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."

This is a Nice, Nice Katy Perry ... What Happened?

Sep 2 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

Aww, guys, look, it's 17-year-old Katy Perry on tour with her Christian rock band back in 2001! The footage is sweet, endearing, and makes you wonder what actually happened (no, scratch that -- we know what happened: it was John Mayer and the influence of that slimy, grimy Madonna; that's what). In the above never-before-seen footage of Katy that was filmed for a press kit, and in the video, you can see her play coy, see her be bashful, see her be nervous, and ab ...

Rihanna Celebrated Labor Day Nearly Naked

Rihanna is no stranger to skimpy outfits and she may be the only girl in the world that can make binoculars look sexy. It looks like she was sippin’ wine on a yacht on a beautiful body of water while catching plenty of rays. Personally, I’d like to say thank you to Ri for posting these pictures on her Twitter page.

Why Tinder-izing Your Dating Game Is Good For You

Sep 1 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: Houston's Hot Hits

This app has been around for a few months and it seems that EVERY single person I talk to has heard of the app and like it quite a bit. It’s much different than Match.com or Eharmony.com because it doesn’t require a questionnaire that feels like it’s 900 pages long. I appreciate their thorough efforts but dating shouldn’t be so much thinking…at least not to me. Tinder cuts out all the “pre-match” thinking and cuts right to the chase. Are you attracted to this person ...

Where Is Pop's Response to Ferguson?

"For the past two weeks, the eyes of the nation have been on Ferguson, Missouri," Common said at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (Aug. 24), unexpectedly puncturing the carefree atmosphere of the ceremony for about 90 seconds. The veteran rapper was tasked with addressing real-world horror on a night of ass-shaking performances and who-wore-it-best debates; wearing a mocha sweatshirt and a grim expression, Common spoke slowly and deliberately, a world-weary fath ...
