  • J-Lo Considering a Las Vegas Residency?

    Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCJennifer Lopez was partying in Las Vegas last week, but does she want to do it onstage, on a nightly basis?

    The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that on Friday, J-Lo and her manager Benny Medina were seen at Shania Twain's concert at Caesars Palace, and the Las Vegas Sun says that on Saturday the two were spotted hanging out with Bruno Mars at Bruno's after-party at the Marquee at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

    The Review Journal says that Jennifer's presence may indicate she's being wooed to set up her own residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, since Celine Dion canceled her own shows at that venue for personal reasons and Shania Twain is wrapping up her stint there.

    Despite her American Idol stardom and success as a businesswoman and TV producer, J-Lo's most recent album and its singles have underperformed, the paper points out.  However, she still puts on a spectacular live show, and she just might welcome the chance to stay put with her kids and perform in one place, as Britney Spears has done.

  • Matthew McConaughey Reveals 'Gut Reason' He Took 'Interstellar' Role

    ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) --  When Matthew McConaughey was considering taking the role of a father and former astronaut in the science-fiction movie Interstellar, he says he thought of his son Levi.

    "He was into space and I would explain things in the solar system and how we got on the moon and all these things, and [he'd have] these young, wondrous eyes trying to, you know, work this out in his head," McConaughey said. "That was the main gut reason why I had to do this film."

    The Oscar winner appears alongside fellow Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain in the Christopher Nolan film. They all sat down for an interview recently with ABC News' David Muir.

    The film centers on a team of explorers that travels to another galaxy in search of another planet for humans to live on because Earth is in trouble over climate change.

    The movie is due out Nov. 5 in select theaters and in wide release Nov. 7.

    Nolan said that he was drawn to the emotion of the script, which was originally written by his brother Jonathan Nolan.

    "My brother's original script has this amazing set of characters at the heart of it. This family who's sort of tested in this extraordinary way," he said. "And that's the thing that I most related to in the film."

    Hathaway revealed that a particular scene during which her character cried had her hugging her castmates even more than usual.

    "I immediately wanted to go out and find a comedy to act in," she said with a laugh.

    Nolan and his crew turned to Kip Thorne, a renowned theoretical physicist who has long studied the far reaches of the universe, for help on creating the black hole the astronauts travel through. Nolan said parts of a spaceship were also built and used on the set, rather than a green screen or special effects.

    "If you look at this film and you look at where we are right now in the world — and the climate changes that’s happening … You have to push forward and evoke some kind of positive change in your life, in the world," Chastain said. "It’s an incredible, thrilling movie."

    She said she also hoped the movie would inspire younger generations.

    "The idea that there could be a 7-year-old kid and it inspires her or him to want to go into space and explore space, I think that’s incredible," Chastain said.

    With five days left until the big reveal of her “straight-up pop” album 1989, Taylor Swift decided to pull the curtains back on the project’s entire track list on Wednesday.

    The 24-year-old, who began a 13-day countdown to Monday’s due date by releasing a lyric from each of the songs everyday, unveiled the track titles for 1989 on her Instagram account, which includes the songs “Style,” “How You Get the Girl,” and the drama-bound “Bad Blood,” that was teased in her Rolling Stone cover story.

    Taylor originally announced her all-pop album with the lead single “Shake It Off” and its accompanying music video in August. She later promoted the LP with the release of “Out of the Woods” — the track that best represents the album — and “Welcome to New York” this month.
