As you may remember, U2 was scheduled to play a five-day-long stint on The Tonight Show this week. Sadly, those plans had to be scrapped after Bono was in a pretty serious cycling accident in Central Park. Thankfully, Jimmy Fallon had a solution of how to fill the slot while Bono recovers. Fallon does such a spot-on impression of the frontman that if Bono can't actually be at the show, Fallon will just become Bono ... Discuss
Last night, the Memphis Grizzlies pulled off a win over the Houston Rockets. Timberlake tweeted his support of the Grizzlies (well, insomuch as tweeting "Grizzlies" can be a supportive tweet) right before some guyaccused him of being a bandwagon fan. But that guy, James Stendebach, now knows that trolling Justin Timberlake is a steep climb, to be braved by only the surest heart. No sooner had Stendebach accused Timberlake of riding a bandwagon than Timberlake responded with the tweet below—which is what they call, in the Twitter business, getting served. Stendebach tried to back pedal, but he's clearly learned his lesson: what goes around comes around ... Discuss
Just in case getting Songs of Innocence delivered for free to your iTunes library wasn’t enough to get you to listen, U2 has made another big announcement related to their latest album. The band is teaming with a group of well-known street artists who have done murals in Northern Ireland to create Films of Innocence, a series of videos that correlate with songs on the record. You can watch the trailer below. The videos will be made available for purchasing on iTunes in the coming weeks ... Discuss
Below is Charles Manson, one of America's most notorious serial killers, and his bride-to-be, 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton, who goes by "Star." Burton obtained a marriage license last month, and the two hope to tie the knot next month. They'll have to get married in the visiting room of the jail where the 80-year-old Manson is serving a life sentence. "Y'all can know that it's true," Burton told the AP. "It's going to happen. I love him. I'm with him."
Rolling Stone broke the news of Burton's desire to marry Manson last year, when she told them "I'll tell you straight up, Charlie and I are going to get married." However, Manson seemed less certain. "Oh that," he told the reporter. "That's a bunch of garbage. You know that, man. That's trash. We're just playing that for public consumption" ... Discuss
"Do They Know It's Christmas?" may not have quite the time-honored tradition going for it that, say, candy canes do, but it's still a nice gesture. The original song was written by Bob Geldof in 1984 to raise money to fight famine in Ethiopia, and he enlisted talents like Phil Collins, Duran Duran, George Michael, Culture Club, Sting and Paul McCartney to sing it. For the 30th anniversary, Band Aid slightly reworked the tune to focus on Ebola in West Africa, and brought in a whole new batch of stars—like One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Chris Martin, Sinead O'Conner, Bastille and Bono (again!)—to bring it home. You can watch the video below, but if you buy it on iTunes, the proceeds will go help the fight against Ebola in West Africa ... Discuss
