Michael Jackson Hologram, Jennifer Lopez “Icon” Speech + More From Billboard Music Awards!

Published

MJ came back, J. Lo showed off that butt and Robin Thicke hit the stage begging for Paula Patton to take him back — the 2014 Billboard Music Awards was one for the record books!

Before the big show began, HipHollywood hit the red carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to chat with all the stars about the highly anticipated Michael Jackson hologram. While everyone was placing bets on which MJ they’d see, 2 Chainz told us he wanted it to be “Thriller” Mike, while Floyd Mayweather wanted a version of the King of Pop from “the 7os, 80s, 90s and beyond.”

Outside of the reincarnation of Michael Jackson, other major performances included, Jason Derulo’s high-intensity dance number, John Legend serenading Chrissy Teigen, Robin Thicke’s “take me back please” plea and Jennifer Lopez, who shut the stage down TWICE! The big booty, Bronx girl also was honored with the Icon Award and gave an empowering speech on never giving up on your dreams.

Other highlights included Justin Timberlake winning BIG with 7 trophies, then thanking “everyone of Earth…except Donald Sterling” and Kendall Jenner embarrassingly calling 5 Seconds of Summer, One Direction.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

on

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
