Larry Busacca/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Justin Timberlake just shared the first public photo of his new son, and, predictably, the baby is adorable.

Justin on Sunday uploaded a picture to Instagram of wife Jessica Biel holding little Silas Randall Timberlake, who’s wearing a Memphis Grizzlies shirt.

The singer wrote, “The Timberlakes are ready!!! GO GRIZZ! #GritNGrind #Playoffs #BabyGrizzROAR.”

The Grizzlies beat the Portland Trailblazers in the opening game of their first-round NBA playoff series on Sunday.

Justin and Jessica welcomed Silas, their first child, earlier this month.

New “Star Wars: Episode VII” Stormtrooper Uniform Is the Main Attraction at Celebration

ABC News(ANAHEIM, Calif.) — Almost as soon as Imperial Stormtroopers blasted their way onto the big screen in 1977, Star Wars fans have wanted to know where and how to get their own suit of ultra-cool white armor.

But you either had to have the serious skills needed to build your own or had to deal with an often confusing web of unauthorized armor builders with wildly varying reputations and quality.

Now a company called Anovos is bringing classic and the new Stormtrooper armor from Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens to the masses – for a price.

The “Star Wars” production company, Lucasfilm, and ABC News are owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Miley Cyrus, John Legend, John Mayer to Honor Legends at Rock Hall of Fame

StonePhotos/iStock Editorial/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) — Some of today’s biggest stars will be on hand to induct — and perform tributes to — the iconic musicians entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year at the hall’s induction ceremony Saturday in Cleveland.

Miley Cyrus, who’s often spoken about her admiration for ’80s rock icons Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, will get to usher them into the hall, though it is not clear if she’ll perform, as well.

Meanwhile, fun.’s Nate Ruess, who just kicked off his solo career, will perform in honor of another of this year’s inductees, the late Lou Reed.

John Mayer will induct one of his heroes, the late guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his band Double Trouble, and will take part in a tribute performance.

Stevie Wonder will induct Bill Withers, and John Legend will perform in honor of Withers, the soul singer best known for the hits “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lean on Me.”

Paul McCartney will induct his Beatles band mate, Ringo Starr.

Fall Out Boy will induct this year’s youngest honorees, Green Day, and is going to great lengths to do it: Earlier in the day, the band will be performing at the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day concert in Washington, D.C., along with Usher, Train and other acts. Then, the band members will hop a plane to Cleveland to take part in the Hall of Fame ceremony.

“It’s really exciting for us,” Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz told ABC News about participating in ushering Billie Joe Armstrong and the guys into the hall. “I think that, as punk rock bands, it’s cool. When one of us makes it, it’s kind of like all of us [do], it seems like. To me, I think Green Day is definitely Rock Hall of Fame-worthy.”

Green Day and its hit-packed 1994 album, “Dookie,” had a huge influence on Fall Out Boy, said Wentz, and that’s why he’s so happy that the band is being given such a prestigious honor.

“I think about [Green Day] on the iconic scale of a band like U2, and it’s a cool moment to see that happen,” Wentz said. “I think without Green Day putting out ‘Dookie,’ I don’t know if Fall Out Boy ends up in the same place that we end up. So I think that it’s really special for us, personally.”

Fall Out Boy hasn’t been announced as actually performing at Saturday’s induction ceremony, but is perfectly happy just to be there.

“I would love to [perform], but I don’t know if we do,” Wentz said. “In 2009, we used to cover ‘Basket Case’ by Green Day. You can find those videos online somewhere.

“It’d be cool,” he added. “I have no idea. I don’t know. We’re just lucky enough to be going.”

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”: Highlights From the Official Trailer

Warner Bros(NEW YORK) — After the first trailer leaked late Thursday night for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, director Zach Snyder took it upon himself to release the official 2-minute clip late Friday.

So, here it is and now we can talk about it!

#BatmanvSuperman #NotBlurry #NotPirated https://t.co/6twr1oFBvr

— ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) April 17, 2015

Here are the highlights:

1 – Society Doesn’t Know What to Make of Superman

He may have saved our planet in Man of Steel, but he’s still basically invincible. The clip opens with “Is it really surprising that the most powerful man in the world should be a figure of controversy?”

2 – The Masses Want Him to Leave Earth

After Holly Hunter’s voice says “Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” we see a statue in Superman’s honor with the writing “false God,” as you hear the crowd chant “go home!” With this said, it seems some authority has bowed down to him as seen in another scene that looks to be police letting him take over in some kind of situation.

3 – Batman is Not Nolan’s Batman

“That’s how it starts, the fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness, that turns good men, cruel,” Alfred (Jeremy Irons) says as Ben Affleck stares at his Batsuit, thinking about his current situation.

Is he jealous of Superman’s power. He’s an older Batman, has he retired and now wants back in with this alien running justice?

4 – There Will Be Blood

In an epic scene, Batman, in his iron Superman-busting special suit, looks up and asks him, “Tell me, do you bleed? … you will!”

5 – The Raspy Voice is Back

Yep, Bale did it, now Affleck will too. His Batman sounds more robotic, but raspy and altered nonetheless.

Bonus – Jesse Eisenberg has a creepy voiceover as Lex Luthor in the intro, where he shows his hatred for Superman already.

Anyway, the trailer looks pretty epic and March 2016 can’t get here any sooner.

Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Racist Experience

ABC/Randy Holmes(WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) — Supermodel Chrissy Teigen tweeted about a recent racist experience she had in West Hollywood.

“I dropped my sunglasses this AM on Santa Monica blvd and this seemingly normal looking dude screamed “f—— c—– always dropping s—,” she posted on Thursday.

Teigen, 29, who is known as much for her humorous personality as she is for her good looks, responded in kind on Twitter.

“Like that’s not even a stereotype. get your s— together. What a bad racist,” she added. “We were the only ones on the block and he screamed it from 5 feet away. Then when I acknowledged it he said ‘oh now the oriental can hear.'”

She closed with, “Anyhoo, that was my morning! If you see a guy in weho wearing a brown suit jacket and jeans, probably avoid eye contact.”

Mindy Kaling couldn’t help but say something about the encounter.

“WHAT?! That’s an insanely hilarious new racism I’ve never heard of before. Congrats, sociologically,” she wrote.

Ringo Starr Jokes ‘It’s About Time’ for His Hall of Fame Induction

Daniel Knighton/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — On Saturday at Cleveland’s Public Hall, Ringo Starr will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist, thereby becoming the last of The Beatles’ four members to be honored individually by the institution.

Starr initially was inducted into the Rock Hall as a member of the Fab Four in 1988, then saw his band mates John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison recognized for their solo careers in 1994, 1999 and 2004, respectively.

So how does the famed drummer feel about finally being acknowledged by the hallowed Hall?

“Well, it’s about time,” Starr told ABC News with a laugh. “I think it’s beautiful. I do. I really think it’s beautiful, and it’s something for me to look forward to.”

Starr revealed that it was McCartney who informed him that he was getting the honor.

“He called, and he said, ‘They want to induct you into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and I’ll induct you. And will you accept?'” Starr recalled. “So I said, ‘Sure. Sure. We can have a night out.'”

Unbeknownst to Starr, his Rock Hall induction came about thanks to a little help from his old friend.

“I’ve found out…that [McCartney] was out to dinner sitting ’round with a couple of other musicians, and no one could believe I wasn’t in it,” he said. “So they worked on it to get me in.”

McCartney himself has admitted in recent interviews that when he told Rock Hall organizers that he would do the honors and induct Starr, that helped seal the deal for the drummer. In conjunction with his induction, Starr will be honored with the Award for Musical Excellence.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s other 2015 inductees are the late Lou Reed, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the late Stevie Ray Vaughn and his band Double Trouble, Green Day, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Bill Withers and The “5” Royales. No word yet on whether Starr will be performing at the ceremony.

There was definite excitement, especially with the new Star Wars trailer hitting the same day.

The video wasn’t officially posted by Warner Brothers — so NO details here — but here’s the range of emotions fans had from seeing Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit.

One fan wrote: “The Batman V. Superman trailer looks amazing.”

Some people hadn’t had time to see it yet!

Some people were spoiled by the new Star Wars trailer.

I’m not throughly impressed with the Batman v Superman leaked trailer, then again it’s hard to compete with that Force Awakens trailer

— Mark Huston (@JediMark82) April 17, 2015

Then, others were just confused.

I still don’t really get why Batman and Superman are mad at each other. And that trailer does nothing to help my confusion. #BatmanvSuperman

— Jennifer Schaefer (@jlschaefer) April 17, 2015

Granted, I’m complaining about a teaser trailer. I’ll reserve judgement until the final product is released #BatmanvSuperman

— Kevin Finnigan (@KevinFinnigan) April 17, 2015

David Hasselhoff’s Music Video ‘True Survivor’ Is a Beautiful, Strange 1980s Journey

Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Gunfights? Kung fu? Dogs with lasers for eyeballs? Hitler? Dinosaurs?

Sure.

David Hasselhoff’s latest music video, “True Survivor,” was released Thursday and features a strange, beautiful mix of 1980s themes — from computer hackers on PCs to street riot sequences that would make Steven Seagal proud.

The video — which mimics the trailer for the upcoming movie Kung Fury — opens with The Hoff driving a police car, approaching three street thugs.

“Hey, you got a permit for those guns?” Hasselhoff asks, according to the video.

“I got your permit right here,” one of the men says, using a skateboard to flip Hasselhoff’s car into the air, naturally. A gunfight ensues and Hasselhoff erases the bad guys before landing in a split as flames erupt behind him.

“Permit denied,” he says.

Hasselhoff, spirited as ever, sings beside a DeLorean-like car, bathed in pink smoke. Synthesizers play in the background. Dinosaurs roam. Flames billow. Bad guys get kicked in the face. You almost expect KITT, Hasselhoff’s smartcar in the 1980s series Knight Rider, to emerge, but that will have to wait for another adventure, another time.
