Zlatan Ibrahimovic to open Eurovision?

Zlatan+Ibrahimovic_8

One of Sweden’s best known sports celebrities, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is set to make an appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest in his home town of Malmö next month, according to the tabloid Expressen.

The paper claims that the footballer's wife Helena Seger - who knows the event's organizer - has convinced him to pre-record a welcome video to millions of TV viewers that will be played during the interval.

Zlatan is rumoured to have been at the top of the list of Swedish celebrities courted by Christer Björkman the Eurovision’s chief organizer, alongside Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson who will perform what they call an "anthem" with the DJ Avicii.

Christer Björkman has refused to confirm or deny Zlatan’s involvement.

Nicole Richie wasn't the only one rocking a bold new hair color at the Costume Institute Gala in New York City May 6. Anne Hathaway, who's been keeping a low profile since winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in March, made her red carpet return to celebrate the opening of the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition.

The former brunette debuted her newly dyed blonde hair at the star-studded event. "I don't know that you could tell it but looking at me, but Debbie Harry was [my inspiration]," Hathaway told Vogue.com. Adam Shulman's wife wore a vintage Valentino gown from 1992.

"I couldn't believe it when he sent me the picture because he asked me if I wanted to wear archive . . He said, 'Well, have you ever done anything punk, darling?'" Hathaway laughed. "Princess, maybe! He sent me this one and I said, 'Oh my god, I love it. It's fabulous! First and only [choice] as soon as I saw it!"

Hathaway added, "I took the chaos thing as far as the couture would allow."

Zachary Quinto on the Epic Kirk-Spock Bromance (LIES, HE ONLY TALKS ABOUT PINE IN THIS ENTIRE THING)



With the impending release of Star Trek: Into Darkness, we caught up with the star to discuss co-star Chris Pine (SEE, TOLD YOU SO)

Since Zachary Quinto was seen on the cover of Out last October, the actor/producer has starred in a critically acclaimed production of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie—now Broadway-bound—slipped back into Spock’s pointy ears for the sequel to 2009’s hit Star Trek and produced, through his company Before the Door, three feature films, including All is Lost (starring Robert Redford), which will premiere this month at Cannes.

Just before he set off on a globe-trotting promotional tour for Star Trek: Into Darkness (in theaters May 17), we talked to Quinto about his surprise visit to Chris Pine’s cover shoot for Out's June issue, his perspective on the epic Kirk-Spock bromance, and what his good buddy Pine cares about even more than being a good actor.

Discover Music: Owl Eyes - Closure

Owl Eyes has released the music video for her current single Closure. A favourite on alternative airwaves, Closure is just the latest in a string of successful singles for the young songstress, better know to her parents as Brooke Addamo.

The video wisely places the attractive Ms Addamo up front where the singer delivers the vocals to the ’80s-influenced pop tune. Apparently Addamo is sitting on a rotisserie, slowly rotating throughout the duration of the clip.

Behind Owl Eyes lurks a gang of movers and shakers clad in white that engage in a session of communal expressive dance that gets so emotionally heated the group must eventually be sprayed down with a cooling mist.

Closure is the lead single from Owl Eyes’ debut album Nightswim, which is due out tomorrow. But if you can’t wait that long to secure your copy then you can preorder Nightswim via iTunes now.

Owl Eyes’ national tour is set to get underway any day now, well actually is starts Saturday, 4th May but still that’s not far away. If you’ve been a lazy sod about getting tickets best do so now or else you might suffer some unexpected ‘closure’ on your plans when tickets sell out.

Tickets are on sale now. Tour dates can be found below the music video for Closure, and stay tuned for a couple of pieces of exclusive Owl Eyes content on Music Feeds in the coming days.

One Direction's New Album Is 'Already Finished,' Ed Sheeran Says



One Direction fans already know that the guys are prepping a new album for Christmas, working with the same production and songwriting teams that created their first two albums, 2011's Up All Night and last year's Take Me Home. And from the sound of things, those sessions have been doing swimmingly.

In fact, according "frequent 1D collaborator/pal Ed Sheeran, the album's already finished. Though, for the first time, it won't feature any of his tunes — not because he wasn't asked to contribute, but because he's just been too busy trying to wrap up his new record.

"I haven't done any songs on this one; I've actually kind of cut myself from giving any people songs at the moment, because I want to make my album," Sheeran said. "I was approached, and it wasn't so much a 'No,' it was just a 'I want to write tunes for myself at the moment.'

"Once my album's done, then we'll see," he added. "But their album is already finished."


Of course, it's not exactly clear what 1D album Sheeran was referring to: A spokesperson for their label, Columbia, told MTV News that "the guys are still very much working on their new album," and added that it wasn't the soundtrack to the group's upcoming "This Is Us" movie, either, since "there won't be one released with the film." At press time, there's still no firm release date for the group's new studio album, though we do know One Directoin will be re-teaming with McFly's Tom Fletcher and producer Julian Bunetta on the disc.

Last month, Bunetta told MTV News that he'd spent time with the guys in the studio, though he didn't reveal whether or not their collaborations would ever see the light of day.

"[We were] hanging out, working on a few new things," he said. "Obviously, we're working on new music, but they didn't say what the new music is for. It might be for nothing. It might only be for my ears ... or it might be something that gets put out for the world to hear."

Frederic Franklin dies aged 98: charismatic ballet dancer



Frederic Franklin, who has died aged 98, was one of the best loved figures in the dance world. Always genial, always helpful, he possessed a razor-sharp memory of all the ballets he had appeared in. Franklin played an important part in the preservation of many early ballets by George Balanchine, and in 2002 was able to reconstruct episodes from Devil's Holiday, a ballet created – but never seen on stage – by Frederick Ashton.

Franklin, generally known as Freddie, was a major star of the post-Diaghilev Ballets Russes, forming a memorable and long-lasting partnership with the ballerina Alexandra Danilova; her champagne personality and his good looks and charisma combined to stunning effect. This was especially true in such ballets as Léonide Massine's Le Beau Danube and especially Gâité Parisienne. But Franklin also danced with most of the leading ballerinas of his time including Alicia Alonso, Alicia Markova and Maria Tallchief.

New Music: Tamar Braxton – ‘The One’


While she awaits the birth of her first child, Tamar Braxton delivers her second single “The One.” On the breezy follow-up to “Love and War,” the mom-to-be samples the Notorious B.I.G.’s classic “Juicy.”

“It has so much energy, it’s so fun, it’s a summertime anthem record,” the “Braxton Family Values” star told Rap-Up TV of the feel-good track, which was produced by Yung Berg and LaShawn Daniels.

She shot a video for the song last month on the beach in Santa Monica. “The concept of the video is just a summer throwback,” Tamar said of the Gil Green-directed clip. “It kinda gives you that feeling when you was in high school and you was with your boyfriend or your girlfriend and you go to the park and you hang out and you get all cutie, and it’s just funners.”

The 36-year-old singer recently inked a deal with L.A. Reid at Epic Records, where she will release her album Love and War later this year.

Jordan (Chronicle) in a career-defining role as Oscar. We saw and fell in love with this film at Sundance, a powerful, moving, heartfelt, intimate portrait of a young man, and a senseless tragedy.

Ja Rule Released From Prison


Ja Rule is a free man. The New York rapper was released from prison today after serving his sentences for attempted illegal gun possession and tax evasion.

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old departed Ray Brook Federal Prison in New York on Tuesday morning. His wife reportedly picked him up around 10 a.m. and drove him home. He will remain on home confinement until July 28.

Rule pled guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon in 2010 and was sentenced to two years behind bars stemming from a 2007 incident when a loaded weapon was found in his car.

In July 2011, the “Put It On Me” hitmaker was ordered to serve 28 months in prison for tax evasion. He served the tax evasion sentence at the same time as his gun possession sentence.

He was originally set for release in July, but was let out early.

Rule previously shared his post-prison plans to launch a world tour. “I want the bus to come straight to the prison and take me to my first show,” he told Rap-Up.com in 2011. “Put my family on the bus, have them come to the first few cities, send them back home, and let me keep going. It’ll be international; 40 cities in 40 nights.”

America's sweetheart RiFF RAFF plays "Jamie Franko" on One Life to Live



The hardest working assclown in showbiz, rapper Riff Raff, appears on today's episode of the soap opera One Life to Live (now brought to you by Hulu) as a “art dealer, multimillionaire” named Jamie Franko. It is a predictably unsubtle jab at James Franco, whose Spring Breakers character Alien was clearly inspired by Riff Raff. As detailed in Amos Barshad's excellent Grantland piece "The Curious Case of Riff Raff vs. Spring Breakers," director Harmony Korine initially invited Riff Raff to appear in the film, but that eventually changed. Franco gave more credit to Florida rapper Dangeruss as "a main source of inspiration" for the role in an essay he wrote for MTV. Dangeruss does appear in the film.

Here is what Riff Raff told Grantland on the quote-unquote situation:



It even came to a point where I was like, "I don't need to get paid. I'll fly out there and do the movie." But [Korine] also didn't put me on the soundtrack, so now I'm looking at it like maybe he's not my friend? And the fact that I have to fight this quote unquote James Franco situation — I don't know, man. Just watch the movie.


And so, in an utterly bizarre act of pop cultural revenge, Riff Raff plays Jamie Franko on a One Life To Live, just as James Franco played Franco on General Hospital from 2009 to 2011. Riff Raff's Jamie has nothing to do with Franco in anything but name in concept — it'd be a stretch to even say that this is Riff Raff doing James Franco doing Riff Raff.

It is, however, astoundingly weird and seemingly improvised. Riff Raff tells club owner Cutter that he's there "to get my monies...need my fettuccines." He refers to a waitress as a "mermaid." He warns women of tumbleweeds in the club. My favorite part is when he encourages the two women he's with to kiss and then when they do, he says, "Oh, that’s so good for me right now. It’s like nutrition in my body." I feel that way exactly about this performance.

Farrah Abraham 'Backdoor Teen Mom' Porn Krushes Kim K Sex Tape



Farrah Abraham is a backdoor crowd pleaser for sure ... because there was such intense, pent-up interest in her porn video, it crashed Vivid's site.

According to our porn sources ... Farrah's 70-minute debut, "Backdoor Teen Mom," lured in more than 2 million visitors in just 12 hours Monday ... annihilating the record previously held by Kim K and Ray J -- which attracted 600,000 during the same time frame.

Farrah swamped Vivid's servers so hard ... the site went down Monday morning for 9 minutes ... which is more than enough time to satisfy most of the buyers -- trust us ...

Vivid honchos tell us they were able to access additional servers to handle, as they put it, "the immense load."

For the record ... Farrah also handled the immense load.

The peace deal even Bill Clinton couldn’t broker – a Led Zeppelin reunion

Despite all the diplomatic capacity, not even a former US President seems to be powerful enough to get the rock legends Led Zeppelin to reunite



A recent episode of CBC show "60 Minutes" presented the viewers with the story of Robin Hood Foundation charity and their efforts for setting up the 12-12-12 Superstorm Sandy Relief concert in New York City last December. According to executive director David Saltzman, the organization even managed to get former President Bill Clinton to support their cause and try to convince iconic rockers to perform.

"There were two bands that we were trying desperately to recruit, one was the Rolling Stones, the other was Led Zeppelin."


Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein "had this great idea that we could enlist Bill Clinton to convince Led Zeppelin to reunite to perform at the 12-12-12 concert. "Harvey had this great idea that we could enlist Bill Clinton who could convince Led Zeppelin to reunite to perform at the 12-12-12 concert. So, Harvey and I got on a plane to fly down to Washington to meet with President Clinton who was going to be seeing the members of Led Zeppelin, who were being honoured at the Kennedy Center." Salzman said, pointing out how Clinton immediately fell for such an idea, but to no avail, as the Led Zep simply weren't up for it.

"And, you know, the president was terrific. He goes, 'I really want to do this. This would be a fantastic thing. I love Led Zeppelin.' And Bill Clinton himself asked Led Zeppelin to reunite. And they wouldn't do it."

Kat Dennings on the twitter exchange with Drake that set delusional fans off



"2 Broke Girls" star Kat Dennings went on "Chelsea Lately" Monday night and dished about what happened when rapper Drake tweeted to her a while back. She also revealed that his fans were much less than thrilled.

While this is the first time the actress has talked about Drake openly in an interview, the rapper has mentioned her in the past. In October 2011, Drake told Elle magazine about his birthday plans and the one special lady he hoped would attend! "I'm gonna invite Kat Dennings. I'm in love with her. She’s really funny.

TNT orders "The Last Ship" starring Eric Dane and Adam Baldwin to series



TNT has ordered to series The Last Ship, a thriller drama based on the William Brinkley novel and executive-produced by filmmaker Michael Bay (Transformers).

Adam Baldwin (Chuck) plays Slattery, the ship’s second-in-command who occasionally clashes with Chandler over the best course of action, and Rhona Mitra (Strike Back) is Rachel Scott, a strong-willed paleomicrobiologist assigned to the Nathan James to investigate what caused of billions of deaths worldwide.

The Last Ship‘s opening salvo of 10 episodes will launch in 2014.

Farrah Abraham "humbled" by sex tape compliments



Farrah Abraham is in elite company: the porn producer behind her XXX flick is the same organization that previously released Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Kendra Wilkinson‘s notorious sex tapes.

But according to the XXX Teen Mom, her fans have already delivered the ultimate review — after just the first day of the tape’s release.

“I’ve gotten a lot of compliments from men and women telling me this is the best sex tape they’ve ever seen from a celebrity so I’m humbled,” the 21-year-old mother-of-one told RadarOnline.com exclusively.

On Monday, the MTV star also took to Twitter to reveal that she won’t be watching the 70-minute feature titled Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.

When asked why, the mother of four-year-old Sophia said: “I’ve made my business deal and now they hold the rights and can edit and alter the movie in whatever way they wish. That might make it more pornographic in order to suit their adult entertainment fans. Therefore, I’d rather stick to watching my version because that is what I had control over. I am happy with it as a keepsake.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Farrah pocketed $1.5 million for the sale to Vivid Entertainment and later defended her decision to do it in a video message to fans.

Kstew and Tom Cruise voted 'Least Trusted Movie Stars in America'

kristen headshot kca

According to a "100 Most Trusted People in America" nationwide poll conducted by Reader's Digest, Kristen Stewart is the least trusted movie star in America.

Reader's Digest compiled a list of more than 200 American opinion shapers, leaders and headline makers from 15 highly influential professions and presented it to more than 1,000 Americans (a representative sample of adults living in the United States), asking them to rank each name on how trustworthy they thought each individual was. Trustworthiness was determined by "integrity and character, exceptional talent, drive to personal excellence, internal moral compass, message, honesty and leadership."

According to their results, Stewart received the lowest trust score (24%) amongst all of the movie stars who made the list, despite her status as one of the highest-paid stars in Hollywood.

And who's the least trusted male star who made the list? Tom Cruise, who scored just 27 percent.

Not surprisingly, popular celebs Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock received the highest scores (65% and 63% respectively), with Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep not trailing far behind (62% and 61%).

Piazza is eminently charming—his youthful rakishness is evident the second he steps into the studio for his cover shoot. A crooked smile deflects the camera’s lens as he shrugs off compliments about his growing resumé—the feature film 3 Nights in the Desert in wraps; The Wannabe, a film of his own in development; off-Broadway theater; and, of course, his performance as real-life gangster Charles “Lucky” Luciano on "Boardwalk Empire," the Golden Globe–winning drama set in Atlantic City under Prohibition.

In which Abercrombie and Fitch is a piece of shit..

Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Explains Why He Hates Fat Chicks



Anyone who’s been to Abercrombie & Fitch in the last few years has probably noticed that they don’t carry XL or XXL sizes of women’s clothing because they don’t  want overweight women wearing their brand.

According to this popular teen clothing retailer, fat chicks will just never be a part of the “in” crowd.

They take a big risk with this tactic because two of Abercrombie’s biggest competitors, H&M and American Eagle, both offer XXL sizes for men and women.

Biggest Mama's Boys in Sports



"Mother's Day is just a month away, so what better time to take a look at those pro athletes who make every day Mother's Day. I'm referring to the guys who can't go more than a few days without the reassuring embrace of the woman who gave them life; who simply don't eat if every other meal isn't mom's chicken tetrazzini.

Considering the logistics behind keeping a loved one in the stands, or in the condo, throughout the season of any of the major sports leagues; the strength of the bond between mother and son/teammate/star can be measured in both dollars and effort.

While being labeled a "Mama's Boy" carries some measure of derision, it's a wide net that catches both the basement-dwelling creepers as well as the dudes who just want their mom to drive a brand new, but sensible, Cadillac sedan...because they love them.

In this spread, the whole spectrum is covered. These are the 20 biggest Mama's Boys in sports.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ beams into theaters one day early, May 16



The wait to see J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness” just got a little shorter. Paramount announced Tuesday that it will release the film May 16, one day earlier than its original opening date of May 17.

Directed by Abrams and written by Alex Kurtzman, Damon Lindelof and Roberto Orci, “Into Darkness” sees the return of Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the USS Enterprise crew as they face a new villain, John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch).

As with so much in the fictional worlds Abrams creates (“Lost,” “Super 8”), many details around the movie have been cloaked in mystery, including the true identity of Cumberbatch’s character. But in a recent interview with The Times, Pine and Quinto shared insight into John Harrison — and the movie’s present-day parallels.

“This film is about earthbound terror,” Pine said, speaking weeks before the real-life bombing at the Boston Marathon. “It’s about terrorism, about issues we as human beings in 2013 deal with every day, about the exploitation of fear to take advantage of a population, about physical violence and destruction but also psychological manipulation. John Harrison is a terrorist in the mold of those we’ve become accustomed to in this day and age.”

In the weeks leading up to its release, “Into Darkness” has drawn some mixed critical reaction. The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy wrote, “As seen in normally dynamic 3D IMAX, however, the film looks surprisingly flat, bordering on cheesy; the images are pale, thin, bleached out, makeup and facial blemishes are magnified and the very shallow depth-of-field in many shots (not the CGI but real photography) works against the point of the format.”

Comingsoon.net’s Silas Lesnick went so far as to call the film a “shameful” chapter in “Trek” canon: “Offering a nonsensical mess of conspiracy theory, ‘Into Darkness’ ends up becoming something stuck midway between a muddled Truther metaphor and a nearly beat-for-beat remake of the identically plotted ‘Star Trek: Nemesis,’ widely regarded as the franchise’s worst entry.”

Germain Lussier of Slashfilm offered a kinder assessment, describing the movie as “a fun but frivolous sequel.” Variety’s Scott Foundas similarly offered restrained praise in his review, writing that Abrams manages to keep the mood “buoyant even when the fate of the universe is hanging in the balance.”

Tickets are available on the “Star Trek” app, or at IMAX.com, Fandango.com or Movietickets.com, as well as other ticketing platforms and at theater box offices.

CYCLOPS RETURNS?

Cyclops has been rumored to appear in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

James Marsden was spotted on a flight from Montreal with Halle Berry by former Newsday journalist Ray Carsillo.


"It seems that both Halle Berry and James Marsden were in Montreal for the next X-movie," he wrote on Twitter.

Marsden portrayed Scott Summers/Cyclops in 20th Century Fox's first three movies, alongside Berry's Storm.

The character was killed in X-Men: The Last Stand but could have the opportunity to return in the time travel tale.

Director Bryan Singer previously said that he plans to "correct a few things" from the previous installments.

The confirmed cast for the movie includes Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Omar Sy, Boo Boo Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Daniel Cudmore, Adan Canto and Fan Bingbing.

Simon Cowell Told Demi Lovato She's Too Fat For X-Factor

Told Her To Lose 20 lbs Before New Season, Thinks its Healthy Advice Despite her Unstable Nature


Ugly

The story goes that X-Factor boss Simon Cowell has told judge Demi Lovato, 20, that she needs to lose 20 pounds before the show starts shooting again in the fall. It was announced about a month ago that Demi is coming back, and they’re still looking for two more judges to replace Britney and LA Reid. All sorts of names have been thrown out there including Cheryl Cole (not happening), Jennifer Love Hewitt (really?!), Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger. In the meantime, Simon is focusing on what he can control and he thinks that’s Demi.

Demi has been very open about her battle with her body image and eating disorder, and if this is true it’s totally clueless of Simon to even bring it up, not to mention tell Demi to lose weight! Simon needs to sit the f down. He does seem like a clueless a-hole most of the time, though, and we all know he’s harsh. He probably thinks he’s “helping” her. I hope Demi is secure enough at this point to blow it off and/or to tell Simon where to stick it.

Just two and a half years ago, The X Factor judge Demi Lovato checked herself into rehab for cutting and bulimia – and she only just recently left her sober living facility. But Star has learned that her boss, Simon Cowell, is demanding she lose 20 lbs. before the show’s fall premiere! An insider says that although Simon loves Demi’s feisty attitude, he believes she has ballooned since the season two finale in December – and it’s bugging him. “Simon doesn’t expect Demi to be supermodel skinny, but he does want her to look like she’s in shape,” stated the insider. “He’s set a weight-loss goal of 20 lbs. for Demi and asked her to work hard on it through the spring and summer.” This sounds like an insensitive order to a young woman who has wrestled with body image issues – but the insider insists that Simon “is very supportive of her battles and is going above and beyond to make sure she loses weight in a healthy way.” Which must be reassuring, because it’s not like her job depends on his opinion or anything!.

5 Reasons Madonna Was the Met Gala's Punk Queen



When Beyoncé arrived on the red carpet at last night's Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, we thought the show was over: Queen Bey had arrived fashionably late to fashion's biggest night, and she stole the show in custom Givenchy. But just around the corner, Madonna — perhaps the original Queen of Pop — seemed ready to take back her throne. Moments after Beyoncé made her way atop the staircase, Madonna showed up in a look so punk, we thought she might have ransacked the museum's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition to get all the materials. (Which, now that we think about it, would have been quite fitting.)

Captain America Buys a House in Hollywood


Chris Evans - best known as Captain America - paid $3.52 million for a recently renovated mid-century ranch in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood of the Hollywood Hills so he can be near Minka work.

The 4,600-square-foot house was purchased by a flipper in June 2012 for $1.9 million. That owner completely renovated the three-bedroom pad, adding an updated kitchen, and refinishing the floors. The house was listed for $3.5 million. The swimming pool and several outdoor entertaining spaces enjoy views of LA.

'Scandal's' Shonda Rhimes on the Mole's Identity and the Double Twist Ahead

"We end the season in a way that explodes the premise of the show," the showrunner tells THR of exposing the mole and Olivia and Fitz's relationship.



Mellie (Bellamy Young) has gone public with Fitz's extramarital affair and things are about to explode with only two episodes remaining in Scandal's sophomore season. As Mellie continues to put herself in the spotlight, the fabric of the ABC political thriller has been turned on its head as Olivia (Kerry Washington) and her Gladiators at OPA still have yet to identify the mole.

So who is it? Will the secrets between Olivia and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) conspire to tear the newly reunited (and seemingly perennially doomed) couple apart?  How does John Barrowman's mysterious character figure into things? The Hollywood Reporter turned to Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes to get the scoop on what to expect as the season winds to a close.

Jada Pinkett Smith Will 'Salsa' w/ William Levy In New Romantic Drama



Jada Pinkett Smith will star in and produce (via Overbrook Entertainment) a romantic drama titled Salsa, which will center on a young woman (Jada) who, while at a critical crossroad in her life, meets a hunky Salsa teacher, and decides to learn Salsa dancing. Naturally, a romance blossoms from there. Actor, model, soap star and Dancing With The Stars alum William Levy will play the hunky Salsa teacher.

The script is penned by Amy Heckerling, who'll also direct the feature, with Pinkett-Smith and Miguel Melendez producing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2014.

It looks like Jada's working her way back into acting for the big screen, and seems especially bent on making a push into the Latin American entertainment market. It was less than a month ago when it was revealed that she would be starring in a Colombian thriller titled La escribana de uraba, which translates to The Clerk of Urabá, which is inspired by true events - the true story of a 14 year old Colombian girl whose father was killed in the late 1980s, and the investigation into his death by a US multinational representative.

Jada was in Colombia (Bogota specifically) last month, checking out the lay of the land, and even met with President Juan Manuel Santos, Culture Minister Mariana Garces and representatives of various organizations, to discuss the project.

Also, last summer, you might remember that she released a new music track and accompanying video with her band, Wicked Evolution, for a song titled Nada Se Compara, which she sung in Spanish. The video was directed by Salma Hayek.

And now there's this Salsa feature with one of Latin America's soap opera hunks, William Levy.

As for Levy, he's also been busy, booking roles in a few big screen projects - from Tyler Perry's Single Moms Club, to Lionsgate's big screen adaptation of erotic fiction writer Zane's popular novel, Addicted. He also had a recurring role on VH1's Single Ladies.

Wade Robson Accuses Michael Jackson of Child Molestation


Michael Jackson has been posthumously accused of molesting a now-famous choreographer who spent lots of time with the singer at the Neverland Ranch ... TMZ has learned. TMZ has obtained legal docs ... filed by Wade Robson ... in which he's asking for money from the Michael Jackson Estate for childhood sexual abuse.

Robson -- now 30 years old -- has worked with top names in pop music including Britney Spears, *NSYNC, Usher and P!nk. He has also appeared on "So You Think You Can Dance." Wade met Michael when he was 5 years old and they developed a friendship that lasted for years.  By the time Wade was 7, he went for sleepovers at Neverland and MJ's homes in L.A. and Vegas.  The sleepovers continued until Wade was 14.

In 2005, Wade testified in MJ's molestation trial and DENIED Michael ever molested him.

Wade's lawyer filed legal docs May 1 asking the judge in the Michael Jackson Estate case to allow him to file a late creditor's claim against the Estate.  In the documents, Wade's lawyer says he submitted a never-before filed complaint "for childhood sexual abuse." Wade's lawyer has filed the actual complaint under seal -- which means it's not available to the public.  Sources tell TMZ ... the complaint specifically outlines the alleged abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson. Wade's lawyer also mentions a psychiatrist who treated Wade -- the doctor is a leader in the field of child psychology.

Interestingly ... in the 2005 molestation trial, Jackson's former housekeeper, Blanca Francia, testified she witnessed Jackson in the shower with Wade when the boy was 8 or 9 years old.

Jennifer Lawrence & Nicholas Hoult At the Met Gala 2013



The actors, who split in January after dating for two years, both attended the gala but did not even come close to bumping into each other on Monday night's red carpet, however, walking the celebrity packed stretch at different times.

Jennifer wore a black embellished 1950s inspired strapless Christian Dior dress with Brian Atwood shoes and a Jennifer Behr headpiece which featured a mini netted veil. Nick put his own spin on the classic tuxedo wearing traditional tux trousers, shirt and bow tie but with a vibrant purple jacket with a light purple pocket square.

The pair originally met on the set of X-Men: First Class and now the former couple are back working on the newest X-Men installment.
They were recently spotted enjoying a dinner date in Los Angeles.

Jen on her dress: "(Me and Dior Creative Director Raf Simons) went out for lunch, and we started talking about dresses. And he told me I should wear this one. I said 'okay', and then I wore it."

Jen on whether she had a punk phase: "No, I didn’t have a punk phase. I’m supposed to say yes but, no. I was a cheerleader."

Cher Sells Her Mansion To Beyonce For $45 M


Cher's lavish mansion on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu has been sold to another epic diva: Beyonce herself. It was listed in 2008 for $45 million however it was taken off the market because Cher said the view was too good to get rid of. However in March it was silently put back up for sale and it has been picked up by Queen B.

The 13,126-square-foot mansion has an Italian Renaissance-style and is quite astounding as you can see in the photos above. It boasts stone walls and a stamped-copper dining-room ceiling. The Ron Wilson-designed palace contains seven bedrooms, 9 baths, a theatre, a tennis court, a pool, and an adjacent guest house. It is truly a palace.

Apparently this past Saturday the deal went through and Cher held a party following the big news.

Lindsey Buckingham Talks Fleetwood Mac Tour, New EP

'Stevie and I have probably more of a connection now than we have in years'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's been exactly a decade since Fleetwood Mac released a full album, but that hasn't stopped a new generation of fans from discovering the band. "We're doing the best business we've done in 20 years," guitarist Lindsey Buckingham tells Rolling Stone a few hours before the Tulsa, Oklahoma stop on the band's latest tour. "There seems to be a cyclical re-igniting of interests, and there's certainly a lot more young people out there than three years ago."

Months before they started tour rehearsal, the band cut a four-song EP titled Extended Play with producer Mitchell Froom. "When we finally decided this was going to be the year we were going to tour again, I thought it would be great to cut some new stuff," says Buckingham. "I knew we wouldn't have time to cut a new album. Stevie [Nicks] was still caught up in her solo thing, but I got John [McVie] and Mick [Fleetwood] over from Hawaii. They played their asses off. It was a great experience."

Stevie Nicks arrived at the sessions towards the end, and Buckingham presented her with "Sad Angel." "I wrote that song for Stevie," he says. "She always had to fight for everything. She was coming off a solo album and was in the process of reintegrating herself mentally in the band, and we're all warriors with a sword in one sort or another. She and I have known each other since high school. So I just wrote, 'Sad Angel have you come to fight the war/We fall to earth together, the crowd calling out for more.'"

Kaya Scodelario Discusses New Projects



Every year (at least in the last few), it seems there's at least one actress who, while already on many radars, comes to Sundance with a performance that launches her to true stardom. Carey Mulligan, Felicity Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Olsen, Mia Wasikowska and Quvenzhane Wallis all went to Park City as complete or relative unknowns, and left at the top of casting wish-lists. This year, perhaps the most notable Sundance starlet to break out was Kaya Scodelario.

Despite only being 21, the actress has been a familiar face on screen for a while now, thanks to a small role in "Moon," and more importantly, being the only actor to bridge the first two generations of cult UK teen series "Skins." But after several promising performances over the last few years, most notably in Andrea Arnold's "Wuthering Heights," she's truly blown up in 2012, thanks in part to her turn in the Sundance flick "Emanuel & The Truth About Films."

Scodelario toplines Francesca Gregorini's film, in a role once intended for Rooney Mara, as a troubled teenage girl who forms a bond with the mysterious single mother (Jessica Biel) who's just moved in next door. It's a head-turning, star-making piece of work that's sure to mean that she'll be adding a lot more to an already-busy dance card that also includes UK miniseries "Southcliffe," which focuses on a mass shooting, and is directed by "Martha Marcy May Marlene" helmer Sean Durkin, and young adult blockbuster "The Maze Runner."

Just before she went off to shoot the latter, we caught up with Scodelario during Sundance London, where "Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes" was getting its European premiere, to discuss all of the above, and much more. Read on below, beware of some spoilers in certain clearly-marked sections.

Star Wars Reunion: Ewan McGregor Joins 'Jane Got A Gun'



Well, despite whatever upheaval is going on casting wise, perhaps Joel Edgerton wasn't kidding when he said everything was "wonderful" on the set of "Jane Got A Gun." Thus far, the villain role has been toughest to slot with Michael Fassbender, Jude Law, and Bradley Cooper all coming and going as the movie has been rocked by director changes and cast defections; but perhaps this one will stick? At any rate, it will give "Star Wars" fans the reunion between Obi Wan-Kenobi and Queen Amidala they've been waiting for.

That's right, Ewan McGregor is busting out the spurs to take on the bad guy role in the Natalie Portman starring and produced western. It's a reteam of the "Star Wars" prequel stars and my God they were once so young... Here's a refresher: The film will follow Jane Hammond (Portman), a good girl married to one of the worst baddies in town. When her husband Bill (Noah Emmerich) turns against his own gang, the vicious Bishop Boys, and returns home barely alive with eight bullets in his back, Jane decides to grab a gun and take matters into her own hands. As the relentless leader John Bishop (McGregor) gears up for revenge, Jane’s best hope for her family’s survival rests with her old love Dan Frost (Joel Edgerton) – a gunslinger whose hatred for Bill is only slightly overshadowed by his love for Jane.

We have to say, it's a pretty great casting replacement and stepping back for a second -- a western starring Portman, McGregor and Edgerton? Hard to argue with that. Yes, we can always dream about what Lynne Ramsay could've done with the material, but Gavin O'Connor is no slouch so perhaps everyone involved can make some good lemonade out of the last couple months of lemons. And with Ramsay headed to Cannes as part of Steven Spielberg's jury, we presume we'll hear her side of the saga soon enough.

Production is underway in New Mexico and barring any other disruptions, this is the final shape the movie will be in. Knock wood.

H&M Winning Raves for Having a Normal-Looking Woman Model Its Beachwear



It would be nice if we didn't live in a world where this is considered news, but for better or worse, it is. H&M has selected a swimwear model who actually has a normal human body. Jennie Runk, a size 12 from America, will appear in this season's beach-related advertising for the brand. "She is absolutely gorgeous and has a normal body. How refreshing," writes one commenter on the Ford Models gallery of photos from Runk's H&M shoot. Like many fashion brands, H&M has been criticized in recent years for featuring "unhealthily thin" models in ads. H&M even used CGI to create waifish bodies that models' heads could be dropped on to as needed. However, brand reps seem to be downplaying Runk's body type by saying she was simply the best pick for the ads. "Our aim is not to convey a certain message or show an ideal," H&M spokeswoman Jennifer Ward tells Quartz.com, "but to find a model who can illustrate this collection in an inspiring and clear way."

Tim Tebow Tops Forbes' 2013 List Of America's Most Influential Athletes

Well, this would seem to be a first. The four most influential athletes in America really don’t play. At least not lately.

Idle NFL quarterback Tim Tebow has been back in the news, but not for any heroics: he was recently cut loose by the New York Jets after a one-year experiment as a part-time QB behind Mark Sanchez failed to yield results. The “Tebowmania” days in Denver are only 15 months old, but it seems like 15 years. And yet, when Americans are asked which pro athletes they believe carry the most influence on the public, Tebow’s name tops the list.

Paloma Faith lying about her age?

English pop star Paloma Faith claims (now) to have been born in 1985. However, simple research casts doubt upon this date. First of all, Paloma Faith's birth certificate has been floating around the internet, refuting Paloma's claim to only be 27:

 photo birthrecord_zps1861ea2a.jpg

In interviews from early in her career, Faith was a little more honest about her birth year. In an interview with Trespass Magazine in 2007, she stated her age as 26. In a 2010 interview with Islington Gazette, she told the interviewer she was 29. However, it seems that once she turned 30, her official bio changed her birth year to 1985 (as seen in an interview from last year where she claimed to be only 27).

Oh, Paloma.

K. Michelle - Rebellious Soul (Webisode #1)


K. Michelle has risen to stardom on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” which kicked off its second season last month. But there’s more to the in-your-face reality star than what we see on TV.

In the premiere episode of her “Day in the Life” diary, the Memphis soulstress heads to New York to start promo for her upcoming debut Rebellious Soul. She stops by the Atlantic Records offices and conducts interviews with media outlets before heading to the hair salon to get bangs (“I get excited by weave,” admits K).

During her whirlwind trip to the Big Apple, she also meets with her manager Jeff Robinson of MBK Entertainment and hits the studio to record a new song. She shows her deep connection with her fans during an emotional phone call with a Twitter follower who sent her flowers.

Exclusive: Tiger Woods Gets Tipsy, Embarrasses Lindsey Vonn at Met Gala Afterparty



Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn's first night out together in the Big Apple didn't exactly go without a hitch. After walking the red carpet amid a sea of celebrities for the annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, the talked-about couple headed downtown for a star-studded after party at the Boom Boom Room, held at the top of the Standard Hotel.

Looking stunning in a long white dress with high see-through slits in the front, the blonde ski champ, 28, confidently steered her golfer beau, 37, through the formidable crowd. (Leonardo Dicaprio, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Chris Brown, Solange Knowles and Kate Upton were just a few of the boldfaced attendees.)

"Tiger looked uncomfortable," an onlooker at the Boom Boom Room says. The twosome checked out the Manhattan skyline (with a tux-clad Woods embracing Vonn from behind) and then took their seats, where they chatted, drank, held hands and kissed for much the night. At one point in the evening, the once-divorced golfer got up to dance awkwardly, bopping from side to side and grabbing Vonn's butt affectionately as she giggled.

When it was time to go, around 2 a.m., a seemingly tipsy Woods fell while walking up a small flight of stairs -- and didn't move from the spot until Vonn, clenching her teeth and looking embarrassed, helped him up and guided him (swaying a bit as he walked) to the exit, according to a witness.

In their red carpet debut as a couple, the pair attended the Met Gala as guests of Vogue; the magazine dressed both of the athletes, who declined interviews with reporters on the carpet.

"Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating," Woods wrote when he and Vonn announced their relationship via Facebook last March. He famously split from wife Elin Nordegren back in 2010 following an epic cheating scandal.
