It’s totally fine to let your kids listen to Gwen Stefani now — at least, Melissa Villaseñor’s Stefani. On Monday’s “Tonight Show,” the “SNL” player blew Jimmy Fallon away in “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” which kicked off with the sketch-comedy actress doing “Three Blind Mice” as the No Doubt singer.

Fallon tried to keep up with Post Malone and some heavy autotune, but the NBC host never stood a chance last night.

Villaseñor then followed up with Christina Aguilera getting into some “Pinocchio” stuff. It was all killer.

She wrapped the recurring segment as Björk. Enjoy the free lullaby, Icelandic babies.

Watch the video above.

“Saturday Night Live” returns to NBC on Nov. 3.

Jimmy Kimmel keeps taking his fellow entertainers down a peg. The ABC late-night host made musicians read “Mean Tweets” on Tuesday, timed to the night’s American Music Awards (AMAs).

Towards the tail-end of the regular bit, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” viewers find out that even metal band Korn can’t stand rockers Nickelback.

“Korn. F–k those guys more than nickelback,” one “Mean Tweet” read.

The Korn boys all cringed at that one.

“That’s low, dog,” one said.

“Ouch,” another added.

Pretty good, but the below are our favorites. Each was read by their respective insulted musician(s):
“One of my employees was talking about how the chainsmokers are actually pretty good and don’t deserve all the hate. So I fired him.”

“Why is Jason Mraz the unofficial soundtrack for s–t BBQs?”

“P!ink is aging pretty well for a pig.”

Also tortured in the segment are Gwen Stefani, Tyga, Imagine Dragons, Halsey, Luke Bryan, Jason Derulo, Dua Lipa, The Strokes, Pink, Elvis Costello, ScHoolboyQ, G-Eazy, Luke Combs, and Nickelback themselves.

Watch the video above.

Be sure to stick around for the whole thing. At the very end, the most-hated band on the planet lets viewers in on how they make their (s—ty) music.

Gwen Stefani Did NOT Steal a Song From Her Former Hair Stylist, Judge Finds

Gwen Stefani has worked a gnarly legal entanglement out of her hair.

“Hollaback Girl” singer Stefani and Pharrell Williams have been cleared in a copyright infringement claim by a man who said he had styled Stefani’s hair, with a judge finding Tuesday that the 2014 tune “Spark the Fire” did not infringe on the plaintiffs’ work.

Richard Morrill filed suit in January 2017, saying that he had played his song “Who’s Got My Lightah” for Stefani while styling her hair. According to the suit, Stefani “commented that she liked it and accepted Richard’s offer of a CD with ‘Who’s Got My Lightah’ on it.”

Also Read: Gwen Stefani Sued by Fan Who Says Her Leg Was Broken During Concert ‘Stampede’

Lo and behold, the lawsuit claimed, Stefani’s “Spark the Fire” was released in 2014, and the song bears remarkable similarities to Morrill’s. To wit, the suit claimed, the lyrics to “Who’s Got My Lightah” read, “Who’s got my lightah? Who got the fire? Who’s got my lightah? Who’s got my little lightah?” with “fire” pronounced “fi-ya,” while those of “Spark the Fire” read, “Who got the lighter? Let’s spark the fire. Who got the lighter? Let’s spark the fire” — again, with “fire” pronounced “fi-ya.”

However, in an order handed down Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Dolly M. Gee saw things otherwise, granting Stefani and the other defendants’ motion for summary judgment.

In the order, Gee found that Morrill couldn’t prove that “Spark the Fire” infringed on either his 1996 song “Who’s Got My Lightah” or his 2009 derivative work, “Who’s Got My Lighter.”

Also Read: Gwen Stefani Sued by Former Hairdresser for Allegedly Stealing ‘Spark the Fire’

“Based on the undisputed evidence, Morrill cannot show substantial similarity because he cannot satisfy the extrinsic test for either of the Protected Songs,” the order reads.

“In light of the foregoing, the Court: 1. GRANTS Defendants’ motion for summary judgment on Morrill’s claim for direct copyright infringement of 1996 Lightah and 2009 Lighter; and 2. GRANTS Defendants’ motion for summary judgment on Morrill’s claims for contributory and vicarious copyright infringement,” the order adds.

Trump White House’s First State Dinner High on Pomp, Low on Star Wattage

Donald Trump’s first state dinner for French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte will include 120 guests, a cream and gold color scheme, rack of spring lamb for the main course and white floral centerpieces of sweet peas and white lilacs.

What it won’t have is Hollywood glamour.

Celebrities have long been a staple of Washington state dinners. But unlike, say, the Obama years, which featured the likes of Beyoncé, Steven Spielberg and James Taylor, this year’s event is low on star wattage, with the Washington National Opera serving as the featured entertainment.

Except for Melania Trump’s broad-brimmed white hat earlier in the day, which drew immediate comparisons to “Scandal’s” Olivia Pope, perhaps the only other Hollywood connection at the state dinner was movie-financier-turned-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Also Read: Rupert Murdoch to Attend Trump White House’s First State Dinner

Among the non-politics celebs who arrived at the Mount Vernon dinner were Apple CEO Tim Cook, Rupert Murdoch and his wife Jerry Hall, Olympic curler John Shuster, and women’s hockey player Meghan Duggan. On the politics side, Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, economic adviser Larry Kudlow, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen, Chief Justice John Roberts, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, aide Stephen Miller, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Henry Kissinger, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were there.

The lone Democrat invited was Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, whose office confirmed to TheWrap he and his wife will be attending.

In contrast, the Obama’s first state dinner for then-Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur in 2009 was held in a tent on the South Lawn of the White House. The dinner included 400 guests, including Steven Spielberg, Katie Couric and actors Blair Underwood and Alfre Woodard.

It was also the year when a couple of party crashers made headlines: Tareq and Michaele Salahi. The Washington socialites were filming “Real Housewives of D.C.,” and made an entrance even though their names were not on the list.

The Obamas’ list of Hollywood celebs famously included Beyoncé, who headlined the 2010 state dinner for Mexico’s then-President Felipe Calderón and his wife, Margarita Zavala. Angela Merkel had a friend in James Taylor during her state dinner in 2011. British Prime Minister David Cameron got to enjoy some John Legend and Mumford and Sons in 2012. And Mary J. Blige had gave some real love to Macron’s predecessor, François Hollande during his state dinner in 2014.

The Obama’s last state dinner, for Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini in 2016, featured a who’s who of Hollywood A-listers. Gwen Stefani, former racing driver Mario Andretti, fashion designer Georgio Armani, celebrity chef Mario Batali, Disney lobbyist Richard Bates, and actor Roberto Benigni, who won an Oscar for 1999’s “Life Is Beautiful” were among the dinner guests.

Republican presidents typically have a harder time wrangling A-listers for their dinners.

First lady Laura Bush’s first state dinner was an intimate dinner honoring then-Mexican President Vicente Fox and his wife, Martha Sahagun de Fox in 2001.  The guest list included tenor Placido Domingo, Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green, after-dinner entertainment soprano Dawn Upshaw and the lone Hollywood representative, Clint Eastwood.

Other celebrities attending state dinners during the Bush years include country crooner Kenny Chesney in 2006, famed violinist Itzhak Perlman in 2007 and the Broadway production of “The Lion King” in 2008.

‘SNL’ Auditions Just About Every ’90s Star for ‘Jurassic Park’ (Video)

“SNL” advertised the 25th anniversary of the 1993 release of “Jurassic Park” with a parody of audition screen tests that featured just about every famous actor — from 1992.

The “SNL” auditions included just about every big-name Hollywood and TV actor and comedian who was a big deal in 1992, making the sketch into not only a hilarious series of impressions that featured most of the “SNL” cast, but also a nostalgia trip for a different time in entertainment history.

The sketch kicked off with Alex Moffat as Hugh Grant, auditioning for the role of Dr. Alan Grant, which Sam Neill actually played in the movie. Other high-profile 1990s stars to pop up at the casting call included Pee-Wee Herman (played by Mikey Day), comedian Sinbad (played by Kenan Thompson), Whoopi Goldberg (Leslie Jones), Drew Barrymore (Heidi Gardner), Gwen Stefani (Melissa Villasenor) and Adam Sandler (Pete Davidson).

Chris Redd’s impression of Wesley Snipes — at the time one of the biggest action stars in the world — included some truly bad financial advice. Snipes, who popped up to voice a cartoon called Mr. DNA that explains how dinosaur cloning works in the film, told someone off-screen that the IRS can’t tax your money if you spend it. Of course, in real life, Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison for failing to file federal tax returns.

Kate McKinnon popped up with several auditions for the “SNL” sketch, including as the low-key 1990s version of Ellen DeGeneres and “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow. McKinnon also channeled Jodie Foster as her “Silence of the Lambs” character, Clarice Starling — a performance for which Foster won the Best Actress Oscar. When the producers asked McKinnon’s Foster to try her Mr. DNA audition a little happier, she whispered, “This is the happiest I’ve ever been; it’s my birthday.”

Kenan Thompson had a couple of turns during the sketch, but his funniest was as O.J. Simpson, telling producers how he “hypothetically” would have released the dinosaurs from their pens, a major plot point in the movie. The joke was a reference to the 2007 book “If I Did It,” which includes Simpson’s “hypothetical” descriptions of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994. Simpson was accused of the crimes but acquitted.

“Man, 1992. It is good to be O.J. right now,” Thompson’s O.J. went on.

The “SNL” episode’s host, Bill Hader, also turned up to offer quite a few impressions, including Alan Alda (as Muldoon, the English game warden for the park famous for the line “Clever girl,” before getting eaten by dinosaurs), and Al Pacino as John Hammond, the eccentric park owner who was played by Richard Attenborough in the movie. Hader’s Pacino had a particularly rough time during the audition, ending his line — “Welcome to Jurassic Park” — with the improv exclamation, “You dumb f—!”

When the producers let Pacino know that the movie was meant to be PG, Pacino pretty much took himself out of the running.

Twitter Outs Secretly Cool and Nice Celebrities

With the outpouring of horrific accusations leveled against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and numerous other show-biz heavyweights in recent weeks, the world could perhaps use some reminding that not every celebrity is (allegedly) a serial sexual harasser.

Presumably with that in mind, a Twitter user going by the handle Bakoon threw open his account to the public Friday, asking for testimonials about the positive things celebrities have done.

“If anyone has any nice allegations against a celebrity that would be great too. does a famous actor give good christmas presents. does lady comedian alwyays [sic] smoke people out,” the tweet read.

Since then, the tweet has been flooded with responses from people offering their testimonials about positive interactions with celebrities, interactions that did not involve sullied potted plants or requests for a masturbation viewing.

“Lou Diamond Phillips stuck up for me against a really rude customer at a coffee cart I used to work at,” offered one responder, who also claimed to have down-to-earth interactions with ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, musician Kenny G and actor Cuba Gooding Jr., among other high profile names.

“David Tennant not only graciously accepted an academic paper from a random fan in the Richard II stage door line but actually read it and sent me an appreciative note about it,” read another testimonial.

“Salma Hayek danced with my little sister at a party once, as did Shannon [sic] Doherty, and Spice Girl Mel C played Connect 4 with her,” author and former child actress Mara Wilson wrote. “Lucy Liu was so incredibly kind and lovely when we worked together when I was nine that she became one of my first big crushes.”

Wilson also laid claim to positive interactions with singer Gwen Stefani, “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm and actor Dylan McDermott.

“Danny DeVito tipped $120 to have two cases of wine one delivered one block to his apartment,” chimed in another Twitter user.

“Tyler Perry is a great tipper and generally very nice to service workers. Jane Fonda is an absolute delight in every way, one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life,” read another response.

Gwen Stefani Sued by Fan Who Says Her Leg Was Broken During Concert ‘Stampede’

When they say “break a leg” in show business, this usually isn’t what they mean.

Gwen Stefani is being sued by a woman who says that her leg was broken after the “Hollaback Girl” singer incited a “stampede rush” by the crowd during her concert in North Carolina last year.

According to the suit, filed in federal court in North Carolina on Friday, Lisa Keri Stricklin attended the July 2016 show with her friends, to celebrate her birthday.

Also Read: Gwen Stefani Sued by Former Hairdresser for Allegedly Stealing ‘Spark the Fire’

But the birthday ended up being anything but happy for Stricklin, the suit contends, after Stefani called for attendees with lawn seats at the PNC Pavilion to make their way closer to the stage.

“During the course of and in the midst of Stefani’s musical performance, Stefani unilaterally announced via her microphone and the loud speakers throughout PNC Pavilion that all patrons in the lawn seating area should come to the reserved seating area and the front of the performance stage, including announcing ‘Just fill in anywhere you like! Who cares about your lawn chairs? You can get new ones!’” the suit reads. “This announcement created a stampede rush of patrons from the lawn seating area through the reserved seating area and toward the front of the performance stage, with people knocking over and breaching the security barricades and other security matter, jumping over seats in the reserved seating area, and pouring in through the aisles separating the various sections of the reserved seating area.”

According to the suit, Stricklin “was trampled by the rush of patrons and into a wall along the reserved seating area, causing her severe physical injuries, including but not limited to a broken tibia in one of her legs.”

“Stefani’s negligent acts as alleged herein constitutes gross negligence, as it amounted to wantonness, willfulness, or evidenced a reckless indifference to the consequences of her acts, entitling the Plaintiff to punitive damages,” the suit adds.

Live Nation Entertainment is also mentioned in the suit.

Alleging negligence, the suit is seeking damages “in excess of $75,000.”

TheWrap has reached out to Stefani and Live Nation for comment.

Is Gwen Stefani’s ‘Baby Don’t Lie’ a Knockoff of a Swedish Dance Track? (Audio)

When they say “break a leg” in show business, this usually isn’t what they mean.

Gwen Stefani is being sued by a woman who says that her leg was broken after the “Hollaback Girl” singer incited a “stampede rush” by the crowd during her concert in North Carolina last year.

According to the suit, filed in federal court in North Carolina on Friday, Lisa Keri Stricklin attended the July 2016 show with her friends, to celebrate her birthday.

But the birthday ended up being anything but happy for Stricklin, the suit contends, after Stefani called for attendees with lawn seats at the PNC Pavilion to make their way closer to the stage.

“During the course of and in the midst of Stefani’s musical performance, Stefani unilaterally announced via her microphone and the loud speakers throughout PNC Pavilion that all patrons in the lawn seating area should come to the reserved seating area and the front of the performance stage, including announcing ‘Just fill in anywhere you like!

20 Actresses Who Stole Marilyn Monroe’s Style

Marilyn Monroe died far too young in 1962 but her influence on fashion and style has never lessened, even on the occasion of what would have been her 91st birthday. Whether it’s in a music video, on the red carpet, on a magazine cover or everyday style, countless stars have copped the iconic actress’ signature look.

Madonna
Madonna is arguably just as big an icon as Marilyn Monroe — in her own way, of course. But even Madge replicated looks from the Hollywood legend. The most recognizable, perhaps, is in the music video for her hit song “Material Girl,” where Madonna copies Monroe’s iconic performance of “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” from the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blonds”

Scarlett Johansson

As the face of Dolce and Gabbana’s 2009 cosmetics campaign, Johansson replicated Monroe’s signature blond locks and bold red lip for the fashion house.

Michelle Williams

Williams transformed into the icon for her role as Monroe in the 2011 movie “My Week With Marilyn.”

Mariah Carey

The “Dreamlover” has long said that Monroe is her beauty icon and over the years, Carey has clearly taken inspiration from some of Monroe’s iconic outfits. Here she is channeling the look from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.”

Anna Nicole Smith

Smith lived in Monroe’s house, and claimed to have seen her ghost roaming the halls. She posed in several photoshoots looking like Monroe. Here she’s pictured in a campaign for Guess channeling the iconic actress.

Lindsay Lohan

In 2008, Lohan recreated the famous last photo shoot of Marilyn Monroe, known as “The Last Sitting” and photographed by Bert Stern. For the cover of New York Magazine, Stern and Lohan came together to reimagine the shoot with Monroe.

Gwen Stefani

Stefani is recognizable for her platinum blonde hair, and she often rocks the bright red lip, too, just like Monroe.

Christina Aguilera

Aguilera is another singer who copies Monroe’s signature look in her day to day style with platinum hair and red lips. She’s done several photoshoots mimicking the icon.

Lady Gaga

In 2011, Lady Gaga posted this tribute to Monroe on Twitter, saying “#HappyBirthdayMarilyn They’ll never take our blonde hair and lipstick.”

Drew Barrymore

In 1996, Barrymore posed on the cover of George magazine in the look Monroe made infamous when she sang “Happy birthday, Mr. President” to JFK during a 1962 Democratic Party fundraiser.

Rihanna

Riri’s song “Love Without Tragedy” gives a shout out to Marilyn: “Red lip stick, rose petals, heart break/I was his Marilyn Monroe.” She posted this throwback on Instagram, channeling Monroe with short blonde hair.

Amber Heard

Heard has channeled the 50s pinup look several times. One of her most notable Monroe-copycat sessions was for this 2011 Guess campaign.

Paris Hilton

Hilton dressed as Monroe for the launch of her fragrance, “Tease,” in 2010.

Katy Perry

Perry starred in a German commercial in 2010 set to her single “Teenage Dream.” The spot clearly drew inspiration from one of Monroe’s most famous scenes in the 1955 film “The Seven Year itch,”

Candice Swanepoel

Model Candice Swanepoel transformed into the classic Hollywood star for Max Factor in 2015.

Angelina Jolie

In the 2002 movie “Life or Something Like It,” Jolie is almost a mirror image of Monroe, even posing the same.

Debbie Harry 

Vanity Fair once called her a “New Wave Marilyn Monroe for the 70s and 80s.” And with the short blonde hair and stardom, Harry definitely channels the Hollywood legend.

Kim Kardashian

For a Vogue Brazil cover, Kardashian posed in Monroe’s signature platinum ‘do and classic look.

Penelope Cruz

In the 2009 movie “Broken Embraces,” Cruz dons a short, curly blonde wig in the signature style of Monroe.

Nicki Minaj

Like Rihanna, Minaj has given tribute to Monroe in her music. Her song “Marilyn Monroe” from her album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” begins “I can be selfish/Yeah, so impatient/Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe.”

Brad Grey Mourned by Steven Spielberg, Leo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr. in Private Service

Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan Downey were among the Hollywood luminaries who gathered to mourn Brad Grey in a private service on Thursday.

Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen and Gwen Stefani were also present, one attendee said.

The private reception was held at Grey’s home, the person told TheWrap. A public memorial is expected to follow in the coming weeks.

Grey died of cancer on Sunday surrounded by his children and wife Cassandra. His estate, once owned by Frank Sinatra, sits in the Holmby Hills enclave of Los Angeles.

The manager-mogul’s death shocked the entertainment community. The news inspired stunned and saddened reactions from colleagues like Disney CEO Bob Iger, current Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos and Universal Vice Chairman Ron Meyer, as well as famed directors like Martin Scorsese.

Grey got his start in Hollywood while studying at the University of Buffalo, where he met Miramax founder Harvey Weinstein and assisted him with his concert promotion business. From there, he moved into stand-up comedy promotions, during which time he met Bernie Brillstein, the man with whom Grey would co-found Brillstein-Grey Entertainment.

Through Brillstein-Grey, Grey started a career as a producer that put his name on some of the best-known programs on television, including HBO megahits like “The Sopranos” and “Real Time with Bill Maher.” He earned multiple Golden Globes, BAFTAs, PGAs and Emmy Awards, as well as  four Peabody Awards.

Grey was Paramount Picutres Chairman and CEO from 2005 to 2017.

He is survived by his wife, their son Jules, his three children Sam, Max and Emily from his marriage to Jill (nee Gutterson) Grey, his mother Barbara Schumsky, his brother Michael Grey and his sister Robin Grey.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine of USC.
