Weekend News Roundup! Babies, Playboys, and Miss America


Happy Monday! Here’s our compendium of pop-culture news you mayhave missed while you were doing more important things over the weekend.

• Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl. No word yet on the child’s name or whether or not it is an immortal demigod. [E!]

• Speaking of demigods, Jay-Z announced he will release his 12th album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, on July 4th. Samsung Galaxy owners have the opportunity to download the album 72 hours in advance, but we’re pretty sure it will still sound cooler on an iPhone. [Guardian]

• A genetically blessed woman from Connecticut named Erin Brady, but who is not our writer Erin Brady, was crowned Miss USA. [E!]

• Channing Tatum revealed his impossibly adorable spawn, Everly, via Facebook. [People]

• Children of the ’90s rejoice! The Disney Channel announced they will be premiering Girl Meets World in 2014 and yes, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel (aka Corey and Topanga Matthews) will be starring as the parents of said girl. [Vulture]

• Kate Moss’ hairstylist revealed the model will cover the January issue of Playboy, which is fine by us. [NY Post]
