The VMAs may be in the rear view mirror, but many online trolls are still finding time to criticize Alicia Keys for attending the awards program makeup free.

And her husband, musician Swizz Beatz, is tired of it. 

"Think about this this is deep," he said in video posted to his Instagram on Tuesday. "Someone is sitting home mad because someone didn't wear makeup on their face. Not YOUR face...but they didn't put makeup on THEIR face." 

“You can do whatever you want to do. She didn’t tell y’all to wear no makeup. She’s just not vibing with the makeup all the way 100 percent.”

Keys wrote a lengthy essay earlier this year that explained in great detail why she was choosing to embrace a no-makeup lifestyle. 

"The truth is … I was really starting to feel like that — that, as I am, I was not good enough for the world to see," Keys wrote. She added that pressure started mounting on her and manifesting on many unhealthy levels.

"Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn't put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me."

Reclusive reality star Rob Kardashian opened up in an interview with People Magazine about his relationship with pregnant fiancée Blac Chyna.

"She got me through my darkest times," Rob says of the mom-to-be. "I wasn't happy in my own skin. I missed out on so many things."

The couple, who announced their engagement earlier this year, will star in the upcoming E! reality series "Rob & Chyna."

"I've been friends with Chyna for a long time," he says. "She was someone I reached out to for advice. She would cook for me and we'd just talk. She's surrounded me with a lot of positivity. From the moment we met, I knew I wanted to be more than friends."

[[391881681, C]]

Chyna, who appears on the upcoming cover of Elle Magazine only in lingerie told People, "I saw Rob was willing to better himself. I had never wanted to be tough. I never wanted to change him."

Kardashian also told the magazine he still has some insecurity issues and "I'm still not fully happy looking at myself in the mirror. But I'm working towards that. And I'm happy."

<![CDATA[Selena’s Wax Figure Unveiled at Madame Tussauds Hollywood]]> Wed, 31 Aug 2016 00:15:43 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/selena-wax-figure.PNG

This will make your heart sing, "Bidi bidi bom bom!"

Grammy-award winning Selena Quintanilla Perez now has her place among Hollywood's elite in the place where many fans flock to finally grab a picture right next to their music and silver screen idols: Madame Tussauds Hollywood wax museum.

The late Queen of Tejano music was honored Tuesday at a ceremony where her family and former husband joined fans to reveal the statue, valued at $350,000.

Abraham Quintanilla - also known as A.B. -- Selena's brother, Chris Perez, Selena's former husband, and Suzette Quintanilla, her sister, said a few quick comments before counting down the unveiling to a cheering crowd.

Standing with her hands on her hips in a bedazzled bustier - no doubt exactly how the humble star would have wanted - the Selena statue didn't feature her signature megawatt smile, but rather a nice comfortable pose.

But fear not - the museum worked with the Quintanilla family every step of the way, from her outfit to her hair and makeup, to make sure the family's input reflected the true Selena.

Her outfit recreated a stage look from Selena's concert held at the Memorial Coliseum in Corpus Christi, Texas - where the singer lived in her early childhood and also home to the Selena Museum - on Feb. 7, 1993. The look is said to celebrate her performance from her Grammy-winning album "Selena Live!"

The big reveal was also in conjunction with the 21st anniversary of her last studio and English crossover album, "Dreaming of You."

And there's no doubt true fans will brave the traffic and miserable parking to the museum located at 6933 Hollywood Blvd. to grab a photo with the icon. As many fans say quoting her hugely popular biopic: "Anything for Selenas."

General admission viewing begins Wednesday at 10 a.m.

Selena Gomez is taking time off from her "Revival" world tour as she battles anxiety, depression and panic attacks following her Lupus diagnosis, which she made public in 2015.

"As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways," Gomez told People Magazine. "I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges."

"I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best." 

The singer was scheduled to perform in Canada in September before heading to Finland and Sweden in October, according to her tour schedule. It's unclear if those shows are going to be rescheduled and how much of her tour is going to be impacted.  The tour is currently scheduled to run through Dec. 18 and conclude in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The cameras were rolling when Hope Solo first heard of her six-month suspension from USA soccer... and it wasn't pretty.

"Seventeen f------ years and it's over," Solo screamed upon hearing the news.

The soccer star was being filmed by a documentary crew when she learned of the decision to suspend her for comments she made following the U.S. team's loss in the Olympics to Sweden, calling the team "a bunch of cowards."

"Six months suspension," Solo said, hugging her husband, former NFL player Jeremy Stevens. "No pay. Terminated contract. Effective immediately."

Solo was being recorded for the Fullscreen documentary, "Keeping Score," which has chronicled her journey, along with teammates Crystal Dunne and Megan Rapino as they journeyed to and from the Rio for the Olympics games.

<![CDATA[Rodney Harrison Slams Kaepernick as 'Not Black']]> Tue, 30 Aug 2016 15:30:24 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/harrisonKapernick.jpg

Of all the criticism 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has received for his public stance against the National Anthem in recent days, perhaps the strangest came from NBC football analyst Rodney Harrison, who said during a radio interview Tuesday the biracial QB wasn't qualified to speak on issues affecting African-Americans.

"I tell you this, I’m a black man. And Colin Kaepernick, he’s not black. He cannot understand what I face and what other young black men and black people face, or people of color face, on a every single (day) basis," Harrison said during an interview with a local sport talk show in Houston

"I’m not saying that he has to be black," he said. "I said his heart is in the right place, but even with what he’s doing, he still doesn’t understand that we face as a black man or people of color, that’s what I’m saying."

[[391770641, C]]

Harrison's remarks drew swift criticism across social media, including several posts from ESPN host Sage Steele, who slammed Harrison's remarks as a "racist, ignorant double standard."

[[391770351, C]]

[[391770471, C]]

Steele, who is biracial and has three biracial children, has spoken previously about the challenges she's faced being a woman of mixed heritage. 

[[391774091, C]]

"I’m experiencing stereotypes even to this day, from both sides," Steele said during an interview with The Huffington Post. "Sometimes it’s even tougher — and the words and comments are uglier — from black people … I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been called a sellout for marrying a white man and for having kids that look white."

[[391770861, C]]

Harrison later apologized, saying he didn't realize Kaepernick was biracial.

That's no Supergirl...more like Superwoman.

Jessie Graf amazed audiences Monday night when she made history becoming the first woman to compete the grueling stage 1 obstacle course on "American Ninja Warrior" during the national finals in Las Vegas.

Graf successfully navigated the course that includes the "Log Grip", "Propeller Bar", "Jumping Spider" and "Warped Wall" and hit the buzzer with 12 seconds to spare, placing fourth on the night.

[[391762801, C]]

The 32-year-old who works as a stuntwoman for the CW's "Supergirl" told USA Today her previous experience competing on the show helped her better prepare for success during this current campaign.

"My first year doing Ninja Warrior, I didn’t really know what it was about. After that, when so many people were like, 'I didn’t know women could do that,' I thought, 'Then, we better show you," she said. "The main thing is just testing my limits, seeing how much you can do. Seeing how much you’re capable of."

Gene Wilder was born Jerome Silberman, but his stage name proved to be a well-chosen moniker.

The comic actor, in his greatest roles, earned via all-out commitment dangerous laughs by portraying the wild mood shifts of a man perpetually on the verge of a breakdown – and explosion.

In "The Producers," Wilder's milquetoast, blanket-toting accountant Leo Bloom transforms into a maniac who pounces on Zero Mostel's larger-than-life theatrical charlatan, Max Bialystock, punctuating each blow with a cry of "Fat! Fat! Fat!"

In "Young Frankenstein," Wilder's medical-school-professor-turned-mad-scientist, Frederick Frankenstein ("that's Franken-SHTEEN!"), goes gently into a cell to calm the hulking monster he wrought – only to frantically rescind his instructions not to be set free under any circumstances. "What's the matter with you people?" he screams. "I was joking!"

In "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," Wilder's dancing, singing mood-swing in a top hat turns viciously on Golden Ticket recipient Charlie Bucket and Grandpa Joe, delaying the ostensible kiddie film's happy ending. "You get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir!" Wonka rages.

Wilder, who died Sunday at age 83, produced a gamut of emotions for comic effect with an ability that exceeded even the purest of imaginations. While his manic, unpredictable characters changed from second to second, you could count on Gene Wilder, at his best, to give performances guaranteed to last forever in the collective pop cultural memory. 

During his 1960s to 1980s hey-day, he imbued his greatest screen creations, however varied, with an exasperated Everyman quality. That held true for Wilder’s washed-up gunslinger battling the bottle in Mel Brook’s "Blazing Saddles” as much as for his young doctor who throws away his idyllic life to guzzle Woolite over a fetching sheep named Daisy in Woody Allen's "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask).”

But Wilder was no solo act – from Mostel to Cleavon Little to Madeline Kahn to Teri Garr to even Daisy, he rarely stole a scene alone. He struck his greatest comic chemistry with Richard Pryor, producing the hits "Silver Streak" and "Stir Crazy," as well as the underrated "See No Evil, Hear No Evil."

The two seemingly very different personalities packed a common knack for pushing comedy to the edge. Case in point: The “Stir Crazy” scene in which Pryor’s and Wilder’s characters trade off meltdowns as they enter prison. Pryor’s attempted words of inspiration (“Don’t mess up – just think about our people”) can’t stop Wilder from freaking out on a guard who clubbed him: “No more hitting! Did you hear what just I said? No-more-hitting!”

Wilder's strongest behind-the-scenes collaborator, of course, was Brooks, who skillfully tapped the frizzy-haired actor’s deepest angst while directing him in "The Producers," "Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein." They teamed on the script for "Young Frankenstein," which drew hilarity as much as from a spot-on parody of 1930s horror movies as from one unhinged doctor’s very 1970s identity crisis.

In the end, Wilder's Frankenstein discovers his true gift as he gleefully shares the sweet mystery of life with Garr’s Inga. Fans will be forever grateful that Wilder shared his talent for mining the mysteries of the inner life, yielding unfettered emotions that made us laugh until we cried.

The nephew of legendary comedy actor and writer Gene Wilder released a heartfelt statement Monday on his 83-year-old uncle's death. Wilder died late Sunday in Stamford, Connecticut, due to complications with Alzheimer's disease.

Wilder starred in classic comedy films including "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein." 

"He continued to enjoy art, music, and kissing with his leading lady of the last twenty-five years, Karen," wrote his nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman. "He danced down a church aisle at a wedding as parent of the groom and ring bearer, held countless afternoon movie western marathons and delighted in the the company of beloved ones."

The letter in its entirety is included below:

It is with indescribable sadness and blues, but with spiritual gratitude for the life lived that I announce the passing of husband, parent, and universal artist Gene Wilder, at his home in Stamford Connecticut. It is almost unbearable for us to contemplate our life without him. The cause was complications from Alzheimers Disease with which he co-existed for the last three years. The choice to keep this private was his choice, in talking with us and making a decision as a family. We understand for all the emotional and physical challenges this situation presented we have been among the lucky ones—this illness-pirate, unlike in so many cases, never stole his ability to recognize those that were closest to him, nor took command of his central-gentle-life affirming core personality. It took enough, but not that.

The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn’t vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and causing delight to travel to worry, disappointment or confusion. He simply couldn’t bear the idea of one less smile in the world.

He continued to enjoy art, music, and kissing with his leading lady of the last twenty-five years, Karen. He danced down a church aisle at a wedding as parent of the groom and ring bearer, held countless afternoon movie western marathons and delighted in the the company of beloved ones.

He is survived by Karen, Jordan, and the Webbs (Kevin, Gretchen, Tucker, Spencer), along Jordan’s wife Elizabeth. Gene's sister Corinne, predeceased him in January of this year. He was eighty-three and passed holding our hands with the same tenderness and love he exhibited as long as I can remember. As our hands clutched and he performed one last breath the music speaker, which was set to random, began to blare out one of his favorites: Ella Fitzgerald. There is a picture of he and Ella meeting at a London Bistro some years ago that are among each or cherished possessions. She was singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," as he was taken away.

The death of legendary singer Juan Gabriel this weekend moved people around the world to tears - including fellow icon Marc Anthony.

Anthony grew emotional Sunday night at Radio City Music Hall while performing "Abrazame Muy Fuerte," a Gabriel hit from 2000 that Anthony covered on a 2010 album.

"They just don't write songs like this anymore," Anthony told Billboard in 2010 of the Gabriel tune and others on his "Iconos" album.

With tears in his eyes and wiping his face repeatedly, Anthony performed Gabriel's song in front of a giant projection of the beloved Mexican singer.

Gabriel died Sunday morning. (For photos and memories of Gabriel in Spanish, click here for more from Telemundo 47).

The couple, who has been together for eight years celebrated their engagement on stage. 

“This is my girlfriend, Jill," the groom-to-be said after Springsteen handed him the mic. "We've been to a ton of shows together. This is by far the highlight of them all." 

They stayed onstage as Springsteen serenaded them to the rest of “Jersey Girl” as they slow-danced and took selfies.
