NetflixJosh Groban is gearing up for the world to see his latest acting role, in the new Netflix comedy The Good Cop.
In the series, set to debut on Friday, Josh plays the rule-following police detective son of Tony Danza’s corrupt cop. Josh tells Entertainment Weekly he related to his character’s straight-laced nature.
“Being called a ‘choir boy’ is not new to me,” he says. “I’ve always been a rule follower. Growing up I was super nerdy. Still am.”
But there’s one major way his character, Anthony Caruso Jr., is different from him – he can’t sing. In fact, it’s Tony Danza who does the singing in this show.
“Tony sings and dances throughout the show, but my character is tone deaf, so that’s one thing I did leave at the door,” Josh says.
Tony adds, “I’m doing a show with Josh Groban, and I’m singing and he’s fighting. I even sing the theme song.”
Yes, it's true, Josh does a swing a few punches in The Good Cop, something he says he “never expected to be doing in my life.” “But as my physical therapist these last few months will tell you, I did a lot of my own stunts on the show, and it was fun,” he says.
BMGAs a second preview to their first album in nearly 20 years, Culture Club has released a new single, "Life." The song has a joyous vibe and bears the same name as the band's forthcoming album, which drops on October 26 and is available for pre-order now.
Boy George says in a statement, "John Lennon said 'LIFE’ is what happens while you are busy doing other things, but sometimes you have to stop and look with sadness and pride at what you have done and created in your own life and value the rich complexity of it! It's a song about second chances and new beginnings, enlightenment, spiritual growth and personal redemption."
All four original members -- Boy George, Jon Moss, Roy Hay and Mikey Craig -- were on board for the recording and just wrapped a summer trek where they played to more than a half-million fans; they've now got a West Coast mini-tour kicking off Friday in Salt Lake City.
Here are Culture Club's US tour dates:
9/21 -- Salt Lake City, UT, Maverik Center 9/22 -- Reno, NV, Reno Events Center 9/23 -- Santa Barbara, CA, Santa Barabara Bowl 9/25 -- San Diego, CA, Open Air Theatre 9/27 -- Albuquerque, NM, Sandia Casino 9/28 -- Cabazon, CA, Morongo 9/29 -- Las Vegas, NV, DLVEC 9/30 -- Scottsdale, AZ, Talking Stick 10/3 -- Los Angeles, CA, Greek Theatre 10/5 -- Fresno, CA, Big Fresno Fair 10/6 -- Temecula, CA, Pechanga Resort and Casino 10/7 -- Sahuarita, AZ, Desert Diamond Casino
Ricky Vigil/GC ImagesWhile it’s still not clear if they’re actually married or not, Justin Bieber made a grand romantic gesture to Hailey Baldwin in London Tuesday.
The singer sat down with his guitar in front of Buckingham Palace and serenaded Hailey -- as well as a crowd of onlookers -- with acoustic versions of his 2016 song “Cold Water” and Tracy Chapman’s 1988 classic, “Fast Car.”
In fan-captured video of the impromptu concert, Justin is heard proclaiming his love for Hailey. “That girl right there is the love of my life,” he says. Hailey is seen blushing and covering her face.
The couple was in town for London Fashion Week, where Hailey walked the runway in the Falcon Catwalk Show with Adidas Originals.
Justin and Hailey have been engaged since July but People reported last week that the two tied the knot at a New York City clerk’s office. Hailey denied that they were already hitched, but her uncle Alec Baldwin told People on Monday that the two “just went off and got married.”
ABC/Randy HolmesMaroon 5 may be headed for the Super Bowl halftime show stage.
According to Us Weekly, the band has been tapped for the coveted gig and a source says they’ve “pretty much accepted” the offer.
Nothing is confirmed as of yet but the band does have a break in their schedule just in time for the February 3 game. They’ll have time between their Las Vegas New Year’s Eve show and the February 19 start of the Australian leg of their tour.
Super Bowl LIII (53) will take place in Atlanta. Justin Timberlake performed the halftime show at this year's Super Bowl.
Dan MacMedan/WireImageAdele doesn’t tweet often, but when she does it’s for good reason.
The singer posted a tribute to one of her inspirations, Lauryn Hill, after seeing her in concert Tuesday night. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the multiple-Grammy-winning album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
“I saw Lauryn Hill in 1999 at Brixton Academy when I was 10 years old,” Adele writes. “Tonight I saw her play at the Hollywood Bowl. I’ve just turned 30!”
She continues, “What a woman what a record, by Miseducation is my favorite record of all time. Such an honest representation of love and life, I feel I can relate too but also I know theres elements and levels I never will be able to.”
Adele concludes with a message directly to Lauryn, writing, “Thank you for the record of a life time, thank you for your wisdom! Thank you for existing. Happy 20th x.”
The show, which will come on before The Ellen DeGeneres Show, will debut in fall 2019 and will air on select NBC-owned stations across the country.
It’s described as “a weekday brunch party with a fascinating guest list of people who would otherwise never meet.” Each episode will include human interest stories, celebrity guests, good music and fun surprises.
“I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Kelly says in a statement. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
Before launching the new talk show, Kelly will defend her title as The Voice season 14 winner when the singing competition kicks off its new season September 24 on NBC.
Kelly will also launch the Meaning of Life tour -- her first trek in three years -- January 24 in Oakland, CA.
NBC/Andrew LipovskyRumors of Kelly Clarkson landing her own daytime chat show have been circulating since August, but on Tuesday's Tonight Show, she made it official.
As any fan of Kelly knows the pop star and Voice coach loves to talk. In fact, she told host Jimmy Fallon that the hardest part of the job will be letting her guests get a word in edge-wise.
"Well I love talking, it's my favorite pastime...but it's hard to shut up though," she admits. "Like you know you have to listen to people who go on your show, and I just keep talking."
In spite of that, Clarkson promises her show will be more than just talk. She says it'll also feature plenty of music with her touring band, which also serves as the show's house band.
"We sing everyday on the show and we do like this fan request thing, it's fun," she told Fallon. "On the pilot I got people to sing with me and do little skits. It's very musical, as well."
Clarkson said the show is slated to air before Ellen DeGeneres' show.
Earlier in the program, Kelly teamed up with Jimmy and Tuesday's other Tonight Show guest Queen Latifah for a segment in which they looped their voices together on an iPad app to sing The Penguins doo-wop classic "Earth Angel."
Kelly has a busy year ahead of her. Besides the new talk show, she'll be defending her title as The Voice season 14 winner when the singing competition kicks off its new season September 24 on NBC.
Kelly will also launch the Meaning of Life tour -- her first trek in three years -- on January 24 in Oakland with opening acts Kelsea Ballerini and Brynn Cartelli, the #TeamKelly member and last season's winner of The Voice.
Leslie HasslerEver since it was announced that Tom Cruise would be returning in a Top Gun sequel called Top Gun: Maverick, there's been speculation that Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone," from the original Top Gun soundtrack, might be included. Kenny confirms he's been trying to make it happen, without much success.
"I've offered a few different versions of it but so far, the team there has been non-committal," he tells ABC Radio. "So I'm kinda half-jokingly saying, 'Let's do a write in' and just have people send some sort of note to their website and say, "What about 'Danger Zone'?"
"I'm getting positive noises from that camp," he adds. "But they're not sure how much they wanna reinvent the movie."
"Danger Zone" is included on Kenny's new two-CD/DVD set, Kenny Loggins & Friends: Live on Soundstage. Itdocuments a concert he taped in Chicago in 2016 that features him performing solo and with well-known collaborators like Jim Messina, David Foster and Michael McDonald.
"I wanted to do it as a legacy piece so...we added a whole hour of Loggins & Messina, and then we built out with David Foster and Mike McDonald," he tells ABC Radio. But there was one person he wasn't able to get.
"I wanted Stevie [Nicks] to come -- we almost had a thing where we were gonna go to her house and do an acoustic version of 'Whenever I Call You Friend,'" he adds. "And then she took off with Fleetwood Mac and we missed our chance."
Still, Loggins says, "It felt like a homecoming event or something. It's really all the music and some of the stories. I wanted more stories in it, but we just didn't have enough time!"

Simpson made the announcement and gender reveal in a series of Instagram snaps featuring the couple's two children, six-year-old daughter Drew and five-year-old son Ace.
"SURPRISE..." the fashion mogul captioned the first -- a shot of Drew and Ace holding up a set of giant-sized balloons.
A second post revealed the contents of the balloons -- a bunch of smaller pink ones. "This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn't be happier to announce this precious blessing of life," read the caption.
A third post featured featured Jessica showing off her baby bump, with the caption, "My baby love."
Simpson and Johnson, a former professional football player, tied the knot in 2014.
Evaan KherajHelping find a cure for cancer is a cause close to Michael Buble's heart, since his son Noah has battled liver cancer. The singer is reportedly teaming up with James Corden for an episode of Carpool Karaoke that will be part of British TV's Stand Up to Cancer fundraising programming.
The British paper The Sun reports that Corden is planning a special edition of the musical bit, which will air on BBC Channel 4 in support of the cancer charity. The paper reports that in addition to duetting on Michael's hits, the two will also talk seriously about the disease.
A source told the paper, "Michael has always been a huge supporter of Stand Up To Cancer, so he is happy to help. It’s all for a great cause and is sure to be an emotional journey.”
If the report is true, Michael might be able to tape the episode when he's in London at the end of this month to perform at the O2 Arena. It's not clear when the show will air on British TV -- earlier this month, U.S. TV aired its own Stand Up to Cancer charity telethon.
RankinDespite having lived the life of a rock star to its fullest, Rod Stewart is still going strong at age 73. In a kind of reverse "Forever Young," the man they once called "Rod the Mod" considers his formative years in a feature for the U.K. publication The Big Issue called "Letter To My Younger Self."
Stewart says his teen self wouldn't doubt for a minute that he'd end eventually up a rock star. He jokes, "With a nose and haircut like that, there was nothing [I] could have been but a rock star...What else could we have been?"
That's also true for the attention Rod got back in his partying days: He says he was "born to be a show-off." He says teen Rod wouldn't have even minded being "splashed all over the tabloids," as the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has been over the years.
“He’d love the thought of all that attention," Rod says of his younger self.
So what would have shocked young Rod? Older Rod.
"He would be totally surprised that I’m absolutely still enjoying it as much now as I did back then," says Stewart. "And I mean that...I really love it."

Cabin 24Ingrid Michaelson is welcoming the holiday season early with a new song and the announcement that she's releasing a Christmas album.
"Looks Like a Cold, Cold Winter" is the lead single from Ingrid Michaelson's Songs for the Season, due out October 26. The 12-song disc was recorded with a 35-piece symphony orchestra and features original songs as well as classics like "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," "White Christmas" and "All I Want for Christmas Is You."
The album also features Ingrid duetting with Christina Perri, Grace VanderWaal, Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr. and actor and singer Will Chase, who is Ingrid's boyfriend.
“I love everything about this time of year,” says Ingrid. "Christmas was a big deal at my house. We would have a huge party every Christmas Eve filled with family and friends. My dad would play carols and everyone would eat, sing and dance."
Ingrid continues, "This time of year may mean something different now than it did as a child but it’s become even more special, especially as I’ve experienced loss and heartbreak." Ingrid's mother passed away during the holiday in 2014 and that inspired one of the songs on the album, "Happy Happy Christmas."
"I want people to listen to this record and feel warm and fuzzy," Ingrid adds. "I think the world needs that right now."
Ingrid will promote the new album with a tour featuring The Ingrid Michaelson Trio, consisting of Ingrid and vocalists Allie Moss and Hannah Winkler. The trek starts November 26 in Portland, OR and wraps up December 17 in New York City. Along the way, it'll hit 14 cities, including a show in Denver that'll see the trio accompanied live by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets go on sale September 21. Visit IngridMichaelson.com for ticket info, as well as special holiday merchandise.
Here's the track listing for Ingrid Michaelson's Songs for the Season:
"Looks Like a Cold, Cold Winter" "White Christmas" (Feat. Christina Perri) "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" "I'll Be Home for Christmas" (Feat. Will Chase) "Happy, Happy Christmas" "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" (Feat. Grace VanderWaal) "Mele Kalikimaka" (Feat. Allie Moss & Bess Rogers) "Christmas Time Is Here" "All I Want for Christmas Is You" (Feat. Leslie Odom Jr.) "Auld Lang Syne"
Machado CicalaIn her new video for her version of ABBA's classic hit "S.O.S," Cher's taken the song's original message of a woman asking for a man to save her with his love and turned into into a message of female empowerment.
Cher herself doesn't appear in the video, though. Instead, we see a young African-American girl lying on a bed, obviously upset and depressed. Then we see a chorus of women of all ages and races lip-syncing the song while dressed in a variety of retro-style outfits. Wherever the sad young girl goes, she's startled to see different groups of women singing the song and reaching out their hands to help her.
Toward the end of the song, the sad girl rushes into the arms of one of the women and smiles for the first time. Then all the other women gather around for a giant group hug.
According to Jezebel, among the actresses and models who appear in the video are Australian pop star Betty Who, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's daughter Rumer Willis, and actress Aimee Carrero.
"S.O.S." is from Dancing Queen, Cher's upcoming album of ABBA covers due out September 28. She'll kick off her Here We Go Again tour in support of the album on Valentine's Day 2019.

Evaan KherajIn August, Michael Bublé told an Australian radio station that his new album would be due in October. But according to the New York Times, we'll have to wait a bit longer to hear Michael's new music.
The paper's Pop Music Fall Preview says that Michael's new album will be out November 16. There's no title listed, but the Times says that for the project, Michael's reunited with super-producer David Foster, who worked on five of his previous albums.
According to the paper, the disc follows the blueprint for Michael's previous albums, meaning that it features his versions of standards -- this time around, they include "My Funny Valentine" and "La Vie En Rose" -- as well as a few originals, including a single called "Love You Anymore."
The new album will be Michael's first since Nobody But Me, which came out in the fall of 2016. Just a few weeks later, his son Noah was diagnosed with cancer, and Michael and his model/actress wife Luisana Lopilato put their careers on hold to care for him. Noah is now doing much better and Michael and Luisana recently welcomed their third child, daughter Vida.
In August, Michael told Australia's Smooth FM, that the new album was his "therapy," adding, "I just put a lot of love into it and I think the whole world needs those positive and really beautiful things right now. They need love and romance and baby-making music, and I think I'm pretty good at doing it. I truly, genuinely love doing it, and I think people are gonna dig it."
Michael will perform at London's O2 arena on September 29.

Courtesy Premium PRTaylor Swift continued her record-breaking ways over the weekend by performing to a massive crowd Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
"A huge thank you to everyone who came to the show last night in Indianapolis. You guys broke the concert attendance record at Lucas Oil Stadium, and I loved dancing with you," Taylor wrote on Instagram. " It’s pretty surreal that we only have 5 shows left in America cause it feels like this tour just started. See you in St Louis."
Taylor now holds the record for the biggest crowd ever at the 67,000 seat stadium. Fittingly, it was Taylor's 13th overall performance in the city of Indianapolis -- 13 is Taylor's lucky number.
At the show, Taylor's friend and fan, country star Kelsea Ballerini, was backstage cheering her on. Kelsea will release a new song with The Chainsmokers on Tuesday. She's also opening up for Kelly Clarkson next year during Kelly's Meaning of Life tour.
