At least Kim Kardashian admits she owes her career to social media ... and we're surprised 60 Minutes reporter Bill Whitaker was surprised about her answer!
Kim tells the journalist in Sunday's segment about how advertisers reach millennials, when asked if she has figured out how to "monetize the act of living," -- "Yeah, I guess so." Ugh, and that's why we hate-slash-are so jealous of her!
So just what is her talent? "Getting people to like you for you," she answers. And the money's "not bad," she says.
But what about giving up privacy?
Well post-Paris robbery, we're guessing she might have answered this question differently, but as the segment was taped before the incident, Kim answered this way: "I do believe that the pros in my situation and my lifestyle have been more beneficial than the negative things." Hmm ...

We didn't see this coming!
John Mayer has his claws on another famous lady -- this time it's Demi Lovato! The serial celebrity dater has been out of the spotlight for a while but this will certainly put him back in it! The rocker, 39, and the pop star, 24, dined together at Hollywood hotspot Catch, on Saturday, arriving separately and departing separately, but they got cozy at the rooftop restaurant according to an Us Weekly
"John had his arm around Demi and was whispering sweet nothings into her ear. She was into it. They weren't making out or anything, but she was giggling the whole time." Another source tells the mag the couple "chatted it up for over an hour," and said Mayer gushed over Lovato, saying she "has one of the greatest voices."
Demi has dyed her hair back to brunette, which she showed off against a leopard-print jacket, while Mayer had an eclectic look -- a Hawaiian-print shirt with jeans.
This isn't the first Lovato-Mayer intersection; the two collaborated on the 2013 single "Heart Attack." Of that experience, Lovato told MTV News
, "The process of the collaboration was actually really funny because he's a really, really funny guy, and he talks a lot, so he'll go off on something. ... I had a great time. He taught me a lot about the business and gave me a lot of advice."
Mayer previously dated Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Aniston, while Lovato is recently split from Wilmer Valderrama.

AMAZING! Angelina Jolie is holed up in one of the most exclusive, most expensive, most admired mansions in all of Malibu -- the massively impressive oceanside estate of Universal head honcho Ron Meyer.
The two have been buds for years and when Jolie and Pitt split, Jolie rented a beautiful home on Pt Dume in Malibu, but on Sept. 31, she had to be out. And she didn't move to Denise Richards' Hidden Hills home -- she went to VISIT Denise (who knew they were friends?!) -- she was really living at the Meyer's Malibu manse. That's where she and the kids have been photographed twice recently, heading in from the beach on the private staircase that leads up the bluff to the expansive, environmentally-friendly home on a huge long lot with various smaller buildings and tennis courts near the entrance.
Wanna play a quick game of six-degrees of separation? Well Meyer is Jennifer Meyer's dad -- of course she's just announced her split from hubby Tobey Maguire. Meanwhile, Meyer is part of a celebrity poker ring that includes Ben Affleck (who famously lost $400K to the studio head one difficult evening), Tobey himself, Matt Damon, Tom Brady, Rick Salomon and Leonardo DiCaprio and some of his pals.
So anyway, Jolie's in hiding at the home with her kids and they are, apparently, starting to visit their dad on occasion. It remains to be seen when Angelina will actually make an appearance in public -- she and Kim Kardashian are certainly keeping it on the DL!

Check out this adorable throwback video Kanye posted in honor of his wife's 36th birthday. It's an intimate look at the Kardashian girls' childhood and it's so sweet!
Kanye suspended his "I got rid of my phone so I can have air to create," started on Sept. 14 long enough to post this clip -- okay, maybe he did it from his laptop, not his phone. We're sure the phone is still gone, right?!

We cannot WAIT to see the divalicious Mariah Carey belt it out for Carpool Karaoke in James Corden's Range Rover!
OMG, what are they gonna sing? We want "Vision of Love," "Fantasy," "I Don't Wanna Cry," "Butterfly" -- there are so many!!! Those two could have been in the car together for HOURS hitting all the high notes of Mariah's career.
Carey wore a skin-tight red leather biker jacket with who knows what underneath -- diamond-crusted lingerie?! Whatever it is, we love it -- it's classic Carey. Meanwhile, Corden wore an ugly Christmas sweater, so we bet there are some Christmas carols in store for us in this Carpool Karaoke.
Corden showed up to Mariah's Calabasas mansion with a Christmas tree in tow; then the two went out for dinner at Lovi's Deli. This is really getting us into the Christmas spirit, now if only it weren't 100 degrees in LA!

Who knew Maria Menounos had such a great sense of humor?!
The E! News host chatted with the paps as she headed to her car from a flight back into LA and believe it or not, the conversation turned to baby making and wedding bells and Menounos really ponied up! She was on the phone with fiance Kevin Undergaro and she gave us the scoop on whether the couple would get pregnant or get married first and what the wedding theme would be. You've gotta watch it to believe it!

Happy birthday, Kimmy!
It looks like Kanye skipped his usual flower wall this year, in favor of more traditional bouquets. But as the white roses were delivered on Friday to the couple's Bel Air mansion, it wasn't just any flower delivery ... the van had to park at the end of the driveway, buzz in and then an armed guard escorted the flower dude up the long driveway to the back door. Sidenote -- check out baby Saint keeping watch with his nanny as the guy packing heat brings in the beautiful arrangements.

Hey Kendall, why so glum? You've got a party to go to!
Despite her sunshine yellow sweatshirt, Kendall had a scowl on her face while she was pumping gas on Friday afternoon. In addition to the frown and the Shadow Hill hoodie, the 20-year-old outfitted herself in some skintight leggings and pulled her brunette locks back with a headband. Have all the Kardashians ditched their designer garments for athleisure wear? We hope not!
Word on the street is that Kanye West is throwing Kim Kardashian a lavish bash
at their home this weekend to celebrate the reality star's 36th birthday. Originally an over-the-top party was planned in Las Vegas, but has since been cancelled after Kim's Paris attack earlier this month. The mother of two has been struggling since being held at gunpoint by five men -- and wants to keep things, even her birthday, intimate.
Meanwhile, we're glad to see Kendall walking okay since earlier this week the supermodel and her BFF Gigi Hadid graced the cover of W magazine
for their Art Issue, but the only problem was -- the models didn't have knees! No, it wasn't a botched plastic surgery; the knee-less ladies were a most likely a result of a epic Photoshop fail. That's a pretty big oversight! Is Lindsay Lohan doing their Photoshop now?!
