The time has come once again for the country’s biggest musical stars to rock New York City in honor of a global cause.

The 2016 Global Citizen Festival just announced its star-studded lineup for September’s concert and—judging by this list—it’s a show no one in the Big Apple or watching from around the world will want to miss.

Among the famous faces—and voices—slated to take the stage in Central Park are eight-time Grammy winner Rihanna, pop sensation Selena Gomezand “Best Rap Performance” Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar

“I couldn’t be more honored to participate in the Global Citizen Festival as it continues to help solve important issues around the world,” Gomez said in a statement for the event. “I am particularly proud to be involved this year as the focus is on education. As an artist with many young fans, I believe everyone has the right to an education.”

As the songstress mentioned in her comments, the concert is working to raise particular awareness about the harsh realities surrounding global education—or the lack thereof.

“Around the world, 61 million children of elementary school age are denied an education and almost 202 million adolescents are without access to a junior or high school,” the Global Citizen website reads. “Nearly 75 million children have seen their education disrupted by conflict and natural disaster and 61 million of those are currently out of school.”

In addition to the trio of megawatt performers, Usher, Coldplay’s Chris Martin who is the creative director of the festival, and Ellie Goulding are also scheduled to appear as special guest performers.

The hosting lineup is just as famous as the performers that have been handpicked to sing. Chelsea Handler, Oscar winner Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, Neil Patrick Harris, Quantico‘s Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek and Late Night‘s Seth Meyers.

“The impact this organization continues to deliver for the world’s poor is tremendous,” the Jackman’s said in a statement for the festival. “We can’t wait to see the tens of thousands of activists who took action and showed up for extreme poverty celebrating their achievements on the lawn of Central Park!”

The festival, which was founded in 2012, is a non-profit project aimed at eliminated global poverty within the next 14 years. Since tickets to the concert can’t be bought, visit the Global Citizen’s website to learn more about the handful of ways you can “take action” and win free tickets to this year’s performance on Sept. 24 in Central Park. Hurry! There are already 26,000 people and counting on Facebook eager to attend in honor of such a worthy cause and stellar night.

If only all Hollywood breakups could go as well as Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato’s.

The two dated for just a few months in 2010 three years after first meeting while working on the Disney channel’s Camp Rock.

“She’s family,” Jonas told me yesterday while helping The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to celebrate its new Nitro Cold Brew. “We’ve known Demi for so many years. We’re performed with her, toured with her. She’s just incredible.

“It’s not always the case,” he continued. “Sometimes you have to know when to fold the cards. I don’t think of her as an ex. We’re really good friends. We’ve gone through so much together and we’re really close now.”

Speaking of family, Jonas gushed about being an uncle to older brother Kevin’s 17-month-old daughter Alena. “It’s the best feeling in the world,” he said. “I love my niece. I’m thrilled to be able to be an uncle and be the fun uncle. I can play with her, hang out with her whenever I want and then just hand her right back when things get too crazy.”

Jonas and DNCE are currently putting finishing touches on their debut album, now set for release in the fall. They most recently performed on Sunday at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas and will do the same at the Daytime Village at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September.

When he’s not working—or hanging out with his niece—Jonas has been showing off his hot body by posting shirtless pics of himself on Instagram. He insists he’s not competing in the hotness category with brother Nick.

“I try to stay away from a competition,” Joe said. “For us, we’re both pretty healthy and active and train quite a bit so we do our best to make sure we stay on it.”

Prince Harry Reveals One of His Biggest Regrets After Princess Diana’s Death

Prince Harry was only recently able to open up and discuss his mother, Princess Diana’s passing, but he wishes he had done so sooner.

The 31-year-old hosted an event at the Kensington Palace for his mental health charity, Heads Together, which was attended by many special guests, including Former England and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand.

Ferdinand—whose wife passed away of cancer, leaving him to take care of his three kids—couldn’t help but asked Harry about the impact losing a mother can have on children.

Harry replied, “I really regret not ever talking about it,” noting that he didn’t speak about Diana’s death “for the first 28 years of my life.”

He continued, “It’s OK to suffer, as long as you talk about it. It’s not a weakness. Weakness is having a problem and not recognizing it and not solving that problem.”

Harry—who was 12-years-old when Princess Diana died in 1997—concluded his speech by reminding the audience that everyone can suffer from mental health. “Whether you’re a member of the Royal Family, whether you’re a soldier, whether you’re a sports star, whether you’re a team sport, individual sport, whether you’re a white van driver, whether you’re a mother, father, a child, it doesn’t really matter,” he said.

Meanwhile, Harry founded Heads Together with Prince William and Kate Middleton. Their goal is to bring mental health charities and organisations together in order to tackle the stigma around depression and other psychological problems.

Usher, Sheryl Crow and More Stars Sing to Demand That Politicians Stop Using Their Songs

0

Singers have had enough of politicians using their music without asking for permission.

John Oliver gathered a group of famous musicians to appear in a “Don’t Use Our Song” clip that gave politicians a clear message: stop using their music at political conventions. The British host opened the segment by discussing Donald Trump’s unauthorized use of a Queen song and elaborated on other politicians who have used iconic music for introductions or celebrations.

The clip’s new, catchy tune included Usher, Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban, Cyndi Lauper and more. “But we notice something’s wrong and it’s gone on way too long / So we’re asking you right now stop using our songs,” Usher crooned.

Lauper also joined in and made it clear, “Stop using our music that’s our one and only rule.”

The song referenced specific moments that take place during the national conventions, including a “sarcastic amount” of balloons falling, turning on confetti machines and laser shows. “Stop using our music that’s on our one and only rule / We didn’t write these songs to make your campaign stops look cool,” the group continued.

The chorus had all the musicians band together to drive their point home: “Don’t use our song because it used it wrong / It might seem appealing but you’re just stealing Don’t just use our song it just seems wrong / By the time this tune is through you’ll be lucky if we don’t sue.”

Oliver’s song wasn’t without its jokes, though. Groban provided some comic relief when he sang a pointed lyric about streaming services. “If I wanted to sing and not get paid I’d be on Spotify,” Groban crooned.

And if somehow politicians missed the memo, the group added one last message: “Just to be clearer / You can’t use this song either.”

Rob Kardashian Deletes All Signs of Blac Chyna on Instagram

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have gone radio silent on Instagram.

Rob, who is expecting his first child with the Lashed salon owner, deleted all photos on his Instagram except for an old photo of himself. Any and all images of Chyna have been erased, and Chyna hasn’t posted a new picture on Instagram since July 7.

The couple, who are also set to tie the knot, were active on social media ever since getting together. Chyna often posted Snapchats of her and Rob’s life together, while the Arthur George sock designer frequently shared images of his fiancée and her growing baby bump. At one point, Chyna tracked Rob’s weight loss journey on her accounts, cheering him on and motivating him to continue his successful efforts.

Although there doesn’t seem to be a trace of Chyna on Rob’s Instagram, Chyna has kept images of her fiancé on her account. But Rob has gone through social media purges before, having cleared out his Instagram a couple of times before this, so is this just another cleanse or is there something going on with Rob and Chyna?

On Friday night, Kim Kardashian opened up to E! News about Chyna and her pregnancy, telling us that the family is excited to have a new cousin. She didn’t mention anything about the social media silence.

“They have talked to me about names but I would never tell because that’s really personal to them. If they want to share that, they could,” Kim said. “But we’re just there to support them. We’re so excited that we’re getting a new cousin.”

She added, “I was FaceTiming with Chyna the other day and explaining to North [West] that there was a baby in her belly and then sharing the sonogram pictures with North and explaining to her that this is her little cousin and it’s so exciting we have a new cousin coming.”

Kim also said she was looking forward to sharing baby advice with her brother and future sister-in-law. “I think they’re just starting to get into it, but we share a ton of different baby stuff,” Kim told E! News Friday. “I think once it starts happening for them we’ll have way more tips, once the baby’s here. I’m excited to see my brother in this role as a dad. I think he’ll be an amazing dad.
