Brad Pitt stepped out solo Wednesday night to mingle with an impressive crowd of A-listers – but he didn't forget his fans, either.

Showing his new zombie thriller World War Z for the first time, hehosted a star-packed screening at New York City's Museum of Modern Art – then zipped to Hoboken, N.J., where he surprised moviegoers at a late-night sneak preview.

"They said we got to do a showing in the city and I said okay, but we can't do it without showing it to the people who we made the film for," he told the Jersey fans. "So we decided to do it than no other place than Jersey. We've got a monster film, it's epic, scary as hell and I guarantee it's the most intense thing you will see all summer."

Did Taylor Swift Enjoy the Grammys More Than Anyone?

Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake & More Grammy Performances Inspire Grammy Buzz

Originally posted 02/11/2013 10:50AM

The Grammys are called music's biggest night for a reason.

With performances from Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jack White, Frank Ocean, Miranda Lambert and more, the audience rocked their way through the 3.5 hour broadcast.

But no one was having more fun than Swift, 23, who was seen singing along and dancing to almost every song played throughout the night. But the singer-songwriter had plenty of reason to celebrate – earlier that day, she learned she won a Grammy for her song with The Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound," which appeared on The Hunger Games soundtrack.

Grammys 2013: Who Put on the Best Show of the Night?

Originally posted 02/11/2013 01:15AM



It's the only awards show that's as much a concert as it is a parade of stars. So, who brought the goods Sunday night at the Grammys?

There were plenty of memorable moments, both solo performances and the duets and collaborations for which the Grammys are so famous.

Justin Timberlake made his much-anticipated – and, it turned out, sepia-toned – return to the Grammys, with help from Jay-Z, singing "Suit & Tie" and "Pusher Love Girl." That came soon after Taylor Swift opened the show with a flamboyant Alice in Wonderland take on her hit "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

Sting Says Today's Music Is 'Played Out'

It's hard to find a musical artist with a career as diverse as Sting's: In his more than 30-year career, the singer-songwriter has explored the worlds of rock, jazz, world beats and classical music – not to mention acting.

The secret to his versatility? "I was fortunate growing up in the '60s because in England we only had one radio station," the singer said in a moderated Q&A following a screening of his latest acting project, Twin Spirits, a musical and theatrical love story about composer Robert Schumann.

"We had classical music, we had pop music, we had everything in between," he says of the station's rotation. "So I grew up thinking that music was this one thing. I mean, I appreciated the difference between classical music and pop music, but it's the same building blocks and it still has the same feeling to it. It's a common language."
