Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A dozen roses and breakfast in bed weren't going to cut it for Kanye West's pride, joy, and co-parent to North West, Kim Kardashian. The rapper sent "a couple thousand" white roses to fill Kim's suite in São Paulo, then sent a string quartet to play the sweet, sweet tunes of Sam Smith throughout dinner. And, of course, every dish delivered to Kim's table came with a waiter reciting, "This is from Mr. West for the best mother in the world."
