While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Hey, hey, hey, look who's (unsurprisingly) at No. 1: Robin Thicke. The singer now dominates both the Hot 100 and the Billboard 200 albums chart with "Blurred Lines." As it turns out, this album is his first No. 1. [Billboard]
  • Rashida Jones is putting her "Parks and Rec" connections to good use. The actress, who will soon depart the NBC comedy, is working with "Parks" writer Alexandra Rushfield for her next project. [THR]
  • After grieving the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele is returning to work. The actress has shared a photo of herself back on set:

  • A single Beyoncé performance is basically the equivalent of a regular person's cardio for the week, but Queen B had enough energy to both bike to her last Barclays show, and then actually take the stage. [Beyoncé's Instagram]
  • Unfortunately for Amanda Bynes, her very forward tweets to Drake haven't worked. Instead of finding them seductive, Drake says he thought they were "a little weird and disturbing." [XXL]
