Is Kylie Jenner trying to make it official??
There's no way she wasn't sending him... and the world... a message!
Hulk Hogan has won big in his lawsuit against Gawker Media… but that doesn't mean he isn't overwhelmed by it all.
In his first interview since winning his lengthy legal battle against the controversial website, the WWE athlete (born Terry Bollea) explained how he was overcome with emotion when the final verdict was read.
In case you forgot, Hogan was awarded with $140 million in compensatory and punitive damages after the 62-year-old sued Gawker for posting a video in 2012 that featured him having sex with his former best friend's wife. Yikes!
While talking to ABC News' Linzie Janis, he shared:
"[Gawker] was hoping that, financially, I wouldn't be able to stay in the game with them, and I'd quit or tap out or something. I felt like I had this monster on my shoulders no matter where I went."
Poor thing! The former wrestler even talked about breaking down in the courtroom saying:
Another day, another rant from Kanye West!
On Tuesday, Yeezy went on Twitter and completely emptied out the contents of his mind!
Among the topics discussed were the success of his Pablo pop-up shop — which he claims sold over $1 million worth of merchandise –, his ability to use social media as way to express himself, and his "dislike" of suit jackets!
The 38-year-old refrained from using the word "hate" because — in his own words — he hates "the word hate."
Compared to his other diatribes, this one was more optimistic yet scattered. Boy, we can only imagine what it's like to enter Mr. West's brain!

There are a LOT of disappointed Beliebers out there right now.
On Tuesday, Justin Bieber announced that he's canceling his meet and greets for his Purpose World Tour. Bkstg, the company in charge of the pop powerhouse's backstage experiences, explained that this perk has been removed from the $925 I'll Show You package for security reasons.
The business explained in an FAQ:
"During a recent show, there was a security incident that caused our team to have to meet and re-think how meet and greets were handled. This is a new tour with new venues almost every night and still a changing process, but we have decided that for the time being this is our best course of action. We are letting everyone affected know, are offering refunds, and are also offering the alternative of a VIP hangout where both pics and videos can be taken of Justin, just no longer a group picture with him."
However, if fans want to be refunded, they WILL lose their tickets to the show. Bkstg added:
"Please note there are no partial refunds, so you would also be forfeiting your ticket in exchange for your money back."
Well, THAT certainly doesn't seem fair. It also isn't clear if those $2,000 selfies with the Biebs for the Ultimate Purpose Experience will be affected.
While we don't know the details about the apparent security scare, the soulful singer has taken to Instagram to address the personal reason why he won't be meeting his fans.
He shared a sweet snap of himself with a young fun, but interestingly enough didn't say anything about safety concerns.
Instead, he said that meet and greets left him "drained," explaining:
Some people would empty out their bank accounts to rub elbows with a celebrity…
But THIS much?!
Over the weekend, Reese Witherspoon announced she is going to speak at the Simpatico Conference — a two-day program featuring educational workshops and keynote speaker sessions — throughout several cities in Australia.
However, the chance to sit in the same room as the Legally Blonde actress is going to cost you a pretty penny!
Tickets for the event start at $2000! Holy crap!
However, if you want a photo with the blonde beauty, that's going to cost you an additional $1K!
According to managing director Jacqueline Nagle:
"Reese Witherspoon embodies the philosophy of The Simpatico Conference. She is talented, intelligent, passionate, diverse and committed to making a difference… She's producing films with strong female roles and earning Oscar nods, she's successfully launched a deeply personal retail range, and she is an advocate for Girls Inc. and their commitment to helping young women become entrepreneurs."

Nick Denton is NOT backing down!
On Tuesday, the blog's founder wrote a lengthy post on his website where he plans to fight the verdict.
"Emotion was permitted to trump the law, and key evidence and witnesses were kept from the jury. We have had our day in trial court, and we lost. We will have our day back in appeals court, and we will be vindicated."
The 49-year-old journalist believes the case wasn't so much about the wrestler's sex life; it was about the racial slurs Hogan said in the footage.
"Hogan filed the claim because he was terrified that one of the other tapes, which memorialized his rant about his daughter dating "fucking n***ers," might emerge. As I have come to learn, Hogan himself put it in a text message to his best friend… days after we published our story: ‘We know there's more than one tape out there and a one that has several racist slurs were told. I have a [pay-per-view special] and I am not waiting for anymore surprises….' I had suspicions, but it is now clear that Hogan's lawsuit was a calculated attempt to prevent Gawker, or anyone else who might obtain evidence of his racism, from publishing a truth more interesting and more damaging than a revelation about his sex life."'
The British writer believes the trial was one-sided from the start.
"The plaintiff's lawyers, with the occasional assist from our witnesses, successfully painted Gawker as representative of an untrammeled internet that good and decent people should find frightening and distasteful."

Iggy Azalea has a few things to say!
We have an exclusive first look at the Aussie artist's Remix magazine cover (above), and she really opened up in the publication's pages about the serious shade that constantly seems to be thrown her way!
"The artists that criticise me don't have as much success as me, so I think it gets them riled up, because they're not selling as much as I am. I honestly think that's what it boils down to. There are some bones that people chose to pick with me they could've picked with a lot of other artists but they didn't, and the only thing besides maybe gender between them and I is the level of success I have."
Damn! IggyIggs sure knows how to stand up for herself!
But if you thought that jab was hurtful, the success shade continues! She also added:
