Star Scoop: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Returns to TV, Beyonce Puts Ring on Marriage Equality, Madonna Banks a Billion

By  March 27, 2013

From Inception to The Dark Knight Rises to Looper, we’ve become accustomed to 3rd Rock From the Sun alum Joseph Gordon-Levitt stealing scenes across theaters the world over. But now, the dashing gent may be headed back to our TV sets. He’s set to host a variety show based on his site, hitRECord, an open collaboration company that focuses on video, audio, images, and text. HitRECord on TV! will premiere on the Participant Media network where Gordon-Levitt will handpick members of his community to present their collaborative efforts online. [Entertainment Weekly]

It was 2008 when Beyoncé gave ladies a new anthem, declaring that if you liked it, you should’ve put a ring on it. Flash forward five years and the Bow Down diva is using one of her biggest hits to champion same-sex marriage. In the wake of Supreme Court hearings on marriage equality, Mrs. Carter took to her Instagram where she offered her support to the cause with a handwritten note reading “If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it. We will unite for marriage equality.” [Stylecaster]

Forbes‘s exclusive billionaires club may be making room for one more: Madonna. The original Material Girl has earned her way to billion-dollar status, due in large part to earnings from her MDNA Tour, which grossed $305,158,363, making her pop’s top earner last year. That plus $75 million in merchandise sales, and $10 million in TV and DVD sales, and we’d say the mother of reinvention earned her seat next to Oprah Winfrey and Tory Burch. [Glam Buzz]

Finally. The teaser for Hugh Jackman as The Wolverine has landed. It only took a six-second Vine teaser of the tease and an MTV drop to carry us over to the X-Men trilogy’s new shining glory. [Forbes]

She racked up a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild award, and an Oscar this year for her riveting role as Fantine in Les Misérables, but now, it’s on to the next for Anne Hathaway. The Valentino loyal is set to star in Laggies, alongside Chloe Moretz and Sam Rockwell. Hathaway will play a woman in her late 20s who goes on a retreat with high schoolers (aka her new “best friends”) after being shocked by a wedding proposal from her boyfriend. Quirky, much?

He did it! The man with the Tom Ford “Suit & Tie” shattered all expectations with his long-awaited third album The 20/20 Experience. Initially projected to hit the 750,000 mark in first week sales, Justin Timberlake landed at number one on the charts with 968,000 copies of his record sold since its March 19th release. [LA Times]
