In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, the world gets a Kanye West with pugs calendar and Harry Potter fans get more huge and exciting news!
HIT: Adele is honoured with a British award
The MBE medal, which stands for Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, was awarded to Adele at Buckingham Palace from none other than Prince Charles. It is given to those who are deemed exemplary British subjects, but specifically for Adele’s “services to music.” She totally deserves it!
MISS: Khloé Kardashian files for divorce from Lamar Odom
Even though we saw it coming, due to Lamar’s alleged drug use and his awful and degrading rap, it’s still kind of sad. I actually quite liked Khloé and Lamar. They seemed like they were in love and had tons of fun on their show Khloé and Lamar, but hey, maybe it was all just for the show. Who knows? The couple dated for a month before they married in September 2009. Fast forward four years – no baby for Khloé, who filed for divorce this past week.
HIT: This Kanye West with Pugs calendar
Honestly, what more could you ask for? Sprinkle enjoyment throughout 2014 with photos of Kanye West hanging out with the cutest pugs. I want one, no, I need one! The Barcelona-based company Meet The Pugs, put this great idea together. Not only have they photoshopped Kanye doing random but fun activities with these adorable pups, they’ve also managed to include some of the rapper’s most famous quotes. More than 1000 people pledged $22,706 to the Kickstarter project just to see the calendar actually happened. So random, so genius.
MISS: Demi Lovato is leaving the X-Factor
Simon Cowell said he knew Demi would be leaving because she’ll soon be busy with her upcoming Neon Lights tour. He also said the door is open for the future, so maybe after her tour and hopefully a new album, she’ll be back. We’ll miss her her judging skills; she was always so sweet, honest and the only person who could out-sass Simon.
HIT: Harry Potter is getting a prequel — in the form of a play!
J.K. Rowling has never worked on a stage play before, but who cares?! We’re just overly thrilled that there’s more Harry Potter to come! The play will revolve around his years as the Dursleys’ orphaned ward before he began attending the prestigious Hogwarts and J.K. Rowling is set to produce it. The play will reportedly be staged in London, but hopefully it’ll make its way to Broadway (road trip to NYC because I can’t wait for it to come to Toronto)!
MISS: Selena Gomez Cancels Tour Of Asia, Australia To “Spend Some Time On Myself”
As much as we want her to feel her best, it feels like this couldn’t come at a worse time. Is it a coincidence that Justin Bieber just announced he also wants to take a break?! WHY? Selena canceled 13 Asia and Australia dates from the end her Stars Dance Tour. “I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be,” she said in a statement. “To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”
