31 July 2015 10:01 AM, PDT
Lauryn Hill made a rare late-night TV appearance Thursday when she stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a show-stopping rendition of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good." Hill's version of the blues classic begins slowly and sultry before picking up its pace; by the three-minute mark, it's an all-out rave-up. For the impressive performance, Hill was backed by a string section, horns, three singers, a meaty rhythm section and blues guitarist Eric Gales, who wails on an upside-down righty Fender like Jimi Hendrix.
"Feeling Good" was among »

31 July 2015 6:33 AM, PDT
Game of Thrones will rage on for at least eight seasons, says HBO programming president Michael Lombardo – despite claims from showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss that they were only interested in creating seven.
"'Seven seasons and out' has never been the conversation," Lombardo said Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, according to the L.A. Times. "The question is how much beyond seven are we going to do. [Benioff and Weiss] feel like there's two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds. »

Nirvana fans will be able to hear a previously unreleased song that Kurt Cobain wrote when the documentary, Montage of Heck, gets a widespread theatrical re-release on August 7th. Filmmaker Brett Morgen mixed in the tune – without re-editing what people saw in the film's HBO broadcast – though he would not say where in the movie it would play in an interview with Billboard. "I don't want to get people out there bootlegging it on their cell phones," he said.

Donald Trump Can't Stop Calling Things 'Disgusting'
30 July 2015 9:40 AM, PDT
Donald Trump is nothing if not consistent, especially in his repudiation of all he believes is beneath him. It's a habit Jimmy Kimmel hilariously exploited on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night with a montage of the Republican presidential hopeful calling everything, "Disgusting."
The bit was inspired by recent accusations leveled at Trump by Elizabeth Beck, a lawyer who said the real estate mogul repeatedly called her disgusting after she requested a break during a deposition so that she could pump breast milk.
"That doesn't sound like the thoughtful, gentle, mild-mannered Trump I know, »

30 July 2015 8:22 AM, PDT
Johnny Rotten grabs the microphone and lurches forward, his pimply face grinning into the camera. Next to him, Steve Jones is miming (or mocking) guitar-hero moves, while Sid Vicious hunches over his bass, surly as ever. The grainy footage carbon-dates to the tail end of 1977, right before the band was about to embark on their notorious U.S. tour and then implode. It's Christmas Day in the Northern city of Huddersfield, and will turn out to be the penultimate U.K. performance for the seminal punk band. They launch into »
Jon Stewart Details Not-So Secret Meetings With Barack Obama
30 July 2015 6:37 AM, PDT
After much media speculation over news that Jon Stewart met with Barack Obama twice during his presidency, The Daily Show host came clean Wednesday night with all the juicy details: "I was brought through the secret White House tunnel entrance at Mount Rushmore," the host cracked. "It was a round table meeting with the President, Elvis — still alive — Minister Farrakhan and the Area 51 alien."
Clearly relishing the ridiculousness of his momentary place in the 24-hour cable news cycle, Stewart downplayed his visits with Obama, noting first and foremost, they weren't actually secret. »

30 July 2015 6:14 AM, PDT
The beef between Meek Mill and Drake might be the biggest (or second biggest) story in hip-hop now, but as Hannibal Buress proved on Wednesday night's Why, a pair of diss tracks, Twitter jabs and ghostwriting accusations haven't pushed the feud into the general consciousness. To get the true magnitude of the rap beef's reverberations, Buress traveled to the one Los Angeles neighborhood "that you go to talk about hip-hop": Beverly Hills.
During the man-on-the-street segment, Buress asked numerous Beverly Hills denizens, "Who is Meek Mill?" Only one person could identify the rapper, »

29 July 2015 11:16 AM, PDT
For his latest "man on the street" bit on Comedy Central series Why?, Hannibal Buress poked fun at PETA members protesting the use of animals in circuses. The comedian posed ludicrous – but hilarious – hypothetical questions and pointed out perceived flaws in the group's logic, all while maintaining his chill, unrattled exterior.
"Do you consider yourselves the Black Panthers of animal protesting?" he asks one member. "I would say it's the Civil Rights Movement for animals," she responds. "I think Martin Luther King was an inspiration, and if we could be »

With his final Daily Show on the horizon, Jon Stewart took time from Tuesday's episode to reveal some insider secrets – like whom he'd "marry, shag and kill" from group of friends Larry Wilmore, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert.
Stewart answers that riveting query during a segment called "Askhole," wherein Daily Show correspondents Hasan Minhaj and Jordan Klepper interrogate the host with fan questions and bully their boss like grizzled detectives. "Some things are best left unsaid," Stewart says of his shagging options. But he relents after they threaten him with an Arby's enema. »

"When this is over, I'm gonna kick your ass," the actor fired back. Host and guest channeled their inner frat boys as they raced to down Solo cups of beer and flip over the cups, all while wearing random poofy suits.
Fallon took an early lead in the contest, holding on for a victory – despite a strong surge from DeVito, whom Fallon »
