Kendrick Lamar almost recorded a song with Prince.

The 30-year-old rapper had talked about collaborating with the ‘Purple Rain’ singer after they performed together unexpectedly when he went to visit the late star’s Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota, but was devastated that they never got to do the track before Prince died of an accidental drug overdose in April 2016.

He said: “It’s one of those things where, it’s so much going on in the moment, man. I did a show that day with him, I didn’t even know I was coming out on stage. The studio was next door where I just played him the song. We were running back and forth. I totally forgot about the song after that.”

Kendrick puts a lot of thought into who he collaborates with because he likes to make sure the chemistry is natural and he’s free to express himself.

But he has admitted there wasn’t too much thinking involved when Taylor Swift sent him over her song ‘Bad Blood’ and asked him to join her for some vocals.

Speaking on the ‘Howard Stern Show’, he explained: “we talk about is how does the music sound? I’m a hip-hop artist, so how far in the pop world is the sound? So the first thing is, let’s hear the music, ’cause the music is gonna dictate the concept on where can we take this. With this particular record, it was me just vibing and catching her lyrics. I didn’t want to get into her head too crazy. I just wanted to have my own inspiration and see where it took it… Fortunately, the vibe was right and it didn’t take too many takes, and we was really locked in on the chemistry and we really felt what was going on when I was in the booth.”

Lindsay Lohan Acting Again?

Lindsay Lohan is ready to return to her movie career.

The 31-year-old actress – who started out as a model at the age of just three – hasn’t made a film since 2013’s ‘The Canyons’ and has been living in London and with Syrian refugees while she got her life back on track following a turbulent period of numerous stints in rehab and run-ins with the law.

However, she’s now back in New York for the holiday period and reportedly plans to use her break to also take meetings about potential new projects.

Insiders told The Blast that acting has always been the ‘Mean Girls’ star’s “true passion” and she feels the life experiences she’s gained over the last few years can only help refine her talents.

Lindsay – who appeared in West End stage show ‘Speed-the-Plow’ in 2014 and has shot scenes for British comedy series ‘Sick Note’ which are due to air soon – isn’t looking for a particular genre of movie and is willing to take her time with her comeback in order to attach herself to the “right” script and project.

The ‘Parent Trap’ star previously admitted she has “found peace” since leaving the US. She said: “Yeah, I miss Hollywood. “[But] I think there’s a lot of noise that we deal with, so I found a kind of peace in life working with children and helping other people that really interest me. “I think it’s important for us to see that all of this stuff is fun, but you have to take time for you.”

Earlier this year, Lindsay visited Syrian refugees fleeing from the war-torn country to Turkey and revealed her hopes that her visit would help to raise awareness of those being displaced by the unrest in the country.

She admitted: “I cried right away, right off the bat. These kids… they’re scared of bombs going off every second. “But you just see that they have this light inside of them and seeing a new face in somebody willing to teach them, sit with them, and bringing attention to other people coming to do that is really important. “I mean, the stories of some of these women, and this young girl Bana [Alabed, a refugee she met in Turkey], who’s the first child who has a voice in what’s going on, it’s incredible.”

Did Paloma Faith Get Married in Secret?

Paloma Faith has reportedly got married in secret.

The 36-year-old singer has been dating her French beau, Leyman Lahcine, for four years, and the couple welcomed their first child into the world in December last year.

But it is believed the pair have decided to take their romance to the next step and have tied the knot in what was “a very intimate and beautiful ceremony” in London, England, where the duo were surrounded by close friends and family.

Speaking about the marital ceremony to The Sun Online, a source said: “It’s something Paloma wants to keep private. It was a very intimate and beautiful ceremony in London, with just close friends and family “But some of her friends in the industry have recently been talking about Paloma quietly getting married.”

The ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ hitmaker also sparked rumours she was married after being spotted at The Royal Variety Performance earlier this year, which was rumoured to be wearing a diamond ring on her the ring finger on her left hand.
And it is believed Paloma is keen to keep her love life a secret because she doesn’t want people to “know her news”, although she is “extremely happy” with how life is panning out for her.

The insider added: “Paloma isn’t keen for people to know her news but she is extremely happy.” And Paloma has previously addressed Leyman as her “husband”. Speaking previously about her relationship, she said: “My mum said if you feel trapped, you’re in the wrong relationship but if you feel freer than when you’re single, you’ve met the right person. “I’m in that place now. Leyman is my husband.”

However, Paloma – who was previously married to chef Rian Haynes for four years before they split in 2009 – believes starting a family with her beau is “more bonding” than exchanging wedding vows. The ‘ I Just Can’t Rely On You’ vocalist said: “I feel the fact we’ve got a child together is way more bonding than a piece of paper. “When I’m like 80, I think I want to get married and try heroin.” Paloma has yet to confirm the news.

Kanye Wants to Rival Spotify Now

Kanye West is reportedly trying to set up his own music streaming service.

The outspoken rap star – who was once allied to Jay Z’s Tidal service – has submitted a trademark application for a similar enterprise, which is to be known as Yeezy Sound.

According to the application, the trademark is for the purposes of “streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content over the internet”.

At the moment, though, it remains unclear whether Kanye intends to use the platform for his own content, or whether – like Jay – he will collaborate with a number of other artists, DailyMail.com reports.

Kanye, 40, and Jay fell out with each other in 2016, with the ‘Famous’ rapper even criticising his former mentor during one of his on-stage performances.

Kanye – who previously claimed he was owed a $3.5 million in unpaid advances and bonuses by Tidal – said: “Even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I’ve been sitting here to give ya’ll the truth!

“Jay Z, call me , bro! You still ain’t calling me. Jay Z, call me … Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man!”

The award-winning rapper also cancelled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo tour in 2016 due to stress and exhaustion.

But an insider recently said that Kanye – who is married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian West – is now the “best he’s ever been”.

The source shared: “There haven’t been any manic outbursts. You’re going to see a calm Kanye who is taking it day by day.

“Living with a mental illness is something that he will always have to be aware of, and spend time working on, but he’s doing it. And he and Kim are stronger than ever.”

Woah! Is Amr Diab Getting Married to Dina el-Sherbini?

A few things in life are certain. Death, iOS updates, Amr Diab and Dina El-Sherbini are together. Okay wait, the latter may not be official but recent social media posts seem to basically prove that the celebrity couple are, indeed, together.

This game of speculations, OTPs and shipping started a while ago, and Diab releasing a song that may in fact was about El-Sherbini did not help the fans. But we’re in luck, because we don’t just have one, nor two but THREE posts that further strengthens our Amr-is-definitely-with-Dina theories. Check them out below.

Director Tarek Alarian posted an Instagram picture of himself with a few friends, and the not-official cute couple. His caption said nothing but “Stay tuned.” What does that mean? Are they finally announcing that they’re together? Are Amr and Dina getting married? So many questions!


Socialites Mostafa Hosny and Heba Serag Eldin were spotted with Amr and Dina at The Lemon Tree & Co. They could easily be friends, but we’re not buying that whatsoever!

Last but not least, Hosny posted a video of Diab looking surprised at The Lemon Tree & Co with a birthday cake. The caption for the post said, “Best Surprise From Dina El-sherbiny.” If this doesn’t prove that Amr and Dina are together, we don’t know what will. Who would go through all that trouble to make sure they surprise someone unless they were romantically involved?

WE SAID THIS: Amr and Dina are together, we rest our case. For real though, we really do hope they are!

Is Adele the New Nancy in the “Oliver!” Remake?

Follow > , , , ,

Adele has reportedly held talks over playing Nancy in a new film of the musical Oliver!.

The Grammy Award-winning star could be set to make the switch to Hollywood, with movie bosses having approached Adele about playing one of the central characters from Charles Dickens’ iconic novel, which was turned into a film in 1968.

A source close to the singer, who has four-year-old son Angelo with her husband Simon Konecki, told The Sun newspaper: “It would be a major part for her and she’s seriously considering it.

“She’s talked about Angelo being her number one priority and she sees this as a role that he could appreciate too. It would be a new challenge for her but one she would definitely be up for.”

Adele has never before appeared in a movie, but the chances of her making the switch into the film business are thought to have increased after hinting in June she no longer wished to tour.

The 29-year-old star was forced to cancel her planned shows at Wembley Stadium on July 1 and July 2 after damaging her vocal cords.

And Adele revealed the news to her fans in an emotional social media post.

At the time, she wrote: “To say I’m heartbroken would be a complete understatement. I’m already maxed out on steroids and aids for my voice.

“I’ve considered doing Saturday night’s show but it’s highly unlikely I’d even make it through the set and I simply can’t crumble in front of you all and walk out on you all in that way.

“I’m so desperate to do them that I’ve even considered miming, just to be in front of you and be with you. But I’ve never done it and I cannot in a million years do that to you. It wouldn’t be the real me up there.”

However, it now appears she could turn her attentions towards Hollywood, with Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Working Title Films, who helped make Les Miserables in 2012, set to produce the remake of Oliver!.
