Ricki wrote:

"The world didn't understand this man, but I did. He succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder. For anyone who has ever lost a family member or friend to mental illness, my heart goes out to you. I am a greater person for having known him and spent the past 6 and a half years of my life with him. He was a man of love and what mends my broken heart today is knowing that he is finally at peace and his spirit is free."

Adele Pays Tribute To George Michael At The… by videosuploaded

Adele is nothing if not perfection. And sometimes that means being a fucking perfectionist.

The Hello singer paid tribute to George Michael on the 2017 Grammys stage with a performance of Fastlove, turning the upbeat track into a dirge.

But the sad, slow version didn't get off to the best start. So Adele said FUCK IT — literally, she totally swore on live TV — and stopped the song to go again.

Anna Nicole Smith's Mother Says She Tried To Warn Her Daughter Of Danger Before Her Untimely Death

| Filed under: Anna Nicole SmithR.I.P.

Anna Nicole Smith's mother speaks of her death.

It's hard to believe it's been exactly ten years since Anna Nicole Smith's untimely death.

Now, her mother Virgie Arthur has spoken out about how she tried to warn her daughter, whom she still calls by her birth name Vickie Lynn, that she was in danger.

Speaking with the Daily Mail.com, she said:

"I told Vickie Lynn, 'Something has happened to Danny and you should be very careful about yourself.'"

She also addressed the very tragic death of grandson Daniel Wayne Smith, who was only 20 when he passed, saying:

"It doesn't seem right that a 20-year-old would die. Danny did not do drugs but they found enough drugs in him to kill ten people. So how does that happen? If he had done drugs, you would see that on TV, it would be some news especially about her child. But you never saw that."

Daniel died from a drug overdose in 2006, and less than five months later in February 2007 his mother met a similar fate by overdosing on prescription pills.

Virgie admitted she still feels the pain of both deaths even after all this time:
