This Week: Kanye's GRAMMY Problems & Jon Stewart's Departure

This week, an acclaimed rapper wasn't pleased with a GRAMMY decision and a late night staple will be looking for a new host soon.

1. The Kanyes GRAMMYs Happened

There are a million things we could say about the GRAMMYs last Sunday, but one of the most talked about moments was Kanye West's joke towards the end of the night. At Sunday's event, the 37-year old rapper walked onto the stage as Beck was accepting his award for Album of the Year before turning around and returning to his place in the audience.

Some found the act to be funny while others thought it was disrespectful. To West, it was a launching point for him to discuss his views on real artistry not being valued at the GRAMMYs ceremony.

During an after-GRAMMYs interview, West also stated that Beck should give his award to Beyonce, whom West thought was more deserving of the trophy.

Spoiler alert: Beck didn't give his award to Beyonce.

Since the event, West has managed to trash talk Beck, turn back around and say he respects Beck, and then somehow manage to resolve all of that Taylor Swift drama.

2. Jon Stewart Bids Adieu

After 15 years on the critically-acclaimed, popular late night news program "The Daily Show," anchor Jon Stewart is leaving the show. Made official by Comedy Central President Michele Ganeless, the network will be saying goodbye to Stewart later this year.

After losing Stephen Colbert, who will be moving on to fill David Letterman's seat on the Late Show on CBS, the network may find themselves in a difficult place when it comes to their nighttime programming.

Hopefully Cartman and the gang of "South Park" will be able to keep the audiences entertained.

3. Iggy Vs. Pizza

It's safe to assume that Iggy Azalea has run out of people to beef with after news came this week that she is in a feud with a Papa John's pizza delivery driver who leaked her number. The Aussie-born rapper was apparently furious about the driver sharing her number with his family members and took to twitter to vent her frustrations.

"@PapaJohns was my favorite pizza but the drivers they use give out your personal phone number to their family members," she tweeted, before adding "And the supervisors at @PapaJohns refuse to send pictures of their employees so you can identify who it is that steals your information."

Why Azalea needed a picture of the driver, no one knows, but it's safe to say that Papa John's has lost a valuable customer.

4. Welcome Home Spidey

Marvel's number one superhero is finally coming home.  Spider-man, a character that belongs to the Marvel Universe in comics, has been owned by Sony for decades making it impossible for Disney-owned Marvel to use the web-slinger in any of their properties outside of comics.

Things changed this week when Sony and Marvel reached an agreement that would allow Spider-man to be lent to Marvel for future projects.

What those projects are still remain a mystery, but fingers are crossed that we'll get a cameo in "Avengers 2: Age of Ultron."

5. Netflix Coming To Cuba

It looks like Netflix is taking a huge leap when it comes to Cuba on Monday. The streaming video company will make its services available to Cuba thanks to the normalization of diplomatic ties between that country and the United States.

So if you're in Cuba reading this, have an internet connection and a valid debit or credit card, then you'll be a mere click away from a huge library of popular and (at times) irrelevant films.
