ICYMI: Kanye West gave one of the most epic radio interviews with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe, that led to an equally-as-epic spoof from Jimmy Kimmel starring a hilarious kid, that in turn sparked Kimmel’s first “rap feud.” And I was front row for it all. [Variety]

It’s Britney, b____! You want a hot body like Britney Spears in the sneak peak of her new video? You want a Bugatti like that one she summoned to the Vegas desert for her latest hit? Well, say it with me, “you better work!” [Instagram]

Meryl Streep and Katie Holmes will be seeing Red on the set of their next film. Taylor Swift has been cast alongside the two actresses for a supporting role in the film adaptation of Lois Lowry‘s The Giver. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Say it ain’t so: Hugh Jackman hinted that his days as the Wolverine may be coming to an end. “Great parts always outgrow the actors that play them. If you forget that, it’s at your own peril,” he said during the 61st San Sebastian International Film Festival. “They are working on it [X-Men] now and it would have to be very compelling for me to do it again. I’ve been doing it for 10 years.” [The Hollywood Reporter]
