We spend a lot of our lives at work, so it’s always nice when you can find a job that surrounds you with people you like working with — just ask Blake Shelton, whose tenure as a coach on ‘The Voice‘ has sparked a friendship with Adam Levine. Wait, did we say friendship? This is something deeper. Blake and Adam have entered bromance territory.
Every year, the Recording Academy pays tribute to artists who passed away over the last 12 months with an In Memoriam slideshow at the Grammy Awards — and every year, disgruntled fans point out which artists didn’t receive their due. But last night (Feb. 12), plenty of people who watched the slideshow noticed the surprising omission of a pair of recently deceased legends: Etta James and Don Cornelius.
You’ve got to hand it to Katy Perry — even in the midst of what must be a painful divorce, she’s still managing to have fun with the rumors surrounding her love life, and flirting with some of the NFL’s most eligible bachelors in the bargain.
Perhaps you hadn’t noticed, but the Grammy Awards have been operating without a host for the last seven years. That’s long enough as far as the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences is concerned, and to prove it, they’ve gone out and enlisted the services of all-world MC LL Cool J, who has spent the last four years hosting the Grammys’ live nominations concert show.
When BET announced its plans to pay homage to Mariah Carey at this year’s BET Honors, it raised a number of intriguing possibilities for guest performance artists. Given Carey’s long line of hits and large influence on the current crop of R&B divas, it seemed likely that the network would have its pick of big-voiced pop stars willing to pay her tribute — and it looks like they’ve chosen former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland.
The numbers are in, and it’s official: more people decided to stay home instead of seeing their favorite acts on tour in 2011. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good year for some of the artists who hit the road — including Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, both of whom made the North American top five in Pollstar’s year-end list of the top-grossing tours.
In fact, Taylor had the second-most popular tour of 2011, bringing in an impressive $97.7 million in the States — right behind U2, who topped the American chart as well as the worldwide tally.
Good news for fans of unforgettable Oscar moments: Elton John and Lady Gaga‘s duet ‘Hello, Hello,’ featured in the soundtrack to this year’s animated hit ‘Gnomeo & Juliet,’ is in the running for Best Song.
We’ve heard a lot in recent weeks about the records being tied, set, and/or broken by Katy Perry and Rihanna — which has made it easy to forget that Adele‘s ’21′ is still the top-selling album of 2011. Well, here’s an even more impressive reminder of the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ singer’s success: ’21′ not only outpaced sales of all other releases this year, it posted the biggest one-year sales total since 2004.
She’s only 14, but ‘X Factor‘ alum Drew Ryniewicz has already gotten further in the pursuit of her dreams than some people manage in a lifetime. Although she was voted off the show in Week 6, she’s about to enjoy a triumphant return in the season finale — while making one more dream come true in the bargain.
