Christina Aguilera may be about to drop a new album, but when she attended Thursday’s 2012 Film & TV Music conference, and took some time to talk about getting back into film. However, she’s not looking to take on a traditional role and actually said that she’d be interested in playing a “crackhead” and/or a “drug addict.” This has, naturally, been making headlines, although I’m not sure why. Starting out as a drug addict on film is not always a bad way to break into the industry! Click inside to read more of what Xtina has to say about her movie star aspirations.

Diddy as Prince! The Albas as The Incredibles! And of course, Heidi Klum as Isis. It’s Hallowe’en y’all! And our fave celebrities have been partying their asses off, which is awesome! Peep the gallery to see who wore what and who was completely unrecognizable– like Nicole Richie in a line-up of Girl Scouts, or Hilary Duff, who killed it! I think my fave costume might be Diddy‘s… but I also love that Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough went as Bonnie & Clyde and Emma Roberts went as her Aunt Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Cuteness! Wait, but no… my kids were the cutest. And yes I put them in the gallery because ummm yeah… no, I have no real reason. Except that their Hallowe’en costumes are super cute and it’s kind of a big deal!!! Lol, shameless Mommy promotion. Judge me if you will. Peep the gallery for more!

This is kinda scary news, considering that just yesterday we heard that members of the Houston family were concerned about young Bobbi Kristina‘s excessive drinking (as am I). Apparently, the late Whitney Houston‘s mother Cissy and sister-in-law Pat Houston have been engaged in a legal battle over Bobbi Kristina‘s inheritance, as they were concerned that she was set to come into a lot of money at a very young age. And we all know how that can go… But it sounds like they are dropping the issue completely, and giving Bobbi what she wants. Her money. Now! Or now-ish. Click inside for deets.
Sigh. Ever since we saw the trailer for that new Chris Messina movie, I’ve been in an indie rom-com mood. Totally fell asleep to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind last night. It was glorious. Anyhoo, I’ve been hearing some buzz about this new Lizzy Caplan flick, Save The Date, and I finally watched the trailer today. It looks very promising– slightly reminiscent of Rachel Getting Married, but also has that young, very musical, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist feel to it as well. It looks super sweet, and then super sad, and then bittersweet… but mainly awesome. Peep the trailer for more! I haven’t seen a lot of Lizzy Caplan‘s work but she’s been on New Girl and also had a role in Bachelorette, aaand as PITNBR Tatum aptly pointed out– she was Janis Ian in Mean Girls! I’m sure a lot of you will recognize Alison Brie from Community, so there’s that to look forward to. Anybody else loving the trailer?
Save the Date hits VOD November 8 and theaters December 14.
Back in September we got our first look at Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine in the forthcoming superhero flick The Wolverine. As was expected, Hugh/Logan/Wolverine was looking craaazzyyy ripped, and the same holds true for the new picture. I hadn’t been following the story too closely, so I just found out that James Mangold (who says it is not a prequel) is directing the movie which is awesome… if you were a fan of his other films– Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma and/or Girl, Interrupted. So yeah. Awesomeness! Click inside for one more totally ripped photo of Hugh Jackman, courtesy of Empire. Click now… because it’s hotter if you click right now.
If you listened to R&B at all in the late 90s then you probably remember the group Blaque and their hit songs 808 and Bring It All To Me. Blaque consisted of Natina Reed, Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears-DeVoe, and Natina was celebrated as a protege of TLC‘s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Last night reports surfaced that Natina was hit by a car near Atlanta and pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Natina was 32 and would have celebrated her 33rd birthday today. Her mentor, Left-Eye met a similar fate in 2002 when she died in a tragic car accident at age 30. Click inside for more deets.

A while back we heard totally false rumors that Christina Aguilera was discussing her body image (among other things) in an interview with Billboard magazine. As it turned out the story was completely made up, but there definitely has been chatter and criticism about the pop star’s new body which looks– strangely enough– a lot like the bodies of women everywhere. But since we all occasionally tend to expect the impossible from our celebrities (like, that they don’t eat a whole lot), Christina‘s been catching some flack. Recently, her The Voice co-star (or soon-to-be former co-star, since Xtina is leaving the show) Adam Levine spoke out against the haters or body ‘bullies’. Click inside to read what he had to say.
This has been a seriously rough year on Usher‘s ex-wife Tameka Foster. After losing her 11 year-old son Kyle in a jet-ski accident, she then lost custody of her two children to Usher, and was shortly thereafter kicked out of her house (a property that Usher owns). Now we’re getting new reports that Tameka owes hella back rent to the landlord of her business property and so she’s being sued for $50,000. Click inside for more deets.
If you ever caught the E! reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company, then you probably remember Tyler Shields, the drama-inducing boyfriend of Clint Eastwood‘s daughter Francesca. I caught a few of the episodes when it was on and Tyler was really the controversial character… I was not a huge fan. Reality TV personality aside, he’s also a talented photographer (we’ve seen plenty of his work with Lindsay Lohan) and a huge fan of one of my favorite shows, Revenge. Tyler has been sharing some ah-mazing photo shoots of the Revenge cast on his official website for the past few months and I had to show y’all some of these images. It’s just crazy fun to see these characters getting reimagined in cool ways. And although he’s done the ‘gun’ thing before, I think it was an appropriate prop, given the revenge-y characters he was working with. Tyler‘s Chromatic series is esepecially impressive, as it renders many of our fave people totally unrecognizable. I love it! And I think all of you who’ve been joining me in the Revenge recaps will love it too. Peep the gallery for more!

Last week we got our first look at the new Lifetime reality series The Houstons: On Our Own. Now I, for one, had no real plans to watch the show, but stumbled across the premiere the other night and had the unfortunate experience of watching the last five minutes of the show. It was bad and by ‘it was bad’ I mean ‘Bobbi Kristina was completely wasted’ (words slurring and all) for the final scene. Her father, Bobbi Brown, just got his second DUI of the year and we know addiction played a major part in the untimely death of her mother Whitney Houston. It really, really sucked to see Bobbi Kristina like that and it sucks to hear that her drinking may have gotten worse since filming for the reality show wrapped. Click inside for more.
