Watch: Justin Bieber Celebrates Black History Month On ‘Saturday Night Live’

No, He Wasn't All That Funny; Yes, It's Still Worth Checking Out!
Celebrating Black History With That Special Someone

Last night Justin Bieber hosted Saturday Night Live, and it was, um… okayyyy. LOL. Granted, his comedic timing could use a bit of work, but I definitely laughed a bit during his opening monologue, in which he attempted to celebrate both Black History Month and Valentine’s Day at the same damn time. It was cool, but someone should really let him know that Denzel Washington, great though he be, did not invent the peanut. LMAO. Okay, peep Justin‘s opening monologue above and click inside for more skits from last night’s episode. Honestly? They’re not crazy funny, but you’ll find a few laughs… here and there. And actually, I kinda loved the special Valentine’s Day message from Beiber. Don’t tell anyone, though.

Britney Spears Will Reportedly Perform In A Caesar’s Palace Property In Las Vegas After All

Is Britney Ready to Rule the 'Planet'?

At the start of this week we learned officially from Britney Spears‘s longtime manager Larry Rudolph that she will, indeed, perform some sort of residency in Las Vegas (confirming rumors that have been running wild for the past few weeks). At the time, Rudolph maintained that an official announcement was forthcoming. We don’t yet have that official announcement but we are hearing from Extra! that Britney will, in fact, perform at one of the Ceasars Entertainment Group properties … likely, Planet Hollywood. This isn’t yet confirmed, of course, but it sure sounds awfully right :D More »

Michelle Williams Responds To The Super Bowl Halftime Criticism

"I don't care what anybody else says."

Even before Beyoncé‘s Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show was over, rampant and widespread criticism erupted online concerning different portions of the performance. For some, Beyoncé‘s setlist of songs wasn’t impressive enough, for others her choice of outfit was unsatisfactory … and for others, the part of the show where Destiny’s Child reunited for the first time in years left much to be desired. In this instance, the critics took less issue with Beyoncé and more issue with DChild member Michelle Williams who, in all honestly, appeared to have some difficulty keeping up with her groupmates when the time came to dance. Speaking to Billboard magazine, Williams is speaking out for the first time about the criticism she has received regarding her performance at the Super Bowl this year and wants the world to know that haters won’t keep her down … even if they may have a point.

Watch: Fall Out Boy Plays A Surprise Concert In Chicago, IL

Their First Concert in 4 Years

Yesterday we learned that Fall Out Boy is BACK with a new single, a new album and a new tour. What we didn’t know at the time was that they were planning a super, secret concert in their hometown of Chicago, IL for later that night. FoB took to the stage of the Subterranean Club in Chitown last night to play for a sold out house of lucky fans. In addition to their collection of hit songs, Fall Out Boy also performed their new single My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up) LIVE for the first time! Click below to see a photo from the show, read some deets (including the setlist) and watch video of FoB back in action. More »

Rihanna Will Perform At The Grammy Awards With Bruno Mars And Sting

Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, And Others Set To Hit The Stage

Well, we’ve had the Golden Globe Awards and the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, but before we get to the Oscars, we gotta gear up for the biggest night in music! The 2013 Grammy Awards are this Sunday and I’m definitely, definitely psyched. Last night’s Super Bowl Half Time performance is all anyone’s really been able to talk about (well, that and Alicia Keys‘s beautiful rendition of the National Anthem), but I think we can expect some pretty epic things on the Grammy stage this year. We’ve just learned that Rihanna will be performing with Bruno Mars and Sting, and we’ve also got a list of equally awesome, additional performers inside!

Watch: Alicia Keys’s Rendition Of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ Made NFL Players Weep

And... Yeah... Me Too.
Super Bowl XLVII - Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers
AK Makes All The Big Boys Cry

The biggest thing that happened last night (other than, like, the actual football game… I guess) was the Super Bowl Half Time performance heard ’round the world. Earlier today we celebrated the awesomeness that was Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle (but mainly Kelly) at Super Bowl XLVII, but I just watched Alicia Keys‘s rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner… and yeah. Awkward. How good it was. I know people like to show off with this song, but I really appreciated that she sang it fairly simply, without a lot of fancy tricks, and pitches, and weave-flinging– not that I’m coming at anyone who’s done it like that… because I’m not! Anyway, I was sooo about to clown Ray Lewis  and his fellow-Raven who were totally crying at the end of this video… but then I realized that I kinda was too. Whatever. Peep the video for more!

P.S. If the video gets removed you can watch it here.

Wait, Britney Spears Might Have Just Confirmed Her Las Vegas Residency!

Britney Says '#VivaLasVegas'

Okay, I’m just gonna keep it reals. I have no idea what’s going on!!! Yesterday we heard reports that Britney Spears‘s Las Vegas deal had basically gone the way of DUNZO. Both Caesars Palace and Planet Hollywood confirmed that their schedules were booked and did not include a Britney Spears show. Some of you were pleased with the news, but I was kinda bummed for the sake of Trent… and I also suggested that this may not be the last we’d heard of Britney in Vegas. And voila! Britney (and her dog Hannah) took to Twitter to sorta, kinda hint at a Las Vegas residency… maybe??? Click inside and help me figure this out! Trent! Where you at?!?!?

The Britney Spears Vegas Show Is Not Happening After All

This, According To Caesars Palace
Britney Spears Visits The Nail Salon

So, a little while back we started hearing rumors about a possible Las Vegas stint for Britney Spears. There was allegedly a huge bidding war heating up amongst the hotel/casinos in the big city, and rumor had it that Brit-Brit was set to earn more than Celine Dion… AKA $100+ million dollars a year. That would have been insaaannneee! Alas, it doesn’t look like it’s going down this year. According to Ceasars Palace, they’re booked for the summer and there’s no Britney Spears in their line-up.
