    Kimye faced a lot of ridicule this week when it came out that they named their newborn daughter ‘North West.’ Well, it looks like the high-profile pair has a supporter in the most unlikely of places. Vogue.com published an article written by sociologist Dalton Conley, in which he comes down in firm defense of the child’s unusual name. Dalton argues that the name isn’t that strange, considering celebrities often get creative when naming their offspring (as evidenced by Blue Ivy Carter, Jermajesty Jackson, Apple Martin, and the like). He also notes that since the 1960s, black folks have cultivated an affinity for unique names. After the black power movement, he says, they got more experimental with their children’s names as a way to “assert their individuality and break ties from the dominant society.” The tradition has since continued within the black community. Personally, I think the directional nature of the name is a little amusing, but North’s name doesn’t seem that weird to me, considering actor Jason Lee‘s son is named Pilot Inspektor. What do you think? (Vogue)




    Kate Upton‘s snagged another Vogue cover, this time for the glossy’s Brazil iteration. Though there is (sadly) less boobage here than we’re used to seeing on Ms. Upton, this is a pretty hot shot! What do you think? (E! Online)
