DID KELLY CLARKSON ADDRESS HER HUSBAND'S REPORTED CHEATING?

A comment under Kelly's name was posted on a story about Brandon's affair on TheDirty.com. Apparently, the comment posted by "Kelly Clarkson" said, "This is absolutely absurd. The woman who posted this fictitious sic rumor about my husband used sic to be my personal assistant until I terminated her for trying to steal from me."

JAMIE LYNN SPEARS TALKS SISTERHOOD WITH BRITNEY SPEARS
Britney Spears' little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears has revealed that believe it or not, the two have never had sibling rivalry. Jamie told Billboard, "Me and Brit, I'm sure no one believes me when I say, there is no rivalry! You have to remember that we are 10 years apart, so I always saw her as a second mom. We have fun like only sisters can, but we don't have that young sibling rivalry."
She continued, "She was one of the first people to call and tell me how proud she was of the success of 'More', so charts won't come between me and her – never will!"
Jamie then dished on the sisters' duet on Britney's new album, Britney Jean. The singer said, "It wasn't some thought-out plan for us to do a song together or anything. It was super natural the way it all went down. I had been playing her some things that I had been writing, and she really liked them, so she asked me to come to the studio with her while she worked on her album. I went with her for a few days, and she asked me to sing on one of the songs. So, I jumped in and did it!"
KANYE WEST APOLOGIZES TO NIKE
Kanye West has apologized to Nike. In a video recently posted to Youtube, Ye said, "I really feel honored to have had the chance to blow Yeezy up with Nike and I really appreciate everything they did for me.

KANYE PLANS TO RELEASE AN ALBUM WITH EIGHT SONGS
Meanwhile, Kanye has revealed his plans to release a new album, but with less music. During the rapper’s interview at Art Basel in Miami, Ye explained, "It's just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can't take anything else away. Yeezus was very, very designed. I took a departure from radio and popular music in order to get this seat here. If I hadn’t made Yeezus, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this cool font at Basel right here."
Rick Rubin -- who was previously said to be producing Kanye's next album, told The Daily Beat, "Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album. But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, 'Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half,’ to which Kanye excitedly said, ‘That’s what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!'"
