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

Lenny Kravitz never saw himself as a frontman

The 'Let Love Rule' hitmaker has opened up on his early career ambitions and admitted despite his time in the California Boys Choir, he didn't necessarily see a future as a featured singer.


Appearing on 'The Jess Cagle Podcast with Julia Cunningham', he said: "Even though I'd gone through the choir, I didn't really wanna do that.


"I didn't seen myself as the front person. But then when I started doing that, I started taking my music around and the different labels didn't think I fit in with what was going on.


"It was either too black or too white, whatever that meant. They said, 'Look, we'll sign you if you do what we say.' "


However, he didn't like the idea of giving away control despite some big money offers from various companies.


He added: "I was offered some very big deals but it just really comes down to my spirit wouldn't allow me to do it."


Lenny moved from Manhattan to Santa Monica with his family in 1974 when his mother Roxie Roker landed her role in 'The Jeffersons'.


Here, he discovered a whole new world of music and found himself embracing other style and influences.


He explained: "That's when I really got into electric guitar and got into rock and roll music, because my friends' parents were hippies. "We were listening to all this really great music that I wasn't so familiar with 'cause in New York, in my surroundings, it was more about jazz and soul and funk and R'n'B and gospel and blues and all that. It was a new world."


Meanwhile, Lenny opened up on his musical beginnings and how seeeing The Jacksons as a seven-year-old changed everything.


He said: "(My father) taking me to my first concert at Madison Square Garden to see the Jackson 5, which completely blew my head open and showed me where I could go, what that road looked like.


"And then later, yes, believing in me when I was in this group. He thought I had something and thought it was worth exploring, and that was pretty great."

He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around."

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.
