MTV Launches Reboot of ‘Total Request Live,’ Forgets to Play Music Videos

MTV’s flagship show of the ‘90s, Total Request Live, re-debuted yesterday (Oct. 2) after being off the air for nine years. Of course, we didn’t expect the good ol’ days of Korn owning the No. 3 spot week after week, but we were stunned when the reboot of TRL didn’t play a single music video during its return broadcast.

Not. One. Video. So what are people going to request every day? Instead of a music video countdown show, viewers were shown a variety of different segments. After a moment of silence for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, DJ Khaled sat down on a white throne and doled out “wisdom” with some “Major Key Motivation.”

Jared Leto Tapped to Play Hugh Hefner in Biopic of Playboy Founder

Jared Leto will soon be donning the iconic silk pajamas and smoking jacket of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, who died Sept. 27 at age 91, for an upcoming biopic from Brett Ratner.

“Jared is an old friend,” says Ratner, who will direct the film. “When he heard I got the rights to Hef’s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”

The project is in early development with Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment. The director-producer has been set on helming the movie since 2007, when it was initially set up at Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. Robert Downey Jr. had once been attached to play Hef.

Kanye West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ Is U.K.’s First Gold-Certified Album on Streams Alone

Kanye West has made chart history in the U.K. where his 2016 release The Life Of Pablo (Def Jam), becomes the first album in that market to be awarded gold certification based solely on streams.

Gold certification is typically awarded by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) to albums that shift more than 100,000 units (platinum is registered at 300,000). TLOP has now ticked past that benchmark on album-equivalent streams, which were included in the Official Chart from 2015.
