Wiz Khalifa goes with an unaccustomed sensual and rather dark approach for the visual coinciding with his The Weeknd-featured track, "Remember You." The clip sees two young females, seemingly attracted to one another, with one taking the other to a somewhat unusual and troublesome nighttime party. The Taylor Gang rapper is also featured in the footage as you can see it for yourself above. "Remember You" will appear on Khalifa's forthcoming O.N.I.F.C. album.

Viewers won't see Karlie Kloss walking on the runway wearing Native American-style costume when Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs December 4 on CBS. The brand has decided to yank portion of the show from broadcast after it offended people, especially Native Americans, by putting an Indian feather headdress on the leopard-print lingerie-clad model. Feather headdresses or war bonnets are a symbol of bravery and usually worn by Indian chiefs and honored warriors, but not women. Those who criticized the use of the headdres claimed the company disrespected the Native American cultures and history. "We are sorry that the Native American headdress replica used in our recent fashion show has upset individuals," Victoria's Secret took to its Facebook page to offer its apology. "We sincerely apologize as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone. Out of respect, we will not be including the outfit in any broadcast, marketing materials nor in any other way." Kloss has also expressed her regret, tweeting, "I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast." This year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place November 7 at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City. Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio were among other models supporting the event, while Rihanna and Justin Bieber made performances on the stage. Just days before the show sparked protest for the use of Indian headdress, No Doubt were forced to pull its "Looking Hot" music video since its content and theme, which features a war between Western cowboys and Indians, offended Native Americans.

There are two new pages available today on Facebook. Facebook has launched ‘couple pages’ that will allow couples to chronicle their relationship together and, for those of us who are single, a similar service has been provided for friends. These pages bring together every event, picture and post between page members (either couples or friends) all into one place. “Starting today, we’re introducing a new layout for friendship pages,” said Facebook’s Arun Vijayvergiya. “Friendship pages combine posts, photos and events that you and another person have shared.” “Click the gear menu at the top of a friend’s timeline to see a friendship page… If you’ve listed yourself as in a relationship with someone, you can also visit facebook.com/us to see the friendship page you share with that person.” Some, however, foresee some issues with the new pages. “It doesn’t appear that there is a way for users to block friends or acquaintances from creating these pages about them,” writes Shane McGlaun of SlashGear. “If a jealous girlfriend sees that a page has been created with your name and an ex-girlfriend’s name at the same event, your life is likely to get difficult.”

First season winner of "American Idol", Kelly Clarkson, released the new clip for her track "Catch My Breath" on Monday, November 12. The song is the lead single from the chanteuse's first best-of compilation album titled "Greatest Hits - Chapter 1" due to hit stores on November 19. The new clip definitely lifts Clarkson right into the center of the diva spotlight as she shows off her gorgeous blonde waves, standing extra tall, and looking sultry and svelte in an elegant black dress. The "Don't Rush" singer gets down to those power vocals against a studio backdrop projecting a mix of mesmerizing images of natural elements like water, fire, and of course a lot of wind blowing right in front of her to really deliver that pop diva attitude. "Catch My Breath" may seem like a quite simple production for the 30-year-old pop/rock artist, but it is able to get the job done and present Clarkson as a totally glammed-up diva singing those empowering lyrics of the song. "This song represents who I've been, what I've felt, and where I'm headed as not only an artist but as a 30-year-old that is now smart enough to know that it's time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today," wrote Clarkson about the song on her website. "Greatest Hits - Chapter 1" rounds up the biggest singles from Clarkson's five studio albums and features her hit duet "Don't Rush" with country crooner Vince Gill.
