Shailene Woodley's not a 'Twilight' fan, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • For "Divergent" star Shailene Woodley, not all YA novels and the movies they spawn are made equal. The actress has criticized "Twilight" for sending teens inappropriate messages about relationships. "'Twilight,' I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself!" Woodley said. "What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve." [MTV]
  • Now that we know Rihanna is the one who got Drake hooked on "Breaking Bad," we can't stop envisioning them in their sweats with their hair tied and no makeup on having a binge-fest in a posh hotel room. [NYMag's Vulture]
  • Between Prince and Roy Orbison, there technically is a good foundation for "Pretty Woman" the movie to be turned into a musical, which director Garry Marshall's working on as we speak. [NYPost]
  • Alan Thicke is returning to TV in a potentially inappropriately titled reality series called "Unusually Thicke." Sure enough, his son Robin is expected to make an appearance or two. The series premieres April 16. [TVGuide]
  • There's an alleged "Lindsay Lohan sex list" flying around the Web today that purports to display the names of at least 36 of the stars LiLo's slept with. While we can't endorse the veracity of the list, we do think playing "MSK" with it sounds like a good time. [The Daily Beast]

The story behind McConaughey's 'Alright, alright, alright'

After this awards season, we wouldn't blame Matthew McConaughey if he never wanted to hear "alright, alright, alright" ever again.

The actor's catchphrase from 1993's "Dazed and Confused" was repeated up and down the red carpet and on nearly every awards show stage as he racked up honors for his work in "Dallas Buyers Club."

But before we let those iconic three words go gentle into the night, only ever to be heard on repeat viewings of McConaughey's dramedy classic, let's revisit McConaughey's explanation on how he came up with the oft-repeated saying in the first place.
