Item #2: That didn’t last long! Jennifer Lawrence reportedly has dumped Coldplay’s Chris Martin, only a couple of months after she started dating Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband.

Item #3: More news about Neil Patrick Harris. The recently-named Oscar host will also be hosting a new project for NBC: An American re-do of the popular British variety show, “Saturday Night Takeaway.” Of course, the NBC show will likely not air on Saturday nights — and it’s slated to get a new name.

Item #4: Pitbull and filmmaking mogul Harvey Weinstein’s names rarely are in the same sentence, but the Hollywood bigshot will be overseeing two new reality shows starring Pitbull.

The other will be called “The REAL Change Project,” with Pitbull teaming up with the likes of Michelle Obama, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Kobe Bryant — to talk about obstacles they overcame in their youth — and the mentors who helped them on their path to success.
