Kanye West almost lost brownie points for misunderstanding fans
Kanye West only wanted to have all his fans stand up during his concert in Sydney, but little did he know that two members of the audience were physically unable to do so. One was wheelchair-bound and the other had a prosthetic leg. Was Yeezus understanding? No, not at first.

"I can't do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and shit." What, did you think only fully-abled bodies can appreciate your work and come to your concert, Kanye? To add to the ugly situation, other (also ignorant) fans started booing them.

It took a while for the rest of the audience to get the point through, and the Good Life singer had a bodyguard check on the two handicapped fans before he was satisfied. "If he's in a wheelchair, then it's fine," he said.

Stop trying to be Martha Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow. She doesn't like it
Home and living guru Martha Stewart has spoken, and it's not pretty. Her thoughts on actress and Goop founder, Gwyneth Paltrow, are straight-forward: "She just needs to be quiet. She's a movie star," Martha said. "If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart." Ouch!

The Martha-isms didn't stop there. Blake Lively, who recently launched Preserve, also got a few harsh words thrown at her by the 73-year-old. "I don't get the sense she's credible. She's enthusiastic, but she's not credible." Apply cold water to burn, although we think Blake would have a different remedy for that.

Lauren Conrad tied the knot in California
We don't mean this to be a Martha Stewart streak, but in rather unrelated news, Lauren Conrad got married to her boyfriend, William Tell. As expected, the reality star's bridesmaids wore dresses from her Paper Crown wedding collection. Here's the bride and her entourage at their Martha Stewart Weddings photoshoot.

To add to what must have been a total fairytale occasion, you should also know that Lauren and William went on a blind date set up by friends on Valentine's in 2012. Perfect couple is perfect.

An Amy Winehouse statue has been erected at the Stables Market in Camden, London
English singer-songwriter, Amy Winehouse has been honoured with a statue of herself on what would have been her thirty-first birthday. Bouffant 'do? Check. Piercing above her lip? Check.

Fans gathered at the location to watch the unveiling, which was also attended by her parents. Amy died from alcohol intoxication in mid-2011 but has always been remembered for her soulful vocals and diverse blend of musical genres.

Paris Hilton's new dog costs way more than your monthly salary
His name is Mr Amazing, and by golly, he is the tiniest thing you've ever seen – short of a hamster, maybe. Or krill. Meet Paris Hilton's new pooch, a teacup Pomeranian her other dogs could eat in a mouthful.

Paris reportedly dished out $13,000 to buy Amazing from Betty's Teacup Yorkies in Calgary, Canada. The five month-old, 300-gram, living, breathing, animal plushie will be flown to his new LA home soon to experience the simple life with the hotel heiress.
