Never say that Yeezy doesn’t like to get his hands dirty. Amidst a new report that claims Kanye refuses to change North West’s diapers, a source close to the rapper sets the record straight for HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Nonsense,” a source close to Kanye tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “He changes his baby’s diapers and goes beyond the call of duty for his child.”
On July 4, a report stated that while Kanye was a good daddy, changing diapers was the one thing he wouldn’t do, according to Us Weekly.
But Kanye was clearly shortchanged by the report — he’s an all-around, full-effort kind of father. “Ain’t nothing he wouldn’t do for that baby,” the source strongly states.
Kanye West: A Good, Hands-On Dad
HollywoodLife.com also reported exclusively that Yeezy has the necessary training to change diapers — Cedars Sinai, where North was born, taught him how:
Every new mom and dad that leaves here with their newborn baby is fully prepared on how to take care of their little one. It doesn't matter if they are famous or not, both mom and dad are taught by the nurses how to properly change a diaper. Most of the new moms are adamant that their significant other learn how to change a diaper!
Besides being well-trained, Kanye has also made sure to be as hands-on as possible, and that means making sure either him or Kim is with Nori at all times, a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively:
They made a deal that for the first six months to a year, the baby has to be with either one of them. So if Kanye is out working, Kim has the baby. And if Kim's working, Kanye's on duty. They're not trying to leave the baby in somebody else's hands. They are hands on parents and will be that way forever!
Kanye would have never made that promise if he wasn’t prepared to change a diaper or two!
The rapper continues to be discounted as a parent, but take it from us, this guy is dedicated to his child and will do anything for her. Even if it means getting a bit of a mess on his mink coats.
Onesies, blankets, teddy bears, and what!? The Duchess of Cambridge has been showered with gifts as her due date rapidly approaches, but one present in particular definitely had to catch her off guard.
Say what you want about Finland, but you cannot accuse them of giving lame gifts. The Finnish social security office, Kela, reportedly sent Kate Middletona care package to celebrate her soon-to-be motherhood, and some of the gift’s contents are downright shocking (and pretty hilarious, too).
Kate Middleton’s Shocking Baby Gift
Kela reportedly sent Kate a package that contained leggings, a snowsuit, a hooded bath towel, a hairbrush, diaper rash cream, a teething toy, and a picture book, according to The Mirror.
And oh yeah, one more thing — condoms!
Yep, right next to the diaper rash cream was a pack of prophylactics for Kate and Prince Williamto enjoy. Kela gives the unlikely combination care package to all expectant moms in Finland, according to the Mirror.
Kate Middleton ‘Delighted’ To Receive Unusual Gift
An official statement was released from Kensington Palace after Kate received the package:
We were delighted to receive the very kind gift of the maternity package from the Finnish government. It was a very thoughtful gesture and we're very grateful for it. I'm sure the Duke and Duchess will be very interested to see the contents.
You can say that again!
All jokes aside, it really is a nice gesture and a sort of adorable gift of good will. But it looks like we may have to wait a long time before Kate has a second child.
What do you think of this unusual gift, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
The best part of Independence Day doesn’t happen until nighttime, when our favorite stars take the stage to help Macy’s celebrate the holiday. This year’s show is stocked with stars like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, and you can watch the whole thing online!
Sure, the Fourth of July is known for its barbecues and sunny daytime parties, but the real party starts with the 37th annual “Macy’s Fourth Of July Spectacular.” Besides putting on an amazing fireworks display, the show will also feature awesome performances by Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and more. And this year, you don’t even have to leave your laptop’s side to catch all the action!
Watch ‘Macy’s Fourth Of July Spectacular’ Online: Live Stream Video
That’s right, Selena will be taking the stage — what a way to celebrate America’s birthday. Her performance was actually filmed a few days earlier at Liberty Park in New Jersey, so we’ve already gotten a sneak peek at the sexy, high energy stuff Selena will bring to the table. And boy do we want to see more!
Selena’s BFF, Taylor will also be performing, and while we haven’t seen her performance yet, we really hope she plays “Red.” It’s just too bad she hasn’t written any songs called “White and Blue.”
‘Macy’s Fourth Of July Spectacular’: More Than Just Fireworks
But our two favorite starlets aren’t the only ones breaking it down for Independence Day. The show, hosted by Nick Cannon, also features performances by Mariah Carey (nice little family integration, huh?), Tim McGraw, and Pitbull.
Finally, the most important event of the night — the fireworks. This year’s display, which will be shot off over the Hudson River in New York City, is extra special. That’s because it will feature a collaboration with the one and only Usherfor the first time ever. The singer will be putting his creative stamp on the fireworks show, which he’s calling “It Begins With a Spark.” They had us at fireworks, but what an amazing bonus Usher is!
All the Fourth of July fun starts at 8 PM ET, and you don’t even need a TV to enjoy! Just click below and have an great Independence Day, HollywoodLifers!
Chris Brown Disses Rihanna: She Clearly Needs Attention
“Yeah, he saw it,” a source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively. “All he did was laugh at it, say, ‘wow,’ and shake his head.”
The source goes on, adding that while Chris still has respect for his ex, he thinks she’s trying way too hard: “He loves her and has respect for her that’s out of this world, but clearly she’s desperate for attention.”
And even considering Rihanna’s blatant attempt to get Chris riled up, he’s still cool with her. “He has no hate in his heart,” the source says, “He hopes she’s well and happy.”
That’s gotta sting for Rihanna — not only is she being called desperate, but she didn’t even make Chris a little jealous!
Rihanna: Was She Twerk-Dissing Chris Brown?
But did Rihanna even make the twerking video to diss Chris? A source close to the Unapologetic singer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively no: “She's not sending a message to either of those guys.”
“She was feeling the song and wanted to drop it a few times,” the source adds. “It’s just a video of her dancing.”
Regardless of Rihanna’s real intentions, it’s still a video of RiRi sexing it up specifically to a song by an enemy of Chris’. It sounds like a recipe for disaster, but Chris’ cool reaction is another sign that he may actually be moving on. The old him surely would have reacted differently.
Kate Middleton’s Child Could Be Prime Target For Kidnapping
Ken Wharfe, a former bodyguard for Princess Diana who was actually Prince William’schildhood bodyguard, stated in a new interview that the new royal baby is being brought into a world where the threat of kidnapping has never been higher. Talking to Look magazine, Ken explained:
Kate's baby could be in danger. Given the political state of the world and the vulnerability of the royals, they need a lot of protection. In this terror-ridden world of ours, there's a real risk of kidnap for this child.
Ken went on to explain that the baby will be in much more danger than William was as a child. “The world is a much more dangerous place than it was 20 years ago, when we would take William and Harry out,” he stated.
Jeez, now we’re really paranoid!
Bodyguard: What Kate Middleton & Family Will Do To Keep Baby Safe
Ken — thankfully — also did a bit of reassuring, laying out the extensive security measures that will likely be taken to ensure the baby’s safety: “What they will have to do is surround themselves with police, which could be a multi-million pound operation.” Well, whatever it takes!
There is no doubt in our minds that the royal family has taken every step necessary to guarantee the baby doesn’t come into any danger. We know Kate is fierce enough and nurturing enough to stop at nothing to keep her new baby safe.
It’s the Fourth of July, everyone — America’s birthday! The Fourth is a perfect day for celebration, and before the stars headed out for barbecues, beers, and fireworks, they took to Twitter to wish everyone a happy Independence Day.

Rihanna seemed to be doing some serious fire-starting on July 3 when her friend posted a video of the singer twerking to a Drake song. But was RiRi actually trying to stir the pot — HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE answers.
Chris Brownlikely doesn’t want to even hear Rihannaand Drake’snames in the same sentence, so it probably didn’t feel too good to see an Instagram video of his Unapologetic ex twerking to Drake’s song, “F***ing Problems” on July 3. Rihanna’s been known to diss Chris via social networking before, was this just her latest — and possibly most cutting — dig yet?
Rihanna: Sending A Message To Chris Brown & Drake?
A source close to Rihanna tells HollywoodLife.comexclusively that despite what it looks like, she was NOT trying to piss off her ex-boyfriend. In fact, she wasn’t even sending any love Drake’s way with the video: “She’s not sending a message to either of those guys. When have you known Rihanna to be shy or passive aggressive? If she wanted to talk to either one, she would reach out to them,” says the source.
It is true that Rihanna isn’t afraid of confrontation, but she does have a history of Twitter feuding. There’s a difference between being afraid and just enjoying a little smack talk online — Rihanna seems to apply to the latter case. But if we accept that Rihanna wasn’t trying to diss Chris or send a message to Drake, then why make the video in the first place?
Rihanna ‘Was Feeling The Song’
The source has a very simple answer: because Rihanna just felt like it. “She was feeling the song and wanted to drop it a few times,” the source says. “Just because Drake and Chris have beef, that has nothing to do with her. She was feeling the song and thought she’d share [the video].”
“It’s just a video of her dancing,” the source concludes.
So that means it was just a coincidence that Rihanna was twerking at the exact moment Drake’s verse starts on “F***ing Problems!” What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you believe that Rihanna was just dancing? Let us know!
Wow! K-Stew did her sexiest impression of Catwoman while at a fashion show in Paris on July 4. Has the revenge dressing begun?
We did not really know Kristen Stewarthad this in her, but wow, we are glad she does! While everyone in America was red, white, and blue on July 4, K-Stew went all black in a super-sexy jumpsuit while attending the Zuhair Murad fashion show as part of Paris’ fashion week.
Kristen Stewart Stuns At Paris Fashion Week Again
Kristen is definitely pulling out all the stops in Paris. After wearing a sexy, punk chic outfit at the Chanel show on July 2, the 23-year-old actress turned heads yet again in this black number.
The outfit, a black jumpsuit with a rippled corset top and lace pants, showed Kristen’s powerful side and showcased her sexy, athletic body in ways we usually don’t get to see. It was definitely a statement look, one that says K-Stew is moving forward and has possibly been reincarnated as a sexy vixen!
Kristen Stewart: Getting Back At Robert Pattinson & Riley Keough?
And don’t think Kristen didn’t have her ex, Robert Pattinsonin mind when she was donning her cleavage-baring look. As K-Stew stuns in Paris, Rob has found himself a new girl – Riley Keough. On July 3, amidst reports that Rob and Riley were not seeing each other, HollywoodLife.com’ssources reconfirmed the relationship exclusively:
If [Rob and Riley] don't want to make it official then that's fine, but there's an attraction. They just don't want it in the news and don't want it to look like they are shoving it down people's throats. They are having fun and people [close to them] consider them dating. If they [themselves] don't, then it's a technicality.
Kristen is reportedly “livid” about Rob’s new fling, and she appears to be expressing that anger and getting her own revenge through her outfits. We can’t really complain — she looks sexier than ever! What do you think, HollywoodLifers?
And what a holiday it is! Though Jay-Z’s new album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ was only released to Samsung Galaxy users on July 4, two of the album’s tracks have hit the internet, one featuring his beautiful wife and another with his BFF, Justin. Listen to them below!
Of course Jay-Zfound a way to detract attention away from the Fourth of July. The iconic rapper (partially) dropped his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, on July 4, but you can hear the two most star-studded tracks from the album, with Beyonceand Justin Timberlake, right here.
Jay-Z & Beyonce Stick Together
Jay’s collaboration with his wifey, Beyonce, “Part II (On The Run),” is a pretty, catchy documentation of their lives together. “I don’t care if I’m on the run/Baby as long as I’m next to you,” Beyonce croons on the track.
The song talks about how they started at the bottom and have now propelled themselves to near royalty — and they’ve done it all together. There’s also an underlying sense that both Jay-Z and Beyonce have no problem shrugging off the haters because they can lean on each other through hard times. It’s about as beautiful and touching as rap gets.
Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake On Fame
And then there’s “Holy Grail,” featuring Justin Timberlake. Jay helped out on JT’s The 20/20 Experience, now it’s time to repay the favor. This song tells a much different story, far from love. It’s a study on the harsh give-and-take relationship of fame.
Jay and Justin have worked so hard to get to where they are — to achieve a certain level of freedom most will never know. But now that they’re at that level, they’re realizing that it comes with a whole different set of limitations. “Can’t even take my daughter for a walk,” Jay-Z poignantly raps. It’s a very interesting point that hip-hop’s tendency towards opulence hardly ever touches on.
And boy, Justin’s voice is insane on this track.
Listen to both “Part II (On The Run)” and “Holy Grail” below and let us know what you think, HollywoodLifers! And remember, Magna Carta Holy Grail is released to the whole public on July 7!

Justin Bieber Parties With Mystery Girl In Las Vegas
Regardless of how Justin currently feels about Selena, one thing's for sure — he's not keeping his sexy body to himself! Justin was spotted with a mystery girl in Las Vegas on June 29, and photographers even caught the pair heading back to Justin's hotel after allegedly partying until 6 a.m.!
Justin was in Vegas for a double performance at the MGM Grand Arena, but he clearly took the opportunity to mix business with pleasure.
