James Corden Basically Remade Beyoncé's Lemonade, and It'll Make You Do a Spit Take

27 April 2016 | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

As it turns out, when James Corden dresses up like Beyoncé, he actually ends up looking like Axl Rose. That's one of the lessons we can learn from the late-night host's parody of Lemonade, but that's not all. Corden all but re-created her visual album, inserting some melodramatic jabs at Donald Trump and, yes, squeezing his very own lemons. Oh yeah, things get weird. But what did you expect from the man who inserted his head into Game of Thrones' Hall of Faces? Check out the video, and get the scoop on Lemonade. »

Coachella: 5 Things to Look Out for at the 2016 Festival

15 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Guns N’ Roses, Re-loaded:

The legendary rock band is reuniting for the first time in over 20 years — but there’s still much room for speculation in what could turn out to be an even more major surprise reunion.

Coachella will bring together Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, but no word on remaining originals Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler, nor which members from Guns N Roses’ latest lineup will be involved. Axl Rose and Slash have not reunited since 1993 so that reunion alone is huge news for hardcore fans, but rumbling rumors on social media have hinted that Stradlin and Adler could turn up in Indio, Calif.

The festival will serve as a kickoff of sorts for the upcoming Guns N’ Roses “reunion” tour, which the band has confirmed will span across 21 cities in North America with Axl Rose, Slash and McKagan — but yet again, no word on who else »
