Jennifer Love Hewitt is all woman in 'Client List' music video: WATCH!

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Lifetime series The Client List returns March 10, and once again, she’s promoting the show with a sexy music video. This time, the “BareNaked” singer belts out “I’m a Woman” clothed in fringed lingerie. The track was produced by Randy Jackson, the video directed by Matthew Rolston, and the moves, we assume, inspired by Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera (circa Burlesque), and Channing Tatum’s spinning dubstep Magic Mike routine combined with the wet Flashdance number. So, in short, very original!  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

PSY finally learns how to Dougie -- VIDEO

We all knew this time would come: PSY, who introduced the world to Gangnam Style, has finally learned how to Dougie. Dance worlds have collided! The year 2010 and 2012 have become one!

The always-dapper PSY was taught how to Dougie (taught, taught how to Dougie) by New.Music.Live.’s Lauren Toyota during a recent interview. PSY’s swagger and erratic arm gestures weren’t up to par, but his “Doug E. Fresh” move more than made up for it. Let’s just say he added his unique flare to the mix. It looks like supermodel Kate Upton and gymnast Gabby Douglas have some competition for the gold.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson gets surprise birthday serenade from Boston Gay Men's Chorus -- VIDEO

Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet went all out for his costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s birthday on Oct. 22. He arranged for the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus to surprise Ferguson onstage. Over half of the 195-member strong ensemble showed up on roughly three hours’ notice. The surprise starts at 2:30 in the video below. Following “Happy Birthday,” the chorus performs Katy Perry’s “Firework” (3:40). You can see why Ferguson is a recurring guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance — he picks up simple choreography quickly. His reaction at 6:00 when the guys get creative with “come on, let your colors burst” is the real reason to watch this. We won’t spoil it for you.  READ FULL STORY

Watch Sofia Vergara dance at an Emmy afterparty -- VIDEO

Because you didn’t get enough gratuitous shots of Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara during E! red carpet show over the Emmy ceremony itself, TMZ has footage of her celebrating at the HBO afterparty by dancing to Gloria Estefan’s “Conga” while women nearby chanted “Sofia! Sofia!” (Presumably, the men were rendered speechless — or praying that she would suffer another wardrobe malfunction like she had 20 minutes before Modern Family earned its third straight Best Comedy Emmy.)

My favorite part of the video is around 2:30, when the guys playing the conga drums — it’s okay if you don’t notice them until the third time you watch the video — start loosening their ties and taking off their jackets as the music changes to Enrique Iglesias’ “I Like It” and Vergara gets her second wind.

YouTube sensation Psy teaches Britney Spears 'Gangnam Style' -- VIDEO

Even a hitmaker like Britney Spears isn’t immune to the wacky allure of Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” Spears is on record as a fan of the Korean star’s catchy tune and sick dance moves — something that Ellen DeGeneres didn’t miss when the new X Factor judge visited Ellen yesterday afternoon. (Side note: Remember when Ellen was an American Idol judge?)

Soon enough, the host pulled out Psy himself, who proceeded to teach Ellen and Britney how to Dougie the finer points of Gangnam Style. The main takeaway: “Dress classy, and dance cheesy.” Done and done!

By gamely dancing along, Spears proved that she still knows how to move — even in five-inch heels. Check her out:

What movie experience made you like people again?

singin-in-the-rain

We all have stories of movies being ruined by people talking through them in the theater. Today, let’s celebrate that time a movie experience actually restored our faith in humanity.

Last night, I went to see Singin’ in the Rain on the big screen, in honor of the film’s 60th anniversary and the fact that today would have been Gene Kelly’s 100th birthday. I was with a friend who’s also a huge Gene Kelly fan, and I told her we should elbow each other each time one of us begins to tear up from pure happiness. Normally, if I’m planning on writing about a movie, I’ll take notes, but I just wanted to enjoy this. I lost count of how many times we nudged each other. I also couldn’t tell you how many times I got chills, or how many times I looked over and saw my friend grinning larger than ever before (I’ve known her 15 years now), or how many times I thought, how long have I been smiling?

Mariah Carey gets the Nicki Minaj phone call: A very special 'American Idol' dramatization

Rumor has it that new American Idol judge Mariah Carey became infuriated and hung up the phone when producers called to tell her they were in talks with Nicki Minaj to join the season 12 judging panel. Considering a TMZ report is practically fiction, I thought I’d embellish this juicy, totally plausible storyline in the saga of No One Knows WTF Is Going On With Idol (And Do They Care?). It’s one of the summer’s most lukewarm reads!

Thanks to the video for Mimi and Nicki’s classic 2010 collaboration “Up Out My Face,” here’s how I picture this all going down…. READ FULL STORY

Dierks Bentley's 'Country & Cold Cans' EP: Hear 'Back Porch' here -- EXCLUSIVE

Dierks-Bentley

This summer, country singer Dierks Bentley had his 10th No. 1 hit with the footstomper “5-1-5-0,” which has helped keep the crowds rockin’ on his Country & Cold Cans Tour. Inspired by their, let’s call it enthusiasm, and the desire to give college students new music for their end-of-summer parties and fall football tailgates, he paid for studio time himself to record some new tunes. The result is his Country & Cold Cans EP, which includes four new songs — the title track, “Grab a Beer,” “Back Porch,” and “Summer on Fire” – and the radio edit of his similarly suds-soaked current single, “Tip it on Back,” from his album Home. “I think the fans will dig the sound. It’s a little grittier, a little different,” Bentley says. “There’s some hand clips, some beatin’ on things. It’s just fun for me to get a chance to do something different every now and then.”

Listen to our exclusive stream of “Back Porch” below. (Think of it as Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” for people who don’t live near a lake). Then, we asked Bentley to name five of his craziest summer memories. Lucky for us, he documented most of them — including an awesome band vs. crew Braveheart reenactment — in his web series, DBTV. Country & Cold Cans will be released Aug. 21 on iTunes. READ FULL STORY
