Some are calling Beyonce's new song insensitive. Hollywood has a record year. And no maybes about it, Broadway is calling Carly Rae Jepsen. Calandra Corder has today's Hollywood Minute. Beyonce is facing a backlash over an audio clip in her new song "X-O." The six-second clip features a former NASA public affairs officer talking about the Challenger tragedy. In a statement to ABC News, Beyonce says the clip was used as a tribute to the Challenger crew, with the hope that they will never be forgotten. Howeverm, some fans and NASA employees are calling it "insensitive." The space shuttle exploded shortly after liftoff in 1986. Hollywood is on track to reach another record year. The movie industry is expected to make $10.9-billion in 2013, squeaking past 2012's record of $10.8-billion. That's partly due to inflation and higher-priced 3-D and I-Max ticket sales, as well as having blockbuster movies like Iron Man 3, Man of Steel and Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Broadway is calling for singer Carly Rae Jepsen. The "Call Me Maybe" singer will play the title role in "Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella" starting February 4. Actress Fran Drescher will play her wicked stepmother.
