Nicki Minaj Will Reportedly Become A New Judge On ‘American Idol’

The Deal Isn't Done Yet But ...

For the past few days there have been rumors going around about which musicians might be added to the forthcoming new season of American Idol as judges. Nicki Minaj, Enrique Iglesias and Keith Urban have been floated around as possible new judges for the show … and today, US Weekly is reporting that Nicki is “definitely” joining AI as a judge. As I understand it, the Nicki deal is complicated because she is a spokesperson for Pepsi Cola and Idol is sponsored by Coca Cola. The folks at Pepsi aren’t too keen on their spokesperson appearing on TV weekly with a big red Coke glass sitting in front of them. If this report is true and Nicki does join Idol as a judge, it would seem that the Cola Wars matter has been settled. Read on for all the known deets about this American Idol casting rumor. More »

Zoe Saldana Will Play Nina Simone In The Jazz Singer’s Biopic

Oh. Heeeellll. No.

Truthfully, this should be filed under today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day, but those are usually kind of funny and there is nothing funny about this. Okay y’all. Bear with me while I get my rant on. Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek, Drumline with Nick Cannon) is playing jazz legend NinaNe Me Quitte PasSimone in an upcoming biopic????!!!!! Oh. Hell. No! ((deep breath)) Okay, I am so on my Emma Clark (the Twihard) ish right now. If I had the balls to make a YouTube account, oh the things that I would say! Lol, okay but seriously. No. Zoe Saldana is great. She’s cute. She’s funny (or something). She’s done some good work. However. Nina Simone… is… probably… a god. Or at least, if god could sing… she would totally try to sing like Nina Simone. That’s just, like, a scientific fact. Click inside for deets on this ridiculous news and more [not so]scientific facts from me about life, love, and light-skinned girls.

Kristen Stewart Reportedly Dropped From ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’ Sequel

The Follow-Up Film Will Instead Be Just .... The Huntsman

So … the fall out from the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal is starting to take shape as Robert Pattinson begins to emerge from hiding in order to promote his new film Cosmopolis and K. Stew continues to hide out in the hole she’s undoubted crawled into. A report from The Hollywood Reporter claims that Stewart has been axed from the planned sequel film to Snow White and the Huntsman … which, in case you’ve forgotten, is the film where she met married director Rupert Sanders and apparently started up their affair. Some people are spinning this story by saying Kristen wasn’t been fired from the film because the script hasn’t even been written … so there’s nothing to be fired from. BUT, there is no way that before this cheating scandal came to light the plan was to make a Snow White sequel without Snow White. Whether she was technically “fired” or not, it seems clear that the movie studio is looking to distance itself from Kristen Stewart … very likely because of the scandal that she is embroiled in right now.

The Beginning of the End?

Bad news soap fans, one of the biggest names on one of the most popular daytime dramas is leaving his show after 25 years. Ronn Moss, one of the original castmembers of The Bold and the Beautiful is reportedly leaving the show in the wake of a contract dispute. As you may know, daytime dramas have been going off the air due to financial problems and at this point, there are only 4 daytime soap operas left on US TV.

Shia LeBeouf Is In Talks To Join The Cast Of The Erotic Movie ‘Nymphomaniac’

More LaBeoufian Nudity On The Way?

Okay, those of you who were into that Sigur Rós video where Shia bared his LaBeouf need to calm down right now. This movie is in its beginning stages and we do not– I repeat– do not have confirmation that Shia is getting naked again joining the cast. But it looks like you may have something to be excited about soon… Director Lars Von Trier brought us last year’s Melancholia, and we got to see another side to Kirsten Dunst who took the lead role in a film about sisterhood and the end of the world. It looks like his next film might work to redefine another  familiar face… and I’m definitely interested. Shia LeBeouf is in talks to join Nymphomaniac, a two-part erotic movie that chronicles a woman’s entire sexual history, but does so through the eyes of her husband. Nicole Kidman may also take a part in this sure-to-be steamy drama. I’ve just seen Melancholia recently and I really loved it so I cannot wait to find out more about this director’s latest! Deets inside.
