VH1′s biopic about the hip hop/R&B group TLC will begin shooting in early 2013. The remaining members of the band, Chilli and T-Boz, have signed on to be executive producers and consultants on the film. I wonder who they’ll cast as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes?

Beyonce is taking her skillz behind the camera. The award-winning superstar is directing her own HBO documentary, scheduled to air February 16, 2013.

Marion Cotillard looks like she’s in The Cell while gracing the cover of W magazine.

Meanwhile, Tyra Banks is working her fierce magic on the cover of West East magazine.

Brad Pitt is once again speaking out for marriage equality. Pitt told MTV News, “Equality, absolutely, that’s what defines us. It’s what makes us great. If it doesn’t sit well with your religion, let your God sort it out in the end, but that’s us. We’re equal.”
