Chance the Rapper wins best new artist Grammy, ignores playoff music

Chance the Rapper was declared best new artist at the 2017 Grammy Awards. He beat out Kelsea Ballerini, the Chainsmokers, Maren Morris and Anderson .Paak. His win marks the first time a black hip-hop artist has won the best new artist award since Lauryn Hill won back in 1999. Read more

YG literally threw 2ne1 away. And for what? What good has tossing away one of kpop’s biggest girl groups in history done for him? For the company? What good is it to so seriously neglect your company’s only girl group pre-2016, to a point where a member leaves (Minzy), one isn’t seen in public for a total of a year or two with rare exceptions (Bom), and another could have had a successful solo debut and career in South Korea – but her talent was never tapped into (Dara)? How badly did you want to fuck up something handed to you on a silver platter?

Now on top of all that, the new girl group (and now only girl group) in YG won’t even perform at MAMA, and we all know the (unwritten) rule that no attendance = no award at MAMA, killing BP’s chances at receiving awards (Best New Female Artist, Best Music Video, and at delivering a shining performance on a highly internationally-broadcast stage during their debut year. This isn’t even a joke anymore. It’s infuriating and pathetic.

Things that will blow your mind:

1. “One Shot” did not win a music show, in fact, B.A.P never won a music show until 1004, when they were finally payed by their company for over 3 years of work, a measly $16 000.

2. Despite being nominated for Best New Male Artist and Artist of the Year in 2012 and receiving Mnet PD’s Choice Award that year, B.A.P have never been invited to MAMA.

Remember just before I.O.I’s debut when everyone said that a project group could never work and that they would flop? How they couldn’t get a dorm, and it was rumoured that companies were dropping their agreements with them and it was unknown if they’d even be allowed to promote on more than one music show? Now look at them. Their MVs total to over 93.5 million views. 8 music show awards, 9 wins from music awards (including best new female artist at the MAMA’s). The members made appearances on 39 different variety shows and did countless endorsements. A rookie group managed to hold a solo concert. Hell, one of the members even went solo and became the fastest solo artist to get #1 on a music show. So here’s to you, I.O.I, for beating all the odds and showing the world that you won on Produce 101 for a reason. Thank you for everything.

GFRIEND won 'TOP 10 Artists (6th)', 'Best Dance Award(Female)' BLACKPINK won the 'Best New Artist' MAMAMOO won 'TOP 10 Artists (7th)' TAEYEON won 'TOP 10 Artists (10th)' RED VELVET won the 'Best Music Video', 'TOP 10 Artists (9th)' SEVENTEEN won the 'MBC Music Star Award' + Gold Medal from Weekly Idol

When most of the groups that you are stanning were given an award/s beng I’M SO PROUD 😍😭👏

George and Lori Schappell

Remarkably, the Siamese twins are able to live very different and separat lives, with Lori having had relationships and George — who was originally named Dori — deciding to live life as a man.
Lori is also a champion ten-pin bowler and George performs as a country and western singer. Throughout the Nineties, he had a successful music career in the States and won an LA Music Award for Best New Country Artist.
While Lori, was born ablebodied, George suffers from spina bifida, which has caused severe mobility problems.

Lori has dated men. She says: “I lost my virginity at the age of 23 to my second boyfriend. “When I went on dates, George would bring along books to read and, as we don’t face each other, he could ignore any kissing. I don’t see why being a conjoined twin should stop me having a love life and feeling like a woman.” Few years ago Lori was engaged, but four months before the couple were due to marry, her fiancé was killed by a drunk driver.

If you missed MAMA awards...

Akatsuki no Yona: Idol AU

4Dragons is the hot new idol group that is shaking the nation, with their break out hit “Initiation” they have now burst onto the scene and have shaken up the competition for the Best New Artist Award. Can 4Dragons take it to the top? We’re just as excited as you to find out!

So I know a few people have already done this, but after binge watching some kpop I just had to make my own addition to this trope. 

So in this AU, Yona is the daughter in the line of Hiryuu Records, founded by the famous agent Hiryuu. Basically a multimedia machine, both her and her cousin Soo-Won in competition for the position of CEO. After Soo-Won wins out the bid, Yona decides to go to Wind Tribe Records, a smaller and more indie label with hopes of bringing her own group to the top and proving her chops as they try to win the Best New Artist Award at the patent Kouka’s Choice Awards.

  • someone: *asks a question about taylor swift*
  • my friend: hoe don't do it
  • me: Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American singer-songwriter. Raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, Swift moved to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music. She signed with the independent label Big Machine Records and became the youngest songwriter ever hired by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house. The release of Swift's self-titled debut album in 2006 established her as a country music star. Her third single, "Our Song," made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Hot Country Songs chart. She received a Best New Artist nomination at the 2008 Grammy Awards. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me," Fearless became the best-selling album of 2009 in the United States. The album won four Grammy Awards, with Swift becoming the youngest ever Album of the Year winner. Swift's third and fourth albums, 2010's Speak Now and 2012's Red, both sold over one million copies within the first week of their U.S release. Speak Now won two Grammy Awards, while Red's singles "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "I Knew You Were Trouble" were worldwide hits. Swift's fifth album, the pop-focused 1989, was released in 2014. It sold more copies in its opening week than any album in the previous 12 years, and made Swift the first and only act to have three albums sell more than one million copies in the opening release week. The singles "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space" both reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

AAA marks 10th anniversary with album, tour (The Japan News 10/08/15)

Now in its 10th year, the seven-member performance group AAA (Triple A) seems to have reached its prime, but its members keep taking on new challenges.

“To tell you the truth, I didn’t expect our group would last this long,” said Chiaki Ito, 28.

The group successfully finished their first Asian tour earlier this year and released singles for seven consecutive months. They also finished a nationwide tour with open-air performances in Yamanashi Prefecture late last month.

Kyle Baker 2004-2006: Plastic Man covers

It’s ironic that while Baker’s independent work is nearest and dearest to his heart, he found his greatest commercial success working on superheroes for one of the “big two.” Baker’s work on Plastic Man won him a string of awards spanning from 2004-2006 from both the Eisners (Best Writer/Artist: Humor, Best New Story, Best Title for Younger Readers) and the Harveys (Best New Series, Special Award for Humor). Baker laughs off the awards and explains the impetus for his approach in his interview with Modern Masters:

It was nice. [laughter] I like winning awards. My goal for that book was to do something my kids would like. I’ve really gotten into kids stuff over the last ten years. Once you have kids, you start to look around your house and you realize how much money you’ve spent on really bad cartoons.
