As a large, bearded man whose wardrobe consists of many hooded sweatshirts and whose primary occupation includes typing words into the void, I’m not ashamed of many things. I’m certainly not ashamed of my unabashed love for Pitch Perfect, the 2012 musical comedy about the highly competitive world of collegiate acapella. It starred the adorable Anna Kendrick alongside a host of comedic and musical talents such as Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson and that guy from Workaholics whose name I always get confused with the guy from Maroon 5 (Adam DeVine). If you’ve seen the first film, you know that it’s about as infectious and fun as any movie we, the collective of moviegoers, have seen in the last half decade. And now there’s making a sequel. As a teenaged girl might say, Squeee!! The first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is now online following a debut at a quote-a-long event in Los Angeles last »

The only think that can stop Taylor Swift is Taylor Swift. The singer conquered the Billboard Hot 100 again this week, with her new single "Blank Space" replacing her own "Shake It Off" as the No. 1 song. Swift is the only female performer in Hot 100 history pull off the feat of replacing her own song in the top spot, which puts her in the company of such noted acts as The Beatles, Boyz II Men, Diddy, Ja Rule, Nelly, Outkast, Usher, T.I. and the Black Eyed Peas (who, to be fair, included Fergie). "Shake It Off" was No. 1 for four straight weeks and is now at No. 3, while "Blind" makes the huge leap from No. 13 to No. 1 this week. Both tunes hail from her new album "1989." Likewise, "1989" also pulled off the rare accomplishment of sending its first two singles to No. 1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "The Heist" did it last »

After masking Hemsworth's Australian accent with a voice modulator, Kimmel connected with him via Skype and then let his audience ask "yes" or "no" questions in an attempt to narrow down the star's identity.
Once a few heartthrobs had been eliminated with questions like, "Have you played a super hero?", "Do you have a famous brother?" and, "Does the superhero you play use a hammer?", it became clear that the Thor star was People's Sexiest Man Alive.
People's newly minted Sexiest Man Alive Chris Hemsworth credits Matt Damon with teaching him to be hot. "I learned everything there is about being sexy from Matt," the Avengers star, 31, joked on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, riling the host with talk of the Kimmel's (faux) nemesis. Hemsworth, who phoned into the show via Skype for the big reveal, went on to thank his predecessors. "Thank you Matt and all the other previous intelligent men, »

Matt McAndrew, Mia Pfirrman and Craig Wayne Boyd gave standout performances in the first episode of the live playoff rounds of The Voice.
To kick off the live rounds, Carson Daly invited Adam Levine and his band, Maroon 5 to perform “Animals” before talking to coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams about their teams going into the ‘live playoffs.’
Team Blake And Team Adam Perform In Live Playoffs
Team Blake’s Taylor Brashears was the first contestant to perform in the live playoffs, and she went full country with “Long Time Gone.” Taylor impressed the judges with her fancy fiddle playing and unshakable confidence, but the song lacked any truly standout vocal moments. Pharrell complimented her on being able to keep things “fresh and interesting,” and Gwen said she sounded “beautiful” and applauded her for her comfort onstage.
Team Adam’s Chris Jamison was up next, and he »
The Voice's season-seven playoffs began on Monday, which has teams trimmed down from five to three: two picked by America, and one more saved by each coach. The first live round also introduced the new Voice app, which allows viewers at home to begin voting before the end of the episode, which also featured a performance of Maroon 5's "Animals." Monday's episode — of average performances, with very few standouts — saw the singers of veteran coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton take the stage, while new mentors Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams (with a new blue hat!)

If Adam Levine throws a Halloween party, it's probably going to be pretty sexy. Unfortunately, Melissa McCarthy missed that memo. The comedian recalled an embarrassing incident from her Halloween past on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, back when she and husband Ben Falcone lived on the same block as the Maroon 5 crooner - and scored an invite to his annual bash.

'The Voice' coach has a catchy new single.
Gwen unveiled her new solo single "Baby Don't Lie" on Monday, and it's just as catchy as we'd hoped! But with co-writers/producers Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and Noel Zancanella on board, we'd expect nothing less.
The song is Stefani's first solo effort since her 2006 album Sweet Escape, although her band No Doubt made a triumphant return to music in 2012 with Push and Shove.
Pics: So, We Didn't Love Gwen's Emmys Dress...
Billboard reports that Stefani is aiming for a December release for her forthcoming album, which she has been working on with her Voice co-star (and "Hollaback Girl" collaborator) Pharrell Williams. The publication also reports that Stefani is simultaneously working on new material for another No Doubt album.

Gwen Stefani's new solo single "Baby Don't Lie" is out, and it's running all over the place. At first it threatens to be a gum-chewing M.I.A. hip-hop hybrid. Then it soars straight into Ellie Goulding dance-pop territory, and then mid-tempo love song with a hiccup at the end, plus a OneRepublic counter-melody on the tags after the chorus. Then Iggy Azalea's influence rears its head. Well, at least the whiff of OneRepublic can be partly to all of the co-songwriters: Ryan Tedder, who worked with Benny Blanco and Noel Zancanella to write this sonic Frankenstein. Tedder leads OneRepublic and Blanco -- who produced on OneRepublic's latest album "Native" -- could be a solid lead as to why anybody would ape the slack-voweled sounds of Iggy Azalea: he co-wrote pop-laden "Black Widow" for the Aussie rapper. Zancanella also co-wrote and co-produced for OneRepublic, and was behind Ellie Goulding's "Burn, »
