Quincy Jones

Quincy Jones has sued Sony Music Entertainment and MJJ Productions over Michael Jackson projects released after the singer's death in 2009, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The producer filed a $10 million breach-of-contract lawsuit over the This Is It film and soundtrack, the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil productions and the 25thanniversary edition of Bad, alleging that the master recordings he worked on were edited and remixed to deny him royalties and production fees.

Tyra Banks to Larry King: My Top Model Persona Is Not Me

Dinner with the Kings

Tyra Banks says her America's Next Top Model persona is far removed from who she really is.

Featured on Larry King's CNN special Dinner With the Kings, the supermodel said: "When I'm sitting there and have all this makeup on and I'm like, 'Your picture is not fierce,' that is a character. In real life I'm passive aggressive, I'm anti-confrontational, I'm even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational."

Rashida Jones, The Office: Is Karen Fated to Lose Jim?

Rashida Jones, The Office

When last we tuned in to NBC's The Office — which airs at a special time tonight, at 8 pm/ET — Jim seemed to be in harm's way, as Roy, finally clued into fiancée Pam's longings, declared Halpert "a dead man." Subsequent promos have suggested a follow-up more akin to a Law & Order squad-room brawl than our usual fun-loving Dunder-Mifflin gang. Just before TV Guide's Sexy Stars issue hit newsstands, we invited Rashida Jones (aka pages 52-53) to share a sneak peek. Plus, her take on SNL's Office spoof, and the NBC hitcom's parade of big-name directors. TVGuide.com: Tell me about the photo shoot you did for TV Guide's "Sexy" issue....Ras read more

In Praise of the SNL Parody

Hello, all. It's been another great week for The Office and the Office drunk. I'm the redhead at the corner desk. Wild week. Not the typical Meredith-takes-her-top-off wild. Just interesting-and-jam-packed wild. The Office has now crossed a new threshold: An SNL parody! That is a milestone. Rainn Wilson hosted this past week and kicked some major ass. He is one of the most talented actors who I will ever work with. The Office sketch in the opening was pretty cool. Lorne Michaels was more like "Lorne Michaels Scott." No Meredith, but that's OK. (It could have been a guy in drag. I love drag, but I am sure it would have been subpar drag.) Anyway, as a comic actress who has had my own SNL "almost" story, I was really happy to see the Office opening. When I was in Chicago in 1991, I was touring with Second City and I did a show called The Miss Vagina Pageant (directed by Jill Soloway, a writer-producer from Six Feet Under) at the Annoyance Theater, and Lorne Michaels came to see it and ... read more
