Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Adele lead in nominations for the Billboard Music Awards, which will be held in Vegas on May 20th.
But is anyone surprised? Glad to see some powerful female artists at the top of their game!
Adele has been nominated in 18 categories: Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Artist and more. And of course, hit single “Rolling in the Deep” is up for awards in seven categories. Rihanna is at her heels, nominated for 13 nominations at the awards, while Lady Gaga garnered 10 nominations.
Those are the big lady nominees, but also up for awards are Lil’ Wayne in 10 categories and LMFAO in 17 categories. Not bad, gentlemen- but I have a feeling these ladies will steal the show!

She isn’t? OH wait, she isn’t! And Nicki Minaj wants everyone to know that her and Lady Gaga are very different than one another, and very talented in their own ways.
Minaj tells Nightline:
“First of all, I’m a rapper. I’m from south Jamaica, Queens. What are the similarities?… Wigs? Every female in this game wears wigs. Over-the-top costumes? Ehh. Try again. It’s getting tired now though, to me. In the beginning I was like, okay, it’s cool, hahaha, when they get to know me they’ll understand me. Gaga is a fantastic artist. She’s paved her way. She’s opened her own lane. But I feel like I have my own lane. And we never cross, ever!”
Eloquently stated…Though I can think of some similarities: individualistic, musical and wildly successful!

Taylor Swift ranked at the top of Billboard’s Top 40 Money Makers in a list released today. Taylor came in at #1 with $35,719,000!
After wrapping the final leg of her Fearless tour, Taylor Swift’s blockbuster success two years ago left music industry observers wondering what she could possibly do for an encore. The pop-country superstar answered them with her smash Speak Now album and accompanying tour, which jetted through Asia and Europe in addition to making its way across North America. Grossing $88.5 million in the U.S. alone, the tour netted Swift a remarkable $29.8 million. Honored as Billboard’s Woman of the Year in December, she racked up U.S. album sales of 1.8 million units last year-led by booming business for late 2010’s Speak Now, which sold 967,000 units and digital single track sales of 7.8 million. Songwriting royalties were another highly beneficial source of income, given that Swift wrote all 14 Speak Now tunes herself.
See the rest of the list after the jump! (more…)
