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

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy

Published

Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
