Get out the confetti and rice: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally set a date for their wedding. The celebrity nuptials are slated to take place May 24 at an undisclosed venue in Paris. The date and location were confirmed this week by Kardashian during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his syndicated radio program. “We’re having a super, super small intimate wedding,” insisted Kardashian. “As we go along, we’re realizing we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking.” Kardashian also said that her rapper beau is involved in planning the event, up to a point. “There’s certain things where I’m like, ‘I know you’re going to hate the seating chart, so I’ll take care of this,’” she said.

The photo set also included several shots of Minaj applying treatment to her tresses, which she explained later on a series of Twitter posts. “Sherika [my friend] sat there and let me relax my hair after 4 years … it takes too much time to do it. Too much blow drying. Not for texture. Just for time,” tweeted Minaj.

How scary was Angelina Jolie as the titular villain in the new movie Maleficent? She actually frightened the wits out of her own children. The actress says she wanted an honest reaction to wearing the makeup and costume of Sleeping Beauty’s evil nemesis, so she tried it out on her five-year-old daughter Vivienne (who also appears in the film) and her five other children: Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7 and Viv’s twin brother, Knox. “When Pax saw me for the first time, he ran away and got upset – and I thought he was kidding, so I was pretending to chase him until I actually found him crying,” Jolie said. “I had to take off pieces [of the makeup] in front of him to show him it was all fake and not freak him out so much.” Maleficent opens in theatres on May 30.
