Some stars twerk and tongue-waggle their way to the top, others let their work and amazing gif-able dance skills help them ascend the celebrity ladder. Wild or subdued, almost every famous person has a moment – or several – where they do something so over-the-top the whole word has to stop and go, "Wow!"

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.

Talk about a joyride.
Kanye West didn't have to look far for a costar to ride shotgun with him in the music video for his new song "Bound 2": fiancé Kim Kardashian, who helps turn up the heat in the road-trip-themed clip.
In the video, which the rapper debuted Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, West, 36, and Kardashian, 33, hop on a motorcycle together while vistas of landscapes and all sorts of natural scenery whiz by behind them.

"I really do believe the world can be saved through design," said West, in a video from his lecture that was posted on Facebook.

North West is growing up fast.
And her mom, Kim Kardashian, is keen on sharing her progress, posting a new photo of her daughter, seated on a green sofa, on Instagram Tuesday with a very simple caption: "LOL."
Since North's birth in June, Kardashian, 33, has offered up only a few glimpses of her sweet daughter, who turns 5-months old on Friday – far fewer than the sexy selfies the reality and fashion star has been fond of posting to social media to show off her successful post-baby weight loss.

Kanye West, who is currently suing a co-founder of YouTube, has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft in a case filed over a scuffle with a celebrity photographer earlier this year.
Attorney Blair Berk entered the plea on the rapper's behalf Thursday in a Los Angeles court. West was charged with two misdemeanors in September over a July altercation with paparazzo Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles International Airport.
Prosecutors declined to file felony charges against West, but decided to pursue the misdemeanors. Each carries a penalty of up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.
