Everyone loves hearing the latest news about their favorite (or most hated) celeb, but entertainment is more than just celebrity gossip. On this top 25 entertainment sites list you will find the best online ways to stay up to date with the ever changing entertainment world.
What would life be like without entertainment? Could you manage without watching TV after a long day at the office? Without clearing your mind reading a good magazine, meeting your friends to see the Monday night Football match together, going to the movies for a double header once in a while, or even reading your favorite celebrity gossip and fails on the internet? We all need our daily dose of entertainment so that our life will not be so boring! We need a celeb to idolize, an athlete to admire, and basically everything that is extraordinary to make our life more interesting. The internet is full of entertainment sites and the million dollar question is: Where do I go for the best online entertainment?
Here at All My Faves we realize that entertainment is a broad concept that embodies tons of different things that entertains us. We built our Entertainment Homepage, striving to provide you with the best entertainment sites in each aspect: Whether your into entertainment news, celebrity gossip, watching movies or TV shows online, sports, online flash games, magazines, music, humor, or anything else that the internet has to offer for your entertainment, on the All My Faves Entertainment Homepage you will find the best sites to answer your needs.
Eonline is the most popular entertainment news source, providing us with information about almost everything that deals with the entertainment world.

Eonline delivers breaking entertainment news and in-depth coverage on television, movies, music, celebrities, fashion, beauty and lifestyle – everything pop culture. The company is known for its live-event coverage around major news events, movie premieres, and awards shows.
The reason we chose Variety is the fact that it actually deals (mainly) with the entertainment news and not with the gossip that surrounds it. Since 1905, the most influential leaders in the industry have turned to Variety for timely, credible and straightforward news and analysis — information vital to their professions. Recognized and respected throughout the world of show business, Variety is the premier source of entertainment news.
The term “Thirty Mile Zone” originated in the 1960s, when due to the growth of location shoots, studios established a “thirty mile zone” to monitor rules for filming in Hollywood. Launched in 2005, TMZ’s meteoric rise followed its exclusive on two of the biggest stories in entertainment: Mel Gibson’s DUI arrest and subsequent encounter with law enforcement, and Michael Richards’ ill-fated trip to the Laugh Factory. TMZ also broke the news of the breakup of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s marriage. TMZ altered the entertainment news landscape by changing the way the public gets its news –Instant, with lots of juicy headlines, and full of gossip.
Cubano and Miami native Perez Hilton is the internet’s most notorious gossip columnist. Since launching in 2004, PerezHilton.com — originally named PageSixSixSix.com– has become one of the leading go-to sites for celebrity news. We chose this site because when we consume our daily dose of celebrity gossip, we want it to be as yellow as it can get!
IMDb (Internet Movie Database) is the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content. IMDb is the #1 movie website in the world with a combined web and mobile audience of more than 160 million unique monthly visitors. It offers a searchable database of more than 130 million data items including more than 2 million movies, TV and entertainment programs and more than 4 million cast and crew members. With all that said you can easily understand why we think it is probably the best entertainment source when it comes to TV shows and the movies.
Rotten Tomatoes is a website devoted to reviews, information, and news of films, widely known as a film review aggregator. Its name derives from the cliché of audiences throwing rotten tomatoes or vegetables at a poor stage performance. We chose this site as our staff pick because it allows you to get access to reviews from a variety of critics and get a thorough view about the movie your about to watch.
Netflix is the world’s leading Internet television network with more than 36 million members in 40 countries enjoying more than one billion hours of TV shows and movies per month, including original series.

Hulu Plus offers unlimited instant streaming of current hit shows, classic series and acclaimed movies. You can watch any current season episode of top shows on instant streaming. Like Netflix, you will pay a low monthly fee for their unlimited service. We chose Hulu Plus because we loved the service and the content it provides, they offer a free week trial so check it out and see for yourselves.

The Rolling Stone magazine is one of the most esteemed establishment in the music world.

The site is a great source for sports news but it is always spiced with athletes/celebs gossip and fails.
