Harvey Weinstein will serve a 16-year sentence following the completion of his current 23-year sentence.

This all but ensures that the disgraced movie producer, 70, will die in prison. The New York Times has the full story.

On the same day, R. Kelly was sentenced to an additional 20 years in prison — but there's a catch. The Times reports that Kelly will only serve one year of this new sentencing outside of his current 30-year sentence.  

Eric R. Holder Jr., the man found guilty of killing Nipsey Hussle, was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison, the Associated Press reports.


What did you think of Rihanna's halftime show performance two weeks ago? It seemed to divide the internet.

Regardless, she's once again taking the stage — this time at the Oscars.

She's set to perform “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The song is nominated at this year's awards for Original Song.

We recapped the nominees for other top categories in our previous Oscars post.

This is Rihanna's first Oscar nomination.

SZA's SOS has dominated the Billboard 200 since its release. The album has spent 10 weeks on the chart, with nine of those being in the top spot.

People clearly like the album. If that's you, we have good news ...

A deluxe version "is coming soon" and will feature 10 new tracks. The only question is ... when?

Fans of Ted Lasso will appreciate that Hannah Waddingham, our beloved Rebecca, will be a host at Eurovision 2023 for the semi-finals and grand final.

She'll be joined by Alesha Dixon, Graham Norton and Julia Sanina.  

The grand final of the song contest takes place May 13.

Who else is guilty of looking for clues in every photo, video or tweet that your favorite artist posts?

In her latest promo video for Dom Perignon, Lady Gaga was giving major ARTPOP vibes. The polarizing album celebrates its 10th birthday this year, and it may be (just maybe!) joined by a part two.

Here's what we're talking about:

Unfortunately for other artists, Gaga proves that even her collaboration with a champagne company delivers better visuals than their bona fide music videos.

Film and Television

Everything must end: The fourth season of Succession will be the show's last. The season premieres March 26.

Something that may never know a true finish: The Lord of the Rings franchise.

New LOTR movies? Yes, movies plural!

Variety reports that a deal has been made to create new movies based on J. R. R. Tolkien's original books.

However, not everyone is enthusiastic about it. Some are even calling out the irony of continuing the franchise when its central theme is loss and ending — but that's showbiz, baby (read: money-making).

What new movies or shows are you looking forward to? Personally, we're gearing up for Cocaine Bear, which currently has a 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. But let's be real, we'd still see it if it had a 7%.


New York Fashion Week has come to a close — what did people see?

USA Today put together a thorough recap of the illustrious event. Here are a few of the trends they saw:

  • '90s resurgence (which many have noticed outside of NYFW, too, we should add)
  • Nepo babies hit the runway (let's not forget about that New York magazine deep-dive into celebrity nepotism)
  • A move toward local sourcing

USA Today also has all the looks from the 2023 NAACP Image Awards. See looks from Zendaya, Angela Bassett (who did the thing), Sheryl Lee Ralph, Serena Williams, Kerry Washington, and more.

Plus, be on the lookout for all the best (and worst) looks from tonights SAG Awards.
