Rihanna is first in line to portray the woman who, basically, invented twerking. Is this the role RiRi was born to play?
This is the story of a sexy dancer, singer and actress known for pushing the envelope and captivating people’s attention with her exotic flare. You might assume we’re talking about Rihanna, and rightfully so, but we’re actually referring to the legendary Josephine Baker, the sexy entertainer who assisted the French Resistance during World War II. And rumor has it, Rihanna will be playing her in a new movie!
There’s currently a play about Josephine being done in London — Josephine And I, written and performed by Cush Jumbo; and directed by Phyllida Lloyd, mother of British actress Emma Thompson – and buzz around London is that it’ll soon be adapted into a movie. Rihanna is reportedly producers’ first choice to play the iconic Ms. Baker. »

The Lonely Island released their second song this week, miseducating listeners everywhere about punctuation in a new track entitled "Semicolon."
The rap/comedy trio teamed up with Solange, sister of Beyonce who has grown into a hit artist in her own right with the song "Losing You" (although we'll never forget her star turn in "Bring It On: All or Nothing.") The song uses the style of "hashtag rap," popularized by Drake, in which they describe a noun before naming it at the end of each line, with references to Alf, Ralph Macchio and Steve Urkel.
The group's new album, "The Wack Album," comes out on June 11. »

Is she doing the whole "true to yourself" thing these days? Because what's nicer than that, besides maybe pie? Here's Hayden talking to Glamour magazine about a "second chance" career: “I don’t look at it as a second chance; I look at it as where I’m supposed to be. Even if I’m not perfect at it, even if my voice takes work, this is where my heart is. People used to ask me, ‘What kind of music do you like?’ I’d say, ‘Country.’ Then they’d go, ‘But you’re from New York. »
