DJ Mag Finally Reveals Their Top 100

18 October 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, all the speculation, rumors and heated arguments can come to an end, as DJ Mag has revealed their infamous Top 100 ranking list of the best DJs in the world. Despite being based on popularity rather than talent, people make a pretty deal out of this list every year, and even though it gets a lot of criticism, it’s always fun to see who comes out on top.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, DJ Mag announced the results of their poll and once again, Hardwell emerged victorious, taking the number one spot for the second year in a row. Not far behind him were all the usual suspects (Tiesto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Avicii, Martin Garrix etc.) and overall, this list is mostly what everyone predicted from the start, as it always is.

You can check out Hardwell’s official statement on his win below:

Never Mind the Buzzcocks: Rhod Gilbert on becoming the new host

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It feels like we've had guest hosts on Never Mind the Buzzcocks forever, but that's about to change. Yup, we have a new - permanent - host, and it's none other than comedian Rhod Gilbert. Since that's a pretty big thing to take on, we called up Rhod - while he was dealing with an unruly dog on a Welsh mountain (good preparation, in other words) - to find out how he'll cope with difficult guests, what'll be different and why the first single he ever bought is not a good sign of how credible he is...

Hi Rhod. Are you going to be more of a Lamarr or more of an Amstell?

"I don't think I'm either to be honest with you. You can go round in circles analysing these things to death. Both of those guys hosted a lot of shows, they left their mark on it indelibly. »

Remember Faith No More? The band behind 1989's smash hit, Epic? (If you're in your mid-30s to 40s, then this answer is yes.)

10 Times Batman Was A Total Jerk‏

8 July 2014 4:26 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

flickr

The Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader, Sir Hemingford Grey – whatever you want to call him, I think we can all agree that Batman is a hero. Even if the “super” part is contested – he’s just a man! A fabulously wealthy man! A fabulously wealthy man with a genius-level intellect and martial arts skills! He has no real powers! – the fact that Bruce Wayne’s crusade against crime in Gotham City and beyond is a noble one?

That’s pretty widely accepted. Everything he does is pretty heroic, from rescuing orphans to making sure The Joker stays locked up to using his aforementioned fabulous wealth for good causes. Good causes besides making super-duper sports cars, we mean.

Warner Bros.

But maybe we’ve got him all wrong. Maybe Batman isn’t the world’s greatest detective, the hero Gotham needs, or even an okay guy. Maybe Batman is really a total jerk, »

Ok, you should probably just get ready to call it a day. Go ahead and pull your car keys out of your pocket and move your cursor toward the 'shut down' prompt on your computer screen, because this video is going to be the high point of today, if not your life: After you've watched Dolly Parton play "Yakety Sax" on a tiny rhinestone-encrusted saxophone, there's literally nothing left for you to accomplish. "I was feeling rather saxy today," the 68-year-old singer told the massive crowd at the Glastonbury Music Festival on Sunday. "I wanted to do something to impress you. »

Dolly Parton's Glastonbury 'miming' gets Kay Burley slinging the mud | Media Monkey

Sky News anchor hits out at 'disappointing' performance, sparking protests from Jason Manford, Boy George and others

Dolly Parton may have won universal front-page acclaim for her performance at Glastonbury but Sky News veteran Kay Burley wasn't impressed. She accused the singer on Twitter of miming on stage, adding "how disappointing":

Oh, Dolly is miming. How disappointing

@JasonManford: @KayBurley noooooooo?!?! Please don't say she is! x well, Jolene was deffo helped along.... X

You bitch "@BoyGeorge: @KayBurley Leave our Dolly alone! Or I will tell about the fake tan and insteps too! Lol!

The Essential Boy George: Ranking His Top Ten Songs

13 June 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Boy George has been a part of our lives for well over thirty years, and was one of the first great stars of the MTV generation. As quickly as his star rose, though, it fell to earth, thanks to years of substance abuse.

Now clean and sober, he’s never been to scale those early heights again, but he’ll always be our Boy George, a reminder of the fun of early 80′s pop music, and we’ll always have that voice … soulful, vulnerable, and warm.

This weekend is his 53rd birthday, so let’s take a look back and name our favorite George hits, both solo and with Culture Club. These ten songs are a good way to start your Essential Boy George Collection.

10. Live My Life

Year: 1988

Album: Hiding Out

Chart Peak: #40

His first solo entry on the Hot 100, it’s from the soundtrack of Hiding Out, and »

How's this for the ultimate #Tbt? Here I am with someone from waayyyyyy back in the day -- Boy George.

My South Carolina hometown friends and I Loved Culture Club. Boy George, in particular.

This was before all the social media that permeates our society today, so we learned about most music from MTV. As you can imagine, we had never seen anything like Boy George or Culture Club! We loved his voice and the music... but the fashion, oh, the fashion!

Hot Mess Alert! Lady Gaga Wears the Worst Parts of the '80s

12 June 2014 | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We should probably just be grateful that Lady Gaga is wearing actual clothes and not some insane costume, but this look may as well be a Halloween horror contest entry. It's like the "Applause" singer rummaged through old bins of her mother's clothes and picked out the absolute worst combo from the box labeled "1979 through 1990." We know the New York native was just a kid when these looks came and went, but she should have seen enough Flashdance to know that this look says "streetwalker" and not "vintage style icon."  And yet the giant teased hair and silk jacket put an immediate smile on our faces. Yes, it's way too Pink Ladies take the Culture Club, but that's »

Junkfood Cinema: Return to Horror Clooney

3 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This week, Cargill and I go outside the Actor’s Studio to examine the early horror films of one Mr. George Clooney, or as you may now know him: God-King of Hollywood. Back in the glory days, the all-or-nothing days, before bestriding the narrow world like a colossus, Clooney was a struggling actor same as countless others, forced to take roles in b-horror outings in order to pay the rent. However, these horror films each had something special and of surprisingly quality to offer. Most interesting of the bunch is the never-released Grizzly II, on which Cargill and I go into startling detail. We also announce our July 4th appearance at CONvergence in Minneapolis! Can’t venture to America’s Hoth that weekend? No problem! We’ll be recording an episode during the Con and will make it available to you, our beloved Junkies, directly thereafter. You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema »

Tessa Watts obituary

18 May 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Pioneering producer of music videos who worked with Boy George, George Michael and the Sex Pistols

Tessa Watts, who has died of pancreatic cancer aged 68, was a pioneering British producer of music videos and a critical figure in the history of Virgin Records. In her time, what began as simple promotional devices for songs grew into a billion-dollar global industry, serviced by MTV, the 24-hour Us music television channel, whose European launch she oversaw in 1986.

George Michael, Culture Club, Beyoncé, the Sex Pistols, Madonna, the Human League and Genesis were among the many artists she worked, and several of the young directors she supervised, notably David Fincher and Michael Bay, went on to big Hollywood careers. She once estimated that she had made at least 1,500 music videos.
