:: Max George of The Wanted is dating Lindsay Lohan, and it’s so serious that George brought his parents face-to-face with Hollywood’s Tasmanian Devil to meet her. Lindsay took a break from partying in London to spend a day with the George family in Manchester, and apparently things went swimmingly. Surely the start of a long, loving relationship. [TMZ]
:: Two British men in their twenties who pleaded guilty in September to hacking Sony’s servers and downloading 8,000 files — including unreleased Michael Jackson recordings — were sentenced to 100 hours of community service.

:: A new study found that Coldplay is the safest music to listen to while driving. OK well not specifically Coldplay, but music (such as theirs) that floats in the 60-80 BPM range, which mimics the average human heart rate. Faster music could potentially ramp up your heartbeat and make you jittery and, thus, more prone to crash. [Complex]
:: Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own” received a sales boost after (a remixed version) played both times Girls creator Lena Dunham strolled up to the Golden Globes stage to receive her awards. According to the label, the song’s daily sales tripled on Sunday (January 13). [Billboard]
