E on the Z


Thursday July 18

Eminem could have had the lead in the upcoming sci-fi movie "Elysium", but he passed because it couldn't be filmed in Detroit. The director Neill Blomkamp says Eminem wanted to do the movie, but only if it was filmed in his hometown. Since that wasn't possible, Blomkamp went to his next choice, Matt Damon, who took the part. "Elysium" opens August 9th.

Emma Roberts was arrested earlier this month for beating up her boyfriend Evan Peters, but she was released because he didn't want charges pressed. Evan reportedly had been bitten, and also had a bloody nose but sources say both of them were getting physical with each other.

Rihanna showed up an hour late again for her concert in Manchester UK Tuesday night. A fan tossed a gift onstage, but she chewed him out for doing it, so the entire crowd started pelting her with food! She said, I knew you all were gonna be crazy, but f***! This is the next level!"

So far, the American Idol Tour doesn't seem to be doing what producers had hoped. The tour starts this weekend, but a quarter of the dates have been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. There are only 30 dates, but none of them have sold out. Not to mention, the winner Candice Glover keeps getting her album release date pushed back. As of now, "Music Speaks" will be out October 8th.
