Ben Affleck was the host on the season finale of Saturday Night Live this weekend. I’m not going to front like I even bothered to tape it. Just about the only celebrity that could get me to watch SNL again is Matt Damon, and he hasn’t hosted it since 2002. (He did do a short in 2011 with Val Kilmer, Katy Perry and Andy Samberg.) In contrast, this is Affleck’s fifth turn on SNL. He wants us to like him, he wants us to think he’s funny, and he’s willing to mock himself.
In his opening monologue (video below), Affleck referenced his Oscar acceptance speech and blamed “uncharitable souls” onMore >
A few weeks ago, Kanye West went on a tirade during one of his concerts, and his targets were many but included Grammys and the corporate nature of the music industry (even though this is the guy who is blind enough about his own role in the machine that he wore a $30,000 outfit to Occupy Wall Street). In addition, Kanye took aim at Justin Timberlake’s latest single, “Suit & Tie” by ranting, “I got love for Hov but I ain’t f–king with that ‘Suit & Tie’.” Then he went on to shout, “I hate business people. How much shampoo can you sell with your face on it and sh-t? Remind me again why we inMore >
This just in: Justin Timberlake is a beloved Saturday Night Live host.
The superstar – who hosted the sketch show last night and performed as its musical guest – carried SNL to its biggest ratings since Charles Barkley emceed in January 2012.
And for good reason.
Timberlake joined the exclusive five-time hosting club at the outset of the evening, which included a bit about Hugo Chavez dying and featured such A-listers as Steve Martin, Tom Hanks and Chevy Chase.
He then starred in an ad for Moet & Chandon, donned a giant tofu costume and, best of all, did NOT appear in aMore >
So… how did he do?
Justin Bieber took to the Saturday Night Live hosting stage yesterday, braving blizzard and cracking self-deprecating jokes about his age and his resemblance to lesbians such as Ellen DeGeneres.
He was also stuck on another Californians sketch and was joined by Whoopi Goldberg for his opening monologue.

I think the tabloids have really missed Brangelina this awards season. Last year, Brad Pitt was up for all of the Best Actor awards, and although he wasn’t considered a big contender, the sheer fact that everyone could Brangelina Watch and Brangelina Gossip throughout the awards season made it so much more fun. This year’s awards season has actual competitions – no one really knows who is going to take home the Oscars in most of the acting categories. If I was looking for some juicy drama, I would have gone with Bradley Cooper being super-jealous of Daniel Day-Lewis and Hugh Jackman.More >
Has it been a while since I’ve done a Justin Bieber story? It feels like a while, probably because I’m #TeamGomez and I’d rather talk about Selena in general. Anyway, Justin is out and about, promoting his new album (Believe Acoustic). He was in Miami yesterday, and the header photo comes from a “meet and greet” session he did with fans. This is what “newly single” Justin Bieber does – he gropes his fans. He cops a feel. He gets to second base.
Quite honestly, I’ve spent way too much time examining this photo, and from the coverage I’ve seen on other sites, there are mixed opinionsMore >
Man, I’d hate to have a feud with Anne Hathaway. Mostly because she’s sort of a goody-goody but also because I’ve seen Bride Wars, and it wasn’t pretty. Even though Anne’s currently riding high (and possibly already crafting speeches) in regard to her current Oscar race, Anne’s done some pretty low-quality movies in her time. Still and according to a story in this week’s Enquirer, Anne allegedly feels that she is above other actresses, and in particular, she’s taking aim at Katie Holmes. Actually, she’s sort of been doing so for a few years now with two “SNL” performances (one in 2010 andMore >
I don’t often catch “Saturday Night Live” these days. Now that Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Kristen Wiig (the “Terget” lady!) are gone, and I recognize very few of the musical acts, I find little reason to tune in unless there’s a specific host that’s worth watching. Jennifer Lawrence is barely enough to get me to turn on the television when I otherwise would grab a welcome opportunity to pass out. Sadly, Jennifer’s turn on this weekend’s “SNL” was pretty awful considering that this is an actress who has been nominated for not one but two Academy Awards. Perhaps these promo pics that don’tMore >
