Lido Debuts His "Angel" Acoustic Video And Talks About Being Friends With Jaden Smith

If you’ve ever heard a song and thought it was flawless, chances are that Lido could still find a way to make it even better.

Rihanna Wants Us All To Know That She's Totally Cool With Beyoncé

Despite earning a whopping eight Grammy nods for her hugely acclaimed opus ANTI, some factions of RiRi's Navy took issue with the fact that it wasn't nominated for Album of The Year.

Keegan-Michael Key On Comedy Success, Coping With Donald Trump, And What Barack Obama Is Really Like

In Don’t Think Twice, Mike Birbiglia’s affecting indie comedy from earlier this year (out on DVD and Blu-Ray yesterday), Keegan-Michael Key plays a member of a tight-knit New York improv troupe who defies the odds by getting cast on a Saturday Night Live-style sketch comedy show.

You Can Now Own An Olsen Twin Print Kimono Thanks To This Museum Gift Shop

Back in April 2015, Brooklyn, New York-based comedians Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen teamed up to create something that the world was clearly missing: a museum dedicated to the 1994 scandal involving ex-figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan.
