Ed Sheeran Says Benedict Cumberbatch Pulled Out of Starring in His "Sing" Video

Ed Sheeran's video for "Sing" is pretty entertaining, since it features a hard-partying puppet version of himself, as well as a guest appearance by Pharrell Williams.  But according to Ed, the clip was originally supposed to star someone even more compelling: red-hot British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Sherlock and Star Trek: Into Darkness. Ed tells the British paper The Telegraph that he thought that the Cumberbatch appearance was a sure thing, but it was not to be.  "He was locked on for it, I had dinner with him twice," the singer explains. "His U.K. agent said yes. Met up…

Boyz II Men to Justin Bieber: "Don't Apologize for a Damn Joke"

Justin Bieber has already issued a lengthy apology for a video that emerged showing him, at age 15, telling a racist joke whose punch line incorporated the "n-word."  But according to the guys in Boyz II Men, who are friends of the Bieb, the now-20-year-old singer shouldn't feel as though he has to say he's sorry. "Apologize for the other stuff you might have done, but don't apologize for a damn joke," Boyz II Men member Shawn Stockman tells ABC News Radio.  His bandmate Wanya [wahn YAY] Morris agrees, saying that Justin is far from racist. "If it's any testament…

Anti-Drug Group Calls for One Direction to Be Drug-Tested Before Philippines Concert in 2015

The recently-leaked video showing Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik of One Direction seemingly smoking pot has had an unexpected consequence: a Filipino anti-drug group is calling for the band to be drug-tested before they're allowed to perform in the Philippines next year. According to Inquirer.net, the anti-drug group has asked the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency not only to insist that all five members of 1D be drug-tested before they're allowed in the country, but also to have anti-narcotic agents monitor them while they perform onstage in Manila in March of 2015. The anti-drug group's spokesperson said, "If they want the…

Describing an event as "star-studded" is pretty common, but Bruno Mars' two concerts this past weekend at the Hollywood Bowl were the very definition of the phrase.  In fact, there were so many celebrities in the audience that it's hard to believe that any regular fans actually took in the show. Here's just a partial list of those stars who attended Bruno's Moonshine Jungle tour on Saturday and Sunday: Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, Aaron Paul, Jared Leto, Will Ferrell, Zac Efron, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba, Sharon Stone, Ryan Philippe, Lea Michele, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Paula Abdul, Anna Paquin,Tim Allen,…

Sam Smith Plays Down Adele Comparisons, Duet with Mary J. Blige Out Now

Most artists would be thrilled if their music was mentioned in the same breath as that of Adele's, but rising British star Sam Smith says he'd prefer to let his music stand on its own merit. Not long ago, no less a star than Katy Perry tweeted that Sam was "the male version of Adele."  Now, speaking to the Australian paper The Daily Telegraph, Sam says, "I’m a very different artist to Adele."  He adds, "I can see the similarities in the honesty of lyrics but I also understand that people need to compare things to digest music which is…

Katy Perry Says "Healthy Sexual Curiosity" Led Her to Cosmo; What's Next for Her Brand?

The most ironic thing about Katy Perry taking over the cover of Cosmopolitan's global issue for July, appearing on every single one of its international covers?  The fact that as a kid, she was banned from reading the iconic woman's magazine. "I started reading Cosmo specifically when my mother said I couldn't," reveals Katy in a behind-the-scenes video documenting her cover shoot.  Katy, whose parents are extremely religious, laughs, "I didn't really know about the outside world, especially when it came to healthy sexual curiosity.  So I was getting a lot of my tips from Cosmo!" The video shows Katy…

Lorde & Her Producer Make a Great "Team"

Most articles about Lorde marvel at the fact that she's only 17, yet seems so talented and wise beyond her years.  People find it difficult to believe she could've created the music on her hit debut album, Pure Heroine, at such a young age.  The fact is, she didn't do it alone -- there was someone there with her, helping her shape her raw talent into Grammy-winning tunes. Lorde has a close musical partnership with New Zealand songwriter and producer named Joel Little.  He co-wrote every song on her album with her, and also engineered, mixed, played on and produced…
