The American Music Awards (AMAs) pays tribute to today’s most influential and iconic artists. This year’s show was broadcasted live from the Nokia Theater L.A. on November 24th, 2013.
8:00 PM: Katy Perry’s Geisha-inspired performance of “Unconditonally” doesn’t make sense and is probably culturally insensitive. At least she’s singing live?
Taylor Swift takes a page from Rihanna in her new video “I Knew You Were Trouble,” but the result isn’t quite amazing.
It’s no secret that I am not a fan of Taylor Swift’s Red lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Thankfully, not everything from Taylor’s new album is some catchy-but-unbearable pop track because “Begin Again” is actually nice. The single sees Taylor Swift getting back to her country-folksy roots. featuring instrumentation that is more along the veins of her past hit “White Horse.”
Let me start off by saying that I’m out of the loop with this whole Hunger Games phenomenon. As of today, I still haven’t seen the movie or read any of the books. I have a vague idea of what the movie is all about, but for the most part, I don’t count myself a fan.
By accident though, I heard “Safe and Sound”, Taylor Swift‘s collaboration with The Civil Wars and the soundtrack’s official first single. Although I like Taylor Swift, I was surprised by how much I liked “Safe and Sound”. The song piqued my interest and I downloaded the album.
