Dua Lipa had a huge row with her boyfriend at a star-studded Grammys afterparty after she reportedly caught him flirting with women. The 23-year-old scooped the gongs for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording at the prestigious music awards ceremony, but later her night hit a bum note after she confronted her beau, Isaac Carew. According to U.K. newspaper The Sun, the British chef and model was seen flirting with other women at the bash thrown by DJ Diplo. The One Kiss hitmaker was on cloud nine after her big wins, but ended up shouting in Isaac's face, with the couple having a huge row at the party. "He told Dua she was overreacting and that he’d done nothing wrong," a source told the outlet. “She was adamant he was flirting with them and gave him the cold shoulder for the rest of the night.” This isn't the first time that Isaac, who has modeled in campaigns for Hermes, Moschino and Reiss, has reportedly flirted with other women while dating Dua. In June last year (18), The Sun obtained video of the chef dirty dancing with a mystery woman at London’s G.A.Y nightclub. Dua, who had been on tour in the U.S. at the time, forgave him and the pair has been working on their relationship. After the Grammys bust-up, Isaac shared a sweet post on Instagram, gushing about his award-winning girlfriend. "Prouder than f***ing punch. I told you you’d be walking away with two but you’re too humble to admit it. So proud of you! Ps how fit are you in this pic," he wrote alongside a snap of the pair at a pre-Grammy bash, with Dua rocking an electric blue strapless dress.
Hugh Jackman will open the 2019 Brit Awards next week (20Feb19) with a tune from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. The actor, who portrayed American showman P.T. Barnum in the movie musical, will perform The Greatest Show, which will be directed by Michael Gracey, the man behind the film. Hugh confirmed his Brit Awards appearance in a video he posted on his Instagram page, in which he pledges to keep the big news to himself, whispering, "Don’t tell anybody, keep it to yourself, I know it’s amazing but keep it to yourself..." He then enters a studio and announces to his dancers, "We’re opening the Brits. Oh no! I didn’t tell you that, I didn’t tell you anything... we’re just going to rehearse. It doesn’t matter what we’re rehearsing for. Why don’t we just work on The Greatest Show for no reason? Don’t tell anyone, I shouldn’t have told you." Brits chairman Jason lley has also confirmed the big news in a statement, which reads: "We are delighted to welcome the Golden Globe and Tony Award-winning superstar Hugh Jackman to the Brits stage this month with a performance that is set to be nothing short of spectacular. "The Greatest Showman soundtrack dominated the charts in 2018, breaking records all over the world as well as here in the U.K. It’s only fitting that the U.K.’s biggest celebration of musical successes should be kicked off with a performance from the biggest selling album in the U.K. of the last year." Little Mix, Dua Lipa, and Calvin Harris have also been booked to perform at the O2 Arena in London as part of the Brit Awards, as has Pink, who will make history at the ceremony by becoming the first international act to pick up the Outstanding Contribution to Music prize.
It was ladies night at the Grammys on Sunday (10Feb19) as country star Kacey Musgraves picked up the night's top honor and another three. A year after Recording Academy bosses were criticised for not honouring enough women in the major categories, the 2019 honors were all about the girls with Lady Gaga and Brandi Carlile each picking up a triple, and H.E.R., Dua Lipa, Tori Kelly and Lauren Daigle claiming two awards apiece. But, leading with four were Musgraves, who claimed Best Album and a trio of country awards, and an absent Childish Gambino, who walked off with Record and Song of the Year among his four-gong haul. Host Alicia Keys welcomed Gaga, Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith to the stage to kick off the ceremony with an empowerment message and then the ladies took over with the night's performance highlights as Musgraves, Carlile, Dua Lipa and St. Vincent, Diana Ross, Cardi B, H.E.R, and Gaga wowed the audience at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Keys also performed a medley of the songs she wished she had written, including hits from Roberta Flack, Nat 'King' Cole, Lauren Hill, and Kings of Leon. But the Grammys' two magical musical moments both featured Miley Cyrus - she took the stage with Shawn Mendes for a rendition of his hit In My Blood and then joined Katy Perry, Maren Morris, Little Big Town and Musgraves for a terrific tribute to 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year recipient Dolly Parton. The country music icon sang with each of her guests, belting out Here You Come Again with Katy and Kacey, Jolene with Miley, After The Goldrush with Maren and Miley, and new song Red Shoes with Little Big Town. They all teamed up to sing 9 to 5 to close out the night's top live music moment. There were also performance highlights from rapper Travis Scott, who turned the Grammys stage into a block party, while Jennifer Lopez headlined a Motown tribute with Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo, and Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day joined forces to honor the late Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

Rap rivals Nicki Minaj and Cardi B have been tapped to headline two separate star-studded shows in Los Angeles in the lead up to the 2019 BET Awards. The Anaconda hitmaker will hit the Staples Center stage with her Young Money Entertainment label boss Lil Wayne, alongside Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd, and Bri Steves for the 21 June (19) event, held as part of the seventh annual BET Experience at L.A. LIVE concert series. Cardi will then step into the spotlight at the same venue the following day, sharing the bill with her husband Offset's band Migos, Lil Yachty, City Girls, and Lil Baby. The events will culminate with the 2019 BET Awards on 23 June (19). It's not yet known if Nicki and Cardi will both be attending the prizegiving, but the ladies haven't been under the same roof since September (18), when the Bodak Yellow star physically attacked Nicki and hurled a shoe at her while they were both guests at the Harper's Bazaar Icons Party during New York Fashion Week. They subsequently agreed to call a truce in their war of words, which had been brewing for months after they both featured on Migos' 2017 hit MotorSport. Meanwhile, Cardi is joining forces with Nicki's ex, Meek Mill, to perform at a private party on the eve of the Super Bowl this weekend. The two artists have been booked for the invite-only Fanatics bash at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday (02Feb19), when they are reportedly set to team up for a rendition of their 2018 collaboration On Me.
