Did You Hear?

:: Will Smith is apparently tired of being the world’s biggest movie star (or he’s just jealous of his daughter Willow), and wants to release another rap album. He’s reportedly “working” (however vague that means) with producer La Mars “Mars” Edwads, who’s collaborated with Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa.  [PopCrush]

:: The Justin Bieber Way street sign in Texas was stolen two days after it was erected. Was it a Belieber, or a Bieber hater? Either way, a new sign is being put up, so everyone wins. Especially the town’s 11-year-old mayor. [Ocean Up]

:: It’s been way too long since we’ve had some new Garbage tunes, so check out an extremely brief preview of the band’s new song. [Pink Is The New Blog]

:: 50 Cent and Lil Kim heat it up Down Under with the very first live performance of their 2003 song “Magic Stick”. [Music & Lyrics]

:: Josh Groban has signed on to play the brother of Andy Bernard (portrayed by Ed Helms) on The Office. We can’t wait for the inevitable a cappella duet these two do on the show. [Huffington Post]
