Seriously? A Miss USA winner hasn’t been able to find a man to date?
Believe it or not, it’s true!
Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih, a 26-year-old Lebanese beauty from Michigan, hasn’t been able to find Mr. Right on her own, so she’s hoping she might be able to change her luck on national TV. This Thursday night, she’ll be a contestant on Fox’s hit dating show, “The Choice,” along with Carmen Electra, Sophie Monk, and model Hope Dworaczyk.
When Fox All Access host Chris Leary got to spend a few minutes backstage at the “American Idol” finale with Rima Fakih, as you’ll see in this video, he found out exactly why these beautiful women haven’t been able to meet their soulmates yet.
“The Choice” airs Thursday night at 9/8c after “Take Me Out” on Fox.
At the age of 21, Ed Sheeran has already conquered the UK music charts, with a platinum-selling album and a string of four consecutive Top 10 hits.
Now, he’s set his sights on America, and he’s already won over a lot of fans — including Taylor Swift, who’s asked him to help her write songs for her next album!
His first single, “The A Team,” has already started to climb the charts — and if you haven’t heard it, well, it has absolutely nothing to do with the TV show or movie. It is, however, a powerful, moving song — and if you haven’t seen the live rendition he recorded especially for us, you should.
Along with the live session, Ed talked with Fox All Access host Chris Leary about the song and its inspirations, along with plenty of other things, including his beginnings as a musician, his work ethic, and how he landed some prime gigs during his very first visit to Los Angeles.
So take a look at the interview, then check out Ed Sheeran’s debut album, “+.”
In the vein of Justin Bieber’s documentary film Never Say Never, Katy Perry is following in his footsteps with her new film, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which follows her life on and off the stage. Yesterday in London, Perry surprised a young audience with an appearance and a screening of the film. Fans were surprised by Perry’s showing. Take a look at the video and you will see why Perry is one of the top (and nicest) superstars in the world.
Quentin Tarantino has long expressed his love for Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone, the director behind such Westerns as Once Upon A Time in the West, A Fistful of Dollars, and The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Echoes of Leone’s operatic, visual style and punchy dialogue can be found in most of Tarantino’s work, most notably in Tarantino’s two Kill Bill films and Inglourious Basterds.
The trailer to Django Unchained, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, and Christoph Waltz, looks terrific, and it’s great to see Tarantino getting the chance to direct his own Western. Let us know what you think.
This week FOX premieres two new dating shows, TAKE ME OUT and THE CHOICE.
In TAKE ME OUT, hosted by actor/comedian George Lopez, 30 single beautiful women are introduced to several bachelors one at a time. Each woman stands at a lighted podium with a switch that controls her fate for a date: if she likes the looks of the guy, she keeps her light on; if she’s not impressed, then it’s lights out and she waits for the next potential Mr. Right. After several rounds, the bachelor takes his pick from the women who still have their lights on and the two enjoy a romantic fantasy date at the TAKE ME OUT resort. The remaining 29, plus one new woman, return during the next game for another chance at finding the guy who will light up their lives.
FOX All Access host Chris Leary caught up with Lopez to get the lowdown on the show, and find out his take on the bachelors. Check it out.
Catch ‘Take Me Out’ and “The Choice” this summer! You’ll find them both on your TV, Thursday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
Sitting at the American Idol Judges’ table may have kept Steven Tyler extremely busy the first half of 2012, but it certainly didn’t prevent him from working on projects of a more personal nature. “We’re ready,,, ripe, ready, and pregnant!” says Tyler. Hearing the ”P” word come out of Tyler’s mouth is certainly worth a jaw drop, until you realize it’s really Tyler’s poetic way of describing the time, energy, and effort it’s taken for Aerosmith’s upcoming summer tour and album to gestate.
It’s no wonder Tyler would use a child bearing term to describe the process, especially with Joe Perry confirming that the album in fact had been started three or four times before.
Regardless of how long it’s taken, the band has their new songs and they’re ready to kick off ”The Global Warming North American Tour” June 16th in Minneapolis, MN. The new Aerosmith album, “Music From Another Dimension” is set to enter the world September 1 (according to Tyler).
We caught up with Steven and Joe who took a few minutes to explain their touring preparation process, describe the spin of the upcoming album, and even shared what they appreicate about each other. Check it out:
Are you ready to hear some new Aerosmith? Planning on experiencing the melt down that is the Global Warming Tour? Share your thoughts!
