The daily gossip: Kanye West unfollowed Kim Kardashian, Lorde's new song leaked, and more
Today's top entertainment and celebrity news
Welcome to the post-Keeping Up With the Kardashians world
It's the end of a cultural era — one that gave us thought-provoking quotes, endless memes, TikTok audio, and of course, launched the Kardashian empire. The series finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired Thursday, and saw the family bury a time capsule with cherished memories from the show. Meanwhile, Kanye West is leading the charge into the post-KUWTK world, by not keeping up. It was revealed Friday that West stopped following the famous family on Twitter. If Kanye and E! are done keeping up, what does that mean for the rest of us? We don't have to decide just yet, since a reunion special is airing later this month. Oh, and there's that multi-year deal with Hulu, so the Kardashians aren't leaving us in the dark just yet.
Someone leaked Lorde's new song after she warned everyone 'patience is a virtue'
Lorde released, and then deleted, and then re-released her first new music in four years on Thursday. Despite the singer reminding her fans that "patience is a virtue" when she posted the bootylicious artwork for her forthcoming album earlier this week, it seems someone leaked the title track, "Solar Power." The track was originally intended to come out on the summer solstice on June 20 but appeared on Tidal and Amazon Music briefly on Thursday afternoon instead. While the music was swiftly pulled, Lorde proceeded to formally release the single later in the day. She told Apple Music's Zane Lowe the track was inspired by "cicadas," the Primal Scream song "Loaded," and … Larry David's vacation home in Martha's Vineyard.
Shockingly, Lilibet is rumored to look like her parents
Let's be honest: newborn babies don't really look like anyone. But that doesn't stop excited friends, family members, and royal subjects from cooing that the squishy faces of new humans look "juuuust like daddy!" Still, since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once again said "hard pass" to the Royal Family's tradition of standing awkwardly outside the hospital to present their baby to the world, there's already a lot of speculation about what their daughter, Lilibet, looks like (chiefly, "is [she] a lil' redhead or nah?"). In the meantime, we'll all have to make do with reports from "sources" like the one who told Us Weekly "exclusively" that Lili is "a cross between Harry and Meghan" — as if we couldn't have figured that much out for ourselves.
Someone's spent almost 6 months calling 911 to send police to Jennifer Lopez's house
The call is coming … well, not from inside the house. Much to the chagrin of the LAPD, someone won't stop calling the cops to Jenny's block. TMZ reports that police are still being "flooded" with "bogus" 911 calls telling them to go to Jennifer Lopez's home in Los Angeles, something that has been happening for almost six months. The 911 caller will reportedly make complaints like that there's "disturbing noise" coming from the singer's house, only for police to arrive there and find no disturbance. "Cops are struggling to track down the 911 callers because the calls aren't coming from a landline — and the bogus calls have become a huge waste of time and manpower," TMZ writes. For now, the caller or callers remain at large.
Tina Knowles wonders if Beyoncé has to be so extra
Fans may have been thrilled to see Beyonce fly through the air on her 2009 I Am… World Tour, but her mother most certainly was not. Tina Knowles shared a throwback video on Instagram of her daughter flipping through the air on a harness to her song "Baby Boy," and wrote how stressful the tour was: "I prayed through this segment every night! And aged 10 years on this tour!" As her "fearless child flipped 20 times hundreds of feet into the air," she wondered why Bey couldn't just spin around on the stage. "Do you have to be so extra," Knowles wrote. The answer is, of course, yes. She is Beyoncé.
