2. Not to be outdone by Madge, MIA dropped the new video for “Bad Girls” — a remix of the track that appeared on her Vicki Leekx mixtape — this morning too. Do you prefer her in a cheerleader costume or a metallic jumpsuit? Watch it here and decide.

4. After filing the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission last month, Roseanne Barr has formally announced that she’s running for the Green Party’s presidential nomination.

5. Apparently, Chris Rock is writing a romantic comedy for Melissa McCarthy “in which he envisions the Bridesmaids breakout playing his wife as the pair indulge in some boisterous dysfunction — a ‘Jerry Springer couple,’ as Rock put it.” [via Vulture]
