Leave it to Diddy to bring video's back to TV!
DIDDY'S new cable music channel, Revolt TV, is launching in major markets on October 21st. It'll feature all-music programming with videos, music news and interviews!!
In other words, it's going to be like what MTV and VH1 were in the good old days!
In a new video "announcement," Diddy says he's sick of being asked what the channel is going to play. He says it'll have, quote, "The best of rock, the best of EDM, the best of hip-hop . . . the future of music.
"We may play some country music if it's funky enough, baby. Ain't no closed-mindedness with music. Revolt is a multi-genre, multi-platform music network. We gon' play that new [crap]. The stuff that other people are afraid to play."

Are they OFFICIALLY Mr. & Mrs. Pitt??
ANGELINA JOLIE was spotted over the weekend in Australia, with what appears to be a NEW gold band on her ring finger. She's wearing it along with the engagement ring BRAD PITT gave her last year.
No word from either of their reps, so we'll just have to wait to find out!
Do we have a reKonciliation?
LAMAR ODOM was spotted yesterday at the home he used to share with his wife KHLOE KARDASHIAN.
He looked pretty thin, though, and sources claim he's still on drugs. Apparently, he's even started FREEBASING.
Meanwhile, Khloe did a chat with her Facebook fans yesterday. One of them praised Khloe for hanging tough during "hard times", and Khloe replied, quote, "I'm trying my best! Kisses."
Elton pulling a Kanye on the paparazzi
ELTON JOHN went nuts outside a Hollywood restaurant the other night. He must have been having a bad day, because he didn't even give them a chance to piss him off.
He was steaming from the second he got out of his car. The paparazzi tried to talk to him, and he immediately yelled, "[Eff] off!"
Then he stubbed his toe and nearly tripped, which resulted in him yelling the C-WORD. Then, as he entered the restaurant, he gave them one last "[Eff] off" for good measure.
The good news....Amanda can be fixed!
RadarOnline.com is reporting that AMANDA BYNES has been diagnosed as both schizophrenic and bipolar. A source says, quote, "The bright side is that Amanda can lead a long, normal life, as long as she takes her medication.
"Doctors at the treatment facility are still working to get Amanda therapeutic meds and she's responding to the medications she is being given to treat her dual diagnosis."
Just in time for Halloween.....
AMC released a new, three-part web-series based on "The Walking Dead" yesterday. It's called"The Oath", and in all, it's about 26 minutes long.
The three episodes feature all new characters, but part of it is set in the same hospital from the first episode of "The Walking Dead", where Rick Grimes wakes up after a month in a coma, finding himself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
You can find the new "webisodes" at AMCTV.com
This is the show's THIRD web-series. First, there was the six-part, 20-minute one that told the story of the "Bicycle Girl" . . . the legless girl that Rick comes across in the series premiere.
Then, there was another, four-part, 25-minute web series, which was loosely connected to the show. At one point, a character takes some of Rick's clothes.
TIME TO START DECORATING FOR MONEY!!
ABC is developing a new reality competition about people's insane holiday decorating. It's called "Lights, Camera, Christmas!", and it will air this December . . . although there's no specific premiere date yet.
Here's how it works: 16 families have been chosen to compete, based on their previous decorating accomplishments. Four families will compete in each of the first four weeks, after being given 21 days to trick out their homes.
The winners of each week will advance to the "final round," which involves them being flown to a "secret location," where they'll have one last challenge. The overall winner will receive $50,000.
