Transcript for ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ author's new book being adapted into a movie
"Pop news" and Lara. Ah, thank you, George. Nice to hear. We have great news. Another "Gma" book club pick, headed to the big screen. First it was our June book "The vanishing half" and now our July book "Sex and vanity" written by the same author as "Crazy rich Asians" will become a movie after a fierce bidding war with other studios. Author Kevin Kwan is on a roll and debuted it a couple weeks ago and became a "New York Times" best-seller the same day. The book follows the story of a young woman who finds herself torn between two men and if it's like -- anything like "Crazy rich Asians," it should be a monster hit. That movie earned $240 million worldwide. We will be sitting down with author Kevin Kwan to talk sex, vanity, so much more coming up on Tuesday. Katy Perry giving us something to smile about dropping the first sing from her upcoming album. Both of which are called "Smile." Take a listen. Yeah, I'm praying for it's been a while but now I got back the smile All right, I like it. Nice fun beat there. It's interesting, Katy explained it was written in 2017 when she was going through a very dark time in her life and felt like she had lost her smile. She says the new album which features a very whimsical cover is all about that journey for her back to the light and you know she does have a lot to smile about. In just a few weeks she's giving birth to a baby girl with her fiance Orlando bloom and her new album drops on August 14th. Can you listen to the full song or preorder "Smile." Finally, the perfect feel-good story for this Friday.
