We were oh so lucky to be able to feature so much UBER talent at our One Night in Los Angeles post-VMA shindig, and one sparkling red carpet star (courtesy of Emilio Pucci!) simply blinded us with her charismatic shine and INSANE vocal ability!
British hit maker Rita Ora slayed some of our favorite tunes from her debut album ORA — out now in the UK — and backstage we grabbed our frosty haired beauty for an intimate kiki about her favorite/most amusing VMA experiences, the recent chart-topping success of her freshman album, AND her immediate future plans which include LOTS of promotion in America!! YAY!!!
Check out our chat with the charming Rita Ora (above)!
Oh and she totally dishes on her first meeting with the venerable Jill Scott… SO MANY HEARTS!!
Academy Award winning actress Queen Latifah has been added to join the cast of Lifetime’s version of the feature film, Steel Magnolias!!!
The made-for-TV adaption of the 1989 film follows the lives and friendships of six women in Louisiana. Other cast members include: Alfre Woodard, Mrs. HuxtablePhylicia Rashad, singer/actress Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye and Phylicia's daughter, Condola Rashad.
Lifetime Networks president and GM Nancy Dubuc said of the ladies:
Matt Bendik's tragic death is officially still a mystery!
An autopsy done today failed to determine how the 31-year old boyfriend of Glee's Becca Tobin died at the Hotel Monaco earlier this week, and it looks like more studies will have to be conducted in order to identify the cause and manner of Matt's death!
Philadelphia's medical examiner's office did confirm Matt's identity, but it looks like the reason he passed is still unclear.
We'll keep you posted as more comes to light about his sad death.
