TonightSaturday Night Live celebrated their 40th anniversary with a star-studded show that honored the stars (past and present), musical guests and hosts and killed John Lovits……. twice lol. During the show Kanye West took the stage and performed a medley of hits. Arguably his biggest; “Jesus Walks” and his latest two “Only One” (ft. Paul McCartney) and “Wolves” (ft. Sia and Vic Mensa, both of whom joined him on stage.
Looks like J. Cole is hitting the road to support his 2014 Forest Hills Drive album, which went gold in two weeks, when it was released last December! Cole took to Twitter to announce the first dates of the tour, which he says will be hitting cities that he feels don’t get any love, with more dates coming soon!
More dates next week @Dreamville

It looks like his three song Christmas Day EP, was an appetizer for the main event that is Miguel‘s third studio album, which we have impatiently waiting for since the release of his GRAMMY nominated Kaleidoscope Dream album. Well in an interview with Billboard, Marc PItts, the President of Urban Music over at RCA spilled the beans on the new album!
Tonight is “musics BIGGEST night” the 2015 GRAMMY Awards! Before the show started some awards have already been given out! Congrats to Pharrell who won Best Urban Contemporary Album for G I R L which is a pleasant surprise over Beyonce‘s self titled album. Kendrick Lamar has won two GRAMMY’s both for “i” for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. Eminem also won two awards; Best Rap Album for the MMLP 2 and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “The Monster” with Rihanna. Although I predicted that the internet would break with Iggy Azalea winning in the rap categories I was pleasantly surprised that she didn’t! Over the next three and a half hours I’ll be sharing my thoughts as well as some of those who I follow on Twitter’s thoughts on the show! Follow the madness @itsMeanJean.
I don’t know what the ratings say, but Jimmy Fallon is killing the late night game! The best part about it is that he isn’t trying to do it like anyone in the past, he is putting his own touch on it, which was the best way to go! Tonight he caught up with the crew from Bayside High! Yup, Zach, Slater, Kelly, Jesse Spano and even Mr. Belding. They squeezed a lot of Saved By the Bell history in eight minutes and it’s perfect! Mario Lopez and the pregnant Tiffani Amber Thiessen still look good, the other members of the show didn’t age as well.
If you love Chipotle as much as this little guy does, you’re in luck because you can get hooked up with a free burrito just for trying their new Sofritas, a tofu option, on Monday January 26th.
Iggy Azalea is having a hell of a year, four hit singles; two as a solo artist and two featured, “Fancy” “Black Widow” (ft. Rita Ora) “Problem” as a featured artist with Ariana Grande and T.I.‘s “No Mediocre.” Four GRAMMY nominations; Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Song and Record of the Year for “Fancy,” the only thing left to do was a North American tour. Well that’s next on her list as she announced the dates for her North American tour, The Great Escape Tour, featuring Nick Jonas and Tinashe. The spring tour kicks off August 14 in Fresno, California and wraps up May 24 in Austin, Texas.
Twitter just keeps getting bigger and bigger, #hashtags are taking over the world, you can’t watch a TV show without them suggesting a #hashtag to use on social media. People, myself included have used hashtags, text messages I”m not proud of it, but it has happened.
This morning The Today Show listed some of the biggest moments on Twitter.
It’s officially GRAMMY season, as the nominees for the 2015 57th annual show were announced over social media on Friday, December 5. Sam Smith, Pharrell and Beyonce led the way with six nominations each. Pharrell picks up extra nominations for his contributions to Beyonce and Ed Sheeran‘s albums as a producer while Beyonce passed Dolly Parton as the most nominated female of all time.
The format of this post will be the same as previous year’s: who should win/who will win. I will have some help here with our own Cody Taylor doing the Rock categories and Carina Stewart from Q100.3 doing the country categories.
It’s officially GRAMMY season! This morning on CBS the lead up to “Music’s Biggest Night started,” when Pharrell and Ed Sheeran dropped by to kick off the announcing of 2015 GRAMMY nominees.

Yesterday was World AIDS Day, and U2 frontman Bono, threw a free “surprise concert” in Times Square, that he wasn’t there for, to raise money for AIDS research. The rest of U2 performed with Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and Bruce Springsteen. Also gracing the stage was Carrie Underwood
and my guy Kanye West.
