Robert Pattinson



Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reunited for a month's 'trial'.



The couple split during the summer when it was revealed Kristen had been cheating on Robert with her married 'Snow White And The Huntsman' director Rupert Sanders but are now trying to get their romance back on track, though the British actor is still unsure he can forgive his girlfriend's behaviour.

A source said: 'Robert has had a lot of time to reflect on what has happened and, while he may still be hurting, he has also come to realise just how important Kristen is to him.

'He has warned Kristen that he might never be able to forgive and forget. But he's agreed to give it a month to see if they can make it work. If they can't he says he will walk away.'

Though the pair are no longer living together, they meet up regularly but Robert has laid down some ground rules.

The insider explained to Britain's Grazia magazine: 'Kristen hasn't stayed over at Rob's new place yet. They have seen each other most days since their initial meeting but they are taking baby steps.

'He has also requested they don't talk about Rupert or what happened.

'Of course Kristen is ecstatic to have Robert back. But she is still on edge because she knows it is only a trial and Robert could change his mind. She says she feels like she is walking on eggshells.'



Wiz Khalifa

Uh-oh! It looks like Wiz Khalifa is in trouble with the law again. Authorities reportedly wants to speak with the Pittsburgh rhyme-spitter after supposedly leaving the scene of a hit-and-run accident last Wednesday (Sept. 19). TMZ reports that a woman who was working on the set of Wizzy’s music video claims the rapper crashed into her car and then left the scene. The woman filed a hit-and-run report with law enforcement after the accident, which she alleges happened around midnight when the shoot wrapped and everyone was leaving.The LAPD has been trying to contact the soon-to-be dad but had no luck so far. Reps for Wiz had no comment on the matter.This alleged incident follows Wiz’s run-ins with the law earlier this year. The Taylor Gang leader was busted twice for marijuana possession. The last arrest occurred in May when police stopped his tour bus in Winston-Salem, N.C. after a show. The first time it happened was back in April in Nashville after authorities raided his hotel room. We hope Wiz can get his latest criminal inquiry straightened out. A hit-and-run case is a serious matter.

FIONA APPLE ADMITTED Drugs Were Hers ... Cops Say



Fiona Apple freely admitted" the hash and the weed on her tour bus belonged to her when cops discovered the drugs last night ... so says the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office. 

Cops say .... Apple's 2004 tour bus entered the U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, TX around 8 PM on Sept. 19 and officers performed a "routine" check of the vehicle. 

During the sweep, officers used drug-sniffing dogs ... which detected the presence of narcotics in a blue backpack. 

Cops say the backpack contained a glass container with .01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hash. 

For all of you squares law-abiders unfamiliar with drug weight -- the weed is equivalent to the size of a baseball ... and the hash is equivalent to the size of a golf ball. 

Cops say Apple "freely admitted" the drugs were hers and she was 
placed under arrest

According to police, Apple spent the night in jail -- and was released earlier today on $10,000 bond.

Kim Kardashian names kitten after one of Kanye's songs




We’re keeping our eyes peeled for horsemen of the apocalypse. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven’t spawned just yet, but they’re taking one of the logical steps that precede it: They got a kitten. And she named it Mercy, after the hard-hittin’ Yeezy track. It’s only appropriate considering he named ‘Perfect B—-’ after Kim, right?



To be fair, the kitten is freakin’ adorable — a tiny, fluffy little white thing with bright blue eyes and an adorbs pink nose. The kitten is a Teacup Persian, perhaps an ode to Kardashian’s own Middle Eastern roots (her lineage hails from Armenia). Kardashian debuted her “new baby” on Twitter (where else?), where the precious little critter got a ton of love from her fans.

Getting a pet is a big step for a couple, so once Kardashian finally finalizes that pesky divorce from Kris Humphries (her relationship with West has alreadysurpassed the span of her 72-day circus of a marriage), we wouldn’t be shocked to hear more wedding bells for the starlet and her boo. We wouldn’t even mind if this wedding were televised, especially if their BFFs Jay-Z and Beyonce(well, sort of) show up. But we could do without a honeymoon video.

Something we would like to see on reality TV, though? If Kimye get a female puppy, maybe she’ll name it after ‘Perfect B—-.’ After all, it’d only be literal — and probably fitting.

Rapper WEBBIE Arrested!

Rapper Webbie has been arrested for battery and robbery -- after allegedly kicking a woman down a flight of stairs and filching $340 from her pocketbook ... but Web tells us, none of it's true.

According to a police report filed in Baton Rouge, LA, Webbie is accused of attacking a woman inside a Chase Suite Hotel early this morning after being banned from the premises -- kicking her down two sets of stairs before swiping her purse and stealing $340 in cash.

The details surrounding the altercation are unclear.

According to the report, Webbie was arrested on the scene at approximately 2:30 AM.

A rep for Webbie tells TMZ, the rapper met the woman behind the accusations at a party last night -- but he never attacked her, or stole her money.

The rep admits Webbie took money from the woman's purse -- but insists the money is his ... and the woman in question had stolen it from him. 

The rep says Webbie -- who was released today on $9,000 bond -- plans to fight the accusations.

J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar Battle for Lyricist of the Year at the HHAs



In the wake of BET's huge announcement on 106 & Park tonight revealing the nominees for the 2012 Hip Hop Awards, there are many interesting subplots and mini-dramas emerging. It's hard not to notice how much impact alumni of BET's Music Matters program are making: Big Sean andMiguel each racked up several nominations, mostly for their collaborations with other artists. But two other Music Matters grads are going head to head for their HHA glory: Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, who are both vying for Lyricist of the Year.


BET launched Music Matters to highlight on-the-rise singers and rappers who are keeping music alive. The initiative expanded into a tour, and has also included EstelleElle VarnerStalley andMelanie FionaJ. Cole was spotlighted by Music Matters back in 2010, after two mixtapes, The Warm Up and Friday Night Lights, took his buzz to new decibel levels. Since then, he's released his 2011 studio debut, Cole Word: The Sideline Story, which topped the Billboard charts and established him as a bona fide star. On the mic, Cole skillfully balanced introspection, party-starting and battle-ready bars, and he received the nod for Lyricist of the Year at the HHAs as a result.

Kendrick Lamar, meanwhile, signed on with Music Matters earlier this year, when it was announcedhe'd be headlining this fall's 23-date Music Matters tour, which began a few days ago. The tour will help ramp up anticipation for his own major-label debut, Good Kid., m.A.A.d. City, set to drop Oct. 22. Kendrick signed a deal with Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment after releasing his stunning indie album Section.80 last year. Kendrick's tongue-twisting, deeply personal verses led Dre,Snoop Dogg and Game to crown him the new "King of the West Coast," and made him a shoo-in nomination for Lyricist of the Year at the 2012 Hip Hop Awards.

We can't help but be proud watching these two Music Matters alumni come up and compete with true legends — NasJay-ZKanye West — for Lyricist of the Year. 

The only problem? We can't decide who we want to win! Who do you think should win Lyricist of the Year? J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar? Or one of the other nominees? Let us know in the comments below.

Today (9/11) marks the 11th anniversary of the coordinated terror attacks on the U.S., where commercial airliners were turned into missiles and flown into landmark buildings like the Twin Towers in NYC and the Pentagon in Virginia, with one diverted into a field in Pennsylvania. Approximately 3,000 souls were lost on that unseasonably warm, late summer Tuesday morning in 2001 and the pain is still fresh and acute for many pop stars, despite the passage of time.

Native New Yorkers like Mariah CareyDiddy and Lady Gaga tweeted their notes of love and strength, while others, like Phillip Phillips and Trey Songz weighed in with their thoughts and feeling on this somber day. Travis Barker ofBlink-182‘s tweet was especially important, since he himself survived a plane crash.

The prevailing theme was that despite a decade-plus passing, we will never forget.

Below is a collection of 9/11 remembrance tweets.
