If you thought Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj were done sounding the alarm, think again. The “Flawless” duo have teamed yet again, this time for Minaj’s upcoming LP, The Pinkprint. Take a listen to their new anthem, “Feeling Myself,” before it’s pulled off the web. As the title suggests, it’s #bossy. [Stereogum]

We already know that Amy Schumer can work a crowd (exhibit A: her intro speech for Tilda Swinton at the Gotham Independent Film Awards). So, it’s with plenty of stocked-up LOLs that we announce her as the “last comic standing” to host the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. April 12, 2015 couldn’t come any sooner. [Vulture]

Birdman may be closer to nabbing an Oscar than you think. After dominating the 2015 SAG Awards ballot, the dark comedy also triumphs over the Golden Globe film nominees. The Alejandro González Iñárritu “tour de force” earned seven nominations at the annual accolade, including best motion picture (musical or comedy), best actor in a motion picture (musical or comedy) and best director.[The Hollywood Reporter]

As we go into complete baby bump mode with Keira Knightley, new mommy Mila Kunis is ready to get back into the swing of things. She made her first post-baby appearance last night on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson where she dished on baby Wyatt. Can you believe she just gave birth two months ago?! We’ll have what she’s having. [ELLE]

Another week, another number one for Taylor Swift. The “Blank Space” singer’s 1989 won its fifth non-consecutive week atop the Billboard 200. This makes for a total of 29 weeks that Swift spent at number one with her entire music catalogue. [Billboard]

Speaking of the top, Jay Z protégé J. Cole is projected to have his third number one album on the Billboard 200, thanks to the release of 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The disc, which dropped without the fanfare of a single on December 9, will likely sell 297,000 (or more) in its first week. [Billboard]
