    The “Material Girl” posted adorable video of newly adopted twin daughters, Estere and Stelle playing with the dolls.

    In the short video posted on Instagram, the girls sang the Finger Family song in unison while sitting on their beds. As they sing, the girls waved their new toys in front of the camera.

    “What happens when you get your first Barbie Doll!” Madonna wrote. “Pikachu is left in the dust!”

    In February, Madonna confirmed the rumor that she had adopted the girls also in an Instagram post.

    “I can officially confirm I have completed the process of adopting twin sisters from Malawi and am overjoyed that they are now part of our family,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself walking with her girls.

    Cher will no longer appear as planned in “Flint,” a Lifetime original movie about contaminated river water that became a main water source in the Michigan city in 2014.

    The announcement came weeks after news was released that the 70-year-old singer would star in and produce the film.

    Cher, who has helped donate more than 100,000 bottles of clean drinking water to the residents of Flint, cited “a serious family issue” as the reason for dropping out.

    “This has been a project so near and dear to my heart, and I was truly looking forward to helping tell this story,” she said in a statement. “Unfortunately, I will be unable to leave Los Angeles during the scheduled filming as I am dealing with a serious family issue that prevents me from going on location for the April filming. I’m so glad that [producers] Craig [Zadan] and Neil [Meron] plan to move ahead, and I know that this Lifetime movie will be done beautifully.”

    According to Deadline, producers have been in the process of casting other roles for “Flint,” but the film is still on track to begin production in Toronto next month.

    The film is based on Time magazine’s February 2016 cover story by Josh Sanburn titled, “The Toxic Tap.”

    Cher’s role was a Flint resident whose family was impacted by the crisis.

    “Flint” is described as “a hard-hitting, fact-based drama that will explore the events that led to the toxic crime and shed light on politics of the poor management and the human element of residents who suffered and were ignored,” according to Variety magazine.

    Katie Couric will also serve as an executive producer for the Sony TV-produced film.

    This week, comedian Amy Schumer announced she will no longer star in another Sony-produced film as previously planned.

    According to a new report from Variety magazine, actress and comedian Amy Schumer will not appear in the live-action “Barbie” film, as previously planned.

    News that Schumer would star in the production was announced in December

    This week, Schumer announced that she would no longer be able to participate in the production due to scheduling issues. 

    “Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to ‘Barbie’ due to scheduling conflicts,” the actress said in a statement to Variety. “The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing ‘Barbie’ on the big screen.”

    “We respect and support Amy’s decision,” a spokesperson for Sony said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing Barbie to the world and sharing updates on casting and filmmakers soon.”

    Sony will more than likely have to stick with the previously planned June 29, 2018 release date since Mattel has already produced merchandise and plans with that date in mind. 

    According to IMDb, the film is about a doll who sets off on an adventure in the real world after being expelled from ‘Barbieland’ for not being perfect enough.

    Sony is still seeking a director for the comedy.
