Why Donald Trump Should Have Gotten Song Permission from The Rolling Stones (But Not Queen)

23 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Republican National Convention this year in Cleveland ended as it started — with complaints over supposedly unauthorized use of music. Both "Happy Together" by The Turtles and "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones triggered objections from those bands. Between the opening and the closing songs came other tunes like "We Are the Champions" by Queen and "Here Comes The Sun" by George Harrison of The Beatles prompting protest from the artists or their estates. As the Democrats take the stage for their own convention in Philadelphia this week, it's worth a moment to look back

George Harrison Estate Hilariously Trashes Rnc Over ‘Offensive’ Use of ‘Here Comes the Sun’

22 July 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Here comes the shade. The estate of former Beatle George Harrison tore into the Republican National Convention, after the Rnc played Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun” to accompany Ivanka Trump’s entrance onstage Thursday. The estate trashed the Rnc, calling its use of the song “offensive” and definitely unauthorized. Also Read: Queen Blasts 'Unauthorized' Use of 'We Are the Champions' at Gop Convention “The unauthorized use of #HereComestheSun at the #RNCinCLE is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate,” read a tweet on the official Twitter page of Harrison, who died in 2001.

Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin And Melissa Benoist Talk Superheroics On Conan

22 July 2016 7:21 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The stars of The CW's Arrow, Flash and Supergirl were on Conan O'Brien last night and kicked off their appearance with a discussion about the difficulties of wearing superhero costumes. Check out Amell's shifty eyes when O'Brien mentions that Green Arrow is getting a new costume. As it turns out, that was just the set up for a joke but Amell did look a bit worried there, as if something that shouldn't be discussed was about to be leaked. Perhaps we'll be seeing Green Arrow in a new costume during the show's Sdcc panel on Saturday. Last month, Amell confirmed a new costume was in the works, though it remains to be seen rather it will be a slight tweak to Oliver Queen's Season 4 duds or a complete overhaul.     Conan also referenced Melissa and Grant's time on Glee and asked whether there's any chance of a musical crossover between the two shows. »

‘The Apprentice’: 9 Lessons About Donald Trump From Binge-Watching the First Season

21 July 2016 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Donald Trump’s entrance earlier this week at the Republican National Convention — buttressed by strobe lights, fog and a soundtrack (Queen’s “We Are the Champions”) — may have raised some eyebrows. But not for loyal viewers of “The Apprentice.” That’s how the Donald has rolled ever since becoming a breakout TV star in 2004. Just take an episode from the first season, during a challenge set at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Donald swoops in like Bruce Wayne via his own Trump-branded helicopter, then strolls through the casino’s lobby, shaking hands with wide-eyed gamblers. “How are you doing everybody?” Trump says, sounding like a political candidate.

In the months leading to Trump’s coronation as the Republican nominee for president, the press has parsed through his old interviews, TV appearances and even chapters from his aspirational tome, “The Art of the Deal.” But what about the most telling document about what makes Donald run »

'Donald Trump' Talks Melania's Speech, Dances Like Michael Jackson on 'Fallon'

20 July 2016 7:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In a hilarious fake Rnc address from Tuesday's Tonight Show, "Donald Trump" (Jimmy Fallon) defended wife Melania against accusations of plagiarizing Michelle Obama. "Did you see Melania?" he asked behind a fake Rnc podium. "She stole the show – literally. I mean, she delivered her speech like a true First Lady – that First Lady being Michelle Obama, but still. She might have plagiarized, but you've gotta admit, she did it 'Harder Better Faster Stronger.'"

Attempting to jazz things up, Fallon’s interpretation included a quick Michael Jackson-esque dance number and an old-fashioned top hat which he quickly discarded before taking to the podium. »
