Rumor Has It ...
Remember a couple of weeks ago when we saw those photos of Madonna chillin’ in Haiti with her ex-husband (and true love of her life) Sean Penn and I wondered aloud where Maddy‘s younger boyfriend Brahim Zaibat was? Well, I guess that question is now a moot point because according to Gossip Cop, Madonna and Brahim have broken off their three year relationship. At this point, there is no official confirmation from the couple about this reported split nor do we know a reason for the break-up but considering the source’s excellent reputation of truth in reporting, I’m willing to believe the claim that Maddy and Brahim are dunzo.

"‘I realised it was finished for good in 2008"
Back in August of 2012 the Spice Girls reunited for a stellar performance during the Closing Ceremonies of Summer Olympics in London, England and at the time, there was renewed talk that the girl group might get back together for a reunion tour … or something. Even back then, tho, it didn’t seem like Victoria Beckham would be interested in reuniting with her fellow Spice Girls ever again. Today we get confirmation that she is out. In an new interview, Vicki B. reveals the moment when she realized that she was done with being a Spice and makes it painfully clear that she is forever done with being in the Spice Girls group.

Peace the Spork Out
And so … the end of an era has come and gone. Last night at 10 PM ET, the music site turntable.fm shut down completely for good. Some of you might remember that I spent quite a LOT of time playing around on Turntable a couple of years ago when the site had newly launched. Occasional usage turned into bona fide obsession as I would spend hours on the site for weeks on end playing music as a virtual DJ (I even lived a short time as Deadmau5) with friends and strangers who would eventually become friends themselves. For various reasons, I didn’t spend much time on the site in the past year or so but I would pop in from time to time to say hello to my online friends who hung out there daily. I learned a few days ago that Turntable was shutting down for good and, well, I had to go back to play a couple of songs and say my goodbyes before the site went away forever. More »

Just Don't Do It
Earlier this year it was announced that Kanye West was planning to collaborate with Nike on the creation of a pair of shoes that would, it was hoped, set the shoe game on fire. Kanye previously collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a line of expensive sneakers and enjoyed success there so it was assumed that this new collab with Nike would be, at the very least, just as successful. Then Kanye started bad-mouthing Nike publicly in concert and rumors started to circulate suggesting that Kanye was planning to dump Nike and collaborate with a different shoe company. Last night, in a radio interview, Kanye confirmed that he is no longer working with Nike because he signed a deal with adidas. More »
"It might not have been the best decision."
Last month we learned that Jessica Lange is leaving American Horror Story after season 4 next year and today we learn exactly why she made the decision to leave the series. From the start, Lange has been an integral part of AHS‘s success and I, personally, fall more and more in love with her with each new episode she appears in. Entertainment Weekly magazine, which is showcasing the current season AHS: Coven on their cover this week, spoke with Lange about her decision to leave the show … click below to read what she had to say.

BUT, it will be rebooted in Las Vegas in 2015
Remember when we got all excited/worried that Julie Taymor signed on to direct a Broadway musical based on the adventures of Spider-Man but things started to go terribly wrong when players were getting injured so severely in previews that they had to quit the production and the show had to go dark for a week so that it could be revamped? Then Taymor got fired and the show re-opened and finally found box office success (and, thankfully, no more injuries)? Yeah, well, the Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark story is about to come to a close. Due to declining ticket sales, the show will close on Broadway in January. Plans are in the works to adapt the stage production for Las Vegas, where producers feel the show can find new life … but Spider-Man‘s time on the Great White Way is about to come to a final end.

"... for now"
Earlier this month the Jonas Brothers appeared in Out magazine to promote their planned new album and tour. Today we learn that plans for the band of brothers have changed because the Jonas Brothers as a band have decided to break-up. The guys went on a hiatus a few years ago so that they could each do their own thing but decided that this year, they’d get back together and make music together again. Shortly before they were due to kick off their new tour, something went down that resulted in an entire cancellation of the tour and today’s announcement that the band is dunzo. Yeah, things don’t sound great in the Jonas family these days. More »

The Couple Has Separated After Six Years Together
Ugh, this is the worst. My beloved fashion/lifestyle guru Miranda Kerr is officially separated from her husband, actor Orlando Bloom. Such bummer news, right? I’d heard whisperings about the possibility of divorce a little while back, and was really hoping that the rumors were untrue. Since then, we’ve seen photos of the two at a few events, but apparently it’s totally over and they’ve been living apart for the past few months. Click inside for more.
Lange Is Retiring from Acting Altogether :(
Very sad news for fans of the FX series American Horror Story and, in particular, of actress Jessica Lange … because today we learn that Jessica has decided she is leaving the series at the end of AHS season 4 (which will likely air next year). Furthermore, Lange takes things one step further by announcing that she is ending her acting career altogether. In a new interview with the LA Times, Jessica talks about the current season of American Horror Story: Coven and drops the bombshell that she is planning to end her acting career with one more season of the show. Boo. Without question, Lange is one of the most talented actresses on television today. It will be a very sad day when she says goodbye to acting altogether :( More »
An amicable split after 5 years
Very sad news to pass along today … Aussie pop queen Kylie Minogue and her Spanish model boyfriend Andrés Velencoso have reportedly ended their relationship of 5 years. Ugh. Kylie and Andrés have been thru a lot together and I always thought that they were someday make it down the aisle. I guess after 5 years, they decided that marriage just wasn’t in the cards for them. It is being reported that the split was amicable so that’s of some comfort but I can’t help but be bummed out majorly by news of their split :( More »
