Jake Gyllenhaal was put in the hot seat on "The Howard Stern Show" on Wednesday -- where talk quickly turned to his famous ex, Taylor Swift. It started innocently enough, with Stern asking Jake if he realized "Good Morning America" had him walk out to one of Swift's songs, "Bad Blood," when he appeared on the morning show earlier this week. "First of all, I did not hear that," Jake replied. "When I'm doing an interview when you're up at 5 a.m. and you can't really make sense of words, you're not thinking about the background music that's playing behind you." "I'm sure they have so much music on that show playing all the time. It's just one of those things," Jake added, defending the show. When asked if he would have recognized a Taylor Swift song had he noticed the music, he replied, "Of course." Then Stern took the »

Can you imagine Baba Booey as Michael Peña's Luis and Robin Quivers as Evangeline Lilly's The Wasp? It almost happened a long time ago, when King of All Media Howard Stern set out to acquire the rights to Marvel's Ant-Man. The film is a hit, debuting at #1 on the box office charts over the weekend. But things could have been very different for the diminutive hero. And this all happened long before Edgar Wright came aboard, and Iron Man set up the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it today.
The long-standing radio talk show and America's Got Talent host revealed this interesting bit of trivia on the The Howard Stern Show this week. He was in the middle of interview Ant-Man star Paul Rudd when the subject came up. If Howard Stern had of succeeded in getting the rights, we would have seen Ant-Man on the big »
The show must go on, just without Howard Stern. The shock-jock turned reality judge is leaving America's Got Talent after four years. "I'm going through my own career evaluation right now…In all seriousness, I've told you, I'm just too f--king busy…something's got to give," Stern said on his radio show. "NBC's already asked me what my intentions are for next year, whether or not I'd come back, I kind of have told them I think this is my last season. Not I think, this is my last season." Stern said he's spoken to NBC and it was a hard conversation to have. Without Stern, he said the show will move production to Los Angeles. Robin Quivers pressed »
I don't have a lot of friends who listen to "Howard Stern, and many of them are baffled by my obsession with the King of All Media. I suppose the fact that I'm a gay man has something to do with this, given that Howard is traditionally viewed as a straight-male icon. But I love him, I listen to every second of his show and I will continue to do so until he chooses to retire (a distinct looming possibility given that his contract with Sirius is up at the end of the year). I'll admit: I'm a latecomer to the Stern universe. I didn't become a regular listener until about six years ago (i.e. the very tail end of the Artie era) and missed out on the "Golden Age" terrestrial years -- though the claim that he was at his peak in the '80s and '90s is often made, »

In the interview, Madonna is asked about a 1994 appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman where the singer repeatedly dropped "F-bombs" at the late-night talk show host, and casually explains to Stern how dating the late rapper might have led to that moment.
"I don't know, I was in a weird mood that day," she said of the appearance. "I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time, and the thing is he got me all riled up about life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangster."
