The office of embattled Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) is pretty furious with GOP activist and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove.

For joking that Akin should be bumped off, obviously.

Businessweek reports that Rove spoke about Akin - who is facing calls to drop his bid for Missouri's U.S. Senate seat - at a GOP donors' breakfast in Tampa.

The site says Rove quipped to the audience: "We should sink Todd Akin. If he's found mysteriously murdered, don't look for my whereabouts!"

Akin-Rove

Akin's office issued a statement calling the quote "deeply disturbing," given that the FBI is investigating real threats following Todd Akin legitimate rape controversy.

He's vowing to stay in the race despite the criticism he's endured since suggesting rape victims rarely get pregnant because the body will "shut the whole thing down."

Many influential Republicans - Rove included - wish he would bow out, believing another candidate would have a better chance against incumbent Claire McCaskill.

Should Akin drop out of the race?

Kim Kardashian has finally confirmed her relationship with Kanye West.

Yes, the rapper has appeared on her reality show. And, yes, they've been snapped holding hands on many occasions.

But Kardashian has yet to actually utter the B-word when it comes to Kanye, until her most recent Twit pic, which Kim posted last night and which includes the caption "BF Time."

Kim Kardashian and BF

Kardashian has been Tweeting up a photo storm in recent days and weeks, showing off her breasts... fueling wedding rumors... and posing in a bikini. Very often posing in a bikini.

So at least this image provided some actual, quasi news. Even if the relationship is more contrived than a typical episode of Glee.

Did Justin Bieber act irresponsibly when posing in a new Twit pic with his father and girlfriend Selena Gomez?

Many believe so, and many are demanding an apology for the singer. Here's why:

As you can see in the photo, Bieber (on the set of Gomez's new movie, Feed the Dog) is holding a fake gun from the film up against a man's side.

Justin Bieber Prop Gun Pic

In light of the recent Aurora, Colorado and Empire State Building shootings, some consider this to be a horrible, disrespectful misstep for the artist.

"Guns are on everyone's mind as a serious crisis in Canada and the United States. Everyone, that is, except maybe Justin Bieber," wrote a jornalist from Canada's Globe and Mail.

What do you think of the prop and the pose? Sound off now:

American Idol is set to go a little bit country.

Sources tell TMZ that Keith Urban is on the verge of signing a contract with the Fox competition. He would earn around $3 million for Season 12 and sit alongside Mariah Carey (confirmed for the panel) and Nicki Minaj (nearly confirmed).

Keith Urban on Stage

A show insider also claims Randy Jackson is out, while a fourth judge reportedly WILL be included on the panel.

With the world of pop, hip hop and country now covered, it's unclear from which genre that individual will hail from.

What do you think of Keith Urban? Good choice for American Idol?

The biggest story to come out of Thursday's conclusion of the Republican National Convention was not Mitt Romney's acceptance specch, but #Eastwooding.

Eastwooding being the Twitter hashtag for parodies, jokes and memes at the expense of acting legend Clint Eastwood's unusual, yet highly entertaining speech.

The 82-year-old debated an invisible Obama in an empty chair in what had to be the strangest endorsement of Romney all week, and the Internet went nuts.

Here's the original photo - angled so Invisible Obama still uses a teleprompter (subtly hilarious) - along with some of our favorite celebrity-based parodies:
