These 9 News Sites Top the Charts for Entertainment and Music Content

From time to time, an industry or subject inspires us to create a best-of list. These are sites that produce out of this world coverage in a crowded arena. In case you’ve missed some of these, you can find them here. If you think your site should be considered, give us a holler and tell us why.

Entertainment is a quick-moving, sometimes unpredictable industry, so keeping up with the pace can seem overwhelming.

Journalists for this beat know that it’s not for the faint of heart. They must be aggressive and focus on the minute details so that pop culture fans can get their daily fix.

Entertainment news is more than just celebrity gossip, although that’s definitely part of it.

Luckily, there are many news sites that not only stay up-to-date on real time news, but also provide artist interviews, new release reviews, and more. A couple of years ago, we took a closer look at 10 top news sites that rock their music and entertainment coverage.

Here’s our new list of some of favorite sites that are sure to keep you in-the-know with entertainment and music news.

1. The A.V. Club

“Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.” This pretty much sums it up.

The A.V. Club is published by The Onion, but don’t worry, the site offers real news, interviews, and features. There’s a great selection of in-depth profiles on movies, TV, and music you may not have heard of yet. The site also is just a lot of fun to explore.

Plan to stay here for a while because you’ll also get sucked in by A.V.’s sister sites like Deadspin, Gizmodo, and The Takeout, all accessible from the bar at the top of the page.

A.V. Club’s recommendations posts are some of my favorites. “What Are You Listening To?” is a weekly list of songs the writers are listening to, complete with a fun explanation for each choice and a Spotify playlist. “Watch This” is a weekly movie recommendation, usually inspired by new releases or premieres.

2. Upworthy

Upworthy has a unique mission to change what the world pays attention to and deliver “stories that are worth your time – and that make the world a better place.”

Started in 2012, Upworthy is usually credited with popularizing the heavily emotional, must-click headline style. Over the last few years, the site has moved toward creating more original articles and videos. In addition to entertainment news, you also can find stories on travel, food, beauty, and scientific discoveries.

The site offers entertainment news that’s uplifting and aims to bring readers together. It can be a breath of fresh air to read stories that just make you feel good.

Stories to read right now: Rainn Wilson gave a commencement speech to rich kids — and he got very real with them, Some of your favorite Muppets characters have surprisingly emotional backstories, She ditched a 9-5 to act. Now she’s starring in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Here’s her story.

3. Pitchfork

Pitchfork is an online magazine that we’ve recognized before, and it’s still deserving of a spot on the list. Founded in 1996, Pitchfork is called the most trusted voice in music and stages the popular Pitchfork Music Festival, now in its 13th year.

The site has daily coverage of indie rock, hip-hop, electronic, pop, metal, and experimental music. There’s a huge selection of thoughtful album and track reviews, as well as the ability to search for an artist and pull all their relevant news and reviews.

Search the “Lists & Guides” section for some interesting listicles and rankings, like the “200 Best Albums of the 1960s.”

4. Heavy

New York-based Heavy.com has been around longer than most people think – it was founded in 1999. The company also owns Ahoramismo.com, a Spanish language news and information portal.

Heavy became well-known for its regular “5 Fast Facts” articles. These posts aggregate key points about trending news and topics, making them a good source of information. The articles are interesting because they tend to focus on individuals who usually aren’t at the center of industry news.

If you’re looking to watch the latest episode of a show online, Heavy also provides details on where to find it. Heavy.com can be relied on to provide timely, straightforward news from the entertainment industry.

5. Vibe

Founded by music industry legend Quincy Jones, Vibe is a music and entertainment magazine that caters to a culturally diverse audience.

Vibe is considered hip-hop and R&B’s premier publication and cultural hub. There’s a large focus on music and in addition to album and song reviews, writers also review live performances.

Features include interviews with up-and-coming artists, actors, and music video directors, to name a few.

6. Vulture

Vulture is New York magazine’s culture and entertainment site. As the site explains, “Our staff celebrates culture both high and low, because you never know where you’ll find the next truly brilliant moment.”

In the TV section, Vulture has a great feature that allows you to select from some of the most popular shows on television and it will show you all the news for that program, including episode recaps, scheduling, and cast details.

Vulture’s music reporting includes music charts updates, looks at new music videos, and more.

7. Bandcamp

Bandcamp is all music, all the time. Its model is unique because in addition to the interviews, features, and “Album of the Day” posts, the site also has a streaming option and merchandise for fans so they can support their favorite artists right from the site.

The “Discover” option can be used to find new music filtered by location, format, genre, and even release date. The site also makes it convenient to listen to artists’ tracks by embedding a play bar in most articles.

The New York Times called Bandcamp “one of the greatest underground-culture bazaars of our time.” According to the Bandcamp site, the company’s mission is “to create the best possible service for artists and labels to share and earn money from their music, and for fans to discover and enjoy it.”

8. Variety

Variety is a weekly entertainment trade magazine that’s been around since 1905. Industry professionals trust Variety for its news, film reviews, box office results, business analyses, and more.

If you want to know which actor was cast in an upcoming film, read an album review for your favorite band, or check which TV show had the highest ratings last night, this is the place for you.

Another unique feature on the site, The Pilot Scorecard has up-to-the-minute listings of pilot and series orders, and you can filter by network, genre, and status.

9. Rolling Stone

No music and entertainment list would be complete without the iconic Rolling Stone. The biweekly magazine has been around since 1967 and still has its original publisher, Jann Wenner, as its current editorial director. The publication has a long legacy as a beloved magazine, and it’s also appeared on one of our previous posts.

In addition to the trusted Rolling Stone reviews and recommendations for music, movies, and TV, you can also find a mix of politics, sports, and culture news.

The magazine has a recently updated circulation of 650,000 readers and is also very active on social media. I especially enjoy scrolling through the posts on the Instagram account @rollingstone.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski Worried for Rudy Giuliani’s Welfare: ‘Someone Needs to Take Care of Him. It’s Abusive’Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is so ubiquitous on cable news These days that Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has asked networks to stop booking him because he will “willingly lie” to protect President Trump, but MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski wants him off TV for another reason.“Is there someone around him taking care of him?” The “Morning Joe” co-host asked Tuesday. “Someone needs to take care of him. It’s abusive.”Giuliani, 75, has been subpoenaed by the House in its impeachment inquiry into Trump. On Tuesday morning, “Morning Joe” played clips of him discussing the matter on Fox News. Also Read: Joe Biden Campaign to TV Networks: Stop Booking Rudy Giuliani“I actually feel sorry for the guy when I see him in the state he was in last night when I see him shuffling around, confused,” Said co-host Joe Scarborough. “I am just shocked and I know Republicans I’ve spoken with on the hill are shocked Donald Trump is letting this guy go out as a free agent, rambling around with apparently no game plan and no focus.” Also Read: Hillary Clinton Says 'Carefully Thinking Through' Isn't One of Rudy Giuliani's 'Strong Points' on 'The Late Show'(Video)Co-host Willie Geist agreed, asking, “I wonder who’s directing this operation? … Who said, ‘Let’s get Rudy on TV again?’ Is it to throw smoke screens up? Because every time he goes on TV, there’s another lie or another problem for Trump.”Scarborough lamented what he sees as Giuliani’s “decreased capacities” from when he was “America’s mayor,” calling it “sad” and “pathetic” To see what the lawyer has become: “Yes, it ruins his legacy, but more than that, I’m wondering who’s around Rudy Giuliani allowing him to continue to go out at night and embarrass himself on TV?” A request for comment from Giuliani was not immediately returned.

‘The King’s Man': Ralph Fiennes Makes World War I Look Fun in Latest Trailer (Video)
Just because “The King’s Man” is set during World War I at the beginning of the 20th century doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun.While the first trailer for “The King’s Man” made a point to show off style and class as a way of establishing how this prequel film differs from the two “Kingsman” films with Taron Egerton and Colin Firth, the latest look shows that the franchise still has a sense of humor.In it, we see Ralph Fiennes explaining the height of technology for 1914, a device that allows you to safely jump out of a plane called a “parachute.” He’s training the next class of super spy, a young man played by Harris Dickinson, to lead the fight during the first World War.Also Read: 'The King's Man' Trailer: Ralph Fiennes Trains Next Class of Super Spies in Prequel Story (Video)“Armed, yes.

Stormy Daniels to Get $450,000 Settlement After Arrest at Columbus Strip Club
Adult-film star Stormy Daniels has reached a $450,000 settlement with the city of Columbus, Ohio, to resolve a lawsuit she filed over her arrest while performing at a strip club in July 2018.“During today’s mediation, all parties agreed that a settlement of $450,000 was fair given the facts and circumstances involved,” Meredith Tucker, a spokeswoman for the city attorney’s office, said on Friday.Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was charged with three misdemeanor counts of illegally touching a patron at the city’s Sirens Gentlemen’s Club. The charges were dropped after 12 hours, and Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs soon called the arrest by four vice officers “a mistake.”Also Read: That Time Seth Rogen Appeared in a Film (or 2) With Stormy Daniels (Video)“While the presence of Vice officers at this establishment is reasonable, the motivations behind the officers’ actions will be reviewed internally to ensure that our Core Values and duty to serve our community to the best of our ability continue to be the basis for our actions,” Jacobs added.Daniels’ lawyer at the time, Michael Avenatti, called the arrest “a setup” and “politically motivated.” In a lawsuit filed against the city in January, Daniels said she was targeted by the vice officers because they were supporters of President Donald Trump and “entered into a conspiracy to arrest her” in retaliation for her public accusations that she had an extramarital affair with him before he became president.The Columbus police department’s vice unit was later the subject of a federal corruption investigation and was shut down in March shortly after one of its detectives was indicted on charges unconnected to the Daniels case, according to the New York Times.The settlement is subject to approval by the Columbus City Council.Read original story Stormy Daniels to Get $450,000 Settlement After Arrest at Columbus Strip Club At TheWrap

I got kicked out of my house by my wife, I was living on my own somewhere, I did not want that. Maybe as part of my upbringing, my family kind of disintegrated when I was a kid. Father left, mother passed away, had to live with my brother, and then kind of just, where did my stuff go? It just kind of floated away, and I do not want that happening. No matter what’s going on, we’re going to talk this stuff out, and make it work.”The statement by the band — which also includes drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Rob Trujillo — said that tickets already purchased would be refunded.According to the band’s website, Metallica’s March 28 benefit concert in San Francisco is still scheduled, as is a South American tour set to begin in April 2020.Read original story Metallica Scraps Rest of 2019 Tour as Lead Singer James Hetfield Enters Rehab At TheWrap

We may not get a puppy, we’re just here to look,” he said.Maher continued, saying he has “been hurt too many times” waiting for something impeachment-related. “Republicans are definitely the party of rednecks, but Democrats are the party of blue balls,” he joked.Also Read: NY Times Scrutinized for Repeatedly Interviewing the Same Trump Supporters in 'Swing Voters' StoryMaher also touched on the release of notes of the phone call Trump had with the president of Ukraine. “[Trump] asked for a favor,” Maher said. “At this rate, there’s some very serious questions, like, is there a foreign country he hasn’t asked to interfere in our elections?”Later on, Maher mentioned how the whistleblower complaint made public on Thursday said members of the Trump administration took steps to conceal compromised POTUS calls by storing them on a secret server. “Trump’s got treason on his computer like most men have porn,” Maher joked.“They are so comically inept at covering up the crimes they are committing,” Maher continued, noting the comical moment on Thursday when the Trump administration sent impeachment talking points to congressional Republicans, but also accidentally sent them to Democrats.“This is the political equivalent of sending a d—pic to your mom,” he joked.Watch the opening monologue above.Read original story Bill Maher on Impeachment Inquiry: ‘Trump’s Got Treason on His Computer Like Most Men Have Porn’ (Video) At TheWrap

‘Crisis on Infinite Earths': CW Reveals First-Look at Brandon Routh’s Superman
Brandon Routh has finally stepped back in Superman’s tights, with The CW releasing the first image of one of its three Men of Steel from its upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event.Routh previously portrayed the DC Comics hero in the 2006 film “Superman Returns.” However, as you can see below, the version Routh will play on the crossover is different. It’s based on the “Kingdom Come” version of Superman that starred in a four-issue series DC published under its Elsewords imprint. It’s set in the year 2020 and follows an older Man of Steel.Jordon Nuttall/The CWRouth will be joined by fellow Supermen Tyler Hoechlin, who plays the Superman that had shown up in the “Arrowverse” so far, as well as Tom Welling reprising his version of Clark Kent from “Smallville.” Also Read: 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Crossover Adds 'Black Lightning' and Bruce WayneRouth already plays a character in the CW universe, starring on “Legends of Tomorrow” as Ray Palmer aka The Atom, which he will play in the crossover as well. “Crisis on Infinite Earths” has an ever-growing roster of past and present DC Comics superheroes. These include the entire “Arrowverse” casts from “Supergirl,” “Arrow,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” newcomer “Batwoman,” and for the first time, “Black Lightning.” Erica Durance reprising her version of Lois Lane from “Smallville,” and “Batman” fan favorites Burt Ward and Kevin Conroy will appear as well. Ward is taking on an undisclosed role and Conroy will play an older Bruce Wayne from the future.View this post on Instagram “… I’m always around.” CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Superman @thecw @warnerbrostv @dccomics An amazing team put this together! Thank you to @vaxcodsng for leading the charge & design, Rory (and team) at HargateCostumes & Jose (and team) @ironhead_studio for building the suit, Mauricio @westerncostumecompany for the boots, @redheadtattoos for the hair, AmandaMcGowan & @tiarae9 for makeup, @thealexrossart for the artistic inspiration, and lastly @marcguggenheim for being crazy enough to pull this all together. ???????? ????: JusinNutallA post shared by Brandon Routh (@brandonjrouth) on Sep 27, 2019 at 12:32pm PDTOn Thursday, Ashley Scott joined the ever-expanding crossover event as Helena Kyle, aka The Huntress, bringing back the role she played in the short-lived WB series, “Birds of Prey.”The “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, one of DC Comics most famous storylines, will be The CW’s biggest. It will span five hours across all five “Arrowverse” shows, including newcomer “Batwoman,” and carry over the midseason break. The crossover begins Dec. 8 with “Supergirl.” That will be followed by “Batwoman” and “The Flash” on Dec. 9 and 10, respectively. “Crisis on Infinite Earths” will wrap up on Jan. 14 with “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” going back-to-back.Also Read: 'Arrow' Producers Say Final Season Will Be One Long Set Up to CW's 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' CrossoverCreated by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” was a best-selling 12-issue series running from 1985 to 1986 that replaced the DC multiverse, which since 1961’s “The Flash of Two Worlds” had explained the company’s varying and contradictory continuities, with a single streamlined universe and a complete reboot of most DC characters. It was a critical hit and a best-seller for DC and is credited with popularizing the idea of large-scale crossovers in comics.In the series, The Anti-Monitor, the evil counterpart of The Monitor (played by LaMonica Garrett in the “Arrowverse”), attempts to destroy all of the different universes with the goal of becoming the sole ruler of whatever is left. He’s eventually foiled but at a staggering cost: The surviving five universes are merged into one, and a huge number of classic DC characters are killed off, seemingly for good — including both Supergirl and Barry Allen/The Flash.Read original story ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths': CW Reveals First-Look at Brandon Routh’s Superman At TheWrap
