Green in the ways of the hard core music business, Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) gets things done. The ambitious 24-year-old has been given a career-making assignment. Under the ‘no-bitchassness’ direction of his boss Sergio Roma (Sean ‘P-Diddy’ Combs), his mission is to fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.'s world famous Greek Theatre for the first leg on a huge comeback tour.
Sergio gives him one warning: "The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril." British rocker Aldous Snow (Russel Brand) is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose-diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken and drug-infused disaster. Weary of "yes men" and scared he's entered the "greatest hits" moment in his career, Snow's in the midst of a downward spiral.
As the countdown to the concert begins, Aaron must navigate a minefield of London drug smugglers, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver Aldous safe and, sort of, sound--all while trying to remain faithful to his med student girlfriend. With all the sex, drugs, women and partying, getting him to the Greek is no easy feat.
Get Him to the Greek is laugh out loud funny! Sean Combs is no rookie to the camera and stretches his comedic limits with this part. I didn’t see it coming, but it’s worth the cost of the ticket. Russell Brand and Jonah Hill are insanely compatible and the chemistry was…..chemistry.
Alicia Keys has 12 Grammys under her belt and now she has something else under there, a baby! The 29-year-old R&B singer is pregnant with her first child, her representatives confirmed but would not say when the child is due.
Weeks of photos have shown Keys noticeably fuller in the mid-section and sporting a collection of loose-fitting black tops.
The father is Keys' fiance, producer/DJ/rapper Swizz Beatz. The couple is engaged to be married in a private ceremony later this year. No word on if it'll be before or after the bundle of joy arrives.
Swizz Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean has two other children; one son from his marriage to Mashonda Tifrere (who contends Keys knowingly sought out her husband while the two were still married and happy) and another son from a previous relationship.
Swizz Beatz and Keys have been friends for several years and worked together on one song for her current album, "The Element of Freedom," the publicist said.
"They're very happy," a source close to the couple said.
SALT LAKE CITY – PROVO, Utah – Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, has died after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He was 42.
Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. MDT.
Coleman, with his sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing, became a star after "Diff'rent Strokes" debuted in 1978. He played the younger brother in a pair of African-American siblings adopted by a wealthy white man.
His popularity faded when the show ended after six seasons on NBC and two on ABC.
He suffered continuing ill health from the kidney disease that stunted his growth and had a host of legal problems in recent years.

Singersroom Live! (SR Live!), an extension of Singersroom.com, has created a signature "interactive R&B experience" utilizing an intimate concert platform to deliver the next crop of stars to music lovers. And it all unfolded at Atlanta’s newest hot spot, The Havanah Club.
Coming to the stage are some you may know well and those whom you’ll become fast favorites of; the Singersoom laid out the red carpet to fan fav Teedra Moses, Atlanta’s newly birthed songbird Dondria, MTV’s own D. Woods and Jaiden: the Cure who held it down for being the only man on the bill. Not one lady complained.
SR Live! Past performers include - Chrisette Michele, Emily King, Hal Linton, K. Michelle, Johnta Austin , Megan Rochell and more. SR Live has attracted artists from all over and feel their mission is to break new artists and bring back old favorites. And if fans have a say, they can say it on Singersroom.com as their opinion counts as well.
Not in the habit of bringing what radio plays as the hottest jams, “…it’s what we like and who we believe in. we personally pick who we want.”, says Gary Gentles, CEO of Singersoom. A trio of music enthusiasts, the New York based creators are Gary Gentles, Deyior Dunbar and Adeniyi Omisore (Ah-duh-nee-yee O-mee-so-ray).
As with most celeb-infused events in the ATL, Garner Circle PR displayed their southern hospitality as publicists for the evenings’ affair. Singersroom is a free event for the fans and not so much the industry. But they can come to.
It's Common like you've never seen before...
A girls night out was the perfect mix of company to see Common, Queen Latifah and Paula Patton do their thing.
Just Wright is definitely a chic flick, but the rating was family friendly and tastefully done. The rapport between Scott McNight (Common) and Leslie Wright (Queen) was a chemical attraction from the gas station.
The fact that baller-wife-wannabe Morgan (Paula Patton) was so enthralled by the lifestyle, was a minor blip on the radar and was easily dismissed once the relationship began to grow between Scott and Leslie. And even though the movie didn't really go deep into the twisted logic of a gold-digger, we'll always have Basketball Wives.
I was also happy to see veteran actors stepping in to play mom(s) and pop. Phylicia Rashad was a shoe-in for Scott McNights' opinionated mother. Let's just be real, no matter what the role,you're not gonna get one over on Clair Huxtable. Pam Grier and Grey's Anatomy star James Pickens, Jr. plays Leslie Wrights' parents who love unconditionally.
You can't have a basketball movie without real ballers and thank goodness they kept it real. Shouts out to Dwayne Wade, Dwight Howard, Rashad Lewis, Jalen Rose and all the guys on the court for making the game look real.
Just Wright is a true love-story that could easily end up in my dvd collection.
