Bobbi Kristina will take part in a tribute to honor her mother Whitney Houston during the upcoming 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
The program, which airs Sunday at 8/7c, will feature a musical tribute, and Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina is scheduled to participate. As you know, Bobbi Kristina is working on an upcoming album and she will likely perform one of her mother's hit songs during the tribute.
Bobbi Kristina, who reportedly dropped her father's last name, will also appear in a reality show on Lifetime network featuring members of the Houston family including Whitney's mother Cissy Houston.
Whitney passed away on February 11 of a drug overdose and heart disease.
You can say what you want about troubled singer Rihanna, but she is killing the game right now (pun intended). Rihanna showed that she can easily compete with Angelina Jolie by showing off her lanky legs at the premiere of 'Battleship' in Downtown Los Angeles Thursday.
The singer and actress co-designed the white, backless dress with the plunging neckline for Armani Collections, giving onlookers a glimpse of her sexy, lithesome figure.
No one seemed to notice the other stars in the film as Rihanna made even seasoned paparazzi collectively catch their breath.

Gheys and lesbians are celebrating the biggest news since the passage of the gay marriage law in New York in 2011.
Hollywood's most well-known lesbian, Queen Latifah, has finally come out of the closet. The rapper-turned-actress made the transition quietly, in a press release announcing her commitment to headline this year's annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival.
It is the first time that Latifah, real name Dana Owens, has ever participated in a Gay Pride celebration.
Sandrarose.com was the first to break the scoop that Latifah, 42, and her longtime lover Jeanette Jenkins had split up in 2011 (thanks to my west coast connect for the tip!).
That's when Latifah began dating a choreographer, who some say helped break up her relationship with Jenkins.

Most of us who didn't watch season 4 of Bravo's partially scripted 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' really don't care that the reunion show is coming up. But some of you do care. So here's the tea: RHOA veteran Sheree Whitfield has apparently been shown the door -- but she won't be leaving quietly. Sources say Sheree will "lose her mind" during the show's finale. She was irrelevant anyway.
It didn't help matters for Sheree that her ex-husband, Bob Whitfield, started dating Atlanta blogger Michelle, owner of StraightfromtheA.
They say Sheree was so intimidated by Michelle that she apparently used her pull with the show's producers to keep Michelle from joining the cast 2 seasons ago.
Well, Sheree's "pull" is now gone, and apparently so is she.
Bob Whitfield's disastrous appearance on the show this season failed to generate a story line. So he packed his things and moved to the west coast where he has enrolled in college. According to sources, Michelle and Whitfield continue their relationship long distance. She is considering a move to the west coast, since Bob has no plans to return to the Atlanta area.

The NY Daily News reports that struggling talk show titan Oprah has landed the first interview with Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
According to the NY Daily News, the 18-year-old will share her "personal memories” of her mother and how she’d like her to be remembered. Oprah also sat down with Whitney's most trusted confidants, her brother Gary Houston and sister-in-law, Pat. The interviews took place in Atlanta, where Bobbi Kristina once shared a townhouse with her mother.
Winfrey's team also said the family addressed the “rumors and speculation” that have surfaced in the wake of Houston's death on the eve of the Grammy Awards in February.
Houston was found unresponsive in the bathroom of her suite at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Feb. 11, the night before the Grammys.
The special will air on Oprah's OWN cable network on March 11.
Oprah's crown has been tarnished by poor ratings and traitors who jumped ship from her failing network OWN. In the past, the media seized upon the term "Oprahfication", to describe Oprah's powerful influence on pop culture. But it seems that Oprah has lost her magic touch.
Oprah walked away from her syndicated talk show Oprah, in May 2011 on the advice of a terminally ill boy who told her to end her show's successful run at an even number of years: 25.
Now, the 58-year-old media Guru is trying to save her struggling OWN network by doing more of the face-to-face interviews that made her famous.

The cast of the upcoming season of "Dancing With The Stars" has been announced. If you were born after 1997, you probably don't know who most of them are. The list includes talk show host Sherri Shepherd, who bristled at the suggestion that she might be too old to bust a move on the dance floor. "It is fighting talk," said the 44-year-old mother of one. "When somebody throws down the gauntlet and says, 'You too old,' I was like, 'I got your crayons in my purse and a colouring book on my way out, I’ll leave them in my dressing room.'"
Shepherd joins other over-the-hill stars such as soul legend Gladys Knight (who turned 68 on Tuesday); former tennis champ Martina Navratilova, 55; former "Little House on the Prairie" star Melissa Gilbert (47), and actor Jack Wagner (52). The geriatric set will compete with the youngsters such as 35-year-old Jaleel White ("Family Matters"); Extra presenter Maria Menounos, Disney's Camp Rock star Roshon Fega, Chelsie Hightower, Kym Johnson, Katherine Jenkins and Gavin DeGraw.
