In the latest segment of Carpool Karaoke on the Late Late Show, James Corden picks up a hitchhiking Chris Martin on his way to play the halftime show at the Super Bowl! In it, the boys cover tons on Coldplays songs, including “Paradise,” “Yellow,” and more. They also pay tribute to the late David Bowie‘s by singing his hit song, “Heroes.” But, the 15-minute-long clip isn’t just full of awesome karaoke moments, other highlights include one of the best Mick Jagger impersonations we’ve ever seen, courtesy of Chris! Who knew he was so funny? Let’s not forget to mention that he’s incredibly nice to look at! In the end, they guys have to crash at a motel for the night and their SUV gets stolen, so they decide to finish the ride to San Francisco on a bike while singing some more “Viva La Vida.” Watch the video above — we promise it’ll have you smiling for the whole day!
Whenever I see a show with complicated routines and crazy lighting–either on stage or on TV–my heart immediately goes out to the people in the booth, calling those cues and making sure they don’t mess anything up. So you can imagine how excited and nervous I was for the folks behind-the-scenes at Grease: Live! The show ended up being so much better than anyone could have guessed, and while that has a lot to do with the people acting and singing in front of the camera, it’s the talented individuals behind it who deserves heaps of praise. Associate Director Carrie Havel gave fans a look at what it was like calling those cues with a super cool video of some of the crew during “Grease Lightning”. Prepare to have your minds blown. More »

The commercials might be the only reason why I care to watch the Super Bowl (sorry football fans). That and the halftime show. Well, this year, Drake did a SUPER silly commercial for T-Mobile, a sort of meta, behind-the-scenes thing, if you will. Basically a bunch of execs ask him to change the lyrics to “Hotline Bling,” to include, you know, all the phrases a normal cell phone commercial would include. Like, “…Just add ‘device eligible for upgrade after 24 months.’” Oh lawd. Drake looks super cheesy rocking out to his own song in the video and wears a big shit eating grin. Probably because he made tonnnnnns of money making the commercial. What do you think? Is it funny or just terrible?
Yeah girl! Hollywood Reporter just got word that the kickass Elizabeth Banks will be playing the classic Power Rangers villain, Rita Repulsa, in the upcoming movie based on the ’90s TV show. We all know Eliz has attitude. Her sass reigns supreme as the judge in Pitch Perfect 1 and 2, Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games franchise, and as Lindsay in Wet Hot American Summer. So clearly this casting decision is aces. Dean Israelite of Project Almanac will be directing the film.
But who will play the four rangers? Actually, a bunch of newbs. The recognizable rangers are Becky G and Naomi Scott. More »
I sincerely hope the person at Lego who came up with the idea of partnering with movies and TV shows has gotten the raise of a lifetime, because it’s one of the best things Lego has ever done. Especially with their Lego video games, particularly the Star Wars ones. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming for us all the enjoy on June 28, and to get us excited Lego has released a shot-by-shotish remake of the original Force Awakens teaser. I say shot-by-shotish, because obviously the Lego one involves more comedy. I particularly appreciated the Poe Dameron bit. More »
Kate Winslet had finally admitted what we’ve all been thinking about for years: Jack could have fit on that huge piece of wood at the end of Titanic. The actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday to talk about touching Susan Sarandon’s chest, but Jimmy Kimmel made sure to take the opportunity to call her out about a scene. After he pointed out that she basically let Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character freeze to death in the water, Kate admitted, “I agree. I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door.” YES, THEY COULD HAVE! Does anyone else watch the Titanic, ignorantly thinking that someway, somehow the movie will end differently? And every time, we’re left sobbing our lives away thinking of different ways we could have saved Jack Dawson! Watch the video above — where Kate also speaks of the beautiful friendship she shares with Leo in real life.
Lady Gaga will pay tribute to the late David Bowie, who died Jan. 10, at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. After the legendary singer died last month following his battle with cancer, speculation in the music industry immediately turned to how his songs and influence would be recognized at the awards show. “We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction,” said executive producer Ken Ehrlich in a statement.
