Jan. 25 (UPI) — Rock band Aerosmith was honored as the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year at a star-studded tribute concert in Los Angeles.

John Legend sang “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” the Jonas Brothers did “Crazy” and Jessie J performed “I’ll Be Home Tonight,” on Friday, E! News reported. reported Cheap Trick performed “Rats in the Cellar,” Ashley McBryde covered “Dude (Looks Like a Lady,)” Kesha sang “Janie’s Got a Gun” and LeAnn Rimes belted “Livin’ on the Edge,” while Aerosmith performed its own hits “Big 10 Inch Record,” “Dream On” and “Sweet Emotion.”

Guitarist Joe Perry‘s Hollywood Vampires bandmates Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp also helped out Aerosmith on “Train Kept A-Rollin.”

“Musicians, magicians, artists. And remember, people only really get interesting when they start to rattle the bars on their cages. And the best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up,” lead singer Steven Tyler said as Aerosmith collected its award.

Drummer Joey Kramer did not perform with Aerosmith during the show because of a legal dispute with his fellow musicians about his readiness to rejoin the group following an injury.

He was, however, permitted to appear with the band when its prize was presented.

“A shout out to love and gratitude, to MusiCares, to all our fans, to my partners, to my ever supportive wife, Linda, and to you guys out there and to the music industry,” Kramer said.

The concert raised $6 million for The Recording Academy’s efforts to assist musicians in need.

Watch: Justin Bieber wants ‘tribe’ of kids with Hailey Baldwin



Dec. 1 (UPI) — Justin Bieber hopes to have “a little tribe” of kids with his wife, Hailey Baldwin.

The 26-year-old singer discussed his plans to have children with Baldwin, 24, during Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Bieber said he wants to have as many kids as possible with Baldwin, a model.

“I’m going to have as many as Hailey is wishing to push out,” the star said. “I’d love to have myself a little tribe, but yeah, it’s her body and whatever she wants to do.”

“I think she wants to have a few, at least two or three,” he added.

Bieber said he and Baldwin are waiting to have children until Baldwin accomplishes more of her goals.

“There’s not really an issue, but I think Hailey still has some things she wants to accomplish as a woman,” he said. “I think she’s just not ready yet, and I think that’s okay.”

Bieber also discussed the road trip he and Baldwin took during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We definitely enjoyed ourselves. Got to travel across North America. We went all the way home to Canada on the bus,” he said. “It was a good time.”

During the trip, Bieber had a scary experience where his jet ski broke and the boat sent to retrieve him also broke down. Bieber had to swim to safety in freezing cold water.

“It was dangerous,” he said.

Bieber and Baldwin married in September 2018 and had a second wedding with family and friends in October 2019. The couple danced together in Baldwin’s first TikTok video in March.

Bieber released the song “Monster” with Shawn Mendes in November.

“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love,” Hadid said on Instagram at the time.

Hadid called her daughter her “bestie” in an Instagram post last week. She later gave a glimpse of her baby girl’s head in a new photo. Hadid and Malik’s daughter has blonde hair.

Hadid had confirmed her pregnancy on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in May after reports surfaced.

“Obviously, you know, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support,” she said.

Hadid and Malik have had an on-again, off-again relationship since 2015. Hadid is known for her modeling work with Guess and Victoria’s Secret, while Malik is a singer and a former member of One Direction.
