Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, also known as the unstoppable publicity machine called Kimye, released their newest creation to the masses Tuesday on Ellen. West swaggered onto the daytime talk show to premiere his new music video for "Bound 2," which also serves as an instructional clip on how not to ride a motorcycle. While the sunsets and horses are nice, the video's standout feature is Kardashian. The bare, blond and buxom reality star is shown body-rolling her way across West's chopper, and in turn, onto everyone's social feeds.

During a year where the news cycle was also dominated by "twerking" (the runner-up"), "KimYe," and "cronut," "selfie" has taken on all comers to become the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2013.
A "selfie" is any picture taken of oneself by oneself, usually for posting on social media. Its first recorded usage was apparently in an Australian internet forum on September 13, 2002. "Sorry about the focus," the post – detailing a drunken injury – read, "it was a selfie." And just like that, history was made.

There's just something about Beyoncé that inspires people.
A few days after her single "Get Me Bodied" soundtracked an emotional operating-room dance party, the pop star once again warmed hearts all over the globe this weekend when she let a legally blind fan sing with her during a concert in Australia.
At the Perth stop of her The Mrs. Carter Show world tour, Beyoncé picked 13-year-old Sophie Kotkis out of the crowd and let her sing the famous hook to the 2006 hit "Irreplaceable": "To the left, to the left."

In a week that saw Saturday Night Live come under the microscope of The New York Times for the program's lack of diversity, specifically where black women cast members were concerned, the show cold-opened Saturday night with a skit starring guest host Kerry Washington, satirizing the situation – and even culminating with a pre-"Live from New York, It's Saturday Night" announcement from the Rev. Al Sharpton.
"What have we learned from this sketch?" Sharpton said, speaking directly to the camera. "As usual, nothing."
In the course of the sketch, the Scandal star played Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey (rather broadly) but drew the line when the name Beyoncé came up.
But the relevant topic was touched upon head on, although mock-seriously.

Usher isn't afraid to cough up dough for charity.
The singer bid $80,000 on a Richard Avedon photograph at the Gabrielle's Angel Foundation Angel Ball in New York City on Tuesday night. But unfortunately for him, that wasn't enough!
Celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, who designed Kim Kardashian's engagement sparkler, outbid the hit maker and forked over $85,000 for the piece.
And it was all for a good cause. Money from the auction will help fund cancer research, and celebs all came out to support the foundation.

Now you see them, now you don't!
Beyoncé got into a playful mood with daughter Blue Ivy, and she was game – literally – to share the precious moment with fans.
The superstar mom, 32, posted a photo on her Tumblr page that showed her indulging in some peekaboo with her 1-year-old.
In the adorable snapshot, the duo can be seen hiding behind what appears to be a hammock, their eyes just barely peeping out above the top.

Blue Ivy Carter is only 18 months old, but it's already clear she's got her father's taste in music.
Jay-Z, 43, says he recently started playing his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, around the house and it's a bona fide hit with his daughter.
"She loves all the songs," he tells Vanity Fair in its November cover story. "She plays a song and she goes, 'More, Daddy, more ... Daddy song.' She’s my biggest fan."
