So, I wake up this morning and start looking for all of the Billboard Music Awards red carpet looks that I missed last night. I’m looking, and I’m looking, and I’m looking for the slayage—I saw some fun stuff, but nobody was really bringing it for me. And then I stopped scrolling and I was all like, “Well, damn—who is this?!” And yeah, Céline Dion wearing Mugler. Click inside for more!
"All Around the World"
Britney Spears and her latest collaborator Iggy Azalea took to the stage during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards live in Las Vegas, NV tonight to perform their new single Pretty Girls for the first time. As you can see in the embed below, the ladies took some cues from their totally outrageously ’80s-themed music video for this live performance that is full of dance and FUN! You can tell that Britney is having a great time during this performance … and my love for this song grows every time I hear it. The performance is short but sweet but only because the song is short and sweet … a perfect pop confection to indulge in again and again. I love!! More »
"Hands up for Selena and Los Dinos!"
Last month we marked the sad occasion of the 20th anniversary of the death of Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla-Pérez and last night, she was honored with a live tribute performance at the Billboard Latin Music Awards. Jennifer Lopez, the actress who portrayed Selena on film back in 1997, teamed up with Selena‘s band and family Los Dinos for the tribute performance last night and … OMG, it was everything. Unfortunately, the only video I can find of the Selena tribute performance is fan-shot cellphone video of a TV set (which you can watch in full above) but even in such low quality, you can see just how special last night’s Selena tribute by J. Lo truly was. Watch the video above then click below to read some deets about the performance from The Hollywood Reporter. More »
"Be sure to tune in on May 17"
Just a couple of days ago, we got to see photos of our dear Britney Spears on the streets of LA filming the music video for her new single with Iggy Azalea titled Pretty Girls. Today we learn from Britney herself that she and Iggy will be performing their new song LIVE on the stage of The Billboard Music Awards. The BBMAs take place in Las Vegas, home of Britney‘s show Piece of Me, so it makes complete sense that she would choose that awards show to perform her new single live for the first time ever. Click below to watch Britney‘s announcement video and MAKE SURE you are watching The Billboard Music Awards on May 17 to see Pretty Girls performed live. More »
Everybody got some action
Well, if that Madonna/Drake tongue fight didn’t do it for ya, maybe this one will. Last night there was way too much good TV happening, and I did not make time for the MTV Movie Awards. However, I have been trying to catch up on the highlights, especially because I do like Amy Schumer, and I was curious to know how she performed as host. Apparently, she got a lot right—made fun of all of Kevin Hart’s new movies (also claimed that he played that ridiculous baby in American Sniper, nailed her Hillary Clinton/One Direction joke, and made out with Amber Rose.

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. Click the embed above to watch Madonna perform Ghosttown with Taylor Swift on guitar at the iHeart Radio Music Awards last night … then click below to read their back and forth tweet lovefest on Twitter just after their performance.

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!
It’s always fun to discover new fashion favorites, and it looks like Lily James is gonna be my new jam! The Cinderella star hit up allll of the red carpets this week and wore some really gorgeous pieces. This Balenciaga gown is one of my favorites. And Kerry Washington (who delivered this crazy amazing speech that you must watch) and Shonda Rhimes also looked gorgeous at the GLAAD Media Awards. Peep the gallery for 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!
