Vin Diesel and Paul Walker shared so many special moments on-and offscreen. And now, Diesel will help plan his costar and friend’s exit from the highly successful Fast and Furious franchise.
“We always took pride in trying to make each one better than the last…” Diesel shared on Facebook on Thursday, Jan. 9, along with a vintage photo of the duo as Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner. “P.s. Tomorrow we meet with the studio, regarding the future of the Fast saga…and the completion of Seven,” he added.
There was much speculation as to whether the late 40-year-old actor would appear in the movie following his tragic death in a fiery car crash on Saturday, Nov. 30 , but Universal Pictures has since confirmed Walker will be in the latest installment of the film franchise.
“Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7 , which will be released by Universal Pictures on April 10, 2015,” the studio said in a statement. ” James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series, and Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return as producers.”
The 46-year-old actor has been using his Facebook page as a way to keep fans updated following the loss of Walker.
Diesel began the new year reflecting about his tremendous loss in 2013 and paying tribute to his late “brother.”
“There was always moments of child-like laughter…We had accomplished so much by 2013…P.s. The complexities of Brotherhood, and the painful void… of it’s absence,” Diesel wrote . He also shared an 18-minute video filled with special interactions with Walker over the years.
“A glimpse… of Dom and Brian… off screen,” Diesel wrote on Facebook on Monday, Jan. 6. The video features multiple clips from Walker and Diesel’s time together, from promoting a film to their car-racing franchise, or just hanging out. At the end, the words, “Miss you…” flash across the screen.
Nicki Minaj is a “Bad Ass Bitch,” indeed.
The rapper shared a series of sexy selfies via Instagram on Friday, Jan. 10—and they make past photo sessions seem tame. One picture featured the former American Idol judge grabbing her left boob, while another image showed Minaj sucking her manicured fingers. In one NSFW shot, the 31-year old musician sticking her tongue in between her middle and index fingers to seemingly mimic cunnilingus.
Yeah, she went there.
NEWS: Nicki Minaj suffers another nip slip Instagram Minaj’s motivations for posting the pictures are unclear, but it’s not the first time she’s put her body on display. After celebrating Halloween in 2013, for example, she posted photos of herself wearing nipple pasties, fishnet tights and a thong . Weeks earlier, she wore star-shaped leopard print pasties .
The rapper-turned-actress joined the social networking site in the summer of 2013 to shut down posers pretending to be her. “I do NOT have Instagram. OnikaM is NOT me,” she tweeted on July 5.
“Guess I have to make a real one to counter attack. I’m sure that’s why Instagram won’t delete it.”

Kim Kardashian is sick of hearing the Photoshop rumors .
The reality TV star recently posted a curvy selfie with pal Blac Chyna that immediately drew scrutiny from outlets claiming she’d manipulated the image.
It’s not the first time Kardashian has been linked to digital alteration, and she’s also been the subject of frequent plastic surgery rumors tied to her weight loss.
On Friday, she struck back.
A Twitter user wrote, “Stop #hating people! Why is it so hard to believe she works out hard for her body? Let her be skinny in peace! You look great!” — which Kardashian retweeted, adding: Preach!

The 19-year-old singer has a famously tumultuous relationship with those who live in near his Calabasas mansion. They have accused him of driving dangerously fast around the community in the past and police have been called after his parties got out of hand.
The latest allegations against the star concern him apparently pelting another property with food.
“[We] spoke to the neighbour who says he heard something banging against his house in Calabasas around 7.30pm Thursday, and when he stepped on to a 2nd floor balcony… he says he saw Justin down below hurling eggs at his front door,” reports TMZ.
The unidentified man claims he immediately shouted at the Canadian heartthrob to ask what he was doing, resulting in Justin aiming the eggs at him.
The singer and his neighbour than exchanged angry words it is claimed and all the while the teenager continued tossing the flimsy food at the house. Eventually he went back to his own property, but decided to call the Sheriff’s Department. He was apparently furious that his home had been defaced by as many as 20 eggs, with the website claiming the gent has had issues with Justin in the past.
It has been confirmed that law enforcement officers attended the scene, where they spoke to the man and took an incident report from him. It remains unclear where the police were able to talk to Justin, whose representative hasn’t spoken about the incident.
It is also unclear if the neighbour in question is the man Justin was accused of spitting at last year.
Things were thought to be looking up for the young star, who has seemingly reunited with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez after they were spotted hanging out together.
At the end of last year Justin insisted he wasn’t a bad person, but was just navigating the best way to grow up in the spotlight. He also sent his fans into meltdown by claiming he was retiring, although his manager Scooter Braun has insisted he is just taking some time off.
The Burn singer first released music in 2009, but she still can’t get her head around the industry and what it entails.
She’s just been nominated for the Brit Awards British Female Solo Artist, which was last year taken home by Emeli Sandé. Ellie will be competing against the likes of Jessie J and Birdy to take home the crown.
“It’s been such an amazing last six months, everything’s just really good and exciting and fun but it’s back to work now because I’ve been chilled out for the past three weeks and now it’s like cameras… It’s quite scary. You can never really get used to this craziness really,” Ellie revealed to heatworld.com. “I’m so happy for them [Jessie J and Birdy]. They’re both amazing singers and they both do very different things; and we all do very different things really. It’s cool to be in the same category as them.”
Ellie’s had a successful 12 months, which saw her top the UK singles charts for the first time with Burn.
She also recorded song Mirror for the movie soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The 27-year-old made no secret of the fact that she’s out to win the Brit Award and get her 2014 off to a successful start.
“I’m not gonna lie, I’d love to win this award. It would be such an honour. Whether I do or not, I don’t know, but it would be a really amazing cherry on the cake, or one of those clichéd phrases,” she laughed.
The Brit Awards will be held in London on February 19.
The Yeezus singer is known more for his rap lyrics and raunchy videos, but friends say he wanted to do something special for his close friend Jay.
Blue Ivy, the first child for Jay and his wife Beyonce Knowles, turned two earlier this week and received a bundle of cards from Beyonce’s loyal fans.
“Kanye wanted to do something personal for his best friend’s baby,” an insider told British newspaper Daily Star.
“So he decided he would write and record a lullaby especially for her. It won’t be released, it’s just for Blue.”
The 36-year-old star is trying his hand at a softer sound in a bid to help Blue go to sleep.
He no doubt has experience soothing young children as his fiancee Kim Kardashian gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter North, in June 2013.
But he hasn’t moved too far away from his usual views, with the lullaby’s lyrics being centred on success and achievement.
“It’s really catchy and slow. Rather than the usual sweet dreams-themed lullaby songs, Kanye raps about how Blue Ivy and Nori will be mega powerful when they’re older. It also mentions how him and Jay Z will work hard to make sure their girls have an easier path than they did,” the source added.
Rumours have circulated that Beyonce and Jay are keen to add to their brood, and 2014 could be the year that Blue gets a new sibling.
“The initial plan was for Beyonce’s album to drop in the New Year, But Jay Z wants next year to be all about baby making. The plan is to start trying just before Beyonce’s world tour ends in Lisbon,” a source close to the couple told British magazine Heat.
