-Jessica Simpson wants you all to know that her fiance Eric Johnson “looks amazing naked!” Feel free to write it on a sticky note to help you remember.

-Uh-oh. Lindsay Lohan is seeking a laptop that contains nude pictures of herself.  (Someone needs to break it to her that there are probably many, many laptops that fit that description.)

-Elle is being criticized for close-cropping Mindy Kaling’s cover instead of showing a full body shot.  Kaling is keeping a sense of humour about the controversy, tweeting, “If anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me.”

-Meanwhile, last night’s episode of The Mindy Project was pretty damn perfect.

-Anna Kendrick and Joss Whedon shared an adorable Twitter exchange.

-Happy dance! Kathryn Hahn will be back on Parks and Recreation this week.

-SNL continues to inch towards relevancy by hiring two African-American female writers.

-I don’t see the need for NBC’s remake of Rosemary’s Baby, but I don’t hate the casting of Zoe Saldana as the lead.

-Has Lena Dunham landed the cover of next month’s Vogue?
