DJ Khaled Pays Tribute to Nipsey Hussle on SNL with John Legend, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill & More

Rest in power.

DJ Khaled and John Legend paid tribute to slain rapper Nipsey Hussle on Saturday Night Live, while performing “Higher,” their joint track with Hussle, which was released on Friday, nearly two months after the rapper was gunned down outside of his Los Angeles clothing store.

“Long live Nipsey Hussle, the Marathon Continues,” Khaled, who was wearing a sweatshirt with a portrait of Nipsey, said as he introduced Legend.

Then, the pair were joined by Khaled’s Father of Asahd collaborators Meek Mill, Sza, J Balvin, Big Sean, Lil Wayne, Jeremih and Lil Baby, who all performed on SNL.

Two days before releasing the track, along with the rapper’s final music video, Khaled announced that all of the song’s proceeds would be donated to Nipsey’s children — son Kross, 2½, with girlfriend Lauren London and daughter Emani, 10, from a previous relationship.

“Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years. It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend Nipsey Hussle,” Khaled shared in a statement on Twitter.

The hitmaker went on to reveal that just days before Nipsey was killed on March 31, “he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, ‘Higher.’ ”

“After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sh

Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Her Relationship with Ben Simmons and Possibilities of Marriage

Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Her Relationship with Ben Simmons and Possibilities of Marriage

Kendall Jenner hasn’t spoken much about her love life lately, but the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently opened up on details about her private relationship with boyfriend Ben Simmons.

In an interview with Vogue Australia, for which she was named the magazine’s cover star, Jenner opened up about her relationship with the Australian-born NBA player and how close the two are from tying the knot.

“Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day,” Jenner said of her plans for marriage. “I got a glimpse of how my sisters dealt with and it’s cool to learn from that,” she added.

“For me, a lot of things are very special and very sacred, like my friends and relationships, and I personally think that bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier,” the supermodel said.

“I’ve always been the person to prove wrong, even when I was younger,” #KendallJenner tells Vogue’s deputy editor Jessica Montague in the June 2019 issue, on sale Monday, May 27. “I’ve always been a hard worker: that’s in my blood. My parents raised me and my little sister to be that way and the rest of my sisters, too. A lot of people assumed that because I came from a ‘name’ that it was a lot easier for me to get to where I got, but actually it’s the completely opposite.” Read the interview and see the entire shoot in the link in the bio.

While marriage seems out of the 23-year-old’s mind, the star is still very much in a committed relationship with the Philadelphia 76ers point guard. Jenner FaceTimed Simmons before her Vogue interview and even streamed her boyfriend’s game while sitting in the hair and makeup chair prior to the cover shoot, according to the publication.

Speaking about the importance of privacy in a relationship, Jenner said she took into account her status as a member of the always camera-ready Kardashian and Jenner families.

Ariana Grande Dresses Up as an Astronaut During NASA Space Center Visit — and Plays Her Song 'NASA'

One small step for woman, one giant leap for woman-kind!

After performing for a sold-out crowd in San Antonio, Texas, Ariana Grande accepted the opportunity to visit NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston on Saturday.

The pop star, 25, documented her tour on Instagram Story in videos that showed her dressed in an astronaut’s uniform, complete with helmet.

“Thank you for the coolest day of my life @nasa,” Grande captioned one of her videos.

“My mind is still processing and devouring every second of what just happened but I can’t wait to share more. What a special day and experience. Thank you so so so so much for your generosity and for showing my friends n I around,” she said.

The singer’s friend even played her hit song “NASA” during the visit!

The opening verse of the single, off her album Thank U, Next, can be heard with RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Shangela’s remix of Neil Armstrong’s iconic quote, “This is one small step for woman, one giant leap for womankind,” playing on a cell phone.

And even the Mission Control’s screen read: “Welcome to Mission Control Ariana Grande.’

Grande’s visit to NASA comes three days after Shangela, who also starred in A Star Is Born opposite Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, revealed to fans and followers on Instagram how she originally wanted to record her “NASA” opener and her “vision” for a drag performance of the song.

“This is my vision for ‘NASA,’ it’s all about space. I see myself coming in in a clear bubbl

Dozens of Graduates and Faculty Walk Out in Protest Before Mike Pence's Commencement Address

Dozens of Graduates and Faculty Walk Out in Protest Before Mike Pence's Commencement Address

Dozens of Taylor University faculty members and graduating students walked out of Mike Pence’s commencement speech on Saturday morning.

The group quietly exited the auditorium in protest of the appropriateness of Pence’s presence at the graduation ceremony in Upland, Indiana. Shortly before the vice president delivered the nondenominational Christian liberal arts school’s commencement speech, many were seen leaving their seats.

The protest had been planned beforehand, as controversy surrounded his invitation to speak at the commencement ceremony when it was announced earlier this month, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Pence, 59, has remained a controversial figure in an already controversial Trump administration, with the former Indiana governor having a history of anti-LGBTQ political positions.

During his commencement address, he took the opportunity to express his religious beliefs in front of the 494 graduates

“Throughout most of our American history it’s been pretty easy to call yourself a Christian, but things are different now,” Pence said during his speech, according to the Star. “Lately, it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to malign traditional Christian beliefs.”

Not everyone shared the protestors opinion of the Vice President, as Pence received a standing ovation after the walkout.

But for the dozens of graduates and faculty members who left in protest of Pence’s speech, the walkout made the statement that his presence was not entirely welcomed by the Taylor University student body.

“I thought it was a really inappropriate decision,” graduate Laura Rathburn, who joined protestors in walking out on Pence’s commencement address, told the Star. “I think his presence makes it difficult for everyone at Taylor to feel welcomed.”

Stickers created by the school’s social work department and distributed to the protestors read, “We are Taylor too,” in protest of the Vice President’s speech.

Kate Middleton Plays on a Swing as She Previews Garden Design for Chelsea Flower Show

Kate Middleton Plays on a Swing as She Previews Garden Design for Chelsea Flower Show

Kate Middleton is just days away from unveiling her showpiece creation for the annual Chelsea Flower Show!

On Saturday, three days before the opening, the royal mom of three, 37, shared four behind-the-scenes photos from the preparations on the Kensington Palace Instagram and Twitter pages.

“In recent years I have focused much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life,” Kate said in the caption. “I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”

In one of the pictures, Kate, who was an art history major at the University of St. Andrews, can be seen playfully enjoying a swing seat that is placed under a tree house, which serves as the garden’s centerpiece.

The swing was included with hopes to encourage “creative play and discovery for all generations” while the woodland wilderness garden “aims to get people back to nature, and highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing.”
