Shawn Stockman Cool With 'Despacito' Tying Boyz II Men Record

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_v22qc7zv"]] Boyz II Men crooner Shawn Stockman knows you can't stay on top forever so he's got no hard feelings sharing the all-time record for most weeks at number one on the Billboard 100 with "Despacito." The 16-week record was previously held by the 1995 Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey duet "One Sweet Day", but "Despacito" just tied the record.

‘End of the Road’ is Just the Beginning

Short of the DayAn animated fable.

The best stories are elliptical, their ends are new beginnings. This is certainly true of today’s Short selection, End of the Road, an animated film from Bri Meyer in which a motorist traveling through the desert picks up another at the side of the road at the scene of a very bad car accident. The traveler doesn’t seem hurt, but as he won’t speak, it’s tough to tell. Until it isn’t.

Meyer facilitated every single aspect of this film herself, from the writing to the animation to the editing, and as such it’s a very aesthetically cohesive short with every element informing the others. It’s a simple story with a heady conclusion and in its brevity there’s a chilling elegance that make End of the Road far more resonant than its runtime might suggest.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: It’s the End of the Road for Deimos

Days of Our Lives isn’t hesitating to bring the shock value for the weekend. It looks like Deimos has done precisely what we thought he’d do, and he’s gone right off the deep end without any hope of getting his act together. He’s a bad guy through and through, and he’s going to cause some serious drama and then he’s going to become the drama. He’s got Chad and Gabi at his mercy, starving to death slowly but surely. There’s very little hope either of them will live at this moment, and Deimos doesn’t seem to care in the least.

Boyz II Men and James Corden Sing-Recap Super Bowl 50 to ‘End of the Road’
We've come to the end of yet another Super Bowl. There were some hot sad faces, some gaffes, some singing, some brilliantly played financial moves, and some sports. James Corden had the occasion to close out CBS's big night on The Late Late Show, and he brought out some of the best closers in the romance business: Boyz II Men. They sing-recap all the sports that happened last night, most appropriately, to "End of the Road," your favorite graduation song since 1991. Long live the '90s.

Strictly Come Dancing 2015: week 12 – as it happened

Semi-finals time: there’s five couples left but only four places in the final next week…

7.59pm GMT

So that’s it for the semi-final - all that remains is for us to reconvene here at 6.35pm next Saturday for the Grand Final, where we’ll crack through two shows in one night and have a final marathon liveblog party. There’ll also be a bumper Strictly Come Bingo, so prepare for some self-mulling.

In the meantime, what’s your prediction for this year’s glitterball champion? For me it’s a toss-up between Jay and Aliona and Georgia and Giovanni, but I think Jay still has more to give and might edge the win. If you swing by @heidistephens on Twitter we’ll do a highly unscientific survey, or pop your thoughts in the comment box below – who will be getting your vote next week? Thank you all for

The X Factor 2015: week two – as it happened

It was Reinvention Week, and nobody was good. But who went home? Stuart Heritage found out.

8.59pm GMT

And with that, we say goodbye to Kiera and Seann with sincere gratitude, because their departure means that X Factor will only be one hour and 45 minutes long next week. But Oh No Sad News: I won’t be here for it. I’m away next Saturday, which means that this liveblog will be handled by someone equally capable. I think the plan is for me to retake the reigns for Sunday’s results show, but I’ve forgotten to check with anyone. Oh well, you’ll cope either way.

Thanks for reading if you read it, thanks for commenting if you commented. I’m off to surround myself with creepy cult members who’ll sit around me in silence as I play awful songs on the ukulele. Blardigan!

John Hancock's 'The Looking Glass' is Coming to Theaters Via First Run Features

Dorothy Tristan wrote and stars in the latest film from Academy Award® nominated director John Hancock,"The Looking Glass," set to open in New York at the Cinema Village, and in Los Angeles at the Fine Arts on October 23, 2015.

“I was very moved by the film. Dorothy gives an extremely touching performance, one that is definitely worthy of an Academy Award nomination,” said film critic Kathleen Carroll.

The official synopsis reads: "After losing her mother, troubled 13-year-old Julie must go to Indiana to live with her grandmother, Karen. Karen, a former star of stage and screen, now facing the end of her life, wants desperately to connect with her granddaughter in a meaningful way and pass on all she knows before it's too late. But the two of them—each stubborn in her own way—butt heads at every turn. Soon, Karen makes a remarkable discovery: Julie’s powerful, unique singing voice. Will the sudden discovery of Julie’s talent be enough to bring the two together and allow Karen to pass on her legacy? This beautifully shot film shows a tenderness in its treatment of family matters such as depression and low self-esteem. In watching the story unfold, the watcher is touched at the beauty and sadness of the rebellious young girl. Our hopes for her finding herself and allowing her voice to be shared with the world engages as the movie unfolds. This is the sort of film families with pre-teen and teen girls and boys would enjoy together. Then one talks of 'family entertainment,' this is the film that fits for a pleasurable movie day"

Married for forty years, "The Looking Glass" finds Dorothy Tristan and John Hancock collaborating for the seventh time. Since 1994, when their house was destroyed in the Malibu fire, they’ve been living and working in La Porte County, Indiana, and turning that little corner of the Midwest into a filmmaking hub.

Dorothy appeared in the director's “California Dreaming” and wrote “Steal the Sky,” “Weeds,” “A Piece of Eden” and “Suspended Animation.” She also did the final polish on Hancock's Christmas classic, “Prancer.” Tristan began her acting career in theatre, playing Charlotte Corday in the national touring production of “Marat/Sade.” She was Helena in “Midsummer Night’s Dream” and Lady Macduff in “Macbeth” at Stratford, Connecticut. She played Blanche Dubois opposite Jon Voight in “Streetcar Named Desire.” She had leading or supporting roles in a number of major motion pictures including “Klute,” “Man on a Swing,” and Aram Avakian’s “End of the Road” with James Earl Jones and Stacy Keach.

Hancock’s feature film credits include “Bang The Drum Slowly,” “California Dreaming,” “Let’s Scare Jessica to Death,” “Baby Blue Marine,” “Weeds,’ and the Christmas classic “Prancer,” starring Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, Abe Vigoda and Rebecca Harrell, which he shot "The Looking Glass" on his family’s fruit farm in Laporte County. His current production, , brings him home again, physically and emotionally. He says he “tried to catch the sense of returning to this place where you grew up, and falling in love with what you were not truly able to see before.

The story hits close to home for Hancock and Tristan. “Dorothy and I have reached a point in our lives where we’ve thought a lot about what we’ve accomplished, and what kind of legacy we hope to leave behind once we’re no longer here,” says Hancock, 76.

“You always hope you’ve had some type of impact on people, that what you did with your life meant something to people. That’s what this story is about: reaching out to those closest to you and imparting on them all your knowledge, all your life lessons so a part of you lives on.

“You’re preparing the next generation for greatness. That’s true not just for the characters in the film, but for Dorothy and me, that maybe we can inspire a new generation of filmmakers to create movies that mean something to people.”

Top 5 TV: Trevor Noah's 'Daily Show,' Miley's 'SNL' Song of the Summer
We'd waited months, debated Twitter fouls and argued over the too-much-too-soon of it all — finally, last week, we got a taste of what a Trevor Noah-led Daily Show would actually be like. The South African comedian had the tall task of replacing Jon Stewart, who over a decade ago turned the politically savvy late-night show into a nightly ritual for many Americans (and more recently, a reliable source for "so-and-so destroys such-and-such" articles on the Internet). The first few nights mostly inspired a lot "he seems unflappable" comments — and

Fat City

John Huston sets the bar for director-driven quality filmmaking of the early 1970s. Stacy Keach is a punchy boxing bum who teams up with the ambitious newcomer Jeff Bridges; the glowing discovery is the amazing Susan Tyrell, film history's most convincingly caustic floozy-alcoholic, bar none. Her voice can peel paint, but we love her dearly.

Justin Bieber Covers ‘I’ll Make Love to You,’ Humps the Floor, Makes You Wish You Were the Floor
Justin Bieber may be that bratty 21-year-old you love to hate, but, as his carpool karaoke with James Corden demonstrated, he can be quite the charmer if you look past his antics. He's also such a Boyz II Men stan. Back in 2011, he somehow convinced the R&B OGs to appear on his holiday album, featured on the song "Fa La La" (they even performed it on Dancing With the Stars). It didn't entirely work, but that was just a taste of the Biebs' love affair with Boyz II Men. With Corden, he sang "End of the Road," and over the weekend, he did an impromptu jazz cover of "I'll Make Love to You" at the W Hotel in Hollywood. Full band and everything! There's also some obligatory floor-humping, in case you weren't already swooning (or cringing, depending on your Biebs tolerance). Bring on the Boyz II Men album.

My First R-Rated Movie

My First R-rated Movie Or…

How I Became The 007 Of Covert Forbidden Film Viewing

By Alex Simon

For those of us who grew up in the suburbs in the pre-home video, pre-cable TV and pre-Netflix coupons 1970s and early ‘80s, there were few dangerous pleasures as heady as sneaking into an R-rated movie at the local multiplex. The multiplex cinema was a ‘70s phenomenon that made regulating children’s viewing habits infinitely more difficult than the old days of stand-alone, single screen theaters. Ironically, the new freedom that filmmakers enjoyed with the advent of the MPAA rating system in late 1968 was almost in perfect synch with the rise of multi-screen cinemas. Some things do happen for a reason.

You never forget your first...

My first R-rated film was during Thanksgiving of 1976. We were visiting my dad’s family in Birmingham, Alabama and the men adjourned after dinner to go see Two Minute Warning,
