Lil Wayne is out of the hospital, according to his Young Money associate Mack Maine.

Mack Maine told his Twitter followers on Monday night that the multiplatinum rapper had left Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, where he had been hospitalized since last week.

Lil Wayne – who has a history of seizures – was hospitalized last week. A person close to his camp who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation told The Associated Press that a seizure was the cause of his hospitalization.

Hope for ‘good year’

Katie Holmes doesn’t talk about her split from actor Tom Cruise but she does say she hopes this year is better than the last.

The actress tells Allure magazine she wants 2013 to be “a peaceful year for a lot of people.”

She goes on to cite some of 2012’s major headlines like Hurricane Sandy and the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, adding she hopes “it’s a good year for everyone.”

Changing title

South Korean rapper Psy says he will change the title and lyrics of his potential “Gangnam Style” follow-up over worries it could offend Arabs.

The announced title for the song can be written as “Assarabia” or “Assaravia” in English. It’s slang used by South Koreans to express thrills. It suggests no ethnicity or body part, but worries have risen that Arabs might misinterpret the title and find it derogatory.

Psy said Monday on a South Korean social media website that he has decided to change the title. Some lyrics also will change.

‘Voice’ for kids

A children’s version of “The Voice” is arriving to the U.S. “en español” with Mexican pop star Paulina Rubio as one of the coaches.

Telemundo Media named Rubio on Monday as the first of three music coaches on the network’s upcoming singing competition “La Voz Kids,” slated to premiere in the spring on Telemundo.

The new spinoff of the hit singing competition will feature 7- to 14-year-old contestants.
