2009: a Pop Culture Year in Review

Note: Watch this video for a mixtape mash-up of pure pop bliss from 2009.

When I think back on 2009, the first thing I will think of is that it was the most creatively inspiring year of my life.  It’s been a long time since artists seemed to be so excited about their craft and dedicated into putting out work that is interesting, thought-provoking, and daring.  We got Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video, Beyonce evolving into Sasha Fierce, a new slew of young Hollywood actors rebelling against the formula Lindsay Lohan had strewn along, and a surplus of young indie bands releasing some of their most original work yet.

So, come inside for a look back with me and be sure to leave your comments for some of your favorite parts of 2009. Continue reading

Grammy Nominations Are In!!!

The Grammy nominations were announced last night during a Grammy nomination ceremony (gettin’ all classy this year, I see) and to the surprise of no one, the queen, HBIC, fierce independent woman etc Beyonce SASHA FIERCE Knowles took the lead with ten noms.

Overall, I was pretty pleased with the list.  I was a little shocked by the amount of Black Eyed Peas love, but they put out some great party jams so I have no issues.  And apparently, since Gaga couldn’t be nominated for Best New Artist the Grammys compensated and put her in EVERY CATEGORY IMAGINABLE.  Which she deserves.  But what do you guys think?  Was anyone left off?  Anyone you think absolutely has no place on this list?

Either way a big congrats to all the nominees!!

Complete list after the jump!

Gaga and Kanye’s Fame Kills Tour CANCELED

photo1

Bad news for you Lady Gaga fans (and the three of you who still support Kanye West): their sure to be epic Fame Kills tour has been cancelled confirmed via Ticketmaster.

While no reason was given at press time, one can assume it probably had something to do with whispers of Kanye considering going to rehab or possibly not so stellar ticket sales.

Either way it sucks for the fans who spent hundreds of dollars on tickets.

Kelly Clarkson REALLY Hates Kanye West

From her blog, best parts in bold:

Dear Kanye,

What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like shit. Continue reading

Chace Crawford and Katy Perry Are Presenting at the VMAs!!

chace-kate

This makes me so excited!!!  Two of my favorite people ever, Chace Crawford and Katy Perry, have both been lined up to present awards at MTV’S prestigious (ha. ha.) VMA Awards.  Both Katy and Chace participated in last year’s event–Katy performed her hit “I Kissed A Girl” and Chace presented an award with Lauren Conrad. 

What would make this even better is if they presented together. 

Apparently Ne-Yo and Taylor Swift will be performing and Russell Brand will be hosting again (this is kind of shocking since he managed to piss everyone off last year).

Anyone excited for the show this year?

Taylor Swift Brings The Country Thunder

Taylor Swift brought her tour to the 17the Annual Country Thunder music festival in Wisconsin on Thursday night, July 16.

Taylor has alot to look forward to in the next few months including MTV’s Video Music Awards where she’ll be performing. 

“I’m so excited that MTV and the VMAs have invited me to perform, because I think this year’s show will be unlike anything they’ve ever done!” she said.

Taylor already has big ideas for a memorable performance saying, “I love incorporating theatrics into my performances, and the VMAs have always allowed artists to run with that,” she said. “MTV has been so good to me. And I could not be more excited about this year’s VMAs.”
