Back in February we learned that Academy Award-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis was cast as the lead in the upcoming film remake of Annie, alongside Jamie Foxx (as Benjamin Stacks aka Daddy Warbucks), Rose Byrne (as Grace, the loving assistant) and Cameron Diaz (as the villainous Miss Hannigan). Filming production of Annie has been taking place all over Manhattan in recent weeks and this week filmed a fun parade in Harlem. Click thru the gallery to see cute photos of these actors in action in the roles they play. I am IN LOVE with the casting of this film. Quvenzhané will make the perfect Annie and Jamie will make a decent Daddy. I’m kind of intrigued with the idea of Cameron as Miss Hannigan. Carol Burnett made the role LEGENDARY in the original film, I’m curious to see how well Cameron does with the role. I’m really looking forward to this production of Annie. I hope they do the story justice. Considering the caliber of actors they have in the film, I am not worried at all.
In early November we learned that Madonna‘s eldest child, Lourdes Maria, would be playing the role of Rizzo in her high school production of the musical Grease. Today we get to see photos of Lola on stage in character as Rizzo on the show’s opening night as well as photos of Madonna waiting by the backstage door after the performance was concluded. It would appear that the acting bug has been passed from mother to daughter … let’s just hope that Lola has more success in the acting world than her mother ;) Click below to see photos and read deets about last night’s performance of Grease.

Welp, I guess it was only a matter of time before controversy managed to eke back into Lindsay Lohan‘s life. For some reason, the still-recovering Lindsay decided to head down to party central in Miami, FL for Art Basel this weekend and wouldn’t you know it, she managed to get into a bit of reported trouble. Forget the reports that she was partying around a lot of alcohol and drugs, let’s focus on the allegation that she had something to do with the physical assault of Paris Hilton‘s younger brother Barron Hilton, II. The drama goes like this … Barron and Lindsay are at the same party, Barron starts talking shizz about Lindsay and Lindsay‘s people (supposedly at her direction) proceeded to beat the snot out of Hilton, leaving him bloodied and in need of medical attention at the local hospital (click below to see Barron‘s bloodied face). Lindsay says she has nothing to do with Barron‘s assault, even tho the two were filmed yelling at each other at the event. Lindsay, thy middle name is DRAMAAAA! More »
Yesterday was my first full day here in Waikiki, HI and it was a gloriously warm and very relaxing day. Once I finished up with work, I ventured out into the city to soak up the sun and find some food. I did a bit of window shopping on my way to Duke’s for a meal of macadamia nut crusted chicken (which was amazing, btw) and ONE Lava Flow drink. Emma and I drank a few of these when we visited Hawai’i last year so I had to drink one in her honor. I spent much of the afternoon walking around, just generally enjoying the company of all the friendly locals. Man, this place is great. I spent my night in … but when you find out who kept me indoors all night, you’ll totally understand why. More »

Because Miley Cyrus was NOT nominated for a single Grammy Award this year she was not invited to perform at the Grammy Awards Nomination Concert inside the Nokia Theater in LA last night … but it really wasn’t a big deal for Ms. Cyrus because she was otherwise engaged with a performance at the annual KIIS FM Jingle Ball concert inside the Staples Center right across the street. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Miley used her performance last night to go buckwild on a dirt-ass, trashy Santa Claus proving once and for all that she deff belongs on the Naughty List this year. Have a look at the photos from Cyrus‘s performance last night to see exposed tongue, twerking and all around general Mileyness. Nothing says Merry Xmas like a young popstar rubbing her ass up against Santa Claus‘s crotch, right?

Last week we got our first look at the newly released music video for Jamie Lynn Spears‘s new Country single How Could I Want More. Today, JL treats us all with a live performance of another of her new Country songs. Jamie Lynn has embarked on a short, intimate run of live concert performances to promote the upcoming release of her debut album and last night she performed the song Ms. Mississippi for a lucky group of fans. Midway thru the song, JL busted out a rendition of big sister Britney Spears‘s massive hit song Oops!… I Did It Again. She even managed to work in the hand-to-heart-pump dance move as she performed. And you MUST watch to the very end … JL gives our dear Britney a very sweet shoutout. Check out the video embedded above to watch the performance in full … or FFWD to the 2:05 mark for the start of JL‘s cover of Oops! I am in LOVE with this performance, are you?
Royals singer Lorde is blowing up all over the place (everyone is covering her work), and it looks like we’re going to be seeing more and more of her now. She just got a spread in Wild magazine and I am loving this look on her– those Dolce & Gabbana designs with religious iconography? Love, love, love. Peep the gallery to check out Lorde in.

Last month we heard some big new from Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada. The reality show personality announced to the world that she was pregnant with her second child, and she was absolutely thrilled. Evelyn had been staying out of the limelight for some time, and I hadn’t been keeping up with her following that nasty domestic violence situation. Anyway, she’s moved on since then and started a family with a new boo, but she was keeping his identity a secret for a while. Well, we now know who the babydddy is. Click inside for more!
