Katy Perry And Other Famous Fans Help TLC Exceed Kickstarter Goal For Final Album


TLC Katy Perry New Kids On The Block Bette Midler

Just three days after launching their Kickstarter campaign, TLC have not only raised enough money to record their fifth and final album, they’ve exceeded their goal. The group have so far raised over $210,000 in just three days, beating their target of $150,000 in 30 days.

TLCTLC have raised more than enough to record their fifth and final album

The amazing total is thanks in part to some of the band’s famous fans including singer Katy Perry, who, according to TMZ, has donated $5,000 to the campaign. That $5,000 pledge gets Perry a slumber party with the girls where she can “put on her jammies, order some late night snacks and have some #TLCPillowTalk".

50 Cent And Bette Midler? Our Favorite Celebrity BFFs

Unlike Jennifer Lawrence and her rather normal best friend, Laura Simpson, celebs often pick other famous people to have as their BFFs. They all probably bump into each other at so many events that it’s difficult not to end up practically joined at the hip. Some of these celebrity BFFs you’ll already know about, some you’ll be totally surprised to hear have even met!  The phrase chalk and cheese comes to mind.

Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs since their Monica and Rachel days. The pair have seen each other through weddings and divorces, children and various film/TV projects. “We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great”, Cox said of Aniston, while her best friend in turn dubbed her “the most dependable and loyal”. Mutual appreciation society, or what?  We love it!  That's how all best friends should talk about each other in our opinion.

20 Feet From Stardom Review


Extraordinary

Entertaining and uplifting, this Oscar-winning documentary tells the unknown story of the back-up singers who made classic records so memorable. Packed with lively, engaging people and fantastic music, the film also offers a sharp look at the music industry over the past 60 years in parallel with the fight for civil rights in America.

In the 1950s, background singers were usually white girls who read sheet-music perfectly. But they were quickly replaced with black artists who learned their craft in churches and could improvise harmonies with the lead singers. Suddenly, pop songs were infused with passion and life, as a handful of unknown singers performed backing vocals on virtually every classic hit since then. With their powerhouse voices and larger-than-life personalities, most have also tried to find success as solo artists. Others prefer to stay in the shadows.

For example, even though established stars acknowledge that she has more talent than any of them, Lisa Fischer prefers the quiet life out of the spotlight. Other belters like Merry Clayton, Tata Vega and Claudia Lennear can be heard on hundreds of timeless classics and are known throughout the industry, but never managed to get their solo careers off the ground. Judith Hill is a young artist who does soaring backing work while waiting for her own music to take off. And Darlene Love is the exception who managed both long background and solo careers.

L'Wren Scott has been found dead in her Manhattan apartment this morning after what is believed to have been a suicide.

Oscar Producers Zadan And Meron Tease Some Of This Year's Biggest Moments


Ellen Degeneres Craig Zadan Bette Midler U2 Pharrell Williams Idina Menzel Karen O

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made a controversial hit out of the Oscars last year, but they might be on thin ice this time. Getting Seth McFarlane to host anything is a risky bet and his antics last year got a lot of people – notably the feminist crowd – pretty riled up. The controversy served its purpose. Last year’s show pulled in 40.3 million US viewers, the largest audience the show has had in three years. Zadan and Meron’s show was a hit with the key 18-49 demographic and the duo were invited back this year.

Ellen Degeneres
Ellen might be a safer choice for host, but she is far from boring.

And yet. The choice of Ellen for this year’s host suggests that the producers were at least a little bit intimidated by last year’s backlash. This year’s host, Ellen, while hilarious and ever entertaining, is a much safer option and has proven appeal with the Oscars’ key demo – women.

Bette Midler, The Toast Of Broadway For One-Woman Show 'I'll Eat You Last'


Bette Midler

Bette Midler has made her triumphant return to the floorboards of New York's most famous theatre district, having been away from the stages of Broadway for some thirty years, staring in the John Logan-penned one-woman show I'll Eat You Last. Director Joe Mantello is the man behind Midler's return, which is garnering quite the buzz across New York's most artistic circles, as Midler looks to prove that she's still got it no matter how long its been since she last performed live.

Bette Midler At The Openning Night of I'll Eat You Last

"I AM NOT GETTING UP!" Thats the first thing that bellows from Midler's mouth as she lounges across a couch, swathed in an aqua silk caftan, from the beginning of the play right until the very end. But regardless of the fact that she spends the full hour and twenty minutes worth of the show just maxing out and smoking cigarettes or joints, Bette's interpretation of superagent Sue Mengers never sways as she give an extraordinary virtuoso performance. Perhaps it is down to the similarly bleak background they share, or just a testament to Midler's wonderful acting talent, but Bette really does pull off a show stopping rendition of the first real female power in the movie agency industry.
