The singer — who has won Tony Awards and Grammys — came under fire on Friday when she was announced as the performer of a concert set as part of The Donald's swearing-in activities in Washington, D.C.

But the woman, long considered an ally to LGBT fans of hers, reconsidered the announcement after seeing the pushback from those who have supported her for so long!

Holliday wrote a long, heartfelt apology letter that was published this morning in The Wrap, and you can see it in full (below):

James Corden Has An Epic Broadway Riff-Off With Neil Patrick Harris — Causing One Of Them To Split Their Pants!

Not too many can keep up with James Corden in the Broadway department — but if anyone can give him a run for his money, it's fellow Tonys host Neil Patrick Harris.

On Monday, the Series of Unfortunate Events star stopped by the Late Late Show where he bullied the host into facing off against him in an epic show tunes riff-off!

After NPH mocked Corden for winning a Tony for a non-singing role, the British late night host had no choice but to battle the Broadway veteran in a high stakes (and high note) competition!

Backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Corden kicked off singing Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat from Guys and Dolls, to which Harris responded back with Everything's Coming Up Roses from Gypsy.

In between hurling intimidating trash talk at one another, Corden and Harris then belted out tunes from Company, Les Miserables, and a particularly sexy number from Chicago.

But when the time came for the pair to duet on My Shot from Hamilton, Harris' riff-off turned into a RIP off. When they returned from commercial break, the How I Met Your Mother alum confessed:

Reese Witherspoon & Nicole Kidman Channel Their Inner Real Housewives In New Look At HBO's Big Little Lies!

no title

When we first heard about HBO's adaptation of Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies, we were totally intrigued.

A masterful director in Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club); an all-star cast featuring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgård, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, and Adam Scott; and our favorite Tony Awards red carpet correspondent Iain Armitage… what's not to like?!

But if we were piqued before, we're PEAKING now… Because the first full official trailer proves this isn't just a quality HBO dramedy — it's a non-reality version of Real Housewives!

Tickets For Lin-Manuel Miranda's Final Hamilton Performance Are Selling For As Much As $20,000 Apiece… Seriously!

You may have no choice but to throw away your shot after hearing this…

It's no secret that Hamilton is already a Broadway classic after winning 11 of its record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, but the Alexander Hamilton hype train may have just officially gone off the rails.

That's because tickets for Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo, and Leslie Odom, Jr.'s final performance are selling for upwards of $20,000!!!

Seriously — the trio are set to take their final bows this Saturday, and if you had any hope of seeing them in action one last time, you better be willing to fork over some serious cash on StubHub.

But even if you wanted to get the cheapest seat in the entire Richard Rodgers Theater, hopefully you have a spare $2,700 for the regularly priced $129 scraps being scalped on Craigslist!

While we don't blame anyone for wanting to take part in the historic musical… we can't imagine any 3-hour engagement being worth the price of an affordable mid-sized sedan.

How much would U pay to see LMM LIVE onstage??
