While listening to Frozen’s “Let It Go,” have you ever thought, “Patrick Stewart and/or a bunch of other ’80s TV stars would make this gem even better”? No? Well, video producer Jim Cliff went ahead and edited together clips from over 60 different ’80s television shows to make a new, Tom Selleck-filled version of “Let It Go” anyway—and yes, Stewart’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard even joins in on the chorus.

A tree that someone planted in memory of the Beatles’ George Harrison is no more: It was destroyed by beetles. No, really.
The pine tree, planted in 2004 near Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory, died when it was infested by a swarm of beetles. It will eventually be replanted—but for now, we have some words for those tree-destroying insects. And naturally, those words come in the form of reinvented Beatles songs. READ FULL STORY
In Hollywood, when big celebrities discover a splendid little documentary, they’re sometimes tempted to adapt it into a big-budget feature film—which may destroy what they loved about that little doc in the first place. But Ted Danson and Zach Galiafanakis aren’t your typical power-mad narcissists. They fell in love with Mistaken for Strangers, the poignant music doc about slacker Tom Berninger and his brother, Matt, who happens to be the lead singer of The National. Rather than turn it into a film, the two former Bored to Death co-stars took that pure story to the only place it could truly be told: the stage.
In a new Funny or Die video, the perfectly-cast Galifianakis talks about his dream to come to Broadway—after playing Shrek off-Broadway. READ FULL STORY
This Thursday, Fifty Shades of Grey fans will get their first peek at the film when its trailer finally debuts. But much like its teaser, the full-length trailer won’t premiere on any website. Instead, it will debut on the Queen of Pop’s Instagram account, which prompts an important question: What does Beyoncé have to do with Fifty Shades of Grey?
So far, the only connection between Beyoncé and the film is her Instagram account, and the fact that she can be heard singing what sounds like a slowed down, sultry version of “Crazy In Love” at the end of the teaser. Could that be her only connection to the movie? It’s a possibility. But just in case it’s not, we’ve come up with a few more theories: READ FULL STORY
Sure, some of the interview is actually pretty sweet—he talks about wanting to make sure his daughter’s life is better than his own, how much he loves his wife, Kim Kardashian, how special it is to have someone to call “Mom” once again. (He also basically confirms that every insane rumor you heard about the Kimye wedding was 100 percent true.) But when we look to Kanye West, we’re hoping to get some more of his signature out-there statements—and luckily, there’s no shortage of them in this latest interview. The best examples, totally out of context:
With The Night Shift having already scored a second season on NBC, co-stars Jill Flint and Eoin Macken will be spending a lot more time together. As we discovered when they visited EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, they still have a lot to learn about one another, especially when it comes to celeb crushes and music preferences.

Kanye West doesn’t have the best history with airports: He’s been arrested twice, once in 2008 and another time in 2013, for getting in altercations with photographers at LAX. But in a clip TMZ obtained from a failed 2010 reality pilot about West’s travel agent, the rapper claims he likes being in airports—he just has to have a few strategies for dealing with the people in them.
The future according to the world of sci-fi is really appealing—if you’re a teenage boy.
In a wacky video for their new song, “These Aren’t the Droids,” singer Neko Case and her longtime collaborator Kelly Hogan slyly highlight the extent to which popular visions of the future are designed to appeal to teenage male fans. Case wears a Star Trek uniform and Princess Leia wig (probably just to make you angry about that combination), while Hogan sports a full-on Chewbacca costume. Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids) also appears as a woman unfulfilled by her relationship with a Star Wars stormtrooper.
About a year ago, the Internet—at least, the not-insubstantial part of it where hip-hop, contemporary art, and online culture overlap—went suddenly, seriously crazy over a Swedish rapper named Yung Lean. He had just released a song and video called “Hurt,” and was about to release a mixtape in conjunction with the influential Brooklyn streetwear brand Mishka. It was crudely made, from its rudimentary beat to its garishly computerized video, and the ambiguity of whether it was serious was part of the appeal.
“Hurt” seemed like the sort of weirdly entertaining diversion the Internet likes to obsess over briefly, just until the next one shows up—but Yung Lean’s fan base has only grown and strengthened since then. A little less than a month ago, he released a new single, “Yoshi City,” that significantly ups the quality in all respects, from the catchiness of the hook to the professional production quality of the video.
Now Lean’s about to start his first American tour and is prepping for the release of a new album later this year. He’s also on the verge of making the leap from an Internet cult to a real-life one, a la Odd Future. Here’s a primer on the unexpected next big thing in rap (maybe):
- 'Manhattan Love Story' canceled by ABC
- 'Ouija' is Friday's No. 1 movie: $8.3M
- Jack Bruce, bassist for Cream, dies at 71
- Rainn Wilson's Vine series: Curtis Lepore out
- 'Constantine' off to modest start in ratings
- Ewan McGregor vs. 'Star Wars' faux fans
- 'Honey Boo Boo' canceled by TLC
- Billy Boyd song for next 'Hobbit' end-credits
- 'Thrones': 86,000 answer call for 600 extras
- 'Project Runway' winner: 'It's just sinking in'
