Meet Sebastian Kole, the Preachers’ Son-Turned-Favorite New Songwriter of Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato and Kelly Clarkson

1 November 2016 2:09 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In the past five years, Sebastian Kole has gone from aspiring songwriter to one of the hottest new hitmakers.

After writing the hook on Jennifer Lopez’ 2012 single “Goin’ In,” Kole entered the competitive, high-turnover business of songwriting. But his early success was no fluke, and he solidified his position as one of pop’s most promising new writers when he penned Alessia Cara‘s smash “Here.”

And last month, Kole, 27, released his own debut album, Soup. People caught up with the singer about the soul-urban-pop sound that inspired his album, how he bet his career on a college football game, »

Farm Aid Grows: How John Mellencamp Is Continuing the 31-Year Crusade for Family Farmers

16 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When John Mellencamp took the stage at the first Farm Aid on Sept. 22, 1985, he had no idea that it would become an annual event. Neither did his fellow founding members, Willie Nelson and Neil Young. Instead, it was to follow in the mold of Live Aid, the colossal one-off charity concert beamed across the globe just a few months before. Where Live Aid had raised awareness and funds to combat the Ethiopian famine crisis, its rural descendant sought to support family farmers who couldn't compete with massive corporations and subsequently faced bankruptcy.

Thank you for being here today and for 15 years, ‘Princess Diaries’

3 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

Saturday Night Live traveled to Philadelphia for a special edition of “Weekend Update” at the Democratic National Convention, which MSNBC broadcast during Wednesday night’s coverage.

Hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, who also attended the Rnc last week in Cleveland, riffed on DNC highlights including President Obama’s speech, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders’ troops.

“Look at all of these white girls crying,” Che said of Bernie loyalists. “They look like Dave Matthews just played ‘Crash Into Me.'”

The duo also handed out Trump water to attendees outside the Wells Fargo Arena and made fun of ‘Bernie or Bust’ supporters there protesting Hillary Clinton’s nomination.

30 years ago today: ‘Karate Kid II’ showed us the Glory of Love

20 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, audiences were treated again to the utterly watchable pair of Daniel and Mr. Miyagi. The Karate Kid, Part II opened in theaters on June 20, 1986. In the sequel, released two years after the original film, Daniel’s wax on, wax off early training days are behind him, and he’s impressively slicing through six blocks of ice. The boy and his mentor travel together to Mr. Miyagi’s home village in Okinawa, Japan. Sparks fly between Daniel and Kumiko, the niece of Mr. Miyagi’s childhood girlfriend, to the synthesizer-tastic tune of “Glory of Love” by Peter Cetera. The song hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 later that summer and got an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. Other notable June 20 happenings in pop culture history: • 1948: The Ed Sullivan Show — then titled Toast of the Town — premiered on CBS. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis performed in that first episode, »

What Are We Eating? Full Trailer for 'At the Fork' Food Documentary

7 June 2016 4:59 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

A Film About Husbandry and Wife. An official trailer has debuted for a documentary called At the Fork, another documentary examining the food we eat and specifically the animals raised en mass for food. Don't worry, though, this one isn't about to make you feel ashamed for eating a hamburger or some bacon, it's a "surprisingly non-judgemental" look at our food and where it all comes from. This is a very beautiful trailer with some fantastic cinematography that sets up the story in this film. The doc features the song "Mercy" performed by the Dave Matthews Band (but it's not in the trailer). I recommend taking a look at this trailer. Here's the official trailer for John Papola's documentary At the Fork, direct from Vimeo: Filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife Lisa, offer up a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. »

‘The Martian’ meets ‘Room’ in this new Gary Oldman movie

27 May 2016 6:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Confession: I hadn’t heard anything about The Space Between Us before clicking on the trailer for it today. Watching it, seeing the trailer’s opening seconds show a crew of astronauts bound for Mars, I thought, “Oh man, these guys must hate that they’re releasing this in the shadow of The Martian.” The rest of the trailer banished that thought completely. Yes, The Space Between Us starts with scientists on Mars. But, despite one line in this preview that is the very three words of The Martian’s tagline (“Bring him home”), it looks like a totally different movie, one that may have more in common with Room than with Ridley Scott’s movie about the Red Planet. It looks like most of this will take place on Earth (and that doesn’t mean at Jpl). The Space Between Us is about a boy named Gardner. On the »

Dancing with the Stars: The Story Behind 'The Sound of Silence' Cover for Nyle Dimarco's Finale Dance

Nyle Dimarco is known for his powerful performances on Dancing with the Stars, but he's still turning things up a notch for finale week. Dimarco and his partner Peta Murgatroyd performed a contemporary-freestyle dance Monday to Disturbed's cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic "The Sound of Silence," which Dimarco feels resonates with being deaf. "My interpretation of the song is that for hundreds of years my Deaf community has suffered oppression, marginalization, and language deprivation ... but now we're starting to find hope in this new world," he wrote on Facebook.
