Calvin Klein decided to get with the times, if the times was two years ago, by joining Tumblr. [WWD]

- Not to rain on Azealia Banks‘ Met Gala parade, but rumor has it that another neon-haired raptress was asked to perform before her [hint: she's a stupid hoe] but never signed a contract so Ms. Bank$ was a last minute replacement. Well, one bad bitch’s loss is another bad bitch’s gain. [Page Six]

- Jessica Simpson has finally given birth after a gestation period rivaling that only of elephants and Mariah Carey. Note, not a fat joke, but interpret it as you will. [Elle]
