Review: 5 Seconds of Summer Have a Knack for Catchy Choruses
“You look so perfect standing there / in my American Apparel underwear / and I know now, that I’m so down.” Catchy! Australian teen band 5 Seconds of Summer master the art of the catchy chorus throughout their full-length, self-titled debut album. After previewing this knack on EP She Looks So Perfect, yet another young band – aimed at teens and younger – looks to dominate not only Summer, but pop itself.

5 Second of Summer don’t ‘slay’ overall as much as their choruses do, but they don’t fail either. The first couple of songs from 5 Seconds of Summer are actually pretty good (that tra...

Ben Affleck as Batman
Batman is celebrating his 75th birthday at this year's Comic Con, and to honor the Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. unveiled a new photo of Ben Affleck wearing the hero's famed cowl at the annual pop culture event.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still nearly two years away, it's a good bet that DC Comics will be using the occasion to steal a little thunder from rival Marvel Comics, which will be trotting out several superhero films between now and then, beginning with this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens August 1 and will be the studio's main focus at Comic Con.

Weird Al Yankovic
Weird Al Yankovic still can't believe that his latest album, "Mandatory Fun," has debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200 chart.

"It's still hard for me to wrap my head around that. It means a lot to me," the comedian said in a recent interview, according to Reuters.

"I didn't think [a number-one album] was an option for me," he told TIME magazine. "I thought there was a glass ceiling for comedy albums. The last time a comedy album topped the Billboard charts was over half a century ago."

That album was Allan Sherman's "My Son, the Nut" in 1963.

Last week Yankovic told National Publi...

They've also speculated what happened to her beautiful red locks after they were chopped off. In case you're wondering, no, her hair wasn't made into a wig for the upcoming "Star Wars" film. She told BBC at the London premiere of "Guardians" that the rumor was a "miscommunication."

During an appearance on British talk show "Lorraine," the former "Doctor Who" star talked about going bald for the first t...
