Cudi received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from fans about the album and responded to them by tweeting, “Are we enjoying the ride everyone? I am! I love u all so much, I do it all for u, forever. We are one! Cud Fam!!”

Sightings (Bekah Haynes):

Lorde and Taylor Swift were seen shopping at several stores in Los Angeles this past Sunday afternoon. Although the two singers are undeniably different when it comes to style and music, Lorde shared with Capital FM radio her desire to work with Swift and possibly do a duet with the country star in the near future.

Kim Kardashian was seen in New York supporting fiance Kanye West at the last concert of his Yeezus Tour. She was spotted in the crowd along with her sister Kourtney and her mother, Kris Jenner. The day before the concert, the two lovebirds were seen hand-in-hand as they walked around the Big Apple. Their daughter North was not seen with them.

Romance (Brooke Schlyer):

It looks as if another Hollywood marriage is over.  “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke and his actress wife Paula Patton are divorcing after nine years of marriage, according to Eonline. The couple released a joint statement saying, “We will always love each other and be best friends; however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”

We just hope the two can stay best friends for the sake of the son they have together.

While Thicke and Patton’s relationship might be over, it seems a new romance is in the air.  Actor Josh Brolin and his “assistant,” Kathryn Boyd were caught displaying some public affection in Rome on Feb. 23, according to People magazine. Brolin was previously married to actress Diane Lane.
