Vivid Exec Says Kylie Jenner’s Sex Tape Would Outsell Kim Kardashian’s

Sibling rivalry?

According to TMZ reports:

Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch thinks a Kylie Jenner sex tape could outperform her big sister’s tape at the box office.

Steve says he’s undaunted by Larry Flynt, who pooh-poohed Vivid’s $10 million offer to Kylie, saying she was worth $2 mil max. Steve threw plenty of shade on Larry, saying he’s out of touch.

As for Kylie, Steve says he knows whereof he speaks, because he’s the brains behind the Kim K sex tape video, which has made tens of millions of bucks.

Keep it real, would you pay money to watch Kylie Jenner have sex on camera?

Charli XCX, Bleachers’ ‘Do America’ Tour Canceled for ‘Personal Reasons’

The second leg of Charli XCX and Bleachersjoint U.S. tour has been canceled after the Sucker singer withdrew from the trek due to “personal reasons.” “These personal reasons include the fact that I need to be creative,” XCX wrote to fans on Facebook. “Artists tour for a really really long time and I have been on the road for a while now, probably not as long as some, but for me it feels like an eternity. I am struggling to create whilst I’m on the road and that is making me unhappy.”

The singer first hinted that she might be canceling the remainder of the trek when XCX cryptically tweeted “goodbye tour. goodbye america. goodbye world” just hours after she and Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers wrapped up the first leg of their joint Charli and Jack Do America Tour in Columbus, Ohio on August 12th. The 10-date second leg was set to kick off September 14th in Boston.

Although their Charli and Jack Do America Tour was cancelled, both XCX and Bleachers will still both be on hand for Antonoff’s Shadow Of The City Festival in New Jersey on September 19th. Bleachers also had some of their own headlining dates scattered throughout the fall that will continue as scheduled.

In a separate Facebook post, Antonoff explained the tour’s cancellation from his perspective. “So here is what happened and i’m just gonna give you the actual story with no filter. Was all geared up for leg 2 of the tour when we got a call from Charli’s camp that she couldn’t continue on the tour,” Antonoff wrote. “Came as a bit of a shock to me as I’m sure it is to you right now. I need you guys to have the truthful and unfiltered version of what happened because canceling shows is something I do not do unless I physically can’t walk on to the stage.”

While Antonoff and his team scrambled to keep the tour alive as a Bleachers-centric trek, “It has been made clear that reworking the tour at this late stage without Charli is not realistic,” he wrote. Despite the surprise cancellation, Antonoff reiterated there are no hard feelings. “I want to express something right off the bat so there is no confusion or room for gossip of any sorts. I love Charli. She’s my friend and I respect her as a person and as an artist,” the Bleachers frontman wrote.

Both XCX and Bleachers promised that the silver lining in their nixed trek was that it would allow them to work on new music. “As an artist I need to move quickly and write a lot to not feel restless,” XCX wrote, while Antonoff told fans, “The only piece of good news here is because of the cancellation I will be getting back into the studio a bit quicker than planned to work on the new Bleachers album for you all – promise to get back and tour on that ASAP.”
