Barack Obama Turns 55: Celebrate With His Best Pop Culture Moments

4 August 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

He's slow jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon. He's dropped the mic at the White House Correspondents Dinner. He's even gotten coffee with Jerry Seinfeld. But today, President Barack Obama turns 55!  And if one things for sure from looking back at the current Leader of the Free World's two-term presidency, he's got a handle on pop culture. In fact, Potus became the first sitting president to appear on a late-night talk show with his 2009 visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. From that moment on, we knew Obama was far more than just our wanna-be hip dad—his one-liners and zingers actually land (at least most of the time).  So in honor of the president's milestone »

Taylor Swift and Kanye West's Rocky History: A Timeline

28 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's no secret Taylor Swift and Kanye West haven't had the steadiest of relationships through the years. The pair's bad blood first became news when the rapper ambushed Swift's acceptance speech for Video of the Year at the 2009 MTV VMAs - which he later apologized for. But after years of tension and a long-awaited reconciliation, Swift and West are back to where they started, following the rapper's February release of "Famous" off his The Life of Pablo album (which made jabs at the "New Romantics" crooner) and wife Kim Kardashian West's recent claims that Swift knew of West's plans to release the track. »

Hollywood Conservatives in the Shadows Stumping for Trump

7 June 2016 2:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Despite the entertainment industry’s reputation for liberalism, not everyone in Hollywood sporting one of those “I Voted” stickers (written in half a dozen languages) cast their lot with Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders during Tuesday’s California primary. Many more than will admit — probably the ones on film and TV sets who remain silent as others gleefully bash Republicans — voted for Donald Trump. “It’s D-Day in California, and I voted for Trump,” says Dave Berg, who, as a co-producer on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno for several years, booked Trump as a guest more than

Three eras of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” will be celebrated in June at the Great American Comedy Festival in Johnny Carson’s hometown of Norfolk, Neb.

A panel will be held at the Johnny Carson Theatre on June 18 featuring producers from three different stages of the late-night show’s seven decades.

Taylor Swift and Kanye West's Rocky History: A Timeline

12 February 2016 10:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Staying true to his typical outlandish behavior, Kanye West launched his long-awaited album, The Life of Pablo - formerly known as Swish and most recently Waves - in N.Y.C. on Thursday by hosting a listening party/fashion show showcasing his Yeezy Season 3 collection. And while the event delivered its anticipated shock value - not including the fact that the rapper designed the Kardashian clan's wardrobe himself - nothing quite trumped his dig at Taylor Swift on his song "Famous." "For all my Southside n----s who will know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, »

Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

8 February 2016 11:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

Awards Flashback! See 19-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio Contend for a Golden Globe

7 January 2016 6:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In 1993, Leonardo DiCaprio was a handsome teenager with only two feature films under his belt - and he was already gunning for Oscar and Golden Globe success. Twenty-three years later, DiCaprio is heaping praise for his turn as 1800s frontiersman Hugh Glass in The Revenant and is up for his eleventh Golden Globe nomination at Sunday's award ceremony. But it was the 1993 drama What's Eating Gilbert Grape, wherein DiCaprio portrayed a mentally challenged Iowan, that gave the now-41-year-old his first taste of stardom and life on the awards circuit. In a 1994 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, »

New Pee-wee Herman Movie to Premiere at SXSW

7 January 2016 1:20 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In 1999, comedian Paul Reubens went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and announced that he was working on a new movie for his manic signature character, Pee-wee Herman. Now, just 17 short years later, a new film featuring his signature character — Pee-wee Herman's Big Holiday — will have its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival this March.

Originally created as a sketch-comedy character by Reubens in the late Seventies, Pee-wee Herman became a bona fide cult sensation thanks to Tim Burton's 1985 film, Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Reubens then took his alter ego to the small screen, »
