Kanye West launches line of scarves

Kanye West has always been a fan of scarves and now he can wear his own.

British paper The Daily Mail is reporting that the rap star has entered into a collaboration with the French design partnership M/M (Paris) for a line of risque scarves inspired by the cover of his album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."

"Artist George Condo's original work for the album cover, which featured a nude portrait of the artist with a female beast on top of him, was allegedly banned from stores last autumn for being too racy," the paper reports.

Lady Gaga's 'Judas' video: What's the verdict?

Considering the roads Lady Gaga’s music videos have led us down before, it's understandable if you were bracing for something outlandish for "Judas." Especially since there was controversy before it even debuted yesterday.

The 25-year-old stars in a biker version of Judas’ betrayal of Jesus as a lipstick gun-wielding Mary Magdalene of sorts, but E! seems to be on to something when they describe the video as more traditional than ones past. (Call us jaded if you must.)

Of course, there’s religious imagery a-plenty, and Gaga explained to MTV that “This video has not meant to be an attack on religion,” she says of the content. “I respect and love everyone’s beliefs. I’m a religious and spiritual person who’s obsessed with religious art. I’m obsessed with it.”

Olivia Wilde opens up on the end of her marriage

If Olivia Wilde looks like she's having a ball with her co-stars in her movies, that part's probably not an act.

"I’ve been lucky to have chemistry with my co-stars, and I really enjoy pretend kissing," Wilde, who has worked with Justin Timberlake ("Now"), Ryan Reynolds ("The Change-Up") and Daniel Craig ("Cowboys & Aliens"), tells the June issue of Glamour. "If you’re pretending to love each other, you’ve got to find something to fall in love with."

In real life, however, her romantic life has been more rocky. In February, Wilde announced that she and her Italian prince hubby Ruspoli were separating after eight years of marriage.

Angelina Jolie: My toughest critics? My kids

One person who won't enjoy Angelina Jolie's performance as Tigress in "Kung Fu Panda 2"? The actress herself, who admits that she can't stand the way she sounds on screen.

"You know, when you hear your own voice, you can find it quite boring and uninteresting," she tells USA Today. "Suddenly, you get very shy that your voice is not enough, because I'm not musical and I don't know my voice."

Jolie admits that her six kids can sometimes be just as critical.

ABC bleeps bin Laden joke...but not in Canada

Osama bin Laden has been the topic of the week, but one ABC show had to rethink their approach to the conversation.

Although the network's program “Happy Endings" did air a bit of a joke about the deceased al Qaeda leader in the "Of Mice and Jazz-Kwon Do" episode, ABC opted to silence part of it. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the episode  had been shot weeks before the news of bin Laden hit.

In the scene, two of the show’s stars, Elisha Cuthbert and Zach Knighton, were talking about a mouse in Cuthbert's character's apartment that Knighton’s character hadn’t been able to catch.
