Milli Vanilli Biopic Producers Hope End of Ratner Deal Could Revive Long-Gestating Project

Milli Vanilli Biopic Producers Hope End of Ratner Deal Could Revive Long-Gestating Project
The history of the Untitled Millie Vanilli movie has been almost as much of a byzantine roller coaster ride as the duo’s infamous career. The latest roadblock for the biopic, which dates back to a 2007 screenplay by fan Jeff Nathanson, who wanted to direct the film himself, was the demise of Brett Ratner’s $450 million co-financing deal with Warner Bros. for his RatPac Entertainment, which the studio officially announced it wouldn’t renew on April 10. The company was responsible for some of the studio’s biggest hits last year, including “Wonder Woman,” “It,” “Dunkirk” and “The Lego Batman Movie.”

Ratner, the mercurial filmmaker, was set to take the director’s chair for the proposed $20-30 million production, helming his first project since 2014’s “Hercules.” Shooting was planned for both Berlin and Los Angeles, but once Ratner became the subject of sexual harassment accusations late last year, the momentum stopped.

People Are Mad Kendall Jenner Appeared in a Music Video With Chris Brown

Another day, another Kendall Jenner controversy. The 22-year-old model is facing backlash after appearing alongside Chris Brown — who has a history of abusing women — in Lil' Dicky's music video for “Freaky Friday” — a song that also features vocals from the "Questions" crooner. "Girl please don’t support an abuser," one user wrote on Twitter. Another chimed in with, "Please tell me you’re not supporting Chris Brown." A third agreed, adding, "How is anyone still working with Chris Brown? Wtf?" Chris turned himself in after physically assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009 when they left the Clive Davis Grammy party. The singer's ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran also accused him of being abusive, and she was granted a restraining order after he allegedly punched her in the stomach and threatened to shoot her. This is hardly the first time Kenny got dragged over participating in controversial campaigns. Last year, the reality star was

Lorde and Jack Antonoff Step Out in New Zealand — But ‘Really Are Just Friends,’ Says Source
Are they or aren’t they?

Since news broke of Jack Antonoff‘s split from Lena Dunham in January, tabloid whispers have linked the Bleachers frontman to his friend Lorde (aka Ella Yelich-o’Connor). Most recently, the musicians were photographed looking cozy in her native Auckland, New Zealand, where Antonoff’s band opened for Paramore.

But a source tells People, “There’s nothing going on between Ella and Jack,” adding: “There’s not any type of romantic situation. They’re just friends — they really are just friends.”

Jennifer Hudson to play Aretha Franklin in new biopic

Deadline is reporting that Jennifer Hudson is set to take on the role of Aretha Franklin for a new biopic about the life of the Queen of Soul.

The news was announced at a pre-Grammys party this past weekend by Clive Davis, who has enjoyed a long working relationship with Franklin, whose classics include hits such as ‘Think’ and ‘Respect’. Apparently, Franklin hand-picked Hudson, a Grammy and Academy Award winner, for the role.

According to the outlet, the film will be financed by MGM, with Scott Bernstein (Straight Outta Compton) producing alongside Harvey Mason Jr., a music producer who has worked with Franklin, as well as producing music for Dreamgirls, which saw Hudson receiving an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Lorde Thanks Fans for ‘Believing in Female Musicians’ in Full-Page New Zealand Ad

Lorde Thanks Fans for ‘Believing in Female Musicians’ in Full-Page New Zealand Ad
After a week that saw her become one of the most-talked about Grammy nominees ever to not perform on the show, Lorde thanked fans in a hand-written full-page ad that appeared in The New Zealand Herald.

As Variety reported on Saturday, Lorde was the only Album of the Year nominee not to be offered a solo performance during the show. While fellow nominees Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and winner Bruno Mars all performed, and Jay-z is said to have declined, sources say Lorde was offered a brief spot in the Tom Petty memorial tribute. She declined — and in the process inadvertently became a symbol for the music industry’s under-representation of female artists and executives.

“[Sunday] night I saw a lot of crazy & wonderful things,” she wrote. “I just wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for loving & embracing ‘Melodrama’ the way you did. My nomination belongs to you. Thank you, also

But despite maintaining their quiet relationship for nearly five years — the Dear Dictator actress, 39, and the Baby Driver star, 50, were first seen together in the Hamptons in 2013, a year after Holmes split from Tom Cruise following six years of marriage — Foxx hasn’t spent much time with Holmes’s 11-year-old daughter, Suri, a source says in the new issue of People.

How the Grammys Failed Women and the #MeToo Movement This Year

Image Source: Getty / Christopher Polk Everywhere you looked at the Grammys on Sunday night, there were white roses. Artists, both male and female, proudly wore the flower on the red carpet to show support for the Time's Up movement, which was created ahead of the Golden Globes in an effort to combat workplace sexual harassment and assault across industries for women. As nice as it was to see musicians, actors, and even Grammys host himself James Corden incorporating white roses into their ensembles, the gesture felt hollow by the end of the night. All the flowers in the world don't mean anything if the music industry isn't actually honoring women for their hard work and talent, or at the very least, speaking out about #MeToo and the tidal wave of sexual assault and harassment claims that have dominated the national conversation over the past few months. As the three-and-a-half-hour award show wore on,
