Because The Internet Exists, A BILLBOARD Music Awards Producer Had To Defend Choosing Madonna To Salute Prince Comments (0)

Executive producer Mark Bracco has gone on the record defending the show's choice of Madonna as the appropriate artist to pay tribute to Prince.

The choice was sparked by Madonna's interest in doing it in the first place:

Honestly, her team gave a call and inquired about what we might be thinking about and it led to many conversations about what would she want to do and how would we want to shape it creatively. And after everyone (got) comfortable with exactly what the direction was, we all collectively wanted to go into Madonna, that she would do this and she has been very, very involved in how this will all unfold creatively.

He also hinted at the tone of the performance, which sounds more like “Kiss” spiked with “Love Song” than, for example, “Erotic City”:

It's going to be very, very intimate and very respectful, and I think it's something that is really going to pay tribute to Prince as the incredible, groundbreaking artist that he was and the influence that he had on music.

The show airs live at 8 p.m. ET this Sunday on ABC.

Via ExtraTV.com: Jennifer Lawrence riffed through her speech introducing Robert De Niro, recipient of an Excellence in Media Award from GLAAD Saturday night, joking about her inability to read from the teleprompter, about De Niro not being gay (and then being gay) and more.

De Niro (his timing off) joined in once he took the stage. Looks and sounds like they were having a lotta fun up there.

The Tony Awards: Featuring HAMILTON Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 9.14.01 AM(Screen grab via HamiltonBroadway.com)

The list of Tony nominees is out, and to absolutely no one's great surprise, the superb Hamilton has knocked down a record-breaking 16 nominations. Congrats to all involved; it really is an inventive and intelligent and original show.

Read my original review of Hamilton here!

Sadly, the excellent American Psycho was not deemed worthy of any major love, not even for Benjamin Walker, who is really amazing and whose underwear is worth the price of admission.

Read my original review of American Psycho here!

Actually, the list of snubs is almost more interesting than the list of winners. I have heard mixed reviews of Shuffle Along, but it still nabbed 10 nominations without one for Tony-hogging star Audra McDonald.  Somewhat surprisingly, On Your Feet (the Estefans are no Carole King!) and Tuck Everlasting were also left out.

What was your favorite show this year?

Zac Efron Humbles Himself Before Seth Rogen's Stones, Says The Rock Rocks On MTV Movie Awards Comments (0)

Via ExtraTV.com: The MTV Movie Awards are always good for something that you just know would make Old Hollywood turn over in its mass-media grave, and Sunday's installment was no exception.

Buffed-out Zac Efron (is there anything left on his body that isn't muscle? maybe eyelashes?) did a bit with co-star Seth Rogen in which Rogen, in costume as a juicehead, claimed he had been forced to do steroids in order to compete with the likes of Zac, Ryan Reynolds and others. When Zac apologized, Seth demanded he do it to his shrunken testicles ... which Zac promptly did.

Too bad Seth didn't ask Zac to kiss the owie. 

 

Enjoy this exclusive #MovieAwards pre show clip of Baywatch with @therock and @zacefron 💪🏼

On the same show, we got more behind-the-scenes glimpses of Zac's big-screen version of Baywatch, even though the film is literally a year away from release.

Star-Packed GLAAD Awards: Taylor Swift! Demi Lovato! Nick Jonas! Caitlyn Jenner! Plus, Lilly Wachowski's Debut Comments (0)

The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A. last night, attracting top names—including some of the biggest millennial stars.

Taylor Swift was a surprise presenter, handing the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Orange Is the New Black babe Ruby Rose. The award is given to out LGBT people in who have fought homophobia in the public sphere. Check out the list of distinguished honorees since 1991.

Demi Lovato won the Vanguard Award, which has also gone to many household names, ever since 1993. The award was presented to her by tour mate and former Camp Rock co-star Nick Jonas, to which Demi said, “What people don't know about me is—I know that you all love Nick Jonas, but I actually have a bigger dick than he does. And a huge set of balls.”

I guess Demi is becoming the new Elizabeth Taylor.

I know a lot of us are sick of Caitlyn Jenner, especially due to her political wrongheadedness, but check out her tender speech upon winning Outstanding Reality Program (tying with I Am Jazz) for I Am Cait.

Perhaps the biggest entertainment news story of the evening was the first public appearance of Lilly, formerly Andy, Wachowski, of The Matrix fame. Looking lovely in a floor-length gown, she announced the new her with a simple, “Ta-da!”

Wachowski spoke eloquently (and with dark humor) about her serendipitous coming-out “with the help of the fabulous people at GLAAD, Nick Adams, as well as the extremely sensitive and courteous people at the Daily Mail—thanks, guys!”

A one-hour special devoted to the awards will air on Logo on Monday, April 4, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. That's tomorrow, guys.
