The pair has teamed up to co-produce Top Five, an upcoming film starring Chris Rock. Rock plays Andre Allen, a movie star who has begun reevaluating his career as a comedian. Kanye, Jay, and Chris aren’t the only uber famous names with a hand in this film. The Roots’ own Questlove will reportedly serve as the movie’s executive music producer.
Top Five will also star Rosario Dawson, Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan, Cedric The Entertainer, J.B. Smoove, Sherri Shepherd, Anders Holm, and Jay Pharoah.
No word yet on when that film will be available for our viewing pleasure.
In the days that passed since Joan Rivers’ tragic death, details continue to emerge about her star-studded funeral.
Us Magazine is now reporting that Melissa Rivers, Joan’s daughter and best friend, sent her mother off with one final funny message. Here’s what she had to say:
I received the note that you slipped under my bedroom door last night. I was very excited to read it, thinking that it would contain amazing, loving advice that you wanted to share with me. Imagine my surprise when I opened it and saw that it began with the salutation, “Dear Landlord.” I have reviewed your complaints and addressed them below:
1. While I appreciate your desire to “upgrade” your accommodations to a larger space, I cannot, in good conscience, move my 13-year-old son Cooper into the laundry room. I do agree that it will teach him a life lesson about fluffing and folding, but since I don’t foresee him having a future in dry cleaning, I must say no.
Also, I know you are a true creative genius (and I am in awe of the depth of your instincts), but breaking down a wall without my permission is not an appropriate way to express that creativity. It is not only a boundary violation but a building-code violation as well. Additionally, the repairman can’t get here until next week, so your expansion plan will have to be put on hold.
2. Re: Your fellow ‘tenant” (your word), Cooper. While I trust you with him, it is not OK for your to undermine my rules. It is not OK that you let him have chips and ice cream for dinner. It is not OK that you let him skip school to go to the movies. And it is really not OK that the movie was Last Tango in Paris.
As for your taking his friend to a “gentlemen’s club,” I accepted your rationale that it was an educational experience for the boys – and you are right, he is the most popular kid in school right now – but I’d prefer he nor learn biology from those “gentlemen” and their ladies, Bambi, Trixie and Kitten. And just because I yelled at you, I do not appreciate your claim that I have created a hostile living environment.
3. While I’m glad to see you’re socializing, you must refill the hot tub after your parties. In fact, you need to tone down the parties all together. Imagine my surprise when I saw the photos you posted on Facebook of your friends frolicking topless in the hot tub.
I think it’s great that you’re entertaining more often, but I can’t keep fielding complaints from the neighbors about your noisy party games like Ring Around the Walker and naked Duck, Duck Caregiver.
I’m more than happy to have you use the house for social gatherings, but you cannot rent it out, advertise as “party central” or hand out T-shirts that say “Fuck Jimmy Buffett.”
In closing, I hope I have satisfactorily answered your complaints and queries. I love having you live with me, and I am grateful for every minute Cooper and I have with you. You are an inspiration. You are also 30 days late with the rent.
Much love, Melissa”
Though it’s been months since the 2014 MTV VMAs, there’s still one moment we just can’t seem to forget.
During a performance of the hit song “Bang Bang,” Nicki Minaj, who was performing alongside Jessie J and Ariana Grande, ran off stage for a quick change. Unfortunately she wasn’t able to get it together in time and was forced to take the stage in an unzipped black dress.
Nicki appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her wardrobe malfunction and more with host Ellen DeGeneres.
“I had I don’t know about 40-50 seconds to change from the “Anaconda” outfit into the “Bang Bang” outfit. Originally I was just going to have a skirt that just wrapped around the green but then I realized that Jessie J and Ariana Grande were wearing black and white I didn’t want to ruin the shot with me wearing a green bra and them wearing black and white. I was like I have to put on a black dress really quickly and sure enough we didn’t have a real quick-change right there. So it was literally my whole team just standing there holding curtains around me and it was pitch black. I couldn’t see anything and right before it was time for me to walk out they went to zip it up…And right there I thought I died,” the 31-year-old said.
“I didn’t have any underwear. No bra, because I had just taken off the Anaconda outfit. So I was butt ass naked…I don’t know,” she added.
Find out what else she had to say in the clip above.
Chris Pratt is headed to Saturday Night Live.
The Guardians of the Galaxy star will be the first guest star of the show’s 40th season. He’ll be joined on stage by musical guest Ariana Grande. The following week, SNL has invited comedic genius Sarah Silverman to take the stage alongside Maroon 5.
This will be Pratt’s first time hosting the show. Silverman, on the other hand, is no stranger to the SNL stage. She formerly starred on the show from 1993-1994. This will, however, be her first time appearing as a guest host.
Pratt’s SNL debut will air September 27.
