Lionel Richie jested today that he contacted Adele’s lawyers having heard her latest single, trying to copyright the phrase ‘Hello’.

The 66 year old singer, who recently announced a massive UK tour following his successful appearance at Glastonbury Festival earlier this year, spoke to The Sun and, with tongue firmly in cheek, remarked that he contacted lawyers to figure out whether he might have a case. No, unsurprisingly, came the answer.

Fail! Lionel Richie's Name Spelled Wrong At The BET Awards


Lionel Richie Lupita Nyong'o Beyonce Knowles John Legend Jay Z Pharrell Williams

Whoever was in charge of the captioning at last night's BET Awards should hang their head in shame after they misspelled the name of the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement award, Lionel Richie. During the televised coverage of the Black Entertainment Television Awards on Sunday night (29th June), which was watched by millions around the world, the broadcasting team managed to spell Richie's surname as "Ritchie."

Sure, plenty of worse things could have happened, but it's still a pretty embarrassing move considering Richie was practically the guest of honor at the bash. To make matters worse, the mistake flashed on the screen in large lettering as the 65 year-old soul star headed to collect his prize.

Soon the hashtag "#lionelritchie" began trending on Twitter as viewers picked up on the blunder and quickly spread the news leading to embarrassment for the show's production team.

The man incurred two stab wounds in the stomach, but his condition is stable, the website also reports. The reason for the fight has not been uncovered so far.

Bonnaroo Festival is famous for having provided a stage to one of Kanye West's famous rants last time he played in 2008.

What Is Cee Lo Green Doing This Year Instead Of "The Voice"?


Cee-Lo Green Lionel Richie

The Voice might just be taking cues from American Idol and is changing its lineup. Yesterday judge Cee Lo Green, of Gnarls Barkley fame, announced that he would be departing the NBC competition. For anyone, who’s still enjoying the judge/music producer’s presence, fret not, it sounds like we’re going to be seeing more of him this year. At least that’s what Green told Ellen Degeneres in an interview on Wednesday.

Cee Lo Green, Grammy Party
Green making music again could only be a good thing.

"I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC. I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year," Green told Ellen. "But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice, too."

Latest Michael Jackson Child Abuse Allegations "Bogues," Says Lionel Richie


Michael Jackson Lionel Richie

Hello, is it me you’re looking for? Nope, Lionel Richie thinks that the courts would be wrong to pursue the Jackson family following choreographer Wade Robson’s recent child molestation claims against the late King of Pop, claiming that the accusations are “bogus.”

Wade Robson had actually testified in Jackson’s defense in a 2005 child sex abuse trial, but in a weird twist the choreographer has now launched a claim against the late pop star, saying that he was abused by Jackson over a seven year period. "Michael Jackson was a monster and in their hearts every normal person knows it," Mr Robson's lawyer, Henry Gradstein, said in a statement to a news agency, according to Sky News. He added: "He (Mr Robson) collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child. He lived with the brainwashing by a sexual predator until the burden of it all crushed him."

There have been so many claims and rumors about Jackson’s extra-curricular activities over the years, but none have managed to stick, and if you believe Lionel Richie that’s because there isn’t anything to stick on him. TMZ attempted to get a word with the crooner recently about the recent allegations and were dismissed completely. Robson must wait for a judge to decide whether he can pursue his case.

Good Genes Or Good Ops: Which Male Celebrities Don't Show Their Age?

We've all had that moment; looking at photos of our favourite celebs and then jumping out of our seats screaming, 'He's HOW old?!' Well, we've been doing a lot of that here at ContactMusic. Some stars seem to have crept up the age ladder pretty sneakily, the odd wrinkle and grey hair barely registering on our radar, while others don't seem to have aged at all! English football player David Beckham was in his twenties when he rose to global popularity and, looking at his recent H&M underwear advert, it seems that his iconic hairstyles and tattoos are our only way of working out the old from the newer pictures of him. However, he is only 37 and has plenty of time to catch up yet. It's the over-50s that have really had our mouths agape in recent times as we've been scouring the net for the most youthful looking middle to old aged stars.
