Vivica A. Fox and Giuliana Rancic both pulled out of hosting the Emmys virtual red carpet event on Sunday night after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 56-year-old Kill Bill actress and Rancic, 46, were slated to co-host E! TV's Live From the Red Carpet show, but both released statements just before the special went live, explaining they had contracted the coronavirus.

"I am terribly sorry I cannot be with my E! family tonight!" Vivica wrote. "Unfortunately, I have tested positive for the coronavirus. So, in an abundance of caution I am isolating myself at home. During these unprecedented times, it's more important than ever that we follow all safety and health rules and guidelines to protect ourselves and each other."

Rancic added: "As part of E! and NBCUniversal's very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19.

"Now as much as I didn't want to hear that, I'm very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. So for that, I'm thankful... Take good care and I'll see you on the next red carpet."

Like most celebrities who use the coronavirus for PR, neither Vivica nor Giuliana are sick, but both claim to have "mild" symptoms.

Sunday night's MTV Music Video Awards was dedicated to Chadwick Boseman and the Black Lives Matter movement.

The awards show, hosted by singer/actress Keke Palmer, was filmed at several outdoor locations in New York City, without a live audience amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Keke Palmer won praise for her hosting duties as the first ever Black woman to host the VMAs. The 27-year-old Virgo dedicated the night to the late actor Chadwick Boseman and the Black Lives Matter Marxist organization.

Boseman, 43, died of colon cancer after a 4-year battle.

"Before we get to the music tonight, we need take the time to talk about the devastating loss of Chadwick Boseman, an actor whose talent and passion was a true inspiration to all the fans he touched and everyone he encountered. We dedicated tonight's show to a man whose spirit touched so many," Palmer said:

"He's a true hero, not just onscreen, but in everything he did. His impact lives forever."
 

 

"As rough as it's been, there have been incredible moments of inspiration that have given my generation hope," she said in her opening remarks. "We've seen heroes going above and beyond... And with the Black Lives Matter movement, we've seen our generation step up, take to the streets, and make sure our voices will be heard. Enough is enough!"

2. Lady Gaga Wins 5 Awards

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union were the "proud parents of a transgender child" as they thanked 13-year-old Zaya Wade for expanding their view of the world at the GLAAD Media Awards on Thursday night.

The pair appeared via remote camera during the 31st annual awards ceremony to present the prize for Outstanding Drama Series to the cast of Pose.

The couple honored Zaya, who came out as a male-to-female trans, with father Dwyane stating: "We stand as allies with the LGBTQ+ community, as proud parents of a transgender child. Our daughter Zaya is leading us on our journey, and we're doing all we can to give every one of our kids the ability to live their truth.

"I didn't always understand how to do that, but I want to thank Zaya for teaching me, and GLAAD for elevating the images and messages that accelerate acceptance in every family."

Gabrielle added: "That mission means even more to us now as we raise all of our black children. Black lives matter, and Black trans lives matter.

"We are calling on all of our racial justice warriors out there to open your hearts and your mind to the LGBTQ+ community, so that we can work together and empower each other and save lives."

Pose, a drama series about New York's ballroom culture in the 1980s and 1990s, was among the big winners at the evening's virtual ceremony, where other victors included Schitt's Creek, which took home the Outstanding Comedy Series trophy, and Booksmart, which was crowned Outstanding Film.

Rapper Lil Nas X was named Outstanding Music Artist, while Country singer Dolly Parton made a special remote appearance to collect her trophy for Outstanding Individual Episode for the "Two Doors Down" installment of her Netflix show, Dolly Parton's "Heartstrings."

Lizzo was fully dressed as a Hershey milk chocolate bar at London's 2020 BRIT Awards at The O2 Arena in London, England on Tuesday.

The pop singer had been heavily criticized for her shameless exhibitionist displays online. But on Tuesday she was fully covered and respectable in a strapless Moschino gown designed by Jeremy Scott, who also created her red sequin dress for the 2019 MTV Awards.

The 31-year-old accessorized her gown with a matching sequined bedazzled clutch that read "100%". Lizzo is nominated for the International Female Solo Artist award. She will also perform during the televised ceremony.

The morbidly obese singer spends a great deal of time exposing herself on social media.

This form of exhibitionism is diagnosed as Exhibitionist disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The sufferer feels sexually aroused by people viewing her naked or partially nude body.

Exhibitionism is more common in men.

It's Monday morning, and the Internet is still trying to figure out how Blac Chyna walked the red carpet at the 2020 Oscar Awards on Sunday night.

Blac Chyna showed up early and was among the first to walk the red carpet outside the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 9.

Her presence stunned the Internet, as she wasn't a presenter nor a nominee.

The mom-of-two wore a black velvet Dona Matoshi gown with plunging neckline and a bare-all thigh-high slit. The gown was embellished with blue gems and fringe at the shoulders. The 31-year-old wore her short black hair in finger waves.

The Oscar Awards is usually reserved for the elite of the movie industry. There's a reason why only nominees, presenters and their plus ones are invited to partake of the A-list festivities.

The main reason is the spectacular costs involved in putting together Hollywood's biggest night of the year. The gift bags alone are said to be worth a quarter of a million dollars!

There are other parties for lessers to attend if they don't get an invite to the Oscars. The Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party was well-attended by those who weren't invited to the big show. Also, the star-studded Vanity Fair Oscars party was packed.

So how did former reality TV personality Blac Chyna, a C-lister at best, wrangle an invite?

My sources tell me Blac Chyna was not invited. She simply showed up and they let her walk the red carpet!

So there you have it: Chyna crashed the Oscars red carpet hours before the event started. How brazen!

Actress Janelle Monáe's couture gown was so heavy, it required a team of 4 people to help her carry it down the red carpet.

She accessorized the gown with crystal-lacquered silk lamé platform sandals.

Billy Porter toned down his usually flamboyant red carpet style for the 92nd Annual Oscar Awards held at L.A.'s Dolby Theatre on Feb 9, 2020. The 50-year-old actor wore a Giles Deacon Couture gold feather top with a printed floor length "Cupola gown" skirt. It was an understated look from last year's head-turning Christian Siriano tuxedo dress, which caused a commotion when Porter wore it to a taping of an upcoming episode of Sesame Street. Everyone is in agreement that Porter's feminine attire is inappropriate for minor children.

Pop singer Taylor Swift, who won 10 Grammy Awards in the past, skipped this year's live telecast from the Staples Center because The Recording Academy wouldn't guarantee she'd win Song of the Year.

A source told Page Six: "Her team called and wanted to be assured that she would win the Grammy. And while it wasn't an explicit demand, they certainly were fishing to find out if Taylor was a winner."

"It was understood in the conversation that if she's not winning she's not coming to the Grammys," the insider said.

Another source added: "It's widely known in the industry that [Taylor's team] called to find out if she was getting a Grammy, they wouldn't tell her, so she didn't go. It's not uncommon [for an artist] to want to know. And everyone knows Taylor loves to win, win, win."

A rep for Taylor told Page Six, "I am on the record: these statements by anonymous, unidentified 'sources' are absolutely 100 percent false and laughable. She just didn't go to the Grammy's. You guys need to calm down."

Insiders say the Academy wanted to fill inclusivity quotas after being accused of racism and exclusivity in the past.

One-hit wonder Lil Nas X, who is openly homosexual, took home two Grammy Awards for his gimmicky rap single "Old Town Road."

18-year-old mumble singer Billie Ellish, who is rumored to be bisexual, won 5 Grammy Awards, including the coveted Song of the Year.

Tyler, the Creator finally won a Grammy award for Best Rap Album at the Staples Center on Sunday.

Tyler was apparently insulted on Aug. 25, 2011 when a follower told him he would never win a Grammy.

Hours after winning his first-ever Grammy, the petty rapper dug deep into his Twitter favorites for the tweet he saved 9 years ago.

"I FAVORITED THIS 9 YEARS AGO JUST FOR THE MOMENT TO TELL YOU I GOT ONE. YES IM PETTY AS FUCK, GOOD DAY MARK," he tweeted.

Amongst the well wishers was rapper/actor Jaden Smith, who tweeted: "My Boyfriend Just Won a Grammy."

Jaden previously tweeted that he and Tyler were involved in a same-sex relationship. But most people took his revelation as a joke, since Jaden is heterosexual.

Beyonce Knowles-Carter stole the spotlight from actor Joaquin Phoenix by refusing to give him a standing ovation at the 2020 Golden Globes Awards on Sunday.

The Internet was shocked when Beyonce remained seated as Phoenix won Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his role in Joker.

Other well-heeled celebrities stood and cheered for their colleague as he went to the podium to accept his award. But Beyonce remained seated - even as others in the audience stared hard at her.

Beyonce - who was nominated for Best Original Song for "Spirit" from The Lion King - was noticeably upset that she didn't win - again.

Outrage social media users tweeted that Beyonce was "rude" and "disrespectful."

One person tweeted:

"@Beyonce You're a joke for not standing up for Joaquin Phoenix. Understandable to make a statement. But that's poor sportsmanship for someone that actually deserved recognition. You're entitled and arrogant. And as an actress you're a joke. Smh. You ought to apologize to him."

Beyonce and Jay-Z showed up one hour late for the awards show, and they skipped the red carpet and went straight to their seats.

Question: Did you watch the Golden Globes Awards? What did you think of Beyonce's behavior?

Last year's telecast of ABC's American Music Awards hit a record all-time low in the Nielsen television ratings. If the ratings improve for tonight's AMAs telecast, ABC can thank Lizzo and her tiny Valentino purse. The purse is barely big enough to hold one Trojan condom and maybe a throat lozenge.

The morbidly obese "Truth Hurts" singer turned heads when she meandered down the red carpet wearing an orange, one-shouldered mini dress and a lacefront wig with side swept bangs. According to People magazine, she accessorized her frock with strappy white Stuart Weitzman sandals and the world's most expensive condom holder - a tiny silver Valentino purse.

"There's only three in the world," Lizzo said, as photographers zoomed in on the mini bag. When asked what she managed to pack inside the mini clutch, Lizzo responded, "I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, condoms..."

Photos of the tiny fashion accessory went viral across all social media platforms. Social media users couldn't get enough of Lizzo's personal style.

The American Music Awards got underway at 8 p.m. Sunday. Lizzo, 31, is up for 3 awards, including best new artist, soul/R&B song of the year and soul/R&B female artist of the year. Last week, she scored 8 Grammy nominations, including record of the year and song of the year for "Truth Hurts," album of the year for Cuz I Love You and best new artist.
