Kim Kardashian Talks Sex Toys With Jennifer Lawrence

What happens when actress Jennifer Lawrence interviews reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian? The conversation leads to sex toys. At least that’s what happened recently when J-Law was a guest-host on Jimmy Kimmel Live! She interviewed Kim about KKW, her popular make-up line, which Allure says has beauty mavens buzzing for it’s interesting packaging. Referencing the shape of the product, Jennifer said, “It wasn’t exactly the flesh color that made me think it was a dildo.

Kim Kardashian West responds to Aaliyah costume racism criticism

Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian West spent most of her Halloween week dressing up as some of the biggest names in music, from being the Cher to BFF Jonathan Cheban’s Sonny, to channelling singer Selena Quintanilla in her iconic purple jumpsuit.

But the costume that caused the biggest stir on social media was Kim’s decision to dress up as the late R&B singer Aaliyah, using the outfit the singer wore in her ‘Try Again’ video as her inspiration.

Reaction to the costume was pretty much split directly into ‘Kim Kardashian can’t dress up as Aaliyah, she’s an icon’ and ‘At least Kim brought attention to Aaliyah again’, but when a few labelled the costume as racist and offensive, Kim defended her decision in an update on her website.

“When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah,” she wrote (via Billboard).

“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend. I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone.

“When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire. I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists.”

Kim also then pointed out that she loved her joint costume with sister Kourtney this year too, where the duo dressed as Michael Jackson and Madonna at the 1991 Academy Awards.

“We don’t see [colour] in my home,” she continued. “We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect— it’s that simple!”

Aaliyah was best known as a singer and actress before she tragically died in 2001 along with eight others in a plane crash in the Bahamas.

The song behind Kim’s inspiration,’Try Again’, was recorded in 2000 for the Romeo Must Die soundtrack, and you can watch the original video right here:

Kim Kardashian Apologizes For Offensive Aaliyah Costume

Kim Kardashian’s apologizing for her most controversial Halloween costume.

This year, Kardashian outdid herself, earning the title of Queen of Halloween with the many extravagant costumes she wore. Over the span of five days, the star stepped out in four costumes inspired by her favorite music icons of all time — legends Cher, Madonna, Selena Quintanilla and Aaliyah. But the Internet was not pleased to see Kardashian channeling the late ’90s R&B singer, accusing her of being insensitive or offensive with her choice of costume. “Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not,” wrote one Twitter user.

Though the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star didn’t respond at the time about her decision to wear the crystal choker, bejeweled bra and black pants the R&B legend wore in her “Try Again” video, today Kardashian opened up on her app – and apologized to those who were hurt by it.

“When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah,” Kardashian wrote on her website. “The look was inspired by what she wore in her ‘Try Again’ music video. I wore a custom bra top and J Brand leather pants. Ariel Tejada did my makeup and Chris Appleton did my hair.

“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend. I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone,” the star said.

Kardashian compared dressing up as Aaliyah to her older sister Kourtney Kardashian, who dressed as African American pop legend Michael Jackson, and her son Saint, who channeled Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose this year.

“For me, it’s always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose,” she said. “We don’t see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect— it’s that simple!”

Scott Disick Is Sad, Jealous Of Kourtney’s Happiness

Kim Kardashian was shocked to see how many women Scott Disick was spotted with at Cannes in May. In a sneak peek of Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kourtney Kardashian‘s ex sat down with Kim to discuss the drama. Disick said, “Look at it in my perspective. She was on vacation with one man, a whole trip. That looks like a happier scenario than me, jumping around, trying to find happiness and these girls are not fulfilling that.

Jennifer Lawrence Grills Idol Kim Kardashian on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

Jennifer Lawrence relished her role as guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, deep-diving into an interview with her “utter obsession, our Lord Jesus God,” Kim Kardashian.

The self-professed Kardashian super fan kicked off the night with a punchy monologue that tackled everything from the Hollywood wage gap (“It was an honor to be asked to fill in for Jimmy tonight. I was so excited to do this; I even told the producers, ‘I don’t even want any money for this.’ And they said, ‘No, Jennifer, we insist on paying you … 29 percent less than the male guest hosts.'”) to fans’ utter unfamiliarity with her work (a Billy on the Street-esque game, “Name Five of Jennifer Lawrence’s Movies,” fell flat with strangers on Hollywood Boulevard.)

And when it came time for Lawrence to chat with Kardashian, she kept the funny cranked up to high as she tackled some pretty wild topics with much aplomb.

“Do you think it’s a coincidence that Reggie Bush’s wife looks just like you?” Lawrence began the interview, referring to one of Kardashian’s famous exes, NFL player Reggie Bush. “I don’t.” (To be fair, Bush’s wife Lilit Avagyan is a dead ringer for Kardashian.)

Kardashian laughed off the comment, but didn’t shy away from Lawrence’s other probing questions.

“So do you and Kanye fart in front of each other?” Lawrence asked at one point. “Do you talk about farts? Like, do you fart in front of him?”

The reality star responded with a coy smile, “I don’t fart. What are you talking about?”

At another point in the chat, Lawrence asked Kardashian whether she thought she might be able to save the world with her amateur hacking skills. (Kardashian confessed to hacking into her friends’ boyfriends’ voicemails back in the day to dig up any incriminating dirt).

“So do you think that you could, like, hack a president’s Twitter and maybe, like, start a war?” Lawrence asked. “Like, you could save the world?” Instead of directly answering the question, Kardashian took a slight detour and remembered a game that her family had played at mom Kris Jenner’s house, asking each other who they would rather sleep with of the world’s leaders, Donald Trump or Kim Jun Un.

“I think we were just laughing so hard we didn’t choose,” Kardashian said.

But perhaps the highlight of the interview was when Kardashian and Lawrence recalled a recent dinner party at Jenner’s home, during which guest Lawrence proceeded to get sloshed and wound up naked in a closet.

“I’ve never seen my mom more drunk in our lives,” Kardashian said of seeing Jenner and Lawrence dancing arm in arm after many margaritas. “It was so funny.”

Lawrence confessed that she just wanted to get a makeover from Kardashian and West. Kardashian admitted to remembering the request – but slightly differently.

“You said, ‘I’m not joking. I really want Kanye to style me, and so I said, ‘OK,'” Kardashian said. “I come back in and you’re fully butt naked. I said, ‘Umm, I’m going to intercom down and tell [Kanye] not to come up.'”
