Saturday Night Live featured a pair of chart-toppers on its Mayweather/Pacquiao-conflicting episode: host Scarlett Johansson's Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently busting box office records while musical guest Wiz Khalifa is firmly entrenched atop iTunes' Top Songs with his Furious 7 cut "See You Again."

How to Get a Red-Carpet-Worthy Gel Manicure...at Home!

27 April 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Looking for a manicure to last the duration of a two-week vacay? Want your digits to shine like a new car? Gel manicures can do all that and more, which is why celebs like Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez rely on the polish innovation to make their red-carpet and American Idol appearances. Thanks to the development of at-home manicure systems, we don't have to have a personal manicurist on hand—or at the salon—in order to reap gel benefits. But there's more to creating a clean gel manicure than queuing up an episode of Mad Men and throwing on paint while holding fingers under an Led lamp. To get the most from your Diy gel manicure, try these tips. Prep is key: Those who are »

This week in tv news: ‘Daredevil’ renewed, ‘Sirens’ cancelled

25 April 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2.  Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either.  They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there’s our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of.  A very special thank »

Scarlett Johansson, previously announced, will return to host for the fourth time on May 2 — just one day after the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron — joined by musical guest Whiz Khalifa in his SNL debut.

Watch J.J. Abrams Do The Twizzler Challenge With Chewbacca

22 April 2015 6:57 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There.s something called The Twizzler Challenge. It.s a lot like the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, but instead of promoting Als awareness, it seeks to raise money for New York Collaborates for Autism, and instead of pouring ice water over your head, you have to eat a Twizzler with someone in the style of Lady and the Tramp. After Jimmy Kimmel did it with Rihanna on his late-night talk show . that lucky bastard . he challenged J.J. Abrams, but his was much more weird.  The Star Wars: The Force Awakens director completed the Als Ice Bucket Challenge back when it was a thing, so why not The Twizzler Challenge? In selecting his partner, he went for one of the most lovable, loyal, kind-hearted and popular Star Wars characters he knows: Chewbacca. It.s unclear if Peter Mayhew was the one in the suit or not, though I doubt it »

Britain's Got Talent: The good, the bad & the bizarre

18 April 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It was another crazy night on Britain's Got Talent, with more acts hoping to impress the judges and make it through to the next round of the competition. As always, some were more successful than others. Read on for the good, the bad and the bizarre from tonight's show!

The Good

Jesse Jane McParland - 9, Northern Ireland

Talent: Martial arts

Tell us more: We're a little bit in love with adorable Jesse Jane. The little firecracker - a "dinky little thing" as Alesha described her - came across like butter wouldn't melt when she first stood on stage... and then blew the judges away with a spectacular, back-flipping, sword-waving martial arts performance, complete with a terrifying face. "Well done!" Ant called at her, murmuring to us: "Best to keep on her good side." We'll agree with that one - Simon Cowell even suggested she could work as his security guard. »

Outrage Watch: Mumford & Sons unleash on Tidal

13 April 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the April 13, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Mumford & Sons want nothing to do with Tidal. In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the Grammy-winning rock band greeted the mention of Jay Z's much-ballyhooed new artist-owned streaming service -- which has the backing of such music superstars as Madonna, Beyonce, Jack White and Rihanna -- with "a series of loud fart sounds" before being slammed further by frontman Marcus Mumford, who told the website: “We wouldn’t have joined it anyway, even if they had asked. We don’t want to be tribal. ...A band of our size shouldn’t be complaining. And when they say it’s artist-owned, it’s owned by those rich, wealthy artists.” Or as guitarist Winston Marshall called them: "New school fucking plutocrats.” Wait, is that a compliment? »

Watch Mumford & Sons Electrify 'SNL' With 'Wilder Mind' Songs

12 April 2015 10:24 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Mumford & Sons recently announced that they'd plug in their guitars for their upcoming LP Wilder Mind, and the folk band-turned-arena rockers brought their new electric sound to Saturday Night Live with a pair of new album singles, "The Wolf" and "Believe." From the opening moments after host Taraji P. Henson's introduction, it was immediately clear this wasn't the Mumfords of Babel, as the band's trademark banjos and accordions were replaced by the loud squeal of distortion and feedback.

American Idol Recap: No Judgment

8 April 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’ve been recapping American Idol since Carrie Underwood was a humble farm girl who may or may not have been able to afford Almay — let alone be the face of its national advertising campaign.

And throughout that time, the show’s judging panel has been my go-to source for mockery, outrage and befuddlement — as well as an assortment of all-important conspiracy theories.

Rihanna‘s new song “American Oxygen” debuted on Jay Z’s streaming service Tidal this week, following a performance of the single at the March Madness Music Festival in Indianapolis on Saturday. The song calls the younger generation the “new America,” who “sweat for a nickel and a dime” and “turn it into an empire.” Later in the performance, the singer took on Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which in its original language would allow business owners to refuse service to anyone on the basis that doing so is exercising their right to religious freedom.
