Things got tense on American Idol last night between judge Harry Connick Jr. and contestant Quentin Alexander.

This whole thing is wack, but I'm going to shut up right now." Harry responded to the upset contestant during the show. "Quentin, if it's that wack, then you can always go home because Idol is paying a lot of money to give »

‘American Idol’ Judge Harry Connick Jr. Lashes Out at Contestant: ‘This Is Highly Disrespectful’ (Video)

16 April 2015 6:54 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Well, that was uncomfortable. Harry Connick Jr. took “American Idol” contestant Quentin Alexander to task on Wednesday’s show when the contestant fell out of line following his performance and declared, “This whole thing is wack.” After a solid rendition of Lenny Kravitz‘s “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” Alexander sported quite the sourpuss look, despite getting mostly positive feedback. Host Ryan Seacrest asked what’s up. “This sucks,” Alexander said, gesturing to the Bottom 2. “We have two of the best vocalists, my best friend is sitting over there, this whole thing is wack — and I’m going to shut up right now. »

Zoë Kravitz Dropped Down to 90 Pounds to Play Woman With Anorexia: ''I Related to Her in a Lot of Ways''

6 April 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Zoë Kravitz's latest movie may have hit too close to home for some, but for the actress, her own personal experiences are what drew her to the role of a woman battling anorexia. The 26-year-old daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet says in a new interview with Nylon that it was "pretty easy" for her to get into the mindset of her character in the indie drama The Road Within, a young woman whose struggle to be in control extends to her relationship with food as well. "I struggled with an eating disorder in high school and into my early 20s," Kravitz continued. "That's part of what actually attracted me to the role; I think it's really important to talk about body image and »

31 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Zoe Kravitz wants you to know her family isn't as cool as they look. The daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet poses for one incredibly sexy photoshoot in the April/May issue of Complex magazine, sporting nothing but black latex for a bondage-inspired set of pics. And while she slays in the risque snaps, it's what she had to say in the accompanying interview that really piqued our interest. "I don’t think anyone knows how funny we are,” she says of her famous parents. "It’s like this whole thing where people think we’re so cool and hippie and wear velvet, but we’re the f**king nerdiest people." “[My dad] would come pick me up from school sometimes when he was in town in a sports car and a netted shirt, and I’d be like, 'Ugh,'” she adds of her unique upbringing. "That was when ‘Fly Away’ came out. »

Katy Perry's 'Undiagnosed Insanity' and More Riotous FCC Complaints About the Super Bowl

18 March 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Won’t anyone think of the children?!

The Super Bowl may be long over, but Deadspin just obtained the entire list of complaints made to the FCC about, among other things, Katy Perry’s halftime show. In total, there were 34 complaints made this year -- contrasted with 48 the year that Beyoncé performed. Apparently Queen Bey just does everything better.

News: Want to dress like Katy Perry's infamous Left Shark? Now you can!

In actually, there aren’t many qualms with Katy herself, just these two (Note: All complaints are presented [sic], because the creative spelling and aversion to using punctuation is the best part):

“Tom this SuperBowl halftime show is not legal. Sexual harassment. Undiagnosed insanity.

Katy Perry is...

Lenny Kravitz is...”

“Show obviously directed at children contained lyrics that can only be called disgusting by anyone of normal sensibilities. A massive fine is in order to prevent viewing public from ever seeing a young female »

The Celebrity Guide to Being a Better Parent

17 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

We as mere mortals are simply lacking in the expertise needed to raise children. Luckily, that’s why we have celebrities. These better-than-human beings are always ready and willing to tell us what they’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong. Learn from them and be the best parent you can be!

Build your child up. Don’t discipline them to the point it impacts their self-esteem.

Alec Baldwin can be your guide.

Let Goop be in charge.

It just seems easier that way. Because hell hath no fury like Gwyneth Paltrow when Chris Martin takes the kids to McDonald’s.

Make sure your kids know the importance of sunscreen.

Even though Brooke was an adult woman, dad Hulk Hogan made sure to keep her safe from the sun’s rays!

Celebrate your child for who and what they are.

Like Joe Simpson! “Jessica never tries to be sexy. »

Zoë Kravitz hit the beach with pals in Miami on Saturday. The actress showed off her incredible body in a tiny bikini while taking a dip in the ocean. Zoë's smiley afternoon follows up her picture-perfect Friday. She got an early start on the weekend in a mismatched two-piece, wading in the ocean and walking along the sand. Zoë headed down to sunny Florida after spending time in NYC to promote the upcoming film Insurgent: she stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a game of giant beer pong (spoiler alert: she kicked his ass) and also chatted with the host about his hilarious recent encounter with her dad, rocker Lenny Kravitz. This isn't the first time we've gotten a glimpse of Zoë's toned frame, as she was spotted looking equally amazing in Miami back in December. Keep reading to see more photos of Zoë's beach day, »

NFL, Mandalay Sports Media Want To Sell Super Bowl Halftime Doc To Broadcast Network

25 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The annual Super Bowl halftime show is one of the most-viewed musical performances in the space of any year, but few people outside the crew working on the extravaganza have been able to get a look at how it gets put together.

Now, that may change. NFL Media and Mandalay Sports Media have produced a documentary film, “The Making of a Super Bowl Halftime Show,” and hope to sell the initial TV rights to one of the NFL’s media partners, which include CBS, NBC, Fox and Espn (and its sibling, ABC). The team behind the documentary began following Katy Perry, the featured act at this year’s halftime performance, after she agreed to take part in the event, and continued to do so through Super Bowl Xlix.

A Super Bowl halftime concert is unlike any other musical performance, explained Ron Semiao, vice president of programming for NFL Network, in an interview. »

In the deleted scene, which will appear on the film's upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release, Effie (Elizabeth Banks) prepares Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) to film her propaganda spots as District 13's new Mockingjay - "the face of a revolution" against the rich, fascist Capitol.

Oscars: Red Carpet Has its Own Share of Surprising Turns

17 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.

“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”

From J. Lo to Whitney Houston, Why the 2000 GRAMMYs Are as Memorable as Ever

8 February 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As the music industry plans to hand out awards for the best of 2014, it’s hard not to reflect on the GRAMMYs ceremony that happened just 15 years prior. The year was 2000, but in actuality it was a reflection of 1999, when just about anything could happen. Jennifer Lopez launched her musical career, Britney Spears brought back the Catholic schoolgirl outfit, and TLC was suddenly a group again (and not just a TV channel). But the year was more than that. And the 42nd annual Grammy Awards attempted to capture that – for better or worst.

Let’s look back on all the glory of 2000 ceremony 15 years later.

Before she was J. Lo – or Jenny from the block – Lopez was just an actress-turned-singer. But you wouldn’t know it at the awards. When she walked out in the green Versace dress to present the first award of the evening with David Duchovny, the last »
