Kanye West and Kris JennerKris Jenner thinks Kanye West is "amazing."

The showbiz matriarch is delighted her daughter Kim Kardashian is moving on from her doomed marriage to Kris Humphries with the rapper because he makes her happy.

"After spending time with Kanye, I think he's an amazing guy. I want Kim to be with someone who makes her happy. They get on so well, so it's all good. I want them to follow their hearts," Kris said.

Despite occasional rows on their show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris is close to her six children and is pleased they can always confide in her: "I'm a mother and I want to keep my children happy and healthy. We might have the odd spat on the show, but we communicate really well and they can tell me anything. We spend every day together. And, believe me, I keep their feet firmly on the ground."

Britney Spears on 'The X Factor'Simon Cowell believes Britney Spears is a "fearless" X Factor judge.

The "Toxic" singer joined the judging panel of the show alongside Demi Lovato following Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger's exit after one series, and the music mogul claims Britney is excellent because she is not swayed by anyone else's opinion.

"Britney is fearless. She has no qualms about turning down a contestant. To get a, 'No' out of Paula, as you know, was like getting blood out of a stone because she didn't want to be unpopular. Britney will turn people down even if 4,000 people are going crazy about the contestant," he said.

Simon also praised Demi, who he finds often gangs up with Britney: "When the two of them get together and me and L.A. Reid want someone to go through, these two, they gang up. And that's what happens when you put two girls together!"

The second season of the The X Factor will premiere on September 12.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Features,

Kris Jenner and Kim KardashianKris Jenner insists putting daughter Kim Kardashian on birth control pills when she was just 15 years old was the "right thing to do."

The showbiz matriarch was recently criticized after the reality TV star, now 30, revealed her mother had helped her with contraception following a conversation when she was just 14 years old, but Kris insists her actions were sensible.

"First of all when we made it to the doctor's office she was 15 years old, you can tell your child what you expect from them and what is the right thing to do, and what it is to be a well-rounded human being. Short of locking my kids in a closet... She was sharing with me that she felt this urge to be sexual and she felt this part of her life coming on, I did what I thought was the right thing to do, I drove her to the doctor, this doctor delivered all of my children, it was somebody I really trusted, I thought if anyone could wrap their head around what is going on with Kim is my doctor. I took her there and said, 'Just make sure my daughter it protected, make sure she's safe, she needs an education' ... you just have to protect your kids."

Here’s the story, as reported by Flint Dille:

“Roger Slifer is in intensive care after being run over in a hit and run on Friday Night around 1:00.

John Travolta Sued For Assault

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

John TravoltaJohn Travolta is being sued for assault by cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi.

The Grease actor has previously been accused by the man of exposing himself during a Royal Caribbean cruise in 2009, but Fabian is now requesting unspecified damages for the alleged assault, TMZ.com reports.

John - who is married to Kelly Preston - allegedly asked for a meal to be delivered to his room, where he then asked Fabian for a neck massage. He then claims the actor dropped his robe when he went to reach for his neck and forcefully embraced him, telling him he was "beautiful." When he resisted, Travolta reportedly offered him $12,000 to remain silent about the issue. Fabian claims he told management on board the cruise ship about the event but they refused to allow him to write out any details.

It is the second time in recent days the legendary star has been sued.
