Forbes Announces The Top Grossing Singers Of The Past Year

Every year Forbes puts out a lost of the most influential people in the business along with how much they make. So if you don’t feel like you’re poor right now, get ready because once you see these numbers it’s insane.

I think that the absolute craziest thing is that Puff Daddy is still making the most money. That’s right, Sean P.Diddy Combs is still out there doing the damn thing. I mean it did have his Bad Boy Reunion tour, he still owns a clothing company, and he has his own label which he makes money off of.

Considering Diddy started off as doing street marketing for Biggie, I would say that he deserves credit for making such an empire.

The rest of the people on the list really aren’t all that big of a surprise. Although I am kind of surprised that Selena didn’t make the cut.

Check it out!

I would just like to add I love that Celine is still crushing it, you go girl.

Watch James Corden Sing “All I Want For Christmas” With Mariah Carey, Adele, & More!

I keep saying that James Corden is the kind of late night at the moment and I am going to firmly stick with it, especially after this skit. I absolutely love everything about it. Obviously he has been planning this Carpool Karaoke for a while since a lot of these carpools happened over the summer and it makes me love it more.

Any video that has Mariah Carey , Demi, Adele, Selena , Lady Gaga, and Elton John all singing in it is definitely something I can get behind. Of course there were a few other people in it but whatever.

James, keep doing the damn thing, you’re winning.

Also, this is the best Christmas song ever, right?

The Grammy Nominations 2017 Have Been Revealed!

grammy-logo

Today the Grammy awards were announced and it looks like it is going to be a tough fight for the award this year in certain categories! This year is the first year in a while that I have actually been excited for the nominations because there are a lot of artists that I truly believe have been over looked by the academy of music for a while now. Okay, I am mostly talking about Demi, but whatever.

A lot of people were wondering by Lady Gaga wasn’t nominated and it is because her album was released after the submission date, but don’t worry she will be nominated for at least one category next year.  The submission dates for this year were Oct. 1st, 2015 – Sept. 30th, 2016.

As always I will put my predictions, I give myself two predictions, one for who I think will win and who I want to win. Who I want to win will be in italics and who I think will win will be in bold. I do this every year and I am usually wrong, so it’s fun. If I don’t know anyone in the category I will simply leave it blank!

I do think that both Beyonce and Adele will dominate this year, but the Grammys are always full of surprises.

Watch Bruno Mars Cover Adele’s “All I Ask”

I am telling you that these BBC Lounge covers are my absolute favorite thing in the world. There have been so many incredible ones to come out, and add this one to the list!

Bruno Mars performed on the song that he wrote and produced for Adele, “All I Ask”, which is reportedly her next single.

Just watch because it will remind you that even though he is putting out some different styles of funk music, he still has one of the best male voices of the past eight years. I would say ten but I can’t remember when he started, my bad.

Listen To Demi Lovato Cover Adele’s “When We Were Young” !

Demi Lovato can do very little wrong, other than blocking Celebrities Are Tragic from posting links on her Facebook page, but other than that? She has come a very long way and I am glad that I have been a fan for so long.

The other night she and Nick performed in Cleveland and Demi covered Adele. Yup, you heard me right. Demi decided to try and take on an Adele song and guess what happened. She slayed. She always slays.

Personally, this is one of my favorite Adele songs and Demi did it justice for sure.

I don’t understand how Ariana Grande gets all this praise for her whistle notes but nobody wants to talk about how incredible Demi is. Right? Why won’t they let Demi have commercial success? She could out sing every singer in the 20-25 age range, right? Probably even higher than that.

Give Demi the radio play she deserves !

Enjoy the cover, it is beautiful.

The 2016 VMA Nominations Have Been Announced!

So that time of year is coming up. The time of year when you automatically know who is going to win an award because they show up. I love award shows where you don’t even really have to guess because the only people who show up at the winners, for the most part. Sometimes there are surprises but not really.

The show will take place on August 28th, on MTV of course and I bet that there will be a lot of drama, and Kimye involved this year.

This year the show will be taking place at Madison Square Garden too which is a big change from the past.

No word on who the host is, at least I have no idea who it is, and as for performances? Still a mystery!

So let’s check them out! I will give my predictions too, like I usually do for award shows!

Honestly, I have no idea who will win some of these. The VMAs are simply a popularity contest and we all know that. I just think that Beyonce will win everything, Bieber will win at least one award. Kanye will win something and say “I made that bitch famous”, and everyone will laugh. The end .

Watch Adele Dance In Her ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover)’ Music Video!

Tonight Adele premiered her new music video for her new single and this song will most likely go to the top of the charts, you can’t deny that. Adele is something amazing. I wish that I could have a candle scented in Adele’s voice. Do you even understand what I mean? I feel like it would smell like a nice vanilla or something.

Anyway, nothing like watching Adele dance around in a slightly trippy video.

Can we also agree that this title is incredible? What a savage title, such a big fuck you to whoever her ex is.

Adele Announces She Will Be Taking A Break For A Few Years

Apparently last night with tears in her eyes, Adele announced to her crowd that she would be taking a break for a few years after her tour is over. Now there is a part of me that wants to say that I understand. I am sure that being the most important female vocalist of the 2000’s is a lot of pressure, I can only imagine! Then there is a part of me that s kind of like, didn’t you just take a break? I am sorry, didn’t you just not sing for like three years?

Listen, I hate to be selfish but please don’t do this to us Adele, you just made a massive comeback now you want to leave again? Obviously whenever she decides to come back there will be a massive welcoming to her, but please Adele, don’t do this to us.

I understand you want to spend time with your son and husband but they can go on tour with you! I just solved your problem! They go with you, we still get to listen to new music, it all works out!

Watch Adele and Ellen DeGeneres Prank Jamba Juice Staff

This is absolutely hilarious. I have decided that Adele is one of my favorite celebrities ever. Not only is she insanely talented but she seems hilarious. In her interviews, doing things like this,  she takes her professional life seriously but nothing else.

I highly recommend you start your day off by watching this. You will die laughing. Adele is a champ and Ellen is hilarious.
