Kanye West’s manager has promised fans the long-delayed Donda album will “absolutely” be released after the third listening party in Chicago on 26 August (21).

This is the fourth release date announced for the rapper’s album, which is named after his late mother.

It was originally set to drop on 23 July (21), then was pushed back to 6 August and bumped yet again to 15 August.

The third Donda listening party will be held at Soldier Field stadium in Chicago, Illinois on Thursday (26Aug21). The album is slated to arrive on 27 August, according to a listing on Apple Music.

Following up on his Wednesday (18Aug21) Instagram post about the Chicago event, West’s manager, Abou “Bu” Thiam, assured devotees the album is really going to be released this time.

Responding to a frustrated fan who asked, “After this will he finally drop the album?,” Thaim wrote, “Absolutely!”

Answering another question, he explained Kanye will “100% release DONDA,” although he didn’t specify the date, leaving some observers unimpressed.

“we ain’t believing it until it’s on streaming…,” griped another social media user.

The Chicago event will be livestreamed on Apple Music. The first and second listening events set livestreaming records – 5.4 million viewers watched the second launch, blowing away the previous record of 3.3 million people who tuned in for the first party.

Winnie Harlow has reportedly split from her boyfriend.

The model had been dating basketball player Kyle Kuzma for just over a year, but they recently called it quits, reported TMZ.

Editors from the publication added that the former couple remains friends, despite recently ending its romance.

It comes after Winnie admitted Kyle slid into her DMs – but she didn’t see his message for a whole year.

She recalled: “So I got a DM a year prior from my boyfriend, and I had never seen it. I don’t know what the glitch in the system with Instagram is but that never came up for me.

“A year later, at the top of quarantine, he DM’d me again; posted a picture of me in an outfit and I was like, “Oh, hi.’ He shot his shot and slid in the DM.’

“So that was cute and I was like, “Oh hey, how’s quarantine been?’ And yeah, we just started talking from there.”

The couple spent several weeks chatting constantly on FaceTime before Winnie took the plunge and flew out to Los Angeles to meet Kyle.

She added: “And then, after about a month on Facetime for 24 hours every single day, he was like, “?You got to come to L.A.,’ and I’ve been in L.A. ever since. That was a year ago, exactly.”

Perrie announced she was expecting her first child with Alex in May, days after Leigh-Anne revealed her pregnancy news.

Hilary Duff has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Younger star has a “bad headache” and is struggling with her taste and smell as well as “brain fog” and “sinus pressure” after being struck down by coronavirus.

Sharing a selfie on Instagram, Hilary – who has had her coronavirus vaccines – wrote alongside it: “That delta (variant) ” She’s a little b**ch. Symptoms: bad headache. No taste or smell. Sinus pressure. Brain fog. Happy to be vaxxed. (sic)”

Hilary tested positive just as filming started for How I Met Your Mother spin-off series How I Met Your Father.

And the star – who has Luca, nine, with her ex-husband Mike Comrie and Banks, two, and Mae, four months, with her husband Matthew Koma – previously admitted it was challenging filming her show Younger whilst pregnant amid the pandemic.

She explained: “I was a little worried with the challenges of COVID and my pregnancy, but everything came together. I’m all for mask-wearing, but huffing-and-puffing on set in a mask at eight months pregnant was a challenge.

“Fitting into clothes that aren’t made for a pregnant body was not always the most comfortable or fun. And just being freaked out to being exposed to COVID ” there are always risks, even though our set was super cautious. I had to quarantine a bunch of times and that was really hard!”

Mike Richards has stepped down as the new host of iconic U.S. quiz show, Jeopardy!, after past offensive remarks came to light.

Richards, the show’s executive producer, beat out fan favorites like actor LeVar Burton and former contestant Ken Jennings to the job as presenter of the program, after longtime beloved host Alex Trebek died in November (20).

But days after the announcement, an article in The Ringer detailed inappropriate comments about women, and Jewish and Asian people Mike shared on The Randumb Show, a podcast he hosted from 2013 to 2014.

He referred to co-host Beth Triffon as a “booth ho” and a “booth slut” because she had worked as a model at a trade show.

Other inappropriate comments from the podcast prompted a Tweet from social media managers at the Anti-Defamation League, who wrote: “New ‘Jeopardy!’ host Mike Richards’ disparaging remarks about Jews, women & Asians are no laughing matter.”

And on Friday (20Aug21), Mike responded to the backlash, sharing news of his departure as host, but revealing he would remain as the show’s executive producer.

“Over the last several days it has become clear that moving forward as host would be too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show,” he wrote. “As such, I will be stepping down as host effective immediately. As a result, we will be canceling production today.”

He stated the search for a new host will “resume” and guest presenters will be announced shortly.

Richards also apologized, saying he had intended the podcast as “a series of irreverent conversations between longtime friends who had a history of joking around.” He deleted all the online episodes after the article ran.

He also faced allegations of workplace discrimination from the time he was a producer at another game show, The Price Is Right, for allegedly firing models when they got pregnant. At least two of the women sued after they were dismissed from the show.

Burton, meanwhile, seemed to delight in the news of Richards’ resignation, tweeting, “Happy Friday y’all.”

A Morning Consult poll shared by Mediaite bosses on 17 August revealed LeVar was the first choice to host, receiving 14 per cent of the votes. Mayim Bialik, who was recently named a host for special episodes of Jeopardy!, came in a close second with 13 per cent, while Richards received only 3 percent of votes.

The 38th season of the show is due to premiere on 13 September.

Kylie Jenner is reportedly expecting her second child with rapper Travis Scott.

On Thursday (19Aug21), Caitlyn Jenner announced she is expecting another grandchild, which sent the rumor mill into overdrive, suggesting the makeup titan was the parent-to-be, but hours later, TMZ reported it’s the transgender icon’s son Burt, and his wife, Valerie, who are expecting their third child.

Still, rumors have been swirling for months about Kylie, with fans interpreting her baggy clothing and apparent avoidance of alcohol and fish as signs she is expecting, and now “multiple sources” have confirmed the pregnancy to Page Six on Friday.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who shares three-year-old daughter Stormi with Scott, posted birthday photos last week (ends13Aug21), wearing a curve-hugging dress and drinking what looked to be champagne.

But Internet sleuths at Buzzfeed insisted in a lengthy Friday post the photos do not match other pictures taken that day.

Kylie has not yet responded to the reports.

Ed Sheeran has bought a new mobile phone – four years after getting rid of his last one.

The pop star, who will release his fifth album = (Equals) in October, revealed he’s bought a Nokia 3310 so he can use the NHS app while he travels amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

He shared: “I’ve been doing promotion overseas and quarantine afterward. The government call you but I didn’t have a phone for them to call me on. They were really on me. I think they were trying to catch me out.”

Ed actually received a call from someone within half an hour of leaving his house.

He told Table Manners with Jessie Ware: “I don’t know if they have GPRS tracking but we did a five-day test to release thing and on the fifth day I left and then they rung and were like, ‘You’ve left your house.'”

Despite this, Ed still isn’t sure how they knew he’d left the house so quickly.

The Perfect hitmaker said: “I don’t know whether my neighbors are just ringing up. But I basically got the all-clear on an email just saying, ‘You’re ready to go’ so I left and within half an hour they were like, ‘Why have you left?'”

Ed also revealed that his new phone doesn’t even allow him to download social media apps.

In fact, the chart-topping pop star doesn’t know the password to his own TikTok account, meaning someone else has to upload his videos to the platform.

Ed – who has 11-month-old daughter Lyra with his wife Cherry Seaborn – explained: “I don’t know the login for my TikTok. People tell me to do this video and then I guess it goes up.”

A medium has claimed she is married to the ghost of Michael Jackson.

American psychic Kathleen Roberts, who also insists she is the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe, told the U.K.’s Daily Star the late pop superstar’s ghost proposed to her “clairvoyantly” with a pink engagement ring.

She also states late civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. officiated the ceremony and explains the Thriller hitmaker uses her body through possession or “channeling.”

“Michael stays in me all the time,” Roberts tells the outlet, “so he comes to the restroom with me and calls these special bonding moments ‘toiletries’. He loves cookies. He cusses a lot more to I’d expect him to. He talks to me a lot, which is not what I expected from the shy man I saw on TV all of those years I was a fan.”

She believes Michael chose her for the otherworldly relationship because of her apparent resemblance to the late Monroe.

“I feel special that he chose me for a wife (though not on paper) we treat our relationship as though we are married. We have our ups and downs but Michael, the truth is, I just can’t stop loving you,” Kathleen adds.

Despite the ongoing alleged possession, she says Jackson, who died in 2009, has not yet consummated their ‘marriage’.

“He doesn’t like being touched back,” she reports. “He scares me with spider visions and dead corpse visions if I kiss him or try to initiate romance physically. He is very bossy and points things out like flaws and mistakes I make.

“I assume he got that from his father, so I try to overlook that because I love him and I am not perfect either.”

But Wednesday night’s show in Mansfield, Mass., was the band’s first proper gig in 17 months.

Nicole Kidman regrets not having more children.

The actress is mom to Isabella, 28, and Connor, 26, who she adopted with her ex Tom Cruise, as well as Sunday, 13, and Faith, 10 – the biological daughters from her marriage to current husband, Keith Urban.

But the mother-of-four admits she wishes she’d had the option to expand her family further.

She told Marie Claire Australia magazine, “I wish I’d had more children but I wasn’t given that choice. But that’s OK. I get to mother other children. I have six nieces and nephews and I’m godmother to 12. I love mothering, I love kids and what they say.”

Meanwhile, the Big Little Lies star previously revealed she was ready to “give everything up” and focus on family over a decade ago, but she’s thankful she listened to her mother’s advice not to make any rash decisions.

“I’m glad that when I got pregnant with Sunny, I didn’t give everything up,” she said, “because I was like, ‘That’s it, I’m done now’. I was in that sort of pregnancy euphoria going, ‘Yes, this is it. I’m retiring!’

“My mom actually said, ‘Don’t do that. Just keep a little toe in the water.'”

Nicole is happy with her decision but wishes she had “more time”, so she could dote on her family while also being able to take on all the creative projects that interest her.

She added: “I do wish I had more time. I have two little girls and I have a husband who I am deeply in love with – a cool guy and a good man – and we have a very strong family unit that requires an enormous amount of time.

“So, I don’t have all the chances to go and support all the artistic endeavors I would love to do. I want my family and I want the balance.”

Singer Demi Lovato recently changed pronouns but insists their identity is still evolving.

The Tell Me You Love Me singer came out as non-binary in May, but now says that’s not necessarily how they will always identify themselves.

Demi made an appearance during The 19th virtual summit this week to talk about gender representation, where the pop singer reflected on their past image.

“I think when I see pictures or images of myself on a red carpet from when I was 17, 18, or whatever, even just a couple of years ago, I feel like I’m not looking at me, but I recognize that that was a part of my journey,” Demi said.

“I definitely think it’s a journey forever. There might be a time where I identify as trans. I don’t know what this looks like for me. There might be a time where I identify as non-binary and gender-nonconforming my entire life. Or maybe there’s a period of time when I get older that I identify as a woman.

“I don’t know what that looks like, but for me, in this moment right now, this is how I identify. And I have a feeling that it’s not going to ever go back to one way or the other… It’s about keeping it open and free… I’m a very fluid person, and so that goes with how I express myself as well.”
