Jay Z Has Already Announced His Second TV Project


Earlier this month, Jay Z announced a two-year film and television development deal with the Weinstein Company. He quickly announced his first project, a mini-series on Spike TV about Kalief Browder, the high school student who was held at Rikers Island for three years without trial for the theft of a backpack, and later killed himself upon his release. Now, he’s announced the second project, and it’s equally as powerful. This one will be for NBC, and it will be a series about Nicholas Irving, the first African-American to serve as a Special Operations Direct Action Sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion for the U.S. Military.

Production on the Britney Spears [unauthorized] Lifetime biopic is underway in Vancouver, and last night, they shot a major scene – the infamous umbrella meltdown. As TMZ points out, however, there were some pretty glaring inaccuracies in Lifetime’s version, as theirs shows Britney surrounded by paparazzi on a busy street as she lunges at all of them with her umbrella, then hops in her convertible to ride off.

Rihanna’s Mail Sometimes Comes To This Celeb’s House…And She Opens It!


Earlier this year, Chrissy Teigen and hubby John Legend moved into a beautiful new home in LA with their newborn daughter, Luna. This wasn’t just any home, however – it was the former pad of our favorite bad gal, Rihanna! While appearing on The Ellen Show yesterday, Chrissy was chatting about her new digs, and revealed a fun a little fact to Ellen – she sometimes gets Rihanna’s mail! And just like anyone (because shut up – you know you would too,) sometimes she takes a peek inside. After laughing about how Rih once got an $18 bill from Bugatti, Ellen informed her that it’s actually quite illegal to do such activities, to which Chrissy hilariously responded with:

“But it’s my house now! Can you not? Are we going to edit this? This is why I can never run for president.”

LOL! Check out the clip below.

(Video) People Are Not Happy With Nate Parker’s GMA Interview


Nate Parker’s Birth of A Nation is in theaters this Friday, and Nate is currently making his media rounds to promote it. The film is based on the true story of an enslaved preacher by the name of Nat Turner, who ends up creating a violent and historic slave rebellion. The film is heavy and necessary in today’s climate, but it is being overshadowed by a rape case from Nate’s past. In college, the actor was accused of raping a young woman with his friends, and though he was later acquitted, some feel that it wasn’t legit because the acquittal was only based on the fact they’d had consensual sex before the alleged incident. To add insult to injury, the woman committed suicide in 2012.
