The Amber Alert Newds Round-Up: Hello Kitty is Not a Cat, Brad & Angelina Wed, Kendall Jenner Drops Last Name & Iggy Azalea to Collab With Steve Madden

Get ready to rethink your entire childhood!  The 'LA Times' recently reported that Hello Kitty is not a cat.  I repeat, Hello Kitty is not a cat.  In fact, she's an eight year old girl named Kitty White who lives in Britain with her parents.  The shocking revelation comes as the internationally renowned cultural icon celebrates her 40th birthday with an extensive exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in October followed by the first ever Hello Kitty Con, held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA.  (LA Times)

Congrats to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who finally tied the knot in France over the weekend.  The couple reportedly wed in a small, private ceremony in a chapel at Château Miraval in the village of Correns.  The couple, who are the parents of six children, have been together for almost a decade.  Aint love grand? (People)

Kendall Jenner has officially dropped her famous last name as she continues to pursue her modeling career while distancing herself from the Kardashian/Jenner clan.  After being spotted in countless runway shows, print ads and digital ads over the past year, Kendall recently quipped that her last name has actually hurt her career more than it's helped.  While the name change doesn't come as too much of a surprise, only time will tell if it sticks.

Following in the footsteps of Keyshia Cole, Iggy Azalea has inked a shoe deal with shoe magnate Steve Madden.  No newbie to the fashion game, Iggy has definitely established herself as a fashionista and regularly sits from row at everything from Paris to New York Fashion Week.  This isn't the first time she's collaborated with Steve Madden either - the pair teamed up for a series of concerts in NYC earlier this year.  Sounds like a match made in shoe heaven!  (Page Six)
