"Skyfall" is off to a lucrative start. The new Bond film had the second-biggest opening weekend in British movie history, taking in roughly 32 million dollars (USD) at the U.K. box office. That is the biggest British opening weekend for any of the 23 Bond films, and ranks just behind last year's final Harry Potter movie, "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2." "Skyfall" opens throughout the rest of the globe in early November. Madonna got booed at her "MDNA" concert in New Orleans after getting political - expressing her support for U.S. President Barack Obama. The singer took it in stride, however, telling the crowd to "kiss it" as she flashed her behind. She then encouraged everyone to vote, no matter who they were supporting. Taylor Swift has been tapped to co-host the Grammy nomination special. The singer will join LL Cool J for the song and dance televised show in which the nominees for February's Grammys will be announced. The event will air live from Nashville on December 05. Finally, the internet is buzzing with rumors that Mila Kunis is pregnant with Ashton Kutcher's child. The actress was photographed over the weekend with what, some say, shows a small baby bump. Her rep has denied the rumors.
