A Few More Things: Justin Timberlake, Kristy Lee Cook & The French Nuns
Bringing Sexy Back To Target
In December fans will have the chance to dress like Justin Timberlake when his William Rast collection for Target hits shelves at the retail giant.
The limited edition collection will be available for a month and feature denim, outerwear and sportswear for men and women.
Target has previously offered designer collaborations by prestigious designers including Zac Posen, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rodarte and Proenxa Schouler.
Timberlake launched William Rast with his childhood friend Trace Ayala in 2005. The singer says the line’s fall runway collection was inspired by road trips between the Mississippi River and the West Coast.
Kristy Lee Cook Goes Country
Kristy Lee Cook, the seventh place finalist on the seventh season of “American Idol,” is hosting a new reality show that will feature the country singer hunting deer and turkey as well as searching for a new record label.
“Goin’ Country” begins Sunday on the sports-oriented cable TV channel Versus.
“I know a lot of people who watch hunting shows and they get kind of bored with them, you know, with the same old thing, in the stand doing this and that,” Cook said. “So we tried to make it a little more real life with my music life in Nashville, trying to make it as a singer, and my life at home with the horses and barrel racing and my foundation for rescuing horses, and then hunting as well.”
The show will feature Cook hunting turkey in Nashville with country singer Aaron Tippin, hunting deer in Texas with fellow “Idol” finalist Blake Lewis and hunting exotic deer in Missouri with singer Jake Owen and his twin brother Jarrod.
After releasing her debut Why Wait in 2008 on Arista, Cook parted ways with the label and is currently searching for a new record deal.
French Nuns Face Death Threats
After winning a record deal from Universal Music, a group of nuns from Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l’Annonciation near Avignon, France, has learned that fame can quickly attract scary Internet trolls.
The nuns uploaded a clip of their Gregorian chants online to find that the comment section soon included a number of death threats.
“There were threats written in English saying that these nuns had to be killed,” French newspaper La Provence reported, according to Reuters.
The police were informed and asked to keep tabs on the convent.
Reuters notes that the threatening comments on the website have been removed.
The nuns earned the record deal by beating out 70 other religious orders from North America and Africa. Universal Music is also home to Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stons and Elton John.
