Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were in London this week for the 35th annual Brit Awards, which were held on Wednesday night at the city's O2 Arena, and in the wee hours of Friday morning the two hit up a tattoo parlor so Kanye could get some fresh ink.

Kim and Yeezy took in some shopping on Thursday, and later hit a private club for a secret Madonna performance, but at 4am Kanye wanted to hit the tattoo parlor so he could get the birth dates of daughter North and late mother Donda inked on his wrists in Roman numerals.

Imagine Dragons
The ‘dragons’ no longer have to ‘imagine’ anything. Nope! In other words, Imagine Dragons scored this week, debuting atop the Billboard 200. Smoke + Mirrors not only impacted well overall (195,000 units), but also managed robust sales – 172,000 copies. Yes the Billboard 200 is putting more emphasis on the ‘total package’ or the 195K number cited first, but with albums selling so poorly, selling 172,000 copies itself is notable achievement.

After locking down number one last week with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Drake settles for the runner up slot, continuing to ‘impact’ so...

Madonna Falls Down a Flight of Stairs Mid-Concert (Watch)
Here's an important safety tip we've learned from Madonna:

Performing onstage in a giant cape is probably not a great idea.

Because Madonna was rocking a massive cape during her performance of "Living for a Love" at the Brit Awards on Wednesday night. And it was that cape that caused her downfall- literally.

At one point in the performance, it was planned that a backup dancer would yank the cape off her shoulders, and Madonna would twirl it like a matador in a crowd of shirtless dudes wearing bullhorns.

But the cape was fastened a bit too tightly around her neck. So when the dancer grab...
