Prince releases full-length 'New Girl' song featuring Zooey Deschanel -- VIDEO

We first fell for Prince’s duet with Zooey Deschanel, “FALLINLOVE2NITE,” when they performed a portion of the song on the actresses’ Fox comedy, New Girl, back in February. (We’re guessing the 25.8 million other people who also watched the post-Super Bowl episode did, too.)

The Purple One’s perfectly understated guest role was a gift for fans, but now he has delivered the icing on the cake: On Friday, Prince’s “funk ‘n’ roll” band, 3RDEYEGIRL, tweeted out the link to the full-length track. The soundtrack to the rest of your weekend can be found here:

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs defend Lindsay Lohan's '2 Broke Girls' performance

So it turns out all of those rumors about Lindsay Lohan being a nightmare to work with on the set of 2 Broke Girls were just that — rumors.

Stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs took to Twitter on Friday to refute claims that guest star Lohan was a disaster and repeatedly screwed up her lines during a taping on Wednesday. The reports stemmed from an unimpressed witness who claimed: ”[We, the audience members] are very familiar with every single one of Lindsay Lohan’s lines and can repeat them all verbatim to you because we heard them so many times last night. There is not a member of the audience who couldn’t do a better job than Lindsay Lohan did last night.”

Jimmy Kimmel pranks wannabe music snobs at SXSW -- VIDEO

SXSW-KIMMEL-PRANK.jpg

Hipsters, beware — music festival-goers are becoming a favorite target of Jimmy Kimmel.

In front of an audience at SXSW in Austin last night — Jimmy Kimmel Live has been taping from the festival since Monday — the late-night host noted that “people who come to music festivals pride themselves on knowing who the new acts are, even if they don’t know who the new acts are.” To prove his point, Kimmel sent a “Lie Witness News” camera crew into the streets of Austin to ask music fans their thoughts on totally made up artists, including Contact Dermatitis, Neil Patrick Harassment, female rappers Heavy Flow, and a whole slew of geeky Game of Thrones-inspired bands, including Daenerys Targaryen and the Dragon Ponies.

'Reign' react: Thrust into darkness

You guys, the King just humped a woman out of a window! He literally humped someone to their death. That just happened, and I don’t know how to feel about it. Honestly, that was the second greatest hump I’ve ever seen, behind this one. Now, let me attempt to write this react through my tears of laughter. READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan: Appetite for self-destruction

Oprah’s OWN drew solid ratings for the premiere of its Lindsay Lohan docuseries. Are we watching for the wrong reasons? This column originally appeared in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The most honest words uttered in the debut of Lindsay, the new and deeply problematic docuseries about the troubled actress, came not from the maniacally self-absorbed Lohan or the show’s benefactor, Oprah Winfrey. Rather, they came from a fan on the street who was glibly effusive when asked to speak on behalf of the people. “I’m a big fan of Lindsay Lohan,” he said with a happy grin on his face, “both as an actress and as a media sensation.” Isn’t it entertaining when a young woman is so misguided and bent on destruction that she lands in rehab for a sixth time? As a culture we seem to value Lohan, and countless women before her, as little more than cheap spectacle, marveling at how far former good girls can fall from our manufactured pedestals.

The show was not without its odd voyeuristic pleasures. Show business has never looked so unglamorous as when Lohan’s smartly dressed assistant, whose former bosses range from Sean Astin to Prince, was tasked with packing up her floor-to-ceiling-stuffed hotel room. Earlier, Lohan’s storage unit of expensive junk was the size of an abandoned airplane hangar. I’m convinced that if this woman jettisoned 95 percent of her belongings and spent an anonymous year reading novels and going to meetings, she might just have a shot at enjoying her 30s. Instead she’s starring on a reality series whose viewers spent an inordinate amount of Twitter bandwidth snickering about the amount of side boob she exposed during the hour. READ FULL STORY

Black Simon and Garfunkel are back, this time singing Lorde's 'Royals' -- VIDEO

Black Simon and Garfunkel made their first appearance on The Tonight Show on Wednesday, performing Lorde’s “Royals” with their special brand of folky, Uptown hep.

Frequent guests on host Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night, the duo — made up of The Roots’ Questlove and “Captain” Kirk Douglas  – were a special request out of the Fallon’s Suggestion Box.

Our only suggestions: These segments should be a little longer, and Tonight needs to let us know where to pick up that Black Simon and Garfunkel box set.

'Survivor: Cagayan:' And the eliminated contestant is...

What Claire Holt's absence could mean for 'The Originals' (and 'Vampire Diaries') -- POLL

The verdict is in: Claire Holt is no longer a series regular on The Originals, a.k.a one of the three Originals that the show is named after, and the only female member of the family, is gone. And to be honest, I’m so surprised by this news that I have barely had time to formulate any sort of real emotion to attach to it.

My first instinct is that it’s a bad move. There were only three living Originals to begin with, and to get rid of one of them is just trimming the possibilities in terms of story. And although I will admit that I find the Klaus-Elijah relationship most entertaining, I do think it’s nice to have another lens through which we can look at these siblings, and that’s what Rebekah was. However, I’m not going to lie — there were times when she was on The Vampire Diaries that I wanted her gone. She was a highly emotional character and could be a lot to take in.

Basically, what you can gather from all of this is that I’m a little scared and a bit skeptical, but I’m putting my faith in this show. Do I think it can exist without Rebekah? Yes. Do I know what that will look like? No, hence the skepticism. Also, I was really into the Rebekah-Marcel dynamic, so if she is going off to get her happy ending, I’m sad that it isn’t with him. I don’t know. This all just feels weird to me. But if it’s something the writers knew was coming and therefore planned for, then I’ll trust them.

But what does this mean for the show? READ FULL STORY

'The Originals' react: Chapter 2(000)

I have two words for you all: Baby Mikaelsons! How adorable were the accented little ones in those flashbacks?! I’m pretty positive there’s nothing better, though I’m still not sure why Elijah’s had an Australian accent, but never the mind! This episode was all about the three siblings, their 1,000-year story thus far, and where they go from here. Let’s dive in. READ FULL STORY

Seth Rogen and Jimmy Kimmel find romance in 'True Detective 2' trailer -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel’s never been one to pass up the opportunity to kiss Seth Rogen — and with the ending of True Detective‘s first season, he realized that such an opportunity was within his reach.

As fans of the show know, neither Matthew McConaughey nor Woody Harrelson will be back for the HBO show’s second season, which leaves the door open for some newcomers. Enter Rogen and Kimmel.

In Kimmel’s Austin-set trailer for True Detective 2, Rogen takes on the McConaughey-inspired, beard-ridden role of a man who once ate an entire Cosco-sized bottle of Tylenol PM. Meanwhile, Kimmel is the cleaned-up partner who can’t stop thinking about the person who once defaced a frog mural. Together, the cops enjoy quoting Cher and singing “Time After Time.” Oh, and kissing, obviously.

Watch Kimmel’s trailer for True Detective 2 below:
