Stevie Wonder’s All-Star Grammy Tribute
Last night’s Grammy-sponsored Stevie Wonder tribute, “Songs in the Key of Life — An All-Star Salute” included a roster of performers (which included Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Annie Lennox and John Legend). Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran kicked things off with “Fingertips” (1963) and “Master Blaster” (1980); the Band Perry covered 1974 funk jam “You Haven’t Done Nothin'”; and Ariana Grande dueted with her producer Babyface on 1970’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” Wonder himself followed these artists with a short, joyous set featuring songs like “Superstition” and “You Are the Sunshine of My Life.” It was an obvious highlight, but it was far from the only one.

Justin Bieber & Ellen Prank Call a Fan
Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres prank called a fan yesterday. Justin even pulled out a fake British accent for it and it wasn’t even that bad. Get the full story here.
Speaking of Justin, last year, some texts were reportedly leaked from Selena Gomez’s phone, where she was engaged in a pretty heated fight with Justin Bieber. Justin was trying to get Selena back, saying things like, “Baby come on. I love you.” But Selena wasn’t going for it. She was even telling him he needed to go to rehab. So he started sending her pics of his manhood. The first one had the caption, quote, “Come on. Don’t tell me you don’t miss this.” Again, Selena was unimpressed. She told him to stop, and to, quote, “grow the [eff] up.” When these texts were first released, the photos were blacked out. But yesterday, a website posted what it claims are the actual pics. They also reached out to Justin’s manager, who said the texts are fake, and threatened legal action. Get the full story here.
