As friends and families mourn and the world continues to grasp for understanding following this week’s Las Vegas massacre, Jennifer Lopez is canceling her upcoming “Jennifer Lopez: All I Have” concerts in the city.

Out of respect for the victims of Sunday night’s tragedy, Lopez will be postponing her next three shows at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The shows were originally scheduled for Oct. 4, 6, and 7.

Per a statement released by her team, ticket holders can expect to be contacted by Ticketmaster and the Axis box office for refunds. The other option would be for fans to exchange tickets for her shows from Feb. 21 through June 9, 2018. 

“Jennifer is heartbroken that such a senseless tragedy occurred,” the statement also read. “Her thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”

Following the massacre, which killed 59 people and injured 520 more, Lopez tweeted that she loves Vegas and that she’s “feeling so broken.”

Jason Aldean was performing at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on Sunday night when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay. The senseless attack is being called the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
