Maroon 5's Latest Hit Is "On the Positive, Upbeat Side"...for Once

Maroon 5's latest hit "Sugar" has hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the highest charting single from their album V.  Maybe that's because, unlike a lot of the band's other hits, the song is about the happier side of love. "It's just a really sweet song," laughs guitarist James Valentine. "It’s just one of those straightforward songs that’s more on the positive, upbeat side. A lot of our songs are pretty dark and deal with a lot of the more negative aspects of, like, male/female dynamics." Among the Maroon 5 hits that fit that description:  "Misery," "Makes…

Marvin Gaye's Family Seeking to Block Distribution of "Blurred Lines"

Marvin Gaye's family isn't satisfied with the recent verdict awarding them nearly 7.4 million dollars in the "Blurred Lines" case. The family's attorneys on Tuesday night filed a request for a federal judge to block the sale, distribution and performance of Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' smash hit, according to the Los Angeles Times. The filing argues that sales of the song represent continued copyright infringement. A jury determined last week that Robin and Pharrell ripped off Gaye's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up" for "Blurred Lines." Gaye's family is now also requesting that another "Blurred Lines" collaborator, T.I.,…

Report: Drake Sued by Concert Film Distributor

Drake has reportedly been sued by the distributor of a concert film that captures his sold-out homecoming performance at Toronto’s Sound Academy in 2009. TMZ reports SpectiCast Entertainment filed the lawsuit against the rapper after he tweeted earlier this week, "The Drake Homecoming film is not something OVO or Drake have any part in. I feel it is my responsibility to inform and protect my fans." Specticast didn't appreciate Drake's lack of support. It believes he posted the tweet to draw attention to his account, since he subsequently wrote about ticket sales for his OVO Fest in Toronto. Homecoming: The…

Kanye Cancels Scheduled Appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Perhaps it was a reluctance to read "Mean Tweets" about him, or maybe it was just Kanye being Kanye, but for whatever reason, Kanye West won't be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week. The rapper was scheduled to appear on Kimmel's final show from Austin, Texas, on Friday, but Jimmy announced Wednesday night that West canceled. "Willie Nelson will be here in studio with us," Kimmel said of Friday night's show.

Madonna & Justin Bieber Join Ellen DeGeneres for Revealing Game of "Never Have I Ever"

Things got pretty revealing when Madonna and Justin Bieber joined Ellen DeGeneres for a game of “Never Have I Ever” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday. The trio kept things completely candid, even when the questions became a little…personal. By holding up paddles that said “I have” or “I never have,” Madonna, Justin and Ellen made some startling admissions. For example, all three admitted to fooling around in a bathroom during a party, and to dating someone and their sibling. At one point Madonna pointed out, "All these questions are sexual -- just sayin'." When both Justin, 21, and Madonna,…

"American Horror Story" Creator Says Lady Gaga's Role "Will Shock People"

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy tells Entertainment Tonight that Lady Gaga’s role in the FX show’s hotel-themed fifth season "will shock people," but that's about the only detail he's willing to spill for now. He is, however, dishing on what it was like bringing the pop star on board. He says there was a reason why the news was kept secret for so long. "It was just something that she did very, very privately,” Ryan explains of the singer’s decision to join the anthology series. “It was sort of a creative investigation. My favorite thing in the world would be…
