Halsey took a moment on Twitter to talk about her performance, and to also call out her online detractors. “Very proud of the emotional performance i did with @JadeChynoweth on @NBCTheVoice tonight,” she wrote on Twitter. “And also very proud to have pissed off the homophobic viewers at home who missed the message. Thanks for watching.”

First things first, Halsey tweeted about how proud she was of what she achieved with the performance. After it aired, she wrote: “Very proud of the emotional performance i did with @JadeChynoweth on @NBCTheVoice tonight. And also very proud to have pissed off thw homophobic viewers at home who missed the message. Thanks for watching.”

She then added: “Represention matters. Thanks @NBCTheVoice for giving a space for this vision to come to life. And thank you @JadeChynoweth for being an incredible human who used her body like the ultimate instrument for this collaboration.” We are so lucky to have a bisexual star like Halsey in pop right now.

If we can all take part in a quick throwback to the olden days for a moment: It’s 2004. Low-rise jeans are in. Ashlee Simpson is in a red and black plaid cropped sweater. It’s Saturday night. Jude Law (as handsome as ever) introduces Simpson for her second song on Saturday Night Live … but the wrong track begins to play! For those of you who don’t remember this cringe-worthy moment, Simpson’s song “Pieces of Me” began to play—including her pre-recorded vocals—while she looked around confused, expecting to lip sync to a completely different song. Oops!

We’re so proud of Halsey for using her performance to express the many ways that love exists in this world—and for sticking up for herself and that love amid backlash. We have no doubt this will make an impact, especially to LGBTQ+ viewers who might be struggling on their journeys right now.

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea entertains crowd with handstands

The group had just come out to the stage and was in the middle of their second song when all of the sudden the power cut out. Everyone’s microphone went out one by one. The only one left with a hot mic was Flea.

Key points:

  • The Red Hot Chili Peppers started their first Australian tour in 12 years in Hobart
  • A power disruption cut out the microphones during their second song
  • The band resumed the show after a 20-minute delay

The Californian group Red Hot Chili Peppers had opened the sold-out show with their 2002 hit Can’t Stop.

They were halfway through their second song when the power was cut to their sound system.

A concertgoer told the ABC the band’s microphones cut out one by one, until bass player Flea was the last member standing.

“I’d hate to be the person responsible for the power cutting out on the RHCP,” one fan tweeted of the technical mishap. Another said: “Having some significant tech issues in Hobart. But Flea is still a god.”

Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers stole the Grammys stage with an explosive collaborative performance we can’t forget.

Malone started his set with an emotional acoustic performance of “Stay” complete with moody fog and a skull-adorned jacket. He showed off his amazing vocal chops and only made us love him more.

He then lightened the mood with a rendition of “Rockstar” before transitioning into his collab with the Chili Peppers. Malone played guitar with the band for “Dark Necessities” and sang backing vocals.

Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis even took his shirt off during the set, which was somewhat confusing but we don’t hate it.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers proved themselves capable of keeping the show going no matter what. After a power outage interrupted their set after the first song, RHCP’s Fleatook it upon himself to keep the crowd entertained.

Mariah Carey Thought The Chainsmokers Were One Direction

“I remember seeing her and I was like, ‘Oh my god, like ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Honey,’” recalled Alex Pall. “And she was like, ‘Dude, I love you guys.”

“I remember seeing her and I was like ‘Oh, my God. “Fantasy” and “Honey,”‘ and she was like, ‘Dude, I love you guys,'” Alex told the hosts. “And we’re like, ‘Wow, you know who we are?’ and she was like, ‘One Direction, right?'” Cue the hysterical laughter from everyone in the room, including Alex and Andrew themselves. There’s no doubt that experiencing something like that was a tad embarrassing for all parties involved, but Mariah being the queen that she is responded to a clip of the interview on Wednesday to poke a little fun at herself and the group. “@TheChainsmokers of course I know you!! I love your song ‘That’s What Makes You Beautiful,” she tweeted, jokingly alluding to One Direction’s 2012 song.

It looks like Carey realized her mistake as she tweeted a video of the interview. The “Hero” singer showed that she has an incredible sense of humor by joking that she loves The Chainsmokers’ song, “What Makes You Beautiful.” As you probably know, the track was one of One Direction’s hits.

Carey caught wind of the clip and responded on Twitter on Wednesday night, poking fun at herself with a tweet that read, “@TheChainsmokers of course I know you!! I love your song ‘That’s What Makes You Beautiful,’” referring to the 2011 One Direction single.

“I’m very forgetful,” Carey said of meeting Lopez. “Apparently I’m forgetful because I don’t remember the fact that it was just like, ‘Hi, I’m so-and-so’ and then move on.”

“I was like ‘Oh my God. ‘Fantasy!’ ‘Honey!’ And she was like ‘Dude, I love you guys!’,” said Alex Pall, who explained that he was shocked that a mega-star like Carey knew about The Chainsmokers.

Chris Brown is suing the woman who alleged that he raped her in a Paris hotel room. According to TMZ, Brown plans to sue the unnamed accuser for defamation.

The gossip website quotes Brown’s Parisian lawyer Raphael Chiche, who said that they plan to file a complaint ASAP.

“Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him,” Chiche said. “A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris.”

Brown’s accuser detailed the alleged incident in an interview with French outlet Closer.

“It’s still too difficult for me to explain in detail what he did, but it was brutal and violent,” she said. “I was very afraid. Once it was over, he opened the door. I told him that I wanted to pick up my cell phone and go home.”

The woman said that she came forward so that further women would not be victimized.

“I did not want them to be able to do the same thing to other girls,” she said. “Chris Brown is the kind of person who thinks himself powerful and thinks himself above the law, but no. I’ll go to the end. Abused three times in the same evening by three different men it’s unbearable to live.”

According to the magazine, Brown’s accuser told police that she was raped at his suite in the Mandarin Oriental hotel on the night of Jan. 15. She said she met the singer and his friends earlier that evening at a nightclub near the Champs-Élysées.

Brown maintained his innocence in an Instagram caption shared with a photo that reads, “This bitch lyin’.”

“I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR,” he wrote. “THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! … FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL [sic] AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”

“You go to any big designer. I had my team hit out a lot of designers, and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m ‘too big.’ Literally, I’m ‘too big.'”

Bebe Rexha is speaking out. The pop songstress called out designers on Monday for refusing to dress her for the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on February 10.

The 29-year-old “Meant to Be” singer, who earned her first Grammy nomination in December, posted a video on Instagram about the matter at hand. She explained how her team reached out to multiple designers, but they rejected the opportunity to create a custom red carpet outfit for her because she’s “too big.” She elaborated on the issue further in the post’s caption.

“If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size,” Rexha wrote. “Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less than by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys.”

In the short clip’s caption on Twitter, Rexha said the rude designers won’t hold her back, “My size 8 a** is still going to the Grammys.”

Rexha is nominated for both Best New Artist and Country Duo/Performance for her collab with Florida Georgia Line.

Since her post, a number of designers have apparently reached out to the singer to volunteer their services. Designers such as August Getty, Tanya Taylor and Elizabeth Kennedy all replied that they would love to outfit Rexha for the event.

Fellow singer Demi Lovato praised Rexha in the comments section of her video. “F**king preach!!!” Lovato wrote. “Love this and you for speaking your mind and using your voice!”

“We are beautiful any size! Small or large!” she added. “Anddddd my size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY.
