The epic Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks Twitter feud
The decisions to not indict the police officers responsible for the unrelated deaths of unarmed black men Eric Garner and Michael Brown have sparked outrage in the US, where the events occurred, and internationally, particularly because the police officers' actions were believed to be unwarranted and racist.
Rapper Azealia Banks took to Twitter to rant about the issue, strangely taking it out on Australian rapper Iggy Azalea for keeping silent amid the racial conflict. Here's how the 23-year-old started the fire.

Hey, Azealia. Being silent on Twitter doesn't mean one isn't aware of an issue. We'll get behind whatever Iggy said next.

Ouch, now that's a lesson to learn. Your real presence in the world means more than your virtual one on social media, so make it count.
What went on at Art Basel
Leonardo DiCaprio was a big spender at Art Basel this week, reportedly spending close to $1 million on a 1973 artwork by Frank Stella. The art show, hosted annually in Miami Beach and Hong Kong, exhibits modern and contemporary visual artworks by world-renowned artists. P. Diddy also did some art shopping, fishing out $95,000 for a 2011 Tracy Emin piece.
Among other celebrities spotted there were Michael Douglas, Owen Wilson, Tobey Maguire and Miley Cyrus. Miley wore nipple pasties (again) and smoked onstage (again) during her performance at the exhibition's opening night party on Wednesday. There are more glittery photos on her Instagram but it's hard to get through them all before our eyes roll the other way.
Nicki Minaj hints at having lost a child in her new song
All Things Go, a song from Nicki's upcoming album The Pinkprint has been leaked online. The track's lyrics reveal that the rapper almost had a child 16 years ago. Wishing that her lost child could have grown up with her younger brother Micaiah, Nicki rapped, "I want Caiah to go to college just to say we did it. My child with Aaron, would've have been 16 any minute. So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them. It's like he's Cai's little angel looking over him."
The 31-year-old also suggests that she was once engaged. "Ten years ago, that's when you proposed. I look down, yes I suppose."
The lyrics are thick with emotion and centre on Nicki's family issues, making it one of her most serious works. Listen to All Things Go before it gets taken down. The Pinkprint is scheduled for release on 15 December.
Another Kardashian kaptured nude for the kover of a magazine
Kim Kardashian's nude cover for Paper magazine has got a competitor; Kim's sister, Kourtney has just been featured on the digital cover of DuJour and she is – you guessed it – nude.
Showing off her baby bump, Kourtney looks as radiant as you'd expect. She also poses, er, semi-nude in other photos from the shoot. "To me, nudity is not something to be ashamed of. I'm at my best when I'm pregnant," the reality TV star wrote on Instagram.
