:: The Jonas Brothers are taking their women on tour—Kevin’s wife Danielle will be joining the boys, as will Joe’s girlfriend Demi Lovato, who coincidentally happens to be their opening act. You know what that means—all the groupies go to Nick. [PopEater]

:: Why yes, that is Pharrell wearing jean shorts at Cannes Film Festival. Pharrell, pants. Pants, Pharrell. I see you haven’t met yet. [Rap-Up]

:: WTF couple Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood will reportedly star in a movie together called Splatter Sisters, described as being “the first in a planned franchise and is a sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie circa 1989.” We’re pretty sure “first” is a relative term, since they probably won’t make a sequel to a movie no one will go see. [Just Jared]

:: Not everyone shares our enthusiasm over news that Mary J. Blige has been cast to play the iconic Nina Simone. But we still have faith in our MJB’s big-screen career! [Soul Bounce]
