Miley Pastes Two on for Joan Jett
People wondered why Miley Cyrus was asked to induct Joan Jett into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Sunday night. Afterwards, they were just wondering what happened to the rest of her top. In typical outlandish Miley fashion, she wore a top with the breast areas removed - maybe designed to be missing, who knows. And to cover up her sensitive areas, a pair of pink heart-shaped pasties with a J on them. J J - for Joan Jett, get it? Here's a full recap of the Miley Joan moments.

Tidal Wave?
Jay Z's new streaming music service Tidal launched about a month ago. Last week, they threw the company's chief executive officer overboard - one of 25 people laid off. After a month. The official word is that the company is "streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience." A "handful of positions" were eliminated, allowing the company to refocus on departments that need support and to "cut redundancies." Word is that Jay Z and other of the service's top names have been personally calling subscribers to thank them. That doesn't sound desperate at all...

Tony Romo Continues to Struggle at Home
Bad enough that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo struggles year after year under center for America's Team. On Sunday, he showed up at the Academy of Country Music Awards show to introduce Dierks Bentley. But before he got to that, he had to do a little schtick with hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan. Watch the video, and tell me you wish you hadn't. The crowd loved the ball jokes, deflated and otherwise, which just proves that the beer was flowing in Dallas Sunday night...

Most Excellent Photobomb Surprise
Imagine you're an 8-year-old kid taking an official school photograph. And imagine the photographer showing you the picture on the screen of his camera. There's a guy in the shot behind you, and he looks like... DADDY! That's exactly what happened to Joshua Bass when his dad returned from a year-long deployment overseas. Dad photobombed Joshua's picture, and watch what happened...   ABC Breaking US News | US News Videos

Holy Parody, Batman!
You knew it would happen. Following the less-than-impressive drop of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer over the weekend, you knew that folks would start having their fun with it. This one happened sooner than I thought it would though. An enterprising YouTuber took the audio of the real trailer, and mashed it up with video from the original Superman movie starring Christopher Reeve and the old Batman TV series starring Adam West. And it is funny. Super funny.

Kermit's Cousin?
Scientists have found a new species of frog in Costa Rica: the Glass Frog. It's an amazing little amphibian, with a translucent belly that allows one to see its internal organs. Of course, folks in the mainstream media have to dumb it down, so what does this new frog resemble. Why Kermit, the Muppet frog, of course. And leave it to Matt Lauer to put the icing on the dumb-down cake: "How convenient to be able to see all your organs, you know what's missing..."

But Can She Sing Country?
The Academy of Country Music Awards were presented in Dallas last night at the AT&T Stadium. So many great performances. But this one had me shaking my head a little. Country legends Rascal Flatts teamed up with pop star Christina Aguilera. Both wonderful acts in their own rights. But together? I don't know. Something doesn't seem quite right. What do you think?

Amazing Baseball Improvisation
Here's something you don't see every day. Better yet, here's something you hardly ever see. Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester fielded a line drive back to him, and the ball got caught in the webbing of his glove. Rather than fight with it, he took the glove off and tossed it and the ball to the first baseman. The first baseman dropped his own mitt, caught Lester's, never dropped the ball, and the runner was out. Check it out.

Let It Go, Senator!
This is sort of cool - pun unintended. Senator Pat Roberts was questioning a witness at a Senate hearing on Thursday, and in the middle of the testimony, his cell phone rang. His ringtone? "Let It Go," from Disney's Frozen. The senator earned a few chuckles as he turned off the phone and told the witness to just "let it go." Funny stuff... Check out the video, and the senator's follow-up tweet.     Somebody had to tell the Obama Administration to "Let it go." #forthegrandkids — Pat Roberts (@SenPatRoberts) April 16, 2015

Super Disappointing?
There's been a lot of buzz about the Batman v Superman movie, especially centered on Ben Affleck's casting as the Dark Knight. But if the recently leaked and then released trailer for the movie is any indication, maybe Ben Affleck's not a problem. I've watched the trailer a half-dozen times, hoping to get as excited about it as with others released recently for other films. But I can't. It looks dark and disturbing. Isn't the job of a trailer to help make the film look the best it possibly can? The movie's not coming out for another year or so, so maybe they'll have the chance to fix things up...

What's This Ad For Again?
Okay, I get it. It's an ad for a woman's personal grooming project. But it takes a couple of times to figure it out. And upon reflection, is that the best area to introduce to a power tool? Meanwhile, I might get one to handle my unruly Bonsai bushes...

Where Did I Put Those Beanie Babies?
Imagine this. You're walking through a yard sale and you spot a purple Beanie Baby. Remember those little stuffed animals from the 90s that were all the rage? People collected them in the hopes that some day, they'd be worth much more than the face value. That didn't pan out, so they ended up in bins and bags in basements all around the world. Lots of them pop up in yard sales. So a couple in Cornwall, England spotted a purple one, and recognized it as a fairly rare one - a Princess Di Beanie Baby.  He grabbed it up, paying about $15 for it. And when he researched it, he found it was one of only 100 made, and could be worth up to $93,000. Now where did I put those Beanie Babies?

The All-Right is Strong with this One!
This is just too good not to share. The internet is going nuts with everyone's reaction to the latest trailer for the new Star Wars film. And then comes this mash-up, putting a scene from Interstellar together with the trailer, making it look like Matthew McConaughey is watching and reacting to it. And it's amazing.

Ellen vs. Matt Escalates
We're at war, people. Well, it's an early morning versus daytime war, between Matt Lauer and Ellen DeGeneres. The most recent salvo is Matt's. This comes after Ellen started jazzing up Matt's mornings with some racy Photoshopped clips. Matt retaliated by filling Ellen's car with 20,000 ping pong balls. Ellen sent her viewers to Rockefeller Plaza to test for Matt's tickle points. And now, Matt paid to have billboards erected around Los Angeles, showing Ellen as a plumber, butt-crack and all. Funny stuff. Even Ellen thinks so. No telling what will be next though... Look what I saw on my way to work today. Good one, @MLauer. #MattsRevenge pic.twitter.com/8QCUw5wqJM — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 16, 2015

Referee Trip & Fall Makes Highlight Reel
It's always funny to see someone take a fall - as long as the only thing hurt is a guy's ego, right? The other night, NBA referee Joey Crawford took a center-court face-plant during the Toronto Raptors home game against the Charlotte Hornets. It's tough to tell what he did - probably tripped over his own feet - but he did make a nice headfirst slide. What better way to watch than with a continuous Vine, right?

Scary Road to the CMAs
Lady Antebellum's singer Hillary Scott was on her tour bus, heading to Dallas for a week of shows culminating in the Country Music Awards this Sunday night. On Interstate 30 in Garland, a tire blew out and caused a fire. Everyone got out safely, but Hillary lost many of her personal belongings. Scary moments indeed. Glad to hear everyone's okay though.

50 Shades of... Wait! What Did You Do to Your Hair?
Dakota Johnson is between films right now. She completed 50 Shades of Grey and was just about everywhere on the promotional tour. And the word in the industry is that the sequel will start shooting fairly soon. So what's up with the new haircut? What has become her trademark Anastasia Steele long brown hair is now a bob. Boom. Let's hope she had permission. Check out the report from MM1 News. The read by the robotic and accented voice makes it almost hilarious.

The Force Continues to Awake...
Another official trailer is out for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, coming to theaters in December. In this one, Luke narrates over a variety of images - "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too." No one's saying who that you is - but I guess that's why they call this a teaser. It's great to see Han and Chewbacca ever so briefly at the end. I'm ready. How about you?

What's Going On at ESPN?
Seems like the folks who work at ESPN need to learn to keep their thoughts to themselves. You'll remember Keith Olberman got in some trouble not too long ago for tweets he made about Penn State and a fundraising effort there. Now ESPN reporter Britt McHenry got herself suspended for launching a tirade against a tow company's employee. It's pretty nasty - if you want to watch it, you'll have to go to this link - but don't do it at work. Britt apologized, but too little too late. She'll be off the air for a week. Others are calling for her to be let go entirely. What do you think?   In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and (cont) http://t.co/Wx37XF2QtM — Britt McHenry (@BrittMcHenry) April 16, 2015

The Newest Avenger
Ellen DeGeneres breaks another Hollywood secret. This time, it's all about the newest Avenger - the Honker. Okay, it's Ellen, inserting herself into the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron as a joke-telling horn-honking superhero standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk and the rest of the gang. This could make the movie even more interesting, don't you think?

Hard Enough to Play Real Drums...
It takes years to learn to play the drums. Even longer if you want to play them well. Imagine how much more difficult it must be to play the drums well if you're a marionette. Well, if you're the puppeteer manipulating the marionette, and the marionette is playing a drum set made of tin cans. And the marionette has to keep up with Rush's classic "Tom Sawyer." Impossible, you say? Think again and witness... It's pretty cool what's happening in this video.

Ah, Yes, the Buckingham Banana Peel!
The royal guards stationed outside Buckingham Palace in London are famous for their crisp movements and fierce focus. Tourists try all the time to get them to laugh - even just to crack a smile - to no avail. Which makes what happened on Tuesday even funnier. During a routine changing of the guard, one soldier somehow managed to slip and fall while shifting to one side. He got up quickly, but he was smiling a bit. He stopped very quickly, but it was caught on someone's cell phone - of course - and now it's gone viral. Have a look...

Carpool Karaoke, the Latest Craze
James Corden is starting off strong in his new gig on CBS's Late Late Show. Strong guests, strong performances, and strong skits. Like this one, where he's carpooling with Jennifer Hudson. When songs come on the radio, they have no choice but to sing along, now do they? And when they pull in to a drive-through, why not let Jennifer Hudson sing the order for you? All that and more. Funny stuff.

Josh & Kelly Team Up for Phantom Duet
If you're a fan of musical theater, you're of course familiar with Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera and one of its more beautiful tunes, "All I Ask of You." It's a haunting tune, really, and somewhat operatic. Enter Josh Groban and his new album, "Stages" - his salute to musical theater. He tackles the role of Raoul, opposite Kelly Clarkson's Christine. This is not your typical Phantom, and there's not a thing wrong with that. Give a listen.

The Epitome of TMI
Okay, maybe E! is starting to reach on its reality shows. Their show, Botched, features plastic surgery nightmares. And last night's season premiere focused on Tiffany Pollard, the self-professed queen of reality TV. The star of VH1's Flavor of Love decided to get breast augmentation surgery when she hit the big time - no pun intended - inspired by Dolly Parton. She's none too happy about the outcome, and of course, being the queen of reality TV, she doesn't mind sharing her story. I'm sort of wishing she hadn't...
