Anthony Bourdain's 11-year-old daughter got onstage and sang -- 2 days after his suicide -- in a performance her mother called "strong and brave." Ariane Bourdain was singing with her band Sunday at an NYC venue called DROM. Anthony's ex, Ottavia, posted a pic of Ariane with a caption personalized for Bourdain: "Our little girl had her concert today. She was amazing." Ottavia added that Ariane was wearing a pair of black, studded boots her father had given her. Anthony frequently talked about how much he loved Ariane and, in general, loved being a father. Ottavia cryptically ended her note with, "I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are." Anthony was found dead Friday morning in his hotel room in France -- he hanged himself using the belt from a bathrobe. As we've reported ... officials are holding his body to conduct an autopsy and toxicology. (TMZ)
A Glee Alum Crush It on America's Got Talent. You may or may not know who Noah Guthrie is right now, but after this week's America's Got Talent, you're going to want to know who he is. In a clip exclusive to E! news, the singer and Glee alum takes the stage to perform some Rihanna and it is good. We may not yet get to see if Guthrie makes it, but we'd be shocked if he doesn't just based on the faces he gets from judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, and Heidi Klum, and the backstage reaction from host Tyra Banks. "That is talent. Talent talent talent!" she says. Guthrie appeared in the final season of Fox's Glee as Roderick Meeks, a student at McKinley High and one of the first members of the new New Directions. Perhaps he'll be the next member of the America's Got Talent winner's club! America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC. (Eonline)
Maroon 5 Release Jubilant Cover of Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' for FIFA World Cup. Recorded as part of Hyundai's campaign for the upcoming 2018 FIFAWorld Cup, Maroon 5 shared a gleeful cover of Bob Marley's Exodus classic "Three Little Birds" on Saturday (June 9). The video finds Adam Levine and company bouncing to the track as they jam in front of a tropical billboard. As the band plays, dancing CGI figures -- composed of elements including leaves, fire, water and metal -- groove along to the reggae classic. The video ends with the band morphing into elements themselves, becoming one with nature. The clip comes two weeks after the band unveiled their epic music video for "Girls Like You." Packed with empowered female figures, the visual features appearances from Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Tiffany Haddish, Sarah Silverman, Millie Bobbie Brown and Ellen DeGeneres, among others. The single debuted at No. 12 on Billboard's Hot 100 last week. (Billboard)
Queens of the Stone Age Honor Friend Anthony Bourdain During Denmark Show. Someone as positively influential as Anthony Bourdain deserves a "long slow goodbye," and Age honored the late celebrity chef with a rendition of a perfectly fitting song. The rock group paid their respects to their friend Bourdain by performing "Long Slow Goodbye," the closer track to their 2005 album Lullabies to Paralyze, during their set at Northside Festival in Denmark on Friday (June 8). "Sometimes you lose somebody, and today we lost somebody," frontman Josh Homme told the audience. "So this is for Tony." The performance followed just hours after news broke that Bourdain had died of suicide at age 61. The TV personality was in France filming an episode of his fan-favorite show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. But Homme isn't just a fan of Bourdain -- after QOTSA were featured on Bourdain's Christmas special in 2007, Homme went on to record the theme song for Parts Unknown in 2013. The band shared their grief on Twitter the same day, as well: "Dammit Tony. I'm so sorry. I'm so destroyed. I love you brother. I miss you too much already." (Billboard)

Kanye West's 'Ye' Debuts at No. 1 in Australia. 5 Seconds Of Summer enter a third week atop Australia's singles chart with "Youngblood" (Capitol/EMI), while Kanye West snags top spot on the national albums survey with ye (Def Jam/Universal). With ye debuting at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, Kanye earns just his second No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, after Yeezus reached the summit in June 2013. Ye also opened at No. 1 in the United States and No. 2 in the United Kingdom. The out-of-the-gate success of Ye spills on the ARIA Singles Chart, which this week is swamped by all seven of its tracks, led by "All Mine" at No. 12. Ye trumps a trio of former chart-leaders. Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys (No. 3 via Universal), the Greatest Showman soundtrack (No. 4 via Atlantic/Warner) and Ed Sheeran's Divide (No. 4 via Warner), while Aussie electronic duo The Presets mark their chart return with Hi Viz (Modular/EMI), which starts at No. 5. It's the Sydney duo's third top ten entry, after Apocalypso (No. 1 in April 2008) and their most recent set, Pacifica (No. 3 in Sept. 2012). Also starting strong is Ghost's Prequelle (SF/Universal), new at No. 7 for the Swedish heavy metal band's career high in these parts, while Luke Combs' This One's For You (Columbia/Sony) surges back into the chart at No. 8, a new high, thanks to the release of a newly-repacked edition with bonus tracks. Also this week, Father John Misty earns a new albums chart best with his fourth studio set God's Favorite Customer (ADA/Warner), new at No. 9. On the national singles chart, 5SOS' go for three-in-row, a feat not seen by a homegrown artist since The Veronicas' "You Ruin Me" (Sony) did so in September-October 2014. The highest new entry on the new tally comes from Maroon 5's "Girls Like You" (Interscope/Universal) featuring Cardi B, which makes a big splash for a No. 5 debut. It's Maroon 5's third top ten from the 2017 album Red Pill Blues. (Billboard)
Trey Songz flew into a violent rage at 2 women trying to take a pic of him outside a strip club, leaving one of them with mental and physical injuries ... according to a new lawsuit. According to docs, the singer went after the woman in the parking lot of Vanity Grand Cabaret last year in Philly. She says her cousin tried to snap the photo, but Trey wasn't having it. In the suit, obtained by TMZ, she says Trey grabbed and twisted her arm and wrist. She says the episode sent her into a depression and she's had to get psychiatric treatment. As for her physical injuries, she says they could end up causing "cosmetic disfigurement." She's suing for medical expenses and other damages. If this case sounds familiar it's because her cousin fired off the first lawsuit at Trey back in December. We've reached out to Trey, so far no word back. (TMZ)
Eminem denied using gunshot sound effects during his Bonnaroo music festival set -- amid fierce backlash from fans who said they were left traumatized when the noises made them duck in panic or run for the exits. "Contrary to inaccurate reports, Eminem does not use gunshot sound effects during his live show," a spokesperson for the rapper told People Sunday. The loud blasts heard during the hip-hop heavyweight performance of his 2000 track "Kill You" were actually "a pyrotechnic concussion which creates a loud boom," the spokesperson said. "[Eminem] has used this effect -- as have hundreds other artists -- in his live show for over 10 years, including previous US festival dates in 2018 without complaint," the rep said. But fans of the 45-year-old musician panicked when they heard the noises during his headlining set at the festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on Saturday night. "[I] was having a good time at Eminem's set then he played a realistic gunshot noise," tweeted an attendee with the handle @sandwahhh. "[T]he whole crowd ducked and I've never felt more traumatized and ready to panic. completely inappropriate." The frightening effects came as some in the crowd were on edge after the deadly shooting at a Las Vegas music festival in October when gunman Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and wounded over 800 more.
