Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars face Uptown Funk copyright fight again

Hot damn, we might need new lyrics to one of the biggest hits of the past few years, Uptown Funk. Instead of "called a police and a fireman" it's become a case of call a musicologist and a lawyer man.

For at least the second time, Uptown Funk songwriters Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have been threatened with a legal suit over alleged similarities between their worldwide smash and a 1980s song by Minneapolis band Collage.

ABC News Breakfast offers something fresh,Sunrise and Today hog spotlight

Normally, a winner is declared after a fight. But the rules are different in commercial TV. Somehow, two networks can both declare victory. Then they'll take it outside to the carpark and keep brawling.

We saw this last week, when Channel Nine claimed Today had overtaken Seven's Sunrise to become the top-rating breakfast show. What followed, essentially, was this:

ABC's Catalyst under question as internal review could see weekly format ditched

The future of Catalyst, the controversial ABC science program, is hanging in the balance amid reports the show's current format is to be axed and 11 staff made redundant.

The ABC has refused to comment on a Guardian report that Catalystwill lose its weekly slot and move to outsourced production, meaning 11 staff including its suspended reporter Maryanne Demasi could lose their jobs.

The X Factor Australia peddles catfight

How do you know a TV talent show is floundering in the ratings and out of ideas? Let's have a look for a quickly manufactured feud between its female judges.


Shailene Woodley Brings Attention To Important Cause Of Shailene Woodley

Actress Shailene Woodley was arrested on Monday for trespassing while protesting the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. News of the arrest quickly made headlines as Woodley live streamed it on Facebook. Though she was released from jail later that day, she is just happy that the incident is raising awareness for an important cause.

Banned From TV, Billy Bush Says “Screw It, I’ll Run For President”

After a  video surfaced in which TV personality Billy Bush can be heard both laughing at and egging on the lewd, de-humanizing “locker room” talk of Donald Trump, the “Today” host was quickly banned from the airwaves. Such a dark mark in his past will almost surely make it difficult for him to find his next job.

With so few employment options at his disposal, Bush has decided to run for president of the United States in 2020.

Pregnant Janet Jackson Rolls Dice By Bringing Another Jackson Into the World

Janet Jackson is expecting her first child at age 50, which is risky because Jacksons can turn out in a variety of different ways. She’s really rolling the dice by bringing another Jackson into the world. Case in point: Janet herself.

We Always Split The Check Because We’re Equals Also He Never Offered

When my boyfriend Ethan and I got together, we both agreed that we didn’t want to be the type of couple to fall into old-fashioned gender roles. I’m an independent woman, I have a job, and I don’t need a man to open doors for me. Ethan treats me as an equal. That’s why we always split the bill when we go out to eat. That, and he never offered to do it.

Trump Admits This Whole Time He Just Wanted To Be Miss USA

Throughout my campaign, people keep saying to me “Donald, you’re the smartest person we know, but you’re not a politician, so why run for president?” Sure, I want to make America great again, and I’m the only one who can do it. But now that the shackles of the Republican establishment are off, I can finally admit the truth: I just want to be Miss USA.

Some Americans Are Going To Mars, I Haven’t Been To Epcot!

President Barack Obama announced the goal for Americans to reach Mars by 2030. That’s downright unfair. You’re telling me that some Americans are planning a trip to Mars when I haven’t even been to Epcot?! What the H?

So this is the two Americas everyone’s always talking about. It really burns me up to think some Americans will probably stepping on the red chalky surface of Mars when I haven’t even seen Ellen’s Energy Adventure (a slow moving ride and film presentation hosted by daytime diva Ellen DeGeneres)?! We basically have a caste system is what you’re telling me.
