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. This year the show has decided to be more social media friendly and announce the 2015 GRAMMY Nominees over social media, and update them throughout the day.

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.
Before the WWE Smackdown taping in Knoxville, TN WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose stopped by HOT 104.5 and I was able to chop it up with him. During the interview we talked about what it was like to debut at the top of the WWE and stay there, how much of the Dean Ambrose we see on TV is the real Dean Ambrose, what he does in his off time and why this song is significant:
I really wish I knew why it is that people in Flori-duh do the dumbest things, because that’s exactly where we’re headed for this weeks Jeanius of the Week. This is where we find 45 year old Stephen Ramsey, who was arrested after calling 911 three times and asking the dispatcher on a date.
With exactly seven days until the top of the 2014-2015 NBA season, the Orlando Magic have come to terms with their center of the future, Nikola Vucevic. Vuc, who was sent to the Magic from Philadelphia as part of the Dwight Howard trade two years ago, has averaged a double-double for the team in his two seasons.
I’m surprised that more Jeanius(es) of the Week don’t come from remote places like Wisconsin, but this story here is a doozy. Heather Basten and Travis Husnik were pulled over when police saw their car drifting into oncoming traffic. The rest as they say is history and that’s why they’re our Jeanius(es) of the Week!
Kanye West is working on the follow up to his highly controversial Yeezus album, which was given critical acclaim by industry insiders but not so well received by fans when it was released last June. The follow up to the album, which is described as a less abrasive version of Yeezus, is rumored to be released this year and Def Jam CEO says the album sounds “incredible.”
