Back in 2012, Alabama Shakes seemed to come out of thin air. Who would’ve thought that the Alabama based alternative band led by front woman Brittany Howard would score a top ten album, a gold-certified album (Boys & Girls) and Grammy nominations?

Tomlinson, 23, partied in London on Wednesday night until around 4 a.m., where he was hanging out at a club with several women. One of his companions took the photo of the singer and shared it on Snapchat, and another user captured it as a screen ...

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widows
Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner have apologized for some comments they made about fellow star Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow, because our oversensitive society had to find something wrong with two grown men joking around and obviously not being serious AT ALL during an interview to promote the film.

Review: 'Scandal' Is In A Rut

April 24th, 2015 9:41am EDT
'Scandal' Review: 'First Lady Sings The Blues' Can't Move Forwar
Fake outs are cop outs. Just as predicted in the last review, Jake’s “death” was short lived. In fact, it lasted all of 2 minutes, after Huck revived a man, who had been stabbed multiple times and was bleeding out for God knows how long, by hitting him hard in the chest. Science!
