Be careful what you wish for…

As we pretty much already suspected, it sounds like Ariana Grande is paving her way back to Broadway now that she's made her mark on the music industry.

That's because while promoting Hairspray Live! at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday, Penny Pingleton herself flat out said participating in the NBC musical was "way much more fun" than her pop star career!

In fact, the 23-year-old singer — who got her start in Jason Robert Brown's 13 on Broadway before moving over to Nickelodeon — actually wants her role in the live TV musical to be understated, saying:

How does this keep happening?!

Hollywood is the place where dreams come true, and Adam Sandler has proved that theory yet again by landing Jennifer Hudson as yet ANOTHER incredibly hot love interest in his next flick!

Sandy Wexler is the third flick in the SNL alum's Netflix deal and will follow the funnyman's character of a '90s talent manager who falls in love with an aspiring singer (Hudson) he finds at an amusement park!

While we're extremely happy to see Hudson doing a bit of comedy, we STILL can't believe all the incredibly hot women Adam has cast opposite himself in his movies over the years — Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, and even Salma Hayek. WOWZA!

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.

Here it is, the moment we've been waiting for: the BET Awards tribute to Prince.

It's up to Sheila E., Janelle Monae, Stevie Wonder, and The Roots to show up and prove themselves after BET threw major shade at Madonna's tribute at the Billboard Music Awards.

So is this one bigger and better?

Well, it's certainly bigger, as it was split up into multiple performances throughout the night. And it all started (above) with the Legendary Roots Crew, along with Erykah Badu and Bilal.

Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker… Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.

Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder — who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute — for a performance of Take Me With U.

It was just OK… but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.

Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!
