Madonna had some tense words for her production staff during her recent gig in Miami. The legendary musician was performing on stage when she expressed frustration over the air conditioning being kept running, which she claims affects her voice. In a video captured by a fan in the crowd, the singer claimed that she had been waiting for her team to turn it off, before telling them that she wouldn't continue the show until they respected her wishes. Meanwhile, elsewhere at another concert of hers in Miami, the Vogue hitmaker paid tribute to the victims of the 2016 mass shooting which took place at the Orlando nightclub, Pulse. Madonna invited families of the victims and survivors to the show, before delivering a speech dedicated to them, adding that nightclubs are places where people come together and should not be places that bring tragedy.

Ice Spice might be known for breaking into the music industry overnight, but now the Grammy-nominated artist is turning her hand to acting. The star, whose real name is Isis Gaston, will appear in the Spike Lee-directed film, High and Low, which is a remake of the 1963 crime drama of the same name. Ice will make her acting debut among Hollywood royalty as Denzel Washington is set to appear in the cast too. A release date is yet to be announced. Meanwhile, Ice Spice is due to release her debut album Y2K later this year.

50 Cent, Chuck Dee and more have paid tribute to New York's legendary hip-hop DJ Mister Cee after he passed away. Mister Cee, whose real name was Calvin LeBrun, was 57 and his death was confirmed by the station Hot 97, though a cause of death has not been revealed. Mister Cee was a fixture in the early days hip-hop community and is widely credited with helping to break through the careers of Big Daddy Kane and the Notorious BIG. 50 Cent shared a tribute on X, calling him a legend and sending condolences to his family and friends.

And first it was Barbie, then it was the Sims, and now it's Monopoly. Margot Robbie's production company LuckyChap has taken on the classic board game to develop a movie. The film, according to the Hollywood Reporter, has been in development for more than a decade, but now it's been confirmed that Margot's company will take the reins on producing. There's no wording on the cast, plot or release date yet, but given Margot's success with Barbie, it's likely to be a big hit. Hasbro Entertainment, the brand behind Monopoly, are also said to be involved with the production.
