Stars Express Grief On Twitter Over Funk Pioneer Chuck Brown's Passing

May 17th, 2012 9:04am EDT
Chuck Brown
Funk pioneer Chuck Brown, 75, died yesterday after a long battle with pneumonia. The singer, nicknamed the Godfather of Go-Go, died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD, where he had been receiving treatment for the last month.

Brown helped define the go-go genre by fusing funk, soul and Latin sounds. His hit "Bustin' Loose," with his group the Soul Searchers, spent several weeks at the top of the R&B charts in 1979 and was later sampled in rapper Nelly's Grammy-winning track "Hot in Herre."

A documentary on the Washington, D.C., go-go scene appeared in 2002 and prominently featured...

10 Fun Facts About The Original '21 Jump Street'

March 15th, 2012 11:00am EDT
21 Jump Street Cast
As part of Hollywood's neverending pillaging of the TV landscape of my youth, the big-screen reboot of "21 Jump Street" hits theaters this Friday. Having been a huge fan of the show, I was opposed to the film from the get-go. However, after hearing that most (if not all) of the main cast members have cameos, and that the movie has very little in common with the series aside from the title and basic premise, I'm not so dead set against it. Besides, if it does well, there's a good chance that some network will start airing reruns of the original show, allowing me to rekindle my once-raging cr...

Sharon Osbourne has fired off a series of defensive tweets after Leah Remini implied the rock matriarch was to blame for the actress' dismissal from TV show "The Talk."

'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: Fan Favorite Bret Michaels Is Hired

Bret michaels
We came in with two big questions. Would Bret Michaels appear at the live finale? Who would be named “The Celebrity Apprentice?” Early on we got the first answer and as soon as we knew he would be in attendance, it wasn’t hard to guess that Bret Michaels would eventually win the coveted title.

The first hour of the episode was devoted to seeing Bret and runner-up Holly Robinson Peete complete their final task. However, since the results of this challenge were minimally discussed and totally irrelevant to Trump’s decision, it was really just an hour-long Snapple commercial.

In a statement released Friday, Michaels' doctor said that the Poison front man was expected to make a full recovery thanks to his 'undeniable' will to live. This episode showed the rocker to be a determined leader who will fight for his vision and strongly advocate for plumbers' cracks. It was Bret Michaels at his most undeniable.

With this lingering in the back of viewers minds, it was nice to see an episode where everyone brought their A-game and collectively raised nearly $350,000 for charity.

The goal was to help transform them from unknown to well-known in a Donald Trump-sponsored New York minute.
