Obvious Child star Jenny Slate is finally getting her own show. She'll topline an FX pilot helmed by Child's co-writers, Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm. Calvin Klein reportedly won't pursue the thief who stole Lupita Nyong'o's Oscar dress because the pearls weren't real, meaning that the value touted in the news might be grossly inflated. Def Jam Records confirmed that the leaked Kanye West album track list that's been making the rounds on Twitter is fake.  Remembrances are pouring in from musicians over the news that beloved Radio 1 host Zane Lowe is leaving to pursue a yet-to-be-revealed role at Apple.
