While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We won't get to have the Channing Tatum double-feature we were so excited for, now that "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" has been bumped from a June 29 release to March 29, 2013, so that it can be in 3-D. (Because that's so, so necessary, clearly.) Guess we'll just have to see "Magic Mike" twice, then. [EW]
  • New music is on the way from Justin Timberlake, but sorry fans - it’s not in the form of a new album. "The Social Network" star will compose his very first movie score for the upcoming film “The Devil in the Deep Blue Sea.” [Billboard]
  • So that one time, when Nicole Kidman gave Zac Efron a golden shower in a movie that just premiered at Cannes .... Yeah. We think we're just going to leave it there. This review says it all. [Vulture]
  • Cannes must be awfully romantic/a great place to get some publicity for PDA: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were caught so-close-but-not-quite kissing (at least, to our eyes) at the film fest, as were Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. [People/E!]
  • We know the jeweler, thanks to Ace Young's shout-out, so we might as well get a close-up of the ring he gave to Diana DeGarmo when he popped the question on "Idol." [Us Weekly]
  • Oh, and also: "The Exorcist" will reportedly soon be a 10-episode TV series. Because,  you know, why not? [Vulture]

Night of the catsuit on 'Idol': Who wore it best?

A few other things happened on "Idol" Wednesday night, aside from naming the season's winner and watching Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young hug it up after getting engaged.

Other things such as those spangly, sparkly, uber-fitted catsuits worn by Chaka Khan and former "Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino.

Each vocal powerhouse took the stage to perform during the season 11 finale, with Chaka donning a rust-colored number that showed off svelte curves as she rocked to her top hits along with some backup from the top 12 women finalists on "I'm Every Woman."

The Situation: I'm not the same person I was before

A newly sober Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino says he doesn’t worry about any of the party-filled temptations that will come with returning to the “Jersey Shore” when he heads back for a sixth season.

The reality show star sought treatment for a prescription drug problem in the spring, and he's told MTV that he's mentally in a different place now that he’s kicked his prescription pill habit, and that the old vices won’t have a hold over him.

"Mike today? I wake every day these days with a smile," The Situation said. "Happy to be alive. Happy to have the family that I have. Happy to have the fans that I have, the friends. Happy to be involved in the show ... almost like a smell-the-roses moment. ... I know where I am and I know where I'm gonna be and that's all that counts."

'Revenge' season finale not for the faint of heart

[If you haven’t watched the “Revenge” season finale yet, stop reading now … and get yourself to a TV immediately!]

Did that really just happen?

During the last 15 minutes of “Revenge’s” first season finale, you-know-what hit the fan. And I’m not talking about one of those battery-operated, kid-friendly foam fans. Think jet turbine (cough-foreshadowing-cough).

Let’s start from the beginning, shall we:

The plot surrounding “Community” creator Dan Harmon's replacement has thickened.
