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

• Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their new baby North. As in North West. Yes, really. If she lives up to her name, she'll become a lumberjack or a barista. [Entertainment Weekly]

• Helena Bonham Carter will play the fairy godmother in Disney's upcoming live-action “Cinderella,” which already cast Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmom. It's being directed by Kenneth Branagh, who castr Bonham Carter in “Mary Shelley's Frankenstein” back in 1994. [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Yes, the Miami Heat are your 2013 NBA champions. If you summoned the ghost of Dr. James Naismith, the creator of basketball, he surely would be thrilled – though probably perplexed that a game designed to keep people active indoors in winter was still being played on the last day of spring.
