#SocialGathering: Kanye West vs. Jay Z; Ryan Reynolds Reveals Gender of Second Child

Kanye West’s Ether
Kanye West is really mad this time, and he’s directing his anger toward former BFF Jay Z. At West's concert in Seattle, the rapper broke the news that there would “never be a Watch the Throne 2,” referring to a proposed follow-up to the duo's joint album. West also called Jay Z's streaming app “Tidal Apple Bullshit” not once, but two times, eluding to royalty problems from the duo's joint Tidal deal. Fighting words, basically. But Jay Z is no stranger to this sort of drama. The rapper famously battled with Nas, which birthed some of the greatest songs in hip-hop ("Ether," "The World Is Yours," "Dead Presidents"). (It's worth pointing out that, since 2000, West has produced and made beats on Jay Z’s biggest hits — gaining insider knowledge of Jay Z's songmaking process, gaining a slight advantage that Nas never had.) West wrapped up his rant by telling the crowd his daughter, North West, and Jay Z's daughter, Blue Ivy, have never played together (serious, ouch). If true, that could be particularly rough for West, since he produced " '03 Bonnie & Clyde" featuring Beyonce — the root of the trio’s relationship to begin with.
Nothin’ But an HRC Thing
Speaking of hip-hop, Twitter users are having a field day over @double_cupp_me’s viral tweet. Ralph Lauren made all of Hillary Clinton’s debate power suits, so it’s pretty unlikely the designer was inspired by Death Row Records. Unless Clinton's showing some "California Love"?

Ryan Reynolds, Father of Two Girls?
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively haven’t revealed the gender of their second child officially, and he's keeping us guessing. Big daddy Reynolds tweeted about his "daughter's crib," but added a joke about birth control, which left us wondering what he was talking about. The power couple have a 22-month-old who could still theoretically sleep in a crib, so the real question is this: Why did Reynolds reveal his wife’s birth-control method on social media? Hopefully he clarifies all with another one-liner soon.
The mobile above my daughter's crib is just a whole bunch of NuvaRings. So she remembers how lucky she is.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) October 20, 2016
New Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s plans for the fashion house involve dressing women other than actresses. Italian Olympic fencer Beatrice Vio is the first to wear a Dior gown from the designer’s debut collection. The bronze medalist posted a selfie with President Barack Obama at the White House state dinner for Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Afterward, Vio posted a photo of her returning the items at Dior captioned ‘Operazione Cenerentola,’ translation: Operation Cinderella. No word if she met her Prince Charming at the dinner.
