We all know Kanye West always has something to say.  Now word has it, he's gearing up to drop a vinyl album of poetry.  Supposedly, Yeezy will speak on topics about his Boo Kim Kardashian, baby girl North, the environment, etc.

A source told The Sun Kanye West is, “ forever recording his opinions on tape.”  The Sun’s source added Kanye may even try and take a page out of Pharrell’s book, but instead of  a 24-hour music video, releasing speeches for download.

For now fans will remain at a “wait-and-see” to see if this will materialize.  In the meantime, word also has it, Kanye is hard at work on the follow-up to his 2013′s Yeezus album as well.  By the way, Ye’s tour DJ ‘Million Dollar Mano’ tweeted earlier this month that Kanye’s next solo project will have a different sound.

Finally, Rihanna was named in a lawsuit filed recently in Dublin, Ireland's High Court for allegedly defaming her former bodyguard, Geoffrey Keating.  The Irish Times reports Keating worked as Rih Rih's head of security while she was on tour between October 2012 and July 2013 and he claims that the singer defamed him by sending verbally abusive and explicit emails to him, his wife and in a conversation with his sister.

For now the details of these convos are currently not being disclosed, Keating's legal camp described the language to be "nauseatingly offensive”.
