The X Factor US may have been cancelled, but it’s still going strong in the UK, and Simon Cowell is returning to the panel to give it a little liveliness. Don’t forget that the show is where One Direction was put together, and they’ve since made Simon and his Syco record label millions upon millions of dollars. Well, now he’s lowered the audition age to 14 years old in the hopes of finding another big money boy group.
‘He desperately wants another One Direction or Cher Lloyd and they were very young when they appeared on the show.’
There are some though who disagree with the age limit being lowered on the show and who would prefer if it was actually increased to 18 from the current 16.
A representative from The X Factor confirmed the age lowering to 14 to MailOnline saying: ‘This is to allow a new generation of budding singers to audition for the series. Anyone under the age of 18 will need their parent or guardian’s permission to apply and they will also need their parent or guardian to accompany them to their audition.’
Well, that’s that. I personally do think 14 is way too young to be part of such a rigorous and unforgiving process – especially since kids that age should be in school, not chasing instant fame, but whatever. Get ready to see some fresh faces on the show next season!

Amidst breakup rumors aplenty, Khloe Kardashian might finally be shedding some light on her situation.
She won’t say much publicly, won’t talk about it on the new season of KUWTK, but she does post cryptic (or should I say Kryptic?) instagrams and responded to one Facebook message in a way that might be telling of her emotional space.
See what she said, after the jump!

Khloe Kardashian is no stranger to weight criticism, but when haters are ripping on Kim Kardashian for gaining weight while PREGNANT, that’s when Khloe draws the line!
Kim’s little sis is now speaking out (again) in defense of Kim Kardashian’s weight gain and pregnancy (via PerezHilton):
“I’ve been criticized about my weight forever and I’ve always been happy. So I totally understand how she feels. One day, she was at my house just complaining…not complaining but just saying how hurt she is and she says, ‘I can’t control it, I’m pregnant, I’m growing a baby, what do they want me to do?’ And I just commend Kim for being so strong and she’s so beautiful and I think it’s wrong that anyone would criticize anyone for their weight, but then especially a pregnant person. And I just wanted her to know when she left my house how much I love her.”
First of all, kudos to Khloe for being so outspoken in support of her sis. Second of all, who are all these people who criticize Kim’s weight? Yeah, we all make fun of the fashionista, gently, but man, nobody thinks she should be starving herself during her pregnancy. Right?

Khloe Kardashian is often compared to sisters Kim and Kourtney, and we’re not talking comparing IQ’s!
The youngest Kardashian sister, 28, says that she understand she’s not a teeny little gal, and that being in the public eye can be hurtful but also, kinda weirdly helpful. Khloe tells Cosmo UK:
“I’ve always known that I’m not Kim and I’m not Kourtney — I’ve always been OK with that. I probably thought I was prettier before I entered the spotlight because being compared to somebody else every day does sort of beat up your spirit and soul. But it’s made me stronger.”
The reality star just dropped 20 lbs, but she wants to let everyone know it isn’t about comparing herself to others, but about being healthier.
“I want to say I don’t care, but of course [the comments] are going to sting,” she said. However, “I have to do whatever is good for me … I feel that I’m healthier [now], but I don’t think I’m prettier thinner.”
Hey, it’s gotta be rough being the awkward sister. Still, I kinda dig Khloe. What do you think of her outspokenness on body issues?
