Did You Hear?

:: Jessica Simpson will play herself on an upcoming episode of Entourage. If Newlyweds is any indication, we know Jessica can at least play herself fairly well. [Just Jared]

:: Personal videos of Michael Jackson’s kids playing around with their webcam have found their way to YouTube. We dread the inevitable remix videos yet to come. [PopEater]

:: Jenny Lewis will appear on Brandon Flowers’ album Flamingo on a track called “Hard Enough.” We’re not sure which solo effort we’re eagerly awaiting more, Flowers’ or Patrick Stump’s—it’s a rock-band-frontman-debut-solo-album off! [Spin]

:: We’re still giggling/slightly turned on from Kurt and Brittany’s oddball make-out sesh on Glee last Tuesday night, and MTV must have makin’ out on the brain, too—check out this list of the best music videos featuring smooching. [MTV Buzzworthy]

:: Katy Perry reveals that the name of her new single “California Gurls” is indeed a reference to the Big Star song “September Gurls,” and tweaked the spelling as a nod to the late Alex Chilton. (Truth be told, though, she’s not actually a Big Star fan, and just did it because her manager asked her to.) [EW Music Mix]
