Dance music superstar David Guetta wants to be the first DJ to play a set in space after performing his last album on a plane. Guetta often works on songs while in the air as he says there are no distractions, and he even performed a set whilst flying to Ibiza in 2011.
Now he wants to take his gigging to new heights with an intergalactic concert when the planned commercial space flights finally have lift-off.
Speaking to Michael and Andrea on British radio show KISS FM UK, Guetta says, "This is one of my favourite things, because when I'm on a plane, I have no phone, no Internet, nothing. I love working on my music on the plane - it's amazing. For my previous album, I played it to journalists on the plane. I was DJ-ing on the plane from Paris to Ibiza. That was so cool and people were dancing. It was amazing. Everybody came in close to me, and the pilot was like - 'Whoa! Go back to your seats,' because of course, if everybody goes in the same place, the nose goes down. So they could dance, but they had to stay in their aisles to keep the balance...
"I was speaking to this guy from the space programme, and he was telling me - 'Okay, so the training is very easy. You just have to fly a few times on a military plane and imagine that it's going to be like this but ten times more intense.' That got me a little scared but to be the first guy to DJ in space? That would be crazy, I mean, that's history."
Comedian/actor Russell Brand is adding documentarian to his resume as he develops a film about the global economic crisis with British director Michael Winterbottom. The Get Him to the Greek star has become involved in various social causes in the past few months and has written a book titled Revolution, which focuses on how money influences society.
Now the 39 year old is looking to shine a brighter light on the subject with the new documentary.
Winterbottom says, "It's about inequality and why the one per cent (of the world's wealthy) seem to have so much and the rest of us not quite so much.
"(With Brand involved), it's going to be funny. Everyone knows about equality and what's going on in the world, so the idea is to point out the ludicrous extremes of our society."
The documentary began filming this week (begs13Oct14).
Leonardo DiCaprio has donated $2 million (£1.25 million) through his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to an organisation working to protect ocean life.
The funds will benefit ocean conservation group Oceans 5, which is attempting to stop illegal fishing and create marine reserves in the world's five oceans, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A statement from The Great Gatsby star, who was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace on Climate Change last month (Sep14), reads, "Oceans 5 is an exciting new platform for marine conservation. Working together with other philanthropists, we are making smarter, more impactful investments for the future of our planet. "The sad truth is that less than two per cent of our oceans are fully protected. We need to change that now. My Foundation supports Oceans 5 projects that are directly improving ocean health by stopping overfishing and creating marine reserves." The donation comes months after the 39 year old pledged $3 million (£1.25 million) to another group, Oceana, in an effort to help conservationists protect sharks, marine mammals and ocean habitats in the Eastern Pacific.
Hollywood's former Batman, Michael Keaton, would reprise the superhero role "in a heartbeat" if director Tim Burton agreed to return.
The actor first played the Caped Crusader in 1989 blockbuster Batman and reprised the role in 1992 follow-up Batman Returns, both directed by Burton. Keaton has now revealed he would only consider stepping back into costume if he could work with Burton. When asked by Entertainment Weekly magazine if he would ever return to the role of Batman, Keaton replies:
"If it was Tim Burton directing? In a heartbeat. Tim, in the movies, really invented the whole dark superhero thing. He started everything, and some of the guys who have done these movies since then don't say that, and they're wrong." Keaton recently shocked fans when he revealed he has not watched Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, which featured Christian Bale in the lead role, saying, "Chris Nolan is great, but I've never seen any of the Batman movies all the way through. I know they're good. I just have zero interest in those kinds of movies."
The Office ended May 16, 2013. That might only be a year and a half ago, but with fall TV in full swing, The Office fans can feel the show's presence missing from our lives. Can't they just reunite and make new episodes already? Every other show/movie is getting redone or sequels or put on Netflix, why not skip the waiting period and do it now?

Chris Brown will lead the way at the 2014 Soul Train Awards after scoring seven nominations. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker is bouncing back from months of legal troubles, which included a prison stint earlier this year (14) after he was kicked out of a court-ordered rehab programme for anger management, and now he has been given a career boost. He will compete for the titles of Song of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Song of the Year, Best Dance Performance and Best Collaboration for his track Loyal, featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga.
His New Flame duet with Usher is shortlisted for Video of the Year, while he will fight for Best R&B/Soul Male Act against the likes of five-time nominee Pharrell Williams, Trey Songz and John Legend.
Meanwhile, Williams will go head-to-head with Beyonce, who has notched up six nods, for Album of the Year. Other nominees in the coveted category are John Legend, Drake, Janelle Monae and Michael Jackson, whose posthumous release, Xscape, makes the shortlist.
Beyonce and Monae are also in the running for Best R&B/Soul Female Act, alongside Jennifer Hudson and Jhene Aiko.
The 2014 Soul Train Awards, which celebrate the best in black music, will take place in Las Vegas on 7 November (14).
A man accused of conning thousands of dollars from producers behind a planned Broadway run of Rebecca: The Musical has been jailed for 34 months. Former stockbroker Mark Hotton pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud last year (13), with one charge relating to an investment scam which derailed a 2012 production of Michael Kunze's show, about the identity struggles of a wealthy businessman's new partner living in the shadow of his late first wife.
The 48 year old confessed to taking a finder's fee, despite lying about having secured $4.5 million (£2.8 million) in funding to help stage the production.
He was sentenced in a New York court on Friday (10Oct14) and ordered to pay producers $68,000 (£42,500) in restitution, among other fees.
Rebecca: The Musical, based on author Daphne du Maurier's 1938 thriller, is now expected to hit Broadway next year (15).
Former abuse victim Rosie O'Donnell has been left "shocked and heartbroken" by the child molestation accusations filed against her longtime pal Stephen Collins, admitting she is "scared" by her inability to spot an alleged predator. The actor, who played a minister on TV show 7th Heaven, hit headlines earlier this week (begs06Oct14) when audio footage purportedly featuring Collins confessing to inappropriately touching three young girls during a secretly-recorded therapy session with his wife in 2012 surfaced online.
Authorities have subsequently confirmed he is under police investigation after a New York woman filed a formal complaint about his reported advances when she was a kid.
Now O'Donnell is speaking out about the scandal, insisting she is stunned by the news.
Discussing the accusations on her U.S. talk show The View on Thursday (09Oct14), she said, "(I'm) shocked and heartbroken. I think, like anyone here who knows someone who's been accused of sexual abuse of children, it devastates everyone in the radius of that person, because it's a shocking allegation and you know, for me, I always have my antenna up, in a way for that, having had a childhood with that (sexual abuse), and I never in a million years (would have suspected Collins)... That's the thing that scared me the most..."
The A League of Their Own actress admits she always held Collins in high regard, comparing him to family man and Little House on the Prairie star Michael Landon.
She continued, "In my opinion he's the Michael Landon of this generation; he always plays the wholesome, wonderful, loving, caring guy, and in real life, is that (a suspected paedophile), and... it is so unbelievably, kind of, hard (to accept)."
O'Donnell insists she has no doubt of the authenticity of the tape, which was recorded by his estranged wife Faye Grant without his knowledge, adding, "I can say, as somebody who knows him, it sounds an awful lot like him, or it's a really good impersonator, so to hear his actual voice saying the things that he had done, was horrific and terrifying."
Meanwhile, O'Donnell's The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg has also expressed her dismay at the allegations after working with Collins on 1986 film Jumpin' Jack Flash.
She added, "You never know who you're walking down the street with, you never know sometimes who you're sleeping with; it's kind of wild (crazy)."
Former Batman Michael Keaton has "zero interest" in the superhero films despite portraying the Caped Crusader on the big screen. The actor played the beloved comic book character in director Tim Burton's two acclaimed movies in the late 1980s and early '90s, but he admits the role didn't make him a dedicated action hero fan.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "(The Dark Knight director) Chris Nolan is great, but I've never seen any of the Batman movies all the way through. I know they're good. I just have zero interest in those kinds of movies...
"I mean, people are asking me, 'Is Ben Affleck going to be any good?' And my attitude is, First of all, why would you ask me? Second, he's probably going to be very good, and third, frankly, it's all set up now so that you're weirdly kind of safe.
"Once you get in those suits, they really know what to do with you. It was hard then; it ain't that hard now."
Affleck is the latest star to step into the role of Bruce Wayne for the upcoming 2016 film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Michael Jackson's eldest son has become the latest member of boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.'s inner circle. The fighter made the news official by releasing a tweet earlier this week (beg06Oct14), welcoming the teenager to his Money Team, and now the unbeaten champion has revealed he plans to train Prince Michael to become a boxer.
Mayweather, who may well become a trainer when his ring career ends after two more fights in 2015, tells TMZ.com, "I haven't worked with him yet, but I look forward to working with him when I get back to Las Vegas."
The fighter's inner circle also includes pop star Justin Bieber and rapper Lil Wayne, who often appear at his boxing matches and help lead the champion to the ring from his dressing room.
