COULD BE TRUE, COULD BE CRAP - KANYE WEST BUYS ARMORED CARS TO PROTECT KIM AND BABY: KANYE WEST is so worried about the security of Kim Kardashian and daughter North that he reportedly just bought two SUVs that are fully-armored and cost a million bucks each. Oh, and customers have the option of a leather interior made from whale penis! (PHOTO)
The company that makes the vehicle says it's inspired by the President’s Limo One, and is “built to withstand attacks from landmines and rocket-propelled grenades.” Because that's exactly what you need driving around the streets of California. Hey, you never know when you'll run into Chris Brown or Justin Bieber!
Word is 'Ye decided to increase security at the recommendation of his buddy Jay-Z. He has also hired two bodyguards and plans to use body doubles as decoys for paparazzi.
Meanwhile ... A source tells Us Weekly a Kimye "wedding is in the works." And in keeping with their lavish lifestyle, it's going to be big. Another insider says that Kanye "wants something really cool and big and over-the-top" for his first trip down the aisle -- though he's stopping short of televising the celebration.
Who do you think will be the bigger bridezilla -- him or her? Yeah, me too.
KATY PERRY AND RIHANNA ARE FRIENDS AGAIN:You can breathe a sigh of relief, America. All signs point to KATY PERRY and RIHANNA being friends again.
Katy had supposedly given up on Rihanna earlier this year because she kept messing with CHRIS BROWN. But it looks like they've hashed everything out, because on Monday night they had dinner together in New York City. Rihanna later posted this picture of herself and Katy along with the hashtags "KatyAnna" and "RIHunited"
CELEBRITY DO GOODERS - JUSTIN BIEBER: JUSTIN BIEBER has definitely showed his propensity to be a d-bag a lot in the last few months, but that doesn't mean he's total punk. He does do some good every now and then, so it's only fair he gets his due props.
This past weekend, Justin granted his 200th wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The lucky kid was an eight-year-old girl named Annalysha with a liver disorder who met and interviewed Justin backstage at his concert in Atlanta this past Saturday.
Annalysha asked him about his favorite Justin Bieber song, his favorite kind of sandwich, then asked him if he would marry her. Bieb got down on his knee and proposed to her instead.
WATCH FOOTAGE FROM THE BIEBER BAR BRAWL: Last week we told you about how Justin's thug bodyguards were involved in a bar brawl and that cops in Southampton, New York are investigating whether Justin ordered the attack.
While that hasn't been determined yet, security camera footage of the chaos has been released. Here's the E! News report. Pay particular attention towards the end when Bieb jumps out of the sunroof of his SUV all bad ass. Too funny.
COVER SHOT: We know SHAKIRA'S hips don't lie, and neither do her abs. Shak's on the cover of Self magazine showing off her post-baby bod. (She gave birth to her first child, Milan, in January)
HALLE BERRY, JENNIFER GARNER LOBBY FOR ANTI PAPARAZZI REGULATIONS: Two big-name Hollywood actresses, HALLE BERRY and JENNIFER GARNER, were in the California capital lobbying for stricter laws against the paparazzi. The California legislature is considering more stringent harassment laws, which would apply to pointing a camera lens near children.
Even worse, according to Halle’s testimony, is the verbal barrage. The photographers need explosive emotions in each picture, and will regularly provoke or taunt their subjects for good effect. However, Halle says it’s gone too far when one paparazzo asked her young daughter, “How do you feel about never seeing your father again?” And start the waterworks.
Garner told the politicians yesterday, “I chose a public life but my three children are private citizens. I don’t want a gang of lawbreaking photographers to continue traumatizing my kids.”
On another Jennifer Garner note ... Have you ever wondered why Jennifer and BEN AFFLECK are rarely seen together at public events? In an interview with Allure, Garner explained that it's by design. "He’s such a great date, but it can be too much. I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become 'wife of.'"
