Interview: Guitarist Andy Summers Talks Life In A Legendary Band In Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

22 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The 1983 breakup of The Police was a mystery and a disappointment to their fans who looked to the band's fusion of multicultural sounds and musical proficiency on songs like "Roxanne," "Message in a Bottle," and the great paranoia anthem, "Every Breath You Take," as an oasis in the pastel, plastic 1980s sonic landscape.  Guitarist Andy Summers documents the interrupted rise of the band in Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police. He chatted with me about what exactly happened, what it took to reunite, and how Sting "wasn't a team player."The Lady Miz Diva: Why did you feel now was the time for this documentary? Andy Summers: Well, you know, actually, I felt the time was many years ago.  It's been around for quite...

Friday’s best TV

The Voice judges on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man sofa, Dexys’ Duke of York’s residence in Nowhere Is Home and Js Bach’s home help explored in Written By Mrs Bach. Plus: Bear Grylls continues his Mission Survive, a Big Easy slaying in NCIS: New Orleans and the origin of Frank Drebin in Police Squad!

It is recognised that Johann Sebastian Bach composed his greatest works after meeting his second wife, singer Anna Magdalena Wilcke. In this film, musicologist Martin Jarvis, composer Sally Beamish and forensic scientist Heidi Harralson explore the theory that Mrs Bach’s influence may have extended beyond service as a muse and stenographer. This has been a crusade for Jarvis for many years, and has been just as persistently rubbished by many. Still, he remains endearingly undaunted. Also featuring silly reconstructions. Andrew Mueller

Police Story: Can't Stand Losing You Shares Andy Summers' View of the Band

17 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

In the creatively combative trio the Police, guitarist Andy Summers is the quiet one, less comfortable with the spotlight than singer/bassist Sting, and more reserved than drummer Stewart Copeland. Director Andy Grieve uses Summers's memoir One Train Later as the basis for Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police, a documentary that echoes the musician's measured tone. Summers was a wunderkind and late bloomer, immersed in London's Swinging Sixties music scene by his early twenties, but not achieving his own success until nearly forty. (In footage from the Eighties, his decade-younger bandmates try to convince one interviewer that the Andy Summers who played with the Animals and Soft Machine was actually his father.)

Kendall Jenner Doesn’t Need Kim Kardashian at Her Fashion Shows

12 March 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Kendall Jenner walking in the Chanel fashion show at Paris Fashion Week may have been her best gig yet. But was it shady that sister Kim Kardashian missed the big event even though she was in Paris at the time? If you remember correctly, Kendall didn’t want her there to begin with.

When she walked for Chanel this week, mom Kris Jenner and Anna Wintour were among the stars in the crowd, yet Kim was nowhere to be seen. Her rep tells The Gossip Table that she missed the show for a “business meeting for a prior engagement.”

Before the Shade Police come out to attack, think back to November when Kendall admitted that she didn’t want her sister at her shows. “It was more of a mutual understanding,” she told Good Morning America. “I think if my sister was sitting front row, and my sister is who she is, »

WWE And Tna: 7 Worst Moments Of The Week (March 8)

8 March 2015 12:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This week in wrestling left us with a lot of questions. For example, does Jbl know that The Daily Show airs on Comedy Central and not “The Comedy Channel?” Does Dolph Ziggler realize that referring to himself as good looking isn’t an endearing babyface trait? And how do people continually keep stealing The Undertaker’s urn? You’d think after the second or third time that thing was taken he’d buy a safe to keep it in.

Sometimes, I just want WWE to at least pretend that other wrestling companies that they don’t own exist. On Raw, Hhh questioned Booker T why Sting didn’t show up in WWE sooner. If only he had responded “Because we were in The Main Event Mafia together sucka!” It’s not like Booker T and Sting played different roles in Tna, they were the same guys they were in WCW. »

The Voice UK: Everything you need to know about tonight's battles

7 March 2015 1:35 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

There were only two steals left going into tonight's round of battles on The Voice UK, so it was always going to be a bit dramatic, right? Sure enough, the 12 remaining battle pairings pulled no punches as they took to the ring to persuade their coaches to put them through to the knockouts.

So without further ado, here are all the details of tonight's action - who made it, who didn't, and who grabbed those final two steals from Will and Rita...

Battle #1: Letitia George vs Vikesh Champaneri

Team: Ricky

Song: 'Under Pressure' - Queen

What happened in rehearsals? Letitia was pulling out the fighting talk pretty quickly (even surprising herself!) whereas Vikesh suddenly had a crisis of confidence - and even got a little bit annoyed with Letitia singing his bits ("Shh! It's my turn!") He admitted to Ricky that he didn't feel he could keep up with Letitia, »

WWE Raw: Results & Review (02.03.15)

3 March 2015 9:39 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are into March and it is only a little more than a month until WrestleMania 31 in California. Last week was one of the times when I felt like I’d wasted time watching Raw, so I was hoping the Road to WrestleMania might take a more interesting and entertaining turn tonight, and I’m glad to say that, for the most-part, it did.

With the same old matches now being booked again, and some surprising things happening, this episode of Raw from New Jersey was good. It wasn’t great, but some of the parts of it were, and we’ll get into that in this column.

Match Results:

Dean Ambrose defeated Bad News Barrett The Uso’s & Naomi beat Tyson Kidd, Cesaro & Natalya John Cena squashed Curtis Axel Paige beat Nikki Bella via Dq Daniel Bryan defeated Luke Harper Seth Rollins beat Roman Reigns

Towie's Dan Osborne 'won't face police action over abusive tape'

3 March 2015 7:49 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne will not face police action over a tape in which he allegedly threatens his ex-girlfriend.

According to The Mirror, Essex Police have decided not to take any action over the recording, which was leaked to The Sun over the weekend.

In the tape, Osborne is allegedly heard telling his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin - the mother of his son Teddy - that he will stab her if she sleeps with another man.

However, a spokesperson for Essex Police has now said: "A 23-year-old man from Barking will face no further police action in relation to this matter."

The rep also insisted that there is "no suggestion" that the recording was leaked to the media by an officer.

Osborne - who recently welcomed his daughter Ella with EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa - has been suspended from Towie following the release of the tape.

9 Potential Reasons Why No One Went to See 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Last Weekend

24 February 2015 4:14 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Looks like Fifty Shades of Grey might be a one-pump chump.

Though the movie made a record $80-something million during its first weekend, The Hollywood Reporter reports that its box office saw a “massive” 73 percent decline in the U.S. the second weekend. (Though it’s still made over $400 globally, so really, who cares?)

To be honest, we’re surprised: We assumed fans of the book and the plus ones they dragged with them would see it the first weekend, then word would spread that it wasn’t as bad as expected and everyone else would see it the next weekend. Here are nine possible reasons that proved untrue:

1. Everyone Who Wanted to See It Already Saw It: As evidenced by that massive haul the first weekend. Fifty Shades is the fastest-selling R-rated movie in history, but maybe anyone who had any interest in ever »

‘WWE Fastlane 2015′ Results & Review

24 February 2015 4:09 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Road to WrestleMania continues, and we make a final PPV stop at the first WWE Fastlane PPV. When we leave this show tonight we should have a clearer view of what the big show in March will have in store for us, and hopefully we’ll have seen some interesting and entertaining matches and angles too. On paper it looks like it could be a decent show, but it all depends on the booking decisions and where the path leads after the show is over. So, let’s get on with this, shall we?

The opening match of the evening saw Ziggler, Rowan and Ryback take on Seth Rollins, Kane and Big Show in six man tag team action. The match, to me, felt like a typical Raw main event. It didn’t feel big, the fans were into it no more or less than they would be on »

Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler was in no mood for jokes on Thursday when she was honored at unite4:good's second annual unite4:humanity event.

Instead, the actress remembered her friend and colleague, 30-year-old Parks and Rec producer Harris Wittels, in a touching speech just hours after learning of his death.

"Today, I lost a friend," Poehler said. "I lost a dear young man in my life, who was struggling with addiction and who died. Just a few hours before we came, [Dr. Jane Aronson] and I sat and talked about it. I'm sharing it with you because life and death live so close together and we walk that fine line every day.
