"The Voice" and "X Factor" will compete for viewers this fall, that’s no secret. But NBC just played a wild card and announced a late tweak to their schedule, adding a third episode of "The Voice" for next Wednesday night at 8:00pm. That’s when "X Factor's" season premiere will be airing on Fox. As you can imagine, Simon Cowell was not pleased. He said, "This is a cynical, cold-hearted, unprofessional way of doing business. It's nothing short of dirty tricks. The reason they've done this is they don't want their audience to see Britney Spears. They don't want their audience to see Demi Lovato."
If your girlfriend got famous from a leaked sex tape with another guy, would you brag about it? Kanye West did. In a new track called "Clique", Kanye says, "Ate breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie." That's obviously a reference to Kim Kardashian’s sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray-J, "Kim K Superstar"It'll be on Kanye's next album, "Cruel Summer".
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian was on “The View” yesterday and ironically referred to Kanye West as her “perfect match.” She added, "I definitely think anything I'd be in now is a permanent relationship. I hope so. I believe so."
