Kanye is launching a makeup line! And Shia shuts down his protest camera, while Cheryl and Liam confirm they’re expecting! Get the details in today’s Dirty Laundry.
Kanye West is getting his own makeup line? Yup!! DONDA (named after his mom) brand makeup, perfumes, lotions, and other cosmetics is what he’ll be releasing. That means he’ll be going against his sister in law Kylie Jenner who has a very successful makeup line.
And check out the gold statue of Kanye as a crucified Jesus in LA… 7 feet tall, nails through the palms, gold-painted body, and a medallion around its face, while branding a pair of Yeezy shoes… The street artist Plastic Jesus created the piece titled “False Idol”… it’s to criticize the way we idolize Kim Kardashian’s husband: “He’s a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him. Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him… We’ve seen it before with people like Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan. The same people who put him into a God-like place are the same yapping at his heels for a piece of flesh when something happens. The piece is intended to be as critical of us as consumers and the media as it is of Kanye himself. We’ve created this idol from somebody who is clearly talented.”
The Kylie Cosmetics highlighter is about to be released on February 28 at 3pm.

Shia LaBeouf’s Trump protest webcam in New Mexico has been shut down again… not because someone spray painted it but now it’s because gunshots were reported nearby. Shia tweeted, “We have taken the stream down after shots were reported in the area. The safety of everybody participating in our project is paramount.” No one was in front of the camera at that time anyway. As of 6:50 AM PT… the camera is still down. It’s unclear when they’ll flip the switch again
