(Newser) – Men are already sick of Megan Fox, with a dozen male-focused websites calling for a media blackout of the Transformers star Aug. 4, the New York Daily News reports. “You can have too much of a good thing,” says the editor of Elsewhere:

  • Madonna’s newest gig: foreign correspondent for Israel’s biggest daily newspaper. Her upcoming article describing her religious awakening is previewed in today’s Yediot Ahronot and will be published in full Friday, the AP reports.

  • Jay-Z once shelved plans for an autobiography, saying he wasn’t ready to get that personal—but he’s finally signed a book deal and is planning to “cover everything from his days on the streets as a drug dealer to his fairytale wedding,” a source tells the Mirror.
  • Jack Nicholson made a splash—a big one—during his vacation in the south of France, and pictures of his sizable frame made it into the Mail. “It is obvious he still likes the party lifestyle and it certainly showed when he was pulling himself out of the water,” says a source.
