:: While Daft Punk were recording their latest LP, they made time to squeeze in studio sessions with Kanye West for his upcoming sixth album: “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck,” Guy-Manuel told Rolling Stone.

:: Justin Bieber is tipped to make history for granting more wishes than any other artist in the 23-year history of the Make-A-Wish Foundation — according to his manager Scooter Braun, who tweeted about the Biebs’ accomplishment. “Very proud of u! #giveback,” he wrote. Say what you will about the Biebs, but that track record of philanthropy speaks for itself. [ONTD]
:: According to the folks at ticket retailer Stubhub, Taylor Swift is outpacing her exes’ shows in ticket sales by an average of 2:1; she’s demolishing the Jonas Brothers and John Mayer, while lagging behind One Direction slightly — but since their profits are split five ways, Swift is still coming out on top over Harry Styles. As they say: U mad? [RadarOnline]
