Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and its residents tell you how to get to Sesame Street -- VIDEO

Warning: The following video will make you grin uncontrollably.

Late Night‘s occasional “classroom instruments” videos — in which Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and special guests perform popular songs accompanied only by woodblocks, toy xylophones, and the like — are generally pretty great. For pure joy value, though, none of the previous clips can compare to this one — which features Fallon and his band performing Sesame Street‘s theme song with Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, and the rest of that show’s principal cast of muppets.

They’re counted in by The Count. Partway through, Cookie Monster devours his instrument. The Roots’ Black Thought does a Sesame Street-themed rap, assisted by Abby Cadabby. This video is, in short, awesome, and you should watch it immediately.

Miley Cyrus covers 'Rolling Stone': Her 6 best quotes

Miley Cyrus has a message for the haters, by way of a Teddy Roosevelt quote:  “So THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT.”

The phrase, meaning you can’t please everyone, is tattooed on her arm. This is just one of many revelations in the you-know-you’re-going-to-read-the-heck-out-of-it Miley Cyrus Rolling Stone cover story, now available in full online. (Yes, her tongue is out on the cover; no, there aren’t any hammers in sight.) No surprise, the girl who first got big just bein’ Miley isn’t offering any apologies.

Instead, throughout the interview, she seems aware that this feature is a big moment for her and how she wants to present herself going forward; she seems eager to cram as many “bad gurrl” experiences into the piece as she can, from getting a tattoo to clubbing to sky diving. She even mentions support from fellow rabble-rouser Kanye West, who apparently is a fan. Below, read the best Miley Cyrus quotes (stay for the unexpected Steve Carell shout-out!) from the story:

Cher slams Miley Cyrus, but feels 'ashamed' for her comments

Reactions to Miley Cyrus at the VMAs: People are still having them!

Earlier this week, we heard what both Britney Spears and Paula Patton had to say about the performance. (Spoiler alert: They think she’s just being Miley.) But while both those stars were shrugging their shoulders, another music legend was sharpening her claws.

“I’m not old-fashioned,” Cher told USA Today in an interview published Tuesday. “She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked the house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl.’ It just wasn’t done well. She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”

Britney Spears defends Miley Cyrus on 'GMA', plus 4 other things we learned -- VIDEO

Britney Spears gave America a piece of her this morning…and it was awesome.

Spears stopped by Good Morning America to announce a residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, but that wasn’t all viewers learned during her quick sit down with Sam Champion. Spears, who rarely does interviews, was her goofy self, a happy sight for fans. She even participated in a lightning round of questions about her famous past. What did viewers learn? Read on for her thoughts on Miley Cyrus (Spears will guest on her upcoming album), the “Oops…I Did it Again” dance, and even a little bit of intel about one Mr. Justin Timberlake. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel reveals he's behind 'twerk fail' viral video

Reason number 259,467 you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet.

Last week, the Internet collectively freaked out over a YouTube video that showed a girl twerking against a doorway, only to be knocked over into a table (Paging Chris Farley!) and setting herself on fire. Uploaded Tuesday, it had been viewed over 9 million times. But for everyone who thought the ‘unbelievable’ video was a bit too, well, unbelievable: You were right. Jimmy Kimmel was behind it.

Kimmel broke the news on his show last night, explaining that the girl is actually a stuntwoman, they filmed the video two months ago, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Miley Cyrus and the VMA Twerk Heard Round The World. He then played a montage of news anchors showing the not-at-all-confirmed-to-be-real video.

Internet, meet the new Harlem Shake. 'What does the fox say?' -- VIDEO

Note to Seth Meyers: This is how you promote a talk show.

Norwegian talk show hosts Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker have released the below music video, “The Fox,” as promotion for the new season of their show I Kveld med YLVIS, and if this addictive, silly video is any indication, you’re going to need to order a box set of the program stat.

To say much about this incredible song/music video would spoil the surprise, but let’s just say that the viral-ready tune, first discovered by Pleated-Jeans, combines the sexiness (?) of “Blurred Lines,” with the WTF-factor of “Get Lucky” and adds a little Old MacDonald (“What does the fox say?”) for good measure. It’s a song of summer that’s perfect for adults who love ragers and small children who enjoy animals. Basically, picture a Werewolf Bar Mitzvah that Mokiki crashed.

Stop whatever you’re doing; nothing is more important than checking out your new favorite music video below: READ FULL STORY

Boy Band Battle -- Day 1: Which group has the best appearance?

Between NSYNC reuniting (however briefly) and the One Direction documentary hitting theaters this weekend, EW’s PopWatch is getting a serious wave of nostalgia—and the urge to revive one of the most important debates: What is the all-time greatest boy band?

Any good fan girl (or guy!) knows this debate is about so much more than just the hits. There’s things like group appearance, harmonies, music videos and dance moves to consider. For the next week, each day all the bands listed below will be competing in various categories. While an EW writer will be advocating for each, the final decision is up to you. Each day a band wins the vote, they’ll receive a point. At the end of a week, whichever band has the most points will be declared EW’s Ultimate Boy Band. Today’s category? Best Appearance.

On the scene: One Direction fans wait days outside for entrance to 'Today' concert

Note to morning shows: You don’t want to mess with fangirls.

Hundreds of excited teenage girls have spent the past few days camped out at Rockefeller Center in New York City, eager to snag a spot at One Direction’s Today show concert taking place Friday morning. But when EW went to check out the scene around 5:00 p.m. Thursday night, the rain-drenched girls (and their moms!) at the front of the line weren’t exactly upbeat. The problem? Due to the out-of-control nature of so many people being contained in groups by metal rails, the guards seemingly got overwhelmed and had just given out wristbands (which gives the wearer VIP, front-of-the-crowd access) to fans who, according to some, had cut in line. The only thing worse than waiting out for two-plus nights to see Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson in person? Waiting out in the rain – and then not getting in.

A rep for the Today show clarified in an email to EW, “As we’ve done in the past, due to the tremendous response from fans, we handed out wrist bands on a first-come first-serve basis to give fans a break from having to wait in the line.  We needed to use this process per NYPD’s recommendation to alleviate street crowding.  We understand how exciting this is for fans and we want to accommodate as many as possible on the Plaza.  We apologize to those who did not receive wristbands, but hope they can stay and enjoy the show.”

“I love my daughter, but if I told you what I did to get here, you’d think I was crazy,” said visibly frustrated Marjory Pante, a mom to two excited teens. “I drove two hours from Cape May County [New Jersey], got on a bus, sat on a bus for two hours, booked a hotel room to stay overnight so my girls could take a shower before the show, and they weren’t even 300 people deep into this line and people cut the line today and got wristbands. … My daughters love [One Direction] and it’s breaking my heart that they spent the night out here, they’re probably going to end up sick. I turned down a job interview to come here, so I could have had a job! I’m unemployed and been trying to get a job and I had to turn down a job interview to come and do this.” READ FULL STORY

'Modern Dads' premiere: Who's a pretty prince?

Dads raising kids — what a concept. We shall put them on TV, stat! said the network exec who uncovered this rare species. I will not be surprised if a significant chunk of the massive Duck Dynasty viewing audience sticks around for an extra half hour of feel-good scripted reality fare each week with Modern Dads. The series follows four stay-at-home fathers in Austin, Texas who like their offspring but love checking their fantasy leagues on their phones instead of watching their kids at the park. Sure, it’s a cliché, but I know zero people who cannot either relate to this scenario directly or get an eye-rolly chuckle out of it. It’s not rocket science. It’s just a princess party. A lot of people are into those too!

Highlights of the Modern Dads premiere included a 6-year-old named Joopsy, the promise of “baby wrestling” later in the season, and men who are genuinely comfortable taking a backseat in stereotypical “machoism” to their very attractive, mucho-money-making wives. On the downside, there’s the general awfulness of swingin’ bachelor Stone and a bizarrely shoehorned-in plot in which he’s peer-pressured into having a vasectomy, then decides against it after meeting a woman (who was clearly an actress) at the supermarket counter. The show’s not as hokey as NBC’s failed Guys With Kids, but it does feel almost like a badly scripted documentary of Guys With Kids in production.

Ashton Kutcher urges teens to work hard, 'always be sexy' -- VIDEO

After 35 years of hair-flipping, punking, and furious tweeting, Ashton Kutcher has decided to pass his accumulated wisdom on to the next generation.

His big speech came at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, which honored That ’70s Show‘s ex-star with something called the Ultimate Choice prize — a badge Kutcher characterizes as “the old guy award.” (Past recipients Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Taylor Swift might beg to differ — but 35 is like 350 in Hollywood years, so.)

Maybe going into what could be Two and a Half Men‘s final season is making him feel introspective; maybe he’s still channeling Steve Jobs.

Whatever the reason, Kutcher took this opportunity first to come clean about something that’s been making him “feel like a fraud” for the past 16 years — “Ashton is my middle name. My first name’s Chris.” GASP!! — and then to share three important things he learned back when he was still known as Chris.

“The first thing is about opportunity,” Kutcher began. The second thing is about being sexy.” [Pause for squeals] “And the third thing is about living life.”
