In one 2018’s strangest, yet altogether not-unexpected pairings, Kanye West teamed up with Pornhub to direct their annual awards ceremony. The event, which transpired last night, found Kanye West premiering a new song with Lil Pump, designing various trophies, and bringing a new line merchandise to life. The exclusive clothing line, which celebrates the night’s big winners, can be seen and purchased at Yeezy Supply. In truth, one has to wonder which demographic the line is targeted for; it takes a truly brazen individual to rock a “Splash Zone: Top Squirting Performer” sweater.
In any case, Kanye West’s newest line will surely find a willing crowd, who have come to cherish his additions to the fashion industry. In case you were wondering which ladies earned the change to be immortalized in Yeezy history, the list goes as follows: Mia Malkova, Riley Reid, Lena Paul, Abella Danger, and Kendra Sunderland. A word warning, however; the shirts are highly NSFW, so if you’re doing your shopping on company time, do so at your own peril.
Peep the full line designs here.

Looks like it’s ficial. Thursday night (Sept.6th) Childish Gambino kicked f his “This Is America” tour in his hometown Atlanta at the city’s Infinite Energy Arena. While fans piled in to enjoy the show, Gambino made sure they left with a little something—no matter how devastating.

Second, if you’re in here, that means you bought a ticket. So, you don’t need to film this shit. Experience this shit. This is not a concert. This is fucking church. If you’re not here to celebrate life, if you’re not here to enjoy your time here, if you’re just here to hear your favorite song, you should go home right now and do that. I’m here to have an experience with y’all tonight, you feel me?”

The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan accidentally drowned in her bathtub, according to a coroner’s inquest that was released on September 6th.
O’Riordan was found dressed in pajamas and submerged in a bath at her London hotel on January 15th of this year.
Police didn’t find a note at the scene, and there was no evidence of self-harm. But several small bottles of alcohol were present. The coroner’s toxicology test showed O’Riordan had a blood alcohol level that was more than four times the legal driving limit.
The report also suggested “therapeutic” amounts of prescription medication were found in her system.
Coroner Shirley Radcliffe ruled the death an accidental drowning due to alcohol intoxication. Inquests are held to determine what happened in cases of violent or unexplained deaths.
“There’s no evidence that this was anything other than an accident.”
O’Riordan’s mental health problems have been well-known within the industry. Last year, The Cranberries cut their world tour short due to ‘back problems’ she reportedly faced. She also mentioned in a 2013 interview that she attempted to take her own life but stated, “I am meant to stay here for the kids.”
In other interviews, O’Riordan spoke about being molested as a child and the subsequent battles with depression. She also talked about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and how that affected her life and music.
The Cranberries formed at the end of the 1980s in Limerick before moving on to become international stars with songs like ‘Zombie’ and ‘Linger’.
Before her untimely passing, O’Riordan was in London for a recording session which would be followed by a tour. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar called her “the voice of a generation.”
