Drake crashes fan's karaoke performance

29 December 2011 1:45 AM, PST | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

If you're ever performed "Born to Run" blitzed off your ass at a karaoke bar, you've probably  wondered what would happen if Bruce Springsteen himself cruised by in his limo, heard your rendition of his song from outside, and was so moved by your astounding vocal gymnastics that he felt compelled to wander in from off the streets and watch your performance, perhaps even joining you onstage to duet on the last few verses. This is exactly what happened to YouTube user "deefromca" Tuesday night, who started to sing the first few lines of a Rihanna song before she was joined onstage by rapper Drake for a performance of "What's My Name." Dalal ("Dee"), an international student from Kuwait and karaoke regular, showed up at Saddle Ranch on Sunset Boulevard after a friend who DJ'ed there texted [...] »

[flv custom_thumbnail="http://youtu.be/nDyJYb4NF2k1325118371265" width="600" height="450"]http://youtu.be/nDyJYb4NF2k[/flv] How cool is this video of Drake rapping his part in 'What's My Name' at the Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood? Drake proved once again he's one of the most carefree and fun guys in Hollywood last night when he climbed on stage and sang karaoke with a fan at Saddle Ranch Chop House on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. The 25-year-old Canadian rapper and singer rapped his verse from Rihanna's hit song, "What's My Name," and then politely climbed off the stage so the fan could have her moment to shine. We love it when celebrities do fun things like this, don't you? »

Chris Lilley Brings 'Angry Boys' To America

28 December 2011 9:51 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

One of Australia's most famous comics, Chris Lilley, is rapidly losing his anonymity in the United States. Best known for such cult mockumentaries as "We Can Be Heroes" and "Summer Heights High," Lilley now has a third series, "Angry Boys," which premieres Jan. 1 on HBO.

Not only does he write all his own material, but Lilley, 37, also takes on multiple characters -- male, female, old, young, Caucasian, Asian and Polynesian. In "Angry Boys," he plays identical twin brothers, a surfing champion, an American rapper, a Japanese mother, a manager of a skateboard professional and a tough juvenile center worker nicknamed Gran. A modern-day Peter Sellers, he offers biting commentary on contemporary life while making viewers laugh uncontrollably.

The self-effacing comic is down to earth and admittedly a little overwhelmed by all the recent attention. Lilley spoke to The Huffington Post about "Angry Boys," his U.S. fans and what it »

Tyler the Creator arrested at The Roxy? Reports of mayhem on the Boulevard [Updated]

23 December 2011 9:24 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

20-year-old rapper Tyler The Creator (aka Tyler Okonma) was arrested on Thursday night at The Roxy nightclub on Sunset Blvd. while his fans tweeted a minute-by-minute account of the action.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that Tyler got into an altercation with a sound engineer. Allegedly, the sound engineer turned off Tyler's microphone. Tyler then apparently crowd-surfed to the engineer and threw the microphone. He was then arrested and charged with assault.

Stiller & Meara producer Mike Rosenstein shot the Instagram photo above of Tyler being cuffed and put into the cruiser. Reports came in that officers used bean-bag guns to curb the crowd that gathered on the sidewalk.

"Tyler's mom yelling 'That's my baby,' as Jasper Dolphin's dad held her back, while cops cuffed Tyler. A top hip hop moment for me," tweeted Jensen Karp, later noting that the officers were video taping the crowd as helicopters arrived in riot response mode. »

Veteran Hollywood executive and publicist Scotty Dugan passed away on Thursday while on his way to the funeral of John Atterberry, a Death Row Records executive and film producer who was murdered in the shootings on Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street earlier this month.

According to The Wrap, Dugan, who was running press for Atterberry's upcoming Christian film "God's Country," fell ill while waiting for a Los Angeles Country Metropolitan Transit Authority train. He was taken to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank and pronounced dead at the facility. Dugan was 52-years-old.

Jennifer Gotzon, his client and friend, said that she suspects a heart attack or brain aneurysm was to blame for his death. Gotzon told The Hollywood Reporter that he grabbed for his head before passing out.

Boasting a career in show business dating back to the 80s, Dugan worked as a reporter/editor, studio exec and public relations head. »

An Inspired Trailer For 250 Movies From 2011

15 December 2011 8:53 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

We're with the crowd here that Matt Shapiro's trailer Cinescape 2011 is one of the best, if not best movie mashup we've seen this year. Shapiro has managed to slice 250 of this year's movies into a coherent single piece, making one of the weakest years for original scripts look somehow inspired. As the Atlantic points out, Shapiro's artistry comes after some considerable practice. He made trailers for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. The full list of movies for this year's is here -- including the only non-2011 source, which intros the piece, "Sunset Boulevard" (1950).

Gary Oldman Takes On 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'`

9 December 2011 7:23 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

"Tinker Tailor Solider Spy" seems like the stuff of boyhood fantasies -- the type of movie that makes you want to buy a trench, peck away on a typewriter and maybe even take up smoking. At first glance, the plot appears just as sexy: a retired MI6 agent George Smiley, played by Gary Oldman, is brought back to uncover a Soviet mole within the Secret Intelligence Service, or the Circus.

Based on the seminal spy book by ex-British intelligence officer John Le Carré, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" became worldwide bestseller after release in 1974 and was viewed as Britain's attempt to process the world of espionage and The Cold War. A classic 1979 miniseries soon followed, starring Sir Alec Guinness as the bespectacled Smiley -- something that made Oldman initially wary.

"It's a new interpretation of him but I was fearful," Oldman said, while describing Guinness's Smiley as "more huggable." "So »

The Artist: the silent film they said no one wanted to see

8 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Friends laughed at Michel Hazanavicius when he wanted to make a silent movie. But Harvey Weinstein loved it – and bought it. Now there are Oscar rumours

'When I first told people about my idea for this movie, they just laughed at me," says Michel Hazanavicius. "Friends, actors, producers – they all laughed. They'd say, 'Ok, Ok, but what do you really want to do?'" The problem was that Hazanavicius wanted to make a silent movie, 70 years after talkies rendered silents commercially obsolete and aesthetically outré. True, there have been some avant garde silent film-makers (Canadian Guy Maddin, for instance), but Hazanavicius isn't of their temper. "I wanted to make a charming mainstream movie. But nobody thought the market was ready for it. Producers said: 'Nobody wants to see a movie like that.'"

But they do. Hazanavicius's unremittingly charming and inventive movie The Artist, about a 1920s Hollywood star eclipsed »

Claudia Cardinale: Fellini, Herzog and me

8 December 2011 1:37 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The luminous star of 8½ and The Leopard, Claudia Cardinale lit up the screen in the 1960s. She talks to Steve Rose about life as a muse, her 'man's voice' – and never going naked

Being in London is making Claudia Cardinale nostalgic. The Italian actor remembers shooting one of her first films here, in 1959: Upstairs and Downstairs, a forgotten domestic comedy. She met the Queen at the premiere of West Side Story in Leicester Square in 1962, and looked the more regal of the two. She came here to see one of Marlene Dietrich's last concerts, in 1973, with her friend and regular director Luchino Visconti. "In his room he kept a signed photo of Marlene Dietrich, in her costume. Fantastic!"

This time, she's here for the London Turkish film festival, which opened last month with a new film starring herself; but on a quiet afternoon in a Mayfair hotel, the »
