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. »

Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet Take a Friendly Stroll!

16 March 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Baby, it ain't over 'til it's over! Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet prove the theory that some people make better friends than lovers. The exes, who ended their six-year marriage in 1993, took a friendly stroll together in L.A. over the weekend. Lenny, 50, and Lisa, 47, are the proud parents of Insurgent's Zoë Kravitz, 26. Recently, the actress talked about her family in Ocean Drive magazine and praised her dad for getting along with her Jason Momoa. "They have so much love for each other," Zoë said of Lenny, Lisa and Jason. "It makes things so easy that my parents are still very close.

Zoë Kravitz's Impressive Bikini Body Makes a Splash in Miami

8 March 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

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. »

A newly released scene between Katniss Everdeen and Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 doesn't have quite the flair of Katniss's makeover in the first Hunger Games film - but its intent is just as fiery. 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.

Play: Et's GRAMMYs Bingo Game

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

1.The Dress.

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 »

5 February 2015 3:27 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While most were rooting for either the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday, Zoe Kravitz had her eye on another big moment during the Big Game.  Namely, dad Lenny Kravitz's performance, as he, along with Missy Elliott, took the Glendale, Ariz. stage with headliner Katy Perry.  And while there's no doubt that the 30-year-old pop star and 50-year-old rocker killed their performance, the only daughter of Lenny and actress Lisa Bonet couldn't help but take note of the moment when Katy Perry was caught grinding on her dad!  "@lennykravitz," the 26-year-old beauty captioned the pic of her pops and Perry onstage, opting to pic frame the image with a »

Super Bowl: A Rare, Behind-the-Scenes Look at Every Big Moment!

2 February 2015 6:12 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

You watched the Super Bowl, now get a glimpse of everything you didn't see. Et's cameras captured all the big moments behind the scenes.

Katy Perry gave a fierce halftime performance that had everyone talking, but backstage she was cool as a cucumber -- high-fiving before the halftime spectacular even as stagehands ran around in total chaos.

Lenny Kravitz graciously took a selfie with a crew member minutes before facing the crowd, and Missy Elliott played double duty, helping a dancer with his costume.

After the halftime performance, things were even more frantic as Katy was rushed to her dressing room, flanked by security guards.

John Legend helped launch the big game with a soulful rendition of "America the Beautiful," but before he sat down in front of the piano, Et was with the singer's wife, Chrissy Teigen, who had a message for husband.

An Ode to Missy Elliott, the True Star of the Super Bowl (and the Kids' 'New' Favorite Rapper)

2 February 2015 4:58 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Remember when Katy Perry performed at Super Bowl Xlix and everyone was like, “Aw, this is cute,” and then Lenny Kravitz came out with his guitar and everyone was like, “Oh, cool!” and then Missy Elliott came out and everyone was like “Get It Missy! Fire! Fire! Fiiiiiire! Work, Bitch, Work!”

When Katy teased Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott’s (sort of) surprise appearance, she said, "When you hear the first ring of the chord, I think jaws will drop and faces will melt." She wasn’t exaggerating. When we heard that iconic “buh bah bee bah buh” we were basically like:
