Miley Cyrus shreds a mean guitar in her big Grammy night performance -- VIDEO

Wait, what’s that you say? Miley Cyrus didn’t even attend the Grammys, much play a song there?

In this, you are correct; though Cyrus did perform a few tunes at Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammys party, she opted not to show up for the awards ceremony itself. (Getting totally shut out of the nominations can have that effect; see also Gaga, Lady.) The Bangerz singer did, however, spend the night making music — at least in some capacity:

Guess who's reuniting with John Stamos for a Super Bowl commercial? -- VIDEO

I’ll give you a hint: Think dudes… and San Francisco… and something tailor-made for the 20-something demographic.

No, Dannon Oikos pitchman Stamos isn’t teaming up with the cast of HBO’s Looking for a new Super Bowl ad. Instead, he’s apparently joining forces with a few guys near and dear to his heart. You might just say he’d like to shoot commercials with them… forever.

Way to ruin 'Homeland' for Jennifer Lawrence, 'Access Hollywood' -- VIDEO

Today in Jerk Moves: On the SAG Awards red carpet, Jennifer Lawrence found herself being interviewed mere inches away from Damian Lewis. In response, J. Law freaked out — apparently, she’s a huge Homeland fan, although she’s only seen the show’s first two seasons. (Granted, Lawrence says she’s watched both of them twice already; she’s waiting for season 3 to be released on DVD.)

Watching a celebrity get starstruck? Charming. Watching that celebrity sort of get bullied into meeting the star who’s causing her to hyperventilate? Less charming… especially when, in the clip below, Lewis’s interviewer decides to spill a huge secret about what happens to Brody at the end of season 3. Then Lawrence’s interviewer loudly, excitedly repeats it, despite the fact that Lawrence just told her she’s only watched seasons 1 and 2.

After some gape-mouthed shock, Jennifer leapfrogs right over anger to attain a higher state of righteous rage. “I’m past mad,” she tells the spoiler with the big microphone. “It’s this weird other emotion.” Your shock is our shock, Jennifer; your pain is our pain.

Robert Downey Jr. and Sting duet on 'Driven to Tears' -- VIDEO

If you thought Robert Downey Jr.’s brown eyes and his sense of humor were the sexiest things about him, you were wrong. Because the man can sang.

Iron Man himself recently joined Sting on stage for a duet of “Driven to Tears.” The two shared a mic in front of a very happy crowd as Downey showed off his soulful, sultry, and downright shocking vocal chops. Needless to say, if I were building a band of Hollywood actors, he would officially be my lead singer. And Johnny Depp would be my guitarist. Actually, that would make for a great reality show.

Watch Downey and Sting duet below:

Peter Pan proposes to Wendy...and she says yes! -- VIDEO

It was a fairytale beginning for Sandor Sturbl and Lilly-Jane Young, who currently play Peter Pan and Wendy in Peter Pan: The Never Ending Story, an arena version of the musical currently touring in the U.K. An audience in Glasgow got a bit more than they bargained for from Peter Pan and Wendy.

“We were just about to sing our final song of the night when the music suddenly stopped,” Young told The Daily Record about the performance in Glasgow. “I thought it was a technical hitch and was starting to panic when Sandor turned to the audience and said, ‘Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is usually the moment when Peter Pan gives Wendy a kiss. Lilly-Jane is the love of my life. She’s from Glasgow and performing here means the world to her. That’s why I want to ask her to marry me.’”

Here’s hoping Captain Hook doesn’t crash the wedding. Check out the video — where the bride-to-be gets pretty emotional — below:

Childish Gambino, a.k.a. Donald Glover, premieres new short, 'Chicken and Futility' -- VIDEO

The bad news: Soon-to-be-ex Community star Donald Glover’s latest short film has 100 percent less Topanga than his previous effort.

The good news: It does, however, feature three and a half minutes of Glover wearing a supremely goofy hat as he reads a particularly dark e e  cummings piece, waxes poetic about a moth’s Sisyphean attempt to find the moon, and ponders the ethical implications of eating Chick-fil-A with his pals Steve and Swank — all while attempting, clumsily, to roll a joint.

Beyonce writes essay: Gender equality 'isn't a reality yet'

Beyoncé is a grown woman, which means she’s begun to lend her voice to important causes.

For a long time, Beyoncé’s only public cause was BEYONCE!, which consisted of dancing and singing all over the world without ever really giving opinions about non-entertainment issues. Even her involvement with the First Lady was mostly just more dancing. But as anyone who listened to last month’s Beyoncé knows, Queen Bey has clearly decided the time has come to get a few things off her chest that aren’t sparkling bustiers — which brings us to her new short essay.

The Shriver Report is a “groundbreaking investigation into the millions of women who are doing it all and barely scraping by…It combines research, analysis and ideas from the nation’s top academic institutions and think tanks, essays by leading thinkers, stories of real women struggling with our modern economy, and a comprehensive poll,” commissioned by Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress. In addition to everyday women and expected participants such as Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sheryl Sandberg, included in the 400-page report is a brief essay, “Gender Equality Is a Myth!,” by one Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

MTV's '16 and Pregnant', 'Teen Mom' helped reduce teen birth rate, says study

In 2008, 40 out of every 1,000 girls between the ages of 15 and 19 gave birth. By 2011, that number had fallen to 31 out of every 1,000. And according to a new study, the recent decline in teen births means we should all be thanking … MTV?

Wellesley economist Phillip B. Levine and University of Maryland economist Melissa S. Kearney recently conducted a study that showed how the decline in the U.S. teen birth rate accelerated between 2008 and 2011, and how shows such as MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom played a crucial role.

For those who haven’t see the shows, each episode of 16 and Pregnant follows a different teen through her pregnancy, childbirth, and first weeks of parenthood. The show’s spinoff, Teen Mom, picks up with a handful of the new mothers and continues following them through their first months, sometimes years, of parenthood.

Levine and Kearney’s study found that the two series led to a 5.7 percent reduction in teen births. Therefore, the shows can account for about one-third of the decline in teen births for the year and a half after the shows were introduced. READ FULL STORY
