While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Jillian Michaels, a.k.a. the lady who will scare you into losing weight, is returning to "The Biggest Loser." And that's not the only change: The show will now also feature teen contestants. [E!]
  • New music's on the way from The Rolling Stones - two new songs to be exact. The two tracks will appear on a new greatest hits collection called "GRRR!," which makes us wonder of the Stones are quietly taking a page from Tony the Tiger. [Billboard]
  • Lil Wayne's "Dedication 4" mixtape has been positively illuminating, if we say so ourselves. Not only have we uncovered Nicki Minaj's feelings about Mitt Romney and lazy b****es, but we've also learned that Lil' Wayne wouldn't mind giving porn a go. [HuffPo]
  • Minka Kelly, if you believe the gossip, really "did a number" on Chris Evans when they dated in 2007. But Evans is apparently letting the past stay in the past as he's rumored to be giving romance with Kelly a second try. However, his so-called "friend" - who should really refrain from dishing on the guy's dating life like this! - has said that Evans is "still a little insecure, so he's being cautious."  [Us Weekly]
  • We love this idea and we're keeping our fingers crossed that it'll be well-executed: Starz has placed an order for a 10-episode drama based on Philippa Gregory's "The Cousins War" books. [THR]

Overheard: Kristen Stewart on fame

Kristen Stewart is famous enough to command a cover on Vogue U.K. - a first for the "Twilight Saga" star - but the 22-year-old still hasn't figured out how to handle the glare of the spotlight.

Although Vogue doesn't make it clear when the interview was held, it's fair to say Stewart's fame has only intensified, thanks to a private matter going very, very public. And being in the public eye, the actress says, is not at all her strong point.
