While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Rihanna (who, apparently, prefers to get in shape in an itty-bitty bikini) will perform with Coldplay for the first time at the 54th annual Grammys. Also performing: Paul McCartney!
  • Whitney Cummings is the latest to come to the defense of Lana Del Rey. Bottom line? Performing is hard, and everyone should learn to chillax. [Whitney Cummings' Tumblr]
  • Ladies and gentleman, please remain seated as we alert you that reports are saying William Shatner's been axed as Priceline's "The Negotiator." [EW]
  • The bada** honey badger more than likely doesn't care, but there's a TV show being developed around the viral video character. [THR]
  • There's a tabloid rumor going around that O.J. Simpson is Khloe Kardashian's dad. We don't know how to wrap our minds around this gossip, so we'll point you in the direction of Kim Kardashian's joking tweet, which was posted Thursday along with a photo of the offending headline: "Now we have all the answers!

Katherine Heigl: It took a while to gain daughter's trust

When Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley adopted daughter Naleigh in 2009, 33-year-old Heigl wasn't expecting to not bond with their new baby right away.

The "One for the Money" actress tells CNN that at first, Naleigh gravitated more toward her husband.

"[Josh] would just come into the room and make her giggle and make her laugh," Heigl recalls. "I would always think, 'Something's wrong, something's wrong. She doesn't like me, she doesn't want me.' So I think it is sort of a female thing."

'Idol' ratings, with 24 percent dip, still beat competitors

"American Idol" made its premiere last night, but the long-running series can't quite boast powerhouse ratings.

Entertainment Weekly reports that last night's 11th season premiere earned a 7.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, a 24 percent drop in ratings since last year's season 10 premiere.

Although 21.9 million tuned in overall, Wednesday night's bow was "Idol's" biggest year-over-year ratings decline ever for a premiere episode.

Photo: Snooki goes au naturel

The amount of fake tanning and bronzer the cast of "Jersey Shore" relies on is so immense it's comical, but for once, we get to see one of the show's stars without her trademark orange glow.

Snooki tweeted a photo of herself on a "no makeup day" on Wednesday, and fans immediately responded to the fresh-faced look.

"[You] look great without it u should go natural more often," said one Twitter follower, while another was stunned into swearing.

Overheard: Why not all celebs choose unique baby names

Selma Blair recently told TMZ that she’s a fan of “tried and true” baby names.

But, without mentioning a certain Blue Ivy, Apple or Aleph, the mom to 6-month-old Arthur - her son with fashion designer beau Jason Bleick - said it’s not because she doesn’t appreciate unique monikers.

“I was gonna name him a weird, obscure name, but then I was afraid ‘cause if they’re not good looking and they have a weird name they’re really screwed. Like, a good looking kid can get away with a lot of stuff. … I didn’t know if he was gonna be really homely, so he’d better have something tried and true like Arthur.”

Harsh, or does she have a point?
