no title

Everyone is looking forward to honoring Prince's memory.

On Monday, tickets went on sale for the star-studded tribute concert remembering the late legend, and they sold out immediately.

According to the StarTribune, some fans who logged on right at 10 a.m. — when tickets became available on Ticketmaster — were greeted with this message:

"No tickets but keep trying. Other fans may have reserved and released seats!"

We can't say we're surprised how quickly the October 13 show sold out, considering the lineup includes Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day and the Time, Judith Hill, and Liv Warfield.

On Ticketmaster, prices ranged from $19.99 to $152.50, and already ticket holders are trying to flip their passes on sites like Stubhub and SeatGeek for a pretty steep profit.

The stars will take the stage at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota next month to honor the iconic artist.

Anita Baker Had NO Idea She Was Being Sued! Get Her Side Of The Story HERE!

Filed under: Oops!Legal Matters

anita baker didnt even know she was sued

This is bizarre!

Remember when we reported that Anita Baker had a warrant out for her arrest? Well, she didn’t even know about the entire situation!

The Grammy-winner hired Ray Smith Painting and Decorating in 2009 to do $75,000 worth of work on her home, and she gave them $60,000 up front. They apparently did such a bad job that Miz Baker was out there spackling her own home!

If you can even believe that!

So, when the contractors sued her for the other $15,000, Anita was never even served the papers, which caused her to miss a court date she didn’t even know existed!

Attorney for the contractors, Daniel Gerow, revealed he just wants to get his clients what they deserve:

Mary J. Blige Got To Sing With Her Idol At Surprise 40th Birthday Bash!

Filed under: Love LineBeyonceParty Poppin'Jay ZMary J. Blige


What a sweet surprise! It must have meant so much to her!

Mary J. Blige was treated a surprise 40th birthday party by her husband Martin Kendu Isaacs Tuesday night, and the singer was reportedly so shocked that she was reduced to tears!

During the desert-themed celebration at Skylight West in NYC - with celebrities like Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Gayle King in attendance - Blige's idol, Anita Baker, even made a surprise musical appearance, and the birthday girl even got to join in!

A source explains:

"They brought in palm trees and sand. Mary J. said [that] growing up in the projects she was lost, and owes her life to being inspired by the song 'Caught Up in the Rapture' by Anita Baker. Anita got up to toast her and started to sing the song. Mary J. began crying and joined in."

That sounds like an absolute dream come true!

We can't even imagine how thrilled she must have been to be surrounding by friends with whom to share that experience!

Congratulations, bb! And happy happy to you!
