–Beyonce posed for a fun Instagram shot with her Destiny’s Child pals. Let’s see how long it takes for her publicist to demand it be taken down…
–Rihanna accompanied Chris Brown to court yesterday and blew him kisses, seemingly forgetting the reason he was in court in the first place was to deal with the ramifications of beating the crap out of her.
–Lindsay Lohan is so broke, she’s reportedly had to move back home to her mother’s house in Long Island. There’s a sitcom pitch in there somewhere…
–Diane Kruger got super excited while watching a football game in France. Joshua Jackson? Not so much.
-I liked Will Smith’s explanation about why Willow dropped out of Annie (“She looked at me and said, ‘Daddy, how about I just be 12?'”) but it seems just a little too perfect to be true, right? Or have I just become way too cynical?
–Ellie Kemper is following in BFF Mindy Kalling‘s footsteps and fronting her own show.
-Meanwhile, The Office just announced its end date: May 16. “Gee, I really hope Pam and Brian get together by then,” said no one.
–Jason Bateman just landed another gig, producing and starring in the murder-mystery comedy Game Night. (I saw his Identity Thief last night, which was as good as one can expect of a February release. I certainly liked it — and Melissa McCarthy — way more than disgusting dinosaur Rex Reed.)
-Meanwhile, Melissa is set to make her directorial debut. So there!
-Speaking of directorial debuts, Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith just landed the lead in Ryan Gosling‘s.

-Best anecdote from Tina Fey ever!
-So, this is what Lil Kim looks like now. Um, yeah.
–Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Charlize Theron have joined the Oscar telecast — not as presenters but as “special guests.” Dear gawd, please let them be participating in a Magic Mike parody!
–Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are denying rumours of a split.
-What is it about British shows that make them so much better than (most) American ones? I’m intrigued by the latest UK import Orphan Black, which debuts March 30 on Space.
–Jessica Simpson took her belly bump out in public.
–John Mayer admits to being “a jerk” to his famous exes as if this is news or something.
–Lizzy Caplan stars in a spoof of fashion/art “films” that is just so, so good — especially since it landed the week of Calvin Klein’s latest.
