Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Drama, Music, HBO, Video,

As if one's love for The Wire couldn't be any greater, Funny or Die -- a comedy site founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay -- went and created this.

Sonja Sohn, Andre Royo, Larry Gillard Jr., Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, and Michael Kenneth Williams reprise their roles from the critically-acclaimed HBO series in this hilarious trailer for the imaginary musical. The trailer recreates a few of the show's most famous scenes -- with a lot more singing, dancing, and smiling.

Kanye West Rants at Fan

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Concerts / Tours, Hip-Hop & Rap,

Kanye WestKanye West launched an expletive-filled tirade against a fan during his performance in Paris at the weekend.

The "All Of The Lights" hitmaker was furious when an audience member shone a laser pen in his direction at the show in France, causing the star - who was performing as part of he and Jay-Z's Watch The Throne world tour - ordered the man to "chill the f**k out" or be thrown out of the venue.

"You see this guy right here with the green laser? Don't f**k with everybody's show. This is not a f**king game. You're going to get f**ked up and kicked out, I don't want that s**t. So chill the f**k out," he said.

Following his rant, Kanye attempted to get the show back on track: "Are y'all having a good time this evening? I said, are y'all having a good time this evening?"

The gig was shrouded in further controversy because of a Tweet sent by Jay-Z's friend Gwyneth Paltrow.

Arctic Monkeys

Metallica thinks that Arctic Monkeys is a "heavy metal band disguised as an indie band."

The "Enter Sandman" group have signed the British rockers to appear at their Orion festival in the US, and while some think they are a weird choice to play alongside a metal band, drummer Lars Ulrich can see the band's hidden heavier side: "For me, having the Arctic Monkeys on there is big. I think they're a heavy metal band disguised as an indie band. If you listen to a song like 'Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But...' there's almost a Rush element in there."

X-Men: First Class Sequel to Feature Time Travel

X-Men: First ClassThe X-Men: First Class' sequel is set to feature time travel.

The makers of the movie have registered the title Days Of Future Past - which is one of the most famous story arcs from the comic book series - with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), according to aintitcool.com. The storyline switches between the present day and a future in which mutants are an outlawed species, following the assassination of Senator Kelly by villain Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Kitty Pryde manages to warn her future self of the threat and the X-Men embark on a race against time to stop Magneto before it's too late.

Simon Kinberg, who also worked as a screenwriter on X-Men: The Last Stand will write the script while Matthew Vaughn will once again direct.

Matthew has previously spoken about his ideas for the sequel saying he would only bring in one new character: "We will only have one more new character. I won't say who he or she is! But we will only be bringing one more new character in. Because, I think, as Professor X (James McAvoy) is in a wheelchair, Magneto needs to have a nemesis he can fight with. Someone that will be his equal. I know who it is. It would be nice if I could say something, but I can't!"
