22 September 2012 4:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The guys in Green Day may be in their forties now, but singer Billie Joe Armstrong can still throw a teen-style tantrum. During the band's performance at Friday's iHeart Radio event in Las Vegas, Armstrong went into a lengthy, profanity-laced rant after they were give a "one-minute warning" from the tech guys backstage.  A few bars into the '90s classic "Basket Case," Armstrong stops the song and announces, "I'm going to play a f*cking new song. F*ck this sh*t. Gimme a f*cking break. One minute left. One minute f*cking left. You're going to give me one minute?" Armstrong added, "I've been around »

Emmy Nominations: People TV Critic's Take

22 September 2012 3:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow. Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying. It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of Fox's New Girl, on which she plays »

Green Day Frontman Has an Onstage Meltdown

22 September 2012 3:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Justin Bieber may not have been in attendance at the IHeartRadio music fest this weekend, but he still caught the wrath of one particularly disgruntled rocker. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong threw the "Baby" crooner's name into the mix when he went on a profanity-laden rant onstage after the band's set at the Las Vegas fest was cut short to give Usher and Rihanna more time to perform, according to Gawker.  Upon noticing a one-minute warning sign in the back of the arena, the musician went totally off, stopping halfway through the band's performance of "Basket Case," to flip off the camera and smash his guitar, among other things. "Oh, f--k this s--t. I'm »

22 September 2012 2:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Two days after getting arrested for possession of hashish in Texas, Fiona Apple seized the opportunity at her Houston concert to give her side of the story. The "Criminal" singer-songwriter's bus was stopped in the town of Sierra Blanca on Wednesday; police discovered the hash as well as a small amount of marijuana. Apple, 35, was then taken to Hudspeth County Jail, where she had a not-so-great experience. In a verbose, rambling monologue at her Houston concert on Friday, Apple -- appearing simultaneously amused and angered by the situation -- told the audience that she wanted to apologize to

Movie power rankings: 'The Master' takes down 'Captain America' and 'The Avengers'

22 September 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Love it or hate it, it's the movie that has everybody talking, even as the multiplexes get more and more crowded as the season moves on. Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" features at least two Oscar-worthy performances (Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and possibly Amy Adams) and some truly stunning visuals. Furthermore, the Scientology angle is less prominent than expected, which has surprised some critics and moviegoers. While it's off to a great start in wide release, it remains to be seen ho much the general public will embrace "The Master." Likewise, it will be interesting to see how the »

Alicia Keys Explains the Disappearance of the Video for ‘Put It in a Love Song’

22 September 2012 1:52 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Alicia Keys and Beyoncé fans have wondered for far too long why the music video for "Put It in a Love Song" — filmed back in 2010 in Brazil with a Carnival-esque theme — never popped up in their endless (and fruitless) YouTube searches. Speaking to Essence magazine, Alicia Keys finally explains that, "We had a ball shooting the video. It just so happens that the whole thing, for some reason or another, didn’t quite come together so we just decided to leave it." But leave it where? In Keys' mansion? At Beyoncé's palace? Maybe in some random music producer's file cabinet? At least we know they left it somewhere, so there's still hope. »

Friday Box Office Top Ten: Trouble With the Grosses, Lawrence Leads Weak Field

22 September 2012 1:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There's no getting around the truth: business continues to be bad. Although the top ten grossed a bit above last week's mediocre numbers, by this point most year's numbers are recovering with new, stronger releases upgrading performance. But compared to a year ago, grosses are down by a disastrous one third! Last year, three films grossed $5 milliion or more on Friday. This year, none did. The battle for #1 won't be resolved for sure until Monday, although the full weekend estimates will likely shift the top three. For their modestlevel of expense and ability to grow audiences in upcoming weeks, both "End of Watch" and "Trouble With the Curve"  show promise. But positive studio balance sheets won't make theater owners happy when they see a continuation of several weeks of box office slump that shows signs of getting worse, not better. 1.

22 September 2012 1:04 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Uh-oh! Modern Family funny lady Julie Bowen has already had an Emmys dress fashion emergency. "I busted the zipper already once," she told us at the Audi and Derek Lam party. "I was like, 'Reinforce it!'" Bowen is determined to wear her Monique Lhuillier gown tomorrow because it's a "bright color" and it makes her look "curvy" like a certain someone. "[I picked it] because it made me look like Sofia Vergara's distant, distant cousin," Bowen said. "It has a corset inside that honestly might fold my ribs on top of each other and give me a waist. I don't care. How will I sit down? We haven't addressed that. Don't care." Elisabeth Moss »

Joe Gorga Lashes Out During Explosive New Jersey Housewives Finale: Video

22 September 2012 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It wouldn't be a Posche fashion show without the drama, and in the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there's plenty of name-calling, finger-pointing and bleeping to go around. After last week's episode, during which a man appeared claiming to have employed Melissa Gorga as a stripper, everyone is all riled up. Was Teresa Giudice involved in setting up her sister-in-law? Joe Gorga seems to think so. But he's also steaming mad at Posche owner Kim D., who manages to insert herself in all the drama, too. "You're the scum of the Earth," Joe tells Kim D. »

Google’s Office to Basically Play Itself in Interns

22 September 2012 12:08 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Back in February, Vulture's Claude Brodesser-Akner reported that Wedding Crashers duo Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were reuniting in the forthcoming film Interns as a pair of newly jobless forty-somethings who decide to start fresh as — you guessed it — interns at a "Google-like" dotcom startup. Google took the hint and granted the movie's producers use of its Mountain View campus, which will serve as a set this week, complete with actual employees to double as extras. Let's just hope Vince and Owen aren't outshone by all the lavish Google amenities. »

Friday Report: Three Middling Movies Compete for First Place

22 September 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

House at the End of The Street, End of Watch and Trouble with the Curve were all in a heated race for first place on Friday, though none of them were very impressive. At least they all did better than Dredd, which is looking like a major misfire at this point.House at the End of the Street narrowly took the top spot on Friday with an estimated $4.64 million from 3,083 locations. That's noticeably higher than recent "House" horror movies Silent House ($2.66 million) and Dream House ($2.89 million), but still on the low end for horror movies in general. For example, that gross is a bit behind that of September 2010's Devil ($4.8 million), which was considered a disappointment at the time. The Jennifer Lawrence movie is on pace for between $12 and $13 million for the weekend.End of Watch wasn't far behind with an estimated $4.6 million from 2,730 theaters. That's about on par with »

‘Gangnam Style’ Is Now the Most Liked YouTube Video Ever

22 September 2012 10:36 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The South Korean rapper's horse dancing video has won over not just Ellen and Britney, but the entire YouTubing world. "Gangnam Style" now has nearly 2.4 million likes on YouTube, the most on the site and almost twice as many as Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" — which currently tops the clearly out-of-date "Most Liked" YouTube Charts. It even has nearly a million more likes than Lmfao's "Party Rock Anthem" (viewed 480 million times), despite being something of a rip-off of that fine piece of work.  »
