It’s closing time, Newbies. Hard to believe 25 episodes have come and gone this quickly. But as a wise man once said, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” What that means for Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, Cece, Schivrang, and… Taylor Swift? Well, you’ll just have to click through. Fair warning for everyone who hasn’t seen tonight’s episode: Stop now because there are SPOILERS AHEAD! READ FULL STORY »

Tonight’s New Girl finale sees a definitive conclusion to the will-they-won’t-they saga between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). “They come to a point where they’re at a crossroads together,” Johnson recently told EW, “and they address it and do something about it.” After last week’s episode, when Jess’s opinionated father (Rob Reiner) returned and put a wrench in the almost-couple’s relationship, there are a lot of questions to answer: “Yes, they’ve got a thing together; yeah, they like each other a lot, and there’s chemistry,” says Johnson, “but is that enough to try dating? Or are they not ready and not the right match?” He teases, “It all comes together at the wedding.”
Before that, though, Johnson sat down to take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. Between talking Michael Jackson jackets and Spike TV’s Bar Rescue, he shared a traumatic childhood memory involving an Oliver Stone film. Click through to find out which film scarred him for life, then scroll down to find out how Johnson’s research for the finale led him to compare a chart-topping boy band to prison inmates.
Rule #1: Don’t bother Tina Fey when she’s minding her own business on the streets of New York City, probably off in search of a delicious sandwich.
Rule #2: Don’t bother her especially if you’re just going to ask about the whole Taylor Swift thing. A recap: Swift wasn’t happy when Fey and Amy Poehler jokingly told the singer to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son at the Golden Globes. When Vanity Fair asked Swift to respond to the quip, Swift replied by quoting Katie Couric quoting Madeleine Albright: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
Fey commented about the brouhaha last week, telling Entertainment Tonight that she was taken aback by Swift’s words: “If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron. I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke.”
And that, it seems, will be her last statement on the matter, given how she reacted to a photographer who tried to bait her into saying something else about Swift a few days ago.
In the battle of the Taylor Swift backup singers, we have a new contender.
Instead of the screams of a goat spliced with Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” it’s the sound of an automatic paper towel dispenser. And I have to say, it gives the goat a run for its money. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY »
Now that the 55th Annual Grammy Awards are hours instead of days away, here are a few last-minute tidbits and predictions…
* Who will open the show? Taylor Swift will open the show and she’ll be singing ”We Are Never Ever Getting Together,” which is nominated for record of the year. There was a lot of debate about the coveted show-opening spot this year. Justin Timberlake, a favorite of Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich, almost usurped the spot in recent weeks, but Swift’s popularity and the less-than-torrid public response to the new Timberlake music tilted the decision back toward the 23-year-old country-pop singer, who was notified about a week ago that she would be the first voice of the night.

“Seacrest, the show must go on.”
-Ryan Seacrest, minutes before midnight in New York, recounting the classic showbiz-ism that Dick Clark used to say to him
To usher in 2013, Ryan Seacrest took the helm on ABC’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. Seacrest was the pre-determined heir, having hosted alongside Clark since 2005. While this was the first New Year’s Rockin’ Eve without Clark, who died in April, the longtime host was everywhere – even in the confetti (seriously, people wrote tributes to Clark that were printed on pieces of the confetti that was dumped on Times Square). Other things happened, sure. Jenny McCarthy lost her voice around 10:15pm. Fergie’s hair transitioned from Veronica Lake to Bamm-Bamm as the evening went on. Seacrest almost got pummeled with the balloons everyone was holding. Carly Rae Jepsen performed in Times Square. Justin Bieber performed in Los Angeles. MC Hammer even showed up out of nowhere. But there was no question: the evening belonged to Dick Clark.
And for that reason, many of the best parts of the broadcast were in the two-hour tribute to Dick Clark, when Jenny McCarthy and Fergie hosted a countdown of the top 30 moments in American Bandstand history, interspersed with live performances, celebrity tributes, and great moments from Rockin’ Eve history.

After a few missteps, Britney Spears is officially back in the running for the title of queen of pop. The songstress is this year’s highest-earning woman in the music industry, according to Forbes.
The pop star earned $58 million between May 2011 and May 2012, thanks to her Femme Fatale platinum album and tour, as well as side endorsements and a fragrance line. READ FULL STORY »
It looks like Taylor Swift is debuting more than just a new sound, she’s also debuting a new, mature look.
The singer teamed up with famed photog Nigel Barker for 8 Hours/Taylor Swift, a limited edition photo book that captures the crooner’s various sides: casual, Hollywood glam and and performer-chic. According to Sony, 8 Hours promises to be “one the most extensive photo collections of Swift published to date.” (You know, not counting the posters on your wall).
A very grown-up-looking Taylor Swift graces the cover of the December issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. Cosmopolitan, known for its raunchy coverlines, went in a different (now reportedly dated) direction for Swift’s cover blurb: “Crazy for a Kennedy.”
And while the cover picture is obviously not super-scandalous, I think it’s the first time the now 22-year-old singer has posed next to the line “Late Night Sex.” She may sing about never growing up, but this is clearly a step in that direction. READ FULL STORY »
