Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have a few things in common: musical talent, the album they just made together, and their appearance on The Tonight Show last night, to name a few. But there are other areas where the two of them are very different. For example, when Jimmy Fallon brought up that one time Bennett took advice from a cab driver in New York, he then asked Gaga if she'd ever taken advice from a stranger. She had. Only she got her advice from an elderly stripper in Atlanta. As you do. »

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga recently waltzed through The Tonight Show, where they performed a swinging set of standards, "Cheek to Cheek" and "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," off their recent duets album, Cheek to Cheek.
After Gaga, who looked both glitzy and glittery, opened "Cheek to Cheek" like a love-lorn ballad, she and Bennett, who remained dapper and stoic during the performance, kicked up the Irving Berlin classic, trading lines before belting the last few verses together in harmony. "It Don't Mean a »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Is anyone else wondering how Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett started working together? We're right there with you. This unlikely duo hit up "The Tonight Show" for a quick performance, and then Lady Gaga explained how a stripper inspired her to get old school with her act. Priceless!
The Sony hack has taken a turn for the completely crazy, but David Letterman still has a sense of humor about the situation, and decided to read some hacked emails on "Late Show." There's an jingle, there are a few LOLs, and there are a bunch of completely hilarious (fake!) notes like "Nicholas Cage says the script's terrible and he's in. »

Because the Album of the Year Grammy honors the best achievements across all genres, it stands to reason that a contender in that race would always win its respective genre category, but that's not always the case. Will this year's Best Pop Vocal Album race end in another surprise? -Break- Artist collaborations dominate Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Usually, if at least one pop album is nominated for Album of the Year, it wins Best Pop Vocal Album. Consider past victors of this category like Justin Timberlake ("Justified," 2003), John Mayer ("Continuum," 2006), Amy Winehouse ("Back to Black," 2007), the Black Eyed Peas ("The E.N.D," 2009), and Lady Gaga ("The Fame Monster," 2010). All were nominated for Album of the Year. And two artists in the last decade have won both awards: Ray Charles ("Genius Loves Company," 2004) and Adele ("21," 2011). But there »

Yes, The Muppet Christmas Carol is wonderful, but children of the 80s might remember another classic Muppet special...
The Muppet Christmas Carol is wonderful. It’s perfectly pitched, sharp and witty, yet also genuinely moving. It’s genius lies in how seriously it takes the material. It lets the full horror and pathos of Dickens’ original tale fill the screen, letting the Muppets manoeuvre around it, instead of dominating, so it’s just as riveting as it is hilarious. But without wanting to get heretical here, it might not actually be the best holiday themed Muppet special. I’d argue that title actually falls to a criminally under-seen 1987 ABC television special, called A Muppet Family Christmas.
Adored by those who’ve seen it, it’s been mostly keep out of circulation due to a copyright mess. A mess that results mostly from it’s greatest selling point - that is the one big, »
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.
Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.
Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.
I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

The Beeb launches its very own Brits tonight, live from Earl’s Court – with Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Coldplay and Calvin Harris among those taking the stage. We’re following proceedings right here …
True, tonight was no reflection of what “we” have been listening to this year - no St Vincent, no Fka twigs, no Aphex Twin, Caribou, Beck, Run the Jewels or La Roux - and certainly it was miles from the billowy R&B and “sad rap” that have been on constant rotation in my house - but maybe the lesson from tonight is, it’s almost better to keep the two things separate.
Why would you even want to see Aphex or twigs chumming up with Evans or Cotton?
There are a few commenters below suggesting that what tonight lacked were memorable rock’n’roll moments, but you can’t manufacture those, and besides, »

Channel 4 takes aim at ‘painfully dull and manufactured’ pop stars with music video featuring singer with a prosthetic limb
Channel 4’s Proptotype music video – in pictures
Channel 4 is planning to hijack the final of ITV’s The X Factor with a music video featuring a singer with a prosthetic limb. The Lady Gaga-style promo, an edited version of which will air in one of the commercial breaks during Sunday’s final, stars singer and model Viktoria Modesta, a lower leg amputee, wearing a variety of prosthetics including an illuminated “bionic” limb and a knee-high black spike.
Channel 4 said it was a riposte to “painfully dull and manufactured” pop stars – likely to be seen as a reference to the Simon Cowell talent show – and offered an alternative to a world of “homogenised pop”.

While she hangs out with royalty in her spare time and is often referred to as Queen Bey, Beyoncé didn't reign supreme on Forbes's annual World's Highest Paid Musicians list. That honor goes to rapper, producer and Beats founder Dr. Dre. According to the magazine, Dr. Dre, 49, earned $620 million before taxes in 2014, mostly due to a deal with Apple in which he sold his Beats company for $3 billion. The sale added nicely to the $40 million he earned last year. Knowles, 33, who topped the Forbes Celebrity 100 list in June, came in just behind Dr. Dre, landing the second spot. She made »

Behold: Your top five picks for the absolute worst outfits of 2014! The most shocking aspect of this list is what's missing from it, with Miley Cyrus' dirty hippie ensemble bested by Cara Delevingne's pepperoni onesie. Not surprising? Lena Dunham's frothy pink Giambattista Valli gown, which may ultimately rank as one of the worst red carpet gowns of all time. Also topping our most unfortunate outfits of 2014 list is Katy Perry's curtains-turned-ball-gown Dolce & Gabbana design (think The Sound of Music). Madonna's awkward monochromatic ensemble held strong as well, and you know Lady Gaga's cotton ball couture look wasn't going down without a fight. But now the »
When it comes to making music, it's good to be these five artists.
Forbes has released its annual list of highest-earning musicians, and we're breaking down who made it into the top five this year!
This rock star brought in a reported $81 million last year thanks to his tour (and the fact that his music will never ever get old).
#4: Bon Jovi
These guys will forever be "Livin' on a Prayer" and we will be right there with them. They sang their way to the bank, making a total of $82 million this year. Between their Because We Can Tour and being awesome, all-around rock star stars, the number four spot seems quite fitting for them.

Music streaming service Slacker is reinventing itself, and its getting an assist from some top online video channels along the way. Slacker has enlisted Tyler Oakley, Nerdist, Rooster Teeth, and ComicBookGirl19 for a new feature, through which noteworthy individuals can curate their own musical playlists complete with their own musical commentary. Each featured channel features a selection of tracks chosen by the featured curator. On Oakley's channel, for example, he has picked out a handful of songs from artists like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Troye Sivan, and (you guessed it!) One Direction. The YouTube star gives a short introduction before the music begins, and he pops up intermittently throughout the playlist to tell you this thoughts and feelings about specific tracks. It all makes for a listening experience with welcomed and well-timed interruptions from a celebrity who's well versed in speaking directly to his audience about things which he's passionate. »

That's saying a lot considering the other distinguished guests in the room, which included fellow honorees Sting, Rev. Al Green, Lily Tomlin and ballerina Patricia McBride, the evening's host Stephen Colbert and President Barack Obama with his wife First Lady Michelle Obama.
