The 56th Grammy Awards is next week, so it’s time for some predictions. We begin with Best New Artist, a category that was previously won by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, and Lauryn Hill.
Disclosure’s latest music video is a doozy.
Colbie Caillat has new music out, and it’s very different from what she has released in the past.
Columbian pop superstar Shakira brings the reggaeton flavour in her latest single, “Can’t Remember to Forget You.”
UK pop star Katy B recently covered
Mumford & Son One Direction’s big hit “Story of My Life.” The “Crying For No Reason” singer was visiting the British radio show In:Demand to promote her upcoming album, Little Red.
Earlier this week, Lady Gaga released an open letter to her fans on LittleMonsters.com explaining the delay in the release of the “Do What U Want” video. In the letter, Mother Monster not only apologized for the late video, she also casted blame on the underwhelming performance of ARTPOP so far.
“Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result,” the self-professed Goddess of Love wrote. “Millions of dollars are not enough for some people.”
Lady Gaga ended on an optimistic note, adding, “Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am, let me show you the visions that have been in my mind for two years.”
This got me thinking—is ARTPOP salvagable? It’s not like it’s selling terribly. It already crossed the 500,000 mark in sales in December. But compared to her peers—in particular, Katy Perry with PRISM and Beyoncé with her visual album—and, more importantly, compared to the Born This Way era, Lady Gaga is not exactly slaying the competition this time.
