Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCYou can't put Nicki Minaj in a corner, especially not terrorists.  

The rapper recently told a TMZ videographer that she would not cancel any tour dates or performing in different venues in light of Monday night's terror attack at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester, England. 

"We don't operate in fear."  

When the TMZ videographer responded to Nicki by saying "that's a powerful statement," she replied, "I'm a powerful woman."  

She added, "Ariana's my sister. I love her and I love the people of the U.K. and I'm devastated by the news. It's heartbreaking." 

The "Did It On 'Em" artist also expressed that she isn't scared to perform in Manchester, stating, "Of course I'ma perform for my Manchester fans. They deserve it." She then confirmed that she has plans to go to the city in 2018.

The trailer for Nick Broomfield's unauthorized Whitney Houston documentary -- titled Whitney: Can I Be Me -- has finally arrived. 

The visual begins with the late music icon saying in a vintage interview, "You know, [it] probably doesn't matter anyway because they're gonna remember me how they wanna remember me anyway," setting the tone for the rest of the trailer.

More scenes follow of the singer during various moments of her extraordinary career -- including a church performance and media interviews -- while the promo highlights what appears to have been Whitney's struggles with fame and her initial aversion to being packaged as a pop princess. 

The documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York last month and is scheduled to arrive in theaters across the U.K. on June 16. So far, there's no date for a U.S. wide release, although the film is slated to premiere on Showtime sometime in August.

Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCAre Nicki Minaj and Nas really an item? Well, the entertainer finally answered that question about her rumored romance with Nas this Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"He's so dope. He's such a king. He's kinda cute too," Nicki told Ellen.  She also confirmed that they've had "sleepovers" together, with Nicki noting that she goes to Nas' house, not vice versa.  

"I just thought him coming to me was too forward."

However, Nicki denied that she and Nas have been intimate, claiming that she is celibate.  

She also said, "I hate men." 

A photo of the Nicki and Nas cuddling with each another surfaced on Instagram earlier this month, which fueled speculation that the two might be involved romantically.  

Nas reposted Nicki's picture on his own Instagram account as well. 

The duo's friendship began after Nas starred in Nicki's 2012 "Right By My Side" music video.

Kat MorganBrandy is making headlines again, but this time the "Almost Doesn't Count" singer's rumored romance with Sir the Baptist isn't the focal point. 

Instead, fans speculated that the recording artist was pregnant, thanks to an Instagram picture she posted this Monday that shows her onstage in mid-performance with what looks to be a slightly protruding belly. 

However, Brandy's 14-year-old daughter Syrai quickly came to her mom's defense to shut down the rumors, writing, "My mother is not pregnant. I'm not gonna have any more siblings. I like being an only child. Thank you lord." 

Brandy's response to her daughter's cute statement? "@syraidsmith Get off social media at school lil lady." 

Brandy also changed her Instagram profile header to tell the world that isn't expecting, but rather has just packed on a few pounds around her middle.

"People, I'm not pregnant!!!" Bandy writes.  "I got too much work to do. I just like pancakes and chocolate cake... let me live!!!"

James Devaney/WireImageRihanna was honored at Parsons School of Design’s annual benefit Monday night, and she delivered an inspiring speech to the future generation of fashion designers.

“I don’t think you get celebrated enough,” she told the crowd. “You should be celebrated for every aspect of your growth and your growing pains. You should be celebrated for your creativity, for your fearlessness, your persistence and your determination...for being different, for not being given enough credit. For not having to use eye cream.”

She added, "We often tear our youth down when we should be building them up. You are all the next generation. We need to invest in you.”

And Rihanna will be doing just that. She’s launching a design fellowship that will send three Parsons Design students to Port-au-Prince, Haiti this summer to work with local artists on a line of merchandise that will benefit her Clara Lionel Foundation. The foundation helps impoverished communities across the world with education and healthcare, among other things.

Rihanna concluded her speech by telling the students, “I’m here to say that I’m listening, I’m watching, and you’re up next.”

Rihanna has long been a supporter of Parsons students, even wearing their designs on multiple occasions.

Michael GomezMandisa's latest album, Out of the Dark, is finally out everywhere, and on the disc, fans might hear two familiar sounding voices on one of the project's stand-out tracks.

She says, "I am very excited to be back with Toby Mac and Kirk Franklin. We did a song years ago called 'Lose My Soul' on Toby's album and we are back together with a song called 'Bleed the Same,' that was really born out of that week in July where there was a shooting on Tuesday, a shooting on Wednesday and a shooting on Thursday."  

According to Mandisa, the track puts a spotlight on the superficial reasons we judge others and why it's time to put an end to encouraging division among each other and to, instead, stand united. 

She explains, "I got together with my songwriters and I really wanted to write a song about how hate cannot chase out hate. Only love can do that."

"And so, it's a song saying that we all bleed the same on the inside, so let's not put labels on each other on the outside and bring disunity. Let's come together and walk in unity and in love."

You can catch Mandisa in person for several upcoming onstage appearances, including the KLOVE Fan Awards in Nashville, Tennessee on May 28 and the Pulse Downtown Summer Series event in South Bend, Indiana on June 9.

Ron Galella/WireImageIt surely looks like authenticity, right down to the fashion, is at the center of the highly-anticipated Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me

A source recently told TMZ that fashion designer and Walker Wear founder-owner April Walker, who was responsible for designing many of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G.'s iconic clothing during the height of their careers, remade two costumes for the film using patterns from outfits both late rappers wore. 

One of the designs is a yellow Walker Wear vest worn by Tupac in his role as "Birdie" in the 1994 drama Above the Rim.  

The other is a tracksuit that April made for Biggie.   

The source also expressed to the entertainment news site that April has plans to use her designs for a forthcoming museum exhibit. 

All Eyez on Me arrives in theaters June 16.

John Shearer/Getty Images via ABCNicki Minaj continues to prove that she is one of the music industry's most charitable stars.

This Sunday, the rapper disclosed that she's donated money to an entire Indian village. 

Sharing an Instagram picture showing a handful of the villagers themselves, Nicki writes in the caption, "This is the king of thing that makes me feel the most proud. The money I've sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS." 

She continues, "We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don't even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done."  

Earlier this month, the "Black Barbies" artist gave a considerable amount of money to some very lucky fans to help pay off their education expenses. She later announced plans to start an official charity for student loans and tuition payments.

Kat MorganIt appears Brandy might still have an ax to grind with ex-fiancé and former manager, Ryan Press.  

This past weekend, the "Have You Ever" artist dropped some damaging lyrics while onstage at a recent concert," singing, "You stole from me/and you date a broke b****/and you date a broke b****."  

She also added, "Why? That doesn't make any sense!," before singing, "Then you rebounded. Broke b****." Part of the performance was captured on video by a fan. 

Just last month, Brandy posted a now-deleted Instagram message spitefully aimed toward Ryan. In the photo's caption, she wrote, "Only thing wrong in this pic is that cheap a** cubic zirconia... #Diamond... actually I'm a #PearlGirl #DodgedADitch #ImTheBullet #Essence - @brandydaily #Pistol #ThrowbackTuesday."

However, it appears that Brandy is currently enamored with rumored new love Sir the Baptist. Monday, Brandy tweeted a picture of the two sitting side by side and sharing a laugh. In that picture's caption she writes, "You make me feel forever young." 

Brandy and Ryan got engaged in 2012, but called off their engagement in 2014 and decided to remain friends. The Grammy winner has a 14-year-old daughter named Sy'rai, with ex-hubby Robert Smith.
