Even if Rihanna is interested in pursuing waves in Hollywood but she is not willing to make any films with one particular director, Tyler Perry.  According to sources, Tyler Perry has been asking RiRi to do a romantic comedy y movie but it seems that the singer is not responding.  This is because Rihanna has been warned by Whitney Houston.  The source said:

“Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea. Rihanna has pointedly avoided meeting with him!”

The source further added:

“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones. Rihanna so respected Whitney because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard. She’s ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romantic comedy because she thinks she works better in action roles, playing the tough girl.”

Chaka Khan Chaka Khan

It all started when Chaka Khan was interviewed during the 7th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood event.  A reporter from Hollywood Today told her that she is “flawless like Beyonce’s song.”  After making that remark, Chaka rolled her eyes then started to mumble something.  It’s not really clear what Chaka was mumbling but some people assumed that she called Beyonce a “b*tch.”

It quickly went viral which prompted Chaka Khan to apologize to Bey on Twitter.  She told Beyonce that she was the target of a slow news day:  She tweeted:

Beyonce Beyonce

“@Beyonce Sorry you had to be the target of a slow news day.  You know I have nothing but LOVE for you! Keep handling your business!!”

However, after Chaka made the apology, she quickly deleted it.  That is why, people are now wondering if she is really sincere in making her public apology.  Even though she revealed that she was not throwing any shade on Beyonce.

 

Why did Chaka delete the tweet?

Mara Wilson, the star of “Matilda” admits that leaving Hollywood was a mutual decision.  Wilson, who is now 26 years old, admits:

“It was sort of a slow realization,I think it was the realization that I didn’t have to do it anymore. It felt like a constant in my life for a very long time … but I was never really that crazy about it after ‘Matilda,’ I would say.”

She further added:

“After that, I wasn’t as passionate about it anymore.  And people grow out of things. That’s something people don’t really understand.”

Wilson started her acting career back in 1993 in the movie “Mrs. Doubtfire.”  Afterwards, she did a lot of different movies such as “Melrose Place,”"Matilda,”  ”Miracle On 34th Street” as well as “Batman Beyond.” When she became a teenager, she quit from acting.  Wilson revealed:

“I was 13 and I was awkward, and I was gawky, and I was not a very cute kid anymore.  So, Hollywood didn’t really want me at that point, and I was kind of over it, too. So, after a while, it feels like a mutual breakup. That’s the way that I’d describe it.”

Did Wilson make the right decision?

“When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I watched ‘Roman Holiday’ when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I’d ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her.  I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in ‘To Catch a Thief,’ I thought, ‘That’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.’”

Who will be this lucky girl?

Ciara-for-GQ-2013

Ciara proves to the world that she still got it.  She recently shows off her sexy body on the latest issue of GQ Magazine.  Ciara was wearing a major underboob while photographers Gomillion & Leupold take the shots.  Inside the magazine, she announced her latest track entitled, “Overdose.”  She also provided some suggestions on how boys should approach a girl while they are on the dance floor.

What can she say about her latest hit single, “Body Party”?  Ciara said:

“It’s one of those songs that happened fast, because it has such a sweet vibe. I can’t even lie, when we were mixing it, I was listening to it over and over like a fan. I don’t like using obvious samples, but it felt right—I couldn’t ignore the track the way [producer] Mike WiLL flipped the sample of ‘My Boo.’ It’s one of those songs a girl can sing to her man and where guys don’t have to feel too cool to slow dance with your girl.”

What are her comments in being named as one of the best dancers in Hollywood?  She replied:

“Go with the flow; don’t overthink it. If you’re a head-nod kind of guy, nod your head. If you’re a guy who likes to coast out and rock or sway, just do that. Whatever you do, don’t get out there and try do something you haven’t practiced. Do what shows your style and vibe—let me catch that without you trying to show me anything. I’m kind of okay to just chill. Keep it simple and let the girl guide you a little bit. If you can do that, I think you’ll be alright.”

Jennifer-Hudson

Jennifer Hudson was accompanied by her fiancé David Otunga during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.  There were rumors that the two have already tied the knot since Otunga was seen wearing a wedding band.  During Hudson’s interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, she admitted that she purchased a ring for Otunga and gave it to him during his birthday.  Hudson wants his fiancé to have his own engagement ring too.

Have they secretly married?  Hudson said:

“No, no. That’s a secret I don’t know nothing about. But the funny thing is, people are like, ‘When are you getting married?’ Then the next day, ‘You are married.’ And then, ‘How’s your husband?’ Y’all done married us off anyway so…”

Why was David wearing the ring during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony?  She said:

“David is a little different. Let me explain. He wanted to have an engagement ring, too. So, for his birthday or something, I don’t remember, I got him a ring for his birthday gift.  David is the more sentimental one. Like he remembers every date, down to the time. ‘This is exactly such and such, such and such when we did…’ Valentine’s Day, you can’t even get through the house because he’s got all type of decorations, so he wanted to have his own ring. [He was like,] ‘Everyone knows you’re taken but no one knows I’m taken,’ and so that’s where his ring came from.”

Aren’t they a sweet couple?

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson started her career in American Idol and now she is already included in the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.  Yesterday, she received her own star.  Hudson was wearing a white dress and accompanied by her husband, sister and son.  She looked fabulous on her new pixie cut.  She said:

“I knew I would get emotional and I’m sure my mom is in heaven like, ‘Jenny, stop crying!’ But now is the time to cry, Mama. It is. I don’t know where to start because this is an amazing honor as we all know and I did not see it coming. I’m so honored to be here with so many that I love and I feel as though we’re all a family. Even all of you guys. It’s about — I love you, too! It’s one thing to be in this type of position but it doesn’t mean anything if you can’t make a difference in the world to someone. I always say that anytime we go out. We make sure we treat everyone like family so with that being said, I’m so honored that all of my family is here with me today.”

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson

“[This star] means everything. It inspires me to just wanna continue to say, ‘Wow.’ My new goal — I’ve been blessed to achieve everything I’ve dreamt about — so my new goal is like, okay, I want to have longevity. I want to be a staple in Hollywood, and this is a sign that I can be. It’s like, ‘Wow!’ It makes me want to dream up bigger dreams.”

What can she say about reality stars who will not be able to enjoy the Walk of Fame?  She replied:

“I hope winning an Oscar cancels that out.”

“I’m a firm believer that if you keep at it, it has no choice but to give in. When I was eliminated from a reality show I said, ‘You know what? That’s okay because I’m walking away with a prize and that’s my talent.’ My gift and whatever it is I want, as long as I keep at it and work for it it will have no choice but to give in and here I am.”

Jennifer Hudson is the evidence that dreams really do come true.

Isn’t it inspiring?

Nia Long Nia Long

Nia Long is currently busy with her multiple shows such as Love Jones, House of Lies and Are We There Yet?  Despite the fact that Nia is currently successful with her career right now but she is still facing some challenges in Hollywood.  During her recent interview, the 43-year-old actress revealed about her life as a black actress in Hollywood.  She said:

“It’s tough, because it’s Hollywood. It’s tough, because we’re women. It’s tough, because we’re not in our 20s. It’s  tough no matter how you look at it. I’m not one of these people who walks around and goes ‘Oh my God, it’s soo hard being a black actress,’ but this business is hard. It’s hard behind the scenes, in front of the scenes; black, white, whatever it is, it is an industry that there’s a quick turnover. There’s always someone younger, more talented, and more beautiful.”

Nia Long Nia Long

Nia further added:

“But you just try to create a career that has balance. So that you keep yourself relevant, preserve your youth and your beauty, so that you have other things outside of the business that define you and your not waiting for someone to pick you because that will make you crazy.”

Nia is also one of the stars of the movie Best Man Holiday.
