[SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading if you haven't seen Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones.]

The internet might not always give us what we want, but it always gives us what need. And we definitely needed this mash-up of The O.C. and Game of Thrones. READ FULL STORY

'Orange Is the New Black': What if Uzo Aduba played every part? -- VIDEO

Tatiana Maslany isn’t the only actor who’s prepared to take on multiple roles in a television show. She’s also not the only actor who knows how to rock a wig (or five).

In a new Funny or Die video, Orange Is the New Black‘s Uzo Aduba “auditions” for various other roles on the show, including Piper, Red, Taystee, and more. There’s stretching, singing, and even a Lil’ Wayne impression of sorts. They might’ve wanted her to read for the part of Crazy Eyes, but it’s obvious Aduba could’ve taken on a number of characters.

Dave Chappelle claims he's just 'seven years late for work' on 'Chappelle's Show'

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you just decided to stop showing up to work? Dave Chappelle has. And in 2005, he did – walking away from his hit Comedy Central series Chappelle’s Show midway through its third season.

The reclusive comedian explained his reasoning in an interview with David Letterman on Late Night Tuesday. “Technically, I never quit. I’m seven years late for work,” he joked. Work briefly continued in his absence, however, as the network aired three episodes from the show’s incomplete third season in 2006 before calling it quits.

Lena Dunham performs interpretive dance while Sia sings on 'Late Night'

Today in “sentences that once seemed impossible”: Lena Dunham performed an interpretive dance to Sia’s latest hit, “Chandelier,” on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday night.

As fans of Sia — a singer who’s also written songs for Beyonce and Katy Perry, among others — are aware, the musician doesn’t like appearing on camera. “Chandelier” is the first single off her upcoming solo album 1000 Forms Of Fear, Sia’s first since 2010′s We Are Born.

Inspired by the song’s official video, the Late Night performance finds Dunham (wearing a blond wig not unlike the one Hannah Horvath wore last season on Girls) dancing around a bedroom set, smashing things and rocking out. You know, as one does. Important note: For this entire performance, Sia is also lying facedown on a bed.

Right Said Fred is too sexy for Bashar al-Assad on 'Last Week Tonight'

Among Syrian despot Bashar al-Assad’s many sins is his poor taste in music. CNN recently learned that the Middle Eastern president has been buying music off iTunes — and that his purchases include “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO and “Look at Me Now” by Chris Brown. Chris Brown? Really, Assad?

Assad also purchased a song by Right Said Fred, the band behind the early ’90s hit “I’m Too Sexy.” So naturally, John Oliver brought the group onto Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight, where they returned the favor (sort of). Brothers Richard and Fred Fairbrass performed a custom version of their most popular song, replacing lyrics like “I’m a model, you know what I mean” with “You’re a monster, we hate your regime.” They even generously offered to refund Assad on his purchase, singing, “Stop downloading our tracks, here’s your money back!”

Sir Mix-a-Lot performs 'Baby Got Back' with the Seattle Symphony

If you were under the impression that “I like big butts and I cannot lie” is the sort of lyric that can’t be rapped at a classy event, well, get ready to be proven wrong.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Seattle Symphony’s Sonic Evolution: The series commissions new orchestral work that’s inspired by music icons from the city. And for London-based composer, DJ, and producer Gabriel Prokofiev, that meant remixing Sir Mix-a-Lot’s 90′s hit “Baby Got Back” during an appearance at Benaroya Hall.

When Sir Mix-A-Lot took the stage, he made sure to put chivalry first and invite all the ladies up to join him: “So what I wanna do now is something you really should not do. But since tonight is orchestral-movements-from-the-hood night, I’m going to leave some of this open if a couple of ladies would like to get up on the stage. I don’t touch.” He finished with, “We will not bite unless you want us to.” READ FULL STORY

Mariah Carey rides the New York City subway in a floor-length gown

I-Am-Mariah.jpg

There can be miracles when you believe.

As long as your idea of a miracle is seeing the elusive chanteuse herself, Mariah Carey, riding the subway in New York City during your commute. Apparently, Mimi did just that Thursday night following a Fresh Air Fund gala. Naturally, she’s wearing a ballgown. Naturally, people can see what appears to be minimum two bodyguards in the shot. Naturally, she’s also got gloves on, because while she may sit with the people, she’s certainly not touching them.

“Glimpses of our joyride on the 1 train #subwayincouture,” Carey captioned the Instagram pic. Check out Carey — who joins a list of high-profile subway-goers that includes MadonnaJay-Z, and, uh, Rick Springfield –  enjoying one sweet day (with the people) below: READ FULL STORY

Low Budget Beasts, bad 'Joseph' wigs, and 3 more Tumblrs about the indignity of community theater

Community-Theatre.jpg

First, let me say that I loved my days in community theater. It’s where I learned how to do a time-step and workshop different accents — including “British” and “unplaceable European” — and do mic check exclusively with Whitney Houston songs. I loved every production I was in, no matter how stressful or awful, because the biggest truth about community theater is that misery loves company. If I’m miserable in a cat costume during the sixth straight hour of tech, I have to believe everyone else is miserable, too.

If you’ve been involved in less-than-professional theater, you know these harsh truths: productions can be, for lack of a better term, comedically schlocky. That’s where these five amazing Tumblrs come in — each of which truly reflects the worst elements of community theater. (And before you cry afoul, know that What I Did for Love is assemble this post for you.) READ FULL STORY

Brad Pitt attacked by notorious 'prankster' at 'Maleficent' premiere

It seems we all need another rundown of what a “prank” is, because notorious “prankster” (i.e. celebrity harasser) Vitalii Sediuk is at it again — this time attacking Brad Pitt at the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent.

A brief catch up: Sediuk is a reporter for Ukraine TV channel 1+1 who’s had several run-ins with big-name stars before. He’s the same guy who attempted to kiss Will Smith on a red carpet “as a joke,” hugged Bradley Cooper’s crotch at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and attempted to get underneath America Ferrera’s skirt at Cannes a few weeks ago, among other incidents. (He’s also responsible for giving Madonna horrible, disgusting, loathesome hydrangeas that one time.) READ FULL STORY
