Fans of FOX’s ‘Star’ were absolutely devastated in early May 2019 when it was announced the beloved series was cancelled after its third season.

Spurring a #SaveStar petition and campaign by its devoted viewers, the movement was an attempt to get other networks – including streaming services like Hulu and Netflix – to pick up the show to bring its story to the close it deserved.  Just a month ago its director, Lee Daniels, confirmed he was hard at work to expedite the campaign’s process with hopes of finding ‘Star’ a new home (click here to read more).

Fast forward to today, Daniels confirmed his valiant efforts were futile.  But, while the show has not been promised a new season, fans can rejoice at news it will come back…in the form of a 2 hour movie!  Details inside:

In a video that went viral earlier this week, the 33-year-old threatened to have gay men literally shot who figuratively shoot their shots at him – flattery the Rap star says is “disrespectful.”  As the video continues to make its rounds, social media users weigh in on the commentary which conveniently surfaced just as Pride month came to a close.

Hear the words from his mouth that caused the uproar:
