La la means I love you we’re singing the Mondaze away with a little help from Lana Del Rey. After gracing the stage at Coachella this weekend, she gave fans a new single from her forthcoming album Ultraviolence, which aptly pays tribute to the “West Coast.” [Huffington Post]

To know me is to know the aforementioned brief, as lovely as it is, pales in comparison to this Coachella news. No, I’m not talking the Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration, despite its level on the major moment(!) scale. I’m talking Beyoncé crashing Solange’s set and joining in on a 1-2 step from the latter’s “Losing You.” Queen Bey and her surprises! [Mashable]

Seth Meyers is draping 30 Rock with Don Draper digs. After settling into his new role as Jimmy Fallon’s successor on Late Night, the SNL alum has made the show’s dressing and green rooms his own, complete with retro fixtures, vintage finds, and the snazziest walls we’ve come across in a while. [Architectural Digest]

James Cameron is readying to open up Pandora’s box once more. During a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat, the director revealed that all three Avatar sequels are in pre-production, simultaneously, with “creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films.” His one setback? Time. “The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable,” he said, adding “there hasn’t been a problem finding new and wonderful things to include in the movie.” [Vulture]

Ding, dong, the evil King Joffrey is dead! Game of Thrones fans rejoiced last night when the Purple Wedding’s festivities came to a screeching halt with the murder (via poison) of one of the series’ most-hated characters. The departure may seem too lofty, too early in the season’s start, but the episode’s director Alex Graves says “Joffrey’s death is a beginning… [that] affects the show through to the climax.” [Hollywood Reporter]

All we really remember from last night’s MTV Movie Awards was Zac Efron’s shirtless cameo (well, hello there!), but there were plenty of awards handed out, too. Channing Tatum was lauded as a trailblazer and Mark Wahlberg received the Generation Award for his storied career, while fan favorites like Jared Leto and Rihanna munched on golden popcorn. But back to Efron sans shirt. Heeey! [USA Today]
