Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Prince is ready to bestow us with fresh tunes. The music legend has signed a deal with Warner Bros. that'll result in a new album, a deluxe re-issue of the classic "Purple Rain" and more never-before-heard tracks to come. [USA Today]
  • Kim Novak has read every mean thing said about her when she showed up at the Oscars this year, and she's ready to put her haters in their rightful place. "Years ago, I walked away from Hollywood partially because I didn’t stand up to the bullies," she writes in a Facebook post. "I’m not going to deny that I had fat injections in my face. ... (But) I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies." [Facebook]
  • The only thing related to "Scandal's" third season finale that isn't a shocker? The episode's ratings being sky-high with 10.5 million tuning in. That makes the third season finale the most-watched yet. [TVBytheNumbers]
  • Get ready to "Awwww!" Idris Elba is now a proud papa of one. He and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth welcomed son Winston on April 17. [Idris Elba's Twitter]

Lorde's amazing meet-and-greet, and more news to note

Colbert, Letterman to meet on 'Late Show,' and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • We're both excited and nervous to watch "The Late Show with David Letterman" next Tuesday. Stephen Colbert is going to be on the talk show for the first time since it was announced he'll be taking over the CBS show after Letterman retires in 2015.
  • Ooh, "Bachelor" burn! For Andi Dorfman's season, ABC has rolled out a promotional poster that takes a major dig at former "Bachelor" Juan Galavis. Almost makes us feel bad for the guy. [ABC]
  • Tracy Morgan is worried about his old "30 Rock" co-star Alec Baldwin, and really wishes the guy would just settle down and raise his kids. [NYT]
  • As if Mother's Day isn't already fraught with anxiety - so much pressure to find the right gift and master brunch! - NBC is turning it into a horror show. The network will air the first part of the four-part miniseries, which stars Zoe Saldana as the ill-fated Rosemary, on May 11.
  • FYI, Brandy's single again. She and her fiance have ended their engagement. [Us Weekly]

DiCaprio takes Coachella, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Could this be Leonardo DiCaprio dancing like no one's watching at Coachella? He was spotted wearing similar clothes over the weekend ...
  • After totally nailing his portrayal of the sadistic (literal) bastard King Joffrey on "Game of Thrones," Jack Gleeson is breaking our hearts with the suggestion that he's about done with acting. "I’ve been acting since age 8," Gleeson tells Entertainment Weekly. "I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to. ... When you make a living from something, it changes your relationship with it. It’s not like I hate it, it’s just not what I want to do." [EW]
  • James Cameron is planning to knock out the next three "Avatar" movies like hotcakes: they're all going to go into production at the same time, and the scripts for "Avatar 2," "3" and "4" are roughly six weeks away from being complete. [Reddit]
  • Lana Del Rey's new single "West Coast" is basically the perfect soundtrack to all those Instagram photos you're seeing from Coachella right now:
  • And if you need an antidote to that persistent hippie-chic sunniness, try The Black Keys' new track, "Turn Blue":
  • Miley Cyrus is so heartbroken over losing her dog Floyd that she hasn't been able to keep the new puppy her mom bought in an attempt to comfort her. The baby pooch, Moonie, has gone to live with a friend's mom. [Us Weekly]

The MTV Movie Awards' Paul Walker tribute, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was "so important to the MTV audience" that the network is going to feature a tribute to the actor at its Movie Awards on Sunday. "People haven't had the chance to really celebrate him, and this is the place to do it," says the show's executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic. [MTV]
  • We hope Drake isn't off crying somewhere right now. The response he received from the public while he was in disguise on "Kimmel" Thursday was fairly brutal. (But on the other hand, we know an emotional Drake also makes the best music, so, tossup.)
  • But let's turn our thoughts to another rapper, one by the name of French Montana. Khloe Kardashian has been spending so much time with him lately the rest of us are wondering if they're a newly minted item. [People]
  • The first post-breakup appearance is taken very seriously by celebrities and non-celebrities alike. (Do you really want your recent ex seeing you in disheveled sweatpants carrying enough takeout for 12? Didn't think so.) And in the case of Chris Martin's split from Gwyneth Paltrow, he's pulled off the PBA flawlessly. At the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Martin didn't have a ring but was wearing one very big smile. [Us Weekly]
  • Ellen DeGeneres may not have a taste for late night TV, but we do hope she would consider a co-host. We could watch her chop it up with Johnny Depp about his Barbies habit daily:
