This week kicks off with a couple of unexpected encounters. When the TV host Conan O’Brien offers to help one of his employees to learn to drive, she doesn’t expect his wacky road sense and disrespect for other drivers. The road trip gets even more bizarre when they pick up two passengers - Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. Viewers of a sensitive nature should look away …

Meanwhile the judges of American Idol were surprised when Kanye West turned up at the auditions in San Francisco with his pregnant wife Kim Kardashian. West rapped an a capella version of his hit song Gold Digger, which included a name drop for Jennifer Lopez. Lopez and her fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr gave him a golden ticket through the first round.

A newly released video of Taylor Swift celebrates her attendance record-breaking exhibition at the Grammy Museum with a performance of Wildest Dreams, from her fifth studio album 1989, at the Clive Davis Theatre in September.
