It's all coming together for this former Saturday Night Live star!!

Maya Rudolph is officially hosting her own variety show which is set to air in about a month!

ZOMG. We're so thrilled for her!

The Maya Rudolph Show, a 60-minute special that will throw it back to variety hours of years past, will premiere Monday, May 19th at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson, and Sean Hayes will be guests—and Janelle Monáe will sing her little heart out as the premiere's fantabulous musical number!

Lorne Michaels will serve as executive producer of the special, which could also serve as a pilot for an ongoing series!

We seriously hope Maya delivers and the variety hour returns forever! It was such good TV!

Hope you're wearing some sort of helmet, because you're about to get your mind severely blown!

Although Janelle Monae will perform in a private event in El Lay, and M.I.A. will be singing in NYC, they will appear on the same stage together today! Because science, that's why!

Audi is holding a launch party for their new Audi 3, and they sensibly thought, "hey, why not have a party with some musical holograms?" So, not only will Janelle and M.I.A. be beamed in today, they'll also be

Much fab.

CoverGirl’s latest television spot is star-studded and fabulous, but instead of promoting any of their makeup line, they’re promoting something a little different: women empowerment!

Starring Katy Perry, Ellen DeGeneres, P!nk, Queen Latifah, Janelle Monáe, Becky G, and even ice hockey star Natalie Wiebe, their #GirlsCan ad is looking to leave people inspired and encouraged.

With all these stunning ladies sharing their experiences on how they changed "girls can’t" into "girls can", we feel this campaign is one to be remembered.

Especially with how rare a message this is in the beauty industry! As Ellen says, "easy, breezy, and beautiful".

THE HAT IS BACK! BUT THIS TIME IT'S RED!

Every year, the NBA All-Star Weekend is the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the best players in the league! So why not also show a little bit of love to some of the best acts in the music industry as well??

Saturday night, Kenrick Lamar provided a much needed break from the incredibly confusing rules of the skills competitions to perform a rocked out rendition of m.A.A.d city which he followed up with the much more mellow Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe!

Sunday brought out even more stars as Pharrell and his giant red hat kicked off the All-Star Game with a star studded line-up of his own, which included Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Chad Hugo, Diddy, and Snoop Dogg! Even his favorite had made a cameo during the performance!

Then at halftime, Trombone Shorty took center stage with a little help from his friends Doctor John, Gary Clark Jr., Janelle Monáe, and Earth, Wind, & Fire!

Talk about an All-Star lineup of performers!
