Watch: Linkin Park release footage of Chester Bennington starring in carpool karaoke segment shot shortly before death

Late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington features in a newly-released video of him singing on the Carpool Karaoke show before his death in July this year.

The video was released with the blessing of his family, and features himself and band mates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn being hosted by comedian Ken Jeong.

The band sings along to a number of songs including their own Numb and In The End as well as Outkast's Hey Ya.

As well as singing along, Bennington also took some time tutoring Jeong in the art of 'scringing' - a portmanteau of screaming and singing.

Bennington died suddenly in July this year.

After seven world class concerts Pink decided to celebrate and head to Auckland's food and beverage hotspot of Ponsonby on Tuesday.

Pink’s first choice of bar was Deadshot, but unfortunately, her large group was turned away.

Soon afterwards, the whole world heard about it when the pop star Tweeted about the encounter to her millions of followers.

After the unwanted publicity, manager Heather Garland spoke to Seven Sharp.

“One of the crew came in earlier in the day and spoke to Brian over the bar and he told them we just couldn’t take a group that big, and offered to find them somewhere else," she said.

“But they showed up anyway and we couldn’t fit them in.”

Garland said they simply couldn’t cater for 30 people.

“They just went on their way and we didn’t realise there was a problem.”

Pink then took to Twitter saying, “She’s been to some cool bars around the world and Deadshot is not one of them.”

Garland said it came as a bit of a shock, but was pleased by the support they had been shown.

“We never even saw her, we didn’t even know she was part of the group.”

But when Deadshot couldn’t cater for them, they went across the road to the Revelry bar.

Alex Dunn was about to shut up shop when the superstar and her crew dropped in.

“She came to the bar herself, so we were just sitting down together discussing what cocktail she was going for.”

It turns out Pink likes pink drinks so she had a blush negroni.

Dunn says, ‘It wasn’t intentional but I had a feeling that she might like the colour and that I might get a few extra bonus points.”

Her posts here were a little kinder calling the Revelry bar, “The perfect place in Auckland.”

Pink got down to some Kiwi tunes and the party ended around 2am.


Watch: Rihanna unveils Savage x Fenty at New York Fashion Week, Gigi and Bella Hadid model in show

Rihanna unleashed the wild beast in a lush tropical land that turned to arid desert with women of all shapes, sizes and colours writhing, cackling, frolicking and stalking like animals for her second season of Savage x Fenty.

Her exotic world of bralettes, undies and pajamas was shown off in 50 looks amid a pond, hydroponics, moveable botanical biodomes and a plant growing station constructed deep inside a cavernous building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard as New York Fashion Week came to a close today.

"My mission is to just have women all over the world feel comfortable and sexy and have fun with lingerie," the pop star, fashion maven and beauty mogul told The Associated Press backstage after the unique show that had her crowd cheering.

"I think tonight was just one of those experiences that I wanted people to feel that energy. I wanted them to feel all the different body types, all the different women in different stages of their womanhood."

Rihanna's "beasts" came tattooed. They included two pregnant women showing off their swelled bellies with pride. Another was a nymph in neon green.

The famous model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid were there, the former in browns, Bella in a soft blue.

All moved slowly through choreography at times, some beneath a waterfall, amid a set alive with fauna, greenery wending up two dome structures that moved slowly around as Rihanna's women slinked in and out.

At other times, women grouped together exploring their bodies as trios. One was very, very good at the splits.

"When you hear the word savage, it's pretty self-explanatory," Rihanna explained. "It's a confident word. It's a word that is fearless, and I feel like the women here tonight represented that word, savage, and I feel every woman has a savage inside of them, whether they found it or not. It's there."

The Savage x Fenty collection for fall-winter, fusing street style with bedroom ready for anything sexy, was available for purchase immediately after the show.

It comes in a range of neons, animal prints, nudes and neutrals, and tones of emerald, ruby and amethyst. There were new silhouettes when compared with her first highly successful season, cut high on the leg.

Bralettes and underwear were done in mesh, fishnet and lace. Pyjamas were oversized to be worn for day or night. Bodysuits ranged from knitted to barely there string options that revealed all, pasties in place. At least sometimes.

This savage world is available at SavageX.com, HarveyNichols.com, Zalendo.com and a pop-up shop in New York, with the Mall of America to follow.

British dance group Rudimental coming to New Zealand to headline festival

British chart topper Rudimental is headed to our shores for the first time in several years.

The drum and bass outfit, known for their collaboration with Ed Sheeran and other artists, will be among the headliners at Christchurch's Electric Avenue music festival in February, festival organisers announced today.

The festival is expected to attract a crowd of about 15,000 as the band performs a DJ set with live vocalists and instrumentalists.

"Bringing major international artists to Christchurch is a key factor in the Festival's future growth," said festival director Callam Mitchell.

"Christchurch has definitely missed out on being able to host big international artists a lot recently, so we try to fill that gap."

Rudimental first scored a hit in 2012 for their collaboration with singer John Newman on Feel the Love. In 2015 the band released Lay it All On Me, which featured Ed Sheeran.

Other headliners headed to Christchurch on 23 February for Electric Avenue include Netsky, Orbital and The Correspondents.

Early bird tickets for the festival go on sale at midday on Monday.

Prince Jackson says dad Michael would be 'very happy' with his charitable work as he picks up award

Prince Jackson vowed to carry on his father Michael Jackson's charitable legend as he collected the Motif Lifetime Medal of Honor.

The 21-year-old star picked up the youth advocacy award over the weekend at the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and promised he would continue the King of Pop's charitable legacy.

He said: "This is a really special moment for me. My dad did some cool things, but his biggest passion was helping others. I learned how important that was from him. We called the foundation Heal LA, because the goal was to further the cause of dad's Heal the World organisation and start locally by helping out at home.

"John and I got together with a few of our friends at school and decided to do little things to help out. All of a sudden, it just got bigger and bigger. We were giving more and hosting more events, and all of these amazing people started helping. Let's heal LA and Heal the World."

And Prince thinks his father "would be very happy" with his charitable efforts.

He shared: "Our generation, they focus on the wrong things, like, 'Who's wearing what? Who's doing what? Who's vacationing where?' There are real problems going on in the world that can be helped not by powerful people but by everyday people who just go in and devote their time.

"You should be decent enough to help out or want to help out your fellow man or woman."
