While you were working...

[By the by, we noticed some of you like to have a little fun in this post. And that's fine by us! Consider this the "free" post -- come here and chat (responsibly) about topics unrelated to what's been up that day. This way, you guys can meet and greet here, leaving the comments on other posts to focus solely on the topic at hand. Have at it!]

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Here's a photo Summit released today of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in their movie, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," looking like Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson with red contacts in. Are we sure this isn't a re-purposed pap shot during a walk of shame?
  • When Zac Efron injures himself in "fruit-related" accidents, he thinks it's funny to blame it on "crazed fans" while talking to members of the press. Ha...ha? [Us Weekly]
  • Wiz Khalifa, a rapper who is blatantly honest about his adoration for weed, was handed a citation in Nashville for marijuana possession. Best part of the story? The police say they saw him throw a blunt out of the window as they walked into his hotel room. Nice save, Wiz. [RS]
  • James Franco is hoping Rihanna's request that he join her in her "We Found Love" video means there's a mutual love between them. [MTV] (Why do we think Drake is somewhere silently stewing at the moment?....)
  • Take a look at Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz in the first stills from Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." [EW]

So, about those 'Magic Mike' costumes...

We're so happy to see that the stars of "Magic Mike" are having as much fun with the film's concept as the rest of us, particularly when it comes to their costumes - or lack thereof (we hope!).

Word has it that Matthew McConaughey will be wearing a pair of pants that will give his backside plenty of um, breathing room, and while he wouldn't confirm to New York magazine's Vulture that the pants are indeed a**less, he did say that he created them.

"I did design some special pants," the 42-year-old actor said, and his co-star Channing Tatum - who provides the basis for the male stripper movie, as he himself used to "dance" once upon a time - backs him up.

The Throwback: 'In Living Color' honored as 'groundbreaking'

"In the early days, TV was in black and white," Whoopi Goldberg said as she presented the Groundbreaking Award to the cast of "In Living Color" at the TV Land Awards earlier this month.

"But let's be honest," she went on. "It was really more white than black. But in 1990, a new show changed the face of television, not to mention comedy."

Created by actor/writer Keenen Ivory Wayans, the sketch comedy series "In Living Color" ran on Fox from 1990-1994, and "brought a new multiculturalism to the primetime variety genre, which basically means there was nothing like it on television anywhere," continued Goldberg.
