South Park creators poke fun at Kim and Kanye

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are about to feel the wrath of Kanye West. For there is surely no end to what the rapper will have to say about the latest episode of their hit cartoon series, which pokes fun at both him and his new fiancée and mother of his child, Kim Kardashian.

In one of their most controversial parodies yet, the comedy duo compare the reality beauty to a 'Hobbit'.

It all goes down during an episode titled 'The Hobbit', which aired on Wednesday night. It sees one of the cartoon's lead characters, Butters, refusing to go out with an overweight classmate, and subsequently showing his friend Wendy a picture of his 'ideal woman', which happens to be Kim.

"You've ever heard of Photoshop? Kim Kardashian is a short overweight woman who manipulates her image and makes average girls feel horrible about themselves," she cries.

"Look it up, stupid, in real life Kim Kardashian has the body of a Hobbit."

After the news reaches a furious Kanye, the rapper decides to pay a visit to pupils. But as he lectures them about how beautiful his future bride is, he find himself in doubt, almost believing that the woman he is about to marry is a diminutive of the humanoid race.

This is not the first time that Parker and Stone have parodied famous stars.

Back in 2005, they made fun of Tom Cruise and John Travolta's sexuality in an episode titled 'Trapped In The Closet.' Before that they depicted a drunken Paris Hilton in 'Stupid Spoiled W**** Video Playset'. Kanye and Kim have yet to comment on the episode, but the rapper will no doubt have some choice words to say about it in the coming days.

Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel separate

They had one of the most solid marriages in the world of musical theatre.

But it has emerged Rent stars Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have separated after a decade of marriage.

The 42-year-olds tied the knot in 2003 and had a son Walker back in 2009.

A representative told People: "Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time. Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time."

The couple met as co-stars in the original production of the Broadway musical Rent in the 1996, and the pair went on to also star in the 2005 film.

Earlier this year Tony-winner Idina revealed the couple's idyllic-seeming marriage was not always easy. She said: "We work at it. I'm not going to glamorise it or glorify it - we go through tough times like everybody else. But we love each other very much. We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate."

Erykah Badu is the new face of Givenchy

R&B singer Erykah Badu has been signed as the face of Givenchy's spring 2014 campaign in reaction to a fashion industry tendency to use predominantly white models on the runway. The label's creative director Riccardo Tisci said that, though unexpected, Badu's casting in the campaign makes perfect sense since she was one of the inspirations behind the collection it features.

Tisci called her an 'icon' and told style.com that Badu, 42, is "one of the most stylish women I've met in my life."

Tisci explained that Badu has "such a good sense of proportion, of colours, when it comes to fashion."

His spring 2014 collection for Givenchy was inspired by the traditional costumes of Africa and Japan.
