Prior to starting fourth grade, Suri went on a trip to Disneylan...

Ah, the wonderful country that is the United States of America – sigh? What better way to celebrate the great USA than through song? Music moves, and these 50 songs – one for each state – should ‘move’ you.

'Pitch Perfect 2' Tops This Week

5/21/2015 9:58am EDT
The 'Pitch Perfect 2' Soundtrack Is Aca-Awesome At No. 1
Who had an “Aca-awesome” week on the Billboard 200? That would be the original motion picture soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 2, which debuts at #1.

Lately, soundtracks have been on a roll on the albums chart, and Pitch Perfect 2 isn’t about to end the run.

Besides Pitch Perfect 2, the only other new release to enter the top 10 was Incubus’ EP, Trust Fall (Side A), which landed at #6 with a modest 40,000 units. With Incubus’ EP being the fi...

Will Fans Enjoy Jamie Foxx’s New Album?

Review: Jamie Foxx Keeps Things Sensual On ‘Hollywood’
How does one characterize Jamie Foxx? The best way to describe Foxx is as multitalented. He is one of few actors – an Academy Award winner by the way – who can convincingly play dramatic roles as well as comedic roles. Furthermore, Foxx is one of few actors who has nailed the ‘musician’ thing – he’s a classically trained pianist with golden pipes.

After a five-year hiatus between albums, Foxx returns with his most sensually driven lengthily titled album yet, Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses. Has the 47-year old Foxx lost his swag? Nope, not in the least – perhaps he overdoes the ‘sw...

Jamie Foxx Blasted For Bruce Jenner Jokes At iHeartRadio Awards
Jamie Foxx has been criticized for a few off-color jokes about Bruce Jenner, making fun of the former Olympian's gender identity issues and alleged plan to go through with a sex change.

The actor hosted Sunday Night's second annual iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles, and during his opening monologue his jabs at Jenner -- while Bruce's daughter Kylie was in the audience -- garnered very few laughs from the celebrities in the crowd (although the cameras went straight to Chris Brown, who appeared to find them very funny) and lots of shaming on Twitter afterward.

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names
Many celebrities have changed their names before they hit it big, and for many reasons. Let's take a look at some of the biggest stars who didn't take their birth name to Hollywood.

Katy Hudson didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson, so she took her mother's maiden name and became Katy Perry.

Oprah Winfrey's name is iconic, but it's not actually her real name. It's Orpha, after the biblical figure. However, so many people mispronounced her name while she was growing up that the mispronunciation stuck.

Barry Manilow was born Barry Alan Pincus. He took his mother's maiden name...
