While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Barbra Streisand will sing at the Oscars for the first time since 1977. Back then, she took the stage with a rendition of "Evergreen" from "A Star Is Born," but we're still waiting to hear what she'll perform at this year's Academy Awards.
  • Speaking of grand returns, Barry Manilow has made his on Broadway. [NYT]
  • We're eager to hear what comes out of this partnership: Jay-Z's brought Timbaland into the Roc Nation family. [Life+Times]
  • Also, you've been paying attention to the Super Bowl practice picture-palooza that's been happening on Beyonce's Tumblr, right? OK, good. [Beyonce's Tumblr]
  • For reasons not entirely clear, MTV is going to follow Ke$ha around in a new docu-series called "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life." It'll start in April. [MTV]
  • ABC, the same network still trying to make celebrity diving shows happen, has turned its attention to America's children. Specifically, babies. Actually, more specifically, toddlers between the ages of 2 and 3 1/2. The reality series premise for "Bet On Your Babies" will see parents compete against themselves, rather than other families and their babies, in challenges that require them to figure out their kid's next move. [Deadline]
  • Russell Brand's FX show "Brand X" is apparently doing well for itself, as the network has expanded the program to a full hour and turned it into a live show format. [THR]
  • Here's what happens when Bon Qui Qui is unearthed, and found working at Alexander Wang:

  4. Info

    Lots on TMZ about LiLo and DiHo. They had to try three different hotels in LA yesterday before anyone would even rent them a room. Seems they've ran up too many tabs without paying. They are in town for LiLo's court hearing.

    Maybe it's just me but I like giraffes. And monkeys too. They help spread kindness and happiness. Yep. They are genuine friendly friends : )

    It's already night time again ! I'm gonna stay inside. You can never tell what's outside when it's dark. Could be a giraffe lurking around the house. Giraffes are mostly friendly but ya' never can tell. We pray you have a happy evening full of fun and cheerfulness. 🙂 🙂

      Hey Dave, If you're afraid of giraffs, never, never go to the Binder Park Zoo! They have a platform you can go on top of & feed them. Their tongues are pretty frightening! Lol!

    Babs and Barry making comebacks..somewhere a conch shell is being blown and a horrible creature is rising from the depths of a thosand year slumber. Hopefully we can hear the results of a jay z backed timbaland track before it decimates us..but i doubt it. As for Ke$ha: i dont like reality shows but i have a strange liking for this girl. Shes cute, refreshingly honest in interviews ive seen and seems fun to hang around.

      Whatever floats your boat. I remembered the Mad Rap3r liking one of the ladies from the Mob Wives. Lol. At least I think he did and he was serious.

      I'm doing well. Yeah, I forgot all about The Following. Sadie said that it will be on on Friday, so I will have to dvr it myself.

      Oh, I don't know where Mad is. He's probably trolling me. Lol. Paying me back no doubt. .lol. Good night.

      Hi BV! Ya know what they say about payback being...lol! Awww, Mad wouldn't troll you. He was 1 of the good guys. He was completely misunderstood about the seed planting thing. I knew what he meant. I wish he'd come back. 🙁 Got your dvr set up? I'm getting ready to watch it now. Have good eve!

      Yea...I know. A b¡tch..lol. I'm thinking maybe that's him up there in blue. The person knows the Mob Wife that he likes. Maybe he gave up trolling and became a farmer. Lmao..get it? Planting seeds...lol. Okay, I'm off this thing. Good night.

      Hey BV! I watched the 2nd epi last pm, make sure you set your dvr for the series...it's gonna be good! Farmer Mad? I wonder what he's growing? Well for his sake, I hope we don't have a dry summer, again. 😉

      Hey! Good morning! That's good to hear about The Following. Anyone saw The Americans (I think that's the name)? I think it's on FX. Just wondering how that was.

      Good morning BV! I recorded the Americans last night. I probably won't get around to watching it until this weekend, though. I'll let you know when I watch it. Have a good day!
