It's Monday morning! See why we're grabbing the instant coffee:

  • It's hard not to think of Zoe Kravitz as the new "it" girl, but she's appearing all over the place! "X-Men" opened this weekend with a whopping $56 million at the box office. If that weren't enough, she's speaking with ASOS magazine about growing up with famous parents and more. "All that 'it' girl s***t makes me kind of uncomfortable. I'm in a very lucky position because I've been around [fame] so long, I don't feel the need to chase it." she said. "My dad was brought up very old school, very strict... so he's wearing leather pants and a boa, but he would be like, 'Did you do your chores today?' Or... 'Yes there's a party going on with Mick Jagger and some models, but it's your bedtime.'" [The Frisky] [CNN]
    • Legendary baseball player Hank Aaron was recently given an honorary degree from Princeton. He was presented with a Doctorate of Humanity. [Eurweb]
      • Both Rihanna and 50 Cent are pitching in to find a bone marrow transplant for a baby on the Upper West Side of New York. The little girl suffers from a rare bone marrow syndrome and all three have been tested to see if she's a possible match. [Grio]
        • How manner-able are your co-workers? Diddy seems to think a few of his employees need a touch up. He's hired an etiquette coach to train his new staffers on how to properly eat at business dinners as well as how to present a business card in Japan. [Boom Box]
          • Rapper Ja Rule is gearing up for a lengthy two-year prison sentence. On the bright, side he revealed to TMZ that he's planning to receive his GED while behind bars. [TMZ]
