CBS3 TRAFFIC reporter Bob Kelly has left CBS3 after 13 years at the station. In an email to me, Kelly made it clear this was not an expected departure. "It's been an emotional couple of days for sure. I truly expected to finish out my career at CBS, and the incredible outpouring of countless messages and phone calls has reminded me how much I really love doing what I get to do, and in the city I grew up in," Kelly told me in an email, adding that he was blown away by the support he received on Facebook.

KANYE WEST's sixth studio album, "Yeezus," is the latest affront from an artist who keeps inventing ways to tick people off. At first listen, it is hostile, abrasive (both sonically and lyrically) and intentionally off-putting, as if to test the loyalty of even his most ardent fans. But, as usual, that's only the beginning of West's new detour, on the Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam label. West is used to being written off as a shallow, petulant, needy, self-serving braggart, a talented artist who can't resist impaling himself on his own ego. And some of that is true, as West himself will be the first to say. But even as he barges in full-on full of himself in "Yeezus," West demonstrates that he has a lot more on his mind than just self-aggrandizement or self-immolation.

Today's a big day for the collaboration that Jay-Z and Kanye West have dubbed The Throne. Tickets for their Watch the Throne tour go on sale this morning, through Comcasttix.com for the Nov. 2 show at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, and through Ticketmaster for shows elsewhere. Also, their same-named LP was slated to hit iTunes today. (Reportedly, fans should look under "Throne" instead of the hip-hop stars' individual names.) The release should hit stores later this week.

Kanye West is the Alpha and the Omega of life. At least, where disciple Kim Kardashian is concerned. Days after welcoming their baby girl, Kanye lets his Ego loose on W mag, claiming he's the reason Kim is a fashion icon. "She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from," West says. Without an inner life of her own, Kim dresses up for him. "For her to take that risk," he says, "it just shows you how much she loves me. " Kanye, who says his life goal is "to make Kanye West as dope as possible," says he appears on Keeping Up with the Kardashians not for more PR but for love.

Actor-activist Angelina Jolie has been making headlines for her double mastectomy, but her other passion, international diplomacy, came to the fore Thursday when she visited a Jordanian camp for refugees fleeing the civil unrest in Syria.

Kimye Italian style? The mega-hyped Kanye West - Kim Kardashian PR stunt (ahem, wedding) will be in Italy, not France! "I adore Florence," Kanye told Florence's La Nazione newspaper on Friday. "I . . . came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year. " Adds Kanye, "I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces.

In your face: Kim K's cheeks You can't get away. It's everywhere. It's where you've been, and it's waiting for you where you're going. We speak, of course, of Kim Kardashian 's bottom. This, the most famous bottom in the world, is indeed her moneymaker, and she knows it well. It's out in the open a lot, and on Tuesday it blew a smoking crater in the social-media world when, oiled, well-lit, and photographed by French art photog Jean-Paul Goude , it graced the cover of the mag Paper.

The Budweiser Made In America festival, Philadelphia's third annual oversized musical block party, started Saturday with a mix of rock, hip-hop, and electronic dance music (EDM), comfortably cool temperatures, and two words of far greater importance than all others: Kanye West . Day 1 of Made In America 3.0 pulled in more than 40,000, reaffirming how much of a fixture the Jay Z-curated fest has become on the local summer concert calendar - while struggling, by most accounts, for a foothold in Los Angeles in its first year.

This weekend, the third annual Budweiser Made in America festival will take place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. So what's new and different at this year's Jay Z-curated gathering? For one thing, for the first time neither Jay Z himself, who headlined in 2012, nor his missus, Beyoncé, who was the top attraction last year, is officially on the bill. One would hope the hip-hop kingpin would make an appearance, however, maybe with his close associate Kanye West, who headlines Saturday night.

For two years, Philadelphia had the Budweiser Made in America festival all to itself. Last month, however, it was announced that the Jay Z-curated fest would go bicoastal in 2014, taking place both here and in Los Angeles on Labor Day weekend (Aug. 30-31). Whatever agita that news created - was Made in America going Hollywood? Would the Left Coast take all the best acts? - calmed down Thursday when it was announced that Kanye West will headline MIA in Philadelphia. West, the most polarizing - and one of the most talented - figures in pop music, guarantees that MIA will be anything but dull.

FOR MOST couples, regardless of the their stations in life, a marriage is a profoundly life-changing event and, arguably, the most important commitment two people can make to one another. But for The Most Important Couple in the World, it appears marriage is just another marketing trick to ensure the world's attention for another day or two. Although their announced big day is May 24 (in Paris, no less), Kanye West and Kim Kardashian might have already tied the knot. Or, they might not have.

The biggest-selling albums of 2013 were by Justin Timberlake, country star Luke Bryan, and rappers Jay-Z, Drake, and Eminem. Timberlake topped the list with more than 2.3 million copies sold of the first part of his two-part The 20/20 Experience , according to Nielsen SoundScan. But when looking back on the year in music in 2013, will you immediately think of any of those dudes? Not likely. More likely, the mind will fix on Miley Cyrus' icky encounter with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards, or the former Disney girl swinging naked on her "Wrecking Ball" video.
