2. LL Cool J is pleased with the reaction to "Accidental Racist"
It's safe to say that "Accidental Racist" — a queasily earnest collaboration between Brad Paisley and LL Cool J that actually contains the lyric "if you don't judge my gold chains, I'll forget the iron chains" — has stirred up the kind of bad press generally reserved for dictators. But despite the widespread derision, LL Cool J said on The Tonight Show that he's pleased with the reaction to the song, which he felt "did its job" by starting a dialogue about racism, Rolling Stone reports.

5. The Simpsons did a Breaking Bad parody
Over the past few years, The Simpsons has seemingly been on a quest to remind its fans that there are other, better shows currently on the air, offering animated parodies of critically acclaimed dramas like Mad Men and Game of Thrones — and according to the Daily News, AMC's Breaking Bad is now on the list. The minute-long clip depicts Marge Simpson making cupcakes with blue sprinkles to sell at a bake sale, in a none-too-subtle nod to the blue meth manufactured on Breaking Bad. Unfortunately for hardcore Breaking Bad fans, the clip features neither Bart's head being crushed by an ATM nor Flanders' throat being sliced by a box-cutter — but hey, there's always next week's episode.
