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.

From Michael Bay to Eminem, here are creators who've (sort of) apologized for their work

When you create something for public consumption, you’re putting yourself in a very fragile position. For example, creating a popular television show means handing your beloved characters over to the world for weekly scrutinizing. Then again, it also means handing them over for weekly adoration. But no matter how beloved a show, movie, album, or book might be, no creator is perfect. And by default, no creator’s work is perfect.

That being said, there are few times in the world of pop culture where a creator has come forth and apologized for a large piece of work. Do rappers often have to apologize for certain lyrics? Yes. Are there controversial moments in television episodes that get addressed immediately? Of course. But looking back at an entire season of television or a film and saying “sorry” to fans is a rarity in this business. And in honor of Aaron Sorkin’s recent apology to fans of The Newsroom, we’ve rounded up some other notable apologies. And you know what? We’re not sorry about it.

Justin Bieber gets booed at the Juno Awards

Have Canadian fans stopped Beliebing? It certainly seems that way, given their reaction to the Biebs at this year’s Juno Awards.

After beating out the likes of Celine Dion, Robin Thicke, Arcade Fire, and many others to win the Juno Fan Choice Award, Bieber’s name received a mix of cheers and boos when he was announced as the winner. Sadly, or perhaps happily, Bieber himself was not there to witness the booing and/or defend himself. Then again, his absence might be the very reason why some fans finally decided they were ready to take a stand against him.

Watch the booing below:

Throwback Thursday: Did you ever eat Spice Girls pizza? (And other memorabilia!)

In my lifetime, there have been a handful of big boy bands, but there was only ever one girl band that reached the same level of extreme stardom: The Spice Girls!

When I was young, the Spice Girls were everything. On the playground at school, everyone would have to decide which Spice Girl they wanted to be. Inevitably, someone would fight over who would be Baby Spice, and the game would be ruined. But then you’d go home, pop in your CD (or was it still a cassette tape back then?), and learn every single dance move to “Stop,” which I might still remember (Spoiler: I do).

And after Spice World hit theaters in 1997, things only got bigger. For starters, I wanted nothing more than to live on that bus. But in the realm of reality, I remember owning the Spice Girls-branded lollipops that Baby Spice enjoyed in the film, and my brother even bought me my very own pair of Skechers platform sneakers. The Spice Girls were more than a band; they were a brand. And years later, that’s still true. Confessional time: My college roommates and I might have dressed up as the Spice Girls for Halloween, and it’s very likely that I spent $60 on a pair of ridiculously high platform boots. And yes, I still own Spice World on DVD.

All of this is to say that the Spice Girls brand will never die. But today, we want to reminisce about when it was at its height. And Posh Spice Victoria Beckham is here to help us. READ FULL STORY
