Kanye ‘specific about wedding’

Kanye West is reportedly grappling to assert is "authority" with regards to his upcoming wedding.

The rapper proposed to reality TV star Kim Kardashian in October last year and they will marry in France in May, according to reports this week.

Despite being notoriously private, Kanye has backed down and will let Keeping Up with the Kardashians' cameras in on their big day, but he's apparently determined to stay in control.

"Kanye knew that having their ceremony on the show means a lot to Kim," a source told British magazine Star.

"That's why he got down on one knee on camera. He relented to having their wedding filmed, too, but he wants to maintain some authority. He's very specific in his visions and wants to inject a high-fashion style, as he wanted them to get married in Paris."

Recent reports suggested Kanye even wanted control over the kind of dress Kim, 33, wears on the big day.

This, coupled with input from her mother Kris Jenner, is said to be leaving the brunette feeling very pushed out.

"It's left Kim feeling like she has no say," the insider explained.

"As the bride she should be excited about making her own preparations, but it's becoming more about Kanye and Kris' egos. She's got a groomzilla to deal with, as well as a demanding mother of the bride.

"Kanye is already feeling suffocated as he and Kim are living at Kris' house while theirs is renovated. But now Kris is encroaching on the wedding, too, it's making him even more determined to do it his own way."

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
