• Just as he tried to pick up his movie career where he left it, Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to the publishing sideline he abandoned for politics. The L.A. Times reports that the ex-guv has signed on as the executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines. Schwarzenegger took the same gigs — which seem to mostly involve writing a few columns in exchange for a big paycheck — around the time he won the California gubernatorial election a decade ago, but was forced to step down amid conflict-of-interest concerns: The magazines rely heavily on dietary supplement ads, an industry the state was trying to regulate at the time.

• Carly Rae Jepsen has canceled a concert at the annual Boy Scouts of America Jamboree, citing the group’s ban on gay scouts and leaders. “I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level,” the singer forever linked to “Call Me Maybe” announced on Twitter Tuesday, after the gay-rights group GLAAD called for entertainers to boycott the event. The band Train, though, said it will stay on the roster for now while hoping the Scouts reconsider the policy. A Boy Scouts rep told the AP the July gathering will continue as planned in West Virginia.
