If Cher Horowitz were around today, she’d be rolling with the homies to Iggy Azalea. The Australian emcee paid tribute to 1995 cult favorite Clueless in the video for her fourth The New Classic single, “Fancy.” Charli XCX even appears as tousled-hair Tai. What’s not to love? [Refinery 29]

Chris Evans is ready to hang up his cape. After starring as Captain America in four Marvel films, the actor wants to take a break from the spotlight and transition to a behind-the-scenes role: directing. At least we have Captain America: The Winter Soldier to look forward to this spring. [Indiewire]

Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave may be slated for homevid release today, but that hasn’t stopped theaters from picking up the Best Picture. Following its Academy Award win, the film can now be seen in more than 1,000 theaters nationwide, compared to 411 from last weekend. [Variety]

Our lives haven’t quite been the same since Beyoncé dropped “Drunk In Love” last December. Thanks to this unofficial emoji video  from Vimeo user Jesse Hill, its tantalizing lyrics are giving us a new reason to. [Vimeo]

Awards season, out. Festival season, in. First up on our radar is the Tribeca Film Festival, slated for April 16-27 with “55 world premieres, 37 first-time filmmakers, and 22 female directors.” [Entertainment Weekly]

Lee Daniels’ empire state of mind is getting a little help from Timbaland. The platinum-selling mastermind has been tapped to produce songs for Fox’s Terrence Howard-led hip-hop drama Empire. [Vulture]

John Travolta may never live down the fact that he butchered Idina Menzel’s name in front of millions of Oscars viewers, but the songstress has got the last laugh. She performed the award-winning ballad on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, backed by the late night host, house band The Roots, and childhood instruments. [The Hollywood Reporter]
