* Cristina Yang, one of TV’s most endearing characters is hanging up her scrubs for good. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sandra Oh has said she is leaving Grey’s Anatomy at the end of the 10th season. We’ll miss the feisty Yang who gave me one of my favourite lines from the series: “I need a drink, a man or a massage. Or a drunken massage by a man.”
* As we get closer to the release date of Anchorman 2, news from the camp comes of Ron Burgundy’s memoir. Let Me Off at the Top!, is a autobiography attributed to the fictional character, and will be published by an imprint of Random House in November, before the film’s December release.
* Another Banksy mural is going under the hammer, for the first time in the US. In what has been a weird phenomenon where whole pieces of property are removed in order to capture the street artist’s work, this particular work is a chunk of wall from an LA gas station, featuring the silhouette of a girl holding a basket of flowers looking up at a security camera. Banksy himself has said in the past that he’d discourage people from buying street are, unless it was actually created for sale in the first place.
* Either Kendrick Lamar went too far on his verse for Big Sean’s Control track or everyone else is going too far in analyzing it. Either way, various rappers and industry folk are responding to the verse in which the BET-award-winning emcee calls himself the “King of New York”. Isn’t rap meant to be built on competition?
* Good news for Jane Austen fans, the British Museum has found the money needed to buy back a ring belonging to the late author from Kelly Clarkson, which the singer bought on auction last year.
