Earlier today we focused on Rihanna‘s curious decision to channel Lil’ Kim at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night and right now, we get to see Ri Ri in action on the performance stage debuting her new single Bitch Better Have My Money LIVE for the first time ever. I like the song, I liked it from the first time I heard it last week so … I’m still digging the track. I’m not sure I’m all that crazy with Rihanna‘s green overload look but she sang the Hell out of that song last night. Click above to hear BBHMM live. Do you love it or what?
*ugly cries forever* - Taylor Swift
A new BFFship was born right before our eyes on the iHeart Radio Music Awards stage last night when Madonna and Taylor Swift teamed up to perform Maddy‘s new single Ghosttown together. It was reported earlier in the week that Madonna would be performing at the awards show but I don’t think anyone guessed that she would be performing with Taylor Swift … tho, it does make sense if you think about it. Madonna has a long history of teaming up with the hot It girls of the day when she performs at awards shows (you will recall that she very famously performed with our dear Britney Spears and some other chick whose name escapes me right now at the MTV Video Music Awards back in 2003). It would appear that it is Taylor‘s time to shine by Madonna‘s side.

Her first public post-surgery appearance
Last week, Angelina Jolie bravely shared with the world her decision to have preemptive surgery to have her ovaries removed in order to reduce her cancer risk. Last night, she made her way to The Forum here in the Los Angeles area to attend the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards with her daughters Zahara Marley and Shiloh Nouvel as her dates. I guess the “story” is that yesterday’s event was Angelina‘s first public event since she underwent her surgery but for me, the real story is that she enjoyed a really fun outing with her children. Look at the ecstatic joy on her daughters’ faces when Angelina won her Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Villain for her starring role in Maleficent. It’s insane how big her daughters have gotten but it’s really, really amazing to see them looking so well … and so happy and proud of their mom. Check out the photos in this gallery, I promise that they will brighten up your day.
J-Lo, HBC, Jerry Washington and more!

Strike A Pose
1990 was a very big year for music particularly because on this day back in ’90, Madonna released her truly iconic single Vogue and changed the landscape of pop music. It’s kind of hard to believe but Vogue was originally recorded as a “throwaway” single for the 1990 soundtrack to the Dick Tracy movie but upon its release (and evermore) it became one of the greatest Madonna songs of all time. Vogue was released on March 20, 1990 and today — 25 years later — we celebrate it’s birth into the world. Click the embed above to watch the equally iconic music video for Vogue and then click below to watch Madonna‘s epic performance of Vogue at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards … because, damn, it’s Vogue‘s birthday!

She just received the Ally for Equality award
I started reading this article cracking up, because Shonda Rhimes was openly confessing to being obsessed with the FOX show Empire. I don’t know why, but the thought of the TV God sitting in front of her own TV, watching Empire, and cackling at Taraji P. Henson‘s Cookie just made me SO happy. That is amazing. And so is this quote she gave when she received the Ally for Equality award by the Human Rights Campaign. Click inside for more!

"It was fun to check off the list, but ..."
Neil Patrick Harris gave an interview to the Huffington Post this week to talk about his most recent gig as host of The Academy Awards this year. In his carefully worded response to questions about hosting the Oscars, NPH suggests that he may never host the awards show again. Citing stresses placed on his “family” and “soul”, Neil says that while it was nice to check Oscar Host off his list, he might not be up for doing it again. NPH talks about other things in this new interview (like the White & Gold / Blue & Black Dress, How I Met Your Mother, Lady Gaga on American Horror Story, a possible follow-up to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog and more) which you can read excerpts of below.

Slayage from Emma, Lupita, Rebel, and more!
This year’s Academy Awards red carpet was one of my favorites. The celebrities came out in true Hollywood glam, and Felicity Jones is still my pick for best dressed… I think. The Elle Style Awards also went down, and some of my favorites (like Jourdan Dunn and Rebel Wilson) looked really amazing. Peep the gallery for more!

"No more capes. Cape fear is over."
Late Wednesday night we saw video of Madonna‘s unfortunate fall during her performance at The BRIT Awards that night in London which was embarrassing but, ultimately, totally human. At the time, it was assumed that Madonna was uninjured in her fall because she got right back up on her feet and she continued with her performance pretty flawlessly. Last night, Maddy filmed an interview appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show (set for air next month) and she revealed that altho she wasn’t seriously injured, she did suffer whiplash from the fall. As a result, Madonna says, she has decided NOT to wear any capes for her upcoming concert tour. More »
