Solange Knowles’ 2017 Met Gala Style: ‘Sometimes I Get It Right, Sometimes I Get It Wrong’

1 May 2017 9:37 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Solange Knowles‘ wardrobe is just as unique as she is, packed full of super saturated primary colors, bold, architectural silhouettes and avant-garde detailing. Which is why this year’s Met Gala theme — honoring Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo’s signature sculptural, body-warping aesthetic — was practically tailor-made for the risk-taking singer.

So, of course, Knowles is going to bring her cool style to the Metropolitan Museum of Art steps tonight and interpret the theme in her own way. In fact, as she explained recently during an interview at the Reebok Classic Leather event during Coachella, she’s looking to Studio 54 legend »

Purple Reign: How Prince Continued to Dominate Pop Culture 1 Year After His Death

21 April 2017 5:02 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On April 21, 2016, the world suddenly lost Prince Rogers Nelson and, to be honest, we’ve never quite been the same. From the hilarious faces the 57-year-old delivered during the Bet Awards to kicking Kim Kardashian off stage to his uncanny ability to blend social justice and music during pivotal moments like the 2015 Baltimore protests, few superstars remained relevant like Prince. Even one year after his unexpected death due to an accidental opioid drug overdose in his Minnesota home, Prince’s influence still reverberates. Here’s a look back at the year since his death and how his legacy lives on.

April 2016: President Obama, along with the rest of the world, mourned the death of Prince by calling him “a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer,” according to Rolling Stone.

May 2016: Shonda Rhimes used Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Delirious” on two of her hit ABC shows, Grey’s Anatomy »

Thundercat: Making Jazz Fusion Cool Again

5 April 2017 2:12 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

First of all, there’s his instrument. It’s ostensibly a bass, but it’s got six strings, and it’s running through a couple different effects that make it sound like a guitar. Also, Thundercat (né Stephen Bruner) is playing it so fast that he makes the thing sound like a Metallica guitar solo, but instead of thrash metal, he and his band are pumping out a strange mix of extremely adept jazz, funk and R&B, all of which anchor his silky falsetto. (And on one of his recent singles, the equally silky voices of Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. »

Exclusive: ‘The Breaks’ Cast Brings ’90s-Era Hip-Hop to Life on VH1

20 February 2017 8:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Many of the actors on VH1’s new scripted series The Breaks (premiering Monday, Feb. 20) were just kids during the early ’90s era of hip-hop captured in loving detail on the show. Yet, they’re still able to channel the spirit of that moment in the culture’s history because of how far they’ve gone to prepare for their roles.

For Mack Wilds, who also stars on Fox’s racially charged drama Shots Fired, premiering March 22, that meant actually learning how to spin records in order to add to hip-hop producer DeeVee’s skill set. When DeeVee takes part in a DJ battle at NYC’s New Music Seminar on the show, Wilds was prepared to go through the motions.

“I’m the type of guy who, if you put me up against anything that I don’t understand, I’m gonna go try to find out,” says the actor, who also has »
