After making her acting debut in Battleships, Rihanna has landed a role as a lead voice in an upcoming animated film called Happy Smekday!.

Rihanna will co-star alongside Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory in the film, which is about:
“A friendly alien race invades Earth and uses it as a hideout from their mortal enemy. When one lowly alien accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl, embarking on a comical road trip across a postapocalyptic America and learning what it really means to be human.”
Happy Smekday! will be in theaters near the end of 2014. But in the meantime, Rihanna is also set to appear in The End of the World, starring comedian and actor Seth Rogen.

Bitch Jacked My Style...but who rocked it?

Brandy and Kellie Pickler both stepped out in the same dress only two weeks apart. Both celebutantes chose a pale-pink Herve Leger by Max Azria design with fringe and metal detailing. This flirty display of legs can be yours for the low low price (LOL) of just $2,600!

Brandy, 33, debuted the dress at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 20. The "Brandy & Ray J" star, who released the single "Put it Down" with Chris Brown last month, accessorized with Christian Louboutin slingbacks, lots of jewelry, and a mini clutch. Her hair, which she normally wears straight, was curly and loose.

Kellie, 25, strutted her stuff in the frock at the 2012 CMT Music Awards at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on June 6. She paired the piece with platform shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti and gold bangles, and wore her wavy hair down .

So, who rocked? Weigh in ya'll!

COMING SOON: Sheddin’...The Kings of Comedy Meet The Cosbys

Bebop meets hip hop as generations collide in Horizon Theatre’s second world premiere of the season, Sheddin’ by Thomas W. Jones II. The raucous comedy set in an Atlanta backyard follows up on Jones’ 2009 hit A Cool Drink A Water. Sheddin’ kicks off July 13th and continues for a seven-week run through August 19th.

This raucous comedy set in an Atlanta backyard follows up on Horizon’s 2009 hit A Cool Drink A Water. Empty nesters Walt and Ruthie are throwing a homecoming party for son Trane, a rising hip hop star. But Walt and his buddies aren’t just celebrating – they’re hatching a plan to ride Trane’s wave of success and recapture their own musical dreams. Bebop and hip hop “take it to the woodshed,” as the jazzmen say, to sharpen their music, friendship, and futures. A comic reuniting of generations and those who hunger to still have a place.

Sheddin’ runs July 13 – August 19, 2012. Performances are Wednesday through Friday at 8:00 PM, Saturday at 3:00 PM and 8:30 PM, and Sunday at 5:00 PM. Tickets start at $20. Tickets and information are available at horizontheatre.com or 404.584.7450.
