It’s hard to say anything too harsh about an American Idol finalist immediately after experiencing his/her “Hometown Visit” package.
Misty-eyed mamas. Weeping dads. The contestants themselves embracing Fox affiliate meteorologists, kissing schoolkids and choking back their emotions when they realize they’re officially stars (or something pretty damn close).

Lucky for me, Wednesday’s Top 4 performance night — featuring one painful elimination — was (despite the absence of Quentin Alexander and Joey Cook) about as solid a night of performances as we’ve had in Season 14… no »
When you think Taylor Swift... Jason Alexander hopes you think of him! TMZ caught up with the Seinfeld star after a fundraiser at the El Rey theater in L.A. this week and, upon hearing that Alexander had sung a little Swift music inside, they asked if he was a fan. "Not only am I a Swift fan," the chatty actor revealed, "I put her in her first video." It turns out that Alexander directed the 2007 Cma Award-wining music video for Brad Paisley's tune "Online," and he picked a then-aspiring country star named Taylor Swift and a recent American Idol contestant named Kellie Pickler to be backup dancers. The video was also quite the Seinfeld family affair, also »
Get ready for a Taylor Swift takeover! The singer started the world tour for her 1989 album on Monday which means that for the next seven months (at least!) there's going to be a plethora of stories about what ol' Swifty is doing, saying, singing and, obviously, dancing. There are also going to be a whole lot of people jumping on the T. Swift bandwagon. What better time to start soaking in all things Taylor than when you literally cannot avoid news about her? We're going to sit back with a bowl of popcorn and watch the former haters roll in. But there are also a large number of people that have been following—and, more importantly, taking after—the star since day »
Taylor Swift is on tour, y'all, and her on-stage style is more than on point. The singer's 1989 World Tour kicked off on May 4, and we gave you some inside scoop on what special guests, songs and surprises to anticipate while you're getting your "Shake It Off" on. But we're also interested in her sexy (and leggy, naturally) performance looks, which is why we've rounded up some of the best from her big opening night in Tokyo on Monday. First up, we spotted a flirty black crop top and purple mini ensemble that gives Taylor a leg up on the tour costume competition. All black er'thang is the theme of this look, which features an iridescent blazer and mega-short »

After spending more than three decades defining humor on late-night television, David Letterman will retire from the Late Show on May 20th. To say goodbye, Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells met with the comedic legend several times for the magazine's intimate and illuminating cover story (on newsstands this Friday) and found the 68-year-old to be characteristically witty and earnest, as well as ready for what lies ahead. Some of his famous guests – Tina Fey, Michael Keaton, Tom Brokaw – chime in, sharing their accounts of cracking through his famously tough exterior, »
Murder in Successville starts on BBC Three tonight, but even though we've seen the first episode, we'll be damned if we can describe it to you.
Is it a reality show? A comedy? An impressions show? A murder mystery? A prank show? Well, it's kind of all of those things at once - and that's what makes it pretty special indeed.
It's honestly hard to describe the series, but the basic idea is this - a celebrity sidekick teams up with the brilliantly awful Di Sleet (played by Tom Davis) to solve a murder mystery. But that's making it a little too simple, because what we didn't mention is that the celebrity taking part has no idea what they're getting themselves in for. And we didn't mention that the 'murder mystery' is taking place in the fictional town of Successville, populated by celebrities - or at least enjoyably terrible impressions of celebrities. »

Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour has officially begun. Everybody has been dealing with this news in their own way, some better than others. If there's a best response, though, it's that of Vance Joy, who uploaded a cover of "I Know Places" via YouTube on Tuesday. Swift soon gave this song an incredibly high stamp of approval, tweeting, "There have been so many amazing covers of 1989 songs... I'm going to be bold enough to say this one is my favorite." Bold! Well, actually one would hope for this reaction, considering Joy will open summer shows on the 1989 World Tour. Regardless, it's a stellar cover, so enjoy and then give it your own stamp. »

Taylor Swift owes Jason Alexander everything ... at least that's the way he feels because as it turns out he's not only a huge fan, he kinda put her on the map. Word is Jason did his best Tay Tay impersonation during a Karaoke fundraiser at L.A.'s El Rey Theatre -- and outside he revealed their little known connection. It's all courtesy of a Brad Paisley music vid Alexander directed back in 2007 ... when Taylor »

Celebrities can seem untouchable much of the time with their fancy houses, expensive cars, and extensive security detail, but when it comes to feelings, even they can't escape the occasional mean tweet from a cyberbully. And while we admire the times when they ignore haters completely, we also can't help but let out a collective "Yes!" when they call out those who think they can remain anonymous. Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Fka twigs, Jay Z, and Demi Lovato are just a few of our favorite stars who refuse to stand for digital drama, and their epic takedowns are becoming more frequent in an attempt to limit the hate that is spewed online every day.

Flowers are in the air hair, everyone. Selena Gomez took to the 2015 Met Gala red carpet with an eye-catching white orchid headpiece to complete her head-turning Vera Wang look, which featured a figure-hugging white dress with a sexy keyhole cut-out. The star paired her white-hot frock with diamond jewelry, but really, all eyes are on those flowers. This is Selena's second Met Gala ceremony, by the way—last year, she stunned in a slim-fitting, violet Diane von Furstenberg gown (that was apparently pretty flexible, considering the dance party she had with gal pal Taylor Swift at a post-gala shindig.) And Gomez isn't the only one with headwear we can't get enough of: Just check out Sarah »
Taylor Swift is used to getting mobbed by fans, but her latest incident in Tokyo got so crazy she delayed air travel! After touching down at Japan's Narita Airport Monday, the 25-year-old "Shake It Off" singer was greeted by dozens upon dozens of local fans. While trying to make her way through the terminal, the pop star pushed her way through the crowds as people took photos of asked for autographs. Swift shared a photo of the madness on Instagram with the caption, "A very low key arrival in Tokyo... #1989WorldTour." Despite all the chaos, the Grammy winner kept her cool and made it out of the airport without any added drama. But that's not all. The crowds of fans were so intense »
