The Entertation Index: May 30
Bloom, Orlando – Director Peter Jackson announced that Bloom, who played elf Legolas in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will be joining the cast of The Hobbit—even though Legolas does not appear in that book. Because of his extreme dreaminess, Bloom will reprise every role he has ever played in all future prequels and sequels, especially if the character did not originally appear in the work. He will also star as himself in Kung Fu Panda 3-8, just because.

Gaga, Lady – After her “egg” entrance to the Grammy’s, Gaga upped the ante by zip-lining onto a smoke-filled stage for the “Good Morning America” Summer Concert Series. This left Gaga unsure if she was supposed to be performing or vacationing in Costa Rica.

Mendes, Eva – The actress told Chelsea Handler that she’s not really into marriage, saying, “We were doing it for land originally.

Moby – The electro-pop star has a problem with using the word “music” to describe the sounds created by Rihanna, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, and Black Eyed Peas: “[I]t’s hyper-produced corporate product. That isn’t really even a criticism, but I just think calling it music is a misnomer. It’s advertising for ringtones.” Moby will have a difficult time convincing people that that statement “isn’t really even a criticism.”
