• Rich kids are sometimes inclined to rebel against their parents, and Victoria Hearst, daughter of Hearst Corporation founder William Randolph Hearst is no exception. The born-again Christian wants the publisher’s raciest title, Cosmopolitan, to be sold in a non-transparent wrapper– and only to adults. Ms. Hearst cites the glossy’s risqué headlines like “Sex He Craves” and “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?,” as a reason why minors should be protected. She set up a petition (in which she accuses the glossy of peddling “porn tips” to our youth) to help further her campaign. What do you think? Are Cosmo’s headlines too racy? Are they inapropriate for minors? Should they be censored? (Observer)

 • Kanye West was forced to beef up security at his Los Angeles home after a break-in early Wednesday morning. At around 6:30am, thieves made off with some of Yeezy’s posessions, although there is no information on exactly what was stolen. I’m guessing perhaps a few pairs of extra Yeezy 2‘s he had lying around? (Celebrity Gossip)
