Beyonce's Three Kids Make Cameos in a Behind-the-Scenes Vogue Video. Quiet on set! Beyonce's babies have arrived. It was a day of family fun for the Vogue cover star when it came time to shoot her highly anticipated September spread. According to a newly released behind-the-scenes video of the project, the Grammy winner brought her three kids -- daughter Blue Ivy Carter and twins Sir Carter and Rumi Carter -- along to set. The activity in between takes was just as picturesque as the songstress' ethereal photos. While the family is among the most famous in the world, fans got an inside look at the calmer, simpler moments in the Mother's Day. In a scene that could have been plucked out of an '80s home video of the star herself, we even got to see her 6-year-old firstborn hold the video camera and play in the grass as she sweetly said in the background, "I'm gonna zoom in for you guys, ok?" As Vogue explained, the video sees the shoot through Blue's eyes. Mixed in with shots of Beyonce smiling, getting her make done and nails filed, posing, having fun in her outfits and taking a moment to braid her own hair, we also got brief glimpses of her 1-year-old twins as they played with their big sister and got a kiss from their famous mama. However, as the family is always keen on keeping some privacy, the video was careful not to show their full faces. The iconic performer's three little ones were on her mind as she outlined her hopes for her children in the magazine. "As the mother of two girls, it's important to me that they see themselves too -- in books, films and on runways. It's important to me that they see themselves as CEOs, as bosses, and that they know they can write the script for their own lives -- that they can speak their minds and they have no ceiling," the multihyphenate said in Vogue. "They don't have to be a certain type or fit into a specific category. They don't have to be politically correct, as long as they're authentic, respectful, compassionate and empathetic." As she continued, she wants to give her daughters the freedom to "explore any religion, fall in love with any race and love who they want to love," adding, "I want the same things for my son. I want him to know that he can be strong and brave but that he can also be sensitive and kind. I want my son to have a high emotional IQ where he is free to be caring, truthful and honest."

Overnight, Poppy (also known as That Poppy) posted what appears to be a screengrab from a sci-fi themed music video, with the message, "Poppy + Diplo 8/22." In the snap, Poppy is sat bolt upright in what appears to be a hospital bed with electrode patches attached to each temple. Of course, this being Poppy, the clinical locale could be her living room. Poppy has a deal with Diplo's Mad Decent, which stocks and sells her 2017 album Poppy. Computer and a range of merch, including backpacks and the fetching "'Poppy Is Not Signed To Mad Decent' t-shirt.

Migos' Quavo and Offset Join DJ Khaled on Stage in Detroit. Quavo of Migos performs onstage at the Rolling Loud Festival at NOS Events Center on Dec. 16, 2017 in San Bernardino, Calif. Migos had a night off Monday (Aug. 13) -- but two-thirds of the group still managed to find their way onstage, this time in Detroit. The group's Quavo and Offset, who just kicked off Migos' delayed Aubrey & the Three Amigos '18 tour with Drake on Sunday night in Kansas City, were special guests during DJ Khaled's set opening for Beyonce and Jay-Z's On The Run II Tour stop at Ford Field -- a few blocks away from Little Caesars Arena, where Migos will be performing Tuesday and Wednesday. Quavo performed a verse from "I'm The One," while Offset delivered a bit of "Ric Flair Drip." The tour with Drake was delayed several times due to production issues, but the first show found Migos hopping on stage during Drake's set for a selection of its own songs ("Walk It Talk It," "Versace" and "Stir Fry") and covers of Quavo's "Workin' Me," "Cardi B's "Drip" and DJ Durel's "Hot Summer." The tour is currently slated to run through Nov. 17 in Migos' native Atlanta. (Billboard)

Sam Smith blasted for not liking Michael Jackson. A comment about the King of Pop has Sam Smith in hot water. Over the weekend, Adam Lambert posted a video of himself and the British crooner listening to Michael Jackson while aboard a boat, in which Smith can be heard saying, "I don't like Michael Jackson, but this is a good song." While Smith, 26, may not have thought twice about what he said, the internet certainly did, with hundreds quickly taking to social media to slam the singer and point out that his song "Writing's on the Wall," from the 2015 James Bond movie "Spectre," sounded like Jackson's "Earth Song." One of the many people angered by Smith's comments was R&B legend, and former Jackson girlfriend, Stephanie Mills who tore into him on Instagram. "Don't come for MICHAEL JACKSON when you wish you have sold as many records and you wish you were the King of Pop like he was," Mills, 61, wrote. "I'm so tired of you people studying our music and studying our artist and claiming that you don't like our music." "Go sit your 1 HIT WONDER ass down and learn how to finish a tour," she continued. "When you can sell as many records as the king of Pop, Michael Jackson then maybe you can say something. So, I say to you Mr. Smith have several seats and come for me if you want to." Jackson's nephew TJ also weighed in on the matter, tweeting, "Sam Smith made a career on singing R&B/soul music. So, to look into a camera and disregard one of its pillars is ignorant, disrespectful and arrogant. Everyone has opinions but @samsmithworld don't disparage a soul pioneer when they helped paved the way for you and your music." He added that it was fine if Smith didn't like Jackson's music, the issue was that he made the comments on video, whether or not he expected that video to go public. "Anyone can like ANYONE they want," he tweeted. "What bothers me is SS is a popular SOUL artist. So, when he looks into ANY camera there is a good chance what is said will become public 1day. And for HIM to disrespect ANY classic soul Motown/Stax/etc artist publicly is arrogant. Period. Smith has yet to respond to the backlash to his comments. (PageSix)
