— Be careful what you wish for, Kanye West.
In an interview with Vibe magazine, the Grammy-winning rap artist said he hopes to have fewer fans in the future.
“I made a decision. I wanna make popular music, but I want less fans,” West declared. “I want the freedom of having less fans. It's like the freedom of having less money. If you have less money, you have less responsibility.”
Well, sooner or later most celebrities enjoy both of those “freedoms,” but West doesn’t want to wait too long for his big chance at being a little less famous.
“It's like Björk,” he explained. “If she wanted to pose naked, you'd be like, 'Oh, that's Björk.' But if I wanted to pose naked, people would draw all type of things into it. I definitely feel like, in the next however many years, if I work out for two months, that I'll pose naked. I break every rule and mentality of hip-hop, of black culture, of American culture.”
Drew Barrymore welcomes wrinkles
She first hit the silver screen at the age of five, and since then audiences have watched Drew Barrymore grow up before their eyes. Now, at 33, the actress insists she enjoys growing older and would rather take a break from the big screen than let it bother her or her fans.
“Gravity and wrinkles that come with aging are fine with me, it means nothing compared to the new wisdom inside my head and heart,” Barrymore told the UK’s Metro. “It's the best time of my life. I don't think I've ever been happier.”
While Barrymore has “utter gratitude” for getting work in an industry known for not allowing its actors to age, she doesn’t stress about the future.
“If my breasts fall down to the floor and everything starts to sag and becomes hideous and gross, I won't worry,” she said, adding, “I'll just stop appearing in front of the camera.”
‘Trek’ feud continues to boldly go on
There’s still no end in sight in the ongoing feud between “Star Trek” veterans William Shatner and George Takei.
Last year the actors went back and forth over whether or not Takei invited Shatner to his September nuptials, with TV’s Captain Kirk insisting he was snubbed, and Sulu claiming his former co-star was simply a no-show.
Soon, both sides vented long-held frustrations, and in November, Shatner took to his YouTube channel to issue Takei the chance to hash it out on his new talk show, “Shatner’s Raw Nerve.”
That, evidently, is news to the not-so-YouTube savvy Takei.
“Bill hasn't invited me,” the actor said in a quote posted to Contact Music. “I only heard about the show a few days ago and when I did, I thought to myself, 'Aha! He's trying to create controversy again'. Well, I'm not going to bite the bait!”
