Katy Perry: My heart is happy again

As Katy Perry announces that she won't be attending the People's Choice Awards this week, the 27-year-old pop star is also thanking fans for support.

The singer tweeted on Saturday - her first post since her estranged husband Russell Brand filed for divorce in late December - that her spirits had been lifted by kind words sent to her from across the globe.

"I am so grateful for all the love and support I've had from people around the world," she wrote. "You guys have made my heart happy again."

Don Cheadle makes 'House of Lies' one to watch

Showtime has been promoting "House of Lies" for what seems like the better part of a year, so there was a lot of anticipation for Sunday night's series premiere (which – as Showtime and Starz tend to do with new series – was also available online and free to many cable subscribers).

But the show, about a team of management consultants led by Marty (Oscar-nominated actor and executive producer Don Cheadle), crammed a lot of plot into the first episode. So much so that there really wasn't any time left for two of Marty's employees, played by Ben Schwartz ("Parks and Recreation") and Josh Lawson ("The Wedding Party"), to shine.

Much of the focus was on Marty himself. It's not entirely clear from the promos, but after watching the show, Cheadle is perfectly cast as the slick Marty Kaan. (Marty also appears to be the first sitcom character since "Saved by the Bell" to have Zack Morris' "time out" power.)

Fans speculate meaning behind Beyonce name 'Blue Ivy'

From the moment she announced her pregnancy last August to the often-reported though not yet confirmed by her camp delivery on Saturday, Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby has been winning the Internet.

And on Sunday, the day following Beyonce's reported delivery of a baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter in New York, the rumored name sparked plenty of online conversation as fans tried to dissect the meaning.

(Some reports suggested that the name was "Ivy Blue," but a tweet from Beyonce's pal Gwyneth Paltrow appeared to clear up the confusion: "It's Blue Ivy Carter!" the actress wrote to a curious Twitter follower.)
