After taking a week off letting Bruno Mars stay atop the Billboard Hot 100 Katy Perry’s Firework returns to the top. This is the fourth non-consecutive week this song has been atop the chart. Last year, Perry stayed at #1 for 6 weeks with California Gurls and an additional 2 weeks with Teenage Dream.
Last week’s chart victor Bruno Mars’s Grenade fell to #2 on the chart, and Ke$ha’s We R Who We R hung on to #3.
At last night’s People’s Choice Awards Katy Perry picked up the awards for “Favorite Female Singer” and “Favorite Web Celeb”
Both Eminem and Rihanna earned a myriad of honors at the 37th Annual People’s Choice Awards on January 5th. Eminem won four awards: Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Hip-Hop Artist, Favorite Song, and Favorite Music Video. The latter two awards were shared with Rihanna who also earned Favorite Pop Star at the show. The two are also side-by-side this week on the Billboard charts; Eminem is at #2 with Recovery while Rihanna resides at #3 with Loud. Neither artist attended the event.
Katy Perry won two awards for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Web Celeb, she accepted her awards hinting at summer dates for her California Dreams Tour.
Usher, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Paramore each nabbed one award. Paramore did not attend the ceremony as their band is going through a rebuilding phase after losing two members last month. They are set to talk to MTV on Friday (Jan. 7) addressing the issue.
Also, Selena Gomez, who picked up Favorite New Artist performed her hit A Year Without Rain, at the show. The album of the same name is in stores now.
Suprising snubs, both Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber went home empty handed. Also suprising, Britney Spears lost in the Favorite TV Guest Star category. Tough Luck!
What did you think of the People’s Choice Awards!
As predicted a very purple Katy Perry picked up “Favorite Female Artist” and “Favorite Web Celeb” at the People’s Choice Awards. The award was aided by her 3 #1 singles from her album Teenage Dream.
The diva was up against fierce competition that included Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.
Perry left the stage saying that we can see her on her “California Dreams” Tour this summer. Offical dates have yet to be announced.
What do you think? Were you happy to see Katy win?
Country-Hip/Hop-Rock Star Kid Rock is performed at the PCAs today (Jan. 5), and its pretty terrible. He is wearing this disgusting fur jacket and doesn’t even sort of sing well.
The last time we saw KR perform was at the American Music Awards where he gave a boring, yet touching and beautifully sung vocal. Unfortunately this is the exact opposite. The song is fun, but he kills it, and not in a good way.
What did you think of Kid’s performances?
Miranda Cosgrove is prepping the release of her yet to be titled second studio album. The follow-up to her debut Sparks Fly has already spawned the hit-single Dancing Crazy.
BUT Miranda took a break to walk the red carpet at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards. She is nominated for her performance on iCarly:iPsycho. Good Luck!
What do you think of Miranda?
Taylor Swift is currently presenting the award for “Favorite Movie Actor”, but it is not her highlight of her night. The country star picked up “Favorite Country Singer” earlier in the evening. We predicted that btw. Earlier this year Swift released Speak Now which sold one-million copies in one week, and became the third highest selling album of the year.
Another winner of the night was Selena Gomez & The Scene for “Favorite New Artist”, it was a shock and makes viewers wonder whether the awards are legitimate, or simply award people who are in the audience. She beat out front-runner/boyfriend Justin Beiber,
What do you think of the nights winners thus far?
P.S. Johnny Depp won
Selena Gomez and her band “The Scene” is performing tonight at the People’s Choice Awards. She looked goregeous as she walked down the red carpet, and was hounded by paparazzo.
One question kept coming up to Selena, and it was about none other that the Great Justin Beiber. Selena kept her mouth shut and is still calling them “just friends.” As reported earlier this week photos have been leaked of Justin and Selena getting close.
Justin and Selena are going head-to-head in the “Best New Artist” category. Good Luck!
Thoughts about JB and SG?
