If you love all things entertainment, you’ll love hearing about everything going on this week in the biz. Here’s the scoop:
- The Cannes film festival is in full swing and this week’s celebrity appearances included Kim Kardashian with Kanye West (now being dubbed “Kimye,” how original) and fan favorite Kristen Stewart. Reportedly, Kim blatantly snubbed ex-bff Paris Hilton while Kanye playfully joked about upcoming nuptials. Meanwhile, Kristen left her Twilight role far behind with a racy, topless performance in On The Road, based on the iconic Jack Kerouac novel.
- Dancing With the Stars came to a dramatic end with Green Bay Packer Donald Driver winning the coveted mirrorball trophy in what is being called “the most competitive season ever!” The wide receiver is the third football star to take home the trophy. Makes me think these guys must hone their mad skills in the end zone.
- New mom Jessica Simpson announced that she and Eric Johnson will wed on 12/12/12. She hopes to lose all of the baby weight in six months. One source even claims, “Jessica would rather be an unwed mother than a fat bride.” Yikes.
- Panem fans mark your calendars: The Hunger Games will make its home-entertainment debut on August 18 with a two-disc set DVD, two-disc set Blu-ray, video on demand and digital download with — count ‘em — THREE hours of bonus materials. Now to just figure out how to pass the summer without Katniss and Peeta…
- Justin Timberlake announced that he is ready to make sweet, sweet music for fiancee Jessica Biel on the big screen. JT has been tapped to compose and serve as the music supervisor for the soundtrack to Biel’s newest project, The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. This will be the first time he’ll be Bringing Sexy Back since his 2009 collaboration with Timbaland.
- The highly anticipated summer blockbuster Battleship opened to dismal numbers at the box office. It appears that nothing can take down The Avengers, not even Alexander Skarsgard and Rihanna.
- Finally, I leave you with this glimmer of hope: Paul Fusco, creator of 80′s television star ALF, is pitching a big screen comeback to studio executives. That’s right, folks. We just may get to laugh along with the furry alien from Melmac one more time.
