Kesha Has A Great Little Story About Breaking Into Prince's House

(0) Comments | Posted April 21, 2016 | 1:47 PM

It's hard to say exactly how many artists Prince influenced in his 57 years, but we do know he had a run in with Kesha that only further proved how just how cool he was. 

It's a story that Kesha has been telling since 2009, about the time she says she broke into Prince's house to give him her demo. 

"It was so easy," she told "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon when she stopped by in July 2014. "I cruised up in my dead grandpa's car, and I get out and there's a gardener in the front yard so I was like, 'Here's five dollars and don't make a thing about it, I'm just going to slide right under this gate,' and he just laughed and thought it was funny and that I was charming."

Kesha explained that after she crawled under the fence, she discovered the door was open and unlocked, "which was basically an invitation, so I walked in and everything was purple velvet," she said. "I was very pleased that my fantasy had come true and that there was, in fact, purple velvet everywhere."

"I walk into the elevator, and there is Prince music playing! And then I go up in the elevator and I come out, and I'm on the phone with my mom saying, 'I think I may get arrested,' and then I walk out, and there's Prince playing the guitar, with a beanie on, and I almost pooped my pants," she continued. 

When she came face to face with Prince himself, she said, "He just kind of looked at me funny. He gave me a look like, 'Who the hell are you?' and I waved around my CD. I put it on the table, and then I ran away."

Kesha told Fallon she had yet to hear back from Prince about her demo. And sadly, with the news of his death on Thursday, she never...

(0) Comments | Posted April 21, 2016 | 11:06 AM

Get ready to swoon, because HuffPost can exclusively reveal that Shawn Mendes will perform at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

The 17-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter built a fan base singing songs on Vine and eventually landed a record deal. Even if you're unfamiliar with him, we're betting you've heard his song "Stiches," which was pretty much everywhere last year. Mendes will make time for the Billboard Awards, hosted by Ludacris and Ciara, after he finishes the European leg of his world tour. 

In addition to Mendes, the Go-Go's will perform and celebrate the 35th anniversary of their hit "We Got the Beat," while Joe Jonas' DNCE are also scheduled to take the stage at this year's awards.

(0) Comments | Posted April 15, 2016 | 2:31 PM

"The Birth of a Nation" got rave reviews when it premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, it set records when Fox Searchlight’s studio paid $17.5 million for its distribution rights. Now, we have our first look at what all the buzz what as about.
