During an interview with the Associated Press, USHER beamed with excitement over his role.
“You couldn’t find a more stylized boxer than Sugar Ray Leonard. He was an incredible motion guy, the way he moved around the ring, and I think my dancing will make it easier for me to pick up his moves. I’ve been working on familiarizing myself with the ring, sparring and just understanding how to move in the ring.”
Aside from mastering LEONARD’s boxing techniques, USHER has to drop 22 pounds before the production of the film takes place to match LEONARD’s 150 pound stature.
Hands of Stone, set to chronicle the life and career of boxer, ROBERTO DURAN will include an intense fight scene where DURAN and LEONARD battle for the WBC welterweight title.
BROWN’s addition to the RHOH cast comes months after the departure of cast member, ROBIN THICKE, who left because of scheduling conflicts.

The five time Grammy award winning singer, LAURYN HILL miraculously managed to pay off $900,000 worth of tax debt off just one day before she was scheduled to be sentenced for failure to pay taxes from 2005 and 2007.
HILL faced up to three years in prison, if she did not pay back the owed $504,000 in back taxes and over $400,000 in state taxes combined with other penalties and late fees.
According to a statement released by HILL’s attorneys, “Ms. Hill has not only now fully paid prior to sentencing her taxes, which are part of her criminal restitution, but she has additionally fully paid her federal and state personal taxes for the entire period under examination through 2009.”
HILL took to Tumblr to as she debuted her new song “Neurotic Society,” with the message, “Hello All: Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!”CLICK INSIDE TO HEAR LAURYN HILL'S NEWEST TRACK!!!
