Picture it: Germany, 1989. (Yes, the first four words of this American Idol recap are inspired by The Golden Girls‘ incomparable Sophia Petrillo.)

Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff is performing a partial striptease in the one country that’s embraced his pop-star aspirations as warmly as they’ve accepted sauerkraut and spätzle on their dinner tables. He’s shaking what his mama gave him and belting some of the decade’s biggest hits: “Walking on Sunshine.” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” “Let’s Dance.”

10 Times WWE Superstars Were Embarrassed By Celebrities

20 March 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Since WWE is desperate for crossover appeal, celebrities have played an integral part in big events ever since the first WrestleMania featured appearances from Muhammad Ali, Cyndi Lauper, Mr T and Liberace.

Even to this day WWE parade celebrities on their shows and in the last 12 months alone stars such as Kevin Hart, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hugh Jackman, Jerry Springer and Jon Stewart have appeared on Raw in one capacity or another – usually with something to shill.

As you might expect, many of the celebrities appearing relish the chance of being in a WWE ring and being able to get physical. This usually means they teach the celeb how to do a hip toss and a WWE superstar’s dignity has to be sacrificed as a result.

Inevitably, whenever celebrities and wrestlers clash, it’s the former who comes off looking bad especially in the eyes of the more »

6 March 2015 4:31 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's hard to believe but it was 30 years ago tomorrow that "We Are The World" was released. Smokey Robinson was among the music superstars who were there and Et asked Smokey to relive that historic day back in 1985.

News: Pop Culture History Lesson: "We Are the World" Turns 30

"I had no idea that all those people were going to be there, but everybody in show business was there!" Smokey told Et.

Pop Culture History Lesson: 'We Are the World' Turns 30

6 March 2015 1:28 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's hard to bet on the future, but of this I'm certain: Three decades from now, I'll still know every lyric to "We Are the World."

Released 30 years ago this week, the chart-topping charity single occupies at least as much space in my brain as my second-grade teacher (who made our class sing it repeatedly) and my first Sony Walkman (purchased around the time of its release).

News: Pop Songs Meant For Other Singers

"We Are the World" wasn't just a pop-culture event; it was a bona fide movement. Inspired by the success of Band Aid's 1984 charity release, Do They Know It's Christmas?, entertainer and activist Harry Belafonte came up with the idea to record an American track for famine relief in Africa.

Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian produced the song, which was penned by two of the biggest musicians at the height of their fame: Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. More than 45 other »

Little Mix music inspired by 1980s

4 March 2015 11:51 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Little Mix's new music is inspired by the 1980s. The four-piece girl band - featuring Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall - revealed their new music will be a throwback to the decade, counting 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' hitmaker Cyndi Lauper as their biggest influence on their third studio album. Speaking to The Sun newspaper at their exclusive Bizarre Annual party in association with Ciroc and Bootea at Steam & Rye bar in London on Monday (02.03.15), Jesy said: ''Our biggest inspiration is Cyndi Lauper. We want it to be music for everyone - but especially for girls.'' However, the 61-year-old star isn't the only musician to have had an impact on their forthcoming release, as the 'Move' hitmakers are also huge fans of Prince. Jesy added: ''We love Prince too, he's an icon and definitely inspired the sound.'' And while the »

Alicia Florrick has a gay brother who happens to be one of her closest confidantes — an inconvenient truth my brain struggled mightily to suppress during this week’s installment of The Good Wife.

After all, to acknowledge the Alicia-Owen bond while big sis made not a peep of protest during a homophobic rant by a potential fat-cat campaign donor (a fantastically nasty Ed Asner) raised some painful questions: Has a heated run for state’s attorney cracked Alicia’s moral compass? Has her desire for victory and thirst for power turned her into a “bad person”? Or has Alicia always »

Sam Smith is Grammys frontrunner for New Artist, but watch out for Iggy Azalea

23 January 2015 10:30 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Male groups have been on a roll in the Grammys race for Best New Artist, winning the last three years in a row – Bon Iver (2011), Fun. (2012), and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (2013) – but solo men haven't fared as well. In fact only one such artist has won in the last 22 years: John Legend in 2005. 22 years is as long as British crooner Sam Smith has been alive, so while he'd normally be an underdog, he has one crucial advantage that could make him hard to beat. -Break- Will Beyonce finally add Album of the Year to her massive Grammys collection? Smith is only the 10th artist nominated in all four general-field categories in the same year: Best New Artist and Record, Album, and Song of the Year. The previous nine were: 1967 – Bobbie Gentry 1979 – Christopher Cross 1984 – Cyndi Lauper 1988 – Tracy Chapman 1990 – Mariah Carey 1997 – Paula Cole 2001 – Indie.Arie 2007 – Amy Winehouse 2 »
