Made in America 2014?

When will we hear about this summer's Made in America festival, Jay Z's megafest held for the last two years in Philadelphia? Assumptions are there'll be one this year, too.

McCurdy's selfie disaster

Who is master of Twitter?

Chinese actor Wen Zhang may be the most followed person on the planet. On Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, he has more than 52 million followers, which beats Katy Perry's 51.9 mil on Twitter.

Wen, who has a wholesome image as a family man, posted a message late Monday that his wife and children "could have had a warm and nice life, but everything was destroyed by me." Sina Weibo exploded with 1.2 million retweets and 1.9 million comments. The record is still safe, though: Ellen DeGeneres' fabulous Oscar Night "mega-selfie" has drawn 3.4 million retweets.
