Future, DS2 © Epic
Musicians continue to make chart history in 2015 despite lackadaisical sales in many cases. Future’s sales were by no mean lackadaisical this time around as DS2 (Dirty Sprite 2) debuted commandingly at #1 on the Billboard 200.

Even in sales alone, 121,000 copies according to Billboard, he more than doubled his start for his 2014 effort, Honest.

Earlier this week, Minaj posted a series of tweets asking MTV if her video "Feeling Myself" missed the deadline for consideration and then going off about her "Anaconda" video not getting a nod for VotY.

Jake Gyllenhaal wasn't going to fall into Howard Stern's trap of badmouthing ex-Taylor Swift.

When the "Southpaw" actor appeared on the host's Sirius XM radio show, he was careful to allow Stern to do all the talking and comment very little.

The "America's Got Talent" host remarked to the actor that when he promoted "Southpaw" at "Good Morning America," the show played Swift's latest tune "Bad Blood" as he was introduced.

"Were you are of that?" he asked.

"No," 34-year-old G...

Will Taylor Swift Ever Dominate The Grammys Again?

The question is, is her pop album, 1989 too big to be ignored by the Grammys come 2016? Let’s backtrack a little before speculating about the future.

In 2010, Taylor Swift’s profile was greatly elevated. Kanye West had acted like a total ‘you-know-what’ and from the shameful incident, S...
