Bobbi Kristina Brown Dies at 22


Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, died on Sunday, according to her family. She was 22.

Bobbi Kris, as she was affectionately known, was unable to make the miraculous recovery that her family hoped and prayed for after being found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31.

The tragic ending comes more than three years after her mother was found dead in a hotel bathtub the night before the Grammy Awards. Houston, who was often called 'The Voice' for her amazing vocal talent, was 48.

Bobbi Kris, who wanted to follow in her mother's singing footsteps, was never able to launch a career.

But during Houston's music comeback in 2009, Bobbi Kris joined her mother on stage at a Good Morning America concert in Central Park to briefly sing a few words from the 1999 hit "My Love Is Your Love." (see video below and check out all the footage from that day here.)

"Clap your hands," Bobbi Kris softly sang in her raspy voice.

Houston wasted no time backing her up daughter.

"See, I got my baby. Me and Bobby's baby," she sang.

Nick Young and Iggy Azalea engaged on baller's 30th birthday

Now that's fancy!

Nick Young celebrated his 30th birthday by popping the big question to his girlfriend Iggy Azalea on Monday night.

And of course, she said, "Yes."

"Would you marry me," shouted the Los Angeles Lakers guard, who was on one knee and holding an unusually large ring box in a video posted to Twitter by Karen Civil.



The "Fancy" rapper wasted no time saying 'yes' to the baller, who is also known as Swaggy P.

The couple has been dating since November 2013.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, he revealed he had a big surprise for I-g-g-y for her 25th birthday on June 7.

"It's going to be a big surprise," he told PEOPLE on Saturday. "I can't tell you anything. You'll see next week. We're doing everything."

It's not clear where the proposal happened, but they appeared to be celebrating Swaggy P's birthday at what looked like a carnival, according to photos and videos on his Instagram.

Soon, word of the Rihanna sighting began to spread on social media.

"RIHANNA IS IN ESCOS RIGHT NOW NYC MAKE YALL WAY HERE RIGHT NOW," read a post by Instagram user EventBrice, a promoter for the club.

Shortly after, he backed up his claim with two Instagram photos of the "Umbrella" singer, who didn't let the heavy rain keep her from hanging out in the club.

A pair of Rihanna Navy members were so excited that they wrote on Twitter that they were coming from Connecticut just to catch a glimpse of the singer.

Escuelita, also commonly referred to as "Escos," was hosting what was advertised as a "birthday ball" for Jack Mizrahi.

It wasn't Rihanna's first time at a New York City ball. In November, she walked the runway at a Miyake-Mugler ball.

Instagram user misterlouieg posted a video of Rihanna enjoying herself while her song, "Bitch Better Have My Money" played in the club.

He also posted two additional photos, including one with Jack Mizrahi hugging Rihanna as she stuck out her tongue.

I'm sure this birthday surprise was just icing on the cake, cake, cake, cake.

Madonna plants juicy kiss on Drake at Coachella

It was the kiss heard 'round the world.

Madonna planted a juicy kiss on Drake at Sunday night's Coachella Music and Arts Festival, shocking thousands concertgoers in the Southern California desert and everyone else who watched the YouTube livestream.

 

Some were beyond stunned. They were downright disgusted.

"I literally screamed when Madonna kissed drake EWWW," wrote Twitter user Vivissss_.

Another user, jayekman, tweeted, "at least when madonna and britney kissed, it was hot...that was just gross." 




Drake's set of hit songs was briefly paused when the 56-year-old pop legend came on the stage to perform "Human Nature" and "Hung Up."

But Madonna, known for delivering jaw-dropping moments, didn't stop there.

She walked over to Drake, who was sitting in a chair in the middle of the stage, and tilted his head back, leaned over and laid a seven-second tongue kiss on the Canadian rapper.

Drake appeared just as surprised as the fans and immediately wiped his mouth.

"Madonna kissed Drake and Drake is making faces like he stuck his tongue on a 9-volt battery. The memes will be legendary," tweeted user rustymk2.




Madonna celebrated by raising her hand and proclaiming, "I'm Madonna," before walking off the stage.

Drake laughed off the spit-swapping incident saying, "Oh shit. What the fuck just happened?"

One guess is that the "Material Girl" singer was making a fantasy become a reality.

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Madonna said, "The lifelong ambition I still want to fulfill is to go on a dream date with Drake—and only kiss him."
