Hear Cyndi Lauper sing new version of 'Goonies' hit on 'Bob's Burgers' -- EXCLUSIVE

Bob’s Burgers has a retro-treat on the menu for its season 2 premiere — and it includes a remake of Cyndi Lauper’s “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough,” EW has learned. Airing March 11, the episode will send up Steven Spielberg’s 1985 family adventure movie The Goonies, as the kids embark on a treasure hunt to an abandoned taffy factory, which happens to be scheduled for demolition. To enhance their homage, the producers asked Lauper to re-record her hit with special lyrics to play over the end credits. (You can see her in action in the photo above.) “My son really wanted me to do it,” Lauper notes. “He loves the show and was like, ‘C’mon, Mom, it’s hysterical. Do it.” READ FULL STORY

Golden Globes backstage: All the highlights from George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and Uggie the dog

If you want to feel like time is traveling more quickly than a Martin Scorsese acceptance speech, try sitting in the Golden Globes press room. Journalists are seated in a ballroom adjacent to the ceremony, where one winner after another steps in front of a microphone to answer questions regarding film, TV, politics, philanthropy, dogs, dresses, underwear (or lack thereof), protestors, the British royal family, cooking, babies, and Pilates. And then, before your brain is even able to come to terms with the fact that Steven Spielberg/Kate Winslet/Meryl Streep/George Clooney is standing right in front of you, he or she is whisked away. One minute later, it all repeats, becoming a sort of speed-dating session in which each person you meet is approximately 27 times more attractive than you are.

It’s a surreal blast, and by the time The Descendants had won Best Picture, I couldn’t believe that three hours had passed. Here are the highlights of what was said backstage: READ FULL STORY
