As you may have heard, Kanye West debuted his new album, The Life of Pablo, at Madison Square Garden last night, and - as is pretty much always the case when Kanye's involved - the evening was not without its share of controversy.

Most of the morning-after negative press has centered around lyrics in which Kanye West calls Taylor Swift a "b-tch." Reps for Swift have expressed their distaste for the song's "misogynistic message," but Taylor herself has thus far kept it classy, as always. Fortunately, she has friends who are willing to go attack dog for her.


Ruby Rose is certainly one of the more badass members of the Swift Squad, and she went off on Yeezy in epic fashion on Twitter last night:

"Too many lines crossed," she tweeted about Kanye. "If I put myself in the shoes of the women he has hurt recently. Victims of Bill Cosby, The Slut shaming, Amber...

"And now my dear friend Taylor.. Right before another huge moment for her.. Can I still support him and call myself a feminist? A friend? No."

Yes, it wasn't just Kanye's bizarre comment about Swift that Rose took issue with, but also his recent attacks on Amber Rose and baffling claim that Bill Cosby is innocent.

When Yeezy stans came out of the woodwork claiming that Rose was essentially putting words in Swift's mouth, the Aussie model revealed that she had firsthand knowledge of how Taylor reacted to the song:

"I was talking to Taylor last night," Ruby tweeted. "I wouldn't comment on something before doing due diligence."

Other friends of Swift's such as Gigi Hadid and Jamie King came to her defense but no one went in as hard as Ms. Rose. Everyone should have a friend like Ruby.

When you think of Kim Kardashian, you think of an ass. And we're not just talking about her behavior.

Obviously, we're referring to her gigantic derriere, pics of which she shares so on the regular that they're getting pretty old at this point.

Baby sister Kylie Jenner has followed suit, and we are now overly familiar with DAT ass.

But eldest sis Kourtney Kardashian? We really haven't seen the likes of her booty much around these parts as the mom of three has, for the most part, kept it klassy.

UNTIL NOW.

Yep, Kourtney has jumped on the ass wagon by sharing a close up photo of her rump to Instagram.

Her bum is covered in beads from the outfit she wore to brother-in-law Kanye West's Yeezy fashion show - a number designed by 'Ye himself (with the help of Balmain).

We wonder if Kourt questioned her outfit choice upon sitting down - a thousand tiny beads digging into your ass sounds almost as delightful as a deep tissue massage by Edward Scissorhands.

Funnily enough, sister Kylie posted a very similar pic yesterday, complete with bits of butt flesh peeking through the, um, fabric?

Kourtney has been taking more corporeal risks lately. She recently posed nude in photos for a fine art gallery, and ironically, during the shoot she confessed she felt insecure about her behind.

"We need to plump it up," she told the photographer.

Looks like Kourt's ass esteem has risen exponentially.

Although we admire Kourtney's newfound confidence and love that she's having fun, honestly, we really don't need another sister turning into Kim.

We've already lost hope for Kylie, and the LAST thing the world needs is three Kim Kardashians.

It's fashion week, which brings the industry's biggest names to New York City, like Milania Giudice and Vanna White.

While that was happening, Kanye West debuted his third collection at Madison Square Garden and raised hell via Twitter after listeners took offense to some of the tracks off his new album, The Life of Pablo (previously titled Waves, previously-previously titled Swish).

Remember when Fashion Week was about wearing big sunglasses while you stalked the front row across the runway pretending to be oogling the clothes, when really you just wanted to be near Jessica Simpson?

Yeah, those days are gone.

Check out what other stars were up to in the photos below.

Bill Murray is adored the world over as a comedic legend and loveable curmudgeon, but we know of three fans who are likely not amused by his recent behavior.

While attending a party at a Carmel, Calif. restaurant thrown by Justin Timberlake, Murray reportedly snapped when fans began taking photos of him with their cell phones, according to Gossip Cop.

Fed up with the invasion of privacy, the actor grabbed the phones and chucked them off the restaurant's second floor rooftop. 

This sounds exactly like something his prima donna character in Groundhog Day might do. But we haven't heard news of a sequel.

Police arrived shortly after hearing about the incident, but Murray had already left the restaurant.

However, a police spokeswoman confirmed that two of the phones were damaged, and that the movie star agreed to pay for them.

It's no secret that the highest price of fame is privacy and we've seen celebs go off on paparazzi many times. However, it's rare that we see one actually lash out at fans.

We're not sure what got Mr. Bill so fired up last night. Surely he's used to fans snapping photos of him, and he reportedly did very well in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament that day.

The star played alongside other stars like Timberlake, Ray Romano, Andy Garcia and Kenny G in the tournament.

Murray isn't really a total stranger to kooky behavior, but next time we hope he sticks to photobombing engagement pics and bad dancing to Lil Jon.

While many celebs were attending Kanye West's fashion show and album reveal in New York, Yeezy's friend Beyonce was glamming it up with Mariah Carey at the HeartView Global Foundation benefit in LA.

The gal pals were positively glowing in a photo Mariah posted to Twitter, who tweeted, "Two girls, one cause."

Bey slayed in a white gown adorned with a shoulder-hugging cape and Mariah rocked a nude-colored, sparkly lace dress that flaunted her famous curves.

And yes, you can catch a glimpse of Mariah's much-talked about 35 carat engagement ring, which may or may not have required its own seat at the benefit.

Both ladies have had quite the year so far.

Beyonce made many a headline early in the week when she basically won the Super Bowl with her jaw-dropping halftime performance of "Formation" (even though a few bellyachers had to be total sour pusses about it).

Three weeks ago, Mariah got engaged to billionaire James Packer, who presented her with the aforementioned diamond boulder that's likely giving her left bicep muscles a killer workout.

The HeartView Global Foundation aims to combat heart disease by promoting a heart-healthy, plant-based diet. Both Beyonce and Mariah have both followed vegetarian/vegan diets in the past.
