Hollywood celebrated the Billboard Music Awards last night, but like many awards shows have been this year it was also a tribute to 2 legends: Whitney Houston who was honored with the Millennium Award and The Queen of Disco Donna Summer who passed away last week.

Remembering ‘Disco Queen’ Donna Summer’s Life

On a lighter note, Katy Perry got everybody going when she debuted her new single “Wide Awake.” By this morning it was already in heavy rotation on stations around the country and could end up being her staggering 8th #1 single.

You Could Hang Poolside in Beverly Hills with Katy Perry!

Speaking of 8th, Katy was just ranked #8 in Forbes’s Celebrity 100 list of the most powerful stars. I’d say she’s living her “Teenage Dream.”
