What's the verdict on 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon'?

Critics are calling "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" as bleak and meaningless as its title, but some do say that Michael Bay's latest effort was at least better than the 2009 sequel.

The third installment features a grown-up Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) who teams up with the Autobots against the Decepticons in (of course) a battle of good versus evil involving a mission to the moon.

What would a “Transformers” movie be without a sexy girlfriend by Witwicky’s side? British model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley almost seamlessly replaces former co-star Megan Fox, who dropped out of the trilogy last May.

Selena Gomez meets her crush - Shia LaBeouf

You can't escape Shia LaBeouf right now if you tried, and although Selena Gomez really did try to do exactly that in the clip below, it was only because she was taken by surprise. It turns out that the 18-year-old has a crush on the 25-year-old "Transformers" star.

In a video titled "Meeting Shia," the actress approached what she seemed to think would be a meeting with a fan cool, calm and collected - until she saw who was sitting in the room.

Gomez quickly fled the doorway in shock, but before she could get away, LaBeouf emerged.

Movie halted amid reports Bollywood star pregnant

A blessed event is putting a crimp in a planned film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie "Heroine" has been put on hold following reports that its star, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, is pregnant.

“At this point nothing is more important than Aishwarya's well being and good health,” the movie's producers, UTV Motion Pictures, said in a statement. “In that context, we have all mutually agreed that the best step would be to avoid shooting further, rather than proceeding with an incredibly demanding schedule over the coming months.” FULL POST

Smurfette does high fashion

If "The Smurfs" movie doesn't do enough to revive her career, perhaps Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry in the film) could consider modeling.

The character from the classic cartoon added some high fashion panache to her usual white dress in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar (yup, the one with Anne Hathaway on the cover.)

In one photo, she rocks a $685 beret and a $4,695 bag from Marc Jacobs, while another sees her stepping into the socks and stilettos trend with a $995 bag from Dolce & Gabbana, complete with $225 earrings and a $225 cuff. (Those black socks you see with the red shoes are the stylist's own.)

"The Smurfs" arrives in theaters on July 29.

'The Voice' gets tour dates

Fearful you'll go through "The Voice" withdrawal once the show wraps up? Well, there's now a summer concert to ease the pain.

It looks like the NBC show is taking a hint from fellow reality singing competition “American Idol” (and, to some extent, “Glee,”) and taking “The Voice” out on the road for a tour starting July 27.

Celebrity “Voice” coach Adam Levine let it slip in a tweet on Monday, and Carson Daly confirmed the news on Tuesday's night episode. You'll get to see finalists from this season, including Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, Dia Frampton, Frenchie Davis, Casey Weston and Xenia.

Alicia Keys in awe of waxen look-a-like

Madame Tussauds is in the business of making wax figures that resemble their famous counterparts but the job they did on Alicia Keys' statue went so well, the multiple Grammy winner could hardly believe her eyes.

"I actually think it's really, really good!" she told MTV News when she paid the figure a visit at Madame Tussauds New York.

"I was looking close up: It's like my eyebrows are for real, and it's like my eyes are for real, and the bone structure of my chin," Keys goes on, "like, 'Look, that's my chin! That's my jaw!'
