nicole-scherzinger-cats

Before you get too excited, Nicole Scherzinger isn’t reuniting with the Pussycat Dolls. Although, it wouldn’t surprise me if she did in the future, if her new solo album flops like her previous attempt. Rather, the 36-year-old singer is joining the West End revival production of Cats. She’ll play “Glamour Cat” Grizabella for a 12-week run starting in December at London’s Palladium.

“I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited,” Nicole shared in a statement. “To have the opportunity to work with Andrew [Lloyd Webber], Trevor, and Gillian is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Andrew’s extraordinary music and was lucky enough, a couple of years ago, to record Cats’ beautiful song ‘Memory.’ Andrew’s score is breathtaking and I am truly honored to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals.”

This isn’t the first time Scherzinger has performed songs from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. She’s previously sang songs from Phantom Of The Opera and Evita for various music specials. Check out the performances below.

‘Her hair is Harlowe gold, Her lips sweet surprise.’ Sounds like it’s describing Kylie Minogue, doesn’t it? No wonder the Aussie pop superstar chose to cover “Bette Davis Eyes.”

Tackling Kim Carnes’ 1981 classic is a smart choice by the 46-year-old singer. It fits her wheelhouse perfectly. Minogue’s synth-pop rendition is for BBC Radio 2′s Sounds Of The ’80s. Give it a listen below. It’s a must for all of Kylie’s lovers.

If you mashed up all the season of American Horror Story- Murder House, Asylum, Coven and Freak Show, it could easily sum up O.J. Simpson’s life during the 90s. FX just announced an American Horror Story companion series focusing on the media circus that was the O.J. Simpson trial.

Titled American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the 10-episode series will be based on Jeffrey Toobin‘s book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. It will give the perspective from the lawyers on both sides of the trial and race relations during that time.

“This is an exciting project for me, as I’ve been looking for the right property which could serve as an extension of the American Horror Story brand I love so much. The O.J. case was as tragic as it was fascinating– it seemed like everyone had a stake in the outcome. It was really the beginning of the modern tabloid age,” Ryan said in a statement.

Is Ed Sheeran campaigning to be on the next season of Dancing With The Stars or Strictly Come Dancing? It would appear so based on his new music video for “Thinking Out Loud.” The 23-year-old singer shows off his dance moves in a very sensual dance with a young lady in a dimly-lit ballroom. Dude can surprisingly shake his hips and execute lifts. Who knew?

“Thinking Out Loud” is the third cut off his sophomore album, x. While he channeled Justin Timberlake on “Sing,” Sheeran serves some John Mayer realness on the ballad which is bound to become a future wedding song. I wouldn’t be surprised if couples also mimic the choreography. Or at least attempt to. Check out the romantically cute clip below.

Alfonso Ribeiro capped off Dancing With The Stars last night with the dance everyone has been anticipating since his involvement with Season 19 was announced. The 43-year-old actor chose his years on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has his most memorable. Though he looks fondly on his experience now, it wasn’t always the case. For years after the show ended, he reveals casting directors wouldn’t call him for being so associated with his character, Carlton Banks.

Ribeiro revisited Carlton this week, more specifically his signature dance on the hit NBC sitcom. In a Broadway Jazz routine choreographed by Witney Carson, Alfonso shined reliving his glory days. Witney, on her part, does a pretty mean Carlton herself. Watch the dance below which earned them a perfect score of 40. Naturally, the dance was set to the tune of “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones.

On a side note, is anyone else bummed that Betsey Johnson was eliminated last night? Though she was never going to win, she always put a smile on my face with her charming routines. I can’t believe the woman is in her 70s. Girl looks good and don’t get me started with her flexibility.

Stephen Collins is best known for playing the patriarch of the Camden family on the long-running drama 7th Heaven. The 67-year-old actor is in hot water after a recording of him admitting to child molestation surfaced. According to EW.com, Collins has been fired from Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming sequel, Ted 2.

On the tape, Collins is heard confessing about an 11-year-old New York girl, specifically admitting to placing her hand on his penis and then exposing himself to her on other occasions. His estranged wife, Faye Grant, reportedly taped the admission during a therapy session back in 2012. In California, it is legal to record a conversation if the purpose is to gather evidence of a felony.

The New York Police Department is currently investigating Collins for alleged “inappropriate sexual contact” with at least three children. No charges have been filed yet. Listen to the taped conversation below.
