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!”

At Thursday night’s Gloria Awards, actress Gabourey Sidibe shared a well-known fact: Cookies will never hurt you.

The American Horror Story star spoke at the annual awards, which also celebrated the Ms. Foundation for Women’s 40th year, and talked about the one question she gets asked too often: “How are you so confident?”

The answer? It has to do with being a jerk, an unsupportive environment growing up, and baking cookies. Read the highlights below:

Andrew Garfield plays 'Spider-Man' theme song on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Andrew Garfield may be no Adele Dazeem (his joke, not ours), but he does have some hidden musical talents. Watch out, Emma Stone!

Garfield went on The Tonight Show Thursday and, after discussing his recent ventures into learning to play guitar, he launched into a performance of the theme song from the 1967 animated Spider-Man TV show. It was, in a word, amazing. (Hey, just like Spider-Man!)
