Pearl Jam's known for mixing a handful of staple covers (including Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World") into their marathon set lists, but Saturday night in Milan, Italy they threw in an unexpected number. As Stereogum points out, during an extended rendition of their classic Vs. cut "Daughter," they mixed in a bit of the chorus of "Let It Go," the inescapable, Oscar-winning hit from Disney's Frozen.

In some fan-shot footage (below) you can see the portion of the "Daughter" jam in question.

Daytime Emmys red carpet hosts joke about rape, race, etc.


The 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards online broadcast went off without a hitch, but the red carpet was another story.

The gist is that Brittany Furlan, Lauren Elizabeth, Jessica Harlow and Meghan Rosette, the "social media experts" hired to do the red carpet interviews, had seemingly very little training, preparation or even professionalism during the interviews, making a rape joke about "General Hospital" actor Ryan Paevey (above, left) and asking "The Bold and the Beautiful's" Lawrence Saint-Victor (above, right) what it's like to be a black man on a soap opera these days -- not for any kind of social commentary, but simply because that was the only question they had for him.

Miracle of the Day: An NBC Comedy is Hilarious

Tony Award winning actress Andrea Martin (Second City Television Network (SCTV), My Big Fat Greek Wedding, New York Minute) will star in NBC's midseason family comedy WORKING THE ENGELS.

In this family comedy, created by Katie Ford ("Miss Congeniality," "Desperate Housewives") and Jane Cooper Ford ("Listen Missy," "Material World"), a family of ne'er-do-wells must band together to keep their heads above water when their father and breadwinner passes away, leaving them a mountain of debt.

The Engels must all go to work running Dad's storefront law firm, with one minor problem - daughter Jenna Engel (Kacey Rohl) is the only one who is qualified to practice law. Unfortunately for Jenna, this also means taking on her eccentric relatives as co-workers.

Ceil (Andrea Martin), the self-absorbed and overly dramatic but fiercely protective mother works as the firm's paralegal; Sandy (Azura Skye), a former pill-popper who has who has never worked a day in her life, is the receptionist and first line of defense at the firm; and Jimmy (Ben Arthur), a petty criminal and bad boy who is utterly devoted to his family, is the firm's investigator. Jenna, the youngest sibling and "good one," becomes the unlikely family matriarch, running the law firm and keeping her crazy family together.


It already aired in Canada, but it starts July 10th.

Gary Oldman urges people to 'get over' Mel Gibson's notorious rants in explosive Playboy interview



Fuming Gary Oldman has urged people to 'get over' the Hollywood 'outcast' Mel Gibson's notorious racist rants - insisting: "I think political correctness is crap." The Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes star says Mel is 'all right,' despite the actor's previous use of anti-Semitic and racist epithets - claiming: "We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That's what gets me."

Speaking in an explosive new interview with Playboy, the 56-year-old comes to the defence of both Mel and Alec Baldwin as he said people are 'hypocrites' for not forgiving the pair's transgressions. When asked about the Braveheart star's treatment, he said: "I just think political correctness is crap. That's what I think about it. I think it's like, take a fuckinging joke. Get over it."

Gibson, 58, made anti-Jewish slurs when he was arrested for suspected drink-driving in Malibu in 2006, two years after his film The Passion Of The Christ was criticised for depicting Jews negatively. According to the police report, Gibson made anti-Semitic remarks to the arresting officer, saying: 'Fucking Jews... the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."

Benjy ... knowing it was a lost cause ... threw in the towel this morning -- and accepted the consequences of his bet during a live bit with Perez.

☆Jennifer Lawrence☆ + brother organize party to benefit a child suffering from leukemia



Actress and Kentucky native ☆Jennifer Lawrence☆ along with her brother are doing their part to help a young Louisville girl recover from her battle with leukemia.

Hadley Mercer was diagnosed at only six months old. She recently celebrated her first birthday in the hospital with her parents and two older sisters. Hadley has undergone 20 spinal taps and chemotherapy treatment for months to battle her aggressive cancer. She received a bone marrow transplant in April, and the family has learned the chemo and transplant worked.

Hadley's now in remission, but she's still in the hospital for treatment for complications from the transplant.

There have been some bright spots along the way. In December, Lawrence, who is a family friend, visited Hadley and other children at the hospital.

"She (☆Jennifer Lawrence☆) had to put on a gown and mask and she came in and saw Hadley and gave her a signed poster," said Ashlie Mercer, Hadley's Mother. "It will be cool when Hadley is older."

"She's always had a soft spot for children, and especially sick children, so that was kind of what led to her going down there - help the family," said Ben Lawrence, Jennifer Lawrence's Brother.

Bindi Irwin tells teenage girls to 'cover up'

“I guess for me, because I wear khaki so much — waking up every day at the zoo, you just kind of grab your khaki uniform and you’re pretty much good to go — that when I get out of khaki I like to experiment and see how things go,” she said.

“I suppose the last year or so really I’ve been starting to have some fun and see what I can do with make-up and wardrobe and be a little bit of a girlie girl.

Icona Pop debut Actual Song of Summer™ "Get Lost"

In “I Love It,” the Swedish duo Icona Pop already have one massive, sweeping, fired-up, zero-subtlety international smash to their name, and now it at least seems possible that they’ll have another. The duo debuted a monstrously catchy new single called “Get Lost” on Swedish radio recently, and it’s making the internet rounds now. It’s a gleaming weapons-grade hook-delivery machine with a chorus that sounds bigger than the known universe. I’m not saying it’ll be huge, but I am saying that it could be huge. Familiarize yourself below. No word on a new album yet, but “oh hey I wonder if a new album is coming” is a weird thing to think when that song is playing anyway. “Whoaah wuh-hooaah” is probably more where my head is at.

Movie Will Detail Aaliyah and R. Kelly Relationship

The upcoming Lifetime movie on the late R&B singer Aaliyah will include details of her controversial relationship with crooner R. Kelly, sources tell Page Six.

The 1990s diva — who was tragically killed in a 2001 plane crash when she was just 22 — was alleged to have secretly, illegally married her mentor Kelly in 1994 when she was 15 and he was 27.

Though the couple denied the union, a marriage certificate was eventually revealed that falsely listed Aaliyah’s age as 18.

The marriage was reportedly annulled by her parents. The movie, starring Disney star Zendaya and based on a biography by Christopher John Farley, will cover Aaliyah’s life from 10 years old to her death at 22.

Kelly’s come under fire for other alleged relationships with underage girls.

Executive producer Debra Martin Chase told us, “Aaliyah’s personal and professional relationship with R. Kelly will be explored with care in the film as we set out to depict her life with the utmost respect. Above all else, it’s our hope to inspire an entirely new generation with her music and larger-than-life talent.”

Prince reveals details of new album, including Rita Ora duet



Prince has revealed more details of his upcoming solo album. The currently untitled LP - a separate project from Plectrum Electrum - is expected to be released later this year.

The pop icon told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the album will include an "aggressive and menacing" rap song featuring Rita Ora on vocals. There will also be a "joyful" ballad titled 'This Could Be Us', inspired by a meme of him riding on a motorcycle with Purple Rain co-star Apollonia Kotero.

The LP will reportedly begin with an electro-funk song called 'The Gold Standard', followed by a "complex electronic discourse" track. Prince said of the album: "I've finally got something that is a cohesive statement."

He also bemoaned the delay in music being released by record companies, saying: "Every number one song, every Top 10 song, every song in the Top 40 is at least six months old. "We should be able to make music and put it out now."

He added that he wants to release his Ora duet as soon as possible, as "time is money". Prince will next release his 3rd Eye Girl collaboration Plectrum Electrum later this year.

Meanwhile, Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis has confirmed that Prince had been in discussions about headlining this year's festival.

Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares to End After 10 Years


After 10 years and more than 120 episodes of Kitchen Nightmares, brash reality TV chef Gordon Ramsay has decided to cease production on the restaurant renovation series. "It's been a blast but it's time to call it a day," the Scottish-born Ramsay, who traveled the U.K. and U.S. rehabbing struggling restaurants during 12 seasons of the show, wrote in a post on his personal website Monday, June 23.

First premiering in the U.K. on Channel 4 in 2004, Ramsay brought Kitchen Nightmares to FOX in 2007. A companion series to Ramsay's other FOX staples, Hell's Kitchen, MasterChef and Hotel Hell, Kitchen Nightmares focused on Ramsay's efforts to renovate struggling eateries -- and properly train their chefs -- nationwide.

Fans of the series will no doubt recall the buzzed-about 2013 episode of Kitchen Nightmares that brought Ramsay to Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz. On the episode, Ramsay attempted to dole out tough love to co-owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, only to walk off set and declare the duo's eatery "too far gone."

"I've visited over 100 restaurants, meeting and trying to help or, in some cases failing to help, some of the most weird and wonderful people," Ramsay wrote on his blog, referencing Amy's Baking Company. "I'm glad I've been able to entertain and hopefully help a few people along the way."

Ramsay will continue to film four final episodes of Costa Del Nightmares for U.K.'s Channel 4.

Turns Out Disney Isn’t Completely Mangling 'Into The Woods' After All


When news broke last week that, according to composer Stephen Sondheim, Disney might be making some major changes to beloved musical Into the Woods, the response was quite vocal and quite angry. And not just from us. Well in a statement released today, Sondhiem walked back some of the claims that were reported in The New Yorker. (And accused them of “misreporting” him, to boot.) Sondheim says:



The fact is that James (Lapine, who wrote both the show and the movie) and I worked out every change from stage to screen with the producers and with Rob Marshall, the director. Despite what the New Yorker article may convey, the collaboration was genuinely collaborative and always productive.

When the conversation with the teachers occurred, I had not yet seen a full rough cut of the movie. Coincidentally, I saw it immediately after leaving the meeting and, having now seen it a couple of times, I can happily report that it is not only a faithful adaptation of the show, it is a first-rate movie.

And for those who care, as the teachers did, the Prince's dalliance is still in the movie, and so is “Any Moment.”

Jennifer Lopez: 'Selena Gomez could play me in a movie.'

j. lo & s. go

If anyone ever makes a film of Jennifer Lopez's life, there's only one person Jenny from the block would cast. "I would want Selena Gomez to play me in a movie. She is a cutie," Lopez said.
It's not the first time the two Latinas have been compared. Jason Evigan, producer of Gomez's #1 album "Stars Dance," told MTV last year that he expected the album to take Gomez to a new level and added, "I kind of feel she's going to be like a new JLo kind of thing."
"Save the Day," the Latin pop track on "Stars Dance," was originally meant for Lopez. And Gomez was named for the late Tejano singer whom JLo, 44, portrayed in the 1997 biopic "Selena."
Gomez, 21, has been hoping to land more challenging roles. "Acting is something I would like to take on more seriously," she told Teen Vogue. "I don't necessarily feel accomplished. I want to create a whole different persona when it comes to acting."

    New trailer for The Purge: Anarchy. Now with more Frank Grillo!

    For those who felt the first The Purge was too limited and too familiar, The Purge: Anarchy takes the same basic premise but goes in a bolder, more extreme direction. Once again, the story is set in a dystopian America where, in a ghastly effort to weed out the weak and let the strong blow off steam, all crime has been legalized for one twelve-hour period per year.



    But this time, the action spills out onto the streets as Frank Grillo plays a man who heads out in search of revenge. Unfortunately for him (and the others with him), it’s not long before the tables are turned on them.

    The whole idea of a Purge is horrifying enough, but the trailer gets really disturbing once the rich people show up. Then it starts to feel like an even more awful version of The Hunger Games, right down to the garishly decorated emcee. From here, it looks like The Purge: Anarchy deserves kudos for taking fuller advantage of this sickening premise.

    The Purge: Anarchy opens July 18. Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, Carmen Ejogo, and Michael K. Williams also star.

    Miley Cyrus Has Enlisted Little Sister Noah Cyrus To Be Her "P--sy Police"



    Keeping Miley Cyrus' lady parts covered is apparently a family endeavour. The 21-year-old pop superstar, talking to Australia's 2Day FM, was asked by host Sophie Monk whether she shaves or waxes, on account of the very high-cut leotards that make up a large part of her Bangerz Tour wardrobe. "My sister—what channel are we on right now, so I can't say 'p--sy,'" Miley initially stopped herself. But after Sophie informed her that she could use the p-word, even saying it herself for good measure, Miley then revealed that 14-year-old Noah Cyrus is her "p--sy police." The singer explained, "She makes sure that, you know, everything is staying intact. You definitely can't wax...because you have to wait a certain amount of time and you don't really have that kind of time, so you've just got to hope to god that this, like, unitard covers everything that it has to cover."

    World Cup becoming biggest social-media event ever



    (CNN) -- Clint Dempsey may have scored the go-ahead goal for the United States in what would ultimately be a gut-wrenching tie with Portugal in Sunday's World Cup game. But on social media, Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was three times as popular as the American striker.

    Ronaldo, considered the best soccer player in the world by some, was mentioned on Twitter 1.5 million times during the United States-Portugal match, compared to 465,000 mentions for Dempsey.

    Of course, the word "popular" is probably relative to most Americans, after Ronaldo lobbed a perfect crossing pass to help create the last-minute goal that prevented the U.S. from advancing to the Cup's next round, at least for now.

    "I feel like someone (@Cristiano) just punched me and my babies in the gut!" New York Jets placekicker Nick Folk wrote.

    "What a match. 30 seconds away from advancing! Still, we control our own destiny... #IBelieve," tweeted pop star Justin Timberlake.

    Sunday's match was a high point in a World Cup that's already shattering social-media records.

    Facebook says 10 million people had 20 million interactions during the U.S.-Portugal match. According to Twitter Data, there were 8 million tweets about the match while it was happening.

    Young lovers Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson are well and truly back on the good foot doing the bad thing.

    When the aesthetically blessed stars briefly broke up last month we didn’t know how we’d survive but all is well in the world again as Hadid posted photos of the pair to Instagram, confirming their rekindled status.

    In the pics the 19-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model is all limbs as she sits alongside 17-year-old Australian singer, Cody, in front of an American flag.

    By all accounts we should hate these two; they’re young, hot and successful (Receipts?) but we’ll be damned if we don’t love seeing them back together.

    Senator Bob Casey wants World Cup in U.S. in 2022



    Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) called on FIFA, the governing body behind the World Cup, to move the 2022 competition from Qatar to the United States amid growing concerns over Qatar’s labor practices.

    In a letter addressed to FIFA President Joseph Blatter on Monday, Casey laid out concerns over corruption and labor abuses, particularly of migrant workers.

    “Employers often do not complete legal procedures to secure work permits, leaving workers at risk of arrest and deportation at any time,” Casey said in the letter, citing statistics that said the Qatari workforce was 94 percent migrant labor. “Illegal fees and withheld wages have been widely reported.”

    Casey reminded Blatter that the U.S. had 50 cities capable of hosting the World Cup, which was the runner-up in the November 2010 bidding process.

    “Qatar’s host bid was classified as ‘high risk’ by FIFA’s own inspectors in the run-up to the selection process. You even recently said that selecting Qatar was ‘a mistake,’” he wrote, a reference to a May interview Blatter gave to Swiss channel RTS.

    FIFA declined to comment on the letter Monday.
