Lady Gaga's 'Alejandro,' Eminem And Paramore: This Week's Deep Cuts

With the World Cup underway, the weather behaving and both "The A-Team" and "The Karate Kid" waiting for us at the cinemas, it's going to be a delightfully laid back weekend. That's good, because we're still recovering from the awesomeness that was Sunday night's (June 16) 2010 MTV Movie Awards. (If you happened to miss any of Sunday's headline-grabbing, eye-popping, eyebrow-raising show, you can watch the whole thing on demand at your leisure.) But before you commit yourself to any of that, be sure to check out anything you might have missed this week on the MTV Newsroom Blog, including headlines about Lady Gaga, Green Day and Paramore.
