Celine Dion's Heart Wrenching Tribute To Her Husband, René Angélil

Broadcasted Live from the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Celine gives a speech, saying that “He protected me from Day 1 to for the rest of my life, I am pretty sure of that," and that he always surrounded each other with the best people. It's an 18 minute long clip, but if you are a big fan of Celine and René, it's worth the watch.

 

Rosie O'Donnell and James Corden Rap "Alexander Hamilton"

While discussing James Corden's recent announcement that he is hosting the Tony Awards, Rosie O'Donnell discusses some tips, including awarding the Tony to Hamilton, which is a show currently running (and according to the pair, is absolutely phenomenal).

Reminder: According To Ghostbusters II, The World Ends This Valentine's Day

In cinema-jokes, here's a friendly reminder that Aliens told Peter's guest on his psychic show that the world was ending on Valentine's Day in 2016. We will see what happens! (I mean, if you forget flowers for your wife, it might actually end that day for you.... Just kidding!)

The People v. O.J. Simpson Praised On Accuracy From Prosecutor, Slammed By Goldman Family

The phenomenal airing of The People v. O.J. Simpson on Tuesdays on FX got an accuracy praise from Prosecutor Marcia Clark, media everywhere, and more according to E!, but Ron Goldman's sister is less than pleased about how her brother was portrayed, i.e. not a hero. She told The Today Show that "What I think is unfortunately going to get lost in this is that my brother was doing a good deed. [He] walked in on what we believe was a horrific crime and he didn't run." Goldman gets less than a nod in the whole series, shown dead, and then painted to be potentially there "bringing back some glasses left at a restaurant," but evidently thinking that he was Nicole Brown Simpson's lover, spawning the crime allegedly committed by O.J. Simpson. The drama continues at 10 P.M. next week - whether it's fact or fiction - the lines are blurred. But one thing is for sure... Ryan Murphy is a storytelling genius.
