Right from his earliest days as lead singer of Soundgarden, it seemed as if Chris Cornell had come from central casting for rock-and-roll lead singer, a lean, long-haired sex god with an expressively outsized voice.
As there was always something so panoramic about his singing, it was a natural progression for Cornell’s music to make its way to the big screen.
The reach of Chris Cornell's voice was not merely to the back of any stadium, theater or nightclub. Through the music of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and his solo albums, that remarkable voice — one of the most revered in rock history — reverberated around the globe and throughout the music industry.
Many of the singer-songwriter's fans, including fellow musicians and artists, took to social media on Thursday morning upon hearing of his death at age 52.
Cornell was remembered across genres and generations. Classic rockers Jimmy Page and Elton John joined the chorus with country musicians Jason Aldean and Zac Brown, both of whom had collaborated with Cornell. Indie rockers St. Vincent and Best Coast mourned alongside pop artists as divergent as Josh Groban and Duran Duran and actor Val Kilmer and "Selma" director Ava DuVernay.
New developments surrounding the Trump administration's dealings with James Comey, Michael Flynn and Russia have been relentless over the last few days.
It's the sort of quickly evolving story that's difficult to capture in a single article, much less a single late-night segment, but Seth Meyers gave it a shot in Wednesday night's "A Closer Look."
"The Trump White House is like the guy who tries to get out of a speeding ticket by punching the cop," Meyers said, referring to Comey's memo on Trump asking him to close the investigation of Flynn, his former national security advisor.
John Woo always made characters for me that were between a bad guy and a good guy. The bad guy with a good heart. It's the key to dramatic motion. We would watch French gangster movies or things like Steve McQueen in 'The Great Escape' or [Clint] Eastwood in 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.' We loved those movies.
Chris Harrison and "The Bachelorette" gang dropped a hunky amuse-bouche array on Bachelor Nation on Wednesday in the form of an official look at this season's cast before the season premiere next Monday.
If "The Bachelorette" were the Super Bowl, think of this Facebook Live presentation as those shows where they talk about the game for hours ahead of kickoff — even though this sneak peek takes only 16 minutes from start to finish.
"I feel like a dad that has a gift under the tree and I'm ready for all of you to unwrap it," Harrison said gleefully about Rachel Lindsay's upcoming journey, sounding only a little bit odd before returning to standard "Bachelorette" lingo.
Wait, you thought Jennifer Lawrence would be embarrassed by video showing her tipsy and attempting to pole-dance on stage at a strip club in Austria? Well, Internet, you thought wrong, wrong, wrong.
"I'm not going to apologize, I had a BLAST that night," the Oscar winner wrote Wednesday on Facebook after Radar Online posted fuzzy video with a breathless description of the action from a source who spoke primarily in sentences that ended with exclamation points.
"Look, Nobody wants to be reminded that they tried to dance on a stripper pole by the internet," Lawrence wrote. "It was one of my best friend's birthdays and I dropped my paranoia guard for one second to have fun."
CBS is bringing back James Corden to host the Grammy Awards in 2018, the Los Angeles Times has confirmed.
When Corden hosted the 2017 Grammys in February, the host of "The Late Late Show" was generally well-received as he brought comedy — including a "Carpool Karaoke" rendition of "Sweet Caroline" — into the mix.
LL Cool J did the honors at the performance-heavy awards show for five years prior. Before that, the Grammys went seven years with no host at all.
