Battle of the rappers! Pharrell and Will.i.am just can’t seem to get along ... and now he's suing the Black Eyed Peas rapper in what's becoming a pretty nasty trademark war which now involves Dr. Seuss. Pharrell recently launched a YouTube channel called I Am Other and he’s angry that Will.i.am is trying to block him from using the name because according to Pharrell, Will.i.am. has already sent him a cease and desist letter informing him that he owns the rights to all things with an "I Am" element. So Will.i.am warned Pharrell to back down or else. Pharrell decided to go court and sue. Pharrell argues that they are each using "I Am" in completely different ways. So far, no comment from Will.i.am's team. Can’t we all just get along?
What to get the man who has everything? Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend Kanye West is sharing the unique Father's Day gift that she bought him. He tweeted: "One of the other gifts my girl gave me for fathers day," along with a photograph of two Apple computer mice signed by the company's founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Kanye West has shared his hopes of one day becoming as influential as Steve Jobs. He explained: "I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump." Don’t know about all that, but that’s a pretty cool gift!
Kate Middleton's July 11th due date is still almost two weeks away, but the royal baby watch is already well taking place outside of St. Mary's Hospital in London she is expected to give birth. Photographers and other members of the media started setting up camp across the street from the hospital yesterday in anticipation of the headline and historymaking delivery. Even an area of parking spaces outside the hospital has been closed off with signs saying it's reserved for an "event" from July 1st to July 31st. Regardless, news of the royal baby's birth will be revealed on a framed announcement placed on a wood and gold easel behind the gates of Buckingham Palace. There will be gun salutes, flag flying, the whole nine yards. Pure craziness!
Demi Lovato got her big break at the age of 7 when she was cast in the popular PBS children's program Barney & Friends. But even though she portrayed a happy elementary school student on TV, Demi Lovato is opening up and letting the world know that she was battling some very serious demons. She said, "At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling. Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who's ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child's heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. Even before Barney, I was suicidal. I was 7. With Barney, I guess subliminally, I did have a relationship with this figure that was saving my life in a way. . . I've talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I've never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out." So glad to see her get through all of that and succeed!

This storyline just keeps getting better! Amanda Bynes wants to be given a million dollars a year. Why? Amanda Bynes took to Twitter to explain that she deserves that kind of money because her privacy is being invaded. She tweeted: "I Want A Million Dollars A Year For Illegally Having My Mind Read And Privacy Stolen," she wrote. Yes, you heard me correctly. Her rant of calling celebrities ugly also has continued, with Cher being the latest person added to the list. Amanda Bynes called her "ugly and a flop," to which Cher responded, "Who's that?" HAHA WAY TO GO CHER!
A big question floating around is when will we meet Kim Kardashian’s baby North? Well, even though her mother Kris Jenner has publicly said that she won’t discuss her daughter’s child on her new talk show, she could reveal her granddaughter’s planned magazine cover on the chat fest, considering People Magazine is offering $2 million for the first photos of North West. The magazine wants Kim, Kanye and the baby to appear on the cover together and would give the couple photo approval. My sources are telling me that even though Kris Jenner has publicly said she won’t talk about North on her talk show, that is very different from what she is saying privately. She is pressuring Kim to let her reveal the planned magazine pictures during the premiere week of her talk show. To be continued.
I think we all expected this to happen. Rihanna has been on good behavior lately, even showing up on time for her recently scheduled concerts. This is all after reports surfaced that Rihanna’s partying was getting in the way of her tour. But that streak of responsibility ended in Zurich this weekend. Rihanna was an hour and a half minutes late to her concert Saturday night, and after partying that night until well past 4 am, she showed up for Sunday night’s concert about two hours late. Fans took to Twitter and Facebook, some going as far to say she seemed drunk and was lip synching. EEK!
This is so NOT shocking! Taylor Swift hasn't been quiet about her dislike for Justin Bieber. In fact, she is apparently doing just about anything she can to keep Selena Gomez away from her ex-boyfriend. Even though Taylor Swift is away on tour, she has reportedly been helping Selena Gomez get through the breakup by calling her throughout the day and setting her up with replacement friends while she's gone. My source is telling me that Taylor Swift is making Selena Gomez a huge priority, talking to her 10 times a day and dropping everything whenever Selena Gomez calls. Taylor Swift will also find out what her other friends are doing and makes sure that Selena Gomez gets invited along. HOW SWEET!
