EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#YEEZY: Kanye West is releasing his new album, modestly entitled Yeezus, next week. And he has said some things to the New York Times. Some crazy, crazy things.

He started off by revealing his mastery of statistics:

I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age.

And then: did you think Steve Jobs was the Steve Jobs of the internet? You’re wrong, pal. Kanye is the Steve Jobs of the internet.

I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump.

How come, Kanye?

I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.

Ah. (New York Times)

#SWAG SWAG SWAG: Justin Bieber has been putting his awkward teenage moves on Miley Cyrus. (TMZ)

He was spotted at an LA club laying down his finest ‘I’ve lost my number, can I have yours’ on poor Miley (who was probably just thinking about twerking at the time) – which prompted this headline from TMZ:

The answer: almost certainly not. But Miley! Just in case you’re thinking about it, allow us to remind you that Justin Bieber is a dope:

#PRINCE HAZ-MAT: Carrot-topped playboy Prince Harry is reportedly in the process of severing ties with his on-off girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

Perhaps because the Queen decreed that nobody with an amusingly dirty-sounding name can be in the Royal Family. (No matter how much it would amuse Prince Philip.)

Anyway, Harry is now being linked to model Cara Delevingne after putting moves on her at a party. The ever-reliable ‘source’ told Look magazine:

Harry and Cara [...] spent the whole afternoon only talking to each other. The theme for the [party] was Hollywood Westerns. Cara kept stealing Harry’s cowboy hat and teasing him about his boots. He seemed to love it and obviously thought she was hilarious.

(Celeb Dirty Laundry)

We’ll just say this: if Cara wants to hang with Harry’s folks, she’s going to have to stop Instagramming photos of her boobs.


And the rest of the day’s dirt…

  • Halle Berry is having the world’s most attractive baby boy. (ET)
  • Caprice is having two babies at once, from two different wombs. (Mail Online)
  • Harry Styles has got a tattoo of the lyrics from Careless Whisper. (The Sun)
  • Which may be a consequence of the fact that One Direction have been smoking some odd-looking cigarettes. (Mirror)
  • Farrah Abraham… enjoys… her own sex tape. (NYDN)
