We love the 2000s: EW staffers pick the decade's best pop culture moments

Lady-Marmalade.jpg

Not too long ago, we were all living in the New Millennium, less affectionately known as the age of Y2K. Or if you want to be technical about it, it was the first decade of the 21st century. And during those 10 years, pop culture thrived. Not only did Nipplegate change the way we looked at Super Bowl halftime shows, but things like Laguna Beach made us rethink “reality,” Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight redefined the term “Oscar-worthy,” and Glee revived the television musical.

So with VH1′s I Love the 2000s wrapping up tonight, we thought we’d join in and round up our staff picks for our favorite pop culture moments of the 2000s. Because, hey, we loved those years too: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Louie,' finales, 'Jersey Boys' premiere, and more

For Game of Thrones fans, today is arguably the most important day of 2014, because it marks yet another season finale, and furthermore, it will probably determine Tyrion’s fate.

Here’s what your pop culture calendar looks like this week: READ FULL STORY

Comic Ian Edwards launches Team Coco Records with debut album '100% Half-Assed'

Ian-Edwards

Tuesday marks the release of Ian Edwards‘ new comedy album 100% Half-Assed. It not only marks the first album for Edwards, a stand-up veteran, but it is also the first release on Team Coco Records, the new comedy label launched by Conan O’Brien. It’s the latest in a long line of collaborations between Edwards (who also wrote for 2 Broke Girls last season) and O’Brien. “I think I’m the only stand-up who has been on Conan’s show every time,” says Edwards, who made his debut on the old Late Night show back in 2007. “I did it when he was in New York, and then I did it when he had The Tonight Show, and I’ve done it on TBS. Conan always just wants you to be yourself. So why not go with the people who allow you to represent myself the way I really am?”    READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: '22 Jump Street' in theaters, 'Veep' finale, Jack White's new album, and more

If you thought June would be your time to take a little pop culture break and maybe binge a few shows you’d never gotten to start, we’ve got some bad news: There’s no time for that. Between finales of some of HBO’s strongest shows — Veep and Game of Thrones — award shows, new books, albums, and movies, there’s very little time for you to play catch-up. So maybe save that for next week? Although, we make no promises that you’ll have time.

From The Fault in Our Stars finally hitting theaters to the return of fan-favorite comedy Enlisted, here’s what your pop culture calendar looks like this week: READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' star Lucy Hale calls debut album 'Road Between' a 'timeline' of her life

Lucy Hale may be best known for her role on ABC Family’s wildly successful Pretty Little Liars, but the 24-year-old actress is hoping to make her mark on the world of country music with the release of her debut album, Road Between, set to drop June 3.

EW caught up with the singer to get the scoop on her new album at YouTube Space LA, where Hale spent the day cutting a multi-song session for her own YouTube channel and partaking in a live Q&A with What’s Trending Live host Shira Lazar. READ FULL STORY

The other, less obvious reason you should be watching 'So You Think You Can Dance'

I don’t remember how I got into So You Think You Can Dance, or which episode I watched first. But I do know that after one viewing, I was hooked. As someone who appreciates dances — and thoroughly enjoys a spontaneous dance party — I loved watching the choreographers and contestants work together to craft something memorable. Then there were the judges, whom I immediately enjoyed. But as I continued to watching SYTYCD, the show became about more than just dance. Suddenly, my iPod was benefiting from my addiction as well.

At this point, I’m confident in saying that the hidden reason — my ulterior motive, if you will — for watching this show is the music it’s helped me discover. Every routine needs a song, and if I can give advice to any of you, it’s to stop looking through iTunes for new and exciting artists. Instead, let SYTYCD‘S choreographers do the work for you.

And as for the rest of your week? Well, you’ve got new music, Angelina Jolie in theaters, the return of reality TV favorite So You Think You Can Dance, and more.

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.
