LeBron James Fiancée Looks Hot, Pharrell Defends Nude Video, KimYe Wedding Plans Back On?
Freaking Friday. It’s a freaky Friday so why not get things started by looking at LeBron James‘ wife, up-close-and-personal? Speaking of must-see women, it’s no secret that the girls featured in Pharrell, Robin Thicke and T.I.‘s “Blurred Lines” music video are completely naked, but Pharrell has a different take on the public’s mixed reactions. Speaking of mixed feelings, the KimYe wedding plans now look like they might be back on? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Queen James
It’s no secret that LeBron James is truly gifted in the sports world, but could he have a fiancée that’s just as gifted? She might not be able to shoot hoops, but Savannah is bringing the Heat out in public with LeBron. Media Take Out has the shot:
July 19, 2013: We have no idea WHAT happened to Savannah . .. but she is grown into a WORLD CLASS BEAUTY – on par with D Wade’s GF GABBY UNION. Sh really had a beauty come up that’s nothing short of AMAZING. Whoever her stylist is needs to be HONORED somewhere for what they accomplished . . . (Media Take Out)
They might not be up there with Jay-Z and Beyoncé or even Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, but once this couple become a married item, they’ll easily be one of the most sought out ones. Can you imagine if LeBron ends up going to the Los Angeles Lakers too next year? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Let Me Explain
For most men, the idea of nudity is nothing big and seeing topless/fully nude women is more of a treat than an offensive act. Pharrell made sure to clear the air on the usage of nude women in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video and he kept it pretty much 100 to say the least. Necole Bitchie has more:
Is this objectification? Pharrell says “No!” He recently told Rolling Stone:
We were trying to make a moving version of a page in Vogue, where you might see a woman’s breast. The body isn’t meant to be objectified.
I know the video has caused some controversy, but my admiration for women supersedes anything I could ever say. We all come through the conduit of the bodies of beautiful women.
Because all three of us are happily married with children, we were like, ‘We’re the perfect guys to make fun of this.’ People say, ‘Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?’ I’m like, ‘Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women.
So we just wanted to turn it over on its head and make people go, ‘Women and their bodies are beautiful. Men are always gonna want to follow them around. (Necole Bitchie)
Considering how much Pharrell does love women and treats them with the upmost respect, it’s hard to think this is objectifiying females. It might push the boundaries but knowing Robin Thicke and T.I.’s marriages to strong women, it’s difficult to see this being as bad as some people have made it out to be. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Euro Trip
Are KimYe destined to get married? Even better, are they going to pack their bags and head out to Europe to tie the knot? RumorFix gives its best guess:
Now that Kim Kardashian has given birth to little baby North, does that mean she’s planning her wedding to Kanye West?
OK! magazine thinks so.
“Kim and Kanye were talking to the baby when in mid-sentence he asked Kim to marry him. She started to cry and mouthed the word, ‘Yes’”, OK! reports.
The tabloid says Kim wants something exotic — like how Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in India.
The magazine goes on to claim, “Kim thinks she’s the spitting image of Egyptian goddess Isis, so she has been talking about doing an Egyptian-themed wedding, at the pyramids. She says Kanye digs the idea too. It will cost millions to fly everyone to Egypt, but money is no object.”
Those writers at OK! probably don’t watch the news, otherwise they’d know that Egypt isn’t the safest place to travel right now — they just had a military coup.
And besides that, Kim’s mom and manager, Kris Jenner, says the rumor is not true! (RumorFix)
Are these stories starting to get boring? One week it’s them getting married and then it’s them on the verge of breaking up for good. With a new baby and new album out, Kanye seems to have plenty of free time on his hands. Are KimYe finally going to get this done? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
