Rob Cantor, a bearded singer-songwriter and sometimes celebrity impressionist, has created a viral sensation with his song, “Shia LaBeouf.” First released two years ago as an animated video, “Shia LaBeouf” told the story of a cannibalistic version of the star that has had more bizarre twists and turns in his career than a M. Night Shyamalan film. Two years later, Cantor recorded a live performance for fans’ viewing pleasure. And this stage performance has everything: the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, dancers in papier-mâché LaBeouf head masks, glitter falling from the ceiling, a Children’s Choir singing the words “Shia LaBeouf,” and the actor himself sitting alone in the audience watching it all go down.
It’s almost too good to be true… but it all happened on video.
In her new memoir, Yes Please, Amy Poehler opens up about her childhood, her divorce from Will Arnett, and her own outstanding female anatomy. The book, which is a mix of personal stories, essays, advice, and plenty of memories from Saturday Night Live, is a hilarious yet tender look at the actress’ journey from the first time she she fell in love with improve (for the record, it was during her fourth grade performance of The Wizard of Oz) to fighting for the survival of Parks and Recreation.
From HBO’s Boardwalk Empire to Parenthood on NBC, this season fans are forced to say goodbye to 13 hit series. For loyal TV viewers that just means prepping goodbyes whether its getting tissue boxes ready for an emotional final end credits or gleefully hate-watching a show to its miserable finish.

It’s almost hard to imagine that Top Chef is still on the air but even in its twelfth season, it’s as delicious as ever. The Bravo series, which has taken the chefs (and viewers) from New York to New Orleans, is now calling Boston home as it puts a new group of contestants to the test in what looks to be the series’ toughest season yet. Gail Simmons, who has served as a judge since the show premiered in 2006, is still amazed by the enormity of what the franchise become. “If you would have told me then that I would still be making the show and still be in this role, I would never have believed you,” Simmons says. “We’re still making great food television and eating really delicious food.”
In an interview with VH1, Simmons opens up about dishing out harsher critiques, welcoming former contestant Richard Blais to the judges’ table, and why risotto always brings cheftestants down.

With Camp X-Ray hitting theaters this weekend, Kristen Stewart is finally exploring life beyond Twilight. The indie drama, which tells the story of one soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is a far cry from Bella and the world of vampires Stewart became so famous for over the past five years. During that time, Stewart became pigeonholed and often hated on for her participation in The Twilight Saga. And for those who only know those films are doing themselves a disservice. Her latest film — the first of three high profile films she has coming out this year — has earned the actress accolades on the festival circuit and reminded many of the promise she showed in roles, such as Sarah Altman in Panic Room or Emily in Adventureland. It’s those films that fans (and the haters) should watch if they want to restore their faith in Stewart.
Opening this weekend is yet another adaptation of one of Nicholas Sparks’ romantic novels, The Best of Me, starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan.
