Here’s what’s happening today in pop culture:

• Rihanna’s “We Found Love” was named Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards — but it was pre-fab British boy band One Direction that wowed, with three awards and a performance that made all the girls scream. [E! Online]

• Next week, USA Today will be launching its first major redesign in 30 years — including a new version of the national newspaper’s famous logo. [Politico]

• Movie producer Jake Eberts — whose credits include the Best Picture Oscar winners “Chariots of Fire,” “Gandhi,” “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Dances with Wolves,” along with such classics as “The Killing Fields,” “Local Hero,” “A River Runs Through It” and “Chicken Run” — has died at the age of 71.
