  • 05/13/14--20:40: Beyonce removes Jay Z tattoo
  • There's yet more confusion over Beyonce's marriage to Jay-Z tonight after it appears that she HAS had her IV tattoo removed.

    Reports just a few weeks back suggested the global popstar had had the tattoo she dedicated to her husband (to symbolise their birthdays and their wedding date) removed. And now new photos of the power couple from this weekend appear to show a SCAR on her ring finger where her tattoo once sat.

    Beyonce, who was hanging out at the basketball with her husband on Saturday, is clearly not wearing her whopper of an engagement ring in the courtside snaps - and on closer inspection she looks to be nursing a nasty red scar in its place.

    Just a few weeks ago she posted a picture of herself eating chicken on her Tumblr, with a plaster over that same finger.

    Michael Fassbender is in negotiations to star in The Light Between Oceans, DreamWorks' adaptation of the M.L. Stedman novel.

    Derek Cianfrance, who last directed the Ryan Gosling drama The Place Beyond the Pines, is directing the drama. The Light Between Oceans is set on an island off the coast of Western Australia after World War I.

    A lighthouse keeper and his wife find a 2-month-old girl and a dead body in a rowboat and decide to raise the baby as their own. But what seems like a blessing soon turns tragic, as morality and love are tested.

    A shoot in Australia is being eyed.

    Heyday Films' David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford are producing.

    Fassbender, repped by CAA, Sloane Offer and UK's Troika, next stars as Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is getting rave reviews.

    "Some familiar faces from the show are bound to drop in," said NBC's entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt at a presentation in New York.

    "We have a big mini-series called Heroes Reborn, based on one of NBC's strongest dramas in recent years."

    The 13 episodes are due to be shown in 2015.

    "Its original creator Tim Kring will reboot the show," added Greenblatt.

    "Plus, we'll ramp into the show with an original online series prior to launch."

    No further details about the casting have been revealed yet.

    When the news of the reboot was announced earlier this year, Masi Oka, who played Hiro Nakamura, tweeted: "Was watching the Olympics and saw the #HeroesReborn trailer. Time to dust off the sword?"

    According to the official website, the series will be "revitalized, re-energized and reborn".

    It adds: "The Heroes saga continues in the summer of 2015 as new and returning characters collide in the epic and never-ending battle between the powers of good and the forces of evil."

    The 20-second teaser trailer for the series has been viewed more than 4.5m times since it first appeared on YouTube on 22 February.

    "The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening," said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, in a statement at the time.

    "Shows with that kind of resonance don't come around often and we thought it was time for another instalment."

    Heroes ran for four series between 2006 and 2010 and featured stars including Zachary Quinto, Hayden Panettiere and Jack Coleman.

    The saga behind the 2006 breakout series “Heroes” will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the “Heroes” phenomenon to new places.

    After weeks of rumblings that Roberto Orci was the frontrunner, sources have told Variety that Skydance and Paramount have indeed tapped Orci to direct Paramount and Skydance’s “Star Trek 3.”

    Orci is currently writing the story with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay and had been campaigning to replace J.J. Abrams as director for some time. Abrams is busy with directing the next installment of the “Star Wars” franchise and will only be producing this pic.

    Par, Skydance and his reps had no comment.

    Plot details are unknown, but cast members including Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are expected to return. Abrams will produce along with his producing partner Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison.

    The news comes after Orci and longtime writing partner Alex Kurtzman decided to go their separate ways on future filmmaking endeavors (although their TV production company is staying intact). Sources had told Variety that both were looking to direct more pics and that going solo would be in the best interest of both parties.

    Orci is repped by CAA.

    Justin Bieber allegedly committed an attempted robbery ... so claims a San Fernando Valley woman, and TMZ has learned the LAPD is now investigating.

    The woman tells TMZ ... Monday night she was at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park -- a complex with miniature golf and a batting cage -- when she spotted Justin and his entourage playing a little mini golf and then hitting balls.

    The woman says Justin and his crew got into an altercation with some guys at the batting cage when J.B. noticed she was going for her cellphone to take pictures. She says Justin demanded to see her phone so he could erase any photos. She says she refused to fork over the phone so he then went into her purse and grabbed the it.

    The woman says she began wrestling with Bieber, trying to get her phone back. She says he ripped it out of her hands but couldn't accomplish his mission because the phone was locked.

    She says Justin gave her the phone back and demanded that she unlock it to see if she took photos. She obliged and showed Justin she had taken none. She says she told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi, and Justin screamed, "You're humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don't you just get out of here." Her daughter started crying.

    She says at that point Justin turned and started screaming at someone else.

    Law enforcement tells TMZ ... the woman lodged a complaint and LAPD cops went to her home Tuesday night to take a report to determine if a crime occurred.

    Film co-stars Eden Sher, Ashley Rickards, Peyton List (Not from The Tomorrow People, the one on Disney's Jessie), Avan Jogia, Claudia Lee, Katie Chang and William Peltz

    Victoria Justice and Eden Sher are set to star in the high school comedy “The Outskirts,” which hails from “Bachelorette” producer BCDF Pictures, the company announced Tuesday.

    Peter Hutchings (“Rhymes with Banana”) will direct the film from a Black List screenplay written by Dominique Ferrari and Suzanne Wrubel. Shooting begins this summer in New York.

    Described as “Mean Girls” meets “Revenge of the Nerds,” the story follows best friends Jodi (Justice) and Mindy (Sher), who have suffered years of torment under the thumb of the school's alpha female (Lee). They plan to ride out their senior year under the radar, but when they become the victim of a humiliating prank, the two hatch a plan to unite the outcasts of the school and start a social revolution. They join forces with an affable slacker (Jogia), a girl scout with a secret (Chang) and an overachiever with dirt on everyone (Rickards).

    The film was developed by New York-based BCDF Pictures, whose Brice and Claude Dal Farra will produce. BCDF's Lauren Munsch and Brian Keady will executive produce with Victoria Bousis of Bousis Films.

    BCDF Pictures teamed with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's hit female comedy “Bachelorette,” which starred Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan. BCDF is packaging a wide range of new projects with an eye toward bigger, more studio-friendly films.

    Red Granite's foreign sales arm, Red Granite International, led by Danny Dimbort and Christian Mercuri, is handling international sales on the picture, which is being under the title “Cool Girls.”

    “We are thrilled to be working on a movie that is at the same time very entertaining and also deals with an issue like high school bullying. Rarely do we find scripts that can deliver such an important message while appealing to wide audiences,” said Claude Dal Farra.

    Justice is repped by UTA and Jackoway, Tyerman, while Sher is with APA, KLWGN and Skrzyniarz & Mallean. Rickards is repped by UTA, KLWGN and Hansen, Jacobson. List is with UTA, Untitled Entertainment and Wilhelmina Creative Management. Jogia is repped by ICM Partners, Characters Talent Agency and KLWGN. Lee is with Paradigm, Joanne Horowitz Management, Strong Management and Morris, Yorn. Chang is with ICM, Carole Dibo Management, Soffer/Namoff Entertainment and Peikoff Mahan. Peltz is with WME and Untitled Entertainment. Ferrari and Wrubel are repped by Circle of Confusion and Bloom, Hergott.

    Candace Cameron Bure was on "The View", where she explained her "submissive marriage" comments from her new book "Balancing It All."

    "I think that a lot of people don't understand the biblical term submissive," she said. "My husband and I are very unified but he’s called to love me and I’m called to submit to his leadership."

    She explained it doesn't mean her husband bosses her around in any way.

    "View" co-host Sherri Shepherd joked that most people think of wrestling submission and that she understood what the "Dancing with the Stars" contestant was saying.

    Cameron Bure added that it's not about winning or losing -- but supporting one another.

    In fact, she said if "my husband makes a decision that’s ultimately not a great decision," then he listens to her more the next time "because I'm not complaining."

    Cameron Bure, who has been vocal that she won't be wearing clothes that are too revealing on "DWTS," also commented on her desire to not be too sexy or revealing.

    "My goal is not to be the sexy girl even though I can wear those things, I have the body to wear them," she said. "Sexy-classy, that’s my thing."

    EXCLUSIVE: Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller join Tom Hiddleston on RPC satire.

    Jeremy Irons and Sienna Miller have joined Tom Hiddleston on Jeremy Thomas’ anticipated JG Ballard adaptation High-Rise from Sightseers and Kill List director Ben Wheatley.

    Oscar-winner Irons, who will also shoot Zak Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman this year, will play a visionary architect while the in-demand Foxcatcher star Miller will play his devoted aide who strikes up a relationship with Hiddleston’s character Robert Laing.

    Production is due to get underway in July in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on the project, which HanWay is shopping in Cannes.

    The film centres on a new residential tower built on the eve of Margaret Thatcher’s rise to power, at the site of what will soon become the world’s financial hub. Designed as a luxurious solution to the problems of the city, it is a world apart.

    Enter Robert Laing (Hiddleston), a young doctor seduced by the high-rise and its creator, the visionary architect Anthony Royal (Irons). Laing discovers a world of complex loyalties, and also strikes up a relationship with Royal’s devoted aide Charlotte (Miller).

    But rot has set in beneath the flawless surface. Sensing discord amongst the tenants, Laing meets Wilder, a charismatic provocateur bent on inciting the situation. Wilder initiates Laing into the hidden life of the high-rise and Laing is shocked at what he sees. As the residents break into tribal factions, Laing finds himself in the middle of mounting violence. Violence that he also finds emerging in himself.

    Additional casting is underway on the project scripted by Wheatley’s wife and regular collaborator Amy Jump.

    Thomas said: “I’m excited to adapt another Ballard book, whose books are full of so many ideas, and to be working with Ben and Amy, Tom, Jeremy and Sienna, and working with Ben and the cast in a movie like this is why I love producing films.”

    Wheatley added: “I’ve been a fan of Sienna’s since seeing her heartbreaking role in Factory Girl. There’s a steely resilience in her performances, and I know she will be excellent in her central role in High-Rise.

    “What can you say about Jeremy Irons? From Dead Ringers to Margin Call, Jeremy has been creating indelible performances. He’s one of our finest actors and it’s very exciting to work with him.”

    Previous adaptations of Ballard’s work include RPC’S controversial drama Crash, directed by David Cronenberg, and Steven Spielberg’s epic, six-time Oscar nominee Empire of The Sun.

    HanWay’s Cannes slate includes Everything Will Be Fine from director Wim Wenders starring James Franco and Rachel McAdams; Last Days in The Desert starring Ewan McGregor; Brooklyn starring Saoirse Ronan and Domnhall Gleeson; Todd Haynes’ Carol starring Cate Blanchett and Mia Wasikowska; and Slow West starring Michael Fassbender from See-Saw Films.

    Both actors are in Brazil as a part of the X-Men X-Perience. They had a press conference yesterday (05/15) and today they're going to the premiere of the movie, in São Paulo.

    Some points from the press conference:

    • When asked what they'd do if they could go back in time, like in the movie, McAvoy said he'd tell his younger self to refuse certain parts “I've been in some really bad movies” he said, not mentioning any in particular and then added “But what I'd really like to do is see myself when I was five, see what I was up to”. Stewart said if he could change something on his past “I'd tell myself to have more fun”.

    • They took gifts from the audience and signed a journalist's comic book.

    • When asked about portraying a more human side to Professor X than Patrick Stewart, McAvoy said that although the heroes have “superproblems” they're, in the end, human problems: “They suffer from prejudice, they have dilemmas like us. And I take that to the part, because people relate batter when they see themselves on the screen. It's an honor to have worked with Patrick and Ian [McKellen], they're great actors. I know I'm going to get criticized on this part precisely because it was played by such a great actor too.”

    • Stewart then added that “I have great admiration for James, for the work he's done. He was the best option to play Xavier's past. We're very different actors, physically too. But James did a great job. I've watched the movie a couple of times and in a lot of scenes I see myself on Jame's Xavier.” he then joked that “[James] could be Captain Picard if they ever make a younger version of him in 'Star Trek; Days of Future Past'.”

    • James McAvoy was asked about what superpower he wanted to have when he was a child and said: “When I was a kid I wanted to have the ability to make people like me. I wanted to have more confidence, like a superhero. Another thing would be to be invisible to escape certain situations”.

    • About the costumes, Stewart said that he loved wearing the black leather outfit because it made him look tougher and McAvoy said that the yellow and blue outfit from First Class was too tight and that he wanted to wear Magneto's costume from the first movies: “Ian McKellen's costume was awesome and showed that the character was really powerful”.

    • McAvoy said that he hopes to get bald like the future Xavier played by Stewart, but that filming on Days of Future Past ended with his character still having all his hair. “When we were finished and no one asked me to go bald, it was a bit frustrating. I hope on the next movie I can show up with no hair.”

    • A reporter joked about asking his questions psychically and the actors played along: "Yes, I am wearing underwear" McAvoy said. "It's... Let me see... Orange!"

    • Stewart said that the biggest lesson he learned from playing Professor X was that "To change something in this world, you need to get involved and act. We're living at a time of much resentment, hatred and violence. I simply cannot read the news." He also said that in the movie "You see mutants from both sides helping each other and, more importantly, taking care of each other.".

    King Henry (Alan Van Sprang) is willing to pay any price for England. Even his own son's life!
    Will Francis (Toby Regbo) really die at the hand of his own father on Reign? Hey, crazier things have happened on the series...including Henry screwing a girl out of window. Literally. (Have we mentioned how much we love this show?!)
    In an exclusive sneak peek from the CW hit's season one finale, titled "Slaughter of the Innocence," King Henry oh-so-casually plots his son's death. And you thought your relationship with your father was messed up!

    And not only is King Henry planning on hosting a funeral for his heir soon, he's also planning another royal wedding—his own, to Francis' wife, Mary (Adelaide Kane)!
    Yep, Henry is officially redefining the term "Mad King." (Sorry, Game of Thrones!)
    Fortunately, it seems like Francis and Mary will be one step ahead of murderous Henry, as the episode description hints that the young couple will be forced to make some difficult decisions that could change the course of history when the King's cruelty and insanity reaches a new fevered pitch.
    Reign's season one finale airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on the CW.

    Well, that didn't take long!

    Now that The CW has officially ordered The Flash to series, can exclusively reveal that the first Arrow-Flash crossover will occur much sooner than fans might've expected: Stephen Amell, who plays Arrow's emerald archer Oliver Queen, appears in The Flash pilot!

    The Arrow spin-off stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, a scientist who's gifted with the power of super-speed in the aftermath of a freak accident that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. Given that Barry originated on Arrow, it seems only fitting for Oliver to return the favor, but there's a twist: The Arrow isn't visiting Barry's hometown of Central City.

    "In the Flash pilot, Barry comes to me," Amell tells "[It's a] little snippet in the Flash pilot where he and I share a scene together, it's in his pilot, but [filming] it felt like our show because he's coming to Starling City. That, to me, was one of the most rewarding things that I did as an actor because it was essentially the same crew that we used for our pilot, and it was two years later and it was the same director. It was like going back in time. [Flash and Arrow director] David Nutter asked me to be a part of the pilot and I will never say no to David Nutter."

    One can only hope that this early synergy opens up the possibility for many more crossovers to come, especially since the spin-off hails from Arrow's Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and DC Chief Geoff Johns. "We'd be insane if we didn't do crossover stuff," Amell adds. "I don't know that it has to be an event or big moments, but the shows share a universe, and not utilizing that fact would be insane. I'm sure that we will at some point."

    Chris Colfer is attached to star alongside Sir Ian McKellen in Noel, a biopic focusing on the early life of gay English playwright Noel Coward.

    Screen Daily has exclusively announced the news that Noel, a biographical film about Noel Coward, has landed Glee’s Chris Colfer to star as the playwright in his youth. The project is also in casting talks with British legends Vanessa Redgrave and Sir Ian McKellen. Colfer seemingly confirmed his involvement by posting a photo of Coward on his Instagram account, moments after Screen Daily’s article went live.

    Colfer – who was cast in Glee as an unknown 18 year old – hasn’t chosen to pursue many “extracurricular” acting jobs in the five years since Glee’s premiere, preferring to work on his own projects as a writer. He served as screenwriter, executive producer and star of 2012′s Struck By Lightning, also penning a novelization of his dark teen film, and the third instalment of The Land of Stories, his New York Times best-selling children’s fantasy series, is due for release this summer.

    Aside from a couple of quick voice-over parts, Chris Colfer hasn’t appeared on screen in a fictional role other than Kurt in Glee and Carson Phillips– his own Struck By Lightning creation. It’s unlikely that this is due to a lack of offers – he won a Golden Globe in 2011 for portraying Kurt, he’s received several Emmy nominations, and he’s lauded as one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars.

    With the finishing line of Glee in sight, it’s possible that Colfer is now looking ahead to what life after Glee has to offer, or it could simply be that, out of all the offers that must come his way, he finally found a project that spoke to him. Given that Kurt Hummel didn’t exist until Chris Colfer showed up in Glee’s audition room – the part was written specifically for him– and that laying a rose at the grave of Noel Coward is a legitimate entry on Kurt’s bucket list, it’s safe to assume that Colfer has an affinity for the English playwright, who is today – like Kurt Hummel and Chris Colfer – seen as a gay icon.

    Noel Coward was born in southwest London at the turn of last century. He was known – in addition to his nearly 50 published plays and his work as an actor, director and screenwriter for film – for his wit and flamboyance, and for his influence on 20th century writers. Some of his more famous works include Easy Virtue, which had a 2008 film adaptation starring Colin Firth, and Private Lives, a play which has experienced countless Broadway and West End revivals, starring – over time – everyone from Maggie Smith to Sex In The City’s Kim Cattrall.

    Coward, both the man himself, who died in 1973, and his many works, are quintessentially English, a staple of the history of London theatre, so it will be interesting to see Chris Colfer – a California native with an admitted obsessive love for period drama and British culture in general– take on a role which may have been more expected to go to a young British actor. Noel – which was developed by the BFI (British Film Institute) with the support of the Noel Coward Estate – aims to shoot in the late summer, so with Glee’s next season not returning until 2015, Colfer will have plenty of spare time to perfect his English accent!

    What are your thoughts on Chris Colfer portraying Noel Coward in Noel?

    Legend rules for a second week with 'All of Me,' while Paramore scores its first top 10 with 'Ain't It Fun'

    John Legend's "All of Me" leads the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week, while Paramore, which has been charting on the Hot 100 for seven years, notches its first top 10 at last, as "Ain't It Fun" ascends 13-10.

    As we always do on Wednesday, let's run down the numbers behind the chart's top 10.

    "All" holds at No. 1 despite drops for a second straight week in the Hot 100's three metrics (airplay, sales and streaming). It rules the Radio Songs chart for a third week (184 million audience impressions, down 5 percent, according to Nielsen BDS); slips from its No. 2 peak to No. 3 on Streaming Songs (7.3 million U.S. streams, down 3 percent, according to BDS); and holds at No. 4 on Digital Songs, where it peaked for eight weeks at No. 2 (144,000 downloads sold, down 11 percent, according to Nielsen SoundScan). The piano ballad does, however, log a 4 percent gain to 2.9 million on-demand U.S. streams, staying at No. 2 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart, which it crowned for four weeks.

    "All" concurrently leads the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a second week, the Pop Songs airplay ranking for a fourth week and Adult Pop Songs for a second week. It previously topped Adult R&B Songs for seven weeks and Rhythmic Songs for one frame.

    "All" narrowly holds off Pharrell Williams' "Happy" (2-2) on the Hot 100, where it ruled for 10 weeks before "All" dethroned it last week. How narrowly? "All" boasts just 0.1 percent more chart points than "Happy," marking the closest battle for No. 1 since Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" displaced Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" by a slightly smaller points margin on the Feb. 18, 2012, chart. (Last week, "All" won by just less than 1 percent.)

    "Happy" spends a fourth week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs (9.3 million, up 7 percent); stays at No. 2 on Radio Songs, which it led for eight weeks (145 million, down 11 percent); and holds at No. 3 on Digital Songs, which it commanded for 11 weeks (156,000, down 11 percent). Meanwhile, Williams' follow-up "Come Get It Bae" debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 82, spurred by a No. 35 start on Digital Songs (46,000, up 235 percent).

    Rap rookie Iggy Azalea ranks at Nos. 3 and 4 on the Hot 100 for a second week, although her first two chart entries switch spots: her own "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, rises a spot to No. 3, trading places with Ariana Grande's "Problem," on which Azalea is featured, after it debuted at No. 3 last week.

    "Fancy" dominates On-Demand Songs for a second week (3.2 million, up 8 percent); flies 4-2 on Streaming Songs (7.4 million, up 12 percent); holds at No. 2 on Digital Songs (216,000, down 2 percent); and surges 14-11 on Radio Songs (71 million, up 29 percent).

    After launching last week with the eighth-biggest opening sum ever for a download, "Problem" claims dual Streaming and Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100 despite its 3-4 drop. It roars 9-4 on Streaming Songs (6.5 million, up 46 percent) and blasts onto Radio Songs at No. 30 (41 million, up 70 percent). It leads Digital Songs for a second week, but tumbles by 46 percent to 235,000 downloads sold (a not atypical plunge for a song that makes a lofty sales start ahead of its radio build).

    Rounding out the Hot 100's top five, Katy Perry's former four-week No. 1 "Dark Horse," featuring Juicy J, holds at No. 5; follow-up "Birthday," meanwhile, jumps 29-25, led by its 34-22 vault on Radio Songs (46 million, up 20 percent) and No. 42 debut on Digital Songs (38 million, up 20 percent).

    DJ Snake and Lil Jon's No. 5-peaking "Turn Down for What" rebounds 7-6 on the Hot 100, reaching the Radio Songs top 10 (12-9; 72 million, up 18 percent). It returns to its No. 5 peak on Digital Songs (6-5; 130,000, up 3 percent) and descends from its No. 6 highpoint to No. 7 on Streaming Songs (6.2 million, down 4 percent). It crowns Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for a seventh week.

    Jason Derulo's No. 3-peaking "Talk Dirty," featuring 2 Chainz, drops 6-7 on the Hot 100; Justin Timberlake's "Not a Bad Thing" holds at its No. 8 Hot 100 peak, powered by advances on Radio Songs (5-4; 116 million, up 9 percent) and Streaming Songs (24-21; 2.4 million, up 4 percent); and, Idina Menzel's No. 5 hit "Let It Go" remains at No. 9, as its parent album, the soundtrack to Disney's "Frozen," gives way to the "Now 50" compilation after 13 weeks atop the Billboard 200.

    Paramore posts the week's lone new Hot 100 top 10, as "Ain't It Fun" climbs 13-10 to mark the pop/rock trio's first top 10. The band had previously peaked as high as No. 24 with both "The Only Exception" (2010) and prior single "Still Into You" (in November). The group first appeared on the chart in July 2007 with "Misery Business," which went on to reach No. 26.

    "Fun" lifts 9-7 on Radio Songs (78 million, up 14 percent), with airplay accounting for 50 percent of its Hot 100 points; sales make up 35 percent and streaming, 15 percent. The track holds at No. 13 on Digital Songs (74,000, down 11 percent) and departs Streaming Songs after a week at the chart's No. 50 anchor position (1.7 million, down 2 percent).

    The song concurrently becomes Paramore's first No. 1 on Hot Rock Songs (2-1). It displaces Bastille's "Pompeii," which drops to No. 2 after 12 weeks at No. 1 (and falls out of the Hot 100's top 10, dropping 10-11).

    With its bouncy, pop lean and gospel-choir bridge, "'Ain't It Fun' is very different from songs we've written in the past," says Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams. "I grew up on pop, funk and soul. We really got to show off our roots in this song."
