'Friday' star Rebecca Black says going viral sucked. 9 years later, she's back.

Remember 'Friday,' the internet-propelled pop hit everyone loved to mock in 2011? Yeah. Rebecca Black became a star overnight, and she says it sucked. Oh, and: She's back, and she's not 13 anymore. "I'm trying to remind myself more and more that every day is a new opportunity to shift your reality and lift your spirit," she wrote. "You are not defined by any one choice or thing. Time heals and nothing is finite. It's a process that's never too late to begin." pic.twitter.com/lcua4H076...

Lil Nas X shuts down homophobic rapper with one simple tweet

It’s 2020 and homophobia is so… banal. And that’s what makes Lil Nas X’s entirely unbothered response to a hater so satisfying. Coming off a showstopping Grammy performance of “Old Town Road” where he also took home two statues and was arguably the night’s best dressed in custom head-to-toe pink Versace leather, not everybody was thrilled to see the young, out star shine.

Nipsey Hussle 2020 Grammys Tribute Brings Together Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, YG, DJ Khaled, John Legend & Kirk Franklin

Given that the Grammys takes place in Nipsey Hussle’s turf, Los Angeles, it should have been no surprise that a slot was carved out to pay tribute to the late West Coast rapper. Meek Mill, who seemingly has recovered from his near altercation with Nicki Minaj’s husband, opened up the tribute with a heartfelt verse. John Legend banged on the ivory keys and DJ Khaled hollered like he was MCing the baddest party in heaven. Nipsey’s presence, as expected, played out on screen and through a recording...

While 2019 definitely belonged to Lil Nas X, his Grammys debut turned out to be a family affair as he opted to make it a Lil Nas X & Friends moment.
