That is now the story of Jared Leto's famously long hair. The Oscar-winning actor got a dramatic makeover on Monday, courtesy of his Suicide Squad director, David Ayer, who posted a teaser photo of a ponytail (obviously Jared's) in his hand, along with a pair of scissors about to chop the hair.

“Should we? #SuicideSquad” David captioned the photo, which has since been retweeted over 6,000 times.

Although fans seemed to have a mixed reaction to the threat of Jared's lusciously long locks getting lopped off—one Twitter fan even prayed that he wouldn't do it, writing “No, please, Jesus, no!”—it appears that he did, indeed, make the cut. Four hours later, David posted another pic of Jared, this time sporting no facial hair and what appears to be a sexy short hairdo.

Jared warned his fans back in December to expect to see him wearing shorter hair in 2015. He posted an old photo of himself, along with the caption, “#Haircut2015.”

Jared's makeover did have a purpose, however. The actor is set to take on the role of The Joker in David Ayer's upcoming supervillain movie, Suicide Squad. The film will be jam-packed with A-listers, as Ben Affleck, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne and Tom Hardy, among others, have already signed on to star in the film. The film follows a team of former villains who have been forced into military service. They are required to take missions that are almost guaranteed to cost them their lives.

David Ayer has stated that Jared's portrayal of The Joker will be “majestic,” and Jared himself has called the job “a big challenge.”

“The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character — that's what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right” he recently told Billboard. “[The Joker is] this beautiful disaster of a character — what a big challenge.”

Don't expect Jared to go Kardashian-style and use extensions on his head until his hair grows back. According to his longtime hair stylist, Chase Kusero, Jared would never do such a thing.

“He wouldn't be caught dead with extensions,” Chase told The Cut in 2014. “Like, never. Less is more with him. He has great genetics, obviously.”

The teenager feels she's gained a fair few lbs since the snap, admitting to being over a stone heavier.

Kylie, 17, uploaded the image to her Instagram page, where she is seen wearing an oversized white T-shirt and leather look jeans, with her brunette hair styled in a heavily highlighted bob, while fuelling her vehicle at a fuelling station alongdside the caption “15 pounds skinnier & had a little blonde goin on."

It was the teenager's 34-year-old big sister Kim who kicked off the body comparison trend earlier this year when she uploaded an image of "how skinny" she used to be. At the time Kim captioned an image on her Instagram: "Since it's award season I will do my #TBT to the time Kourtney and I went to the Emmys. She was pregnant and I was about 15 to 20 pounds thinner."Kylie Jenner at her thinnest

Kylie recently talked about how she uses Instagram to connect with her fans - but it's only the image she wants people to see and not her true self. She also told Fault magazine - in an interview to go along with her cover of the magazine's current issue - how it feels growing up in such a famous family.

She told the publication: "People are going to judge you no matter what you do. So now I feel like I haven't been open as much as I used to be. I haven't really been letting my fans get to know me a lot: I've closed down.

"I love to connect with people, but it became just a bigger door for people to judge me. I feel like, growing up, I haven't had a lot of room for error - I don't have room to make mistakes. You need to make mistakes to grow and learn, but I'm just a little different because the world is watching me, every since thing I do. On Instagram I'm like a different person almost, I just show people what I want people to see."

<![CDATA[Dame Maggie Smith hints at Downton Abbey departure: 'I can't keep going']]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/165823/Maggie-Smith-to-quit-Downton-Abbey-after-series-6 For many of us, Downton Abbey just wouldn't be the same without acting veteran Dame Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess, though it looks like the actress is gearing up to leave the period drama because ]]> For many of us, Downton Abbey just wouldn't be the same without acting veteran Dame Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess, though it looks like the actress is gearing up to leave the period drama because she doesn't see how her character, who she claims should be well into her hundreds by now, can carry on living.

The actress, who plays the role of Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, has hinted that she may leave Downton after the sixth series because her character has been going for too long, and her presence in the show could soon be deemed unrealistic given that she should technically be over 100 years of age by now. While creator Lord Julian Fellowes has claimed she's in her 80s, Maggie thinks it could be coming towards the end of her days on the show.

"They say this is the last one, and I can't see how it could go on," the actress told the Sunday Times. "I certainly can't keep going. To my knowledge, I must be 110 by now. We're into the late 1920s." Smith even admitted that she herself finds the filming schedule exhausting, adding: "Television really does you in."

But while the 80-year-old actress thinks that her onscreen persona should call it a day, it doesn't look like Smith herself is planning to stop acting anytime soon, having recently completed 'The Second Best Marigold Hotel'. But despite her countless film credits and many years in the spotlight, the actress revealed that she has always managed to get away with going under the radar... until Downton came along.

The ITV1 drama has enjoyed a ton of success both in the UK and across the pond in the US, and while she's happy that so many people enjoy the drama, she isn't enjoying going out and being noticed.

"One isn't safe after doing Downton," she said. "What's sad is I've gone through my whole life without any of that. I could go round galleries and things on my own and I just can't do it now. If someone decides to get at you, you can't get away.”

Smith also admitted to the publication that becoming a recognised face around the world has also seen more fans ask her for selfies, something she isn't too keen on. "What's awful is it used to be just autographs, but now everyone wants photographs," she told the publication. "You begin to feel like all those people who believed photographs took the soul away. There's nothing like privacy, but nobody will have that soon. Nobody's private any more."

With the loss of so many of it's stars over the last few years including Dan Stevens and Jessica Brown-Findlay, you'd expect the Downton team would be keen to keep the Dame on. He told EntertainmentWise back in October: "The Dowager was 70 when she started, she's 82 now and my grandmother lived until her hundredth year, so I don't think there's any chance of that.”

The dating app is uncannily similar to Tinder, though it inherits one major difference — girls have to make the first move. When a match is made, it's down to the girl to start the conversation, and if she doesn't hit up her match within 24 hours, they disappear forever, like many a sad love story has gone in the past.

But while guys worry about coming off like a sexual predator online, there's no denying girls are sometimes equally worried about coming off too desperate… and then of course there's our overwhelming fear of rejection that means we'd rather wait for the guy to make the first move — Hey, as selfish as it sounds, we'd prefer to be the rejector than the rejectee, thanks.

But while some of you ladies decide to keep mute for fear of saying the wrong thing to the guy with the super hot display picture, there is one lady who's come up with an entirely new way of starting a conversation… recite Taylor Swift song lyrics and hope for the best.

Now, we know what your thinking, 'As if there are guys out there who are going to want to recite Taylor Swift lyrics with me, yeah right!' but despite what you might reckon, this Bumble user has discovered that there are more male fans of the country crooner-turned-pop songstress than you could ever imagine.

See the hilarious, and weirdly romantic, results of using Taylor Swift lyrics to pick up hot guys in the chat screenshots below. They're guaranteed to rid you of that dull Monday feeling!

1. Ryan doesn't get it

2. Andrew is a total Swift fan

3. Matt is totally cofused

4. James is a keeper

5. You can now actually 'Taylor Swift' someone

6. Eric tries to Shake It Off

7. Eye roll from Christian

8. Poor Cory, he just didn't get it

9. There's either some googling going on, or there are more male Taylor fans than we thought!

10. Patrick is over it

Jepsen performed the aptly-named new single on Good Morning America earlier today and fans have been going crazy for it, with some even dubbing it their "favourite new song". Believe it or not, it's actually been three years since the baby-faced star, who we still don't believe is 29, released her debut single, and despite some assuming the singer was another one-hit-wonder, it seems there was a reason for her lengthy hiatus.

"I told her that she couldn't come out with anything unless it was on the level of ‘;Call Me Maybe,'” her manager Scooter Braun told Billboard in January. "And, now we have a new one that is on that level." Of course, Call Me Maybe wasn't the only Jepsen track that enjoyed chart success. The Canadian beauty also enjoyed chart success with Owl City on single 'Good Time,' which peaked at number 5 on the UK chart and number 8 on the US Billboard 100. She also released 'This Kiss' and 'Tonight I'm Getting Over You' though neither secured anywhere near the amount of success as Call Me Maybe, which peaked in the top three of almost every music chart in the world, landing at number 1 in both the UK and the US.

But while that kind of chart domination is something most artists can only dream of, it looks like Carly could reach the same scenario with her comeback single, which already has Twitter going crazy with delight. "Trying to determine the perfect number of times I can listen to #IReallyLikeYou in a row without ruining it," one user tweeted. "Call me Maybe was and will forever be my jam. #IReallyLikeYou is my next jam though. @carlyraejepsen @hoogs @scooterbraun @justinbieber," another wrote. "If you see me slip and fall on campus today, it was definitely NOT because I was dancing too hard to #IReallyLikeYou. I promise," read a different tweet.

Justin Bieber, who first signed Carly to his label, has mentioned to fans that the singer's music video will also be one to remember. "Make my artist @carlyraejepsen #1 again! And get ready for the video. Crazy :) @tomhanks," he tweeted last night. Does that mean the Biebs and Hollywood veteran Tom Hanks will be making an appearance?

<![CDATA[Banksy in Gaza: Artist warns it could become 'outdoor recruitment center for terrorists']]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/165818/Bansky-creates-new-artwork-on-the-streets-of-Gaza He's renowned across the world for his street art, which often depicts political injustice, and now anonymous street artist Banksy has attempted to use his artistic influence to make people stand up and take ]]> He's renowned across the world for his street art, which often depicts political injustice, and now anonymous street artist Banksy has attempted to use his artistic influence to make people stand up and take notice of Gaza, in what feels like the first time since the war there last summer.

The region, which sits on the border of Palestine, was thrown into turmoil in 2014 when Israel's 50-day military operation against the Hamas killed more than 2,000 Palestinians, most of them innocent civilians. But while world leaders were criticised for failing to fulfil the $5.4 billion clean-up operation they promised, having only delivered $300 million so far according to Al Jazeera, Banksy has decided to set them a reminder.

On Thursday, the street artist and activist, whose real identity has never been disclosed, posted a series of photos to his Instagram page, which displayed new works of art painted on the streets of Gaza.

There are a number of potent, yet arguably necessary, drawings which see the unidentified star spread his political message. One painting shows what looks like a classical sculpture collapsed and crying, his head in his hands. Another piece of street art depicts a sad-looking kitten, with the artist elaborating the meaning behind the feline on his Instagram page.

"A local man came up and said ‘;Please - what does this mean?' I explained I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website — but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens #banksy #gaza," the artist wrote, though it is uncommon for him to attach any caption other than #Banksy to his posts.

Another painting, laden in controversy, shows children on a carnival swing ride which is attached to a surveillance tower. “Gaza is often described as ‘;the world's largest open air prison' because no-one is allowed to enter or leave,” reads the caption for the guard tower swing. "But that seems a bit unfair to prisons — they don't have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost every day."

When asked by The New York Times when Banksy's visit to Gaza took place, his publicist wouldn't say when or precisely where he was in Gaza. Instead, she passed along what she said was a statement from the artist: "I don't want to take sides. But when you see entire suburban neighborhoods reduced to rubble with no hope of a future — what you're really looking at is a vast outdoor recruitment center for terrorists. And we should probably address this for all our sakes."

The pair starred alongside each other as Captain Kirk and Mr Spock in ]]> William Shatner has come under enormous fire for reportedly missing the funeral of his close friend and fellow Star Trek legend Leonard Nimroy. The pair starred alongside each other as Captain Kirk and Mr Spock in the massively successful sic-fi franchise for three years and even called themselves “Brothers”.

Shatner, 83, has now been dubbed Captain Jerk by the world's press for missing the memorial event which took place in Los Angeles on Sunday. Nimoy died two days earlier, on Friday February 28 of chronic lung disease.

The Hollywood icon admitted that he felt “awful” for his absence on Twitter, but stressed that he and already made plans to appear a Red Cross Ball in Florida on Saturday night so couldn't make it back in time. He wrote on Twitter: "I chose to honor a commitment I made months ago to appear at a charitable fundraiser. A lot of money was raised. So here I am; tell me off."

Werid, right? But it gets even stranger as TMZ have published a video that claims to show the television star arriving in LAX on Sunday, though apparently just after the service took place, at around 11:30am. So what could have happened? Could he not get an earlier flight?

In the clip, he remained professionally tight-lipped, despite the explosive backlash from Star trek fans in disbelief that Captain Kirk wouldn't pay his last respects to Spock. Defending his decision to go ahead with his professional engagements, Shatner tweeted a picture of the Daily News cover, which read: "Captain Jerk! Claims night event in Florida means he can't 'beam up' to L.A. in time."

"Let's discuss it," Shatner wrote on Twitter, alongside a picture of the tabloid's cover. "I chose to honor a commitment I made months ago to appear at a charitable fundraiser. A lot of money was raised. So here I am; tell me off.”

As a compromise, he then revealed plans to host his own ceremony for Nimoy, who made his last appearence as Spock in 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness, on the social networking site. He later compared his treatment form disgruntled fans to Britney's 2007 head-shaving days.

His two daughters, Melanie and Lisabeth managed to make the funeral and fans have been outraged that he chose to attend the charity gala and not honour his friendship. Instead he paid tribute to the actor on Twitter where he held a memorial for the actor and answered questions about their friendship.

The headlines will be that Smith's sexy heist caper with Aussie actress Margot Robbie knocked Fifty Shades of Grey off the top after two weeks, which is a pretty flattering claim to fame for the movie which features Smith as a professional hustler who recruits Wolf of Wall Street's Robbie.

From the creators of Crazy, Stupid Love Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the film isn't exactly on the Men In Black level, but clearly audiences felt it was the best on offer this weekend, which was a pretty quiet for theatres. Kingsman: The Secret Service and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water were in second and third place, with both getting over the $11 million mark.

The Theory of Everything got an Oscar boost, re-entering the charts at 19 with other winners Birdman and Still Alice also comfortably in the top 20. Fifty Shades of Grey is fast heading for the $500,000 million worldwide gross mark, but fell to fourth in the US this week, taking just $10,927,000 which was down 50% on the week before. Still with two weeks at number one and a domestic gross of $147,764,000 it will, no doubt, be back for a sequel. Rumours last week that Jamie Dornan might not sign up for the reported sequels have been dashed, though the studio may want to try and hang-on to director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

(FiftyShadesOfGrey/FocusFeatures)

She's rumoured to be considering quitting after clashing with author E.L James during the first shoot, but if the studio want to see these kind of numbers again, it may well be worth trying to tempt her to stay. After literally years of speculation about how the bonkbuster could be adapted for the big screen, what Sam created has received better reviews from critics than were predicted, with most saying it wasn't bad - which based on what was expected could constitute a rave.

In total $106,401,000 was taken at the Box Office, which was down from the same time last year, when the total was $123,702,030 proving the movie slump isn't over.

The Internet is filled with weird and wonderful treats ]]> Ever wondered what would happen if you filled up a bath tub with 50 gallons Coke Zero, covered yourself with soft sweets Mentos? No, us neither but thanks to YouTube user Hajime, we now have the answer.

The Internet is filled with weird and wonderful treats but this one has to be up there with one of the most bizarre clips to ever grace the video sharing site. So what on earth is the video in aid of? In the name of science? A statement against the high volume of nasty chemicals found in your bottle of Coca-Cola? For now, we're pretty sure there is absolutely no reason other than Hajime clearly has A LOT of time on his hands.

As you can imagine, the next YouTube sensation's bath tub erupts as he dives in butt first to produce a sticky Coke Zero jacuzzi as bottles overflow, bubbles explode and all in all it looks like on heck o f a pretty gross, definitely pointless experience from start to finish. Bizarrely though, poor Hajime isn't even the pioneer of Mentos bath diving. It's actually all been done before, and sadly for the excitable YouTuber, a little more elaborately.

As big a fan as we are of Hijame's clip, which has blown up on the Internet already amassing more than a staggering 6.1 million views and climbing on YouTube, there's a Vine uploaded by semi-genius, semi-nutter Harley Morenstein which goes one step further.

Morensteing has gone the extra mile to actually make an entire suit made of Mentos, of all flavours and colours, to bomb into a enormous tank of Coke Zero and the results are just a tad more explosive. His 2014 clip has picked up over 67 million hits and by the looks of it may have kick started the latest trend to take over the web. Watch his Vine below.

But amid rumours that she and director David O' Russell have been at loggerheads on the set of their new movie, the Oscar-winning actress took to Facebook to directly squash the stories of a feud once and for all.

The pair have previously won mutual acclaim for their previous work on American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook- both of which brought them Oscar nominations and one win for J-Law. But reports from gossip site TMZ claimed that while on set of their new movie Joy, the film's title could not have been a farther cry from the mood while filming.

Clearing the speculation on her Facebook, the Hollywood starlet wrote: "Hey guys! It's Jen! I know I don't go on here a lot because I can barely work email but there's been a terrible rumor going around the last 24 hours so I wanted to clear it up. David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship. I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey. This movie is going great and I'm having a blast making it!”

Last week TMZ claimed: "We're told there was a loud argument Tuesday on the Boston set between David and Jennifer, and it started over a scene. The eyewitness says David started screaming at her... it was ear-piercing and laced with profanities."

Honestly, could you really imagine the 24-year-old Hunger Games star not getting on with absolutely everyone? Other than the paparazzi of course, who she gave the middle finger on Thursday while walking her adorable puppy Pippi in a snowy Massachusetts.

Frankly with her 2015 work load, the last thing she needs to be concerned with is petty reports over her personal relationship with close pal David O'Russell. On top of filming her latest bid for another Academy Awards, Jen's got the latest installment of X-Men on the horizon as well as the release of the fourth and final installment of The Hunger Games.

Speaking about the experience, Nimoy admitted it had been a thrill to slip back into the ears: "Oh, it was a lot of fun, a lot of fun. They had a gigantic crowd. They were very enthusiastic. I had a lot of family with me, and we all enjoyed it."

He continued in an interview with Startrek.com: "It's hard not to enjoy this movie. There's so much of a thrill ride happening. The relationships between the characters are terrific. The actors are all wonderful. I'm particularly proud of Zachary Quinto because of my connection to the Spock character. I think Zachary did a wonderful job. But they're all terrific."

Fitting them to Nemoy for what would be the final time:

The actor's smile as he sees himself back in his famous ears is remarkable:

After appearing in both Star Trek (2009) and Into Darkness (2013), Nimoy was asked if he'd reprise the role of Spock again, he said: "That's impossible to answer. I don't know. I don't know what J.J. is going to do. I consider him a very good friend. I think he's done a great thing for Star Trek. I'm very grateful to him. We all owe him a lot. When someone comes along like he has done and picks it up and elevates it, we should be grateful. So when J.J. calls me, I take the call."

<![CDATA[Madonna admits daughter Lourdes told her off after she flashed her bum at the Grammys]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/165807/Madonnas-daughter-Lourdes-embarrassed-by-her-BRITs-fall We can't help but feel a little queasy when we see our mums walking around in low-cut tops so it comes as no surprise that Madonna's daughter Lourdes was overwhelmed with embarrassment when the Living For Love ]]> We can't help but feel a little queasy when we see our mums walking around in low-cut tops so it comes as no surprise that Madonna's daughter Lourdes was overwhelmed with embarrassment when the Living For Love singer got her bum out in a bizarre matador outfit at the Grammys last month.

The awkward fall hasn't put Madge off of performing live again though, as the singer has recently announced a string of tour dates across North America and Europe. For her British fans, the music icon will perform a number of dates, which will include London's O2 Arena on Dec. 1, Manchester's Mancester Arena on Dec. 14, Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena on Dec. 16.

But we have a feeling Lourdes is praying those dates go off without a hitch as according to the Material Girl, she wasn't impressed with her mother's choice of attire, and didn't hesitate in giving Madge a telling off about the revealing ensemble. The queen of pop left the world in shock when she rocked up on the red carpet wearing a costume that attempted the merge the look of a burlesque dancer with a matador, and it of course made for some disastrous results.

During an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, set to air next month, the television presenter asked Madonna if she ever runs her outfits past her children before heading out. The singer replied: “If no one's around [Lourdes] will definitely give me the once over and say, 'Oh, mum, you are not leaving the house like that!'" Referring to the Grammys, she added: "She did take a picture of my butt sticking out and sent it back to me and said, 'Mom, really?' and I said it was a wardrobe malfunction. I swear. She left it at that."

Even if Lourdes does give her mum the go-ahed on her outfit choices, it seems there's no telling what's going to happen later in the evening as Madonna admits flashing her bum wasn't actually part of the plan. She said: “I swear to God it was after I left, you know the big pen you have to stand in, and that naughty devilish voice in my head – sometimes I tune into it and sometimes I shut it off completely – said, ‘;lift up your skirt', and I did.”

During the candid chat, the 56-year-old confessed that she and her daughter have a pretty laidback relationship, with the star even giving her permission to experiment with drugs. Talking about her experiences with drugs in the past, and whether she would ban her children from using illegal substances, she dished: "I just ask my daughter to make wise decisions and to do things in moderation and to try not to mix her alcohol," the blonde admitted. "I am not going to say, 'no, don't do it' because that is just absurd. And it is not fair. Yeah, I did it."

The singer didn't reveal whether or not her daughter made any comment on her BRITs fall, though we're guessing she probably did, but by the sound of it the tumble left Madge embarrassed enough for the both of them. "It was a nightmare, I like to be amazing, I rehearse and rehearse so when I do a show it is effortless and I create magic. I did the opposite, I actually created a horror show for everyone."

The couple, who recently wed in a stunning ]]> Atlanta rapper Ludacris has confirmed that he and his stunning wife Eudoxie Mbouguiengue are expecting their first child. The couple, who recently wed in a stunning ceremony at their family home, broke the news with an adorable Instagram post on Sunday, March 1.

In the couple's first public family photo, the Fast and Furious actor kisses his newlywed on her bare baby bum while swanning themselves in front of crystal blue seas at the beach. "Beautiful day on the beach," she wrote, before he reposted, adding "Beautiful day indeed."

The couple have been dating on and off since 2009 and were married at Christmas just hours after the What's Your Fantasy hit maker proposed at a restaurant near their Atlanta home. The arrival of the child marks the first for the newlyweds together, while the 37-year-old already has two other children, 13-year-old Karma Bridges and two-year-old Cai Bella Bridges, whom he recently won custody of following a heated legal battle with ex girlfriend Tamika Fuller.

Courts heard that Ludacris, real name Christopher Brian Bridges, had offered to pay his ex $10,000 and a house for her to get an abortion. A judge however ruled in the Grammy Award winner's favour, granting him full-custody of the toddler. Tamika later accused her superstar ex of tying the knot during their court battle just to prove his stable household.

And with his third baby on the way, 2015's shaping up to be yet another massive year for the superstar. Later this month, we'll finally be able to get our kits on his long-overdue ninth studio album Ludaversal on March 31 before his film alongside the late Paul Walker as well as returning cast mates Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, Furious 7 arrives in cinemas on April 3.

Opinionated rapper Kanye West has been criticised for opening his mouth too much in the past but the tables have turned as the star appears to be annoying fans ]]> You just can't win with some people. Opinionated rapper Kanye West has been criticised for opening his mouth too much in the past but the tables have turned as the star appears to be annoying fans for not saying enough about his new album 'So Help Me God'.

The Only One hitmaker sent Twitter into a frenzy after he shared the title of his upcoming album, 'So Help Me God', alongside some rather complex-looking artwork. The photo, which many believe is the design of his album cover, features symbology that has left many struggling to work out what it all means, prompting them to devise their own conspiracy theories.

Reddit have discovered that the diamond shape, which is connected by four lower-case m's, is a 13th century monastic symbol for the Virgin Mary. Given that the title of his last album was ‘;Yeezus' and the first track from his latest album, 'Only One' was dedicated to his mother Donda West, some believe the album honours the late english professor.

Kanye album cover picture Twitter

Kanye posted this picture to Twitter on Saturday (Twitter/KanyeWest)

There are even those who believe that the image isn't the album artwork at all, but instead a hint as to when Kanye will release the album, following the news that the rapper will do as Beyonce and Drake did with their last albums and opt for a surprise release. “People are telling me that the date is ‘;the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary' and just incase somebody does't know, that picture that Ye tweeted was the monastic symbol of the Virgin Mary, coincidence? Now, for the more evidence to support the link…” one fan began on Twitter.

“Kanye dropped Only One (1) and FourFive Seconds (45) to tell us: 145. The address of the ‘;St Mary the Virgin Church in New York is: 145 W 46th St, New York. The Virgin Mary could represent Kanye's mother Donda (who he sings from the perspective of on Only One) and Mary was the mother of Jesus, this links because Donda is the mother of ‘;Yeezus',” they added. Pretty complicated you must admit, though the idea isn't totally incomprehensible.

Kanye West album conspiracy theory

One fan attempts to unravel the infinate mystery that is Kany West (Twitter)

Others have linked the image to the Illuminati, a supposed secret ‘;global elite' society that is either in control of the world or is seeking to take control. “There's 4 M's, M is the 13th letter, 13x4=52, 5x2=10, there are 10 letters in illuminati,” another tweeted, though we can't help but think this person might just have a little too much time on their hands.

A tracklist, claiming to be from Kanye's forthcoming album has also leaked online, though there is nothing to say that this isn't just a fan mock up. The supposed tracklist features songs 'Wolves ft. Sia' which the College Dropout star performed at New York Fashion Week, 'Only One ft. Paul McCartney', which has already hit the airwaves and 'All Day' which the musician performed at the BRIT Awards last Wednesday.

<![CDATA[Leonard Nimoy laid to rest as world pays tribute to Mr Spock ]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/165803/Leonard-Nimoy-dead-Funeral-takes-place-in-Los-Angeles Leonard Nimoy, beloved around the world for his role as Star Trek character Mr Spock was laid to rest on Sunday, following his death age 83 on ]]> Leonard Nimoy, beloved around the world for his role as Star Trek character Mr Spock was laid to rest on Sunday, following his death age 83 on Friday, February 27. The traditional Jewish service took place at his Bel Air home in Los Angeles according to reports with his wife Susan and children Adam, Julie and stepson Aaron Bay Schuck leading the tributes to the beloved star.

The service came two days after he lost his battle with end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which he revealed last year he had been battling and was attended by just family and close friends. Fans have been paying tribute to the actor all weekend, who became an icon thanks to his role as Spock on the first Star Trek series released in the 1960s. William Shatner, who starred alongside the actor as Captain Kirk, admitted on Saturday that he wouldn't be able to make the funeral as he had a charity commitment in Florida.

He wrote on Twitter: "I chose to honor a commitment I made months ago to appear at a charitable fundraiser. A lot of money was raised. So here I am; tell me off."

He added that his daughters would be attending the service instead and held a tribute on Twitter on Sunday, where he answered fans' questions about the great man. It's unknown if he did miss the service, he was photographed at LAX having arrived from the East Coast at 11:30am on Sunday, so may have well gone along to pay tribute to his life long friend.

Since his death there has been an out pouring of love and respect for the actor, who first became famous as Spock but was soon beloved by generations for his kind, gentle nature and huge creative talent. Canadians were even urged to alter their 5 dollar bills, so former Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier takes on the image of Spock. This soon got trending as 'Spocking Fives'.

(Mashable.com/Twitter)

Amongst those who paid tribute included fellow Stark Trek legend Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Piccard. He wrote on Twitter: "It is with sadness that I heard of Leonard Nimoy's death. I was lucky to spend many happy, inspiring hours with him. He won't be forgotten."

Zachary Quinto, who took on the role of Spock in the JJ Abrams re-boot also paid an emotional tribute to the actor. He wrote: "My heart is broken. i love you profoundly my dear friend. and i will miss you everyday. may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."

The highest tribute came from President Obama, who put it simply saying, "I loved Spock," in a statement released by the White House.

He said: "Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek's optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity's future. I loved Spock."

The president continued: "In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for “Live long and prosper.” And after 83 years on this planet — and on his visits to many others — it's clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today."

The 90's girl group star, who was just 46, is believed ]]> Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell, singer of the 90s girl group Brownstone died on Saturday, February 28, in a freak accident involving a broken wine glass. The 90's girl group star, who was just 46, is believed to have accidentally cut herself on a broken wine glass, according to TMZ.

The site reports that the singer had come home from her son's soccer match and was found later that evening by her husband, Danish producer Carsten Soulshock. He immediately called 911 after finding his wife, who unconcious still had a pulasde, but reprotedly died on the way to Cedars Sinai Hospital. Detectives do not suspect foul play.

While the exact cause of the Grammy-nominated singer is still to be determined, her brother Brandon confirmed her passing on Twitter. "R.I.P my beautiful sister Charmayne 'Maxee' Maxwell," he wrote. “I can't even believe I'm typing this right now.

"Bad things happened to the most innocent people," he continued "My sister died in the most terrible way, and I'm in so much pain right now.”

He also turned to Instagram to mourn his tragic loss, posting: "R.I.P to my beautiful sister Charmayne 'Maxee' Maxwell," he wrote, alongside a gorgeous photo of the late RnB star. "I'm so devasted because you deserved to stay on this earth much longer. You had such an amazing talent and you went really far with your singing career. I felt so inspired from you and it gave me motivation to become the best performer I could be. I love you so much sis, I'm so grateful I was able to have you in my life.”

Maxwell quickly shot to fame as one third of the 90's RnB group Brownstone, who went platinum and spent 37 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 with their debut album From The Bottom Up. Charmayne eventually split form the trio to pursue her own solo career but never quite reached the same heights as her peak in the acclaimed band.

Her fellow Brownstone member Teisha Brown reacted to the star's death on Instagram, writing; "I just need to be by you 1 more time on stage MAX! #BROWNSTONE #FOREVER R.I.H. I miss you already!! My heart is so heavy. I LOVE YOU SISTER!!” alongside a picture of the band on stage."#Brownstone #Forever R.I.H. I miss you already!! My heart is so heavy. I LOVE YOU SISTER!!”

Charmayne leaves behind her husband, Danish producer Carsten Soulshock and their son.

<![CDATA[Kim Kardashian: Selfies are 'ridiculous' ]]> http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news/165801/Kim-Kardashian-admits-selfies-are-ridiculous- Kim Kardashian has opened up her about her unhealthy obsession with, well herself. The undisputed queen of reality television has admitted that while her selfie addiction is ‘;ridiculous' they're not going to ]]> Kim Kardashian has opened up her about her unhealthy obsession with, well herself. The undisputed queen of reality television has admitted that while her selfie addiction is ‘;ridiculous' they're not going to stop any time soon as she loves sharing her life with fans.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who recently celebrated hitting 27 million Instagram followers with a picture of her butt, as you do, spilled all to Adweek magazine while promoting her new book - a book full of all her selfies.

"So many people think that taking so many selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what's so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories. I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people-that's who I've been.

“I live my life on a reality show,” the 34-year-old mother of baby North West explains. "But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it's ridiculous. I'm kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it's all fun. I can look at a photo on social media and see a picture and know exactly where I was by the outfit I had on or who I was with. I take it more as a fun, emotional scrapbook that I love to look back on.”

Kim Kardashina admits selfies are "ridiculous" (Adweek)

So will there ever be a day when we don't see Mrs. West flaunt her trademark bottom on social media? "You never know. I love sharing my world with people, so I don't see me just having a freak-out and just stopping. Will I do it forever? I'm not sure. But I love the whole idea of it, especially because you get to share things your way. You get to tell your own story through your eyes.”

Unless Kim's life story is one big belie (butt-selfie) then we're not sure we're going to jump on board with this one. Whatever, Kim's Instagram gives us hours of amusement so we would't have it any other way.

While spilling all on her new book of selfies, Kim kind of makes out that she's the next Annie Leibovitz, telling the mag: "[I took] my first selfie in 1984, and that opens up the book. For a decade, I've carried a big digital camera, and I think it's just fascinating to see the process of what types of photos evolve. Mine started off on digital cameras, then they went to a BlackBerry and then a smartphone. There's just such an evolution of the selfie. And I captured that, I think, really well.”

Kim also admitted , amid rumours that the female Kardashians have signed a lucrative deal worth almost $100 million for four more season of KUWTK, the star assured we've got plenty more on-screen family drama on the way. "We always say when it gets to be really crazy and not fun anymore, we don't want to do it. And we haven't gotten there yet.”

Last week the Kardashian and her husband Kanye West caused all sorts of commotion during their stay in London. Kanye was in town to perform at last week's Brit Awards, although ITV ended up muting every other word, while his wife failed to take a selfie with Ant and Dec.

You might be thinking, ‘;Well, I sipped champagne on my 21st birthday?' but did you enjoy it on your own private island? Probably not, as Biebs celebrated the milestone birthday with a group of friends on an isolated Caribbean island near Grenada.

Models Hailey Baldwin and Yovanna Ventura, who have both been romantically linked to the singer in the past, were among those in attendance as guests at the exclusive bash, with both posting photos with the birthday boy on Instagram. One photo, posted by Ventura, saw her and the As Long As You Love Me crooner looking pretty intimate as Justin pulled her leg around him as she sprawled her arms around his chest. Another photo, shared by Baldwin, saw her indulge in a cosy selfie with the heartthrob as they partied the night away.

Bieber, who recently faced rumours he was dating model Naomi Campbell, shared a number of photos from the soiree on the social networking site himself, including one which saw Ventura giving the singer a peck on the cheek, though later deleted the image. Other guests included his father Jeremy Bieber and his close friend Ryan Butler.

TMZ even obtained a video of the lavish proceedings. The short clip showed the youngster, who clearly lost his shirt as he partied into the early hours of Sunday morning, dancing and popping bottles while party guests waved the biggest sparklers we've ever seen in time to 50 Cent's ‘;In Da Club'. The track definitely fit the occasion with lyrics like, “It's your birthday, we gon' party like it's yo birthday”.

Sadly for Justin, there was one important person who couldn't make the celebration, no, not his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, but his longtime manager and close friend Scooter Braun. The talent manager, who discovered Bieber on YouTube when he was a young teen, recently welcomed a new son so chose to remain at home, though he did leave the singer a cute birthday message on Instagram. "“Where did the time go? Happy birthday my guy. Big 21. I don't remember mine. Haha. Have fun. Proud of u.”

It looks like the Canadian star, who has been lined up for a roasting on Comedy Central, certainly fulfilled Braun's wishes, who wouldn't have fun partying with their closest friends on a discreet Caribbean island? The birthday boy, looked to be in great spirits as he tweeted a series of birthday tweets during the party. “Grateful to be alive!!! Love u!!! 21,” he wrote, before posting another message just minutes later, “I love everybody! #21,” the tweet read.

The eccentric pop star, who recently confirmed her engagement to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney, was carried in by her dashing fiance along with thousands of other brave folks, with others dressed in costumes, or Gaga's day-to-day wardrobe.

Gaga covered up in a black Chicago Fire shirt, while her daredevil squeeze jumped in topless for the fundraiser benefiting the Special Olympics. The Born This Way hit maker later tried her best to describe just how freezing those waters were to her legion of 5.9 million Little Monsters on Instagram."My weave froze!!" the songstress wrote alongside a picture of her hunky main man, who lead the way after their dip. "Taylor gave me his hat I thought my wig was gonna freeze into and become one with the lake.”

She later shared the same photo with the caption: “Feels so good to do things for a good cause like the Special Olympics. It's great donate money, but also great to donate a gesture of love for those who deserve to be showered with it."

Other A-list participants included Vince Vaughn who took time out from filming the second series of True Detective to face the icy waters, sporting a Chicago Blackhawks jersey and jeans. As he came out of the water, he told CBS that it was “fantastic”.

It's been a big week for Gaga, who not only dived into the torturous waters lining the North Avenue Beach, but performed an explosive Sound of Music medley at the 2015 Oscars exactly a week before. On Wednesday, February 25 it was also revealed that she will be making her debut in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story.
