An incomplete list of things these Kimye wedding photos remind us of

E! News

Although he couldn’t know it at the time, Kanye West inadvertently gave voice to his own future wedding guests with this lyric from 2007’s “Stronger”: “You should be honored by my lateness/that I would even show up to this fake sh–/So go ahead go nuts/go apesh–.” (Important note: Beyoncé and Jay Z declined to show up to “this fake sh–.”)

As everyone is all too aware, Kim Kardashian made her third trip down the aisle this past weekend. (#ThirdTimesTheCharm?) And now E!  — because of course — has photos of the big event. Photo one is a shot of the couple in front of a wall of flowers; shot two shows Kardashian and West in leather jackets as Kanye (probably) explains the Grease-inspired concept for his next album. Sample lyric: “There are worse things I could do/ than marry a reality star or two/ Even though the neighborhood/ thinks she’s trashy and no good…” READ FULL STORY

Slash plays national anthem at NHL playoff game; LeAnn Rimes gets patriotic at Indy 500 -- VIDEO

Celebrities are getting patriotic this Memorial Day weekend.

LeAnn Rimes appeared at the Indianapolis 500 on Saturday to kick off the storied race with her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” She nailed it (the jet flyover didn’t hurt). Check out the clip below:

Meanwhile, NHL national anthem singers are often of the bow tie-wearing, classically trained variety. For the Los Angeles’ Kings first home game in the 2014 Western Conference Final on Saturday night, traditional wasn’t going to cut it.

For their game 3 contest against reigning Stanley Cup champs the Chicago Blackhawks, the Kings enlisted none other than Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash to shred his way through “The Star-Spangled Banner.” (Usual anthem singer, American Idol alum Pia Toscano, was attending a wedding and unable to perform.) It wasn’t Jimi Hendrix levels of awesome, but it certainly amped up the Staples Center crowd, which cheered their team on to a 4-3 victory over the ‘Hawks. The Kings now lead the series 2-1. The full clip is below:


Saturday night’s win makes the Kings 2-0 when Slash performs the game-opener in L.A. Think they’ll ask him to return?

Rupert Grint: Singer? Listen to his new song

Urgent Daily Prophet bulletin: After graduating from Hogwarts, Ron Weasley (err, Rupert Grint, if you care about “accuracy”) apparently attended some sort of magical singing camp. He’s featured on the soundtrack for the British animated film Postman Pat: The Movie, performing a song called “Lightning.”

The best news? Grint sounds pretty great on the catchy, teen-pop-esque track. (In addition to singing, Grint voices the character of Josh, Pat’s rival, in the film, which opens today in the U.K.)

Listen below, and decide if Weasley is your king once again. READ FULL STORY

Which Beyonce rumors did we make up? -- QUIZ

By now, we all know that Beyoncé is part of the Illuminati… or is she?

When video footage of Bey’s sister Solange kicking Jay Z was released, conspiracy theorists everywhere had the new fodder they’ve been looking for: An opportunity to make up more rumors about what’s really going on in Beyoncé‘s life.

Beyoncé is no stranger to these nutty theories. In fact, there are so many out-there ones that we’ve gathered together the most popular and sprinkled in our own completely made-up, baseless rumors about Queen B. Warning to all the gossipmongers out there: Nothing below is true. (Probably.)

This Week's Cover: Danny McBride grills the Black Keys in our Summer Music Preview issue

EW-COVER1312.jpg

We here at Entertainment Weekly like to think of our jobs as highly specialized. (Not just anyone can push that little voice-recorder button while simultaneously asking questions and nodding, wisely, you know.) But when the Black Keys said they wanted to be interviewed by Danny McBride, how could we refuse? After all, the platinum-selling, Grammy awards-collecting rock duo just released their eighth studio album, Turn Blue, and will be dominating festivals and headlining arena shows from Croatia to Cleveland this summer. We asked McBride, 37 — so memorable as egomaniacal pitcher Kenny Powers on HBO’s late, lamented Eastbound & Down and as himself in last year’s star-packed apocalyptic meta-comedy This Is the End — to kick off our Summer Music Preview issue by manning the tiny microphone.
