Ellen Degeneres is one of the most charismatic and genuinely good people in the forefront of media today. She’s remained positive throughout her entire career and continues to provide her audience positive content and messages with her daytime television show outlet, The Ellen Degeneres Show.
Colin Kaepernick joined the likes of Joan Baez and Nelson Mandela when he accepted Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday, April 21 – and considering the message he delivered upon being bestowed with the honor, the former 49ers quarterback by no means failed the…
Charlie Puth gears up for his sophomore album VoiceNotes with the video for “Done for Me,” his duet with Kehlani.
Directed by RJ Sanchez and Brendan Vaughn, the sensual visual features stylistic references to the ’80s. The pop heartthrob sings about his devotion to his lady in front of a mirror, while Kehlani takes her girl into a bubble bath.
“I lie for you, baby,” sings Puth. “I die for you, baby / Cry for you, baby / But tell me what you’ve done for me.” Lani adds: “I won’t beg for your love, won’t say please / I won’t fall to the ground on my knees.”
Last month, Charlie opened up about the collaboration with Baelani. “You know when you meet somebody and you just know that you’re going to be friends with them for a really, really long time?” he said. “That was her when I met her. She’s just such a warm and outgoing person and just such a good distinct voice.”
This is just the latest single from Charlie’s highly-anticipated album VoiceNotes, which will also feature “Attention,” “How Long,” the Boyz II Men duet “If You Leave Me Now,” “Patient,” and “Change” featuring James Taylor.
VoiceNotes is due May 11.

J.Lo is ready to roll out “Dinero.”
Months after announcing a collaboration with Cardi B and DJ Khaled, Jennifer Lopez shot a video for her powerhouse single.
The Father of Asahd shared images of the trio on set. He also posted behind-the-scenes looks featuring Jenny from the Block. At around the same time, short clips from the luxurious set surfaced on Instagram.
Khaled confirmed the collaboration back in December. “I told the icon @jlo that not only do I see her vision. I am honored and grateful to have the opportunity to be involved,” he wrote. “The key is to express your greatness with clarity and passion. FAN LUV! J LO GOT NEW MUSIC COMING.”
Lopez also spoke about the video in December. “It’s cinematic,” she said. “It has those themes. I was just trying to connect it to the song where it’s just not the typical reggaeton, bachata, hip-hop video that everybody does all the time.” Khaled added: “The video idea is gonna make the record even more crazier.”
Originally, the song was due in January. However, Lopez pushed it back and previewed the song at Calibash. “Yo quiero dinero,” she sings on he cut, which translates to “I love money” or “I want money.” Cardi celebrated the preview. “This is a Bronx girl dream,” she said. “I just can’t believe I.T.”
J.Lo may premiere “Dinero” live at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday (April 26). She is set to take the stage in Las Vegas for what’s being billed as a “special performance.”

It seems like Lil Pump has a message for J. Cole. Many people believe that the “Gucci Gang” rapper responded to Cole’s perceived diss on his new song “1985 (Intro to ‘The Fall Off’).”
Taking to social media, Pump’s video message was concise and to the point. “Wow,” he said. “So much props. You dissed a 17-year-old. Lame ass jit.”
Some believe this was a direct reply to Cole’s “1985.” It’s the closing song off Cole’s KOD, which dropped earlier in the day. But the song’s target remains unclear.
“All these ni**as poppin’ now is young,” raps Cole. “Everybody say the music that they make is dumb / I remember, I was 18 / Money, pussy, parties, I was on the same thing.” He also raps about someone’s “funky lil’ rap name” and ends it with a message: “Just remember what I told you when your shit flop / In five years you gon’ be on ‘Love & Hip Hop.’”
Cole and Pump have history. In 2016, many thought Jermaine’s “Everybody Dies” was at least in part about the “Gucci Gang” rapper. Pump retaliated to that perceived diss with a song called “Fuck J. Cole.”

Ariana Grande might have “No Tears Left to Cry,” but she does have surprises left to give. On Friday (April 20), the pop princess shocked the Coachella crowd when she descended upon Kygo’s set for the first live performance of her new single.
Grande’s manager Scooter Braun fueled rumors about the appearance when he asked her what she was doing via Twitter. Shortly after this, Ari posted a video of herself and boyfriend Mac Miller on their way to the desert in a helicopter.
Ari’s moment arrived in the middle of Kygo’s set. She debuted lavender hair and a matching ensemble, complete with a body-hugging top, tutu, thigh-high heels, and black fanny pack.
It was also the live debut of her fourth album’s lead single, a triumphant track inspired by the 2017 Manchester bombing. The song dropped on Friday, along with a Dave Meyers-directed video that pulled inspiration from Inception.
For his part, Kygo also delivered an emotionally-charged set. It ended with a tribute to Avicii, the Swedish DJ who died earlier in the day. He was 28.
Watch Ariana turn it up at Coachella.

Kamaiyah may got love for the streets, but she’s not riding its wave. In her new clip off Before I Wake, she ops out of putting in work and gets baptized instead. Amen.
