We may never find out if Big Foot exists, who Carly Simon wrote “You’re So Vain” about, or whether Leonardo DiCaprio is dreaming at the end of Inception. But there is one pop culture mystery which might be cleared up in the near future. For decades, it has been rumored that Atari buried millions of copies of its E.T. videogame at a landfill site in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Now, the Alamogordo city council has given the Los Angeles-based Fuel Entertainment permission to search the site for a film project and find out if one of the videogame industry’s most enduring myths is fact or fiction. “The dumping of the E.T. cartridges has always been one of the biggest urban legends in videogame history,” says Mike Burns, cofounder and CEO of Fuel Entertainment’s parent company, Fuel Industries. “We wanted to find out what’s really in there and put an end to the rumors.”

Cheyenne Jackson must have a busy haberdasher, because the man has been known to wear a lot of different hats: scene-stealing TV actor (30 Rock, Behind the Candelabra), theater thespian (Xanadu, Finian’s Rainbow), and — especially these days — musician.
Jackson’s set to release his debut solo album I’m Blue, Skies tomorrow, and you can watch the video for his single “She Pretty, She Lies,”co-penned by Sia, the singer (“Breathe Me”) and songwriter (Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” Christina Aguilera’s “You Lost Me”) exclusively here.
The clip, helmed by Peter Tokay, features a fully clothed CJ getting all wet, getting all drunk, and getting all destructive — and doing it all backwards, no less!
Watch Jackson’s reverse-chronology “She Pretty, She Lies” video below:
Previewing this week's 'Entertainment Weirdly' show on Sirius XM: Miley, 'Maniac,' and a one-ton musical monkey
What do Miley Cyrus’ latest video, Elijah Wood’s just-out slasher flick Maniac, and Sarah McLachlan’s decision to write the songs for a stage musical of King Kong have in common? That’s right, they all feature in my forthcoming YA novel Harry Everdeen and the Terrifying Acid Trip (soon to be a major motion picture and/or massive law suit). But they are also all subjects which will be discussed in this week’s edition of Entertainment Weirdly, which is broadcast on Entertainment Weekly Radio, Sirius XM 105, at 1pm ET this afternoon.
Join myself, Darren Franich, and Keith Staskiewicz as we ruminate on the latest strange pop culture shenanigans, recommend a range of oddball malarkey, and mark the release of World War Z by playing an all-zombie movie version of our Christmas present must-have in-the-making game Death Jam.
mind can even digest and understand” — but her inflated sense of self-regard has nothing on her pal Kanye West, who compares himself variously to Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs, Rick Owens, Walt Disney Henry Ford, and Anna Wintour in a new 4,600-word interview with the New York Times. At one point, West even says that he and he alone is the nucleus of all society.
This shouldn’t exactly come as a shock; after all, the guy did name his new album Yeezus. And perhaps more importantly, West is hyper-aware of the vital role arrogance plays in his “brand”: “The idea of Kanye and vanity are like, synonymous,” he tells the Times during a brief moment of self-awareness.
That being said, the interview really is a breathtaking study in the art of narcissism — regardless of whether it’s utterly serious or at least partially manufactured. Prepare yourself for the breakfast of champions, e.g. reading the piece’s seven most egomaniacal quotes — as well as one that may just endear the guy to you after all.
On hard work, maturity, and never, ever holding a grudge:
“I was on the junior [basketball] team when I was a freshman, that’s how good I was. But I wasn’t on my eighth-grade team, because some coach — some Grammy, some reviewer, some fashion person, some blah blah blah — they’re all the same as that coach[...]I’m letting it out on everybody who doesn’t want to give me my credit.”
Because the Internet, that’s why! Behold the fourth episode of a webseries called “Cosplay Piano,” in which 19-year-old pianist Sonya Belousova dresses up as your costumed favorites and plays new arrangements of their iconic themes. She’s already tackled the worlds of The Walking Dead, Batman, and Superman — so naturally, the universe of HBO and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones was next.
And though the clip opens with a facsimile of Daenerys jamming in the desert, there’s more to it than just the Khaleesi. In the span of just three and a half minutes, “Cosplay Piano” will take you from the Red Waste (where Dany tickles ivories and dragons fly) to a brothel in King’s Landing (where Tyrion grins at Shae, and the women are surprisingly clothed) to the tundra north of the Wall (where the video’s version of Jon Snow could really use a new wig). Guess a sprawling series deserves a sprawling video tribute.
Most of you probably first met Tom Hardy in 2010’s Inception, unless you’re an avid consumer of British cinema, in which case perhaps you recognized him from 2008’s Bronson. Then again, a select few of you Trekkies might even remember him from 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. Regardless, now almost all of you identify him as Bane from 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises. But a few years from now, we might all be calling him Sir Elton.
With five movies in the works for 2014 (including a highly anticipated Mad Max reboot) and a new rumor going around that he’s being looked at to play Elton John in the upcoming biopic Rocketman, Hardy is hard at work on becoming one of Hollywood’s most recognizable actors/puppy-lovers. And believe it or not, Bane might just be the perfect choice to play one of music’s most iconic performers. Here’s why: READ FULL STORY
After last night, The Voice is officially on it’s way to the Top 6 and quickly falling into the all-too-familiar pattern of last season. With the shocking elimination of Team Adam’s Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill — both of whom my colleague Adam Carlson and I had pegged for the final four — America has once again sided with Team Blake. Deja vu, anyone? READ FULL STORY
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's emotional performance of 'Over You' pays tribute to tornado victims -- VIDEO
All the performances on last night’s Voice results show were dedicated to the victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes, but no performance struck a chord with the audience quite like the first one of the night — Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s stripped-down acoustic version of Lambert’s hit “Over You.”
Many Voice fans know the song after Cassadee Pope’s breakthrough performance last season, but it was originally written by Shelton and Lambert in memory of his deceased brother. Last night, it reached a much larger number of people in the couple’s home state. Watch the moving performance below. READ FULL STORY
