Pop sensation Justin Bieber dominated the MTV EMAs with five European music awards Sunday night, including Best Male Performer, Best Look, Best Worldwide Act: North America, Biggest Fans and Best Collaboration. 

"It's been a long couple of years. I just feel it's awesome to be recognized for my music," says Bieber, who was up for seven awards. Bieber performed his single "What Do You Mean?" for the screaming fans at the Mediolanum Center in Italy's fashion capital of Milan. "Make some noise!" he exhorted the crowd as he sang. As he picked up his award for best collaboration, Bieber said "it's been a pretty good night." By the time he took the fifth award, for best look, he just said "Wow." He also won the worldwide act: North America category.

black-ish Becomes TV's Best-ish Comedy

The N Word. The debate over gun control. Clogged arteries. These topics would probably all score Big Red Xs on a Family Feud survey of “funniest sitcom topics.” Yet in its provocatively bold second season, ABC’s black-ish has tackled ’em all — and in the process, become one of the best comedies on television. This isn’t to suggest that black-ish has entered Afterschool Special territory: Not with moments like Jenifer Lewis’ eternally indignant Grandma Ruby huffing “Can you believe this n—-r?” after son Dre (Anthony Anderson) schools his parents on the way his generation has claimed the racial epithet “as a term of colloquialism and power.” In other words, it’s a tightrope walk, what creator Kenya Barris and theblack-ish team are attempting, with high-minded topics of national conversation on one side and “Am I allowed to laugh at that?” punch lines on the other. But there hasn’t been a single misstep …

Madonna entertains Xcel crowd – hangs out with Prince in Late-Night Concert at Paisley Park

After Madonna's St. Paul, Minnesota show, singer and entire touring entourage visit Prince's nearby complex

Two musical titans collided in Minnesota late Thursday night as Madonna attended an intimate Paisley Park jam session hosted by Prince. Minnesota public radio station the Current reports that Madonna and her entire touring crew – having performed at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center earlier in the night – ventured to Prince's nearby Chanhassen, Minnesota complex to watch the rocker and his backing band 3rd Eye Girl deliver a late-night gig. According to the Current, a handpicked group of roughly 30 people were notified earlier in the night that something "extra-special" might go down, and by 1:30 a.m., Madonna and her crew began disembarking tour buses. Before Prince took the stage, Madonna's dancers turned the sparsely packed Paisley Park venue into a synchronized dance party. At 2:15 a.m. local time, Prince, accompanied by Madonna, finally made his way …

EMINEM ON THE GENIUS OF TUPAC: 'He Was a Superstar in Every Aspect of the Word'

WHATEVER HE WAS RAPPING ABOUT, IT WAS URGENT:" EMINEM ON THE GENIUS OF TUPAC
Eminem on Tupac: 
The first time I ever heard Tupac was his verse on "I Get Around" with Digital Underground. I was 18 or 19 years old and I remember thinking, "Who is this?" He stood out so much. Once I heard that, I got his first album, 2Pacalypse Now. I saw the video for "Brenda's Got a Baby" and I remember thinking, "Holy shit." By the time he got to Me Against the World, it was him at his pinnacle. He's off and running. He knows what he wants, and he's figured out how he wants to be and how he wants to sound -- everything. I would probably put that up against anything as far as a classic hip-hop album goes.
He was taking things further than a lot of rappers at the time -- pushing it to the next level as far as giving feeling to his words and his music. A lot of people say, "You feel Pac," and it's absolutely true. The way he chose whic…

Don Cheadle Hits The Studio As Miles Davis

Image
"Miles Ahead" Now that the New York Film Festival has the premiere of Steven Spielberg's "Bridge Of Spies" out of the way, and the glitzy bow of Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" has wrapped up, they can focus on their next big movie to be unveiled: Don Cheadle's "Miles Ahead." For those of us who aren't in the Big Apple, the first clip from the movie will provide a little preview. Don Cheadle stars in and directs the passion project that finds him playing jazz legend Miles Davis. The story is set during the musician's silent period and follows his return to music, the hatching of a plot with a Rolling Stone writer (Ewan McGregor) to win back control of his songs, and details his relationship with his great love and muse Frances Taylor (Emayatzy Corinealdi). It's potentially great material, so let's hope Cheadle hits all the right notes. No release date yet, but Sony Pictures Classics will distribute the film.

Diana Ross Pregnant? ‘The Truth’ About Singer Expecting Baby

Image
The Internet was all aflutter last week after the Instagram page The Shade Room posted a photo of former Supremes legend Diana Ross. The 71-year-old singer was pictured at a local organic grocery market in Los Angeles Tuesday sporting a fuller shape.

Not surprisingly, some netizens started saying she looked pregnant. But Gossip Cop, a website that debunks celebrity hoaxes, set the record straight. It’s absolutely “not true” that Ross is expecting, the site noted, adding that she has gained some weight, and the unflattering photo exploits that.


If she had been pregnant, she would have broken a record. The oldest women to conceive a child is Rajo Devi Lohan of India, who became pregnant at 70, Gossip Cop reported.


Despite Ross' weight gain, she was “easily recognizable.” She had her trademark hair, oversize sunglasses and wore all black.

Ross doesn’t have to worry about raising a child, but she does have something else planned. The “Baby Love” singer will do a second gig in Las Vegas af…

Image
Laurence Fishburne has been cast as Nelson Mandela for an upcoming miniseries.

The Matrix and Hannibal actor will assume the role of the influential South African leader in BET miniseries Madiba. Mandela’s grandson Kweku Mandela will serve as executive producer and Kevin Hooks (Prison Break) will direct.



Based on two Mandela books, Conversations With Myself and Nelson Mandela by Himself, the miniseries will follow a younger Mandela's involvement in the political unrest in South Africa during the early 1960s.

The miniseries is named after Mandela's clan name, which is used by South Africans who respected and adored him.

Executive produced by Mandela's grandson Kweku Mandela, Madiba will start filming in South Africa next year.

Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years for his anti-apartheid efforts. After his release, he became the first black president of South Africa and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. He died in 2013 at the age of 95. 

His death was announced during the L…
