Did You Hear?

:: Season 11 American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez has been cast in Fox’s hit musical series Glee. No details yet on what role the 16-year-old will play or how long she’ll be on the show, but we suppose this is a decent consolation prize for the power singer after losing Idol to Phillip Phillips (we’re still not over that). [TVLine]

:: In other Fox news, Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez have officially signed on as the new co-hosts of The X Factor. Didn’t we already hear this news? Anyway, they’re expected to debut on the show next month. [TMZ]

:: Frank Ocean posted another heartfelt letter on his Tumblr, but this one is more rambling and less inspiring than his famous “coming out” post. This one finds the singer reflecting on the whirlwind of his success, and touches on everything from YOLO to the fact that dunking Oreos in almond milk just doesn’t compare to dunking them in real milk. [Oh No They Didn’t!]

:: A few days after Taylor Swift landed her Red Keds deal, Justin Bieber has gotten into the shoe biz as the spokesman for Adidas’ NEO label. To kick off the campaign, he’s holding a contest for fans to find a pair of his gold sneaks. [E!]

:: Kid Cudi is done working on “the greatest album ever made” so he probably has some free time. Thus, he has signed on to star in an indie romantic comedy. In Two Night Stand Cudi will play the boyfriend to Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr. [MTV]
