This song is definitely starting to grow on me, at first it didn’t do much for me. It wasn’t that I disliked it, I just didn’t care for it.
Now though? Now I could listen to it on repeat, and I probably will. Although Demi scream sings a few times, I am still about it!
One thing I am not about? What is Demi doing hanging out with Wiz and Paris? Don’t get me wrong, I love them both but she is sober! The last thing a good girl needs is to hang out with Paris, just ask Lindsay.
Music video is on point, Demi looks fucking gorgeous as ever. I give this a solid 8 as a music video.
It also makes sense why she was doing house parties around the country, good way to play that up girl
‘Stranger Things‘ is so hot right now. The cast basically took over the Emmys, they have been doing their rounds on late night, it’s like everywhere you turn you see them! I am not complaining though, I am somehow not sick of them yet.
Obviously Wiz Khalifa noticed the nation’s obsession and decided to put out a song over the theme song to ‘Stranger Things’. That is a smart move if you ask me. The song is really good too.
Anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows how much I love JoJo and how I have wanted a comeback for a long time. No really, I have back in 2014 I wrote an article called 5 Reasons Why JoJo Needs To Come Back To Music. If she didn’t get wrapped up in a shitty contact at a young age, she would have had insane success. I won’t get into that though!
She is back, out of the shitty contract and that is all that matters! She is even opening up for Fifth Harmony this summer, so a whole new generation is going to be exposed to this legend.
Now she has released some songs on Itunes and soundcloud but this is her first big single in a while. I mean she was able to get Wiz Khalifa on the track, so that is pretty amazing, right?
I will say that this song has hit written all over it. Wiz is beyond hot and everyone loves JoJo. You talk to any female from the age 23-28 and they will tell you how much ‘Leave Get Out’ changed their lives when they were 12 years old. I know from experience!
Is the war over between Amber and Kim? The bitter social medial feud has been going on ever since Kylie first started to date Tyga. Amber is best friends with Kim’s ex best friend Blac Chyna who now is dating Rob Kardashian and the whole family is mad at that. In reality it is a very tangled web of drama that most likely play out on television anyway.
I was rooting for this to last forever, this Amber calling out the Kardashians for getting famous from a sex tape, looks like it is over though. I mean in reality it was probably all for publicity, there is no doubt about that.
Amber Rose has penned a powerful op-ed for Timemagazine after insults were thrown her way due to a Twitter fight between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. In the series of Tweets that Kanye unleashed yesterday he called out Amber for being a stripper in the past and also decided to bring her son into the battle. That was when Amber decided that enough was enough and she stood up for herself.
Knowing that Twitter wouldn’t be enough she decided to write a powerful piece on how she is treated by people on social media and even by actual media outlets.
Ever since high school, I’ve been called a slut. All the boys were attracted to me—that wasn’t my fault! Then, when I started getting famous, the shaming got even worse. All these messed up stories came out about me, and I was like, “That’s not true! I’m not that kind of girl!” But even things I had done—things a man would never be judged for—got me lots of hate.
After my ex-husband Wiz Khalifa and I got a divorce, I’d go out for a date at a restaurant like any normal single human and people would say, “Man, she’s such a ho. She’s out at restaurants with guys.” Then they would see my ex-husband with a bunch of women. They would say, “He’s the man! That’s so cool.” So when I went on a date, I’m a whore, and when he’s piling girls in a car, he’s the man? There’s something wrong here.
It wasn’t just men saying these types of things. There were a lot of women saying hateful things to me. I was getting torn down constantly. But in the past year, I’ve just started not caring.
People would actually say things like, “Who would ever love you? You were a stripper. Why are you in relationships?” And I used to feel like I had to explain that maybe it was because I’m a good person.
But I realized that I can’t make everyone believe. And I can’t talk to everyone and tell them who I really am. They’re still going to have their own opinions. If you know me, you love me. If you don’t know me, you might love me, but you might not—and that’s cool. And you know what? Now I sleep like a baby at night.
It wasn’t even that hard to stop caring what other people thought. I wasn’t married, and I didn’t have a boyfriend so I didn’t have to care about anyone else’s feelings or protect anyone’s heart. I thought, “This is my life. This is about me. If you don’t like it, I don’t care. I’m going to do anything and everything I want with my own life.”
What I’ve realized is that, when you care too much, you’re not living at your full potential. When you really stop caring about what people say, that’s when you really start living. It’s such an amazing feeling. It’s about loving who you are, owning who you are and knowing that it’s O.K. to live your life how you want to live it. We’re all human, which means we’re not all perfect. It’s so cool to think that I might help women think about who they want to be and then encourage them to be that person with no remorse. I want to help women just be happy in their own skin.
So please: Before you judge someone—especially another woman—put yourself in her shoes and also look at your past. That’s what a lot of women fail to do. They’re so quick to call another girl names, but it’s like: You know what? There may have been a time where you looked back and said, “I probably shouldn’t have done that.” Does that make you a ho? No, it makes you a human.
All that I can say is good for you Amber because it is true. People have tried to drag this woman through the mud for embracing her sexuality. The double standard in this country, and through out the world is truly insane.
Amber I stand behind you with this powerful essay and although there will be backlash, understand that you have been able to truly reach people with your message.
You can’t let people disrespect you and you have to stand up for yourself, remember that.
I love Twitter feuds, they are my all time favorite thing in the world. Grown adults sitting behind a screen thinking about what they could say next to really hurt the other person. It is the way of the world when you are famous. We have had some great ones in the past few months but today Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West went at it because West changed his album title. From what I gather it seems like Wiz was planning on using that title for his next album, so he asks West to change his mind.
So that is how it started, Wiz hadn’t directed any of these to Kanye. Apparently he didn’t need to though. Kanye went in like this.
Odd compliment placement, should Wiz have thanked him right there? Was it going to start being a polite fight? Nope, Kanye was just starting to lose his insanity, get ready.
I don’t know where his first two points were, maybe about his pants. I am not too sure honestly.
Did Kanye just admit to what I have known all along? That he has Napoleon syndrome? I think he did, I am going to take it as he did.
Yes, there is more.
Of course Amber Rose had to get into the fight as well. I mean he did call her out along with her son, so I can see why she would be upset about it. Amber also has a long history if disliking the Kardashian/Jenner clan, including Kanye in that mess.
Kanye then decided that his tempter tantrum was over.
What an emotional roller coaster, am I right? I am also worried that Kanye isn’t mentally stable. He hasn’t been since his mom passed away, that is something that I am sure of.
Amber Rose coming in with that little tidbit of information though, you are a legend.
It has been quite the year for music, that is for sure. Some of the music has been awful while other music has been absolutely incredible. It is crazy to think that 2015 is already almost over! So let’s take a look back on all of the top songs of 2015. Well the top 60 songs, I figured that gave everyone a chance. Basically I looked at the Billboard list, picked what ones I liked, what ones I didn’t and then did my own list. So yes, this list is bias towards my personal feelings about songs and artists.
To add a bit more substance I decided to write a little summary about the song to go along with it! When you get to the end there is a playlist with all of the music videos in case you want to check them out too!
60. Watch Me (Whip/NaeNae) – Silento
Every year there is a song that comes out which makes drunk girls at the club act like they know exactly what they are doing. That is what this song is.
59. Chains- Nick Jonas
Although this song was released in 2014, Nick Jonas wanted to let the whole world know that he was no longer a teenager in a band with his brothers. He is sexual and has an incredible voice all on his own. We get it loud and clear sir.
58. Waves- Miguel
This song should have been on the radio but never ended up on the radio and would have been if The Weeknd didn’t take over.
57. Want To Want Me- Jason Derulo
Jason Derulo gets really sexual. If you were to take a shot every time he says the word “me” in the song, you would be wasted by the second chorus.
56. Kiss You In The Morning – Michael Ray
Easily one of my favorite country songs but unfortunately it didn’t peak as high as other songs on the list. Michael Ray an absolute babe, I am serious, look at him and fall in love, his voice just makes it better.
55. Break Up In A Small Town – Sam Hunt
Let’s be real, everyone who lives in a small town can relate to this. No one wants to pull up to a red light and see their ex next to them. Sam hit the nail on the head with this song.
54. Cecilia And The Satellite – Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness
Andrew wrote this song for his daughter which I thought was the most adorable thing in the world. The only thing is that it took a while to grow on me. For a while I thought it was a humble brag song, but he wrote it to his daughter so that makes it adorable. Plus Andrew McMahon is a genius.
53. Love Me Harder – Ariana Grande ft The Weeknd
I know this song should probably be higher on the list but Ariana Grande is the worst. Her voice is so talented but she seems so awful. It is genuinely hard for me to enjoy her music because of her personality. Anyone else?
52. IDFWU – Big Sean
Oh Big Sean I love you so much and this song is so good to rap when you are angry. I just don’t really like anyone else’s verse. Maybe that says more about me than the actual song but it deserved a spot on the list for sure.
51. Talking Body – Tove Lo
This song is so repetitive it makes me want to punch a wall but it is also so catchy it makes me want to sing while I punch a wall. “Day drunk into the night” is one of my favorite lyrics of the song. This song was a smash hit though but when I was putting together my list it came to me pretty late, so it obviously didn’t make a huge impression.
This song is another one that I kind of hated but also kind of loved. I know that after a few shots when this song would come on I would sing it like it was my own personal anthem.
49. Renegades- X Ambassadors
I have a feeling that they are the new Imagine Dragons, be ready because 2016 they are going to be all over the place, I promise.
48. Stitches – Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes is basically a brunette Justin Bieber but he plays guitar with every song he sings. His voice is a bit chipmunk for me but I could sing along with this song. Maybe when he gets a deeper voice it will all even out.
47. Sorry – Justin Bieber
I don’t understand how everyone thinks that his voice is so much more mature. He literally sounds the exact same, the only difference is that he has a beat behind his music now. Listening to Justin Bieber apologize for 3 minutes isn’t my favorite but out of all of his singles, this is by far the best one.
46. Doing It – Charli XCX ft Rita Ora
If this song wasn’t released in the winter it would have been a huge hit. I swear that Charli and Rita sound incredible but this is more of a summer song than a winter one. Bad timing on the release for this one.
45. FourFiveSeconds – Rihanna & Kanye West & Paul McCartney
Let’s be real, this song made some serious history. Who would have ever thought that the legendary Sir Paul McCartney would be on a track with a hip hop artist and a rapper? I mean I think this song was very underrated because of how different it was. Some how Paul, Rihanna, and Kayne made this song work!
44. Tennesse Whiskey – Chris Stapleton
I understand that everyone is obsessed with Chris Stapleton and for good reason, he is a great artist! I just feel like the music industry is forcing him down our throat a bit. None the less Chris shows off his amazing vocal skills in this song, it is truly awesome.
43. WTF (Where They From) – Missy Elliot
This is just a start of Missy’s comeback so I am excited. Of course this isn’t her best song ever but it is a preview of what is left to come and I am personally very excited.
42. I’m Not The Only One – Sam Smith
Out of the few Sam Smith songs I know this one is by far my favorite. His voice is almost heartbreaking but Dianna Agron is in the music video and she is flawless.
41. Centuries – Fall Out Boy
I swear for the past few years Fall Out Boy just keep reinventing themselves and I absolutely love it. This song was so amazing, a great first single to have off of their album. I prefer this over ‘Uma Thurman’ every day and twice on Sundays.
40. Same Old Love – Selena Gomez
I know that people are going to be upset that this is all the way at 40 but this song is so repetitive it hurts me. I mean Selena sounds great but the song is like seven lyrics and that is it. I prefer a little substance with my music. At least it has a beat I can mindlessly dance to.
39. Try – Colbie Caillat
If you haven’t heard this song stop and go listen to it. I wish I put it in the top ten but it didn’t get the radio plays and it didn’t chart like it should have. Colbie Caillat makes me feel so good about myself, this song is easily one of the most inspirational ones of 2015!
I personally like this song better than ‘Hello’ but it again hasn’t had enough time to become a mega-smash. Give it two weeks and this song will be on every single radio station out there. Also it will make you cry harder than ‘Hello’ did, just a heads up.
37. Alright – Kendrick Lamar
The political undertones of this song are absolutely incredible. This song is probably one of the most powerful songs of the year. I don’t understand why Kendrick doesn’t get the radio play that he deserves. Probably because he has opinions and the media doesn’t like at all. I would recommend watching the video, he is a true visionary.
36. Riptide – Vance Joy
I feel like we have been missing something, I mean John Mayer hasn’t put out music for a while, so Vance Joy stepped up. The chorus is just so easy to sing along to and anyone who sings about being afraid of the dentist is talking some truth. The dentist is the worst.
35. Style – Taylor Swift
I love this song, I can’t even lie but Taylor put out so many good songs this year. ‘Style’ is basically an ode to Harry Styles and their failed relationship. It is a great song don’t get me wrong, just not her best out of the singles she had released.
34. Confident – Demi Lovato
Remember how I talked about repetitive songs this year? Welcome to ‘Confident’ by Demi Lovato. The only thing that saves this song is that Demi is an incredible singer. She could out sing all of the female artists in her age range, that is a fact. Also Demi there is nothing wrong with being confident, don’t worry.
33. IKWYDLS – Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello
Shawn is back on the count down but this time he is with Camila Cabello of Fifth Harmony. Also known as the Beyonce of Fifth Harmony. If you haven’t heard this song go listen to it. I think it showcases Shawn’s voice much better and Camila is flawless, that is all.
32. New Americana – Halsey
I am obsessed with Halsey, her voice is incredible. It is as if Lana Del Rey and Lorde had a love child or something. ‘New Americana’ is probably her weakest song on the album Badlands but it is also the most marketable so I understand why it was chosen as her first single. Seriously if you have a minute go check her out on Spotify then buy her album, she is incredible.
31. Hold On Forever – Rob Thomas
A love song that Rob Thomas wrote about his wife? There is nothing that could possibly be wrong about this song. I have loved Rob since Matchbox 20 and I will continue to love him. This song is beyond sweet and is a great dedication to his wife. It is refreshing to hear a song with actual lyrics. Rob Thomas’ voice is timeless.
30. Die A Happy Man – Thomas Rhett
I want this to be my wedding song. Thomas Rhett is easily one of my favorite country singers of all time. He is still fairly new to the scene but his music is so good. Whenever I listen to this song I get chills. Having barely any music to go along with it so it is just his voice, it is so beautiful. Again it is refreshing to hear a song with thought out lyrics.
29. Marvin Gaye – Charlie Puth ft Meghan Trainor
Can’t even lie I liked this song a lot more before I watched Charlie and Meghan make out at the AMAs. Such a catchy song though, you can’t deny that.
28. Fight Song – Rachel Platten
I have to admit I think if this song wasn’t so insanely overplayed I would love it a lot more. This song has such a great message and I absolutely love Rachel Platten but the radio kind of killed it, plus it was in a bunch of commercials. I do love that so many people struggling can relate to this song though! Sometimes you just have to put your head down and keep going.
27. Should’ve Been Us – Tori Kelly
I am obsessed with Tori Kelly and I am sure that she has a big career ahead of her. Tori is insanely talented and has been doing her thing for the past five years now she is nominated for a Grammy, she is the real deal. Back to the song though, the lyrics “still got a little flame for ya” would absolutely be in my AIM profile.
26. Bad Blood – Taylor Swift ft Kendrick Lamar
I am pretty sure that the video is one of the reasons people got so sick of Taylor Swift this year but I genuinely don’t care. The song is a lot of fun, I think that her squad is pretty hilarious too. Who would have thought that Hailey Williams, Jessica Alba, and Kendrick Lamar would all be in the same video.
25. Trap Queen – Fetty Wap
Pretty sure I am the only person in the world that doesn’t really like this song. I do like to say “hey what’s up hello”, so I guess something good did come from the song. I also learned what a trap queen was, so that is a fun thing to call people now.
24. One Hell Of An Amen – Brantley Gilbert
If you haven’t heard this song I suggest you go and listen to it now. Every time I hear this song I tear up. No seriously, go listen.
23. Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd
Let’s be real, The Weeknd absolutely took over the charts this year, this song being one of the biggest of his songs. I like to think that everyone things that they can sing to this song and also dance to it. This song is allegedly about a love affair with cocaine but hey if it sounds good that’s all that matters!
22. Honey, I’m Good – Andy Grammar
I liked this song the first time I heard it but by the 400th time I had enough. Every year Andy Grammar comes out with a crazy catchy song and this year it was ‘Honey I’m Good’, I wonder what it will be next year.
21. Worth it – Fifth Harmony ft Kid Ink
I wish I could tell my girls of Fifth Harmony that they didn’t need Kid Ink in their song at all. They would have been much better off without him. I am worried because I love this group, they are the best girl group in recent history but there is too much talent. When there is too much talent there is a power struggle which means a break up. It worries me.
20. Drag Me Down – One Direction
Can’t lie once Zayn ditched One Direction I liked their sound so much more. They no longer catered to his voice instead everyone sang, which is a nice change of things. This was their big f u song to Zayn in my opinion. Like hey you left but we can still make great music type of deal.
19. Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding
This song depresses me, I know that is a weird thing to say because it is a love song but Ellie’s voice sounds so helpless. When she sings ‘what are you waiting for’ it just breaks my damn heart.
18. Jealous – Nick Jonas
Yes, another Nick Jonas song because he is so sexual. He wrote this song because he got jealous when guys would check out his then girlfriend. Nick really came into his own this year and I know that 2016 will be an even bigger year. Jonas is better than Bieber, yeah I said it!
17. Apparently – J. Cole
J. Cole is my absolute favorite rapper. He wrote this song for his mom which is a great way to pay respect. I do think it is weird that he rapped about getting dome in a song dedicated to his mom but hey whatever! Seriously though, if he doesn’t win a Grammy this year I am going to riot.
16. Elastic Heart – Sia
This song has by far one of the strangest music videos attached to it but the song is amazing. Sia explained that it was about being so addicted to something bad that it controls your mind. Honestly I am so glad that Sia decided to sing her own songs instead of giving them to other people. I also love that I really don’t know what she looks like, keeps the mystery alive!
15. Hey Mama – David Guetta ft Nicki Minaj
This song simply has a great beat to it, and I can’t it for that. I liked this song better than ‘Anaconda’, that’s for sure. I think Nicki sounds absolutely on point for this song.
14. Good For You – Selena Gomez
I think that everyone had the same exact thought when this song first came out. Damn, Selena Gomez is all grown up.
13. Cool For The Summer – Demi Lovato
My ultimate girl crush Demi Lovato singing about having a lesbian experience, I can deal with that.
12. Take Your Time – Sam Hunt
I genuinely believe this was the biggest country song of the year. I am ready for people to tell me that Sam Hunt isn’t country but guess what, country music recognizes him so you have to as well. Sam was a song writer for a long time but finally he decided to let everyone see his pretty face and listen to his amazing voice. God bless whatever made that decision happy.
11. Blessings – Big Sean ft Drake & Kanye West
Riley Curry sang this is one of Stephen Curry‘s post game interviews, is there anything more that you need? Big Sean goes hard in this song, Drake goes hard on this song, Kanye West is actually rapping not yelling about he is Jesus, so that is always a plus.
10. Lean On – Major Lazer & DJ Snake
Put this song on and you can’t be in a bad mood, that is a fact.
09. Take Me To Church – Hozier
Hozier really did take everyone to church with this song. Apparently this song came out about three years ago but didn’t get big until this year and all I can say to that is finally! Hozier’s voice is so haunting and so amazing I could listen to it all day. I hope we hear a lot from him because he deserves the attention he gets.
08. See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft Charlie Puth
This song broke records for being at number one for so long. It may not have been my favorite of the year but you have to give respect. Wiz and Charlie killed it on this song. Charlie and Wiz actually cowrote the song together and it is nominated for a few Grammys, I hope that they win at least something for this song, it absolutely deserves some love!
07. The Hills – The Weeknd
This was by far my favorite Weeknd song of the year. I mean he is seriously incredible. Right when this song was released it basically went right to number one. There are also two remixes out there featuring Eminem and another featuring Nicki Minaj that you should check out.
06. Hello – Adele
Do I really need to go into detail? This song was released in November and was easily one of the biggest songs of not only the past year but two years maybe? Adele can do no wrong and anything that she sings turns to gold, literally. Gold or platinum, either or, whatever she sings, that’s what it becomes.
05. Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
This is the song that made every girl want Ed Sheeran to be their husband, that’s a fact.
04. Hotline Bling – Drake
Even if you hate this song you still sing along to this song, don’t even lie! Everyone sings along to this song and tries to copy Drake’s impressive dance moves, if you haven’t done it you haven’t lived.
03. Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars
This is the only song I wanted to listen to all summer. It is so different and has such an awesome vibe it almost makes me wish I was born when funk music was at its peak. Bruno Mars can really do no wrong though, he is beyond talented.
02. Blank Space – Taylor Swift
Taylor is out there laughing and making fun of herself because everyone thinks that she is crazy. Then she probably is crazy but is laughing about it so people don’t think she is as crazy. Taylor Swift, you are incredible, please let me join your squad.
01. Shut Up And Dance – Walk The Moon
If you haven’t had a full on dance party to this song are you even living? Please don’t let this band be a one hit wonder but if this is their only hit, they made it a great one.
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.
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.
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.
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
“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!
I don’t know about anyone else but I am strangely attracted to Wiz Khalifa and I think it is because I think he is a nice guy. Sure him and Amber had some words on social media but I just think he is a goofy stoner. Last night though he was a family man and brought his adorable son Sebastian to the Teen Choice Awards.
I will say that Sebastian, or Bash, as Wiz refers to him is one smooth looking two years old. Just crushing it in an all white outfit and nice, vans? Are those vans? I am going to say those might be vans. Wiz forgot his shirt but guess what, that’s cool!
This isn’t Bash’s first red carpet though, kid has already been to the Grammy’s! I am very jealous of this little kid.
Bash and Wiz crushing the red carpet, just a casual Sunday night for the family!
