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

Prior to this, Beyoncé reached Number 1 with debut LP Dangerously in Love (2003), 4 (2011) and Lemonade (2016). As a member of Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé boasts another chart-topper; with Survivor going the distance in 2001.

Maggie’s debut LP Heard It in a Past Life peaked at Number 25 in 2019. Surrender also reaches Number 5 on this week’s Official Vinyl Albums Chart.

Just outside of the Top 10, Elvis Presley’s timeless hits compilation ELV1S – 30 NUMBER 1 HITS lifts one place (12) as Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic Elvis continues ignites new interest in the star’s works.

It’s a big week for Wakefield-born band The Cribs this week, as reissues of their first three full-length releases enter the Top 40. The band, comprising brothers Gary, Ryan and Ross Jarman, match their original 2007 Number 13 peak with third studio album Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever.

Two of the indie-rock outfit’s records score new peaks on the Official Albums Chart with 2005 release The New Fellas at Number 20 and their eponymous 2001 debut The Cribs at Number 23. The group also dominate this week’s Official Vinyl Albums Chart, with Men’s Need’s, Women’s Needs, Whatever, The New Fellas and The Cribs charting at Numbers 2, 3 and 4 respectively.

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
