'Glee': Madonna! Stevie Wonder! The top ten tribute episodes -- ranked! VIDEO

As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)

Last night, Glee added Stevie Wonder to the diverse group of icons the show has celebrated, which got me thinking — where does Wonder fall among the Glee kids’ homages? Below, check out our rankings of the top ten tribute episodes Glee has undertaken in the past four seasons — along with some videos of the best performance from each musical-icon-filled hour.

Ryan Gosling joins long line of directors who have cast their wives and girlfriends in movies

Earlier this month, Ryan Gosling cast girlfriend Eva Mendes in his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. With production on the fantasy film set to begin this May, Gosling is a few months away from the joys and challenges of directing a significant other.

But Gosling is hardly the first director to cast his sweetheart in his own movie. Woody Allen is famous for dating (and sometimes marrying) many of his leading ladies, and Paul Newman also directed wife Joanne Woodward in multiple films.

Here’s a round-up of other men who have directed their actress significant others — some of whom are still going strong, while others’ relationships are in the rear-view mirror.

Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich
This couple met while working on 2002’s Resident Evil. Since they began dating in 2003 (with a wedding following in 2009), Anderson and Jovovich have made four more films in the lucrative zombie franchise. The British director also cast his wife in his 2011 adaptation of The Three Musketeers.
Anderson on directing Jovovich: “I always call her the hardest working person in show business. I’ve never met an actor as dedicated as she is. She’s like the Terminator, relentless. It can be 2 a.m. in the morning, and she suggests we talk about some aspect of the film. How about we don’t, Milla? But we both just love making movies.” [Huffington Post]
Jovovich on working with Anderson: “I tell Paul every day, he spoils me. It is such a pleasure. We have our family together. We do these fun movies together. What am I going to do when I have to go work with somebody else?” [Huffington Post]
Are they still together? Yep. And they’re planning to continue their working relationship too — both are expected to return for a sixth Resident Evil installment. READ FULL STORY

Madonna joins Instagram, shows off her sexy and silly sides

Cheers motherfuckers! I'm on instagram

Who needs Grammy nominations when you’ve got an iPhone and no inhibitions?

Madonna relaunched her Instagram page this weekend, adding a trio of selfies to the handful of concert shots she posted back in November. (The Grammys, which snubbed MDNA completely, were also this weekend. Coincidence?) Like other celebrity Instagram users, it looks like Madge is going to use the site as a fairly personal forum; the first photo she posted this weekend shows the star doing her best Samantha Jones impression while drinking a dirty martini and rocking a lingerie-inspired dress, and the second is a close-up shot of her glistening cleavage accompanied by a caption that reads “Addicted to sweat!!!!!” (It doubles as the name of her workout DVD collection.)

Madonna does not play favorites... with her breasts

Never one to court controversy just for the sake of it, Madonna flashed her left breast in Paris on Saturday night. The Bastille Day exposure comes a month after the 53-year-old performer popped out her right boob at a concert in Istanbul. Topping the Turkey flash, Madonna also went on to drop trou, unleashing her pop-star posterior to a whooping audience during the song “Human Nature.” It may be human nature to reveal some skin but perhaps it’s time for the Material Girl to find some new material? Politics, however, might not be an option either.

Madonna's Roman ass-flash: What does it all mean?

After revealing her right nipple at an Istanbul concert last weekend, Madonna continued her No Fearing My 53-Year-Old Human Nature world tour by flashing her ass — this time, at a concert in Rome.

Eh. Fishnets over sheer stockings OVER an ass? She’s practically overdressed. I’m sorry but this “flash” is as fake as House Hunters. READ FULL STORY

Ukrainian huckster in the news after sneak attack Will Smith kiss


Yesterday PopWatch brought you the viral video of a stunned Will Smith giving a Ukrainian reporter a little smack after the man went in for a sloppy kiss at the Men In Black III Moscow premiere. Some of the comments were outraged, with accusations against Smith ranging from homophobia to ignorance of European cultural etiquette. PopWatch’s revelation that the hand-checked man in question was Vitalii Sediuk, a semi-notorious snickerer of a TV journalist who is known for such stunts didn’t seem to cut the conversation short.

Folks, look at that picture. Smith appears genuinely put out, which strikes me as a reasonable response to a stranger trying to smush his or her tongue in your mouth. Meanwhile Sediuk is grinning like an idiot, well aware that he’s hit pay dirt by eliciting a swift and dramatic response from such an affable movie star. Sediuk is the same fellow who, with feigned earnestness, gave a scornful Madonna that bouquet of hydrangeas. Admittedly, she behaved like a miserable snot but the craven videos of Sediuk smugly preening about her poor form are equally obnoxious.

“He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him,” Smith told his handlers, before immediately regaining his smoothest-guy-in-the-room composure. One day later we’re still writing about Sediuk so I guess he’s sucker punched us. But would that this fade quickly into the minutiae of non-news. In the last week Will Smith publicly announced his admiration for President Obama’s support of gay marriage. “If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form,” Smith said at a press conference in Berlin. Whether you think any degree of physical violence is right or wrong, whether or not you think a kiss is just a kiss, let’s keep it real. Smith didn’t give Sediuk the back hand because he was a man. He did it because he was a clown.

Didn't see that coming! Will Smith smacks reporter -- VIDEO

In today’s slamdunk viral video news, TMZ just posted a clip of Hollywood nice guy Will Smith physically lashing out at a frisky Ukrainian reporter at the start of the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere today.

The reporter, from Ukranian TV channel 1+1, asks Smith for a hug, and the actor gladly obliges — only to find himself on the receiving end of an open-mouth kiss. Startled, Smith pushes the guy off, gives him a little slap in the face, then continues down the red carpet, joking with other, less aggressive reporters and signing autographs for fans. (Smith’s camp had no comment on the altercation.)

Watch TMZ‘s footage of the run-in — and learn the incident’s relation to the world’s biggest pop star — below. READ FULL STORY

Madonna Truth or Dare perfume ad: Retro or rehash? -- VIDEO

You know you’ve reached a particular level of success when going retro doesn’t mean referencing old classics (Greta Garbo and Monroe, Dietrich and DiMaggio come to mind) but, in fact, means referencing yourself referencing old classics. That’s exactly the meta-existential crossroad at which Madonna stands in her new ad for Truth or Dare perfume.

The 30-second spot is in some ways an extension of the “Girl Gone Wild” video Madge released last week. Though it does more than evoke the golden olden days à la “Wild,” it takes the aesthetic straight back to “Erotica.” Check it out below. READ FULL STORY
