Ever since Kanye West has completed his album cycle, he has been on a world tour, flying commercial and popping up while seemingly trying to stay as low-key as possible. Last week, he was spotted in Venice, Italy, where he kept his 2021 mask-wearing streak alive.

Kanye West was across the pond to perform at the star-studded wedding for Tiffany exec Alexandre Arnault. During the reception, he performed a melody of hits from “Runaway” to his latest offerings, liike, “Come To Life.” Even during the wedding, he kept his mask on, sporting an all-black face covering.

While he was overseas, a Los Angeles County judge approved for Kanye to change his name to just “Ye” without a first or last name. In 2018, during an interview with Big Boy, Kanye revealed that “Ye” is the most commonly used word in the bible and simply means “you”.

After the announcement of the name change, Kanye was seen sporting a new, questionable haircut by paparazzi in Sweden, and as the internet reacted, he took to Instagram to debut the new look.

Many have suggested if you look at the cut, you can see the his name ‘Ye’ spelled out, but, to be honest, we’re not sure if that’s true. Either way, Kanye seems to be having the time of his life and the haircut is mostly an after thought as his latest halloween inspired masks are getting all the shine while he is out and about.

Take a look below to see a glimpse of the masks Ye has been rocking as of late.

The news never ceases to surprise us…

As a platform that aims to bring awareness to a variety of different stories in the news, we’ve come across some crazy s*** in our day. However, this is one that we’ve never seen before much less even considered as a legit possibility. But here we are…

According to a story in the NYPost, a woman who performs as a webcam girl shot herself in the vagina during an insanely stupid sex stunt. Far be it from us to rebuke the phrase, “do somethin’ strange for a lil’ piece of change” but everything has limits. 27-year-old Lauren Hunter Daman was hauled off in an ambulance after negligently discharging a firearm while using it during a live sex show. An Upson County Sheriff wrote a report that was published by The Smoking Gun.

Per the report, Allen said “Daman has ‘subscribers’ on a sexual web platform called ‘Chatter’ where people pay to see her make sexual videos.” He believes “she was recording” one of said kinky clips “when the gun went off.”

Although the report lists the website as “Chatter” it is actually the popular cam site called Chaturbate. Daman was helicoptered to a local hospital and was discharged last week.

Talk about a freak…accident.

Omicron cases start to climb as WHO warns the variant poses a ‘high infection risk’

Politics Insider for Nov. 30, 2021: New cases in Canada; a military apology; and Steven Guilbeault’s bicycle

More cases in Canada: Two people in Ontario and one in Quebec have been infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19, CBC reports, in addition to the two Ottawa cases announced on Sunday. Patricia Treble, writing for Maclean’s, has a roundup of what we know now. Cases are being detected daily around the world, CNN reports.

High risk: The World Health Organization warned Monday that the variant poses a “high infection risk,” the BBC reports: “Omicron has an unprecedented number of spike mutations, some of which are concerning for their potential impact on the trajectory of the pandemic,” the WHO said.

Alarm bells: In the Globe, André Picard explains that it is too soon to know whether Omicron is more dangerous than earlier variants.

Despite its ominous moniker – Omicron, the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet, sounds like the name of a bad guy in a superhero movie – it’s not a given that the newest variant will be dramatically worse than previous ones, nor that it will displace Delta, the now-dominant variant. The reason Omicron has scientists worried is its “Frankenstein mix” of mutations. Viruses mutate, but usually do so fairly slowly. The new variant has set off alarm bells because it has 32 mutations on its spike protein alone. The spike protein is what coronaviruses use to enter human cells, so that raises fears (at least theoretically) that Omicron could spread more easily and circumvent immune protections, both those from infection and vaccination. But none of this is clear yet.

Reluctant Ontario: In the Star, Bruce Arthur argues that Doug Ford’s government should ponder the uncertainty and get more serious.

Israel moved hard on ventilation, contact tracing, boosters, and border restrictions, because Israel knows an emergency when it sees one. If Omicron is a real leap — and many virologists say its 25 to 30 mutations are at least hypothetically suited to potential immunity evasion, transmission and virulence — then the rules of the game will change. Some would likely stay the same, too. This government has set certain boundaries at this point which will influence the vulnerability to whatever Omicron or any other variant might be. It’s a broken record at this point, but this government has been truly reluctant to push vaccination from the premier on down. The result is about 1.4 million unvaccinated Ontarians over the age of 12, including some 350,000 over the age of 50. Every one is a walking alarm bell.

Why only Africa? The Globe has an opinion piece from U of T prof Ambarish Chandra, who argues that our travel restrictions are poorly thought out.

The speed with which the latest travel bans have been imposed on southern African countries suggests yet again that Canada is quick to impose harsh measures on the developing world but reluctant to do so with wealthy, Western countries. Multiple reports suggest that the Omicron variant was already present in Belgium and the Netherlands at the time these bans were imposed, but there is no discussion of extending measures to those countries.

Not vaccine apartheid: In the PostRupa Subramanya argues that vaccine hesitancy and logistical problems, not access to vaccines, are behind slow uptake in the global south.

There is no doubt that the purchasing power of rich countries makes it easier for them to procure vaccines, yet it is not true that poorer countries don’t have access to vaccines, as they can purchase them at concessional rates from the pharmaceutical companies, or draw from the World Health Organization’s COVAX facility. Rather than a lack of access, much of the disparity in vaccination rates in the developing world results from logistical problems and vaccine hesitancy, sometimes coupled with outright COVID-19 denial.

Conversion therapy ban: The Liberals tabled a bill Monday to ban conversion therapy, and not just for children, the Star reports.

The bill goes beyond the government’s previous attempt at a ban on conversion therapy. Bill C-4 would make it a crime to make anyone undergo conversion therapy, regardless if they consent. That was a key demand from survivors and advocates, who said the government’s previous attempt at a ban, Bill C-6, still allowed for conversion therapy to be provided to adults who consented. Advocates have said a person cannot consent to what amounts to fraud and torture.

Minister, CDS to apologize: Defence Minister Anita Anand, deputy minister Jody Thomas, and Chief of the Defence Staff Gen. Wayne Eyre will apologize to victims of military sexual misconduct on Dec. 13, CTV reports.

“As part of our efforts to restore relationships with those harmed, we will offer a public apology to all current and former members of the Defence Team who have been affected by sexual assault and sexual misconduct, including harassment, and discrimination, “ the release states.

A prop bike? Conservative MP Ed Fast accused Steven Guilbeault of using a bicycle as a prop during a session of hybrid Parliament on Monday, CTV reports.

Fast raised a point of order following question period, arguing that Minister Steven Guilbeault hung the bike behind him to “make a statement about his environmental cred.” “Mr. Speaker, the point is, there’s a rule that you cannot do indirectly what you cannot do directly. What the minister has done is blatantly use a prop because he’s now doing it from the safety of some other office,” Fast said.

Guilbeault responded on Twitter: “The bike has been there long before we started doing virtual Parliament. In fact, it has also been there for months as I was taking questions as heritage minister. Strange that after almost a year, it’s become an issue,” he said.

In a related story, the deputy speaker warned MPs appearing from home to keep their garb professional, CP reports, but he didn’t say anything about bikes.

Tech tax: The Liberal government intends to proceed with plans to implement a digital services tax targeting tech giants, the Post reports. Critics in the business community think the government should wait for an international agreement before acting.

Nomination survey: Some Conservatives think a membership survey is laying the groundwork so that Erin O’Toole can centralize the nomination process, the Hill Times reports.

Confront dissidents! Also in the Hill Times, former CPC MP Tom Lukiwski argues that O’Toole should call a leadership review so that he can silence internal critics.

Still fighting: Green Party officials are still engaged in a damaging internal feud, CBC reports.

Syrup to flow: The people behind Quebec’s strategic reserve of maple syrup said Monday they will release 50 million pounds of maple syrup–worth about $150 million–onto the market by February, responding to rising international demand, CP reports.

Rihanna was awarded the honor of Barbados National Hero on Tuesday, after the island nation ousted Queen Elizabeth II and declared itself an independent republic.

The pop singer was honored in her birthplace of Bridgetown, Barbados by Prime Minister Mia Mottley who referenced her 2012 song “Diamonds” during the ceremony.

“On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you the designee for national hero for Barbados, Ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty,” Prime Minister Mia Mottley said.

“May you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation.”

Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles (far right), attended the ceremony, as the Queen was unable to travel due to recent health issues.

He said slavery was an “appalling atrocity which forever stains our history.”

Britain played a prominent role in enslaving Africans, many of whom were dropped off on the island nation on the way to North America.

On Tuesday the queen sent a congratulatory message to the country’s new president, Sandra Mason (4th from right), who was sworn in at midnight.

“I first visited your beautiful country on the eve of independence in early 1966, and I am very pleased that my son is with you today,” the British monarch said. She added that Barbadians had long “held a special place in my heart.”

Rihanna, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has held the title of Ambassador for Culture and Youth in Barbados since 2018. The island’s residents continue to celebrate February 22 as “Rihanna Day.”

The 33-year-old singer is semi-retired from music and focuses on growing her billion-dollar makeup and fashion empire.
