failed to include a photograph of the event.
Kanye West's music video for "Bound 2" might be garnering a lot of attention from fans all over (including James Franco and Seth Rogen, who loved it so much that they parodied it), but rumor has it that West's future mother-in-law Kris Jenner is not one of those fans.
Despite the positive buzz praising Kim Kardashian's post-pregnancy body - which is ostentatiously showcased in the music video - the reality star's momager isn't impressed by the video's popularity. "Kris went ballistic, telling her daughter this is worse than the 2007 leaked sex tape that Kim made with her ex-boyfriend Ray J, because that was meant to stay private, while this was meant to go public," a source revealed. "She started crying, saying how ashamed she was to see her daughter being 'forced into something so degrading.' She's saying that Kim's destroyed all of her credibility."

Kanye West says his daughter North is the same as Prince George.
The "Heartless" rapper claims his five-month old child should be considered royalty and an equal to the young prince, the first born of Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine. "My daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London," Kanye said in an interview on Power 105's Breakfast show.
Kanye West has reportedly banned Kim Kardashian from undergoing cosmetic surgery.
The "Stronger" hitmaker - whose mother Donda tragically died from surgery complications after a breast reduction and liposuction in 2007 - is having a clause written into their pre-nuptial agreement stating she will have to pay a reported $500,000 if she has any work done and he is said to have warned her their wedding is off if she goes under the knife before their big day after discovering an email from a surgeon about secret plans for surgery.
"Kim met with her surgeon to discuss having a nose job and liposuction on her thighs and tummy before their wedding next summer. She was planning to do it in March when Kanye would be working in Paris. She hoped by the time he returned to Los Angeles she would have healed and Kanye would never know. He flipped and said if she went ahead with the procedures then the wedding was off," a source said.
Kanye West has vowed never to mention Barack Obama's name again.
The "New Slaves" hitmaker has been criticized a number times by the US president - including advising young people not to look to the wealth of the rapper and his fiance Kim Kardashian as an example of success, and branding him a "jackass" after he interrupted Taylor Swift's 2009 MTV Music Awards acceptance speech - but Kanye believes the politician only uses his name to be "down" with young people:
"I just think that we're pop icons, and the President likes to use that type of thing just to be down [popular]. People were fine with me being everyone's punching bag for about five years - 'This is the person we love to hate, so if you want to distract people from everything that's going on... just say you hate Kanye and there's going be 30 other people who say they hate Kanye.' That was kind of my position in culture and he kind of used that too - 'Oh, he's a jackass' - because that's how the world felt. I'm not going to mention him anymore, I'm past that, that's out my thoughts. That's lowering my priority of thinking at this point."
Kanye West has been giving advice to students at Harvard.
The "Yeezus" rapper made his debut as a guest speaker at the prestigious Harvard School of Design yesterday, before his concert in Boston, and he explained why he's being doing two-hour interviews with the likes of Oprah Winfrey recently.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, he said, "The reason why I turn up so much in interviews is because I've tasted what it means to create and to be able to impact and affect in a positive way, and I know there is more creativity to happen. I know there are traditionalists that hold back the good thoughts and there are people [in] offices that stop the creative people and are intimidated by actual good ideas. And I believe, like, utopia is actually possible. But we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest and the most political. In no way am I a politician; I'm usually at my best politically incorrect and very direct. I really appreciate you guys' willingness to hone your craft and not be lazy."
Kris Jenner hopes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will marry next year.
The couple - who have five-month-old daughter North together - got engaged last month after the rapper proposed at the AT&T Park baseball stadium in San Francisco in front of her family. Kim's mother Kris is very excited about the nuptials but has no idea when they will happen, although she is hoping for a 2014 ceremony.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight correspondent Cheryl Woodcock Kris was asked if she knew when the wedding will take place, to which she replied, "As soon as I know, I'm going to let you know. Hopefully, probably, next year." Kris also revealed Kim is yet to pick her bridal gown when quizzed by Cheryl, only answering, "Not yet."
