Nicole Scherzinger to Sign $5 Million Deal

Nicole ScherzingerNicole Scherzinger is set to sign a $5 million record deal.

The X Factor judge, who first shot to fame with the Pussycat Dolls, will release her new solo album with Sony next year and is expected to rake in millions more from a string of commercial jobs.

"Nicole was the most popular member of the X Factor panel this year and is the real winner in terms of bankability. She is set to sign with Sony and can't wait to get back to her music, which took a back seat during X Factor," a source said.

Nicole also has new multi-million pound deals with fashion range Missguided and Herbal Essences on the cards.

It is set to be a big year for the 35-year-old but her biggest decision will be whether to return to the ITV talent show or stay focused on her music career. "She's torn between the two - she loves the show and loves working on it but is conflicted. She is taking time out at home with her family to decide what move is best to make," the source added.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rumors,

Emma WatsonEmma Watson has turned down films to focus on her university exams.

The 23-year-old actress is studying English at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where she will be sitting her finals and needs to concentrate on her academic success. "Emma is in demand with Hollywood directors but has so much to focus on with her studies, that she has had to pass on a few things - she simply can't do everything. It's tough but she believes it was the right thing," a source said.

Emma was catapulted to the spotlight as school girl Hermione Granger in the film adaptations of Harry Potter where she starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). She and the other teenage stars were tutored on set for up to five hours a day, and despite having to balance her filming schedule with academics the blonde beauty managed to achieve eight A+ and two A grades during her GCSE school examinations - which are taken by students aged 14-16 in secondary education across the United Kingdom.

Miley Cyrus’ Burglary an Inside Job?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Rumors,

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus' burglary is believed to be an inside job.

The "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker was shaken up after an intruder got into her house on her birthday last month and stole around $100,000 worth of jewelry. She wasn't in the house at the time but - according to TMZ - police believe the culprit may be someone she knows.

The gossip website explained surveillance footage doesn't show anyone suspicious entering or leaving her Studio City home - plus there is no sign of forced entry. Police are now looking at a number of workers who were at the house while she was away.

Miley will have been glad to not be at home when the intruder got in, but - while she might be scared of being burgled - it seems she thinks some celebrities are actually scared of her risque reputation. "You don't have to be signed to Disney Channel to be put in a box, or to be rated PG. I'm with artists sometimes, and I'll take a picture of them or whatever. They make me delete it... I don't have a bunch of celeb friends, because I feel like some of them are a little scared of the association. This is terrible."

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Rumors,

Selena GomezFollowing Selena Gomez's announcement last week in which she told her fans that she would be canceling her Australian Stars Dance tour, fans were quick to speculate that it was due to exhaustion from her demanding career. Sources, however, have revealed that the former Disney star might actually be suffering from the autoimmune disease Lupus.

The insiders claim that the 21-year-old actress-singer was diagnosed with the illness a couple years ago and has managed to live with it since, but the disease's symptoms have taken their toll on Gomez recently.

"Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now. She knows that she needs to take some time to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life," a source close to Gomez said.

Gomez's reps have yet to comment on the news, but from the looks of her latest Instagram photos - which see her among various family members for the holidays - she looks like she's doing well!

Brad Pitt Films Cameo for ‘21 Jump Street’ Sequel

Jonah Hill and Brad PittHow could the sequel to 21 Jump Street top its predecessor's Johnny Depp cameo? Simple: cast Brad Pitt!

The 12 Years a Slave producer and star is joining forces (for a little screen time, anyway) with his Moneyball co-star Jonah Hill in the upcoming sequel to the 2012 film adaptation of the 80's television series. Though Pitt is known for dramas and thrillers, funnyman Hill was able to coax the 50-year-old star into appearing in 22 Jump Street.

Pitt's cameo sees him as a lowly librarian when Hill and co-star Channing Tatum come across him as he puts on a poor acting performance. "The scene is very funny and the guys had a great time doing it. Brad was a great sport and the producers were thrilled that he took part," an insider said. While the proverbial beans seem to have been spilled with Pitt's cameo (unlike Depp's, which was suspected but never confirmed prior to release of the first film), the Oscar-nominated actor is sure to still deliver the laughs.

22 Jump Street hits theaters on June 13, 2014.
