The Killers think it will be a breeze playing The X Factor final at London's Wembley Arena.
The "Runaways" hitmakers say their scariest moment of 2013 was headlining Wembley Stadium - so they're not panicking about playing next week's show. "That was the most nerve-wracking gig we've ever done. You've always got to make sure everyone is having a good time, so for me it's like flying a 747 up in the air and you've got to keep it there," Drummer Ronnie Vannucci told the Daily Star newspaper.
The band, who will join One Direction, Katy Perry, Elton John and Tom Odell at The X Factor next weekend, have been promoting their best of collection Direct Hits - despite saying they would have liked to wait longer before releasing the record.
"I don't want to see a perfect band when I go to a show, with dots of sweat on their shirt. I want to see them looking like they've been shaken by a silver-back gorilla," Ronnie, 37, said of performing.
Matthew Morrison says that the Glee cast are over the "hump" of Cory Monteith's tribute episode.
The actor admits it was "hard and emotional" to say goodbye to both the actor - who overdosed on heroin and alcohol in July - and his character Finn Hudson in a one-off episode, but says the tragedy has brought them all closer together:
"We've kind of got over that hump of the Cory tribute episode. I'm so happy we did that, it was incredibly tough, hard and emotional for everyone but we all came together, we were happy to be on the other side of that. We're a family and we all have a great relationship with each other, but that just really solidified us and made us stronger."
Matthew was scheduled to play a concert the night he heard Cory had passed away and though he considered cancelling the show, he was happy it went ahead as he found performing "therapeutic." He explained to Britain's OK! magazine, "I had two shows after he passed and thought about cancelling them but I didn't want to let people down, I didn't think Cory would want me to. The shows were so hard to do but I'm happy I did because there is nothing more therapeutic than singing."
Kanye West doesn't like how Keeping Up With the Kardashians is filmed.
The 36-year-old rapper, who is engaged to the reality show's star, Kim Kardashian, admits he refuses to appear on the E! series because he doesn't think the production is up to his "meticulous" standards. "I don't do her show just because I don't like the way the producer shoots some of the shots. I'm very particular to that. I'm meticulous right. And I like to get a different DP [Director of Photography] or whatever," The "Bound 2" hitmaker told New York's 92.3 NOW radio station.
Kerry Washington thinks her success is a "miracle."
The Scandal star, who is expecting her first child with her NFL star husband of four months, Nnamdi Asomugha, was terrified of becoming famous but she decided to become an actress because she loves telling stories.
"It's a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn't become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story," the 36-year-old beauty told the December/January issue of Lucky magazine.
Despite being considered one of the most beautiful and fashion savvy women in Hollywood, the New York-born star insists it takes a lot of work to make her look good and she doesn't compare herself to other actresses: "Even for me, I think it's a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like [Scandal character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o'clock in the morning. On the set, it's somebody's job to follow me around all day with spackle."
Although the story of Sleepy Hollow has been revisted many times before, FOX picked up a series that has managed to provide an interesting take on the tale as well as engaging viewers with a humorous man-out-of-time protagonist and his very own kick-a**, Scully-esque, WOC partner. Tom Mison, who portrays Ichabod Crane in the series, took some time to chat about what fans can expect in the rest of the first season.
When questioned about his character continuing to wear 18th century garb, Mison explained that the topic will be addressed very soon: "He’s a long way from home, and 250 years away from home so anything that he can hold on to from his time, I think he certainly will. Any time you think of how much he stinks, just think of it as a big stinking security blanket that he carries around with him."
So far, Crane has appeared as either brave yet courteous or curious and innocent in the modern day, but Mison promises that we will indeed see another side of him: "There are different sides to him, and equally the well behaved and the less well behaved; the more unhinged Ichabod. There’s plenty of that to come."

Behold, Veronica Mars fans - the latest trailer for the Kickstarter-funded film is online.
Naturally, the trailer/quasi-featurette poses the burning question the series left us with: Logan or Piz? The consensus among the cast is clearly Team Logan (who in my mind is always like the Spike to Veronica's Buffy), although do you find yourself rooting for good guy Piz? The trailer also gave us a peek at some of the returning guest stars like Ken Marino (Wanderlust), Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad), and Max Greenfield (New Girl).
Look out for the film to hit theaters next Spring!

+ Octavia Spencer has been cast as the lead for the upcoming NBC remake of Murder, She Wrote. While on the one hand I'm rejoicing that there's one more woman of color starring in a network program, I can't help but worry that TV is going to fall into Hollywood's current habit of incessantly choosing to produce remakes over original shows.
+ Speaking of unoriginal television, it has only been 7 years since Charmed aired its final episode, but apparently executives over at CBS think that it should already be rebooted. I guess perhaps this is the price we pay for American Horror Story: Coven being so damn good.
+ Apparently people are still tuning into MTV shows, because the former music video network has renewed Catfish for another season. I suppose it beats putting out another show involving teenagers and their unplanned pregnancies.
(American Horror Story: Coven spoilers after the jump!)
Just as American Horror Story: Coven has gotten you hooked and incessantly wondering how it's possible that each season of the show gets better than its predecessor, Jessica Lange drops the disparaging news that she'll be bowing out of the hit FX show after next season.
“I’ll do one more season. That’ll be it,” the two-time Academy Award winner said.
Here's to hoping that co-creator Ryan Murphy is correct in recently stating, “Every year, [Jessica Lange] says, ‘OK, that’s my last one.’"
In the meantime, Lange is enjoying her stay in New Orleans, where production for the horror anthology - which airs Wednesday nights on FX - continues: "[New Orleans] has this extraordinary ability to live in the past and the present. Time kind of melds. I don’t know any other place like that."

Jayma Mays says it wasn't her choice to leave Glee.
The redheaded beauty announced her departure from the long-running musical comedy earlier this year, but has now admitted the show's creators decided to write out her beloved character Emma Pillsbury: "It wasn't my choice. The creators decided to do it. We knew it was coming last year. Some other characters will also be leaving this season. It's very sad to be going, but I understand why they do it. It's about getting new blood into the show. I really enjoyed playing Emma. I don't know how I'm written out yet. I'm so curious."
Jayma recently appeared in Glee's emotional tribute to late leading actor Cory Monteith - who died from an overdose of heroin and alcohol in July - and she recalls the emotional atmosphere on set while making the episode. "It's been really hard. We just filmed his memorial episode and it was a very difficult thing to do. Just being there, you felt the absence of a friend and co-worker. It's been a very sad and difficult year for everyone," she explained.
