The Kanye/Kimmel Feud Comes to an End, Miley Cyrus Still Has Critics, Jennifer Lawrence Is Still Awesome, and Meatballs Steal the Weekend Box Office

Oh Kanye! The latest news on the Kanye/ Kimmel feud is that it may be over. The rapper deleted more than a dozen Twitter rants about Kimmel after the talk-show host hired child actors to spoof his BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe. Unfortunately Ye may not realize that there are copies of his tweets all over the interwebs. So, on the one hand, we definitely think West should consider keeping some of his thoughts to himself. But on the other hand, doesn't the best hashtag ever — #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK — make the whole thing worthwhile?
Speaking of enough already, will we ever stop hearing about Miley’s MTV VMA performance? Probably not. The latest star to have weighed in on the incident is Ed Sheeran. The singer told the Daily Mirror he thought she set a poor example to her fans with the performance stating: "I think encouraging young people to twerk might be a bad thing” and "It's a stripper's move. If I had a daughter of mine, I wouldn't want her twerking." He also said that while he thinks she’s talented she’s going about it the wrong way (ya think!?).
One person who we don’t want to hear less of is the Oscar-winning beauty Jennifer Lawrence. THR reports that The Hunger Games star will shoot a cameo for the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels sequel Dumb and Dumber To. Lawrence will reportedly play the younger version of Kathleen Turner’s character.
And the weekend box office results are in: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 took first place with $35 million. While it had zero family-flick competition it still earned around $5 million more than its predecessor. Other movie debuts that made the top five included Rush, Baggage Claim and Don Jon. Considering the specific subject matter Rush's $10.4 million was fairly reasonable. The Paula Patton romantic comedy Baggage Claim had a middling start with $9.3 million, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's writing/directorial debutDon Jon rounded out the top five with $9 million.
