KIDCHELLA!

EXCLUSIVE

North West Birthday PartyNorth West celebrated her 1st birthday with a pint-sized Coachella bash ... complete with multiple stages for various performers, glow sticks and moccasins ... you get the references, right?

The shindig -- which Kim Kardashian and Kanye West called Kidchella -- was held in Kourtney Kardashian's backyard and it was filled with festival-goers.

Guests were greeted with tie-dyed wrist bands and then roamed the grounds where they entered various booths -- set up like teepees -- and were treated to hair-braiding, face-painting, tie-dyed T-shirts and bandanas. 

But wait ... there's more. The 2 stages featured performances by Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner.

And there were Churro stands, snow cones and cotton candy machines.

As for the party favors -- custom Yeezus T-Shirts.

It definitely beats Chuck E. Cheese.

North West Travels Without Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian
's 1-year-old baby is a full-on baller, flying 1st class from NYC to L.A. with nannies, an assistant, Kanye's aunt, a nurse and a security guard ... then whisked off the plane by Delta personnel and escorted home in a chauffeur-driven Porsche Panamera waiting for her on the tarmac.

North West did not fly with her mom or dad.  Kanye was in France and flew to Miami.  Kim flew to New York with North but then left for France for a day ... so mom and daughter flew back home separately.

And no Ubers for North.  She rolled up to JFK in Kanye's Maserati and was greeted by her people.

Sure beats Chuck E. Cheese.

Annie Leibovitz

Hey Kanye, No Problemo

You Trashed Me!

EXCLUSIVE

Annie Leibovitz Kanye West Attack
Annie Leibovitz
has decided to address Kanye West's attack on her ... problem is, she wussed out.

You'll recall Kanye trashed Annie for bailing on shooting their wedding right before the vows.  Kanye said she was just "afraid of celebrity."  A weird comment, since Annie has become world famous for shooting celebs.

So ... Annie's just sent us a long, rambling statement which also contains comments from Kanye -- and it never directly addresses the "afraid of celebrity" comment.

The rep says Kanye was frustrated he couldn't "collaborate with Annie" but he's not blaming her for bailing .... even though his comment sure sounds like blame.

The rep says, "Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed."  Annie's rep adds, "she would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn't happen."

And get this ... the statement says Annie is responsible for shooting Kim and Kanye's Vogue cover, but she's "not known to shoot weddings."  It sounds like she wasn't really into doing it in the first place."

And get this BJ ... Kanye says, "The most-liked Instagram photo of all time, shot by Annie Leibovitz.  Oh, I'm sorry for dreaming out loud.  Again."

TRASHES Leibovitz

Over Wedding Photo

Kanye West Disses Annie Leibovitz
Kanye West says famed photographer Annie Leibovitz practically RUINED his honeymoon with Kim Kardashian ... because they had to spend days fixing the now-famous floral wall wedding pic.

Annie was supposed to shoot the pic but she pulled out entirely the day before the wedding.  Kanye says she claimed she was "afraid of celebrity" -- a weird statement because Annie's brand is all about celebrity.

Nonetheless ... the pic was taken but not perfected, and Kanye says he and Kim spent 4 days -- yes, 4 DAYS -- screwing with the pic because the flowers were "off color."

Kanye -- speaking at a conference in Cannes -- says the extra work pissed off Kim during their honeymoon, saying ... "She was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much."

The photo ended up being the most popular pic ever on Instagram -- almost 2 million likes and 35,000 comments.

Screw Kanye's Bonnaroo Gig

Check Out My Boobs!

0614-kim-k-boobs-bonaroo-instagram-01Kanye West may have been the headliner at Bonnaroo Friday night in Tennessee ... but Kim Kardashian's mom boobs totally stole the show.

Kanye returned to the annual festival last night with his new bride in tow -- and Mrs. West's rack was proudly on display while 80k people watched Yeezus perform.

According to reports ... Kanye stuck to his normal schtick during the gig -- ranting about how he wants to become a timeless icon like Walt Disney and Shakespeare.

With boobs like that, Kim might beat him to it.

Topless Kim Wedding Painting

Wasn't Our Idea

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian Topless PaintingKim Kardashian and Kanye West's egos DO know a limit, after all -- TMZ has learned they are disavowing any knowledge of a partially nude painting of Kim ... allegedly commissioned for their wedding.

A report from across the pond this week said Kanye had contacted a street artist named Bambi to do a thong-baring painting of Kim entitled "Perfect Bitch" -- which, by the way, looks nothing like her in the face. Bambi nailed the ass though.

But sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... neither of them know ANYTHING about this -- no painting was ever ordered, nor does Kim want one. This should sound familiar ... another artist, Monica Warhol, claimed the same thing last year. 

We spoke to Bambi's manager, who's standing by Bambi's story and claims Kim's people should be receiving the artwork any day now. 

Look for it in a garbage bin outside their home.

The Kimye wedding/honeymoon international tour stretched across Paris, Florence, Ireland and even Prague.

Lana Del Rey Sang Kim Kardashian WeddingLana Del Rey shot down the ridiculous rumor she scored an insane pay day for singing at Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West ... telling TMZ she did it for nothing.

One report had Lana's fee at a whopping $2.8 million ... but this afternoon at LAX, a very friendly Del Rey told our photog she didn't receive a dime.

Lana also explains WHY she performed gratis, and the good news is -- there's a slim chance she could do the same for you.

Really slim.

Kim just posted a couple of pics from the big event -- including a shot from the moment Kanye was told, "You may kiss the bride" ... and it was closed mouths all the way. 

Mrs. West also posted a pic of the happy couple walking down the aisle after tying the knot -- with baby North looking on.

Mini Kim and Mini Kanye tied the knot at Beacher's Madhouse Saturday at the MGM Grand in Vegas.

Kanye, Bruce, Scott Disick and other family members took private jets.  The pics (above) show the groom's party jet.  The chicks have a separate plane.

Regular guests -- like Kim's longtime friend Simon Huck -- jumped on board what looks like a charter 737 ... and legendary record producer Rick Rubin was on the flight.

The wedding is set at Fort Belvedere -- a 400-year-old landmark in Florence.  We're told there's another big bash Sunday.
