Taylor Swift, Pete Wentz, Rivers Cuomo, and Travis Barker appear in new Band Hero commercial

Continuing with its string of Risky Business-inspired commercials, Activision’s latest TV spot stars Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, and Blink-182’s Travis Barker. With a quartet like that, how could any marketing exec not feel accomplished at what she does?

Shot last week in Los Angeles by director Brett Ratner, the four musicians rock out to Taylor’s song, “Love Story” (seen after the jump). It’s cute how the guys are slightly dwarfed by Taylor’s model-esque height. The game is out in stores now.

I want to play Band Hero with Rivers Cuomo!

Sonos ZonePlayer S5 wireless music system, $399

is looking to market to the and crowd with their new ZonePlayer S5 wireless music system. If you’re familiar with Sonos, you know that the price of entry has always been a bit high historically. The ZonePlayer S5 brings that price down to about $400. You plug it in to a router, and you are good to go with the ability to play your entire music library, as well as music from services like Rhapsody, Napster, Last.fm, and others, by using your iPhone as the remote control.

The price rises if you don’t have an Ethernet port handy for the S5, as you would then also need to buy a ZoneBridge, which allows you to connect the ZonePlayer S5 (as well as any other ZonePlayers you have) to your network wirelessly. We definitely think this is a positive step in the right direction for Sonos. By adding an all-on-one ZonePlayer/speaker to their line-up at this much lower price point, they’ve made it enticing to check them out to see what all the fuss is about. We’d pick up a ZonePlayer S5 over a Bose Sounddock any day of the week.

NBC Ejects Glee Cast from Thanksgiving Parade

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Music, Prime Time, Specials, FOX, NBC, Gossip, Video,

It’s the opening of the Christmas season and an integral part in Miracle on 34th Street, but that doesn’t mean the huge Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade which prances through several blocks of New York City on live TV is just meant for everybody…especially those from rival networks.

You see, the good folks at Macy’s invited the cast of FOX’s to participate in the parade. Reports say that the actors have been working on costuming and choreography for the event, which has now been nixed by NBC. It seems the Peacock doesn’t want the kids from that extremely successful show stealing any more of its ratings. Since NBC has the right to air the parade, they simply told Macy’s to cancel the deal.

Lily Allen Quits Music

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Rumors,

Lily Allen in concertUPDATE: Her rep is now denying that Lily is planning to quit her music career. Read more here.

Yet another actress leaves her music career to pursue her Hollywood fantasy. This time it’s “Smile” singer Lily Allen.

The British pop star made the announcement yesterday on her blog. The news comes following the release of her second album, It’s Not Me, It’s You. Yes, you read that correctly—she’s calling it quits after her sophomore album.

Instead of music, Allen plans to bide her time with acting—she’ll be making her debut in a West End production of Neil LaBute’s play, Reasons To Be Pretty.

Allen was forced to take down her blog because “the abuse was getting too much” (so said her Twitter page), but here’s what it did read:

Just so you know, I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record (applause). I do however remain a fan of new music, so this is not some selfish crusade. The days of me making money from recording music has been and gone as far as I’m concerned, so I don’t (at this point) stand to profit from legislation. Except future purchases of previously recorded material (which won’t be much).

Ryan Seacrest Thinks Ellen Will Change Sexual Tension on Show

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Rumors,

Ellen DeGeneres will join Idol panelMan of a million jobs Ryan Seacrest says that the new American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres will change the “sexual tension” on the show.

The host is very pleased that the openly gay star is joining the judging panel—which also includes Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi—because she will bring a new dynamic to the series.

“We love Ellen, she is a superstar. She will change the sexual tension. Simon and Paula had a specific sort of tension, but this will be quite different.”

Although Ryan is excited about Ellen’s arrival, judge Randy insists she has a lot to learn from himself, Simon and Kara: “She’ll be following my lead, I’ve told her to watch the dog.”

Ellen is taking Paula Abdul‘s spot on the TV talent show, and will join the panel after the audition rounds are completed.

“This is so exciting for me. Hopefully, I will be the people’s point of view because I’m just like everyone at home, I sit their and I watch it. I’m not looking at it in a critical way from the producer’s mind. I’m looking at it as a person who is going to buy the music and is going to relate to that person,” Ellen said.
