Selena’s Emotional Concert Performance

Over the weekend, Selena Gomez had a very emotional concert performance that really makes us wonder what is going on behind the scenes. The recently turned 24 year old posted a cryptic letter on Instagram and delivered an emotional message on Saturday night at her concert in Indonesia.

Here is a blurb from the Instagram letter, “Tonight I felt extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both my myself and my music. I’ve never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me…”

While we’re sure she is healthy and will be fine, it’s frustrating to see one of our favorite stars struggle. We hope that Selena can get back on track and start feeling better about herself sooner rather than later.

Looking Back at One Direction

It was six years ago this week that One Direction was formed and girls everywhere lost their minds. The band is currently on hiatus, but we’re not so sure we them back together again with all of the success some of the band members have had.

It started with “Up All Night” in 2011 and it ended with “Made in the A.M.” last year. In between, there were three albums that were all big hits, “Take Me Home,” “Midnight Memories” and “Four.” Can you imagine these five albums garnering 366 nominations? Well, they did and they won 242 of them!

The band did their best at the Teen Choice Awards, winning 27 of the 29 nominations there, but never did win a Grammy. Hopefully after they return from hiatus we’ll see them take home some Grammy hardware.

Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson have brought it since day one with the band while Zayn Malik bolted a year early for his solo career. Needless to say, we hope to see this band back in action before it’s all said and done.

Remembering Amy Winehouse

It was just five years ago, July 23 that we lost one of the greatest singers of our time. Accidental alcohol poisoning was the cause of death as her blood alcohol level was at a jaw dropping number, .412.

Winehouse was an amazing singer was nominated for 66 different awards in her time as a performer. She won 25 of those awards. Her biggest and most impressive wins were her seven Grammy awards (nine nominations).

She was taken too soon from us, dying at the age of 27. She only released two albums, “Frank” and “Back to Black,” both of which were huge hits. Some her greatest songs she released include “Rehab,” “Back to Black,” “Our Day Will Come” and “Tears Dry on Their Own.”

Two Artists Reach 500 Million Milestone

500 million of anything is a whole lot and in the music world it’s one of the bards artists must reach to feel like their song was a monster hit. Who can say that 500 million streams, downloads or views isn’t impressive? Well, two artists have reached this milestone in recent days.

Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” reached 500 million combined streams earlier this week. Spotify users can’t get enough of her music! Who can say that this album wasn’t a huge success for Ariana?

Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” has been out for quite some time now, but it has just now seen its music video hit 500 million views on VEVO. This is a hard milestone to hit! In fact, this is just the first time that a Beyonce music video has reached this mark. Congrats!
