[YOUTUBE "v5InGoSQ9ww"] Madonna recently admitted to a surprising, long-hidden romance with Tupac Shakur, but it's Rosie Perez who has the inside scoop: She set them up!
The View host told her fellow panelists Thursday that it all started at the 1993 Soul Train Awards, when Perez got stood up and Shakur offered to be her date for the ceremony.
Even though, Perez, now 50, said every woman in the room was jealous – and some even wanted to beat her up for being with the late rapper – one woman in particular caught Shakur's eye.

When Lorde won two awards (song of the year and best pop solo performance) at the 2014 Grammys, she didn't just become the third-youngest winner in the ceremony's history. Barely a year into her career, the 17-year-old Kiwi also surpassed dozens of industry legends in the great list of Grammy winners in the sky.
Whether they've only won one Grammy, or are still waiting for their first golden gramophone entirely, here are some of the musical superstars who have taken home fewer Grammys than Lorde. (A note: We're only counting competition Grammys. Lifetime achievement awards don't count, nor do inductions into the Grammy Hall of Fame.)

Don't call it a comeback! Well, because Tupac Shakur is just a hologram.
But despite being dead since 1996, Shakur, who was 25 at the time of his fatal shooting, appeared at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival alongside Snoop Dogg this weekend, and his image's performance has become an Internet sensation.
The impressive visual is not actually a hologram, but rather a 2-D image created by Digital Domain Media Group, Inc., which provided details to the Wall Street Journal on what's next for Tupac and the technology.

Some people refuse to believe Tupac Shakur is actually dead – and the rapper's flawlessly orchestrated, incredibly realistic-looking hologram performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday night did nothing to persuade them.
Appearing shirtless in jeans, the legendary rapper – who was murdered in 1996 at the age of 25 – shouted on a microphone, "Yeah, you know what the [expletive] this is! What up Dre? What up Snoop? What the [expletive] is up, Coachella?"
He then paced around the stage and went into a performance of his classic hit "Hail Mary." The shockingly realistic likeness was achieved with a combination of live footage, wire framing and CGI projected onto a special foil, Forbes reports. Some special voice-over work was employed as well.

Rihanna has always been fond of tattoos, and her new one sure sends a message.
Newly emblazoned across her knuckles is the phrase "Thug Life," as seen in a photo the singer, 23, posted to Twitter. It's apparently an homage to Tupac Shakur, who had the same phrase tattooed across his stomach.
And indeed, Rihanna has mentioned Tupac in a series of occasionally obscene Twitter posts over the past day – many of them in response to fans' outrage that she would identify with thug culture.

A prison inmate has claimed involvement in the famous 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur that set in motion a feud that led to the murders of Shakur and rival rapper Notorious B.I.G. two years later.
Dexter Isaac, who is serving life in prison for other crimes, said Wednesday – the eve of what would have been Shakur's 40th birthday – that he was one of the men who ambushed Shakur on Nov. 30, 1994, at Manhattan's Quad Studios, shooting him five times.
Isaac claims he was paid $2,500 for the hit by James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, a former music mogul who recently claimed that Isaac is working with the government to pursue a drug case against him.
