Jump to Comments


Monday to the left of me, Wednesday to the right and here we are stuck in the middle with Tuesday. Target explains why it won’t sell Bey’s new album, a former Superman returns to television, Justin Timberlake assists a fan in proposing to his girlfriend and, well, I don’t know how to put this but Will Ferrell’s sons don’t know that their dad is kind of a big deal. Those stories and more in today’s edition of celebrity headlines!

Here are the 6 stories you need to read this morning:

1. Beyonce’s album may be topping the charts, but it won’t be hitting the shelves at Target anytime soon. The mega retailer released a statement explaining why they won’t carry Bey’s album, which was initially released exclusively to iTunes. “At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections,” a spokesperson for the company told Billboard.

2. Justin Timberlake singer, actor, Cupid in training. During his Sunday night 20/20 Experience tour in Louisville, Kentucky, the suave “Suit & Tie” performer paused the show and asked a young couple to join him on stage. Last November a fan named Josh reached out to Timberlake’s camp asking to propose to his girlfriend Kim at the concert. As you can see from the video, Timberlake was more than happy to lend a helping hand to young love. [People]

3. Superman returns… to television? Superman Returns star Brandon Routh is set to make a guest appearance on the Will Arnett comedy The Millers. The former Chuck star will play Officer Davis, a handsome cop who is investigating a string of petty thefts in Arnett’s neighborhood. [E!]

4. To America he may be Ron Burgundy, but at home he’s just dad. Even if your father is Will Ferrell there’s still one irrefutable fact that won’t be denied: Parents are embarrassing. “I think they’ll see some things and laugh occasionally,”The Anchorman 2 star told ABC News in reference to his three songs, “But mostly they are just embarrassed by me.” [ABC News]

5. Every dog has his day. Seth MacFarlane listened to the more than 128,000 fans who signed an online petition imploring the Family Guy creator to bring back the recently deceased character of Brian the Dog on Sunday, as Brian made his triumphant return to the popular animated series. How did Family Guy explain Brian’s sudden reappearance? Watch below! {LA Times]
