While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • How nice of ABC to offer the full seasons of both "Revenge" and "Once Upon a Time" online so you can play catch-up as the rest of your favorite programming starts to take a holiday hiatus. We've already sung our love song to "Revenge," but if you haven't checked it out, better late than never. [EW]
  • Nicki Minaj's reaction to being kissed by Madonna: "It felt sooooo good." Actually, make that a "soooooooooo good." Also: "Sooooo soft! Like what?!?!?!" Perhaps the answer to that question is "like whoa," Miss Minaj. [PopDust]
  • Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez did apparently take a "secret wedding trip" to Mexico...but not because they're getting hitched. They were simply attending the matrimony of one of Gomez's friends - and no, they're also not engaged. [TMZ/Us Weekly]
  • We've been seeing less of the Kardashians as of late, but here's some gossip about Rob: Supposedly, he's now dating Rita Ora. [NYPost]
  • Now that they have Gloria Estefan to play Santana's mom on "Glee," rapper Pitbull is in talks to play her brother. [E!]

Lea Michele explains name change to Leno

“Glee” starlet Lea Michele has made a name for herself without using her actual last name, but she opened up about why she dropped it Wednesday on “The Tonight Show."

It's not unheard of for Hollywood stars to adopt a so-called mainstream moniker or just drop the last name altogether, but Lea says her new name was born of schoolyard bullying, not celebrity styling.
