NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Stars head to New Orleans Monday for the red carpet premiere of the movie "Deepwater Horizon."

Directed by Peter Berg, the film is inspired by the true story of the gulf rig explosion in 2010. The movie will focus on the last 12 hours leading up to the blast and showcase the courage of the men and women who worked during that time. Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell and John Malkovich are a few of the stars that plan to attend the premiere at the Orpheum Theater.

The movie is in theaters September 30th.

Racism doesn't exist to Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne is catching heat for some comments he made earlier this week. The rapper said the racial makeup of the crowd of one of his shows is an example that there's no such thing as racism.

"I see everybody...I don't have this type of crowd or this type of crowd. My crowd has always been everybody. Thank God."

The New Orleans native made the statement on FOX Sports' show "Undisputed" and shortly after social media quickly reacted by criticizing his comments.

Mother monster's new album

Brace yourself little monsters, Lady Gaga has a new album coming.

"Joanne" will be available October 21st. The 30-year-old singer named the album after her late aunt. Fans should expect many collaborations.

Musical reunion

It's a reunion we've been waiting on and it come soon happen.

Britney Spears named Justin Timberlake as one of the artists she would like to work with one day.

Timberlake was in Toronto at the premiere of his Netflix concert documentary Tuesday when he learned about her comments.

The "Cry Me a River" singer replied, "Absolutely... I'm accessible, give us a call."

Fans were upset when the couple split in 2002, but great music came out of it and now fans patiently wait for some new tunes.
