Did You Hear?

:: Beyonce plans to celebrate World Humanitarian Day with the gift of song — her own song, of course. She performed 4 track “I Was Here” for the United Nations on Friday, to be released on the commemorative holiday itself, August 19. And don’t we all feel a little more compassionate toward our fellow man after hearing a Bey tune? [Rap-Up]

:: Apparently, one man isn’t enough for Miley Cyrus. The former tween TV star will guest on Two And A Half Men, playing love interest to teen character Jake as well as a lust object for Ashton Kutcher. So one guy gets Miley, one gets her country superstar alter ego… but wait! That still leaves half a man with zilch. [Huffington Post]

:: Which musician scrawled an expletive over their face to thwart the paparazzi? No, it wasn’t Carly Rae Jepsen, but rather Marilyn Manson, whose unconventional efforts to avoid attracting photographic attention have clearly not paid off. [ONTD]

:: We know you’re probably tired of various “Call Me Maybe” mashups and whatnot, but is that still true when it’s Khia‘s filthy “My Neck, My Back” over the sugar-sweet “Call Me Maybe” instrumentals in a version we like to call “Lick Me Maybe”? Didn’t think so. [Popdust]

:: Spotted: Gossip Girl star Penn Badgely, covering “Lilac Wine” in anticipation of his role starring as Jeff Buckley in the movie Greetings From Tim Buckley. We knew Leighton Meester could sing, but who knew Lonely Boy had such a set of pipes? xoxo, Idolator. [JustJared]
