Gwen Stefani, Bono and Zendaya Honored at Glamour Women of the Year Awards
At the Glamour Women of the Year awards on Monday night, the elephant in the room quickly took center stage.
“We all thought we would be standing here under very different circumstances,” said Tracee Ellis Ross, the night’s host, who encouraged guests to “let out a primal sound” in reaction to last week’s shocking election results. Ms. Ross, dressed in a silk Fendi nightgown to reflect her “vulnerability,” screeched, rolled her eyes and gagged like a poisoned Shakespearean heroine.
No doubt, the lost chance to celebrate the first female president had to be acknowledged early on at the annual event, held this year for the first time in Los Angeles. (Especially considering that Hillary Clinton won 61.5 percent of the vote in California.) But the ceremony at NeueHouse Hollywood for 400 chic attendees, most of them women, didn’t dwell on defeat.

Watch Phil Collins, ‘Hamilton’ Star Leslie Odom Jr. Perform ‘Easy Lover’
Late last year, Phil Collins told Rolling Stone that he was “no longer officially retired” and “raring to go” after nearly a decade out of the spotlight, but he hadn’t done much to actualize that until the opening of the US Open in New York Monday night.
His brief set began with “In the Air Tonight,” featuring longtime Genesis touring guitarist Daryl Stuermer, bassist Nathan East, keyboardist Brad Cole and his 15-year-old son Nicholas on drums. Extensive nerve damage has made it nearly impossible for Phil to play drums at this point, but his skills clearly passed down to the next generation and Nicholas handles one of the most famous drum fills in rock history with ease.

Talented kids to hit all the right notes at 2016 US Open
Eleven talented kids will make their Arthur Ashe Stadium debuts alongside a returning “veteran” after being selected to perform patriotic songs during the 2016 US Open.
The impressive singers were given the honor after being whittled down from more than 200 performers ages 14 and under who submitted performances through a nationwide online audition as part of the US Open Casting Call. They then nailed an in-person call back in front of top music and entertainment industry judges.
Previous winners have used their US Open performances as springboards to land roles in Broadway musicals and regional productions across the country.
