As the world continues to mourn the loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, the Lakers’ star oldest daughter Natalia recently paid homage to her loved ones.

On Sunday (Mar. 8), Natalia, 17, posed in front of a mural remembering her father and sister ahead of her Winter Formal. The touching portrait finds Kobe kissing Gianna with a halo resting on the top of her head.

Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, recognized «her babies» with the touching photo on her Instagram led by a heart emoji.

Bryant and his daughter were among the nine victims who lost their lives on Jan. 26 in a tragic helicopter crash. Kobe was 41, and Gianna was 13. Last month, Vanessa Bryant filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company that owned the aircraft that was responsible for the loss of her husband and daughter.

Selena Gomez stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show on Friday (March 6) to chat about her latest album, Rare, and how it helped her find her own identity as an artist.

During the interview, Gomez opened up to her fellow pop star about why she considers Rare her most self-realized album yet, saying, «Because I started so young, there’s a huge part of me that didn’t get a chance to develop my identity in a normal setting…I’ve constantly been trying to make my music better and better because, you know, I know that people may not think I’m the greatest singer, but I just work my ass off and I really love writing and creating and creating melodies and growing. I felt like this was my chance to say all the things I wanted to say in that way.»

After the superstar revealed she’s already back in the studio recording new music, host Kelly Clarkson was quick to circle back and rebut her earlier self-deprecating assertion about her singing ability. «The best singer in the world — talking to everyone in the world right now — is not the loudest and is not the, you know, ‘Oh my god, you have to sing like Whitney Houston every time you get…'» she said. «The best singers in the world move you, and that comes from all different sounds and styles. So, like, from a singer to a singer, it’s beautiful what you do…I love singing your music; it means something and it moves people. So don’t ever negate your gift ‘cause it’s powerful.»

The original American Idol champ also opened the episode with a soaring Kellyoke cover of Gomez’s first No. 1 single «Lose You To Love Me.»
