1. Here’s a sobering thought for your Wednesday: 4-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is probably earning more than you.
The youngest daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt earned $3000 US a week for her role in upcoming film Maleficent, according to a court filing of her contract. Did we mention she’s four years old?
Vivienne also received a per diem of $60 each day, which raises the question: How would the average 4-year-old spend an allowance of this size? An endless supply of Starbucks hot chocolates? A new Barbie delivered to her trailer every morning?
Vivienne appears in the live-action fairytale, set for release in March 2014, as the younger version of Aurora i.e. Sleeping Beauty. Her mum Angelina stars as the the evil sorceress.

3. May we introduce you to musician Buffalo Tales. You won’t recognise his name but his face might be familiar.
That’s because Buffalo Tales is actually Wes Carr, 30, the Australian Idol winner from five years ago.
No, Wes isn’t in witness protection – he changed his name because he believes the reality talent show “tainted” his true identity.
“People have a perception of Wes Carr. That’s not me. Ironically, I had to change my own name to release my own music,” he says.
Wes’ reincarnation as independent singer-songwriter Buffalo Tales is his attempt to shake off the “stupid, trivial and bull—-” Australian Idol shackles. “I was the puppet on the string, then all of a sudden, they cut the strings when the next puppet comes along,” he says, with not a trace of bitterness.
