'Mariah's World': Mariah Carey Recalls 'Great Moments' with James Packer as Bryan Tanaka’s ‘Crush’ Is Revealed

'Mariah's World': Mariah Carey Recalls 'Great Moments' with James Packer as Bryan Tanaka’s ‘Crush’ Is Revealed
In Mariah's world -- her literal world, which also obviously serves as legendary fodder for the aptly titled eight-part E! docu-series Mariah's World -- if there's no Apple TV, there's no show. (It makes you wonder: How did the diva of all divas perform before digital media players?)

But in the grand scheme of Mariah Carey's outsized life, which we're privy to in this "don't call it a reality series" circus of a show that actually does feature her ex-fiance James Packer (and new admirer Bryan Tanaka), it's as vital as the oxygen she breathes and the fifth octave she hits. According to Molly, a past pet poop scooper-turned-new Mariah assistant, without it, "she can't sleep," which means, "she can’t perform. … If it’s not there, everything else falls apart."

"It's the most important thing for Ms. Mc," Molly reveals in earnest.

Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye Own Subdued 2016 MTV Video Music Awards

Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye Own Subdued 2016 MTV Video Music Awards
Beyoncé, Rihanna and Kanye West owned the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, their collective presence breathing life into a grandiose, nearly three-hour show that managed to feel as scattershot as it was scripted.

Rihanna opened the show with a hot pink flash, blazing through four of her biggest dance hits: "Don't Stop the Music," "Only Girl in the World," We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been." The pop star would perform three more genre-specific medleys throughout the night, throwing an impromptu block party during a reggae and dancehall set that included "Rude Boy,

32 years ago today: Sean Connery returned to play Bond in ‘Never Say Never Again’

32 years ago today: Sean Connery returned to play Bond in ‘Never Say Never Again’
When Sean Connery stepped down from the role of 007 after 1971’s “Diamonds Are Forever,” he said he would “never again” play James Bond. Well, he hasn’t played the spy in a canon Bond film since “Diamonds,” but he did return to the role for 1983’s “Never Say Never Again,” which was released in theaters 32 years ago today. The film is not considered part of the canon of the Bond franchise since it wasn’t made by Eon Productions. It was released a mere four months after the canon film “Octopussy," starring Roger Moore — a situation that the media dubbed the “Battle of the Bonds.” Other notable October 7 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: “The Frank Sinatra Show” premiered on CBS. The musical variety show lasted two seasons. • 1955: Allen Ginsberg read his poem “Howl” for the first time, at the Six Gallery in San Francisco. • 1960: Stanley Kubrick’s “Spartacus” opened in theaters.

Forever Marilyn Collection – Blu-ray Review

  • HeyUGuys
Marking the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood legend’s passing, the Forever Marilyn Collection is a four disc set showcasing some of the most treasured cinematic moments of Marilyn Monroe’s career with Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Seven Year Itch, and Some Like It Hot.

From some of Monroe’s earlier films playing the iconic sex symbol that she was known for, to the film where she broke out of her limitations and began showing a stronger talent that she fought to be recognised, this collection really captures the beauty of a star who will forever be remembered.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

Directed by Howard Hawks, the collection opens with Gentlemen Prefer Blondes which follows best friends Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw (Monroe and Jane Russell) as two showgirls who set a course for love on board a luxury liner sailing to France. Pursued by a

Michael Jackson is Top-Earning Dead Celebrity of 2011

Michael Jackson passed away back in 2009, but the entertainer still topped the list of highest-earning dead celebrities in 2011, taking in $170 million. Jackson topped the list back in 2010 as well, but was able to bring in a whipping $275 million in licensing and sales revenue. Also retaining his spot from the previous list is Elvis Presley. The singer landed in second place with $55 million, mostly thanks to the recent Cirque Du Soleil show Viva Elvis. New additions to the list include Elizabeth Taylor, who died back in March at the age of 79. She was able to tie John Lennon for 5th place with $12 million. Taylor's successful fragrance, White Diamonds, count for the bulk of her profits. And while Marilyn Monroe has been gone for 51 years, it is only now that she ended up making the list, taking third place with $27 million, mostly thanks to the new "My Week With Marilyn" movie.

Notebook Soundtrack Mixes: "Hyper Sleep"

  • MUBI
Welcome to the first Notebook Soundtrack Mix—Hyper Sleep! A word about the mix: There's no thematic thread through this collection, it's a variety of intriguing music. In making soundtrack mixes, I'm drawn to the subjective qualities of association and meaning that arise from experiencing the musical narratives that result from transitions and combinations of tracks in succession. Though there are several favorite films, Seijun Suzuki's Branded to Kill, for one, individual pieces are chosen simply for the music. I haven't seen some of the films. Robert Drasnin, Vladimir Cosma and Antoine Duhamel are represented with curious French T.V. work, rather than with some of their more well known output (The Kremlin Letter, Diva and Pierrot le fou, respectively.) Maybe this is the first of a series…I have several ideas for themed mixes, but wanted to start this way, including work that reflects jazz, classical, experimental and pop influences.

Two and a Half Men Review: "Dead from the Waist Down"

  • TVfanatic
If you're Charlie Harper, there's just one consequence of going through a plate glass window: You get back together with your ridiculously hot girlfriend, as played by Jenny McCarthy.

Just like for Charlie Sheen in real life, no matter what this guy does, nothing sticks.  It's good to be Charlie.  Really good.  Just see the above picture.

Meanwhile, it's far less good to be Alan.  While the poor guy has always looked bad next to his brother - and, no, it's not just genetics and barber school haircuts - he looks particularly bad when Charlie is dating Courtney.

Limos? Charity events? Diamonds? How is a crappy chiropractor with child support and alimony payments supposed to compete?  By turning to crime, and thus, turning this potentially mediocre "Dead from the Waist Down" into something much funnier.

Once Alan stole the diamond earrings from Judith, the episode really kicked in.  While Chuck Lorre

Top Ten Tuesday: Magnificent Musicals

In honor of the opening of the film Burlesque, starring Cher, Christina Aguilera and Stanley Tucci, the Movie Geeks are presenting what we feel are the best motion picture musicals.

Honorable Mention: Mary Poppins

“Practically Perfect in Every Way”, this is how the incomparably magical nanny Mary Poppins describes herself with nary a boastful smirk on a revealing tape measure in the still-charming 1964 Disney classic musical set in post-Victorian London circa 1910. Mary Poppins is the first movie I can remember seeing in a theater as a child I still feel genuine warmth about this movie as an adult. Such was the impact of Julie Andrews in her big screen debut, as she epitomizes the title character with equal quantities of starch and sugar. There are so many delightful scenes in Mary Poppins that it’s hard to choose which to highlight, though one of the best ones has to be

“Star Wars,” Indiana Jones and Marilyn Monroe part of massive Hollywood auction

Hollywoodnews.com: We place a lot of emphasis on modern Hollywood. Which Jonas brother is cutest? Who is Paris Hilton dating? What did Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and the “Twilight” cast eat for lunch yesterday. But it’s important that we remember Hollywood’s past every now and again.

With that in mind, Profile’s In History will be conducting a massive online auction of vintage Hollywood memorabilia, and one of the items on the block is Marilyn Monroe’s iconic pink satin gown from the “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” sequence in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” The auction will be held June 10-12.

The gown was worn by the late bombshell in her role of Lorelei Lee. It was later used (or, a replica, at least) by Madonna in her “Material Girl” video. The dress is estimated to sell for between $150,000 and $250,000.

That’s not the only item of note in the auction,
