Merriam-Webster officially gives 'catfish' a new definition

Max and Nev are changing the world, one fake profile at a time. And now their work is more legitimate than ever. Why? Because the Merriam-Webster dictionary says so.

A catfish is no longer just “a type of fish that has a large head and long thin parts that look like a cat’s whiskers around its mouth.” According to Merriam-Webster, there’s another definition for the word, one that “refers to a person who sets up a false social networking profile for deceptive purposes.” READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' season premiere

Chris-Harrison.jpg

Welcome to another season of The Bachelorette. Feels like we’ve been away for a while and it always feels good to be back. While I’m excited to be back, this season begins on a rather somber note. As you all know by now, a few weeks after he left the show, one of our cast members and our friend, Eric Hill, died in a tragic accident. You will see in the coming weeks how we have chosen to deal with this on the show. I believe in my heart that we have handled this with compassion and respect for Eric’s memory and his family and friends. I’m glad we started the show by dedicating the season to him. As you will see, he was a bright light that you couldn’t help but be drawn to. He will be missed. (For more information about Eric Hill, you can visit gowitheric.com.)

The last few seasons I’ve found the best way to deal with this first episode and the arrivals is to kind of bullet point the highs and lows. So let’s get to it! READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' season finale: Talk about it!

With one hour to go until we bid farewell to Cristina Yang — on the East Coast, at least — we invite you to chat about the episode here. Because it’s not fun to cry alone.

Oh, and to be clear, we will definitely be crying. After all, what would you do when saying goodbye to a friend? To Your Person?

If Twitter is more your thing, make sure you follow EW’s Grey’s Anatomy live tweet during the East Coast broadcast of the episode.

And come back to EW later for Samantha Highfill’s full recap.

Nobody in this baseball stadium can resist 'Careless Whisper' -- VIDEO

Sometimes, you just need to dance. And as Deadspin pointed out, that applies to everyone, particularly baseball fans.

Let’s just say that when Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick decided to use Wham!’s “Careless Whisper” as his walk-up song, there’s absolutely no way he could’ve anticipated the response. Or maybe he did, and we all owe him a big thank you.

First, see below for Sean Doolitte’s all-too-subtle head bob: READ FULL STORY

This Week's Cover: Danny McBride grills the Black Keys in our Summer Music Preview issue

EW-COVER1312.jpg

We here at Entertainment Weekly like to think of our jobs as highly specialized. (Not just anyone can push that little voice-recorder button while simultaneously asking questions and nodding, wisely, you know.) But when the Black Keys said they wanted to be interviewed by Danny McBride, how could we refuse? After all, the platinum-selling, Grammy awards-collecting rock duo just released their eighth studio album, Turn Blue, and will be dominating festivals and headlining arena shows from Croatia to Cleveland this summer. We asked McBride, 37 — so memorable as egomaniacal pitcher Kenny Powers on HBO’s late, lamented Eastbound & Down and as himself in last year’s star-packed apocalyptic meta-comedy This Is the End — to kick off our Summer Music Preview issue by manning the tiny microphone.

'Funny or Die' spoofs Sofia Coppola's 'The Little Mermaid' -- VIDEO

Sofia Coppola’s The Little Mermaid may be nowhere near release yet – but Funny or Die’s spoof of the upcoming movie could be a pretty accurate predictor of what it’ll be like. (Or at least, what we hope it’ll be like.)

Coppola, director of Lost and Translation and The Bling Ring, is working on a live-action adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. Many have joked that the film will feature the hipster version of Disney’s Ariel; Funny or Die made this joke a reality in a video that stars AnnaSophia Robb as a cutting-edge Ariel and American Horror Story’s Evan Peters as a cigarette-smoking Eric.

This 'Grey's Anatomy' tribute to Cristina and Meredith will make you cry -- VIDEO

If you have A Person, once had A Person, or ever lost A Person, the following video might make you weep for your BFF.

Frankly, Meredith and Cristina are one of the best friendships on TV. (I’m happy to debate that, if you disagree. Also, you’re nuts!) And as Sandra Oh prepares to bid farewell to the series, fans of the pleasantly sardonic pair will likely enjoy this walk down memory lane — even if you’re not a happy, glowy person. READ FULL STORY

Bryan Cranston is the one who badonkadonks on 'Tonight' -- VIDEO

Bryan Cranston doesn’t know what a badonkadonk is.

The Breaking Bad star, who’s currently playing President Lyndon Johnson in Broadway play “All the Way,” went on The Tonight Show Monday and played a game of “Word Sneak” with Jimmy Fallon. Each one was challenged to sneak five words into conversation — including “badonkadonk,” a term that Cranston butchered before turning to the audience and mouthing, “I don’t know what that is!”
