On, off and way-off Broadway:
LaTOYA JACKSON is getting ready to do Broadway.
The NY Daily News reports LaToya will star in "Newsical the Musical" for a week, from Sep 03-08, taking over from former "227" star JACKÉE HARRY. She'll have to fit it in between taping her Oprah Winfrey Network show "Life With La Toya," but says "I've wanted to do [theater], but on Broadway the shows play for such a long, extended time," so she'll decide if she wants to do more shows later.

So, what does BEYONCE want to eat after a sold-out festival gig in the UK? Caviar? Sushi? Beef Wellington? Nah. Fried Chicken! London's Daily Mail says that right after Beyonce got off stage at the V Festival Saturday night in Hylands Park, which is about an hour outside of London, she had her people call Nando's in Chelmsford and place a big order for fried chicken. Beyonce wanted 58 wing platters, 48 whole chickens, 12 veggie burgers, 24 coleslaws and 24 rice dishes. The tab came to about $22-hundred dollars. And no, the grub wasn't just for Beyonce. She shared it with her entourage and crew. (Marino)
