The latest offering in the Mission: Impossible franchise (Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation) comes out at the end of this month.

From the trailer, it seems like more of the same.

Impossible MIssion Forces led by Tom Cruise, working on the outside of the agency that's supposed to employ them.

Lots of action, and plenty of things blowing up.

But check out the stunt at the end of the trailer, with Tom hanging onto the outside of a plane as it takes off.

The buzz is that Tom did that stunt for real, on his own.

I hope someone got a shot of his insurance agent's face while that was going on, don't you?

Jon Stewart is one of the smartest most juvenile news presenters out there.

Check out his recent discussion on The Daily Show about the newest Democratic candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, a veteran senator from Vermont, as John compared and contrasted him against Hilary Clinton.

It got especially juvenile when he drifted off into a recap of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton earning up to $75,000 for speeches about diarrhea.

Watch this and tell me you don't laugh as hard as I did.

I will MISS Jon Stewart when his time on Comedy Central is done...

Idina Menzel visited Ellen the other day and naturally, the conversation turned to Frozen, the animated movie where she plays the part of Elsa, the snow queen.

She of course sings the movie's big song, "Let It Go!"

And she revealed to Ellen that her son really doesn't like it when she sings that song. In fact, she says he hates it.

But it's sort of her bread and butter, and she'll be singing it on her upcoming world tour.

She demonstrated how she'll sing it in Japanese, and after a couple of false starts, she did a pretty good job with it.

Check out the video.

By now, we all know that Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed a baby girl into the world over the weekend.

And we all know her name is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Signed, sealed, delivered. Godspeed and all that, what?

But here, for me, is the coolest part about the royal birth.

It was announced by an official town crier.

Dressed in old-style finery and holding a scroll, the crier stood on the hospital steps and made the official announcement.

And I don't care, but I think that's pretty darn cool!

How old school! Town crier Tony Appleton announces the birth of Duchess Kate's baby girl at St. Mary's Hospital in London.

Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea teamed up on a new song called "Pretty Girls."

It was officially released yesterday at midnight. A full two days after it was leaked on line, and had already ended up being aired.

Iggy wasn't very happy about it. Check out her tweets...
And here's the official song. Take a listen.

I'm not exactly blown away. How about you?

Scarlet Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend.

She was there partly to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, the latest offering by the folks at Marvel Comics.

In it, she plays Black Widow.

In this little trailer developed by the folks at SNL, Black Widow gets her own movie - because Marvel knows girls.

Seems like it wasn't that long ago we could have said SNL knows comedy.

Unfortunately, not this time...

15-year-old Isaac Waddington blew away the judges recently on Britain's Got Talent with his version of Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman."

But that's only part of the story.

The biggest and best part of the story is how he managed to move his parents and his younger brother to tears with his performance - while earning a standing ovation from the audience.

If you don't get goosebumps watching this video, watch it again until you do.

Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies took some major heat from the hometown fans of the Golden State Warriors during yesterday's first game in the second round of the NBA finals.

During a time-out, the Warriors Junior Jam dance team took to the floor to perform for the crowd.

Oblivious to that, Tony walked right out onto center court while the kids were dancing.

That earned him a huge chorus of boos.

Not only then, but every time he touched the ball during the rest of the game.

In case you're wondering, the Warriors won the game, 101 - 86.

Instant karma, anyone?

Not a lot of people were huge fans of the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight on Saturday night.

But even fewer were fans of the way Jamie Foxx treated the singing of the National Anthem prior to the fight.

The video was all over You Tube and Facebook yesterday, but now it's been taken down - "due to a copyright claim by CBS."

But Jamie took a trashing all over social media - especially on Twitter.

Here's one non-fan, who posted a video of herself doing the Jamie Foxx version of the National Anthem, showing she's ready should the call ever come!

Practicing the Jamie Foxx version of the National Anthem (for when that opportunity comes knocking.)

Matt LeBlanc visited The Graham Norton Show (on BBC) recently, and the conversation turned to some of the songs he'd sung while on Friends.

It's amazing how some things just stick with you - even after all these years.

Check out this snippet from the show.

Pretty funny stuff.
