For a minute Kim Kardashian seemed to be changing her outlook and privacy regarding her relationship and her love life. She has even told the mags since her relationship with rapper Kanye West became tabloid fodder, that Kanye has taught her the value of privacy.
Things sure seem to have changed however, since the cover of L 'Officiel Hommes, where the couple (who are expecting a baby girl in July!) were photographed in an explicit embrace. The picture has been circulating the web Monday and has the blogs and mags talking up a storm.
The racy image has a seemingly nude Kardashian, 32, looking as though she is in the throws of passion with West, 35, whose nude back is to the camera. The couple sure seems to not care about showing off for the cameras in this full on PDA cover photo.
Guess this is how baby Kimye was made!

The 18-time Grammy winner will take the stage with a lineup of three concerts on December 28th, 29th, and 30th, continuing his trend of choosing Revel as the place to stage his only solo US appearances and where he held two sold-out shows this past July.

When early December descends upon us, yes we remember that the holidays are just around the corner, but music and art lovers alike have their own little holiday to anticipate: Miami Art Basel. In 2011, there was a record attendance of 50,000 (up from 40,000 just one year earlier) so it's clear that the annual exhibition is flourishing. The roster of music fueled events that hit Miami each year are adding up and it's no surprise that a new music festival is in the works to correspond with Art Basel. Alex Omes and Emi Guerra of GO BIG Productions are adding yet another musical force to their agenda with the introduction of the first annual UR1 Music Festival in Miami.
UR1 will take place on December 8 and 9, in Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami.
As the world awaits “Cruel Summer," the collaborative album/short film feature from Kanye West’s record label G.O.O.D (Getting Out Our Dreams), their latest music video “Mercy” offers some insight as to what audiences can expect. Directed by Nabil Elderkin, a longtime friend and collaborator of West’s, “Mercy’s” visual accompaniment is an ode to minimalist art. From the horizontal stripes and steps that run the length of the Qatar parking lot to the negative space angles created by each posed rapper---this is an anti-rap video. It gives audiences a glimpse of what's been inspiring Kanye West as of late (middle-eastern culture), while eschewing the ennui rap motifs of bouncing cars, video hoes, and flying money. The monochromatic color scheme and wide frame transforms the otherwise ordinary space into a minimalist work of art worthy of the MoMA.
"Tomahawk Technique", Sean Paul's fifth studio album has been internationally chart-topping on the other side of the pond since January, peaking at #3 in Switzerland. With its September debut on the horizon in the U.S. the dancehall legend recently stated in an interview with Billboard magazine, that he wanted to take a breath before re-introducing himself to his beloved western fans. Ditching his signature braids for a modern Mohawk and velvet rope aesthetic, Sean Paul's new album seeks to revolutionize reggae and dancehall in exchange for a wider audience. Despite his past success and a sizable following, prior to "Tomahawk Technique" Sean Paul had somewhat of a niche appeal, mainly attracting devout fans of Reggae/Dancehall while influencing hip-hop circles.
Kim Kardashian wore a very fashion forward dress and had to confim Tuesday she was not wearing spanx. The dress had curiously placed sheer panels on the side, revealing what many assumed to be shapewear.
To dispell rumors, Kim took to her site to explain: "I wore this gorgeous polka dot Stella McCartney dress out yesterday and I've seen some publications saying I'm flashing my Spanx or control underwear underneath the dress...but that's exactly how I bought it with those nude panels inside. So no Spanx here! Stella made a full collection with these sheer panels on the side, and this is how my dress came!"
