The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences declined to nominate Taylor's song "Beautiful Ghosts", which she co-wrote with Oscar-winner Andrew Lloyd Webber. Adding insult to injury, Beyonce's lackluster song "Spirit" from the Lion King soundtrack was nominated for an Oscar, as was Pharrell Williams' track "Never Too Late".

Troubled singer Chris Brown soared above the stage during his concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida over the weekend. Brown strapped himself into a harness and performed acrobatic moves in the air as his backgrounded dancers gyrated below him. The 27-year-old also performed a risqué sex simulation onstage with one of his LSLH dancers. As you know, Brown is not fond of dark skinned women, so there is only one token sista among his dancers. Sources say Brown canceled meet and greets and only allows his road crew backstage at every stop to avoid being served a restraining order filed by ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

Jennifer Hudson Heads To The 2016 Met Gala

BEST DRESSED

Jennifer Hudson slayed at the 2016 Met Gala in a white and silk H&M toffee colored gown featuring a long, feathery train. Jen revealed why she wore the H&M gown for her first appearance at the Ball since 2011.

“To me, H&M is a bridge between the everyday girl and the Hollywood girl,” she told People Style. “It represents every girl and every woman, and I feel like we all connect to it. So I feel like I’m representing every girl. I really do.”

“It’s a bit nerve-wracking,” she said of the massive red carpeted stairs. “The stairs they are huge. I swear the bannisters are blocks apart from each other! But I told H&M, ‘Don’t you worry, because I am going to display this dress.’ I’m determined to. I get a little nervous when I think about being in the middle of everything. And this is a dress that you will notice in the middle of everything. So I must be focused and ready.”
