Although he doesn't legally need permission for his parodies, Weird Al is famously gracious about seeking the original artist's blessing before releasing a song, even with an album release deadline approaching. After getting no response from Iggy Azalea's people, Al flew to her show in Colorado last month to beg her for permission, TMZ reported.
A wedding hall operator in Japan forked over $5,400 for a bunch of 30 Ruby Roman grapes, which are apparently the most expensive grapes in the world. These grapes, the wedding hall says, will be served to couples who have their weddings at the venue in Kanazawa. It is unclear if couples would be allowed to eat the grapes of if they will just be permitted to look at them.
Tyler Brule [imagine several accent marks on last name], the editor of Monocle magazine, that bedrock of ""lifestyle sensuality and gaywad uptightness," is well known for being "cool," in the sense of "not cool."

Apparently Jessica Simpson is still doing... things... and one of those things is a new perfume scent, maybe? That's the story she told Rachael Ray, and it seems plausible enough, though we're a little more skeptical of the singer's insistence that she's "completely" in charge of making the product ("Vanilla bean smells completely different than vanilla. It's really weird!"). Still, her unenthused patter briefly comes alive when Ray spritzes some "Fancy" (it is called this) into the air, causing Simpson to point out the perfume's unique bonus: the ability to queef in an elevator without anyone being the wiser. Ladies, do not try this at home. [Rachael Ray]
