Coffee Talk: Will and Jada to Remake 'Uptown Saturday'

Check out why we're sipping a hot cup of cocoa this morning: Drake will receive a major songwriting award, Rihanna is going country, Bobbi Kristina may get her own reality show, and Will and Jada are set to remake the classic film, "Uptown Saturday Night" with Denzel Washington as a possible lead... Here's what you had to say: Paula commented via Facebook: "I love that movie! They will probably do a great job!" Toni wrote via Facebook: "That movie is a classic! Leave it alone!"


Check out why we’re sipping a hot cup of cocoa this morning:

  • Will and Jada are both working hard these days. Black Voices is reporting that the duo is remaking “Uptown Saturday Night” with Denzel Washington supposedly up for the lead. This would a fantastic remake — given the original starred Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier. Who will step in for the other position? May we suggest Will Smith? [Black Voices]

  • Have dreams of making it big? The Apollo will hold auditions for its amateur night starting April 3rd. Those selected will perform during the newest season of Amateur Night and the ultimate winner will receive a $10,000 prize. [Eurweb]

  • More details are emerging from Oprah’s public diary entries which are published in the April issue of O magazine. Most of her daily writings deal with relationship problems. “It’s a testament to growth and grace that I’ve come this far… I used my journals as therapy. Oh, the time I wasted worrying about men and weight!” [Eurweb]

  • Bobbi Kristina to receive her own reality show? It looks like that’s a strong possibility! “PS Everyone! Guess what? We are currently in the process of meeting about starting my own reality show,” she tweeted. This makes us a little nervous… we’re not sure this is the best route for Ms. Brown. [Radar Online]

  • Could Rihanna be switching genres? Just for one night she will. RiRi is scheduled to perform alongside Sugarland at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The duo will sing a version of “California King Bed.” [The Boom Box]

  • Drake will be honored with the Hal David Starlight Award by the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Congrats to Drake on his accomplishment. [The Boom Box]

  • After weeks of speculation, Nicki Minaj will not be an “X-Factor” judge, although she and Simon Cowell met last week in L.A. to discuss her role. So who will the last two judges be? L.A. Reid has already nabbed one position. [The Urban Daily]
