It’s the Rock in the building. This weekend he and Liam Hemsworth, better known as Miley Cyrus’s on-again, off-again fiancee (though we have a feeling it’s OFF this week) team up for the heist film “Empire State.” On the music side of things, Fantasia and Toni Braxton are on the road this weekend so be sure to catch the latest singer/reality show stars before their next wardrobe malfunction.
