A slew of celebrities have come out in support of Kesha after she was denied release from her Sony contract during a court date last week. According to reports, Taylor Swift showed her support for the singer by donating $250,000 to Kesha in order to “help her with any financial needs during this trying time.”
Taylor isn’t the only one showing her sister in music some love. Margaret Cho posted a photo of Fiona Apple showing support for Kesha on Instagram. Sky Ferreira, Snoop Dogg, Miley Cyrus, and more have since reposted.
We wish Kesha the best.
Fans were disappointed during the GRAMMYs earlier this month when The Weeknd took the stage to perform, sans Lauryn Hill, after a photo of the two in rehearsal made its rounds on the internet just a day before the big show.
According to reports, L. Boogie’s lateness is what really caused her to miss the show. A rep from the GRAMMYs stated, “[Hill] showed up during rehearsals, but arrived too late for the performance.” The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences president Neil Portnow says Hill attended dress rehearsal on Sunday morning, but missed performing live with The Weeknd, who Portnow says was ready for her up until the moment he hit the stage.
At least Abel and Lauryn Hill got to perform together during the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon; dreams do come true.
The Walking Dead‘s latest episode takes a huge departure from the comic book series, on which the zombie drama is based. Love is in the air on the hit AMC series, with Rick and Michonne hooking up at the end of last night’s episode before reality strikes.
“The Next World” was set two months after the death of Rick’s former flame Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge), the loss of Carl’s (Chandler Riggs) eye, and the rebuilding of Alexandria as a fierce walker-fighting community. Even Danai Gurira (who plays Michonne) was shocked by the scene, telling Variety, “I had a pretty good inkling something was coming soon between the characters, but when I read it I was still kind of surprised.”
Speaking of The Walking Dead, AMC released a clip of next week’s episode, following the steamy kiss between Rick and Michonne.
The next episode of The Walking Dead airs Sunday, Feb. 28th at 9pm. Will you be tuning in?
Deadpool took the number one spot at the box office for the second week in a row, earning an estimated $55 million after pulling in a massive $152.2 million during its Presidents’ Day weekend debut.

Ferris Bueller is back in Chicago – sort of.
The infamous city is holding a “Ferris Fest” in honor of the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The film was released on June 11th, 1986, and the festival will take place from May 20 to May 22 this summer. There will be a recreation of Ferris’s bedroom and an appearance from some of the film’s stars.
The “Twist and Shout” reenactment scene should be epic.
