Demi Lovato fans rush stage, pause concert

Demi Lovato fans in Paraguay weren't going to stand for a stage being in between them and their favorite star.

As Celebuzz reports, the 19-year-old singer was in the country Thursday for a show, and was talking to the crowd when her fans anticipated that she was going to let some of the audience up on stage. But before she could clarify her instructions, one fan hopped on stage and rushed over to Lovato, throwing her arms around her in a hug.

As security tried to remove that fan, others began to pour onto the stage as Lovato swiftly removed herself from the disruption.

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:

  • The Steve Jobs indie biopic that's in the works - you know, the one starring Ashton Kutcher as the late Jobs - just might've spotted its Steve Wozniak in "Book of Mormon's" Josh Gad. [THR]
  • Nicki Minaj's "Starships" video is here. Yay? [YouTube]
  • We love you, Jennifer Love Hewitt, but it wasn't until we found out that Betty White was going to guest star had we any desire to tune in to your Lifetime show, "The Client List." [EW]
  • Director Adam McKay sure loves to resurrect an old concept: He's in talks to helm a potential remake of "Uptown Saturday Night," the 1974 film that starred Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier, once he's done bringing back Ron Burgundy for "Anchorman 2." [Deadline]
  • The Ashton Kutcher/Mila Kunis connection, however absurd the actress may find it to be, will not die: Friday brings a report that Kutcher was Kunis' first kiss. Because we all know the subtext of that means they're destined to be together and make babies. [People]
  • Well, well, well, what do we have here? A bit of gossip that Lindsay Lohan's return to a set - specifically, that of "Glee," where she's making a cameo - didn't go swimmingly? You don't say....  [E!]
  • Jessica Simpson, in all of her blue-snakeskin-caftan glory, is captured in this video from her baby shower that was thrown last month. [X17]

'Avengers' opens strong at global box office

"The Avengers" doesn't open for another week in the States (so close, fans - so close!) but it's already doing gangbusters overseas.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel's superhero ensemble film brought in $17.1 million from 10 countries on opening day Wednesday, including $6.2 million from "Thor" actor Chris Hemsworth's native Australia. Italy's box office saw $3.7 million in receipts for "The Avengers"; France, $2.9 million; Taiwan, $1.3 million; and just under a million in New Zealand.

Unsurprisingly, studio Disney tells EW it's "extremely encouraged" by how well "Avengers" is playing in overseas markets, and the early tracking for the movie can only be strengthening that sentiment.

Selena Gomez 'duets' with Selena on tribute album

Beloved deceased singer Selena isn't being resurrected as a hologram, as we'd hoped, but fans can hear her sing again - and she's doing it with another popular Selena: the teen star Selena Gomez.

The chart-topping Latin songstress died tragically in 1995 when Gomez was a mere toddler. Now 19, Gomez has recorded a "duet" with the late Selena on the tribute album "Enamorada De Ti," and Selena's brother A.B. is singing Gomez's praises.

"She did an amazing job," he told E! of Gomez's work on the record, adding that Gomez "was named after my sister. That's pretty awesome."

One wild stag party (and Wheaton) on 'The Big Bang Theory'

As promised, Howard's stag party was one to remember on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory."

Wil Wheaton showed up, and despite burying the hatchet, still annoyed Sheldon. Kripke was mad there weren't any strippers, and comic book store owner Stuart was just depressed. Sheldon told some wildly inappropriate jokes - though Raj outdid him.

Unfortunately, Wil's presence once again spelled trouble: he posted one of Raj's drunken rants about Howard having been with a prostitute on the Internet.... and Bernadette saw it.
