-Alleged audio from Kanye West’s backstage meltdown at SNL has leaked and it’s not good. Tidbits include: “They took my fuckin’ stage off of SNL, without asking me. Now I’m bummed. That and Taylor Swift, fake ass. Now I ain’t gon’ do this.”
–Gwen Stefani admits that her new song is about Blake Shelton. Really? ‘Cause you guys were doing such a bang up job keeping it on the DL ’till now.

(I once overheard someone in an elevator say “Francie doesn’t like coffee ice cream” and it took everything in me not to throw myself at her and cling like a leech…)
