No One Has Been More Eviscerated By Meghan McCain Than Denise, Who Was At Her Wedding

When conservative writer Denise McAllister critiqued Meghan McCain on Twitter, “The View” co-host tweeted back a simple yet biting comment: “you were at my wedding Denise….” Thus, the memes were born. On Monday, McAllister tweeted a link to an article titled “Meghan McCain Says She’s Having ‘Existential Crisis’; Admits Media Will ‘Get Trump Re-Elected.’” Accompanying the link was a question and some mudslinging: “Can someone explain to me the purpose of The View? It seems to me to be a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation.” Can someone explain to me the purpose of The View? It seems to me to be a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation. https://t.co/VMT4LtI1Ir via @ILMForg...

Scott Walker, Experimental Pop Icon, Dies At Age 76

LONDON (AP) — Influential singer, songwriter and producer Scott Walker, whose hits with the Walker Brothers in the 1960s included “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore,” has died. He was 76. The record company 4AD announced the death on Monday. The company said he died Friday afternoon in London. The Walker Brothers enjoyed a string of hits that also included “Make It Easy on Yourself.” Scott Walker later went on to produce numerous songs, movie scores and a number of solo albums. The Ohio-born Walker, who began his career as a session bass player, changed his name from Noel Scott Engel when he joined the Walker Brothers, also relocating to London. The Walker Brothers were hugely popular in Britain at a time when the music scene was dominated by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. They also e...

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Takes Over Top Box Office Spot With $70.3 Million Debut

NEW YORK (AP) — Jordan Peele has done it again. Two years after the filmmaker’s “Get Out” became a box-office sensation, his frightening follow-up, “Us,” debuted with $70.3 million in ticket sales, according to estimates Sunday. “Us” took over the top spot at the box office from “Captain Marvel,” which had reigned for two weeks. The Marvel Studios superhero release slid to second place with $35 million in its third week. But all eyes were on Peele in anticipation of his sophomore effort. In today’s franchise-driven movie world, seldom has a young director been such a draw for moviegoers. “Get Out” opened with $33.4 million domestically before grossing $255.4 million on a $4.5 million budget. “Us” cost $20 million to make, meaning it’s already a huge hit for Peele and Universal Pictures.

We’ll Drive All Night To Watch Celine Dion’s Upcoming ‘Carpool Karaoke’

Now, it looks as if the time has finally arrived for Dion herself to ride shotgun with the host of “The Late Late Show.” Corden on Friday shared a teaser picture of himself and Dion inside a car to Instagram and Twitter. “Oh hey @celinedion,” he captioned the snap. It’s anyone’s guess as to which of Dion’s hits the pair will belt out during the comedy bit ― perhaps “Power of Love,” “I Drove All Night” or “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.” Warm up with some of Dion’s classic tracks below:

An Obsessive’s Guide To Theranos’ Elizabeth Holmes

In 2014, Elizabeth Holmes was the subject of fawning articles touting the ways her innovative blood-testing technology company Theranos could change the world. She was the world’s youngest self-made woman billionaire, her picture printed on magazine covers, as she was hailed as the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. Today she’s more likely to draw comparisons to Fyre Festival’s Billy McFarland or faux heiress Anna Delvey. Since Wall Street Journal reporter John Carreyrou wrote his first investigative piece on Theranos in 2015, exposing the company as a carefully constructed house of cards, people have been fascinated by the woman who dropped out of Stanford and founded the company at age 19. Holmes was the subject of Carreyrou’s best-selling book Bad Blood, ABC News’ podcast “The Dropout” and ...

Here’s Why The Animals Don’t Talk In Disney’s Live-Action ‘Dumbo’

When it comes to Tim Burton’s live-action “Dumbo,” we have to talk about the elephant in the room: Why doesn’t Dumbo talk? Disney’s 1941 animated movie tells the story of an outsider ― a floppy-eared pachyderm who overcomes his haters to take flight, largely with the help of his encouraging (and particularly chatty) rodent BFF, Timothy Q. Mouse. Though Dumbo and his mom, Mrs. Jumbo, aren’t particularly loquacious in the animated film, all the other animals seem to never stop babbling, including the crows, a stork and the obnoxious elephants who try to bring Dumbo down. From the upcoming movie’s trailers and teasers, it became pretty obvious the new cast of human characters, led by Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Michael Keaton and Colin Farrell, would be left to do all the talking. Other than Dum...

Beanie Feldstein Says Queer Representation In ‘Booksmart’ Is ‘Completely Meaningful’

One of the most-buzzed-about movies to emerge from South by Southwest (SXSW) so far is the coming-of-age comedy, “Booksmart,” which marks the directorial debut of Olivia Wilde.  The film, written by Katie Silberman, follows straight-laced, overachieving teens Amy (played by Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) who decide to go out on a bender before they graduate from high school. Amy also happens to identify as gay, and from the sounds of it, “Booksmart” presents that attribute in a nonchalant manner. According to Page Six, the film’s queer-inclusive script held special resonance for Feldstein, who opened up about her own sexuality while speaking at a SXSW panel Monday.  “It was completely meaningful for me to watch the film. My partner is a woman,” said Feldstein, who starred in 2...

Showtime Cancels ‘SMILF’ After Reports Of On-Set Misconduct

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Showtime has canceled the comedy series “SMILF” after two seasons, and ABC studios, which produces the show, has suspended a development deal with its creator, star and executive producer Frankie Shaw. The dual announcements Friday came after a December story in The Hollywood Reporter that detailed allegations of abusive on-set behavior and violations of industry rules by Shaw, who also directs some episodes of the show. Shaw denied the allegations, saying she worked to create a safe environment and it pained her to learn that any cast and crew were uncomfortable on her set. Neither Showtime nor ABC gave a reason for their decisions. “After weighing a variety of factors, Showtime has decided that ‘SMILF’ will not move forward for a third season,” the cable channel’s stat...

People Are Already Calling Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Movie A ‘Horror Masterpiece’

Early screenings for Jordan Peele’s “Us” movie have been underway, and people are already praising the horror film, with many calling it a “masterpiece.” “Us,” which hits theaters March 22, had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin on Friday. It was also screened in cities, including New York City, where some black members of the press were invited to be among the first to see the film.  People have begun taking to social media to praise the movie and to celebrate Peele’s intention to center it around a black family. The film’s cast includes Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly this past December, Peele said that while “this movie is not about race,” he felt putting a black family at th...

R. Kelly Sings ‘I Believe I Can Lie’ In Jimmy Kimmel’s Remix

After mocking the singer, who is accused of sexual abuse, for his banking habits and for bringing a puppy on a helicopter, Kimmel changed gears. “It’s easy to forget that R. Kelly is a musician, and I think it’s important to remind everyone of that,” he said. Cue the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” remix of Kelly’s hit “I Believe I Can Fly,” synced with Kelly’s quotes from the interview with Gayle King. Suffice it to say, the new verse, “I believe I can lie,” isn’t quite as heartfelt as the singer’s original hit. Watch the whole bit above or you can cut to the song at the 3:29 mark.

Gayle King Praised On Twitter For How She Handled R. Kelly’s CBS Interview

After CBS’s Gayle King interviewed R. Kelly in a segment aired on Tuesday, numerous people on Twitter praised the reporter for how she handled the tempestuous R&B singer. Kelly was arrested last month on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving four victims, three of whom say they were minors at the time of the abuse. He has passionately denied these allegations. In the interview, King asked: “Do you still sit here and say you have never been with underage girls? Can you really say that?” Kelly replied that he’s done things in his past that aren’t relevant to the current allegations waged against him and that “the accusations are lies.”  King kept her composure and pressed Kelly, despite outbursts and tears on his part. “I didn’t do this stuff,” he shouts at one point. “This is n...
