Foo Fighters, Jon Bon Jovi Get Punched Just Before Eating (And Björk & Charles Barkley Do Iconoclasts)

This week’s SNL got off to a rocky start when a cross-eyed and painful-to-watch Ritchie Sambora lost his next-to-only line during host Jon Bon Jovi’s monologue (Sambora smiling blankly, mouthing “Oh shit, I lost it.” To his credit, intended or not, his bumbling facial expression was sorta funny.) Didn’t look like JBJ was pleased, mouthing… More »

Andy Samberg Talks “Iran So Far” & Aphex Twin

Yes, we instantly fell in love with Andy Samberg’s latest viral digi short “Iran So Far” while watching it in our hotel rooms after Brandon’s wedding a few weekends ago (congrats, B!). Our love so blinding (deafining?) that we missed what eagle-eared commenter gl0tch immediately identified: “Iran So Far Away” was built upon a sample… More »

Saturday Night Live Sees Spoon Go Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, Presents Kevin Federline’s Parenting Tips

SNL will probably take a few cracks to top last week’s Kanye cameoing fun, though the Seth Rogen/Spoon ep had its moments. Like Seth and Kristin Wiig’s annoying-child cover of Winehouse’s “Rehab.” And every moment of the Douchebag Of The Year Awards (and their commemorative Jared Leto trophy). The rest of the show’s iffy sketche… More »

Kanye Mocks Himself, Freestyles On SNL (And “Iran So Far” Digital Short)

Clearly, this couldn’t wait ’til Monday. Mr. West gamely mocks his much YouTube’d award show outbursts on Saturday Night Live’s Lebron James-hosted season premiere…

“It got champagne in it!”

After the jump, the live performance of “Champion” ending with a clumsy freestyle that’s ultimately brave and endearing despite the flub. He… More »

Inside Andy Samberg & JT’s Box: A Dick And An Emmy

Hope neither Andy nor Justin are packing too much heat; now they have to make room for some real hardware in that little box. The AP reports that “(Blank) In A Box” took home the Creative Arts Emmy (honoring technical and other achievements in TV — file this one under “other”) for best original music… More »

DOs & DON’Ts: Inside The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductions

Yesterday afternoon came word from The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame that some seats at Table Van Halen opened up. So we made some calls and got the hookup (thanks, Bono!) to the Waldorf Astoria for this year’s induction ceremony. Sure, the event has gotten lamer over the years, what with the lack of… More »

Justin Brings His Box To The Garden

The teenyboppers and the JT-loving hipsters packed Madison Square Garden last night to watch Timberlake make a very special addition to his live repertoire. People writes (Thanks Mike):Though Timberlake kicked off a raucous set at 9 p.m. that had audience members including Donald and Melania Trump on their feet, the real fun started at 11:20,… More »
