Ludacris spotted on the set of the music video for his single Country Sh*t (Remix) in College Park, Atlanta earlier this week (May 4). Also spotted on set were fellow rappers Big K.R.I.T. and Bun B.
Big K.R.I.T. originally released the single last September, with Ludacris and Bun B joining him for the remix.
The New York Times had a really interested write-up on a K.R.I.T. concert last year in Manhattan:
Sometimes online adulation can translate to real-world attention: Big K.R.I.T. recently signed to Def Jam. On Wednesday night he mostly stuck to material from his recent mixtape "K.R.I.T. Wuz Here," an understated and wondrous release emphasizing easy, slow-rolling Southern pacing and a strong moral center ...
In the last five years Big K.R.I.T. has released a steady stream of mixtapes, each of them solid; "K.R.I.T. Wuz Here" is the most thoughtful and introspective among them, though he doesn't sacrifice his desire to be anthemic. On Wednesday, even when the subject matter was dark, he had his chest puffed out on songs like "Viktorious" and "Hometown Hero." And even for this New York crowd, Big K.R.I.T. didn't polish his roots at all. On a new song, "Now or Neva," he celebrated his background: "We took the country" sound — to put it cleanly — "and snuck it through the back door."
*11 Ludacris and Big K.R.I.T. pictures total in the gallery:
Can this picture get any cuter?! Elisabetta Canalis is seen on the set of her new photoshoot for PETA. The Italian actress is one of the newest stars to pose naked for the animal rights foundation's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign. Also set to bare all soon for the campaign is Cameron Diaz. If you don't recognize Canalis, she is dating none other than the hunky George Clooney.
"I decided to get involved with PETA campaign when I learned how brutal the fur industry is for the sake of fashion. I have to say that doing PETA's campaign has always been my dream. I think this is the best reason why I get naked in my life," she added. "This is really a right cause."
Thank you Elisabetta for showing your support for those who can not speak for themselves!
Channing Tatum is spotted on the set of the new 21 Jump Street movie Wednesday in New Orleans (May 4). 21 Jump Street? . . . more like 21 Hunk Street!
Jonah Hill and Ice Cube also star in the film. Hill and Tatum both play undercover detectives sent back to high school to pose as students. Johnny Depp - star of the original 21 Jump Street TV show - has a small cameo.
Tatum told MTV News that the film adaptation of the popular TV show will be completely original (i.e. it's not a spoof):
"It's an entirely new imagination of what 21 Jump Street is. We're not doing a spoof whatsoever. It will be crazy characters that are in very unreal circumstances sometimes."

Mark Wahlberg is spotted getting primped and preened on the set of Ted in Boston last week (April 29). What a handsome guy!
Make sure you check out the Ted page for all the latest pics from set.
The Salem News is reporting that Ted will be moving to the nearby town of Swampscott to shoot a party scene at a luxury home. The home belongs to Ron, a local real estate developer who told the paper that he's excited for the community:
"It's not about my house. It's about Swampscott. It's about Massachusetts. Swampscott is on the map. Massachusetts is on the map."
The state offers a 25-cents-on-every-dollar tax credit to filmmakers, producers and studios that shoot at least half their movie in the Bay State, according to the Massachusetts Film Office's website.
"I think it creates jobs, and it's good for the economy," Ron said, adding the film crew was "very professional" in terms of turning his home into a movie set and being careful with his stuff. The town was also very cooperative with the production.
"It's a pro-business attitude in this economy," Ron said. "It's an attitude the decision makers have to adopt."
Cindy Crawford is seen in Texas yesterday on the set of a photoshoot for her "Cindy Crawford Home" collection for Rooms To Go (April 4). The sexy supermodel - who lives year-round in Malibu, California - tweeted the pic and said: "This is as about Texas as I get!"

Reel Love is being produced under the new "CMT Original Movies" division of the country music network. The first two films being produced are LeAnn's film and To the Mat, starring Ricky Shroder and Laura Bell Bundy. Expect a mix of romantic comedies and music-based films to come from the new CMT enterprise.
Mary Beth Cunin, senior vp of programming strategy at CMT, said in a statement:
"We've had great ratings success programming with acquired theatrical romantic comedies, so it is only natural for us to create original stories that are tailor made for the CMT audience."
