Sivan's Semi Hard News Report: Friday

Posted: Updated:

Kim and Kanye have decided to take our jokes seriously and name their daughter North West. But it may be Vogue editor Anna Wintour's fault they went in that direction (har har!)

Reports claim Wintour hosted the couple at her home back in May and mentioned she liked the name North for a girl. Perhaps Kim & Kanye didn't hear her LOL after she said it. Baby North will be called "Nori" for short because it's Japanese for seaweed and North is too cumbersome a name to keep pronouncing. 

Fans of Taylor Swift are called "Swifties" and if you wrong them or their namesake, prepare to pay the price! Abercrombie & Fitch found out the hard way not to make fun of Taylor and try to profit off it. They were selling a T-Shirt that read "More Boyfriends Than TS" a nod to Taylor's long list of love interests. Swifties bombarded the company with petitions, protests and general outrage until the retailer announced they no longer sell the shirt. Score one, Swifties.

Amanda Bynes told RadarOnline she has gotten her breast implants removed even though they made quite a splash on Twitter when she posted pictures of herself in a bra. She says they were uncomfortable and she prefers not to have them. So far, no Twitter pics of post-surgery sink shots.  But she plans to get a nose job and put out a rap album so the fun is just getting started.

    Newark school enrollment problems

    Friday, August 22 2014 5:17 PM EDT2014-08-22 21:17:11 GMT
    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.

    Heading into the U.S. Open, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have won 36 of the past 38 Grand Slam titles, a stretch dating to the 2005 French Open. Nowadays, there seems to be a growing sense — or hope, maybe — among the best of the rest on the men's tennis tour that the quartet might be more vulnerable than ever.

    John Lennon's killer was denied release from prison in his eighth appearance before a parole board, New York corrections officials said Friday. The decision on Mark David Chapman by a three-member board came after a hearing Wednesday, the state Department of Corrections said. Chapman fired five shots on Dec. 8, 1980, outside the Dakota apartment house where Lennon lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side, hitting the ex-Beatle four times.
