24 March 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It feels like every time we blink, a new star is chopping off her hair. Selena Gomez is rocking her shortest cut yet, the length of Lucy Hale’s bob continues to shrink and even Kylie Jenner is sporting shorter strands. But not everyone has the guts to go for a major chop — which is why skipping the commitment might just be the way to go. The best part? You don’t need a wig — or a hairstylist — to fake anyone out. We enlisted Shay Mitchell’s hairstylist, Color Wow band ambassador Chris Appleton, to teach you how to recreate her very believable faux lob, »

Chuck Berry passed away on March 18 in Missouri, Variety reports. The 90-year-old guitarist was a cornerstone of rock and roll music, with energetic hits from the ’50s such as “Maybellene” and “Roll Over Beethoven.” He is also credited with perfecting onstage swagger, posing with his guitar and rocking out in a way that heavily influenced countless bands, from The Rolling Stones to Bruce Springsteen and beyond. Outside of effectively creating rock music, Berry also had a defining impact on the film industry, soundtracking two of cinema’s most iconic scenes and influencing scores of filmmakers and actors.

19 March 2017 4:50 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

St. Charles County, Mo – One of rock and roll music’s last living pioneers, Chuck Berry, was found dead in his home in St. Charles County, Missouri, on Mar. 18, 2017. He was the “Father of Rock ‘n Roll” for his hit songs in the 1950s, but Berry was also known for his controversies and live concert style. He was 90 years old.

Berry, along with Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and others in the 1950s, established the style of songs that influenced a generation of rock artists, including The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen and virtually any other guitar hero who had to learn Berry’s song “Johnny B. Goode” to get to the next level. His most productive period came in Chicago, when he recorded songs that he wrote for Chess Records on the near south side. John Lennon once said, “If you tried to give rock and roll another name, »

9 March 2017 10:47 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s not your imagination. There are foods that give you such a rush of pleasure from the very first bite that your brain screams for more—making it very hard to stop eating them once you start. That’s because they’ve been engineered with the right combination of refined carbohydrates like white flour and sugar and added fat to deliver a big glycemic load—a rush of blood sugar into your system, which triggers your brain’s reward center and makes you want more.

'Lethal Weapon': THR's 1987 Review

6 March 2017 8:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On March 6, 1987, Warner Bros.' R-rated buddy-cop drama Lethal Weapon, pairing Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, opened in theaters. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

Lethal Weapon has got a full chamber: Mel Gibson is starring, Eric Clapton performing, Los Angeles backdropping. It's loaded up with other hotshot elements as well. A cop thriller, this one's got all the grooves notched for a sure hit. But when the b.o. report comes back from the lab, Warner Bros. is likely to see that this seemingly sure-fire has scored much further from the box-office bull's-eye than it had anticipated. »

Jane Birkin’s Comeback: Why She Chose Oscar-Nominated Short ‘La Femme et le Tgv’ As Her Final Film

16 February 2017 2:03 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

La Femme et le Tgv” director Timo Von Gunten is too young to feel starstruck by his film’s star, legendary model, actress, and singer Jane Birkin. “For me, it was just Jane: A wonderful, beautiful actress, and I handled her very similarly to anyone else,” said the director, who still lives with his parents when he is home in Switzerland.

Von Gunten’s whimsical film is nominated for an Oscar in the Live Action Short category, and features an inspired performance by Birkin as Elise, a woman who waves to the train that passes by her picturesque window every morning. That part of the story is based on something Von Gunten read in the papers; the rest is pure imagination. In the film, Elise finds a note tied to a box of cheese from the train conductor, and the two begin a correspondence that reinvigorates her routine existence.

‘Moana’: How Disney Crafted Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Oscar-Contending ‘How Far I’ll Go’

15 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The journey of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Oscar-nominated “How Far I’ll Go” song parallels the eponymous teenager’s arc in Disney’s “Moana.” That is, until the filmmakers of the animated contender figured out Moana’s quest, they struggled with her “I Want” song.

Naturally, Miranda was inspired by the Disney films of composers Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (including the two directed by “Moana’s” John Musker and Ron Clements: “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin”). “Lin very much wanted to write an ‘I Want’  song, but we had to figure out what Moana wanted,” Clements told IndieWire.
