pitbull-blank-space-remix

Who would’ve guessed that Pitbull was such a Swiftie? Not in a million years for me, but apparently he is and like most radio listeners, he’s a fan of “Blank Space.” So much so, he decided to record an unofficial remix for Taylor Swift’s current smash.

He reveals in the prelude that he was so impressed with the 25-year-old singer’s performance at the American Music Awards which he hosted, he felt compelled to jump on it and add his signature swagger.

Unlike his usual lyrics of downing Fireball or anything partying related, Mr. Worldwide gets a little introspective. Guess T-Swizzle’s songwriting process is rubbing off on him. Check out the remix below which is just essentially Pitbull rapping for about a minute before Taylor’s song kicks in.

barbara-walters-most-fascinating-person

Although she proclaimed last year’s Most Fascinating People special was the last, Barbara Walters returned to ABC Sunday night with a 2014 edition. You can’t keep a good broad down. Not only did the alphabet network resurrect the annual special, but also super-sized it, expanding it to two full hours.

While I enjoy the special, I thought last year’s supposed final list was fitting with Hillary Rodham Clinton as her last ‘Most Fascinating Person.’ The 85-year-old journalist picked the former First Lady as her first back in 1993.

The ten personalities that made the cut this year were Scarlett Johansson, Chelsea Handler, Taylor Swift, Neil Patrick Harris, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Strahan, businessmen Elon Musk and David H. Koch and author George RR Martin. Find out below who the ‘Most Fascinating Person’ is and why Walters chose her.

taylor-swift-1989-song-mashup

As much as I tried to fight it, Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 has won me over. Damn the 24-year-old singer for making such extremely-listenable and catchy tracks. Naturally, since I’m now a fan of the album, I’m inclined to check out anything remotely related to it. Ergo this post.

YouTube star Sam Tsui, along with the guitar skills of Kurt Hugo Schneider, pay homage to the best-selling album by covering all the tracks in an amazing mashup. Astonishingly, they do it all in just a little over three minutes and so seamlessly. Check it out below.

2014-victorias-secret-fashion-show-performances

For the first time ever, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place in London. If this is the quality viewers can expect when the annual extravaganza leaves the United States, I pray producers never head back stateside. The 2014 edition taped at Earl’s Court in the British capital was one of the better ones in recent memory.

From the wings to segment themes, the overall production was stellar. Don’t even get me started on that runway. A-MAZ-ING!!! As much as I love their signature glittered runway, the electronic catwalk was breathtaking.

With regards to music, I much prefer it when the show uses mashups for the models to strut their stuff to instead of live performances. I can see why producers, though, enlist top recording artists. They bring in their fans who don’t typically watch the lingerie fest. With that being said, I enjoyed this year’s group. They were all fantastic and I can’t a pick a favorite one among the bunch.

Taylor Swift took to the stage twice performing “Blank Space” and the television debut of “Style.” Ed Sheeran, Hozier and Ariana Grande also sang while glamazons walked around of them. Speaking of Grande, who sang a medley of her hits, I’m a little bummed that CBS didn’t show the part when the diminutive singer was smacked by one of the VS Angels’ wings. Now, that’s must-see television. Check out all the performances below.

2014-victorias-secret-angels-shake-it-off

One of my favorite television events of the year is only hours away. Tonight on CBS, those leggy genetically-gifted women strut their stuff on the glittered runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I’ll be watching every moment intently.

To promote the extravaganza, the VS Angels lip synced to Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off,” during the fashion show rehearsals in London. This is the second time one of Swift’s singles has gotten the Angel treatment. Last year, they danced to “I Knew You Were Trouble.” In 2012, it was Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beat” and Katy Perry’s “Firework” the year before that.

Watch Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Aldridge and Swift’s BFF Karlie Kloss goof around in the clip below. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS at 10pm December 9, 2014.

57th Annual Grammy Awards Nominations Announced

57th-grammy-awards-nominations

Talk about stretching things out. Those stunt queens over at the Grammys thought it was a good idea to space out the nominations throughout the day. Like the telecast wasn’t long enough ;)

Pharrell Williams and Ed Sheeran (nominees themselves) woke up early to announce the nominations for four categories on CBS This Morning. Then via Twitter, numerous celebrities including Jared Leto, Nancy O’Dell, Mario Lopez, Toni Braxton and Kylie Minogue to name a few, revealed more from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET. All categories have now been revealed with exception to Album of the Year. That will be announced on Friday night during A Very Grammy Christmas airing on CBS.

Come February 8, I think Sam Smith will have a big night. The English singer has several nods to his credits and will no doubt be in the mix for Album of the Year. Others to get some love from the Academy include Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Sia, Katy Perry, Miranda Lambert, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Chris Brown and Meghan Trainor. Check out some of the categories below.

vevo-most-played-videos-2014

At the halfway point of the year, Katy Perry led the pack with the most played music video of 2014. As of November 30, 2014 Katy-patra’s “Dark Horse” clip has been eclipsed. Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX with their Clueless homage passed Perry to take the year end title.

According to VEVO, the “Fancy” clip pulled in more than 380 million views, 140 million of which were in the US alone. The Aussie femcee also makes another appearance on the Top 10 list thanks to her collaboration with Ariana Grande on “Problem.” Overall, the ladies dominated the list by taking the top seven slots. The highest charting man was Rich Gang with “Lifestyle.” Props to Sam Smith for making the cut with his relatively simple clip for his sensational ballad “Stay With Me.”

Check out how Taylor Swift’s shaking, Meghan Trainor and Nicki Minaj butt anthologies fared on the chart below.

American Idol Finds Its Season 14 Mentor

In: Donovan, TV Shows

You may not know his name, but you certainly know his work.

Scott Borchetta is credited with discovering Taylor Swift when she was 14 as he started his label Big Machine. In the past ten years, his Nashville-based label is now the home of major country acts including Florida Georgia Line, The Band Perry, Rascall Flatts, Tim McGraw and Reba McEntire.

The 52-year-old executive has been tapped as the mentor of the fourteenth season of American Idol. He follows in the footsteps of Jimmy Iovine and a recently-departing Randy Jackson.

“There’s only one reason I’m doing this: American Idol has proven again and again that it can launch superstars. I believe that working with these young artists the same way we work with new artists at the Big Machine Label Group will help the next American Idol be as prepared as possible to continue the tradition of creating new superstars,” said Borchetta. “The entire label group will be invested and we look forward to bringing our energy, focus and know-how to help develop this young talent at the highest levels.”

Definitely a change of tune from his words about the FOX reality show back in 2010. At the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, Swift had an off-night with her vocals. He responded at critics by throwing some shade at American Idol which was in its 10th season at the time.
