Kanye West has thanked Russell Simmons for
seeing his vision despite the constant scrutiny Yeezy receives from the media.
Def Jam's founder penned an open letter regarding the rapper via Global
Grind, saying, "I recently sat down with Ye in New York and got the
chance to hear about his hopes and ambitions, his frustrations and
contradictions, his happiness and his anger. But through it all, what I felt
from Kanye was an artist who desperately wants to leave his imprint in the
history books." Russell went on to say, "What's often times
misunderstood about Kanye is that people believe he wants all of this for
himself, in fact, quite the opposite, he wants all of this for the rest of us.
He wants to destroy the glass ceiling with 808′s and crack music . . . so one
day WE have the power to see all of the lights. Certainly he wants a piece for
himself everybody would, but at his core, at the bottom of his heart, lies an
inner-truth that has led to an external battle to make this world a bit easier
for those who have been dealt a hand of struggle, by showing them a glimmer of
hope through his art."

Demi Lovato has admitted that having adult responsibilities
as a child made her believe that she was actually an adult. In an

own rules. I thought that if I was adult enough to get there, then I could
party like an adult. And obviously, I couldn't." The singer went on to say
that her parents couldn't control her because she was the breadwinner of
their household. She explained, "My parents tried to control me, but
I'd be like, 'Oh really, I'm grounded? Well, I pay the bills.' They did
the best they could. And I think that's why a lot of young stars struggle when
they're making money or providing for their family."

voiced her doubt on the group appearing on the British TV show, The Big
Reunion. She told BANG Showbiz, "It's a great show, but I think
for us, there's seven of us ... seven of us getting back together, we're in all
in very different places, so [I don't know]. But it's a great show; it's that
nostalgia that everyone wants to see." Rachel went on to say, "I
loved The Big Reunion and watched all the shows. When they did the tour with
them all, I felt a bit emotional watching it because I just thought, how
brilliant for them to relive it all. They looked like they were having the best
