Taylor Swift’s New Gaming App

Taylor Swift is joining the likes of many female stars to have their very own gaming app. Swift has released an app in the past, and in fact, that app won an Emmy in 2015. This gaming app doesn’t have a release date, but is expected by the end of 2016.

The gaming app is to be developed by Glu Mobile, the same company that worked on Kim Kardashian’s app in the past. With the news of this collaboration, Glu Mobile’s stock saw an increase by 26% just hours later. Quite impressive.

Other female stars to release gaming apps include Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj.

Shawn Mendes Up for Four Junos

The Junos are occurring April 3 in Calgary, Alberta, and many big Canadian stars will be at the event. This award show is commonly compared to the Grammys in America, so this is a very huge deal in the Canadian music industry.

One star performer who is having a huge deal of success lately is Shawn Mendes. He’s up for four awards by the time April rolls around, and we think he has a good shot at taking some hardware home.

The list of awards Mendes is up for includes the following: Juno Fan’s Choice Award, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, and the Pop Album of the Year.

The Weeknd leads the nominees with seven nominations while Justin Bieber had five nominations.

Lady Gaga to Perform at NFL’s Big Game

Every season, the NFL caps off the year with their championship game. The game is not just about the two teams on the field though. The media go crazy, the music is amazing, and the commercials (we hope) are even better. Just recently, it has been announced that Lady Gaga will perform the National Anthem before the game. She’ll be joined by Coldplay and Beyoncé, who will be doing the half time show, as other performers on the schedule.

Lady Gaga has been incredibly busy lately, and has an even bigger month ahead of her. She’s lined up to perform before the big game, and during the Oscars and Grammys!
