Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker serve up a little love and music in the new film Beyond the Lights. Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball) the film reveals the dark side of the music industry and the importance of finding one’s voice.

HipHollywood sat down with Parker, and his beautiful co-star Gugu Mbatha Raw about their roles, and endearing onscreen romance. “A big part of this project is identity and you can’t love someone unless you love yourself and you can’t love yourself unless you know yourself,” said Parker who plays Kaz.

In the film Gugu, plays Noni, the music world’s latest superstar.  So how did the actress prepare for the role? “Gina really did a great job in developing these characters”, explained Gugu.  “We did a lot of research together going to see Rihanna, going to see Beyonce, going to the Grammys.”

But it wasn’t just Beyonce and Rihanna, Gugu channeled for the role. Check out who else inspired her after the flip.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
