1. Jonah Hill doesn't want you to ask him about farting
Attention, entertainment journalists: Jonah Hill is a really serious actor now, with an Oscar nomination and everything, so he would really prefer that you refrain from asking him about his farting habits. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the actor balked at a question about what kind of farter he is. "I'm not answering that dumb question! I'm not that kind of person!" said Hill. "Being in a funny movie doesn't make me have to answer dumb questions." Sounds like he's become a real gasbag to us. [E! Online]

2. Taylor Swift says she's ready to start writing her next album
It's been less than a year since the release of her smash hit Red, but Taylor Swift is ready to start writing music again. "It's starting," said Swift, ominously, in an interview at the CMS Music Festival on Thursday. "All the anxiety is starting. When the anxiety starts, the writing happens right after, usually." Swift added that her records usually take about two years to write, but anyone who would like a preview of the album should keep track of her breakups over the next two years. [USA Today]

4. Sarah Jessica Parker is launching a shoe line
Today, in life imitating art: Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker is teaming up with Manolo Blahnik to release a new shoe line. "Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes, and by default I learned an enormous amount," said Parker at Vogue, accurately summing up at least 40 percent of the HBO series. "In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw." Let's just hope Dexter star Michael C. Hall doesn't follow her example. [Star Magazine]

5. The Walking Dead's next season will be its "best season yet," says executive producer
The Walking Dead's first three seasons have been a master class in squandered potential. But never fear, fans: According to a person whose life and career is inextricably tied to the show's continued success, The Walking Dead's fourth season will be the best ever! "I think season four is going to be the best season yet," said executive producer Greg Nicotero in a new video promoting the series — which might actually be true, if the premiere opens with half the show's characters getting eaten by zombies.
