Ciara and Russell Wilson

This is just too sweet!

Ciara and Russell Wilson continued to prove they are one of the cutest couples in the game over the weekend, when the Seahawks quarterback surprised the R&B star with a star-studded surprise party for her 30th birthday.

On Saturday night, the Body Party singer got glam for a "movie premiere" and headed to the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, where Russell was waiting for her dressed as Batman in front of the actual Batmobile from the flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

A source from the party said CiCi was provided a Catwoman suit and a mask to change into before being whisked away to the Batman exhibit where 100 guests — including her 17-month-old son Future Zahir dressed as Superman — were waiting.


According to the source, the attendees — you know, Serena Williams, Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé, and Lily Collins, just to name a few — shouted "surprise!" as the performer arrived:

"Ciara was overwhelmed with emotion and began to cry tears of joy."

Walking in to Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday, Ciara was also greeted with b-day messages from other famous friends who couldn't make it to the event, like Missy Elliot, Jennifer Hudson, Joe Jonas, Ludacris and Michael Strahan.

Jennifer Hudson Opens Up About Her Family's Senseless Murders

| Filed under: Jennifer HudsonSad SadFamily

Jennifer Hudson is one strong woman.

While she often chooses to stay mum on her family's violent murders (Hud's mother, brother, and nephew were all ruthlessly killed by her sister's ex-husband), the singer recently spoke out on the tragic event.

Now that the mom of one is starring in a Broadway production of The Color Purple, she's finding it easier to express feelings on her late family. In the Color Purple, Hudson's character loses her daughter to a senseless act of violence which obviously is something she can relate to.

The actress elaborated:

"There's a scene where we're all holding up boards with photos of our slain children on them. I turned around, and it's a sea of real women as extras holding pictures of children they actually lost. I'm a character holding a picture of a little girl, but in real life I have the same story."

So tragic. At least the production seems to be cathartic.

Not only has work helped the Chicago native, but so has motherhood and marriage. Jen revealed:

In Honor Of American Idol's Cancellation — Take A Look Back At The Show's 10 Worst Auditions Of All Time!

no title

It's the end of an era.

Despite being the No. 1 television show in the country for eight years in a row, FOX made the huge announcement on Monday that American Idol would be ending after its 15th season in 2016.

The reality singing competition has been going downhill since 2012, but this lousy season was the final nail in the show's coffin.

Even though Nicki Minaj and Simon Cowell were the only good judges AI ever had, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick, Jr. will be returning along with Ryan Seacrest one last time.

If it is broke, don't fix it!

While season 14 will come to an end this week with a win from either Jax, Nick Fradiani, or Clark Beckham (hopefully), we still got 13 years of entertaining television out of the show.

So how should we remember the cultural phenomenon??

The best performances ever? The most successful winners?
