Upcoming projects

German electronic producer Alexander Ridha, better known as Boys Noize, is set to release his third full-length album titled “Out of the Black” on Oct. 18. The album features one track titled “Got It” with rapper turned reggae singer Snoop Lion. Ridha told music website Spinner that he normally doesn’t feature other artists on his albums but that working with Snoop Dogg was a childhood dream. “Out of the Black” also features fellow German DJ Siriusmo and Los Angeles underground rapper Gizzle. This album has a sound that’s a mix of electro and techno to keep listeners dancing.


Couple Alerts:

“Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have once again decided to get back together. After Stewart’s reported fling with Rupert Sanders, the married director of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” the actress sought Pattinson for reconciliation. The couple stopped by a friend’s birthday party at the Chateau Marmont last weekend.

You’re never too old to find your “happily ever after.” Journey guitarist Neal Schon and Real Housewife Michaele Salahi got engaged last weekend. Schon, 58, popped the question to Salahi, 47, onstage during a concert in Baltimore on Oct. 14.


Recent speculation hints “Bachelorette” star Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up. Before you get carried away, the two have not officially announced their split yet, but several Twitter posts insinuate the couple has called it quits.


On Oct. 15, actress Natalie Portman was spotted getting dessert with her one-year-old son, Aleph, in Austin, Texas. Portman is staying in Texas with her family while she films her latest project.

Actress Reese Witherspoon was out and about running errands in Santa Monica on Oct. 14. It was the first time she had been spotted since giving birth to her third child last month.

Victoria’s Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio was seen last weekend sporting a white bikini at the beach in Malibu. Later that day, she stopped at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood with fiancé Jamie Mazur and their two children.
