We’re still more than two months away from the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (72 days to be exact!), but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited over potential casting news for Episode VIII! While it’s not totally official, a rumor has been swirling around the web that Beyond the Lights and Belle star Gugu Mbatha-Raw has signed on to play a key role in the next Star Wars film. Collider reported the news, adding, “While negotiations can always break down and nothing is official until Disney announces it, we feel confident in our reporting.” First of all, happy dance time!

Back in February of 2014, we learned that actors Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Adam Brody (The OC) got themselves married. Earlier this year, we HEARD that Leighton was pregs with the couple’s first child but no official confirmation was made and in recent months, Leighton has kept a mostly low profile in order to try and keep her pregnancy as private as possible (even tho we totally knew she was pregs with
Seth Cohen Adam‘s baby). Today we learn from Us Weekly that the couple REPORTEDLY welcomed the birth of their baby last week … tho, again, the couple have offered no information whatsoever about the actual birthdate of the baby, the name of the baby, the sex of the baby, if the baby was actually born or if the pregnancy ever existed. But, let’s go with … yes, she was pregs and yes, she was bound to birth that baby eventually so … reporting that it was born last week is probably about right. UPDATE: The baby’s birth has been officially confirmed, click below for all the deets. More »
Rogue One? Episode VIII?
OK, so we need to really settle down and take this new rumor with a huge grain of salt BUT, it is being reported today that actor Hayden Christensen might be appearing in an upcoming new Star Wars movie as Darth Vader … or, at least, very evil Anakin Skywalker. We know that the first Star Wars spin-off movie, Rogue One, began filming in August and the next main Star Wars movie Episode VIII begins filming this month so … if Hayden really is going to reprise his role as Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, he’ll be reporting for duty soon.

Cuffin' Season has begun
Not too long ago I was giving Rihanna props for doing her, and for refusing to be tied down, labeled or officially linked to any one guy in particular. Well, it’s September. And we call this cuffin’ season—that special time of the year when all the summertime fun starts dwindling down. The weather starts to change and, chances are, you’ll want to wife someone up for the fall/winter months. Some people call this pre-cuffin’ season, but the bottom line is, people are settling down and summer romances or flings tend to become more official—or they dissolve entirely to make room for the real deal. According to sources, that’s exactly what’s happening with rapper Travi$ Scott (remember him?) and Badgal Riri. Click inside for more!

He's a blast from the past
It has been a couple of months since our dear Britney Spears broke up with her last boyfriend Charlie Ebersol so it would appear that she is ready to get back into the dating scene. TMZ is reporting that Britney was spotted on a first date last night in Studio City, CA with a guy that some of you OLD SKOOL Pink is the new Blog readers might remember. WAY back in 2006, Lindsay Lohan sparked up a little romance with Harry Morton, the owner of the Pink Taco restaurant franchise. Britney was spied on a date with Harry at a sushi restaurant last night, which is interesting and kinda super weird all at the same time. Click below to see photos that TMZ snapped of Britney and Harry on their date last night and let’s discuss. More »
Written by Aaron Sorkin
The Wrap is reporting exclusively that Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett has been tapped to star in an authorized biopic film about the life of Lucille Ball that will be written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. The film will feature involvement by Ball‘s children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., and will focus on her 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz. Altho not an original story, per se, I am completely in love with the idea of telling Lucille Ball‘s story in a serious biopic film. She remains, undoubtedly, one of the greatest comic actors of the past century and remains an absolute inspiration to fans of her work. Cate as Lucy just sounds so perfect, I’m shocked that no one thought of the casting before now. More »
Yesterday we saw video and photos from the opening night of Janet Jackson‘s Unbreakable World Tour kick-off in Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday night and, as you know, we have yet to hear anything official about the release of her new album Unbreakable. At this point, we only know officially that the album will be released in “the fall” on her own record label — but that’s it. No release date, no nothing. Today we do get to see the rumored cover art for JJ‘s Unbreakable album which may or may not be the real thing. Because it has not yet been confirmed as official, we can’t be 100% sure it’s genuine. That said, the photo of Janet is a new photo so there is a good chance that the album art is the real deal. Click below to see the possible album cover art for Unbreakable and see what you think.

"The break was planned 'with or without Zayn' Malik"
A new report out of the UK, from the British tabloid The Sun, is reporting today that the members of the hugely successful boy band One Direction are planning to “go their separate” ways and pursue solo careers after the release of their next (and final?) album next year. As you should be well aware, former 1D member Zayn Malik already left the group earlier this year to pursue his own solo career and this new report maintains that the rumored forthcoming 1D break-up has been in the works for some time now, before Zayn left on his own. At this point, this report should be considered rumor because there has been no official confirmation of the split BUT when reached for an official statement on this report, the PR team for One Direction gave an suspicious “no comment” rather than a flat out refusal. HMMMM. More »

They better call it, 'Straight Outta Compton 2-pac'
The N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton has proved to be such a box office hit (on track to enjoy a second week in the #1 position at the box office this weekend) that we learn today that plans are in the early stages for a sequel film to come somewhere down the line. Compton briefly features cameo appearances by actors who play Snoop Dogg and Tupac and it is being reported today that the proposed sequel film will focus on those two men and their relation to Death Row Records (which was founded by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight). Normally, I would bristle at news of a hastily conceived sequel film that stems from an already excellent biopic film but considering how well Straight Outta Compton turned out, I am actually looking forward to the same treatment being given to the true life stories of Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

The best thing about this story is that, while waiting for the Matt Barnes TMZ video to load, I was treated to a trailer for the next season of Party Down South. Because Party Down South is still on, and people are watching it (I’m, obviously, better than those people because I only watched Season One and maybe also Season Two). But I digress! I’ve said before that with all of the dating rumors constantly swirling around Rihanna, she is clearly living her life like it’s golden, and like she’s single. That makes me happy. And since we’ve never heard her vehemently deny dating a particular guy, I’m going to assume that all of those past rumors had some truth to them and/or she really can’t stand Memphis Grizzlies NBA baller Matt Barnes. She just ROASTED the bejeezus out of him on Instagram, and it’s pretty hilarious. Click inside for more!
