The Jackson Five are reportedly set to reunite for the first time in 20 years. The five brothers -including Michael, have agreed in principle to a new album, and world tour as well as a TV talent show. Jermaine, now 49, said: "This will be the first time since the Victory album in 1984 where all the Jacksons have a reunion and release an album together as the Jacksons once again."

Britney Spears is going into the beauty business. She'll launch a new fragrance, Curious, this fall, which is a blend of white flowers and vanilla-infused musk. (The fragrance is part of a licensing agreement with Elizabeth Arden.) A scented whipped body cream, shower gel and solid "shimmer stick" will debut in department stores in September.

While Simon & Garfunkel have indicated that their upcoming tour will likely be their last and there are no plans for a new studio album, they have released a new single. It's called "Citizen of the Planet" and it was written by Paul Simon in 1983, but never released.

Fox rolls the dice with a new reality show premiering tonight called The Casino. Odds are you can figure out the premise of the series from the title -- viewers get an inside look at the inner workings of a casino, in this case the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. Specifically, the program follows a pair of dot-com millionaires after they buy the casino in the hopes of resurrecting its glory days. The series comes from MARK BURNETT, who brought us Survivor and The Apprentice.

Fear Factor -- coming soon to a theater near you? Today's New York Post says Paramount Studios is working on turning NBC's gross-out reality show into a movie. If Fear Factor does get the big screen treatment, finding candy at the concession stand shouldn't be a problem. The New York Post also reports a Chicago company called Brand New Products is making Fear Factor candy. Some of the items in the works include candy tongues you can dip in some sort of goo, and a bag filled with dried silkworms and granola.
