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:

A 'Simpsons' mega-marathon, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • You'll need to seriously stock up on doughnuts for this TV marathon. FXX is planning to air every "Simpsons" episode in existence - and there's 552 of them - continuously for 12 days this summer. [Variety]
  • In honor of his 88th birthday on April 9, Hugh Hefner wrote a letter to his younger self. It turns out the Hef we know today is all thanks to one young woman who broke his heart as a teenager. [CBS]
  • Jennifer Lawrence is so awesome at what she might sway "X-Men" producers to give her character Mystique its own spinoff film. [EW]
  • If Stephen Colbert totally rules over Jimmy Fallon at 11:30, at least Fallon could have a great backup career as a musical impressionist. His Tom Petty impersonation, with Stevie Nicks at his side, is a must-see:
  • Speaking of David Letterman, we'll miss the days he prank calls Oprah Winfrey with Lindsay Lohan:
  • Disney has released its first look at "Girl Meets World," and we're still working through our feelings about it. Thoughts?

  • So Selena Gomez hung out with Justin Bieber at a recording studio Tuesday night ... and she was suspiciously wobbly walking into the entrance. [MTV/TMZ]
  • In your afternoon edition of "Naked Celebrities in Magazines," there's Sean Penn and Robin Wright's daughter, Dylan, and Rihanna. Neither of them remembered to wear pants (or underwear) to these photo shoots. [Us Weekly/Gossip Cop]
  • As much as we heart the rest of the "Saturday Night Live" cast - Hi Kate McKinnon! - we really wouldn't be that upset if this weekend's show was just Seth Rogen getting razzed by Aidy Bryant.

  • Raise your hand if this trailer for HBO's new show, "The Leftovers," has piqued your interest (ours are raised!):
  • The only thing missing from Faith Hill's duet with Tim McGraw at the ACM awards on Sunday were T-shirts that read, "Would a couple headed for divorce do this?"
  • OK, so director Richard Donner is totally on board for a "Goonies" sequel and he wants the old cast to return ... but Corey Feldman isn't that into it. Drama! [TMZ/TMZ]
