A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
Beyoncé and Jay-Z will not be able to trademark the name Blue Ivy . The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled against the couple’s petition to trademark the moniker of their daughter, so they can potentially have the exclusive capacity to slap her name on baby products like diaper bags and cosmetics. A Boston wedding planning business with the name Blue Ivy also attempted to trademark the name and failed. The Patent Office ruling allows wedding planner Blue Ivy to continue using the name for that sort of business and Beyoncé and Jay-Z to use it for other, unrelated endeavors. So buck up: a tube of baby lipstick with the name Blue Ivy on it — and endorsed by Blue Ivy’s parents — could still be coming to a store near you. (Rolling Stone)
The first trailer for “Iron Man 3” has debuted online, and it features explosions, Robert Downey Jr. and much Tony Stark angst.
Finally, we have some details on the Jessica Biel/Justin Timberlake wedding , courtesy of Us Weekly. Detail one: Biel reportedly wore a pink and white gown. Detail two: Timberlake actually did sing to his bride during the reception, but not “Sexy Back”; instead he did a previously unreleased track, because where better to drop your upcoming single than at your own wedding? Also, detail three: Questlove did DJ the wedding, but presumably per the non-disclosure agreement, he didn’t tweet photos like he did after the David Cross and Amber Tamblyn wedding . Bum-mer.

The Los Angeles County coroner released autopsy results Monday for Tony Scott , the filmmaker who leaped to his death from an L.A. bridge in August. The autopsy found that he had “therapeutic levels” of an anti-depressant and the sleep aid Lunesta in his system, but no other drugs. As The Guardian notes, there was also no evidence that Scott had cancer, as some media outlets reported shortly after his death. (Associated Press; Guardian)
