MARILYN: She’s the thematic “icon” for this year’s Cannes Film Festival, which is celebrating its 65th anniversary, per Deadline Hollywood, “The event’s offical poster shows the star blowing out a birthday cake — although this image appears to be from inside a limousine rather than having to do with her famous rendition of the Happy Birthday song she sang to President John F Kennedy in 1962.” http://bit.ly/yRlT9T
RING OF FIRE: So blow out the candles, per Rolling Stone, “Tickets go on sale tomorrow for an 80th birthday celebration of the life and music of the late Johnny Cash, to be held April 20th at the Austin City Limits Live venue in Austin, Texas.” http://bit.ly/A8JLaL

SNIPING: Angelina Jolie’s leg pose at the Oscars strangely hit a nerve with Joan Rivers, per Radar, “Angelina Jolie looked like a fool the way she posed,” Rivers exclusively told RadarOnline.com. “She took herself right out of that super star category because you now realize she stands in front of a mirror to figure out [what she looks like.” http://bit.ly/AbWgWg
KARDASHIAN ALERT: In this case, it’s Kim, per People (with photo), “In a self-portrait she posted on Twitter early Tuesday, Kardashian, 31, rocks a sports bra and a pair of matching sweatpants with her red-carpet confidence (and signature curves!) on display.” http://bit.ly/zER3ze

Last season's finale, which saw sentimental favorite J.R. Martinez take home the mirror ball trophy, was the lowest-rated fall finale to date and was down significantly in the demographic of views ages 18 to 49 from the previous fall finale.” http://lat.ms/wn4E8F
