Katy Perry is in talks with Paramount to create a 3D movie documenting the singer's live show. The studio, along with Imagine Entertainment, are still in early stages of developing the project, which is largely dependent on the logistics of filming, staging and releasing the movie. A source close to the deal says Paramount hopes to follow the template of last year's Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which now holds the box office record for the most successful concert film in the United States with a gross of $73 million.

Disney has also had great success with 3D concert movies in the recent past, with Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour and Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience both pulling in grosses that eclipsed studio expectations. Fox's Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, however, was a flop when it was released last year.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
