1. Madonna kicked off her Rebel Heart Tour in Montreal last night…
After what has felt like years of anticipation, the Material Girl kicked off her Rebel Heart Tour in Montreal last night..and it’s everything we expected after the icon’s endless teases on Instagram leading up to her latest road spectacle.
There were pole dancers dressed like nuns, blinding nonstop theatrics, and…Mike Tyson? Yas.
With a mix of tracks from her “Rebel Heart” record (“Unapologetic Bitch,” “Iconic,” “Living for Love,” among others.), and classic tracks like “Dress You Up,” “Vogue,” “Holiday,”(which served as the encore.), and a track she hasn’t performed live in nearly 25 years, “Material Girl,” the Queen of Pop certainly owned the stage last night, with Philly DJ and producer Diplo opening things up for good Material measure.
The diva certainly wasted no time in getting to down to concert business, dressed up in a barely there nun’s outfit,(and of course, a matador.) while riding one of her dancers (who was also dressed like a nun) as her personal “surfbordt.” And The Last Supper recreation? Priceless.
But perhaps the biggest highlight of the evening came during Madonna’s rendition of the French classic “La Vie en Rose,” in which the audience went wild and delightfully sang along. Even better is when she threw shade towards her marriages. “Who wants to get hitched? Anybody want to get married? Sucker? It’s downhill from here.” She later followed up with: “In spite of all of that heartbreak, pain and suffering, I wouldn’t trade love for anything.”
And those outfits, which were designed by Miuccia Prada, Jeremy Scott and Alexander Wang, only further prove that Madonna is just that unapologetic concert bitch. For pics of last night’s opener, check your music life right here.
The Rebel Heart Tour is set to takeover Philly on Sept 24th.
2.Justin Bieber just owned the Today show…
Justin Bieber is back….
Words we thought we would never say again, but now they’re words that are indeed true. Just moments before Bieber performed for a hungry tween buffet of rain-soaked fans on the Today show this morning in New York City, the hosts presented the pop star with a plaque commemorating a major honor.
As reported last week, Mr. Biebs became the youngest male artist to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “What Do You Mean?”, his tropical kissed new smash and also his first No. 1 hit on the chart. In fact, several people from Guinness World Records stopped by the Today show to deliver the plaque, which the hosts then handed to Bieber before he served up his hits, “Where Are U Now” and “Boyfriend.”
After he made everybody swoon, Bieber sipped music tea inside the Today interior, answering some tough questions that were thrown his way. “I didn’t leave, but I took some time to do some soul-searching,” Bieber admitted when asked about his recent music break. When asked if he’d be interested in performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Bieber had no problem saying. “I’d be interested. I’m down,” he said.
That just might be a possibly these days for Justin. Stay tuned for more on this one.
3. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are rapping again….

5.Ellen threw major truth towards her stint on American Idol.…
Remember American Idol? Better yet, remember when Ellen served as a judge? Lol…
Well, not to worry because Ms. DeGeneres doesn’t miss her days when she judged Idol’s 10th season. (Hey, Ms. Kara.)
Telling Howard Stern on Tuesday, she stated that doing AI was “one of the worst decisions I’ve made,” and that she couldn’t stand crushing so many people’s music hopes and dreams.
“As a fan of the shows, it doesn’t matter that I sing or I know anything about pitch … I’m like everybody else at home, so I thought I’m gonna represent those people at home that have opinions,” Ellen said, according to The Wrap. “But then I just thought, like Howard says, I can’t break this person’s heart. Let somebody else do that.”
Do you think Ellen will return when AI says goodbye next year? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
