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

• Remember how much hype there was at Sundance for "Jobs," the biopic of Steve Jobs that starred Ashton Kutcher. Now the distributor has pulled the movie from its planned April 19 release — which, observers speculate, is either an act of desperation to figure out how to market the film, or a plan to open later to mount an Oscar campaign for Kutcher. (And, yes, someone used the words "Oscar" and "Ashton Kutcher" in the same sentence. Weird.) [The Huffington Post]

• Alt-folk singer Michelle Shocked reportedly shocked a San Francisco audience by going off on an anti-gay rant. [Entertainment Weekly]

• Just when you thought it was safe to read fairy-tales again, comes word that "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" will get a sequel. [Vulture]
