Kanye West Bailed on “Carpool Karaoke” Twice
Kanye West doesn’t seem to have the temperament to do “Carpool Karaoke” with James Corden, but apparently he is interested. Just not that interested. Corden says Kanye has been lined up to do it twice, and canceled both times, but he thinks it’ll happen. Quote, “He’ll do it eventually. He wants to do it, “[When he cancelled, he sent] about three dozen white roses, of course . . . arranged in the shape of a cube. What could be more Kanye than that?” That is Kanye’s thing. He gave Taylor Swift a bigger cube of white roses, and he’s also given them to Kim Kardashian. So unless Corden is joking about this, it looks like he’s in Kanye’s good graces. For now. By the way, Corden says the #1 person on his wish list is: Beyonce. She’s on tour right now, but he says they’re “working on it.” Get more here. Speaking of Kanye…

And IKEA’s response is, no. They said, quote, “Although we are really flattered by Kanye West’s high interest in IKEA and the speculation around a joint venture, we have no plans to collaborate at this point in time.” Ouch.

Will was promoting Suicide Squad during his appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. But that’s not all, the best part of the interview happened off the air. During the commercial break, Will got up, grabbed a mic, and busted out his 1991 hit “Summertime.” The audience seems far too young to appreciate the magnificence of the song, but we loved it.

Vanilla Ice Lost His Cool After He Forgot to Board an Airplane
Vanilla Ice was at Atlanta International Airport on Monday, and his plane boarded without him, even though he says he was sitting right at the gate. They closed the door, and the plane left. Ice was furious when he found out, and he flipped out on a Delta attendant. There’s a video online, where he yells, quote, “I was sitting right here, no called me, no one said final call, nothing! You didn’t even say anything.” Another traveler butts in and says, “You gotta watch the monitor, man.” Ice didn’t appreciate that. He says, quote, “Hey, I don’t need any information from you, man. Shut your [effing] mouth, you don’t work here. Shut up.” The woman who uploaded the video says Ice was talking on his phone the whole time the plane was boarding. And he didn’t go to the counter until about 10 minutes after the door closed. It’s unclear how it got resolved, but he did miss the flight. Yesterday, Ice Tweeted, quote, “How funny, ‘Vanilla Ice has a meltdown.’ More like over caffeinated, and no sleep. Wrong actions but right point.” Get more here.
