Celine Dion Singing Along With Cher Is All You Need Today

Don’t you worry both Cher and Celine will both their own blog posts after their performances last night, but this backstage moment is probably my favorite of the night.

Celine is out there supporting Cher, singing along to her, this is what legends do. They support each other. That is why each woman is an icon in their own right.

Both ladies absolutely killed it last night and reminded everyone there what it is like to be a performer and musician. That’s all I will say as I sip my tea.

Why We Should Really Leave Britney Spears Alone

Since Britney‘s fantastic Billboard Music Award performance where she won the millennial award, something that only two other artists have won, people have been hating on her hard. (In reality people have been rooting for her to fail much longer than that, which I will get into further in the article). I don’t know if you guys knew this but Britney has always been a performer. She is all about the show and she rarely sings live, people are acting like this is some kind of new information. She can still sing when she has to, like during her Vegas show she sings ‘Lucky’ live because she isn’t dancing her ass off to entertain you people! You haters that don’t appreciate that Britney is an absolute icon in her own right and she has worked her ass off to get where she is.

It isn’t just about that though, thinking about Britney we should think of a bigger picture. She is the American dream and she has been since she was 17 years old. After losing on ‘Star Search’ she was able to become a member of The Mickey Mouse club, but we all know the story. She then became the hottest pop star out there at 16. At 16 years old Britney was every man’s fantasy, a virginal school girl who still acted in a sexual manner even though we were all reminded that she was still virginal. She was one of the first to become a sex symbol at 16, so let’s remember this. From the day most of us were getting out license she was being pushed out onto every stage in malls across America wearing tube tops that showed off her midriff, just enough skin to be sexual but not too much skin because she was still underage.

Let’s fast forward a few years to when ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’ came out. It was here that Britney was officially legal and her management made sure the whole world knew it. It was also when the media started to turn on Britney. Rumors came out about how Britney cheated on her longtime boyfriend Justin Timberlake and he went around promoting it, wearing it as a badge of honor to promote his first solo album while Britney was labeled a ‘slut’ and ‘whore’ by media outlets everywhere.

If you think I am being dramatic please look at how the media handled it. It was all about poor Justin, everyone immediately believed that he had no wrong doing in their breakup.

Now if you really don’t believe me, watching the interview between Britney and Diane Sawyer. She starts to ask Britney about it and when Britney starts to cry, rather than backing up she continues to twist the knife. She continues to ask Britney how she feels. Listen Diane, she is crying I am pretty sure she doesn’t really feel that fucking good. Back up off of her!

How did her camp want to respond to these allegations? Make Britney even sexier. At the MTV Music Awards she came out and made out with Madonna in front of Justin Timberlake. If the world wants to label her whatever, then she was going to be there. Not only did she break the heart of everybody’s favorite boy band member, she was now making out with girls too.

Of course, Britney 2007. Everybody know the downward spiral that the media focused on heavily and made tons of profit off of it. Britney was a new mom to two little boy, she just went through a public divorce, she was clearly going through a lot. Her management was still forcing her to do appearances when in reality, she probably needed a break. Hell she deserved a break. That was no option for her though, money is the motivation and usually it is the motivation for the team rather than the artist.

See when people compare Justin Bieber to Britney Spears, I roll my eyes a bit. Britney had to work to get where she was, and is to this day. Justin Bieber was handed a record contract through YouTube. Britney wasn’t allowed to take any time off whereas Justin took time off and did what he wanted. Whether it was getting arrested in Miami or being at a brothel in Brazil, he did what he wanted. The media also wasn’t do kind to take Britney back after her rough period, Justin went on an apology tour on ‘Ellen’ and he was America’s favorite again. Britney didn’t have any of that luxury. Is it because she is a woman? Who knows, I will just sip my tea and let that sit with you for a moment.

So let’s jump to 2016, Britney has had her own show in Vegas for nearly three years, it always has great attendance, great reviews, and she has her life back. Yes, she is still under the conservatorship where her father has control over her career and money, but she is doing great. I skipped over her going on tour with Nicki Minaj and also being a judge on X-Factor, also having a small appearance on ‘How I Met Your Mother’.

None of that matters though because deep down people are still rooting for Britney to lose. People can’t accept the fact that she has been able to overcome obstacles in her life, in front of the public eye, and she has come out on top.

So most people were ready to watch Britney fail during this performance rather than actually do well.

Most comments talked about how she was lip-syncing the entire performance. Again, she has done this for over 10 years, why we you even surprised? They also said that she looked stiff in her performance. Let me start off by saying that Britney has had two knee surgeries so obviously that will impair anybody’s dancing, even if they are a superior being.

Judging by these gifs though, I don’t know where she looked stiff and unenthusiastic..

So next time you want to talk about how shitty Britney is a performer just remember that’s fine because the world has been against her for a long time now. No wonder why she is always a bit stiff at the start of performances, she is nervous because she knows she will be ripped to shreds.

Appreciate Britney for what she is. An entertainer, a mother, a songwriter, a dancer, a singer, a multi platinum artist, a Grammy winner, and an actress. I could keep going but I think you get my point.

This woman has overcome so many struggles and even though she is famous it doesn’t mean she gets less credit for everything that she has done. She is a woman who has been dragged by the media, by ex-boyfriends, and she still goes on stage with a smile on her face.

God save the princess of pop.

Why Did Everyone Hate Madonna’s Prince Tribute?

Everyone is being so extra salty towards Madonna for her Prince tribute. That’s right, people are ripping apart a performance that Madonna put on for one of her peers who passed away. One of her peers that she was fairly close with from what reports have said. After his tragic death it was reported that Prince and Madonna almost went on tour together but both decided that the world wasn’t ready for the kind of royalty that was going to be on one stage!

Many people were wondering if Madonna had the ability to sing or perform in a way that would honor Prince. Uhm, what? Do these people even hear themselves? Madonna is one of the greatest entertainers of our time, I am pretty sure that she has the chops to perform a tribute to just about anybody!

BET was the first out there to throw out some shade towards Madonna and the award show.

There is no way that you can please everybody but Madonna put her heart into the performance. She lost a friend and she wanted to give him a tribute even though I am sure she knew that there would be plenty of negativity to follow, she just didn’t give a shit. That is why we love Madonna, she doesn’t care what anyone thinks.

One of my favorite posts of the night about the whole Madonna performance had to come from a twitter user named Dexter, it is insanely well put together and thought out.

The backlash against Madonna doing a Prince tribute at Billboard really doesn’t make sense considering the awards are about commercial chart performance. Madonna is the only living peer of Prince’s commercial success and ubiquitous cultural influence.

If you want to argue that any Prince tribute at the Billboard awards is disrespectful because of his disdain for the music industry that makes sense. But being upset that Madonna was chosen to sing in tribute of her peer/collaborator/friend at the Billboard Awards is silly.

All award ceremonies are just celebrations of capitalist success so to assume there is any artistic imperative is an illusion you are buying into to jerk off your own ego. ✌🏻️ @DexforBreakfast

That is all, thank you

Watch Kesha’s Full Performance Of ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’

Let me start off by saying that Kesha did an absolutely incredible cover of this Bob Dylan classic. I feel like so many people have given her crap because of her sing-talk style of music she has always done, but Kesha can sing. Her song ‘Harold Song’ showed off that she has vocals and she can absolutely sing.

As much as I do like the new sound though I do miss the whole sing-talk music that she created. The whole glitter everywhere was my favorite thing in the world but I understand that she wants to try something new, probably break free from what Dr. Luke created for her.

I would say that this was one of the performances of the night. Personally I loved Celine’s that was number one followed by Demi Lovato and then Kesha.

Her reaction to the standing ovation though? It was perfect.

Let me know what you think!

Watch Celine Dion’s Emotional Acceptance Speech At The 2016 Billboard Awards!

Last night Celine was honored with the icon award at the Billboard Music Awards, an award that this strong female vocalist absolutely deserves for her work. She has put out hit after hit, she opened the flood gates by having her own show in Vegas and she is kind. I have truly never heard a bad thing about Celine, I have always heard that she takes time out with fans and has never had much controversy surrounding her. Over the past year she has not only lost her brother but her longtime husband Rene.

Obviously her performance was absolutely flawless, Celine is someone who can command a stage with simply her presence. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she finished and then something happened. Her son was invited out on stage to give her the away and then there definitely wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Celine Dion is more than just an icon she is a true legend and there aren’t many of those left. Artists who demand your attention right when they step on stage, artists that were able to navigate the business before social media which makes it easier for artists and their rise.

The show must go on Celine, and you are doing an incredible job with it.

Watch the emotional moment below.

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.

Check Out Britney Spears Accepting Her Billboard Millennium Award

Before I get into how proud I am of Britney Spears can we talk about that fucking award? Look at that award. What does it look like? I am going to tell you what it looks like. It looks like a fucking vibrator and I don’t know how anyone can hold that and accept it with a straight face.

Now that I have that off my chest, people on social media are absolutely hating on Britney’s performance. If you didn’t know by now that she lipsyncs then I don’t know what to tell you. At the end of the day Britney has always said she was a performer. She has always said that she performs the art that others make. That is something you have to appreciate. As for her dancing? Britney has had two knee surgeries but can still dance better than most people. So shut up, everyone!

Britney stole the show with ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’ and that song is 15 years old. I wonder what current artists will have that kind of staying power.

Congrats Britney, you have overcome a lot, you are a mother of two, have a Vegas show, you have sold well over 100 million albums, VMA Video Vanguard Award, won Grammy’s, and she has been through a very public mental breakdown.

Rihanna Looks Beautiful On The Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet

Rihanna is absolutely breathtaking, there are no words to describe her beauty.

Usually she dresses up in crazy outfits but tonight she decided to go with a more natural look and it worked for her. I do think that she could wear a trash bag and still look beautiful. It’s nice seeing a more natural look though.

Rihanna will be performing at the Billboard Awards tonight! It should be a good one too! Maybe Drake will show up!

Ciara & Russell Wilson Couple Up At The Billboard Music Awards!

Now I have to say, Russell Wilson is a very brave man. Why do you ask? He is wearing a velvet jacket and it is about 80 degrees there, so he must be dying. Also Ciara‘s dress is made out of chains, I believe she said, so he is probably getting a burn letting his hand rest on her lower back. So much bravery.

Ciara absolutely owned the red carpet though. I thought that her make up, her dress, everything was on point. She is hosting the award show tonight so I am sure that she will have many changes through out the night!

This couple is adorable though, right? Easily one of my favorite couples in Hollywood.
