The Kennedy Center Honors aired Sunday night, and while we’re still waiting for someone to put Snoop Dogg’s portion of the tribute to honoree Herbie Hancock on YouTube — he had the black-tie crowd standing and chanting! — some highlights have surfaced. Watch a few below from the tributes to Shirley MacLaine, Billy Joel, and Carlos Santana. READ FULL STORY

The gods of love giveth (maybe), and the gods of love taketh away (also maybe).
Just when we were finally recovering from the news of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s potential reunion, Snoop Lion has rocked our worlds by insinuating that professional twerker Miley Cyrus and her fiance Liam Hemsworth are officially kaput.
The name-changing rapper recently collaborated with Cyrus on “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” a single Snoop says is about “change, turnaround, and you know, just going through things.” What kind of things, specifically? “I can’t speak for her, you know what I’m saying, but I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists,” he told HuffPost Live yesterday. “I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career.”
First let’s clear the air: Snoop Dogg now goes by Snoop Lion. His self-reinvention, the result of his recent adoption of Rastafari and reggae music, is chronicled in the appropriately titled documentary Reincarnation, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. At the press conference for that film, the reborn rapper behind “Gin and Juice” took the opportunity to voice his eloquent support for President Obama.
“Let me begin, Obama for four more years, man,” Snoop said. “Bush f—-d up for eight years, so, I mean, you gotta at least give [Obama] eight years. He cleaned half the s–t up in four years, realistically. It ain’t like y’all gave him a clean house. Y’all gave him a house where the TV didn’t work, the toilet was stuffed up – everything was wrong with the house.”
The rest of Snoop’s enlightened political commentary touched on Osama bin Laden–“He knocked down our most hated, the most wanted, the one who had our terror on orange or red or whatever color it was on – he went and found him, the one Bush couldn’t seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away in the dead of night and all that”–and Bill Clinton’s speech at the DNC–“You heard what Clinton said. You loved Clinton, didn’t you?”
Snoops remarks present a stark contrast to Nicki Minaj’s momentous support for Mitt Romney. But President Obama, for his part, doesn’t really care about Nicki’s statement, and odds are he respond to this endorsement from Snoop.

American Idol‘s next season could feature both a dawg and a Dogg — er, Lion. According to the AP, a certain recently renamed rapper would love to join Fox’s biggest reality show: “I’ll do American Idol,” Snoop said in an interview this week.
A healthy infusion of Doggy Fizzle Televizzle could be just what AI needs to shake things up — but before The Doggfather secures his spot, he’ll have to beat out some pretty fierce competition.
In what’s shaping up to be the New Year’s Eve of animated movies, DreamWorks Animation has announced its cast for the upcoming Ryan Reynolds-voiced movie Turbo, and it’s a doozy.

Jackson. READ FULL STORY
Last night’s Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump had its highs (Snoop Dogg) and its lows (The Situation). The Jersey Shore star got in trouble early when a joke about fellow roaster Whitney Cummings received less laughs than Cummings’ pity clap to break the silence. (Never rely on a grenade joke, Sitch, if you think there’s a chance you might bomb.) From there, it got worse, with plenty of shots of the audience cringing (my favorite being Ice-T after the Situation said it’s okay that Trump keeps firing people because he’s completely let himself go anyway). The crowd booed loudest, however, when the Situation started a joke about Trump’s hot wife. “The best part is, she married you for love … Yep, she loves money.” Roast vet Jeffrey Ross had to jump up, tell the audience to let the Situation do his thing, and bare his own belly. Watch the excruciating and definitely NSFW video below. READ FULL STORY
Larry King's Top 12 Greatest Moments: Marlon Brando, Ross Perot, and Carrie Prejean's non-walkout walkout
Larry King signed off last night, it marked the end of an era. For the past 25 years, Larry King Live has been CNN’s flagship show, a forum for long-form interviews with the famous by choice — politicians, heads of state, movie stars, television personalities, musicians — and the famous by circumstance, often ordinary folks affected by tragedy. King has been there for many of history’s most significant moments these past 25 years, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to 9/11, not just presenting history to us, but witnessing it with us. The greatest moments of Larry King Live, though, the ones many of us remember most, are generally ones without global significance, the ones that show a flawed, funny human being who above all is interested in…simply having a conversation. Here are our picks for Larry King’s 12 greatest moments. Piers Morgan, you have big shoes, er, suspenders to fill. READ FULL STORYWhen
Snoop Dogg returns to his soap home tomorrow when he guest stars on One Life to Live for the second time in two years. Once again he’ll play a version of himself (one with ties to the fictional town of Llanview), perform a new song, and act. Snoop’s said that he grew up watching this show and has a special affinity for Robert S. Woods and his Bo character. That’s probably why the pioneering rapper once again seems to really enjoy being a part of the action. Take a look as Snoop talks Bo and Nora Buchanan (Hillary B. Smith) into letting their son Matthew (Eddie Alderson) go to his concert at Capricorn, the local club.
