A stellar couple in a stellar game! 39-year-old Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, 42, surprised fans when they showed up in Chicago for the NBAll Star Game on February 16. The duo looked as glamorous as ever, with Kim rocking in a fiery solid orange ensemble to fight off the winter chill. She wore a brass puffer jacket with orange leather pants and a tight-fitting mustard-colored strapless top at the bottom. She paired this look with brown boots and her signature natural-toned look and lipstick to complement the outfit. Kanye donned a black blazer with a bright red shirt underneath and printed denim pants. He also wore sneakers and lots of silver chains around his neck - oh, and of course his signature black sunglasses.
As we sat on the playing field, the camera looked at a couple on a large screen. She first showed Kim smiling and kissing for the camera, then turned to her husband and pursed her lips in preparation for the moment of their big kiss. But … Kanye completely ignored her! The video then focused on the rapper staring into the camera and then smiling broadly - a pretty rare sight when it comes to Kanye West! Kim then decided to take matters into her own hands. When the camera showed both of them, it became clear that her husband was not going to kiss her, so she bent down and kissed Kanye on the cheek. It's embarrassing! Earlier in the day, the couple received a warm welcome in the city when Kim shared an Instagram story of fans lining up in the streets and shouting their names as they aired Kanye's Sunday Service special held at Credit 1 Arena. The rapper grew up in this city, so it was definitely a warm welcome!
On the eve of the big game Jennifer Hudson appeared at the Joint Center to pay tribute to the deceased Kobe Bryant, his 13 year old daughter Gianne and seven others killed in a helicopter crash that claimed their lives. In front of the crowd, Jennifer (a Chicago native) put on an exhilarating performance that engulfed the grief, pain and heartache that filled the hearts of every basketball fan after Kobe's death. Jennifer sang "For Everyone We Know" on a giant screen showing highlights from Kobe's life and career. “For everyone we know, we may never meet again / Before you leave, make this moment sweet again. We will not say, "Good night"; until the last minute / I will stretch out my hand and my heart will be with him."
