'Dancing With The Stars' Week 6 Recap: Pitbull And Leah Remini E
It was week 6 of the competition on "Dancing with the Stars" and time for some serious footwork. Sitting in for judge Len Goodman was Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull.

Scores from the past two weeks coupled with viewer votes determined who went home this evening. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Jonathan Bennett and partner Emma, who were eliminated from the competition.

5 Takeaways From U2's 'Songs Of Innocence'

October 20th, 2014 7:30pm EDT
U2 - Songs of Innocence
Anytime a certain Dublin band named U2 releases a new album, well, it’s “kind of a big deal.” The release of Songs of Innocence, the band’s first new album in five years, is a big deal, but not necessarily in the same way as previous efforts from the collective. It could be argued Bono and company have even had some missteps along the way, which has hindered their latest LP. After listening and analyzing the release process of Songs of Innocence, here are five takeaways.

1) Imposing a free album on everyone is probably a BAD idea…

Most people like free things, particularly if there w...

Gwen Stefani
With Christina Aguilera waiting in the wings after giving birth to her second child, Gwen Stefani won't be returning as a mentor on "The Voice" for its ninth season -- but that doesn't mean she won't be keeping busy.

Last month during New York Fashion Week the singer confirmed that she was working on the solo disc and added that "The Voice" co-star Pharrell Williams is producing it.

Stefani released the first single off the new disc, "Baby Don't Lie," on October 20. The new CD...

Nicki Minaj Is Trying To 'Shock The World' By Toning Down Her Image

Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj says that despite all the booty-saking and near nudity in the video for her latest single, "Anaconda," there's nothing special about it.

The singer, who appears in a sexy spread for the November GQ, says that she doesn't "know what there is to really talk about," when asked to discuss it.

"I'm being serious," she says of the racy promo. "I just see the video as being a normal video."

The rapper exlained that her video is simply about girls doing what they do, which, to her, is dancing around in skimpy outfits and twerking.

"I think the video is about what girls do," she says...

'The Affair' Season 1 Episode 2 Review

October 20th, 2014 3:52pm EDT
The Affair
The Affair is back with its second episode complete with a brand new title sequence and song courtesy of Fiona Apple. The new intro is a nice antecedent to the drama with its evocative beach-themed visuals and dramatic musical style; it certainly sets the stage for what is to come.

If the pilot for the series introduces us to the main characters and its compelling narrative structure, then the second episode begins to weave the intricate web of circumstances/events that bring these people to where they are in the present day. The narrative unfolds like a Rube Goldberg machine, little bits ...
