Andy Samberg Leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’: His Top 10 Best Digital Shorts With Pop Stars

Saturday Night Live ended its 37th season by tearfully saying goodbye to Kristin Wiig, and now the show is losing another key player. Fake rapper/Nicolas Cage impersonator Andy Samberg has confirmed that he won’t be returning to SNL next season.

Though his comedy group The Lonely Island (also made up of Jorma Taccone…

Santigold Brings Out Pharrell And Shy Ronnie For NYC Concert

Shy Ronnie — Andy Samberg’s bashful character who haphazardly bursts out with rap stat confidence and swagger — made a welcome return in Saturday Night Live’s 100th Digital Short on Saturday (May 12). But Samberg wasn’t ready to put away his red wig and goofy striped sweater just yet. During Santigold’s Samsung Mobile USA’s 5MM Fa…

Gotye And Kimbra Get To Know ‘Saturday Night Live’

Gotye’s hotly anticipated performance on Saturday Night Live came as his haunting hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” was already in striking distance of the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and the early raves for his live rendition with Kimbra in Studoio 8H just might vault the Australian electro-pop artist across the finish…

Beyonce And Gwyneth Paltrow To Star In Ryan Murphy’s ‘One Hit Wonders’

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has previously dabbled in film projects — he directed Julia Roberts in 2010’s Eat Pray Love — but now he’s ready to bring his musical stylings to the big-screen. Murphy will direct the star-studded musical One Hit Wonders, and has cast Beyonce in one of the roles. The story revolves around…

Will Justin Timberlake Or The Lonely Island Take Home An Emmy For Original Song?

The cast of Glee fared pretty well with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this year, but the musical comedy series surprisingly wasn’t nominated for “Original Music & Lyrics” despite this season’s addition of original tunes. Instead, Saturday Night Live dominated the category with four nominations, leaving room for only Family Guy’s “Christmastime…

Lady Gaga’s ‘SNL’ Performance Packs Guts, Glory And Threeways

Lady Gaga’s SNL performance was bound to be a spectacle unlike any other. Not just because Saturday night represented her final major performance before Born This Way finally hits record shops (well, maybe except for her Beyonce tribute for Billboard), not just because she had to top her riveting Monsters’ Ball HBO special, and not just because…

Justin Timberlake Gets Haunted With Andy Samberg In ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promos

Since this Saturday is apparently the start of the end of the world, we can’t imagine spending it any other way than watching Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga on the season finale of Saturday Night Live. (Okay, maybe spending it actually with Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga might be more fun, but we’re being realistic,…

The Lonely Island Dresses Snoop Dogg Up In A “Turtleneck & Chain”

Turtlenecks, chains, and light beers all get a very bad wrap in the latest single from The Lonely Island. The title track from their upcoming album Turtleneck & Chain (due May 10) gets an assist from one of the LP’s bevy of high-profile celebrity guest stars — in this case, none other than Snoo…

The Lonely Island Is Cockier Than Ever In Their New Video “We’re Back!”

Reproductive organs compared to a melted stick of butter. CGI Garfield licking CGI Marmaduke in an unmentionable area. The line “I got Hepatitis C from a horse, but no confusion / It wasn’t from the sex, it was a blood transfusion.” Either Ark Music Factory has undergone some major restaffing of their songwriters, or SNL’

Rihanna Steals The Spotlight On ‘Saturday Night Live’ With Shy Ronnie

Last time Rihanna dropped by 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the results were both hilarious and award-worthy – her SNL Digital Short with Andy Samberg, which featured RiRi impatiently requesting that Shy Ronnie “speak up” during his whispered rap, was nominated for an Emmy. This Halloween weekend, RiRi also managed to scare up two killer renditions of…

PHOTOS: Lady Gaga To Return To Fashion Week, Inspire More Look-A-Likes

Lady Gaga is set to return to New York’s Fashion Week next month with a Feb. 10 performance at the amfAR New York gala fundraiser, where she’ll likely point the way for countless imitators during the past year.
Whether you love or loathe Gaga’s fashion statements, you have to admit her outlandish and oddball…

Alicia Keys Can Always Get A Job In Phone Sex If Singing Doesn’t Work Out

Andy Samberg is probably the luckiest guy on TV. First he slithered up next to Beyoncé in nothing but a pair of tights, got to duet with Rihanna, and on this past Saturday’s SNL, he made Alicia Keys say sweet, sexy nothings to him over the phone. Plus, the dorkier he dresses himself, the hotter…

T-Pain And Andy Samberg Get Crabby In A New Funny Or Die Video

Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg and his fellow “I’m On A Boat” Grammy nominee T-Pain extend their collaborative relationship with a new video posted to Funny Or Die.

In the clip, Samberg gets his Auto-Tune on by serenading a hermit crab (hot), using the I Am T-Pain iPhone application. The “Buy U A…

Justin Timberlake Serves Up A Minestrone Of Pop-Rap Hits

Sure, the Christmastime setting of Justin Timberlake’s Saturday Night Live skit in which he dresses up as a cup of soup and retrofits “Shoop,” “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” and “Whoomp! There It Is” for the purposes of collecting cash for a charity–and out-hipping the sad-sack Salvation Army Santa who only knows moldy old carols–seem…

The Jonas Brothers Will Never, Ever Get Old

The Valentine’s Day episode of Saturday Night Live was a somewhat painful affair, with the normally reliable Alec Baldwin locking his gaze with the teleprompter a lot, perhaps because he wanted to get awful skits like the “Wii makes you look like you’re jerking off” one* over as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, musical guests the…

Peabo Bryson And Regina Belle Could Never Have Expected This

My favorite musical moment from the Saturday Night Live that aired 36-ish hours ago: A re-imagining of the 1992 chart-topper “A Whole New World” in which Aladdin and Jasmine, married 10 years, sing about how the thrill in their love life has gone away thanks to time, age, and the damn Genie wayyyy overstaying hi…

Lady GaGa Dances To No. 1 As iTunes’ Beat Gets A Little Bit Slower

Over the holidays, Billboard’s song charts were, at least on the surface, pretty sleepy. On the Hot 100, most of the songs that were hot late last fall—Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” and “If I Were a Boy,” T.I. and Rihanna’s “Live Your Life,” Kanye’s “Love Lockdown” and “Heartless,” Taylor Swift’s “Love Story,” the unkillable Katy Perry’…

Justin Timberlake Would Like To Serve Beyoncé Some “Mexican Breakfast”

Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Live was pretty weaksauce overall, so one of the relative high points came with the above skit, which placed Justin Timberlake, Andy Samberg, and SNL’s new guy in a scenario where they, clad in leotards and heels, were B’s newer, spazzier, more penis-enabled dancers for her “Single Ladies” video. I…
