+ As you're marking off the days on your calendar until True Blood premieres, the internet is bubbling with gossip surrounding the final season of the hit HBO vampire drama. One source even goes as far to claim that the writers have decided to pull a Joss Whedon and kill off a beloved character.
+ Rapper 50 Cent proves that he's got a comedic side to him, as he teams up with Jimmy Kimmel for a short spoof of Maleficent.
+ Photos of Gillian Jacobs on the set of Girls have surfaced, but viewers beware, as they're a bit of spoilers!
+ Although it originally seemed as though Matthew McConaughey would not return for futher seasons of True Detective (despite how wildly successful it was and how many folks raved about his performance as Rust Cohle), the Dallas Buyers Club star has stated that he's wants to come back for more!
50 Cent wants to star on Glee.
The "In Da Club" hitmaker thinks he would be perfect for a guest role on the hit musical TV show and hopes producers will write an original character for him to put his acting skills to the test.
"I probably would [consider it]. Depending on what the episode was or what they had planned for it. I'm excited... I just want to work. I want to play something different. Anything other than a rapper, because I don't feel like I'm working if I'm playing that. That's the easy part," the rapper told E! News. Glee has featured an eclectic mix of guest stars in the past including Lindsay Lohan, Ricky Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, so 50 Cent could become the show's very first rapper.
50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - branched out into acting in 2005 and has since starred alongside the likes of Robert De Niro and Bruce Willis. Although he says music is his first love, the 37-year-old star is keen for more challenging film roles in the future: "I have developed a passion for film. I still love music so I write music. I got a chance to explore my new passion for film. I've been lucky enough to get it right."
Arguably, the Top 3 vote is the most intense of American Idol. The trio of singers is on the cusp of their goal, inches away from being a contender in the show’s big finale. The biggest vote of the season was recorded after the Wednesday performance round: 95 million.
But some of the voters would be disappointed, because one of the Top 3 would be sent home before Thursday came to a close. The only question was… which?

- Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm): “Cyrus (Wallace Shawn) implements changes to the Waldorf Thanksgiving traditions, which upsets Blair.” The introduction of iocane powder is always a controversial decision.

You don’t have to be buff to make a music video - but it certainly does help. Just ask rapper-turned-superstar Mark Wahlberg, who first made an impression with his pecs (not his rhymes). Recently, R&B notables Mary J. Blige, Timbaland, Wyclef Jean and 50 Cent, among others, were named for steroid use by the media. Now, we just have to find out if it’s true. But what if it is? Music is competitive, sure, but it’s not a sport. The only trophies awarded are Grammys - and aren’t these given for sound, not looks?
Currently, officials are saying there is nothing to indicate the celebs broke the law. They are, however, being investigated. So far, only the Blige representative has answered the charges with a resounding denial. The other recording artists accused have not commented. Congressional hearings which will delve into steroid abuse in the baseball industry will begin this month.

The most powerful celebrity according to Forbes Magazine’s Celebrity 100 is Tom Cruise. If that wasn’t a downer…I don’t know what else is. To make the list Forbes looks at a celebrity’s earnings and media appearances over the last 12 months, traditionally June to June.
New members of the Celebrity 100 club this year include the cast of The Sopranos in the ninth spot. U2 was the highest-paid music group on the list. Jerry Seinfeld was the highest-paid comedian, but only the 28th most powerful celebrity. Meanwhile, American Idol stars Simon Cowell (29th) and Ryan Seacrest (88th) made their debuts on the Celebrity 100. Simon’s earnings were put at $43 million, Seacrest’s at $12 million. And yes, the stars of The Simple Life made the list as Paris Hilton came in at 56th and Nicole Richie snuck in at 95th. Paris’ dog didn’t make the cut. The 100th spot goes to ABC’s star of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Ty Pennington.
He’s a look at Forbes Magazine Top 10 List:
- Tom Cruise, $67 million
- The Rolling Stones, $90 million
