Get your lowdown on what's going on in the world of Hollywood right here. 

We Found Love
hitmaker Rihanna has reportedly landed herself a villainous role in the next Fast and Furious movie to be directed by Justin Lin.
 
The 24-year-old, who made her Hollywood debut in the sci-fi thriller Battleship, is said to star in the sixth instalment of the hit action franchise, reported Contactmusic.
 
Rihanna will play the role of a femme fatale alongside the regular cast -- Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
 
"Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in Battleship. Writers think she'll be perfect for the role. Her character has plenty of bite and doesn't take any prisoners -- just like her in real life. It's a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles," a source said.
 
The film will be shot in London.

The 31-year-old wants to move away from being a reality TV star and thinks sitcoms will be a better option, reported Sun online.

Family
)," a source said.
    
The American socialite, infamous for her sex video with singer Ray J, had a cameo on a live episode of US comedy
series 30 Rock last week and tweeted it was "a blast".

King of Pop Michael Jackson's bodyguard Matt Fiddes claims that the King of Pop had a secret affair with soul singer Whitney Houston, who died recently.
 
Fiddes, who was Jackson's confidant before his death in 2009, said that Houston even moved into the Thriller hitmaker's ranch, reported Sun online.
 
"One of the many stories that has never been told about Michael is that he had an ultra-secret affair with Whitney
Houston that he never got over. He was furious when he heard she had also slept with (brother) Jermaine but this didn't
stop him holding a candle for her his whole life," Fiddes said.
 
The bodyguard also claimed that Jackson and Houston met in 1991, when both were at the height of their careers.
 
"They instantly connected as kindred spirits because they understood each other's massive fame. Whitney practically
moved in to Michael's ranch and they had a fling like any other young couple. But Michael said later he had always hoped
the relationship had gone further, and I know he dreamed of marrying her," he said, adding that the romance lasted just
two weeks and began a year before Houston wed Bobby Brown.
