Here's What Lupita Nyong'o Had to Say About Her Secret Collaboration With Rihanna. In case you didn't know, Lupita Nyong'o and Rihanna are collaborating on a top secret project. Naturally, many are eager to hear all about it. Speaking to E! News, the Us actress lightly talks about the highly-anticipated collab with the Fenty Beauty founder. While the 36-year-old star doesn't reveal much in the interview, especially when she's asked point-blank what details she can share about the project, it's enough to fill fans up with excitement. "I can tell you absolutely nothing about that," she says with a playful smirk. Lupita most certainly acts coy with her answer, however, the bright side to all of this is that their project is really happening. As a little refresher, the two superstars signed on to work on a heist movie, which is the only clue fans have about their collab. And as nuts as it sounds, Twitter, of all places, is the reason they're joining forces. Fans quickly noticed how fierce and fabulous the 31-year-old beauty mogul and Us actress looked at the 2014 Miu Miu fashion show, which quickly became viral on Tumblr. In 2017, the charming photo resurfaced online and Twitter user Sixsxsix said what we were all thinking. "Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans." Of course, Twitter went into a frenzy over the idea. In fact, the tweet went so viral that it caught the attention of Lupita and Rihanna. The 36-year-old actress wrote, "I'm down if you are @rihanna." To which RiRi responded, "I'm Pit'z." To fans' delight, the heist movie was announced in May 2017, starring the female powerhouses. Entertainment Weekly reported Netflix inked a deal for the concept at the Cannes Film Festival. Even better? Ava DuVernay is directing the film and Issa Rae is writing the script. While Rihanna is ruling the beauty and fashion world with her Savage x Fenty and Fenty Beauty lines, Lupita is dominating the big screen. The 36-year-old actress stars in Jordan Peele's psychological thriller, Us. "It was a dream of mine to work with [Peele] and I didn't expect it to come true so soon," Nyong'o says of working with the Get Out director. "When I started [working with him], I had to deal with the fact that I revered him and reverence kills creativity. So I had to get over that real quick." Adding, "I learned very quickly that Jordan is a team player, he's intelligent and his intelligence doesn't come from an egotistical place... He's interested in making the best work possible." "I loved working with him," she says with a smile. (Eonline)

Nicki Minaj did not secretly walk down the aisle with bad boy boyfriend Kenneth Petty, despite recently referring to him as her "husband." As you know ... the rumors started kicking into overdrive after Nicki called her new man her "husband" on the latest episode of "Queen Radio." Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ ... she's very much in love with Kenneth, but any reports saying they're married are false ... despite what she said. We broke the story ... the superstar rapper is considering getting hitched to Kenneth -- and they are talking marriage after just a few months of dating -- but we're told they haven't jumped the broom. As for Kenneth's checkered history with the law, which includes convictions for first-degree attempted rape and manslaughter, we're told Nicki doesn't care about his troubled past because he treats her great ... and she's tired of people bashing him. Bottom line ... Nicki calling Kenneth her hubby is kinda like Travis Scott calling Kylie Jenner his "wife" ... although that seems to be on shaky ground these days. (TMZ)

Paris Jackson is being encouraged by people very close to her to go to rehab, but she's resisting. Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... those close to Paris suggested rehab after what law enforcement says was a suicide attempt over the weekend, landing her in the hospital. We're told the attempted suicide shows some serious underlying problems ... they say Paris is dealing with all sorts of emotional issues as well as substance abuse issues. Our sources say Paris' team had help ready to spring into action Sunday, but she refused. TMZ broke the story ... Paris slit her wrists and was rushed to a hospital early Saturday morning, where she was placed on a temporary 5150 hold. We're told she's been distraught ever since "Leaving Neverland" began airing. As to why Paris was released just hours after she was hospitalized, our sources say she told the hospital that had admitted her that her lawyers were taking her to UCLA Medical Center, and the hospital let her go with the attorneys, but she never ended up at UCLA. Paris is almost 21 -- she's an adult, and therefore the decision to check into rehab is hers and hers alone. (TMZ)

Brian Austin Green Says Beverly Hills, 90210 cast celebrated Luke Perry's life at private gathering. Brian Austin Green is remembering his former Beverly Hills 90210 costar Luke Perry, who died on March 4 after suffering a massive stroke in his Los Angeles home at the age of 52. Green released a new episode of his podcast ... with Brian Austin Green, and dedicated the entire installment to Perry (and the previously announced 90210 reboot). "Luke was a really f -- ing cool guy," Green said in the podcast. "Luke was one of those people that nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy. And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter when you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock. I'm extremely lucky to have had him in my life. He really is a great guy and he'll be missed." According to Green, a group of former Beverly Hills castmates mete up at Gabrielle Carteris' home following Perry's death, people Green said he hadn't seen in at least 18 years. "It was very mixed emotions because you were happy to see everybody . . . but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again," Green said. Green said he called Perry prior to his death to discuss the Beverly Hills reboot, which was announced in February. The limited series stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Tori Spelling, and Green. "I called him when we were talking about the reboot because he knew early on that he was doing Riverdale and so he couldn't do the reboot, which was a shame but we thought, if the reboot's doing really well he can always come back and he can do a couple episodes, we'll figure it out," Green said. "Same thing with Shannen [Doherty]. It's a shame now that that's not a possibility. That's so low on the totem pole but it's a shame for fans that they don't' get that send-off of Dylan McKay like they want." Green also revealed that he texted Perry after he died. "I texted him after he had passed, knowing obviously that he can't text me back, but on some level hoping that he would text me back or that he was out there somewhere," Green said. "And I know he is. I know he's looking down and I know he's smiling." Green added that, "Knowing Luke, he is not one that wants us to mourn him. He wants us to celebrate him." (Entertainment Weekly)

Freeman, who competed on season 13 of NBC's reality competition show The Voice in 2017, tragically died on March 2 at the age of 33. A spokesperson for Freeman's family confirmed to E!

"And, to be here, and I had planned on singing a song for her, but just losing her is just too much for me," Cyrus continued. "So my dad's gonna take care of this for me. But I'll always be your sister, I'm here for you, and I'm here for your family, and Janice I'll miss you more than I could ever say. So, my dad is going to do this for me." Cyrus later joined in on her dad's performance of "Amazing Grace." (Eonline)
