One Direction Begins The Post-Zayn Era Off Right With 'Drag Me D
The post-Zayn Malik One Direction era has officially begun. That’s not to say that the mourning has ceased from Directioners everywhere hoping Malik’s exit was the nightmare of the 2010s, but the quintet now reduced to a quartet have to move on. Honestly, historically, a huge change in personnel for a band – rock or pop-oriented – can be a fragile time. In other words, One Direction’s fifth studio album is a very important.

Producers and the Brit-Irish band must get it right and prove that One Direction will be fine sans Zayn. That sounds cruel perhaps – maybe even belittling to a band tha...

But "looks like a terrorist" is definitely not one of them. Unless you're Bill Maher, because the late-night comic drew that very comparison in a recent online-only video- comparing Malik to Dzokhar Tsarnaev, one of the accused Boston Marathon bombers.

"I think after everything we’ve been through, I at least deserved the common respect of being told face to face," Maher said on "Real Time with Bill Maher," speaking to a photo of the former One Direction singer....

Amy Adams and One Direction on SNL
The 2014 Christmas episode of "Saturday Night Live" took most of its inspiration from the holiday season, as "SNL" Christmas episodes are wont to do. Sometimes that resulted in sticking too close to tradition, while other times that tradition was rebelled against, resulting in memorably experimental Christmas sketches. It was one of those episodes where you take the good and you take the bad. In her second outing, Amy Adams was the sort of host who slotted in naturally to whatever role she was given without overshadowing the cast. Musical guest One Direction did what they do, surely pleasin...

One Direction Score Fourth Number One Album With ‘Four’: This We
'Tis the season where album sales are elevated and the music industry breathes a sigh of relief – until the deadness of January that is. While there have been few victory laps (besides Taylor Swift’s 1989), the numbers are stronger than earlier in 2014. That said, reliable chart-topper One Direction scored a fourth number one album with Four. Although 1D got it done, there is a ‘but’ to the scenario.

Four landed at a familiar spot for 1D, but did so in somewhat underwhelming fashion. Sure the 387,000 copies the British-Irish boy band moved is exceptional, but falls below both prognostic...

Do The American Music Awards Foreshadow Potential Grammy Nominee
The AMAs are truly a popularity contest. The music fans select winners, which is a stark difference from the more prestigious Grammys. Often a gripe of music fans and critics alike are the sometimes odd, ‘out of touch’ choices by the Recording Academy. One that comes to mind is how Macklemore & Ryan Lewis cleaned up the rap categories, yet arguably the more transcendent artist, Kendrick Lamar, when home empty handed.

That said it could be argued both the AMAs and the Grammys have tremendous pros and bothersome cons. Even given the contrasts between both music awards show, the AMAs do...

Taylor Swift Is Unstoppable On Billboard 200: This Week In Music
Face it folks, Taylor Swift is a juggernaut – the gift that keeps on giving generously to the music industry after a dismal sales year. Taylor Swift may not be the ‘second coming,’ but she’s definitely something. 1989 spends its third week atop the Billboard 200 Albums chart, selling a respectable 312,000 copies. If you’re keeping score, that means that Swift’s 1989 sits at two million copies sold in just three weeks.

Foo Fighters couldn’t beat Ms. Swift and didn’t even come that close. Foo Fighters sold soundly, moving 190,000 copies of Sonic Highways, good for a #2 bow. Pink Floyd...

Review: One Direction Transition To Adulthood On 'Four'
“You’re insecure / don’t know what for / you’re turning heads when you walk through the door.” Grunt! It wasn’t that long ago that one of the most annoyingly, a catchy boy band song was born, to the delight of girls and to the chagrin of (many) guys. However, beginning with One Direction’s Midnight Memories album, any Directioner or non-Directioner could feel the band was beginning a transition stylistically and in regards to overall maturity.

The British-Irish band’s fourth album, Four is a full-fledged transitional album, finding the once schmaltzy boys transitioning gracefully to adu...

This week, it’s possible that Swift has met her match with beloved boy band One Direction, who surpassed the half-million mark with two out of three of their previous albums. Whether Four will receive the same reception only time can tell, but it’s certainly the biggest album to watch this week.
