The 2016 Grammy Performers Have Been Announced

The Grammy Awards are right around the corner and now we have the list of the performers for the night! The lineup is pretty stacked too.

Adele is back to perform on stage. She already has ten Grammy’s to her name and I am sure that next year she will add at least another five to that collection. Of course her album ’25’ didn’t make the deadline for this years Grammys.

Kendrick Lamar is the other performer. Last year her sang with Imagine Dragons but this year he is totally on his own. Little Big Town and The Weeknd will round out the night for performances.

Hopefully they have a few more people perform but it should be a good show! Can’t wait to see the winners. If you forget who is nominated check it out here!

58th GRAMMY Award Nominations Have Been Revealed!

grammy noms 640

Can you smell it? It smells like awards season is in the air and I couldn’t be happier about it! I thrive during award season! There is nothing like watching all of these celebrities pretend to smile when they lose awards, that is the best. I love when they stand up and actually cheer for the other person too!

The GRAMMYS are one of the best shows of the year, sometimes. It is the party before the Oscars because those are so boring, when it happens check your Facebook newsfeeds and everyone will talk about how boring it is. Then you have to let them know it has always been boring.

I have done this the past two years so here come my GRAMMY preditions! Fun fact, I am awful at this. For someone who follows entertianment the way that I do you would think I would be better, but I am just not.

Now you have to remember there are always dark horses because people who win at voted by the academy of music or something like that. It isn’t about record sales, remember that Kanye so you don’t rush the stage again.

So here we go, the bold is who I think should win and italics is who will probably win. I know technically that is two predictions but I don’t care!

Also before anyone freaks out about Adele not being nominated, she didn’t make the September 30th deadline. She will be nominated in 2017, I promise.

Album Of The Year:

Sound & Color — Alabama Shakes

To Pimp A Butterfly — Kendrick Lamar

Traveller — Chris Stapleton

1989 — Taylor Swift

Beauty Behind The Madness — The Weeknd

Now listen, I wasnt a bit fan of this album but it is truly an incredible feat for Taylor. She made the complete transformation from country to pop artist so effortlessly and I think that she truly deserves this win.

 

Record Of The Year:

“Really Love” — D’Angelo And The Vanguard

“Uptown Funk” — Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars

“Thinking Out Loud” — Ed Sheeran

“Blank Space” — Taylor Swift

“Can’t Feel My Face” — The Weeknd

Although I think that Bruno Mars desrves this win I genuinely believe that Ed Sheeran will win. Bruno of course is doing something different though, he and Mark Ronson put out one of the hottest songs of the year. The throwback to funk music was incredible, people don’t usually do things like that anymore. They like to stay in their box. Ed’s song was so beautiful though, I mean I feel like it has to win.

Song Of The Year:

“Alright” — Kendrick Duckworth, Mark Anthony Spears & Pharrell Williams, songwriters (Kendrick Lamar)

“Blank Space” — Max Martin, Shellback & Taylor Swift, songwriters (Taylor Swift)

“Girl Crush” — Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna & Liz Rose, songwriters (Little Big Town)

“See You Again” — Andrew Cedar, Justin Franks, Charles Puth & Cameron Thomaz, songwriters (Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth)

“Thinking Out Loud” — Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge, songwriters (Ed Sheeran)

Kendrick has always been a favorite at the GRAMMYS and I genuinely believe that he will win this category. The song “Alright” is easily one of the most powerful songs of the year. Again this is how it is written, this is the award for the song writers. Kendrick deserves this award due to his social realism and his incredible lyrics.

Best New Artist:

Courtney Barnett

James Bay

Sam Hunt

Tori Kelly

Meghan Trainor

I am ahuge Tori Kelly fan and I think that she absolutely deserves this award. She is an incredible songwriter, singer, and performer. I swear when she performs she demands attention and she gets your attention. I mean she stole the VMAs with her performance. The people who win this award are always obscure though, that is why I am guessing James Bay will win.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance:

“Ship To Wreck” — Florence + The Machine

“Sugar” — Maroon 5

“Uptown Funk” — Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars

“Bad Blood” — Taylor Swift Featuring Kendrick Lamar

“See You Again” — Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth

Honestly, as long as Maroon 5 doesn’t win I will be happy. I would love to see Mark and Bruno pull out the win but I think that we will see Wiz and Charlie up there accepting the award.

Best Dance Recording:

“We’re All We Need” — Above & Beyond Featuring Zoë Johnston

“Go” — The Chemical Brothers

“Never Catch Me” — Flying Lotus Featuring Kendrick Lamar

“Runaway (U & I)” — Galantis

“Where Are Ü Now” — Skrillex And Diplo With Justin Bieber

I don’t want Bieber to win but then again I am not sure if Kendrick will be able to take this home. The other songs I am not even sure of. So honestly, anyone could win this and I probably wouldn’t care.

Best Rock Performance:

“Don’t Wanna Fight” — Alabama Shakes

“What Kind Of Man” — Florence + The Machine

“Something From Nothing” — Foo Fighters

“Ex’s & Oh’s” — Elle King

“Moaning Lisa Smile” — Wolf Alice

Critics love Alabama Shakes, which is why I would assume that they are going to win. Florance is an incredible singer though so I hope that she can pull out a win. Like I said before though, critics love Alabama Shakes.

Best Alternative Music Album:

Sound & Color — Alabama Shakes

Vulnicura — Björk

The Waterfall — My Morning Jacket

Currents — Tame Impala

Star Wars — Wilco

Alabama Shakes again, I dont really know the other artists. My Morning Jacket is great but again, I can’t see them beating Alabama Shakes.

Best Urban Contemporary Album:

Ego Death — The Internet

You Should Be Here — Kehlani

Blood — Lianne La Havas

Wildheart  — Miguel

Beauty Behind The Madness — The Weeknd

Although I woud love to see The Weeknd win big here, I think that Miguel will take it. His music is so good, his lyrics are so smooth, and I think that he has what it takes. Hopefully he doesn’t jump over the stage and nearly decapitate a girl when he wins though.

Best Rap Album:

2014 Forest Hills Drive — J. Cole

Compton — Dr. Dre

If Youre Reading This Its Too Late — Drake

To Pimp A Butterfly — Kendrick Lamar

The Pinkprint — Nicki Minaj

If J. Cole doesn’t win I am going to riot, that is all that there is to know. J. Cole is one of the most gifted artists of our time. If he doesn’t win I will write a strongly worded blog directed to the GRAMMYS!

Best Country Album:

Montevallo — Sam Hunt

Pain Killer — Little Big Town

The Blade — Ashley Monroe

Pageant Material — Kacey Musgraves

Traveller — Chris Stapleton

Although I think that it has been Sam Hunt’s year the music industry is really pushing Chris Stapleton down our throats. Don’t get me wrong I think he is incredible! I think that he is great and honestly when it come sto music he is potentially a step ahead of Sam Hunt. I know I said before that this awards show isn’t based on fan popularity which is why I am saying that Chris is going to take it home.

 

 

 

 

So those are the predictions that I have come up with! Yes there are more categories than the ones that I posted but I didn’t know any of the artists!

Let me know what you guys think here!

Can We Talk About Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Music Video?

Yes, I am aware that this video came out over a week ago and I am running a little bit behind on the whole thing. I get it, I get it. You all wanted Willi’s opinion and now you are going to get it!

Thank fucking God that they brought in Kendrick Lamar because he brought this song brand new life! This is easily one of the best remixes that I have ever heard in my life. All of the cameos? How perfect is this shit? I mean ugh, it really couldn’t be any better. I didn’t know some of the younger models but hey, that just means I am old. I can deal with that!

Band aids don’t fix bullet holes baby.

Grammys 2015 – Complete Nominations List

As many people know, the Grammy’s are the biggest night in music and they are being held tonight! I personally can’t wait to watch the red carpet and see some of the catastrophes. I believe that Katy Perry will have something weird on, just a weird prediction. Taylor Swift will wear either a dark blue or a white, and then Justin Bieber will not even be there. Some of my predictions.

Last year I put together a list of who I wanted to win, who I thought was going to win, and who actually won. So right now I will pot all of the nominations, and predict who will win verse who I want to win! The bold will be who I think will win, and the italics will be who I want to win. Last year I did terrible, here’s to hoping I do better this year!

I also didn’t post every category because I know nothing about Latin music, contemporary music, or anything like that, sorry guys.

Album of the Year:
Beyonce: Beyonce
Pharrell: Girl
Ed Sheeran: X
Beck: Morning Phase
Sam Smith: In the Lonely Hour

I love Ed, I think that Ed deserves to win every single award that he is up for but the Grammy’s really love Pharrell. So my pick would be for Ed but I think that Pharrell will win for some strange reason.

Record of the Year:
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Meghan Trainor, “All About That Bass”

I have a weird soft spot for Meghan Trainor, I truly believe that she is incredible talented. I think that her sophomore album will probably show more of that than her most recent one. She can sing and will blow people’s minds one day. Sia will probably win though because her voice is insane and “Chandelier” is a really incredible song. So if either win I will be extremely happy.

Song of the Year
Meghan Trainor – “All About That Bass”
Sia – “Chandelier”
Taylor Swift – “Shake It Off”
Sam Smith – “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Hozier – “Take Me to Church”

Hozier will most likely not win, I am aware of that but his voice is absolutely insane. I love ‘Take Me To Church” so much I would listen to that and “Uptown Funk” on repeat for days. I am giving this one to Sia though. Honestly, I don’t care who wins this category because I like them all, I just hope Sam Smith doesn’t take it home, can’t stand him.

Best New Artist
Bastille
Iggy Azalea
Brandy Clark
HAIM
Sam Smith

Can’t lie I am not a huge Iggy fan of Iggy’s music but she deserves to win. She has dealt with people hating on her for absolutely no reason other than the fact she is a white, female rapper from Australia. I must say that I do like her during interviews so she seems fun.

Best Pop Vocal Album
Coldplay, Ghost Stories
Miley Cyrus, Bangerz
Ariana Grande, My Everything
Katy Perry, Prism
Ed Sheeran, x
Sam Smith, In the Lonely Hour

Alright, so I love Bangerz, I think that album was off the chain weird and incredible. Some of Miley’s songs were so heartfelt and incredible, can’t get it enough of it. Do I think the Miley has all the votes to win it? No, probably not, but she was nominated so that is awesome. I think that Sam Smith is going to win because everyone is obsessed with him, I personally hope he fades out after this Grammy hooplah ends.

Best Pop Solo Performance
John Legend, “All of Me (Live Version)”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Pharrell Williams, “Happy”

John Legend deserves this award, the end.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Coldplay, “A Sky Full of Stars”
A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, “Say Something”
Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang”
Katy Perry feat. Juicy J, “Dark Horse”

I feel like this is going to Iggy’s year to win all the awards, unless she is against Sam Smith then he will win over her. I will say that “Say Something” deserves this Grammy. That song is the saddest song in the world. I could be in the best mood, hear it and then start to cry. That is what music is about right? It is supposed to move you to your core. So I am really rooting that A Great Big World will pull this one off!

Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Cheek to Cheek
Annie Lennox, Nostalgia
Barry Manilow, Night Songs
Johnny Mathis, Sending You a Little Christmas
Barbra Streisand, Partners

I an completely educated in this department. I know Babs is incredible so she will probably win but I love Annie Lennox’s voice, so I am hoping that she wins!

Best Country Album:
Dierks Bentley, Riser
Eric Church, The Outsiders
Lee Ann Womack, The Way I’m Living
Brandy Clark, 12 Stories
Miranda Lambert, Platinum

If Miranda doesn’t win this category I am going to start a riot. Just be prepared for that.

Best Country Solo Performance
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Hunter Hayes, “Invisible”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Carrie Underwood, “Something in the Water”
Keith Urban, “Cop Car”

Carrie Underwood deserves this award, she could out sing everyone in this category but my only worry is people against religion. You know she is a very religious woman, the song is extremely religious, I feel like a lot of people would shy away because apparently its controversial. Miranda, you got this one in the bag…I would kind of love Eric Church to win though, I love his music. Honestly, whoever wins this I would be happy!

Best Country Duo/Group Performance
The Band Perry, “Gentle On My Mind”
Miranda Lambert with Carrie Underwood, “Somethin’ Bad”
Little Big Town, “Day Drinking”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”
Keith Urban feat. Eric Church, “Raise ‘Em Up”

Miranda and Carrie better win, or again I am going to riot.

Best Country Song
Kenny Chesney, “American Kids”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Glen Campbell, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”

So I really love the Eric Church song “Give Me Back My Hometown” I feel like a lot of people can relate to it. Tim McGraw is basically a country king so I think that he will take this one home.

Best Urban Contemporary Album:
Jhene Aiko, Sail Out
Beyonce, Beyonce
Chris Brown, X
Mali Music, Mail Is
Pharrell Williams, G I R L

I am saying Pharrell will take this one home. Anyone could win other than Chris Brown. Remember that time Chris Brown beat Rihanna before the Grammy’s then wasn’t allowed there for like three years? Yeah, I do too, fuck Chris Brown.

Best R&B Performance
Beyonce feat. JAY Z, “Drunk in Love”
Chris Brown feat. Usher & Rick Ross, “New Flame”
Jennifer Hudson feat. R. Kelly, “It’s Your World”
Ledisi, “Like This”
Usher, “Good Kisser”

I hated this song but I don’t like any other songs nominated. I mean I guess I hate this song the least out of all of them. I would love to see Usher win but “Good Kisser” was a truly horrible song.

Best Rock Song
Paramore, “Ain’t It Fun”
Beck, “Blue Moon”
The Black Keys, “Fever”
Ryan Adams, “Gimme Something Good”
Jack White, “Lazaretto”

Paramore deserves this! They are a band that went from having a generally small following to being one of the biggest bands in the world. Hayley Williams is perfect, and this song was everywhere. Good luck Paramore!

Best Rap Album
Eminem, The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Childish Gambino, Because the Internet
Iggy Azalea, The New Classic
Common, Nobody’s Smiling
Schoolboy Q, Oxymoron
Wiz Khalifa, Black Hollywood

I would say Eminem deserves to win this but his new music is absolutely horrible, terrible, no good music. Childish Gambino has a very different way about him so I respect his originality. Iggy will win this though and everyone is going to lose their minds.

Best Rap Solo Performance
Childish Gambino – “3005″
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”
Eminem – “Rap God”
Kendrick Lamar “i”
Lecrae – “All I Need Is You”

I love Kendrick Lamar, I am all in with him on this one.

Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
Common Featuring Jhené Aiko, “Blak Majik”
Eminem feat. Rihanna, “The Monster
I Love Makonnen feat. Drake, “Tuesday”
Schoolboy Q feat. BJ The Chicago Kid, “Studio”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″

Eminem and Rihanna is always gold, Common could win it though, I could see him winning this. If Bound 2 wins I am going to die laughing though. Go Ri though, Rihanna is my girl!

Best Rap Song
Nicki Minaj, “Anaconda”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″
Kendrick Lamar, “I”
Wiz Khalifa, “We Dem Boyz”
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”

I am rooting for Nicki Minaj just because that song is so weird and bizarre, I like weird and bizarre. Kendrick should win though, I really hope that he does.

How Does Taylor Swift Celebrate Selling 1.3 Million Albums?

Featured Image

How does Taylor celebrate selling 1.3 million albums in one week? Well she turns up Kendrick Lamar and films herself rapping like any good pop star would do! Now I am not a huge fan of her latest music but I am a pretty big fan of Taylor in general. I think she is pretty awesome, can’t even lie about that. She takes time for her fans, she takes time to rap Kendrick Lamar, she is a horrible dancer and knows it. Things like that I can appreciate and forger that she made one of the worst albums I have ever heard. Clearly it doesn’t matter since me and 1.3 million others bought it!

You go T.Swift

GQ Men of the Year 2013

Image

GQ is one of those magazines that I honestly do not pay much attention to. I feel like they want straight men to read it and use their helpful fashion tips but I don’t think that actually happens. Maybe it does, fuck if I know! Anyway they recently made a top 5 of the men of the year and here you have it.

Matthew McConaughey, Will Ferrell, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar, and James Gandolfini

First off I will say that I am 300% behind making James Gandolfini one of the men of the year. He pretty much changed television as Tony Soprano and from what everyone says he was an awesome guy. Great actor+awesome guy+ died too soon= GQ man of the year.
Justin Timberlake is also an obvious shoe in for this man of the year award. In the magazine he kind of sounds like a dick saying that he will never give up on acting and gets mad when people say his movies bomb…because they do…Other than that though he deserves it. Growing up I was always a BSB fan but lets be real Justin Timberlake is quickly taking Michael Jackson’s spot at king of pop since he is constantly reinventing himself and the music he sings.
Kendrick Lamar is an alright choice, I don’t really know too much about him but I have heard his music and it is good. He also called out every rapper ever so he has some balls even though he stands at like 5’2.
Will Ferrell- This one I don’t understand, then again I have never understood the whole love of Will Ferrell, he is alright in my opinion but plays the same character in every movie. He is coming out with Anchorman 2 and everyone is getting their panties in a bunch so it makes yet again, I get why they put him on the cover. Having him as himself and as Ron Burgendy is also a genius idea.
Matthew McConaughey, I fucking hate this choice. I cannot stand Matthew McConaughey and I haven’t for years now. I get it you have a weird stoner like southern drawl but why in the fuck is he on this cover? If it is because he didn’t make a sequel to Fool’s Gold then sign me up. Maybe it was because he lost all that weight for some movie that is coming out soon. Whatever it is, he shouldn’t be on this cover. Just sayin’.
