Selective memory much?
We caught Kanye West heading to a business meeting today in LA, and he total denied ever dissing Drake when we brought up the subject. Our videographer told Yeezy that he agreed with him about Drizzy's music being overplayed, and that's when 'Ye backpedaled. "I never said that!" he quipped.
The rapper has clearly forgotten about that 20-minute rant he went on at his Sacramento concert back in November, when he basically said radio stations play too much of the Canadian star's music and not enough of other "great" artists like Frank Ocean.
"Radio, f**k you! I know there's a lot of real n***as working at radio. Real people, real program directors, with wives and kids that love music. They can't play what they want to play because they've been paid to play that bulls*it over and over and over. And when I say that bulls*it, what I'm saying is... we love Drake, Drake is great. He's a great artist. But Frank Ocean is great too," he screamed onstage. (skip to 2:15 in the below Youtube video.)
The "Hotline Bling" crooner took the high road when asked about diss during a recent interview on Beats 1's OVO Sound Radio.
"I think everybody has their own little things going on. I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time because, in the same breath, I went from working on a project with him to him sort of, like, publicly s‑‑ting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much," he said.
"When I hear that, I just distance myself from it. If that's what it is, I don't even really understand the point you're trying to make, but whatever it is that you're going through, I accept it. I don't respect it at all. Me and Khaled are both just, like, good people. I'm not really sure why we're the target of your choice that you made that night. But again, I accept what you're going through," he added.
The Louis Vuitton Don isn't exactly lying, but he's certainly splitting hairs!

This is equal parts impressive and disgusting!
Angelina Jolie and her six kids are currently in Cambodia so that the actress can promote her new film First They Killed My Father, and she's making sure they get a taste of the local cuisine... by eating tarantulas! The Oscar winner fried up spiders, bugs, and scorpions while doing a BBC interview, and she looks like an old pro at it!
"You start with crickets. Crickets and a beer... and then you kinda move up to tarantulas," she tells the interviewer. Brave Shiloh and Knox even take a bite, and they think it tastes like "flavorless chips." Yuck!
Angie then chows down on a scorpion! You have to watch the whole video!

This baby is literally the only good thing to come out of that relationship!
Rob Kardashian has struggled in recent years, but he clearly relishes in being a dad, and he made that clear by posting this adorable photo of himself cuddling daughter Dream. "My favorite pic of us," he captioned the snapshot.
We think it's actually a blessing that Kimmy K's bro seems to be serious about his breakup with baby mama Blac Chyna this time around.
"They split a while ago. The wedding plans are off. They are both trying to be mature about it. It was less dramatic this time," a source dished to People
So what was the straw that broke the camel's back? The sock designer's battle with mental health, apparently.
"Chyna is super fed up with Rob and thinks he is way too emotional and depressed. She thinks he has terrible issues. He is always battling his own insecurities and is unstable. It’s a major turn-off to her, and she thinks it’s incredibly unhealthy for the baby and their family," the insider revealed.
"They’re living separately and she’s keeping Rob at arm’s length, both from the baby and from her," the source added.
The former stripper seems to be already be moving on, as we caught her out to lunch last week with Jamel Davenport, the same guy she was caught getting a little too cozy with at a Super Bowl party earlier this month.
We're predicting a nasty custody battle!

Aww, they're little material girls!
Madonna shared this cute video of her newly adopted twin daughters singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" in their pajamas over the weekend, and it looks like they're happy with Mama Madge!
The pop icon announced that she had officially added Ester and Stella, 4, to her brood earlier this month.
"I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family. I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible, and I ask the media please to respect our privacy during this transitional time. 🙏🏻 Thank you also to my friends, family and my very large team for all your support and Love! 💘🦋🦋🌺🌼🌸🦋🦋🙏🏻🙏🏻✈️✈️😂🤣🦋🦋♥️🌺🎈♥️," she wrote on social media.
They had been living in an orphanage for two years before the 58-year-old filed to become their legal parent. Their father is still alive, but their mother died a week after child birth in 2012.
Now they're living large in a $40 million penthouse on the Upper East Side!

Daaaang! While the cat's away the mouse will play!
While Miley Cyrus is off vacationing with her family at their ranch in Nashville, Liam Hemsworth was left to his own devices in defending himself against our aging videographer in a confrontation in Malibu.
As our 65-year-old paparazzo approached the Aussie to ask about wedding plans with Miley, Liam wasn't having it and shoved the video camera, pushing our shooter backwards and temporarily destabilizing him. But it wasn't over yet, the two mouthed off to each other -- our guy telling Liam not to touch him and Liam and his pals insisting that they be left alone.
Okay, I get it, you're trying to scope a wave break on a rainy Sunday morning but chill, dude! As our aging pap says, "You're an actor, get over it." I mean, becoming a big Hollywood movie star and hooking up with Miley Cyrus ... you did
kind of ask for it, dude.
Meanwhile, Miley was down south with the family at their farm in Nashville, Tenn. She posted these adorable pix of her with siblings, Brandi, Trace, Braison and dad Billy Ray and mom Tish.

Congrats are in order!
Zoe Saldana announced on Instagram that she and husband Marco Perego have welcomed a new baby boy, and she must have quietly used a surrogate, because she was never seen with a baby bump!
"Marco and I are elated to share the news of the birth of our son Zen. We couldn’t feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys… oh boy!” she captioned the snapshot.
The couple are also parents to twin sons Cy and Bowie, 2.
That's a full house!

Cover your eyes now, Brad!
Angelina Jolie is quietly hooking up with Jared Leto, Star
magazine reports. The Oscar winner has apparently had a crush on the Suicide Squad
star for "years," and decided to explore that after her split from Pitt.
“There has always been a spark between them. Now, during these tough times for Angie, it seems Jared has helped her cope and even brought her out of her funk. They’re kindred, unconventional spirits — so much so that I think Jared could be the perfect guy for Angie if she’s ever ready for a new love in her life," a source dished to the mag.
"Jared reached out to Angie after she filed divorce papers in September. The word is they spoke several times on the phone before meeting up in L.A. for dinner, and they’ve been seeing each other whenever they can since then," the source added.
We were about to give Angie props for being a cougar, but then we realized she's four years younger than her new man! He did seem to be in a very
good mood when we caught up with him at LAX yesterday....

Another day, another makeup-free lunch in sweats with Tyga!
Kylie Jenner certainly has her routine during these rainy LA afternoons: throw on some sweats -- her own Kylie merch, to be exact -- skip the makeup, gas up the Lambo and head to lunch with your on-again-off-again lover Tyga. Sounds like a plan!
Saturday it was sushi, Sunday, Sagebrush Cantina, where a cover band was playing Red Hot Chili Peppers -- certainly not the norm for a rapper and his lady. Perhaps it was the unusual atmosphere at the Cantina that cause Kylie to hold onto her man for dear life. Oh wait, she always does that -- even after Tyga hooks up with other girls (or dudes) and then comes begging for Ky's forgiveness. She'll always be there waiting for her man!
