Turnt Up Tuesday. It’s a day to get turnt-up, turnt-up, so why not start things off with Kim Kardashian going off on Kanye West‘s critics over his wheelchair comments last weekend? Speaking of critics, should people lay off Floyd Mayweather, Jr. for allegedly not tipping a waitress? With millionaires still on your mind, is Eminem trying to get a few more in his pocket?
1. Roll Out
Does Kanye West need Kim Kardashian to fight his battles? Probably not but considering how many followers she has on social media, it couldn’t hurt. Kim K decided to stand up (no pun intended) for her man over his recent demands at an Australia show. Instagram has the info:
What an amazing Australian tour! Its frustrating that something so awesome could be clouded by lies in the media. Kanye never asked anyone in a wheel chair to stand up & the audience videos show that. He asked for everyone to stand up & dance UNLESS they were in a wheel chair. #JustWantedEveryoneToHaveAFunNight #TheMediaTwistsThings (Kim Kardashian’s Instagram)
Was this necessary? Does Kim have to fight Kanye’s battles? Is she doing this as his wife or using the opportunity to get some extra press? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. C’Mon Floyd
Is Floyd Mayweather, Jr. a penny-pincher? You would think as hard as he balls, he could spare a few million, or at least thousand, here and there. That didn’t seem to be the case during a recent outing. TMZ has the scoop:
Nik Nguyen tells TMZ … she thought she’d hit the jackpot when Floyd walked into Rehab at the Hard Rock Sunday afternoon with around 150 people. Floyd and crew ordered: 5 bottles of Patrone – $2,375 3 Grey Goose – $1,425 6 bottles of Ciroc – $2,850 20 bottles of Luc Belaire Rose champagne – $11,500 1 6-liter bottle of Luc Belaire Rose – $6,500 200 chicken wings – $600 1 fruit platter – $55 TOTAL BILL: $25,305.
Nguyen tells us … she went the extra mile to provide Floyd and company with excellent service. Not surprisingly … the Hard Rock ended up comping Floyd, and he showed his gratitude by leaving Nguyen … chicken bones, empty bottles and that’s it. (TMZ)
Could this really be the case? Did Floyd give someone money to tip the waitress and it never made it to her? Could Floyd have really tried to not tip her? Was gratuity already included on the check? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Just Lose It
Is Eminem really in need of extra money or is he just passionate about his music? Slim Shady has taken legal action against New Zealand’s National party for banking on his “Lose Yourself” track without his blessing. NME has the skinny:
The rapper’s publishers, Eight Mile Style, LLC and Martin Affiliated, LLC, said that they were seeking damages for copyright infringement after backing music similar to the song was used in the election advert.
“Eminem’s publishers were not approached for permission to use any of Eminem’s songs for this campaign advertisement,” Joel Martin, spokesperson for the publishers told the New Zealand Herald. (NME)
Could Eminem land a few million in this situation? Will things turn ugly in court? Is this an easy win for Slim? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
