If you ask me, it sounds like Beyonce is cooking up something new. Recently Queen Bey posted a video to her official Instagram account letting everyone know that the official movie trailer for the highly anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey is coming this Thursday. However, what has everyone talking is the music that plays in the background of the 15 second clip. With Beyonce posting the video, we can only hope that she’ll appear of the films soundtrack. If you listen clearly it sounds like a slowed down version of “Crazy In Love”, and that song is definitely fitting for the film.
Check out the clip below:
There have been several rumors soaring that Nick Cannon will be portraying Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic. Nick has been adding fuel to the fire by throwing out hints that he is basically a shoe in for the role. Lee Daniels is set to direct the Richard Pryor biopic, and Weinstein Company is fully backing the project. They have named Eddie Murphy, Michael B. Jordan, and Marlon Wayans as choices to play Richard Pryor, and it has been reported that Marlon Wayans impressed the head honchos of Weinstein Company during his reading for the role.
Even though Nick Cannon has altered his appearance and has insinuated that he already had the leading role, the movie is not in production and no roles have been officially announced. Fans first started to notice Nick’s transformation when he appeared at this year’s BET Awards sporting a freshly blown out Afro and beard. After the show, he posted the following picture on his Instagram with the caption, “Now you get it.”
Nominations came out on Thursday for the 29th Annual Imagen Awards.

The internet has been buzzing all day ever since the news of Zendaya Coleman being confirmed as the lead role for the new Aaliyah biopic, which is set to air on Lifetime. The 17 year old took to twitter to express how much Aaliyah has been an influence on her career and how she hopes to do the late R&B songstress justice. 106 & Park co host Keisha Chante was also another candidate for the role after she revealed through her social media that she had auditioned for the role. Prior to her job over at BET she has auditioned to play Aaliyah in other projects, but it looks like Zendaya will be taking it this time around.

Of all the potential ingredients for a good movie, I imagine a mix of Rhianna and Jim Parsons probably wouldn’t be in that pile. Or anywhere close to it really, given her much maligned performance in Battleship. Though one could argue that she had little to zero to work with it in terms of the movie’s script. But perhaps this new role will change the way we see Rihanna in films.
Home is based on the 2007 children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday. It marks the first time the film studio’s made an animated 3D movie with a female POC lead. It also marks only the second time for animation as a whole after Disney’s sweetly endearing The Princess and The Frog back in 2009. Yay for strong female characters!
So what exactly is Home about, check out the synopsis below and watch the trailer:
