Even if you had zero doubts that Lady Gaga would own "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl, you'll be incredibly impressed by her rendition. The superstar donned a glittery red two-piece suit (complete with red eye shadow and blue nails) to sing the national anthem, but she would have shone bright even in a burlap sack. While no one can touch Whitney Houston's famous version, Gaga sure came close. Remember, this is just the start of a very packed month for the Oscar nominee! »

Happy 40th Birthday, ‘Laverne & Shirley’!

27 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

40 years ago today, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams schlemiel-schlamazeled their way into TV history when “Laverne & Shirley” premiered on ABC. Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, two roommates who worked as bottle-cappers in Milwaukee, had made their debut on “Happy Days” the November before their own spin-off started airing on January 27, 1976. The zany antics of “Laverne & Shirley” quickly shot to No. 1 in the ratings, even surpassing the viewership of “Happy Days.” Williams departed the show after she became pregnant with her first child. As to why she left instead of scheduling around the birth of her baby, Williams has said, “When it came time for me to sign my contract for that season, they had me working on my due date to have my baby. And I said, ‘You know, I can't sign this.’ And it went back and forth and back and forth and it just never got worked out. »

LL Cool J Goes From Mc to Emcee as a Proven TV Host

21 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For three of the four big kudocasts, every year prompts a fresh round of speculation as to who will host the next installment, followed by intense scrutiny of the host’s various failings. For the past few Grammys, however, the hosting dilemma has been resolved: LL Cool J, who has been tapped for the Feb. 15 kudofest.

How did LL manage to succeed where so many other comedians, actors, and media personalities have failed? Per the rapper, being aware of his limited role in proceedings has proven to be the key.

“I’m not delusional,” he says. “I don’t think I’m Billy Crystal. I don’t think I’m Ellen (DeGeneres) or Whoopi (Goldberg). So I approach it with a place of humility, where I know the show isn’t about me, it’s about the artists and them having a great moment, and I’m there as a fan enjoying the ride. »
