17 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Oprah Winfrey Network has filed a lawsuit in Florida alleging that a man named Justin Jackson pretended to be Oprah's nephew and even impersonated network employees to get lavish gifts and benefits. Additionally, per the specifics of the suit obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the complaint alleges that Jackson has a history of impersonation and once claimed to be President Barack Obama's aide as well as Madonna's manager. Reggie Love, a former personal aide to Obama, and Scott Garner, Own's Senior Vice President of Scheduling and Acquisitions, were both listed as co-plaintiffs. An Own spokesperson released the following statement to E! News: "A lawsuit was filed today against Justin »

American Idol: What Should the Top 6 Sing for 'Arena Anthems' Week?

17 April 2015 4:54 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Just because American Idol‘s Top 6 will cover “Arena Anthems” next Wednesday (8/7c on Fox) doesn’t mean we want a Jock Jams-type situation. (Not that there’s anything wrong with “Pump Up the Jam,” mind you.)

Thankfully, the parameters for the theme are a little broader than that — essentially “songs that can entertain a massive crowd and are performed by mega superstars.”

Inside Amy Schumer, Jane the Virgin, The Americans and Black Mirror Among 2015 Peabody Awards Winners

16 April 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Ladies with an attitude, fellas who weren’t in the mood (for hanky panky with a swine). That little tweak on a classic Madonna lyric might be one way to describe the 74th Peabody Awards’ entertainment winners.

In announcing its latest honorees for excellence in electronic media, the organization noted a trend of “strong, multi-dimensional women” picking up prizes in 2015 and “affirming the continuing expansion of significant roles for women on television.” Among them: Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, The CW’s Jane the Virgin, and Sundance TV/The BBC’s The Honorable Woman.

It's Not So Bad: Madonna's cover of 'American Pie'

14 April 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Not So Bad is a new feature on HitFix where a brave, stupid writer defends an unpopular pop culture subject. Every Madonna fan -- or every Madonna fan worth knowing -- has a bone or two to pick with the woman herself, and that's the way it should be. One of Madonna's primary functions as a pop culture phenomenon is agitator, and I was sufficiently agitated with her Britney lip-lock (because Britney is no Madonna heir, as we've now long understood), her "Hard Candy" album (because Timbaland and Justin Timberlake were her most uninspired choices as collaborators), and the leaden self-seriousness of her Mdna tour (because leaden self-seriousness is not very danceable). Otherwise I'm on board with her impish immortality and obvious potential as a standup comic. I'll always love Madonna. She's like if Marlene Dietrich were an American Gladiator. Thanks to her explosive kiss with Drake at Coachella this weekend, »

Charlize Theron Raves About Boyfriend Sean Penn: "I'm a Very Lucky Girl ... He's Hot"

14 April 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are quickly becoming one of Hollywood's hottest couples, and now, we're finally learning more about how their relationship began. "We’ve been friends for 20 years," Theron tells Esquire in the cover story for the May issue. "He was married, I was in a long-term relationship, our spouses — not regularly, but we were in each other’s lives." "I think our friendship stemmed from mutual respect — more on my end, because I really didn’t have a body of work 20 years ago, but my love and passion for making films — that was our common ground," she continues. The "Mad Max: Fury Road" star also reveals that she didn't think her romance with the 54-year-old actor would get so serious. "I think that for both of us there was never a moment where we thought that this—what we have today—would ever even be a possibility. »

Drake Gets Unexpected Mouthful of Madonna DNA At Coachella Video

13 April 2015 9:26 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Canadian singer Drake got a mouthful of Madonna DNA at Coachella unexpectedly. Bodies don’t lie Madge, whatever lipstick you were “wearing” he isn’t buying. Neither are we. The Toronto rapper doubles over in his chair and wipes his mouth rather feverishly after his encounter with 56 year old Madge, who is on a PR blitz to up her cool quotient.After years of producing elaborate stage shows where “no one makes any money,” Madonna told Jimmy Fallon on last Thursday night’s episode of The Tonight Show that it would be nice if she didn’t have to deal with all the expensive […] »

Outrage Watch: Mumford & Sons unleash on Tidal

13 April 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the April 13, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Mumford & Sons want nothing to do with Tidal. In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the Grammy-winning rock band greeted the mention of Jay Z's much-ballyhooed new artist-owned streaming service -- which has the backing of such music superstars as Madonna, Beyonce, Jack White and Rihanna -- with "a series of loud fart sounds" before being slammed further by frontman Marcus Mumford, who told the website: “We wouldn’t have joined it anyway, even if they had asked. We don’t want to be tribal. ...A band of our size shouldn’t be complaining. And when they say it’s artist-owned, it’s owned by those rich, wealthy artists.” Or as guitarist Winston Marshall called them: "New school fucking plutocrats.” Wait, is that a compliment? »

Madonna Makes Out With Drake!

13 April 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Move aside, Britney SpearsMadonna has found a new on-stage make-out partner: Drake.

The 56-year-old star made a surprise cameo during Drake's Coachella set on Sunday, as the rapper performed his song, "Madonna."

Madge marched onto the stage wearing thigh high boots, fishnets, and a tank which read "Big as Madonna" (a line from Drake's song). Then, as the 28-year-old rapper was seated facing the audience, Madonna leaned down and began to make out with Drake.

Madonna Kisses Drake at Coachella, But His Reaction Steals the Spotlight on Social Media (Video)

13 April 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Drake was left wondering “what the f–k just happened” at Coachella on Sunday after Madonna finished a medley of songs during his set by surprising him with a kiss on the lips. The Queen of Pop joined the rapper on stage to perform his new song, “Madonna,” and sang a few of her own, including “Human Nature,” “Hung Up” and “Bitch I’m Madonna.” The kiss, however, isn’t what has people talking on social media. Drake‘s reaction does. See video: Madonna Makes Her Stand-Up Comedy Debut on ‘The Tonight Show’ After he attempted to put his hand »

'Ex Machina's' Oscar Isaac didn't know he was actually in 'Star Wars' until you did

10 April 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oscar Isaac has delivered another superb performance in Alex Garland's "Ex Machina."  It follows a National Board of Review-winning turn in "A Most Violent Year" which, frankly, should have earned him an Academy Award nomination this past January. Of course, you could also say he should have received more recognition for his work in "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "Drive," but Isaac's time will come.  Potentially with whatever projects he chooses after shooting "X-Men: Apocalypse" this summer.  But, before we get to Isaac's blueprint or building his character in "Machina" let's get to the subject you probably really want him to hear about, "Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens." Frankly, the mantra for anyone working on any J.J. Abrams directed movie is that you keep your lips sealed and don't reveal anything to the press.  And that means almost everything is under wraps unless you're playing Han Solo, Princess »

Is Grey's Doc a Masochist? Is Last Week Drubbing Daily Show? Best Outlander Sex? Did Shamy Bang? And More Qs!

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Outlander, Shameless, Mad Men and Grey’s Anatomy!

1 | Did Outlander‘s angry make-up sex top the steamy wedding night? Or could you tell it was filmed before the infamous nuptials? And for book readers: Did the way the Starz series handled the spanking scene change your opinion of the subject matter at all?

Madonna made her adorable standup debut on 'The Tonight Show'

10 April 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Madonna has always been a big fan of comics, and she's palled around in recent years with Ricky Gervais and Jerry Seinfeld. But the pop icon decided to give standup a shot for the first time on "The Tonight Show" yesterday, and results were... fascinating! Flawless set? I mean, no. But honestly, this is the kind of material you get at a real open mic, and to hear Madonna chirp about her dating life like an up-and-coming talent is kind of awesome. She is having a blast not knowing what the hell she's doing. And her pleading "Wait, I have more jokes!" was hilarious.  You have to give it up to Madonna. She is an incredible stage performer who is obviously bored by societal expectations of 56-year-old women and never lets you forget she's in charge of herself. And a Picasso or two.  »

Best of Late Night TV: Madonna Performs 'Holiday' With The Roots, Taraji P. Henson Serves Ad Libs (Video)

9 April 2015 11:52 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Everything that happened last night on "The Tonight Show" was completely amazing, but let's start things off with Madonna, who sat down with The Roots and Jimmy Fallon to sing "Holiday" with classroom instruments. Biggest takeaway: The Queen of Pop definitely needs to spend more time hitting a cowbell.

Even more amazingly, Madonna made her stand up debut on "The Tonight Show," and to be honest she was pretty funny. Madge basically mused on dating younger guys -- specifically how she accidentally asked her son, Rocco, if she could scope out his friends. That's not awkward or anything.

Season 5 of "Game of Thrones" premieres this weekend (Yesssssss), and "The Tonight Show »

Is this Madonna's audition for Dancing With the Stars?! The Queen of Pop released her new music video for her song "Ghosttown" earlier today. The apocalyptic vid begins with Madonna waking up in a bunker after the world was destroyed by bombs. She puts on a rosary before leaving the bunker to survey the damage and destruction outside. The 56-year-old singer walks through fire and rubble before meeting up with another survivor played by Empire star Terrence Howard. That's when everything changes. The duo break out into a choreographed dance à la Dancing With the Stars. They dip, twirl and waltz across a checkered dance floor just like contestants on the ballroom dancing reality »

Madonna Shares Censored Naked Sex Book Fish Photo, Isn't Happy With Instagram—See the New Nsfw Pic!

3 April 2015 3:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Madonna has something to get off her chest: She just wants to be naked on Instagram. Small problem: Instagram doesn't allow nude pics. On Wednesday, the 56-year-old Queen of Pop, seen by many as a trailblazer of sexual expression and who has no problem showing some skin, shared a vintage topless pic of herself (getting touched up, so to speak). Then poof! It disappeared. Outraged, a day later, she shared on Instagram another Nsfw pic—a censored version of a famous photo depicting her leaning back, naked, against a giant fish statue and fountain, first seen in her racy 1992 coffee table book Sex. "Why is it ok to show ass but not breasts?" she wrote. "Drowning in the hypocrisy of »

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Delivers Perfect Taylor Swift 'Shake It Off' Lip Sync

Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? It's another viral moment. After dominating Saturday Night Live with his Bambi impersonation, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson delivered again on the inaugural episode of Spike's Lip Sync Battle on Thursday. Instead of picking a macho metal number for his fight against Jimmy Fallon, the Furious 7 star went with something a little sweeter. To open the show Johnson mimed along to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off." The former wrestler gave the "sick beat" his all, even taking on the song's rap breakdown.
