Did you watch the Billboard Music Awards last night? Most importantly, did you see what Miley Cyrus was wearing? She was wearing some open blazer with no pants. Yes, we get it. You’re all grown up.
But Miley’s lack of clothing wasn’t the big news of the night. Surprise, surprise. Adele was the big winner of the night. She took home 12 trophies! LMFAO finished in a very distant second with 6 wins, and Coldplay and Lil Wayne both walked away with four trophies.
Beyonce credits her beauty on motherhood. She said, “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.” She also mentioned that the word ‘love’ means something different to her now that she has Blue Ivy. Aww, mommy’s gushing!
She did have to beat out some hard contenders for the title though. She beat out Sofia Vergara, Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Lawrence, Adele, Megan Fox, Kate Middleton, Julia Roberts and Paris Jackson (Michael Jackson’s 14 year old daughter) for the title of the most beautiful.
Do you agree with People’s choice? Is Bey the most beautiful or should someone else have been given the title? Check out what Bey had to say about being the most beautiful below!
According to Billboard magazine’s Music’s Top 40 earners , Taylor is the winner for 2012. She earned $35.7 million last year, including $88.5mil in her U.S. tour alone.
And since Swifty writes her own songs, she gets a big chunk of the songwriting royalties as well.
U2 came in behind her, earning $32.1 last year. Lady Gaga is the 4th highest earner, with $25.3 mil and Adele came in at the 10th spot, earning $13 mil. Other notable contenders- the “Glee” cast came in at #11 with $12.5 million, Katy Perry hit #14 ($11.9 million), Britney Spears at #16 ($10 million) and Rihanna made it to #22 with $7.6 million.
Are you surprised that Taylor is the top earner of this year?
Rihanna stopped by The Jonathon Ross Show in the UK to talk about her budding acting career and her domination in the music industry.
Rihanna answered, “It will always be a competition and that’s why I feel like women are becoming so dominant in music right now because we’re very competitive beings and we cannot stand to see another woman do better than us. As much as men have egos, our egos are a little bigger, we’re just a lot better at hiding them.”
And as far as her movie career, she’s really hoping her role in Battleship will help prove herself as a serious thespian.
But she didn’t stop by to just talk that talk. She also did her first televised performance of her single Talk that Talk. Watch her performance and the whole interview below. What do you think of Ri-Ri’s show? WATCH IT NOW!
Adele swept the Grammys and the Brit awards. She’s still breaking record charts and she’s the first artist to go double-platinum on iTunes. But despite all of her success, some people are having a hard time overlooking her weight.
Jennifer Hudson approached Adele backstage at the Grammys to congratulate her on her wins, but she started offering some fat girl advice. She told Adele, “I used to be heavy just like you and gosh, Weight Watchers saved my life! I can hook you up.”
Adele couldn’t believe her audacity and just told her that she is content at 165 and doesn’t plan on dieting. Friends say that Jennifer’s heart is in the right place, but she has become too preachy since losing all that weight.
