John Legend Earns EGOT Status!

John Legend, along with composers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, made history over the weekend by earning EGOT status!  The three all won Emmy awards for their work on their “Jesus Christ Superstar” TV special, which means they have now all won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.  Only 15 people in history have ever earned all four awards.  The 39 year old is also the youngest person to ever earn the status and the first African American man.

Rapper Mac Miller died Friday of a drug overdose.  He was 26 years old.  His family released a statement saying, “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends, and fans.  Thank you for your prayers.”  His ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, is reportedly very upset and posted this picture in tribute to him on her Instagram account.

Rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj got into an altercation Friday night at an event at the Plaza Hotel during New York Fashion Week.  Cardi reportedly threw one of her shoes at Nicki, but she missed.  Nicki managed to stay out of it, but one of her security guards is to blame for elbowing Cardi just above her eye, giving her a nice lump.  Cardi took to social media to explain that she was tired of Nicki spreading lies and talking badly about her, especially when it came to her newborn daughter.
