Meet Special "K" The Homless Rapper
The creators of "South Park" are putting their own spin on Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video.
On Wednesday's season finale titled "The Hobbit," a cartoon version of Kanye reworked the song to dispel a fictional rumor that his fiancée Kim Kardashian is a hobbit.
The Hobbit rumor started after the "South Park" character Wendy slammed Kim for being a "short overweight woman who manipulates her image." Wendy added that "in real life, Kim Kardashian has the body of a Hobbit."
During the episode, the Kanye character also defended Kim by calling her reputation as a Hobbit "not funny" and "not true." He also refers to himself as a "recovering gay fish," which is a reference to a 2009 "South Park" episode where Kanye is called a "gay fish."
Beyoncé released a surprise album at midnight on Friday.
The self-titled record (see cover art at left) features 14 tracks, plus a whopping 17 videos for a truly "visual album."
In an announcement posted to Facebook (watch below), the singer explains why she chose to release so many songs and videos simultaneously — and without warning.
Drake ("Mine"), Frank Ocean ("Superpower"), and even daughter Blue Ivy ("Blue") are among the special guests.
Of course, husband Jay-Z is also featured — on a song called "Drunk in Love," an apparent sequel to the couple’s hit "Crazy in Love."
They join a star-filled roster of collaborators that also includes the rest of Destiny’s Child (Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland), Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell.
The videos were filmed across the globe as Beyoncé was on her "Mrs. Carter Show" world tour, with shoots in New York, Paris, Sydney and Rio de Janeiro.
The record marks Beyoncé's fifth solo studio album, and is available exclusively through iTunes.
The superstar’s last album, 4, was released in 2011.
Check out her track list:
1. Pretty Hurts
3. Drunk in Love (Featuring Jay Z)
9. Mine (Featuring Drake)
11. Flawless (Featuring Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)
12. Superpower (Featuring Frank Ocean)
14. Blue (Featuring Blue Ivy)

(Yahoo!) - Oprah Winfrey seems to have it all, but the one thing she never wanted? Kids!
While the 60-year-old media mogul did have a baby when she was 14 (the child died weeks after birth), she revealed in the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment issue that she's actually known since she was younger that being a mom just wasn't for her.
"Gayle [King] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade home ec class, was writing down the names of her children," Winfrey said of her bff. "While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King."
Clearly her career has played a big part in her decision to not have a family, something she's thought a lot about. "If I had kids, my kids would hate me," she said.
Oprah revealed to Barbara Walters in 2010 what she thought would have happened if the circumstances were different and she ended up being a parent. "I'd be one of those people that the kid's coming and saying, 'Mom, you've neglected me.'"

A$AP Rocky got a little confused when he was interviewed by Miley Cyrus’ older sister Brandi at a charity event in New York on Tuesday.
Not realizing who Brandi was, the rapper told her, “You look like Hannah Montana. You ever get that?”
Brandi started laughing and said, “I do get that. Do you wanna know why I get that? Because she’s my little sister.”
“Oh sh*t!” was A$AP Rocky’s response.

(Yahoo!) - Everyone's jaws dropped on Wednesday morning after they saw how fabulous Kim Kardashian's post-baby beach bod looked on Us Weekly's latest cover - hat is, everyone's jaw except for Kim's.
"Omg! Insider's" Thea Andrews caught up with the reality star Wednesday morning at The Hollywood Reporter’s 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast presented by Lifetime, where - proving that she's her own harshest critic - she revealed that seeing that picture only made her want to work harder in the gym.
"I don't know if I really love that shot," Kim confessed.
"You worked really hard for it though, and you're being recognized for it," Thea replied.
"I'm so critical of myself, so I look at it [and] I'm like, 'Alright I have to get back in the gym, don't slack for the holidays,' after seeing that," noted the 33-year-old beauty. "And I'm like, 'I have a couple more [pounds] to go.'"
Kim also opened up about how focused she was on whipping her physique back into shape after having given birth to daughter Nori in June. "It just feels good for me that I really was never a dieter and I could never stick to anything. I had more will power, so I think because of so much media scrutiny it really motivated me actually … to want to really stick and commit to something," she continued.
"And after like six weeks for the doctor to say you can start working out and dieting, I really stuck with this. So I was really proud of the accomplishment that I stuck to a diet that before I was never able to do."
Toya Wright only spent a few hours in the slammer after she was arrested in Atlanta for an unpaid parking ticket, but Lil Wayne‘s ex says she was traumatized by the experience.
The former reality star says she wants to advocate for better treatment of inmates after her horrific ordeal.
She told the site she has plans to “advocate for better treatment of inmates” after witnessing events she called “inhumane.”
Even though reports say she was arrested for an unpaid parking ticket, she says she won’t be breaking the law again.
“Please believe I’m working on lightening up my lead foot.”
