  1. AP - If there was ever any doubt, it's gone now. Jennifer Lopez will be back at the judge's panel for the 11th season of "American Idol." [url=http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/rss/music/*http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110817/ap_en_mu/us_tv_american_idol_lopez]View the full article[/url]
  2. Sultry tennis superstar Serena Williams has had several confirmed and rumored high profile relationships, including being linked with director Brett Ratner and rapper-actor Common. The latest news to hit the mill was a rumor stating that Canadian rapper Drake and Williams were an item. After Drizzy was seen supporting Serena at a recent tennis match in his hometown of Toronto and news surfacing of the pair vacationing in Florida, the Web was ablaze with chatter of the two being a new power couple. Serena Williams addressed the talk of her and Drake dating, stating there’s no connection beyond friendship between them. “Oh, man. Really?” she said to the Toronto Star. “We’re really close friends. Can’t be too close to a friend nowadays, I guess.” And the closeness is definitely confirmed with several photos of the pair in South Florida playing tennis together and the rapper showing vocal support for his friend on the court. Drake has kept cool up to the moment about the connection and has neither confirmed or denied the rumor. However, reports show that Drizzy has playfully flirted with Serena via Twitter and a candid webcam photo seemingly displayed a closeness that supports the tennis player’s statements regarding their friendship. Drake has recently been rumored to be to have been romantically linked to Barbadian pop star Rihanna, amid news that sources reported the pair was dating. There were also photos of the two dining together in Drake’s home country last month that surfaced on the Web. Drake is preparing his Young Money sophomore release Take Care for an October release – the rapper’s birthday month. Must be nice to be Drake these days. What do you think of these latest rumors involving Drake? Do you think he’s dating Serena Williams or Rihanna? Tweet to us at @MTVRapFix or leave us a comment below.

  5. Texting has become more than a fad for some tweens and teens; it's become a lifestyle. MTV's new documentary "Thumbs" goes below the surface on the trend to try to crack into the secret world of texting. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/17/thumbs-texting-documentary/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:682397?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] The movie follows a group of six teens who entered [url="http://www.facebook.com/lgtexterus?sk=info"]LG's U.S. National Texting Championship[/url] to try to earn the title of fastest texter in the United States, and a whopping $50,000 prize. Academy Award-winning director Bill Couturié was intrigued by the texting phenomenon and, after being approached by producer Michael Tollin, decided to create the first documentary showcasing the trend. MTV News got on the phone with Couturié to find out more about the film and what he learned about texting in the process. "I didn't know what I would find. And what I found is these kids are straight A students," he said. He added that parenting plays a major part in the addictive element of texting, saying that "like any kids with anything, you've got to give them some rules." Couturié was first intrigued by the project when he noticed his own 14-year-old son would be sitting there texting away with "thumbs flying." Many adults have a prejudice against kids texting too much, but Couturié found that for the most part that is unwarranted. "It's a generation gap thing," he explained, stemming from the fact that grown ups believe that if two people aren't talking face to face, they're not communicating, while young kids believe the opposite. It's that connection with their peers that Couturié believes is what draws teens to texting, and to other social networking outlets like Facebook. "Thumbs" centers on six kids between the ages of 13 and 16 who made it to the final 32 competitors in 2010's championship. Of the two guys and four girls he followed, the boys lost in the first round, leading Couturié to proclaim that girls are faster texters. Some of the teens competing could text up to 100 words per minute, which Couturié compared to secretaries being able to type 100 words per minute on their type-writers. But Couturié didn't find any sort of negative connection between teens who could text well and teens who exhibited bad behavior. The winner of 2010's championship, a 13-year-old from Brooklyn named Brianna, actually had the strictest parents of the kids he followed. She wasn't allowed to text at dinner or when doing her homework, never texted in class, and was totally fine with it. "It's a fun movie, it's about kids having a good time, but there's also a little bit of a moral in there that texting can be addictive, but if you just do a minimal amount of parenting, you can take care of it and everyone can have a good time," he explained. The documentary employed a special cell phone program that its subjects downloaded onto their phones that allowed Couturié to keep track of everything they were texting. The conversations occurring via their cell phones will appear in the movie for people to see. "It's kind of like this secret world of texting gets opened up and we get to see that, again, they're just talking like kids. Nothing terrible," Couturié said. "Sometimes they're a little racy, sometimes they're a little inappropriate, but by and large they're just goofing around having a good time."

  10. Until the last man, they'll fight — so say they all in the new trailer for "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/424417/moviemain.jhtml"]Red Tails[/url]," the World War II aerial combat drama from producer [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/88665/personmain.jhtml"]George Lucas[/url]. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/17/red-tails-trailer-poster/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:682506?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] An earlier [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/07/29/george-lucas-red-tails-trailer/"]"Red Tails" trailer[/url] arrived online late last month, and today, we've got an [b]exclusive[/b] first look at the movie's latest trailer, as well as a brand new poster for the film. Watch the trailer in the video above, and click past the jump to see the latest poster! In "Red Tails," moviegoers are offered the chance to look back at an important slice of American history with the moving true story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a collection of segregated black pilots who were given second-rate planes and deadly missions after being shipped out to combat during World War II. But despite their hand-me-down supplies and their dangerous assignments, the Tuskegee men literally and figuratively rose to the occasion time and time again in the blood soaked skies of the second world war. "Red Tails" boasts an all-star cast with its talented roster including Oscar-nominated actor and former "Iron Man" hero [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/29661/personmain.jhtml"]Terrence Howard[/url], "Breaking Bad" badass [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/13908/personmain.jhtml"]Bryan Cranston[/url], Oscar winner [url="v"]Cuba Gooding Jr[/url], [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2009/04/06/cuba-gooding-jr-joining-method-man-for-george-lucas-wwii-epic-red-tails/"]Method Man[/url], Ne-Yo and Nate Parker. The movie is directed by "Treme's" [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/287835/personmain.jhtml"]Anthony Hemingway[/url] and godfathered by George Lucas, the "Star Wars" mastermind who has had his vision for "Red Tails" in development for over two decades now. It looks like good things come to those who wait, based on the new trailer and — as you can see below — the latest poster for the movie.

  11. There was a time where the plot for [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/242480/personmain.jhtml"]Tarsem Singh[/url]'s latest flick "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/450220/moviemain.jhtml"]Immortals[/url]" was under wraps, but that time is no more. The latest trailer for the stylized retelling of Greek mythology lays the story out clearly for the ill-informed. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/17/immortals-trailer-kellan-lutz/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:682510?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] No question that this is the longest "Immortals" teaser to date, clocking in at two and a half minutes in length. The narrator sets the stage for the battle between humans and the Greek gods: once there was a war in heaven, and the victors called themselves gods and named the losers as titans. Now evil King Hyperion ([url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/54512/personmain.jhtml"]Mickey Rourke[/url]) is trying to release the titans and defeat the gods, and it's up to mortal Theseus ([url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/267308/personmain.jhtml"]Henry Cavill[/url]) to stop him. Making their debuts in the video are [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/438091/personmain.jhtml"]Kellan Lutz[/url], Corey Sevier and [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/1050687/personmain.jhtml"]Isabel Lucas[/url] as Poseidon, Apollo and Athena, respectively. Much like [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/07/29/battleship-trailer-commentary/"]Rihanna in the "Battleship" trailer[/url], though, Lutz only gets a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance in the trailer. Fortunately, Cavill, [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/1056345/personmain.jhtml"]Frieda Pinto [/url]and [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/1113137/personmain.jhtml"]Luke Evans[/url] get plenty of screen time this time around. But what really sits at the forefront of this latest "Immortals" teaser is Singh's distinct visual style. Universal isn't pandering to the unconvinced in this trailer. Instead they're selling the message, "You get what you pay for." Those who aren't familiar with Singh's previous work in "The Fall" and "The Cell" might liken the slo-mo CGI-heavy action with "300," but Singh is his own special brand of stylization. And it's that element of this flick that has this Movies Blog writer counting down the days until "Immortals" hits theaters November 11. [i]What do you think of the new "Immortals" trailer?

  12. Canadian superstar and Young Money fixture Drake has been slowly preparing his fans for his sophomore album Take Care but continues to make headlines with leaked singles and collaborations with YM boss Lil Wayne and appearing onstage with label mate Nicki Minaj in his native Toronto. The 24-year-old heartthrob has once again made news with the recent announcement Drake receiving a high honor due to his work in entertainment.

  20. Eminem has been an iconic figure in the rap game since the Detroit bad boy with the blistering rhymes dropped his smash Shady/Aftermath debut album The Slim Shady LP back in 1999. In 2011, the Michigan wordsmith continues to sell plenty of albums, with 2010's Recovery still blazing the charts. With two diamond-selling albums, sell-out festival spot dates and a side project with longtime friend Royce Da 5’9", Eminem and his fame have grown tall while many of his peers can only dream of his fame. Eminem now has another accomplishment to add to his towering résumé with his recent crowning as “King of Hip-Hop” by Rolling Stone magazine, which did a recent tally of rap powerhouse acts and their importance to the genre. Although Rolling Stone is just one opinion, albeit a highly visible one, many fans are torn by the magazine’s nod to Eminem. On one side, fans acknowledge the impact and ability of Eminem, while the others state that sales too heavily influenced the crowning. Over on Twitter, the debate about Em's new title has been a heated one. “S/O to @Eminem for the cover of @RollingStone & being crowned the King of Hip Hop...in my opinion its well deserved...,” tweeted a supportive @NastashNafrini, while user @LexLamont disputed, “No. Dope as he is, he doesn't have one largely undisputed classic album. I think Rolling Stone judged on sales and influence tho.” Fellow Hip-Hop King Jay-Z had his name come up a bit with fans as well. “In 2003, yes. Today, Jay has the crown,” tweeted Hov fan @kobe42085. As fans draw lines in the sand over who they feel deserves the top nod, Nicki Minaj fans are happy as the Young Money diva was the only female to be included on the Kings list. “It just dawned on me. Slim Shady & Roman (Eminem & Nicki Minaj) are the 'King & Queen of Hip-Hop.' Dubbed by ROLLING STONE!!!!” tweeted a stoked @turkBISH in support. Eminem should be used to this manner of high praise by now, as MTV last year dubbed the Detroit star the Hottest MC in the Game, edging out Jay-Z and Kanye West, who came in at #2 and #3 respectively. Will Eminem have a repeat showing in 2011? Stay tuned. Did Eminem deserve the King of Hip-Hop crown? If not, who do you think should have gotten the nod?

  21. Last week, following the premiere of Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Otis" video, many viewers walked away from the screen asking the same question: "Who was the little guy in the back in the suit and shades pushing the chopped-up Maybach?" Some laughed after suggesting it was Kanye's right-hand man and G.O.O.D. Music executive Don C, but after a good stare it was confirmed the individual stunting alongside 'Ye was none other than actor Aziz Ansari. Aziz's appearance in the lead video, and potentially sole visual, from WTT was actually a no-brainer, considering the actor's relationship with West. The moonlighting comedian rang in the New Year with the Throne, and last year, Ansari electrified a Comedy Central crowd when he reflected on meeting the Louis Vuitton Don, an encounter that resulted in Aziz performing an impromptu stand-up routine in the rapper's living room in front of a small crowd. "My favorite part was when every once in a while, somebody would be in the kitchen making a drink and they'd make a little noise, and Kanye would jump up and yell, 'Yo! Shut the f--- up! Homey's over here trying to tell some jokes!' " Ansari recalled during the comedy special. "Which is the best thing anybody has ever yelled at a comedy show." Just in time for his new film "30 Minutes or Less," Aziz spoke with Mr. Carter's digital homebase, Life + Times, during a Q&A session, speaking on his two minutes of fame as hip-hop's newest hypeman. Life+Times: Your new movie is in theaters and you make a cameo appearance in a JAY Z/Kanye video, are you having your best summer ever? Aziz Ansari: It’s been pretty good. I also had a really tasty donut for breakfast. Things are going my way. L+T: There’s a part in the “Otis” video where you seem to be pantomiming Ye’s lyrics as he stands on top of that Maybach, did [director] Spike [Jonze] tell you to do that or were you just in the moment? AA: Spike just told me to be their hypeman and do whatever I felt like doing, so that was in the moment. L+T: Did you receive a custom Watch the Throne commemorative watch? AA: Nah, that was just for the producers. I got a Watch the Throne commemorative beer cozy made for myself though. Were you surprised to see Aziz in the "Otis" video? Let us know in the comments.
