"Hello Claireese", the famous words from the movie Hannibal has new life breathed into it.  Laurence Fishburne is returning to primetime TV. The former CSI star has just been cast in a key recurring role on NBC’s upcoming serial killer thriller Hannibal.

The veteran actor (The Matrix) will play FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit leader Jack Crawford on the show. It’s role that’s been played by Dennis Farina (Manhunter), Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs) and Harvey Keitel (Red Dragon) in the film versions of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter novels. 
NBC’s series version is being masterminded by writer-producer Bryan Fuller. Fishburne will play FBI agent and boss.  His character will be introduced to Graham a psychiatrist with a rather dark secret (Mads Mikkelsen) who helps them solve crimes. 
“Laurence Fishburne is an iconic man who has been making his cinematic mark since Apocalypse Now and it’s a thrill not only to work with him but to see such a brilliant, sophisticated actor step into the shoes of Thomas Harris’ brilliant, sophisticated character,” said Fuller in a statement to EW.com. “I cannot imagine a better cast for Hannibal than the one we’ve assembled.”
The 13-episode first season of Hannibal is expected to premiere in midseason on NBC and, given the level of talent involved, we’re definitely looking forward to this one.


After two years of his wife death, Pastor Marvin Sapp is ready to put his family life on display. It seems that the reality show bug is still making its way around. Following in the footsteps of Grammy winning artists Mary Mary, now working on their 2nd season of their show.
Gospel singer/Pastor Marvin Sapp has reportedly landed at reality t.v. as well. The show entitled ‘Marvin Sapp: Single Dad’ will focus on Sapp being a single father to his three children (Marvin II, Mikaila and Madisson), as well as his maintaining his music career.

Sapp has been trying to adjust to being a single parent since 2010 when he lost his wife, MaLinda, to colon cancer. I hope everything goes well, its always nice to break up all the negativity around with a good wholesome t.v.


Such a cool commercial, Jay-Z inked a deal with Duracell appointing him as an investor, as well as being the face and spokesman for the Duracell Powermat, which will allow cell phone users to charge their phones wireless through “wireless power hot spots”.

Duracell Powermat’s commercial features HOV’s hit single “Run This Town.” The commercial features a New Yorker running up and down Manhattan with a holographic power meter that displays his phone power. 

Actor is featured picking up a white phone his phone’s battery life never goes below 90 percent. The New Yorker in the commercial never worry about his phone’s battery life. Later in the commercial, he just so happens to run into Hova himself at a nightclub, just as the Jay-Z receives a phone call from someone listed as “B”. Hmm, wonder who that could be?

In a recent press release, Jay-Z explained why he endorsed the Duracell Powermat.“I believe in the future of wireless energy and I believe that Duracell Powermat is the company to bring on the revolution,” said Jay. “I’m partnering with Duracell Powermat because they’re providing the solutions for the future.”

It's been 10 days since Katherine Jackson has been drugged seen or spoke. The Jackson family matriarch phoned into ABC news Wednesday to debunk reports that she had been held against her will by Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson and went on to defend her children's character.
"There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped…. I am here today to let everybody know that I am good and fine," the 82-year-old said. "My children would never do anything to me like that."
Jackson sidestepped the question of why she would leave three young children that were in her care, alone without a guardian and also of why she did not inform them that she was leaving.
Stating that she just felt like taking "a short vacation." Yea Katherine but most people who go on vacation take the kids they are raising with them and not have no communication in 10 days, so we question is this really true?
She did however explain why she did not talk to her worried grandchildren while she was gone: "One reason I didn't call is I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here."

When it comes to losing custody of her son Michael's three children, of whom she has been guardian since their father's death in 2009, she said she was "devastated."
"I am devastated that while I've been away my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home." Katherine was stripped of custody during an emergency hearing Wednesday and Tito Jackson's son, TJ, was awarded temporary guardianship.
Meanwhile, T.J's attorney announced that his client will be filing for permanent guardianship within the next 48 hours.  These poor kids, we hope there is a resolution soon, but lets break down how much she's about to lose if her guardianship does not get reinstated:
When Katherine was appointed guardian of Paris, Prince and Blanket, the Executors gave an allowance of $60,000 per month for the care of the children ... that's $720,000 a year.  Less than a year later the judge increased the 60k to 70k, and that would make the yearly take $840,000.

The judge is now in position to strip Katherine of guardianship altogether.  If that happens, the executors will almost certainly petition the court to funnel the money in TJ's direction, since he would be caring for the children.
Katherine never had control of the money for the kids, but she enjoys a lot of the perks the kids get, and that goes away if she loses guardianship.  She would still, of course, retain the allowance he personally receives from the Estate.
Short story ... these dirty kids... Randy, Jermaine, not Janet and Rebbie set out to turn Katherine against the estate so she could get more money during her lifetime -- money she could dole out to them -- but the plot may have actually screwed Katherine.

Paris Jackson ended the night by tweeting: 

To be continued.


As our heart and prayers pour out for Tameka Raymond and Kile father Ryan Glover at what must be a tough time for them right now. The funeral will be Friday for the 11-year-old boy who died after being run over by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier.
Kile Glover died over the weekend following the July 6 accident. He was the son of Atlanta television executive Ryan Glover and Tameka Foster, who was previously married to entertainer Usher Raymond.

Kile's funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Wieuca Road Baptist Church on Peachtree Road in Atlanta, a spokeswoman for the church told the AJC. Willie Watkins Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
Kile was unresponsive when pulled from the lake following the midafternoon crash, and he and his friend were flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. The teen was later released, but Kile succumbed to his injuries.

No further information was available Wednesday regarding additional services or a visitation for Kile, a spokeswoman for the funeral home said.


We couldn't think of anyone who is more fitting to release a Reggae album then Snoop Dog who obviously has glaucoma with how much weed he smokes this fits hand and hand with some of the Jamaican plant smoking culture.

Snoop Dogg is transforming his image at the ripe age of 40. The rapper/actor will is taking on the new persona of ‘Snoop Lion’. His new reggae band The Jungle have released “La La La” their new single on the album titled Reincarnated.
Snoop Dogg, now referring to himself as Snoop Lion, flips the script on fans with the release of his Rastafarian influenced cut, “La La La.” The track is the premiere single off of Snoop’s forthcoming album Reincarnated.

Major Lazer is credited as executive producer and the single features the former gangster rapper performing with a sort of Bob Marley accent and a very relaxed guitar in the backgroundSnoop Lion is set to perform for the first time at Toronto’s Caribana festival.

This is laughable...we suggest he sticks to rapping mon!

And its not even her birthday and he's about to lick the icing off.  Why don't these two get back together already, as they inch each week back to a full reconciliation.  It's a known fact that people who have experienced domestic violence usually forgive there abuser and in most case marry them. 
So here's what we've heard, While Ri Ri is vacationing in St. Tropez, conveniently Chris Brown is filming a video along the French Rivera with Ludacris and Swizz Beatz. 

the pair with a checkered past — who most recently worked together on RiRi’s remix of “Birthday Cake” — were overheard discussing Rihanna’s making an impromptu cameo in a video. 
Rihanna and Brown were seen together in a long intense conversation Sunday night in St. Tropez as guests on the Serene, a $300 million yacht owned by Russian vodka billionaire Yuri Shefler. 

Also aboard were Leonardo DiCaprio, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as members of the Saudi royal family and the night’s host, Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan.

“Rihanna had her own yacht moored nearby,” said a spy, “and Chris had been visiting her. But they came over to The Serene Sunday to join Leo with Swizz Beatz and Ludacris.”
 Snitches also added, “There were clearly sparks flying between Rihanna and Chris. They spent a lot of the night in deep conversation. It’s clear things are very good between them again. They seemed happy to be together.”
Another source added that the two were heard discussing a possible appearance by RiRi in Brown’s video, although others say that she hasn’t shot footage yet. Meanwhile, Brown’s playing a gig at Cannes club Gotha tonight. 
We all know he has a so called girlfriend Karue...? let's just call her Klue-less who is also in France not invited to any of the cool parties. And its obvious she doesn't hold a candle to Rihanna, not to mention plays her position as the "mute jump off". Pictured above looking cray cray.

BATMAN COMES TO TOWN...Actor Christian Bale Visit Dark Knight Rises Massacre Victims

The real Batman, meaning the actor Chrisitan Bale does something amazing.  Victims of Friday's shooting at a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" received a visit from Batman himself on Tuesday, as Christian Bale reportedly stopped by Aurora, Colo.

Sexy "Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers," a representative for the studio told the Denver Post.
The actor, who has portrayed Batman in all three of director Christopher Nolan's films on the subject, had previously released a statement of condolences.
"Words cannot express the horror that I feel,” he said Saturday. “I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”

What a class act, although Bale only plays the character Batman he showed he really is a super hero. We love his real humanity for others and for that we salute your sexy ass.

L.A. County Sheriff's Deputies went to the Jackson family home in Calabasas and took a battery report ... after family members reported a disturbance.

Steve Whitmore tells TMZ ... Lost Hills deputies from the Sheriff's Dept. showed up this afternoon at the compound and someone inside accused someone else present of a physical assault.  
Deputies took a report but no arrests were made.  Janet Jackson and Jermaine Jackson were  in a heated exchange pictured above, at the Jackson family home-- shortly after Sheriff's deputies responded to an alleged battery there on Monday afternoon

Every since Michael Jackson passed away, this family has been divided over money, let us bring you up to speed.  Michael Jackson's family is involved in a messy dispute with matriarch Katherine's advisers, and tension reached a new level overnight when her nephew reported her missing.

However, her son, Jermaine, tweeted after the initial panic:
"I want to reassure everyone (inc all sudden medical experts) that Mother is fine but is resting up in AZ on the orders of a doctor, not us"
He subsequently added:
"This is our mother and her health is paramount. We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor's advice. Period."

The latest development comes after a letter signed by four of the late pop star's siblings -- Jermaine, Janet, Rebbie, Randy and Tito -- was made public Wednesday. It accused Michael's estate executors John Branca and John McClain of conspiracy and abusing their 82-year-old mother.

CNN is reported that Katherine Jackson's lawyer, Sandra Ribera, had said that her client left her California home on July 15, to fly to Albuquerque to attend a Jackson brothers concert. She was traveling with Rebbie.

Ribera told CNN that when Michael's 14-year-old daughter, Paris, called to talk to Katherine over the past several days, she was told each time she could not speak to her.

The sheriff's department thinks that the family is calling the cops as a plot in there case to change the Will.  

As you know ... MJ's brothers and sisters want Michael's will invalidated so they can get a piece of the pie.  But there's a BIG problem.  If the will is invalidated, the prior will gets resurrected, and under that document Michael's siblings are completely cut out.

Sheriff's sources grouse that their budget has been severely cut which makes bogus claims sting even more than usual.  They believe the end game here is money. 

According to published reports, Janet Jackson faced off with her niece, Paris Jackson, who was spilling family secrets to the world via social networking website Twitter.com. A surveillance video shows Jackson repeatedly attempting to snatch Paris’s cell phone out of her hand. Janet apparently attempted to discipline the impulsive 14-year-old, who thinks she’s grown, but Paris refused to hand her phone over to Janet.

At some point Paris tweeted “Gotta love fam.”

Yes the mama of "Dem Babies" the one and only Mariah Carey is the newest judge in the Idol family, and we are super excited about this welcoming change. 

It's official: Mariah Carey will be joining American Idol next season as a new judge, E! Online is reporting. The deal, as was previously reported, is worth $17 million - $2 million more than the reported $15 million than Britney Spears was offered for her position as a judge on The X-Factor. Get it, girl. 
In a statement to reporters via telephone, Carey commented, "I am so excited to be joining Idol. I wish I could have been there myself to tell you. It all kind of just happened real quickly. I can't wait to get started in a couple months…I will see you in January!" Additionally, Fox president Kevin Reilly stated that Carey is the "biggest recording artist" that "any of these shows" have ever had. Sorry, J.Lo.
  Still no word on who else will be joining the series next season - as both Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left, there's still one open judge's chair - or on whether or not longtime judge Randy Jackson will opt to stay as well.
