If you were traveling to another planet last night, you might not know that Celine Dion won the most prestigious award of the night at the Billboard Music Awards, The Icon Award, honouring her for her amazing career that now spreads over 3 decades. With over 200 million albums sold worldwide and a permanent show in Vegas for over 10 years, Celine is still one of the most lucrative and popular singers on the planet. Being from Montreal myself, she is definitely my favorite since I’m a kid. Celine started her career at 12 years old in Montreal, and we all watch her grow to this Diva that she is now today.
At the BBMA, Celine also sang “Show Must Go On” from Freddie Mercury, another icon, a dramatic powerful rock ballad in which the singer makes reference to her belated husband. Everything was perfect about her performance. I watched it 5 times in a row. The dress, the voice, the orchestra, the acceptance speech and the emotion. You can see the performance below.
Celine also released today the first single from her upcoming french album “Encore Un Soir” written by Jean-Jacques Goldman, another beautiful and very emotional song that talks about love. You can listen to it below as well.
Good evening guys (From Barcelona…)
Pop music Superstar Prince has been found dead at his home in suburban Minneapolis. His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Associated Press that the music icon was found dead at his home Thursday in Chanhassen.
The singer, songwriter, arranger and instrumentalist was widely acclaimed as one of the most inventive musicians of his era, drawing upon influences ranging from James Brown to the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix. The Minneapolis native broke through in the late 1970s with the hits “Wanna Be Your Lover” and soared over the following decade with such albums as “1999” and “Purple Rain.”
On Friday, Prince was released from the hospital and returned to his Minnesota home after making an emergency landing in Illinois. Prince has been battling the flu for several weeks, even canceling two shows in Atlanta last week. Those shows were pushed to Thursday, and, although still not feeling well, he performed anyway for a packed Fox Theatre crowd.
After boarding his private plane to fly home, the singer’s condition worsened, and the pilot made an unscheduled stop around 1 a.m. at Quad City International Airport in Moline. After receiving treatment, Prince was back on the plane three hours later.
Prince died at his estate in Carver County, Minn., on Thursday. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office had been investigating a death at the estate.
He will be missed!
Lady Gaga made it again, like last year, she was definitely the highlight of the annual Academy Awards. The 29 years old singer sang her nominated song, Til It Happens To You, a very poignant performance. The song talks about rape and was co-written by Diane Warren and Gaga for the 2015 documentary film The Hunting Ground.
Gaga, donning all white, sat at an all-white piano and sang surrounded by a group of male and female survivors, each of whom had words or phrases written on their arms, including “It Happened to Me” and “Survivor.” The performance got her a standing ovation and everybody in the audience was in tears, including myself, watching it on tv.
Rapper and actor The Game offered up a Halloween treat for the world to see last Thursday night, posting a selfie onto his Instagram of his muscular, tattooed body and of course, his huuuuuuge peen, barely hiding under his briefs.
Yesterday night, The Game recreated a similar photo, now holding it and saying “I mean if I’m not your #ManCrushMonday, then who da fuck is???”
I can certainly say that he was my last night’s #MasturbationMonday subject before going to bed!
See the photos below!
Last week The View’s Candace Cameron Bure (formerly of Full House) and Raven-Symoné (once of The Cosby Show) sat down with former Who’s The Boss? child star Danny Pintauro, who recently opened up to Oprah Winfrey about his HIV-positive status. The interview was cringeworthy from beginning to end. Whether it was Symoné’s assertion that there are “different ways to catch AIDS” or Bure’s decision to ask Danny if he takes “responsibility for his promiscuous behavior or even Danny’s relatively new role as an HIV-positive advocate, the interview was a train wreck.
The truth is, almost every single question that Danny was asked served as an example of what not to ask a person who just revealed their HIV-positive status. And in the hope that Bure and Symoné can pinch off five minutes from watching reruns of their glory days to read this, let’s correct their horrendous line of inquiries, piece by piece.
