While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • With older sisters like the Kardashians, it seems only natural that Kendall and Kylie Jenner would start a blog to publicly document their lives. We're interested to see what they post, but are slightly confused to discover school apparently "just let out for summer." (Celebuzz)
  • They've piqued our anticipation with a single here and there, but Coldplay has finally announced its next album will be released in the U.K. October 24 and October 25 in the U.S. The album's title is cryptic - "Mylo Xyloto" - but the British rockers usually don't disappoint. (MTV)
  • Guess it helps to have parents like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie when you want to get onto the big screen. Ten-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt is set to star in "Battling Boy," produced by Pitt's company. (Huffington Post)
  • With Benjamin Bratt returning to "Modern Family," one of TV's funniest sitcoms is bound for drama in the Jay-Gloria-Manny family. (Entertainment Weekly)
  • Lil Wayne and Drake don't have quite the same star power as Kanye and Jay-Z, but "She Will" seems destined to be a hit. (Rolling Stone)
  • If only everybody could pull off hot pink hair like Dianna Agron. The "Glee" actress is one of many celebs who have been experimenting with a new color. (PEOPLE)

Kathy Griffin vs. 'Hoarders' in Emmy fight

See if you can follow this TV feud, because it’s pretty funny. To promote its Emmy nomination, A&E bought out a print ad for “Hoarders that used quotes from celebrity fan Kathy Griffin.

The problem? “Hoarders” and Bravo’s “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” are both nominated in the reality program category.

Not happy with her competitor’s tactic, Griffin has come out with her own Emmy promo ad that reads, "Quoting me in an Emmy ad? Bravo, Hoarders. BRAVO." Griffin is pictured amongst stacks of newspapers and magazines, a la “Hoarders.”

Top TV shows watched by men

The Hollywood Reporter reveals the shows men like best, and most of the results aren’t too surprising.

According to Nielsen data, favorites include “Family Guy,” “Jersey Shore,” “The Voice,” “Tosh.0” and “Pawn Stars.” (This is excluding sports, of course.)

But the No. 1 show watched by men may not be what you would expect: it's "American Idol."

Weeklies cheat sheet: Jennifer Aniston may or may not have gone to the chapel

Now that we've all calmed down following Jennifer Lopez's split, the media glare is firmly trained on Jennifer Aniston and a peculiar white dress she was photographed in.

To some, that white dress says "I just got married to Justin Theroux and I'm going to have a baby!!" To others - like perhaps Aniston's stylist - it says, "this is what one should wear while attending the U.K. premiere of 'Horrible Bosses.'"

Until next week...

'SYTYCD' winner: I struggled with ballroom, hip-hop

The day after winning "So You Think You Can Dance," Melanie Moore could not believe that she got 47 percent of the vote between the final four dancers.

"Going into the finale I definitely felt I had a chance but standing next to Sasha, Marko and Tadd, I wasn’t able to pick a favorite," she told reporters on Friday. "I felt confident with what I had done in the course of the competition. I didn’t want to put any extra pressure on myself by thinking I was a favorite, but I felt it was worth going for."

Even when it was down to the final two, Melanie felt that Sasha would emerge victorious.
