Kanye West is known for his unique sense of style. But during one of his pre-New Year’s Eve concerts on Friday in Atlantic City, the rapper was seen sporting outrageous masks that could even be comparable to Lady Gaga’s many interesting headpieces (exhibt A and B)
Dressed in all-white, West placed an interesting looking mask on his face. Personally, I have no idea who he’s trying to be..but it appears he’s trying to look like a Snowmegeddon or the Abominable Snowman.
While also strange, at least the diamond-encrusted headpiece designed by Maison Martin Margiela looks a lot less creepy.
Maybe the weather has just been cruel for Kanye. Personally, I don’t know if I would cry or run away if someone approached me sporting these masks.
Watch the performance here:
After seven sold out shows, Jay-Z closed off the final show of his opening run in style. Playing in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York, Jay even invited his wife Beyonce to join him on stage.
Surprising the crowd during the duo’s hit “03 Bonnie & Clyde”, Jay even let Bey take the stage on her own to perform her hit “Diva”. Soon after, he joined her to sing “Crazy in Love.”
When Beyonce left the stage, Jay had to give his wife a playful slap on the behind to tell her a job well done. ”Of course I had to let BK touch the stage in BK– well BKC now,” he joked.
Proving once again that they are Hip hop’s finest, Bey and Jay have amazed us once again. Seriously, they are JUST WAY TOO COOL.
And below, they sing Forever Young together.
Uh oh! If you ever screw over Green Day’s set time, then you’ll be messing with a very angry Billie Joe Armstrong.
Scheduled to play a 45 minute show at the iHeartRadio festival, their set was cut to 30 minutes to make more room for Rihanna and Usher (who went 25 minutes longer than he was meant to).
Clearly annoyed at the one minute warning on the clock, Armstrong stopped mid-song while playing “Basket Case” to give an angry rant.
“F— this sh–. Gimme a f—ing break. One minute left. One minute f—ing left. You’re going to give me one minute.”
Justin Bieber, who wasn’t even at the show, also got caught in the wrath of Armstrong. “I’m not f—ing Justin Bieber, you mother—-ers. You’ve got to be f—ing joking. I got one minute. One minute left. Now I got nothing left.”
And as he threw his microphone down, the lead singer started to trash his expensive looking guitar and stuck the middle finger out to the crowd.
Yikes! I can see how Armstrong may have overreacted. But to be fair, it wasn’t very considerate for the other artists to take over another musician’s set time.

No Doubt had a great surprise last night during a show in Las Vegas.
Playing to a massive crowd at the iHeartRadio Festival, No Doubt’s frontwoman Gwen Stefani invited fellow singer P!nk! on the stage to sing with the band.
Closing their set with the band’s classic hit ”I’m Just a Girl”, P!nk! came out mid-song and playfully did some push-ups as Stefani greeted her with a peck on the cheek. And as the two singers jumped around the stage belting along to the song’s verses, the crowd just knew that they had witnessed something amazing in person.
With No Doubt’s comeback album about to come out on September 25, this just makes me even more excited.
Proving once again that she has some serious vocal chops, Kelly Clarkson decided to take a shot at covering a song that isn’t really within her genre. But by adding in a little Texas country twang, she definitely made Rihanna’s “We Found Love” sound like her own!
At Virginia Beach, V. A on Tuesday during a tour stop, the singer, (who obviously can’t get the song out of her head like the rest of us!) even decided to dedicate her cover to a fan.
“This is for Christoper Buew, Brewer, Christopher Brewer… I can’t say it right. Oh my goodness, say it five times fast,” says Clarkson, before proceeding to say Brewer’s last name five times. “See? I can’t do it. So I’m gonna sing this song that’s by Rihanna!”
I love Kelly for showing off what she can do by singing these fun little covers. From Lady Gaga to Rihanna, what should she cover next?

Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Kings of Leon and Taylor Swift were among the music stars who took part in two charity concerts on Saturday night for victims of Australia’s deadly wildfires.
Tens of thousands braved heavy rain and lightning to attend the Sound Relief concerts in Sydney and Melbourne, which organizers hope will raise about $5 million Australian ($4.18 million Cdn). Last month’s wildfires in southern Victoria state left at least 210 people dead and destroyed thousands of homes.
Michael Jackson’s comeback is off to a strong start, with the King of Pop’s 50 London concerts selling out hours after tickets became available on Friday.
