It is just after 7pm in Hollywood when with little fanfare, songstress Corinne Bailey Rae slips onto the stage of the Hotel Café wearing a deep blue jumpsuit, corkscrew curls and a self-effacing smile. Backed by a five-piece band, the 30 year-old English waif wastes no time launching into the first of several new tunes off her upcoming album, THE SEA.
Despite the critical and commercial success of her 2006 debut self-titled album, Rae appears taken aback at times by the appreciation of the assemblage, smiling shyly at the ovation after each song and thanking everyone for their "support."...

They don't get top billing. You know the face but can't quite place the name. Though they toil in the shadows of more famous leads, to imply that character actors merely 'support' is to vastly underrate the contributions of many remarkable entertainers: Often, it is the performance of lesser-knowns that leaps from screens large and small into the hearts of an audience, leaving them with both a lasting impression and a question that begs to be answered: 'Who the heck is that?'
As a misunderstood 19th-century rent-collector called Pancks, British actor Eddie Marsan sputters and guffaws his...

2009 Oscar Predictions: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

So, have you seen this year's comedy about an overweight, overzealous, loser-y mall cop who takes his job way too seriously and is hopelessly in love with a fellow shopping center employee? If you're not sure whether I'm referring to January's hit Paul Blart: Mall Cop or the newest Seth Rogen comedy Observe and Report (in theaters now), don't be too hard on yourself: Both flicks have eerily similar plotlines. This isn't the first time two films with the same subject matter have been released within a year of one another; Hollywood has a talent for redundancy (see: recycling and ripping off)...

Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

The President of MTV Networks recently described one superstar artist as "pushing the boundaries of hip-hop with his signature antics, incredible catalogue of music, legendary videos, larger than life personality and even a little controversy."
So, what's this particular artist's 'motherfu*king name'? Hint: He's slim with the tilted brim, frequently has his mind on his money (and yes, his money on his mind) and he's not afraid to drop it like it's hot.
In fact, it's these attributes that compel a group of reporters - yours truly among them - to the upscale Hollywood nightclub The ...

Hilary vs. Faye, Beyonce vs. Etta and Chris Brown vs. Decent Society: No doubt about it, the celebrity feud is alive and well. Though many celeb squabbles make for amusing gossip fodder, it's rare for public battles to result in real-life rows; except, of course, when volatile stars enact personal wars in the workplace. What do you get when you cross massive egos and crippling insecurities with bright klieg lights and tight shooting schedules? Ten of the juiciest on-set squabbles in Hollywood history, that's what. Lights, camera, altercation!

'The Hills' Is Back With An Alternate Ending

Once upon a television season, fans of police dramas and crime procedurals didn't think detectives could ever get more hard-boiled than Vic Mackey of "The Shield" or Andy Sipowicz of "NYPD Blue." Thankfully, we were wrong. Not only are there an increasing number of take-no-prisoners police detectives and home-sleuths on the case, but many of them are wearing skirts. From Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Roselyn Sanchez in "Without A Trace" to Kathryn Morris in "Cold Case," "Law and Order's" S. Epatha Merkerson and the women of the CSI franchise, powerful, well-written female pro...

It's the moment in time most little girls dream of: The day she walks down the aisle. Weddings are big business and for those taking the plunge, resources have tripled, prices have skyrocketed and one-upmanship - as laughingly portrayed in the film Bride Wars - has become the standard. No better place does the booming bridal business - due to generate $60 million in 2009 - meet mass consumption than in the info-tainment genre of reality wedding programming. The genre first waltzed onto the small screen with TLC's now defunct "A Wedding Story" and was soon followed by shows about fiancées lo...

After the seemingly unstoppable juggernaut that is "American Idol" concluded its seventh season in May 2008 with 2.7 million fewer viewers than the previous season's finale, creative forces behind the show scrambled to regroup. This summer, Fox executives wasted no time in announcing big changes for the singing competition's upcoming 8th season.
On the minds of fans and critics alike: Would audiences accustomed to the 'AI' formula accept the alterations? Would the changes be enough to stymie the slow bleed of viewers? Who the heck is Kara DioGuardi?!?
Let's examine the much-hyped...
