KeKe Palmer continues to strike while the fire is hot!
The 21-year-old actress has landed yet another role that will elevate her career; this time on Fox’s 2016 live broadcast of Grease. Joining stars Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo and Julianne Hough as Sandy, KeKe Palmer will play the role of Marty, originally portrayed by Dinah Manoff in the film.
Starring in a musical should be second nature to the actress; this past winter, KeKe took Broadway as Cinderella, and previously played the part of Chilli in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Her breakout role in Akeelah And The Bee launched her career full speed ahead, setting her up in the hit cable series True Jackson, VP, and movies Ice Age: Continental Drift, Joyful Noise, Brotherly Love, and Imperial Dreams.
Undoubtedly, KeKe Palmer is gifted, and her resume is stacked! Catch her on the live musical production of Grease, which will air on Fox on January 31, 2016.
In celebration of Entourage hitting the big screen, Emmanuelle Chriqui discussed her character and the filming process.
Fans have been waiting three and half years for the Entourage film and it’s finally here, bigger and better than ever. Directed by the same man who created the show, Doug Ellin, Entourage finds the beloved characters Vincent Chase, Eric, Turtle and Johnny and Ari Gold face their biggest challenge yet. Entourage features the original cast from the television show including Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, Jeremy Piven and Emmanuelle Chriqui. Will Vincent Chase be able to pull off directing and starring in his own movie solidifying his place in hollywood? Will Johnny “Drama” finally be recognized for his work? Will Ari get fired or pull off the riskiest decision of his career? The answers to all these questions lie in the film. Featuring cameo appearances by Jessica Alba, Liam Neeson, Mark Wahlberg, Kid Cudi, T.I., Armie Hammer, Billy Bob Thornton, Bob Saget and many more, watch as the characters we’ve known for so many years mature and reach new heights. We were fortunate enough to talk Emmanuelle Chriqui who plays Sloan, Eric’s (Kevin Connolly) baby mother. Emmanuelle filled us in on what it was like picking up after three years as well as some movie spoilers, so check out our exclusive interview below:
He’s amazing. I felt like for the film there’s no better situation than having the creator of the show direct the movie. He knows specifically what he wants and knows how to get it. it was awesome to have Doug be the director.
Your character is kind of put in this awkward situation of possibly taking E back, in real life do you think you would handle that situation differently?
Yeah, I don’t know if in real life that would’ve worked out. I’m not as patient or as cool as Sloan is. I don’t think and I would have been able to forgive him.
What was the most surprising thing about filming?
The most surprising thing about filming was how normal it felt. There was no adjustment period even though three and a half years had passed and I would say that’s pretty surprising and that’s just a testament to what we shared on the show.
What was your favorite scene from the movie?
I re-saw the ending and it kind of brought tears to my eyes. I was so moved by the whole thing that happens to Drama’s character with all of us being there. I gotta say that’s one of my favorite moments for sure.
Can you tell us about some of your upcoming projects?
I am currently shooting a television show on TNT called Murder in the First with Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson and that starts to air on June 8, my character is tough as nails she’s half Israeli and half Latin and really street smart. I also have an independent film coming out called “the steps” with Jason Ritter, that’ll be coming out next year.
What are some of the bigger differences, aside from the budget, between filming a big blockbuster like entourage as opposed to an independent film?
I think on a super low budget you just kind of move faster through the day because you have less days to shoot. You have to come ready with your a game and be ready to knock it out in like 3 or 4 takes whereas on a studio film you might have 3 or 4 days. Luxury of time is the biggest difference.
Two words that the new movie Aloha are: beautiful and elusive.
Yes, every shot of Aloha definitely was beautiful. The colors were vibrant and reflected beautifully off the actors’ perfectly tanned faces. Sadly, I also say elusive because that’s what the story was. Aloha was a dreamlike movie in its pacing and dreamboat actors—and aside from occasional glimpses of clarity, everything was fleeting and easily forgotten. Written and directed by Cameron Crowe, the movie follows Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper), a defense contractor as he is faced with the ages old conflict of doing the right thing versus getting a lot of money. Along his journey, he is joined by a new hotshot pilot, Captain Ng (Emma Stone), and his ex-girlfriend Tracy (Rachel McAdams). Herein lies the second plot—the ol’ love triangle. Except that there’s another husband in the picture, played wonderfully by John Krasinski, whom Tracy has two kids with but isn’t sure she loves (especially now that Brian is in the picture).
Cali native HASEEB drops another record from his upcoming project, and it’s just as dope as his first offering.
The monotony of the day to day grind often leaves many of us unmotivated and burnt out. “Game Days” is a soundtrack for the days when the daily grind takes its toll on you. Listen as Southern California emcee HASEEB, and producer Curtiss King deliver the first record from their forthcoming collaborative EP titled, The Daisy Chain.
Natasha Fisher gives us her take on Future’s “F*ck Up Some Commas” record.
Unlike the original Metro Boomin-produced record that features twisted synth lines, the 19-year-old Canadian songster strings only her guitar to the chords giving listeners the ultimate acoustic experience. Her soft sultry voice accompanied with the guitar make for an eclectic remake of the popular Top 40 hit.

R. Kelly, the King of R&B announced his 14th studio album, Buffet, during an interview with Rocsi Diaz on HLN’s The Daily Share.
The “I Wish” singer dished on the inspiration behind his latest project:
“It’s all you can hear. I’m 27 years deep in the business, I’ve been blessed to do this music for so long and I’ve got a lot of great songs under my belt, and fans love it. But, I’ve got all different kinds of generations of fans now, and I have to feed everybody. You’ve got hip hop, you’ve got old school music with the “Step In The Name of Love” type, then you’ve got traditional R. Kelly, sensuous sexual kind of music. It’s just a variety of things, so I call it the buffet.”
Buffet, the sequel to his sexy 2014 release, Black Panties, was originally called White Panties.
The Chicago native also premiered new single “Planet,” an inspirational ode inspired by devastating world news and the events in Baltimore, during an interview mid-May with Big Tigger on V-103 in Atlanta.
According to Kells, real name Robert Kelly, the album will be released this summer to early fall. And we are here for it.
