However, things just didn't work out, and now is

After a six-year hiatus, VH1's Hip Hop Honors returned to celebrate the game changers of the hip hop industry.
But this year's event, aptly dubbed All Hail The Queens, was all about that girl power!
Broadcast live for the first time in its history, Monday night's ceremony paid homage to the female trailblazers who burst into the patriarchal genre to make their voices heard — and were honored with AH-Mazing tribute performances!
Hosted by Eve, the evening began with an inspiring statement from Black Lives Matter founders Darnell Moore and Alicia Garza — and also included a taped appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama honoring the women of hip hop!
Nelly Furtado is back in the game!
It's been a decade since the pop singer dominated the radio with hits like Promiscuous and Maneater — but just like the bird that she is, Nelly could be flying back onto the radar any minute!
On Monday, the 37-year-old surprised fans by releasing a stripped-down acoustic cover of Calvin Harris's Feel So Close!
In a post on Facebook, the singer explained that the popularity of her live version of Calvin's hit, which she performed at a radio station back in 2012, made her want to record an official studio version!
Nelly posted the intimate cover exclusively on Spotify, because "they are very artist friendly and compensate musicians well for their art." (Jay Z and Taylor Swift would disagree with you on that, girl.)
We really hope this means a Furtado comeback is underway. The singer has been working on her album since late 2014 — and with fellow ‘00s radio divas Gwen Stefani and Fergie gearing up for comebacks, the timing for Nelly couldn't be better!
What do U think of Nelly's cover? Ch-ch-check out her live cover (below) and take a listen to the official version HERE!
Oh there's no place like home for the holidays!
And there's no better show this year than Cyndi Lauper's annual Home For The Holidays concert!
The girl who just wants to have fun is putting on another AH-Mazing night of music and laughter, all to support homeless gay, lesbian and transgender youth!
And what a line up Miss Cyndi has this year!
Dayum, that's a good show!
As well as a good cause!
Cyndi's True Colors fund has been working tirelessly on LGBT issues with their Forty to None Project. This marks the third year she's hosted this truly stellar benefit concert!
She recently spoke about how near and dear this issue is to her heart, saying:
If you're into butt drumming, toilet paper made out of one hundred dollar bills, and creative big brand product placement, we have a new musical experience for you!
Nelly's hotttt new vid for Get Like Me is going to be a sure fire hit!
The song is featured on Nelly's new album M.O. which is expected to be released later this year!

Everyone loves a good comeback, and this looks diviiiine!
Flawless songbird Nelly Furtado has plucked at our heartstrings once again with her latest single Bucket List!
The tune's musical visuals are JUST as thoughtful and pretty as Nelly's pleasurable melodies…
Get lost in Mz. Furtado's dream-like world which also features a group of youngsters wandering around NYC (above)!
Bucket List's lyrics seem to explore the idea of having a specific set of goals that one wishes to complete before they die AND ponders about where love fits in to such a list…
It's a thinker!
Another killer, complex song from a fierce lady! LOVES IT!
As if Nelly Furtado could be anything but hot!
Gurl has only one degree and it is super fiercely HAWT!
Nelly went all black and white on us for her music video for Waiting For The Night, and the sexXxy drama she brings with it is perfection.
Plus, the song is beyond!
We aren't waiting for the night to dance like crazy to it.
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
