Jordin Sparks: I Can't Wait to Be Mrs. Jason Derulo


Frazer Harrison/Getty Images via ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Jordin Sparks is a Grammy-nominated singer and actress, but she is also a big football fan -- an Arizona Cardinals fan to be exact."I was born into a football family," Sparks told ABC News, adding that her father played pro ball in the NFL for the Giants and Cowboys. "This is not just a guy's sport. Women can have fun and love watching too."With that in mind, Sparks, 24, was just recently named NFL Women's Apparel Brand Ambassador and couldn't be more excited about the honor."I love the sport, you don't have to twist my arm," she told the NFL when they asked her to take part. "Sports is something that me and my family always bond over. We get together and watch the games and nana [her grandmother] will make Sunday lunch. We'll eat and watch the games."So, Sparks loves football and the Cardinals -- that's decided. The one thing she can't decide on is what name to put on the back of her customizable NFL jersey."I'll probably be putting either Sparks or Derulo on the back of my jersey," she said, possibly opting to put her boyfriend Jason Derulo's last name on the jersey. "I haven't decided yet."And a jersey is exactly what Sparks is comfortable in the most."My style has always been more tom boyish," she said. "I've always been comfortable wearing sweatpants and sneakers, that's always a go to."She continued, "Since American Idol happened and getting into this crazy world, all the glamor and stuff, I've definitely gotten to explore more fashion. I don't really have a stylist right now, so everything you see on the carpet has been me finding them or finding the dress, or reaching out to see if I can borrow a dress. It's been fun."For example, last weekend at the MTV VMAs, "I loved my outfit, it looked great and Jason was my best accessory because we matched. But the whole time, I could not stop thinking how much I wanted to be in sweats and socks!"Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Jennifer Aniston Opens Up About Not Having Kids


ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux aren't worrying about whether they are going to have children."It's not something that's in our everyday life, quite honestly. It's more questions that arise in a red carpet line or in an interview," she told People magazine earlier this week.She continued, "I just find it to be energy that is unnecessary and not really fair for those who may or may not [have children]. Who knows what the reason is, why people aren't having kids. There's a lot of reasons that could be, and maybe it's something that no one wants to discuss."She added that whether she and her fiancé of two years have babies, it's "everyone's personal prerogative."Aniston, 45, this week also joined Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a mini Friends reunion.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Beyonce Calls Blue Ivy 'My Biggest Muse'


Eric McCandless/CBS ©2013 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved(LOS ANGELES) -- Beyoncé rarely talks about her personal life.In a new poem, however, she reflects on how her daughter has affected her life."It's my daughter, she's my biggest muse/There's someone, we all find out soon/more important than ourselves to lose," she wrote in a piece called Bey the Light for CR Fashion Book. "But for my daughter I dream a day/When no one roots for others to fail/When we all mean what we say."Beyoncé, 32, recently made headlines for delivering a show-stopping performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. For those kinds of shows, she wrote, she taps into her stage persona, Sasha Fierce -- and it doesn't stop there."Though we're different as blue and red," she wrote. "I'm not afraid to draw from her in performance, rifts, even in bed."The poem also touches on her deep connection with her late grandmother, the value she places on prayer and how she views her role as a performer."You call me a singer, but I'm called to transform/to suck up the grief, anxiety and loss of those who hear me into my song's form," she wrote. "I'm a vessel for all that isn't right/for break-ups and lies and double-cross/I sing into that vessel a healing light."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Movie Review: "As Above/So Below" (Rated R)


Universal(NEW YORK) -- The found footage horror flick As Above/So Below revolves around Scarlet (Perdita Weeks), an archeologist of sorts who speaks multiple languages -- two of them dead -- and is a black belt in Krav Maga.  Totally believable, right?  Scarlet's immediate goal in life is to fulfill her late father’s quest to find the Philosopher’s Stone, and she won’t let anything stop her...not even a silly thing like death.When Scarlet discovers that the stone may be hidden in the catacombs of Paris, she recruits a team to accompany her on her underground descent, including a few people who know their way around the place. There, they encounter human remains, a guy who used to live in the catacombs but who disappeared two years ago, plenty of sudden, loud noises, and dozens of other obvious signs that they should leave before they all come to a horrible and violent end.Then, there’s the most disturbing sign something is amiss: objects and people from each member of the team's past begin to pop up. There’s a spooky piano, an even spookier dead brother and a burning car from an accident.  All of this, mind you, is taking place nearly a thousand feet under the streets of Paris.  Yes, it’s pretty creepy, but perhaps no more creepy than riding that New York City subway line you recently found out is infested with bedbugs.Like so many horror films, the decisions made by these characters are preposterous -- nearly as preposterous as the notion that you are watching found footage from a camera that was left behind with no hope of ever getting it back. I’m beginning to think it’s called “found" footage because people FIND it annoying. There’s nothing new here; aside from a couple of claustrophobic and aurally frightening moments, As Above/So Below is more boring than it is scary.Two out of five stars.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

The law enforcement source confirmed the woman was Rivers.TMZ reported that Rivers was having surgery on her vocal chords at the clinic.Later on Thursday, E! Online tweeted that Rivers was in "critical but stable condition."Rivers, 81, had been hard at work of late, co-hosting her E! TV show, Fashion Police and doing stand-up comedy. According to Ticketmaster, she had seven shows planned across the U.S. for November."Ignore aging: Comedy is the one place it doesn’t matter. It matters in singing because the voice goes. It matters certainly in acting because you’re no longer the sexpot. But in comedy, if you can tell a joke, they will gather around your deathbed," she wrote in The Hollywood Reporter in 2012.

Britney Spears Is Single After Boyfriend Reportedly Cheated on Her


Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Britney Spears is newly single -- reportedly because her boyfriend cheated on her.Brit tweeted on Thursday, "Ahhhh the single life!" Coincidentally or not, she posted that comment around the same time TMZ published a story claiming David Lucado was videotaped making out with another woman earlier this month.Reportedly, Brit dumped her boyfriend after learning about the footage, which TMZ says is being shopped around.A rep for David tells the website, "David is very, very in love with Britney. This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out." Unfortunately for David, it didn't work out -- Brit's rep confirms to Billboard that the pop star is single.Britney dated David for a year and a half.
