After announcing their engagement in October, Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian are reportedly married.

TMZ reports the Blink-182 drummer and Kardashian tied the knot in Santa Barbara, California.  Photos snapped at the event show Barker suited up in a tuxedo and the reality star in a white mini dress and veil as the two stand in front of a convertible with a "Just Married" sign attached to the back.

TMZ says the two legally married on the steps of a downtown courthouse.  Aside from a few bodyguards, guests were sparse.  The outlet adds there were people on hand to steer spectators away from the event.

This is the second ceremony for the couple, and it won't be the last.  Last month, the two crashed a Vegas wedding chapel and and exchanged vows in front of an Elvis impersonator, but later reports were that the ceremony wasn't official.  While this latest ceremony apparently is legitimate, TMZ says Travis and Kourtney are going to fly across the pond and throw a much larger and lavish ceremony in Italy.

The Kardashians star first announced her engagement in October, sharing two ultra-romantic images to Instagram captioned "forever." The snaps showed them cozying up on the beach while surrounded by a sea of red roses and flickering white candles.

Kourtney, 43, and Barker, 46, were first romantically linked in 2019, but the pair insisted they were just good friends. The two went Instagram official in February 2021.

This is Barker's third marriage. He was previously married to Melissa Kennedy from 2001 to 2002 and to Shanna Moakler from 2004 and 2008.

Machine Gun Kelly took over the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night to perform his ballad "Twin Flame," but it was something he said between the verses that turned heads.

The rocker hinted he and fiancée Megan Fox are expecting their first child together -- and declared that they're married. 

While performing on a lush green set, filled with fake trees and ferns, the singer opened his performance by announcing, "I wrote this song for my wife." He also told her, "Happy birthday, my love."

MGK's powered through his love song and maintained eye contact with Fox, who was seated in the audience.  Before diving into the final part of the song, he quickly announced, "And this is for our unborn child."

The last four lines of "Twin Flame" are, "Go to sleep/ I'll see you in my dreams/ This changes everything/ Now I have to set you free," which gained new meaning thanks to MGK's surprise announcement.

He finished the song by blowing a kiss to Megan, who sat in the crowd with a proud look on her face.

If Fox is indeed pregnant, it will be the couple's first child together.  Megan shares children -- Noah, 8, Bohdi, 6, and Journey, 4 -- with ex-husband Brian Austin Green.  The rocker has one daughter from a prior relationship.

The two first sparked romance rumors in May 2020 after the Rogue actress starred in the music video for MGK's "Bloody Valentine." The two announced their engagement in January.

Grammys 2022: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivers powerful video message

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a surprise appearance at the 64th Grammy Awards and sent a powerful message about the cost of freedom and the healing power of music.

In a pre-taped video, the president spoke from an unknown location in his country, which is being bombarded by Russian bombs in an unprecedented attack to seize control of the country.  Zelenskyy remained poised and spoke with a stern, gravel-like tone about the cost of Russia's ongoing war.

"The war.  What's more opposite to music?  The silence of ruined cities and killed people.  Our children draw swooping rockets, not shooting stars.  Over 400 children have been injured and 153 children died and we'll never see them drawing," he said. "Our parents are happy to wake up in the morning.  In bomb shelters. Alive."

Zelenskyy urged, "The war doesn't let us choose who survived and who stays in eternal silence."

"Our musicians wear body armor instead of tuxedos.  They sing to the wounded in hospitals.  Even to those who can't hear them, but the music will break through anyway," he continued, noting Russia is bringing "horrible silence with its bombs.  The dead silence."

He urged those at the Grammy Awards to "fill the silence with your music" and to "tell our story" by sharing the "truth" of the Russian invasion "on your social networks, on TV -- support us in any way you can."

While naming the besieged cities of Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Volnovakha and Mariupol, Zelenskyy declared, "I have a dream of them living and free.  Free like you on the Grammy stage."

The Ukrainian president's speech was followed by John Legend's performance of "Free." He was joined by Ukrainian instrumentalist Siuzanna Iglidan and singer Mika Newton for the inspiring number.

How does Shawn Mendes feel about being single?  He tells us in his new heartbreak anthem "When You're Gone," that has fans buzzing it's about his ex girlfriend, Camila Cabello.

The Grammy winner admits in the song that he isn't ready for his previous relationship to end, admitting in the opening lyrics, "You never know how good you have it/ Until you're staring at a picture of the only girl that matters/ I know what we're supposed to do/ It's hard for me to let go of you/ So I'm just trying to hold on."

Other standout lyrics include, "I didn't know that loving you was the happiest I've ever been," and "I'm missing you deeply."

Shawn also admits, "I hate the thought of losing you," and sings about needing to learn "how to cope" now that his relationship is finished.  

He also released a music video to accompany his new song, which shows him preparing for a big show and acting as though nothing is wrong, despite the song's lyrics saying otherwise.

Of course, some fans are saying this is Shawn's effort to win back Camila's heart, because of how pointed his lyrics are.  Camila has been teasing her own breakup anthems for her upcoming Familia album, but her songs hint that her ex-lover didn't open up to her emotionally and caused a rift to grow between them.

Machine Gun Kelly recalls hanging out with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins shortly before his death

Machine Gun Kelly says he had a moment with the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, just days before before his untimely passing.

Kelly told Howard Stern he was with 20 friends when he ran into the band just two days before Hawkins died. "Taylor... went up to every single one of us and gave us each our moment," said Kelly, adding that Hawkins didn't miss a single person, not even Kelly's assistant.

"We were tripping out," Kelly said.

"He's such a beautiful soul... he was so bright," MGK added, also also shared that the two bonded over his portrayal of Tommy Lee in the Mötley Crüe movie, The Dirt. Hawkins said he was "at the premiere" and praised Kelly for nailing "Tommy's mannerisms."

MGK also said the two talked about family, adding, "He was so proud of his kids... And I just want to say to his kids: 'Your father, when we left there, the kids in us came out,'" because "it was the greatest night of our life."

"The last thing he had said was, 'I'm just so bummed I didn't get to see you guys play,'" MGK added. "I really want to thank him and let his kids know he made us feel -- in a time where the outside world... is coming in hard on us -- so confident in ourselves and loved. Your father is a great, great man and we were all lucky to know him."

Hawkins, 50, was found dead in his hotel room Friday night in Bogota, Colombia, where the band was scheduled to perform at a festival. An official cause of death hasn't been announced.

Cardi B shouts out My Chemical Romance: “They don’t make music like this anymore”

Cardi B is continuing to give her hot music takes, whether her fans like it or not.  Recently, the "WAP" rapper revealed she's a fan of emo rock -- or at least, one particular artist.

Taking to Twitter, the singer shared a clip of My Chemical Romance's 2004 hit "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)," where lead singer Gerard Way dramatically belts out the song's chorus.  The track was the lead single off the album Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, which came out the same year.

Remarked Cardi, "They don’t make music like this anymore." 

It didn't take long for the band to catch wind of the conversation and hit Cardi up in the comment section.  
"Grazie mille Cardi!," they wrote, which is Italian for "a thousand thanks" in English.  My Chemical Romance is from New Jersey, not Italy, but whatever.

Of course, this cordial back and forth has fans wondering if the Grammy winner is considering a new collaboration featuring MCR, or if she's hinting that her next music era will come with an emo twist.
