13 March 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's been just over a decade since Fall Out Boy won their first award.

"For the record, there's no way we would have thought we would have ever won," a baby-faced Pete Wentz said back in 2004, as the band accepted the Streaming Award from the mtvU Woodies.

Next week, the band will travel to the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, to perform a career-spanning set at the 2015 Woodie Awards and accept the honor of being the first act to ever be inducted into the newly-minted Hall of Wood.

"It's pretty wild," Patrick Stump tells ETonline. "I feel like we've grown up with the Woodies in a lot of ways, too."

Global Citizen Festival Unites Rappers and Royalty

28 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It takes a rare kind of strategic vision to put Jay-z and the queen of Sweden on the same stage to raise money to fight poverty.

Producer Ken Ehrlich seems to be hardwired with that ability.

Ehrlich embarked on a new philanthropic endeavor in 2014, joining forces with the Global Poverty Project.

Founded in 2008 by Australian philanthropist Hugh Evans and Simon Moss, the Gpp aims to end extreme poverty all over the world by 2030 by inspiring people to become “global citizens,” and encouraging them to campaign for fair trade and governmental aid for the impoverished.

The Gpp’s popularity among celebs (Olivia Wilde and Hugh Jackman are supporters) is reflected in its annual Global Citizen Festival, a day-long music festival in Central Park that offers free admission to those who use social media to take action for the organization. Acts who have performed at the fest include Neil Young, the Foo Fighters and the Black Keys. »

TCA 2015: Leary also takes a pot shots at pretentious actors while promoting his upcoming FX show

Denis Leary delivered a profanity-fueled riff to weary journalists limping to the finish line Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena.

A frequent target of his barbs: PBS, which occupies the final two days of the press tour. “I know, you’ve been here for 14 days? Twelve. And you’ve got two days of fucking PBS coming up, right? So the FX day is your fucking last chance.”

Harmonix Releases First Rock Band Dlc In Years

12 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Rock Band made it almost two years since new songs hit the game, but that is all changing today with a tiny update for fans.

Just yesterday I saw the entire Rock Band set at a thrift store and was destined on buying it. Then my girlfriend told me to save my money, and we bought a desk instead. Dry humor aside, I have to admit I didn't think of Rock Band much at all up until that point.

Then today I see it on my news feed again! Harmonix has released 3 new tracks for Rock Band, which marks the first time the game saw new content since April 2013, almost two years ago! That person that actually bought the Rock Band set is one lucky duck, or he's really good at knowing the future!

The Songs include :

Arctic Monkey - "R U Mine?" (Yep, they spelled it like that. »
