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."

Gwyneth Paltrow Did The Ice Bucket Challenge In A Bikini, Nominates Chris Martin

Aug 21 2014 12:05pm CDT | Source: The Superficial

With the exception of Katy Perry, and probably a few others I’m too lazy to Google, most celebrities recognize this is for charity and have been keeping their Ice Bucket Challenges relatively tame which is probably why I hate them so much. Except here’s Gwyneth Paltrow doing hers in a bikini because she has the ass of a 22-year-old stripper, you guys. What is she supposed to do? Wear pants? On top of that, she nominated Chris Martin because their unconscious coupling is ...

It's not just Ariana Grande; female pop stars are becoming terrible dancers (Mega Post)

Aug 21 2014 10:17am CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Last week, Ariana Grande, an overachieving tribute from District 4, unleashed a video for her song "Break Free." The zippy track is the second dance hit Grande released this summer, coming on the heels of "Problem."But if you look at this video (and the video for "Problem"), you'll notice an utter lack of dancing, despite the songs being impossibly dance-y tunes. Instead, there are lot of s ...
