GOOD WEEK/ BAD WEEK
The multitalented mogul surpassed the mighty Jay-Z in a Forbes magazine list of the richest hip-hop stars.
After the Internet laughed at the trailer for his film Things Fall Apart, 50 Cent tweeted off-color earthquake humor.
Congratulations, children of the '90s: you're officially old. This fall, cable channel TeenNick will air a nightly block of vintage Nickelodeon shows like Rugrats, Salute Your Shorts and All That, which stars a pre-SNL Kenan Thompson. Network execs made the move after noticing an online fan following. The shows will air from midnight to 2 a.m., so a new generation of kids probably won't be awake to watch Clarissa explain it all.
On March 11, shortly after announcing the departure of director Julie Taymor, producers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark again pushed back the opening of the troubled Broadway musical, this time to June 14. Will the sixth time be the charm?

Sub Remake Scuttled
Director Robert Zemeckis isn't living a life of ease these days after the epic fail of Mars Needs Moms, which was made for Disney by Zemeckis' production company. After a disastrous opening weekend (the $150 million Moms took in just $6.9 million in the U.S.), Disney torpedoed Zemeckis' next producing venture, a Yellow Submarine remake that would have used the same animation style as Moms. Zemeckis is now free to see if another studio will float his project.
'Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday. Today is Friday, Friday. We, we, we so excited.'
REBECCA BLACK, teen singer, in her viral music-video hit "Friday," which was watched more than 9 million times after Internet buzz that it was the "worst song ever." While that is almost certainly not true, the lyrics leave much to be desired.
After several years away, Kate Moss returned to the runway to close out Louis Vuitton's fall-fashion show in Paris. But she did so with cigarette in hand, cheekily ignoring both a French ban on indoor smoking and Britain's No Smoking Day.
