1. The NFL is doing something a bit out of character this year by asking potential performers to pay-to-play the Superbowl. According to Vulture, they've requested Rihanna, Coldplay, and Katy Perry so far, but have also asked the record labels to shell out for the privilege of headlining this huge event.

2. Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith are making a comic book movie called "Yoga Hosers." It will star both Depp's daughter, Lily Rose Depp, and Smith's daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. The movie will present the two teenage girls as antiheroes.

3. Fashion Week is getting some military help this fall. A non-profit organization known as Fatigues to Fabulous will be headlining a show aimed at helping servicewomen decide what to wear as civilians. In fact, 15 female veterans will be walking in the show and strutting their military-inspired style.

4. Oh, Pharrell and his infamous hat. PSFK reports that the rapper's hat worn at last year's Grammys will be on display at the Newsuem until October. See it while you can?

5. During Zoe Saldana's contribution to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, she announced some very big news. She's pregnant! Congrats to this "Guardians of the Galaxy" star!
