Laverne Cox cast in “Rocky Horror Picture Show”… Adele’s new album… Is Michael Jackson’s daughter married?… Janet Jackson tweets apology… and Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom call off divorce
“Orange is the New Black” star Laverne Cox has been cast as cross-dressing scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Fox’s upcoming “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The reboot is celebrating the movie’s 40 years in theaters. It’s being directed, choreographed and executive produced by Kenny Ortega, who did the “High School Musical” movies. We have to wait until the fall of next year to get it.
Adele posted a lengthy message to her fans yesterday, confirming that a new album is on the way after a long, four-year wait. She’s calling it “25” and she says that while her last album, “21,” was a break-up record, this one is a make-up record. She explained, “I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold onto the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done.” She added, “I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back. When I was in it I wanted out! So typical….25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realizing. And I’m so sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
Is Michael Jackson’s daughter married? Paris Jackson has changed her Instagram handle to Paris Jackson Castellaw, which is the last name of her boyfriend/maybe husband, Chester. She’s 17; he’s 18. They’ve only been dating since April, but Paris is crazy nuts over this boy. Of course, Paris’ family will freak out if she’s already run off and married Chester because they want to make sure she has an iron-clad prenup in place before she does something serious like that. Millions and potentially BILLIONS of dollars would be at stake if this didn’t work out.
Janet Jackson has tweeted an apology to her fans who had their Instagram accounts deleted after they posted snippets of her in concert. She said, “Hey you guys, I have been listening…
I love and appreciate my fans. I want you to know that I enjoy watching the short video clips of how you are Burning It Up at the Unbreakable shows. Please keep posting them.
My team is passionate about protecting the intellectual property we are creating for the tour and possible future projects. It was never their intention, acting on my behalf, to have social media accounts removed. Permitting the use of long clips does present a contractual problem for these projects. I hope you understand. I trust the fans will use their short recordings for their own memories and to share on their social media networks of choice.
I have asked my team to change their approach and allow you to engage socially with these videos.
I know I wouldn’t be here without the love I stand on.”
In a surprising move, Khloe Kardashian sent her lawyer to court yesterday to call off her divorce to Lamar Odom. She initially filed for divorce back in December 2013, but couldn’t get him to sign until July. But because of a huge backlog in the courts, the divorce had never been finalized, which made Khloe his legal wife and gave her the right to make all the decisions regarding Lamar’s medical care. So why did Khloe call off the divorce? Some are saying it’s because Lamar has now promised her he will never do drugs again and she wants to give the marriage another try. Others are saying it’s because she wants to maintain control over his medical decisions. And obviously, it looks like she’s been making all the right ones. Either way, the divorce is off. When Billy Bush asked Kris Jenner about it, all she would say is, “Nothing but love.”
