While you were working ...

  • No one can really answer the question of why John Mayer cut his hair, not even his hair stylist ... although they seemed to have a telepathic understanding that his longer locks needed to disappear. [Us Weekly]

Stevie Wonder explains Frank Ocean comment

This must be the holiday weekend for further explanations, because, like Seal before him, Stevie Wonder is also taking a moment to clarify remarks he's made in the press, with his being about hot topic Frank Ocean.

Ocean's musical style has drawn comparisons to Wonder's work, and thus the young artist - whose admission that he previously fell in love with a man was met with intense media coverage - was one of the topics in Wonder's recent conversation with U.K. paper The Guardian.

Comments: Top five zingers for Russell Crowe

[Editor's note: We're listening to readers, and we occasionally like to feature notable comments we see on CNN.com.]

Poor Russell Crowe. The Oscar-winning actor from "A Beautiful Mind," "Gladiator," "Robin Hood" and "The Insider" had a little kayaking mishap over the weekend. The Coast Guard had to rescue the actor and a friend off the coast of Long Island after they called for help on Saturday night.

Crowe later quipped that the pair "ran out of day." He's doing fine afterward, so the incident got a lot of commenters coming up with some clever remarks and one-liners. We picked five favorites and shared them below.

Heidi Klum: I've moved on, and so has Seal

Their split has gotten messy in the media, but Heidi Klum is setting the record straight.

Anyone hoping for the chance of reconciliation between Klum and her ex Seal should prepare to have those hopes dashed. Klum tells CNN in a statement:

“I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years. Our separation was based on issues between the two of us. Seal has moved on and so have I."

That's not an admission that she's seeing someone new - there's been gossip that a romance might have sparked between Klum and her bodyguard - but it is clear that Klum is putting her seven-year marriage to Seal behind her.

"My priority," she said in the statement, "has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children.”

Kanye considers use of word 'b***h'

Kanye raised plenty of eyebrows a few weeks back when he said his song "Perfect B***h" was inspired by his current lady love, Kim Kardashian.

While Kim was rumored to be A-OK with his use of the term, the same can't be said for everyone else who heard about it. While he didn't acknowledge that song in particular, Kanye did take a moment over the weekend to reflect on the word's use.

'Oogieloves' sets wrong kind of box office record

As the summer movie season draws to a close, we've got box office champions like "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises" ... and then we've got question marks like "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure."

The newly released kids film, which features giant "Teletubbies"-esque creatures along with stars like Jaime Pressly, Cloris Leachman and Toni Braxton, has set the bar for low performance having earned just $674,000 since it opened last Wednesday.
