<![CDATA[Slash Visits 'School of Rock' Cast]]> Thu, 28 Jul 2016 07:02:42 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/SLASH+SURPRISES+SCHOOL+OF+ROCK+-+00003401_WNBC_000000012515703.jpg

The kid band at the heart of the Broadway musical "School of Rock" got a surprise guest during rehearsal - Guns N' Roses star Slash.

The guitarist made a surprise appearance Friday while the pre-teen band was practicing the Guns N' Roses song "Sweet Child O' Mine." He then joined in with young guitarist Brandon Niederauer, who seemed delighted.

Singer Bobbi MacKenzie didn't notice the musician until after the song, covering her mouth in surprise. After shaking hands with the kids, Slash joined them on "Paradise City."

The musical stays close to the plot of the Jack Black-led 2003 film, in which a wannabe rocker enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands.

Slash is touring with Guns N' Roses.

"Saturday Night Live" returned from summer vacation for a second Wednesday in a row for a special segment on day three of the Democratic National Convention, with jokes that ranged from despondent Bernie Sanders supporters to a love story that failed to mention a sex scandal.

"There's been so much passion and enthusiasm here — only problem was, most of it was for the guy who lost," "Weekend Update" co-host Colin Jost said, referring to Sanders.

They then showed images of Sanders supporters in the convention hall who were in tears.

"Look at all these white girls crying — they look like Dave Matthews just played 'Crash Into Me,'" co-host Michael Che joked. "What are you so sad about? You're gonna be fine. What do you think is going to happen if Bernie Sanders doesn't get to be president? You still get to be white."

<![CDATA[2 Arrested for Extortion Attempt of 'Snapchat Queen' YesJulz]]> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:56:05 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/wesley+victory+henchav+voigt+mugshots.jpg

Two South Florida residents were arrested after allegedly threatening to leak sexually explicit photos of social media star "YesJulz" if the South Beach model didn't paid them thousands of dollars.

Hencha Voigt, 28, and 33-year-old Wesley Victor were taken into custody Friday on charges of extortion.

According to police, the duo contacted Julieanna Goddard, who was crowned the queen of Snapchat by The New York Times earlier this year, and claimed to have X-rated photos and videos of her.

Victor sent Goddard several pictures as proof and gave her 24 hours to pay them $18,000, saying they would publish the pictures and videos on social media if she didn't pay, Miami Beach Police said. 

Voigt and Victor were waiting in a car on Miami Beach when they were approached by authorities. Investigators found the phone they believed was used for the extortion. Voigt, who is also a model, admitted to the crime while Victor’s attorney denies his client had any involvement.

"At this time this is only an allegation and we're waiting for our day in court so we could clear Mr. Victor of all these charges," attorney Zeljka Bozanic said. "I don't have any evidence at this point, I don't have anything that the police is able to link my client to this crime. And from my understanding, all they have is a cell phone that was recovered from a car that does not belong to my client."

YesJulz has acrued a social media base including over 300,000 viewers on Snapchat, nearly 390,000 on Instagram and 127,000 on Twitter. Goddard's popularity has landed marketing deals with both Puma and Red Bull, and the socialite has been seen partying with celebrities like LeBron James and French Montana.

<![CDATA['Sharknado 4': A Return to Summer Camp]]> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:10:26 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/Sharknado2Effect11.jpg

During an episode from the latest season of "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Titus Andromedon explains the lack of activity at a construction site by passing along some insider information from his hardhat boyfriend: "Mikey told me 'Shark Week' is now a union holiday."

If Discovery's annual salute to the sharp-toothed guardians of the ocean warrants a vacation, then Syfy's upcoming latest "Sharknado" installment marks Christmas in July. "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens" arrives on Sunday, offering a refreshing splash of summer camp at a time when we all could use a break from real disasters.

It's been three years since the first legions of insatiable sharks got swept up in a tornado and attacked Los Angeles, becoming an instant and unexpected pop culture phenomenon – essentially sharks propelled by Twitter snark. The gloriously silly TV movie represented less a commentary on global warming than a spoof of 1970s disaster flicks, complete with hammy acting and the greatest chainsaw-aided escape from the jaws of death in entertainment history.

The laughter spawned sequels in 2014 (the sharks invade New York) and 2015 (sea-dwelling sharks swallow political sharks in Washington) as the series got better by getting worse.

Pushing most movie franchises past three installments, as George Lucas learned the hard way, doesn't always fly with fans. So perhaps it’s appropriate that the title of the new "Sharknado" chapter plays off "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens."

Timing might help the odds of success for "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens," in which the airborne predators hit the Las Vegas strip. There's an almost Trumpian theme to the series – warnings of disaster awaiting us at every turn – not to mention some more direct Donald Trump links: In the last "Sharknado," Mark Cuban, another rich guy from TV (he's a mainstay of "Shark Tank") and a frequent Trump critic, did a great job playing an over-the-top tough-guy president in last year's installment.

Gary Busey and Cheryl Tiegs, both veterans of "Celebrity Apprentice," join this year's cast. Returning as the aptly named Fin, the only man able to protect us against the flying sharks, is Ian Ziering, whom Trump fired "Celebrity Apprentice" after the actor set a booze jingle to "La Cucharacha." Tara Reid (whose character apparently survived a does-she-live-or-die online poll) and David Hasselhoff round out the C-list cast of the B-movie parody.

If nothing else, "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens," offers a chance to veg out as the carnivorous sharks chow down. We might not need a week to celebrate, but the laughs hopefully will make some uncertain weeks ahead more bearable.

<![CDATA[Questlove Talks 'Oprah Rule' of His Philadelphia Childhood]]> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:46:04 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/slack-imgs.com.jpg

Questlove, the drummer for The Roots, the house band on "The Tonight Show," recalled that while growing up in Philadelphia, his parents enforced the "Oprah rule" to keep him off the streets after school.

He was expected to be home before Oprah Winfrey’s talk show came on at 4 p.m.

"My parents were like, 'you want to come straight home. Do not let that 'Oprah' theme come on and you're not in this house," Questlove, whose birth name is Ahmir Thompson, told "Today's" Matt Lauer in an interview that aired Wednesday morning.

The Roots, Questlove said, started out by busking on Philadelphia streets in 1987 with the aim of "earning date money." The word spread about them in the hip-hop community, leading to bigger shows. The Roots served as the house band on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" from 2009 to 2014, and in the same role on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", since 2014.

Questlove, who's also a music producer and a DJ, discussed some of his favorite moments on "The Tonight Show," describing one performance with Bruce Springsteen that drove the audience wild.

"It looked like the yuppie version of the 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' video," he said.

Questlove reminisced about weekends where he would go with his father, a doo-wop singer, to the record store and return home with a trunk full of vinyl.

"He'd buy like 200 records at a time," said Questlove. "I was in a house with 5000 records."

He said his family's dedication to music is what made him successful.

"They literally saved my life, he said.

<![CDATA[Susan Sarandon, Sarah Silverman Ignite DNC Celebrity Bern]]> Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:26:35 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/sarandon-silverman.jpg

There's no doubt the Democrats trounced the Republicans in one contest: the Day One convention celebrity lineup. Scott Baio, Antonio Sabato Jr. and Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson proved no match for the wattage of Demi Lovato, Eva Longoria, Paul Simon and Sarah Silverman.

What's less clear is whether controversy sparked by some of the entertainment-world guests did their respective parties more harm than good.

Donald Trump supporter Baio got called out during an interview with MSNBC for retweeting a vile post slurring Hillary Clinton. Former underwear model Sabato absurdly insisted in an interview with ABC that – despite all evidence to the contrary – his fellow Christian President Obama is a Muslim.

On Monday night, Democratic schisms played out, in part, through the stars. While Simon's poignant croak of "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" sought to heal, comments fired from the convention stage by Sarah Silverman and eye-daggers shot from the crowd by Susan Sarandon threatened to irritate an open wound.

While the duo couldn't overshadow the night's biggest star – First Lady Michelle Obama – the attention Silverman and Sarandon grabbed underscored not only the growing role of celebrities in high-stakes political races, but the unpredictability they bring.

The GOP learned as much in 2012, via Clint Eastwood's bizarre improvised comedy act with an empty chair.

Silverman, a Bernie Sanders fan who is now supporting Clinton, offered a far funnier (including a racy crack about getting a cream for her “Bern”) and nuanced performance. She extolled Sanders and made a case for Clinton, without slamming Trump – normally an easy target for a caustic, left-leaning comedian.

Still, her comic instincts kicked in amid booing by from Sanders diehards, prompting her to react as if she were putting hecklers in their place. "To the Bernie-or-bust people: You're being ridiculous," she said with comedian-turned-senator Al Franken at her side.

While her words likely rang true to many Democrats, they starkly highlighted a lack of the kind of unity party leaders had hoped to project on a night when even pleas on Clinton's behalf from Sanders and his fellow liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren couldn't ground the boo-birds.

Sarandon, meanwhile, gave voice to the split without uttering a syllable. The Sanders supporter, who told TYT Politics last month that Clinton “in a way” is “more dangerous” than Trump, became an Internet meme after journalist Ian McKenna tweeted a gif of her looking miserable in the Philadelphia arena.  

“Susan Sarandon is having literally the worst time at the #DemConvention,” McKenna noted. Sarandon retweeted the observation, and added: "Accurate."

Her short, if not sweet, tweet likely won't be the final word from a celebrity during a divisive president election cycle in which both parties got humbling reminders that reaching out to the stars brings a risk of feeling the burn.

<![CDATA[Dr. Dre Handcuffed After Driveway Confrontation]]> Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:54:29 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/AP_129703052779.jpg

Music producer and entrepreneur Andre "Dr. Dre" Young was briefly handcuffed after deputies responded to a report of a confrontation outside his Malibu home.

Young was accused of pointing a gun at a man Monday morning outside the home on Pacific Coast Highway, authorities said. The man told deputies the rapper pointed a gun at him and told him to leave while he was stopped in his car on PCH, according to the department.

Young told deputies the man was in front of his home, blocking his driveway, and that he asked the man to leave.

The 51-year-old artist was searched, handcuffed and briefly detained in a patrol car while deputies investigated the claims, according to the sheriff's department. Deputies said Young was cooperative with deputies and consented to a search.

Young claimed the man drove away after the initial encounter, but immediately returned and parked near the same location. Young said he pulled out his cellphone and started recording the man, who then drove away, and denied threatening the man, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The man insisted Young had a handgun, but a weapon was not found at the scene, authorities said.

Young was not arrested or taken into custody by deputies, but the other man initiated a private person's arrest of Young for misdemeanor brandishing a firearm, according to the sheriff's department. Young received a citation and was not transported to the station.

A representative for Young did not immediately return a request for comment from The Associated Press.
