Kristi Coleman : Who Dat making headlines?

Fans just can’t control themselves over the new installment of Harry Potter coming later this year. 

This time around, Harry is the dad, struggling with his own son.

CNN reports, the eighth installment of the Harry Potter series, the two-part play, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” will be published as a book this summer. The newest Potter installment will first be presented on stage in London, followed by a release of the “special rehearsal edition” book.

J.K. Rowling announced the exciting news on her Pottermore website Wednesday. Get ready to unlock a whole new world of magic with our favorite wizard around.

While we're excited over the new Harry Potter, we're not sure of where the character Snape stands. Snape is known as the mysterious professor played by Alan Rickman in all of the Potter films.

Rickman passed away from cancer last month at the age of 69. 

The Harry Potter series of books have sold over 450 million copies worldwide between 1997 and 2007.  

The newest installment will be available at midnight on July 31. 

Has Kayne finally made up his mind?

Seems like Kayne West has finally settled on a title for his upcoming album. The 38-year-old rapper turned designer posted the new name to his Twitter account Wednesday, T.L.O.P.

According to his handwritten track list, West captioned the picture, “Final track list for The Life of Pablo.” Ten tracks seem to have made the final cut, but that’s not including No More Parties in La which is a song he recently released featuring Kendrick Lamar.

I guess the previous title names, So Help Me God, Swish, and Waves just didn’t do it for him. The ever-changing album was scheduled to be released Thursday but it has not appeared on ITunes just yet.

Not to mention, West has been tweeting a lot lately. Maybe fans should be looking for a new release date for T.L.O.P.

Either way, West sure has everyone talking right about now. Tuesday, he tweeted “BILL COSBY INNOCENT!!!!!!!!!!” without an explanation. Many called for him to retract his statement but the rapper went on his next tweet about Lebron’s new sneaker collaboration with Nike.

The rapper is busy making his own fashion statements as Yeezy Season 3 will be released Thursday for New York Fashion Week.  Us Weekly reports, Lamar Odom is planning to attend Yeezy’s fashion show. This would mark the former NBA star’s first public appearance since his hospitalization in October.

Gwen Stefani to make history!

Celebs may be gearing up to hit the red carpet and stage at the 2016 Grammys but Gwen Stefani will be doing that and then some.

The singer and retail giant Target have teamed up to produce the first live music video on live television, for her upcoming solo single “Make Me Like You.” Stefani broke the news to fans on Instagram in a special post, “This is big. I’m going to be in the first LIVE music video on a #GRAMMYs commercial break with @Target! #MoreMusic.”

The performance will take place during a four-minute commercial break during the Grammys, according to E! News. The video will feature multiple sets and real-time costume changes. The action will also be captured for social media junkies on Periscope, Facebook Live and Snapchat.

The 2016 Grammys are slated to air Monday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m.  

In Bieber News

Justin Bieber is totally rocking out these days.

Beiber uploaded a selfie with rock icon Joan Jett to his Instagram account Wednesday. The pop-star and Jett posed for a pic while at the Saint Laurent show in Los Angeles.

The 21-year-old did not caption the photo but from the looks of his smirk, it seems like he had a pretty good time.
