It’s official!!! Bryan Singer is on board to direct X-Men: Apocalypse, scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2016. There was doubt that a lawsuit filed by Michael Egan claiming sexual abuse would threaten the 49-year-old director’s participation in the film. With Egan dropping the lawsuit last month, Singer is free and clear to direct the highly-anticipated sequel.

Singer helmed the first two X-Men films of the original franchise and returned to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. The latter is the most successful one in the franchise’s history with a worldwide gross of $746 million. Production on X-Men: Apocalypse will begin early next year. Are you excited Bryan is back? Sound off below.

Recently, P!nk joined forces with Canadian singer Dallas Green to form a new folk duo called you + me. They release their first album together titled rose ave. on October 14.

Their first track “you + me” was a gentle folk ballad. They follow that up with another acoustic-driven gem. This time, however, P!nk dedicates the song, “Break The Cycle,” to her mother.

“We were at the bar talking and I really wanted to write a song about my mom,” P!nk tells HuffPost Entertainment. “It didn’t turn out to be quite the love song I thought it would be, but it’s very honest and came out to be so much more.” Give the track a listen below and weigh in afterward.

OMG!!! Please say it isn’t so. Who’s going to play Whoopi Goldberg for future skits on Saturday Night Live? #travesty

According to TMZ, the show’s most seasoned active performer is planning to leave at the end of the 2014-15 season. Their sources say Kenan Thompson wanted out last season, but producer Lorne Michaels convinced him to stay since there was massive cast changes last year.

The 36-year-old joined the show in 2003, making him the most tenured African-American cast member in the show’s 40-year history. Reportedly, he wants to move to the West Coast with his wife and new baby to pursue new opportunities.

Will you miss Kenan? What’s your favorite performance of his? Weigh in below after reliving his hilarious impersonation of Whoopi.

UPDATE: EW.com reached out to an SNL spokesperson. They said the report is “inaccurate as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”

Kiesza Previews Two More Tracks From Debut Album

Ahead of the release for Sound of A Woman, Kiesza is sharing two more tracks from her debut album. The first, “No Enemiesz” is in the vein of her other two releases, “Hideaway” and “Giant In My Heart.” All serve up 90s dance realness with slinky deep house beats.

Meanwhile, the Canadian singer trades in her signature sound for “Bad Thing.” She slows things down for more of an urban R&B vibe. Adding some swagger to the track is 19-year-old Brooklyn rapper Joey Badass. The laid-back track is perfect for Kiesza’s vocals to shine and do all the talking instead of her dance beats. Give both new tracks a listen below.

Behind The Cast: Hawaiian Vacay

Aloha bitches!!! I suppose that’s not really in keeping with the Hawaiian islands’ friendly spirit ;)

If you noticed the sparse number of posts this week, this is the reason why. I’m currently in Maui with a few friends for a little vacay. Typically, when Brian and I go traveling we love going out all day checking out the tourist landmarks and then hitting the nightlife. This trip, is a bit of a departure for us. It’s full-on relaxation mode. It’s been the beach, pool, drinks, day road trips and repeat. I’ve gotta say, I’m quite enjoying the downtime.

We’re about halfway through our trip and I wanted to share a few pics I’ve taken since arriving. So far, we’ve enjoyed a luau, driven the beautiful road to Hana, splashed around at Big Beach in Makena and ate lots of delicious food. Check out a few photos below. I’m here til Friday, so expect another week of limited posts. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. Follow me on Instagram.

Call me biased (I love him), but can Pitbull do any wrong when it comes to churning out club bangers. The 33-year-old rapper consistently provides the goods with “Timber” and “Feel This Moment” being excellent examples.

For his latest “Fireball,” a Latin-tinged scorcher, Pitbull enlists newcomer John Ryan to provide the vocals. It’s off his forthcoming album, Globalization, due out early next year. David Rousseau directs the accompanying visual which features Mr. Worldwide do what he does best- party. This time, however, in a roaring 20s-type setting. Check out the clip below.
