Swift, 21, has been recognized before by this prestigious music industry trade, receiving titles for Top Country Artist, Top Country Album and Top Billboard 200 Artist. But this new recognition makes her the youngest artist ever to earn the honor.
The New Yorker doesn’t usually devote much space to young artists or current trends, but they made an exception for Taylor Swift in their most recent issue, giving a full profile of the artist that, as they point out, has sold more albums in the last five years than any other musician.
Swift was characteristically frank in the article, offering her thoughts on life and love as a 21-year-old superstar and offering a few hints of what fans can expect to hear from her next album, due in 2012.
You’d hardly expect an artist responsible for frothy pop songs such as ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca,’ ‘Shake Your Bon-Bon’ and ‘She Bangs’ to be at the center of a political controversy, but that’s apparently exactly where Ricky Martin is these days.
Rumor has it that an upcoming Martin gig in Honduras may be canceled — not to mention the star’s visa is in jeopardy — because government officials disapprove of the singer’s sexual orientation.
As the doctor who presided over Michael Jackson‘s death stands trial and the world is preoccupied with the grisly details of his final hours, Cirque du Soleil is preparing to honor the fallen icon with a spectacular tribute to his musical legacy.
The project, dubbed the ‘Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour,’ will launch October 2 in Montreal, and is only part of what the Jackson estate has planned for the coming year.
Most of the considerable hype surrounding the ‘Twilight’ series has centered on the many, many books and movie tickets it’s sold, but the franchise has also been a musical phenomenon, generating more than 4.5 million units in sales over three soundtrack albums.
With the next installment in the series scheduled to reach theaters on November 18, dedicated Twi-hards — not to mention music retailers — have been eagerly awaiting news about its soundtrack. On Monday, Atlantic Records obliged, releasing the full track listing and artwork via Twitter.
In today’s pop marketplace, it’s commonly accepted for an artist to take three years or longer to finish a new album, which is almost exactly how long it took Lady Gaga to get from her first full-length collection, ‘The Fame,’ to its recently released follow-up, ‘Born This Way.’
But Gaga didn’t get where she is by following what everyone else is doing, and based on comments she made during a recent call-in to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, it sounds like she’ll be back with another album sooner than anyone expected.
For her 10th full-length studio effort, Blige has created a sequel to her Grammy-nominated 1994 sophomore release, ‘My Life,’ which sold three million copies, spawned four hit singles, and is widely regarded as a modern R&B classic.
