Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s Side to Side

It was just the other day that we talked about Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s upcoming music video release and it is finally here. It all began though on Sunday night. That was the night that the MTV VMAs were shown live on MTV and that was also the night that they played it live.

The song was a great one and captured the audience right off the bat. How impressive was it that Ariana was signing while riding a bike?! Donning plenty of pink, the two rocked the crowd for us all to see.

Make sure to take a look at the video of the performance from the award show here.

Beyonce and Rihanna Are Special Company

With the MTV VMAs complete, we have ourselves one amazing stat that we are just in awe over. We saw Beyonce join an elite group of artists that is so elite she’s just the second member of it. Beyonce joined Rihanna as the only other artist to win the Video of the Year award at the MTV VMAs ever!

Beyonce won the award this year because of the music video for “Formation,” which is just as powerful a song as it is a music video. She also won this award in 2009 for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”

Rihanna won this award in 2007 and 2012 for her hit music videos “Umbrella” and “We Found Love.”

A huge congratulations to Beyonce for accomplishing this feat and we look forward to more from this talented artist.

Justin Bieber’s Instagram Re-Boot a False Alarm

It’s only been a week or two, but people are already missing Justin Bieber’s Instagram page. He got rid of this specific social media account because of hateful messages towards people he cares about and has held firm on it since he got rid of it. Monday, people thought they had seen the return of his Instagram page, but unfortunately this was not the case.

His page appeared live again with a few posts removed, but he did not post anything. Then all of a sudden the page was gone again and he tweeted out a message explaining himself. In that tweet, Justin said, “ Still no Instagram it was an accident.”

Well, we’re patiently waiting for the return of this account because we need as many ways as possible to follow our favorites artists. Until then, we’ll have to make do with what we have!

Remembering the Great Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson left us way too early, passing away on June 25 of 2009. It’s this week 58 years ago though that he was born and we want to celebrate that moment in time. If it weren’t for his birth, we would have missed out on one of the most inspirational and impactful artists ever.

Michael started with the Jackson 5, all members of his family and graduated to a solo career that could easily be considered second to none. How about his album, “Thriller,” which is considered the best-selling album of all time? That album sold about 65 million copies!

Can you imagine a world without some of his other albums? “Off the Wall,” “Bad,” Dangerous” and “HIStory” are also considered some of the greatest albums ever and they were all done by this one man.

He was more than an artist though. Like Prince and only a select few others, Michael Jackson was an entertainer. He was a performer. He was one of the greatest.
