AMP Music Minute: Eminem Taps Dr. Dre for New Album, Adele Wants a Boy & J.T. and Biebs in Baywatch?
Eminem Working with Dr. Dre on New Album-
Sitting down with DJ Whoo Kid, Detroit MC, Eminem, took some time to speak on his new album, which has recently begun working on. Em explained that his creative process will still include the man who brought him to the big game, Dr. Dre.
“Yeah, of course he’ll be involved,”Shady Records rapper said of Dr. Dre to his interviewer. “I usually get going and kind of start going a certain direction and just record what I’m feeling. Then I’ll go see Dre and fill in some of those pieces.”
This approach has clearly stuck gold-or should we say diamond with his fans. Since his first release under Dr. Dre’s mentor-ship, Slim Shady has racked up two diamond albums with the other four all sitting comfortable with at least double platinum certification. in fact, he has sold about 68 Million record so far with no signs of letting up.
No title or release date yet, but if we know Eminem, he will be delivering pure fire!
Adele Wants a Boy Baby-
Adele must be bubbly about her pregnancy because the UK singer has already started building the room her new bundle of joy will reside in.
According to Mr. Paparazzi, the singer had to wait for the ‘OK’ from a licensing council but has just been given the green light. “Adele is delighted she’s finally got the planning permission through — it couldn’t have come at a better time.” a source told Mr. Paparazzi. ” She went through the usual tedious months of waiting for the council to grant her permission to change the house. Now it’s going to be a real dream home for her and her new family.”
And while her opinions may have changed, last year Adele told Vogue that she hoped to have boys – a lot of boys actually. We are thinking it still holds true, though.
“Like, if I ever have children, I want five boys. Boys love their mothers, whereas girls can be so mean to each other,” she told the magazine.
Well, there is no room for that in the Adele household.
J. Timeberlake and J. Bieber in the Running for Baywatch Roles-
Word on the street is Paramount Pictures is in the process of rebooting the iconic life guard series “Baywatch” by making a movie. This isn’t a new thing. In fact, TV reboots are all the rage with “21 Jump Street,” which was just in theaters and Miami Vice a few years back. Heck, even “The Muppets” was a TV show first!
So who are up for these coveted roles? Well who better than singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake for one. According to Twitch Film, the studio is looking to bring Timberlake along as the new David Hasselhoff character. Instead of being a retired Navy Seal, as Hasselhoff played, JT would be a former Olympic swimmer. Not as hardcore, but, a swimmer nonetheless. And Michael Phelps is a little scary, right?
Another lucrative part in the film is being shopped around as well is the part of Hoff’s son in the series, Hobie Buchannon. The actor that played him in the series, Jeremy Jackson has his sights set on the Biebs reprising his former role.
You read that right. TMZ caught up with the actor who admitted he’ even train Justin Bieber up for the role. And not even for cash-but just for a chance to wing around Justin’s Batmobile Cadillac.
And only on weekends. Sounds like a good deal.
