Beyoncé truly looked like a work of art on Saturday night. The “Sorry” singer, who is expecting twins with husband Jay Z, attended her mom Tina Lawson’s Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum in LA on Saturday. The mom of Blue Ivy stunned in a floral headpiece and a red silk dress that showed off her growing baby bump. Beyoncé attended the gala with Jay and Blue, but the trio skipped the red carpet. The outing also comes just one day after Bey attended pal Jessica Alba’s “Prince vs. Michael Jackson” birthday party in LA.

After years of speculation that Val Kilmer had been dealing with health issues, the actor decided to finally open up about what exactly he’s been going through during a recent Reddit AMA session. After one user asked Val about Michael Douglas publicly saying Val was battling throat cancer back in October, Val confirmed his illness for the first time. “He was probably trying to help me because the press probably asked where I was these days, and I did have a healing of cancer,” he said. “But my tongue is still swollen although healing all the time. Because I don’t sound my normal self yet people think I may still be under the weather.”
Michael, who is also a throat cancer survivor, had previously said that his The Ghost and the Darkness costar was “dealing with exactly what I had” and that “things don’t look too good for him,” adding, “My prayers are with him. That’s why you haven’t heard too much from Val lately.” While rumors of Val’s health have swirled over the past few years, he has continued to deny frequent hospital stays and “exaggerated” media reports. Either way, we’re so glad that he’s on the mend!
A symphony of symphonies, the Beethoven Ninth is where the composer “finds a solution of his intolerable yearning by making himself one with the human family,” British author J.W.N. Sullivan once wrote in study of Beethoven’s spiritual development.
On Saturday, in this season of Beethoven Ninths…
Several stars celebrated their very first Mother’s Day last year, and this year will be no different. Models like Irina Shayk and Bar Refaeli both gave birth to baby girls, and actresses Ellie Kemper, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Jena Malone all welcomed sons.

Fyre Festival was billed as “a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience on the Islands of the Exumas.” While attendees may agree that it’s certainly a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience, it’s certainly not one they’d hope to repeat. The brainchild of rapper Ja Rule and entrepreneur Billy McFarland, Fyre was supposed to be a luxury experience that would bring A-list music acts to a small island in the Bahamas. Blink-182 was set to perform for the audience, each of whom paid between $4,000 and $20,000 just for the privilege of being there (airfare not included). Within minutes of arriving on the scene, crowds realized that they’d been duped. The festival is a total mess, so much so that the organizers immediately canceled it, allegedly “due to circumstances out of our control.”
An official statement claims that “the physical infrastructure was not in place on time and we are unable to fulfill on that vision safely and enjoyably for our guests.” Fyre has been postponed to a later date, as live updates from guests continued to flood Twitter over the weekend. While no one has been hurt, attendees are drawing comparisons to Lord of the Flies and The Hunger Games. Here’s a rundown of the situation, as it’s happening.
Update: The festival’s organizers released an official apology on their website on Sunday, saying in part, “Billy McFarland and Ja Rule started a partnership over a mutual interest in technology, the ocean, and rap music. This unique combination of interests led them to the idea that, through their combined passions, they could create a new type of music festival and experience on a remote island. They simply weren’t ready for what happened next, or how big this thing would get.” They also stated that everyone that attended this year’s festival is being given full refunds and will receive VIP tickets to next year’s festival.
Ja Rule also commented on the situation via Twitter on Sunday. “Relieved to share that all guest[s] are safe, and have been sent the form to apply for a refund. Our deepest apologies… #fyrefestival.” And Bella Hadid, who helped promote the festival but wasn’t directly associated with it and didn’t attend, apologized to her fans via Twitter. “I initially trusted this would be an amazing & memorable experience for all of us . . . I feel so sorry and badly because this is something I couldn’t stand by.”
Shania Twain sounded so good Saturday night at the Stagecoach country music festival that I briefly wondered if she’d been replaced by a robot.
Her perfect pitch wasn’t the only thing that raised that possibility.

The world already knows that Britney Spears is an icon, but it never hurts to give everyone a fresh reminder once in a while. The singer attended the Radio Disney Music Awards in LA on Saturday, where her big night receiving the show’s first-ever Icon Award turned into a family affair. In addition to bringing her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden, as her dates, her younger sister, Jamie Lynn, surprised her on stage.
After the show’s hosts, Kelsea Ballerini and Sofia Carson, were joined by Hailee Steinfeld to perform a medley of Britney’s greatest hits, including “. . . Baby One More Time” and “Circus” while dressed in classic Britney outfits, Jamie Lynn came out to sing “Till the World Ends.” She then presented her sister, who starred in Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club 23 years ago, with the award. After thanking Disney and her fans, Britney gave her sons a shout-out, saying, “My two loves of my life, Jayden and Preston, my sons. You’re the reason my heart beats, and I love you so much.”
