      Daybreak Daily's afternoon scouring of the pop-culture pans finds a name that sounds strangely familiar, some Al Green bars, other things, and the mystery music video.

      KIMMY!: Where you been, girl?, per the Los Angeles Times, "Kim Kardashian isn't just famous for doing nothing anymore. Sony Pictures Television has announced she's joining the cast of the Lifetime series "Drop Dead Diva," now in its fourth season, for a multi-episode arc." http://lat.ms/xGZOoL

      BET IT WAS THAT SYNTHETIC STUFF:Demi Moore 911 caller said it was "similar to incense", per People, "Demi Moore was having convulsions and "burning up" at her Los Angeles home after she smoked an unknown substance, according to the 911 call tape released Friday." http://bit.ly/AvM0Ed

      MEANWHILE: Hilarious birthday party footage of Demi from 1982 during her 'General Hospital' days, per Entertainment Tonight, "(She) may be experiencing a mid-life crisis following her split with Ashton Kutcher, but at just 19 years old she was living life to the fullest. . . Watch her wild, tipsy behavior in her first-ever ET interview!" http://bit.ly/xX2IGT

      POTUS POWER: Your turn, Newt (or Mitt), per Billboard, "Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" got a sales boost last week from an unlikely source -- President Barack Obama. A video of the president singing the first line of the song at a Jan. 19 fund-raising event went viral the next day, sparking a 490% weekly sales increase for the song. It sold 16,000 downloads in the week ending Jan. 22 according to Nielsen SoundScan." http://bit.ly/x1GpGl

      OPRAH RUMOR SHOT DOWN: By her best bud, per the Huffington Post, "Gayle King denied rumors that Oprah Winfrey is the the godmother of Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy. On Friday, the CBS co-host and Winfrey's best friend said the reports were "absolutely not true." http://huff.to/Abcaos

      IDOL SLIPPING?: It's all relative, per PerezHilton, "American Idol has been beaten in the ratings by Big Bang Theory for the SECOND week in a row! Could it be that America is finally tired of watching people sing in front of three judges for a shot at fame and fortune?!" http://bit.ly/xG6Xse

      CASHING IN: See, this is what Mitt talks about, per the Wall Street Journal, "Facebook Inc. could file papers for an initial public offering as early as next week and is currently looking at a deal that would value the social network between $75 billion to $100 billion, said people familiar with the matter." http://on.wsj.com/zeGPgt

      OBIT: Per the AP, "Dick Kniss, a bassist who performed for five decades with the folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary and co-wrote the John Denver hit "Sunshine on My Shoulders," has died. He was 74." http://apne.ws/xzhEUb

      IN THE WEEDS: And now this, per Us Weekly, "The show must go on without Demi Moore in Lovelace -- and Mary Louise Parker is waiting in the wings. Amidst an emotional and medical crisis, Moore, 49, canceled plans to play feminist legend Gloria Steinem in the porn biopic earlier this week. Now, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly that Weeds actress Parker, 47, will step in for the small role." http://bit.ly/yFGnrO
