The diva once again ruled the music haystack, adding four more ACM Awards to her mantle, including Female Vocalist, Album of the Year for ‘Platinum’ and Single of the Year for “Automatic.” Crooners Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan also one big, with Bryan taking home the award for Entertainer of the Year and Aldean lasso’ing in the Male Vocalist trophy. For all things ACM’s, including what was up with all those “wtf?” camera direction moments, check this out. Also, which performance was the most Shazam’d of the night? (You know, that app when you have those “what the f#$k is that song?” moments.) It was Little Big Town’s controversial song, “Girl Crush,” which is now sitting pretty at #2 on the iTunes singles chart…
2.You ‘Must Listen’ to this dreamy Sia/Giorgio Moroder track…
Do we have to say anything? To get lost in the disco ball humped number, as well as scoop up all the dish from the legendary Giorgio’s first album in 30 (!) years, 74 is the New 24,’ which is set to hit headphones everywhere on June 16th, go right here…now.
3.26 years ago this week, Madonna’s ‘Like a Prayer’ hit #1 on the charts….
On the Billboard chart dated April 22nd, 1989, Madonna epic music church opus, “Like a Prayer,” began its three week reign on top of the Billboard singles chart. Madge’s tune was certainly the talk of the music town back then, with its booming gospel hook and accompanying video that caused just a teensy bit of controversy. We all know it…and still live for it. Classic Madonna at her very best…
In other Madge news, Ms. Material Momma got quite a thrashing from Lin-Manuel Miranda, star and author of ‘Hamilton,’ and also not allowing her backstage after the show. Why you ask? You’ll have to go right here to find out…it’s quite juicy.
4.Twist it up to this stoner playlist for all of your 4/20 festivities…..
There’s many reasons to love Billboard magazine, but today they’ve out done themselves by posting a smoked out playlist of stoner jams, since today is the much loved and passed around holiday of 4/20. (we ALL know what it’s about). The blazing list includes classic pass-the-dutch cuts including Afroman’s “Because I Got High,” Tom Petty’s “You Don’t Know it Feels,” and Method Man and Redman’s classic joint, “How High.” There’s a lot more, but Philly Mixtape lost count, man. Go right here for the rest. Meanwhile, Missy’s “Pass That Dutch” is just what we’re doing right now!
5. Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus celebrate 4/20….in a most Joe Jonas way!
Oh, Demi and Miley, what are we going to do with you two gals? First, there’s Miley who celebrated the beloved stoner holiday in her….Joan Jett pasties? (Google it…we have an image here…) Then there’s also Miley’s bestie Demi Lovato, who posted THIS picture of her, Miley and Joe Jonas, with the message, “In honor of our former escapades, I’d thought you’d like this to remember your first blaze.” To check out the pic, take a hit and go here.
6.R.I.P Ariana Grande and Big Sean….
