Did You Hear?

:: Katy Perry will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live‘s 36th season premiere. Amy Poehler will be the host, and we will be the audience, watching every single delicious minute of this episode. (We’re fully expecting a Russell Brand cameo, too.) [Vulture]

:: Travie McCoy stops by VH1 for a martini break with Best Week Ever’s Michelle Collins. [Best Week Ever]

:: Try as they might, here are 10 once-popular hip-hop artists who just aren’t coming back. We concur on Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Ja Rule, but we’re not so sure about Nelly (his new singles get a thumbs up from us) or D’Angelo, who’s preparing a new album with Mark Ronson.  [Smoking Section]

:: Nicki Minaj talks about her faux Twitter marriage-to-and-divorce-from Drake: “I wanted to give the blogs a bit of payback and put my own story out… I’m always single. I don’t date boys. I don’t like boys. It’s true. I don’t change. I think boys are yucky, and that’s it.” [MTV]

:: Apparently, Glee doesn’t care if you have an Oscar nomination—you need to reach Britney Spears (or at least Charice) levels of famous to get on the show. [E! Online]
