• The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Stacey Dash Says Kanye West Should Go To Rikers, Eileen Ford of Ford Models Has Passed, and Janice Dickinson Apologizes To Tyra Banks

    • In likely one of the rare moves to top a Kanye rant, Stacey Dash took to Fox News to say that the rapper should go to Rikers Island, insinuating that he should be raped, to be able to make the statement he made at the Wireless Festival in London this past weekend (Kanye said likened paparazzi stalking to rape). The Clueless actress offered, “For Kanye to say’rape,’ maybe he needs to spend some time on Rikers Island. Go to Rikers for a while and then he’ll know what rape is,” She continued, “I don’t get celebrities not understanding that the paparazzi are doing their job.” Her suggestion for dealing with the paps? Be nice. She said, “If you’re nice, if you’re polite to them, they leave you alone…It’s when you start to call them names and act crazy and put your hands up and do all this drama that they make it a big deal.” (Page Six)
