Today, Cobain continues to exert tremendous influence over the music world and fans and musicians from around the world have gathered outside Kurt's home as well as at nearby Viretta Park in Seattle to leave flowers and personal messages, many of them sporting flannel shirts in honor of the singer's ties to the 90s grunge scene.

Musicians ranging from Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong to folk-rock legend Neil Young have offered public tributes to Cobain and his music, sharing personal stories about how they were influenced by his work.

Two decades later, the cause of Cobain's death remains a source of controversy. Conspiracy theories abound negating the ruling that the singer took his own life, and just last month new photos from the scene of Cobain's death were released by Seattle police, re-opening old debates about what exactly killed the rock icon.

Legendary Blondie singer Debbie Harry came out as bisexual in a recent interview with London's Daily Mail.

Harry founded her legendary punk-era band with longtime boyfriend Chris Hastings, but says that since they broke up in the late 80s, she's enjoyed several relationships with women.

Asked about her attraction, Harry replied that "women are just more sensual."

Debbie pointed that most of her long-term relationships have been with men, but she added that she has no plans to stop dating women anytime soon.

Debbie may be a little late to the party, coming out at 68, but we applaud her courage nonetheless. She joins a long list of celebrities who have come out in recent years.

A rep for the artist confirms that Cyrus came down with a case of the flu and was forced to postpone a show in Charlotte as a result, just 30 minutes prior to when it was scheduled to begin.

They didn't wear cowboy hats, boots of spurs, but the stars still came out in force last night at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards.

With Miranda Lambert leading the way with three trophies (including Vocal of the Year), the event itself was a worthy watch.

But not nearly as worthy as what went down prior to the event, as everyone from Taylor Swift to LL Cool J walked the red carpet in various dresses, blouses and suits.

Who looked best? Who should really fire his/her stylist? Compare a variety of looks now and decide on your favorite:

Miley Cyrus continues to openly mourn her late dead, Floyd.

The poor canine got killed by a coyote last week and Miley proceeded to write on Twitter that she was in unbearable pain as a result of the loss.

She later broke down on stage in Boston while singing about Floyd.

On Saturday, meanwhile, Cyrus took her mourning to a new, somewhat strange level: she actually sang the track "Can't Be Tamed" to a giant statue of her late furry friend in Brooklyn.

"That was the hardest song of the night to do," Miley told the crowd afterward. "As y’all know, because I lost my Floydie this week... Sometimes I just can’t stop from breaking down crying."

She added, though, that "it's healing" to be in the company of her fans. Watch this unique performance now:

The Wu-Tang Clan's unprecedented plan to produce just a single copy of its new double album in order to increase its value is off to a flying start.

According to RZA, the group has already received seven-figure offers for the one-off 31-track record, called The Wu - Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.

"Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday," RZA said.

"I've been getting a lot of emails: some from people I know, some from people I don't know, and they're also emailing other members of my organization."

"So far, $5 million is the biggest," the rapper (real name Robert Diggs) added.

"I don't know how to measure it, but it gives us an idea that what we're doing is being understood by some. It's been real positive," RZA added.

"And there are some good peers of mine also, who are very high-ranking in the film business and the music business, sending me a lot of good will."

A couple years ago, we asked: is Austin Mahone the next Justin Bieber?

Most likely not, it appears, but that isn't stopping the young artist from teaming up with Justin Bieber. 

Both handsome singers posted the same photo of themselves in a recording studio today, as they’re locked in an embrace with Cash Money co-founder Birdman and Young Money performer Mack Maine.

"New music #YMCMB,” wrote Bieber as a caption, while Mahone added: “What an amazing song last night..The world isn’t ready! @justinbieber."

An insider has confirmed that Mahone and Bieber (who is about to strike a plea deal in his DUI case) are collaborating on at least one new track, with a source telling Gossip Cop:

Farrah Abraham's music career is "Blowin'" up ... and thanks to the fact that she allegedly stiffed the guy who helped bolster it, the blowback has begun.

Writer/producer Adam Barta claims he had a deal to share credit and profits from the Farrah Abraham "Blowin'" video ... only she screwed him over hard.

Not like she did James Deen, either. Figuratively.

Farrah released the song by herself out of nowhere, he claims - and the record bears him out in that regard - and is hoarding the profits from "Blowin'".

We know ... there are profits from that thing?!

Adam, who also collaborated with Nadya Suleman (on her music video for "Sexy Party," not the Octomom porn), does not appreciate being lied to.

Apparently he's never met Farrah Abraham.
