The luxury Fyre Festival, on a private island in the Bahamas, has turned into a disaster amid cancelled flights and appalling organisation, it has been widely reported.
The Ministry of Tourism of Bahamas has issued a “heartfelt apology” after the luxury Fyre Festival, co-organised by rap star Ja Rule, was cancelled this week, leaving angry music fans who had paid up to $12,000 per ticket stranded on the island amid cancelled flights and shambolic organisation.
Furious ticket holders have bombarded social media since arriving on the Caribbean island this week, expressing their outrage at finding discarded rubbish, wild dogs, cancelled flights, lack of security, poor quality food, half-built infrastructure and general chaos when they had been promised a luxury VIP festival of music, arts and food.

Maura and Jane have a lot of differences; Maura has a high-flying job at a hospital, though is recovering from a divorce and a little nervous when it comes to meeting other men, while Jane is, well, not. They're nonetheless the best sisters you could imagine and always bring out the best in each other. However, when they're parents call them back to their childhood home, they discover that it's been sold and they have to clean out the room they had as girls. Going through their old stuff brings back a lot of memories though, and Jane decides to encourage Maura to throw a huge neighborhood party before they have to leave. It's a time where they can re-connect to their teenage selves, hook up with some cute guys and get totally drunk. This is going to be messy.

Can you believe JLo has never performed a gig in the Bronx? Well, not anymore.
She really is still Jenny from the block. Fifteen years into her successful career, Jennifer Lopez returned to her home for her first ever concert in the Bronx Wednesday night. There’s a theme here – JLo has kept up her connection to the Bronx throughout her career, so what better time to return – or to make her debut – than the fifteenth anniversary of her first album On The 6. Fun fact – the album was named after the subway line that connected Lopez’ home to her big city dreams.
With numerous costume changes, Lopez walked down memory lane back throughout her fifteen years on stage.
Now an international superstar, Lopez definitely returned in style, with a free, 90-minute concert at Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay Park for State Farm's Neighborhood Sessions, featuring some amazing choreography, abundant pyrotechnics and several guest performers. Ja Rule, Fat Joe and French Montana all made appearances throughout the night, which was themed around Lopez’ Bronx-gone-Hollywood story.

The platinum-selling rapper Ja Rule has ended the prison sentence for his gun possession charge, but found himself straight back in federal custody on tax charges
Ja Rule’s prison sentence for illegal possession may well be over but the rapper headed straight from one sentence to another: this time for unpaid tax offences. Associated Press report that the platinum-selling rapper left his upstate New York prison yesterday morning (February 21, 2013) but headed straight back into federal custody, owing to a tax case that’s hanging over his head.
According to the report, Ja Rule was escorted from the Mid-State Correctional Facility at 9:30am. The 36 year-old had been held at the Oneida County Jail, where he will find out where he’s due to serve time for the tax case. The rapper had been in protective custody, due to his fame and now has time remaining on a 28 months sentence for tax evasion, which ran concurrently to his gun crime sentence. It’s likely that his sentence will last less than six months and he may even be eligible for a halfway house, according to defence attorney Stacey Richman. She explained that it’s because of those unpaid taxes that Ja Rule is pretty keen to get back to work. And of course his fans are keen to see that happen, too.
Assistant US attorney Joseph Mack confirmed that Ja Rule, real name Jeffrey Atkins, owes the IRS $1.1 million and was unsure how much, if any, had been paid. In March 2011, Atkins told a judge “I in no way attempted to deceive the government or do anything illegal," he told the judge. "I was a young man who made a lot of money — I'm getting a little choked up — I didn't know how to deal with these finances, and I didn't have people to guide me, so I made mistakes.”
What more could be expected from a guilty pleasure-ridden American popcorn movie like The Fast and the Furious. Nothing of substance or intelligence is ever really expected from a summer movie, much less when that movie bears a title akin to a bad porno flick. The Fast and the Furious was exactly how I felt leaving the theater: Hightailing it back home, furious at how quickly the movie fell apart. I mean, how the hell could you screw up something as slam-dunk-awesome as souped-up performance cars amidst the illegal street racing subculture of the L.A. Basin?

Case in point: international sensation Pras co-produced and stars in Turn It Up. It's about, what else, a young man's struggle to escape his life of crime. Redemption is the order of the day. Diamond (Pras) is a talented hip-hop performer who harbors big dreams of cutting his own record, but can't afford the inflated costs of studio time. His mercurial loose cannon of a best friend, Gage (Billboard chart-topper Ja Rule), wants to lend a helping hand, stealing $10,000 from an ill-fated drug runner. Unfortunately, the money financing Diamond's career belongs to a vicious British gangster (Jason Stratham, Snatch, good even when he's coasting) who suddenly takes an interest in stealing the rights to Diamond's record. Things sure are heating up around here.

The Cookout is a comedy-drama about a ton of interesting social dynamics: About the potential backlash of instant fame and fortune (and the resulting intra-urban pressure not to succeed), about the endless small stereotypes that white people make about black people (and the endless small stereotypes that black people make about white people), and about the need for people, black or white, to be true to themselves.

Scary Movie 3 sticks with the program: mind-bogglingly dumb characters hustle their way through spoofs of the industry's most popular recent films. It's no mistake that the roasted movies -- in this case: Signs, The Ring, and 8 Mile -- all pull in huge money and attract a young audience.

By my calculations - and this is far from scientific - Seagal appears in approximately 15% of his own scenes. The rest of the time, director Don Michael Paul uses quick-cuts, (very) large shadows and wide-angle shots taken from a distance to hide the liberal use of a body double. So why use Seagal at all? Is he really a draw? An effective marketing tool?
