Taylor Swift lands dream duet with Madonna, and Rihanna stuns in vibrant Versace.
The 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards saw some pretty epic moments this weekend, and some of the most hotly anticipated performances of the year. The top prize of 2015 iHeartRadio Innovator Award went to Justin Timberlake, but he wasn't the biggest winner of the night...
Apart from winning three accolades - for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Lyrics - Taylor Swift was winning in many other ways. She's been gushing to everyone who'll listen recently about Queen of Pop Madonna apparently praising her music in an interview, but the 'Blank Space' singer landed the chance to perform with her idol as she and her guitar joined the diva on stage for a rendition of Madonna's new single 'Ghosttown', taken from recently released thirteenth album 'Rebel Heart'.
Iggy Azalea, in a recent radio interview, explained why she decided to take some time off from social media.
Iggy Azalea appeared on The Cruz Show on Los Angeles' Power 106 on Friday (27th February) and explained why she has retired from social media. Azalea stressed how emotionally draining cyber bullying and negative internet attention is and how it was making her "hate people". The 24-year-old rapper further emphasised how being caught up in unpleasant Twitter "battles" was detrimental to her work and creativity.

In a recent interview, the 'American Idol' alum said a third SATC flick is in "talks" and "might be happening."
Fans of the hugely popular romantic sitcom 'Sex and the City' will be very intrigued with what singer/actress Jennifer Hudson has to say about the prospect of a third movie being made, which she hints may become a reality.
Hudson hinted at a third SATC movie in a recent radio interview
If a third film instalment of the beloved TV series would go forward, the pressure will be on to make a better flick than the second movie, which premiered in 2010. Set in Abu Dhabi instead of New York City, the film was received negatively by critics, bombed at the box office and was slammed by diehard fans, who felt it didn't stick with the TV show's original premise.
Will there be a 'Sex and the City 3'? Jennifer Hudson has hinted that another film may be in the pipeline.

The actress has said that a third ‘Sex and the City’ movie “could happen.”
Jennifer Hudson has dropped perhaps the strongest indication yet that Sex and the City might not be done on the big screen.
Jennifer Hudson had said a third Sex and the City movie "might happen."
In a interview with Dish Nation, Hudson was asked wether she thought a third movie could be happening, "I think it might be,” she answered. "Somebody just came to me talking about that. So, if it's in the talks, it might happen. So, look for it. Look for Louise from St Louis!”
This time, J-Hud has a whole new outlook on the music game.
T minus one day to the release of Jennifer Hudson’s new album and this one will be big. J-Hud collaborated on, well, JHUD with Pharrell Williams, R-Kelly and Timbaland. The soulful singer wants to reveal another, more personal side to herself with this album. In an interview with USA Today, she explained: "I noticed that's what everyone's been calling me. And I want people to get to know me personally as that, as this real girl."
J-Hud is inspired and ready to take on the music scene once again.
Most of us won’t get to hear the actual music for another day, but Hudson’s latest is described as crisp and rhythmic (which we’ve come to expect from hitmakers Pharrell and Timbaland) with the full, emotive vocals adding another dimension.

With her third studio album out in September, we look at Jennifer Hudson's meteoric rise to the mainstream.
American recording artist and actress Jennifer Hudson will release her third studio album on 22 September, entitled JHUD. With an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Grammy to her name, it’s easy to imagine that Jennifer Hudson has been an unstoppable singing and acting icon for all of her career. But everyone has to start somewhere and it was as an idol, on the singing competition show, American Idol, that Hudson burst into the public’s consciousness.

Of course, appearing on a contest such as American Idol and British versions including The X Factor doesn’t automatically provide you with a steadfast career in the music and entertainment industry, even if you are good.

The victim was in stable condition as of Sunday night.
BET Awards weekend started with a tragedy this year, when a guest at Meek Mill’s pre-awards party ended up in hospital with stab wounds. The incident took place on Saturday night, June 28, at Lure nightclub. Meek Mill was hosting a rousing pre-BET bash, when a fight broke out. The 20-something man was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital, but TMZ has obtained footage of him laying on the curb waiting for help while a friend yells at the police officers to hurry the ambulance.
Meek Mill himself was not directly involved in the brawl.
The man incurred two stab wounds in the stomach, but his condition is stable, the website also reports. The reason for the fight has not been uncovered so far. The man’s identity and that of his attacker are being withheld. The party was also attended by The Game, Lil Boosie, Mase and actress Kyla Pratt.
On the eve of the award show, BET has announced a performance by Lifetime Achievement honoree Lionel Richie.
It’s almost time for the BET awards and tonight’s show promises some memorable moments. Lionel Richie has been tapped to perform during the annual award show, as well as being this year’s Lifetime Achievement honoree. He joins this year’s lineup, which also includes stars like Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, Nicki Minaj, John Legend and Drake.
Richie is being honored for over four decades of transformational music.
Currently in the fifth decade of his career, Richie’s list of achievements is quite impressive. He has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and won five Grammy awards. His music has changed the face of soul and R&B, but Richie frequently crosses genre lines to experiment with pop, soft rock and even country.

What to expect when you're expecting the Tonys 2014.
Tony’s, Tony’s, Tonyyyy’s! Cue life affirming musical montage.It’s almost TIme for the 2014 Tony Awards! Has it been that long since last year’s? Well, yes. This year’s lineup looks mega promising, so here’s a little rundown of what to expect tonght.
A decade after his first time hosting, Hugh Jackman returns to fill some big shoes.
This year’s host is Hugh Jackman and while we’ll miss NPH, that beacon of Tony excellence, as a host (don’t worry, he’s still dropping by to perform with the cast of Hedwig and the Angry Itch), Mr. Jackson’s past appearances at the awards are no less a thing to behold. Example:
The news that Michael Jace has been arrested for the murder of his wife is shocking, but it's not the first time that Hollywood has been shaken by a celebrity crime.
The shocking news that “The Shield” actor Michael Jace killed his wife of 10 years has shocked the entertainment world. For non-celebrities the life of famous people always seems so glamorous and stress-free, so it’s a surprise when it turns out their lives can be more troubled and complicated below the surface than anyone had ever realised.

The world was just as rocked by these shocking celebrity crimes as it was by Jace’s arrest and subsequent confession.

Jennifer Hudson opens up about massive 80 pounds weight loss: "You can't let what everyone has to say overshadow what you want for you."
Exactly one week ago today Rachel Frederickson was declared the winner of Biggest Loser's fifteenth season, after shedding roughly 60% of her bodyweight.
However the dramatic weight loss from 260 pounds to 105 under the show's rigorous exercise and diet regimen, and time spent on her own before the finale, has garnered plenty of criticism.
Many viewers have wondered whether that much weight loss in a short amount of time wouldn't be harmful to the contestant's health.
Carey's performance was the perfect way to unveil the new single.
The 2014 BET Awards, honoring Aretha Franklin, Motown founder Berry Gordy, the late Nelson Mandela and others for their achievements, were taped on February 8th at the Warner Theater in Washington D.C. The award show served as a platform for Mariah Carey to perform her new song “You’re Mine” for the first time.
It was the kind of dress that only Mariah and Jessica Rabbit could possibly pull off.
Like the diva she is, Mariah appeared onstage in a low-cut black dress, perched atop a grand piano. With a few spotlights and the song’s chill vibe, the low key performance had an intimate, club vibe to it. Before the show, Carey tweeted a picture of herself in her glamorous, figure hugging outfit, adding the caption: “At Rehearsals for the #BEThonors #GLambly”.

As with any award show, there had to be at least a little drama.
Jennifer Hudson is in the news again, this time for her appearance at the People’s Choice Awards. Apparently Hudson didn’t have a very good time at the awards Tuesday night, and even threatened to leave at one point. The reason was rapper and former pal Lord Kraven, who also made an appearance. Hudson was not having it.
The guestlist just wasn't working for Hudson.
According to RadarOnline, the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom star didn’t hesitate to make an ultimatum. "Jennifer loudly threatened 'Either he leaves or I leave,' and was waving her finger in the face of a security guard," a source told the website. The conflict soon moved outside of the main auditorium, with security attempting to escort the rapper out. At one point the conflict apparently got so heated that the police the Los Angeles Police Department were forced to intervene. When they did arrive at the scene however, the cops decided that the security officers had "acted in haste" and they offered to "escort the rapper back to the awards show."
