Look out, Cookie! ‘Empire’ might be getting a visit from another diva by the name of Jennifer Lopez, but is there room for the both of them on the island of Manhattan?
Well she’d certainly fit right in. Jennifer Lopez is in talks to appear on Empire when the smash hit series returns for its second season. The American Idol judge sparked speculation when she was spotted chatting with the series’ executive producer and star Terrence Howard. However, a potential roadblock could stand in JLo’s way if she does in fact want to appear on the series– and no, it isn’t Cookie (Taraji P. Henson)!
On the Mar. 11 episode of ‘Empire,’ a shocking confession revealed the truth about Olivia’s baby bombshell– but does the news mean she and little Lola will be leaving the Lyons for good?
We are still completely shocked by Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) confession on the Mar. 11 episode of Empire that he was actually the father of Olivia’s (Raven-Symone) young daughter. The entire scene had us gasping up until the moment that someone was shot and didn’t make it out alive. Now that the truth is out, after years of lying to Jamal (Jussie Smollett), will Olivia and Lola (Leah Jeffries) be permanently banned from the Lyons den?
Well, we saw this one coming. In a sneak peek for the new episode of ‘Empire,’ Cookie and Malcolm’s chemistry finally gets tested out–and it’s very steamy!
Lucious (Terrence Howard) better not find out about this! On the Mar. 11 episode of Empire, it seems like Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is finally getting what she wants out of her crush on her ex-husband’s security guard, Malcolm (Derek Luke). In this sneak peak, we see the two of them totally make out behind Lucious’ back– certainly nothing can go badly with that right?
Jussie is setting the record straight. The rising star of the breakout hit ‘Empire’ revealed to Ellen that he is gay in an all-new interview. Click to WATCH his powerful message.
Jussie Smollett, 31, has come out as a gay man but wants you to know “there’s never been a closet” that he’s been hiding in regarding his sexuality. The Empire star, who plays aspiring singer Jamal, sat down with Ellen DeGeneres after his March 8 appearance to talk from his heart. Just like his strong-willed character on the hip hop soap, Jussie’s message about his personal life is nothing short of inspirational.
So basically, no one on ‘Empire’ is telling the truth ever. In a sneak peek at the Mar. 4 episode, it’s Anika’s turn to try her hand at deceit. And Cookie, obviously, is not pleased.
I’d be pretty nervous if I were Anika (Grace Gealey). In a sneak peek at the upcoming episode of Empire, Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) fiancee gets caught in what seems to be a big ol’ lie, and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is going to make sure she won’t get away with it. Watch the clip now to see how the former Mrs. Lyon springs into action and–bonus!– the term “bye, Felicia,” is used!
Um, rude! 50 Cent recently trashed not one, but two of our favorite TV shows and, frankly, we’re not too happy about it. Check out the insulting remarks.
Watch your mouth, 50, or we’ll stick Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) on you! Rapper 50 Cent has just likened Fox’s long running musical series Glee to its newcomer musical, Empire and, well, the comparisons are not exactly flattering. Don’t be jealous, 50!
Oh boy. Following Lucious and Cookie’s steamy hookup on last week’s ‘Empire,’ it seems like the on again-off again couple are very much on again– and they’re making out all over the place!
This can only lead to drama. On the Feb. 18 episode of Empire, Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) finally did what we all knew they would do… Ya know. Of course, because it’s Empire, their sneaky hookup was not going to go unnoticed. In the upcoming Feb. 25 episode, it seems as though the two are definitely still at it!
Say it ain’t so! Jamal and Michael have been one of our favorite parts of Fox’s smash hit series ‘Empire,’ but a sneak peek at the new episode has us worried the couple isn’t long for this world. Watch it now!
Following last week’s major Jamal (Jussie Smollett)-related bombshell on Empire, the fallout on the Feb. 18 episode looks to be pretty catastrophic, particularly when it comes to Jamal’s relationship with Michael (Rafael de La Fuente). In this sneak peek for the upcoming episode, we see just how much strain the relationship is under, and they might not be able to pull through!
On the Feb. 11 episode of ‘Empire’ entitled ‘Out, Damned Spot,’ it seems that many of our favorite characters are put in tough situations and forced to make decisions they’d really rather not have to make.
On the Feb. 11 episode of Empire, the familial rivalries continued to deepen as Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) finds out about Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) and Anika’s (Grace Gealey) engagement. At the same time, their respective proteges, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) continue to battle it out through song, while treating each other with about as much kindness as you’d treat a housefly. Oh, and a visitor shows up to pretty much rock the entire family. New week, same Empire. Check out a full recap!
A shocking couple revealed itself on the Feb. 4 episode of ‘Empire,’ and another one was taken to a new level. Actually, it seems that everyone has found themselves in the midst of some relationship drama–romantic or otherwise.
On Empire, it seems that everyone is either scheming to get ahead or dodging threats from others who are trying to do the same. On the series’ fifth episode, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) fears for her life after being tricked into divulging a repressed secret from her past. At the same time, Lucious (Terrence Howard) seeks out a serious fraud so that Empire can go public. Oh, and per usual, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) have it out for one another, leaving Andre (Trai Byers) free to implement his own sabotage.
‘Empire’ is about to get some added star power! Fox has just announced that, joining its hit series for guest arcs will be Jennifer Hudson and Rita Ora!
As if Empire didn’t already have enough diva energy in the form of Taraji P. Henson. Fox’s hiphop centered series has emerged as one of the year’s strongest breakouts, but it’s about to get even stronger. It’s just been announced that powerhouse singers Jennifer Hudson and Rita Ora will be guest starring on the hit drama before the season is through!
New alliances were made and old ones were broken on the Jan. 28 episode of ‘Empire.’ In fact, we’re no longer even sure of who’s sabotaging whom anymore.
It has all seriously hit the fan. On the Jan. 28 episode of Empire, Lucious (Terrence Howard) attempts to maintain his music industry power by stealing a hot artist from a rival record label and it gets, well, messy. Meanwhile, things are just as complicated for the rest of the Lyon family. Jamal (Jussie Smollett) questions everything and takes the backseat while he tries to overcome writer’s block and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) decides it’s time to repair her relationship with Hakeem (Bryshere Gray)– but that doesn’t mean he is willing to do so. Check out the full recap!
The fight for the empire continues! In a sneak peek for the upcoming episode of ‘Empire,’ Cookie makes an announcement that further proves she is in it to win it and she won’t let anyone get in the way. Watch it now!
Well speaking of status! On the Jan. 28 episode of Empire, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is making sure that hers remains superior within Empire Records, and in order to do so, she announces that she will be taking on another client to manage. As you could imagine, the announcement definitely makes a splash– and drives one person to fury!
Hm, this seems a little familiar! If you’ve been watching ‘Empire,’ you know that the familial drama is no joke. But, is a new song from the upcoming episode based on the not-so-scripted conflict between Rihanna and Chris Brown?
FOX’s new hit series Empire tells the story of a music mogul and his industry family, all competing for a piece of the pie. On the Jan. 28 episode, a new song called “Keep It Movin'” will be performed, and some of the lyrics enforce speculation that the show might be drawing from some real life source material. Take a listen and decide for yourself!
‘Empire’ continues to show its dominance. On the third episode of the hip-hop themed series, which aired on Jan. 21, we see the Lyons family take a trip to Philly and get a glimpse at what life might’ve been like had Lucious not made it big– unsurprisingly, it brings up a lot of issues.
Empire‘s third episode, “The Devils Quotes Scripture,” was tense, to say the least. Between Hakeem’s (Bryshere Gray) new girlfriend–and Lucious (Terrence Howard) trying to promote it– we’re still just skimming the surface of the Lyons family’s struggles.
