How Does Aaliyah’s Family Really Feel About Drake’s New Project?

Drake Hearts Aaliyah

Earlier this week we got to hear the first new posthumous Aaliyah track, Enough Said featuring Drake and a lot of us had mixed feelings about the amazingness that is and was Aaliyah being re-introduced to the world via young Drizzy. There were also a lot of unanswered questions about who would actually be involved in the project (other than Drake), and whether or not Timbaland and Missy Elliot would be called on for production. A couple of days ago a statement surfaced that was allegedly from Aaliyah‘s brother Rashad Haughton. It read, ‘there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.‘ However, others came forward and said that the Facebook account through which that statement had been released had been hacked and that this was an old statement from many months ago (notice there was no mention of Drake). And Drake himself has come forward and said (in the video above, which was recorded prior to all this drama) that all of the appropriate people who should be involved will be involved with the project. Watch the video and click inside to get more deets.

Watch: Johnny Depp Rocks Live On Stage With Aerosmith

Party Like A Rock Star

Here’s the thing about Johnny Depp as a rock star. It. Just. Makes. Sense! Now this is only the second time I’ve seen him perform (the first time being during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards), but I’m totally sold. And seeing as how music was his first real passion (remember, he dropped out of school to become a rock star and ended up doing film), this whole movement is really working out for him. I would have totally lost it if I’d been at The Hollywood Bowl earlier this week. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler suddenly announced to the crowd, “We’re going to need a little help out here… Johnny Depp, are you in the house?” Madness ensued as Johnny (newly single, not that I care or anything) sauntered on stage in that friggen crazy sexy brimmed hat and proceeded to rock the ish out of Train Kept A-Rollin’. Watch Johnny do the damn thing in the video; as long as Ryan Gosling doesn’t release a video of himself singing, like, old Keith Sweat songs, this is guaranteed to be the sexiest thing you’ll see all day.

Kate Bosworth Is Engaged To Director Michael Polish

I don’t know if anyone else is keeping up with Kate, but I’ve become a big fan recently, having seen her in two indie films that were pretty sweet. L!fe Happens came out earlier this year and While We Were Here premiered at Tribeca, and I fell in love with both femme-centered stories, and the roles that Kate Bosworth played. She’s got some serious range as an actress and I really hope we get to see more of that in her upcoming movies. But today is not about movie news for the young actress; Kate just recently spilled the beans on her engagement to Michael Polish (director of the 2006 movie The Astronaut Farmer), so congratulations are in order! Details inside.

Watch: Jessica Biel And Gerard Butler Are Adorable In The ‘Playing For Keeps’ Trailer

Cuteness

Okay. So it’s a little cheesy. And there’s that holiday rom-com trailer music playing in the background. But that’s not gonna stop me from getting excited about Playing For Keeps. Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, and Catherine Zeta-Jones are starring in this story of love, loss, and… soccer? Yes. Soccer. And I’m still into it. The kids help; they’re kind of hilarious. And I’ll watch any movie about a father and son. Those are usually the best… Shouts-out to Martin Scorsese! But the director of this film is Gabriele Muccino, the guy who brought us The Pursuit Of Happyness and Seven Pounds, so I’m thinking the cheese-factor might pan out in the end.

What do you guys think? Are you down to watch Gerard Butler play soccer and make a few parental mistakes, while remaining totally cute and charming all the while? No? Just me?

First Look: Lady Gaga Covers ‘Vogue’ For The Second Time

Lady Gaga herself shared the cover on her social networking site with this message: “SHH DONT TELL TWITTER/ SEPT ISSUE OF VOGUE MAGAZINE/ Sorry Anna but the underground kids deserve it. bisous! 1ST.” I’m thinking, someone did not follow these instructions.

It's Like We're Kissing In Rome

Hunter Parrish, the young actor who made the transition from TV to the Broadway stage, is making a new transition in his carrer … to popstar. Hunter has just unleashed his first music video for his first single Sitting At Home. The video is cute and the song is OK but … I was hoping for more.
