Gaga and Bieber in "MIB3"

27 Apr – For those who are not convinced that Lady Gaga is a space alien are about to get some confirmation, for according to Toronto Sun, the "Born This Way" singer and Canadian pop star Justin Bieber will be appearing as cameos in the upcoming Barry Sonnenfeld sequel, "Men In Black 3".

It is not surprising to feature brief looks of the singers in "Men In Black 3", for the previous instalments also saw the same trend. Particularly noteworthy is the shots of Steven Spielberg, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone and George Lucas on the alien surveillance board at Men in Black headquarters.

"I can't remember who we had in the second one, but in this one there are a few people that you'll see up on the surveillance board including Lady Gaga, Tim Burton, who probably knows more about aliens than I do, and let's see who else... Justin Bieber," Sonnenfeld said.

Apparently, not every celebrity can appear as extraterrestrials in Sonnenfeld's space comedy franchise.

"One of the joys is deciding who you would put up on the board, who you would tell the world is an alien," said Sonnenfeld.

He added, "And A) the challenge is you have to get permission from these celebrities and B) you don't want to go with people that are either a flash in the pan, or political, or people that then in 10 years no one will know who you're talking about."

Gaga and Bieber are not the only singers that are involved in the film. American rapper and pop singer Pitbull have been tapped to write and perform the film's theme song, which is titled "Back In Time".

"Men In Black 3" will see Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reprising their lead roles as Agent J and Agent K, respectively. When veteran MIB field agent Agent J learns that his partner's life and the fate of Earth are at stake, he travels back in time to 1969 to stop an alien criminal named Boris from assassinating K and changing the course of history of the planet. There, he teams up with the younger version of Agent K (Josh Brolin), while facing a 24-hour time limit or he will be trapped in the past forever.

The long-delayed "Men in Black 3" will hit the big screens in Malaysia and Singapore on 24 May.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
