Chris Stokes

Successfully writing, directing and producing the hit film, “You Got Served” (which grossed 48 million in the box office, generated over 100 million in revenue and began the worldwide dance phenomenon), Stokes has shown the industry that he has a proven record of commercial success. The two films “Somebody Help Me” and follow up sequel “Somebody Help Me 2” combined, helped the BET network and sponsors generate huge rating numbers on the channel, and also gross over 4 million in (DVD) home entertainment and television profits. Recently MTV Network shot a pilot of Chris Stokes’ family and businesses called, “Different Stokes.”

He recently released his pint version of “You Got Served” called “Battlefield America” this past June. The Stokes helmed horror flick “The Helpers” is set to hit theaters early 2013 which is sure to be a box office smash!

Stokes is now getting set to announce his third film. Sources say that the film will be an urban comedy set to release some time in 2013 but that’s the only information that is being released at this time. With Stokes track record as a director the new film promises to be a success!

Lana Del Rey “Born To Die: Paradise Edition”

The Paradise Edition of Del Rey’s 2012 first effort, Born To Die, is a repackaging of the polarizing disc with eight new songs.

The revamped version of the album, which has sold just under 350,000 copies in the U.S. and more than 2.5 million worldwide, will hit stores on November 13. The eight new songs will be available as a stand-alone CD entitled Paradise, or in a double-disc set with the entire first album and the bonus disc, as well as a deluxe version, which will include both albums, an 8-track remix CD with six music videos and a two-track 7″ vinyl version of “Blue Velvet.”

The first single from the collection is the Rick Rubin-produced slow burn “Ride,” which was written by Del Rey and her “Video Games” collaborator Justin Parker. The other news songs on the collection include “American,” “Cola,” “Body Electric,” “Gods and Monsters,” “Yayo,” “Bel Air” and a cover of the 1950s classic “Blue Velvet,” which is being used as part of her H&M ad campaign.

Miley Cyrus Gets Sexy For Two And A Half Men

Miley Cyrus is shaking off her Hannah Montana image and getting saucy with her forthcoming Two and a Half Men appearance. Miley, 19, landed a guest spot on the popular sitcom and plays the daughter of one of Walden’s mate’s (Walden is played by Ashton Kutcher). With the new Miley Cyrus haircut – a sleek blond bob – it’s clear that Miley is leaving her Disney days behind as MTV have shown her pictured on a bed with Ashton, wearing a skimpy lingerie set, which leaves little to the imagination.

It’s not Ashton that she’s after, in the show though – so Mila Kunis can breathe a sigh of relief. Miley’s character Missi has her sights set on Jake – played by Angus T Jones. Her latest TV appearance seems to be the next step in her campaign to become a sex symbol, rather than a squeaky-clean teen star. Earlier this year, it was reported that she’s working on her new album, which she hopes will be “very adult and sexy and believable.” She’s signed up with Red Light Management, who deal with the likes of Foo Fighters and The Dave Matthews Band, so we’re expecting a rockier image from Cyrus this time round.

Nicki Minaj Introduces Pink Friday Perfume

Pound the alarm, fragrance fiends, because Pink Friday is in stores now.

The much-anticipated perfume comes packaged in a bottle shaped in the likeness of Minaj’s head and torso (would we expect anything less?), complete with pink wig, white bustier and gold nameplate chain. Looking like the playful spawn of a doll and an atomizer, it accurately reflects the singer’s colorful, quirkly fashion sense. The scent itself contains notes of fruit, vanilla and musk.

“I’ve been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually,” she told MTV News.

Named after Minaj’s 2010 album Pink Friday and its sequel, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, the fragrance joins Lady Gaga’s Fame as one of the higher-profile perfume launches this fall. “Pink Friday is a celebration of my life at this moment; it is a reflection of me as a creator, and an expression of me as a woman,” Minaj said in a press release. A “Moment 4 Life,” indeed.

Earlier this week, the wig-loving songstress debuted the scent at Macy’s Herald Square in New York dressed in a provocative ensemble as a sort of Barbie policewoman. Perhaps the newly minted American Idol judge is preparing for her upcoming role as an arbiter of vocal talent. But from Minaj, we’ve learned to expect nothing less.

After seeing the final product, Minaj declared, “My fans are going to spaz out when they see this.” For all of the “Barbz” out there—Minaj’s affectionate nickname for her followers, of which she counts 14 million on Twitter—the fragrance will be sold at Macy’s and other major department stores.

Lindsay Lohan Rushed To The Hospital

The actress was rushed to the hospital yesterday for what was initially believed to be a lung infection. Her mother Dina Lohan says she suffers from bronchial asthma, and blamed New York City’s high pollen count.

“Lindsay had not been feeling well all last week following a week of high pollen counts in New York,” Dina Lohan told the Daily News. “She has had bronchial asthma ever since she was little.”

Millions of people have seasonal allergies to pollen, a fine, powdery substance produced by plants, according to the Mayo Clinic. That allergic reaction is a common trigger for asthma.
Though asthma victims sometimes don’t realize they are having an ongoing attack, confusing it with bronchitis or other respiratory ailments, by Sunday the 26-year-old’s mother had put her foot down, claims a friend of the “Liz & Dick” star.

“Dina brought Lindsay to the hospital emergency room herself,” a friend said.

“She’s at Dina’s home now, resting,” the source added.

“Her mother is keeping a close eye on her. She’s safe.”

Robert Pattinson “Only If We’re Married”

Robert Pattinson will only take Kristen Stewart back if she marries him. The 26-year-old actor, who was left devastated when his ‘Twilight’ co-star publically admitted this summer that she had cheated on him with her ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ director Rupert Sanders, is said to be “desperate” to get back with the brunette beauty, but he wants her to “truly commit” to him.

A source said: “Rob told Kristen the only way he can forgive her affair is if she truly commits to him.

“Rob has wanted to marry Kristen for quite a while and he doesn’t want to get back with her unless he knows she means it for life too.

“Although Kristen broke Rob’s heart he has realised he can’t live without her. He never stopped loving her and he believes she still loves him.

“He is desperate to make it work and wants to give her another chance but not unless she proves she really wants it too.”

Robert – whose ‘Twilight’ character Edward Cullen marries Kristen’s alter-ego Bella Swan in the film franchise – had plans to pop the question to Kristen shortly before she broke the news about her infidelity, and while she has previously not wanted to rush into marriage, the 22-year-old star “will do anything” to win him back.

Demi Lovato Opens Up About Body Issues

Demi Lovato opens up about her ongoing struggle with body issues during an upcoming appearance on “Katie,” where she reveals her insecurities started at just 3 years old.

“I remember being 3 years old in a diaper and rubbing my hand over my stomach,” Lovato says, “and I remember thinking in my head ‘I wonder if one day this will ever be flat?’”

Lovato’s misconceptions about her body, as well as bullying from peers who called her “fat,” led “The X Factor” judge to battle with bulimia, cutting, and depression.

Of the teasing, Lovato says, “It played more of a toll on me than if I was physically abused in school. ”

“I’ve always said I wished that they had just hit me in the face and gotten it over with because what they said to me sticks to me to this day and it [turned] me into the person I am today,” she tells Katie Couric.

Of course, Lovato herself ended up hitting someone else in the face, her backup dancer, during an altercation in 2010.

Calling the incident “a huge mistake,” she admits, “I wasn’t really in control of my emotions at the time and I was just out of control and there’s no excuse for it but it definitely showed everyone I needed to get help and I think two days later I was checking into rehab.”

Earlier this week, it was announced Lovato will serve as an ambassador for Secret deodorant’s “Mean Stinks” anti-bullying campaign.

Lovato’s full interview on “Katie” will air today.
