Lionel Richie will be hitting the road next March and guess who’s packing her bags and tagging along? Mariah Carey.

The diva confirmed via Instagram on Monday morning that she will be heading on tour with the legendary singer starting in March. “North American Lambs! I’m happy to announce I’ll be touring with @lionelrichie next year starting March 2017!,” she wrote.


Lionel shared this message on Instagram: “Very pleased to announce that I will be performing #ALLTHEHITS for you on tour with very special guest, Mariah Carey starting March 15th, 2017!”


Pre-sale tickets for All The Hits tour go on sale at 4 p.m. today.

Carey has had a very busy year and clearly she will be carrying (no pun intended) it into 2017.

The singer wrapped up a stellar performance at the Beacon Theater in New York just last week and has been killing her residency in Vegas. The mother of two also became engaged this year to billionaire James Packer, who, unfortunately, broke off off their engagement just last month.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
