Eminem’s newest music video has just been released. ‘Space Bound’ features porn star (you know her from ‘Entourage’) Sasha Grey. The video shows Eminem strangling his girlfriend before shooting himself in the head.
I about jumped out of my couch in glee when Canada’s rock indie band Arcade Fire won last night for Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards! I absolutely LOVED the album “The Suburbs” one of my favorites of the year, for sure!
Was it surprising that an idie rock band, whose album has sold a mere 400,000 copies. Compare that to Lady Gaga’s “Fame Monster” which sold 5.8 million copies, and Eminem’s “Recovery” which sold 5.7 million.
Is Arcade Fire’s win an upset? Many sites are reporting the win a “shocking” one. Many suspected Lady Gaga’s, Lady Antebellum or Eminem would take home the prize.
After the win, the band tweeted: “OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Thank you EVERYONE.”
What do you think? Who should have taken home the prize for Album of the Year in your opinion?
According to MTV, Britney Spears latest single “Hold It Against Me” is still on the top of the iTunes chart! Not only that – but her latest single is the best lead single of her career!
The accolades keep coming in for Britney Spears‘ huge new single “Hold It Against Me.” It remains on top of the iTunes sales chart, has been played on radio thousands of times in a week and is almost guaranteed to debut at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 this week. That would make “Hold It Against Me” only the 18th single in history to debut on top of the chart, the third in the past 12 months (Eminem’s “Not Afraid” and Ke$ha’s “We R Who We R” also pulled it off) and the second for Spears (her “3″ debuted on top of the chart in 2009). That’s an awful lot of history behind the first single from Spears’ still-untitled seventh album, which could be why the readers of the MTV Newsroom Blog declared “Hold It Against Me” the best lead single of Spears’ career.
PICS: Britney Spears and her beau Jason Trawick headed back home after a session at a studio in Studio City, but first the pair stopped off at Rite Aid in Calabasas for a few items. Britney walked out with a small bag while Jason carried a few larger bags containing Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder, chips and a few other things. Spears has been working hard at the studios for the past couple weeks as she prepares a new video for her latest song “Hold It Against Me” with routine rehearsals.
Rapper Nicki Minaj graces the cover of the latest V Magazine. Nicki lives up to the hype in “The Discovery Issue,” with Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin photographing the birth of a star in her dual-cover (fold-out) issue.
“Everything I do has been approved by me personally. My team is mostly made up of guys, but none of them would ever think about telling me what to wear or what to do with my hair. They know that ultimately I’m gonna do what I’m gonna do.” – Nicki Minaj
During a radio interview last summer in support of Kanye West’s new single, “Monster” – a psych-rap posse track featuring Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and indie-folk singer Bon Iver – West declared Minaj to be “the scariest artist in the game right now – she has the most potential to be the number two rapper of all time.” (Number one, in Kanye’s mind, being Eminem.) Nicki Minaj…the funny face with the Day-Glo wigs, bounteous curves, and multiple personalities? Number two rapper of all time? In-old school hip hop circles the idea could be considered profane.
Now, just in the wake of her debut album, Minaj is deadly serious about not taking it all too seriously. “I’m an entertainer – I like to make people laugh,” she says. “Some will hate it and some will love it, but all will remember it. And that’s what I want: to be remembered. Even if I’m saying something hard-core or controversial, there’s always a touch of humor, and if you don’t like it, it means I’m stirring things up inside of you.” At the same time, there’s a lot going on inside the artist’s own head. “I just always want to do ‘me,’ but ‘me’ changes every day. I would crumble up and die if I had to wake up and be the same person every day. I don’t silence those voices anymore. I just let them speak.”
