(NEW ORLEANS) -- Trey Songz rarely talks about his father, Claude Neverson, Jr. It's because the R&B singer hasn't spoken to him in more than four years. Still, he recently opened up about his absent dad.
"I didn't have a male figure in my life so I had my mother, I had all my aunties. The strength of them gave me a certain strength that I probably still wouldn't have if my father was in my life," Trigga told reporters after he kicked off the Essence Music Festival 2015 Thursday night in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Trey is one of the many headliners at this…
To some, the Fourth of July means the beach, beer and barbecues, but Daughtry will spend that day being reminded of the true meaning of the holiday -- they'll be performing for the troops at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. "It's just, like, the best crowd ever," says Chris Daughtry.

“4th of July at my house is one of my favorite holidays just because it's all of my favorite summer foods,” she muses. “My dad was the grill master, and he used to make barbecue chicken for the whole town of Monticello, Georgia. We…

After being dropped by NBC and Univision, Donald Trump's Miss USA Pageant has found a home on the Reelz cable network.
“The decision on the part of REELZ to acquire the rights to the Miss USA Pageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of American tradition,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz, in a statement on Thursday. "“As one of only a few independent networks, we decided to exercise our own voice and committed ourselves to bringing this pageant to American viewers everywhere."
Months after being named People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman, Sandra Bullock is speaking out against what she calls the media's shaming attacks on women's looks and age.
"I feel like it's become open hunting season in how women are attacked and it's not because of who we are as people, it's because of how we look or our age," she tells E! News.
"I'm shocked -- and maybe I was just naïve, but I'm embarrassed by it. My son is getting ready to grow up in this world and I'm trying to raise a good man who values and appreciates…

And Rudd, known for being a funny guy,…

While the set for his new CBS late-night program is being built, Stephen Colbert is apparently itching to get behind a chat show desk -- which, he explained, was why he recently hosted a Michigan public access show called Only in Monroe.
The footage was posted on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert YouTube channel Wednesday night.
While not in his Colbert Report persona, Colbert was certainly in character, deadpanning through the 41-plus minute program as any local host would, on location in the local access channel's studio, which Colbert said was the perfect channel "to binge watch 2014 city…
