Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige

Tyler Perry has chosen R&B superstar and nine-time Grammy winner Mary J. Blige to co-star in his next film, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself,” due in theaters on Sept. 11.

Blige joins cast member Taraji P. Henson, who was nominated for an Oscar this year. The singer will play a nightclub manager and singer who is good friends with Henson’s character.

The Lionsgate film, adapted from Perry’s stage play, is currently shooting at his Atlanta Studios. The venerable and money-making Madea will also make an appearance, says the Hollywood Reporter.

As for her acting resume, Blige recently did a guest stint on “Entourage.” Her last big-screen appearance was in the 2001 drama “Prison Song.”

Blige is coming off two sold-out national tours and is in the studio working on a new album due out this year from Interscope Geffen. The singer already has eight platinum or multiplatinum albums.




Los Angeles will be saturated with Prince this week as he promotes the March 29th release of his albums “LOtUSFLOW3R” and “MPLSoUND.”

Live sports and entertainment complex.

Doors for the first show, at Nokia Theater L.A. Live will open at 5:30 p.m.; doors at the Conga Room open at 8 p.m.; and doors at Club Nokia will open at 11:30 p.m.

Fans will be required to purchase separate tickets for each concert. Tickets go on sale March 22 via and for $77 (plus additional fees).


Ellen Degeneres

Ellen Degeneres

Persistence has paid off for Ellen DeGeneres. After months of campaigning to appear on the cover of Oprah Winfrey’s O magazine, DeGeneres got her wish on Friday when the mighty O herself delivered the news in a surprise live video appearance.

Ellen’s attempt to score an O cover became a popular segment on her talk show. The comedian would show various versions of the latest O issue with her image photo-shopped into the picture. In one cover, Ellen sits in the palm of Winfrey’s outstretched hand. In another, Ellen peeks out from underneath her dress.

Winfrey said she was reluctant to make the offer, only because the Ellen-enhanced versions of her cover were so humorous. Oprah said she was serious about her offer, which comes on the heels of first lady Michelle Obama’s appearance on the cover. Ellen will become the second person other than Winfrey to appear on the O cover.
