After the success of La La Land, it looks like musicals are about to become a bit more main stream this year…

And, a new musical has been bought by Fox which will tell the story of Pharrell Williams' life.

The project, named Atlantis, has been described as a Romeo and Juliet type story with a musical element, inspired by Pharrell's young years in Virginia Beach.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Mayer, who is known for his Broadway work on Spring Awakening (which he won a Tony for) and American Idiot, is attached to direct while, Martin Hynes, who is currently writing Toy Story 4, is said to be writing the script.

We could be super naive here, but does Pharrell have a majorly dramatic back-story that we don't know about?!

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!

Beyoncé, Jay Z, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West are all taking legal action against French sportswear label, EvelenParis

The celebs and their respective holding companies are alleging that the brand has used each of their names and likeness without their permission on garments they are selling. 

The garments in question also have their faces printed onto them as well as slogans like "Kanye is my Homie" and "Pharrell is my Brotha."

The Paris-based company retails relatively inexpensive products including jumpers, t-shirts, backpacks and phone covers – although the garments in question have all now disappeared from the brand's website. 

Almost 60 violations against the musicians are listed in the lawsuit and the high-profile group is seeking the end of manufacturing for all offending items.

They also want unspecified damages including not only legal fees but the profits made from the items that were sold too.

But the plot thickens, as this isn't the first time that the company has fallen foul on celebrities, as the lawsuit details a prior warning: 

"Even after receiving warning to cease selling the infringing goods, defendants continue to sell unauthorised products and to trade upon the goodwill associated with the plaintiffs, all for defendants' profits."

We can see a long road ahead of this one!

We would love to know what kind of conversations were happening back stage at this festival that is for sure.

The line-up for Apple Music Festival has revealed that super band One Direction will be performing, but it’s their support act that is making us all do a double-take.

Little Mix have been announced as the support group for the 1D boys.

That could be a bit awkward, no? Well, considering Perrie of Little Mix and Zayn Malik formerly of One Direction are currently having the most public break up ever, then maybe.

Although, in recent days it seems like the boys have been possibly taking sides.

​Zayn has been a very active twitter user recently, and started a bit of a row with DJ Calvin Harris.

Following this little spat between the two music men, former bandmate of Zayn, Louis Tomlinson favorited the tweet which was Calvin’s response to Zayn’s Taylor Swift diss.

Fans of the band who coined the phrase ‘Zouis’, were left devastated. These were the fans dedicated to celebrating the bromance that existed between Zayn and Louis.

Meanwhile, other peformers, who are not the midst of Twitter battles were also announced to play the festival.

Florence + The Machine, Pharrell Williams and Disclosure are also set to perform at the festival which fans will be able to view on Apple Music Connect if they can’t make it the actual gigs.

Speaking about the concert Niall Horan said:

“It'll be great to be back in London and we can't wait to perform for our fans in the Roundhouse and around the world on Apple Music! See you there!”

The festival takes place over 10 nights starting on 19 September, so perhaps things will have cooled down between the pop stars by then.

A source has confirmed that Gwen Stefani will be joining the judging panel on NBC’s The Voice.

The 44-year-old is set to replace Christina Aguilera, who is stepping down to go on maternity leave.

However, she won’t be the only new judge on the show.

Pharell Williams – who was a guest mentor on the show last year – was signed to replace Cee Lo Green.

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will remain on the show but with the other new judges in the show, we hope that things will get better.

The new season will start shooting in June, we can’t wait to see the new talent that lies ahead.
