With Fine Line, Harry Styles transforms into a California-pop iconoclast

With Fine Line, Harry Styles transforms into a California-pop iconoclast

There’s a long tradition of artists heading for the promised land of California seeking musical fortunes. Don Henley and his pre-Eagles band Shiloh moved west from Texas at the behest of Kenny Rogers, who ended up producing an album for the group. In the early ’80s, Axl Rose left behind a turbulent adolescence in Indiana and immersed himself in L.A.’s burgeoning hard-rock scene. So did a...

Snack boss Sara Lee is taking that SNL skit “in stride”

Snack boss Sara Lee is taking that SNL skit “in stride”

By most accounts, Harry Styles did a fine job last weekend during his time as host on Saturday Night Live , tasked with not only being the show’s musical act, but also appearing in a wide variety of comedy sketches. One of the many highlights that didn’t involve Styles turning into the personification of Joan’s dog was his turn as the (American-accented) Sara Lee social media employee who...

Inexplicably, SNL didn't air this sketch where Harry Styles plays Kyle Mooney's cool little brother

Inexplicably, SNL didn't air this sketch where Harry Styles plays Kyle Mooney's cool little brother

Saturday Night Live may not have time to air every one of its sketches. This, we understand. Plenty of good ideas are left on the cutting room floor of all projects, and a weekly sketch show is no different. With that said and out of the way, we’re still left wondering: How is modern SNL not comprised entirely of the Kyle Mooney-centric digital offshoot “Cut For Time” sketches?

Watch the most...

Aidy Bryant's Joan is the musical hero every lonely dog lover needs

Aidy Bryant's Joan is the musical hero every lonely dog lover needs

Gazing levelly into the camera to a plinky toy piano score on last night’s Harry Styles-hosted Saturday Night Live, Aidy Bryant crooned plainly, “Hi, I’m Joan. And I currently live alone.” That’s was the start of “Joan,” the episode’s first filmed segment, and pretty much the sweetest and most innocently life affirming sketch the show’s done in a while. Because Aidy’s Joan, while still...

“One incredible night together and then we’ll never see each other again.”

It was only a matter of time until Harry Styles hosted SNL. In previous sketch appearances alongside hosts like Paul Rudd, Amy Adams, or Jimmy Fallon, the always camera-ready Styles...

Harry Styles announces 2020 tour with Jenny Lewis, King Princess

Harry Styles announces 2020 tour with Jenny Lewis, King Princess

Harry Styles is basically following the cyclical, tried-and-true protocol of pop stardom: release a decent single , snag an SNL hosting gig , announce a long-awaited new album , and then take the act on the road. While Styles still has to slog (or sail gloriously, which is totally possible) through his double-duty appearance at 8H this Saturday, the “Lights Up” performer has already...

Harry Styles’ new “Lights Up” video hit 4 million views in 12 hours

To help kick off your weekend, Harry Styles has just dropped a new single, and coincidentally or not, the theme of “Lights Up” works perfectly for Official Coming Out Day today. In the song’s sultry R&B groove, Styles laments, “All the lights couldn’t put out the dark running through my heart” and asks, “Do you know who you are?” Then the stirring chorus encourages us all to “Shine,...

Sorry, everybody: Harry Styles is not playing Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid

Sorry, everybody: Harry Styles is not playing Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid

Judging by the trending topics thing on Twitter, the entire Internet melted today when rumors began to spread that former One Direction member Harry Styles would be starring alongside Halle Bailey in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. It was all very exciting, if only because it would mean seeing Harry Styles in one of those open sailor shirts that Prince Eric wore in the...

Harry Styles in talks to play Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid, but who cares, no big deal

Casting for Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has been a real rollercoaster of emotions—from the disappointment in the all-too-obvious casting of Melissa McCarthy as Ursula (are these people even trying?) to the excitement over Halle Bailey as Ariel (okay, maybe they’re trying). Here to give us some additional whiplash is The Hollywood Reporter, delivering the total shrug of a...

Stevie Nicks and Harry Styles are playing together again, and fans are getting eager for an album

Stevie Nicks and Harry Styles are playing together again, and fans are getting eager for an album

Back when Harry Styles was a boy band sensation, no one would’ve guessed that he’d find a muse and collaborator in Stevie Nicks. Now, though, their performances together are one of the more enjoyable things on the internet. Styles might have piqued Nicks’ interest by bringing her a carrot cake at one of her concerts, but he most definitely won her over with his voice and style (no pun...

Stevie Nicks has thousands of shawls, keeps them in a temperature-controlled vault

Stevie Nicks has a new interview with Rolling Stone and, Christ, where do we even begin? The Fleetwood Mac songstress touches on everything from her Game Of Thrones poetry to the time she ripped off Tom Petty to her, and we quote, “shawl vault.” We’ll let her elaborate:

I have my shawl vault—they’re all in temperature-controlled storage. I have these huge red cases Fleetwood Mac bought, all...

One of Call Me By Your Name’s best shots was Armie Hammer’s idea

Luca Guadagnino is one of our most celebrated modern directors, with his work on movies like 2015’s A Bigger Splash , last year’s Call Me By Your Name , and this year’s Suspiria remake anointing him as one of Hollywood’s chosen few. But, as Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet revealed in a recent interview, even the masters need a helping hand now and then.

The scene where Chalamet’s...

Christopher Nolan didn’t realize Harry Styles was famous before putting him in Dunkirk

Last March, we reported that Christopher Nolan had decided to make his war movie Dunkirk significantly more teen-friendly by casting One Direction’s Harry Styles in a relatively small role. Now, with Dunkirk arriving in U.S. theaters later this month, The Hollywood Reporter says that Nolan has shamefully revealed that he didn’t know who Styles was when he cast him in the movie. “My kids...

The teaser for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has grim war imagery, but no Harry Styles

Christopher Nolan movies have become cinematic events that everybody has to see even if they don’t care about another Batman sequel, Leonardo DiCaprio entering people’s dreams, Hugh Jackman as a magician, or Matthew McConaughey in space, mostly because Christopher Nolan doesn’t really make movies like anybody else these days. Even his lesser works are cerebral affairs that audiences...
