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.
Dee Dee Davis is best known for playing the youngest trouble maker, Bryana “Baby Girl” Thomkins — alongside her onscreen siblings, Jeremy Suarez and Camille Winbush — in the hilarious family comedy, “The Bernie Mac Show.” Guess what she looks like now!
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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
