Blue sings the cutest 'Surfbort' you'll ever hear
Remember early last month when we got to see that collection of Beyoncé photos that were snapped during rehearsals for the Grammy Awards this year? Yeah, well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Video of Bey‘s Grammy Awards rehearsal has made its way online that is just TOO ADORABLE for its own good. Bey performs Drunk in Love in its entirety (with a guy standing in for Jay Z) and at the end of the video, we can hear Blue Ivy singing Surfbort!!!!! And if that wasn’t cute enough, Blue also offers up a Hi, Mommy as well. People, prepare do die from cuteness overload. More »
On Wednesday night, the one and only PRINCE took over the entirety of The Arsenio Hall Show (which you can watch in full HERE) but last night, it was back to business as usual on the late night talk show. Rick Ross was scheduled to perform on the show — which he did — but he brought along a couple of friends to perform with him … much to the surprise and glee of everyone in attendance. Kanye West and Big Sean were Rick Ross‘s special surprise guests during his performance of Sanctified last night. Click the embed above to watch this performance. I guess you never know where Kanye West will pop up these days.
You can watch the entire episode in full below
Last night Prince and his bands 3rd Eye Girl and New Power Generation staged a complete take-over of The Arsenio Hall Show, which provides us today with a lot of great video to watch. The show got started with Prince and 3rd Eye Girl performing their new song FunkNRoll and then the party just kept on going from there. Prince sat down for an interview with Arsenio, the two talking like longtime very good friends. Prince and 3rd Eye Girl performed the classic songs She’s Always in My Hair and Mutiny — you can watch individual video of each of those performances below … as well as the entire hour-long episode of The Arsenio Hall Show. If you have the time, the whole ep is worth watching. Not only are the interviews great (Prince even answered a few questions from fans in the audience) but you can also watch a live performance by Prince‘s featured vocalist Liv Warfield … AND, watch a weird bit where Prince helps a guy break-up with his girlfriend. Yeah, that part was really strange but overall, the whole episode made for really great TV. Check out all the great video provided and please enjoy. Would it be great if Prince took over TV shows more often? More »
Idina Menzel paid a visit to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to perform her Academy Award-winning song Let It Go from the Academy Award-winning animated film Frozen and as you can see in the video embedded above, she did so with a little backup from Jimmy and The Roots. Altogether, this gang of musicians performed the song while playing classroom instruments (a bit that Jimmy carried over from his days as host of Late Night) and gave the tune new life. Idina sang the Hell out of the song, as she is wont to do, while Jimmy and The Roots provided the instrumentation. Watch the performance above but you may want to turn down your volume, when Idina belts out those big notes, she really belts them out. Goooood morning!
"This is the mentor, this is the God, this is the genius of all geniuses"
Earlier this week we learned that Drake brought out on stage his ladyfriend/possible love interest Rihanna for a duet performance of their song Take Care in Paris, France. Last night, Drake brought out another BFF for a special surprise performance during his Would You Like A Tour? Tour, this time in Berlin, Germany. None other than BFF Kanye West came out for a special performance of his song Black Skinhead, much to the audience’s ecstatic glee. As you can hear in the video embedded above, Drake had a lot of really great things to say about Kanye before Yeezy launched into his performance. Check out the performance and see what you think. It’s clear to me that these two guys have a pretty ride or die friendship … which is really nice to see among men, don’t you think?
The TV Guide
Last night I braved the rain to make my way out to The Sayers Club in Hollywood to see a live performance by the London band Roman Remains. The show was extra special because Roman Remains featured my girl Hustle Roses on one of their songs. It has been some time since I’ve gotten to see Hustle Roses perform live so there was no way I was going to miss last night’s show. Before the live performance, I got to meet the members of Roman Remains which was really fun for me. I snapped some photos, have a look below. More »

Pointing the Foam Finger
Earlier this week we learned the sad if not entirely shocking news that Paula Patton has decided to separate from her husband Robin Thicke after almost 9 years of marriage. As soon as news of the couple’s split was revealed, speculation has been running rampant as to the cause of the break-up … with most fingers pointing at Robin‘s seemingly infidelitous behavior. Today we learn of a report from TMZ that points the foam finger of blame at Miley Cyrus as the trigger that caused the break-up of Paula and Robin‘s marriage. As you may recall, Miley and Robin infamously performed together at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards which raised a lot of eyebrows due to its sexual nature. Personally, I think it’s complete bullshizz to place any of the blame regarding Paula and Robin‘s personal problems on anyone other than the two of them, especially Miley Cyrus. More »
That Miraculous Dress
Earlier this month we saw photos of Mariah Carey practically spilling out of that sexy Jessica Rabbit-like plunging neckline dress at The BET Honors which was taped before it aired on the network over the weekend. Today we get to see video of Mimi‘s performance at The BET Honors of the singer and her miraculous dress in action. Mariah, perched on top of a piano, belts out her new single You’re Mine (Eternal) (tho it’s unclear if the song was pre-recorded or not — what do you think?) and manages to keep all of her body parts covered … including the parts of her body that are more heaving than others. To be honest, I have no idea how Mariah was able to keep completely covered while wearing this dress. It looks like if she merely blinked one or all parts of her would spill out of that dress … but no, everything stayed in place and completely covered. It’s a modern miracle. Click the video embedded above to watch Mimi‘s performance of You’re Mine (Eternal) at The BET Honors this month and marvel at her performance … and her dresses ability to restrain MC‘s ample assets.
Fans in attendance at Drake‘s concert at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris, France last night got a special surprise treat when Rihanna came out on stage to perform her duet Take Care with Drizzy. The pair (who have long been rumored to be romantically linked and were just spotted at a nightclub together in Paris Monday night) just so happened to both be in Paris at the same time so they thought it might be neat to perform together in order to drive the crowd wild. Check out the video above to watch Drake and Ri Ri do the damn thing together last night. Do you think these two are together together or is it more likely they’ve got a friends with benefits situation going on? Friends or more than friends?
Plus, Kanye talks Art with Seth in a reasonable manner
Kanye West took some time away from his Epic Concert Rant Tour to sit down and chat with Seth Meyers on his second night as host of Late Night on NBC. If you can believe it, Kanye showed that he can have a reasonable conversation about his art without yelling or cursing out anyone else, in a way that actually makes him come off as an intelligently creative person. Who knew? But, before we get to his interview, let’s take a look at his life musical performance from Late Night with Seth Meyers last night. Kanye busted out a career-spanning medley of his biggest hits … songs that have defined his musical evolution over the years. Click the embed above to watch Kanye perform his songs Jesus Walks, Touch The Sky, Stronger, Heartless, All Of The Lights, Mercy and Black Skinhead. Then, click below to watch his interview in full with Seth Meyers. More »
