The moment—and reported $2 million interview—that we’ve all been waiting for is here. Two weeks from now, Lindsay Lohan‘s Next Chapter will open up to the world in a chat with TV queen Oprah Winfrey. “Are you an addict?” Winfrey asks the Canyons lead in a 15-second teaser of the August 18 special. “What does it feel like to be both an adjective and a verb for child-star-gone-wrong?” [Vulture]

First, he silenced Taylor Swift. Then, he returned only to “Runaway.” Now, Kanye West is set for the MTV Video Music Awards stage once more. The enigmatic visionary will be joining Lady Gaga as one of the evening’s most-anticipated acts  as the ceremony broadcasts from Brooklyn’s Barclays arena for the first time. His “BLKKK SKKKN HEAD” show will tie him with Madonna for the most (seven) number of performances on the VMAs stage. [Billboard]

From hour-long, barefoot walks to a strict fruitarian diet, Ashton Kutcher went above what was required to get into character for Jobs; so much so that he got sick during filming. “My insulin levels got pretty messed up and my pancreas kind of went into some crazy, the levels were really off and it was painful,” said Kutcher, who lost 18 pounds after following Steve Jobs’ diet. “It was uncomfortable,” he later added, “but I think it served a purpose.” [ABC News]

Could Cara Delevingne be stepping off of the catwalk and on to the cinema screen? The 20-year-old It girl has landed a small role in Kids In Love, a drama about young London locals who party, and party hard. [DailyMail]

The Tribeca Film Festival just got a facelift. It’s teaming up with AT&T for a multiyear deal that will position the communications company as its presenting sponsor. That title had been held by American Express since 2002, the year TFF was founded by Robert DeNiroJane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff. AmEx will still be listed as a sponsor of the 2014 event, which will run from April 16—27. [Huffington Post]

He’s already the host of Fox’s American Idol and ABC’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, and this fall, Ryan Seacrest will lend his face to a third big broadcast network. The producer/personality will host NBC’s Million Second Quiz, a reality series in which contestants have to compete for roughly 11 days straight for the chance to win up to $10 million.

This is a Crossfire we want to get caught up in: Sylvia Day‘s best-selling book series is getting adapted for television. Lionsgate bought the rights to the “enduring, sexy, and edgy” trilogy and, according to executive vice president Chris Selak, is “looking forward to working with her to create a show that both excites and connects with audiences as her books have done.” Does this mean Henry Cavill is in the running to play Gideon Cross? [Deadline]
