Watch Eminem perform ‘Venom’ from atop the Empire State Building

When you’re Eminem and you’ve done everything from winning countless awards and selling millions of albums to starring in a movie, how exactly do you top that? Apparently, the answer is to head to the top of the Empire State Building. On Monday (Oct. 15), the Detroit-based rapper was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he treated fans to a prerecorded performance of his latest single, “Venom.”

During the appearance, the real Slim Shady took his show to new heights when he headed to the iconic New York City’s skyscraper. Throughout the eight-minute clip, the musician raps the lyrics to the track as he makes his way from the ground floor of the building to the top where he is surrounded by nothing but fog, colorful flashing lights, helicopters, and the New York City skyline.

Halfway through the clip, Eminem’s microphone begins to malfunction in front of an elevator. When the elevator opens, Kimmel’s trust companion Guillermo is there.

“Hey are you going up?” the rapper asks.

“I think so…hey you need a microphone?” Guillermo responds.

Cue one of the most awkward elevator rides of all time with the rapper dropping some information about the historic building as an elevator music version of the song plays in the background.

Watch the complete video above.

“Venom” is featured in both Sony’s antihero film “Venom” and on Eminem’s recently released album, Kamikaze.

The musician’s surprise tenth studio album marks his return to the music world following the release of his lukewarmly received ninth studio album, 2017’s Revival.

Unlike Revival, Kamikaze was met with generally positive reviews from critics and fans alike. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Kamikaze earned Eminem his ninth number one album, tying Garth Brooks and the Rolling Stones for the fifth-most leaders in the chart’s history.

The only other artists to earn more number ones are The Beatles (with 19), Jay-Z (with 14), Bruce Springsteen (with 11), Barbra Streisand (with 11) and Elvis Presley (with ten).

Watch: New Doctor Who season 11 trailer shows us who’s in charge

“What do we do?”

“Why you asking her?”

“‘Cause she’s in charge, bro.”

“Says who?”

“Says us!”

If that’s not a killer way to introduce the first female Doctor to the public, then we don’t know what is.

Watch the new official trailer for season 11 of the iconic sci-fi show above.

The new season of Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Sunday, Oct. 7.

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ teaser trailer serves creeps, darkness, and a coven

If you grew up watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch, then get ready because the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is about to take you from a world of bubblegum brightness to one of dark magic and evil. On Thursday (Sept. 13), the first teaser trailer for the much-anticipated Netflix series debuted online. After months of waiting, the first teaser trailer for the series gave fans what they were hoping for; a look into the new world of everyone’s favorite teenage witch.

The 45-second clip features a haunting version of “Happy Birthday” playing in the background as the viewer is given a first look at the our protagonist, Sabrina Spellman (played by Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka), as she celebrates her 16th birthday. Watch the short snippet above.

Completely unlike the original Sabrina series from the late ’90s and early 2000s, this adaptation finds Sabrina dealing with life as a half-witch / half-mortal. But that’s not all our blonde hero has to cope with. In addition to the everyday struggles of being a teenager, Sabrina also has to deal with the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world full mortals inhabit.

The rebooted and darkened series comes from the mind of Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics. He also penned the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa also serves as executive producer alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres Oct. 26 on Netflix.

Watch Charlie Puth party and find love in ‘The Way I Am’

With a handful of days left before his massive summer tour is slated to begin, Charlie Puth has returned with the music video for his latest single. On Monday (July 9), the New York-based singer unleashed the music video for his fourth Voicenotes single, “The Way I Am.”

The three-minute music video features Puth in different areas of a house as a party goes on around him. As he sits in different rooms including the living room, bathroom, backyard, and even the roof, his eyes do not leave a girl at the party. The clip was directed by Colin Tilley whose resume includes Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna. Watch the music video for “The Way I Am” above.

“The Way I Am” is the first track on Puth’s recently released record, Voicenotes. The record was released in May and reached the number four spot on the Billboard 200 chart and the number two spot on Billboard‘s Top Albums chart. The album, which has only been out a couple of months, was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America only four days after its release.

In support of Voicenotes, Puth is set to hit the road this summer for the 17th annual Honda Civic Tour. Previously dubbed the Voicenotes tour, the excursion will find the singer, and supporting act  Hailee Steinfeld, traveling and performing for fans across the continent. The tour will kick off this Friday, July 13, at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston and conclude on Sept. 1 at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Between his Honda Civic Tour engagements, Puth will perform the latest single live on a pair of high-profile national television shows. On Tuesday, July 17, the singer will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon while on Friday, July 20, he will perform live from Rockefeller Plaza in New York as part of this summer’s Citi Concert Series on TODAY.

Watch Panic! at the Disco bring their ‘Say Amen’ music video to life on ‘Ellen’

If Brendon Urie ever wants to play the role of a secret agent/super-spy in the near future, he may already have an audition tape on hand. On Tuesday (May 8), Panic! at the Disco headed over to the Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform their current single, “Say Amen (Saturday Night).” Instead of going the typical route with just a plain performance, the group decided to take thing up another notch.

Taking inspiration from the official music video for the tune, the live performance follows Urie as he makes his way from the green room to the main studio, all while being attacked by ninjas dressed like normal production crew members and/or audience members.

Oh yeah, did we also mention that Urie is singing live while he’s being attacked by the undercover ninjas, bottles, and vases? Watch the complete performance for “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” above.

“Say Amen (Saturday Night)” will join previously released track “(F*** A) Silver Lining” on Panic! at the Disco’s forthcoming sixth studio album. Pray for the Wicked is due out on June 22 through the band’s longtime home of Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders for Pray for the Wicked are available here.

In support of Pray for the Wicked‘s release, the Las Vegas-founded band will embark on their massive Pray for the Wicked summer tour in July. The tour will kick off July 11 at the Target Center in Minneapolis and conclude a little over a month later on Aug. 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Watch Paramore bring Roseville to life on ‘Colbert’

Listen up residents of Roseville! Paramore may be getting ready to hit the road once again next month, but in the meantime, they’re getting in on some television appearances. On Tuesday (May 1), the Tennessee-founded band headed over to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to perform their current single, “Rose-Colored Boy.”

Much like the official music video for the tune, the clip begins with a real production assistant doing a live countdown on camera, though this is usually done behind the camera. As the music begins to play around her, frontwoman Hayley Williams looks a little freaked out as if this was all unexpected. As the song continues and the camera pan to the band on the stage, the set up looks like it came straight from the studio where the music video for “Rose-Colored Boy” was filmed with all the polyester clothing, bright, but grungy colors, and the old-school televisions sprawled on some dirty carpet. Watch the live performance above.

“Rose-Colored Boy” is featured on Paramore’s recently released record, After Laughter. Since the album’s release last year, the band has been touring behind it nonstop. This summer, they will hit the touring circuit for Tour 5 alongside Foster the People. The upcoming trek will kick off on June 12 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, Fla. and conclude a month and a half later on July 24 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo. The complete tour schedule for Tour 5 can be found here.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to compose score for Showtime docu-series

Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross can now add “scoring documentaries” to their lengthy resume. On Monday (April 30), it was announced that the duo will compose the score for Showtime’s upcoming four-part documentary series, The Fourth Estate. The docu-series chronicles the inner workings of The New York Times during President Donald Trump’s first year in office. The series will premiere on Showtime on May 27 at 7:30 p.m. EST. The trailer for the upcoming documentary can be seen above.

The Fourth Estate will join Reznor and Ross’ lengthy list of scored films including The Social Network – which earned them the Oscar for Best Original Score – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Patriots Day, and The Vietnam War among others.

As for Nine Inch Nails, which Ross recently joined, the group has a busy schedule ahead of them. The band will reportedly release the final installation of their current trilogy sometime this year, though the name and its official release date have not been given. Nine Inch Nails released the first part, Not the Actual Events, in late 2016 and the second part, Add Violence, in the summer of 2017.

In addition to that, the Ohio-founded act have a lengthy music festival tour slated for the summer months. Nine Inch Nail’s music festival world tour will include performances at London’s Meltdown Festival, Prague’s Aerodrome Festival, Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival, and Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival.
