The "Saturday Night Live" audience went wild this weekend when "Weekend Update" host Seth Meyers introduced once last edition of "Really?!? With Seth and Amy," co-hosted by his old "SNL" partner, Amy Poehler.
Meyers will soon be leaving his post as head writer for "SNL" to replace Jimmy Fallon as the host of NBC's "Late Night" franchise.
Meyer and Poehler used their popular segment to target the IRS, currently mired in controversy over a report that the agency targeted conservative groups.
“I mean really, the government only keeps you around to make the DMV look good,” Poehler said.
Gwyneth Paltrow advocated for a dairy and gluten-free diet in her latest cookbook, "It's All Good," which some critics called overly restrictive. But the 40-year-old health-conscience actress told the very first issue of Beach magazine that her father's cancer diagnosis prompted her to think about healthier foods.
"I began to consider the effects of food when my father was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998," told the magazine (via E! Online). "I started to research anti-cancer diets in hopes that he would try to hit it from all angles."
Bruce Paltrow, an American film director and Gwyneth's father, died in 2002 at the age of 58 after a battle with oral cancer.
"It's about being mindful about what you are putting in," Paltrow added. "Good whole foods are the way we have eaten for generations. It's amazing how good you feel when you just cut out the processed stuff."
'Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across . . . seems to concur that [gluten] is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it,'' Paltrow wrote in her cookbook.
She said that her husband, Chris Martin, and two children follow the diet as well.
"Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we're left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs," Paltrow said.
Beach magazine hits stands May 23.
Police have charged William C. Lewis with aggravated assault and public intoxication after the 19-year-old allegedly hit the lead singer of the Toots & the Maytals with a glass bottle during a concert, the Richmond Times Dispatch reported Sunday.
Reggae singer Frederick "Toots" Hibbert was performing with his band at the Dominion Riverrock festival in Richmond, Va., on Saturday when the vodka bottle hit his head. According to WTVR, Hibbert received eight to 10 stitches on his head but had left the hospital.
"Blood was flowing heavily from his head," a concert worker told the Times Dispatch.
"He was in good spirits and was very appreciative of Richmond," the festival manager said of driving Hibbert to the hospital. "He said he wanted to come back, and he understood this was just one bad apple, basically."
Jack Berry, executive director of the company that produced the three-day music festival, said that the company would look into whether security producers could be improved.
The bottle hits Hibbert around the 4:27 mark below:
Chris Brown's attorney Mark Geragos said his office had received multiple phone calls from people threatening the singer's life, TMZ reported Sunday.
Sources told the gossip site that Los Angeles authorities are investigating death threats, though its unclear whether the callers said anything more specific.
Geragos represented Brown in the aftermath of his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. In April, he told Extra that the 24-year-old singer has learned from his mistakes.
Brown is scheduled to perform at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards.
Dwyane Wade made prom a night to remember for Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School senior Nicole Muxo when he surprised her at the event with flowers and a single dance, WSVN in Miami reported Saturday.
Muxo had invited the 31-year-old Miami Heat guard to the dance with a modest YouTube video, in which she said:
Wade told the Miami Herald that he thought he'd be too busy to attend the dance, but changed his mind at the last minute when he saw a break in his schedule.
"I said, 'I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her,'" he said.
“I’m going to remember it forever,” Muxo said of her surprise date. “This was the highlight of my senior year.”
Wade took to Twitter to spout a few words of encouragement for any teens looking for famous prom dates.
"Never be 2 scared to ask," Wade tweeted, along with the hashtag, "#dreamsdocometrue."
Kanye West debuted his new song, "New Slaves," by projecting a video onto 66 buildings around the world Friday night, just a day before the 35-year-old singer performed on "Saturday Night Live."
West posted the locations of the video projects to his website, and promoted the unusual premiere project earlier Friday night on Twitter:
NEW SONG AND VISUAL FROM MY NEW ALBUM BEING PROJECTED TONIGHT ACROSS THE GLOBE ON 66 BUILDINGS, LOCATIONS @ KANYEWEST.COM— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) May 18, 2013
Yeezy's next album is rumored to drop June 18th, a date that he mysteriously tweeted and then deleted to his sparingly used Twitter feed.
West's last album, the critically acclaimed, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," came out in 2010.
Holler House Tavern was decorated with hundreds of bras left by female patrons for nearly half a century, until a Milwaukee, Wisc., city inspector decided that the sartorial decor constituted a fire hazard.
"We've had bras hanging here for 45 years. It's been a charm of the place," Holler House Tavern owner Marcy Skowronski, 87, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday.
"So here comes this gal, and she's walking in here like Lady Astor's pet horse, you know, and she says she wants those bras down because they're a fire hazard. Now how can a bra be a fire hazard unless someone is wearing it? Honest to God."
According to WTMJ, Skowronski complied with the city inspector's demands and piled the bar's bra collection into a corner. But she also called her local alderman, Bob Donovan, who alerted the media and contacted the Department of Neighborhood Services.
The city agreed to overturn the bra ban, which means Skowronski will get to re-hang the bras that hundreds of women have left there over the years.
"We all got bombed, all these girls. And we just decided to take our bras off and hang them up," she said of one night in the 1960s, when the tradition started.
After a flurry of rumors surrounding Beyonce's womb, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the "Baby Boi" singer is expecting a second child.
Beyonce spoke earlier this month about expanding her family so that baby Blue Ivy could be a big sister and have company.
After she was forced to cancel a show in Antwerp the rumors intensified, despite doctors pointing to "dehydration and exhaustion." Her dress at the Met Gala camouflaged her stomach well enough to quiet some rumors and spark some more.
Jay-Z and Beyonce have been tight-lipped about the pregnancy, but multiple sources have confirmed to E! that the new baby is already on the way.
Taryn Griffey has continued the legacy of athletics in the Griffey family, but not how recruiters expected her to.
Griffey, 18, is the daughter of baseball great Ken Griffey, Jr., and also happens to be one of the best basketball prospects in the country, the Epoch Times reported. She got offers from several top programs despite missing her entire junior year after tearing her ACL.
Griffey has turned down several offers and instead decided to join her brother at the University of Arizona, despite the school's subpar women's basketball performance. Her brother, Trey Griffey, is a red-shirt freshman wide receiver for the school. It came as a surprise to everyone -- especially her family.
"My family was pretty shocked. I hadn't said anything," Griffey said. "I didn't really know what I was thinking."
Recruiters were, too. The Dr. Phillips High School senior is No. 45 overall and No. 12 for her position in ESPN rankings. She was named the Florida High School Athletic Association's 8A player of the year, and led her team to a second straight state title.
Griffey said her brother had some pull, but that she chose Arizona for its atmosphere and coaching staff. She hopes to make a name for herself at a team that finished the 2012-13 season with a record of 12-18, including 13 losses in their final 14 games.
She said she wanted to leave a legacy, as Skylar Diggins did at Notre Dame and Brittany Griner did at Baylor.
With her ranking in the Class of 2014, Griffey is in position to leave that legacy.
Officials announced Friday that President Obama will host a concert honoring Carole King on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported.
This comes in the same year King will be honored with a biopic musical, called "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical." It premieres on Broadway in spring 2013.
During the concert, the Library of Congress will present King the Gershwin Award for Popular Song. She is the first woman to win the prize. Obama has presented the award to all previous winners in his presidency: Stevie Wonder in 2009, Sir Paul McCartney in 2010 and songwriting duo Burt Bacharach and Hal David in 2012.
The concert will include performances from several popular artists, including Billy Joel, Emeli Sande, James Taylor and Gloria Estefan.
King will also perform in the concert, which is an installment of the "In Performance at the White House" series. She is known for penning hits including "You've Got A Friend" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) a Natural Woman."
It will be broadcast May 28 on PBS and streamed live on WhiteHouse.gov.
