In Buzzed, we take a look at three things that trended over the weekend while you were away from your keyboard getting buzzed.

On YouTube
At his show Saturday night, Kanye West went on rant slamming a trifecta of targets: the media, the Grammys, and Maroon 5. In a diatribe that landed on YouTube, he said he wasn’t “crazy” or “deranged” despite the media’s reports. He ragged on the Grammys for snubbing him this year for not including his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as a nominee for Album of the Year. “So don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year, you know what I mean?,” he told the crowd.

And then, Sunday night, Yeezy dropped the biggest bombshell at a show in Atlantic City, N.J., reportedly announcing Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy: “Can we make some noise for my baby mama right quick?” The news was seemingly confirmed by a chorus of tweets from the Kardashian clan.

On Twitter
A pregnant Jessica Simpson showed off her bulging stomach in a tweet Sunday that will be forever etched in your brain. Gripping her bejeweled (naturally) iPhone, she pursed her lips into duck formation (obviously) and wrote “Bumpin’ and Proud!” because sure.

On Intagram
Wearing the dumbest hat, Ryan Seacrest posted a picture on his Instagram account promoting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest (real name) with a snap of the new set. It would be neat if we dropped Seacrest in the middle of Times Square, but watching him read a teleprompter for four hours should be enough pain.
