23 February 2017 12:52 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The “Bob’s Burgers Music Album” is coming your way May 12, and it’s loaded up with more goodies than a Poutine on the Ritz Burger.

This is not the time to be modern and go the digital route for your music. Hell, even buying the CDs isn’t old-school enough. Instead, if you buy the the “Bob’s Burgers Music Album” deluxe limited-edition gift box, that comes with three LPs  (in “condiment-colored” vinyl?!), a Bob’s Buskers seven-inch white vinyl LP, a hardbound lyric book (for those times you need to know more than just “Butts, Butts, Butts”), a sheet music collection, three original posters and a lot more. What is “more” you ask? Take a look at the unboxing video below featuring Teddy’s hairy arms and mumbly narration to see everything:

Of course, the two-cd album is still chockfull of “Bob’s Burgers” audio goodness, which amounts to 107 songs. »

26 January 2017 6:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Well, it didn’t take long for Riverdale — The CW’s moody, sexy new take on the classic Archie comics — to get dark, did it?

Thursday’s series premiere opens with aspiring novelist Jughead telling us how the town of Riverdale’s innocent exterior hides some nasty secrets. One of those secrets: the fate of high-school jock Jason Blossom, who vanished on the Fourth of July after an early-morning rowboat ride with his sister Cheryl. (Oh c’mon, like you didn’t take early-morning rowboat rides with your siblings growing up.) Cheryl is later found drenched on the riverside, and Jason is missing. »

26 January 2017 10:40 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 63-year-old '80s pop icon stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday and shared her disapproval over Madonna's speech at the Women's March on Washington.

“I don’t think that it served our purpose,” Lauper said to host Andy Cohen. “Anger is not better than clarity and humanity. That is what opens people’s minds.”

Instead, Lauper pointed out that Scarlett Johansson, who spoke about her experience with Planned Parenthood, had a much better speech.

“It was clear, it was eloquent,” Lauper said. “Yelling just jacks people up. It doesn’t communicate any kind of humanity or story that would open another person’s mind.”

Cyndi Lauper Doesn’t Think Madonna’s Women’s March Speech ‘Served Our Purpose’ (Video)

26 January 2017 8:29 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Reaction to Madonna‘s profanity-laden Women’s March speech has largely fallen along party lines. Anti-Trump liberals loved the speech for openly going after those who scoffed at the March and its concerns with a “f*** you,” while Donald Trump’s supporters lambasted her for saying she was “ashamed to be an American” and admitting that she at one point had thoughts about “bombing the White House.” But Madonna‘s latest critic is a celebrity who also took part in the Women’s March.

Cyndi Lauper Criticizes Madonna’s Women’s March Speech on Watch What Happens Live

26 January 2017 7:42 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This article originally appeared on EW.com. 

The Women’s March on Washington last weekend had some memorable big-name celebrity speeches. Madonna’s, for one, was filled with swears and invective, which her fellow ’80s pop star Cyndi Lauper criticized during a Wednesday night appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

“I don’t think that it served our purpose,” Lauper, 63, said. “Anger is not better than clarity and humanity. That is what opens people’s minds.”

As a counter-example, Lauper pointed to Scarlett Johansson’s speech at the Women’s March, in which she invoked her personal experiences with Planned Parenthood. »

What Is an Egot? The Grand Slam of Show Business — Explained

24 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s the most coveted honor in all of Hollywood: the Egot.

Representing the top awards in television (Emmy), music (Grammy), film (Oscar), and theater (Tony), it’s considered the grand slam of show business — a four of a kind sweep that only the rarest of stars have been able to achieve.

The term was coined by Miami Vice actor Philip Michael Thomas, who first told it to the Associated Press in 1984 at the height of the NBC action show’s success. “That stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony,” he said. “Hopefully in the next five years I will win all those awards. »

Wake up, Rod, Twitter’s got something to say to you.

The legendary belter’s long been a fan of soccer — the inner gatefold to his second solo album featured his band posing in front of a goal net — but his appearance at the recent Scottish Cup draw has fans thinking of a different kind of cup.

Fans on Twitter speculated that Sir Rod may have been a little tipsy during the Sunday appearance, and the Daily Record alleged at one point that he snubbed a handshake from Scottish Football Association president Alan McRae.

Animated Movie Music Features Everything From Pop Hits to a Broadway Star

6 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New songs, covers of old songs, chart-topping singers, Broadway tunesmiths: musically speaking, this year’s crop of animated movies has a little of everything. Both “Trolls” and “Sing” feature lavishly produced covers of classic songs. “Sing” features no fewer than 65 tunes, of which just 20 are the original master recordings; the other 45 not only needed to be cleared but arranged, performed, and animated.

It was a two-year process, says executive music producer Harvey Mason Jr., a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer whose resume includes everyone from Justin Bieber to Beyonce. “It was the craziest job ever,” he says. “We did some of the songs eight or nine different times in different ways.”

Because “Sing” is about a vocal competition, the settings ranged from auditions to a singing, dancing finale. Characters include a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), a Sinatra-esque mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a soulful gorilla (Taron Egerton), a shy elephant (Tori Kelly), and »
