Trailer arrives for 'Footloose' remake

If you were around to see the original “Footloose” in 1984, get ready to have a serious sense of déjà vu.

A trailer for the 2011 remake has arrived, and it shows that the new version isn’t straying far from its predecessor. In director Craig Brewer's update, Ren MacCormack moves from Boston to Bomont, a small Southern town where a dance ban has been put into effect following a post-dance car crash.

With help from his love interest, the preacher's daughter Ariel Moore (Julianne Hough), Ren decides to take the ban on. Dennis Quaid stars as Ariel's father, Rev. Shaw Moore.

Joss Stone doing fine after alleged murder plot

Brit singer Joss Stone was reportedly at the center of a kidnapping ploy a week ago, but the 24-year-old now says that she’s doing a-ok.

Last week, British paper The Sun reported that two men carrying swords, rope and a body bag were arrested outside of Stone’s home under suspicion of being connected to an alleged kidnapping and murder plot.

The songstress said in a statement last Wednesday that she was “absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their inquiries,” and added to PopEater in an interview on Tuesday that she's unfazed.

“They didn’t manage it so it’s all good,” Stone said. “I’m fine.”

The singer’s next album, "LP1," arrives July 26.

An underdog steps up on 'The Voice'

This week’s “The Voice” kicked off with cheers and heartbreak.

Two singers from Team Cee Lo and Team Adam were saved and two were let go right off the bat! Vicci Martinez and Nakia were saved on Team Cee Lo while Javier Colon and Casey Weston were the last ones standing from Team Adam.

And then the show really began. First up was the amazing Frenchie Davis, and she nailed her performance once again! She did a rendition of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer,” hitting the right notes at the right time and even holding at least two notes longer than anyone has on that stage. It was electrifying and the coaches agreed.
