Kanye West is NOT A CELEBRITY so we shouldn’t even be talking about this, but apparently Kanye is scheduling a tour for his upcoming album in October and word has it that Kim Kardashian is going to take her newly born moneylump and follow him. From TMZ:
There are reports Kim felt like Kanye was abandoning her by scheduling a tour for his new album in October — just three months after she’s expected to give birth — but sources close to the touring company tell us, that’s not true … because Kim and the baby are coming along for the ride.
And she’s not messing around either — we’re told the touring company has already been given orders to arrange for cribs and soundproof hotel rooms at every stop.
Ball so hard.
Hope your bus can float, Kim, because you know he’s hitting up all of Europe. He’ll probably go to Antarctica if it can buy him more time away from you and your childrearing plan. Not that it isn’t a great idea to bring a newly born baby on a tour bus for months.

Courtney Stodden says she made a sex tape, and thankfully it’s not with Some Dude From Lost. No, this tape is all Stodden. “Tape.” It’s probably a digital recording, although she swears no one can “hack” it. I’ll just let her speak in her own darling words. From Eonline:
Hackers, don’t even go there cause you’ll find nothing.
YEAH HACKERS, DON’T EVEN. Justo to reiterate, her husband/Some Dude From Lost is NOT in the video. She says,
[It's] just me. I don’t want to put any images in people’s mind; I’m gonna leave it up to you guys to think what you want.
Thank you, Courtney! So kind of you. She says she’s not going to release it (“no, this is personal”) and that it was recently done because, “I turned 18 in August, so you do the math.”
Ms. Stodden also said she hasn’t submitted any nude photos to Playboy yet, as though they’re waiting on baited breath. I think they’re probably too intimidated by her naked shoot for Girls And Corpses magazine to take her on, because how could they do better? Once you elevate something, you gotta keep it rising.
So enjoy these photos of Ms. Stodden from “a fashion show in West Hollywood.”

BFFs and “wifeys” Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne did a video for a new version of Rita’s ‘Facemelt’, which opens her debut album. It was directed by Rankin, who’s famous in the fashion industry and the music industry and everyone’s famous and fashion is everywhere and oh man, I really need a nap. I just don’t know what to make of this video because it doesn’t seem to have a point. The song is an interlude at best, so this can’t be a single. I know it’s for Rankin’s Hunger TV website, but… why? So many questions, so few answers.
Anyway, watch the video above and to make it up to you, here’s a picture of Milo:

If there’s one thing Rihanna cares about in this world, it’s weed. No, wait, it’s Chris Brown. No, it’s fashion! Especially when it comes to her image being used on shirts and shit without her permission. Doing so might just cost Topshop $5 million, if Rihanna’s lawsuit against them is successful.
From The New York Post:
A source exclusively tells us the superstar’s team had tried to negotiate with Topshop owners Arcadia Group for eight months over the rights to her image, “but they offered her $5,000 and said they don’t care.”
Rihanna, 25, has hired international law firm Reed Smith to file the suit in London.
The source said, “Rihanna’s management asked Topshop a number of times to stop selling her image and were told, ‘We do what we want.’ They buy the pictures from a photographer, but they do not pay the artist licensing fees. Unfortunately, UK law does not protect the artist.
“What is most offensive for Rihanna is that they basically told her, ‘Go to hell. We don’t care; we are going to continue selling you.’ Topshop is now in the United States. They set up in Manhattan and Nordstrom, but they know better than to do this in the US because they would get in trouble,” our source continued.
“Even though the UK laws don’t protect the artist, she has decided to move forward and sue Topshop. She has spent almost $1 million in litigation at this point. She says it’s the principle, and wants to make a statement about it. They are taking advantage of artists. It is just exploitation. What they are doing is wrong.”
We’re told the case is now in discovery. Rihanna has handed over details of her fashion deals with Armani and River Island, a competitor to Topshop in the UK.
A Topshop source told us: “This issue is related to a T-shirt provided to Topshop by a third-party supplier. We are aware it is the subject of litigation. [There are] public documents” available for inspection in the London court.
The source added, “The amount of damages sought has not been articulated anywhere in the claimant’s document.”
To be fair here, while it’s frivolous and Rihanna certainly doesn’t need the money, this is sort of a matter of principle, she’s right. If someone stuck my image on a t-shirt as a celebrity and was profiting off it and I wasn’t seeing a dime, I’d be litigious as hell and get my lawyers phoned up real quick. Whether or not Topshop will actually have to pay up is a whole other issue.

Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber are both Canadian, so I guess that means they have an unbreakable bond. Plus, Justin took Carly on tour and now they’re BFFs or something. Either way, Carly has felt the need to speak out in support of Baby Elvis and defend his good name from those who have called him out for the asshole he is.
From E! News:
“All I see is an incredibly hard worker and a man who’s just passionate about what he does,” she told E! News in response to the Bieb’s bad press. “Just putting it on himself to take on a lot all at once,” she added, hinting that Justin’s life in the spotlight would be tough for any 19-year-old to handle.
Still, the “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” singer has nothing but respect for the chart-topping star, and she hopes to emulate his incredibly hard work ethic.
“I think if anything I’m inspired by how hard he works, and I definitely want to add that to my own mantra as just like working really hard and doing my thing.”
Oh, shut up, Carly Rae Jepsen. Your 15 minutes is over, anyway, and ‘Call Me Maybe’ makes me want to kill myself now, so just fade back into obscurity and resurface in 2023 when VH1 wants to do some retrospective on hits of the 2010′s.

I’ve always been a bit confused by Daniel Radcliffe. He’s obviously a chill bro who’s pretty comfortable with himself – or so it seems – and yet he continues to insist that he’s not gay, which rings… untrue to me. I’m not here to out anyone or tell someone how to identify themselves sexually, just saying that he’s always struck me as a lover of The D, so my brain goes a little haywire thinking about him with a lady. For someone so straight, he sure talks about (not) being gay a lot, though. And also, he needed “step-by-step” instructions from Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas when shooting a gay sex scene as Allen Ginsberg in the film. Okay, let’s go with that:
“I was doing a gay sex scene and the director was giving step-by-step instructions. And the favorite note I have ever had was when we were kissing and the director shouted, ‘Not like that. Crazy sex kissing!’
“I spent ten years in a kids’ franchise and that was definitely a moment of, ‘Yes, I think I’m moving on‘.”
Well, listen, unless you stay in the genre of children’s book adaptations, I assume you won’t be “expecto patronum”-ing your way through the rest of your film career. Plus, you did Equus on Broadway and got your ding dong out for the world to see, so I doubt this is all that new.
Anyhoo, Kill Your Darlings makes me want to kill my eyesballs – I have zero interest whatsoever in seeing it and I feel like this project has been in the works for 800 years. Will it ever come out? Will anyone care?
