Natalie Cole's Family Outraged Over Lack Of Tribute At Grammys
Sunday night's Grammy Awards show was filled with tributes to artists who passed away in the previous year, most notably Lady Gaga's extended medley of David Bowie songs. But now, the family of one star who didn't receive a special tribute is voicing their displeasure.

Singer Natalie Cole was remembered at the Grammys during the In Memoriam segment but her family told Entertainment Tonight that they were very upset that Cole did not receive additional screen time.

"Sadly a FORGETTABLE tribute to Natalie Cole," Cole's sisters, Timolin and Casey, said following the Grammys. "Words cannot ex...

Remembering Natalie Cole: 11 Of Her Most Notable Songs
On December 31, 2015, the music world lost one of its most beloved musicians, Natalie Cole (1950 – 2015). Cole was the daughter of legendary jazz musician Nat King Cole.

Fashion Fails: Emily Osment, Liberty Ross, Ke$ha, More

Emily Osment
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Emily Osment wore this stained glass window dress to the Catching Fire premiere, but lucky for her she wasn't the worst-dressed there. Still, the outfit draws way too much to the pattern and not who is wearing it.

Liberty Ross wore this bizarre outfit to a fashion show. It looks like a throwaway ensemble you see on the catwalk every once in a while. The headpiece is the icing on the cake, just hammering home the absurdity of it...

Worst Dressed Stars At The 2013 Latin Grammy Awards

11/22/2013 8:42am EST
Natalie Cole
The Latin Grammy Awards took place on Thursday night in Las Vegas, and the stars strutted their best (and worst) looks on the red carpet.

Natalie Cole's gown was a beautiful crimson color, but we don't understand the bat wings jutting out from the front of it.

The 63-year-old singer has toned arms and lean legs, but her choice in dress was simply puzzling. She looked like she was channeling some sort of futuristic, space age style.

Check out more bad looks from last night's event...


You gotta love that her style hasn't changed over the years, however...

Natalie Cole Supports Hepatitis Public Health Crusade

Natalie Cole
R&B singer Natalie Cole has thrown her support behind a new public health campaign to raise awareness about the hepatitis C virus.

The This Will Be hit-maker has teamed up with rock legend Gregg Allman to back the American Liver Foundation's Tune In To Hep C, which aims to encourage public conversations about the life-altering disease and urge sufferers to take action and get help. For Cole, the mission is particularly personal - the singer was diagnosed with chronic hepatitis C in 2008.

She says, "One thing is for sure - there's a stigma surrounding hepatitis C because it's associated ...

'Idol' Recap: Matt Gets The Boot & Kris Could Steal The Win From Adam

4/30/2009 8:52am EDT
American Idol
Simon Cowell started the American Idol results show by saying how great everyone was and how wide open the competition is this year. He couldn't be more correct. That's why we saw Adam, the favorite all year, nearly exit the stage while the previously ousted Matt Giraud (who I've been calling the most talented competitor all year) got the cruelest boot.

In fact, there were two favorites in the bottom three this week. Probably the two most likely to win the entire competition had to sweat the longest last night. And at this point, it wasn't that much of surprise with the depth remai...

Overrated & Underrated Pop Duets

10/3/2008 10:11am EDT
Paul McCartney/Stevie Wonder
Sometimes one just ain't enough.

That's a line, okay an amended line, from the rarest of rock treats - the duet. Everyone loves when two pop icons team up for a single. It's just like those rare occasions when two solo wrestlers join forces for a super tag-team.

Just like its brethren in the WWE the results for pop duets are often much less than the sum of their parts. Still, each duet holds a special spot, or two, in the minds of music fans.

So it's easy to say that all duets are overrated isn't it? Well, that would be the case if it weren't for the fact that so many gr...
