  Billie Lourd wrote a tribute post to her late mother Carrie Fisher six years after Carrie’s death. In a Tuesday Instagram post, the Ticket to Paradise star acknowledged the six-year anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death. Captioning a photo of herself and her late mother together, Billie wrote, “It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life.” Billie and her husband Austen Rydell welcomed their second child, Jackson, on 12 December. They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest,” the actress shared in her post. “For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Friday 17th September marked the first full day of The Isle of Wight Festival, including stellar performances from headliner Liam Gallagher, Tom Jones, Primal Scream, You Me At Six, Becky Hill, Sigma and many more across the festival’s stages.


Channeling the harmonious vibes of the 1970 festival, this year’s theme is “Peace, Love and Understanding”, with music lovers dressing in their colourful rainbow best to commemorate coming together on the island for the historic music festival and two years away from live music.


Those in costume, and those who want to witness a spectacle of colour, should head to Strawberry Fields at 2pm today, where the festival’s best dressed will be crowned. The winner will receive an exclusive backstage tour and champagne picnic.


Fresh indie talent LONA kicked things off on the main stage, followed by You Me At Six who brought mosh pits to Seaclose Park with songs from their UK Number 1 album ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ released earlier this year.


The Isle of Wight Festival regulars Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy were spotted watching Becky Hill impress the crowd with a string of her pop and house chart smashes, before James rocked the stage with their sing-along classics ‘Sit Down’ and ‘Getting Away With It (All Messed Up)’, alongside tracks from their latest album ‘All The Colours Of You’, including ‘Building Beaches’ and ‘ZERO’.


Tom Jones confirmed his legendary status as he performed a set filled with classics from the 60s all the way to 2021 with his recent album ‘Surrounded by Time’ (which earlier this year made Jones the oldest male to earn a number one UK album).


Closing The Isle of Wight main stage was Liam Gallagher, who wowed the crowd playing Oasis smashes ‘Rock N Roll Star’ and ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’ between his solo hits ‘Wall of Glass’ and ‘Shockwave’, before an outstanding encore of ‘Supersonic’, ‘Acquiesce’, ‘Roll With It’ and ‘Live Forever’. Oasis' Knebworth 1996 documentary is due to be released in cinemas on 23rd September, with the live album to accompany out 19th November.


The Big Top stage saw genre spanning sets from Primal Scream, Shed Seven, Sigma, Rats, Lucy Blue, Charlotte Jane and Apollo Junction.


Today, festival goers will enjoy sets from headliners David Guetta and Snow Patrol on the main stage alongside Sam Fender, James Arthur, All Saints and The Lightning Seeds, as well as Kaiser Chiefs, Example, Ella Henderson and Maximo Park on the Big Top.

Stormzy Fanboys Over Taylor Swift Backstage At MTV EMAs

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor. (sic)" And sure enough, he posed with the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker before adding a final picture of himself with a massive smile beaming across his face. Pleased with himself, he gushed "So happy." The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.

Kid Cudi Wants to Help Lil Nas X Destroy the 'Homophobic Cloud Over Hip-Hop'

  Kid Cudi is extending himself to Lil Nas X . For Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2021 list, published on Wednesday (Sept. 15), Cudi wrote about Lil Nas X and declared his support for the "Industry Baby" artist after the 22 year old tweeted that Black male rappers aren't interested in working with him. "When I saw the tweet about Nas’ album Montero not featuring Black male artists, and he replied that 'maybe a lot of them just don’t wanna work with me,' that made me sad," Cudi wrote. "There’s a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he’s going to break that s--- down. We have to stand with him. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support. When we do our song together, however trippy the video is, let’s get sexy with it." After seeing Lil Nas' tweet, Cudi replied, "N---a I'll work w u and frolic in rose gardens w u and singin about my pain." In a follow up tweet, Lil Nas told his follo
