Kim Kardashian and Kanye West celebrated North West's first birthday over the weeked by throwing a kid's version of Coachella that they dubbed "Kidchella." (Yes, seriously). The belated bash (North's actual birthday fell on June 15), featured a ferris wheel, multiple music stages and rich people trying way too hard to dress like hippies. Kylie Jenner and Jade Smith also lip-synced to Kanye and Rihanna songs onstage. Of course, the entire Kardashian family made sure to post several photos documenting North's party on Instagram. Oddly enough, North herself is not in any of them.
Jeremy Meeks, the blue-eyed babe whose sexy mugshot went viral after being posted to a California police department's Facebook page, has broken his silence to address his sudden popularity. The 30-year-old spoke to ABC News 10 from behind a glass wall, where he wore a orange jumpsuit, smiled and shook his head. "I appreciate (the attention), but I just want them to know that this really is not me," he explained. "I'm not some kingpin." Meeks said that his wife (sorry, ladies) informed him of his newfound fame when she visited him in jail. However, the convicted felon, who has already served a nine-year term, insists he is innocent this time. He is charged with illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez went on a dinner-movie date on Friday. The on-again, off-again couple was photographed leaving Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills and looking cozy at the theater. They were also accompanied by security guards (how romantic). A source tells E! News that Gomez's friends and family urged her to stay away from The Biebs, but that she decided to give him another chance because she doesn't want to be single this summer. Sigh.
Is Kesha in love? The "Timber" singer sounded smitten when she opened up about boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter during an interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest Friday. "He's really, a really sweet human being," she gushed. "I’m very happy to have him in my life... I’m really happy with my beard." The 27-year-old pop star, who met Ashenfelter through her stylist, also dished that he's just her type. "I just like them to be beardy [with] long hair and look like a little homeless," she explained. "I like guys who look like they don’t groom themselves. I'm not into guys who are very high-maintenance. I don’t want them to take longer to get ready than me."
Pearl Jam chose an unexpected song to play at a recent gig, when they covered “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen. NME reports that the rock act performed 40 seconds of the song during an extended riff on their song “Daughter” at their show in Milan, Italy, on Friday, June 20. So, basically, Eddie Vedder is the coolest dad ever.
Tracy Morgan, who was seriously injured in a highway collision on June 7, has been transferred from the hospital to a rehabilitation center where he is expected to stay for a few weeks. "While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go," his publicist said in a statement. Morgan suffered a broken nose, femur, leg, and several ribs when a Walmart truck slammed into his limo bus on the New Jersey Turnpike. In a criminal complaint, police said the truck driver had been awake for more than 24 hours when the accident took place.
Kelly Clarkson introduced her week-old daughter to the world on Friday by sharing the first photo of her little angel on social media. The photo, which features River Rose napping in a red carriage, was captioned: “Here is our beautiful baby girl River Rose; 6 lbs., 6 oz., 18 inches, and the greatest thing on the planet.” River is Clarkson’s first child with her husband Brandon Blackstock, whom she wed last October.
Katy Perry is a big fan of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and offered to write Clinton’s campaign theme song when she met her on Saturday, Billboard reports. Perry, who chatted with the Secretary during a stop on her Hard Choices book tour, posted a picture of the two on Twitter and Instagram with the caption, “I told hillaryclinton that I would write here a “theme” song if she needs it…” Clinton responded by saying “Well that’s not a Hard Choice. You already did! Keep letting us hear you Roar.” Talk about a dynamic duo!
Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams gave fans a glimpse at their roles as coaches on the upcoming season of The Voice in a new promo clip posted over the weekend. The clip, which also features returners Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, shows the coaches wearing black and dancing to Stefani’s 2004 hit single “Hollaback Girl” on a red and white set. While Levine and Shelton are their usual silly selves, Stefani appears to add some sass. And Williams keeps it cool wearing an Adidas jacket and a smirk.
