The Malaysian police on Wednesday said they want to question three new North Korean suspects, including North Korean diplomat, in connection with the apparent assassination last week of Kim Jong Nam, the older half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. At a news conference in the Malaysian capital, Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar said the new suspects include Hyon Kwang Song, the second secretary in the North Korean Embassy in Kuala Lumpur. The other suspects named were Kim Uk Il, who works for the North Korean airline Air Koryo, and a North Korean man identified as Ri Ji U, but no other details were given about him. Bakar said the suspects are still in Kuala Lumpur and police will compel them to cooperate if they do not come in voluntarily. Police have also asked Pyongyang to return four other North Korean suspects who are believed to have fled Malaysia to Pyongyang.

"We have since called the North Korean Embassy to interview the two men and hope the embassy will give us their co-operation. "Our investigations also revealed that the two female suspects detained in connection with the murder of Kim Jong-Nam knew exactly what they were doing. "We believe they were told to use the piece of cloth and wipe Jong-Nam's face and later wipe their hands when they are done," he told a press conference attended by almost 100 local and foreign journalists at the federal police headquarters here.

My wife, daughter, and I went to see La La Land yesterday. (I'd give it 4.5 stars, Carla gives it 3.5, and Jane gives it 4.) The opening scene was a one-take song-and-dance number shot on a freeway on ramp and it alone is worth the price of admission. Here's an iPhone video shot by Damien Chazelle of a rehearsal of the scene. [ via ]

Thanks to this new music video from Aussie singer-songwriter Betty Who , we now know exactly what a night out at the local coin-operated laundromat looks likeand the right attire for turning the doldrums of laundry time into a proper disco fest. In the upbeat dreamscape video for Some Kinda Wonderful, the alt-pop ingenue manages to turn a dreary few hours of chores into a fantastical party, complete with an attempt to chat up a newfound crush (and get a peek at his requisite chiseled abs). While the partyand the affections of the crushmight be all in her head, Who's cheeky attitude and the song's catchy hook will latch easily onto listeners' imagination. Some Kinda Wonderful is the third single off of Who's upcoming album The Valley , out later in March. Check it out above, and just try not to start bopping along. Bonus: the next laundry day is already looking up.

Nearly 27 months ago billionaire Uday Kotak announced the takeover of ING Vysya Bank after years of eyeing it. At that time, many competitors were envious that he got the asset for a song. While the merger, which has propelled the bank to fourth rank, is nearing completion, insiders believe that it wasnt as inexpensive as people believed it to be. For a seasoned rainmaker like the 56-year-old Kotak who has supposedly set his sights on the next targetAxis Bank – there have been many surprises on the way, and lessons, too. Since November 2014, the stock market has marked down the price it is willing to pay to own the lender. The bank’s shares now trade at 3.9 times its book value after falling to nearly 3 against more than 5 times prior to the merger, though it still stands out in a crowded market. “The first learning is that you have to do our homework well.

' You cant just jump into a genre and announce I do this now.' Whats next for the Mountain Goats? Were working on a bunch of new stuff that I hope to have out sometime this year. Its super exciting, Ive been doing some keyboard stuff and working with some of the musicians. Generally speaking, the sole constant of the Mountain Goats is one, Im involved and two, I write the lyrics. But Peter [Hughes] and me have a song that people will hear before too long where I had Peter write the last verse, and its soto go as long as I have without collaborating and then say Here, you finish this one, its super good. So, really excited for people to hear that.

Hopefully by now you've seen The Lego Batman Movie and reveled in it's delightful musical finale , but what you might not know is that it's been done before by actual humans. In 2012, internet sensation StarKid (the team behind a viral musical about a certain boy wizard ) staged Holy Musical B@man! , a superhero amalgam that predates even the first Avengers movie and ends in an all-out Justice League musical number, "Super Friends." SEE ALSO: 'Lego Batman' has a lot of fun mocking 'Batman v Superman,' but there's no beef there In the musical, as with Lego Batman , Batman (Joe Walker) learns to make friends, to love and appreciate Robin (Nick Lang) and Alfred (Chris Allen). The song starts around 2:52 and dare we say it's as infectious as "Friends Are Family"? If Batman and Superman can be friends twice over, so can these fabulous tunes about super friends. Read more...

Photo by Steve Jurvetson , via Flickr Commons In 1992 Ice-T’s metal band Body Count mastered the art of shock politics when the songCop Killer” put them “ at the centre of a national outrage .” But their political ferocity may have seemed much diminished when, in 2015, they released a tongue-in-cheek update of Suicidal Tendencies’ “Institutionalized” in which Ice-T rails against his wife, bad tech support, and an interrupted ham sandwich while on the set of Law & Order . The past year’s events have jolted Body Count back into fighting form. Their recent release “No Lives Mattercombines topical social critique with “Cop Killer”-style confrontation in a pummeling track reminiscent of another 90s rap-metal activist stalwart . Ice-T may have moved on from L.A. gang life to comfortable TV stardom, but few would deny him his street cred or his continued ability to size up the situation of the American underclass.

Bonjour! Welcome to Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast , where everything is live-action but also takes you back to your childhood and nothing hurts. A new clip from the film shows Emma Watson in full Belle glory, a "peculiar" girl in a simple town where no one can help but sing about it. SEE ALSO: 'Beauty and the Beast' mashed up with 'Harry Potter' makes a bizarre love story The full song will eventually introduce Gaston (Luke Evans) and Le Fou (Josh Gad), but this teaser is true to its name and cuts off with less than a minute of Belle and the townsfolk. We establish that Belle is a weirdo who likes to read (her material of choice may elicit more than one thinkpiece) and is kind but doesn't quite fit in. Read more...
