Can you picture it: Ne-Yo jammin' onstage with Marilyn Manson?

Well, it just may become a reality. The R&B crooner says he and the wackadoo rock star are totally serious about collaborating.

"It's going to be interesting," Ne-Yo said the other night at the L.A. premiere of The Secret Life of Bees. "I have no idea what we're going to do, what it's going to sound like. Just Ne-Yo and Marilyn Manson in the same room—we're going to figure something out."

Ne-Yo said he was approached by Manson's people after he boasted in a media interview that he's so flexible, he could even write a song for the rocker.

Meanwhile, Bees star Dakota Fanning said she's looking forward to Candace Bushnell's upcoming young-adult book series chronicling Carrie Bradshaw's high school years.

"Sex and the City is more for older women, but they're so much fun," says 14-year-old Fanning. "I'm sure they'll be great books."

Fanning would even welcome the idea of appearing in a likely movie adaptation. "That would probably be up to them," she says. "They'd have to choose who I'm most like."

She's certainly getting some on-the-job training. Fanning said she goes to school just like any other teen. She beamed, "I'm a cheerleader."

Also at the premiere were Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Sanaa Latham, Nate Parker, Tristan Wilds and Eva Pigford.
