Scientists name extinct, big-lipped swamp creature after Mick Jagger

Adam Levine might have the moves like Jagger, but a now-extinct swamp creature had the lips like Jagger.

Scientists recently discovered the creature, which lived in the swamps of Africa 19 million years ago, and found that it had notable lips during its day—just like the Rolling Stones frontman. “The animal probably had a highly innervated muzzle with mobile and tactile lips,” Greg Gunnell, a Duke University paleontologist and the study’s co-author, said in a statement. Thus, the animal was dubbed Jaggermeryx naida, a scientific name translating to “Jagger’s water nymph.” (Angelina Jolie was also in the running, but study co-author Ellen Miller insisted on Jagger.)

The Rolling Stones heading to 'Downton Abbey'? Here are five potential storylines

Remember a few weeks ago when Diddy announced he was joining the cast of Downton Abbey and everyone said, ‘No way!’ and then it kind of happened, albeit via a Funny or Die video? Well, now the Rolling Stones are rumored to be possibly dropping by Downton next season. U.K. paper The Mirror reports Hugh Bonneville is friends with Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and is trying to get the group to film an appearance. “Obviously they wouldn’t play themselves, but they could be a rag-tag bunch of traveling entertainers or even a circus act. It would be such a coup, and fun for the Stones. They really are huge fans of the show,” an anonymous source told the paper.

BOOM! There are so many things to unpack here. Cousin Robert parties with Ronnie? The Stones really watch Downton? Did Mick Jagger cry over Matthew’s death? A rep for the show didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for confirmation that the Rolling Stones may actually, in real life, be filming a guest spot on Downton. [UPDATE: A rep for the show tells EW it’s not true.] But, for fun, let’s assume this is totally happening. Below, what we’re hoping to see if Mick Jagger and Co. swing by the estate next season.

Mick Jagger reads 'Letterman' top 10 list -- VIDEO

With 2012 rolling to a close, the Rolling Stones are squeezing the last bit of juice out of their (well-deserved) 50th anniversary celebrations, including stopping off at the Late Show to share some decades-honed rock ‘n’ roll wisdom.

An enthusiastic Mick Jagger put the moves on David Letterman’s audience, blowing kisses and waving to the crowd. “I don’t deserve it but thank you!” he said before launching into his “Top Ten Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years in Rock ‘n’ Roll.” Among the gems: “before shouting ‘Hi, Seattle,’ make sure you’re in Seattle”; and “a good way to keep yourself entertained is to sign every tenth autograph ‘Doris Goldblatt.'” Oh, and “never take relationship advice from Phil Spector.” Noted.

Check out the video, featuring exclusive footage from backstage, below. Meanwhile, I’ll be selling my Doris Goldblatt autograph on eBay. READ FULL STORY

Who's on your dream 'American Idol' judging panel?

Steven Tyler announced yesterday that he would not be returning as a judge to American Idol next season, and just moments ago Jennifer Lopez followed suit, announcing that the past season of Idol would be her last.

With Randy Jackson’s spot up in the air, the judging panel for the 12th season of the singing show staple is wide open. PopWatch got to brainstorming who we’d love to see in the judges’ (non-spinny) chairs.


'SNL': Sorry 'Boston Powers' and Dave Grohl, you didn't make the cut

Saturday Night Live released its third “Kings of Catchphrase Comedy” sketch, which was supposed to air this weekend. It’s pretty obvious why it didn’t make the cut: Not enough Wiig! SNL spent most of its finale bidding a fond farewell to Kristen Wiig after seven years, and, though her few seconds as Triangle Sally in the cut skit were awesome, they were too paltry to merit inclusion. Watch the unaired sketch below. READ FULL STORY

Mick Jagger hosts tonight's 'Saturday Night Live' finale: Talk about it here!

Mick Jagger has managed to stay both incredibly famous and beloved for half a century. Considering the modern era’s notoriously short attention span, that’s no small feat. But despite Jagger’s celebrity magnetism, SNL viewers might find their minds wandering when he hosts tonight’s season finale. Instead of focusing on Jagger, we’ll be focusing on Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, and Andy Samberg — three veterans who might be leaving the show once Season 37 ends. And if any of them goes, SNL as we know it will change significantly.

Cast members depart at the end of every season — but these three have particularly strong legacies. Or, at least, two of them do. Samberg’s Digital Shorts — created with the help of his Lonely Island cohorts Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer — kept SNL relevant in the digital age and drove the show to start posting its own sketches online. For years, it seemed like Kristen Wiig single-handedly played all of Saturday Night Live‘s female speaking roles — and though cast mates like Vanessa Bayer and Abby Elliott have started picking up her slack, she’s still SNL‘s MVP. Sudeikis hasn’t had as much of an impact as Samberg or Wiig, but he’s always been a solid supporting player; nobody plays a handsome, likeable goof quite like he does.

Even so, I hope the writers don’t use these potential exits to justify bringing back tired old characters — especially Wiig’s one-upper Penelope, or any of the old-fashioned broads she plays in various recurring sketches.  READ FULL STORY

Mick Jagger's 'Saturday Night Live' promos -- VIDEO

It’s always so sweet when you meet one of your idols. Someone who taught you to act, to sing, or, in Kristin Wiig’s case, how to take drugs and engage in shameful and erotic sexual activities. Her so-called teacher was none other than Mick Jagger, who makes his Saturday Night Live solo hosting debut this weekend, though he will be a third-time musical guest. It’s already been forewarned that Keith Richards won’t cameo on the show, but after seeing Wiig’s horrendous guitar-playing skills in the promo, we’re thinking he might want to reconsider.

Watch the bleep-filled shenanigans below. READ FULL STORY
