Robin Thicke breaks VMAs silence, and more news to note:

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Robin Thicke considers the MTV VMAs a mission accomplished. The singer, in his first time speaking about the incident, has said that he and Miley Cyrus are "both entertainers," and "knew what we were getting ourselves into. ... the VMAs is the perfect place for a little shock and awe." [MTV]
  • By the way: Robin Thicke and his "Blurred Lines" are heading out on tour: [HuffPost]
  • If all publicity is good publicity, then Drake's song release strategy is working. Not everyone loves his latest offering, "Wu-Tang Forever," but it at least it's reminding the public that "Nothing Was the Same" drops September 24. [Vibe]
  • The CW is stepping outside of its usual programming - you know, paranormal romance and drama/comedies about would-be Abercrombie models - to develop a drama on a complicated, real-world issue. Executive produced by "Milk's" Michael London, "ZE" will center on a female-to-male transgendered teen and his family. [Deadline]
  • Don't judge, but we're super excited about this: Colin Firth has joined the team for the live-action CGI Paddington Bear movie the Weinstein Company is working on. Oh, and Nicole Kidman's starring in it too. [THR]
