Not content to simply ruin the mediums of music and television, Nicki Minaj has apparently decided to expand her tour of terror to film and is reportedly in final negotiations for a role aside Cameron Diaz in the upcoming “revenge comedy” The Other Woman.
The Hollywood Reporter has the full scoop:
Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kate Upton are on the roll call.
Nick Cassavetes is directing the comedy, which centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Minaj will play Diaz’s opinionated assistant — a woman on her third marriage — at a law firm.
The singer currently appears on American Idol as one of the judges and has voiced a character in Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Julie Yorn is producing the project, which was written by Melissa Stack and will shoot in late spring/early summer in New York.
LOL, I love that Nicki Minaj’s first role would be of an “opinionated” woman. Really stretch her abilities there, guys. The only thing that could make a Cameron Diaz movie worse is Nicki Minaj – and I’m saying that as someone who doesn’t really even mind Cameron Diaz. This is just a big no all around.

You all know Geri Halliwell is one of my favourite people on Twitter, and that’s mostly due to her incredible inability to filter her thoughts and now also because we get to see the weird dare-a-thon she and fellow Spice Girls Mel C and Mel B seem to have going on right now.
It all started a few weeks back when Mel C apparently dared Mel B to go outside and moon her neighbours, which of course she did:
Then Mel B dared Geri to go into a pub and start singing ‘Say You’ll Be There’ before walking out again. Well, that sounds like fun – and it was! Geri is a good sport, so she walked ’round her local and went for it. It was mostly full of old men who didn’t know who she was and didn’t care, which makes it all the more genius:
This must mean Mel C’s up next. God, I feel like it’s 1996 all over again. Except an alternate universe where I care more about the Spice Girls than I ever did in the real 1996. I’m into it!

Vince Vaughn got engaged to now-wife Kyla Weber in 2009 after a particularly sad (SAD FOR ME, OKAY?) break-up from Jennifer Aniston, and the pair had their first kid – a daughter named Locklyn Kyla Vaughn – in December 2010. Well, uniquely for Hollywood, the pair are still together and Vince and Kyla are now expecting their second baby – news he announced during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
I don’t really have any feelings about Vince Vaughn one way or another, so this news is shrug territory for me, but congrats to the happy couple, I guess? Also, I suddenly got the urge to watch Old School again.

Cory Monteith booked himself into rehab earlier this month for “substance addiction” issues, but they apparently take less than four weeks to overcome, because he’s out already and totally back to normal, guyz!! Cue the Glee Journey cover!
Anyway… Cory met up with real life girlfriend Lea Michele at LAX on Friday, passports in hand and presumably heading off on vacation to blow off some steam after the difficult past few weeks at a luxury rehab facility. Life’s so hard!
From E! Online:
On Friday morning, the real-life loves were seen at LAX, checking in for a departing flight. Lea, 26, was spotted carrying her passport, so it looks like the duo might have been going on a vacation together.
A witness tells E! News both Lea and Cory seemed “very happy, smiling the entire time.” When security asked Cory how he was doing, he said “good.” Both Lea and Cory were “friendly” to those around them, says a witness, and appeared in great moods and excited to get out of town.
In all seriousness, all the best to Cory, who always reminded me of this kid Chad I went to high school with who used to give me a ride home from school since I was one of the only people in my friend group who didn’t drive. Train’s ‘Drops of Jupiter’ was really popular that year, and I made him turn the volume up every time it came on. No shame (I’m totally ashamed).
Lea Michele still gets no love from me, though. But it’s the Lord’s day, so today, we’ll keep the peace. Heh.
sending out big love to everyone. thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! :)

Adele‘s been a busy lady this past year. Between giving birth to a son and exchanging cooking tips with Barbra Streisand, there’s not really been any time for music… until now! According to The Mirror, Adele started recording the follow-up to her massively successful sophomore album 21 on Monday and it’s due for release in the middle of 2014. Ohhhh, snap!
“Adele is currently in a recording studio in London and it’s in lockdown mode for the next few weeks.
“Four tracks are finished in terms of writing and she’s now laying down preliminary vocals with backing music and singers.
“The rest of the record will be done in LA. The feel is very much Adele going back to her roots, with some modern jazz and a couple of classic old songs.”
Hmm, I just hope it doesn’t suck like so many people’s albums do once they have kids. I’m not sure what’s up with that phenomenon but it happens SO often with female singers, I find.
Whatever, Adele’s a classic, so for now we’ll just assume it’s going to be amazing.

Not only was “most beautiful woman” Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Iron Man 3 premiere dress a crime against fashion, it was also a crime against basic human decency, which states that you should keep your asscheeks in check when in public and not have them hanging out. Funny thing is, she knew this and wore it anyway. But she wants you to know that she knew it, and she’s like, totally embarrassed!
From The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via DigitalSpy):
Paltrow said that the world could see “her ass hanging out” of the Antonio Berardi dress.
She admitted: “I had kind of a disaster. I was doing a show and I changed there and I went and I couldn’t wear underwear.
“Well, let’s just say everyone went scrambling for a razor… I went from being the most beautiful to the most humiliated. In one day.”
