Rihanna Says Beyonce And Jay-Z's Daughter Blue Ivy Is "Beautiful" And "Perfect"

Rihanna has revealed she recently had the chance to meet Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby daughter Blue Ivy and has described the new arrival as "perfect".

The 'We Found Love' singer also says the near three month-old child is already starting to resemble her '99 Problems' rapper father, and says she is "beautiful".

"Yes I have!" Rihanna told Capital FM's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes about meeting the new arrival. "She's, it's unreal. It's unreal!

"You couldn't get more perfect than that child, she's beautiful,"
the 'You Da One' star revealed. "And she really is Jay-Z's twin. It's hilarious. She's beautiful!"

Drake and Rihanna are expected to premiere the music video for their collaborative single 'Take Care' in the next few days.

Rihanna confirmed earlier today (30th March) that she is already starting to begin work on her seventh studio album , and has a "rough sound" for the record in mind.

Tim Tebow is 'Not Sure' when he will start as QB next, deflects all controversy

Tim Tebow had his inaugural press conference at Florham Park, NJ last week and officially became a member of the New York Jets. The minute the trade was announced that Tebow would be going to the Jets, it was already a foregone conclusion that there would be a quarterback controversy between him and Mark Sanchez. How would this move help the Jets, a team that has several holes to fill on the defensive and offensive lines, as well as with the receiving corps.

'Dumb And Dumber 2' confirmed

Dumb And Dumber 2 has been confirmed to shoot in September.

Co-director Peter Farrelly has revealed plans for a follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy about the cross-country adventures of two intellectually-challenged friends. But he insisted that the new film will be the first true sequel.

He told ComingSoon.net: "We're getting set to shoot Dumb And Dumber 2 in September. It's the first sequel we’ve ever done and we've got Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back."

2003 saw the release of prequel Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, but it did not feature the original stars. Farrelly emphasised: "We did not do Dumb And Dumberer. That was a studio thing.

"So we've always wanted to do a sequel and Jim called up. Jeff always wanted to do it. We always wanted to do it. Jim was busy, but he called and said, 'We've got to do this thing again'. He had just watched Dumb And Dumber and he said, 'This is the perfect sequel. Let's do it."

Farrelly will once again direct with his brother Bob, and Sean Anders and John Morris will write the screenplay.

kris humphries is taking a 16 year old cancer patient/fan on a date

Being with Kris Humprhies may not be Kim Kardashian's wish anymore, but it is for a 16-year-old cancer patient in upstate NY ... and the NBA star is making it come true, TMZ has learned.

Friends of Kaely Kwitek started a Twitter account called @Kris4Kaely in an effort to get the attention of Kaely's favorite basketball player. Kwitek has stage 4 anaplastic large-cell lymphoma and her friends were hoping to wrangle Kris for a benefit for Kaely in May.

Their persistence paid off and Kris noticed. After trading a few emails, Kris and Kaely decided on April 23 for her to come down and catch a Nets game as Kris' guest. He'll handle all expenses for Kaely and her family and even meet up with her after the game.

Kris tells TMZ, "I'm truly honored that someone with much larger things on their plate feels that my involvement in their cause is important. Not many of us can be as strong as she has been. I hope that many more will join me and support Team Kaely."

Ashley Greene: I’ve Never Considered Myself a Fashion Icon

These days, Ashley Greene isn’t just a role model to her fans; she’s a source of style inspiration, too.

“It’s certainly something that I’ve read and people have voiced that they do consider me one of their fashion icons, and it’s really flattering and I’m really thankful for it,” she told PEOPLE Thursday before a meet-and-greet at Macy’s Herald Square. “But it’s always interesting to me — growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I never considered myself a fashion icon at all, or anything even close.”

But now, Greene — the face of DKNY and DKNY Jeans — has many a stylish eye looking her way thanks to the premieres and parties she attends. “It’s really fun for me to be able to be exposed to the red carpet and the dresses and the clothing, and working with Donna [Karan], because it’s broadened my horizons,” she said. “And now other people are responding to the things I’m wearing, so it’s fun for me, too.”

Greene, who said she grew up in flip-flops and cut-off shorts — “All the things you probably would not consider that fashionable here,” she joked — really got into style on the set of her first Twilight film. “All of a sudden there were carpets and events and press tours,” she recalled, “and I got to work with people on set about creating [character Alice Cullen's] look, so that sparked my interested and it spiraled from there. I fell in love with it.”

The actress said her favorite Donna Karan fashion moment so far was the 2011 Met Ball; she wore a custom blush gown by the designer. “It was a fairytale moment,” she shared.

But seeing her billboard in Times Square was a very close second. “They tell you about it, but then you actually see it and your jaw kind of drops,” she said, laughing. “I was like, ‘Wow, I’m humungous.’”

In fact, the experience was so big that Greene’s parents came to New York to see the image for themselves. “I had my family come out for Christmas, and that’s the first thing my mom wanted to do was see the billboard,” Greene recalled. “She landed and was like, ‘OK, let’s go look!’ It was a really huge moment.” Literally!

What’s Got Anna Faris Glowing?

When Anna Faris moved from Seattle to Los Angeles, she turned into a bit of a sun worshiper.

“I felt really, really pale,” she recalls to PEOPLE. “I became addicted to the sun. And I would tan all the time, go to booths.”

When a makeup artist told the actress she had sun damage, “it scared me,” she says. “So I stopped doing all of that.” And she started getting vigilant about using an SPF.

Now, Faris is speaking up about suncare as the face of Jergens’ ‘Places You’ll Glow’ campaign, promoting the brand’s newest moisturizer with SPF and helping to raise money for the Skin Cancer Foundation. “People can go to jergens.com and see my whole ‘glow story’ — what I do during the day and how I use this product,” Faris explains. And for every user who uploads a ‘glow story’ of their own, Jergens will donate $2 to the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Faris — who’s had three grandparents conquer skin cancer, the most common form of cancer — is more than happy to help. “It’s a fun way to support a great cause,” she says.

The Dictator star first heard about Jergens’ latest product, Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20, through actress pal Ari Graynor. “I’d tried using self-tanners but they didn’t work — I never exfoliated,” she explains. “This is foolproof because I don’t have to exfoliate, and after the shower I can put this on and it’s three products in one — my moisturizer, my ‘glow enhancer’ and my SPF.”

And Faris definitely needs all three — if for no other reason than to look good when out in L.A. “I have a little Mini Cooper convertible,” she says, laughing, “and I like to keep the top down.”

Tell us: Do you wear SPF every day?

Nicki Minaj's new album is a "disaster" and "mediocre" say critics

Despite setting an official release date for Tuesday, April 3, Nicki Minaj's new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded leaked last Wednesday, and the reviews for Minaj's sophomore effort have been less-than-stellar.

Slant magazine only gave the album one-and-a-half stars, acknowledging that although it starts off strong with, "hard, confrontational rap songs," the remaining 53 minutes of Roman Reloaded "are a disaster."

"Tacked on to this mediocre rap album is a ghastly and desperate bid for a hit single that sees Minaj and producer RedOne snatching items from a veritable sale rack of tired Top 40 tricks and tossing them hastily over the most basic synth and drum-machine presets," wrote Matthew Cole.

The concept for the album focuses on the return of Roman Zolanski, one of Minaj's many alter egos that was first featured on her 2010 debut album, Pink Friday. However, some media outlets, like The Koalition and Billboard magazine, thought that Minaj spent too much time on the album trying to sound like other artists instead of creating a definitive sound for herself.

“Now that she has sold well over 2 million albums and 5 million singles, Nicki pretty much has a free pass to do whatever she likes, but as Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded proves; creative freedom isn’t always a good thing," wrote Carl Daniel of The Koalition. "‘Starships’ is for Katy Perry fans, ‘Pound the Alarm’ is for the Taio Cruz crowd, ‘Whip It’ will appeal to those who still think Pitbull is cool and ‘Marilyn Monroe’ is a typical Rihanna ballad with Nicki Minaj starring as Rihanna."

Billboard added, "Minaj spends more time exploring her musical identity on Roman Reloaded than she does perfecting one, which makes the album sound bloated and rushed."

Most critics agreed that Minaj split the album into two distinct sounds -- one that honors her roots as a rapper and the other that showcases her newfound pop status. Lifestyle blog Yin & Yang can only hope that her third album will be more cohesive.

“Trying to please both sets of fans was a clear goal for this album, and while I do feel that she has crafted material that will achieve this, she has yet to master a way in which it’s not so obvious," wrote DJB. "Hopefully album 3 will be full of songs that both sets of fans will like rather than designating half an album to each.” source

Paul Feig and King Firth in early talks for 'Untouchable'

TWC is producing the English-language remake of French hit

"Bridesmaids" helmer Paul Feig is in early negotiations to write and direct, and Colin Firth is in early talks to star in "Untouchable," the Weinstein Co.'s English-language remake of Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache's French box office hit "The Intouchables," which TWC brings to U.S. theaters on May 25.
While there's no script yet, Feig has an offer to tackle the potential awards contender, while Firth has met on the project and is circling the coveted lead role.

Based on a true story, the dramedy follows a wealthy aristocrat who suffers a tragic accident that leaves him a quadriplegic. He goes through several caretakers before bonding with a young, troubled caregiver, and the seemingly mismatched duo end up learning a lot from each other.

Alec Baldwin's getting married, y'all

Alec Baldwin, Hilaria Thomas engaged: ‘30 Rock’ star proposes to yoga instructor in Long Island 

Alec Baldwin treated himself to an early birthday present over the weekend: an engagement his 28-year-old girlfriend Hilaria Thomas.

The “30 Rock” star, who turns 54 on Tuesday, popped the question during a trip to the East End of Long Island, a source tells the Daily News.

“Alex proposed to Hilaria this weekend & we’re all excited 4 the newly engaged couple,” his rep, Matthew Hiltzik, confirmed on Twitter. “AB’s birthday’s tom’w. Great way 2 celebrate!”

The couple, who made their relationship public last September, is not shy when it comes to professing their love for one another. When he’s not criticizing politicians or berating Starbucks baristas, the actor often exchanges saccharine tweets with Thomas – all in front of his over 800,000 followers.

Thomas, born in Mallorca, Spain, is a yoga instructor and co-owner of New York’s Yoga Vida yoga studio. She met Baldwin in early 2011 while dining with friends at Pure Food and Wine, and the two have been hot and heavy ever since.

Baldwin acknowledged the seriousness of their relationship during an interview with the Daily Beast last fall.

“All of a sudden I found myself where I was available to have something more real in my life. And now I’m going to move in with her. It’s the most serious thing, I guess, I’ve had in a long, long time,” said Baldwin, who sold his Upper West Side apartment in August to move downtown to SoHo with Thomas.

The couple has yet to set a date or place for their nuptials.

This will be the first marriage for Thomas and the second for Baldwin, whose nine-year marriage with actress Kim Basinger ended in a bitter divorce in 2002.

Britney Spears fan dies after being beaten and burned for being gay.

Daniel Zamudio, a big Britney fan, was beaten for an hour, burned with cigarettes, and had Nazi symbols carved into his body at a park in Santiago, Chile because he was gay and died from those injuries early last week.

Chilean President Sebastian Pinera addressed the incident this week.

“We want to reiterate today that we have made a commitment. We are not going to tolerate any kind of discrimination against Chilean citizens based on their socioeconomic status, their religion or sexual orientation,” he said.

After Zamudio died, authorities raised the charges against Raul Lopez Fuentes, 25, Patricio Ahumada Garay, 25, Alejandro Angulo Tapia, 26, and Fabian Mora Mora, 19, to aggravated murder.

cannes lineup leaked?

The internet is abuzz with an alleged leak from the Cannes Film Festival that saw a list of 24 films apparently making up its official 2012 competition listed on the official Cannes site and then quickly removed. The list is now making the rounds, having been re-posted on French blog Blog du Festival de Cannes.

There's been considerable skepticism about whether or not it's legitimate, most notably because there's still nearly 3 weeks before Cannes is set to announce the lineup (on April 19th) and that the festival is said to still be screening films. This suggests there's no way a competition lineup could be near complete.

Selena Gomez Wraps 'Spring Breakers,' Debuts New Hair For New Movie

After weeks of filming in bikinis in the hot Florida sun, Selena Gomez has wrapped filming on "Spring Breakers," and is already prepping for her next project.

"That's a wrap on Faith for Spring Breakers!!!! Whew craziest experience but amazing. Can't wait to see it..." she tweeted on Friday, posting a photo of the film's clapper board.

The 19-year-old, who was named Favorite TV Actress and Favorite Female Singer at the Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday night, celebrated her wins and the film's wrap with a new hairdo.

On Sunday, Selena said goodbye to the wavy style she'd been sporting and showed off her new hair extensions by celebrity hairstylists and Nine Zero One Salon owners, Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri. "Spring breakers is done now hairs done for the next movie! :)" she tweeted.

According to IMDB, Selena's new hair is for her role in "Aftershock," in which she'll play one of six friends who struggle to survive after an earthquake hits Chile.

Yeezy thinks Big Sean is gonna be the greatest rapper of all time

Big Sean's bash at the Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas might have been his first mtvU Spring Break outing, but we're betting it won't be his last. After all, Sean told MTV News his mentor, Kanye West, revealed he thinks the Finally Famous MC will eventually rank as the best rapper of all time.

After rocking the Palms' poolside stage with "Do It," "Marvin & Chardonnay" and "Dance (A$$)," the Detroit MC told MTV News, "It's just cool as hell, period, because I used to look at all the Spring Break performances when I was coming up. To be doing it myself, I can't even be more thankful."

While his Palms party automatically ranked as Sean's favorite, he also recalled an unforgettable run in Miami. "Besides this one, I went down to Miami one year," Sean said. "Drinks, mixed with girls, mixed with Detroit players — that's a crazy combo."

As far as how one might deal with those next-day hangovers, Big Sean advised, "Don't worry about the morning after. It'll make the night that much better." (lol i like the way he thinks)

For the hardworking G.O.O.D. Music rapper, we're sure the break came in handy. Not only does he have the G.O.O.D. Music compilation dropping sometime this year, Sean is also planning to release his sophomore LP. "My album's coming this summer. I can probably say at the latest at the end of August. I got Tyga on there. I got, of course, 'Ye on there," he revealed.

Somewhere in between all those sessions is when Kanye made his bold and surprising prediction: "I'm here kickin' with 'Ye," Sean recalled, "and 'Ye tellin' me I'm gonna be the best rapper of all time."

Mortal Instruments Movie Woos Sony Back

Sony Pictures Closing On ‘The Mortal Instruments’

With reports last month that Screen Gems dropped the first "Mortal Instruments" adaptation, "City of Bones," fans worried the movie would never go into production. Author Cassandra Clare cleared up the rumors on her Tumblr, telling readers, "Screen Gems didn't drop the project... it was given over by Sony to a different division to develop back in August of 2011... The movie is in development."

Well, it looks like with the incredible success of YA book-to-movie franchises (cough, "Hunger Games"), Screen Gems wants back in. According to a Deadline report, the Sony-back company is close to sealing a deal to distribute the film. We're thrilled the movie is progressing forward, and we've compiled five scenes from the book that we're hoping make it into the big-screen adaptation. Warning: spoilery content ahead for those of you who have yet to read the books!

The 50 Best Action Stars In Movie History


.... according to complex.com

This year is poised to be a good one for the action genre, with fresh entries in the superhero franchise, comic book adaptations galore, and a sequel to The Expendables, the Sylvester Stallone-backed ensemble sequel being the closest we're going to get to a modern-day Dirty Dozen in this decade. The anxiety to see some butts get kicked on the silver screen will subside, and, soon enough, some of Tinseltown's most reliable action gurus will be back at your local theater.

But all got a way to go before one of them graces the following, prestigious list of cinema's greatest butt-kickers, a little something we like to call The 50 Best Action Stars In Movie History.

Chevy Chase backed by 'Community' staffers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Chevy Chase is getting support from several staff members at "Community" ... who tell TMZ there are a bunch of people at the show who feel the actor was UNFAIRLY attacked by show creator Dan Harmon.

As we previously reported, Chase recently left a scathing voice mail for Harmon after the producer led a "F**k Chevy" chant at the season wrap party.

Now, sources who work on the show tell us ... "What Dan Harmon did was f**ked up ... Chevy is a pleasure to work with."

We're told ... many people on set feel the "dispute" that took place between the two men during the taping of the season finale was blown out of proportion by Harmon ... because Chevy was "very respectful."

Here's how we're being told it all went down -- Chevy had an issue with one of the scenes and asked for a rewrite. We're told Chevy was very calm and polite ... but told producers he would "respectfully decline" to participate in the scene unless a change was made.

Producers shot down Chevy's request ... and he quietly left the set without incident.

Our sources tell us they felt the issue had been handled privately because Chevy showed up at the wrap party ... and everyone was shocked when Harmon grabbed the mic and unloaded on the actor.

One source tells us, "What Dan did was embarrassing and left a sour taste in all of our mouths ... so low class."

The source adds, "The staff was not pissed at Chevy ... we're pissed at Dan. We all hope Chevy comes back next season."

Pixar's Brave: Inside look at movie's characters -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Brave (in theaters June 22) is a bit of a maverick among Pixar’s animated repertoire. As the studio’s 13th feature, it represents the first time a Pixar picture has starred — finally! — a female protagonist. Brave‘s also the animation powerhouse’s first fairy tale, its first movie set far in the past (Scotland circa 10th century), and marks a step into slightly darker and creepier territory. In Japan, for instance, the film will be called Merida and the Frightening Forest. “It’s appropriately scary, as much as it needs to be to tell the story effectively,” says Mark Andrews, who shares directing credit with Brenda Chapman. “But it’s not overly horrific or terrifying — we’re not going for a PG-13 rating. You’re in good hands with a Pixar movie, as always.”

Tyler Perry Writes About His Experience With Racial Profiling

On Sunday, Tyler Perry proclaimed on his Facebook page that all "racial profiling should be a hate crime investigated by the FBI." In the revealing post, Perry recounts a recent "hostile" encounter he had with two White police officers in Atlanta who stopped him without reason.

"I didn't feel safe at all," describes Perry. It was not until a Black officer arrived on the scene and recognized Perry that the two White officers apologized for their aggressive behavior.

Perry describes the incident and questions how quickly the situation could've taken a turn "for the worse."

He concludes: "The world needs to know that we are still being racially profiled, and until this situation has improved greatly, I’m not sure how a murder in Florida can be protected by a Stand Your Ground law.”

More than 100,000 of Perry's fans have "liked" the post thus far and nearly 19,000 have commented.

Kerry Washington: "I Love Playing a Complicated Woman"

The actress talks about her new ABC drama, Scandal.

After creating hit medical shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, Shonda Rhimes has set her latest drama in the world of Washington D.C., politics in Scandal. Kerry Washington (Ray, For Colored Girls) stars as crisis management expert Olivia Pope, a professional "fixer" inspired by a real Black woman named Judy Smith, who was behind the scenes in everything from Washington, D.C., Mayor Marion Barry’s drug bust to the Iran Contra investigation. In the seven-episode series, which premieres April 5, Pope will deal with a White House intern sex scandal, a D.C. madam and a secretly gay Congressional Medal of Honor winner. She’s also been having a secret affair with the President (Tony Goldwyn), for whom she previously worked as communications director.

“Judy Smith never had a complicated relationship with the President of the United States,” emphasizes Washington, “but I’m lucky that Judy is a producer on the show because she’s very hands-on and around a lot, and I worked with her on the character.” Reading and watching documentaries also helped her research, but the greatest aid was on the page.

“Shonda writes real people, people who are three-dimensional, fully realized human beings, and that is a joy for any actor, because so often we are having to create the three‑dimensionality of a character and when it’s given to you, it's such a treat. I really love playing a complicated woman. But I am always looking for the good in the character.”

Washington, who heads up an ensemble that includes Columbus Short, Henry Ian Cusick, and Guiilermo Diaz, says, “This is very much an ensemble too, but I feel like it’s my first time at the rodeo, and everything’s really new and different and exciting and I like that too as an actor to be in a new situation. I feel like every day I come to work on this show is like a master class. Our biggest hope and dream for the show is that people will have as much fun watching it as we're having making it because it's the dream job.”

Scandal premieres April 5 on ABC at 10 p.m.

Kate Winslet on Leonardo DiCaprio: "He's Fatter...I'm Thinner!"

The ship may have sunk, but their careers have done anything but.

Fifteen years after Titanic's phenomenal success—those 11 Oscars, those gazillion bucks—Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are at the top of the fame game, amassing nine Oscar nominations and one win between them.

One thing that hasn't changed, though, is their bawdy sense of humor with each other—Winslet has often said DiCaprio is like a brother to her, and she once famously told Vanity Fair, "To me, he's just smelly, farty Leo."

Well, well, well…that wicked sense of humor was on full display when the actress recently looked back on their fateful pairing 15 years ago and took stock of the, ahem, hefty things he's done since…
