Jessie J To Co-Host 2015 MTV Movie Awards With Kelly Osbourne: Morning Mix
Did You Hear?
:: The 2015 MTV Movie Awards airs this Sunday (April 12) at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, and the pre-show hosts have been announced! Kelly Osbourne and Jessie J are set to entertain the crowd before the big ceremony airs. The “Masterpiece” singer does have some TV skills — she was previously a coach on The Voice UK from 2012-2013.

:: Remember all the talk about the forthcoming Tupac biopic? Well, director John Singleton has dropped out of the project, claiming the people involved did not respect the rapper’s legacy. He has been replaced by Carl Franklin. Singleton is now gunning to create his own film about Tupac’s life. Drama! [Stereogum]
:: Speaking of films, Kanye West and Common will star in an upcoming one directed by Spike Lee. As of now, there is not a set plot nor a prospective release date. But the title is Chiraq, which hints to the city of Chicago and its infamously violent underbelly. Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Piven will also have roles in the project. [The Wrap]
:: Brian Wilson knows more than a thing or two about pop and surf rock, but The Beach Boys frontman recently revealed that he has never heard of punk rock! In an interview with The Guardian, this odd exchange occurred:
What did you make of punk rock?
I don’t know what that is. Punk rock? Punk? What is that?
It was a loud, aggressive musical movement that happened around 1976.
Oh yeah. I never went for that. I never went for the fast kind of music. I go for the more medium tempo. Spencer Davis, I liked that.
