The Black Keys' new song, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • The Black Keys' new album, "Turn Blue," will arrive on May 13 - but you can get a taste of what's to come now with the just released single, "Fever."
  • Stacy Keibler is wasting no time building a family with new husband Jared Pobre, whom she married earlier this month. The former "DWTS" competitor (and George Clooney's ex) is expecting her first baby. [Just Jared]
  • To read the full feature on Kim and Kanye's "fashionable life" you'll still have to buy the April issue of Vogue, but you can at least see a few more photos and check out part of the story for free. [Vogue]
  • Kevin Bacon's "Sunday shoes" may be 30 years old, but they still fit just fine.
  • Our knowledge of Rihanna's TV viewing habits are now complete. Not only does she watch "Breaking Bad" - and is enough of a fan that she turned Drake onto it too - but she's also into "Teen Mom." The singer actually used a clip of one of "Teen Mom 2's" stars to promote her new tour with Eminem. [Rihanna's Instagram]
  • It would appear that Justin Bieber is our new James Dean ... according to him, at least. Except he "doesn't smoke ciggys."

Idina Menzel and John Travolta are friends now, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • John Travolta completely butchering Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars is all water under the bridge - especially since she's "only benefited from it," as she told Broadway World. (Hey, what are friends for if not to get you extra publicity?) [Broadway World]
  • With "Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss singing on for two more seasons, it looks like "Game of Thrones" is headed into a potential six season stretch at the least. [EW]
  • After his work in "Planet of the Apes" we want Andy Serkis to play all the animals, all the time. But for live action adaptation of "The Jungle Book," he's going to take the director's seat. [THR]
  • The good news: USA has renewed "White Collar." The makes-us-nervous news: it's only for six new episodes.


Have anything to do with the reason why she can't seem to quit Justin Bieber? Just curious. [People]

  • When you're Zoe Kravitz, waking up to find Ashton Kutcher making omelets in your kitchen is just another Wednesday. [Us Weekly]
  • Madonna's "revolution of love" apparently starts in her armpits. "Long hair .... Don't Care!!" she shared on Instagram, along with a photo of her hairy underarms.

What Ryan Gosling might do next, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • It's been far too long since we've seen Ryan Gosling on screen, don't you agree? That's why we're keeping our fingers crossed that he does decide to star in a biopic of famed choreographer and director Busby Berkeley, a flick Gosling's already on board to produce. [The Guardian]
  • Leave it to Justin Timberlake to make us all misty with a music video. For his new single "Not A Bad Thing," he took the spotlight off himself and put it on an actual guy who proposed to his girlfriend with the song on a train in January. Timberlake hasn't been able to find the couple, so he used Ellen DeGeneres to help him search:
  • Don't be deceived by the TV, kids. Washington D.C. isn't nearly as steamy and salacious as it is on "Scandal" and "House of Cards," so says President Obama on "Ellen." Of greater importance is the President's commitment to excellent TV, from "Homeland" to "HOC." We've got to remember to invite him to our viewing parties!  [Vanity Fair]
  • The CW's new sci-fi series "The 100" is one worth checking out. It's received strong reviews and premiered to even better ratings ... well, for the CW, anyway. The new show got more premiere viewers than any of the network's new shows this season with 2.6 million tuning in. [EW]
  • As much as we enjoy "Entourage," we can not abide by Jeremy Piven speaking ill of Benedict Cumberbatch. Thankfully, Piven was joking when he called the Brit "Sherlock" star a "Cumberb****" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday. [THR]
  • Two things: One, young Bradley Cooper is amazing. Two, we know Louis C.K. is somewhere laughing his goatee off right now.

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin head to Netflix, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • As if we're not logging enough hours on our coach glued to our screens, Netflix has just tempted us with another binge-watching opportunity. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who first stole our hearts with their combined wit in "Nine to Five," are going to star in a comedy from Howard J. Morris and "Friends" creator Marta Kaufmann called "Grace and Frankie." The "very different kind of sitcom" is about two older women whose long-held rivalry is put on the back burner after their husbands announce that they're in love with one another and plan on getting married, leaving their wives behind. The 13-episode series is set to premiere next year.
  • Meanwhile, Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are starring in a new FX comedy about the lives of an established comedian and an upstart in the creatively titled "The Comedians." [LAT]
  • One of Pamela Anderson's biggest fears about cutting her trademark long hair was how it would affect her sex life - and not in the way you'd think. "I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair," the former "Baywatch" star says, "but then I kind of got into the mode." And now we know something about Anderson that we did not know before. [Elle]
  • If you want to see Eminem and Rihanna in concert, you've only got three nights to choose from. The duo, who've paired up on "Love the Way You Lie" and their recent hit "Monster," will take the stage for "The Monster" tour in August in Los Angeles, New York and Detroit. [Eminem.com]
  • Anna Kendrick is going to host "Saturday Night Live" for the first time on April 5 (with musical guest Pharrell), and she's going to be amazing. We're calling it now. [THR]
  • In honor of hump day, here's the second half of the purported Lindsay Lohan lust list, now with more famous names. [The Blemish]
  • "Game of Thrones" season four: Let the countdown begin.

Kate Gosselin back on TLC, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Kate Gosselin has been technically done with reality TV for a few years, but in reality, she's still open to cameras chronicling her family's every move. The mom of eight has signed up for a one-hour "catch up" special that will air on her old network home, TLC, in June. [THR]
  • Keep your eyes peeled for a confirmed casting announcement for the lead role in J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII." The movie is officially launching production in May.
  • OK, fine - you got us, Ashton Kutcher. We're totally swooning over the fact that he asked Mila Kunis' dad for his blessing before he popped the question. But on the other hand, we hope his ex Demi Moore doesn't read about this: "It was important to Ashton to be respectful and traditional," a source spills. "This is the real thing for him and he wants to do it all right." [People]
  • On "Late Night with Seth Meyers" Monday, Anderson Cooper finally confirms that Meyers isn't gay:
  • Here's the Prince and Zooey Deschanel collaboration you didn't know you wanted. (Why are they performing a duet? Remember, he killed it on "New Girl" back in February.)

Britney Spears' little sister gets married, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • A different Spears has made it down the aisle. Jamie Lynn, the younger sister of pop star Britney Spears, wed fiance Jamie Watson in New Orleans a year after they announced their engagement. [NYDN]
  • We're getting nightmares already about "American Horror Story" season 4! It's going to unfold in the creepiest of all creepy places: a carnival. [CBS]
  • Angus T. Jones has absolutely zero regrets about leaving "Two and a Half Men." A student at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the 20-year-old has put his days of being a "paid hypocrite" behind and is looking forward to working on "Bible-based stories." [Deadline]
  • Oof: Rumor has it Jason Aldean is dating the woman he was caught getting "close" with at a bar in 2012 while he was still married. [GossipCop]
  • When "Family Guy" goes to Nashville, it's only natural that they run into Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.
