Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson got matching tattoos

Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson once got matching ink live from New York — though only one of them still has it. This would have been in 2017, when Cyrus and Davidson starred in a Saturday Night Live sketch where they rap while dressed as babies. "It was a very dark time, I think, in our lives," Davidson joked on The Tonight Show. Cyrus proclaims in the sketch "we babies," and she told Jimmy Fallon that "for some reason," they "looked at each other and were like, 'that's a great tattoo!'" So Davidson actually had his "tattoo guy" come by 30 Rock, and they both got matching tattoos that just say "we babies." Davidson later had his lasered off, but Cyrus still has hers on her foot. "I stopped smoking weed the next day," Cyrus said. "For a couple of years. Well, at least with Pete."

Kanye West begs Kim Kardashian to 'run right back' to him

Speaking of Davidson, in case you didn't get the memo that Kanye West really wants Kim Kardashian to break up with the Saturday Night Live star, he openly begged at a concert on Thursday night. While performing with Drake in Los Angeles at a show that Kardashian attended, West repeatedly sang, "I need you to run right back to me, baby! I need you to run right back to me!" If there was any doubt about what he was talking about, West added, "more specifically, Kimberly." Kardashian filed for divorce from West earlier this year and is currently dating Davidson, but West has previously said that "I want us to be together" and claimed "the media" doesn't want this to happen. Meanwhile, People cites a source as saying Kardashian "has moved on" but "she knows it's difficult for Kanye to deal with."

HBO is reportedly reviving 'Six Feet Under'

Six Feet Under is coming back from the dead. HBO is in the early stages of developing a follow-up to the classic drama series, says Variety. The report stressed the project is in "very" early development, so there aren't yet any details about the plot or even whether it will be a reboot or a sequel. Alan Ball, creator of the original series, is reportedly on board to produce. Airing from 2001 through 2005, Six Feet Under revolved around a family that runs a funeral home, with almost every episode opening with a different character's death. The show is widely regarded as having one of the best endings ever — the anti-Game of Thrones, if you will — so the idea of reviving it sparked some immediate skepticism. But news of the project comes a day after HBO brought back another show popular in the early 2000s, Sex and the City, with the reboot And Just Like That. For the sake of Peloton's shareholders, let's just hope the new Six Feet Under won't involve anyone dying on an exercise bike.

Netflix's 'Cowboy Bebop' has already been canceled

Netflix's Cowboy Bebop is over faster than you can say "three, two, one, let's jam." The live-action remake of the classic anime has been canceled, a decision that brutally came less than three weeks after the show's debut. The series starring John Cho was slammed with some tough reviews, and critics generally recommended viewers just watch the original anime. It was the latest example of Netflix debuting an expensive new series with big hopes for its future, only for it to completely flop and get quickly axed, a fate also met by the superhero show Jupiter's Legacy earlier this year. Even so, it's not often you see a high-profile streaming series debut just before Thanksgiving and not even make it to Christmas. Oh well — see you, space cowboy.

Taylor Swift to face trial over claim she ripped off 'Shake It Off' lyrics

Taylor Swift wasn't able to shake off a claim she copied lyrics for one of her most popular songs — at least not before it heads to a trial. A judge has declined to dismiss a copyright case against Swift over her song "Shake It Off," which songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler claim copied lyrics from their 3LW song "Playas Gon' Play." Both songs feature versions of the phrase "players gonna play" and "haters gonna hate," and … that's pretty much it. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald previously said these lyrics are "too brief, unoriginal, and uncreative" for a copyright case. But an appeals court reversed this ruling, and the judge said Swift will have to face a trial since the court can't "determine that no reasonable juror could find substantial similarity of lyrical phrasing, word arrangement, or poetic structure between the two works." We'll have to see whether a jury thinks she did something bad
