‘A Star Is Born’: The Songwriter Behind ‘Why Did You Do That?’ Weighs In on Lady Gaga’s Polarizing Pop Song

‘A Star Is Born’: The Songwriter Behind ‘Why Did You Do That?’ Weighs In on Lady Gaga’s Polarizing Pop Song
Ask anyone about the most polarizing song on the “A Star Is Born” original soundtrack and you’re bound to hear the same track listed over and over again: “Why Did You Do That?” The divisive song is performed by Lady Gaga’s Ally during her appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” and marks the character’s transition from singer-songwriter to full-blown pop star. The song’s narrative purpose in the film has become a point of contention, while the track’s opening line, “Why’d you come around here with an ass like that?,” has made it something of an instant classic.

“It’s getting a life of its own!” songwriter Diane Warren told The New York Times about the track, which she co-write with Gaga and others. “I have to take guilty credit for that [opening line]. I remember when we were working on it, I said, ‘Can we say that?

‘Black Monday': Showtime Drops Trailer for Stock-Market Crash Comedy on Date’s 31st Anniversary (Video)
Showtime released the first trailer for its new comedy “Black Monday” on the 31st anniversary of the worst Stock Market crash in Wall Street history.

The 1980s-set series stars Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall. The series takes viewers back to Oct. 19, 1987 – aka Black Monday. To this day, no one knows who “caused it” … until now. Per Showtime, “Black Monday” is the fictional story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.

In addition to starring, Cheadle will serve as executive producer alongside Caspe, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who will direct the pilot.

Blu-ray Review: House On Haunted Hill, a Fun Product of Its Time

The 1999 remake of William Castle’s (1959) House on Haunted Hill by William Malone was a very strange film, and not one I’d seen in a long time, possibly since its video store days. Going back, its quite “Nineties,” down to its techniques, ensemble cast, plucked eyebrows, and wardrobe. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s interesting to see how some things have aged and how some haven’t. Star Geoffrey Rush channeled original House on Haunted Hill headliner and horror movie icon Vincent Price quite well. The funny thing is, I learned that he was originally going for a John Waters vibe with the skinny mustache, but...

Baltimore Police Department Criticizes ‘SNL’ for ‘Inappropriate’ Cop Sketch in Open Letter to Lorne Michaels

Baltimore Police Department Criticizes ‘SNL’ for ‘Inappropriate’ Cop Sketch in Open Letter to Lorne Michaels
The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police criticized “Saturday Night Live” for its misrepresentation of the city’s police officers in a sketch that aired during the October 13 episode, hosted by Seth Meyers. The sketch, entitled “Traffic Stop,” featured Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and new cast member Ego Nwodim as cops who flirt with a male driver they’ve pulled over. Baltimore Pd member Lt. Gene S. Ryan sent the letter to “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels.

“We must take issue with the grossly inapt portrayal of our members during this particular sketch,” the letter states. “As you are most likely aware, the Baltimore Police Department is currently a very beleaguered agency in the throes of massive criticism and disrespect. Many of our members, especially our younger ones, are struggling with their choice of career and we are losing good and credible members daily. It is a difficult time in Baltimore and to portray our brave,

The Baltimore Pd Isn’t Happy With This ‘SNL’ Sketch: ‘Not Humor at All’ (Video)

The Baltimore Pd Isn’t Happy With This ‘SNL’ Sketch: ‘Not Humor at All’ (Video)
The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police was not laughing at Saturday’s “SNL” — or at least, not at its “Traffic Stop” sketch, which featured Leslie Jones, Ego Nwodim and Kate McKinnon as some thirsty Charm City cops. In the skit, the ladies pulled over a tipsy Seth Meyers and proceeded to flirt with him instead of administering a field sobriety test.

In an open letter to “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels, Lt. Gene S. Ryan called it a “distorted representation” of what his officers do when they pull over a drunk driver. Or ever, really.

“We must take issue with the grossly inapt portrayal of our members during this particular sketch,” he wrote. “As you are most likely aware, the Baltimore Police Department is currently a very beleaguered agency in the throes of massive criticism and disrespect.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Says She Never Considered Leaving ‘Veep’ Despite Cancer Diagnosis

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Says She Never Considered Leaving ‘Veep’ Despite Cancer Diagnosis
Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she never considered quitting HBO’s Veep after being diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer last year. “Oh, no,” Louis-Dreyfus tells the Washington Post in a candid interview. “I love making people laugh, and I love making people cry even, and I find the pursuit of a truthful performance to be deeply satisfying to my core.”

Still, the former Seinfeld star says, the illness and treatment proved more debilitating than she’d ever imagined. Production of the seventh and final season – set to premiere in spring of 2019 – was delayed.

“Originally, I had this idea, ‘Well, we’ll shoot in between my chemo treatments’…But I got really ill, so I couldn’t have ever shot anything during that period of time.”

The multiple-Emmy winning Louis-Dreyfus will receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor from the Kennedy Center this Sunday, and spoke to WaPo in advance of the honor.
