Good for these celebs for throwing their full weight behind change!

Today, Billboard released its new cover, and instead of focusing on an album or celeb, or new artist, it's on something far more important: gun control legislation.

The mag's cover is an open letter directed to Congress asking for one very simple thing: sensible, simple changes on gun control legislation.

The cover (above) is signed by SO many musicians and entertainers — 194 of them to be exact — in demanding legislation, and the powerful open letter is being sent to every single chief of staff of all 535 Senators and Congressmen and women.

Celebs from Yoko Ono and the two surviving BeatlesPaul McCartney and Ringo Starr — to Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Zayn, Alicia Keys, and SO many more have attached their name to it.

And what they want is VERY simple and sensible.

As you can see, it's outlined in their open letter (below):

BET Awards Announce Their Own Prince Tribute After Trashing Madonna's — And This One Will Be The Most Personal Yet!

Pretty much every artist under the sun has performed a moving tribute to Prince since his tragic death in April.

And while BET didn't seem to think much of Madonna's tribute at the Billboard Music Awards, the cable network is taking matters for honoring The Purple One in its own hands!

BET Networks announced the late music legend will be honored at the 2016 BET Awards with a special live performance by Sheila E., The Roots, D'Angelo, Janelle Monae, and more!

This news comes on the heels of the network trashing Madge's May performance — which featured a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder — insinuating the tribute was underwhelming in a pretty shady tweet.

In a since-deleted video, BET ran a short teaser of the Material Girl's performance, writing "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."

But apparently, they DO got us — because Sheila E.'s involvement will easily make this the most personal Prince tribute yet!

The network also announced Alicia Keys and Maxwell, along with more stars, will also be performing at this year's award show.

Do U think BET's Prince tribute will live up to the hype? Watch the performance when the 2016 BET Awards airs on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET on BET!

With a slew of new music and powerful makeup-free photosAlicia Keys is back on top of her game!

The 35-year-old beauty recently spilled her heart in a Lenny Letter talking about learning to embrace imperfections instead of being ruled by judgement.

From growing up in the "tough" streets of NYC to transitioning into the "harsh, judgmental world of entertainment," the In Common singer wrote about the moments "where some piece of you realizes that to fit in or be thought of as beautiful, you have to cover up to be a bit closer to perfect."

She penned:

"I started, more than ever, to become a chameleon. Never fully being who I was, but constantly changing so all the 'they's' would accept me."

DJ Khaled would advise to stay away from "they" — as we all know!

But Miz Keys said when she started her new album, she spent time figuring out her world impact:

Blake Shelton is busy wrapping up this season of The Voice all while promoting his new relationship album If I'm Honest!

The most discussed track on the country crooner's album is undoubtedly his duet with Gwen Stefani Go Ahead and Break My Heart — but some find the love ballad a bit confusing!

When Blake stopped by Tuesday's' Kathie Lee and Hoda, the cohosts agreed that they felt the heartbreaking lyrics contradicted the lovey-dovey "vibe" they got from the song.

| Filed under: Music MinuteAlicia Keys

We're loving this revamped version of Alicia Keys!

On Friday, Alicia gifted us with the beautiful music video for In Common, a song about "individuality" and acceptance. The song is the first taste of new music we've had from Ms. Keys since her 2012 album Girl On Fire.

Video: Brie Larson & Alicia Team Up For SNL!

Not only does the black and white vid features a flawless A.K. sans makeup, but it also shows her in a more casual look. The beauty's ensemble really vibes well with the relaxed and unique tone of the video.

To make the endeavor even more lovely, it features a TON of talented dancers showing off their moves amidst a stripped down and urban backdrop. Let's just say there's a lot of gifted people in this work!

Speaking to Fader Magazine about the vid's concept, she gushed:

It's safe to say Blake Shelton has REALLY enjoyed his time being a coach on The Voice!

Not only did the NBC singing competition expose the country crooner to a primetime audience, but it introduced him to Gwen Stefani — who he serendipitously fell in love with in a budding romance that overshadowed last season's actual competition.

But it looks like Blake's lady love won't be heading back to The Voice anytime soon! The Hollaback Girl singer is preparing to go on tour, and producers are bringing fresh meat Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys on board as coaches for next season.
