While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We've had hours to digest Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's "Control," and we're still astonished. If you've evaded listening to this, please drop what you're doing and do so now. [Fader]
  • MTV "Can't Stop" adding new acts to the MTV VMAs. Joining Katy Perry, Kanye West and Lady Gaga on the lineup for the August 25 show will be Miley Cyrus and Mr. "Blurred Lines" himself, Robin Thicke. [MTV]
  • By the way: Miley Cyrus "knows what color her skin is," in case you had any doubt. [Miley's Twitter]
  • Cory Monteith's final film, "McCanick," will carry on the actor's legacy at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it will debut on September 9. [EW]
  • Why stop at two "Thor" movies when we can have three? If you feel the same way, Natalie Portman has some titillating news: "I think they are going to make 'Thor 3,'" the actress hinted to E! News. [E!]
  • A Jo-Bro's catching a wave to "Hawaii Five-O." The CBS series has lined up Nick Jonas to play a computer hacker on the upcoming season, which will also feature Rumer Willis, Carol Burnett, Taryn Manning and Tim Daly. [Gossip Cop]

    So Mr Thicke gets ANOTHER opportunity to sing his abomination of a song. I really am losing faith in humanity after this years music releases. "Blurred Lines" is unoriginal, offensive and Mr Thicke is a desperate wannabe who pretends to be "cool". Whatevs I just wish Colbert didn't feature him because I love Colbert.

      In military parlance this is called barrage jamming – you throw so many signals of the same bandwidth out that bonafide message traffic is overwhelmed and lost. C n n needs to get a handle on this because it's driving consumers away. There's more garbage here than legitimate traffic. The barrage is achieving its intended effect.
