Southport 50th was always going to be special. Every year Southport Weekender comes around again and with so many mind blowing gigs and sets we've seen throughout its history, it would be fair to assume Alex, Dave and the rest of the Southport Weekender family couldn't top it off again, but my gosh they did! It was an epic weekender.
The history of Southport Weekender has been inspirational to many lovers of soul and unity. That's why so many American artists, who have influenced dance music, always return back to get a slice of this unique melting pot. David Morales, Derrick Carter, Kerri Chandler, Kenny Dope, Jazzy Jeff, as well as legendary UK pioneers such as Carl Cox, David Rodigan, Trevor Nelson, Giles Peterson, Norman Jay and Mr Scruff were all in the house. Amazing live acts such as Faith Evans, Omar, Marcos Valle and Snarky Puppy added to the magic of what was a fantastic weekend.
Arriving on Friday, it was hard not to get swept away with the excitement but with the After Parties and so much to see, it was best not to burn out too soon. Brand New Heavies in The Connoisseur's Corner was a perfect way to start the weekender. They always know how to win the Southport Weekender crowd with their great display of funk musicianship immediately getting the dance floor moving. With Suncebeat and now two more events this year - one at Camelot and a special nostalgia gig back at the original Pontins in Southport - there were plenty more opportunities to experience the good vibrations of the festival. There's no doubt anyone who's been to Suncebeat knows how good that event is, and that I'm sure will be even more prolific this year due to the tragic death of Frankie Knuckles, who was going to headline Suncebeat this year.

Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Arcade Fire bring life to New Orleans Jazz Festival 2014.
It's that time of year again where New Orleans go all out to prove they are one of the most culturally rich cities in North America with their annual two-weekend event, the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
The Jazz Festival has expanded to two long weekends since its inaugural year in 1970, meaning that more people than ever can get the chance to enjoy the fine music culture of Louisiana. The Queen of Gospel Mahalia Jackson appeared at the first event alongside renowned orchestral composer Duke Ellington, and from then on the festival has gone from strength to strength and has never once lost the spirit that has made it so loved.
Lindsay Lohan received a supportive visit from Ben Affleck, whilst in rehab, who offered his support and advice. Affleck is not the only celebrity friend to offer Lohan support: singer Chaka Khan and media mogul Oprah Winfrey are also helping the actress.
Ben Affleck paid Lindsay Lohan a visit whilst she was in rehab. He advised her on how to remain sober after she leaves the facility. Affleck, who has also been in alcohol rehab, advised the 27-year-old actress on how to turn her career around.

Lohan and Affleck, according to TMZ, sat down in a meeting somewhere away from the Malibu Cliffside Rehab facility. Affleck advised Lohan on how to remain sober once she left the facility. He also promised that the entertainment community are considerably more supportive of those leaving rehab than one would expect.
Oprah Winfrey is mentoring Lindsay Lohan through her post-rehab phase. On a morning talk show Winfrey claimed Lohan is ready to fully commit to staying sober.
Oprah Winfrey has decided to mentor Lindsay Lohan through her transitional post-rehab period. The talk show host has already convinced the 27-year-old actress to cancel her trip to Europe. On Tuesday's (6 August) Good Morning America, Winfrey shared the reasoning behind her advice, she said "I just came from Europe, and Europe is the place to go when you want to feel really good and relax."

The television queen then went on to name drop the exclusive Italian island of Capri, saying "it's hard to go to Capri and not have a Bellini."
You can always rely on Cedric The Entertainer to get the red-carpet rocking ahead of an industry bash. Real name Cedric Antonio Kyles, the American actor and comedian showed up at the 2013 BET Honors last week to really liven things up! The Steve Harvey Show alum looked in his element posing for photographers and chatting with fellow guests.
It was a typical grand entrance from the funny-man, though the waiting press pack were perhaps more keen to snap Avatar star Laz Alonso, who also attended the event, and Anthony Anderson from All About The Andersons. Other high profile arrivals included R&B and soul producers Jimmy Jam and Terry lewis, BET chairman Debra Lee and Ava Coleman, Whose Line Is It Anyway? comedian Wayne Brady and WNBA player Lisa Leslie and husband MICHAEL LOCKWOOD.

The network announced the news today (Dec 20) that Berry and Khan would be amongst next years inductees into the honour list, with basketball star Lisa Leslie, music executive Clarence Avant and religious leader T.D. Jakes also being honoured. The ceremony will take place on January 12th in Washington, D.C., at the Warner Theatre. The show special airs on BET a month later on February 11th, with a host of special performances also taking place on the night.
BET Honors are awarded yearly to African Americans who have been recognised by BET as having exceeded in their fields of music, literature, entertainment, education and more. The awards presentation was devised in 2008 by the broadcasting company to coincide with Black History Month, with Alicia Keys, Tyra Banks, Magic Johnson, Tyler Perry, Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder having been honoured in the past. Next years ceremony will be presented by Gabrielle Union, with the list of performers at the event being held for the time being. At least this gives Halle something to look forward to, should she be fearing her Christmas celebrations go the same way as her Thanksgiving festivities went.
Funk singer Chaka Khan is spotted at the reception desk of a dentist's office in LA. Seemingly spotting the paparazzi through the window, she fixes her hair in a mirror before leaving the building. One photographer starts singing: 'Get ready for the paparazzi, get ready for the paparazzi, looking all sexy' as she does this.
After taking care of her granddaughter since 2011, Chaka Khan has stated that her son is now over the drug problems he had.
Chaka Khan has insisted that her son has gotten over his drug problem, and is now living a healthy life. The soul superstar behind 'I'm Every Woman' has had custody of her granddaughter Daija since December 2011, when the child was 10. This came after her son's girlfriend at the time was unable to care for the child because of a "heavy involvement in drugs".
Damien Holland - Khan's son - has supposedly also had a history of substance abuse, however Khan has revealed that he is now clean. In an interview with 'Sister 2 Sister' magazine, Khan explained: "He's great. He went through some trials. But he's good. He's come out of [his drug troubles]. He's got a good girlfriend. He's happy."
