A Week in News Featuring: TomKat, Frank Ocean, The Kardashians, Sienna Miller, Michael Fassbender and Much More!

11th July 2012

Suri Stays At Holme: We guess you're probably sick of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes by now. No? Well, the latest news is that TomKat have done the admirable thing and settled their divorce quickly and efficiently. Daughter Suri is staying home with Katie, while Tom will get visitation rights. Now that was easy wasn't it?

Totally Frank: Remember last week when we heaped praise on Anderson Cooper for coming out? Well, this week it was Odd Future affiliate Frank Ocean who may have 'changed the game', by becoming one of the few Rap and R&B stars to come out over their sexuality. Huge respect to Mr Ocean, whose new album 'Channel Orange' also hits shelves this week.

The Kardashian Clan Grows: Congratulations to Kourtney Kardashian and her fiance Scott Disick this week, who welcomed their second child, a daughter named Penelope Scotland Debate is raging as to the meaning of the name, we'd guess the obvious - a certain famous Spanish actress, and err, Scotland.

A British Baby: It appears young Penelope could

'Sienna Miller in her car
share a birthday with another famous baby - Sienna Miller's first child. The British actress reportedly gave birth over the weekend, though details are shrouded in mystery!

Globe Winner Pregnant: It's also congratulations this week to Homeland actress Claire Danes, who is expecting her first child with actor husband Hugh Dancy. Fans of the Showtime series shouldn't worry too much though, as Danes will be back for season two on September 30, 2012.

From Idol and Back Again: Singer Adam Lambert appears to be going full-circle and joining the panel of the show where it all began for him. Sources suggest the singer (who most recently sang with Queen) is being touted to replace Randy Jackson on American Idol. We for one think the series could do with a makeover, and Lambert would surely appeal to a younger generation of viewers. A big thumbs up.

Kanye Steps off The Throne: We here at Contactmusic.com were excited this week to hear that Kanye West will release his sixth studio album later this year. After a long tour with Jay Z, and the media enraptured in his romance with Kim Kardashian - we're looking forward to hearing some new solo material.

Michael Fassbender

Playing Video Games: More exciting news this week comes with confirmation that Michael Fassbender - a favourite of ours at Contactmusic.com - will play the lead role in 'Assassin's Creed', a movie adaptation of the best-selling video game.

Video of the Week: Remember when we reported on Paris Hilton's less than impressive DJ debut? Well, this week's hottest footage comes from the streets of Los Angeles, where seasoned DJ Samantha Ronson has some harsh words for the reality star, specifically calling her skills on the turntable "insulting", ouch.
