frontwoman, writer/producer and chief heartthrob Beyonce Knowles has signed on to be L’Oreal’s newest spokeswoman. Currently headlining MTV’s "Total Request Live" tour with her group, the R&B diva told Newsweek that she is worried that fans will be turned off by DC, due to overexposure. We think she was just trying to distance herself and the rest of the trio from last week’s HITS cover.

UNDER THE RED BALL CAP: A BERET
After directing countless music videos, Fred Durst is ready to try his hand at helming a feature for the big screen. The Limp Bizkit singer has signed on the direct "Life Without Joe," a thriller about a group of high school football jocks running for their lives after meeting some unusual characters in a small town. Production is scheduled to begin in September, after Limp Bizkit’s European tour ends. Sources close to Durst say he doesn’t think movie directing will be any different from video-directing, except you can’t keep cutting back to the same shot of a chick in a bikini blowing up a Trans Am. Unless you shoot it from a bunch of different angles, like my man John Woo.

WHIPPING POST MORTEM
The Allman Brothers Band has filed suit against UMG, PolyGram and Delaware Corporation to regain control of their master tapes, Allstar reports. The complaint alleges that ex-manager Phil Walden surrendered the Southern jam band’s tapes—which include material stretching from 1969 to a full decade later—to PolyGram as part of 1979 bankruptcy settlements for his Capricorn Records, without plaintiffs’ consent. Greg Allman and his fellow litigants want a temporary restraining order as well as both preliminary and permanent injunctions against use by UMG of recordings they claim to own, as well as the return of the tapes.

3 Doors Down
lead singer Brad Arnold married girlfriend Terika Roberts in Escatawpa, Mississippi this weekend. About 300 guests attended the ceremony, which included a slide show highlighting the five years since Arnold and Roberts met. The wedding proceeded quietly, thanks to the security guards hired to stop uninvited guests who claimed they were "on the management list."
