Grammys 2013: The night's most 'What Memo?' outfits

So, now that the 55th Annual Grammys have officially ended, it’s time to ask the most important question of the night: Were all of the televised buttocks and female breasts adequately covered?

This year, CBS issued a memo outlining their preferred list of dos and dont’s regarding Grammy outfits. In addition to banning inadequately covered buns and boobs, the pearls-clutching network also advised against such scandalous sartorial cues as “thong type costumes,” “bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack,” “female breast nipples,” and other similarly steamy phrases.

And, of course, the Grammy guests didn’t listen to any of that noise. Below, check out our list of stars who dared to bare at this year’s Grammys: READ FULL STORY

Inaugural Balls: The Obamas and Bidens dance, but so do Piers Morgan and Chris Tucker

The Obamas had their first dance to a Jennifer Hudson cover of “Let’s Stay Together,” and the Bidens were serenaded by Jamie Foxx singing “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” But there was another dance to watch during the inaugural balls: That of CNN’s indoor coverage, which had to juggle politics and a party. The tone was set early when Piers Morgan and Erin Burnett tried to interview San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Rep. Joaquin Castro while Rihanna’s “Please Don’t Stop the Music” blared in the background. Ultimately, Piers just gave up:

Piers: By the way, I’ve never met any Latino that can’t dance, so are you guys gonna be — [Julian and Joaquin laugh and say he just met his first two].

Erin: Pierce’s first highly inappropriate comment of the evening.

Piers: That’s not inappropriate. I never have.

In case you were wondering, I’d say Piers’ second inappropriate comment came when he segued from a taped interview with performer Stevie Wonder to a live chat with the Black Eyed Peas will.i.am by referring to him as “almost as big a legend now in the music world as Stevie Wonder.” READ FULL STORY

'2 Broke Girls' star Matthew Moy takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test

Playing diner owner Han Lee on the ribald 2 Broke Girls, Matthew Moy has one very memorable role on the CBS comedy. That’s mostly because the show’s creators have been criticized for making Han one big stereotype after another: The character speaks with a heavy accent, often doesn’t understand American slang and turns of phrases, and is regularly made fun of for his small stature and clueless nature.

Behind the silly role, however, is Matthew Moy, an actor who, truly, couldn’t be further from who he plays on TV. Moy is very clued into pop culture, which is why we put him through the ringer with the EW Pop Culture Personality Test. As we head toward tonight’s new episode of 2 Broke Girls (9 p.m. on CBS!) — titled “And Too Little Sleep,” which finds Han and Co. helping Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) prepare a huge cupcake order — study up on Moy by hearing a lot about his love for Katy Perry, Steel Magnolias, and (yes, really!) the ceramic statue of Jeri Ryan he has in his living room.

Name a TV show that makes you cry.
Actually, there was an episode of Taxi that was really emotional, and I didn’t expect it because it’s a sitcom. Danny DeVito had a very emotional scene, and it was really great. I didn’t expect that from a comedy. It had a lot of heart to it. I was watching it late at night and he had a really meaty scene.

At what moments do you yell at the TV?
I was thinking about this the other day. When I yell at my TV, it’s usually watching…usually it happens during the election. There’s when I’m watching CNN and MSNBC.

What kind of sitcoms do you watch?
I watch the weirdest things. I watch old episodes of Golden Girls because my mom watches it, so I grew up watching that. Sometimes I watch reruns of Futurama, which is a cartoon and not based in the real world at all. There’s also 3rd Rock from the Sun. It’s really neat to watch the different people interact.

timberlake-myspaceHe’s bringing Myspace back. Scratch that: He’s brought Myspace back.

Justin Timberlake’s much-balleyhooed redesign of the once-popular social network finally went live today.

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Samuel L. Jackson drops f-bomb, Paul McCartney performs with Nirvana's surviving members

Saying last night’s episode of SNL fell short of expectations would be the understatement of the year. Martin Short didn’t disappoint, in fact he was my favorite host of the season. His brand of physical comedy and impeccable comedic timing were refreshing, but he didn’t have adequate material to work with. As expected, the episode was star-studded — complete with cameos from other SNL alums and show favorites — but the celebrity guests acted as background props for the most part instead of contributing to skits. However, every time Paul McCartney took the stage, his tender voice wiped  my memory clean of any mediocre jokes that preceded his stellar performance. READ FULL STORY

Last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was chock full of buxom beauties, bedazzled bras, and Beliebers. The sexiest night on television opened with a bang and kept its momentum alive throughout the show thanks to the musical stylings of Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber.

Here are the top 10 moments of the night: READ FULL STORY

A plea for 'Saturday Night Live' and Jamie Foxx: No more musical monologues!

Next week, Saturday Night Live will return after a two-week hiatus with a new episode starring Oscar winner Jamie Foxx. As anyone who spent all of 2005 humming “Gold Digger” knows, Foxx is a talented double threat — he showed off his pipes in 2006′s Dreamgirls, not to mention on four studio albums of original tunes.

Which means that in at least one sketch — and probably several — Foxx is going to sing. He’ll likely croon for the first time in his monologue, warbling a goofy song about, I don’t know, Quentin Tarantino’s eccentricities or how it happens to be December.

Cue Liz Lemon’s epic eyeroll.

Of the eight regular episodes of SNL that have aired this season so far, five have kicked off with a musical monologue — six, if you count the striptease dance number Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed in September.  READ FULL STORY

Real life 'Disturbia': Rihanna Instagrams photo with Chris Brown

rihanna-brown-instagram

Let the hand-wringing and disapproval commence! Last night, Rihanna posted this photo to Instagram, along with the following caption: “@f—yopictures i don’t wanna leave!!! Killed it tonight baby!!!”

@f—yopictures is Chris Brown, who performed in Frankfurt yesterday — and who is still posting filter-distorted shots to Instagram despite having deleted his Twitter page last weekend. Brown’s Instagram profile’s tagline: “The capacity to over think also emmobilizes us with fear… Therefore, being fearless can assure ur sanity!”

Okay — but where does “making up words” fall on the sanity spectrum?
