Today's news you might've missed:
We know by now that first lady Michelle Obama isn't afraid to get on the dance floor, and this time, FLOTUS has taken her grooves to Nickelodeon's "iCarly."
Obama will appear in the January 16 episode as part of her Joining Forces initiative that supports military families, Entertainment Weekly reports.
In the (adorable) clip, Miranda Cosgrove's Carly and her pals are given a verbal pat on the back by the first lady, who tells them she's proud of the way they set up a webcast to celebrate the birthday of Carly's dad, an Air Force colonel, when he couldn't make it home.
"X Factor" winner Melanie Amaro has inked a deal with Epic Records, making "X Factor" mentor/judge L.A. Reid her boss.
Reid, the Chairman/CEO of the label, says in a statement that he "joined 'The X Factor' to be able to discover undeniable talent such as Melanie."
He adds that he believes we've "only scratched the surface on uncovering her talent and her inevitable journey to super-stardom.”
There's a biopic about Elton John in the works, and the musician already knows who he wants to land the lead role: Justin Timberlake.
Elton told the Los Angeles Times that he has a "wish list" of potential stars who could play him, but that the "Cry Me A River" crooner is a favorite.
"No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb," the Brit legend tells the L.A. Times.
Studio Paramount has announced that they're sticking with an old familiar for 2012: "Paranormal Activity."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a fourth installment of the franchise - which has bowed in theaters every fall since 2009 - is slated for this year, although the studio has yet to schedule a release date.
When "Paranormal Activity 3" debuted in October 2011, it set a record for being the highest grossing open ever for that month. The movie, which took fans back to the early days of the creepy tale, earned $54 million its opening weekend after being produced for just $5 million. (Do we really need to wonder why we're getting a fourth movie?)
Variety reports that Paramount earned $5.17 billion worldwide at the box office in 2011, with $1.96 billion coming from the States.
As he gets ready for his third marriage, Steven Tyler says he's ready to change his ways.
While chatting with Oprah Winfrey on her OWN show, "Oprah's Next Chapter," 63-year-old Tyler admitted that he's made some mistakes, but that it is possible to be a rock star and be monogamous.
"Yes, it is [possible for me]," he told Winfrey. "I don't want to hurt anybody again. For all the divorces I've had, I hurt those girls deeply. It was some behavior that I'm ashamed of and I shouldn't've done."
