He was very quiet about it, but Garry Shandling was a devout Buddhist. Even though he had no health problems and died suddenly from a massive heart attack, Garry had his funeral already planned. According to TMZ, Garry will achieve monk status and have his head shaved. He will then be laid to rest with a card that list the “Five Precepts of Buddha.” A monk will then lead a chant while the congregation lights incense, which is supposed to guide the spirit to the next life. Then, because Garry was Jewish, food will be served. Afterwards, his close friends will begin a period of mourning, which last 49 days for Buddhists.

Jay Z’s Tidal service just turned one this week, and Page Six is reporting that the streaming-music service will soon be offering original films to subscribers. Several of their sources confirmed that Tidal is in negotiations with movie-industry executives to create movies for Tidal using the artists signed to the streaming service. That means you could see a movie starring Lil Wayne, T.I., Kanye, Rihanna or Mr. Tidal himself, Jay Z. This could be up and running as early as June.

They are gearing up for the last American Idol EVER. People magazine revealed this morning that former contestant Jennifer Hudson will be back to perform on the series finale. She placed seventh on the show’s third season. Jennifer has to pre-record her performance because she’s currently starring in “The Color Purple” on Broadway. Other notable alumni appearing on the finale include the very first Idol, Kelly Clarkson — who also had to pre-record her appearance because she is heavily pregnant — Carrie Underwood, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Kellie Pickler, Chris Daughtry and Sanjaya, just to name a few! The two-part American Idol finale will air next Wednesday and Thursday.

In a video that went viral, Iggy Azalea’s fiancé Nick Young admits that he’d been with other women while his Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell records him without his knowledge. The tape got leaked — allegedly by a third party — but the damage was done. D’Angelo’s teammates have iced him out because they know they can no longer trust him. It’s bad. But what about Iggy?? She tweeted yesterday, “Hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending…I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.” Before the video surfaced, Iggy and Nick put the wedding planning on hold. And now? Sources told TMZ that Nick is desperately trying to save the relationship, which is hanging by a thread.

When money is no object and your baby boy is marrying the girl of his dreams, who would you hire to perform at the reception? Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Gutseriev is worth billions, so he had no problem dropping the cash necessary to have Enrique Iglesias, Sting and Jennifer Lopez perform for his son’s wedding guests in Moscow!

Хадиже 20 лет, учится на стоматолога в Москве. Невесту для 28-летнего Саида искали 4 года. Не могу не отметить естественную красоту невесты. Без тонны макияжа и переделанного лица. Без непонятных конструкций из волос на голове. Стоимость услуг визажистов оценивается в 15 тыс рублей. Свадебное платье заказанное из Франции у Ellie Saab удивило публику не только своим огромным шлейфом. Оно было усыпано мерцающими стразами и натуральным жемчугом и обошлось порядка 25 млн рублей. Тиара на голове из белого золота с бриллиантами оценивается 3 млн рублей. #свадьбагуцериевасаида #свадьбавека #свадьбаГуцериевых
