Beyonce’s filming has been Postponed due to Baby Bump?

Beyonce debuted her baby bump at last night’s VMAs and while much of the world was shocked at the big reveal and subsequently elated for the diva, the career consequences of the bun in the oven are starting to materialize. Deadlinereports that the shooting schedule for the Beyonce-starring remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ could be pushed back in order to accommodate the star’s delicate condition.

Deadline revealed that Warner Bros. was hoping to begin production on the film, to be directed by Clint Eastwood, by February of 2012. With Beyonce expecting, that goal seems highly unrealistic. However, the star’s pregnancy does have an upside in that it gives the studio more time to find a suitable male lead. Leonard DiCaprio was the director’s first choice, but he is not available. Other names that were bandied about to play opposite of Bey were Will Smith and Christian Bale. While both actors would probably have great onscreen chemistry with Beyonce, nothing has been settled or set in stone yet.

This film could be the one that puts her on the map, movie-wise. She is already a musical superstar and her film roles, as Etta James in ‘Cadillac Records’ and as Deena Jones in ‘Dreamgirls,’ were respectable turns, but failed to transform her into a bonafide movie star.

Congrats once again to Bey and hubby Jay-Z as they await the birth of their first child. We found it adorable how Beyonce kept cradling her tummy while posing on the black carpet and while performing. It was maternal instinct, no doubt. She also didn’t miss a step or a beat during her performance, despite her delicate condition.

After getting treatment for bulimia, Demi Lovato has been sporting a healthier figure, but some criticized the 19-year-old for her weight after appearing at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Despite their negative words, the singer is not letting the haters get the best of her.

“I’ve gained weight. Get over it,” she tweeted last night. “That’s what happens when you get out of treatment for AN EATING DISORDER.”

Lovato subsequently deleted the message, but added: “Guess what? I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight you obviously aren’t. : ) #UNBROKEN.”

The ‘Skyscraper’ singer wore a curve-hugging mini-dress to the VMAs where she presented the award for Best Collaboration with Chord Overstreet. After taking to Twitter to fight back against critics, actress Ashley Greene, sent Lovato a supportive message, reminding the former ‘Sonny With a Chance’ star that she’s “beautiful.”

“This is why you’re my friend,” Lovato replied to the ‘Twilight’ star. “Thank you girl.” It looks like Joe Jonas‘ exes are getting along just fine.

In October 2010, Lovato entered a treatment facility to address her physical and emotional issues. She left the center in January and has since released her chart-topping single, ‘Skyscraper,’ and recorded her third full-length album, ‘Unbroken,’ which is set to drop on Sept. 20.

While the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards turned out to be Katy Perry‘s night, she still treated the big event like a public date night with husband Russell Brand. After all, the pink-haired ‘Firework’ singer did need some help carrying her two Moonmen statues home, right?

Perry, 26, married Brand, 36, just under a year ago and the newlyweds AKA Hollywood power couple remain inseparable. Us Weekly reports that “Russell and Katy were by each other’s side all night,” with a source confirming that the lovey dovey couple “had their arms linked and their hands intertwined. They seemed really happy and were just smiling and beaming at each other.”

The Brands’ PDAs extended beyond the clasping of hands and arms. “They were whispering in each other’s ears and giggling — it looked like they had private jokes to share,” the source also said. This doesn’t seem like any sort of “revelation,” as Perry and Brand are young, happy and madly in love enough to be married!

However, Brand did beam with pride when his bride notched her first award. The source said the comedian looked “genuinely touched, almost tearful,” while Perry was just as proud of her man when he took the stage to deliver an impassioned speech about his late friend Amy Winehouse before the musical tribute to the singer.

Perry even addressed how Brand handled the tribute, telling the press that “not only was he providing the beautiful color palette that Amy was, but also providing a realistic point of view and giving hope to anybody out there that felt like they needed hope.”

Perry paid her hubby another compliment, saying, “I thought it was really well-rounded and smart, and that’s why I married him. He is smart and I learn a lot.”

Aw, you guys! So in love, so fashionable and so famous.

Britney Spears is putting the kibosh on all of the rumors surrounding her next single off of ‘Femme Fatale.’ Even though people have talked about ‘(Drop Dead) Beautiful,’ ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Trouble for Me’ being released next, Spears herself confirmed to MTV that she is actually releasing ‘Criminal’ as her next single and video.

During the interview, a reporter asked Spears if she had “any plans for a new video [or] another single.” A smiley Spears coyly replied, “Yes … I don’t know if I’m at liberty to tell, but, um, I will anyways. It’s ‘Criminal.’” Spears then went on to explain why she chose the song as her next single, trying to find the words as she said, “Actually, when I first heard it, it’s just different … Nothing I’ve heard like this before.”

According to MuuMuse, Spears’ fans were able to take a poll on Facebook in order to vote on which song Brit should release as her next single. ‘Criminal’ won over ‘Inside Out’ and ‘(Drop Dead) Beautiful’ on the poll, and what Britney fans want, Britney fans get. We can’t wait to see what the video will look like! More dancing this time, please!

Lauren Alaina Accepts Marriage Proposal

Sorry, guys. It looks like Lauren Alaina is off the market — well, she was for one day, at least. The ‘American Idol‘ runner-up accepted a “marriage” proposal from a 17-year-old fan, with the stipulation that it was just for the night.

During a meet-and-greet behind the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. on Saturday, Zack Tremblay dropped to one knee and asked Alaina to marry him. The ‘Idol’ alum looked legitimately shocked, and paced a bit while looking at her adorer, who sadly didn’t have a ring to offer her.

“I’ll marry you for tonight. Just for the night,” she bartered in front of a small crowd. “I’ve never had this happen before.”

The 16-year-old singer was in town for the American Idols Live! tour, along with her fellow Season 10 contestants. Tremblay was one of many fans who waited to catch a glimpse of the star behind the venue. “I think I just died,” the North Providence native said to his friends before posing for pictures with his temporary bride.

Although their relationship was fleeting, the young fan had high hopes. “If today goes well,” he added, “why not for the rest of my life?” Hey, it doesn’t hurt to dream.

Hillary Duff get’s $100,000 for not starring in  film!! Whoooaa

Hilary Duff

Now that’s what we call a severance package!

According to sources, Hilary Duff has a play-or-pay contract. That means, if she doesn’t end up working after the contracts are signed, she still gets paid.

So after being fired from Bonnie and Clyde for being all preggers she’s been paid $100,000. Maybe she’ll set up a college fund for the baby.

As far as a replacement is concerned, Amanda Seyfried was approached but turned down the role.

When asked about the whole situation, Duff simply replied:

“I dont wanna give them any more press than they’ve already gotten off me … I think ‘baby’ is a little bit more exciting.”

While getting $100,000 for getting FIRED is always exciting, we can definitely agree, a new baby is super exciting.

This is the first time I’m celebrating the Hari Raya celebration as a RedFM Jock.

So when we were told we had to do a photoshoot wearing Baju Melayu. That gave me a very good reason to go and buy a kebaya! In fact this would be my very first kebaya..

Anyway so i went a short mini goose chase to find a suitable one, and I was real glad when i found one that i liked. Wheeee so i’ve got my very own for this festive season!
