March 23rd, 2015 9:55pm EDT
Jimmy Fallon and Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Friday night, making her first ever talk show appearance to actually talk instead of perform.

The former Nickelodeon star, who made a name for herself with a breakout music career in 2014, said that she was "so nervous" for her first talk show interview.

"I don't speak... It's my first time speaking in front of people," she said, "I've never spoken on -- I've never 'talked' on a talk show... I feel vulnerable."

The sure highlight of Ariana's appearance was her impression of Canadian singer Celine Dion, and the 21-year-old nailed her...

Ariana Grande Trips And Falls (Watch)

Ariana Grande Trips And Falls During Toronto Concert (Watch)
It's official: we need to ban all stairs from live shows, forever. First, Madonna crashed down a flight of 'em in an elaborate cape twirl gone wrong. Now, Ariana Grande's done the same thing. Well, kinda.

On Sunday, the pop singer was performing in Toronto, and during the middle of a rendition of "Bang Bang," Grande tried to spring onto a small platform onstage. Only, she tripped, landed on her knees, and skidded for a foot or two.

A fall like that looks pretty painful, but Grande just shrugged it off.

First a moment of what the hell just happened?

Then, a laugh.

Then she's on her fee...

Grammy Awards Red Carpet Fashion - The Best & Worst

February 9th, 2015 8:51am EST
The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2015 Grammy Awards
Fashion at the Grammy Awards is always entertaining. It's a chance for celebs to have a little fun with their style without being constrained by the "rules" often dictated by more formal award shows.

The stars came out in full force at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday night. Miley Cyrus toned down her usual "look at me" style by donning a Alexandre Vauthier LBD. Yes, she bared some skin, but she looked sexy, not over the top.

Rihanna also impressed in a strapless, cotton candy pink Giambattista Valli gown. The dress was ginormous, but she made it work.

Taylor Swift's smash hit "Shake It Off" has only been playing on the radio for about a third of 2014 because of its August release, and it still saw enough airtime for us to say, "enough already!"

Sure, the song has a catchy beat and proves that Swift's crossover from country to pop music is nothing short of a success, but three-to-four times a day for months straight is enough to drive us mad!

Actuality, "Shake It Off" is one of two songs on this list that we really love, but it's time to slow down with the number of plays, radio stations across America!

After the sweep, Bieber lost nearly 15 percent of his followers, more than 3.5 million. On the upside, Kim Kardashian only lost 1.3 million followers with a grand total of 22 million to the Biebs 20 million.

Biggest Breakthrough Musicians Of 2014

In the case of musicians in 2014, whether it’s fair or not, some crashed and burned, while others excelled. Excelling doesn’t mean that the respective musician sold a lot of albums (few did), but it does mean these artists established their brand, making a name for themselves. Here are the biggest breakthrough musicians of 2014.

Unsurprisingly, Ariana Grande scored the second #1 album of her short recording career with My Everything. My Everything opened impressively selling 169,000 copies, trumping the opening sales of 2013 effort, Yours Truly (138,000 copies). 169,000 copies is robust by today’s standards by all means, but had My Everything came out a couple of years ago, think about how many hundred thousands of copies it might’ve sold. To quote Mary J. Blige (at least partially), “Reminisce on the” sales of the past…

Review: Ariana Grande Shines Vocally on ‘My Everything’

On Ariana Grande’s sophomore album My Everything, things feel different from her debut Yours Truly from 2013. The voice still soars commandingly – there’s no difference there – but My Everything has more of the feel of a big pop album. Sure Yours Truly had some exceptional records itself and blended pop and R&B sensibilities much like this album, but My Everything feels as if Grande has better established her niche and is flexing.

My Everything is a solid second effort from Grande, feeling like the right album for the right time. That said, the album itself, while good, is by no means...
