Posted: 08 Feb 2018 04:21 PM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

Ryan Murphy’s The Politician is headed to Netflix, and he’s bringing icon Barbra Streisand with him.

Stresiand will join Gwyneth Paltrow and Tony winner Ben Platt on the hour-long comedy that will revolve around Platt’s character Payton, a wealthy Santa Barbara resident (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Murphy is launching the show with fellow Glee co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, and The Politician will follow suit by featuring musical numbers for Platt (and Streisand, one would imagine).

Paltrow, who is engaged to Falchuk, won an Emmy for her work on Glee in 2011.

Fergie Claims Quentin Tarantino Bit Her on ‘Planet Terror’ Movie Set

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 04:20 PM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

Fergie alleges she was bit by movie director Quentin Tarantino in a rediscovered behind-the-scenes interview for the 2007 movie Planet Terror.

The interview was included as bonus material included with the Grindhouse DVD release for the big-screen double-feature that included Death Proof as well as Planet Terror.

"As I was filming the scene where the zombies attack me, Quentin really got into it. I think he had a lot of fun with that," Fergie explains in the interview (via Jezebel). "He's doing the whole run with me, so it's great. So I look over and see Quentin, and I have to kind of visualize this zombie-esque character. And we kept having to re-do the scene because he was so into being this creature that he was making all these noises. And he was blaming it on the other guys, but really Quentin was making all the noise."

Fergie goes on to offer more detail regarding the moment in a separate behind-the-scenes clip.

"So I'm doing the scene, right,” the pop stars says. "And he starts biting me." Jezebel adds that in the clip, Tarantino is seen tackling the singer, and that she tells him to “Get off me” while laughing and using profanity.

In another scene, Fergie is seen showing bite marks to the camera, claiming that it was Tarantino who gave them to her, and that before the shoot was over, “I will bite him back,” she promises.

The unearthed footage follows recent claims from actresses Uma Thurman and Rose McGowan that Tarantino physically and sexually assaulted them while working on his movies.

Artists Announced for New Johnny Cash Album

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 02:32 PM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

Like his legacy, Johnny Cash’s words are eternal.

Related: Johnny Cash's Childhood Home Considered for National Register of Historic Places

That’s the sentiment behind Johnny Cash: Forever Words, a new collaborative album featuring an array of artists taking on “unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters” written by the late music legend  and was never previously recorded until now. It’s set for release on April 6.

The album came together after Cash’s children, John Carter and Rosanne Cash discovered a “monstrous amassment" of material written by their father that had never seen the light of day.

John Carter Cash and fellow producer Steve Berkowitz put together a studio band to record music, and inviting a cavalcade of stars to handle the vocals: Chris Cornell, Ruston Kelly & Kacey Musgraves, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Brad Paisley, Kris Kristofferson & Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Elvis Costello, and more.

“Determining the artist for each song was truly a matter of the heart,” John Carter Cash said in a press statement. “I picked the artists who are most connected with my father, who had a personal story that was connected with Dad. It became an exciting endeavor to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that Dad would have wanted.”

See the complete tracklist and watch a trailer for the new album below.

Happy Tears: Groom Sobs During First Look At Bride Before Wedding

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 12:58 PM PST

By Kayla Jardine/Joe Cingrana

When everyone turns and looks at the bride, always look at the groom — because his reaction says it all.

Nicole Simons and her husband-to-be Peter had the chance to see each other right before their wedding ceremony to share a special moment. But when Peter laid eyes on his beautiful bride, the waterworks instantly began.

“We had been planning this day for over a year and we were both so excited, but nervous at the same time,” Nicole says in a blog post on Love What Matters.

The Canadian couple had love in their eyes during the first look, as family peered out a nearby window watching the emotions unfold on a nearby bridge.

“As my bridal party and I stood waiting for our photographer to get my husband-to-be into position, my mom turned around and said, ‘Oh my god, he looks like he is going to pass out,'” she explains. “Our photographer was holding him up on his way to the bridge. At this point, I suddenly became very nervous. Was he having second thoughts?”

As Nicole and her photographer Jess Collins approached Peter from behind to get into position for the photo shoot, they could see Peter’s shoulders shaking, so Nicole looked to her bridesmaids for advice on what to do. She finally poked him in the back and watched as he bent forward and shook as if he was collapsing on himself. “I did not know what was happening, and then I realized he was crying.”

Nicole said “at that moment, it was just him and me, tears and all. It is a moment in time that will last in my memory forever.

“His reaction was everything I could have hoped for and more. I had dreamt of what his reaction would be and this was nowhere near what I imagined. It was so much better.

T-Pain Fires Back at Quincy Jones’ Attack on Michael Jackson Cover

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 12:58 PM PST

By Scott T. Sterling

T-Pain is keeping it real.

Related: Quincy Jones Blasts The Beatles: The Worst Musicians in the World

His was just one of many names included in the recent bombshell Quincy Jones interview that’s still reverberating across pop culture and social media.

Among jaw-dropping claims of knowing who killed JFK and a sexual relationship between Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando, the legendary producer Jones called out T-Pain for his version of Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” recorded with Robin Thicke.

“I was not in favor of doing it, but the rappers wanted to record something as a tribute to me, where they'd do versions of songs that I'd done over my career,” Jones told Vulture about the 2010 album, Q: Soul Bossa Nostra, which included the T-Pain/Robin Thicke track.

“I said to them, ‘Look, you got to make the music better than we did on the originals.’ That didn't happen. T-Pain, man, he didn't pay attention to the details.”

T-Pain has responded to Jones’ comments, and the rapper took the high road.

“For the record I told my managers (at the time) and I told Quincy Jones in his face, ‘I don't want to remake any of your past records because I know I'm gonna f— it up,’ the rapper said on Twitter. ‘I'll never be able to reach the greatest of MJ.’ It took them hours to pump me up to even go in the booth. And I still hated it when I came out of the booth.

“Then the song came out and it was even worse than it sounded in the studio,” T-Pain continued. “This is legit one of the reasons I don't work with the managers I had anymore because if I said I was uncomfortable doing something they didn't care.”

That’s when T-Pain had to get something else off his chest.

“But also to be real. It just seems like Quincy Jones is pissed off at the whole world,” the rapper added. “I have nothing but respect for the guy so I don't know why we didn't hold the song or tell me exactly what he wanted when I kept taking the headphones off beggin’ for direction from the God.”

It’s a fair question. Only time will tell if Quincy Jones chooses to answer it.

Mr. Robot actress Portia Doubleday, famous for her role on the show as character Angela Cross, stars in the new Albert Hammond Jr. music video, “Muted Beatings.”

The bittersweet clip chronicles an idyllic relationship between the Strokes guitarist and Doubleday as they spend time together in a beach house.

The video ends with a surprising twist, putting a tragic new perspective on the proceedings.

"I followed Fraser into the abyss,” Hammond said of working with video director Fraser RIGG on the visual. “He had a real vision he expressed by saying 'Love is the one thing that transcends time and space.' I felt like he was moved by the song and knew how to capture it visually. I understood what he meant but to me the love didn't represent human connection. I knew It would be the most universal way to show it visually but I found myself realizing the cycle of who I was and what I was about to become, with the death of my old self and the birth of this new person, was what transcended time and space. That love for life, that lust for life is forever reshaping itself."

Justin Timberlake Sends Ellen Degeneres a ‘Secret Signal’

Posted: 08 Feb 2018 07:31 AM PST

By Robyn Collins

Did Justin Timberlake send a special message to his bestie, Ellen Degeneres, during his Super Bowl LII performance? Some people say yes.

Related: *NSYNC Members Praise Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl Halftime Show

The two are such good friends that the pop star was recently streamed in as one of the special guests for Degeneres’ 60th birthday show.

During the visit, the talk show host asked JT to give her a signal during his halftime performance to show that he was thinking of her. She gave some suggestions for dance moves that involved shoulder tapping and rubbing his stomach "in a sexual way."

The pop star repeated the suggested move and replied, “Well, you are my other girl, OK.”

Fans began to send clips of moments in the halftime performance that may or may not have been the requested signal to Ellen.

Degeneres shared a post with the clips, as well as a special clip that JT may have made just for her.

She concluded by saying Timberlake “sure does know how to make a girl feel special.”

Smashing Pumpkins Wrap Recording Session for New Album

By Hayden Wright

In 2018, the idea of a Smashing Pumpkins reunion has gone from a far-fetched fan dream to a real, rapidly accelerating project.

Related: Billy Corgan Updates Fans on Smashing Pumpkins Album

The best illustration of that acceleration is Billy Corgan’s Instagram feed. The Pumpkins frontman has kept fans updated with a steady stream of studio posts as he, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin wrap the record. Over the last few days he’s shown mixing boards, drum kits and other studio equipment in various states of use.

“Ok, so today is absolutely, officially the last day of studio work (only two days off since I got here to LaLa), and it will be a fun one as we are recording live strings for a few songs I’ve done the arrangements for,” he wrote yesterday (Feb. 7).

Earlier this month, Corgan wrote that there are “26 songs currently in various states of completion, production, insanity."

The title and release date for the upcoming Pumpkins album remain a mystery — as does the name of the band’s bass player. In late Janauary, original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky announced that she wasn’t invited to join the reunion.

Meghan Trainor & James Corden Film ‘Sexy Slow-Mo’ Video

Last night, Meghan Trainor dropped by James Corden’s Late Late Show set to discuss her current projects — including two new videos.

Related: The Day After Meghan Trainor's Engagement Was Not So Great

Meghan mentioned that the new visuals include “sexy slow motion” — so Corden decided to replicate the effect on live TV.

To achieve slow motion with intact vocals, artists record their lip-syncing at double or triple speed…which is then slowed down to match the regular pace of the song. As a result, the vocals appear “normal” but the movement is slow-mo. Corden staged such a production of Meghan’s song “Me Too” with balloons and confetti, replaying the results immediately. The process was hilarious and, while Trainor’s lip movements didn’t perfectly match all of the lyrics, she sure nailed most of them.

Meghan shared the episode with Shape of Water director Guillermo Del Toro and they bonded over pet rodents.

When Lopez headlined the Calibash festival in January, she played a snippet of the song — which she shared on Instagram.

In December, rumors began swirling that J-Lo and Cardi were up to something. Lopez mentioned Cardi in a livestream with her boyfriend, baseball legend Alex Rodriguez and DJ Khaled.

Vince Gill Shares Story of Being Sexually Assaulted as a Child

Vince Gill opened up about being sexually assaulted as a child while performing in Nashville this week.

“I was in 7th grade, and a young, dumb kid,” he told a crowd at the Ryman Auditorium. “I had a gym teacher that acted inappropriately towards me, and was trying to do things that I didn’t know what the hell was going on.”

The Opry member added that he was scared by what was happening and his fight or flight instinct kicked in, reports The Tennesseean.

I was just fortunate that I got up and I ran,” he said. “I just jumped up, and I ran. I don’t know why. And I don’t think I ever told anybody my whole life, but even what’s been going on has given me a little bit of courage to speak out, too.”

He originally spoke about this incident in an interview back in 2011.

It was at the Ryman performance that Gill said that the incident inspired his song “Forever Changed,” which he wrote years ago, but decided to play for the crowd in light of all the recent sexual assault revelations that have been surfacing in the news.

“You put your hands where they don’t belong/ And now her innocence is dead and gone,” he sang. “She feels dirty, she feels ashamed/ Because of you, she’s forever changed.”

"We’re living in a time right now when finally people are having the courage to kind of speak out about being abused,” Gill said. “And I think that is beyond helpful, and beyond beautiful to see people finally have a voice for being wronged.”

The country singer will resume touring with The Eagles in March.

Now, the singer and actress has moved forward with her claim, filing a police report in Santa Monica, California. Schuman made the announcement on Twitter that developments in the #MeToo movement empowered her to come forward.

“I'm finally doing what I thought I could no longer do,” she wrote. “Im filing a police report #timesup #bebrave #bethechange #metoo thank you @RAINN for empowering me to take this step.”

The local police department confirmed to E! News that it is looking into a report Schuman filed but would not name the subject of their investigation.

In her November blog post, Schuman claimed she and Carter were socializing at his home in 2002 when he forcibly performed oral sex on her and forced her to reciprocate, before raping her. Carter denied the allegations and said, “Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual.”

Drake continues to spread the love throughout Miami, Florida.

The rapper’s most recent charitable move was a donation of $50,000 to a Florida homeless shelter for women and children. In addition to the cash, he brought toys and games for the kids and $150 Target gift cards for women living in the facility, reports Billboard.

The nonprofit organization, Lotus Village, said Drake dropped by on February 6 to offer support to families who moved into their new shelter last week.

The shelter hopes to raise $25 million to be able to provide more services to its residents and become a model for other homeless facilities around the country. The shelter for woman and children currently offers a community clinic, children’s wellness center, yoga and a Zen garden.

The rapper’s latest step in his Miami charity spree follows a visit to a supermarket, at which he paid for everyone’s groceries and a donation of $25,000 to a Miami high school for new uniforms. The latter came after Drake made a surprise stop at the school to shoot his upcoming video for “God’s Plan.”
