While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • SBNation.com's reporting that Madonna will perform during the next Super Bowl halftime show, but her rep is a little more cautious, telling CNN that there's "nothing to confirm at this time." Fun fact from CNN senior entertainment producer Denise Quan: A female solo artist has not headlined the Super Bowl's halftime show since 2004, when Janet Jackson had that "wardrobe malfunction." The only other female artist to grace the halftime stage (as part of a group) since 2004 was Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas earlier this year.
  • We knew Tupac had a wealth of posthumous material, but we weren't expecting a sex tape. Rumors suggest that there's footage of a 1991 encounter with the rapper...who apparently showed just how well he can "multitask." [TMZ]
  • Russell Brand, comedian and Katy Perry's husband, was just J/K'ing about not being allowed into Canada, guys. He tweeted that Canadian officials weren't letting him into the country on Saturday, when in reality, he hadn't left California. Now you have to apologize to the Canadians you cursed in his honor. [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • Rapunzel, as we like to say, is having "a moment." The Disney character already served as inspiration for last year's lauded family film "Tangled," and now she's been honored as the 10th character to be added to the Disney Princess line. There was a celebration at London's Kensington Palace in her honor - no, seriously. [Disney]
  • We already know Taylor Swift has some solid MC skills, so it's not too surprising that she did another rap rendition at a recent Atlanta concert. In a hometown touch, a recently freed T.I. was available to join her. [Radar Online]

Kanye's Paris Fashion Week debut gets mixed reviews

Kanye West’s highly anticipated fashion line has finally made its debut, and Fashionista.com reports that it was not exactly a smashing success.

The rapper showed his collection during Paris Fashion Week, and fashion critics began to post unimpressed remarks even as the first models were going down the runway.

A pack of celebrity pals and fashion heavyweights showed up for the Saturday night show, including Anna Wintour, Jared Leto, Lindsay Lohan, Ciara and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and the event was certainly “monumental,” as Ciara tweeted.

'Sister, Sister' stars Tia and Tamera Mowry, all grown up

Actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry's hit Style Network reality show, "Tia & Tamera," has been renewed for a second season.

Best known for their '90s sitcom "Sister, Sister," (TGIF lineup, anyone?) the identical twins are now 33-years-old. Tamera, who was born two minutes before Tia, recently married Fox News correspondent Adam Housley. Tia was Tamera's very pregnant maid of honor, and "The Game" actress - who wed actor Cory Hardrict back in 2008 - gave birth to son Cree in June.

Tia and Tamera are still acting, and they also run their own production company, Twilight Productions (no affiliation with Edward Cullen and/or Bella Swan). CNN spoke to Tamera Mowry about acting, twin sisterhood, married life and the realities of having a reality show.

Martha Stewart's daughter dishes dirt on mom in book

A new tell-all book by Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis has been excerpted by U.K. paper the Daily Mail, People reports, and it sounds like it's a doozy.

"Martha does everything better! You can't win!" Alexis, 46, writes of mom Martha, 70, in “Whateverland: Learning to Live Here.”

The scathing tome comes as no surprise, considering Alexis has made a career of mocking her mother on the show “Whatever, Martha.”
