A record for “The Walking Dead”… Kendall and Kylie Jenner get backlash… Nominees for American Music Awards announced… Drake’s new girlfriend… and Amanda Bynes is FURIOUS with her parents
Ratings for “The Walking Dead” were through the roof Sunday night. A record 17.3 million people tuned in for the season opener on AMC, which was up 7 percent compared to Season 4’s first episode. “The Walking Dead” even beat out “Sunday Night Football” by more than 2.5 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic that advertisers love so much. And if you’re a huge “Gotham” fan, you’ll be happy to know that Fox has ordered 6 more episodes, bringing the series order to a full 22.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner appearing on Time Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 list quickly created a backlash. Time put the Jenner sisters 17th on the list, ranking them higher than the youngest person to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize, 17-year-old Malala Yousafzai (18th) and the leader of Hong Kong’s civil disobedience movement, 18-year-old Joshua Wong (21st). Mortified teens like @KelssssLynn lashed out on Twitter, “If I live in a world where Time names Kendall & Kylie Jenner as the most influential ppl of 2014 I don’t want to be a part of it any longer.” And @ellaohno tweeted, “how can you compare Kylie Jenner to Malala Yousafzai looool.”

Drake and his entourage were stuck in St. Martin over the weekend because of Hurricane Gonzalo and they couldn’t help but cause a little bit of trouble. Drake was on the Caribbean island to film a music video for rapper P. Reign’s new song, “DnF.” Drake was so excited about it that he threw a single release party for P. Reign Friday night at Tantra nightclub. Page Six is reporting that Drake was there with his new girlfriend, Lira Galore. Page Six says she’s a “video vixen” and by her name, you can guess what line of work she’s in…..Anyway, Page Six is reporting that at the club, P. Reign hooked up with a girl who brought a group of her girlfriends to hang with them in a VIP room. It turns out these girl and some of her friends weren’t exactly single. They were there with their husbands and boyfriends! After P. Reign allegedly took one of the women back to Drake’s $20K-a-night villa, her boyfriend got so jealous that he trashed his OWN hotel room, doing $5000 in damages. He was also arrested.
