Have a Very '90s (and Early '00s) Christmas

19 November 2015 2:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Is it even possible to reminisce about Christmas in the '90s without getting Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" or *Nsync's "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" stuck in your head? How about TLC's "Sleigh Ride"? And I still have a vivid memory of listening to Adam Sandler's hilarious classic "The Chanukah Song" on the radio back before the days of Spotify. If you want to take a trip down holiday season memory lane, listen to our '90s - and early '00s, because it just wouldn't be complete without Britney Spears and Destiny's Child - playlist below! For more holiday tunes, get our romantic Christmas playlist here. "8 Days of Christmas," Destiny's Child "All I Want For Christmas," Mariah Carey "All I Want Is You (This Christmas)," *Nsync "Baby It's Cold Outside," Vanessa Williams and Bobby Caldwell "Carolina Christmas," Squirrel Nut Zippers "The Chanukah Song," Adam Sandler »

Is It Ok to Listen to R. Kelly?

15 November 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

R. Kelly whirls around, straining to look out his car’s rear window. “You see that?” asks the R&B star, sitting in the middle row of a black SUV cruising down Manhattan’s West Side. On this sparkling afternoon in early fall, he’s just noticed a young woman driving a red sedan one lane over. “Damn,” says Kelly, as the smoke from his cigar curls along his giant gold watch and up past his diamond earring. “Uhm-hmm,” says a bearded assistant in a baseball cap from the backseat. This man’s job, as best I can tell, is to light his boss’s cigar and carry around a small duffel bag. The SUV pulls even with the woman’s car, and Kelly, on his way to a Chelsea recording studio, goes quiet, staring at the woman as she looks straight ahead.Our driver changes lanes. Kelly grimaces, as »

R. Kelly -- I Don't See Nothing Wrong ... with a Sauna Bump N' Grind!! (Video)

10 November 2015 9:40 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_sdscpx8x"]] R. Kelly laid down a mind-blowing live performance ... for a dude in a Las Vegas sauna, and the video is freakin' amazing! R. was kicking it in the sauna at a 24 Hour Fitness in Vegas last weekend. When he first walked in, naturally ... someone asked, "Are you R. Kelly?" Kelly -- who, oddly, was fully clothed in the sauna -- didn't admit it was him, but instead said he could sing like R. Kelly. Then »

What’s New on Netflix: November 2015

30 October 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Netflix Streaming adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Here is a quick list of several that you might be interested in. Some of these may also have previously been on Netflix, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.Treat Yo' Self: Master of None (Season 1) In his new comedy about a 30-year-old New York actor, Aziz Ansari moves away from the perkiness he displayed on Parks and Recreation and toward a more downbeat, Louie- or Girls-like vibe. If you’ve been following Ansari closely, you might recognize Master of None as part of the comedian’s new career phase. Expect fewer jokes about apps and zerts and R. Kelly (though there will probably still be some material about R. Kelly) and more material about the »

R. Kelly -- Hoverboard to the Rescue

If you ever crash your Skywalker Hoverboard, better hope R. Kelly's there to hook you up with another one, which is exactly what happened to one lucky kid at a Chicago department store. The 9-year-old was helping his mom shop for a Burberry belt Sunday at the Nordstrom on Michigan Ave when he cruised off, and bit it so hard he broke his wheels in two.  First to the rescue -- R.

Watch Nina Dobrev Recite R. Kelly Lyrics in Bulgarian

8 October 2015 | | See recent Popsugar news »

Nina Dobrev has been busy promoting her new film The Final Girls, and she stopped by The Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday night to talk up the flick. During her appearance, Nina showed off her knowledge of other languages and treated the host and the audience to some of her best Bulgarian (fun fact: she's also fluent in French!). James gave her a line to translate - one of the lyrics from R. Kelly's "Bump N' Grind" - and she spiced it up with a little dance move. Watch the video below now, then see photos from Nina's recent night on the red carpet with her boyfriend, Austin Stowell. »

Jimmy Fallon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Cover Rihanna as Barbershop Quintet

25 September 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a skilled lip-syncer, as he proved during his last appearance on The Tonight Show when he squared off against Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Merchant. But the actor is equally impressive using his real voice. Levitt became a temporary fifth member of Fallon's barbershop quartet during Thursday's episode, adding some crooner pizzazz to Rihanna's "Bitch Better Have My Money."

The Ragtime Gals, decked out in their usual striped jackets, take a bubbly approach to Rihanna's thumping trap track, layering their voices into complex harmonies. "Pay me what you owe me, »

Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon Hold Silly, Silent Convo on 'Tonight'

15 September 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Justin Timberlake made an unexpected cameo on The Tonight Show Monday night, appearing in a short, silly bit entitled "Looks," in which he and Jimmy Fallon held an entire conversation without saying a word.

In a scene ostensibly ripped straight from a mid-2000s romantic comedy — down to the folksy soundtrack of Rogue Wave's 2005 cut "Eyes" — Fallon and Timberlake tilt their heads ever so slightly towards the slow-moving camera, bat their eyes and smile deeply at each other. Yet their looks speak volumes, communicating warmth, compassion, concern and understanding »

It's Here: The Epic History of Rap 6 From Jt and Jimmy Fallon

10 September 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have an epic history of performing their "History of Rap" series on The Tonight Show, and the guys are up to number six in their latest outing. This time, the guys tackle some newer jams, like Big Sean's "I Don't F*ck With You" along with some serious classics like R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" and "Informer," where Jimmy seriously goes ham. These two were just hamming it up at the Us Open, and we pretty much can never get enough of them. Watch and love. »

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake Reunite for Epic ‘History of Rap 6’ on The Tonight Show

10 September 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Some things just go together perfectly: peanut butter and jelly, burgers and fries, and, of course, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. When you put the two friends together, you get one of the better comedic duos out there today, and even though it feels like it’s been forever since they last performed together on Saturday Night Live‘s 40th Anniversary Special, the pair reunited last night on The Tonight Show for “History of Rap 6.” As you can guess, it was pretty epic. Fallon and Timberlake raced through 20-plus songs during their performance, impressing the audience with their rapping skills while also making them laugh along the way. It’s six wonderful minutes that will definitely make your Thursday feel almost like a Friday. Check out the video below, and for those curious, here’s a complete breakdown of each song Fallon and Timberlake performed: R. Kelly & Jay Z’s »

The pair wasted no time as the show opened with Timberlake and Fallon singing Jay Z and R. Kelly's "Fiesta" to kick off the dance party.

"History of Rap" spans over 30 years of hip-hop, from LL Cool J's "Rock the Bells" and Whodini's "Friends" to Fetty Wap's "My Way" and Drake's "Know Yourself." Along the way, Timberlake and »

Watch: Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake Debut ‘History of Rap 6’

9 September 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Justin Timberlake paid a visit to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, and the two wasted no time breaking into the sixth installment of “History of Rap” — complete with a tribute to Nwa’s “Straight Outta Compton,” which Fallon attributed to the success of the hip-hop group’s biopic, which has been a surprise smash for Universal at the box office this summer.

Jimmy, we’ve been through this before — you are not Straight Outta Compton, you are Straight Outta Upstate New York,” Timberlake gently told his companion.

Earlier in the day, the duo flexed their musical muscles in a different way when they were spotted dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” in the stands at the U.S. Open during Roger Federer’s quarterfinals match with Richard Gasquet.

Why 'Difficult People' works: Some of us actually talk like that

8 September 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Difficult People" succeeds where "Looking" failed: It speaks my language. Hulu's new comedy, which has officially been renewed for a second season, is more than a look at two misanthropic New York comics (played by Billy Eichner and show creator Julie Klausner) as they attempt to succeed despite their burnout instincts. It's also about characters who seem like, um, actual friends, and that means every one of their jokes isn't algorithmically designed to please the most 18-34 demo eyeballs.  "Difficult People" values the cynicism, sincerity, and pop culture exultation of its characters and chooses to mine those for laughs instead of the same old pile of self-deprecating asides and awkward silences. It's not about easy references to Disney princesses and "Mean Girls" for the clickbait generation; it's about adults who understand (and sometimes misunderstand, in the case of Julie's much-discussed R. Kelly tweet) the merit in their immaturity.  A new »
