Kanye West has had an active couple of weeks, no matter how you slice it. His head, that is, which he dinged (dung?) when he walked into a stop sign during an evening perambulation with his pregnant amourette, Kim Kardashian. A paparazzo snapped a snap of the man-sign interaction, and Kanye ended up ranting in the street. Meantime, his Lamborghini got scraped up, awww, when Kim's gate closed a little too quickly on it as a repair guy delivered it after servicing. Meantime, Kanye has dropped his new album, Yeezus, with dark, twisted new tunes. Meantime, former Kim bf Reggie Bush is now the daddy of baby Briseis, by fiancée Lilit Avagyan. He tells Life & Style mag that no Kardashians have kongratulated him, so he won't be reaching out when Kim has her baby, nya-nya-nya.
Star Trek Into Darkness boldly went to the top of the box-office charts over the weekend, according to studio estimates. It raked in $70.56 million in its first weekend, more than doubling the $35.18 mils set by previous leader Iron Man 3. That ends Iron Man 3's three-week domination, but it wasn't quite the hoped-for $100 million four-day opening. The Great Gatsby was in place position, with $23.4 mils. From there, the top 10 really falls off a cliff: (4) Pain and Gain, $3.1 mils; (5) The Croods, $2.75 mils; (6) 42, with $2.73 mils; (7) Oblivion, $2.2 mils; (8) Mud, $2.16 mils; (9) Tyler Perry Presents Peeples, $2.15 mils; and (10) The Big Wedding, $1.1 mils.
