This isn’t the sisters’ first literary endeavor; they recently made their debut as contributors to Seventeen magazine.
The Jenners are following in the footsteps of older siblings Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, who published a roman á clef called “Dollhouse” in 2011.

Swedish House Mafia have confirmed they will split at the end of their next tour. The dance supergroup that is made up of DJs Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell has announced that they will go their separate ways to pursue their separate careers. following a final string of gigs in August.
The Swedish House Mafia broke the news last weekend stating, “We came, we raved, we loved,” “We want to thank every single one of you that came with us on this journey,” they wrote. “The tour we are about to go on will be our last.” Axwell, Ingrosso and Angello began performing together in 2008. They released seven singles, including four top 10 UK hits, and also saw huge success in the United States and they brought their heartstopping live show to Australia only a few months ago as part of the Future Music Festival tour.
Tinie Tempah, who worked with Swedish House Mafia on the hit Miami 2 Ibiza, said the group’s decision was “such a shame”. “They came together to create something that was really incredible,” he told BBC Newsbeat. “All the guys are talented geniuses.” Writing on Twitter, Ingrosso waxed poetic: “It’s better to burn out,” he wrote, “than fade away.”
Spotted @ Future Ent. ; such talented guys; this is disappointing but hey, you gottta do what you gotta do I guess. xo @RozOonTheGo
Unpacking a slew of hits for all of Hollywood to see, Katy Perry kicked off Pepsi and Billboard’s “Summer Beats” live series with a special performance on Thursday night (June 26). Perry’s eight-song set was delivered as part of the U.S. premiere event for her revealing new Paramount Pictures film, “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” which hits theaters on July 5.
"Hollywood, I’m gonna be your teenage dream tonight!" Perry told the raucous crowd on Hollywood Boulevard before launching into the title track of her best-selling sophomore album. Sporting a top that resembled an unspooled film reel, Perry emerged from a giant box of popcorn and strutted around a stage that sparkled with neon lights, overgrown lollipops and more-than-game backup dancers.
Prior to the performance, the singer talked about the filming of “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” which chronicles her rise to fame as well as her California Dreams world tour in 2011. “I hope that it inspires people to absolutely live out their dreams, no matter what obstacles they might face,” said Perry.

CONGRATS Cordell! And I better not hear anyone saying he doesn’t deserve it because Calvin is his Dad! These kids work hard and these colleges wouldn’t be offering scholarships if they didn’t! Point blank, period! Bravo to UCLA for not allowing the media to alter their scholarship decisions. xo @RozOonTheGo
Already listed at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds entering his sophomore season at Diamond Bar High School, Cordell Broadus has made a name for himself playing wide receiver and defensive back.
Of course, he was already well recognized as the son of rapper Snoop Dogg.
But now, he may start being noticed more for his on-field skills than his father as UCLA became the first school to offer him a scholarship, USA Today reported.
Broadus played for the freshman team last year.
“We’re expecting him to really lead us the next three years,” Diamond HS head coach Ryan Maine told ESPNLA. “Hopefully (our athletes) get bigger, stronger and keep leading this team.”
"Pretty much every day, there’s a moment where I’m having to pinch myself and think, ‘When did this happen to my life?’" she says. "What I really love about music is that, despite all this craziness the creative process remains the same. And that same exciting feeling that I had before anybody knew me, when I was just beginning to work on ‘Call Me Maybe,’ is the same feeling I had today with RedFoo from LMFAO. You can sense the people who really have it are about writing that right word or that right melody to make it lift and make you feel that perfect emotion."
BILLBOARD Weekly Charts: Usher, Bieber, LMFAO, GroupLove:
This week, Usher enters atop the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with “Looking 4 Myself” and logs a 10th week at No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with “Climax.”
Usher, famously, was instrumental in launching the career of Justin Bieber. After Scooter Braun became Bieber’s manager, he invited Bieber to sing for Usher. The result? The then-13-year-old Bieber joined Usher and Braun’s Raymond Braun Media Group and began his rapid ascent to pop culture prominence. Currently in the Billboard Hot 100's top 10 for a 12th week with former No. 2 hit “Boyfriend,” Bieber is set to make the year's splashiest bow on next week’s Billboard 200 with his third studio album, “Believe.”
Now, Bieber can take partial credit for the No. 1 song on the Hot 100. His viral video of Carly Rae Jepsen's “Call Me Maybe” - co-starring Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, the clip has racked more than 43 million YouTube views - and an endorsement of the song to his more than 20 million Twitter followers helped propel the song up the chart and on its way to No. 1.
KID INK, ILL WILL Talk 'Up & Away' Album + Chart Success:
When Kid Ink first met his manager, DJ Ill Will, CEO of Tha Alumni Music Group, in June 2010, the Los Angeles producer/artist was simply “dabbling” in rapping. At the time, neither one had any idea that Ink’s first album would make a splash on the Billboard charts.
This week, the 26-year-old’s introductory album, “Up & Away” (Tha Alumni Music Group), debuts at No. 20 on the Billboard 200, No. 3 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 2 on Top Rap Albums. The set sold 20,000 in its first week, with 97% of sales coming from downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
In just two years, Ink built a buzz through a grass-roots movement including touring, merchandise and self-produced online projects. The rapper has released three mixtapes — “Crash Landing” (2010), “Daydreamer” (2011) and “Wheels Up” (2011) — and collaborated with notable names like Chris Brown and Meek Mill without compensation. Ill Will, who spent five years working with Brown and others, also helped Ink’s climb to the top. All of Ink’s official videos are uploaded to Ill Will’s YouTube channel, which has garnered close to 133 million views.
