Gwen Stefani Headed To Las Vegas For 'Just A Girl' Residency At Planet Hollywood

Gwen Stefani is the latest musician to score a Las Vegas residency.

Gwen Stefani is hitting the Las Vegas Strip. The No Doubt singer and solo star announced on Tuesday (Apr. 10) that she will be headlining a residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino called "Gwen Stefani -- Just a Girl." The show, which will kick off on June 27 inside the Zappos Theater, was designed exclusively for the room and promoter Live Nation promised that the singer will take to the stage with a "spectacular show like no other, celebrating the breadth of her illustrious musical career."

Tickets for the show will go on sale to the public on Friday (Apr. 13) at 10 a.m. PT here beginning at $59. "To be able to do a show in Vegas is such an incredible honor. Growing up in Anaheim, California, I could never have imagined one day having my own Vegas residency," Stefani said in a statement. "I have been so fortunate to tour throughout my career, but to create a show for Vegas is something I’ve never experienced and I can’t wait."

At press time the residency consists of 25 dates spread out from June 2018 through March 2019; you can check out all the dates below. Stefani has teamed with Live Nation Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment to donate $1 from very purchased ticket to the non-profit Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a Vegas-based nonprofit that provides medical treatment to children facing life-threatening conditions.

Stefani stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to announce some other news. Or rather, to not announce something major. "He got sexier and it just keeps getting better and cuter and more country," she told the host when Ellen inquired how things were going with Stefani's longtime boyfriend and People's most recent Sexiest Man Alive, Blake Shelton. And when DeGeneres wondered if the tabloid rumors about an impending marriage were true, a flustered Stefani said, "So, if I say we we are, then I say we are. And if I say no we're not then that would be sad too."

And with that, Stefani asked the married host what she thought they should do: get married, or just stay in a committed relationship? "I love being married... I think you should get married," DeGeneres said. "Don't you?" At that point, the already nervous Stefani smacked her hands and laughed, "What are you doing?" Bottom line: she loves Shelton, her kids love Shelton and Stefani thinks about marriage "all the time," but for now there's no answer.

Watch the interview below, which also includes Stefani talking about her residency.

Little Brother To Reunite At Hopscotch Festival And Release New Music

This is not a drill. Little Brother is back.

DJBooth reports Big Pooh and Phonte will officially return to the stage as Little Brother at the upcoming Hopscotch Festival. The North Carolina legends confirmed the news to the outlet and noted that 9th Wonder won't be apart of the reunion but did give his blessing.

The group made waves with their debut album The Listening in the early aughts but cemented their legacy with the classic album, The Minstrel Show in 2005. As Uproxx notes, the group also inspired and worked with some of the biggest artists in music today like Drake and Kanye West.

"I'm excited to announce that my brother Big Pooh and I are back at work. New Little Brother music and a tour are coming soon," Phonte said in a statement to DJBooth. "After conversations with 9th Wonder following our Art of Cool reunion show in Durham last year, the three of us mutually agreed it was best for LB to continue as a duo, as Pooh and I have officially been Little Brother since 2007."

Like Phonte mentioned, the group reunited briefly at the Art of Cool Festival in Durham, North Carolina last year. Phone and Pooh will also release new music as Little Brother.

Since their initial split, each member has gone on to release their own critically acclaimed projects. Phonte released solo projects like No News Is Good News and recently celebrated the 11th anniversary of The Foreign Exchange's standout project, Leave It All Behind.

Big Pooh has released several albums over the years, including his latest project RPM in 2018. 9th Wonder has notably gone on to be one of the most important producers in hip-hop, working with the likes of Jay-Z, the late Nipsey Hussle, and Kendrick Lamar. He also founded Jamla Records with Grammy-nominated Rapsody on his roster.

It's Happening: Rihanna Confirms 'R9' Will Be A Reggae Album

Last year, sources close to singer and business mogul Rihanna told Rolling Stone that her ninth studio-album would pay homage to her Caribbean roots. In an interview with T Magazine, the news appears to have been confirmed by the Bajan beauty herself.

Rihanna hinted that the project– which she joked may actually be called R9 thanks to her Navy– will indeed be a Reggae/Dancehall album.

“I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?'” she laughed. “How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?” Elsewhere in the conversation about new music, Rihanna stated that Drake will not be a featured artist on the LP and that she is open to working with Lady Gaga in the future.

Last year, an anonymous producer stated that Rih’s team had “500 records” for R9 “[From] different producers and writers.” Despite the massive number of tracks to choose from, they were able to narrow it down to the lowest double-digit.

“They’re only choosing 10 records,” the producer reportedly said. “They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now.”

While there’s no official word on when her highly-anticipated follow up to ANTI will drop, Rihanna is certainly keeping busy. She recently announced she is working with LVMH on an exclusive fashion house, Fenty, expanding her brand as a beauty and fashion entrepreneur.

Arrest Warrant Issued On Mother Of Nipsey Hussle's Daughter Amid Custody Case

An arrest warrant has reportedly been issued for Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nipsey Hussle's daughter, TMZ reports. The warrant was filed after Foster failed to appear in court for a DUI case.

Tanisha Foster was reportedly busted for DUI in Los Angeles a few years ago. She pled no contest to one of the charges and was sentenced to three years probation. Foster skipped out on her court date on May 15, however, which resulted in her probation being revoked and a bench warrant for her arrest being issued.

The arrest warrant was issued in the middle of Foster's battle for custody of her and Nipsey Hussle's daughter, 10-year-old Emani. Nip's sister, Samantha Smith reportedly filed for guardianship of her niece following the rapper's untimely death. Smith and the rest of Nip's family claim Foster is not a stable parent.

Both parties appeared in court last Tuesday (May 14). Foster reportedly broke down in tears after seeing her daughter for the first time in months. A judge reportedly cleared the courtroom and gave the mom and daughter 20 minutes together. A judge has yet to rule on the custody of Emani.
