This husky-voiced funny girl is about to get reeaalllll serious — about Broadway, that is!!!
Emma Stone is reportedly in talks to star in the much-anticipated revival of Cabaret!
Um, yes please!!!!
If Emma is in fact cast, she would take on the iconic role of Sally Bowles — the American underground club singer with a drama-filled life that stirs the plot.
The actress would be filling the glamorous shoes of former Sallies including Judi Dench, Natasha Richardson, and — YES — LIZA MINELLI!!!!!
Sounds like a far cry from Gwen Stacy, but we know our uber-talented gurl crush can do it.
Better start resting up those vocals sweetie-pie because they would be crazy to NOT hire you!!!

Another Broadway legend is coming to Smash! And it's about g-ddamn time!!
We couldn't be more excited for this latest casting news…
Liza Minelli will be joining season 2 of Smash for a midseason episode titled "The Surprise Party."
NBC boss Robert Greenblatt is a HUGE fan and commented:
"I had the pleasure of working with Liza when we restored her landmark television special Liza With a Z at Showtime, and to see her artistry up close and personal is a thing to behold."
Oh, we can only imagine the fierceness that's going to come from this! Get your jazz hands ready, kids, because season 2 begins Feb. 5!

"The biggest misconception people have about my mother is that she was so unhappy. I think people enjoy thinking that — some of them, anyway. They see the tragedy as opposed to the fact that she understood how to play tragedy.
I remember somebody at school once said something really mean about her: 'Oh, Judy does too much of this or that, she drinks too much.' And I came home from school crying; my mother asked me what was wrong and I told her. And then she said, 'You know what? You let everybody say what they're gonna say, and we'll go get a hamburger.' "

We may have another Liza Minelli/David Gest situation on our hands, folks!
Demi Moore has recently been linked romantically to beauty mogul Scott-Vincent Borba, who apparently, is also looking to become the next pop sensation, and even just released a music video for his debut single, Skin Deep!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)…if you dare!
We don't want to pass judgment, but it seems as though there's something just a smidge too fabulous about him!
Have fun, you two!

She hasn't said much about him since his passing, so it's nice to know he is still in her thoughts.
Yesterday, Liza Minnelli visits Ellen DeGeneres on her show and the pair took a moment to reminisce about Liza's dear friend, Michael Jackson.
Watch the video to hear Liza speak so kindly of him and what it was like watching him grow up. (above)
She knew a side to MJ that so very few people did. How lucky they both were to have this friendship.

"I think she’s terrific. When I’m chatting to her, she’s just normal, the opposite of grand. We’ll meet in a restaurant with friends. Or hang out at a party. She’s always interesting and interested. She’s smart as hell and keeps her eyes peeled. She misses nothing."

John Travolta, Liza Minelli, Kelly Preston, and James Taylor grabbed some grub at Serendipity 3, followed by a rad round of delicious sundaes!
And here's what kind they had:
A spy says the group finished off the meal with a surfeit of sundaes, including Travolta's favorite, hot fudge. Minnelli and Taylor had butterscotch, while Preston opted for a "Coward's Portion" banana split.
YUM! Butterscotch sounds INcredible right now! Also LOLz at "Coward's Portion"!
Hope you all had your fill!
John! We're ready for some Gotti!
