"Exciting news," he tweeted yesterday. "My friends at CAA have been asking me for 7 years when they can take offers seriously. Gave them the green light today."

'Jersey Shore' learns the meaning of 'done'

This week’s episode of “Jersey Shore" - appropriately titled “cabs are here” - was disappointing to say the least.

Even if you hadn’t seen promos, you probably weren’t blindsided by Sammi’s dramatic exit. Unless, of course, you’re Ron. After emotionally abusing Sam, breaking her glasses and kicking her mangled belongings out onto the balcony, he was still somehow flabbergasted by her decision to leave.

As if merely living under the same roof as your ex wouldn't be reason enough to get the hell out…

What's the verdict on Gaga's 'Born This Way'?

We know you've heard it by now - Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" has arrived. It's the first single off her new album of the same name - one that she's promised will be "the greatest album of the decade" and is expected to arrive in May.

While the message of self-acceptance and individuality rings crystal clear on the up-tempo, disco-driven track, something else is ringing in the ears of quite a few listeners: its similarity to Madonna's 1989 smash, "Express Yourself."

A number of listeners are questioning if, in fact, "Born This Way" is really just a rip-off of the Madonna hit. The Chicago Tribune notes that "it sounds so much like the 1989 Madonna classic that it will only fuel the convictions of those who feel that Gaga is just a 21st Century knockoff of the Material Girl, herself a canny appropriator of past genre- and gender-bending artists."

8th grader lands interview with Eminem

Eminem, 2010’s best-selling artist and a nominee for 10 Grammy Awards this weekend, has given his first interview in four months – to an eighth-grader.

Fourteen-year-old Annie Reed, a reporter for the Cavalier Corner newspaper at East Hills Middle School in Troy, Michigan, scored the phone interview last week, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Annie told the Free Press that her school newspaper instructor liked her idea of doing a piece on the Detroit rapper, but he wanted more than a biography. He encouraged her to try for the interview.

Red carpet: New 'stage' in Jane Fonda's career

Cher, Colin Farrell, Carla Gugino, Anjelica Huston and Christian Slater were just a few of the celebs who packed The Ahmanson Theatre on Wednesday night to see Jane Fonda make her L.A. theatrical debut.

Our favorite former fitness guru was nominated for a Tony last year for her NYC production of the same show, "33 Variations," a play about a musicologist suffering from a terminal illness.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Was Elton John wrong to say Billy Joel needs rehab?

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Was Elton John wrong to say Billy Joel needs rehab?

Elton John is not backing down today! He first did that Rolling Stone interview, saying his buddy Billy Joel needed to get his problems with addiction under control.

Then he went on “Today” and handed out more tough love, saying that Billy Joel needs some serious rehab. A lot of people think this all should have been done behind closed doors.

I’ve got to say, I get where Elton is coming from – a place of experience and love. While it is easy to suggest that Elton should have kept this private, perhaps he feels things have gotten bad enough that he knows that Billy wouldn’t get the message that way. But now, Billy Joel is striking back! Joel has just released a response to Elton. He doesn’t seem to be mad, but should he be?
