There can be miracles when you believe.
As long as your idea of a miracle is seeing the elusive chanteuse herself, Mariah Carey, riding the subway in New York City during your commute. Apparently, Mimi did just that Thursday night following a Fresh Air Fund gala. Naturally, she’s wearing a ballgown. Naturally, people can see what appears to be minimum two bodyguards in the shot. Naturally, she’s also got gloves on, because while she may sit with the people, she’s certainly not touching them.
“Glimpses of our joyride on the 1 train #subwayincouture,” Carey captioned the Instagram pic. Check out Carey — who joins a list of high-profile subway-goers that includes Madonna, Jay-Z, and, uh, Rick Springfield — enjoying one sweet day (with the people) below: READ FULL STORY
Lucy Hale may be best known for her role on ABC Family’s wildly successful Pretty Little Liars, but the 24-year-old actress is hoping to make her mark on the world of country music with the release of her debut album, Road Between, set to drop June 3.
EW caught up with the singer to get the scoop on her new album at YouTube Space LA, where Hale spent the day cutting a multi-song session for her own YouTube channel and partaking in a live Q&A with What’s Trending Live host Shira Lazar. READ FULL STORY
Did 50 Cent really throw the worst first pitch in baseball history Tuesday night? When the rapper tossed the ceremonial ball before the New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game, Fiddy nearly took out a photographer standing at what normally would have been deemed a safe distance from home plate. It was, by all accounts, terrible.
But 50 Cent has plenty of competition when it comes to Most Embarrassing Pitching Performance by a Celebrity. And for some reason, musical artists in particular seem to be lacking in throwing skills. Here are the 10 wildest first pitches by pop stars, rappers, and rockers, ranked from nearly hittable to hittable if they’re suddenly playing golf.
Here’s one midnight memory the One Direction boys would like to fade by morning: Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson were “caught” on video allegedly smoking a joint while in a car in Peru. The clip, shot by Tomlinson, was obtained by The Daily Mail and since removed from their site.
According to the Telegraph, Tomlinson jokes on the five-minute tape: “So here we are, leaving Peru. Joint lit. Happy days!” As he speaks, he and Malik laugh and pass some kind of cigarette back and forth. A spokesman for the band told the Guardian that he has no further comment on the video, adding, “This matter is in the hands of our lawyers.” (A rep for the band didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.)

Great news for Carly Rae Jepsen: She’s no longer responsible for the worst celebrity first pitch ever.
That honor now goes to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, courtesy of Tuesday night’s New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game. Jackson wound up tossing the ball crookedly, to the area between home and first base. As the announcer for one station noted, “It’s good. He never [had to choose] between playing for the Mets and being a rapper.”
A laughing Jackson took it all in stride: While the pitch may not have met his pre-game Twitter promise of “This is gonna be good,” at least he’ll have his 14 Grammy nominations to fall back on.
Watch Curtis attempt to make the pitch (or die trying) below: READ FULL STORY
Holler If Ya Hear Me, the Broadway musical based on the music of late rap legend Tupac Shakur, begins previews next week. The show reinterprets a handful of Tupac’s biggest songs, from the sweetly confessional “Dear Mama” to the rousing player’s anthem “I Get Around.” The cast, a healthy mix of Broadway vets and newcomers, have recorded the show’s nearly two dozen songs, and EW is pleased to premiere three of those songs.

Kanye West reportedly gave 20-minute toast at wedding. So, how many times did he quote his own lyrics?
To the beautiful, lucky soul who is not yet aware: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got married over the weekend.
Details about the ceremony and reception are slowly emerging. One nugget that caught our eye: According to E! (of course), West reportedly gave a 20-minute toast where he, ugh, called the Kardashian family “the most remarkable people of our time… [who] make the world a better place.” “Drunk in Love” is probably the kindest response to that statement.
“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means,” Kanye West once declared. “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period…I understand culture. I am the nucleus.” Could this man really manage not to quote himself — via his lyrics — during an emotional speech? READ FULL STORY
Although he couldn’t know it at the time, Kanye West inadvertently gave voice to his own future wedding guests with this lyric from 2007’s “Stronger”: “You should be honored by my lateness/that I would even show up to this fake sh–/So go ahead go nuts/go apesh–.” (Important note: Beyoncé and Jay Z declined to show up to “this fake sh–.”)
As everyone is all too aware, Kim Kardashian made her third trip down the aisle this past weekend. (#ThirdTimesTheCharm?) And now E! — because of course — has photos of the big event. Photo one is a shot of the couple in front of a wall of flowers; shot two shows Kardashian and West in leather jackets as Kanye (probably) explains the Grease-inspired concept for his next album. Sample lyric: “There are worse things I could do/ than marry a reality star or two/ Even though the neighborhood/ thinks she’s trashy and no good…” READ FULL STORY
