Ga Ga: Obsessed Trailer Starring Beyonce, Ali Larter, and Idris Elba

We may have our doubts about Beyonce's ability to carry a film, but the trailer for her new thriller Obsessed looks kind of good. Beyonce plays the innocent wife in a plot very reminiscent of Fatal Attraction and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, as Heroes' Ali Larter in the Glenn Close/ Rebecca DeMornay psycho role moves in on her happy family and her husband, The Wire alum Idris Elba. And yes, there's a catfight showdown between Beyonce and Ali! Or should we says between Sasha and Ali?! Obsessed is due out in theaters next spring!

Beyonce Oscar Buzz Unfounded, Eamonn Walker Buzz Found

The so-called Oscar buzz swirling around Beyonce's portrayal of legendary singer Etta James in Cadillac Records is turning out to be much a buzz about nothing. With an appearance in practically the last half of the film and an extremely watered-down portrayal of James' drug addiction (we've seen grittier on a Law and Order opening sequence), we're wondering who started all the Oscar talk about the singer's performance. Oh right, it was that Essence article quoting Beyonce's acting coach---and yes, we're guilty of populating the buzz. To set the record straight: If anyone from the Cadillac cast is worthy of an Oscar nod it has to be Eamonn Walker. His powerful performance as the clean-living, righteous blues legend Howlin' Wolf was superb. Walker did his own singing in the film and tells AOL Black Voices that he prepared for the role by researching the little-known, yet highly influential music man. We hope Eamonn Walker gets to reprise his role as Howlin' Wolf if a biopic on the gravelly-voiced singer is ever produced.

Beyonce meets Fan And Youtube Star Shane Mercado

Move over Chris Crocker, and reset the fame clock because it's time for Beyonce imitator Shane Mercado to cash in on his 15 minutes of YouTube fame. The flexible dancer garnered a huge internet following when he posted a video of himself dancing to Beyonce's new video Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It), showcasing his talent and a very skimpy bodysuit. After making the rounds on morning news programs and The Bonnie Hunt Show, Mercado got the chance to meet his inspiration in person at the premiere of her latest film Cadillac Records in New York. In case you missed the Youtube video...

Ga Ga: Justin Timberlake Dancing Backup For Beyonce On “Saturday Night Live”

Admit it, you love the hot-stepping video for Beyonce's new song "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)! Maybe you even filmed a remake in your bedroom and posted it online. Which means you probably went crazy for Saturday Night Live's parody of the Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse inspired routine featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg dancing backup for Beyonce, in a body suit and heels no less! And host Paul Rudd calling Beyonce "B-Town" and "B-K" was also hilarious!

Beyonce Cast As Legendary Singer-Actress Eartha Kitt

Beyonce Knowles has been cast as the legendary singer Eartha Kitt in a biopic of the entertainer's life, according to ABC News. Even though the 79-year-old singer once suggested Academy Award winner Halle Berry portray her on screen saying, "I do not think I have quite the derriere of Beyonce. Give me Halle Berry instead," in the SFGate.com, she did express approval that the former Destiny Child had taken an interest in starring in her life story. Kitt is best known for her role as Catwoman in the Batman television series during the 1960s, a distinctive throaty singing voice and her signature purr. She has chronicled her rise from meager beginings in North Carolina to stardom on the stage and screen in her autobiograpies Thursday's Child (1956), Alone With Me (1976), and I'm Still Here: Confessions of a Sex Kitten (1989). Knowles, who is already creating Oscar buzz for her portrayal of famed singer Etta James in the upcoming film Cadillac Records, will also star in the thriller Obsessed alongside Idris Elba and Ali Larter next year.

Early Oscar Buzz For Beyonce’s Etta James Portrayal In Cadillac Records

Beyonce's acting coach Ivana Chubbuck is already starting the Oscar buzz for Beyonce's performance as Etta James in the upcoming film Cadillac Records. "I remember after Monster's Ball thinking, 'Halle's going to get an Oscar nomination.' I feel that way about Beyonce in this film. I think there is going to be some Oscar buzz around her; she's just that great," Chubbuck says in the November issue of Essence. The chart-topper has already won the approval of the legendary singer. "It's a privilege and an honor to have somebody like that girl," Etta James told New York Post's Page Six. "I don't think she looks like me, but that's all right. They can fix that up," Cadillac Records (due in December) tells the story of the rise and fall of the Chicago based R&B label Chess Records and also stars Jeffrey Wright as Muddy Waters and Mos Def as Chuck Berry.

Sophia Loren Made Tina Turner Come Out of Retirement to Tour One Last Time

With her one last blowout tour beginning in October, music legend Tina Turner says it was screen legend Sophia Loren who persuaded her out of retirement, according to Elle. "Sophia Loren asked me what I'd been up to. I said, 'Taking a rest.'" Turner recalls to the magazine. "She said, 'Seven years. Rest is over! People want to see you.'" After announcing retirement in 2000, Turner, then 68, took over the Grammys in silver hot pants with a mind-blowing performance with Beyonce, proving that age is nothing but a number. Revealing that she keeps her legendary legs in shape by "swimming and hiking. A lot," Turner adds, "This will be my last worldwide tour--I swear!" PHOTO: AP
