15 August 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Some people get their best ideas in the shower. Lionel Richie apparently does his thinking elsewhere in the bathroom. According to longtime pal Kenny Rogers, the "Hello" singer wrote Rogers' 1980 hit song "Lady" while "in the toilet" at a recording studio. "I called Lionel, and I said, 'I'd like for you to write a song for me,'" the "Islands in the Stream" singer, now 75, recalled on the Today show on Thursday, Aug. 14. "Lionel doesn't write entire songs. He writes ideas." Sometimes unfinished ideas. Rogers [...] »

12 August 2014 12:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Megan Fox continued her "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" press tour by stopping by "Chelsea Lately," where she discussed her crazy home life after having two kids with husband Brian Austin Green. The demands of parenthood are exhausting, Fox said, where "You don't sleep [and] every minute is ... dedicated to someone else." The actress said she's become a homebody because she's always taking care of her sons, though she admits that she prefers not interacting with others. "I don't like people," she told host Chelsea Handler. "That's why you want to hang out with f--king turtles," Handler observed.

Man of many talents Chris Hardwick chatted with "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon about all his various projects, »

The Doha Film Institute has set Dec.1-6 as the dates for the second edition of its Ajyal Youth Film Festival, where hundreds of kids and adolescents aged 8-21 will be the jurors.

Ajyal’s youth jury programme, the Doha Film Experience, is the central plank of the fest, which fosters film education in Qatar and the surrounding Persian Gulf region where moviemaking is a relatively new storytelling form.

 

More than 400 jurors from 45 countries – divided in three age categories: 8-12, 13-17 and 18-21 – attended last year’s inaugural edition. The event is modelled on Italy’s Giffoni Film Festival for children with whom the Dfi has a partnership.

 

The first edition proved that film can truly bring people together,” enthused Ajyal fest artistic director Fatma Al Remaihi (pictured) in a statement.

 

“Through the second edition we will continue to contribute to the growth of Qatar’s film culture with a »

Dolly Parton on Miley Cyrus's transformation: 'She's had to go to drastic measures'

15 May 2014 7:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nashville, Tenn. (AP) — As Miley Cyrus' godmother, Dolly Parton has spent a lot of time answering reporters' questions about the Hannah Montana actress turned pop ingenue as she promotes her new album, "Blue Smoke," out this week. Though she says she worries about Cyrus as if she were her own child, she supports the sometimes shocking decisions her goddaughter has made as she moved from child star to a confident — and complicated — young woman. "I'll never say anything bad about Miley 'cause I know she's smart," Parton said. "And I know she's talented. And I know she's had to go to drastic measures to try to make her point: 'Leave me alone. I am not Hannah Montana anymore. I want to grow up.'" The 68-year-old Country Music Hall of Fame member compared Cyrus criticisms to those who chided her when she first came on the scene — a buxom »

10 Completely Insane Musician Team-Ups (That Actually Happened)

10 May 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The hallowed halls of music history are festooned with classic duets, from Johnny Cash and June Carter to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan to, um, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Okay, so not all harmonious pairings are created equal – or even necessarily with good harmonies – but some are even less equal. In fact, some of that make absolutely no logical sense.

Take, for example, this week’s news that Cher has swapped out Sonny Bono in favour of the Ghostface Killah, Method Man, RZA, Gza, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble, and Grub. Yes, the singer/actress/Twitter expert is set to appear on not one but two songs on the band’s weird new one-off record Once Upon A Time In Shaolin (credited under the name Bonnie Jo Mason, no less). Cher Rules Everything Around Me, Anyone?

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler Braves Storm of Policy Battles

30 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tom Wheeler believes that television programming is in the midst of a Golden Age.

When asked what shows he watches, the FCC chairman doesn’t hesitate, reeling off “House of Cards,” “True Detective” and “Sherlock,” and he admits to enjoying the fictional Beltway shenanigans on “Scandal” as a guilty pleasure.

In the coming year, Wheeler may well need a bit of such escapism as he navigates the commission through a storm of telecommunications policy battles that are blowing through the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. That is particularly the case with net neutrality, as he has defended his latest proposal for rules of the road for the Internet as tough and enforceable amid harsh criticism from public interest advocates that they are too weak.

That’s not the only controversy. From pulling off spectrum auctions — so controversial to so many — to being the crucial vote on Comcast’s »
