Lady Gaga explores 'Venus,' and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Lady Gaga's "ARTPOP" will be unleashed in full in just a few weeks, but the Mother Monster is tiding fans over with (intriguingly disparate) tracks from the album. To follow her collaboration with R. Kelly, "Do What U Want," Gaga released a universal love song over the weekend:


  • Instead of giving "Homeland" a fourth season, Showtime should get "Sesame Street" to add to its amazing "Homelamb" parody. We're dying to know what becomes of Ca-a-a-a-rrie and B-a-a-a-rody after his big, wolf-in-sheep's-clothing reveal:


  • Kanye West isn't the only hip-hop star who knows that massive diamond ring is a birthday girl's best friend. Rapper/producer Future popped the question to singer Ciara this weekend in honor of her birthday, and presented the "Body Party" songstress with a 15-carat Avionne & Co. sparkler. [Us Weekly]
  • Ellen DeGeneres and "Ellen" writer Liz Feldman are re-teaming for a new NBC sitcom about a lesbian and her straight best male friend who have a baby together before the guy meets his wife. [New York Magazine's Vulture]
  • Netflix, meanwhile, is brainstorming ways to make sure you maintain your addiction to "House of Cards." Season three is being discussed as we type. [Deadline]
  • Charlie Hunnam could've had a little extra time to prepare for Christian Grey after all. The production start date for the "Fifty Shades" movie has been pushed back to early December. [THR]
  • When she's not dusting off her whips and chains, Britney Spears can be pretty funny. Getting into the Halloween spirit, the singer recited the intro to "Thriller" for BBC Radio 1:

    Why does she have to explore Venus. Isn't that her home planet?

    Triumph; I'm with you on that one about 50 shades. I think they're doing WAY too much hype about it and it's not going to be any good. I've read the book (mainly just to see what all the fuss was about) and there's no way they're going to be able to show ANYTHING without giving it an X rating.
    But yes peace, I would much rather watch zombies biting someone's face off as well ha. Haven't seen a good zombie movie in a while.

      I'm not so much talking about the hype over it (although that can be a bad thing as well) as I am the other issues they seem to be having in regards to it. Indecisive casting, now production dates being pushed back. Such things are usually a bad omen for films I've found. I myself haven't read the book so I'll have to take your word for it on the x rating. Yeah I'd rather watch zombies eating faces too. Give me a good horror movie any day.

      Morning! Triumph, Have you seen Conjuring or Evil Dead? Btw, I knew what ya meant about 50 Shades. As K10 said about the hype, that can be a bad thing, too. You expect something great, to be shot down by a crappy flick. I guess that's why I wait for most of them to come out "on demand".

      Hey Peace! Can't say I've seen either of them. Yeah I usually wait to see movies until they're on demand too. By then we usually know whether or not they're worth watching and not a total waste of time.

      Howdy! Conjuring had the hype, but, it was still good. ED was just plain creepy! Did ya start watching the new show Dracula on fri pm? I have it dvr'd, haven't watched it yet. Wondered if you did & what ya thought.

    Ciara's ring is quite pretty. No Triumph, I won't say never. 😉

      Morning mister! To be quite honest, I could 2 sh!ts less about that movie. Never read the book, either. Don't plan on seeing the movie. I'd rather watch zombies bite someone's face off. Lol!
