What will Kanye do to you if you aren't super enthusiastic about Yeezus? Well, we always assumed there would be murder involved, but we never knew it would be quite like this. In honor of his latest masterpiece, Mr. Kardashian went full-on crazy for a short-film parody of the clasically f'ed-up American Psycho. Except this time, instead of a subtly psychotic and thoroughly manic Christian Bale, you'll enjoy a twitchy, not-so-subtle Scott Disick as the inimitable Patrick Bateman. In addition to his unofficial brother-in-law (Disick is dating Kourtney Kardashian), West also tapped his friend Jonathan Cheban to play the unlucky victim.
So, do you agree that Kanye, much like Huey Lewis and the News, has really come into his own, commercially and artistically? And with a new album and a baby daughter to take care of, will Kanye ever be able to get a reservation at Dorsia? So many questions. At any rate, Mr. West would like this to serve as your reminder that he is cool and hip and makes parodies and watches critically acclaimed films.

Now that Lindsay Lohan's stint as a reality-TV star has come to a grim end, it's time for her to lighten things up a bit. Instead of making another misguided attempt at movie stardom and winding up in one more film like The Canyons, it may be more productive for LiLo to start small. Like, real small. So, we made a list of read
