Kanye West has finally won the lawsuit against the now-folded virtual currency Coinye. NBC News reports that documents were filed last week marking the end of the suit, which had the rapper going against a currency featuring his cartoon likeness. Kanye’s lawyers first filed the suit against Coinye earlier this year. Shortly afterwards, the currency’s creators posted a message on their website that read, "Coinye is dead. You win, Kanye." Kanye’s lawyers have reportedly filed 84 court documents this year, naming 100 unknown people and a handful of named defendants. While several defendants lost their cases as a result of not responding, three settled with the rapper.
Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon reminisced about a fake '80s TV show they did together during the actor's appearance on The Tonight Show Friday. In the sketch "Palisades Park Pet Patrol," the two played animal patrol officers named Pat and Pete who conversed using as many words as possible that started with the letter "p." During their talk, they chowed down on progressively messier foods ranging from Saltine crackers to yogurt. As a result, the two kept spraying food in each other's faces. Fallon ended up giggling so hard that his fake mustache fell off.
Coldplay has donated $17,000 to a fan suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease. NME reports that the band decided to pledge the money to a fundraiser started by fan Jody Duff, who is raising money for research into Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), after his friend wrote the band a letter in which he explained his illness. “Chris [Martin] was genuinely interested in learning about [the] disease,” Duff told The Mirror. In addition to pledging the money, the band invited Duff to their second show at London’s Royal Albert Hall last week, where he spent time backstage. Martin also dedicated their performance of “Fix You” to Duff during the show.
Lady Gaga once again teased her long-awaited Cheek to Cheek album with Tony Bennett in a series of photos posted to her Instagram this weekend. Billboard reports that Gaga posted several shots of herself in the studio, captioning the pics "Studio Rattin' with the Bennett Boys" and "It's a Standard night #CheekToCheek." Fans have been awaiting the full album collaboration since Gaga and Bennett duetted on “The Lady Is a Tramp” in 2011. In the meantime, Gaga joined Bennett on stage sat the Montreal Jazz Festival at the beginning of the month, where they performed “But Beautiful” and “Lush Life.”
Joel McHale had some choice words for NBC during the Community panel at Comic-Con this weekend. Rolling Stone reports that the actor and show creator Dan Harmon were discussing the Community's online-only move to Yahoo! when McHale explained, "You’re young people. You watch it the way most people do, which is on tiny little screens. And now we’re on one, so f**k you, network television." Community was cancelled by NBC after five seasons to the dismay of diehard fans last spring. While the show was originally expected to be picked up by Hulu or Netflix, both of those deal fell through. Thankfully, Yahoo! stepped in last month and agreed to resuscitate the series.
