Iggy Azalea Shares How She’s Moving On After Splitting with Nick Young

Kevin Mazur/WireImageIggy Azalea says she is doing just fine since splitting from NBA player Nick Young last month.

The rapper tells People magazine that “change is good,” adding that she’s looking forward to “new beginnings.”

Iggy, 26, announced the split on social media last month, citing trust issues. The “Fancy” singer and Young, 31, began dating in 2013 and announced their engagement in June 2015.

There’s now speculation that she’s moved on with French Montana. E! News says they went to Jennifer Lopez’s Las Vegas show Saturday night and then partied together.

For fans waiting to hear how Iggy will address the split on her upcoming album, titled Digital Distortion, out next month, they’ll be disappointed.

“No, my album has already been recorded,” she reveals. “It’s been finished since February, so none of that in there.”

Selena Gomez Says She Feels “Unauthentic” and “Disconnected” from Her Music

C Flanigan/WireImageJust one day after turning 24, Selena Gomez revealed that she’s questioning not only her music, but herself.

The singer, whose birthday was Friday, made the admission after kicking off the Asian leg of her tour Saturday in Jakarta, Indonesia.

“Tonight I felt extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both myself and my music,” she posted on Instagram.

“I’ve never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear that something hasn’t happened,” she continued. “I’m stagnant, I stay still and don’t just sit with myself first and ask ‘Is this where I am, whole heartedly?'”

Selena concluded: “I’ve always told the truth. I’m always true to my word, I’ve shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally.”

The singer captioned the message with these words: “not being negative about anything I’ve done. I’m grateful for every single moment I get here — Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much.”

Selena also got emotional on stage while wrapping up her performance, according to a fan’s video.

Ahead of performing “Kill ‘Em With Kindness,” Selena explained why the song was so meaningful to her.

“Because I get really frustrated. I get stupid sometimes. I say things that I don’t mean or that come out wrong just because I care so badly,” she admitted. “But the thing is, at the end of the day, no war in anger was ever won.

“I do know that deep down in my heart that I have to believe that we can love each other and always be kind no matter what it takes in us. I believe that we can do that, no matter what,” she added.

“Star Trek Beyond’s” Zachary Quinto Remembers Leonard Nimoy, Anton Yelchin

Paramount Pictures(NEW YORK) — Zachary Quinto can be seen in his third go ’round as Mr. Spock in Star Trek Beyond. In a chat with ABC News, Quinto admits he was nervous to meet the late Leonard Nimoy before getting the chance to play the actor and director’s younger self.

However, the pair unexpectedly became close friends, Quinto says, making Nimoy’s death in 2015 especially hard. “It just became a really, really profound and important relationship, and I miss him.”

Although Nimoy is gone, he’s a part of Star Trek Beyond, Quinto explains. “I feel like it was very important for me to find a way to include him in this film. and I thought that Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, our writers, did a beautiful job of really weaving him into the narrative, and not having it be a fleeting acknowledgement…”

Quinto adds, “A lot of audiences responded really, really positively to that.” 

The cast also had to weather the death of another former castmember, Anton Yelchin, who was killed in a freak car accident in June.

His character, Pavel Chekov, won’t be re-cast by Trek reboot series producer J.J. Abrams, and Quinto agrees with the decision. “To honor him and the beautiful work in these movies, we’ll find ways to honor him and celebrate him, but not try to ever put somebody in his place, because that would be impossible anyway…He was an incredible guy. We miss him.”

Star Trek Beyond debuted in first place over the weekend, earning an estimated 59.6 million dollars.

iStock/Thinkstock(FORT MYERS, Fla.) — Two people were killed and as many as 16 others were injured after a person opened fire overnight during an event geared toward teenagers at Club Blu in Fort Myers, Florida.

Police first responded to the scene at 12:30 a.m. Monday, where “officers located several victims suffering from gunshots wounds,” according to a statement released by the Fort Myers Police Department. The injuries ranged from minor to life threatening, according to police, who also confirmed that all of the victims were transported by Lee County Emergency Medical Services to area hospitals.

Officials are still working to determine the identities of those killed and to notify next of kin.

Two other crime scenes were also connected to the incident where police said three people of interest has been detained.

No arrests have been made at this time.

Prince Harry ‘Regrets’ Not Speaking About Princess Diana’s Death

Matt Dunham – WPA Pool/Getty Images(LONDON) — Prince Harry said he regrets not discussing the death of his mother, Diana, the Princess of Wales, earlier in his life.

“You know, I really regret not ever talking about it,” Harry, 31, told soccer player Rio Ferdinand at a barbecue he hosted at Kensington Palace for his “Heads Together” mental health initiative.

Prince Harry was just 12 years old in 1997 when he lost his mom, who died in a tragic car accident at the age of 36. Diana also left behind Harry’s older brother Prince William, who was 15 at the time.

Ferdinand lost his wife to cancer last year and spoke to Harry about the challenges of her death and how it might affect his kids.

“He’s gone through different stages in his life that my kids are going to be going towards,” Ferdinand said of Prince Harry. “So to get some of his experiences is very rewarding for me and very educational in many ways.”

Harry admitted it was only in the last three years that he has been comfortable opening up about his mother’s death. He told the BBC Monday that it is critical for people to discuss life’s challenges to help them get past life’s adversities.

“It is OK to suffer, but as long as you talk about it. It is not a weakness,” Harry said. “Weakness is having a problem and not recognizing it and not solving that problem.”

Harry’s comments came on the same day the fifth-in-line to the British throne released a new video for “Heads Together,” the mental health campaign he formed and spearheads with his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The campaign brings leading mental health charities together to tackle often unspoken and taboo subjects that people are afraid to discuss, and encourages people to speak up about mental health.

Harry reminded people that anyone can suffer from mental health issues, even sports stars and members of the royal family.

“It is very easy for someone to look at someone like Rio Ferdinand and say, ‘You get paid all the money in the world, you are a successful footballer, you have fast cars,'” Harry told the BBC. “But at the end of the day his wife was snatched from him at an early stage of his life with her. So of course he is going to suffer, it doesn’t matter if he has an amazing job.”

Harry’s charitable focus over the next year centers on mental health awareness as well as raising awareness for HIV/AIDS, a cause also championed by his mother.

Munich Shooter Was Planning Crime for Over a Year

(MUNICH) — The 18-year-old gunman who officials say fatally shot nine people before killing himself at a busy shopping mall in Munich on Friday had been planning his crime for over a year and suffered from a range of mental health issues, according to officials.

The attacker, whom authorities have yet to identify, suffered from “social phobia,” anxiety, was taking medication for these illnesses, and had been treated in a psychiatric clinic for two months in 2015, according to the Munich State Prosecutor’s office.

In addition to the nine killed, 35 people were injured in the attack, of whom 10 are in critical condition.

The Bavarian Federal Criminal Office examined potential motives for the attack, but found nothing tangible to link the shooting to the massacre perpetrated by far-right extremist Anders Behring Breivik in 2011, who killed eight people with a van bomb and 69 others in a shooting spree in Norway five years ago. Initial speculations about the shooting spree was that it related to the Breivik attack, due to it falling on the fifth anniversary of the murders in Norway.

“We didn’t find the Breivik manifesto on his computer,” the Bavarian Federal Criminal Office said. “He wrote his own manifesto, describing how he was going to do the crime.”

The gunman, who was born in Germany and was of Iranian descent, did, however, harbor an interest in the subject of mass shootings: He kept a book that included case studies of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the high school students who murdered 12 classmates and one teacher at Columbine High School in 1999, and Cho Seung-hui, a student who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007.

On Sunday, the Bavarian Federal Criminal Office revealed that the shooter visited Winnenden, a small town where a school shooting took place, resulting in 16 deaths, including the suicide of the perpetrator, and took pictures there.

The killer also played first-person shooter games and obtained the murder weapon over the dark web, the Bavarian Federal Criminal Office said.

Syrian Denied Asylum Injures 12, Kills Self in Explosion, German Official Says

iStock/Thinkstock(ANSBACH, Germany) — At least one person is dead and 12 others injured after an explosion outside a music festival in Germany.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said the suspect, a 27-year-old Syrian asylum-seeker who came to Germany two years ago, detonated a device after he was denied entry to the festival.

The suspected bomber was killed in the blast, according to officials. Hermann said the contents of his backpack could have killed more people.

German police said they had been keeping track of the suspect for crimes in the past and he previously attempted to commit suicide. The suspect was living in an asylum shelter in Ansbach, but his asylum application had been rejected, according to Herrmann. Herrmann also said he had been in treatment for depression.

Officials said they were investigating and did not have a motive yet.

Germany has experienced several deadly incidents over the past week including a shooting rampage at a Munich mall on Friday and an axe attack last weekend on a train near Würzburg. Sunday’s attack was the third in Bavaria in a week.
