After leading Team Clippers to victory at the the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler surprised fans with an impromptu karaoke performance of the band’s 2007 track “Intervention” at a bar in Los Angeles. Few things are as cringe-inducing as performing your own song at karaoke, and Butler seems noticeably uneasy, wandering around the bar’s patio area in an attempt to break the awkwardness. Watch a clip of the performance below via Arcade Fire Tube.
So, uh, Win Butler just casually dropped by some karaoke spot in Little Tokyo (Los Angeles) last night. I’m guessing he maybe noticed they had “Intervention” on their repertoire and couldn’t resist, or something.

The Kendrick Lamar-curated Black Panther soundtrack has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to Billboard. The album, which features music from SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and more alongside Kendrick, has earned 154,000 equivalent album units in the week between February 9-15, according to Nielsen Music. Of that 154,000 units, 52,000 represent traditional album sales. The release marks the biggest first week for a soundtrack since Suicide Squad: The Album, which earned 182,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Black Panther opened Thursday night, becoming the top-grossing film in history by a black director (Ryan Coogler) with a largely black cast. The film is estimated to have made over $387 million by Monday.
Travis Scott, Migos, and Lil Yachty are making sure their young fans get to see Black Panther.
La Flame, who appears on “Big Shots” off the movie’s soundtrack, rented out two theaters in Stafford, Texas to screen the Marvel blockbuster, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira.
“I LOVED BLACK PANTHER SO MUCH RENTED TWO MOVIE THEATHRES FOR THE KIDS TO WATCH,” he wrote on Instagram.
Lil Yachty and Offset joined the movement by attending a screening that was organized by “This Is Us” writer Jas Waters at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre for 500 foster and at-risk youth, according to TMZ. “We just wanted to watch this movie with y’all,” said Lil Boat. “We wanted y’all to see it and have a good time.”
“This Is Us” star Lonnie Chavis, who plays young Randall, was also on hand for the movie screening. Waters took to social media and added a note of gratitude for Migos, who pitched in as well. “Thank you Offset & Lil Yachty for coming to welcome the kids! Thank you MIGOS for buying out the rest of the theater. And making sure the kids had an UNFORGETTABLE #BlackPanther experience. #GODreamers.”
Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith also treated 1,000 kids in his hometown of Watts to a special screening of the Ryan Coogler-directed film, which topped the weekend box office with $192 million, setting a record for the fifth largest three-day domestic opening in history.
Gunshots brought an end to Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap album release party in Los Angeles on Saturday (Feb. 17).
According to reports, one person was hit in the thigh during the shooting, which took place at approximately 11:30 p.m. in the parking lot of World on Wheels, a roller rink that Hussle helped refurbish last year, according to TMZ.
Civilians were reportedly worried about a possible mass shooting, just days away from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy, and just months after the massacre that took place during a Las Vegas music festival.
It is unclear what led to the incident. The shooter got away and the person who was shot reportedly refused to cooperate with authorities. Nipsey was not seen after the shooting and it is unknown weather he was on the scene at the time of the incident.
This was one of several Nipsey events in honor of his album’s release, which coincided with NBA All-Star Weekend in L.A. On Thursday (Feb. 15), he debuted the album during a sold-out concert at the Hollywood Palladium, where he was joined by Diddy, Dom Kennedy, and Mozzy, among others.
He went on to hold a scavenger hunt with The Hundreds on Friday (Feb. 16), followed by a star-studded album celebration in West Hollywood, which was attended by Kevin Hart, James Harden, Allen Iverson, Irv Gotti, and more.
Before the Oscars, there is Britain’s equivalent: the BAFTAs.
Celebs such as Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o, Sam Rockwell and longtime partner Leslie Bibb, Salma Hayek, Octavia Spencer, Lily James, Naomie Harris, Greta Gerwig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, married coupleJamie Bell and Kate Mara, Gemma Arterton and actress Cressida Bonas, Prince Harry‘s ex, walked the red carpet at the 2018 BAFTA Film Awards (aka the EE British Academy Film Awards), which took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday.
Like at the 2018 Golden Globes in Los Angeles, the actors and actresses dressed in black to show support for the Time’s Up campaign to curb sexual harassment and assault and promote equality in the workplace. Some celebs, such as Jolie and Arterton, brought with them as guests prominent women’s rights activists.
Wearing tops reading “Times Up Theresa, protesters crashed the red carpet to demonstrate against British Prime Minister Theresa May‘s domestic violence policies, but quickly left after police intervened. They did not make contact with any stars and no arrests were made.
Nominated stars for the 2018 BAFTAs include I, Tonya‘s Margot Robbie, Lady Bird‘s Saoirse Ronan, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri‘s Frances McDormand, Phantom Thread‘s Daniel Day-Lewis, Get Out‘s Daniel Kaluuya and Call Me by Your Name‘s Timothée Chalamet.
