-Tragic news: Katy Perry and John Mayer broke up. Try to contain your overwhelming sadness.
–George Clooney has been linked to Amal Alamuddin, a British lawyer who specializes in international law and human rights, which means we can’t even snark on her. Hmpfh!
-Kanye West is getting a lot of grief for his Seth Meyer’s appearance last night (which I watched only because I was tuning in to see Robyn Doolittle, who did great!), but I thought he was unusually articulate and rational. At least, compared to his Kimmel appearance. I mean, he still compared himself to Michelangelo and claimed he has synesthesia, but what else is new?
-In other surprising Kanye developments, Kim Kardashian insists they’re planning a “super, super small, intimate wedding” in Paris. Whaaaa???
-No one is more thrilled about going to the Oscars than Jared Leto’s mom.
-Here’s a new vine teaser for X-Men: Days of Future Past featuring most of the cast.
–Michael Sheen and Sarah Silverman are still a thing, apparently.
–Pharrell‘s new album is currently streaming on iTunes. I’m really looking forward to seeing his hat and/or performance at Sunday’s Oscars.
-I fully agree with Lainey’s take on the pedorazzi battle. “How come I don’t know what Matt Damon’s kids look like? He lives on the same street as his best friend.” Indeed!
-Also, Kristen Bell is now rewarding publications who sign on to her pedorazzi campaign with exclusive Veronica Mars scoop which is…troublesome.
–Orlando Jones‘ new video “Thug Music Vol. 1—Play At A Maximum Volume” is pretty great.
-In other actor-turned-musician news, Idris Elba has released a mixtape. I’m not going to listen to it because my love of him seems to be dependant on my avoidance of his music, but here you go.
-Here’s a sneak peek at the new season of Orphan Black. Yay!
-Yikes. A jury has ruled that Lisa Kudrow owes her ex-manager $1.6 million.
-Good on Viola Davis. She just landed the lead in Shonda Rhimes‘ new ABC drama How To Get Away With Murder.
-Even The Muppets are getting in on the selfie craze.
-My boss constantly says “bazinga!” and it drives me crazy. Much like Jim Parsons’ SNL promos.
-The Fargo TV show, starring Martin Freeman, Kate Walsh, Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Colin Hanks, and Billy Bob Thornton, dropped its first teaser trailer. That’s not how you brush snow off a windshield, Billy Bob! Perhaps you’d know that if you didn’t hate Canada.
-Also, Key & Peele have joined the Fargo cast as a pair of FBI agents, which is both weird and awesome.
-It looks like Michelle Obama will be added to Amy Poehler’s Galentine’s Day list next year.
-Here’s video of Justin Bieber doing pushups in jail during his recent arrest.
-HBO just renewed Looking for a second season.
-This is old, but I totally missed this nipple-baring slideshow for W featuring Miranda Kerr and Miley Cyrus.
–Beyoncé stopped her show to sing Happy Birthday to a concertgoer, because she’s great.
–Jimmy Fallon‘s lip sync battle with Paul Rudd is pretty damn glorious.
