Like Father, Like Son! Tom Brady Plays Football with Lookalike Son Jack at Charity Game

3 June 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Like father, like son!

Patriots quarterback and five-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady had some tough competition on the field Friday — his 9-year-old son Jack!

The pair tossed around the pigskin together at a charity event that kicked off a weekend of fundraising physical activities in support of Best Buddies International — a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Held at Harvard Stadium in Allston, Massachusetts, the Tom Brady Best Buddies Football Challenge bought together Brady and fellow Patriots like Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola for two hours of competition. »

Exclusive: Natasha Bedingfield on How Her Struggling Parents Fed a Family of 6 on $6 a Day

25 May 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Wearing a gorgeous Bebe Aguirre floral two-piece and belting out fan favorite “Pocketful of Sunshine” at one of her bucket list concert venues, it wouldn’t be surprising if Natasha Bedingfield was secretly pinching herself at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month.

Since she began pursuing her music dreams, the 35-year-old singer has performed for the Pope and former President Barack Obama, earned a Grammy nomination, toured with Justin Timberlake and New Kids on the Block and collaborated with everyone from Lifehouse and Rascal Flatts to Nick Carter and Nicki Minaj.

But the glitzy life is a world away from her childhood in the U.K., where the singer reveals her New Zealand-born parents, John and Molly, struggled to make ends meet, feeding their family on less than $6 a day and relying heavily on supermarket scraps.

Variety Introduces ‘Synch This!’ — New Music Column Spotlighting Songs Ripe for Licensing

25 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Synch This” is a new Variety column written by Mac Presents VP and former Billboard branding reporter Andrew Hampp, highlighting new songs that we deem ripe for synch use. Insiders can skip over the “Synch 101” in the introduction, which will be linked to in future columns, to get straight to this week’s pick.

The term “synch” is a funny one – even if you’ve never heard it used before, it’s a convenient catch-all for something you hear every single day.

Short for “music synchronization license,” synchs have long been a prime method for music, new and old, to get discovered in TV commercials, box-office hits and the latest buzzy TV hit. So much so that synch revenue accounted for 2% of the recorded music industry’s global revenue in 2016, or roughly $314 million, an all-time high.

The first time I heard the term “synch” used it was in reference to “Unwritten” singer Natasha Bedingfield’s latest album »

Marshawn Lynch’s Wedding Gets Crashed and Trashed in Train’s Hilarious New Music Video with Ken Jeong and George Lopez

12 May 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Grammy-winning and platinum-selling rock band Train dropped a very star-studded music video on Friday for their second single “Drink Up,” off their 10th studio album a girl a bottle a boat.

The glorious video is set at NFL running back Marshawn Lynch’s wedding. When comedians Ken Jeong, George Lopez and Jim Breuer discover they’ve been left off the invite list, they think “it’s a great idea” to take matters into their own hands, put on their best suit and tie, and crash the nuptials alongside Train’s lead singer, Pat Monahan.

— A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

Spoiler Alert: Read on if you have already watched the season finale of The New Celebrity Apprentice.

A winner has finally been crowned and hired for a job that does not actually exist!

That’s right, Arnold Schwarzenegger super-fan Matt Iseman was selected as the champion of The New Celebrity Apprentice by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.

'The New Celebrity Apprentice' Crowns 2017 Winner

13 February 2017 8:36 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Boy George pulled out all the stops in the final challenge of The New Celebrity Apprentice, but his bid fell short as American Ninja Warrior host Matt Iseman was crowned winner Monday during the NBC show's 2017 season finale.

For the final task Boy George brought out the star power of Caitlyn Jenner, Mel. B., and "cruise director" Carson Kressley before capping it off with a performance by Natasha Bedingfield, who sang "Pocketful of Sunshine" before joining the Boy for a duet of the hit "Karma Chameleon" in a final bid seeking to gain favor with Carnival Cruise Lines.

The New Celebrity Apprentice Finale Recap: Did the Right Star Win?

After seven weeks of fierce competition, Monday’s Celebrity Apprentice found Arnold Schwarzenegger breaking out his “choppa” for one last ride.

Of course, the drama didn’t start right away; the first half of the show’s hour-long finale was relatively smooth sailing, save for Caitlyn Jenner’s little traffic hiccup. It actually felt like more of a celebration, complete with performances from Wilson Phillips and Natasha Bedingfield. (It was her finest hour since she played at the Degrassi prom, if I can be real for a minute.)

Emma Stone’s Most Magical Musical Moments

7 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Is there anything that Emma Stone can’t do? She acts, she dances, and yes, she sings.

But even though everyone fell in love with her charming (and Golden Globe-nominated!) performance in La La Land, Stone has been showing off her musical chops for years, starting with her secret reality show past, to her stint on Broadway, to her performance as a Gaga-esque pop star in Popstar.

Warning: This may make you fall even more in love with her.
