Conan O'Brien fan art gets a special showing

Conan O'Brien fans are certainly creative.

An exhibit of Coco fan art was recently unveiled at the Time Warner Center in New York City. Called "NY COCO MoCA," this "Museum of CONAN Art" is an extension of the COCO-MoCA online gallery.

The special exhibit offers up more than 50 pieces of O'Brien fan art in a variety of media. There's everything from a rendering of a buff, superhero-type Conan to a portrait of the comedian in which he appears to be weeping.

O'Brien's talk show, "Conan," appears on TBS, which is owned by the parent company of CNN.

'Breaking Dawn' director: More romance, less thrusting

'Breaking Dawn' director: More romance, less thrusting

"Twilight Saga" fans have been waiting to witness post-wedding action between the series' protagonists, Bella and Edward  (remember the feathers furor?), but director Bill Condon had to turn the heat down a notch in the latest installment.

Condon tells MTV that in order to ensure "Breaking Dawn - Part I" kept its PG-13 rating - and Summit Entertainment has promised that it would stay PG-13 - he had to ensure Robert Pattinson didn't get too over-the-top with the hip action while in bed with co-star Kristen Stewart.

"It's almost clinical the kind of strict guidelines [the MPAA] have about anything that appears to be - how do I put it delicately? - that appears to be, let's call it thrusting," Condon said.

So instead of a lot of "thrusting," Condon focused more on the romance. "In fact," he went on, "it was so much more about romance than it was about hot-and-heavy action, so it was a very simple adjustment to make."

"Breaking Dawn - Part I" bows November 18.

Rihanna cancels concert due to flu

Rihanna's fans in Sweden unfortunately didn't get to see the pop star perform on Monday night, as she came down with what sounds like a wicked case of the flu.

RiRi - who was not hospitalized, although a tweet she sent out may have made you think otherwise - apologized to fans in a statement on Monday.

"I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo Sweden," the "We Found Love" singer said. "I was so excited to perform for you all. It would have been a great time…so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I'm really disappointed I couldn't be there."

'Dancing' gets scary for Halloween

Welcome back to the show whose episodes are generally shorter than Kim Kardashian's recent marriage, "Dancing with the Stars!"

Last night, the six remaining couples paid tribute to Halloween, with hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet promising the "scariest things you will ever see."  From the band dressed as zombies to skeletons sitting in the judges' chairs, the show was trying a tad too hard to be spooky.

David Arquette was our first celebrity up, and he was dressed like the magician that performed at a friend's fifth birthday party more than three decades ago.

'Left Behind' movies to get reboot

The world didn't come to an end earlier this year as some previously thought, but the End Times will reportedly show up at the movies.

"Left Behind," the book series about the Biblical Rapture that was adapted into films starring Kirk Cameron from "Growing Pains," is getting a theatrical reboot, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Executive producer and screenwriter Paul Lalonde worked on the first set of films, and with help from writer/producer John Patus has developed a new script. Lalonde's Cloud Ten Pictures is searching for a director to helm the project, which will have a budget in the range of $15 million.

The popular "Left Behind" series, written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, has reportedly sold more than 65 million copies.

Kim Kardashian's divorce: The aftermath

Kim Kardashian was so eager to escape following news that her blink-and-you-missed-it second marriage is over, she had to go to the other side of the world.

E! reports that the network's reality star jetted sans wedding ring to Sydney, Australia, to do promotion for the new handbag line she's launching with her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney.

Meanwhile, the New York Times is inquiring about what the network will do with its four hours of wedding footage. The Times reports that on Monday, E! execs were trying to figure out whether to keep airing repeats of Kim Kardashian's "fairy tale wedding" special, which premiered on October 9 and 10, or just pull it from their line-up altogether.
