While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • What a weave the Web has woven with the Demi Moore saga (and please, all, take with the grains of salt from Sajak's margarita glass):
    • There's the report that alleges she'd been doing "whip-its," in which one inhales dangerous amounts of nitrous oxide. (Her rep has no comment on the allegations.) [TMZ]
    • There's also that rumor she's out of the hospital. (Her rep still has no comment.) [E!]
    • And after that, news that her 911 call will be released...but it'll also be edited. [People/L.A. Times]
  • Meanwhile, what's Demi's estranged husband Ashton Kutcher been up to over the past few days? Brazil. It's said he's now back in the States, though. [Us Weekly]
  • Drew Carey is once again a single man, as he and his fiancee Nicole Jaracz have split up. [Gossip Cop]
  • Amy Winehouse may be gone, but her bouffant lives on in Jean Paul  Gaultier's Paris haute couture runway show. (Photos at the link!) [E!]
  • Some of you may be eagerly anticipating seeing Lily Collins and Julia Roberts in "Mirror, Mirror" the minute it's released on March 16 (no sarcasm - maybe you are!) but you're going to have to wait just a bit longer: The movie's been pushed back to March 30. [EW]

Pitt 'would like to' marry Jolie, won't say if he's proposed

When it comes to celebrity couples who have been together for so long some assume they've already wed, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are certainly prime examples.

And yet, seven years and six kids later, they still haven't tied the knot, as they've famously said that they'll get married when it's legally possible for everyone to do so.

However, 48-year-old Pitt thinks that they may not hold out.

Ne-Yo named A&R exec at Motown Records

As Ne-Yo gets ready to release a new album with Motown Records, the Grammy-winning R&B singer will also be serving as the company's senior vice president of A&R, Motown said in a statement Wednesday.

In that position, the 29-year-old singer will scout for new names to sign and serve as a producer and mentor for Motown's stable of talent. Ne-Yo's fifth studio album is expected to arrive from Motown this summer.

"I'm a combination of excited, honored and terrified all at once!" Ne-Yo says in the statement. "Excited about a new beginning here at Motown, honored that I've been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility, [and] TERRIFIED because I know that playing this role, in the fashion of one of my idols and my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson, these are big shoes to fill...but trust, I can handle it."

To top it off, the singer has also signed up for "The Voice," and will serve as a mentor for Cee Lo Green's picks on the NBC singing competition show.

'The Artist's' Uggie to retire from films

Just as he's starting to get mainstream recognition, one of the stars from "The Artist" is ready to step away from his career.

Uggie, the spotlight-stealing Jack Russell who has been the rave of this year's awards season, is said to be retiring from film after he gets through this round of ceremonies. (Cue the howls of heartbreak!)

"He's at the stage where he just says, 'I think I want to go and lay in the sun by the pool,'" one of Uggie's trainers, Sarah Clifford, explained to the Hollywood Reporter.

Why Seal is still wearing his wedding ring

Seal may have just had a very public split from his wife, Heidi Klum, but don't expect to see him without his ring anytime soon.

The singer, who's been making the media rounds for his new album and talking plenty about Klum, tells Piers Morgan in an interview airing Friday that this isn't about publicity.

"There was some malicious thing that 'Oh, he's still wearing his wedding ring, he's doing it for show, or whatever,'" Seal says of the chatter. "I'm still wearing this wedding ring because I'm still married to this incredible woman.You don't all of a sudden from one day to the next, unless you're those types of people, just all of a sudden say, 'Oh I hate you' and take off your wedding ring."

Adele's '21' hits 17 weeks at No. 1

Adele's '21' hits 17 weeks at No. 1

It seems the industry is in a contest to figure out all the different ways to say, "Adele's '21' is a really, really big hit."

The album has spent 17 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the longest an album has spent in the top spot since the soundtrack to Whitney Houston's movie with Kevin Costner,"The Bodyguard," accumulated 20 weeks at No. 1 from 1992 to 1993.

(Alternatively, you can interpret Adele's reign as tying with Billy Ray Cyrus, as his 1992 album, "Some Gave All," also had 17 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.)

Last week, when Adele's "21" notched 16 weeks at No. 1, we were informed that it was the most weeks at No. 1 of any album since 1998's "Titanic" soundtrack also racked up 16 weeks in the top spot. (We have a feeling Celine Dion's heart will go on, though...)
