News of the Day:
+ Hold the phone: Lindsay Lohan may have just confirmed that after eight years, she may be recording a third album. In a recent video interview, Lohan claimed to have plans to record for Universal Motown. The last time she released any music was back in 2008 with her hit single "Bossy."
+ Rumors are circulating about a possible Michelle Obama cameo on the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival. Earlier this week, FLOTUS joined Snapchat (you can add her at @michelleobama), and the show's star Alexis Bledel was spotted on her story. We know that the actresses' character, Rory, worked on the Obama campaign, so could Mrs. Obama's snap be a sneak peek at an upcoming episode? In other FLOTUS news, you can now download a 22-second ringtone clip of Michelle Obama telling men to "be better," thanks to New York-based filmmaker Zak Griffler.
