'SNL' Parodied Press Conference for Hurricane Sandy

November 04, 2012 16:44:04 GMT


"Saturday Night Live" did not miss Hurricane Sandy in one of its sketches this weekend. A fake press conference was held by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, played by Fred Armisen, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, played Bobby Moynihan. Each of them was accompanied by their personal signer for the hearing-impaired.

Armisen did a good imitation of a whiny Bloomberg but it was new "SNL" cast member Cecily Strong who impressed with her portrayal of Bloomberg's overly-expressive interpreter, Lydia Callis. Armisen then handed over the mic to Moynihan, who introduced his fictional interpreter, Roxy, played by Nasim Pedrad. Clearly lacking the skill in sign language, Roxy animated everything that Moynihan said.

Elton John Freed From Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Over 'Nikita'

November 03, 2012 18:17:55 GMT


Elton John is freed from the accusation that he lifted off the words of his 1985 hit "Nikita" from a song by a photojournalist slash songwriter Guy Hobbs. A federal judge has dismissed the lawsuit filed by Hobbs after John argued that he would never steal lyrics from a little known songwriter and that the theme of his song is too general.

In Hobbs' claim, he wrote a song called "Natasha" 29 years ago after he got romantically involved with a Ukrainan waitress on board a Russian cruise ship. His ballad talked about the impossible love between a Western man and Ukrainian woman during the Cold War. He then sent the lyrics to several music producers but did not get published.
