no title

This is some powerful stuff.

If you've been paying attention to national news lately, then you're aware that America is currently suffering from an increase in black deaths at the hands of police.

While victims like Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Trayvon Martin may never get justice at this rate, Alicia Keys is done with seeing her brothers and sisters gunned down by people who are supposed to be there to help.

Bono is truly in awe of Jennifer Lawrence!

In a candid Facebook Live Q&A for his ONE organization this past Tuesday, the singer made mention of Jennifer and her recent comments about the gender pay gap in Hollywood. Considering the icon is a big champion of gender equality himself, it's no surprise he praised the actress for her amazing work concerning the issue.

Speaking on his gender equality philosophy and how Lawrence's past comments have shaped the entertainment industry, Bono explained:

"Gender equality is at the center of any movement that holds fairness, freedom, and justice as its core values. In Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence, speaking about how actors are paid. Women have this incredible thing – bond I think you have. More than men. Women have a great sense of solidarity. It's women saying they will not have it anymore. They will not take the bad deal.”

Wow! What high praise from the singer!

Who knows, maybe the beauty can help out with ONE's "Poverty Is Sexist" campaign — we already know Oprah Winfrey and Melinda Gates are fans!

If there's a band best known for using their platform for the greater good, it's U2!

The Irish rock band have been changing lives with their music for the past three decades — but they've also changed millions of lives with their activism!

The Beautiful Day performers have started several world changing charities. Bono's ONE Campaign is fighting poverty in Africa and Product Red is aiming to eliminate HIV/AIDS!

So it's no surprise that the band took home the Innovator Award at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards!

When Bono and The Edge took the stage to collect their trophy, the frontman hoped for a brighter future — and made sure to call out Donald Trump and his supporters for the ridiculous violence occurring at his rallies! Ouch!

Ch-ch-check out the shady moment in an otherwise inspiring speech (above)!

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

Awww!

Carrie Underwood shared a precious moment with her family as her husband Mike Fisher was honored for his 1,000th NHL hockey game!

The country star gave her husband of six years a big smooch rink side as the 35-year-old was celebrated by the Nashville Predators with a silver hockey stick, a framed photo collage depicting his 16-year career, and a Tiffany crystal from the NHL.

But who really stole the show? The couple's one-year-old son Isaiah, of course!

The little cutie looked up at his gorgeous parents from his mom's arms — wearing his dad's jersey, no less — for a truly picture-perfect moment. So sweet!!!

Tons of musicians including Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Bono, and more got together to film a congratulatory video montage for Mike — and in it, Carrie gushes about her husband's dedication to the sport:

"I'm so proud of you for so many reasons. Specifically tonight I'm proud of you because I know how hard you work at everything you do and how much dedication you have towards hockey and towards this team. And I just think you're the best."

What an emotional night for the Eagles of Death Metal.

On Monday night, U2 performed alongside EODM at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, the band's FIRST performance since the devastating terror attacks that occurred last month. Needless to say, the collaboration was incredibly moving and inspiring.

Lead singer Bono introduced the band with a simple yet sweet tribute, saying:

"They were robbed of their stage three weeks ago and we would like to offer them ours tonight."

Miley Cyrus Forgets The Words To U2's One While Performing On Stage With Bono For World AIDS Day!

Whoops…

As we're sure you're aware, Miley Cyrus is known for being pretty wild on stage!

But on Tuesday night, the singer toned it down when she performed with Bono for a World AIDS Day concert at Carnegie Hall.

Taking part in a star-studded event that celebrated the work of the ONE and (RED) organizations in pushing for more resources to fight AIDS, it seems as though Miley-bird was happy to be there.

In fact, she even told the audience:

"I just turned 23. And I know I will live in an AIDS-free world."

But the pop star might have been a bit too excited, because when she started singing with the U2 frontman and Jessie J, she kind of forgot the words to the rock band's pinnacle charity anthem One!

Bono brought out Jessie to sing the first verse of the song — but when Miley came out to sing the second verse, it was clear that she was a little rusty on the lyrics!
