Khloe Kardashian is opening up about her love life with new boyfriend French Montana.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star, 30, spoke to Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez Thursday and revealed that during Ramadan, a month of fasting for the Muslim culture, which Montana follows, they have not been having sex.
Marinez pointed out that during the month, there’s “no eating, no drinking, no smoking … Wait. There’s no sex! How’s that been?”
Kardashian joked right back saying their relationship minus the intimacy has been “So fun. That’s why he’s wearing all white. He’s so pure and holy right now … He’s virginal.”
Kardashian also admitted she’s been “torturing him” during the holy month.
“I have been,” Kardashian said laughing. “Every single day, torture.”
As for French’s appearance on the show, Kardashian said fans will get to see him — a bit.
“I let him on, but I keep him a little private, you gotta keep, I’ve learned from my past, some things a little more private,” she said. “Gotta keep some things a little more close to my heart.”
Kardashian called the rapper one of “the funniest people I’ve ever met in my life. You cannot stop laughing, like crying laughing.”
“People are going to comment no matter what, if I dated like the most clean cut, perfect guy, they are going to comment,” Kardashian said about people saying Montana is going to end up hurting the newly divorced reality star. “That’s just the way it is, so if I’m having fun and I like this kid, no one else should care. They’re not f—— him. So why do they care?”
She added that while his reputation might be a little bit of a bad boy, “he can be a softy sometime” too.
“You can’t believe the hype,” she said
it’s not unusual for teenage girls to mimic celebrities’ red carpet looks for their own proms, but 16-year-old Alexis Carter went the nontraditional route for her Hollywood-themed school prom last week at Digital Harbor High School in Baltimore. Eschewing the traditional glam gown, Alexis wore a black jumpsuit with a plunging neckline inspired by a nearly identical green Alexandre Vauthier design her idol Rihanna wore to the Echo Awards in 2010. While the teen was confident enough to wear the out-of-the-box outfit, she could never have predicted the national attention her prom look would get.

Alexis’s junior prom started out according to plan. “The prom theme was Hollywood, and it was held at an old movie theater — it had a red carpet and everything,” Alexis tells Yahoo Shine. “I looked up Rihanna’s red carpet outfits for inspiration, and I loved all of them because her style is my style. I went with the green look, because I knew nobody would think of that.” After an exhaustive search, Alexis and her mother, Lakeisha Parker, found someone who could custom-make the striking design, which featured padded shoulders and oversized flowing sleeves connecting the arms and legs like wings. “When I got to prom everyone was like, ‘It’s cute, you killed it, I love it, you have a great body.’ So I decided to put a few photos up on Instagram and Twitter.”

Shortly after posting the pictures, Alexis couldn’t figure out why her Twitter account had so much activity. Apparently, one of her photos (which she has since taken down) had gone viral and spawned the unfortunate hashtag #PromBat. “Her brother, my 19-year old-son who accompanied her to the prom, started seeing people saying ‘Darkwing Duck,’ ‘She looks like a bat,’” Parker tells Shine. “I told her, ‘This is what critics do, just hold your head up and don’t stop being you.” But soon #PromBat became a trending topic and caught the attention of Rihanna herself.
Then, unbelievably, the singer tweeted out a composite “Who Wore It Best”-style photo of Alexis and herself wearing their jumpsuits and captioned it simply with an emoticon of a sad face. Then she tweeted yet another photo of the high-schooler alongside the Wu-Tang Clan’s lookalike logo (which was later retweeted by Busta Rhymes). Not surprisingly, Alexis was devastated.
“I started crying at first, and when it went viral I was so stressed out that I didn’t want to go to school,” Alexis says. “When Rihanna posted that photo it made it 10 times worse. The whole reason I wore [the jumpsuit] was because I love her. She was my motivation, and I was so shocked. She had to really think about it to make and post a picture about it. That’s overboard and tells me a lot about her. She’s nasty, and she really desecrated my name.” The teen’s question for the singer: “You’re a grown woman — why would you be doing that? You’re supposed to uplift them, not put them down.” Yahoo Shine reached out to Rihanna’s rep for comment, but has not yet heard back.
More than a week after her prom, people are still tweeting with the #PromBat hashtag. Alexis says her whole family has been called names, and she believes it’s her fault. “I didn’t ask for her to throw my name. I didn’t ask for people to interview me. I just wanted to post a picture up like every teenager would do at the prom. I’m not going to stop being different, and I can’t help what I love to wear, but I will never ever, ever go with one of Rihanna’s designs again. I was thinking about selling my prom outfit since I’m not going to wear it again, but then I thought I wouldn’t want to put anyone else through what I did.”
Rihanna has developed a bit of a reputation for fighting back against her Twitter followers. Below is just one incident that occurred in 2012:
At this point Alexis says a personal apology from Rihanna won’t help. “It’s not going to change what she did or what anybody said about me. I was her No. 1 fan, and now I’m not. I don’t want to meet her. I don’t want to go to her concerts.” Cater understands where her daugther’s coming from, adding, “What everyone fails to understand is this was her first junior prom, and she can never take this back.”
Flash back to 2006: There’s rapper E-40 holding on to his designer glasses on the cover of USA Today while explaining the Bay Area hyphy movement.“The music makes the kids go silly, go bananas, go coconuts, go stupid,” he said.In a word, hyphy was slang for “hyperactive” coined by Bay Area rapper Keak da Sneak. In a lyric, it was the hip-hop tale of “thizzin’” at shows (taking ecstasy in clubs) and midnight car shows (aka “sideshows”) — a narrative that had been building for at least a decade. In a movement, it gave underdog Nor-Cal rappers, often snubbed by commercial rap stations nationwide, the attention they finally deserved.And on the cover of USA Today, it was proof that hyphy had gone mainstream, landing in driveways all over suburban white America.By 2008, Bay Area alternative weeklies already were penning “The Demise of Hyphy” manifestos. Now, eight years later, even though the Hyphy Juice energy drink somehow survived, the sound is all played out.But E-40 keeps rolling, as prolific as ever (although his “40 Water” energy drink tapped out). He was around long before hyphy, selling tapes out of his car trunk in Vallejo. And he’ll be around long after its demise.Before the 46-year-old rapper rolls through the Phoenix Theater on Saturday night, here are the Top 5 things to know about E-40:
1. Born in Vallejo, Earl Stevens grew up on Magazine Street in the tough Hillside neighborhood, hanging with onetime rappers like Mac Dre and Stevens’ cousin, B-Legit. Here’s how he lived it, immortalized in the song “Hillside”:“Ridin through the turf, on MagazineYou know I stay strapped, with a magazinePut it to your face, like a magazineI stay on the case, cause I’m from Magazine.”In 2006, E-40 gathered with family and friends at Beverly Hills Park in the Hillside to barbecue and shoot a segment for MTV’s “My Block” series.
2. Unlike many others in Vallejo, he escaped the ghetto in the 1980s with his cousin B-Legit to study at Grambling State University in Louisiana. It wasn’t the typical career prerequisite for Bay Area rappers.But he did his homework. On his Facebook page, you can see a 1986 photo of his Grambling State dorm room, the walls plastered with Run DMC and Fat Boys posters.One night, E-40 and B-Legit turned heads at a campus talent show. They started making a name for themselves by rapping over records and tapes at parties.Soon, the band The Click was born as they teamed up with E-40’s brother D-Shot (Danell Stevens) and sister Suga-T (Tanina Stevens). Their first album, “Down and Dirty,” was recorded in 1992 at the same studio where M.C. Hammer recorded early albums.
3. The same guy who coined “Fo’ shizzle” and “You feel me?” now lives in the tony Danville subdivision of Blackhawk, rubbing elbows with neighbors like Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones Drew and Motley Crue singer Vince Neil.It’s a journey “from the ghetto streets to executive suites,” he says.But don’t think he’s out of touch with the streets. He still hangs in Vallejo — “the V” — where he was spotted last month picking up a to-go order of short ribs, mac ‘n’ cheese and greens at House of Soul.Every Christmas, E-40 takes part in a big toy drive. Last year, it was the Vallejo Salvation Army, where he dropped off bikes and handed over a $10,000 check: “When you need food, clothes, when times is hard, during hardship, this is the place to go, and they always extend their hand,” Stevens told TV channel KTVU. “The community comes together and they all pitch in.”
4. You’d think “Earl Stevens Selections” might be a retrospective box set or maybe a collection of deep cuts from his three-decade career. Think again. On store shelves, from the Food for Less in Vallejo to the Sunshine Market in St. Helena, “Earl Stevens Selections” is E-40’s new wine collection.
Never heard of Mangoscato? That’s because Stevens invented it. It’s sweet moscato wine with “flavors of ripe mango,” and “the 18 percent alcohol makes it all worthwhile.” As the budding vintner likes to say: “Bosses drink wine.”
Judging by the line wrapped around the Sacramento Costco for his “bottle signing” a few weeks ago, his fans agree.
Here’s a sample E-40 wine tasting: “From spitting in the bucket to clearing my mouth out with water so I could taste it again, all the flavors poked out,” he told Black Enterprise magazine.
As a celebrity winemaker, he’s entering familiar territory when you consider in 2009 he teamed up with the Lonely Island crew for a song that spoofs a sparkling wine by Carlos Santana — “Santana DVX.”
He’s also an investor in Bay Area Fatburger and Wingstop franchises.
5. Last December, E-40 released three albums, “Block Brochure: Welcome to the Soil — Parts 4, 5 and 6,” making for a total of 10 albums in the past three years. Yet an article on Bay Area hip-hop last month in Spin magazine points out that E-40 still remains “largely under-documented and underground.”As evidence, Spin points to the opening track of the 2002 album “Grit and Grind,” in which E-40 says, “They never put me on the cover of The Source!”
Now, 12 years and 15 E-40 albums later, he still hasn’t made the cover of the New York-based hip-hop magazine. Not that he’s counting. These days, he’s more interested in blending the old and new on his latest “Block Brochure” releases: “I just wanna keep it right in the pocket of what they been listening to with a new-school twist, but keep the old-school twist, too,” he told HipHopDX. “You feel me? So I want to make sure it’s the right recipe. When you dip your finger in that sauce, the seasoning is perfect.”

According to the rapper’s rep Domenick Nati, X has already been released from jail and this latest incident will not prevent the It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot creator from fulfilling his upcoming professional obligations. Nati issued the following statement:
DMX was released at 9:46pm Eastern Monday night. He was arrested on minor
traffic charges and spent only three hours in jail. This short arrest will not
affect any of his upcoming concerts and he is planning on performing with Swizz Beatz on Wednesday’s Wendy Williams Show.
