Celine says Nicki is doing a 'good job' by lip-syncing her 1996's hit song titled 'It's All Come Back to Me Now'.

Celine Dion just gave her approval to Nicki Minaj's lip-syncing video. The "Because You Loved Me" songstress took notice of the "No Frauds" hitmaker's dramatic lip sync to her 1996's classic song titled "It's All Coming Back to Me Now". 

The "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker took to Twitter to let people know how much she loved Nicki's impersonation video. "Excellente interpretation !! / Good job [Nicki Minaj!!" wrote Celine in the caption, adding a laughing and a thumb's up emojis. 

Flustered, the "Side to Side" rapper replied to Celine's tweet, "I love you so much. thank you!!!" Later, Nicki shared on Instagram a screenshot of Celine's post and proudly captioned it, "[Ariana Grande] [Dawn Richard] look who hit me y'all !!!!!!! It's [Celine Dion]." She excitedly added, "wait til I tell my mother." 

Everything began when the "Regret in Your Tears" hitmaker passionately lip-syncing Celine's classic song. In the short video, the rapper added some hand gestures and body moves, which made the lip sync looked more dramatic. Nicki also caught fans' attention as she could be seen donning a stunning gold chainmail dress that left little to the imagination. "#CelineDion stopped by," the rapper hilariously captioned the video. 

 

It’s been 25 years since Hanson—the dreamy ’90s boy band comprised of brothers Zac, Isaac and Taylor Hanson—launched. And now, two decades after the release of their radio smash hit, 1997’s saccharine “Mmmbop,” the boys are back in town with a worldwide reunion tour.

The “Middle of Everywhere” tour kicks off in Germany on June 17 and will take the brothers to cities around the world, with stops planned (middle of) everywhere from London to Paris to Austin to New York City and beyond, through the autumn.

“Making music together for 25 years is a milestone that we had to acknowledge, and what better way to do it than with an anniversary tour,” Taylor said in a press release.

“This year is not only about the two decades of music, it’s about celebrating the incredible community of fans who have been with us, singing along year after year,” Isaac added.

Often regarded as one of the 1990s’ most iconic one-hit-wonders, the boys—now men, actually, with families and kids of their own—have taken no breaks since their breakout 20 years ago, touring and releasing music through the years as well as launching a brand of beer fittingly called “Mmmhops.”

This week, the band celebrated the announcement of the tour, along with Taylor’s 34th birthday, with a brand new song, “I Was Born,” on March 14.

 

Drag icon and singer RuPaul shared some happy news this week, confirming that he married his partner Georges LeBar — and they wed back in January.

You might say the two have been dating for awhile: RuPaul and George have been together for 23 years, in fact. The Emmy-winning RuPaul‘s Drag Race host publicly announced it to Ross Matthews and Amanda Salas on Hollywood Today Live on Wednesday (March 15), when the show’s hosts asked about RuPaul’s low-profile relationship.

“He’s a great guy — but you know, he doesn’t care about show business at all. He could care less,” RuPaul said, explaining that Australian LeBar prefers life on his own massive ranch that sits on both South Dakota and Wyoming (same!). When Mathews pressed RuPaul on their future plans, he casually spilled the beans.

“I’ve never said this on television before: We are married!” RuPaul said, to cheers from the studio audience. They married on their 23rd anniversary, marking the fateful night the two met on the dance floor of New York City’s now-defunct Limelight club — which also happens to be Georges’ birthday.

“We were looking into it really for tax breaks and financial things,” RuPaul told Hollywood Today Live. Gay and lesbian couples finally attained the right to marry on a federal level with a Supreme Court ruling in June of 2015.

RuPaul isn’t the only star to get stealth-married this year: Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer secretly married boyfriend David Rooklin in February, while Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley married Domino Kirke in a small Brooklyn City Hall ceremony.

 

Tyler Perry's father made it out of his Los Angeles home just in time after it was engulfed in flames started by what fire officials are suspecting to be electrical issues.

According to WBRZ, Emmitt Perry's Greensburg home burned down to the ground on Monday night with Fire Districts arriving at the residence to clear the fire at around 8 p.m.

"I heard something popping in the attic," Perry said. "I went upstairs and let the [attic] stairs down. I couldn't smell any smoke. I didn't see anything burning."

Perry said it wasn't until he went outside that he noticed the fire from the clouds of smoke billowing near his chimney.

"I then went to call the fire department, and my daughter was coming in the gate," he said. "And she said, 'I already called them.'"

According to witnesses, the fire was visible from several miles away from the residence. More than 50 firefighters and thousands of gallons of water were needed to control the flames.

"I made it out alive," he said. "If it wouldn't have happened then, me and my daughter would've probably been in there, and we would have burned up.

 

A Philadelphia woman named Tiffany Whyte has made a shocking revelation by saying that she's the long-lost daughter of Janet and her ex-husband James DeBarge.

Rumors have been swirling for years suggesting that Janet Jackson and first husband James DeBarge had a secret child during their marriage. And now, a woman from Philadelphia has come forward to shockingly reveal that she's the long-lost child of the 50-year-old singer. 

Radar Online was the first to report the news. The publication also provided some photos of the woman in question, whose name is Tiffany Whyte. She told the news outlet, "I've been kept a secret a very long time," adding, "I want people to know the truth." 

Back in 2012, James, who is now 53 years old, claimed that he and Janet had given a child up for adoption before their split in 1985. However, Janet, who recently welcomed her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, has never publicly commented on the scandal. 

Tiffany told the publication that Janet "has been denying me for many years." She said she "waited for 31 years." She revealed she first came to believe she was Janet's heir "roughly seven years ago" when she was approached by a woman claiming to be Janet. Tiffany insisted that "now it's time for me to tell my truth." 

"Having grown up in the state foster system, Tiffany never knew her real parents, and the messages seemed like a miracle," according to the publication. While reps for both Janet and James are yet to comment on the report, the news outlet noted that "in recent weeks, Whyte's alleged grandmother, Etterlene DeBarge, announced that she and Tiffany have taken their own test, and it was a match."

 

Celine Dion‘s song off Disney‘s Beauty and the Beast soundtrack landed online March 10.

“How Does a Moment Last Forever” is a twinkling, sweeping piano ballad about how love causes “time and place stand [to] still,” and features the French-Canadian’s emotive vocals over a lush, romantic soundscape.

Dion also sung the ballad version of “Beauty and the Beast” (played during the credits) for the original 1991 animated movie.

 

Steve Harvey‘s dream travel itinerary: Anywhere but Colombia. The former Miss Universe host says that after botching the reveal of the 2015 winner —during which he mistakenly named Miss Colombia the victor (it was actually Miss Philippines) — he received death threats so intense he was afraid to leave his house.

In a new interview with Cigar Aficionado, Harvey said the fallout from the error was intense, and that he had to beef up his personal protection just to keep up with warnings from angry Colombians.

“I live on a dead-end street — and it got real when things started coming over the gate,” he said. “Empty boxes with bows and pictures of bombs. And these with death threats on social media that would pop up from fake IP addresses. I wound up with 24-hour armed security at my house. I have two armed guards there full-time to this day.”

Harvey added that more than a year after the error, he’s still facing consequences, but that the day after the snafu was particularly tough.

“In the Philippines, they love me — but I can’t go to Colombia,” he said. “The next morning, there was this massive crowd, all around my car outside the hotel—all these Colombians giving me hell. My Twitter and Instagram blew up and I got called every name in the book. I got cussed out in Spanish so bad that I know profanity in Spanish now.”

 

Joni Sledge, who with her sisters recorded the defining dance anthem “We Are Family,” has died, the band’s representative says.

 

She was 60.

 

Sledge was found dead in her home by a friend in Phoenix, Arizona, on Friday, the band’s publicist, Biff Warren, said Saturday. A cause of death has not been determined.

 

“Yesterday, numbness fell upon our family. We are saddened to inform you that our dear sister, mother, aunt and cousin, Joni passed away yesterday. Please pray for us as we weep for this loss. We do know that she is now eternally with Our Lord,” a family statement read.

 

Sledge and her sisters Debbie, Kim and Kathy formed the Sister Sledge in 1971, but had their breakout success in 1979 with “We Are Family.” The dance song became an anthem of unity and women empowerment.

 

Sledge is survived by an adult son besides her sisters and other relatives.

Barack and Michelle Obama had lunch with U2 frontman and activist Bono in New York City on Friday.

 

The trio sat in a private dining room downstairs at Upland in Manhattan, a source tells PEOPLE.

 

As Bono and the Obamas walked out of the eatery, the source says “the whole restaurant stood up and applauded and cheered for them. Barack Obama waved at everyone upon leaving.”

 

The former president looked relaxed and happy as he left the restaurant wreathed in smiles and wearing a sleek black suit and white shirt with the top few buttons undone. It was a slightly more dressed-up look than the streamlined brown leather jacket and new and improved dad jeans he was spotted wearing last Sunday during an visit with his wife to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. — where they also earned a round of applause from fellow museum-goers.

 

The former first lady looked equally breezy during Friday’s lunch outing, wearing a color-block white, black and gray shirt, black pants and a long gray coat.

 

Oprah Winfrey is proud to show off her smaller waist in the April issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. The 63-year-old TV personality reveals that she has lost 45 pounds since she joined Weight Watchers in 2015. "Nearing the 45-pound weight loss mark is a great feeling!" says Oprah. 

 

Oprah suggests that the loss of her weight is the result of a lifestyle change instead of years of dieting. "After spending literally years on more diets than I care to count, I finally made the shift from dieting to a lifestyle change," explains Oprah. "Everyone is different, but for me what's worked is Weight Watchers... Today I'm more conscious about what I eat, balancing indulgent things with healthier options." 

 

"The Oprah Winfrey Show" host later explains that Weight Watchers encourages her to take a holistic approach to health and fitness. "The folks at Weight Watchers called me in July and asked if I'd join their team - help spread the message about taking a holistic approach to health and fitness," says Oprah. 

 

Oprah later adds, "Everyone is different, but for me what's worked is Weight Watchers… Today I'm more conscious about what I eat, balancing indulgent things with healthier options," she says. Oprah adds, "I leave the table feeling satisfied - and to me, that's far more important than any number on the scale." 

 

Oprah says that while some people can live without bread and pasta, she thinks that "it just doesn't make sense" to her. She later adds, "I wanted a plan for life, and here it was in the form of Weight Watchers. For me, this is not a diet. It's a whole shift in perspective. So yes, for sure, I'm a bona fide convert."
