CLEVELAND — 'Yeezy' is making it's way to a retail store in a new collab, Billy Porter is celebrating Pride Month and his BET award nomination, and how Andy Cohen is taking over his Sirius XM to celebrate LGBTQ+ history. 

Kanye West is at it again with a new and head-turning partnership. 

West announced Friday morning that his popular clothing company and brand 'yeezy' is collaborating with multi-billion dollar retail company GAP and production will begin soon on a new line. 

After the announcement, GAP's stocks reportedly saw as much as a 31% increase. 

The announcement may seem somewhat random to many, but tried and true fans of West will know that one of his songs off his debut album, 'The College Dropout' was all about his experience working at the GAP in his teenage years.

Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter this morning to congratulate her beau on the news and called the partnership his 'dream come true.'

Congrats Kanye. 

Speaking of 'dreams coming true,' Grammy and Tony winner Billy Porter told Entertainment Tonight that following his 2019 Emmy win for 'Pose,' doors have opened up like never before. 

Porter told ET 'as a Black queer man, it has changed my life completely. There is a power that comes with it. There is a respect that comes with it. Doors open that otherwise would not.' 

Since his win, Porter has accepted roles in 'Like a Boss,' CBS's 'The Twilight Zone,' and the upcoming Cinderella remake starring Camila Cabello. 

As for right now, however, Porter is quarantining at home in New York with his husband Adam, and taking part in as many online June 'Pride' events as he can.

Meanwhile, Andy Cohen is hosting his own 'Pride' events and is starting on Sirius XM radio. 

The 'Watch What Happens Live' host is going commercial-free this weekend to celebrate the five-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling gay marriage is legal. 

The channel will feature guest hosts including Jim Parsons, Barry Manilow, Paris Hilton, Adam Rippon, and Kristen Chenoweth throughout the weekend playing nonstop acceptance anthems. 

The station will play hits from Lady Gaga, George Michael, Elton John and many more. 

The pop-up channel launched at 5:00 p.m. eastern on Friday and will go through 8:00 p.m. on Sunday.
