While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Beyonce's maternity leave (of sorts) is coming to an end: The new mom has lined up three concert dates for Memorial Day weekend in Atlantic City, New Jersey. [RS]
  • If you thought a pregnancy would derail the "Jersey Shore" train(wreck), you clearly don't watch enough MTV. The series will be back for a sixth season, featuring Snooki's baby bump in all of its spray-tanned glory. Production is set to hit Seaside Heights once again this summer.
  • Don't worry, your invitation to Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy's secret nuptials didn't get lost in the mail: Despite an interview from Kate's mom Goldie Hawn that seems to suggest as much, the two aren't married. [E!]
  • To top off its awesomeness, the "Walking Dead" finale for its second season can now also boast record ratings, with 9 million tuning in. [LAT]
  • Katy Perry doing a cover of "N****s in Paris." Yes, this apparently really happened. [Vulture]
  • Oh,  hello Lana Del Rey music video for "Blue Jeans," which, as Popdust helpfully notes, isn't blue and doesn't contain jeans. [Popdust]
  • Get your pap shots of LiLo while you can: The star is reportedly starting a self-imposed house arrest until her probation's up in two weeks. [TMZ]
  • We're so ready for "Mad Men" to return this weekend, and are therefore all about these old-school ads in Newsweek's "Mad Men"-themed issue. [Newsweek/Daily Beast]

Watch: 'Prometheus,' 'Lincoln,' 'Snow White and the Huntsman' trailers

Fans frolicked to this past weekend's Wondercon (sort of a little sister to San Diego Comic-Con), which had moved for the first time to Anaheim, California. And along with the proximity to Hollywood, came more stars.

Aside from panels for movies like "The Amazing Spider-Man," "Resident Evil: Retribution" and even "21 Jump Street" (which was already in theaters), new trailers arrived for two hotly anticipated summer movies.

We still know next-to-nothing about Ridley Scott's science fiction epic, "Prometheus," and the new trailer filled in a little more backstory about the movie, written by "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof.

'Eastbound & Down': KP vs. DJ Blu Ray

The intro to Sunday's "Eastbound & Down" took me back to my junior high school heyday. You know, when you and a friend would go into a local gift shop and steal everything in sight for the mere rush of saying you did.

OK, so maybe that’s just me - and apparently KP’s dad. He and KP’s mentally challenged brother, Casper, open our show with a heist to remember.

Over in Myrtle Beach, KP drops in on his girlfriend Andrea and her friends having a dorm room get together. “We’re not kids anymore, we’re in college!” she proclaims as he apologizes for the whole "Shane back from the dead" joke that didn’t go over so well. It’s time to grow up, and you wonder if KP ever will.

'Styled by June's' Ambrose ready to reinvent celebs

The entertainment industry can turn quickly on a star, unabashedly taking down a celeb for even a tepid style transgression.

But image is tantamount in this business, and no one knows the necessity of having a look speak for you like veteran celebrity stylist and author June Ambrose.

The style guru is pulling back the curtain on her process with VH1's new reality show, "Styled By June," and she explains that her job isn't just to help someone sharpen their sartorial sense - it's to help them rediscover who they are.
