Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson Duet Again in Surprise A Star Is Born Reunion

Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson Duet Again in Surprise A Star Is Born Reunion
A star was reborn on Sunday night, when Barbra Streisand reunited with her A Star Is Born costar Kris Kristofferson.

The legendary singer, 77, shared the stage with Kristofferson at London’s Hyde Park, the two duetting once again on the song “Lost Inside of You” — one of the many love ballads from their acclaimed 1976 film.

It was a reunion Streisand had first teased back in April, when she posted a photo with Kristofferson to social media along with the caption, “Stay tuned.”

After taking the stage, Streisand called Kristofferson, “one of my favorite leading men,” according to a YouTube video of the number.

Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson Reunite on Stage for ‘Star Is Born’ Duet
Barbra Streisand went deep, not shallow, in her song choices for a massive show Sunday night at London’s Hyde Park. As expected, or at least hoped for, the presence of Kris Kristofferson as an opening act on the bill did result in a “Star is Born” flashback, as the duo revived “Lost Inside of You,” a number from the 1976 movie that some fans insist should be an evergreen, too.

Following the obligatory rendition of “Evergreen” — the other song she co-wrote for the film in question — Streisand brought to the stage “one of my favorite leading men… Here’s a song that we sang together in the movie, right? I love this song,” she declared.

Although the song is unremittingly hopeful in its romanticism, there was added bittersweetness now as it began with the line, “Time has come again…” Streisand’s co-writer on the tune, Leon Russell, is no longer around.

It looks like Bad Boys 3 is finally, really happening this time. We hope. This project has been stuck in development hell for a long time now and there have been more than a few false starts along the way.

That was later made official when Will Smith posted a crazy video officially announcing the sequel is finally happening on social media.

Since then, it's been a revolving door of writers and possible directors. But have things finally smoothed out? Taking to his Instagram account, Martin Lawrence provided a very brief, but firm update on the status of the project.

Wedding Week: A Better Bridesmaid Dress Experience

The process of buying a bridesmaids’ dress has been the same essentially since the beginning of time. The bride picks a gown, the bridesmaids all good-naturedly gripe about it, the bridesmaids all shell out $200 for the dress that they will “definitely wear again,” the dress sits in the back of a closet until it finally makes its way to Goodwill (or even better, a local version of Operation Prom!). If you think the experience is overdue for a revamp, you’re not alone – there’s a whole new wave of websites looking to make things easier, more affordable and all-around better,

Martin Lawrence and Kelsey Grammer Talk Comedy and Chemistry for FX's Partners

When Martin Lawrence heard of Kelsey Grammer's desire to join him on the new FX sitcom Partners, the actor's first thought was, "How can we make this comedy work?" But comedic success has never been tough to figure out for either actor, both of whom made their marks on classic sitcoms. Before breaking out on the big screen in such hits as Big Momma's House, Lawrence spent five seasons playing smart-mouthed DJ Martin Payne on his eponymous Fox sitcom in the '90s, while...

Partners: FX Comedy Likely to Be Cancelled

In the past, Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence have both had successful sitcoms that ran for many years. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the duo's new FX sitcom, Partners, has much of a future. It's very likely to be cancelled.

On Partners, a snobby lawyer (Grammer) and an overly ethics-driven lawyer (Lawrence) become partners and end up helping each other get their lives in order. The rest of the cast includes McKaley Miller, Telma Hopkins, Danièle Watts, Rory O’Malley, and Edi Patterson.

As you may recall, FX made a 10/90 deal for Partners with Lionsgate TV and Debmar-Mercury. If the sitcom's first 10 episodes reached a certain ratings threshold then the cable channel was obligated to order 90 episodes for season two -- assuring the studios would have enough episodes for a (potentially very lucrative) syndication package.

Martin Lawrence Teases 'Bad Boys 3'

The actor, currently doing press for his new series Partners, was on the Conan O’Brien Show and had the following to say when the host brought up rumors that a third film was in the works. “I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer... yesterday and he said it’s real. They’re working on the script, they’re getting close and it all looks good." This seems to support the quote that came from Bruckheimer himself back in April. “It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies. And then,...
