Showbiz Roundup: Thursday 23 July

Here’s some of the showbiz and entertainment stories doing the rounds this afternoon. Dig a little deeper on The Frequency tonight from 8pm!

Jurassic World Hits Top 3

Jurassic World is now the third highest grossing film in movie history. Check out the trailer above.

This year’s dinosaur epic sits behind Titanic and Avatar making 1.4 Billion euro – and overtaking Avengers Assemble.

It’s doubtful the film, starring Chris Pratt, will reach number one though – Avatar made 2.5 billion euro in 2009.

Picasso With A Rebel Heart?

Madonna has compared herself to “great artists like Picasso”.

The singer says she feels ‘inspired’ like the iconic Spanish painter – and intends to follow his lead by working until the day she dies.

Madonna’s 13th album ‘Rebel Heart’ is out now – with a worldwide tour starting next year.

Donny Osmond follows Sam Smith into surgery

Donny Osmond has been told he needs surgery on his vocal chords.

The singer is going to have the operation by the same surgeon who worked on the voice boxes of Adele and Sam Smith.

His shows in September have been cancelled – with Donny expected back at his Las Vegas residency in October.

Spectre: All Out Bond

The latest trailer for the new James Bond film has already been watched 4-and-a-half million times on YouTube.

It only went online yesterday morning. Want the action? Skip the teaser above and watch the new Spectre trailer here.

Spectre – the latest outing for 007 starring Daniel Craig – is out in October.

It’s ‘Ignition Thursday’ Now

Ignition by R. Kelly is the world’s most popular Throwback Thursday song, according to Spotify.

Crazy In Love by Jay-Z and Beyonce and Shaggy’s It Wasn’t Me were also high on people’s lists of nostalgic tracks.

The music streaming service looked at more than 80-thousand playlists containing the words Throwback Thursday or TBT, which is now a global weekly phenomenon.

Five Years Of 1D

One Direction are celebrating their fifth anniversary.

Harry Styles has taken to Twitter to thank all fans who have supported the band for half a decade – adding that they couldn’t have ‘done it without them’.

1D have so far sold 50 million records, achieved 91 number ones around the world and performed live to over 7 and a half million fans.
