Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Late Mother Carrie Fisher on Sixth Anniversary of her Death

  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

'The Voice': Ariana Grande Disowns 'pov' After This Singer Had The 'Audacity' to Perform it

 Auditioning on “The voice”is nerve-wracking enough for contestants, but performing an  Ariana Grande song in front of the Grammy winner is added pressure. 

"You have the audacity to sing Ariana’s song behind her," John Legend told Gymani. 

The 23-year-old Georgia native added her own soulful touch to Grande's “POV” during the second night of Blind Auditions on Tuesday. Gymani knew the risk she was taking and singing a coach's song typically doesn't go over too well. (Remember when Lauren Hall was sent home during Season 17 after singing Clarkson’s “Breakaway.”)

"Singing this song in front of Ariana Grande is huge. I have very big shoes to fill," said the mother of two. "I’m going to put that funk, that soul, that R&B on it."

Gymani did just that and instantly earned a chair turn from Grande and the rest of the coaches, earning the only four-chair turn of the night.

"That’s your song now. Take it," said Grande, who had an out-of-body experience and didn't "remember where I am or what’s happening" right now. "For the rest of my life, I’m going to be like, 'Oh, I’m covering Gymani’s song.'"

She continued: "I am honored that you sang my song and I would be so honored to have you on my team. I would do anything. Whatever. I’ll literally do anything."

But just because Gymani selected a Grande song, didn't mean Grande was a shoo-in. Gymani shockingly selected Clarkson as her coach, surprising Clarkson herself.  

"No one including me saw that happening," Clarkson said. Of course, Shelton couldn't wait to rub it in Grande's face: "What happened? She sang your song!"

Ariana Grande joins 'The Voice'as coach, replacing Nick Jonas for next season 

Earlier in the night, Legend and Grande pulled out the popcorn (literally) for an epic fight between Clarkson and Shelton.

The arch rival coaches went head-to-head for Lana Scott following her "whiney" rendition of "hole in the bottle" by Kelsea Ballerini,who filled in as a guest coach for Clarkson last season. 

But, according to Shelton, "Kelly won’t know" the song selection because she isn't familiar with country music. Clarkson objected: "I may not wear cowboy boots or a big ole buckle but I love country music."

The argument got so intense that Legend and Grande opted to leave the stage while Clarkson and Shelton battled it out. "Do you want to get a snack?" Grande asked. 

"I feel like John and I are parents on a vacation or field trip with our children," Grande said. Legend added, "These two cannot stop fighting."

Scott ultimately picked Shelton, giving the country cowboy ultimate bragging rights: "There’s nothing better than being ganged up on by all three of the coaches and still getting an artist."

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
