The Morning’s Top 5 Pop Culture Stories


1. Not only is “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)” the first new song we’ve heard from Flight of the Conchords in years, it was written in collaboration with a bunch of schoolkids from Auckland to help raise money for medical research into life-threatening childhood diseases. So, exciting and adorable! (Note, if you’re pressed for time, the track begins at the 10:30 mark.) [via Gawker]

2. Even though you know how we feel about the Star Wars prequels, it’s probably worth mentioning that the 3-D versions of both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith will be hitting theaters next fall. [via Vulture]

3. Now that Ben Affleck has turned down the gig, there’s a rumor floating around that Warner Brothers is eying Lana and Andy Wachowski to helm its Justice League movie. Makes a little more sense, right? [via Huffington Post]

4. According to a tweet from Timbaland, Missy Elliott plans to release two new songs — “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat” — this week. While it’s not the album that we’ve been anxiously awaiting forever, we suppose for now it will have to do.

5. Speaking of new albums, Lady Gaga is reportedly recording hers in the nude because it makes her voice sound better. [via NME]
