Beyoncé Makes Temperatures Rise in Skintight Red Dress
She slays all day.  Beyoncé always knows how to bring the heat. Whether she's walking a runway, showing off her fierce street-style or on-stage. Luckily, on occasion she chooses to treat fans to some candid photos of her killing the fashion game. On Friday, she dropped some pics of her in a stunning red glittery ensemble and the world is not worthy.  Of course the singer chose to not caption the photos, because they speak for themselves. One post shows her posing in the form fitting ensemble with glasses to match. Not sure if she can see out of the bedazzled frames, but who needs 2020 vision when you look that fierce.  Followers also got treated to her gorgeous makeup and hair pics as...

The Second Latin Explosion: How ‘Despacito’ Ushered in a New Generation of Stars

The Second Latin Explosion: How ‘Despacito’ Ushered in a New Generation of Stars
Music is an ever-evolving art, and for the Latin Recording Academy, that’s meant riding multiple waves of attention.

The most recent arrived with the stratospheric success of “Despacito,” which kicked off a second Latin Explosion with full force in 2017. The Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee hit, later featuring verses by Justin Bieber, made Latin music a hot commodity once again, with the popularity of social media and streaming platforms only amplifying its presence.

“It was all a snowball effect that was never really in sight,” says Fonsi, a five-time Latin Grammy winner — four of those awards for “Despacito.” “It was just crazy — crossing over without me having to sing in English, and Justin Bieber’s addition to the equation four months later for the remix.”

What Emilio Estefan calls the “reverse crossover” was in full effect. The success of the song inspired collaborations with Anglo artists looking to sing in Spanish.

Elton John “Disappointed” By ‘The Lion King’ Remake: “They Messed The Music Up”
Elton John, who won an Oscar for his music on the original Lion King, is not a fan of Disney’s remake, calling it a “disappointment”.

In an interview this week with GQ magazine, the pop icon lamented that the studio had “messed the music up” in the latest version, which was released earlier this year.

John said, “Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact. The magic and joy were lost. The soundtrack hasn’t had nearly the same impact in the charts that it had 25 years ago, when it was the bestselling album of the year. The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly.”

The Brit musician composed music for the original 1994 animated classic, including the feted song Can You Feel The Love Tonight. He also composed music for the film’s hit stage adaptation.

Elton John Calls ‘Lion King’ Remake a ‘Huge Disappointment’
Elton John isn’t feeling the love for Disney’s latest live-action remake.

In an interview with GQ U.K., the legendary musician criticized Disney’s remake of “The Lion King,” citing the film’s music as a “huge disappointment.”

“The new version of The Lion King was a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up. Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact,” John said. “The magic and joy were lost.”

John also highlighted the soundtrack’s commercial performance, arguing that the franchise’s original music debuted to a much stronger reception in 1994.

“The soundtrack hasn’t had nearly the same impact in the charts that it had 25 years ago, when it was the bestselling album of the year. The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly, despite the massive box-office success,

Elton John came down hard on Disney’s remake of “The Lion King” from earlier this year, calling the film a “huge disappointment” and saying that the creative team specifically “messed the music up” that he wrote for the original animated film.

Elton John Slams Disney’s Remake of The Lion King: 'They Messed the Music Up'

Disney’s remake of The Lion King may have made a boatload of money, earning over $1 billion globally since its release in July, but there’s one person who wasn’t a fan: Elton John.

Bebe Rexha Drops Empowering Music Video From ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ (Watch)
Bebe Rexha has dropped a video for her song “You Can’t Stop the Girl,” the female empowerment theme from Disney’s forthcoming “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.”

Directed by Sophie Muller, the music video features scenes of Rexha reimagined as Maleficent and wandering through the film’s fantasy landscape, leading a marathon of women and snippets of the film. The variety of running women highlight body positivity, people with physical disabilities and racial diversity. Over the years Muller has directed videos for Beyoncé, Shakira, the Killers and No Doubt.

The wicked Disney sequel begins several years after the 2014 “Maleficent,” which retold the classic “Sleeping Beauty” from the perspective of the villain. The film follows the strained relationship between Princess Aurora (played by Elle FanningThe Neon Demon”) and Maleficent (played by Angelina Jolie) amidst Aurora’s upcoming wedding and emerging alliances in the magical realm.

Elton John Blasts The Lion King Remake, Calls It A Huge Disappointment

Touting best-in-class visual effects and a voice cast for the ages (Donald Glover! Beyoncé! James Earl Jones!), The Lion King was undoubtedly one of the great summer blockbusters of 2019.

And it certainly turned in an impressive performance at the worldwide box office, raking in $1.62 billion for Disney – a company that was still riding high after the runaway success of Avengers: Endgame.

That’s not to say The Lion King didn’t have its fair share of detractors, with some critics even going so far as to suggest that transitioning Disney’s Hamlet parable to the realm of live-action was wholly unnecessary, as it robbed the film of its heart and soul. Elton John certainly thinks so, too, after telling GQ that The Lion King of 2019 left him “hugely disappointed,” largely due to the movie’s handling of the original soundtrack.

Elton John Bashes ‘The Lion King’ Remake Over Bad Music: ‘The Joy Was Lost’
Jon Favreau’s “The Lion King” remake dominated the summer box office with $542 million in the U.S. and over $1.6 billion worldwide, but one person who was not happy with the release was Elton John. The musician created the original songs with Tim Rice for Disney’s 1994 “The Lion King,” many of which were used again in Favreau’s remake. John and Rice’s work on “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” won the Oscar for Best Original Song, but John was not feeling the love for the new “Lion King.”

“The new version of The Lion King was a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up,” John recently told British GQ while promoting the release of his new memoir. “Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact.

Alanis Morissette’s breakthrough album, Jagged Little Pill, is taking Broadway for the first time in November — and in the form of a live musical adaptation.

In a new teaser video, cast members Celia Rose Gooding and Antonio Cipriano give Morissette’s 1996 hit, “Head Over Feet” a tender revamp. Shot in the same intimate style as her original music video, the two transform Morissette’s swooning monologue into a dynamic interplay between two young souls, teetering precariously on the edge of falling in love.

Trump Claims Oprah “Loved Me Until I Decided To Run For Office”
After singling out Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and “little” Bruce Springsteen, President Trump has directed his anger at Oprah Winfrey.

Video posted online Friday, showed Trump criticizing the media mogul, during a campaign rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

He began by bashing former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Last year Winfrey back the Democrat, who ultimately lost to Republican Brian Kemp.

“Our friend Brian Kemp, he did a number on Stacey Abrams,” Trump told the crowd. “She’s still saying, ‘What happened? What happened?'”

“She had Oprah,” Trump quipped, adding that even with help from the TV titan and former President Barack Obama, Abrams still lost.

“You know, Oprah used to be a very good friend of mine. She used to go to Mar-a-Lago,” he added.

Trump told supporters Winfrey was a frequent guest at his Florida golf course and enjoyed the food there.

“She loved the key lime pie,” he said to laughter.

This Week In Music: Trump Takes On Beyonce, Bruce And Prince, While Hong Kong Gets Its Own Song
Music evokes many emotions in people, and never was that more evident than in this week’s music news.

In Hong Kong, the street protests have adopted a new anthem to fuel passions, while on the domestic front, President Donald Trump managed to get into a dust-up with the Prince estate. He also found time to put down “little” Bruce Springsteen and let the world know that he didn’t need any music superstars to appear at his rallies in order to draw a crowd (perhaps disappointing Lee Greenwood and Toby Keith).

This week in music:

The Prince And The President: Prince’s estate was miffed at President Donald Trump this week for playing Purple Rain at his Minneapolis rally. Trump’s attorneys previously promised that they would not use Prince’s music in connection with the campaign activities. It was unlikely that Trump had anything to do with the music selection at the rally,
