BEYONCE TO PLAY LEGENDARY ETTA JAMES!!! 


Okay, I'm not a big fan of her music, nor was I mesmerized by her performance in "Dreamgirls," but Beyonce keeps on getting movie projects!

This time, the pop star is set to play famed blues singer Etta James in new movie "Cadillac Records."

The songstress will join Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright and Cedric the Entertainer in the 1950s-set film.

MEET THE JONAS BROTHERS!!! 


I was sifting through my previous interviews, and lo and behold, I found this fun one-on-one I had with The Jonas Brothers!

I talked to them last year for Disney's "Meet the Robinsons," and in just a few months, their career zoomed exponentially!

I must admit I enjoy their pop song "S.O.S.," and they're a bunch of fun stars to talk to!

We talked about:

*** the film and their favorite characters
*** the history of their band and the musical instrument they play
*** the song "Kids of the Future" -- the closing credits song for "Meet the Robinsons" and a re-do of Kim Wilde's "Kids in America"
*** the moral story of "Meet the Robinsons"

I think they had a blast, as much as I did! Take a look!
