Kim Kardashian: Paris Hilton jealous of her friend's success?
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon sightseeing tour of the pop-culture world comes up with snapshots of friends feuding, a golden band, other things, and the mystery music video.
PARIS WHO?: Is she a Kardashian?, per Radar, “Fading star Paris Hilton is jealous of her former friend Kim Kardashian's ever growing career success and A-list boyfriend, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. (They ran into each other several) times last week during the Cannes International Film Festival and the former Simple Life star has since been lamenting to friends that she can't stand her one-time pal's flourishing television career and the attention Kardashian is getting from dating Kanye West.” http://bit.ly/MVq5Lw
PET SOUNDS: They never get old, per the Los Angeles Times, “Brian Wilson officially quit as a touring member of the Beach Boys in the mid-1960s and has only been on stage periodically with the band since. As for an album together? It’s been decades. But this week Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks stop at the Hollywood Bowl for a 50th anniversary tour which kicked off last month in Arizona.” http://lat.ms/LaLk7S
MADONNA: She’s quite coy during a performance, per the Huffington Post, “The queen of pop was performing "Express Yourself" at a rehearsal in Tel Aviv, Israel when she suddenly trotted out a cover of "Born This Way." Of course, the two tracks blended seamlessly. Though she stayed mum on Gaga's song for some time after its release, Madge eventually said she felt the single was "reductive" and undoubtedly influenced by her earlier work.” http://huff.to/LC51bp
MEANWHILE: Gaga a no-go, per the AP, “Lady Gaga told fans she was "devastated" at having to cancel her sold-out show in Indonesia following threats by Islamic hard-liners, who called her a "devil worshipper." http://apne.ws/K8yxXw
THE ROYALS: They keep on keepin’ on, per the New York Times, “Next week, after the confetti from Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebration has been swept from the streets of London, more than 100 scholars will convene at Kensington Palace to ponder a phenomenon as puzzling as it is familiar: the robust survival of the British monarchy in a democratic age that long ago consigned similar institutions to the gilded dustbin of history.” http://nyti.ms/Jyx9gd
MEANWHILE: Missing Mom, per People, “Despite the overabundance of dignitaries in attendance on his 2011 wedding day to Kate Middleton, there was one person missing, though very much on Prince William's mind: his mother, Princess Diana. "Very difficult" is how the prince recalls her absence that day, as he reveals during an ABC interview airing Tuesday night, as part of The Jubilee Queen with Katie Couric.” http://bit.ly/LbmhBI
BUMMER OPENING: When a would-be blockbuster goes bust, per The Hollywood Reporter, “Despite a $203.2 million worldwide opening, the jury's still out on whether Will Smith threequel Men in Black 3 can recoup its $230 million production budget and hefty marketing spend. The Sony tentpole grossed a modest $70 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend in North America, compared with the $75 million to $80 million that the studio was anticipating (rivals thought the film would do $90 million to $100 million).” http://bit.ly/KXQDap
SOUL FOOD: Never gets old, per Us Weekly, “Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, 37, showed off her bangin' bikini body via Twitter in Cancun, Mexico May 28. Joined by husband Josh Duhamel, 39, Fergie flaunted major cleavage and proudly displayed her rock hard abs in a printed two-piece.” http://bit.ly/Kq2NMm
CLIP & SAVE: But you may need a passport, per Pitchfork, “Summer is finally here, which means festival season is in full swing. Across the globe, there are more fests than ever before-- how do you choose? Here, we've assembled a list of our 20 best bets for 2012, 10 in North America and 10 in Europe.” http://bit.ly/JKUU5U
OLD NEWS: So says Justin Bieber, per E!, “The pop star and girlfriend Selena Gomez have both spoken out in the wake of their headline-grabbing encounter with paparazzi over the weekend, with Gomez thanking fans for sticking by her, and Bieber breaking his silence on the alleged altercation and promising his loyal base that he's staying committed to "the important stuff." http://eonli.ne/M2u0ai
NEW DISC: Coming this fall, per Rolling Stone, “Mumford & Sons confirmed that their second album will released on September 24th in an interview conducted by 3FM backstage at the Pinkpop festival in Belgium yesterday. "We finished the record this week," says multi-instrumentalist Ben Lovett. "We hope to get it out in September. We just figured that out, September 24th." http://bit.ly/L03JYI
