Trey Parker and Matt Stone just signed a new deal to continue “South Park” on Comedy Central through 2027, which would be its 30th season. The deal also includes 14 “South Park” movies that will be produced exclusively to the Paramount+ streaming service. Two of those will actually come out this year. Bloomberg News reports the deal is worth an estimated $900M!

One of the biggest songs of 2014 was “Bang Bang” by Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. All these years, I thought Jessie J wrote it, but it turns out I was wrong! In a recent interview, Jessie J said none of the women wrote the song. It was Max Martin. She said that she and Ariana heard it and they both loved it, so they decided, “Why don’t we both do it?” She said, So Ariana stayed on the second verse, I recorded the first verse, and then Nicki was played it in the studio and was like, ‘I’ve got to jump on this.’ We didn’t go to her and ask. She wanted to do it.” Nicki’s recollection is way different. She tweeted last night, “Babe @JessieJ, I didn’t hear the song & ask 2get on it. The label asked me 2 get on it & paid me. How would I have heard the song? 😩 chiiille what am I the damn song monitor? Snoopin around for songs chile?😂 This was said by another artist recently as well. Yallgotta stop🎈 LoveU.”

Once again, Kim Kardashian loaded up the four kids, dressed everyone in head-to-toe Balenciaga, and headed back to Atlanta for Kanye’s second listening party for “Donda.” After the first listening party at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Kanye decided the album wasn’t quite done. He decided to move into the arena and stay there to tweak it. Everyone who heard it said the album definitely sounded more polished and complete. But it must not have been complete enough because Kanye STILL hasn’t dropped the album.

The next court date regarding Britney Spears’ conservatorship was supposed to be in December, but it got pushed up to Sept. 29. Now her new attorney is asking that the hearing pushed up to Aug. 23, saying that “In short, although a two-month wait for a hearing on the Petition may not seem significant in the context of 13 years, Ms. Spears should not be forced to continue feel traumatized, lose sleep and suffer further. Every day matters.” And in a SHOCKING Instagram post, for the first time ever, Britney actually used the word conservatorship!! She posted a video of her lying out in her bikini, saying, “I am sure a lot of you guys are wondering how I’m doing since the cat is out of the bag. Literally, out of the bag. And you guys know my situation. I do want to let you guys know things are way better than I ever anticipated. And here are a couple of questions that you guys asked me apart from the drama in the conservatorship.” Then she cut to another video where she’s standing there in a flowery dress and let us know the answers to these questions that nobody asked. Her favorite clothing store? “Definitely J.Crew.” Britney likes that they sell clothes for men and women and she was actually wearing a J.Crew dress in the video. The answer to the second question nobody asked? Britney’s favorite Miley Cyrus song is “definitely ‘We Can’t Stop.’” Britney said that’s a “really cool song.” And when nobody asked her to choose between Baked Lays and plain Lays, Britney said, “I would have to say that I would choose a real deal Lay, definitely.” And this I DID want to know. Britney’s favorite scent of lotion is vanilla. She popped back on about an hour later to share that she’s doing some yard work and wants to add a koi pond. She came right back on again to let us know that for the first time in her life, she has an iPad and she couldn’t be more excited about it. She then did this weird little snippet of a video of her wearing nothing but a black blazer and hot pink high heels, wobbling around asking, “Could I do this if I was drunk?” It turns out she was so excited about her iPad and she wanted to show off her new shoes so she recreated a scene from “Bridesmaids.”

“*presses post* … *cackles maniacally* …Level: casually cruel in the name of being honest.” That’s how Taylor Swift captioned a video she posted of a red vault with all these random letters flying out of it. People way smarter than I figured out they needed to write the letters down and it became a giant word find puzzle. And it looks like Taylor just told us that she has Phoebe Bridgers, Chris Stapleton and Ed Sheeran joining her on her upcoming “Red (Taylor’s Version)” album, which comes out Nov. 19. It’s no surprise about Ed. He was on the original “Red” album and already said in an interview that his re-recording of “Everything Has Changed” was in the can. In the puzzle, you’ll also find the words “better” and “man,” so it looks like Taylor is going to record her own version of “Better Man,” which she gave to Little Big Town and watched them take it to number one on the country charts. You’ll also find the word “babe” in there, which is a song she gave to Sugarland. Taylor added her own background vocals to their version, but will it be all her when she does? And even though fans already assumed, it looks like it’s true. The re-recorded “Red” will include the 10-minute version of “All Too Well.”
