Mark your calendars, "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans. The film will hit theaters on Friday, August 1, 2014! Focus Features Tweeted, "Charlie Tango you are cleared for landing. August 1, 2014," an obvious reference to Christian Grey's helicopter. We know that a dude named Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing, but we still don't know who will play Christian or Anastasia? Rumors were running rampant earlier this week that Robert Pattinson is somehow involved with the project after he threw a birthday party for a friend and Fifty Shades author E.L. James was in attendance. We've heard Alex Pettyfer is still in the running as well as Ian Somerhalder and Ryan Gosling.
I guess Sandra Bullock is too sweet to play mean Miss Hannigan in the "Annie" remake produced by Jay-Z and Will Smith.

"Annie" is set for Christmas Day 2014.

However, the entire cast of "That 70's Show" better be invited!
Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was denied bail yesterday, with a judge saying that the murder case against him was "circumstantial, to be sure, but very, very strong." And as if that weren't bad enough, reports broke that police are also investigating him in another homicide. Police say they're looking into the possibility that Hernandez was involved in a drive-by shooting in Boston last year that left two people dead. And once again, the killing may have been nightclub-related; just hours earlier witnesses saw Hernandez getting into an altercation with the victims at a nearby nightclub.
Justin Bieber was recently spotted getting cozy with some chick. Well, it turns out she's a married chick. Her name is Jordan Ozuna and she's a model and former Hooters waitress. And while she's married to a guy in the Coast Guard, they've been separated for about a year.
Miley Cyrus went on "Good Morning America" yesterday to promote her new song, "We Can't Stop" but let's be honest, no one cares. Everybody just wants to know what's the deal with the ring. They want to know if she and Liam Hemsworth will ever get married and what does it mean since she's wearing the ring? All she would say is, "I'm wearing the ring aren't I?" Really, Miley? Can you give a better answer than that? Come on!
Paula Deen did her make-good interview with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show yesterday.

If you've been waiting to see Chris Brown get tossed in the slammer, this could be your opportunity. He's been charged with a hit-and-run following an incident last month in which he allegedly rear-ended someone and gave the other driver fake insurance info, leaving the scene without offering up his driver's license number. The charges themselves (he was also charged with driving without a valid license) carry a maximum one-year sentence, but if the judge in the Rihanna assault case decides Brown violated his probation, he could go to jail for four years. But his Twitter page tells a different story, including the pictures. He has changed his profile pic to the "damage" of the accident.
Amanda Bynes just can’t leave Drake alone on Twitter. She recently announced that she hoped to "become friends" with the rapper "instead of smashing him," once again used bizarre terms to describe her on-again, off-again crush in a post on Tuesday.

Angelina Jolie wants a classy wedding. (Or, as one source puts it, she "wants the whole affair to be very civilized") That means some of Brad Pitt's best friends won't be invited. Namely Jonah Hill, Quentin Tarantino, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, all of whom enjoy drinking a little too much. Even George Clooney, Brad's BFF, is getting a warning attached to his invite that he needs to keep things under control. Angelina is afraid the group will hit the open bar early on and turn it up!

Aaron fought them off, but got bruised-up in the process. His show went on as planned. See the pictures of his face HERE!

I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."

You've heard of Kidz Bop before, right? They do cover songs for the most popular songs, but they're performed by kids. It's usually the stuff that's "safe" to sing about, but they've done a version of Macklemore's "Thrift Shop." The song is scrubbed clean of profanity, naturally "f***ing awesome" becomes "really awesome," etc., but the real fun comes at the lyrical rearrangements. Such as: "Walk up to the club like, 'What up? I got a big c***!'" becomes "Walk up to the club like, 'What up? I got a hit song!'" and "Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets" becomes "Probably should of washed this, smells like my baseball cleats" with his whispered lyric "pisssssss" replaced by a drawn out "Ewwwwww!"
