Katy Perry to audition for Vin Diesel movie?

Feb 24 2014, 3:26am CST | by

Katy Perry is set to audition for a role in Vin Diesel's new movie.

The 'Roar' hitmaker could be turning her hand at acting after talking to the Hollywood actor-and-producer about a role in the 'xXx' action franchise.

Vin, 46, recently hinted he is considering the songstress - who has previously had a voice role in 'The Smurfs' movies - for the female lead role and it now appears Katy could indeed be in line for the part.

The 'Fast & Furious' star wrote on Facebook last month: "As you know, the new XXX script finally comes in next month...and just this morning people are suggesting Katy Perry as the new X girl. (sic)"

A casting source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Everyone is a bit shocked, but Katy has been told she can come and try out for the part.

"The audition is lined up for the next few weeks - depending on Katy's schedule."

The 29-year-old singer voiced her admiration for Vin after he posted a webcam clip of him dancing to her hit single 'Dark Horse', as well as Beyonce's 'Drunk in Love', last month.

She tweeted: "YES VIN DIESEL (sic)"

Katy wouldn't be the first pop star to catch Vin's eye as he previously asked Rita Ora to make a cameo in last year's 'Fast & Furious 6', which was filmed largely in the 'R.I.P.' hitmaker's hometown London.

The Hollywood star praised Rita, saying: "I was out one night and was introduced to her. We were looking for someone to kick off the most quintessential race in the movie.

"We wanted somebody who represented today's London and have that presence to kick off a race of that style and she was just perfect and she was game to do it. We were lucky to get her and we were lucky that she came in and kicked butt."

Chris Martin and John Mayer: Fighting Over Jennifer Lawrence?!

As you've probably heard, Jennifer Lawrence nude photos were all over the Internet for a little while, until she basically went Katniss on the hacker-pervs (legally speaking) and had every last J-Law nip scrubbed from the Web.

Jessica Lowndes Made A Music Video

Sep 11 2014 9:11am CDT | Source: IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay.com

  Let me preface this by saying Jessica Lowndes is super hot. And that’s pretty much all I know. I know she was on a TV once of something, she might have been in some movies I think. But when you tell a girl she’s beautiful all the time, sometimes she thinks she can do other things. Like right a song called “Silicone In Stereo” that sounds like a Katy Perry B-side. She also made a video. So if you want to watch it with the sound turned down and l ...
