Rebecca Black
Rebecca Black is back with a new song and a new video.

It's been two-and-a-half years since she released viral hit "Friday," and she took to her YouTube page the day after Thanksgiving (aka "Black Friday" -- get it?) to watch the video for the first time in a long while.

2012 Grammy Awards
The 2012 Grammy Awards will forever be remembered for one reason: the event took place the night after the music industry lost one of their biggest stars in an untimely fashion: Whitney Houston.

Despite the somber undertones of host LL Cool J's opening prayer for the late singer and a rousing performance of her hit song "I Will Always Love You" by Jennifer Hudson; the night was about the music and the attitude that the show must go on.

As always with award shows, the night is also about the fashion. While many stars wore black - perhaps in honor of the late Houston - many stars let the c...
