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.

Taylor Swift Makes It An Eight-Peat Atop Billboard 200

Taylor Swift Makes It An Eight In A Row Atop Billboard 200
Maybe DJ Khaled and Drake said it best: “No New Friends.” Applied to the current Billboard 200, the phrase is best attributed, “no new releases” of note. That said no one is shocked to hear that the invincible Taylor Swift rules the charts for an eighth non-consecutive week. Even with units and sales alike down from the previous week, 1989 still stood tall, selling 172,000 copies.

Swift was unopposed at the top spot, with the next closest album in sales (Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack) and impact (Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint) not coming anywhere close. 172,000 versus 70,000 copies ...

Taylor Swift Easily Keeps The Number One Spot Red Hot On The Bil
She's bleeping unstoppable – like totally! As much as the talk of the queen – aka Taylor Swift – has grown old, she just keeps on dominating the music industry like it’s never been dominated before. She's beastly – in the most distinguished and ladylike manner possible. Cutting to the chase and the 'pure' sales total, Swift sold another 326,000 copies of 1989, impacting with an even more robust number of 'units'. Nobody seems to be able to 'shake off' Swift and if she was shakable, the industry would be left with a void - a "Blank Space" (get it?).

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!

This time, he earns the largest sales of his career as 2014 Forest Hills Drive sold a robust 354,000 copies. Translated to the Billboard 200’s new formula of ‘units’, J. Cole’s latest impacted 375,000. Even more remarkable about J. Cole’s numbers is the lack of a single to drive album sales – “Apparently” was issued upon the album’s release as a single.

Nicki Minaj says that despite all the booty-saking and near nudity in the video for her latest single, "Anaconda," there's nothing special about it.

The singer, who appears in a sexy spread for the November GQ, says that she doesn't "know what there is to really talk about," when asked to discuss it.

"I'm being serious," she says of the racy promo. "I just see the video as being a normal video."

The rapper exlained that her video is simply about girls doing what they do, which, to her, is dancing around in skimpy outfits and twerking.

Wiz Khalifa has been high many times in his life – he’d probably say the same thing – but he’s never been #1 on the Billboard 200. This week, after two previous albums, Wiz Khalifa’s latest album Blacc Hollywood sold 90,000 copies, easily sufficient for #1. While Wiz had never debuted at the penthouse, both his previous albums actually moved more copies their first week. 2011 effort Rolling Papers sold a robust 197,000 copies, while 2012 LP O.N.I.F.C. sold 148,000. Each album by the kush lover has sold less. Still, Wiz should celebrate…then again maybe he should ease up on Mary Jane. ...
