A Week In News: Beyonce Nails Super Bowl, Yoda Set For The Big Screen, Kate Debuts Bump

An Irreplaceable Super Bowl For Beyonce As She Reaches Her Performing Destiny, Yoda The Movie Anyone? And, The Duchess Of Cambridge Debuting Her Baby-Bump

Irreplaceable: Beyonce showed over 100 million television viewers why she's the biggest R&B star on the planet at the Super Bowl on Sunday. Her rip-roaring LIVE set was very much the talking point after the game (won by the Baltimore Ravens, by the way).

Yoda The Movie? Hot on the heels of news that J.J. Abrams will helm Star Wars Episode 7, Disney has announced its intention to make several Star Wars spin-off movies over the coming years. Speculation that Jabba The Hut, Darth Vader and - lord forbid - Jar Jar Binks could helm the films is rife, though good old Yoda is the big favourite for the first movie.

Totally Frank: Odd Future alum Frank Ocean is telling police exactly how it is, in relation to his scuffle with Chris Brown a couple of weeks back. The Grammy-nominated R&B star had initially decided against pressing charges, though now claims Brown tried to shoot him.

Kate Middleton

The Royal Bump: It was great to see The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton debuting her baby-bump this week! Kate and husband Prince William are taking a well-earned break in the Caribbean following the former's recent illness and the latter's heavy working schedule in the past few months.

Wild Thing: It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of The Troggs singer Reg Presley this week. The rock veteran died surrounded by his family in England this week, aged 71. His group influenced the likes of Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones and will always be best known for their snarling classic, Wild Thing. 

Starman: Great news for World of Warcraft fans this week, with Duncan Jones - the son of David Bowie and director of sci-fi flick Moon - confirming himself for the movie adaptation of the classic videogame. Can it work? Games don't exactly make the best films now do they?

Seth Cohen, Blair Waldorf!? Yep it looks as though the rumors are true! Adam Brody, aka Seth Cohen of The O.C fame is dating Leighton Meester, aka, Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl fame! Is this the finest matched pairing in Hollywood?

Bruce Willis

A Good Day To Die Hard? Bruce Willis somewhat surprisingly came out against a proposed ban on gun laws this week, claiming messing with the second amendment would create all sorts of problems. Though he's made a career out of violent movies, Willis is one of the few Hollywood types to actively defend the right to own a gun. We wonder how this one will go down amongst his contemporaries?

Stay Classy! The Anchorman sequel is really shaping up to be something special, isn't it? So long as the script's on the money this one really can't fail, and the movie received a major boost this week with news that Kristen Wiig has signed up! We can't wait.

Video of the Week: This week's hottest footage comes from a Skatepark at the Venice Boardwalk, California, where Heidi Klum are her team film the new series of Germany's Next Top Model. Can you spot the model looking absolutely freezing in the biting wind?
