1. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are having a girl
You can stop holding your breath, America: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have confirmed that they're having a girl. And if you doubted that Kim Kardashian could find the grossest way possible to convey that information, do we have a surprise for you! "I don't see any peepees," said the couple's doctor, using the preferred medical terminology, prompting Kardashian to reply, "It definitely would take after his father, so you would see it." Good luck scrubbing that image from your memory.

2. The Writer's Guild says The Sopranos is the best-written TV show of all time
Have you ever wondered what a loosely connected group of dues-paying TV writers think the best-written TV show ever is? Well, using a system that is both arbitrary and thorough, the Writer's Guild of America has concluded that HBO's The Sopranos is the best-written series in television history, which will give fans of The Wire another chance to complain about how nobody watched it. The full list, which spans 101 shows, is available at the official Writer's Guild of America website. (And before you ask: No, Two and a Half Men somehow missed the cut.)

3. Green Lantern screenwriter is working on a Blade Runner sequel
Because no film can make money without someone trying to turn it into a franchise, Blade Runner 2 is on the way. And now that director Ridley Scott has gotten serious about filming a sequel to his beloved sci-fi classic, he's tracked down the perfect screenwriter: Michael Green. You might remember him as the writer behind that Green Lantern movie that everybody hated — which clearly makes him the perfect choice to tackle another sci-fi property with a massive, picky fan base.

4. Justin Bieber got a tattoo of a knight in shining armor
The teen pop star has added to his growing collection of tattoos by getting a large image of an armored knight tattooed on his left forearm. The tattoo may indicate that the Biebs is finally turning over a new leaf — or, in an infinitely more likely possibility, that he finally got caught up on Game of Thrones.

5. Willow Smith, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Baldwin selfishly go about their normal lives
Famous teenagers Willow Smith, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Baldwin made a trip to Starbucks in New York on Sunday — and they didn't even stop everything they were doing because a bunch of entitled fans bothered them about it! "People were begging for just a hello even, but they didn't even look up and just hid behind their bodyguards. A few even started crying!" said a source at Radar Online. It's almost like these three teenage girls don't want to be accosted by pushy strangers everywhere they go.
