Watch Ariana Grande and Barbra Streisand Perform a Surprise Duet
I’m having a gay stroke!
During Barbra Streisand's show at the United Center in Chicago, the vocal powerhouse and certified gay legend blew our queer minds when she invited out surprise guest performer Ariana Grande.
Met with a standing ovation and lots of gay screaming, Grande took the stage in a perfect black suit before the two performed “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” while holding hands and laughing. Streisand originated the 1979 hit with duet companion Donna Summer. The song, in ways, was preeminent to Grande’s chart-topper “no tears left to cry.”

MAX & Quinn XCII Talk Pop Hit 'Love Me Less' & Why It's the 'Sleeper Song' of the Summer
If you listen to top 40 radio, you've probably already vibed to MAX's sunny new single "Love Me Less," featuring fellow singer/songwriter Quinn XCII, over the summer, as the song just reached its No. 22 peak on Billboard's Pop Songs airplay chart this week. What you might not have realized while bumping to the bouncy beat is that there's a pretty serious story behind the "vulnerable bop," as MAX has dubbed it.
"My last song, 'Lights Down Low,' I wrote for my wife and I proposed to her with it, and this is sort of the evolution of that, where I had this ex and she was not so happy about our breakup and she threatened to get my British wife deported -- which I knew she didn't really mean, but it was also really intense," MAX tells Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast (listen to the full episode below). "It was the first time we really had a moment where I was like, 'I don't think we're going to recover from this,' because [my wife] was so upset about it. ... We got in the studio, and this 'Love Me Less' idea came about. The right people love you more and not less for your baggage."

An Opera Expert on Why Aretha Franklin Was the Ultimate Diva
In the world of opera, the term “diva” is reserved for a select few. It has nothing to do with outlandish offstage behavior and everything to do with a true gift for communicating in song. It’s the Italian word for “goddess,” but when used for a performer, it’s more like someone touched by the divine for the general betterment of the rest of us.
At first, Aretha Franklin embodied that description literally, as the gospel-singing daughter of the most famous preacher of the day. But then she took it further -- to the blues, R&B, pop and even opera itself.

Missy Elliott's originality showed me it was cool to be a nerdy Black girl
In 1997, I missed the bus to school because I absolutely had to see the entire music video for Missy Elliott’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).” I, of course, had no way of knowing that I was witnessing an artist — a future icon, really — who was going to completely shift how the world viewed music as an art form. At the time, I was enraptured by something I’d never seen before, and I was simply unwilling to pry my eyes away.
The fish-eyed lens. The cartoonish special effects. Costuming that appeared to be plucked from a delightfully fun future. Lyrics that exuded a bold confidence. With her first solo, career-solidifying music video, Missy Elliott became a certified force in an industry where women had to claw for the barest hint of recognition. Every hit record — “Sock It 2 Me,” “Hot Boyz,” “Get Ur Freak On,” “Gossip Folks,” “WTF (Where They From),” the list goes on — made it harder to relegate her to a single box.
To simply call Missy Elliott a rapper, even a devastatingly skilled one, ignores the fact that she is also a razor-sharp lyricist, singer, producer, dancer, and visionary. For over two decades, she’s built a legacy so rock solid that the name Missy Elliott has become synonymous with originality and brilliance.
