Some of this is really surprising. I for one am just floored that Chris Brown wasn’t even in the top 10. That just goes to show you the power of a few chickenheads on Twitter being fervently #TeamBreezy and putting up with his ridiculousness.
I agree with most of this, even though the order is all wrong.
I need to know who is still bankrolling Kelly Rowland’s music career because she ain’t had an actual hit since Nelly was still wearing Band-Aids on his face.
Kelly Rowland “Kisses Down Low”
I can’t figure out who’s paying for it, but I’m glad somebody is still footing these bills for videos to nowhere because I am securely in Kelly’s corner. Her last album actually had some really amazing tracks on it, but I’m not quite sure this lives up. It’s okay, but I’m just over these super-explicit R&B songs. Kisses Down Low…nobody could find anything more creative to say than that? Might as well just name the song Please Perform Cunnilingus. At least she had the sense to keep the styling cute and not slutty with all of those Basic Bird lyrics. Not all of the looks work — especially that haircut from “Stole” — but she is loving those implants, yes ma’am. Overall, I call it a success for Kelly, even if she did steal that runway from some old warehouse with props from Toni Braxton’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough.”
The Grammys finally got a lot of things right this year.
Hunter Hayes broke out as country’s answer to Lauryn Hill, writing, producing, and playing all of the instruments on his debut at 20 years old. Tamia managed to score two nominations for her last album that slipped in under the radar. Carrie Underwood’s best single ever scored a couple of nominations, and Kelly Clarkson’s most consistent album got some love too. Frank Ocean, Gotye and fun. all came away with nominations of course, and Carly Rae won’t be as omnipresent at the ceremony as she was on radio this year. Biggest shocker: SWV got nominated for their reunion effort! Most obvious snub is definitely Adam Lambert who had one of the best pop albums in recent memory with vocal chops to match. Also, Nicki Minaj was deservedly shut out of the nominations.
I love pictures of Taylor Swift singing, especially when she is really into it. Like, she really thought she was doing big things in this picture, trying to give people goosebumps and stuff.
Taylor Swift’s new album is called “Red,” but its true color is a brilliant platinum. The 22-year-old sold 1.2 million copies of her latest album in its first week – the largest sales week for any album in a decade.
