Will Smith plans to tour as rapper next summer
The Fresh Prince returns? Will Smith told Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show that he hopes to hit the road in the summer of 2016 with his former collaborator, DJ Jazzy Jeff. “I’m terrified,” Smith told the radio show. Smith recently appeared on “Fiesta (Remix),” a track by Colombian dance group Bomba Estéreo. It was his first dip back into the music world in more than a decade. Smith says he has about 30 new songs. “I’m shaking the rust off, knocking the dust off,” he told Lowe. In addition to Smith’s football drama, “Concussion,” and his role in super villain flick “Suicide Squad” coming out this year, he says “Bad Boys 3” with Martin Lawrence is set to come out “within the next 12 to 16 months.”
Tori Spelling reveals details of ‘90210’ drama
On a recent episode of “Celebrity Lie Detector,” Tori Spelling spilled the beans about behind-the-scenes drama on the hit show “Beverly Hills, 90210.” She confessed to being a part of getting Shannen Doherty fired from the show, which was created and produced by her father, Aaron Spelling. She seemed to regret asking her father to fire Doherty, saying she felt like she contributed to someone losing their job. “Was she a horrible person? No. She was one of the best friends I ever had.” Spelling also revealed to having slept with castmate Jason Priestley, saying “it was a summer fling.” She also gave details about her romance with Brian Austin Green, who played her boyfriend on the show. “We grew up together,” she said. “I think I was always in love with Brian.” Priestley, who regularly interacts with fans on Twitter, responded to the reveal by tweeting “I’m not getting into this ... It’s nobody’s business ... Either way ...”
