Rihanna

Some of today’s biggest stars invaded Sin City as the 2016 Billboard Music Awards took over the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night. Co-hosted this year by Ciara and Ludacris, the 2016 BBMAs featured performances by Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Pink, and Britney Spears. Celine Dion served as this year’s ICON Award recipient, while Madonna paid tribute to the late iconic Prince.

Before the main show kicked off, it was time for many of the night’s attendees to show off their stylish looks on the magenta carpet during arrivals. Rihanna, Ariana Grande, DJ Khaled, Ludacris, Ciara, Britney Spears and more stopped and posed for the cameras in some eye-catching outfits.

Check out the red carpet looks at the 2016 BBMAs below.

Beyoncé

The stars are out on Monday night (May 2), as the 2016 Met Gala takes over the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Hosted by Anna Wintour, this year’s event is also co-hosted by Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, and Apple’s chief design officer, Jonathan Ive. The theme for this year’s extravagant soiree is “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology,” as A-listers in entertainment and fashion posed for the cameras during red carpet arrivals.

Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, Nas, Ciara, Wiz Khalifa, Willow and Jaden Smith, Nick Jonas, Derek Jeter, and more showed off their pricey outfits, showing off their individual, and in some cases puzzling style. Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada serve as honorary chairs for the Met Gala.

Beyoncé’s “Formation” tour kicked off at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida, on Wednesday night (Apr. 27). Before Queen Bey’s thrilling show filled with theatrics, dancing, and a Prince tribute, DJ Khaled served as the party starter. The CEO/DJ/producer, who is enjoying the highest point of his career with newfound fame thanks to social media, turned his opening set into a star-studded show.

Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, Future, 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, and Trick Daddy all made guest appearances during DJ Khaled’s set. Jay Z was even spotted taking in all the action, posing for photos backstage after checking out the newest addition to his Roc Nation label.

Check out some photos and fan captured clips below.

2pac biopic

After years of to-ing and fro-ing, the long-awaited Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me is officially a wrap. The project finished shooting in Las Vegas earlier this month and is currently in the editing process before it hits theaters this fall (fingers crossed). With our first look at the hotly anticipated flick, which was directed by music video extraordinaire Benny Boom, here’s some quick footage of lead actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. reenacting ‘Pac’s infamous courthouse interview from 1994.

In other news, All Eyez On Me‘s reenactment of Tupac’s death in Las Vegas apparently drew a crowd of reporters and on-lookers who mistook the scene for a real life murder. According to TMZ, “local reporters actually rushed to the scene during filming, mistaking the blanks for real gunshots.”

All Eyez On Me is slated for release this November — shortly after the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s death.

ice-cube-coachella-2016-weekend-2-10

During the kick off weekend of Coachella 2016 last week, Ice Cube called on Snoop Dogg, Common, and N.W.A. to join him on stage. During N.W.A.’s set, once member was noticeably missing as Dr. Dre was nowhere to be found. On Saturday night (Apr. 23) during the second weekend of Coachella, Dr. Dre joined Cube and the living members of N.W.A. to perform for the first-time in over 20 years. The mogul-rapper joined his former group-mates, rocking the live crowd with the classics “Still D.R.E.” and “California Love.”

Ice Cube kept the L.A. theme strong on the main stage, as The Game and Kendrick Lamar make special appearances.

ice cube coachella

It may not have been the proper reunion we were all hoping for, but Ice Cube still made it a (somewhat) memorable night for N.W.A fans during his main stage set at Coachella on Saturday night. Fresh off the group’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Cube reunited with MC Ren and DJ Yella to perform the N.W.A classics, “Straight Outta Compton,” “Fuck Tha Police” and “Dopeman,” which also included an appearance from his son, O’Shea Jackson Jr.

Although Dr. Dre’s presence was sorely missing throughout the night, Cube was joined by another West Coast rap legend as Snoop Dogg rode out on a sparkly lowrider and assisted him with “Go to Church” and “The Next Episode.” Foe-turned-friend Common later joined the party to perform his and Cube’s recent Barbershop 3 collaboration, “Real People.”

Of course, O’Shea Jackson also treated the crowd to classics of his own like “Natural Born Killaz,” “Check Yo Self” and “It Was a Good Day.”

Check out video and photos from Cube’s performance below…

tinashe 8

Tinashe just set another lethal thirst trap with this sexy and stylish photo shoot for the famously provocative PAPER mag. The 23-year-old songstress poses in Moschino and Chanel before stripping down into lingerie for a few steamy shots in her bedroom, à la Britney Spears on the cover of Rolling Stone. It isn’t all about the eye candy, though: Tinashe also talks about her upcoming album Joyride, being a young woman in a male-dominated industry and why you won’t see her dating any fellow celebrities.

“I don’t feel pressure to look any way so much as I feel pressure to act a certain way,” Tinashe reflects. “I feel the pressure to date around. People are always shocked to know that I don’t date around with other celebrities. [But] it’s just not my style. I’m not trying to be well known because of the people I’m dating, or the people that I’m seen with. I’d rather just be known for my music or my art.” She grins. “People will say something crazy like, ‘Why don’t you just go date Justin Bieber and be way more famous?’ I’m like, ‘What?'”

Read the full story here and check out more photos from Tinashe’s shoot below.

Chris Brown

The stars gathered together at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (Apr. 3) for the third annual iHeartRadio Music Awards. Hosted by Jason Derulo, the three-hour show was highlighted with performances by Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, ZAYN, Iggy Azalea, Fetty Wap, G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha, and more. Pharrell Williams presented U2’s Bono and The Edge with the Innovator Award, while Justin Timberlake awarded Taylor Swift with Best Tour.

Before all the action inside, many of the industry’s finest showed off their style during red carpet arrivals. Taylor Swift caught the eyes of many with a shiny and sleek cat woman-like outfit, and Iggy Azalea was spotted with her engagement ring on despite recent infidelity issues with fiancée Nick Young. Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Diplo, Jhené Aiko, Calvin Harris, and more stopped to pose for photos and interviews before the main show kicked off with Justin Bieber.

Check out some photos below.

Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 10.34.01 AM

This really should have happened ages ago. Beyonce has effectively been the definition of that “gym life” since…pre-pubescence, so for her to not have a line of leggings and sports bras is pretty much a gaping hole in American capitalism. But all’s well, the queen will still make an absolute killing when her Ivy Park “athleisure” (as if we need a tag word to give women a reason wear spandex while doing errands on a Sunday) hits the market in April. The mid-priced ($30 to $200) line will be available at Beyonce’s Ivy Park site, Nordstrom’s, Topshop (Beyonce partnered w/ Topshop’s founder Sir Phillip Green on the line), and Net-a-Sporter. Finally all of the young women (and men) uploading their own versions of Bey’s “Formation” video (some, very inappropriate) will at least be able to do so in Beyonce-sanctioned stretch pants : )

Photographer extraordinaire Thuan Tran caught these candid pics of Nas while on set at SONY studios. Dressed in full Ghostbusters gear, Nasir looks pretty comfortable with the proton pack on.

Hopefully, this means the Queensbrigde star has a cameo in the upcoming film.
