Kanye West claimed he’s made “marriage cool again” during his long-awaited first appearance in a special edition of James Corden’s popular “Carpool Karaoke.”

The 42-year-old rapper made history as the first-ever guest to perform and be interviewed by Cordon while on a plane for “Airpool Karaoke.” West’s debut on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” comes after his new album “Jesus is King” dropped last Friday.

“People thought it would be uncool to get married and then I got married and then people went, ‘Oh that looks cool,'” West told Corden. 

Corden clearly amused replied, “No one ever thought it would be uncool to marry Kim Kardashian, everybody thought it would be cool to marry Kim Kardashian!” 

To which West responded: “Well, not Kris Humphries.” 

Kardashian was married to NBA player Humphries for just 72 days in 2010 before she filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” CBS called it “the most expensive, short-lived wedding in history” with her 72-day-marriage costing a reported $10 million.

“It’s more than cool as hell, it’s heavenly, it’s great, it’s magnificent and God is using me as a human being as humbly as I can put it he’s using me to show off,” West continued about his influence on marriage. 

The rapper who’s been married to Kardashian for five years now also discussed his theory on marriage, comparing “marriage years” to “dog years.”

“Every marriage is like 100 years, so like I’ve had 500 years of marriage,” said West. 

Of his evening routine at home, West said: “I don’t like going out at night time, I like being at home with my family at night as much as possible.”

West explained after putting the kids to bed, Kardashian watches “Dateline” while he “sits down and reads the Bible.”

He then went on to say he and Kardashian have discussed the possibility of having up to seven children. The couple currently have four children: North West (6), Saint West (3), Chicago West(1) and Psalm West (5 months). 

During the airborne chat, the duo was joined by the entirety of West’s “Sunday Service” 100-person choir with the group randomly performing a medley of songs from his new album.

Fans would also recognize a stylized version of “Jesus Walks” from his 2004 album, “College Dropout.”

Gina Rodriguez apologizes for singing N-word lyric – CTV News

Gina Rodriguez apologizes for singing N-word lyric – CTV News

NEW YORK — Gina Rodriguez has apologized for singing along on her Instagram story to a Fugees verse that includes the N-word.

The “Jane the Virgin” actress deleted the short video she posted Tuesday and replaced it with her apology, but not before memes and other backlash ensued. Rodriguez said in her apology she’s a longtime Fugees and Lauryn Hill fan and didn’t mean to offend anyone.

She sang along to “Ready or Not” and recited the racial slur as she sat in a makeup chair.

Some of the outrage focused on remarks Rodriguez made last year during a panel discussion. She said black women in Hollywood are paid more than Latina women. Detractors at the time noted the highest paid TV actress in the world that year was Sofia Vergara, from Colombia.

10 things in tech you need to know today

10 things in tech you need to know today

Good morning! This is the tech news you need to know this Wednesday.

  1. Facebook announced a new digital currency called Libra, which will let anyone send or receive money via their phones while paying zero or low fees. There is considerable uncertainty about how such a currency will work, but Facebook says it is targeted at the 1.7 billion people who don’t have a bank account.
  2. Facebook has set up its own subsidiary, Calibra, which will provide Libra payment services. Calibra will start as a digital wallet app that also integrates into WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, and will eventually branch out into other services.
  3. France’s finance minister was among the first to voice his misgivings over Libra, saying it must not be allowed to become a “sovereign currency.” Politicians in Germany, Italy, and the US also voiced concern, with one saying Facebook could become a “shadow bank.”
  4. Chinese tech company Huawei has estimated the US blacklist will impact its revenue by $30 billion. CEO and founder Ren Zhengfei said the firm was expecting revenue of $100 billion this year and next, down from target growth of between $125 billion to $130 billion.
  5. Pokemon Go creator Niantic has made its second ever UK acquisition, buying British game studio Sensible Object. Sensible Object’s CEO, Alex Fleetwood, told Business Insider that the studio would become Niantic London and build new games like Pokemon Go on Niantic’s augmented reality gaming platform.
  6. Microsoft has resumed sales of its existing stock of Huawei laptops on its online store. Once the stock runs out, customers won’t be able to buy Huawei laptops until something changes in the US government’s decision to blacklist Huawei from doing business with US companies.
  7. The CEO of parenting benefits startup Cleo has resigned after Forbes and a subsequent internal investigation discovered she had lied about her age and CV. Shannon Spanhake resigned from the startup after the investigations, and after former employees complained of a brutal work culture.
  8. Alphabet’s Google on Tuesday announced an additional $1 billion investment in housing across the San Francisco Bay Area. Google said over the next 10 years, it would repurpose at least $750 million of its land, most of which is currently zoned for office or commercial space, as residential housing.
  9. Major advertisers, publishers, and platforms including Facebook, GroupM, and P&G announced a global alliance to improve digital safety. The immediate focus of the Global Alliance for Responsible Media is to create a working group to prioritize concrete steps to begin creating actions, processes and protocols for protecting people and brands from nefarious content online.
  10. YouTube launched a new augmented reality feature that allows a viewer to virtually try on makeup while watching beauty tutorials on the site. The tool is currently in alpha and uses a split screen, with the video playing on the top half and AR filters showing on the bottom half.
