Morning Links: Snooki Is Single Again, Beyoncé Hopes You’re Enjoying Her Album

● The romance has run out of Snooki’s actually very sweet sounding relationship. “I think he was just really sad about being away from her so much,” reports a friend of Snooki’s shy ex. Juiceheads, rejoice: the queen guidette is on the prowl once more. [PopEater] ● In a further effort to win the attention of America’s screen-bound youth, FOTUS Michelle Obama will appear on Nickelodeon’s iCarly. [AP] ● Spider-Man the musical is finally a “frozen” production, meaning no new changes between now and opening day. No new scripts, no new choreography, and definitely no new sets — even if it’s the Empire State Building that’s asking. [NYT/ArtsBeat]

● Beyoncé’s new album leaked a little early, and so long as you are enjoying it, she doesn’t really care. “When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat,” she wrote on Facebook. “I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new songs.” [Beyoncé/Facebook] ● The perhaps scandalizing decapitated-model/art piece from Kanye’s “Monster” video has spoken, and mostly she thinks it’s totally cool that Kanye touched her hair. To which, well, who wouldn’t? [Jezebel] ● Is he still Fat Joe if he’s not even fat? [MTO] ●This video of Moby collapsing from electric shock during a performance in an Amsterdam gallery (“This isn’t a joke, by the way,” someone assures, as onlookers reach for their iPhones) is, at the least, disconcerting.
