Today in celebrity gossip: A very tedious celebrity wedding had at least a few interesting aspects, Justin Bieber gave A LOT of money to charity, and Miley Cyrus possibly misses Liam Hemsworth.
Perhaps you've heard of the two celebrities named Kanye West and Kim Kardashian? The former is a talented rapper and producer who nearly single-handedly changed the direction of modern hip-hop over the last ten years. The latter is a curvy reality TV star with the cadence of a newborn koala. This past weekend they were married in a lavish, multi-million dollar ceremony in Florence where a media blackout was instituted solely to stoke media interest in their ceremony. Unfortunately this tactic badly overestimated how much people actually care about the marriage of Kanye West to Kim Kardashian, as the celebrity gossip marriage narrative is so beyond exhausted by this point that the world was collectively like, 'wake us for the divorce or murder-suicide coverage.' But anyway, they're married now and despite the endless reporting and impossibly banal details emerging from this non-spectacle, at least a handful of interesting nuggets HAVE popped out of it. Yes, these items are very schadenfreude-y, but they count! So here, for your reading pleasure, are eight things about the Kimye Wedding that could be considered mildly interesting!
• Vogue Editor and possible Kanye West blackmail victim Anna Wintour did not attend the wedding. A Vogue spokesperson gave the following explanation: "Anna had a longstanding family commitment this weekend and sadly had to miss the wedding." Sorry, Wedding of the Century. When Anna Wintour has "croquet?" lightly penciled into her day planner, there's just no canceling. [Page Six]
