If I was famous and all chummy with the badass rappers and actors of the world then I’d definitely invite Will Smith to my party. The actor freestyle rapped at Gabrielle Union’s 40th birthday bash in Miami while performer Doug E Fresh beat boxed.
The Men in Black actor spit an impromptu freestyle, performed “Summertime” and OF COURSE moved on to the theme song from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (because that’s what everyone was secretly waiting for). Smith’s kids Willow (11) and Jaden (14) either think their dad is the COOLEST in the world (imagine them on take your parents to school day) or they’re all like “Dad!! You’re on YouTube AGAIN?”) I’m betting on the former.

Will Smith let it slip to a Brazilian website that there will be a couple celebrity cameos in the third installment of Men in Black III and Lady Gaga will be one of the ‘surprises.’
“We have a couple of celebrity cameos, but I think I cannot reveal who they are,” Smith told the website. “We must keep as a surprise that Lady Gaga appears.”
We’re not sure what character Lady Gaga will play but she’d certainly make an amiable alien, considering some of the costumes we’ve seen her rock. I’ve taken the liberty of going one step further to help the film’s costume design team by compiling a photo anthology to inspire them, with quick character profiles.
1) This Kermit the Frog-inspired look, created by Jean Charles de Castelbajac, would be the perfect look for Oeshu, the slimy but fun loving green alien. It’s the PG, family friendly option of the bunch.
2) Gaga was clearly going for a Queen of Hearts look with this sheer red dress from Alexander McQueen. It’s ideal for an ambitious queen trying to save her homeland.
3) I have Men in Black covered if they’re going for an eerie, sci fi incubation scene in which Lady Gaga emerges from her shell. Gaga arrived in this giant egg at the Grammys. It’s styled by Nicola Formichetti.
4) Perfect for the evil alien seductress. The meat dress, designed by Franc Fernandez, is made of local meat from a Los Angeles butcher shot. The presumed smell of the dress would be ideal for method actors but preservation might be costly.

The trailer for third “Men In Black” installment is finally out today. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back as Agents J and K to kick some major mutant butt.
The Los Angeles Times reports the third film has the duo travelling back in time to the 1960s, where Will Smith’s character encounters a much younger version of his partner, played by Josh Brolin.
“Men in Black 3? is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend, 2012. The trailer does a good job at exciting MIB fans for more sci-fi action.
Although he is busy working on the next Men In Black film, rumor has it Smith is getting back into the recording booth.
“We’re working on Will Smith, bringing him back. That’s actually him on the other line right now,” Lamar “Mars” Edwards told XXL Magazine by phone in a story that ran Thursday.
To celebrate this news, let’s watch a classic Will Smith music video:
Actor Rip Torn will appear before a judge in Connecticut to face allegations that he broke into a bank with a loaded gun while drunk, reports CBC. The 78-year-old will be arraigned Monday on burglary and firearm charges.
