When he traveled to the year 2015 in ‘Back to the Future Part II,’ Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, saw plenty of amazing things, and a sizable portion of them — including hoverboards, flying cars, and, thankfully, ‘Jaws Part 19′ — haven’t come to pass.
But thanks to the hardworking scientists in the Nike labs, we now have the glowing, self-lacing sneakers that Marty wore in the future — and they’re being auctioned off to benefit Parkinson’s disease research. UK rapper Tinie Tempah got his hands on the first pair, which set him back the eye-popping sum of $37,500.
It’s been a long time since Will Smith focused on his music career — and even longer since his days as a chart-topping, multiplatinum hitmaker.
But for Smith, who achieved fame in the ’80s and early ’90s as one half of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince before launching a wildly successful acting career — and then returning to music with 1997′s massive ‘Big Willie Style’ — a comeback is never out of the question. And it sounds like that might be exactly what he’s planning.
Jay-Z has staked a claim to hip-hop royalty for over a decade — and while his recent recording and touring partner, Kanye West, hasn’t been at the game for quite as long, he’s got his own piece of the crown.
The idea of a movie based on the board game Battleship might seem odd enough even without director Peter Berg deciding to throw aliens into the mix. But adding R&B siren (and acting novice) Rihanna to the cast? What kind of ship is this, anyway?
Performing at the Big Chill music festival in England Saturday night, West railed against those who judge him. “I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m f****** insane, like I’m Hitler,” he said, eliciting a light chorus of boos from the crowd.
Big-voiced rock icon Meat Loaf has announced plans for a holiday album — and in his typically over-the-top style, he’s going all out. Why settle for a quiet night of carols when you can sing along with some of country’s biggest stars?
Between touring, their prolific recording schedule, and their gig as the house band for ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,’ the Roots might be the hardest-working band in show business — and they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.
