Happy Tuesday! Here’s our compendium of pop-culture news you may have missed while you were doing more important things over the long weekend.

Vanity Fair‘s February issue, which featured Justin Bieber on the cover, may be the worst-selling issue of the magazine in 12 years. [WWD]

Transformers 3 easily won the long weekend box office with $116.4M. Cars 2 came in second place with a not-even-close $32M; Bad Teacher, Larry Crowne, and Super 8 finished out the top five with $17.6M, $15.7M, and $9.5M. Popcorn! Summertime! [BOM]
