They added: “There were a couple of funny moments when Britney was giggling through the vows.”

But the source admitted: “It was such a fun wedding. Britney sat with the wedding planner, she wanted a flower wall, she wanted pink, she designed her dress and Donatella Versace flew out to LA twice, she had a wedding rehearsal the day before, Britney was in charge.”

Skanda Trailer: Ram Pothineni Is Fierce and Badass


Boyapati Sreenu is all set to come up with his new movie Skanda following the huge success of Akhanda. He collaborated with the charismatic actor Ram Pothineni in this action drama. Taking to Instagram, the official page of Zee Studios South posted about the trailer of Skanda and wrote, “Experience the Same Mass Madness in every language. Here’s the #SkandaTrailer in Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam #SkandaOnSep15 #RAPOMass.” Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan Celebrate Their First Onam with Sons Uyir and Ulagam (View Pics).

Ram exudes strength in his position and delivers lengthy monologues with ease. In the movie, he plays a young man from Telangana, and his accent fits the part perfectly. The takeaways from the trailer also include how the fights are structured and how the action is prioritised over emotions. The trailer’s impact is increased by background music by Thaman, and the action parts are expertly captured by Santosh Dekate’s cinematography. The final scene of the trailer features a bizarre stabbing, and only Boyapati Sreenu would have such an idea. Thammudu: Actor Nithiin To Star In Dil Raju’s Upcoming Film, Shoot To Commence From September 1 (View Pic).

Boyapati Sreenu is well known for his outrageous action films, and the same is demonstrated here. In Skanda, Sreeleela portrays the female lead, while Saiee Manjrekar also has a significant part to perform. The film’s major antagonist is played by the young hero Prince, and notable Telugu actors may be seen in significant roles.

Skanda which is produced by Srinivasaa Chutturi, is all set to release theatrically on September 15 2023 in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam.

Cory Henry’s Plea To Music Fans


Frankly, I was starting to worry about Cory Henry. The musician and songwriter known for his gospel-infused organ and piano with the band Snarky Puppy and on his own solo efforts, has recently taken to social media to voice what sounded like existential despair.

On Threads last month he wrote, “This will be my last year of touring for a living… I’ll still play shows…but #ThisIsTheLastDance.” The posts that followed were a little more vague: “GOD takes care of me… I never have to worry,” he wrote. Then: “I really just wanna put out music.” Soon after that came, “It’ll be amazing if musicians got deals with music companies like pro sport players do with shoe deals…” Something was going on, professionally or personally, and it didn’t sound happy. Fortunately this week, things sounded a little brighter. “Along the way I’ve lost my way many times… But somehow I always find my way back … Thank GOD.”

Social media is terrible at letting you know what’s truly going on inside a person’s mind and heart but live performance gives you a better idea. Last night at the Masonic Lodge on the grounds of Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, it was clear from the start—whew!—that Henry had full and total access to his sense of joy. He told the crowd how good he was feeling and had a sparkle in his eyes that said all you needed to know about his psychological well-being. Clearly, the guy just wants to play music and reap the rewards he deserves (more on that second point in a moment).

“I’ve been playing piano since I was two years old and I really just wanted to get back to it,” Henry said by way of introduction to a two-hour set of stripped-down gospel, funk and soul songs all played without accompaniment at a baby grand. The show was part of a U.S. and European tour to support Henry’s latest album, “Live at the Piano.”

Here’s the very good news: From the opening gospel slow-chords of “Amazing Grace,” and for the next couple hours of delight, Henry was the picture of contentment and bliss. On songs like “Love’s in Need of Love Today” and “Inner City Blues,” Henry made those classics his own with deep appreciation for the magic of the originals but with unpredictable nuances: Speeded-up riffs here, a thumping bass line there, jubilant vocals throughout. Songs from 50 years ago suddenly found new ground.

Seeing Henry play his own compositions, like “Happy Days,” “Icarus” and “Dedicated,” you got the sense that his music is made to be experienced in person—close up and in community like this. So what that we were gathered at a Hollywood cemetery? Wherever Henry plays, you’re immediately at church.

Those Threads posts of his made more sense at the end of the evening when Henry stopped to explain the economics of the contemporary music business to the audience. “I don’t know if you know this, but every time we use our streaming sources it’s giving the artist 0.004 cents per stream, and given those calculations, it will take another 30- or 40,000 plays until I can go back to H&M and buy another T-shirt.”

The crowd laughed, but you got his point. As Henry went on to say, if you go to a store and they gave you half a penny as change, you would first wonder how they ripped the penny, but then you’d say, well, that’s not very much money at all.

The answer is to support musicians not just by streaming (”although if you’re going to stream, please listen to every song on my new album 5, 6, 7 and 8 times,” Henry said to more laughs). Go see musicians live, he said. Buy the vinyl, buy the t-shirts, get the hoodie, tell all your friends. This is how musicians make money today, and it’s how we as fans can continue to safeguard experiences as sublime as this one, watching Henry play live in a small venue, and with endless soul and spirit.

It turns out Henry is doing just fine. It’s the rest of us who need to rethink our priorities when it comes to how we support talented artists.

Here’s where to see Cory Henry as the tour continues.

20 Amazing Bodies of Iconic Women in Music —


Getting in shape isn’t just about looking good for the biggest stars on the Billboard chart. After all, spending hours on the stage singing and dancing takes a lot of strength and endurance. From clean eating to rigorous workouts, the most successful singers spend a lot of time and energy devoted to daily exercise, nutritious diets, and other healthy habits in order to keep them ready for go time. Here are 20 amazing bodies of iconic women in music and their stay-fit secrets. 


Alicia Keys is famous for having some of the strongest abs in the biz. In a YouTube video shared in May 2020, she revealed one of her workouts with trainer Jeanette Jenkins, which involves tons of ab exercises. Cat-cows, bird-dog, upward dogs, side planks, hip dips, and side crunches are all part of her routine. “The core is involved in everything,” Jenkins says in the background.


Janelle Monae maintains that she dances her way to a hot body. “I do a lot of heavy sweating up on stage,” the performer told Black Doctor. “We do 90-minute shows — I’m moving around and it’s very high-energy. That often becomes my workout, just performing and being onstage. I guess you can say I exercise a lot, but really, I don’t realize I’m getting a workout while I’m dancing onstage because I’m always having so much fun.”


Camila Cabello works out with a personal trainer, Jenna Willis, three times a week. She recently told Shape that their workouts involve minimal equipment and focus on strength, HIIT, and balance, including complex movements that target the whole body. Most importantly, she enjoys herself. “We end up getting in an added ab workout because of how much we end up laughing,” Willis the magazine. “Somehow she manages to keep me on my toes and turn every cardio move into an incredible-looking dance move.”


In a 2018 Tumblr post, Billie Elish revealed why she went vegan in 2014. There were a lot of reasons,” she wrote. “I love animals and I just think there’s no point in creating something out of an animal when the animal is already there. Leave animals alone. Damn. Also, I’m lactose intolerant and dairy is horrible for your skin and my skin is VERY aware of that.”

Taylor Swift is a big runner. “For me, running is about blasting a whole bunch of new songs and running to the beat. It’s also good because it makes me find a gym wherever I am,” the singer explained to WebMD. “I’m very much out in the world, and I love exploring the places we go when we tour. It’s important for me to live a full life.” If she isn’t running outdoors, she will hit the treadmill for an hour.

Lizzo is all about exercise. “I want people to realize that fitness doesn’t have a look or an aesthetic or a weight. Fitness is a very personal thing that’s between you and your doctor,” the star told Billboard. “To have a big black girl singing about how she’s working on the calisthenics – because mind you, I be in the gym everyday, but people don’t believe that … I think that it’s empowering for young girls, to see that it’s okay to work out and not have a six-pack.” 


Miranda refuses to go on strict diets. “I did [Nutrisystem] for a month, and then got tired of it. You get tired of any diet. I’ve tried everything,” she told Women’s Health. She recently changed things up and focuses on eating healthy, balanced meals.. “I just literally would make grilled chicken breast, sweet potato salad. There was no miracle.” She also eats veggies, enhanced with flavor. “I like broccoli with cheese, and carrots with ranch dressing,” she added. “It’s just how I eat.” She gets her greens in with green juice. “So if I don’t eat anything else green that day, I feel like I’ve got my green in.”

Katy Perry has her own version of the 80/20 method of eating. “Let’s be honest,” she told Prevention, “it’s 60/40.” Per PopSugar, Katy eats healthy, balanced meals including soups, grilled chicken, quinoa, asparagus, fresh-pressed juices, and coconut water. She also makes sure to move. “I have had a dance with depression, and hot yoga helps clear it all out,” Katy told Prevention. One of her favorites? CorePower Yoga, which she can do wherever she is. “You always know what you’re going to get,” she says. “If you have a healthy body, it helps you have a healthy mind.” 


Cardi B skips lunch. “I also only eat twice a day,” the rapper dished in an Instagram story. “I eat a big breakfast and then I eat a big dinner.”

Mariah Carey maintains a healthy diet, trying “to stick with the proteins,” she told E! News. “It’s the worst.” Her diet consists of a lot of salmon, which she says gets a tad boring, “But it works!” she added. In another interview with Shape, she emphasized the importance of diet, claiming that “90 percent of losing weight is my diet.”


Megan Thee Stallion recently shaped up by starting her own “Hottie Bootcamp,” workout on social media, a calorie-blasting and toning routine blending strength and cardio workouts, including squats and kettlebell exercises. “These kettle bell work outs are hard…I really hate them butttt they get the job done,” she captioned one of her videos.


Jennifer Lopez’s husband, Ben Affleck, recently gushed over his wife on the The Drew Barrymore Show. “She’s the most gorgeous woman in the world and she looks spectacular.” He also revealed that she doesn’t diet. “Let me tell you something that’s going to upset you,” he said. “Jennifer just eats whatever she wants and whatever she wants; cookies, ice cream, everything.” However, he did confesse that she spends a lot of time exercising. “She works out. I mean, I work out too, but I don’t magically appear to be 20 years old you know what I mean? With perfect skin and the whole thing,” he joked. “There’s no taking away the work ethic. The work ethic is real, the discipline is very real, but also the superhuman thing is real. She’s the most gorgeous woman in the world, she looks spectacular.”

Christina Aguilera has added some swerve to her curves over the years. “I think we all have our good days and our bad days in how we feel about ourselves. Entering this business, I hated being super skinny,” she recently confessed. “Once I turned 21, I started filling out a little bit, and I was loving my new curves. I appreciated having a booty. I’ve always said that women are way more interesting to look at than men! I have a hard time looking at the early pictures of myself because I remember feeling so insecure. I would never want to relive my 20s—you’re so in your own head and finding your confidence. As you age, you stop comparing yourself to other people and start appreciating your own body and owning it.”

During a 73 Questions interview with Vogue Dua Lipa revealed that she “always, always” travels with her yoga mat. “What’s the most difficult yoga pose that you’ve mastered?” the interviewer Joe Sabia asked her. She responded that it was Crow pose into a headstand, which involves balancing your knees on your elbows as you crouch forward on your hands, eventually transforming into a headstand. She then demonstrates the pose, wearing heels and jeans.


Lady Gaga is one of the many stars who works out with Harley Pasternak. He recently revealed her exercise routine to Shape. It includes Bicycle Crunches (six sets of 20) which “train(s) her abs from every direction,” and ab rotations (AKA seated Russian Twists) which help with love handles. Sometimes she will even hold a five-pound medicine ball or dumbbell at chest height while doing them. She also does an exercise sequence consisting of a basic crunch, modified into reverse crunches and ending in a double crunch. Dumbbell side bends, which also tone love handles, are another of her moves. She adds 25-minute cardio circuit sessions five times a week.

Craig Smith, Madonna’s trainer and the creative director of her Hard Candy Fitness clubs, told Glamour that his star client hits the gym almost every day, “Madonna does five to six workouts weekly that vary on a daily basis and focus on a variety of methods and training modalities,” she said. 


Saweetie’s favorite part of her body to train? “Well, I love legs and I was an athlete since I can ever remember. I come from an athletic family. My grandfather played for the San Francisco 49ers and my uncles played football as well. My aunties ran track. We’re all really athletic. So when it comes to fitness, I love working on my legs,” she told Women Fitness. “I think if you have good legs, you look good overall. So, I would say squats and leg presses. Even, mixing in some dance moves like squatting and dancing. I’ve been trying to practice it more and more, It’s a really good exercise!”

Steve Jennings/WireImage

In a video shared on Instagram in 2021, Britney Spears revealed some of her get-fit secrets. One of them? Clean eating and being “mindful” with her food. She also spends a lot of time, yes, dancing.

Beyoncé promotes a plant-based diet, which was introduced to her by her nutritionist, Marco Borges. “We know the power of vegetables,” Borges said in a video of the singer’s vegan journey to Coachella. “Plant-based is really about eliminating all of the overly processed foods that don’t do us any good anyways. When you’re eating plant-based you will definitely have more energy.”

Adele majorly transformed her body, revealing to American Vogue that her drive to exercise was more about her mental health than physical. “It became my time,” she said about exercise. “I realized that when I was working out, I didn’t have any anxiety. It was never about losing weight. I thought, If I can make my body physically strong, and I can feel that and see that, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and my mind physically strong.” She trains at Heart & Hustle, a no-frills private gym in West Hollywood. Her exercise sessions consist of intensive weightlifting and circuit training sessions. She also spends time on the elliptical machine while at the gym.

Close friends Anand Raaj Anand, Anu Malik, Uttam Singh along with stars from Bollywood will attend his funeral.

Born in Rawalpindi, Pakistan into a Sikh family, Kohli relocated to Dehradun following Partition.

Kohli’s close friend composer, lyricist and playback singer Anand Raaj Anand told ANI,  “In 1995, when I first arrived in Mumbai and got my first project, I wanted to open a bank account but bank personnel said they could not do so unless i produced somebody who would vouch for me. At that moment, a sardar ji intervened and helped me. It was Dev Kohli ji. He told me You’re into music, and I write music. Therefore, don’t worry and he signed for me.”

“After two days I called him on his landline as I was excited and things were proceeding in a in a laid-back manner. Kohli ji invited me to sing as we got started playing. I informed him that I had also composed songs and he told me that he would write for me when I made it big. A few years later, his predictions came true and we ended up performing numerous tunes together. I only ever collaborated with one or two other lyricists apart from him.”

“I first met him a week ago, and I visited his house to touch his feet in order to receive his blessing. He requested that I sing a song about Radha Krishna, which bestowed blessings upon me, and urged me to start over and succeed in my career,” Anand Raaj Anand said.

Arriving in Mumbai in 1964 Kohli began looking for film work. With the release of the movie ‘Gunda’ in 1969, he debuted in the Bollywood industry. His first big break came with the song ‘Geet Gaata Hoon Main’ from the 1971 movie ‘Laal Patthar.’

He wrote lyrics for several hit songs like ‘Aate Jaate Hanste Gaate,’ ‘Kabootar Ja Ja Ja,’ ‘Aaja Shaam Hone Aayee,’ ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ and ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’

He and Anu Malik formed a spectacular partnership in the 1990s, working together on songs like ‘Dekho Dekho Jaanam Hum’ in Ishq and ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen’ in ‘Baazigar.’ (ANI)

How Music City became the ‘It City’


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — While downtown Nashville development is currently booming, it hasn’t always been this hot. News 2 spoke with a Nashville historian to find out what key decisions got us to this success. 

“The money has come here locally, nationally, and internationally to build buildings here,” said David Ewing, Nashville historian.

But downtown Music City hasn’t always been this world-famous. Rewind to the 1960s—Ewing said many started giving up on downtown; shopping, churches, and people all left for the suburbs.

“But, the biggest final nail in the downtown coffin during that day was when the Grand Ole Opry left their historic home at the Ryman in 1974 and moved to a brand new building,” said Ewing. 

For two decades, downtown sat relatively stagnant. But, the 1990s ushered in a new mayor—Phil Bredesen—and a renewed vision: if the public sector invests in downtown, the private sector will soon follow.

Nashville built a new stadium, a library, art museum, and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Bredesen called these buildings “civic furniture.”

“It was the cart before the horse, so if you build it, they will come. We even built our arena without a professional sports team. You would never do that today,” said Ewing. 

The 2000s brought the cranes, the television show, the tourists, and the title as the “It City.” The developers’ dollars poured in, land prices went up, and developers had to start thinking outside the box to find land. 

“The prices. The prices have driven people to build on smaller lots but higher,” said Ewing. “In Nashville, developers build tall buildings because they pay a premium for the land, and the way to get their return, you have to build 20 stories, 30 stories, 40 stories, so that’s happening.” 

Those new glimmering towers now dwarf the L&C building, which was once one of the tallest in the south. 

Ewing said he loves the history of old Nashville, but he also says that we can’t go back, and must accept a growing population while also making sure Nashville stays affordable for the creatives who make this city shine.

“It’s the musician who lives on Lower Broadway, it’s the artist that creates something – and we want those people to stay here, because we might be missing the next big star of country music if that person can’t move here and afford to live here.” 

The city of Nashville built The Ryman Lofts in the 2000s to provide affordable housing to artists and musicians. Ewing would like to see more affordable housing investments in areas of the city where people want to live.
