Angelina Jolie is a Professor Now, a Real Professor
This isn’t one of those honorary titles that makes everyone with a real doctorate roll their eyes. The London School of Economics has named Jolie one of four new professors in its novel master’s-degree program focusing on women in conflict zones and on issues of sexual violence. A topic that has been close to Angelina’s heart for decades. She is already a United Nations goodwill ambassador and a special envoy for the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Refugees, so this makes sense. Angelina will be delivering lectures, participating in workshops and appearing at public events. She released a statement saying:”I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s program. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict.” Congrats Angelina!

You Can Buy a Brick From Eminem’s Childhood Home
This will make you feel old, it’s the 16th anniversary of the Marshall Mathers LP. To celebrate, Eminem is releasing limited edition collectibles, made from his childhood home. The home was featured on the original album, with Eminem sitting on the steps; and it was featured again on Marshall Mathers LP 2, boarded up and uninhabitable. The home was completely unlivable and was eventually torn down. But Eminem swept in and gathered the rubble. The 700 numbered bricks come with a Certificate of Authority, Eminem’s signature and a display stand with a plaque. He’s also releasing a cassette version of the album, and dog tags made from the wood of the demolished home. Get more here.

Kendra Wilkinson Has Released a Song & Video
Kendra Wilkinson, playboy bunny, & star of Girls Next Door, has released an album. It’s called “Kendra On Top” and she just shared the first single and a video. The song is called “Lost In Space” and the video is literally the old TV show “Lost In Space” with Kendra superimposed into the scenes. We tried not to judge, we really did! But, well, you be the judge:
Did you make to the end? If you did, you’re stronger than we are. Yikes why does every quasi-famous person try to do an album? It’s never a good idea. Get more here.
