Christina Aguilera became a viral hit this week thanks to her spot-on impression of Britney Spears (she also does a fantastic Samantha from Sex and the City, by the way). That said, Christina isn't the only star with a talent for impersonations - Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Spacey, and Matt Damon have all showed off their skills in the past. Take a look at all the best impressions of celebrities, by celebrities. Source: NBC »
Conservative groups are up in arms, but the show – in which people have sex in a box – is about as titillating as a birds and the bees talk from your great-aunt
The funny thing about modern American culture is that it is simultaneously obsessed with sex and completely disparaging of it. Because of that, it makes total sense that WEtv is premiering a Us version of Sex Box, a show where couples have actual sex in an actual box on your actual TV. While this is happening, does one have to refer to one’s television set as a sex box or does boob tube suffice?
Sex Box was originally a British show that aired in 2013 on Channel 4 and became a cause celebre in the country. Many curious people tuned in and plenty of detractors got their hackles up, but once everyone realized that the sex in the box »

If you haven’t read The Sculptor, stop reading this and go get yourself a copy immediately,
Need more persuasion? Okay, but you’re missing out on valuable time that could be spent reading this awesome book. I’ve been a fan of Scott’s since Zot because it was funny and human and had a villain named Art Deco. More people became fans when he published the brilliant Understanding Comics. There is no one who uses the graphic story medium to better effect than Scott McCloud.
The Sculptor showcases McCloud’s mastery of technique. His use of color is impeccable. The book is black and white with blue tones, giving the different scenes a variety of moods and weights. The way he uses overlapping word balloons reminds me of an Altman movie. The panel arrangements speed up time and slow it down, depending on the needs of the character. »

Christina Aguilera proved that she's a master of impressions when she channeled Britney Spears during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon this week - it's worth nothing, though, that Aguilera gave us a glimpse of her talent when she did a spot-on Samantha Jones impersonation back in 2004. When the singer hosted Saturday Night Live over a decade ago, she - along with Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Rachel Dratch - did a sketch spoofing the series finale of Sex and the City. Aguilera completely killed it with her impression of the sex-obsessed Samantha Jones (played on the show by Kim Catrall), and it remains one of the most memorable celebrity performances on SNL in recent history. You'll cackle at spoofed lines from the show like, "My brood of broads was broadly brooding," and "He said I wore too much Moscow-a!" Christina even reprised her classic lines from »
Looks like Britney Spears isn’t the only impression Christina Aguilera has mastered! During an appearance on "Late Show" on Wednesday, "The Voice" coach brought back a "Sex and the City" bit she first did while hosting "Saturday Night Live" back in 2004. "You did an incredible Kim Cattrall in Sex and the City," host Seth Meyers. "It was one that, at the table, I would call a gasp moment, where everybody's like, 'Oh, [expletive]!" "It was fun," Xtina replied with a laugh. "I was obsessed with that show at the time...Kim was always talking like this [changes her voice]—and the big line of that [SNL] skit, like her big secret coming out was, 'I'm a dude!'"

After blowing everyone away with her Britney Spears impression on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week, Christina Aguilera stopped by to chat with Seth Meyers and treated him to another spot-on impression. Years ago when Aguilera hosted Saturday Night Live, she played Samantha from Sex and the City, and Meyers requested an encore. She complied, and guess what? She's still got it. Take a look! »
Celebrity impressions are clearly Christina Aguilera's thing.
After recently shocking viewers with her spot-on Britney Spears impression on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 34-year-old The Voice judge is at it again, this time revisiting her shockingly good Saturday Night Live impression of Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones.

"You did something I still remember, because when we were talking about SNL 40th, we were talking about great impressions that hosts did, and you did an incredible Kim Cattrall in Sex and the City," Meyers says, remembering the moment from more than a decade ago. "It was one that, at the table, I would call it a 'gasp' moment, where everyone's »
Christina Aguilera doesn't just do a mean Britney Spears impersonation—she's does a fabulous Samantha Jones, too! On Wednesday's Late Night With Seth Meyers, the Voice coach brought back a Sex and the City bit she first did while hosting Saturday Night Live back in 2004. "You did an incredible Kim Cattrall in Sex and the City," the late-night host gushed. "It was one that, at the table, I would call a gasp moment, where everybody's like, 'Oh, [expletive]!" "It was fun," said Christina with a laugh. "I was obsessed with that show at the time...Kim was always talking like this [changes her voice]—and the big line of that [SNL] skit, like her big »
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.
Will Smith has been breaking out his vintage rapping skills on the talk show circuit, and he busted out his classic hit "Summertime" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." It was, in a word, super 90s. By which we mean super awesome, partially because Will was wearing a white turtleneck for the entire performance.
Ice T swung by "The Tonight Show" to get some things off his chest in a game called Sound Off, and apparently he has a lot of feelings about "50 Shades of Grey." We believe his exact words were "boring, it could have been on Nickelodeon" and "how about Shade of Black, that's all you need."

Looking back over the awards season that ended with the Oscars Feb. 22, the red carpet was a little less luminous owing to the loss of two of fashion’s brightest lights: designers Oscar de la Renta and L’Wren Scott.
Between them, de la Renta, 82, who lost his almost-decade-long battle with cancer in October, and Scott, 49, who passed tragically in March, have dressed the evening’s biggest stars, including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Garner.
“You always knew there was going to be a great Oscar dress on the red carpet,” says Elizabeth Saltzman, stylist to Gwyneth Paltrow. “He was the epitome of class and style and taste. I adored him. It’s for his clothing I would save my money, knowing how timeless each piece is, how beautifully made, how worthy, and chic, and not trendy.”
De la Renta’s timelessness, says Eric Daman, »

In the wake of its staggering debut last weekend, it was expected the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie would see a steep drop-off in the second weekend as the fan base who flocked to its opening days made way for the more regular audience.
The steepness though is fairly staggering. 'Shades' dropped a whopping 73% from its $85.1 million debut, the movie taking $23.2 million which was still enough to keep it on top at the box-office. With a total of $130.1 million domestic so far, the drop-off means the film could struggle to hit $200 million, but global numbers are still shining with the worldwide haul at $410.6 million so far.
Several new releases opened this week, all low-budget but only two of them »

“Fifty Shades of Grey” didn’t show much endurance in its second weekend of release, with ticket sales for the erotic drama plunging a staggering 73% from its record-breaking $85.1 million debut.
The adaptation of E.L. James’ kinky bestseller about a billionaire and the college student he introduces to the world of Bdsm nabbed first place at the box office, but its $23.2 million in receipts represented a steep fall from its opening. Its hot-and-fast performance is like those of recent female-driven hits such as “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Sex and the City” and “Magic Mike,” all of which started strong before nosediving in their sophomore weekends.
“This was a movie that was a cultural event, and in order to be a part of it, the core constituency wanted to get out there and see it right away so they could talk about it,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. »

Universal’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” remains dominant at the U.S. box office — despite projections that see it plunging 70% to an estimated $25 million in its second weekend at 3,655 theaters.
The decline is not a surprise following the eye-popping $85 million opening weekend. The performance is similar to the second weekends of “Sex and the City” and “The Fault in Our Stars,” two female-driven films that dazzled during their opening weekends and then fell quickly.
“Fifty Shades” was tracking for an $8.5 million total on Friday. It will finish the weekend with a U.S. total of $132 million for its first 10 days — a highly profitable return for the studio, given its $40 million production cost.
Word of mouth on the adaptation of E.L. James’ bestselling phenomenon has been unimpressive, with a lackluster C+ CinemaScore.
Still, “Shades” left three new entries — CBS Films-Lionsgate’s “The Duff,” Disney’s inspirational sports drama “McFarland USA »

The second Sex and the City movie was released in 2010, with the HBO series previously having wrapped up in 2004.
Speaking to E!, Davis said: "I think we'd all like to do it again."
She then added more enthusiastically: "We want to do it!"
Davis has now explained the messages, saying: "Every once in a while something comes over us. I can't explain it. We get nostalgic. We start tweeting each other crazy things and then all of a sudden people are talking about it and we're like, 'Uh-oh'."
Jennifer Hudson also built up excitement last year when she said there were "talks" going on about a new sequel. »

It's time for Sarah Jessica Parker to get that third Sex and the City movie rolling, don't you think? Like right now! "I think we'd all like to do it again," Kristin Davis told me last night at Vanity Fair and Barneys New York's Oxfam dinner at Chateau Marmont. Oh? "We want to do it!" Davis said. She and Sjp started a frenzy back in October with teases that Sex and the City 3 could be in the works. Davis posted a photo of her and Parker with the message, "@Sjp Miss You Xoxoxo!! Parker replied, "@KristinDavis Me too you! Heard the news? X" And then left Davis us hanging with this: "@Sjp Yyyeessssss…But »
“Star Wars: Episode X — The Importance of Being Earnest”? This mash-up is the stuff of nerd dreams. Though Oscar Wilde and residents of the galaxy far, far away would appear to have little in common, he and Princess Leia might get along well. At least, that’s what the U.S.-Ireland Alliance posits by having Stephen Fry present an award to actress Carrie Fisher at the Alliance’s 10th annual Oscar Wilde Awards. Emcee J.J. Abrams will present to Stephen Colbert while Garrett Kelleher will do the honors for artist Colin Davidson.
Over her long career, Fisher has proved that she’s more than just her gold bikini. Her resume boasts a string of comedic turns post-“Star Wars,” including the wry Marie in “When Harry Met Sally” and April in “Hannah and Her Sisters.” Fisher demonstrated her chops through memorable guest stints on shows including “Sex and the City” and “30 Rock. »

Will audiences come back for seconds or will the thrill surrounding “Fifty Shades of Grey” evaporate by the time the erotic drama’s sophomore weekend rolls around?
That’s the big question facing studios and exhibitors as a trio of new releases try to shoulder in on Christian Grey’s action.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” outdid expectations last weekend, bowing to a record-breaking $85.1 million and setting a new benchmark for February debuts in the process. However, most analysts expect that the film will be similar to “Sex and the City” and “The Fault in Our Stars,” two female-driven films that sizzled during their opening weekends but cooled off quickly. Those pictures dropped between 60% and 70% in their follow-up weekends, so “Fifty Shades of Grey” should reasonably expect a similar tumble.
