July 1, 2011 5:41 pm

Eminem and Royce da 5’9” return as Bad Meets Evil. The duo is best known for collaborating on a self-titled song that appeared on Eminem’s major-label debut album The Slim Shady in 1999.

Bad Meets Evil split up in the early 2000s, after Royce fell out with Eminem’s group, D12.

The duo has reunited and they are back with the super long awaited Bad Meets Evil EP Hell: The Sequel. On this venture they team up with the R&B-pop hottie Bruno Mars, to sing the hook on the new single “Lighters.” Some listeners may be surprised with the sentimental tone, but this catchy cut finds the duo dropping earnest bars about their pursuit of artistic greatness.


AT 40 Focus: Watch Cameron Diaz’s 80′s Inspired Car Wash Scene [VIDEO]

Cameron Diaz, usually known for playing the good girl in light-hearted comedies, has taken on a new role in “Bad Teacher.” In the movie Cameron plays a gold-digging, foul-mouthed, junior high teacher.

Cameron says her character in “Bad Teacher,” Elizabeth Hasley was a fun roll to play. “Because she doesn’t apologize for anything, nothing. She’s doesn’t care, she has no conscience and everybody wishes that they could just say what they want and do what they want to do without ever having a conscience about it.”

For you eighties fans out there, in the movie Cameron pays homage to Tawny Kitaen in the car wash scene. You will remember Tawny, known for her provocative appearance in the Whitesnake video where she rolled around on the hood of the car. The scene was also inspired by Warrant‘s “Cherry Pie.”
