The Smith Family

Will Smith and Jada Pinkeet-Smith recently opened their 25,000 sq ft home to the readers of Architectural Digest in their upcoming September issue.

Sporting a meditation room, a lake, tennis courts and a circular design, the Smiths spared no expense to make their 9 bedroom Calabasas home a perfect fit for their family's needs.

"Everything needed to be done by hand," Will says. "We wanted to feel the love and labor that went into every piece of this place."

Jada agreed adding, "We're very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land."

The last time this project and its cast were discussed here was back in November of last year at the old site; when Tambay reported Faith Evans would portray singer Florence Ballard in her big screen biopic. At the time, Taraji P. Henson was also rumored to have been offered the role of Diana Ross. Well now, it looks like both Evans and Henson are out of the picture.

From the Huffington Post:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, George Lucas conceived of a film about brave fighter pilots. No, not "Star Wars," but the true-life tale of the barrier-shattering World War II squadron, The Tuskegee Airmen.

Barack Obama and Malia Obama

While the President isn't too worried about aging himself ("Michelle still thinks I'm cute," he reassured NPR), he does have concerns about his daughters growing up too fast.

According to CNN, on Friday in a speech to members of the auto industry, Obama quipped:

"It's only a matter of time until Malia gets her learner's permit. So I'm hoping to see one of those models that gets a top speed of 15 miles an hour. The ejector seat any time boys are in the car. So, hopefully you guys have some of those in the pipeline."

From Billboard:

Ah, auto-tune, the popular vocal effect used by producers to correct a singer's pitch. It's impossible to turn on modern hip-hop radio these days without hearing it. Now T-Pain, the R&B singer and producer widely credited with popularizing auto-tune, is suing Antares Technologies, the company that first developed it.
