The studio where Tyler Perry's movies are shot caught fire last night. A three-alarm blaze broke out around 9 PM on Tuesday at the Atlanta complex, which houses five soundstages, a backlot, and Perry's offices. Luckily, firefighters were able to bring the flames under control after about an hour and no injuries were reported.
Earlier this week, British boy band The Wanted called Christina Aguilera names, and now they're going after Britney Spears. During a different radio interview, the boys claimed that they weren't allowed to even look at the pop star when they opened for her. The group complained that they were told to turn and face the wall as she passed by, though one member backtracked and said that she was "so down-to-earth" when they met her. Since the interview, a rep for Spears released a statement saying, "What's even more interesting than the false allegations they made is the fact that they have claimed to be picked on by two female pop stars in just a few days. Look out Lady Gaga — there are still three days left this week."
Twilight heartthrob Taylor Lautner has been spotted out and about with a new lady, but it's not another starlet. Instead, he seems to be rekindling a romance with his high school sweetheart Sara Hicks, who is now a cheerleader for the LA Clippers.
"Elegant" and "sophisticated" may not describe a typical one-year-old's birthday party, but then Mariah Carey probably isn't a typical mom. She and husband Nick Cannon apparently went all out for Monroe and Moroccan's first birthday, celebrating in Paris with custom-made pastries and formal attire. No backyard party with a kiddie pool and cake for those kids.
It looks like Ashton Kutcher is in for a second season of Two and a Half Men, and will reportedly be earning $700k per episode. Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones will be returning for the tenth season, as well.
