• Nirvana's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame made for an exciting show Thursday night, with four vocalists — Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, Annie Clark (a k a St. Vincent) and Lorde — filling in for the late Joan Jett. [Entertainment Weekly]

• The "Divergent" movie series is going the same route as "The Hunger Games," "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" — splitting the final book, "Allegiant," into two movies. [The Hollywood Reporter]
