Rapper Wiz Khalifa has finally staged his son's second birthday party almost a week after he accused estranged wife Amber Rose of sabotaging his original celebration by keeping their kid away. Khalifa scheduled the bash for little Sebastian last weekend (21Feb15), and even took to Twitter on Saturday morning and wrote, "we bout to party super hard for my young prince."
He returned to the site hours later to share a number of sad images of the cake and presents that had been left untouched after his boy's no-show, adding, "Only thing missing was bash (Sebastian)."
He then took aim at Rose, without mentioning her by name, by lamenting, "ive (sic) never voiced my true unhappiness out of fear of the person I was with and what she would do to make me more unhappy of (if) anyone knew."
He managed to host the pirate-themed party at his home in Los Angeles on Thursday (26Feb15) - and this time Sebastian was the guest of honour, according to TMZ.com. Rose was a not present.
Actress Emma Watson has brushed off rumours suggesting she is dating British royal Prince Harry, urging fans not to believe everything they read. The Harry Potter star, 24, recently set the showbiz world abuzz amid speculation she had embarked on a low-key romance with Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, following her split from boyfriend Matthew Janney in December (14).
However, Watson has since shut down the claims, taking to Twitter.com on Sunday (22Feb15) to address the reports.
She simply wrote, "WORLD Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!"
Prince Harry, 30, has been single since parting ways from his girlfriend of two years, Cressida Bonas, last April (14).
If you're a Disney princess lover, you probably spent all of 2014 singing "Let It Go." While Frozen, and other princess films are great, I personally think The Princess and the Frog is a film that just doesn't get enough love. From Tiana's dedication to the film's music, there are many reasons this movie deserves top ranks when compared to other Disney animated films.
1. Tiana doesn't start out as a little girl who wants to one day be a princess or fall in love.
She has aspirations to open her own restaurant, which stem from the relationship she had with her father before he passed away.
2. But just because she is a hard-worker, that doesn't mean she judged others who had it easy:
Tiana's best friend Lottie was extremely well off because of her father Big Daddy's business, but that never made Tiana bitter or judgemental.
3. Anika Noni Rose (Tiana) was the first actress in 18 years to provide the speaking voice and singing voice for her princess.
Before The Princess and the Frog, the last actress to do both parts was Paige O'Hara as Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Since The Princess and the Frog was released, all future Disney princesses' voices and singing voices have been provided by the same actress (except for Merida in Brave, who does not sing).
4. When we first meet Prince Naveen, he's not a charming prince sent to rescue Tiana.
He's actually a partying womanizer that is about to be cut off because he won't change his ways.
5. Tiana is actually the one who saves Prince Naveen.
But after the whole turning-into-frogs-possibly-forever debacle, you can argue that they both save each other. Tiana teaches Naveen about working for yourself and what it means to love someone other than yourself, while Naveen teaches Tiana that is alright to live a little and forget about work for a while.
6. Mama Odie is one of the best characters we've ever watched in a Disney movie.
This blind voodoo priestess in the bayou helps Prince Naveen and Tiana, not that they realize it at the time, figure out what they need.
7. Tiana isn't all talk about her dreams, you actually witness her busting her butt to achieve them.
Which is big, given this movie is set in the 1920's. What other princess (or future princess, that is) can be seen working at an actual job?
8. The music in this film doesn't rely on being "catchy" or "campy" but instead is a true trial at authenticity.
And it's good at doing just that. We've never wanted to go to New Orleans more than we did after watching this.
9. Tiana and her mother have a very realistic relationship.
Tiana's mother wants her to find her "Prince Charming" and give her some grandchildren, but Tiana has other plans in mind.
10. Lottie is not the typical girl who wants to be a princess and loves pink.
While those both are true, she's also a very good friend to Tiana. She's willing to kiss Prince Naveen, knowing that she can't marry him like she wanted to, because he loves Tiana and she wants them to be happy together.
11. Ray, a firefly, and Evangeline, a star, taught us more about love than any other movie.
"Je t’adore, je t’aime, EvangelineYou’re my queen of the nightSo still, so brightThat someone as beautiful as sheCould love someone like meLove always finds a way, it’s trueAnd I love you, Evangeline"
12. Doctor Facilier, better known as the Shadow Man, is a pretty terrifying villain.
This witch doctor, with "help from the other side" throws a wrench in Prince Naveen's life by turning him into a frog, who then in turn, turns Tiana into a frog. Quite easily one of the most dramatic things to happen to a prince and princess in any Disney animated film.
13. Unlike other leading females in Disney, when approached by a witch/witch doctor/enchantress, Tiana does not give into temptation, even though she's offered her dream.
14. Because they're frogs for most of the movie, Tiana and Naveen's love is based on their personality, rather than physical attraction.
15. Forget about castles, this is the prettiest wedding scene in Disney history:

This Grammys was a huge celebration of music and not just of last year’s, that was pretty evident with the show opening with an AC/DC performance of “Highway to Hell”. Sam Smith took home 4 Grammys , proving that he was the new comer that has come out on top. Kanye also had his first ever Grammy performance and it was very heartfelt. We decided to sum up our feeling from the night’s event using 15 tweets that were just so real.
1. Kanye has to be trolling us, right?

Did you get all that the 90s had to offer? If not then you need to get nostalgic and start binge-watching the best TV shows and movies of that decade. So if you want to look back on the bad fashion, the hot celebrities, the music and more, here are 20 things you need to watch that has it all.
This is definitely one of the most quotable movies of this decade. Watch clueless Cher (Alicia Silverstone) play match maker to multiple people around her.
2. Pulp Fiction
Every Quentin Tarantino fan would say this is a must! This classic follows four storylines including two mob men, a boxer, the wife of a mob man, and a couple of bandits.
3. Jurassic Park
Even in a post-Avatar world, this movie is impressive with its visual effects. If you never watched the original go back and watch Spielberg's take before watching the new reboot.
4. The Sixth Sense
It's been a while, so chances are someone might have spoiled the ending for you already, but trust us and watch it anyways. This scary and suspenseful movie makes it all worth it.
Warner Bros. Television/Giphy
Because of this show, and the beautiful Jennifer Aniston, was the reason so many women were asking for "The Rachel" in their hair salon. Get in late on the craze.
6. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
This show is proof that Will Smith has always been amazing. Alfonso Ribeiro also had people laughing and doing "The Carlton."
7. Boy Meets World
Michael Jacobs Productions/Giphy
We're sure you're already catching the syndication of this show on TV, but we couldn't leave it off our list! Watch Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and those around him grow before your eyes through 7 seasons.
Need a show that understands your dating problems due to being neurotic? Look no further.
9. Dawson's Creek
You can't talk about this decade without acknowledging the show that gave us James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, and Michelle Williams. Can you?
10. Full House
Jeff Franklin Productions/Giphy
To this day people still quote little Michelle saying "You got it dude!" Watch Bob Saget being a single father of three and getting help from his friends.
11. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Get in on the Buffy craze by watching her fight off evil vampires and demons with her friends.
12. Boyz n the Hood
Colombia Pictures Corporation/Giphy
This movie follows a group of childhood friends growing up in the hood in Los Angeles. Other than a gripping story line, this movie offers fashion flashbacks galore.
13. Twin Peaks
This TV show only had two seasons, but people still mention it to this day. Watch FBI agent, Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) try to find out who murdered of Laura Palmer.
Impact Zone Productions/Giphy
Were you a girl growing up and outnumbered by men? Well poor Blossom Russo feels your pain.
15. The Silence of The Lambs
Find out why "put the lotion in the basket" is so damn creepy. This thriller shows Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), an F.B.I. agent seeking help from an incarcerated killer in order to catch a serial killer who skins people.
16. Fight Club
Fox 2000 Pictures/Giphy
Look back on Brad Pitt's beautiful frosted tips with this movie. Edward Norton plays an office worker who isn't getting any sleep. When he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) they end up switching things up by creating a fight club.
Forget about watching another sitcom with a seemingly perfect family. This show had working class people in the forefront and of course hilarious Roseanne Barr cracking jokes.
18. American Pie
This filthy franchise all started with four high school friends making a pact to lose their virginity. Have a fun looking at what Tara Reid was doing before Sharknado.
19. The Blair Witch Project
Thanks to this now we have Paranomal Activity, and many other "found footage" films. This movie shows three film students creating a documentary about a Blair Witch legend.
20. Dumb and Dumber
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are very stupid, but very funny friends that go on a cross-country adventure.

Music veteran Diane Warren has accused Rita Ora of failing to promote their Oscar-nominated song Grateful. The I Don't Want To Miss A Thing hitmaker wrote the track for 2014 movie Beyond the Lights, Ora provided the vocals, and they landed a Best Song nomination ahead of the Academy Awards later this month (Feb15).
However, Warren has now revealed Ora was not her first choice for the project, insisting director Gina Prince-Bythewood picked the singer, and she has accused her of failing to properly promote the project.
Warren tells Huffingtonpost.com, "Gina, the director, wanted Rita to do (the song). Had I known there wouldn't be a lot of support, had I known she would have only tweeted about it once... You know? She sang it great, but it's a little frustrating.
"I have to be really honest, I don't want to be a jerk or anything, but had I known about this lack of support, there are other artists I'm working with that if it had been up to me, I would have gone with. She sang it great! But, come on. How on Earth are you not wanting to (promote it)... I don't get it. Everybody around me, we're all shocked."
Grateful will compete at the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles on 22 February (15).
Pop superstar Prince is planning to follow his unexpected appearance at the Golden Globes with a surprise performance at the Grammy Awards next month (Feb15). Little is known about the Purple Rain star's plans for music's big night, but a source says, "It's going to be a big surprise."

Visage frontman Steve Strange is to undergo an exploratory operation after he was admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties earlier this week (beg01Dec14). The legendary 1980s music star has been battling a series of health issues which have left him "virtually bed-ridden" for six weeks, including trouble breathing and walking any distance without assistance.
Strange, 55, was admitted to Prince of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, Wales this week (begs01Dec14) with a bronchial infection and intestinal blockage. Doctors will operate on him to find the root of his health problems.
A statement from Visage's record label August Day Recordings reads, "For the past few days he has been trying to conduct a normal life in line with the promotion of his classical Visage album, Orchestral, but although those around him gave strict instructions relating to him doing as little as possible, Steve has been determined to push himself but sadly the exertion has taken its toll and he started to suffer a relapse of his ailments which has meant he has had no choice but to seek urgent medical help...
"Close friend Amanda Lloyd who is accompanying Steve in the hospital (says) 'I was with Steve when he was admitted. He was very worried but felt that (an) exploratory operation was the best course of action so we can hopefully get an answer to the series of health issues over the past 6 weeks'."
All of Visage's promotional appearances and gigs have been postponed.
Actor Damian Lewis was honoured by Britain's Prince William during a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London on Wednesday (26Nov14). The Homeland star was given the Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) medal by the royal for his successful acting career across the globe.
Dressed in a smart morning suit and accompanied by his wife Helen McCrory, he was congratulated by the prince at the investiture ceremony.
Speaking after the event, Lewis revealed he was shocked to be honoured, saying, "I was stupefied, I had no idea, so it was a big big surprise... I remember when I heard I was being awarded it, it was a little bit like 'now you've got to prove it'. It was a bit like being asked to be a (school) prefect, now I have to be extremely responsible."
Lewis also gave an insight into his chat with the royal, adding, "He (the prince) said, 'Catherine (Duchess of Cambridge) and I are huge Homeland fans'. He said, 'You appeared again the other night briefly, and we all got very excited,' which is true, but it was also on Sunday night which means he is absolutely up to date with the latest episode and I'm amazed they have time for that."
