Lady Gaga and 15 Other Musicians Who Have Guest Starred On 'The Simpsons'

I suppose it was inevitable: Lady Gaga just finished recording her lines for an appearance she’ll be making on The Simpsons. Though apparently it was a little nerve-wracking for her– singing does not equal voiceovers, apparently– she seems pretty psyched about it; she told EW, “My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.” Which, by the way, will be the spring of 2012 with the episode “Lisa Goes Gaga.” But as you may well know, The Simpsons has a long and storied history of rendering not just actors and comedians, but also musicians in animated form. Though tuest-his is by no means a comprehensive list, here’s a guide to some of the more entertaining choices of musicians who have guest-starred on The Simpsons. More »

13 Celebrity Bar Brawls

13 Celebrity Bar Brawls

Weird things that happened this week included Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean getting stabbed in a bar brawl. I have to admit, though, that this one kind of makes me adore him just a little bit more, because he was apparently leaping to defend the honor of model April Summers. Furthermore, after the incident, instead of heading to the hospital, he merely went back inside the bar, asked for a first aid kit, and patched himself up while ordering another drink, which I find mildly hilarious. Though Bean certainly isn’t the only celebrity to have gotten into a bar brawl, he may well be one of the only ones that has done so for an honorable reason. Honorable or now, though, here are 13 other notable celebrity bar fracases. Who’s side are YOU rooting for? More »

Poll: What Did You Think Of The ‘Conan’ Premiere?

Poll: What Did You Think Of The 'Conan' Premiere?

Conan premiered last night, you guys! And what did we get for all that anticipation? Well, the Masturbating Bear made an appearance, as did the grimy L.A. River. Conan O’Brien‘s first guests were Seth Rogen (who was adorably nervous), Lea Michelle (who was mostly likable!) and Jack White (who was just Jack White). Conan was his own musical guest, accompanying Jack on a Nashville-twangy song.

The show lived up to its eponymous title as nearly all the jokes focused on Conan’s Tonight Show debacle — which is to say the content was primarily about the host himself. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Conan’s brand of humor has always made himself the mode for delivering jokes. As opposed to a Letterman or a Leno, known for their monologues, or a Fallon whose sketch background means his strength is the characters he becomes, Conan makes people laugh most when he’s using his lanky limbs to dance or mocking his own shortcomings.
