Published July 16, 2012

WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE IS THAT CHARLIE IS TWEETING UNDER THE TABLE.

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

Charlie Sheen’s ex, porn star Bree Olson, claims that he used to tweet while having sex with her. It’s a lyric in a new song Olson wrote, “Hollywood Douchebag,” that otherwise none of us would have to know exists. She confirmed to Page Six that the lyric is based in truth. And now you have to take another shower! [P6/NYP]

• Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams are working on her next album together! We’re not sure why, but we really hope they do a cover of Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn’s “Clean.” [CBS]

• Daffy’s is dunzo: the discount store will close all 19 of its locations—eight of which are in Manhattan—in the fall, possibly as early as September. That means sales; and while we can’t vouch for its clothing offerings, we will say we once bought an emergency umbrella there and held onto it for years. [Racked]

• Apparently there is a new Ice Age movie! It won the weekend box office, with $46M, followed by The Amazing Spider-Man at $35M. Ted, Brave, and Magic Mike finished out the top five with $22.1M, $10.7M, and $9M, respectively. [BOM]

• The Museum of Modern Art has listed a record number of visitors for the fiscal year ending June 30—6.3 million, or 600,000 more than the year before. [ArtsBeat/NYT]

How I Met Your Mother still gets good ratings, so CBS and 20th Century Fox are in “preliminary talks” to extend it to nine seasons. There can’t be any way Jason Segel will stay on, right? He’s an actual star now. [Variety]

• Oscar-winning, Broadway-starring actress Celeste Holm died on Sunday at age 95. [LAT]
