Today's news you might've missed:
"The Twilight Saga" movies have taken heat for a lot of things - being insipid, melodramatic and/or a poor representation of vampire lore, just to name a few - but the latest installment in the franchise is now being scrutinized for possibly causing seizures.
As cited by U.K. paper The Guardian, there are two reports circulating of moviegoers experiencing adverse health effects during "Breaking Dawn - Part I's" birth scene, described by viewers as graphic.
CBS News' Sacramento station reports that one man was viewing the film with his girlfriend when he began to convulse during the birthing scene.
Nicki Minaj has a release date for her sophomore album. MTV News reports that “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” will drop on February 14, 2012. How romantic!
Fresh off two wins at the 2011 American Music Awards, the rapper tweeted the album news to her 7 million followers earlier this week as fans celebrated the anniversary of her 2010 debut, "Pink Friday."
Although the title of “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” could suggest that it's some sort of re-release, 28-year-old Minaj tweeted confirmation that it’s “ALL new tracks.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kanye West is using the words of 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche to make his case in court.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals is considering whether to uphold the dismissal of a 2010 claim that the rapper stole the song “Stronger" from another artist.
Plaintiff Vincent Peters, in addition to claiming similarity in the use of "Kate Moss" and the title "Stronger," zeroes in on alleged similarities in the chorus. Both sides acknowledge the lyrics are based on Nietzsche's phrase, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."
After 55,723 signatures voted to replace Nickelback's halftime performance for Thursday's Lions-Packers game in Detroit, the sometimes derided band still took the stage.
And, according to USA Today, it seems some in the stands didn't really mind.
The rock band performed their new single, "When We Stand Together," complete with fireworks and 1,000 local dancers in the background.
Suitors wanting to work their way into the Mother Monster's heart should take note: She doesn't settle for less.
The 25-year-old pop star - whom you may have spotted on ABC last night, performing her special, "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" - told Access Hollywood that she looks for a variety of qualities in a potential love.
"Talent and perseverance and pushing the boundaries of love and acceptance," the "Marry the Night" songstress said. Mulling over the question of what it takes to "woo" her, she adds, "I can't really say. It ranges from a really big [bleep] to a degree at Harvard. Just about anything."
