Kanye WestKanye West will bring out his sixth solo album "right after" G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer is released.

The "Stronger" hitmaker is likely to release the record before the end of the year, with the target being for it to quickly follow his collective's compilation LP into stores.

You know what to expect from the family. He hasn't missed yet, so don't expect him to miss."

There's no word yet as to the title of Kanye's upcoming album.

The set of A Good Day to Die Hard in Budapest, Hungary, burst into flames after a pyrotechnics stunt went wrong. "No one was injured by the flames, which occurred during a pyrotechnics stunt just after midnight CET on Thursday, and were contained a short while later. Bruce Willis, was not on set, nor were other principal cast. Principal photography on the movie began in April in Budapest, and is expected to wrap late summer," a statement from 20th Century Fox read.

According to website Perez Hilton, Bruce - who plays the film's hero, John McClane - was back in his hotel at the time of the disaster, but rushed back to the set to help clear equipment from the fire's dangerous path.

Brad Pitt’s Mother Writes Anti-Gay Marriage Letter

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

Brad PittBrad Pitt's mother Jane Pitt has "Christian" views on abortion and gay marriage.

The showbiz matriarch - whose son Brad is one of the most vocal supporters of gay rights in Hollywood - has written a letter to her local newspaper the News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri, urging people to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, due to him being a "family man with high morals."

She also hits out at President Barack Obama because he supports the "killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."

"I am ... a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion. But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon. Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama - a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage," she wrote.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Regularly Split

Selena Gomez and Justin BieberJustin Bieber and Selena Gomez have reportedly broken up multiple times in the last few months.

Apparently the pop stars most recently decided to end their relationship last week, but have since rekindled and are giving their relationship another try. A source told website TMZ.com that 18-year-old Justin and 19-year-old Selena's current situation is tenuous and stated that they are not a "solid" couple.

The two have been dating for around a year and a half and while Disney actress Selena has maintained her squeaky clean image, Justin has been faced with some controversy recently.

Recent reports claimed that Justin may have to face jail if convicted on criminal charges for an altercation with a photographer. Justin recently said he thinks he could take One Direction in a fight. Although the "Boyfriend" hitmaker knows he couldn't beat the boy band if they all attacked him as a group, he is confident he could hold his own individually against Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. "I'd get my ass kicked (against all of them). But one-on-one I'd take them. I'd try a spin-kick. To the face," he is quoted as saying.

7-inch iPad set to debut in October

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Handhelds, Rumors,

7-inch iPad coming in October

A smaller iPad has been rumored to be arriving for over a year now, aimed to compete with 7-inch tablets like the Kindle Fire. Now, on the heels of the announcement of the Nexus 7 and Surface tablets, both Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal are reporting that sources are indicating that Apple is set to start production on a 7.8-inch iPad with the goal of launching it this October. Unlike the 2012 iPad model, this smaller slate won't be sporting a Retina display as Apple will instead opt for a 1024 x 768 panel to keep costs down. We know, it's another iPad rumor. The difference here, though, is that when you see major outlets like WSJ and Bloomberg reporting it, it's with great confidence. October should also see the debut of the next-generation iPhone as well.
