Benedict Cumberbatch to feature as Madame Tussauds waxwork

Benedict Cumberbatch is to be immortalised in wax after Madame Tussauds revealed that the Sherlock actor has already posed for two sittings for its sculptors.

The museum said the waxwork will show the actor looking impeccably groomed in a stylish dark suit. Madame Tussauds said his “immaculate red carpet style will be paired with a warm and relaxed expression, and his famous tousled hairstyle”. Work on the figure is already well underway, and the Cumberbatch has been heavily involved with the creation process.

England captain Steven Gerrard announces his retirement

After a glittering 14-year career representing his country, Steven Gerrard has retired from international duty.

The 34-year-old made his debut in 2000 in a 2-0 win over Ukraine at Wembley, and the Liverpool captain went on to play 114 times for England, score 21 times and represent the Three Lions at six major tournaments.

Gerrard’s first tournament came under Kevin Keegan when he was part of the squad for Euro 2000. It was the first of three UEFA European Championship Finals he would play a part in, with Portugal in 2004 and Ukraine and Poland in 2012.

Though he missed the 2002 World Cup through injury, he played in three FIFA World Cup Finals, his first in Germany 2006, then as captain for both South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014.

In all Gerrard played 12 World Cup Finals matches, scoring three goals.

Courtney hopes to start Kurt biopic next year, writing her own book


LOS ANGELES – To conclude our two-part column on Courtney Love, we feature the musician-actress (the day after her birth anniversary) sharing details about a biopic on her late husband, iconic Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

“The biopic should start within the next year or so,” Courtney announced.
Who gets to play the lead singer, composer and guitarist? “CAA (Creative Artists Agency) directly sent me actors’ (demo) reels,” she explained. “That was really tough because these boys are so pretty, so cute. I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts. There’s a ton of those. Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces.

“I don’t want to be the person who makes that decision,” she said on casting an actor for Kurt. “Let’s leave that to the agents; I have great agents now. But I will have a say in it.”

Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent, Jerémié Renier as Pierre Bergé, Louis Garrel as Jacques de Bascher, Lea Seydoux as Loulou de la Falaise.


All these movies focusing on YSL's younger years...the next one should be one when he and Bergé are old farts running around (well IDK if YSL ever ran, he probably just...stumbled around a lot) and trolling Tom Ford. Played by Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart (they can learn French, it's ok) ofc, and then Karl can play himself.

'Weird Al' Yankovic’s ‘Mandatory Fun’ takes No. 1 spot on music charts

The King of Song Parodies looks to become this week’s King of Pop — in a typically off-beat way.

"Weird Al" Yankovic will chart his first No. 1 album with “Mandatory Fun,” according to preliminary figures from HitsDailydouble.com. Yankovic’s sales of just over 104,700 will beat numbers for Jason Mraz, a star with a far younger, and seemingly more active, consuming fanbase.

Mraz had been on track to bag his first chart topper as well, but Hits says he will stall at No. 2, based on sales of just under 84,000 for “Yes!”

Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson pretend to be The National


The National's Mistaken for Strangers turned out to be less of a traditional rockumentary than a fascinating portrait of two brothers who couldn't be less alike. Now, Zach Galifianakis has his heart set on turning the story of brothers Matt and Tom Berninger into an intense, emotionally harrowing theatrical production, as chronicled in this excellent new Funny or Die sketch, in which Zach Galifianakis as his real-life doppelganger Tom Berninger and Galifianakis’ Bored To Death co-star Ted Danson plays Matt for the stage version of the documentary. The best part of the video comes when Matt gives Danson advice on how to do that whole precarious walking-over-the-crowd thing that he does at so many shows.

Channel4's Utopia: A Recap of Episode 3 and Questions for the Back Half of the Series


Now we’re starting to realise why that flashback episode was so crucial.

Without seeing Carvel and Milner’s relationship from the beginning, we wouldn’t understand why the ice-cold Milner could let her emotions get the better of her with Carvel and Jessica.

Is she going to be undone at the last minute by her own past?

With Milner going soft and Arby (it’s increasingly hard to think of him as Pietre) apparently trying to go straight (via murderous means), the show really needed to bring Lee back from the dead. He’s exactly the oddly insightful sociopath series two needs.

Zoe Saldana Is Pregnant, Expecting First Child With Husband Marco Perego

Forget Rosemary's baby—Zoe is expecting one of her own! Zoe Saldana is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Marco Perego, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

"Zoe is about three months pregnant," the insider tells Us of the Guardians of the Galaxy actress, 36. "But she will only announce the news when she's ready."
Another insider says she and Italian artist Perego, 35, can't wait to be parents. "Zoe has always wanted a big family," the second source says, "and Marco's on board, too!"

The mom-to-be has been making the rounds this week to promote Guardians, but has strategically tried to camouflage her burgeoning bump on the red carpet. On Monday, July 21, she kept onlookers guessing with a printed frock. She was also spotted earlier in the day wearing a baggy T-shirt under a loose-fitting blazer.

The New Jersey native isn't the only one in her family expecting. As Us exclusively reported, Saldana threw a baby shower for her pregnant sister Mariel Saldana Webb earlier this month. Along with sister Cisely Saldana, the trio celebrated at Caulfield's restaurant in Beverly Hills on June 8.

Us broke news in September 2013 that the Avatar actress and Italian artist secretly married in London. "It was super small but very romantic and beautiful," an insider told Us at the time. Almost a year after their nuptials, the couple finally made their red carpet debut at AOL's NewFronts event in NYC on April 29.

Woody Allen on Gaza crisis: "...I feel that the Arabs were not very nice in the beginning"

Also calls people who believe in psychics "simple-minded"

Woody Allen

Interview with the Daily Beast

Woody Allen is, without question, one of the most prolific filmmakers in history. The comedy legend has directed an astounding 44 films—averaging about one a year—including classics like Annie Hall, Manhattan, Love and Death, the list goes on. He’s won four Academy Awards and received a total of 24 Oscar nominations, including 16 as a screenwriter, the most of anyone ever (and all in the Best Original Screenplay category), as well as seven as a director, tying him for third all-time.

His 44th film is Magic in the Moonlight. Set in the French Riviera, it tells the tale of Stanley (Colin Firth), a renowned illusionist who goes by the stage name Wei Ling Soo and is hired by a wealthy family’s consigliere to expose Sophie (Emma Stone), a fetching young American woman who claims to be a medium that can not only see the future, but also speak to the dead. It’s a pleasant enough, aesthetically pleasing confection replete with some splendid vistas.

During the last awards cycle, Allen was the subject of an onslaught of media attention not for his filmmaking accolades, but his controversial off-screen life—namely, that Dylan Farrow, his stepdaughter with ex-wife Mia Farrow, penned an op-ed in The New York Times accusing him of sexually assaulting her as a child—allegations that were first brought to light over 20 years prior. Allen responded with his own op-ed in the Times, and the media, as is their wont, proceeded to pick sides.

Moonlight is Allen’s first film since that very public back-and-forth.

Blind Item: No time to grant a wish

She’s great at giving big smiles, pretending her personality is as sweet as her voice. It depends. If she’s talking to Ellen DeGeneres, well, of course she’s lovely and accommodating. But what if it’s a child in a wheelchair?

There was a kid who had a wish. The wish was to meet her favourite star. So they made arrangements for it to happen at an event earlier this year where the star was promoting her show. They set up the wheelchair at the end of the red carpet, everyone had been informed, and then, when it came time for the moment, as soon as they started introducing her to her young fan, she cut off the handler, said, “NO”, and then walked away…even though the family had specifically flown there for the opportunity.

She has ONE advocate. One. And that’s only because he made her. But since he’s caring less and less about that particular project, when that’s done, she won’t have any supporters left. Because no one can f-cking stand her.

Lena Dunham Opens Twitter Discussion About Why We Use Birth Control

Since the shocking Supreme Court decision ruling that Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit companies can be exempt from providing birth control coverage to employees last month, birth control, insurance, and their pertinence to gender inequality have been the subject of a national debate. Currently, the White House is developing a new plan that will accommodate religious non-profits so that they don't have to take certain measures to opt out of coverage. In the face of all this, many cultural influencers have expressed their own opinions on the matter, but Lena Dunham is one such name who is taking the extra step to open the discussion to her fans.

LIGHTS announces new album "Little Machines" + new single "Up We Go"


Hey — LIGHTS is back!

The last time we heard from the Canadian electro-pop darling was with the release of her sophomore record, Siberia. (Well, and the acoustic version of the album, which was released and toured last year.) Since her second album dropped, she’s gotten married to Blessthefall‘s Beau Bokan and given birth to their daughter named Rocket (!) in February. Happy family!

And now, she’s ready to go for Round 3: Today, the singer-songwriter revealed the title of her upcoming studio album Little Machines, due out on September 23 — and already available to pre-order.

To give us a taste of what’s to come, the singer just dropped the lead track off of the upcoming set: “Up We Go,” a punchy, motivational synth-pop production that brings CHVRCHES and Tegan & Sara‘s Heartthrob to mind — and maybe even a bit of Katy Perry‘s “Roar.” “Everyone here is ready to go/It’s been a hard year and I only know/From down this love, it’s only up we go!” she encourages on the anthemic chorus. It’s a much more shimmering and lifted sound than the crunchy sound of Siberia.

What do you think of LIGHTS’ sunnier disposition? Listen to “Up We Go” after the jump, and let us know in the comments below.

Naya Rivera Marries Ryan Dorsey

Glee star Naya Rivera has found her happily ever after.

The actress married actor Ryan Dorsey on July 19 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small group of close family.

"We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife," the couple told PEOPLE exclusively. "Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for."

Dorsey, who is originally from Charleston, West Virginia, attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts before moving to Los Angeles, where he met Rivera four years ago. Longtime friends, they saw their relationship blossom into a romance shortly after her engagement to rapper Big Sean ended in April.

For their nuptials, Rivera, 27, wore a Monique Lhuillier gown while Dorsey wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit. She carried a bouquet of daisies and baby's breath and the couple exchanged Neil Lane rings.

Now back home in L.A., the couple are excited to start their new lives as newlyweds.

As they told PEOPLE: "True love always prevails."

Robin Thicke, Paula Patton List Their Hollywood Hills House for $3 Million

Five months after they officially separated, the "Blurred Lines" singer and his wife of nine years have put their marital home on the Bird Streets up for sale. Following months of begging for a reunion and even naming his latest album after her, Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton have put their house on the market.

The couple, who were married for nine years before announcing their separation in February, listed the three bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home in the Hollywood Hills on the exclusive Bird Streets for $2.985 million.

Thicke, 37, and Patton, 38, were married in 2004 after first meeting in a hip-hop club when the singer was just 16 years old. They have one son, Julian Fuego, who was born in April 2010. In the latest effort to win back the love of his life, Thicke premiered his kid-filled "Still Madly Crazy" music video — inspired by their wedding photos — on Good Morning America earlier this month.

Naya Rivera Married On Her Original Wedding Date W/ Big Sean, Continues to "Single White Female" Kim

Naya Rivera Married Ryan Dorsey on Her Original Wedding Date to Big Sean, Used Kim Kardashian's Hair Stylist


Well, at least she didn’t have to print off new save the dates! Earlier today the news broke that Naya Rivera had secretly tied the knot with actor Ryan Dorsey — whom most assumed was a brand-new boyfriend — in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Saturday, July 19. In another wacky twist, Us Weekly has now confirmed that this was her original wedding date to rapper Big Sean.

The Glee star and the rapper bitterly ended their engagement and relationship just three months ago, but Rivera clearly kept the wedding date handy. A source tells Us that before their split in April, Rivera and Big Sean had not announced the location of their nuptials, simply the date.

The date isn't just her original wedding day with Big Sean, a source close to the couple points out: "July 19th is also Ryan's birthday, making this an even more joyous occasion."

A source tells Us, “Naya didn’t tell most of her friends that she was marrying Ryan Dorsey, let alone that she was dating him! The whole thing is a complete surprise.”

Coincidentally, at the time of Rivera’s wedding, Big Sean was nearby Cabo San Lucas in Punta Mita, Mexico, recording with newlywed rapper, Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West.

Rivera also had a touch of the Kimye magic for her big day, using hairstylist Clyde Haygood, who crafted the reality star’s wedding day ‘do back in May. A source close to Rivera also revealed that the sitcom star’s Monique Lhuillier dress “looks a lot like the one Kim married Kanye in.”

For her ceremony, Kardashian wore a long-sleeved, lace-covered Givenchy gown. She tied the knot in a Florence, Italy ceremony with West on May 24.

Surprise bitch: Marvel announces THIRD secret movie for 2018

Marvel has announced it will release another untitled movie on May 4, 2018.

The identity of the superhero film remains a mystery as the studio continues to grow its cinematic universe.

The only other movie dated for May 2018 is the animated comedy “Madagascar 4.”

It recently announced release dates for five more untitled films that Disney will on July 28, 2017 and Nov. 3, 2017; July 6, 2018 and Nov. 2, 2018 and May 3, 2019.

It remains unclear which Marvel titles these release dates pertain to, but in addition to some Marvel Phase Three sequels, possibilities include a “Black Widow” spinoff with Scarlett Johansson and “Black Panther.”

Scott Derrickson‘s “Doctor Strange” remains without a release date, though it is expected to be ready in time for one of Marvel's 2016 slots.

Disney will release Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” on Aug. 1, and the film is on tracking to gross at least $60 million at the domestic box office during its opening weekend.

Shining Prequel 'Overlook Hotel' Lands Director

Mark Romanek is checking into the Overlook Hotel. The director is in negotiations to direct the prequel to The Shining for Warner Bros., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The Shining was one of Stephen King's early horror works and was adapted into the classic Stanley Kubrick movie, which starred Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

Overlook is based on King's original prologue to The Shining, which was cut from the book prior to publication in 1977. The film will tell the origin story of the haunted hotel through the eyes of its first owner, Bob T. Watson, a robber baron at the turn of the 20th century.

Former Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara wrote the script. James Vanderbilt, Brad Fischer and Laeta Kalogridis are producing. Romanek is a music video director who last directed the clone-themed drama Never Let Me Go, starring Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. He also directed the pilot for Locke & Key, the adaptation of a comic written by Joe Hill, King's son.

Chadwick Boseman: Playing Black Panther is "Not Out of the Question"

It’s no secret that Marvel’s movie universe is expanding and the more films the comic book giant pumps, the more actors they’ll need to play them. Who knows, maybe actor Chadwick Boseman will get a shot… not that he’d tell us anyway.


MTV News caught up with the rising actor on Saturday when he was at New York’s famed Apollo theater to promote his upcoming film “Get On Up,” the powerful James Brown biopic which will open on August 1. Boseman nailed his starring role as the iconic soul singer, but when we asked him to confirm rumors that he will be playing Black Panther in an upcoming Marvel film, he just laughed it off.

I know nothing of it, I have no knowledge of this,” Boseman said after a hearty (and curious) laugh. “It’s not out of the question, but I have no direct knowledge of this.”

Black Panther made his first appearance in 1966 and has had ties to the Avengers, so maybe an “Age of Ultron” cameo is on the horizon or a film or television show of his own. We’re not sure what Marvel has planned, but hopefully we will all have direct knowledge after the smoke clears at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.

Get excited by the video at the source:

Kerry Washington's Interview for Stylist

23 Jul 2014

She’s the star of one of the most tweeted about TV shows in the US and Oprah and Lena are huge fans. Stylist discovers why Scandal’s Kerry Washington is shaking up America.

Words: Colin Crummy

There are certain indicators in life that suggest you have made it. Being asked back to your alma mater as a keynote speaker is one. Oprah Winfrey emailing you personally to tell you what a fan she is; that’s a really good one. Then there’s being nominated for your second Emmy or being on Time magazine’s Most Influential List. You get the idea.

Yet for all Kerry Washington’s celebrity in the States, there’s a good chance you don’t know much about her. But that’s all about to change. After a low-key launch on More4 two years ago, Washington’s show Scandal, now in its third series, has moved to Sky Living HD and is about to take UK audiences by storm.

Woman Sues A$AP Rocky For $75K, After Rapper Slapped Her At Concert

A$AP Rocky allegedly slapped a female fan during a Philadelphia music festival…and now she’s dragging him into court with a lawsuit. Lisamarie Wade claims the rapper hauled off and smacked her — for no apparent reason — as he made his way through the crowd last year — knocking her to the ground and disorienting her. In her docs, Wade claims the rapper has a long history of bad behavior…including a similar incident two months before the Philly show…in which he allegedly smacked a female fan in Australia.

TMZ broke the story…Wade filed a private criminal complaint…but eventually withdrew it when she couldn’t locate him to serve him with the complaint. Wade’s already making a play for the heartstrings of a potential jury…claiming Rocky’s slap caused a string of ailments which interfere with her ability to “enjoy society with her minor child as a young, single mother.” Well played, ma’am.

Note: This is not the same woman, he has slapped a few...smfh.


i hope she at least gets a settlement, he's vile.

Regina King is busy...Joins 'American Crime',Returns to 'Big Bang Theory',Directs Episode of Scandal

Regina King Joins 'American Crime' (by John Ridley - 12 years a slave), Returns to 'Big Bang Theory' + Will Direct Episode of 'Scandal'

We'll be seeing a lot of Regina King during the next season, both in front of and behind the camera apparently.

First, in front of the camera, the actress has joined the cast of John Ridley's new ABC drama series, "American Crime," and will return to CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" to reprise her role.

"American crime," which Ridley is writing, directing and executive producing, follows a racially-charged murder case and the trial that follows, as audiences will experience the murder and trial through the eyes of several different people who are, in some way, connected to the events. It'll frankly tackle matters of race, class and gender politics in the USA.

King will play the devoutly religious sister of one of the series' key characters, who comes to Modesto in order to help her brother handle a judicial system that she believes is stacked against him.

King will appear in 7 episodes of the new series, with an option for two additional.

Third 'Best Man' Movie Gets a Title, an Official 2016 Release Date & A Most Unexpected Wedding

Hot off the presses, straight from my email inbox...

Universal Pictures’ THE BEST MAN WEDDING will be released on Friday, April 15, 2016


The cast of THE BEST MAN series returns to celebrate the group’s most unexpected wedding to date. Malcolm D. Lee again writes and directs the third film in his signature hit series, and Sean Daniel ("The Best Man Holiday") returns to produce THE BEST MAN WEDDING alongside Lee.

The Universal Pictures release date announcement didn't come with any specific casting info, but we can assume that those who made it to the end of the last film, will return for this third and final one (at least I assume it'll be the last one, completing a trilogy).

(cos someone is going to ask "why are they making another one?" - op) After a $30.1 million opening weekend, the 2nd film in the franchise, "The Best Man Holiday," released last fall, went on to gross over $70 million in domestic box office, making for a profitable film for the studio, given that it cost only $17 million to make. So it really shouldn't be much of a surprise that a 3rd film is of interest to the studio.

Malcolm D. Lee admitted that he already had a 3rd film brewing on paper, before the 2nd film even opened.


"The Time to Call for Diversity Is Now" for Arabian Nights Movies

Warner Bros. is set to make a 7-film series based on the Arabian Nights. And screenwriter Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class) says the time is now for people to call for the cast to be diverse and not whitewashed.


hft if they can make it work. Also, flashbacks to the 2000 miniseries on ABC tbh.

Watch 10 (6) Clips From James Brown Biopic, 'Get on Up' + Check Out the New Poster

Universal Pictures' James Brown biopic, "Get on Up," begins with a 6-year-old James Brown, as he's abandoned by his mother (played by Viola Davis) and left to live with his Aunt Honey (played by Octavia Spencer), who runs a brothel. And the film ends in 1993 with a comeback concert, after Brown served prison time for aggravated assault and eluding the police in a wild car chase.

So it's not quite a birth-to-death biopic.

Brown would eventually die on Christmas Day in 2006 - 13 years after the movie's above ending.

Directed by Tate Taylor ("The Help"), and produced by Brian Grazer and Mick Jagger, the film cast includes Lennie James, Nelsan Ellis, Jill Scott, Dan Aykroyd, Keith Robinson, Craig Robinson, Tika Sumpter and Dan Aykroyd.

"Get on Up" was penned by Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, who wrote the script for "Fair Game," which starred Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.

Universal has set the film's release date for August 1, 2014, which is next week Friday.

Ahead of the film's theatrical debut, Universal has released 10 clips from it, as well as a new poster, all embedded below (poster above):

Thomas the Tank Engine is Racist Because the Evil Trains Pump Out Black Smoke

Every so often the Guardian disappears up its own arse. It's like that line from the Godfather from Peter Clemenza: "These things gotta happen every five years or so, ten years. Helps to get rid of the bad blood. Been ten years since the last one."

For the Guardian, these sorts of things happen every five days or so. Maybe 10. And today's is a corker.

Tracey Van Slyke writes of her refusal to allow her children any enjoyment in life without subjecting them to her own white, post-colonial guilt:

"...these trains perform tasks dictated by their imperious, little white boss, Sir Topham Hatt (also known as The Fat Controller), whose attire of a top hat, tuxedo and big round belly is just a little too obvious. Basically, he's the Monopoly dictator of their funky little island. Hatt orders the trains to do everything from hauling freight to carrying passengers to running whatever random errand he wants done, whenever he wants it done – regardless of their pre-existing schedules.

Peaches Geldof died of heroin overdose, inquest rules

Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, a coroner has ruled.

The TV presenter had been a heroin addict and took the substitute drug methadone for two-and-a-half years before her death, the inquest heard.

A police search found 6.9g of heroin in her house but there was no indication she had planned to take her own life.

Her husband, musician Tom Cohen, told the hearing in Gravesend the 25-year-old had started using the drug again in February this year.

He had witnessed her flushing drugs she had hidden in their loft down the toilet, but was not aware of any other drugs in the house until they were found by police. Collapse )

When Marnie Was There, trailer for Studio Ghibli's new film

Revered animator Hayao Miyazaki may have bowed out of animation with the stunning, controversial The Wind Rises, but his Studio Ghibli still has talent to spare. Hiromasa Yonebayashi is one such example; his directorial debut The Secret World of Arrietty was a critical and commercial success, and his latest film When Marnie Was There has just been released in Japan.

(click on the caption button for subtitles if they don't come on automatically)

Like Arrietty, When Marnie Was There is an adaptation of a British children's novel, this time by Joan G. Robinson; the plot sees an unwell girl called Anna strike up a friendship with the ethereal Marnie while staying at a seaside town to recuperate. The trailer above is in Japanese, but you don't need to speak the language to grasp many of the Ghibli hallmarks — like so many of the studio's other works, When Marnie Was There looks to feature the same stunning animation grounded in emotional resonance.

Studio Ghibli hasn't announced plans for the rest of the world, but if The Wind Rises is any indication, you'll probably have to wait until 2015; that movie got a full release in North America this February after hitting Japanese screens the previous July.


I'm excited for this! Is it a love story?

Mayim Bialik Talks Israel

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, whose rather innocuous Tweets expressing concern and affection for her loved ones Israel with a mere “Shabbat Shalom” drew fire in the current sensitive environment leading her to observe bitterly in a Tweet that “apparently wishing a happy sabbath to my family and friends and people in Israel constitutes being a baby killer....”

She added a point in a Sunday post on her Facebook page: “If you hate me for being Jewish or a supporter of the right of Israel to exist, kindly post on pages that support your opinions rather than trying to bully me and other people who are Jewish. I'm sorry there is so much hatred and miseducation but we won't fix it by name calling Jewish celebrities, I promise. God bless America for letting us have our own opinions and God bless Israel for allowing Jews to have a home. I pray for a peaceful state for Palestinians who also seek peace and want to pursue it. Not sure there is more to say.

5SOS Rock New York City, Draw Larger Crowd Than 1D on Today Show


Five Seconds of Summer have taken over New York - the Aussie rockers packed out Rockefeller Plaza for a live performance on a US morning show.

5SOS performed their hits Amnesia and She Looks So Perfect, pulling in one of the biggest crowds the show has ever seen.

Fans from across the US had been camping out on the streets since last week to make sure they bagged a good spot in the audience for the gig, according to NBC's Today Show.

The boys from western Sydney admitted the experience felt surreal.

"Seriously, this is the most incredible thing that's probably ever happened to us. Right now. It's amazing," drummer Ashton Irwin told the hosts, who later declared the crowd was bigger than the numbers One Direction attracted in 2012.
