For any performer, making their feature film debut is one of the most exciting times of their lives.  But for Jordin Sparks, that moment is made even more special, and very bittersweet, by the fact that she had a chance to work with one of her heroes, Whitney Houston.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Sparks said that she is nothing but proud of her first film:

“I am super excited…I finally got to see the film and we all knew it was something special when we were filming it, but to finally, to see the finished [product] — I just have this overwhelming sense of pride. Twenty years from now I get to say that my first film was this and it’s incredible I got to work with one of my idols. I got to make new friends and family and it’s just it’s, it’s amazing.”

But one aspect that makes her even more proud was getting to work with the late Houston, who Sparks says set the tone on set every single day:

“There was one thing that she wasn’t… nervous…She was not nervous at all. She was the one who would set the tone for the day and if we were nervous she’d say, ‘You got this… Believe in your gift and your talent.’ That’s the type of person that she was.”

Sparks says that Houston was always there to give, and showed up to give her support even on days where she had nothing to film:

“She was there [on] days when she had no scenes to film and she just wanted to be there to watch us — that was how encouraging she was…I remember when we did ‘Giving Him Something He Can Feel,’ and she was so excited. She came up and she hugged all of us and she sat and she watched it just for the sake of being there and watching it and being so passionate about it.”

Sparks’ first film, and sadly, Whitney Houston’s last, SPARKLE, will open in theaters next Friday.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.
