News Outlets Prep for Surprises at This Year’s Unpredictable Political Conventions

13 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the penultimate night of the Republican National Convention in 2012, TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” drew an audience greater than any individual network’s coverage of the Gop gathering.

This embarrassing testament to voter apathy was hardly a surprise: Political conventions have long been carefully stage-managed coronations — choreographed infomercials at which crowd reaction is about as spontaneous as a sitcom’s in-studio audience.

But this year’s gatherings promise a twist: There’s sure to be news, particularly at the Republican National Convention, July 18-21 in Cleveland, and likely at the Democratic gathering the following week, July 25-28 in Philadelphia.

As they always have, the cable news networks will air nonstop coverage of the proceedings, this year hoping to replicate the record interest drummed up by some of the current cycle’s debates and forums.

ABC, CBS and NBC each will spend an hour of primetime on each night of both parties’ conventions — an hour »

18 Sweet Songs Famous Dads Have Made For Their Daughters

14 June 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Last year, Kanye West released the video for his song "Only One," which is dedicated to his 3-year-old daughter, North; the heartfelt tune, which also references Kanye's late mother, Donda, is a sweet ode to the baby girl he shares with his wife, Kim Kardashian, and is slightly reminiscent of Jay Z's song "Glory," which was released just days after he and Beyoncé welcomed their daughter, Blue Ivy, in 2012. Kanye and Jay Z are the latest in a long line of musicians - including Billy Joel, Lenny Kravitz, and Stevie Wonder - that have written, performed, and dedicated sweet songs to their little girls. In honor of Father's Day, we've rounded up 18 of the tunes here for your listening enjoyment. »

Sheila E. Responds to Linda Perry's Comment Saying She's 'Not Relevant' Enough to Do Prince Tribute at BBMAs

Linda Perry argues relevancy as the reason why Madonna was selected as the artist to honor Prince at the Billboard Music Awards.

‘Prison Break,’ ’24: Legacy,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and More Trailers From Fox’s 2016-17 Season

16 May 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.

Fall:

Lethal Weapon

Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.

The Exorcist

Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. »

28 Pictures That Prove Zoë Kravitz Had No Choice but to Be Ridiculously Good Looking

15 May 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It goes without saying that Zoë Kravitz is probably one of the most genetically blessed women in Hollywood - as the only daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, 27-year-old Zoë not only inherited her parents' good looks, but also their talent (and while she's not technically related to her stepdad, Jason Momoa, Zoë still shares his edgy sense of style and taste in tattoos). She's risen to fame both on screen in films like Mad Max: Fury Road, Dope, and the Divergent series and also showcases her musical prowess on stage with her band, Lolawolf. If that wasn't cool enough, Zoë also surrounds herself with ultracool, high-profile fashion designers and fellow starlets and has dated hot celebrity guys like Penn Badgley, Chris Pine, Drake, and her current beau, singer Twin Shadow. Lenny and Lisa were married from 1987 to 1993, but despite splitting, they've remained some of the most amicable exes ever. »

Exclusive: 'The Craft' remake isn't a remake - it's a '20 years later'

3 May 2016 1:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like so many iconic genre films before it, Andrew Fleming's cult 1996 teen horror-thriller The Craft has a remake in the works, this one with Honeymoon helmer Leigh Janiak attached to co-write and direct. But as producer Douglas Wick tells HitFix, the word "remake" doesn't quite do the project justice. "I wouldn't say that we wouldn't so much call it a remake as a 'twenty years later,'" Wick told us during an interview for the 20th anniversary of the seminal teen classic. He continued later: "There will be callbacks to the original movie, so you will see there is a connection between what happened in the days of The Craft, and how these young women come across this magic many years later."

Ingrid Chavez on Prince Collaborations: 'His World Was Like a Fairy Tale'

22 April 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Prince called Ingrid Chavez the "Spirit Child." She was his muse and collaborator at Paisley Park while he made his conceptual 10th album, Lovesexy, and she her poetry-driven LP May 19, 1992. The mutual inspiration is most clearly heard on songs like Prince's sensual "I Wish U Heaven" and its sister work, Chavez's "Heaven Must Be Near." Prince was so rapt by Chavez's poetry that he halted all progress on The Black Album while they were together for an intense three-month period during a bitter Minneapolis winter. Later, Prince cast Chavez »
