Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have a holiday question for you: Watch the video here

(500) Days of Summer fans will be happy to see that Tom and Summer appear to have worked things out—just in time for the new year.

Indie’s reigning prom king and queen—Deschanel’s even wearing a crown!—put their respective musical skills on display in this sing-along cover of the Nancy Wilson original “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” complete with (of course) a ukelele.

This is hardly the first time the actors have tried their hand at other artistic endeavors. In addition to recently getting a Golden Globe nod for her starring role as Jess on New Girl, Deschanel sings with She & Him and is a cofounder of the creative community/site HelloGiggles.

Gordon-Levitt too is a recent Golden Globe nominee for 50/50, and founded the collaborative production company HitRECord. He’s also no stranger to a well-placed musical number. READ FULL STORY

Jon Bon Jovi: Dead... or alive? (Hint: It was a hoax)

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated. Yesterday, 49-year-old rocker Jon Bon Jovi was the latest casualty of Internet rumors claiming he had died of a massive heart attack. Before fans could indulge in too much gnashing of teeth or plan an epic 21-can Aquanet salute synced to “Blaze of Glory,” Bon Jovi himself took to Facebook and Twitter to set the record straight with a cheeky pic (right) of himself holding a sign that read “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey Dec. 19, 2011 6:00.” READ FULL STORY

'SNL' star Taran Killam's awesome interpretation of Robyn's 'Call Your Girlfriend' video: Watch it here

As the host of last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, Katy Perry delivered a performance that was not quite as successful as fellow non-actress Taylor Swift’s outing but miles ahead of, say, (arguably also non-actress) January Jones.

And If nothing else, she proved that if her next solo album strikes out, she can always front a Florence + the Machine tribute act.

But the true highlight was musical guest Robyn, who spent the better part of the summer on the road with Perry as her opening act. The Swedish pop sensation acquitted herself nicely on the often-difficult SNL musical stage with both “Dancing on My Own” and “Call Your Girlfriend,” all while wearing truly impossible shoes.

Before she even took the stage, Robyn was clearly inspiring SNL cast members – especially Taran Killam, who delighted Towleroad when he turned on the camera at 4:30 in the morning last week to re-create Robyn’s video for “Call Your Girlfriend.”

With the help of a handful of other SNL regulars (including Bobby Moynihan operating the flashlight) and a very furry jacket, Killam nailed the clip’s low-budget, quirky charm with even more penny-pinching flare. Check it out below, and be ready to laugh as much as Vanessa Bayer does. READ FULL STORY

Chord Overstreet solo track 'Beautiful Girl' leaks! Listen here

He may have just made his triumphant return to Glee (with some swoon-worthy pining for Mercedes) but Chord Overstreet is also making some sweet music on his own.

In this just-leaked clip for a new original song, “Beautiful Girl,” Overstreet leaves McKinley High behind and sings a sweet piano-accompanied ode to the girl of his dreams. Sorry, Santana — it’s probably safe to say it’s not you.

With its upbeat melody and boy-band-ready odes of love for lyrics, the song will undoubtedly be a hit with the Glee set — no surprise from the guy who gave a pretty killer Justin Bieber impression last season.

Jennifer Lopez stars in another ad, this time for expensive stereos

While her album Love? won’t be showing up on Entertainment Weekly‘s list of the 10 best albums of 2011 (you can see that list in the issue that hits newsstands this Friday, by the way), Jennifer Lopez has ultimately had more ups than downs this year.

Sure, her marriage ended and she got involved in this debacle with Mick Jagger and will.i.am, but Love? sold well, “On the Floor” shot her back up the charts, and she received consistently high marks for her run on American Idol.

She also cashed quite a few checks from the likes of car manufacturer Fiat, cosmetics company L’Oreal, and now fancy home-theater masterminds Harman/Kardon. In the new commercial, Lopez presides over a symphony of destruction that somehow acts as a metaphor for sonic self-improvement and contemporary comfort. Or something.

Adele or Faux-dele? Watch the singer's doppelganger in new 'Set Fire to the Rain' video

Adele better hurry up and release the official video for her third single off 21, because it looks like she’s got some (scarily similar) competition.

In this decidely non-official video for the soul star’s upcoming official third single “Set Fire to the Rain,” the song is reimagined as a love triangle between a woman, her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s lover, who appears to be stealing him away with some modern dance. Watch the clip, intercut with moody, hidden-in-the-shadows shots of Adele (or “Adele”), below:

British Navy lipsync Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You': I'm On a Boat edition!

Here at EW, we love a good Christmas lip dub. And this heartwarming frolic on the high seas is no exception.

According to the video description, the crew of the HMS Ocean found out they would all get to be going home for the holidays after 214 days at sea, and they just had to celebrate–sometimes shirtless.

It turns out that Christmas joy means the same thing on a boat as it does everywhere else: Breaking out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and dancing your Santa-loving heart out.

Watch the crew’s explosion of Christmas cheer, including elaborate impromptu costumes (made only with things they had aboard — crafty!), high kicks and more below: READ FULL STORY

Because she ruled everything else this year: Adele is now tweeting!

Though you cannot technically set fire to the rain, you can light up the internet. Temporarily silenced Adele is now Tweeting @officialadele.

The handle has been in use for a while — with her production company giving admirers updates, such as her recent six Grammy nominations. Up until now, however, Adele herself has been mum. But it seems even the “Someone Like You” star can’t resist the lure of hashtags and retweets.

Yesterday she made her debut, writing, “Right! Its me! I will start tweeting if 10k of u start following @drop4drop &their trip to India this wk. Its a wonderful charity. Go! A xxx”

Naturally, Adelaholics immediately rose to the challenge, hoping to hear more from the 21 songstress.

The cheeky gal (seriously, check out her blog) seems to be holding  up well after her vocal cord surgery. After rabid fan response to her first tweet, she shared a photo, posing in front of a Beyoncé poster, saying, “”F*ck me that was quick! ThankU! I’m in bed, watchin Gladiator, eatin an apple. Here’s a pic of me & Queen B last wk in NYC! X.”

Donning her best fierce face and pretending to be Bey? Stars! They’re just like us.

George is the Beatle most horrified by Ke$ha

A rabble-rouser on Buzzfeed got thousands of people outraged today with this list of 12 Extremely Disappointing Facts About Popular Music. The one below struck me as the most visually disturbing. Why didn’t Photoshop melt down as a drunk and disorderly Muppets extra was placed next to The Beatles? Does the answer lie in the space between Ke$sha’s boobs? So many questions.

I’ve come up with a way to cope, though: Imagine that all of the Beatles are facially reacting to the horror show at their right. Ringo is being so polite and cautious about it, probably because he’s the closest to the danger. John is willfully oblivious, while Paul looks just slightly more dead inside than Ke$ha. George wins this stinkface competition by a long and winding mile. (I feel like he’d also take the most convincing Facebook self-portraits in iPhoto. I hate myself!)

See? It’s easy if you try. Feel better now? [Buzzfeed]

Demi Lovato's hair makes a run for it in concert: Watch the video here

The weave: For fairytale princesses, it’s perfect. For everyone else, (even you, pop stars) it’s an accident waiting to happen.

Demi Lovato was performing over the weekend when she had a little situation involving some dancing, some costumes and some runaway extensions. Namely, Ms. Lovato went one hair toss too far, and her weave came tumbling down.

Girl worked it like a pro, though — she doesn’t even blink. It takes some serious attitude to have something that was just on your head now clinging desperately to your sparkly stage blazer and just keep trucking, but she struts it out and finishes the number like a boss.

Check out the blurry video below: (The hair horror begins around :45) READ FULL STORY
