NFL To Charge Halftime Acts To Perform?

August 20th, 2014 5:21pm EDT
Halftime Show
Katy Perry, Coldplay and Rihanna have all reportedly been approached by the National Football League to possibly perform during halftime of Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, 2015. But there's a catch.

The NFL, according to the Wall Street Journal, wants this year's performers to pay to put on their act for millions of TV viewers around the globe.

The league, which only gets a measly $4 million for 30 seconds of ad time during the big game, thinks artists should have to give them a cut of their post-performance profits from touring and boosted album sales following the performance.

Pierce Bronsan Plays 'GoldenEye' With Superfan Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon is a huge fan of James Bond. On Tuesday night he interviewed Pierce Brosnan and told him how much he loved the classic Nintendo 64 videogame "GoldenEye 007."

"This is one of the best video games of all time," Fallon declared.

"It was extremely popular," Brosnan agreed. "I was no good at it. I played it once and shot myself in the foot."

Fallon said it was a childhood dream to play the video game with Bronsan, who agreed.

"This is fantastic. Oh, my gosh," Fallon gushed. "I'm very excited about this. You don't understand."

We're not going to tell you who won, but Fallon,...

Rick Hoffman Previews Tonight's 'Suits' Finale: 'This Is Definitely The Episode To Watch'

August 20th, 2014 3:10pm EDT
Suits
Has Louis Litt really left the building? After the events of last week's episode of Suits, it's hard to believe that the lawyer we loved to hate (and secretly loved) has fallen so far in season four. But there's still one more episode to go - tonight's midseason finale.

So we spoke to Louis himself, Rick Hoffman, on Wednesday morning to discuss filming the big moment in "Gone," what he thinks of the dynamics at Pearson Hardman, and how Louis is going to come back...right?

(SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up with last week's episode of Suits, and/or don't want to know absolutely anyth...

'Rookie Blue's' Enuka Okuma Guest Stars In Tonight's 'Motive'
Rookie Blue star Enuka Okuma is a featured player in tonight's Motive.

In the episode, entitled "Kiss of Death," the actress plays best-selling murder mystery author Lori Oliver, who crosses paths with detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira).

Enuka spoke with us about the guest spot during our interview in June; you can click here for some spoilery tidbits, but the non-spoilery part is that it wasn't a huge leap for her to visit the other Canadian crime drama.

"Years ago, I did a pilot with Kristin Lehman out in Los Angeles, so we've been friends since the...

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Episode 2: Bad, Bad Dates

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Episode 2: Bad, Bad Dates
Seriously, I could shake these people.

Like so many singles I have known in my life, the cast chews your ear off about how they want a relationship, they want to be in love, they want to meet somebody…and then all they do is sabotage an opportunity that comes their way.

The theme this week was Dates: The Good, The Bad and The Obnoxious; as three out of the five people who actually appeared prominently on the show this week went on ones that just did not work out. Was it them or was it the person they went out with? As often is the case in most situations, there's enough blame to go around...

New Pics: Beyonce's Wax Figure Looks A Bit Off

New Photos: Beyonce's New Wax Figure, Lily Aldridge, Minka Kelly
Madame Tussauds unveiled a new waxwork figure of Beyonce on Tuesday in Regents Park in London, but something about it looks a little off to us.

We actually kind of think it looks more like transgender Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox.

Either way, the geese at the park enjoyed it.

We spotted lots of other stars out and about also, like Cara Santana, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Lily Aldridge (our favorite), Maria Sharapova and the always gorgeous Minka Kelly.

"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" had its premiere Tuesday night, and the stars came out for that one also. See pics of ...

Review: Wiz Khalifa Brings More Of The Same On ‘Blacc Hollywood’

August 20th, 2014 9:21am EDT
Wiz Khalifa, 'Blacc Hollywood'
If nothing else comes across on a Wiz Khalifa album, the MC’s love of weed does. It seems as if no Wiz song is a go without a reference to smoking. While the honesty is appreciated, it is often overplayed, growing tiresome album in and album out. On third album of note, Blacc Hollywood, weed definitely remains part of Wiz. His shallowness as an MC as well, dominates his latest album. Ultimately, Wiz Khalifa is who he is, and nothing more.

“Hope” opens Blacc Hollywood, featuring up and coming artist Ty Dolla $ign. Chevy Woods provides a lengthy intro before Wiz ever spits one bar. Ulti...

Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Music Video Is All Butts, All The Time

August 20th, 2014 9:07am EDT
Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj's highly anticipated "Anaconda" video has finally arrived, and as expected it features a lot of butts.

The hip hop starlet's latest single draws off of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" and revolves around Minaj's posterior, often displayed in a thong. Minaj is obviously proud of her big booty, and at one point criticizes all the skinny girls for not having one.

The very sexual video starts off in the jungle ("Anaconda," get it?) and includes Minaj working out with some weights as back-up dancers do their own exercises next to her. There's also a moment where she squeezes whip c...
