The actress is hosting Saturday Night Live on October 19, and the musical guest will be Eminem.
Kerry is over the moon about the hosting gig, and meeting the rapper is clearly going to be a high point.
‘I’m so excited ‘ it’s true! I’m a huge Eminem fan,’ Kerry told Access Hollywood. ‘So, that’s going to be big for me personally.’
The Emmy-nominated actress is known for playing Olivia Pope on hit TV show Scandal. But she is greatly looking forward to indulging in her creative side by hosting SNL.
‘It’s fun that I get to be smart Kerry here and silly Kerry there,’ she said. ‘I feel like I’m going to comedy camp for a week. So I won’t be able to tell you anything until I get there.’
While Kerry doesn’t know what other sketches will air on Saturday night, she is thrilled to do a live show. And she feels lucky to be able to prove her comedy chops.
‘I’m really, really excited! I’m very excited. I feel like I’m getting to wear a lot of my different hats right now.’
Kerry’s co-stars on Scandal are very supportive of her debut hosting duties, including on-screen love interest Tony Goldwyn.
‘You know, she plays a more serious character on TV, but Kerry is the first one on our show to be creating mayhem,’ Tony said. ‘So, she’s gonna be great.’

Nick Cannon says he doesn’t want his children in the entertainment business.
The America’s Got Talent host, 33, has two children with wife Mariah Carey, 44 ‘ two and a half year old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
Nick says that while his children are very talented, he hopes they choose a different path in life.
‘My kids have talent. It is cool to see them singing and my son plays the drums. It is in their DNA,’ Nick tells People magazine. ‘But the only reason why I say I don’t want my kids to be in entertainment is because I want them to have a sense of accomplishment.’
Nick believes it would be too easy for the twins to be like their parents, and he hopes they become athletes or go to college. The singer wants his children to stretch themselves and try hard, and a career in entertainment wouldn’t do that for them.
‘When your parents are entertainers that is the easiest thing – that’s a given. I would rather them strive for something like sports or education, something that is technically outside their wheelhouse,’ Nick said.
Although Nick doesn’t want his kids to be in the industry, he does admit it has its perks. Working in TV and radio means he gets to spend plenty of time with his family.
‘I mean, when you think about it there are so many other occupations that take the parents away from the home for a long period of time,’ Nick says.
‘The beauty of being an entertainer is I probably get to spend more time with my kids than the average person because I’m not on a nine to five schedule.’
Kelly Osbourne reportedly wants her father to be Miley Cyrus’ sober coach.
The TV star has battled drug problems in the past and spent time in rehab to help overcome a dependence on prescription medication.
Her father Ozzy is also an addict and earlier this year admitted abusing drugs and alcohol again, although he has since cleaned up.
Miley’s wild behaviour has caused some to suggest she may be heading for a meltdown, with her friend Kelly one of those who is concerned about her.
“Kelly went so far as to offer her dad’s services to be Miley’s sober coach, but Miley was so offended,” a source told National Enquirer.
“She told Kelly that she isn’t an addict and to mind her own business. Miley doesn’t want to hear anything that goes against her image overhaul. It’s like she is living in a bubble.”
As well as cutting her hair and talking about drugs via her song lyrics, Miley has shocked with a number of provocative photoshoots over recent months. She is also a fan of posing with her tonguebhanging out, something which Kelly teased her about on her TV show Fashion Police.
While bashing her behaviour in public, Kelly is said to have spoken to the former Disney star about it privately.
“Kelly takes her sobriety very seriously. Her dad and brother have also struggled with drugs and Kelly has seen too many good friends get sucked into that destructive culture. Kelly called Miley up and really lit into her and warned her that the bad-girl shtick was getting old real quick,” the insider said.
Miley recently confirmed her engagement to Liam Hemsworth is off and although she has claimed she is already over the relationship, some have speculated the breakup has contributed to her racy behaviour.
Chris tweeted a link to the the raunchy new track, a steamy ballad about his connection with an unnamed girl.
‘Girl we ain’t never finished; I’m tryna make love for eternity,’ say some of the lyrics. He also says he wants to ‘taste the tears when we’re together’ and ‘make sweet love’ forever.
Chris, 24, reportedly slammed ex-girlfriend Rihanna in the lyrics from new song I’m Still. The track refers to how everybody in the industry has been with his girlfriend ‘ and Rihanna was said to be insulted by the song.
‘She really thought she could be cool and civil with him but she sees she can’t,’ a source told Hollywood Life.
‘News travels fast no matter where she is on the globe and he knew that this would get back to her. Things like this used to upset her but now it’s to be expected from a childish person like Chris.’
Although Rihanna is allegedly angry with Chris for his lyrics, she is not letting him get to her. The Umbrella star is reportedly determined to ignore his behaviour and focus on herself.
‘It’s sad but she can’t let him break her,’ the source added. ‘She’s got her heart intact and wants him to do and be well. Hopefully one day he will really grow up and be a man. But she thinks that’s a
long, long ways away.’

The 19-year-old pop sensation has been embroiled in controversy within the past year and it is widely speculated he has been smoking marijuana.

They go on until about four or five in the morning. Everyone is saying there is a lot of ‘sizzurp’ [codeine syrup] but that’s not true, the only drug used by some people is marijuana. Justin knows about the parties and doesn’t mind ‘ but there’s always a bodyguard to make sure no girls are taking pictures.’

Ellen DeGeneres ends each show by telling viewers, “Be kind to one another,” and she lived up to the mantra on Friday.

What Hoidahl didn’t know was that DeGeneres planned to pay her back — and then some.
