While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Eminem is back with new music - even though for now it's overshadowed by the sound of rapid-fire gunshots since it's on the "Call of Duty: Ghosts" soundtrack. [EW]
  • With the "Twilight" series coming out on DVD/Blu-ray in its entirety - as a set called "Twilight Forever," no less - it would be understandable if Twihards are reserving hope that the series will, in fact, go on forever. Not so, says the woman who started it all, Stephenie Meyer. "I am so over it," she says of "Twilight." "For me, it’s not a happy place to be." [Variety]
  • Meanwhile, that parking lot confrontation Chris Brown had with Frank Ocean earlier this year has come back to haunt Breezy. The singer has reportedly been hit with a lawsuit over the altercation. [Rolling Stone]
  • The CMA Awards apparently operate by the motto, "if it's not broke, why fix it?" Old pros Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisely will once again host the ceremony. It'll be their sixth time. [CBS]
  • Simon Cowell is probably somewhere breathing a sigh of relief. The woman who is said to be carrying his unborn, Lauren Silverman, has reportedly settled her divorce from her husband - Cowell's friend, Andrew Silverman. [TMZ]
