While you were preparing to party

Today's news you might have missed:

He took to Twitter to give his review in which he found the movie to be "Visually impressive w/ great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers." Le ouch. [Adam Lambert's Twitter]
  • Jenny McCarthy wants your help in deciding who she should smooch the New Year in with. She's taking suggestions from fans on who to lock lips with when the clock strikes midnight. Anyone, anyone? [People]

Let's start the Kardashian, West baby name game

Let's start the Kardashian, West baby name game

You knew we wouldn't wait long for this.

Sure, it's only been a few hours since Kanye West announced that he and Kim Kardashian are having a baby, but there's no time like the present to start conceiving baby names for the couple (see what we just did there?).

We doubt they will go with "Kimye" since that moniker is already taken. So what do you think they should go for?

"Kanye Omari West, Jr." if it's a boy? "Kris" in honor of Kim's momanger who has played such a key role in her career? Last year Kourtney Kardashian's son Mason's name was third on the Baby Center's list of most popular names so perhaps the couple might want to consult that guide.

What are some of your ideas for names for baby Kimye? Sound off!
