Miley Cyrus Crushes It at Chris Cornell Tribute Show … With ‘Say Hello 2 Heaven’

On a night filled with musical acts that brought chills, Miley Cyrus stole the show at Chris Cornell‘s tribute concert … with a rousing rendition of his famous Temple of the Dog song.

The ‘I Am the Highway’ tribute concert, organized by Cornell’s wife Vicky, went down at The Forum in L.A. Wednesday night, and featured an incredible lineup with 42 songs over 5 hours.

Check it out, though … Miley REALLY brought it on the vocals for “Say Hello 2 Heaven.”

Another standout from the evening was Chris’s teenage daughter, Toni, taking the stage with Ziggy Marley to cover his dad Bob‘s “Redemption Song” … after an intro by Brad Pitt. As far as her voice goes, it’s clear the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

Along with all the other famous bands and musicians who took the stage — like the Foo Fighters, Josh Homme, Ryan Adams, Chris Stapleton and Metallica — the show was highlighted by performances by Chris’s old bands … Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and for the first time since his death, Soundgarden.

The tribute show brought in a slew of celebs, as well … like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Courteney Cox, Adam Sandler and many more.

We broke the story … Cornell was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 after a show in Detroit. 

Super Bowl Halftime Show Lil Jon, Jermaine Dupri Involved … Says Jazze Pha

EXCLUSIVE

Two more huge names are helping out with the Super Bowl 53 halftime show — Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri — this according to mega-producer Jazze Pha

Pha is a producing legend who’s from ATL and is one of the most plugged-in people in town — and when we saw him at LAX, he told us he had just come back from halftime show rehearsals. 

The big bombshell here … Pha strongly suggests Lil Jon and J.D. are now a part of the show — but he wasn’t specific about what their roles will be. 

“I think Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri and everybody gonna make it hot,” Pha says … “They gonna make it live. Maybe I let the cat outta the bag, I don’t know!”

The issue … there are huge stars calling for African-Americans to boycott the show — including Common, who says the NFL doesn’t support black people

In fact, Common said he wishes Travis Scott would pull out from the show over the way the league has treated Colin Kaepernick.

Now, with two gigantic hip-hop legends seemingly signing on — ya gotta wonder what the reaction will be. 

Either way, Jazze says he was super impressed with what he saw at rehearsals and expects the show to blow people’s minds! 

We’ll see! 

Virgil Abloh Off-White Fashion Show Gridiron Glamour

Breaking News

The F in NFL now stands for FASHION … ’cause Wednesday morning, pro and college football team helmets were the hot accessories in Virgil Abloh‘s big runway show! 

Abloh is one of the HOTTEST names in the industry — and his Fall/Winter 2019 show at Paris Fashion Week was one of the most anticipated events! 

Of course, people are talking about the unique clothing — but the headwear is also getting some serious buzz. 

From the Kansas City Chiefs to the L.A. Chargers to the University of Texas Longhorns … model after model hit the runway looking ready for a full-speed collision!!! Some even wore dark visors! 

Clemson got some love … so did Iowa. The Colts. Even the Bengals were represented for some reason. 

So … does this mean people will start walkin’ down the street lookin’ like Andrew Luck? Probably not.

But hey, if fanny packs are back in style …. anything’s possible. 

Super Bowl LIII Maroon 5 Confirms … Trav & Big Boi in for Halftime Show

Breaking News

It’s official … Maroon 5 are headlining Super Bowl LIII, and they’ll be joined by the likes of Travis Scott and Atlanta hip-hop legend Big Boi

The band announced the news Sunday with a promo video which lists themselves, Trav and Big Boi as performers for the halftime show. The NFL confirmed on their end, saying M5 will take center stage and TS and BB will be featured as guest artists. 

We broke the story … Travis signed on to perform for Super Bowl 53 late last month, despite tons of backlash from the African-American community. 

The Big Boi announcement didn’t come as a total surprise. We knew organizers were scrambling to snag either him or Cardi B. Looks like they went with a homegrown artist for the big game that’ll be played in ATL this year.

Stoked is an understatement.

Kentucky Governor Rips Weezy Over Halftime Show … ‘Tired, Has-Been’

Breaking News

The Governor of Kentucky HATES Lil Wayne — and seemed disgusted someone would book the rapper to perform with Imagine Dragons at the college football National Championship game. 

Weezy joined the rock band during the halftime show of the Clemson vs. Alabama game and performed 2 songs — first, he did “Uproar” followed by a rap verse in the Imagine Dragons hit “Believer.”

Most people LOVED the “Believer” verse … but not Gov. Matt Bevin, who went to social media to vent about how much he hated the performance. 

“Way to ruin an entertaining @Imaginedragons half-time concert with the weird rantings of a tired, has-been like @LilTunechi,” Bevin said.

“One act still rising…The other, not so much.”

Damn, Gov! 

Some Weezy supporters have fired back at Bevin on Twitter, saying things like … 

“Well if there’s anyone who knows weird, tired rantings when they see ’em, it’s you.”

And … “Imagine me draggin’ deez nutz across yo face.”

Good times. 

The biggest critique of Wayne’s performance was his outfit — jackets on jackets on jackets … with a striped scarf, floppy hat and big Elton John sunglasses. 

So far, no response from Wayne. 

R. Kelly I Didn’t Watch that Lifetime Show

EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly did not watch a single minute of the docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” that has now put him in the eye of a ferocious storm … TMZ has learned.

Sources in day-to-day contact with R. Kelly tell TMZ, the singer is “disgusted” by the series, which makes shocking allegations against him including sex with various underage girls, physical abuse and mind control. People interviewed say he’s running a sex cult. 

The sources say R. Kelly views the series as a “vendetta” against him by producers and others who have hated him throughout his professional career.

We’re told R. Kelly’s team downloaded him on the various people who appeared on the show and he claims he doesn’t even know half of them. He claims the other half hate him for various personal and professional reasons.

R. Kelly also claims there were various people who wanted to go on camera and defend him but producers shut them out. 

The sources say R. Kelly is resolute — as one source put it, “He’s going to sue everybody who had anything to do with this.”

Britney Spears Vegas Show on Hold .. After Dad’s Near-Death Medical Emergency

Breaking News

Britney Spears is going on an indefinite work hiatus to help care for her dad while he recovers from major health issues … meaning her new Las Vegas show will be put on ice.

Britney announced her decision Friday, saying she’s going to “devote all of her time to her family and their efforts to care for her father during his recovery from a life-threatening illness.”

Her dad, Jamie Spears, became seriously ill 2 months ago after his colon spontaneously ruptured and he was rushed to a Vegas hospital. Britney says he was lucky to come out alive … but he has a very long road ahead.

I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.

A post shared by Britney Spears (@britneyspears) on

Spears adds the decision was very tough for her, but makes it clear … she will not be performing in her new “Britney: Domination” show, which she recently landed residency for at MGM’s Park Theater.

Jamie is responsible for saving Britney’s life back in 2007, when he said he feared he would wake up one morning and get a call from the coroner. He devoted his life to her and is largely responsible for her dramatic turnaround, both personally and professionally.

He became Britney’s conservator in 2008 and still serves in that role to this very day. 

Andy Cohen Goes Ballistic Over Times Square Security … During New Year’s Eve Show

Andy Cohen had a fit on the air during his CNN New Year’s Eve broadcast over Times Square security and his umbrella.

Andy came back from a commercial with Anderson Cooper and launched on the Times Square Alliance, which ordered him to lose his umbrella … or else.

It was pouring rain in Times Square and Andy was outraged, calling the order “Grade A BS.”

Cohen says, when he initially refused to get rid of the umbrella, a member of the Times Square Alliance threatened to pull CNN’s credentials for the next New Year’s Eve show. Andy relented, but was furious.

BTW … Andy also announced the surrogate who is carrying his baby is about to deliver a boy.

Congrats!

Celine Dion I’m Goo Goo for Lady Gaga … Rocks Out at Vegas Show

Celine Dion played the air guitar, sang along and clapped her hands for Lady Gaga during the “Bad Romance” singer’s second show of her Las Vegas residency.

Dion — who has had a residency of her own for years — had one of the best seats in the house Sunday night for Gaga’s Enigma show at the Park Theatre in the Park MGM Resort. Celine totally jams out to “You and I” … even encouraging the crowd to let loose too.

Lady Gaga’s residency began on Friday night, and reviews have been excellent — with many calling the show very energetic and theatrical — though nothing was more theatrical than Dion’s dance moves.

Celine’s 17-year residency at Caesars Palace is set to end in June, so lots more time to go see Gaga again.
