Looks like there is a new hope AND a new director!
These are not the news developments that JJ Abrams was looking for!
It's been recently announced that Rian Johnson, director of Looper, will both write and direct Star Wars' upcoming Episode VIII and IX effectively taking over duties from JJ.
Looks like JJ's power (unlimited power) will be Lost after Episode VII!
We think Disney's choice is pretty stellar…interstellar, that is!

The Olympics were cool and all, but Gabby Douglas got to take over Radio Disney!
During the show, they talked about all sorts of stuff — from the gold medals to her new book, Grace, Gold and Glory : My Leap of Faith, which is a memoir of everything she's done so far! We hope she writes another one when she's old some day, it would be an amazing companion piece!
Plus, she has an upcoming guest appearance on Disney XD's Kickin' It, where she plays herself — it premiers this summer! Before then, though, you can totes hear her on Radio Disney, as that will be ready for your ears on May 13th!
So fab! We're glad everything seems so great for you, Gabby!!

And another one bites the dust.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton may not be able to get their hands on Hermes, but that's not the case for Bulgari.
The luxury group announced on Monday they struck a deal with the Bulgari family, who gave up 51% of their controlling stake of the jewelry company for 16.5 million shares of LVMH.
And as if that wasn't enough, Bulgari earned themselves two seats on the LVMH board.
Not a bad deal if you ask us.

To the tune of up to $10 BILLION dollars.
Note to ourselves: Invent simple internet websites. Pick up dry cleaning.
It's being reported that both Google and Facebook execs are in early talks to purchase that crazy little website we call Twitter. (Where's MySpace? Get in the game!)
While it's still pretty early to expect an actual purchase, it IS still innersting to hear that Twitter, while being valued at that staggering number, only raked in $45 Million in revenue last year:
"A valuation for Twitter of between $8 billion and $10 billion would be "remarkable" given that Twitter had revenue of $45 million last year and is only estimated to have about $100 million in sales for 2011."
Good for the guys over Twitter, that's for sure!
