With her meteoric rise and untimely death, the tragic life of Amy Winehouse is ripe for a biopic. After watching the moving documentary, Amy, (love the movie) about the “Rehab” singer, I’m intrigued to see how filmmakers will sensationalize the already sensational life of the 27 Club member.

Director Kirsten Sheridan will direct the yet-untitled project off a script she wrote. She’s best known for earning an Oscar nomination for the semi-autobiographical film In America which she co-wrote with her father and sister. The 39-year-old Irish screenwriter-director recently said the following about the upcoming film.

“Amy’s music is felt so deeply by the audience because it was deeply personal. Her vulnerability was her strength. She was called many things — a diva, a lost soul preyed upon by tabloids, a tortured genius; our aim is an innovative, emotional and life-affirming approach as we go through the looking glass into her life and art.” – Kirsten Sheridan

Rihanna was set to headline the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but it appears that’s not the case anymore. The lingerie brand announced that Ellie Goulding is in and RiRi is out. The “On My Mind” singer will join previously announced performers The Weeknd and Selena Gomez.

People‘s sources reveal Rihanna canceled her appearance to finish up her album. Ummmm, I’m sorry but that sounds like major BS. So far, the “Bitch Better Have My Money” singer’s forthcoming eighth studio album has been a hot mess. That’s what you get when you enlist Kanye West to executive produce your project.

If that’s the true reason why Rihanna canceled, it’s just rude. The annual extravaganza tapes in New York next week. Producers must’ve been frantic trying to find a replacement. Thankfully they did. Goulding will slay it. Too bad producers didn’t have more time. They probably would’ve incorporated a bondage theme if Ellie sang her Fifty Shades of Grey track, “Love Me Like You Do.”

What do you think of this last minute change? Weigh in below.


It’s Morphin’ Time!!! At least for Becky G. née Gomez it is. On the heels of her Empire guest arc, the 18-year-old has been cast as the Yellow Ranger for the upcoming Power Rangers movie.

With her recording career kinda stalling, it’s wise for Becky G to explore other avenues in the entertainment industry. Still though, I have hope she’ll score a hit song soon.

The Dean Israelite-directed film begins production early 2016 and set to attack theaters in 2017. Check below to see the actors playing the other Power Rangers. The red one is kinda cute 😉
