If you haven't been watching the "ArScheerio Paul" web series masterminded by "The League" star Paul Scheer, you're missing out on some of the funniest stuff online. Scheer recreates old episode of "The Arsenio Hall Show" from the early 90s, complete with wacky clothing and celebrity friends filling in as the show's guests.
If you've ever wanted to see Schmidt from "New Girl" (Max Greenfield) doing his best Vanilla Ice, your prayers have been answered. What hasn't happened is a meeting between ArScheerio and Arsenio Hall, himself. That is until the host welcomes his internet counterpart to the new version of "The Arsenio Hall Show" for a chat.
Together, Arsenio and ArScheerio reminisce about the 90s and some of the show's best interviews, including Tupac Shakur and Ike Turner. They also play a little big of "Dis or Dat," which proves just how 90s ArScheerio is. Paul also took over »

Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Kardashian brood, doesn't remember a life before fame. What else in pop culture does she not remember?
Jenner pointed out that she had no clear memory of the time before her family became synonymous with reality television when talking to Us Weekly on Wednesday (Nov. 13). "It's kind of like I grew up into it. It's kind of like I don't know any different," Jenner said.
That makes sense. But what else does the young Miss Jenner not remember? Here are 16 pop-culture things that pre-date 16-year-old Kylie.
Warning: You are going to feel old reading this.
The movie that may best describe the lifestyle Kylie was born and raised in was released in 1995, two years before the girl's birth.

The Tupac film was original set to start filming back in 2011 after a lengthy legal battle between Morgan Creek and the rapper's mother Afeni Shakur. Morgan Creek had sued Shakur, claiming she had continued to negotiate for creative control of the film after signing over rights to her son's music and story. Shakur countersued, claiming she had no deal in place with Morgan Creek. »

The songstress made one heck of a fashion statement at the EMAs, and we know exactly why she selected this ensemble for the big show!
The 20-year-old can’t stop — and won’t stop! Miley Cyrus arrived at MTV’s European Music Awards in Amsterdam on Nov. 10, where the star wore a NY Vintage dress that depicted both Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls — but why did the star don a dress that featured the late rappers?
Miley Cyrus’ Biggie/Tupac Dress At The EMAs:
“She really started listening to them during the time she was hanging out and recording with Snoop, and she thought it would give her some cred,” a source exclusively tells HollywoodLife. “She has been in the rap world and trying to rap herself, and they are the best, and that is who she wants to be recognized with.”

Well, it looks as if the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards will be all about Miley Cyrus.
First, the provocative singer showed up at Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome on Sunday (Nov. 10) wearing a bizarre dress in tribute to Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. Then, she grabbed a little person's breast as she kicked off the evening with a performance of "We Can't Stop." And for her third act? She lit up on stage.
While accepting the Best Video award for her Terry Richardson-directed clip for "Wrecking Ball," Cyrus set her award down, retrieved what appeared to be a joint from her purse, and began smoking onstage. Is it marijuana, which is legal in Amsterdam? We don't know for sure, but, come on, what do you think?
Us Weekly reports that Cyrus was smoking backstage throughout the event, with a show source telling the magazine, "No one was expecting it to happen. »
Miley Cyrus just loves showing off.The singer continued her interesting style transformation on Sunday at the 2013 MTV European Music Awards -- where she sported not one, but two very revealing outfits.First, the "Wrecking Ball" singer hit the red carpet in a backless, halter top dress with a laced-up front with the faces of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. on it. The message "Please Stop Violence" was also printed on the risque mini.Cyrus later hit the stage during the award show to perform -- where she wore a leotard with high-cut sides that bordered on vulgar. The view from the front was definitely not a flattering look -- you'll see why in the gallery above.Of course, the moment everyone will be talking about tomorrow is the one above. After collecting her Best Video award for "Wrecking Ball," Miley decided to light up a joint and smoke it on stage. »

Miley Cyrus made a statement with her red carpet look at the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) on Sunday, Nov. 10 in Amsterdam. The songstress donned a short deep-plunging halter dress, with the message "Please Stop Violence" and the faces, divided by a lace bodice, of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. "Please Stop," in capital letters, was sprawled on the back, while "Violence," also in caps, was across the hem in the front. The sides of the dress also featured black laces and the backless number was held in place by several straps. The 20-year-old sported black and white checkered over-the-knee peep-toe Tom Ford boots and pale pink lipstick. Just before arriving at the Ziggo »
It may not involve the twerking teddy bears of the VMAs, but it seems Miley Cyrus' performance at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards, held Sunday (Nov. 10), will be just as wild.
In this preview photo of her performance, which has already aired live in Amsterdam, where the event is being held, the "We Can't Stop Singer" is seen grabbing the breast of a little person in a black latex suit, while singing into a microphone made to look like a rocket shape. So, totally normal.
Cyrus also made waves on the red carpet, wearing a bizarre shirt dress featuring the likenesses of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, with a pair of black-and-white-checkered thigh-high boots. It's truly a sight to be seen.
Be sure to tune in and see how Miley's performance shakes out when the Emas air Sunday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. Et/Pt on MTV. »
Miley Cyrus stepped out on the red carpet of the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards in one of her most interesting looks yet. It's not doily-meets-court-jester, but it's definitely its own brand of crazy.
Cyrus appears to be wearing a barely-there shirt dress that features the likenesses of Tupac and Biggie. The back is nonexistent and she tops it all off with some black-and-white checkered thigh-high boots. As one does.
We can't wait to see what Miley does for her EMAs performance tonight. The awards air Sunday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. Et/Pt on MTV.

Banksy better watch out, because Justin Bieber's joined the graffiti game! On Thursday, Oct. 31, the 19-year-old pop star Instagrammed pictures of his art tagged on buildings. The Biebs himself could be seen practicing his "street art" (aka his "new hobby") wearing sneakers, saggy pants, a hoodie and a baseball cap. In one picture, Justin is shown tagging "Rip Pac" on a concrete wall. It is unclear whether he was memorializing Tupac Shakur, the pet hamster he named in the late rapper's honor, or both. The "Believe" singer's partner in crime for the evening was R&B singer Khalil. The former Def Jam artist Instagrammed a picture of "Me & Bizzle »
Getting a Broadway show up and running is a journey often fraught with drama, hurt feelings and failure. Happy endings are rare and best appreciated if we know the struggle, revisions, hard work and tough casting and re-casting decisions it took to achieve success.
Much of that is missing from "Broadway Idiot," a tuneful but extremely superficial slice of cinematic triumphalism celebrating the conversion of Green Day's 2004 concept album, "American Idiot," into a stage musical that ran for 422 performances at Broadway's St. James Theatre. Producers had to update a Bush-era screed about suburban angst and post-9/11 American ennui into something that felt fresh in 2009-10.
Though we're treated to some wonderful moments and we develop a pretty thorough understanding of the back story on the songs and the era that spawned this angry, defiant, anarchic song cycle, there's never a discouraging word uttered in "Broadway Idiot's" 80 minutes.

Afeni Shakur is demanding more than $1.1 million in royalties from the exploitation of her son's work. As the co-administrator of Tupac Shakur's estate, she filed a lawsuit on Wednesday in L.A. Superior Court against Entertainment One, reported to have purchased the catalog of Death Row Records earlier this year. The lawsuit, which also demands the defendant surrender master recordings containing unreleased Tupac material, is a follow-up from litigation that was filed earlier this year in federal court. The legal dispute represents the latest in the rocky history of Death Row Records. Tupac, one of the

I thought this was fantastic. It dealt with a really complicated subject incredibly well, with a great deal of humour, as well as having very strong dialogue and characters. It was the first time I had seen buggery on stage, which was shocking – and I don't often have »
It’s remarkable that in the nearly 20 years since Tupac Shakur’s death the music icon hasn’t been the focus of a biopic. After all, he still has a passionate following and many were insanely excited by his hologram’s first appearance last year at Coachella. In fact, his fanbase is so large that he’s sold over 75 million albums in the years since his death, which came at the age of 25 in 1996. Taking that enduring popularity into consideration, Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films is teaming with Morgan Creek Productions to produce Tupac.
The film is being scripted by Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, with a draft expected to be completed sometime in October. A director and a lead have yet to be named.
Casting Tupac is going to be a tough one, as is true with casting any iconic figure. The first question that will have to be handled »
