| Filed under: Music MinuteMary J. BligeKeith Richards

Short of Marilyn Monroe serenading JFK, this is the best birthday tribute we can remember!

The Rolling Stones performed Saturday in London to commemorate their 50th year in the business — wow, we feel old!

Mary J. Blige was one of many talented performers to help the band celebrate the big five-zero in style!

Ch-ch-check out Mick Jagger and Mary J combining vocal talents in this ah-mazing rendition of Gimme Shelter (above) — an iconic single released two years before the talented R&B artist was even born!

Other special guests included the legendary Jeff Beck and former bandmates Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

This was the Stones' first gig in five years, but they clearly haven't slowed one bit!!

Mary J. Blige Likes Basketball Too — Hits The Lakers Game!

Mary J. Blige had an amazing night at the Lakers game!

Don't believe us? She had 37 points, 116 rebounds, and like four home runs. She missed her penalty kicks though. That's basketball, right?

LOLz!

Nah, none of that happened — but she DID go to the game and watch!

To be honest, we're getting frustrated with all these celebs going to the Lakers games though, because not one of them has brought us back a foam finger yet. No matter how many times we remind them, they always forget.

Maybe someday!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteBeyonceMary J. BligeAmerican Music Awards

Beyoncé & Mary J. Blige will always be close to our hearts, but on this day it was totally someone else's night!!!

Rihanna was the WINNER of the Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist award, and there was definitely not a dry eye among the audience who were all glad to see this lady get what she deserved.

ACCOLADES!!!

Although she wasn't there to collect her statuette, she was absolutely there in our hearts - metaphorically speaking.

We think she was actually in Sweden or something.

Congratulations, Ri-Ri!!!!

Ch-ch-check her out (above)!

And after that, make sure you watch the rest of Friday night's inspiring performances …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Nothing Compares To Prince Joining Mary J. Blige On-Stage At The iHeartRadio Music Festival! Check Out Their Closing Performance HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinutePrinceSin CityMary J. Blige

No one can deny that the iHeartRadio Music Festival didn't have its fair share of surprises this weekend, but we think it's safe to say that Mary J. Blige trumped 'em all during her set Saturday night at the MGM Grand Arena!

The supremely talented singer apparently stopped her band in the middle of her performance to invite none other than the legendary PRINCE to join her on stage!

And believe us! Their powers combined were TRULY something to behold!

Ch-ch-check the pair out as they completely re-work the Sinead O'Connor classic Nothing Compares 2 U, which was originally written by Prince (above)!

And after listening to their interpretation of the track together, we're not sure we'll able to ever hear the original the same way again!

This is literally just TOO INCREDIBLE!

And such a treat!

Thanks for bringing some legitimate MAGIC to the iHeartRadio stage, guys!

And if you ever wanted to record this one together in the studio, we WOULD NOT be opposed!

Just saying! Ha!
