Rapper Drake has paid tribute to Latin singer Selena Quintanilla nearly 20 years after her death. The Fancy hitmaker took to Instagram.com to post several photos of himself in the recording studio wearing a white shirt with the Mexican-American icon's face airbrushed on it.
In one of the pictures, Drake wrote the caption, "They'll be talkin' 'til I meet Selena," a line from his OVO label rapper King Louie's track Til I Meet Selena.
According to Complex magazine, the tribute shirt was created by artist Darien Bruze as part of his Fallen Angels of R&B collection, which is slated to also include TLC's Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez and Aaliyah.
Quintanilla was murdered on 31 March, 1995 at the age of 23 by the president of her fan club.
It's easy to get swept up with major Hollywood stars this time of year, gazing at the red carpet and thinking of these celebs as superhuman megastars, but even the biggest names around got their starts in less glamorous ways. Before their Oscars and Emmys, these stars had Pop Tarts and Lisa Frank.
1. Ben Affleck
Dig those smooth moves and that hip phone! The two-time Oscar winner starred in this Burger King commercial before becoming the megastar we know today from films like Good Will Hunting and Gone Girl. His next role may be playing Batman, but now we'll always think of him as this bad boy who breaks the rules.
2. Brad Pitt
It may be crazy to see a superstar like Brad Pitt shelling for potato chips, but if you think about it, not much has really changed for the Oscar-winning Fight Club star since this Pringles commercial: he still looks good enough to make our mouths water.
3. Jennifer Lawrence
Since starring in this commercial for MTV's Super Sweet 16, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has taught those boys how to properly carry her around on her throne, where this Oscar-winning actress belongs.
4. Stanley Tucci
We've always loved The Devil Wears Prada's Stanley Tucci, but seeing him young and hunky in this Levi's commercial made us love him even more.
5. Steve Carell
Steve Carell may have received his first Oscar nomination for his dramatic role in Foxcatcher, but this commercial shows that he's at his best when he's being funny and lovable.
6. Leonardo DiCaprio
We're like 97% sure we'd take our pants off immediately if Leo came up to us now and told us to "keep it poppin" or to "save some for Daddy." The 5-time Academy Award nominee is underrated even when it comes to his commercials.
7. Haley Joel Osment
We're just gonna throw this out there: The Sixth Sense could have been a much better movie if they'd stuck to the original line, "I see snack dragons." Just saying. Also, not even a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle would eat a pizza that looks that gross, Kraft.
8. Naomi Watts
Young Naomi Watts, the two-time Academy Award nominee you know from films like Birdman and Mulholland Drive, was once a teenager with a thick Australian accent. Like most of us, the near-perfect actress worried about her skin, her figure, and "that one" problem we don't talk about.
9. Bruce Willis and Sharon Stone
"You sound like a commercial." "You buyin' it?" This is the greatest moment of either of their careers. Just kidding, Sharon Stone has gone on to many other performances that are just as good, if not better.
10. Mila Kunis
So, we guess we can thank Mila Kunis for helping make Lisa Frank such a thing in the 90s. It's hard to believe that the star was only two years away from her breakout role on That '70s Show.
11. Elijah Wood:
We've always had a lot of love for Elijah Wood's facial expressions. From Lord of the Rings to Wilfred, his face is sometimes the only thing that makes his performances entertaining. This commercial might just be his shining moment.
12. Kristen Stewart
We love how sassy Kristen Stewart is in this Porsche commercial -- that head nod and "duh" look on her face, as if she would lie about missing her bus, Dad. But secretly, she's all *Live Fast, Die Hard, Bad Girls, Do It Well* #YOLO. Performance of her career, honestly.
13. Meg Ryan
We would personally rather watch a never-ending loop of Meg Ryan's face appearing over the Burger King logo than watch Sleepless in Seattle.
14. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
How many times have we fantasized about the chance to be at Joseph Gordon Levitt's house with him making us breakfast in the morning? Countless. But we never imagined it could be as adorable and delicious as this 1991 Pop Tarts commercial makes it seem.
15. Tobey Maguire
Yo, Spider-Man is having an uncomfortable amount of fun in the bathroom.
16. Corey Feldman
This adorable McDonalds commercial from 1975 may have been heartwarming back then, but 40 years later, it just reminds us how much The Goonies star hasn't aged since he was 4.
17. Demi Moore
We're not sure if the Ghost star was trying to sell Diet Coke by convincing us we might fall in love, or if she was trying to warn us of the dangers and health problems that could arise from drinking it, but we still like it.
18. Keanu Reeves:
Eating cereal has seriously never looked more fun than it does in this commercial. We would love to eat Kelloggs Corn Flakes with Keanu, Matrix style.
19. Stephen Colbert
This ad seems like a news report, and we can totally see a lot of similarities between this FirsTier Bank commercial and The Colbert Report.
20. Matt LeBlanc
Okay, the best things might come to those who wait, but does the Friends star now have to run back up to the roof, or is he just gonna waste that whole bottle of ketchup just to look cool eating one hot dog? Joey. Doesn't. Waste. Food.
21. Courteney Cox
Fun fact: the Friends star was the first person to ever say "period" (referring to menstruation, not punctuation) on TV. She then broke down more boundaries by starring in terribly-named-but-not-actually-terrible TV shows, like Cougar Town.
22. Elisabeth Moss
Are we the only ones watching this commercial as if we're watching Pegy pitch an ad campaign on Mad Men? We can't be.
23. Sarah Michelle Gellar
This 4-year-old Sarah Michelle Gellar just slayed Burger King's competition faster than you could say "Buffy." Un-be-liev-able!
24. Bryan Cranston
Fans were amazed with how Bryan Cranston transformed from the lovable Hal on Malcolm in the Middle into the meth kingpin Heisenberg on Breaking Bad, but the truly incredible transformation of his career happened way earlier. The way he instantly goes from being a skunk to a human is absolutely astonishing.
25. Aaron Paul
This commercial seems like it could actually just be Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman waiting to eat his breakfast before heading off to Chemistry with Mr. White, doesn't it? Aaron Paul's gotta have his Pops, bitch!
26. Megan Mullally and John Goodman
We love Karen Walker enough to be able to recognize that incredible voice anywhere, even if it's some place strange, like a McDonalds commercial. While Karen would certainly never actually sell Egg McMuffins, we're pretty sure that Roseanne star John Goodman totally would.
27. Seth Green
We don't mean to diminish the abilities of our favorite werewolf from Buffy the Vampire Slayer or our favorite dimwitted cartoon son from Family Guy, but this is definitely Seth Green's brightest moment. That hair, the accent. He totally nails the 90s goon role with lines like, "Consequently, we can hit on 'em," and "Definitely - NOT!"
28. Tony Hale
Tony Hale won our hearts playing Buster on Arrested Development (and an Emmy playing Gary on Veep), and this commercial proves that he's made a career out of his hilarious concern regarding women's toiletries. We wonder if Gary's Leviathan on Veep has Herbal Essences.
29. Charlie Day
This quirky commercial for Cascade dishwasher detergent looks like Charlie Day just stepped out of an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Graduating and heading straight into retirement also seems like a total Charlie Kelly scheme, doesn't it?
30. Jane Lynch
Okay, the only thing we love more than Frosted Flakes and Tony the Tiger is this commercial with Glee star Jane Lynch camping out everyday trying to sneak a peak at the elusive mascot himself.
Sam Smith was the toast of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (08Feb15), walking away with four of the six honors he was nominated for, including the coveted Record of the Year.
The British soul sensation kicked off his celebrations early after claiming the very first award of the televised show for Best New Artist. He soon followed it up with the Best Pop Vocal Album for In The Lonely Hour, and was back onstage towards the end of the Los Angeles ceremony to wrap up his big night with wins for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Stay With Me.
Taking to the stage for the fourth time, Smith poked fun at the ex-boyfriend who inspired the album, saying, "This is the best night of my life. I wanna thank the man who this record is about... Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys!"
Fellow six-time nominees Beyonce and Pharrell Williams each went home as triple winners, while Beck landed Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for Morning Phase - and almost had Kanye West repeat his infamous stage invasion at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he interrupted Taylor Swift to defend his pal Beyonce's honor. This time, the rapper approached Beck as he collected the Album of the Year accolade, which Beyonce was also nominated for, and pretended to head towards the mic, before laughing and returning to his seat in the front row - much to everyone's amusement.
AC/DC got the Grammy Awards off to a rocking start with a hits medley, while Madonna dazzled the Staples Center audience in a red and black matador costume to sing her new release Living For Love, and Rihanna, Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney staged the first ever performance of their new collaboration, FourFiveSeconds.
Other performance highlights at the event, hosted by LL Cool J, came from Ed Sheeran and Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne; Katy Perry, who honored victims of domestic violence with a powerful rendition of By The Grace of God; Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige's soulful collaboration on Stay With Me, and Pharrell Williams, who gave his Happy tune a gospel makeover, complete with Hans Zimmer on guitar and Lang Lang on piano.

Priscilla Presley and her daughter Lisa Marie joined thousands of Elvis Presley fans from around the world at The King's Memphis, Tennessee home on Thursday (08Jan15) to celebrate what would have been the late singer's 80th birthday. Devotees gathered at Graceland in sub-freezing temperatures and sang Happy Birthday to Elvis after his ex-wife and daughter led a cake-cutting ceremony.
A full day of festivities is planned at the Memphis estate, where The King died in 1977, aged 42, including a memorabilia auction planned for Thursday evening.
Among the items expected to fetch a high price is Presley's copy of his first record.
Michael Jackson has been named Forbes magazine's highest-earning dead celebrity for the second year in a row.
Publication researchers claim projects linked directly to the King of Pop pulled in $140 million (£87.5 million) over the last 11 months, in part due to his second posthumous album release, Xscape. His ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley's father Elvis Presley comes in at two on the list with an estimated $55 million (£34.4 million) in earnings, and Charles Schulz, the man behind the Peanuts cartoons, is third. Elizabeth Taylor, who kept Jackson off the top in 2012, is fourth on the new poll, while reggae legend Bob Marley rounds out the top five.
Elvis Presley's actress granddaughter Riley Keough has appealed to fans to donate to her fundraising campaign to help her build a school in poverty-stricken Nepal. The Magic Mike star has teamed up with officials at youth empowerment organisation buildOn to provide kids in one community in the South Asian country access to education.
However, she needs the support of generous fans to help her reach her goal of $30,000 (£17,647), with just $5,975 (£3,515) raised as WENN went to press.
On her page at act.buildon.org, Keough writes, "Help me build a primary school in Nepal through buildOn by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause and help spread literacy...! Thanks so much for your generosity!"
Keough's actress pal Jaime King has given her backing to the charity campaign by sharing a link to the fundraiser on her Twitter.com page and writing, "Please help my dear (friend) Riley Keough raise 30k to build a school in Nepal with BuildOn."
The 25 year old is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and her ex-husband Danny Keough.
Elvis Presley's ex-wife Priscilla has pleaded with the superstar's fans to "please calm down" after reports suggested two jets previously owned by the King were set to be removed from the grounds of his Graceland home. Estate officials at the Memphis, Tennessee mansion were recently said to have asked the current owners of the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II to find a new home for the planes as they were exercising their option to end a 30-year agreement to keep them at the Graceland tourist attraction.
The news sparked outrage among some devotees, who complained about the removal online, but now Priscilla Presley has spoken out about the situation, insisting they are still trying to work out a deal with owners at OKC Partnership in Memphis to keep the jets at Graceland.
In a post on her Facebook.com page, Priscilla writes, "please calm down, we're in the midst of negotiations."
Bosses at Elvis Presley Enterprises, who operate the venue, installed the planes at Graceland in the mid-1980s.
The Hound Dog II was previously owned by Hustler magazine boss Larry Flynt.
Graceland officials have asked the current owner of Elvis Presley's planes to remove them from the grounds of his home in Memphis, Tennessee. The Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II will no longer be among the attractions at the Graceland estate from April, 2015.
Bosses at Elvis Presley Enterprises, who operate the Graceland tourist attraction, have written to the planes' owners at OKC Partnership in Memphis, revealing they are exercising their option to end a 30-year agreement to house the jets that the King once owned.
The two planes have been a tourist attraction since the mid-1980s.
The Hound Dog II was previously owned by Hustler magazine boss Larry Flynt.
La Bamba star Lou Diamond Phillips is to make his Australian stage debut in the royal role that helped launch his theatre career almost 20 years ago. The actor will replace Jason Scott Lee in the Melbourne production of The King & I.
A torn calf muscle has forced Lee to withdraw from the show.
Reports suggest Phillips flew in to start rehearsals on Monday (30Jun14), and he'll hit the stage as the King of Siam, opposite Lisa McCune, on 10 July (14).
Phillips made his Broadway debut as The King in 1996, opposite Donna Murphy. Phillips played the role for more than 550 performances and won a Theatre World Award. He was also nominated for both a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award.
The actor cannot wait to hit the stage when the show opens, stating, "I am honoured to once again inhabit the role of The King... I have great passion and respect for the role and am especially excited to bring my interpretation to a new continent."
The news comes a day after it was announced Japanese actor Ken Watanabe would be making his Broadway debut in a revival of the Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein musical about the real-life relationship between the King of Siam and a British schoolteacher, who he enlists to tutor his wives and children.
Miranda Lambert has found an unlikely fan in Elvis Presley's ex-wife Priscilla. The socialite and actress' high-profile marriage to the King served as inspiration for Lambert's new tune Priscilla, and the former Mrs. Presley has taken to Instagram to voice her approval.
Presley uploaded a photo of herself and daughter Lisa Marie Presley at a computer, and wrote, "@LisaPresley and I are listening to your song Priscilla. Love it! Best of luck with your new album."
Lambert didn't exactly need a lot of luck - she rocketed to the top of the U.S. album charts on Wednesday (11Jun14).
