Did You Hear?

:: Justin Timberlake plays Napster creator Shawn Fanning in David Fincher’s The Social Network (aka The Facebook Movie), which means we totally have a reason to post the trailer (other than the fact that this movie looks totally awesome). Also: Disney’s Brenda Strong is in the cast! Idolator likes this. [EW Pop Watch]

:: I Write Like is a website that analyzes your writing style, and matches you up with a famous author that is reminiscent of your writing. Buzzfeed put in lyrics from the iTunes Top 10 Songs list, and as it turns out, Stephen King so totally could have written Usher’s “OMG.” [Buzzfeed]

:: The polo-wearing model on the cover of Vampire Weekend’s Contra apparently isn’t too happy she’s the face of an indie hipster band—she’s suing the band for $2 million, claiming that she never signed a release for the photograph that was taken 28 years ago. [Consequence of Sound]

:: Now you, too, can be the proud owner of a miniature Michael Jackson (in his “Bad” gear) figurine for the low, low price of $270. [Jezebel]

:: Check out La Roux’s fashion-forward frontwoman Elly Jackson as she performs “Tiger Lily” (which happens to be the band’s next single), live for MTV. [Buzzworthy]

After the jump, see who’s rocking your tube today.
