It’s two Jennifers for the price of one. Jennifer Hudson and former Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Nettles duet on “You Will.” The empowering ballad was written by Diane Warren and will be the new official anthem for the OWN network.
“I was so touched when Diane Warren came to me and said she wrote a song with OWN in mind,” said Oprah Winfrey. “And then to have Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Nettles bring the song to life with their stunning collaboration… what a gift.”
Though very different genres, country and R&B artists have often time teamed up for some wicked collaborations in the past. This one is just the latest. Though Hudson steals the show a bit, their vocals complement each other. “You Will” will no doubt do well on adult contemporary stations due to its message and Oprah’s legions of loyal fans. Give it a listen below.
Incessant rumors have been abound for months now and it appears all the chatter was true. FOX officially confirmed they’re resurrecting the landmark sci-fi conspiracy drama, The X-Files.
Even more exciting is the fact original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are on board. Don’t expect a weekly dose though. The network is only bringing it back for a limited six-episode event series which begins production this Summer.
“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” producer Chris Carter states. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”
A couple of years ago, Jeremy Irons made controversial comments about same-sex marriage in an interview with Huffington Post. The 66-year-old actor sparked outrage, suggesting that legalizing gay marriage might lead to incest between fathers and sons. He implied that benefits of a change in the law might lead to fathers marrying sons in order to pass on property to avoid inheritance tax. Not surprisingly, Irons backtracked on his comments the days following.
“I think gay marriage is wonderful. I think any reason that holds anybody together in a relationship is great,” Jeremy said. “If it works as glue, if it makes you feel better, if it makes you feel you love your partner more, then great.”
His 29-year-old son, Max Irons opens up about his father’s comments in the latest issue of OUT magazine. Here’s what the younger Irons said.
“I remember thinking, You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re thinking through a problem out loud. I know my father, and his views are similar to mine: As long as you don’t harm anyone else, what you do and who you love are nobody’s business. He has since clarified as far as I understand, and truth be told, if you pushed him to explain what he was talking about, I don’t think he’d actually know.”
Max also talks about carving out his own career in Hollywood, his role models and his upcoming film, The Riot Club, for the publication. Check out more quotes below, along with photos snapped by Kai Z. Feng.
Hopefully, she fares better this time around than her nymphomaniac character, Shelley, in Asylum. Poor girl was tortured and mutilated beyond recognition during the second season of the popular horror anthology.
Chloe Sevigny is the latest to check into American Horror Story: Hotel. She joins previously announced cast members Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson. Sadly, this time around Jessica Lange won’t be participating. She formally announced her exit during the show’s recent PaleyFest panel.
Ryan Murphy broke the news via social media. “Very excited to announce that Chloe Sevigny returns to the AHS family as a series regular on “‘AHS: Hotel,’” he tweeted gleefully.
Excited to see Sevigny back in the franchise? Which other former AHS alum do you want to see return? Sound off below.
At 52-years-old, Tom Cruise is courting geriatric Expendables territory. Exactly how many more Mission Impossible films he has in his future, who knows? One thing I’m certain of though is that Paramount Pictures will keep churning them out since they perform decently well at the box office.
For the fifth installment, titled Mission Impossible: Rogue Mission, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is tracked down by the Syndicate, a highly trained organization of rogue assassins that kill on order. With the help of his colleagues, he plans to bring the Syndicate down by any means necessary.
Participating once again are Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. Alec Baldwin joins the franchise as the head of the CIA. Check out the first full trailer below. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation hits theaters on July 31.
The Emmys recently instituted a new rule change that dictates all hour-long shows will be considered dramas while half-hour shows fall as comedies. However, networks can petition the Academy to have a program be placed in an alternate category.
Orange Is The New Black snagged 12 nominations in the comedy categories last year, winning three. The hit Netflix series will now be officially classified as a drama after having their petition denied by a nine-member panel who watched all episodes of the current season.
It’ll be interesting to see if OITNB can snag any Emmy noms in the drama category. Even more interesting is who’ll fill the void in the comedy ones. Find out below which hour-long shows were approved by Academy.
Jason Statham may be done with Transporter films but that doesn’t mean more sequels aren’t on the way.
It’s hard to imagine the franchise without the sexy Statham but the equally alluring and ruggedly handsome Ed Skrein taking over the part makes the transition easier. Skrein is best known for playing Daario Naharis in the third season of Game of Thrones, before Michiel Huisman took over the role.
While box office receipts will ultimately decide if Skrein can carry the mantle, based on the trailer, he proves he can kick and punch like his predecessor. However with that said, I can’t help but feel The Transporter Refueled is just a poor man’s version of the action franchise. Watch the first trailer below and decide for yourself.
Whether you’re on the Crossfit bandwagon or find the fitness craze annoying, you can’t deny it does a body good. Have you seen those guys who compete in the competitions? Dang, they’re fine!!!
I first wrote about Gui Inacio several years ago. The 32-year-old model/actor was already a hottie then, but dude is even more shredded now that he’s been Crossfit training.
Check out his sizzling photoshoot snapped by Kemuel Valdes below demonstrating some exercises. He’s nude for the most part with only strategically placed kettlebells blocking his own ‘kettleballs.’ Enjoy!!!
