We hope there were extra fire marshals on hand during Monday night's premiere of Alice Through The Looking Glass!

Because Pink almost burned Hollywood Blvd to the ground performing her hit Just Like Fire!

After performing a high-flying version of the song at the Billboard Music Awards, the 36-year-old rocked out again outside the El Capitan Theater — this time, dressed in her signature color.

Selena Gomez must have quite conflicting feelings about this…

While Justin Bieber didn't have the best time at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, it looks like he had a much more enjoyable Monday all thanks to Taylor Swift.

After winning Top Male Artist and Top Social Media Artist at the Las Vegas-based event, the 22-year-old decided to relax in his car listening to some T.Swift music late Monday night.

However, The Biebs wasn't about to be a casual fan and listen to something obvious like Blank Space or New Romantics… he threw it way back to 2007 with Tay Tay's Teardrops on My Guitar!

Justin shared a rather adorable video to Instagram of himself singing along to the country song, and while he may only know the chorus, we're sure Taylor was flattered.

Now when will Taylor cover Baby??

Ben Folds Opens Up About Kesha's Dr. Luke Drama & Says Their Performance At The Billboard Music Awards Was Her 'Declaration Of Independence!'

| Filed under: Music MinuteSin CityKeshaBillboard Music AwardsControversy

See what Ben has to say about the Dr. Luke drama!

Kesha really is taking her life back.

On Sunday, the pop princess earned a standing ovation after slaying a powerful performance of Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me Babe alongside Ben Folds and violinist Rob Moose.

Everyone was eagerly awaiting the 29-year-old's time on the T-Mobile Arena stage, considering Dr. Luke had almost banned her from singing during the show.

On Monday, the former Ben Folds Five frontman opened up to Billboard about their emotional collaboration, explaining that the Sony producer screwed up their original plan by pulling the plug:

"We were slated to do it for weeks, and [last week] she was heading over to my house and we were getting ready to practice and I got the word that it was in fact canceled. Rob Moose [of yMusic], who played violin [at the BBMAs], and I had arranged it for a small chamber ensemble. And [during the Orpheum performance last week], it went over really well. But then we got the call: 'Actually, you're on [for the BBMAs], bring the ensemble.' 'Oh, we can't because they're all on airplanes now,' so Rob and I just pared it down."

But the 49-year-old admitted that the TiK ToK artist didn't have any intention of calling out her alleged abuser at the ceremony.

He explained why the singer kept her promise to leave the Kemosabe Records label head out of her TV time, saying:

Even Britney Spears & Celine Dion Couldn't Save The Billboard Music Awards From Having The Worst Ratings In 4 Years!

| Filed under: TV NewsMadonnaMusic MinuteBritney SpearsAwardzCeline DionLudacrisCiaraBillboard Music Awards

It's official: no one watches award shows anymore!

While the Billboard Music Awards were certainly the talk of the town on Sunday night, it doesn't look like the rest of the country was that interested in the industry — or at least not watching on TV.

That's because despite crowd-pleasing performances from Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Madonna, and even The Go-Go's, the BBMAs actually pulled in their worst numbers in four years!

Apparently, only 8.9 million people tuned in to watch the 3-hour-long event, giving ABC a measly 2.9 rating in the 18-39 demo — that's only slightly better than 2012's 7.4M/2.7!

However, the network was able to beat out NBC's The Carmichael Show, CBS' Undercover Boss, and FOX's animation domination to win the night… but still, we're not impressed.

Maybe Ciara and Ludacris weren't as great hosts as we thought…

Did U tune in for the BBMAs last night??

What an emotional night.

Celine Dion pretty much won the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday thanks to her showstopping performance of Queen's The Show Must Go On.

However, it was the moment after the song finished that has people talking, because the 48-year-old broke down on stage after being presented with the Icon Award by her 15-year-old son René-Charles.
