The Warped Tour — which ends this Sunday, Aug. 5, after a 23-year run — always presented fans of pop-punk, punk, emo, and hardcore with an annual showcase of the best and brightest acts in the industry. But Warped founder Kevin Lyman wasn’t content to simply hold down the fort for perennials like Pennywise, Dropkick Murphys, NOFX, and Bad Religion. Over the years, the tour was also a proving ground for fresh faces in hip-hop, including Eminem, D12, and the Black Eyed Peas (before Fergie joined), as well as veteran rockers like Joan Jett and Billy Idol. Lyman has also premiered new faces on the scene like the Pretty Reckless, who are fronted by ex- Gossip Girl actress Taylor Momsen — and, back in 2008, a virtually unknown singer named Katy Perry, who had yet to kiss a girl and like it. Yahoo Entertainment talked to Lyman about some of the most unusual acts to play the Warped Tour and what he remembers most about their inclusion on the festival. Read on, in Lyman’s own words.

San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is in full swing. That means people are rocking their best professional and homemade costumes and makeup for the epic four-day event. From Marvel superheroes to Game of Thrones, this year’s cosplayers do not disappoint. Take a look at the people who brought their A-game to the convention
Choosing the 13 unluckiest musicians, in honor of Friday the 13th, is an unlucky proposition. (How ironic.) You could make the case for hundreds of unknown folks who nearly got a recording contract or who released an album and watched their label doom its promotion. Every musician who died at the age of 27 is considered unlucky, and I tried to limit the damage from that as much as I reasonably could.
An exclusive first look at these Ant-Man and the Wasp figures, plus a pair of Black Panther statues, all of which are coming to shelves this fall.

To mark the return of Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Frozone, and pals in The Incredibles 2 one month from now, Disney and Pixar have designated today as Incredibles Day (or the social-friendly #IncrediblesDay).

On May 4, Star Wars Day, check out pics of Julia Roberts, Snoop Dogg, Pamela Anderson, and many more who are seriously into the film franchise.
The summer movie season starts earlier than usual this year. But such is the superpower of the Avengers — when they move their release date up (from May 4 to April 27), the entire idea of what constitutes summer films moves with it. Avengers: Infinity War will kick things off with a bang, but beyond just a handful of other titles ( Solo: A Star Wars Story , Ocean’s 8, Deadpool 2 , Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom , Incredibles 2 , Ant-Man and the Wasp , and Mission: Impossible – Fallout ), the season is surprisingly light on tentpoles. That’s all well and good, since it will give moviegoers more bandwidth to catch some decidedly lower-budget but just as promising fare like the Sundance breakouts Hereditary; Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot; and Sorry to Bother You , comedies like Tag , Action Point, and The Happytime Murders , and the sure-to-be-acclaimed bio-docs Won’t You Be My Neighbor? , Pope Francis , and Whitney . Read on for our countdown of the most anticipated summer movies.
Queen Bey put on a spectacular performance at the star-studded event, which was overrun with celebs and included drama (hey, Bieber!), hookups (Bella Hadid and the Weeknd, take two), and, of course, lots of Kardashians because we just can't shake any of them.
Here's how Matt Damon, Gabrielle Union, Kelly Ripa, and other stars are spending their vacation time.
Here, we track what the controversial "Dance Moms" personality has been doing — including glamifying, laundry, and catching up on celebrity gossip. (Yes, apparently she cares about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston too.)
Angelina is dating "a handsome, older-looking man who is a real estate agent," according to a new report. While it's "not serious," it certainly sounds like a departure from her past relationships, which were usually with other celebrities and always filled with drama.
Hollywood loves to cast illustrious stars as famous historical figures, even though it doesn’t always care if the former necessarily resembles the latter (see, for instance, 2015’s Steve Jobs , in which Michael Fassbender doesn’t look much like the Apple visionary ). That’s most definitely not the case with the upcoming biopic Judy , in which Renée Zellweger will step into the legendary shoes of Judy Garland — a role that, as proven by today’s first photo from the production , will benefit from the fact that Zellweger is nearly indistinguishable from the cinematic icon. Inspired by that stunning snapshot’s debut, we’ve compiled a rundown of the finest instances of actors becoming the spitting image of their real-life artist and politician characters.
The internet cracked many of Season 1's secrets in advance. Now here’s some fodder for fans already trying to figure out where the next 10 episodes are headed.
Some people mark St. Patrick's Day by raising a pint or tossing on a green ... anything, but Robert Downey Jr., Mariah Carey, and other celebs dress to impress.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner has been a mom for a hot minute, but her new daughter, Stormi Webster, is already a mini social media star. The first photo Kylie shared of her baby with Travis Scott — the tot’s tiny digits and sweet pout — quickly became the most-liked Instagram photo of all time in a matter of days. Since then, she’s slowly been sharing more bits of the babe, who didn’t cause her any morning sickness and moved around a lot in the womb, and the world can’t get enough. Here are all the images of baby Stormi so far…
