We love a good Kanye line and on Tuesday night, the rapper gave us just that.

Yeezy took to the social media website to reveal how many albums he sold and that very number is why he is not “regular.” After tweeting that his latest LP, The Life of Pablo “did 250 million,” the rapper explained that he is “tired of people old talking to me like I’m regular.”

Tidal announced on Tuesday that The Life of Pablo streamed 250 million times globally in its first 10 days of its release. “It’s a really good number, and it’s even more impressive that it’s only in one place,” said David Bakula, senior vice president of insight at Nielsen Music. “There’s a lot of services that can stream audio, but there’s only place where you get this album and that’s Tidal. That’s how it differentiates itself.”

Leading up to the release of the album, Ye started becoming very active on social media. From Twitter rants to Twitter feuds, Ye appeared to be positioning himself for the ultimate publicity ahead of the project. But according t of Bakula, the numbers come down to one main thing: Talent. “Kanye being outspoken and being Kanye helps get it there, but it doesn’t make it without being a quality album,” he said.

We aren’t going to lie … The Life of Pablo has been on constant rotation in the office.

Congrats, Kanye.

    I don’t believe he moved 250 million albums. Sorry if that were true that would be the talk of the industry since rappers aren’t moving those types of numbers not even Kanye. And wasn’t it reported that Tidal wasn’t trying to tell how many albums he sold. 250 million people signed up for Tidal and he sold 250 million albums. LIES

Rihanna Admits To Having A “Fluctuating Body Type” — And This Is How She Deals With It

Published

Earlier this year, rumors were running rampant that Rihanna was pregnant. It became quickly evident that the singer was not carrying, but we are now learning that the apparent weight gain might’ve have ben due to fluctuation.

During an interview with The Cut, Badgalriri suggested she has a “fluctuating body type,” but that she’s learned how to dress for the variations. “I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversized,” she said while promoting her new Fenty x Puma line.

She added, “I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”

The singer went on to explain that because people’s bodies are constantly changing, fashion should not be mundane. “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning,” she explained. “I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing.”

She continued, “And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?”

The fashion designer added, “I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”

Rihanna is not just a fashionista, but she is also wildly confident in every garment she rocks. Confidence is major for the singer, who expressed to the fashion outlet that it’s men in black who rule dressing with confidence.

Yes. This is new for me; this is recent. I love a man in black,” she explained. “It’s so sexy and mysterious; confident and secure—all the things I love about a man. So, I’m into that.”

Ri celebrated the launch of her new line just last week. Click here to see photos.
