In the hit song Get It Started, Pitbull says, “Only ball I drop, New Year’s, Times Square.”

Well, he wasn’t kidding.

In an exclusive interview with the Miami Herald, Miami native Armando Christian Perez, aka Mr. 305, revealed that his New Year’s Eve concert at the AmericanAirlines Arena will be broadcast live on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”

“This is just about creating tradition,” Perez said. “Thank you to Miami for the support.”

The King of Calle Ocho joins a long list of performers on the New Year’s Eve special, including Miley Cyrus, Billy Joel and Macklemore.

Postponed

Universal Pictures has delayed the release of Fast & Furious 7 for almost a year after the death of star Paul Walker.

The studio announced Monday that the Fast & Furious sequel will be released in April 2015, instead of July. Shooting on the film was about halfway finished when the 40-year-old Walker died in a car crash outside of Los Angeles.

Walker will still appear in the film, though Universal has not said exactly how it will handle his unfinished performance.

Co-star Vin Diesel first posted the news on Facebook, telling his fans that, “He’d want you to know first.”

The franchise has been one of Universal’s most lucrative, grossing almost $2.4 billion worldwide since 2001.

Chilling at last

After a tough year, Lea Michele is trying to take it easy.

According to People.com, the Glee actress reclines near a roaring fire in a photo she posted to Twitter over the weekend.

“After an amazing past few weeks it's time to put my feet up recharge, relax and breath[e] in some fresh air,” she says in the caption.

Michele recently released her first solo album, Louder, and performed a song from it, Cannonball on the The X Factor finale. The actress’ boyfriend Cory Monteith died last summer.
