We wouldn’t put anything past the producers of American Horror Story: Freak Show. That’s why this trailer, as spooky as it may be, didn’t come as a shock. What was surprising is that the viral, 20-second clip is actually fan made. Ryan Murphy may want to consider adding the mastermind behind it to his crew! [Mashable]

Germany won the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but it was Rihanna who had the best game ever. Though her absence from Instagram is still felt (come back, Riri), we have Twitpics to evidence her Brazilian antics. They include, but are not limited to: snapping a selfie with the World Cup trophy, posing with midfielder Mario Götze, and getting cozy with supermodel Adriana Lima. Bring us along next time, won’t cha?! [Billboard]

Ariana Grande’s got a three problems (see: Billboard Hot 100), but Nickelodeon ain’t one. The network canceled her show Sam & Cat after just one season. Nick originally ordered 40 episodes of the show, but it will conclude with episode 36 as its series finale next week. [The Wrap]

Calling Captain Hook! Christopher Walken will play the bad guy for NBC’s live musical broadcast of Peter Pan. The production is a followup to last year’s The Sound of Music Live! starring Carrie Underwood, and will showcase Walken as “the first tap dancing Captain Hook you’ve ever seen.” [The Hollywood Reporter]

Saul’s phone is about to be ringing off the hook. AMC announced series regulars for Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul. Joining title character Bob Odenkirk are Jonathan Banks, Michael McKeanRhea SeehornPatrick Fabian, and Michael Mando. Can we throw in Bryan Cranston, too?! [Huffington Post]

Who knew Solange had a thing for Airbnb? Photographer Charlotte Hornsby followed the Lucky girl as she recorded bits for her new album, hit SxSW, and had hung out at a chicken coop. [Vulture]
