Is the hype over?

The Jonas Brothers' new film, The 3D Concert Experience, tanked spectacularly at the US box-office. The movie earned $12.7 million (Dh46.6m), which is nowhere near the projected $40m Disney had predicted.

Miley Cyrus' Hannah Montana 3D film earned almost three times that amount in it's opening weekend – and it was in about half as many theatres. Ouch.


Credit cruncher

Prince knows how to treat his fans right. The artist formerly known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince has announced that he will be releasing three new albums as a package for only $11.99 (Dh44).


Staying at united?

Manchester United is reportedly set to offer Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo a $14.5m (Dh53.3m) per year contract in a bid to convince him to stay in the UK, and not transfer to Real Madrid.


You've been served

Bruce Willis is being sued for $4m (Dh14.7m) after walking off the set of a film he was to direct.

According to insiders, Willis "abruptly terminated his services for personal reasons".


Supporting peace

According to reports, Snoop Dogg attended the Nation of Islam's annual Saviours Day convention this week, donating $1000 (Dh3,673) to the organisation. When asked if he was a member, the rapper said yes.
