While you were working ....

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "Today's" fourth hour can get a little awkward, normally in a humorous way, but Wednesday morning was a marked exception.

She later realized her mistake and tweeted an apology to the "Madagascar 3" actor, who handled the situation with total class. [Today /MSNBC]
  • John Mayer can't sing at the moment, but hopefully he can take comfort in having another No. 1 album with "Born and Raised." [Billboard]
  • Everyone has weighed in on "Girls" - everyone but James Franco that is. And since we know you couldn't possibly form an opinion on the controversial HBO show without Franco's input, be sure to read up on his "Dude's take on 'Girls'" at the link. [HuffPo]
  • An Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore reunion!? Sorry, no. [People]
  • We still haven't figured out why there's so much investment in who Rihanna might be dating, but for the curious, New York Knicks baller J.R. Smith is rumored to be the latest. [NYDN]

Tyler Perry defends Bobbi Kristina: Leave her alone

Although reports have suggested the contrary, Bobbi Kristina didn't walk off the set of Tyler Perry's "For Better or Worse" because she's grieving the recent death of her mother, Whitney Houston.

The 19-year-old has simply completed her duties, a source close to Tyler Perry tells CNN.

The prolific filmmaker also said as much on his website, explaining that "there is no way [Bobbi Kristina] could have walked off the set because we have finished taping for the season."

You might be a sociopath if you don't like 'Snow White'

If you can't appreciate the "Snow White" story, Kristen Stewart's a little concerned.

The 22-year-old actress, who stars as the fair princess in this weekend's "Snow White and the Huntsman," told CNN that she can't imagine why someone wouldn't be able to enjoy the "Snow White" tale, seeing that it's lasted through generations.

"It's so completely fundamental I think you would have to be kind of a sociopath not to connect to the story," Stewart said. "It's about being good, it's about being a part of a whole and sort of valuing more than your looks."

Mary J. Blige takes steps to get foundation on track

It's been a rough few months to be Mary J. Blige.

First there was that controversial Burger King commercial she starred in for the chain's crispy chicken wrap (which, following criticism, was quickly snatched out of rotation), and now her charity is being sued for allegedly not paying a $250,000 bank loan.

According to a court filing dated May 15, her charity, Foundation For Advancement of Women Now - otherwise known as FFAWN - is being sued for the principal amount, interest and attorney fees for the loan that was taken out in June 2011.
