Grammy Watch: Will a One Direction Member Finally Earn a Nomination?
Over the course of their five albums and six Top 10 hits together, One Direction received exactly zero Grammy nominations. So can the 1D guys at long last snap their cold streak, now as solo artists?

[…] And now, the hardest 1D member to predict at the Grammys. For Zayn, Niall, Louis and Liam, it’s relatively easy to figure out which genre categories they have the best shot at, but what to make of Harry, who made a well-received rock album that had a lead single admirably cross over to pop radio? Will rock purists recoil at the thought of a former boy band member crashing their categories? And is a pop nomination realistic for a song like “Sign of the Times,” which sounds more like Pink Floyd than Adele?

Sources tell Billboard that Harry is angling to appear in both pop and rock categories by diversifying submissions; Styles could be this year’s Twenty One Pilots, who earned a nomination in pop with “Stressed Out” and rock with “Heathens” last year. “Sign of the Times” could be submitted in the Best Rock Song category, and Styles’ self-titled debut, or another song from it, could be eligible in pop. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Styles is a lock for a Grammy nomination… but based on the reception to and success of Harry Styles, color us surprised if he doesn’t show up in some form or fashion.

Simply put, the Grammys love a good rock ‘n’ roll storyline to rally behind, as recent major nominees like Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes and Jack White have demonstrated. Blame it on the age of Grammy voters, or blame it on the rock history that runs through the Grammy Awards; the fact is, the awards have historically been kind to projects where guitar is front-and-center. And Styles is the perfect type of interloper to rally behind — his debut contains odes to psych-pop, classic rock and the most accessible portions of hair-metal, but because of his pop past, the whole world was paying attention to the synthesis of those influences.

By nominating Styles, the Grammys get to anoint a new figure in rock music who is already immensely popular and heralded by critics. What’s the downside here?

The Raciest Lyrics From One Direction's Solo Singles
Each former One Direction member has moved on to release at least one solo project since the band split up in March 2016, a time that broke teenage hearts across the world.

Each former One Direction member has moved on to release at least one solo project since Zayn left the group in 2015 and the band went on hiatus the next year – a time that broke teenage hearts across the world.

With lyrics like “I used to be in 1D (now I’m out, free),” some of the guys seem eager to shed their former boy-band persona, while others have shown off their more mature side by focusing on adult themes, complete with raunchy lyrics.

Check out the list below for a roundup of the raciest lyrics from each of the 1D guys’ solo projects (so far):

Niall Horan

Song: “Slow Hands”

Raciest Lyric: “Like sweat dripping down our dirty laundry/ No, no chance/ That I’m leaving here without you on me”

Liam Payne

Song: “Strip That Down” featuring Quavo

Raciest Lyric (tie): “Girl, I love it when your body (grinds on me)” and “Oh, strip that down, girl/ Love when you hit the ground”

Harry Styles

Song: “Only Angel”

Raciest Lyric: “When it turns out she’s a devil in between the sheets/ And there’s nothing she can do about it”

Zayn Malik

Song: “PILLOWTALK”

Raciest Lyric: “In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day/ F—ing and fighting on”

Louis Tomlinson

Song: “Just Hold On,” feat. Steve Aoki

Not-So-Racy Lyrics: Tomlinson has released only one solo track since One Direction split up and it’s inarguably the least racy of the five guys’ projects. He even refers to the person he’s singing to as “darling” throughout the song. Awww!

Touching Story Of “Produce 101 Season 2” Trainee Kim Yong Jin And His Parents Tugs At Heartstrings

The touching story of a trainee from “Produce 101 Season 2” and his parents is tugging at people’s heartstrings.

A post was recently made on an online community with the title, “Kim Yong Jin and his tear-jerking story.” It aimed to introduce the story of Kim Yong Jin, a trainee from Wings Entertainment, and his parents.

It was revealed that before the show began airing, Kim Yong Jin’s parents printed out flyers to promote their son. They are said to be very supportive of their son and his dreams, even standing outside in the rain to hand out the flyers to students in their area.

However, Kim Yong Jin ranked 88th in the first week and 84th in the second week. He was caught on camera in behind-the-scenes footage crying as none of the footage he filmed was aired during the first two episodes.

Upset that he wasn’t doing as well as he had hoped, Kim Yong Jin took to social media to write, “Completely cut from the first episode and the second episode. Was I even alive, was I even with the other trainees? But I want to thank everyone who helped me reach 84th place despite my lack of footage on the show. I feel guilty, and I feel so sorry to my family. I don’t know what to do.”

Kim Yong Jin was a former guest member of boy band Underdog and appeared on “Ulzzang TV” in 2014.

Just Hear This and Then I’ll Go by @allwaswell16 (44k)

Former boy band member Louis Tomlinson can’t stand pompous indie artist Harry Styles, but with a new record label to launch he is going to have to endure his pretensions to snag up and coming new artist Liam Payne, who happens to be Harry’s oldest friend. Luckily, Liam seems to be very interested in 78 Records and maybe a little more than interested in Louis’ best friend. Too bad Harry won’t be making this easy on any of them.

anonymous asked:

#exactly as expected #technically it's a risk #but he's not a risk- what do you mean?

guitar-based rock-pop is not currently the mainstream pop trend. right now everything is very EDM/House/TropHouse/R&B heavy on the radio. guitar music that makes the radio is usually acoustic ballads. there was actually a decent take on this from billboard:

“We don’t know what sort of lyrical content Styles has cooked up, but we aren’t expecting him to follow Zayn down the alt-R&B path. From his influences to his fashion to his onstage persona to his (formerly) flowing locks, Styles’ vibe has always screamed rock star, and despite the genre’s recent lack of presence on the Billboard Hot 100, he’s got the charisma to make it happen. And guess what? From Up All Night to 2015’s Made in the A.M., One Direction basically morphed into a pop-leaning rock band, one whose tendency to build songs on guitar and keys was often overshadowed by the fact people insisted on the boy band tag. Zayn veered away from this, and despite a fervent built-in fan base (which purchased 402,000 first-week copies of Made in the A.M. in the U.S.), his not-very-One Direction-sounding album sold considerably fewer copies – 112,000 – in its own debut week. Granted, “Pillowtalk” topped the Hot 100, but the Styles persona could give his solo career an even higher ceiling. So much hinges on how his first single fares. 

So what’s it gonna sound like? The safe, industry-tested route would be a collection of folksy, acoustic-based ballads, ones that allow for a little soul-searching, while reminding radio program directors of the Ed Sheeran and James Bay songs they’ve had success with lately. One Direction even collaborated with Sheeran; pre-fame, he co-wrote their 2012 single “Little Things” and he was brought back to help with “18” on their final album. Styles didn’t write “Little Things,” but that’s exactly the sort of doe-eyed balladry we expect on his solo material. Even writing for Ariana Grande, Styles delivered a ballad, so expect him to focus on his comfort zone, even if it means pushing outside PG-13 1D territory. Getting almost any guitar sound outside of acoustic balladry on pop radio is a tough sell these days, but again, a Harry Styles debut won’t be treated like an ordinary debut. He’d be smart to build on what worked for One Direction, though we’re not exactly pining for a Maroon 5 spin-off like “Drag Me Down.” Something that taps into the U.K.’s rich tradition of guitar music – without giving into simple revivalism – would help Styles follow on the grown-up tastemaker appeal that Zayn was able to court with Mind of Mine. DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” kind of sounds like Duran Duran if they started out in 2016, and it managed to crack the top 10. Take it from Joe Jonas, another grown-up former member of a boy band that people were afraid to call a rock band.”

I think what many critics will be looking for is 1. a flat out good song lyrically and musically and 2. the fine line between mimicry and inspiration. If he veers to inspiration, then they’ll praise the bold, stand-out move. If it’s too close to the source material, then they’ll call it out. We may get a mix of both depending on how cynical the reviewer is.

ETA: to answer your specific question 1. this is the kind of music most people expected from harry 2. in general this kind of music is a risky sell 3. but because it’s harry it has a better chance for success vs. an unknown trying to bring that sound into the mainstream.

What Music Do Americans Love the Most? 50 Detailed Fan Maps

By JOSH KATZ AUG. 7, 2017

YouTube has become a dominant force in the music industry in the last few years, particularly among younger people. With the help of YouTube’s geocoded streaming data, we set out to map the contours of music fandom and culture in the United States.

Of the artists on the Billboard Top 100 this spring, we looked at the 50 that were most watched on YouTube in the United States between January 2016 and April 2017. Each map shows relative popularity in different parts of the country. If one part of a map is lighter, it doesn’t mean people there weren’t watching the artist’s videos; it just means fans were more likely to listen to a variety of other artists.

Zayn Malik, British-born and a former member of the boy band One Direction, adopted a more R&B style in his first solo album, released in March 2016. He is moderately popular nearly everywhere, more so in the Northeast and less so in the South.

VIA THE NEW YORK TIMES

I already knew Jay Versace was problematic as hell now I go on twitter and found out he outed a former boy band member. Jay deactivated his accounts btw. He is TRASH! U NEVER OUT SOMEONE NEVER! CANCELLED FOREVER!

Update: Yes Princeton trash also. Dude is basically a stalker ain’t nobody got time for that. Princeton claims he’s been out, well maybe to his friends/family/and former band memebers but most folks unless u a fan of his (where he apparently got outed before) the general public did not know that. Folks def suspected but it was never confirmed nor has he ever released a public statement addressing his sexuality so he did out Princeton ass by exposing the parts about being closeted/not being closeted in those DMs. I get Jay was tired of Princeton ass harassing him and his friends and warned him but still need to be careful when exposing folk. He could’ve exposed without publicly outing him. Both a hot ass mess. Princeton needs to humble his ass and stop fucking harassing folks! 

anonymous asked:

what's your favorite trope? and could you rec fics from it?

OOOOOH. I think I have a very soft spot for famous!AU. Like when famous!Louis has a crush for famous!Harry and they start interacting (special kuddos if it’s on Twitter or IG) and then they meet and … Well.  I think it’s my fav

- let me make a thing of cream and stars : It doesn’t explain why he’s lying on the floor, with Harry Styles, of all people, planking on top of him.As in, seventeenth most influential person in London, pop-star-turned-rock-star Harry Styles. The same Harry Styles who has had countless model girlfriends, left, right and centre. Also  the same Harry Styles who has been the subject of Louis’ wet dreams since he was about eighteen.(Or: Louis is a Radio 1 DJ and Harry is a pop-star he interviews.)

- Amazing Sin :  Gears started turning in Louis’ head. Purely mischievous gears that had Louis formulating a revenge plan against Taylor. He’d had enough of sitting around and taking it. If she was going to call him a whore, then fine, he’ll act like one for real. “I’m going to say something, and as my friends you are obligated to love me anyway.”  “This can’t be good,” Niall said, Zayn just groaned.  “So I know we have this strict ‘no lashing back at Taylor’ rule with me, but what if I can get press revenge a different way?” Louis asked. He wasn’t expecting an answer, because they knew by now to just go with it. “What if I stole her boyfriend?”Or, the story of Louis ‘Steal Your Man’ Tomlinson.

- Play Me Like One of Your French Girls : Louis is Hollywood’s ‘Bad Boy and Sometimes Darling’, and Harry is the clumsy, endearingly attractive part-time cellist whose cello gets upgraded to the seat next to his on the plane. They fall in love.Also featuring R&B Superstar Zayn Malik, Olympic Gold Medalist Liam Payne, and Masterchef Niall Horan.

- Just For Me: Harry is a supermodel with a fake boyfriend. Louis is the captain and star forward of Manchester United with a fake girlfriend. They should have no problem having a completely platonic lunch between friends.(They do.)

- Three French Hems: In which Louis is a designer at Burberry and Harry spends December wearing Lanvin… and Lanvin… and Lanvin.

- so grab your passport and my hand: The one in which Louis plays football and Harry sings a lot, and somehow that means they’re meant to be. They’ll figure it out soon enough.

- Foolishly Completely Falling : Louis is ¼ of the infamous boy band One Direction and has had a crush on the Prince of Wales for ages. Prince Harry is gay and out and when he spills on a tv show about finding a certain Louis fit, their paths cross and everything turns into a tumult of emotions and anxiety, and the complications when you just want to show the world who you love.

- walk my days on a wireHarry hums, staring at his hands in his lap, and Louis can still feel their smoothness, how solid they were in between his own. “Do you think it’s the same for us? Are we here only because of the likeliness of our jobs? Of our lives?”
“We’re here because we have inventive managers,” Louis says, giving Harry’s leg a little nudge with his knee, but all that’s going around in his head is, I think I’d be in the same spot in every possible universe.  or, when actor Louis Tomlinson used to daydream about dating Harry Styles, this is not what he had in mind.

- but me, i’m not a gamble : A Posh & Becks AU in which Harry is a star on the stage and Louis is a star on the pitch, but they’re both inexplicably terrible at articulating their feelings. In the end, it only takes a season’s worth of failed matchmaking schemes, platonic dinner dates, road trip holidays, and one very convenient David Beckham cameo for them to figure it all out. And if Niall knew all along? Well, he at least has the decency not to be too smug about it.

- sweet, where you lay: Louis Tomlinson is a twenty-eight year old succesful actor living in New York. Harry Styles is a twenty year old up and coming model and coincidentally also the one who turns Louis’ world completely upside down.or, Louis is Zachary Quinto and Harry is Miles McMillan. Falling in love was always in the cards for them.

Do you have any recommendations for really fluffy books? Life has been horribly stressful lately and I am not in the mood to read about homophobia or murder. I'd like just really cute, fluffy romance that I can get lost in and feel happy. Do you have recommendations or is there a certain set of search options that will show me those books?

I have both! We have tag for “tone: sweet” which is basically our version of “fluff,” and you can find that here. From there, you can sort by other options, such as the genre you’re in the mood for, the pairing, the heat level, various tropes, and so on.

For instance, we have 31 books that are sweet and feature a theme of acceptance. In that subset, I’d particularly recommend Making Love (f/f cupid!), Action! (searing-hot m/m porn stars), and Cutie and the Beast (m/m urban fantasy and a personal favorite of mine).

We’ve got sweet friends-to-lovers (#First Impressions #Second Chances is delightful and also free and also Tumblr romance!, Adulting 101 is nonstop hilarious, Finding Your Feet is gentle and engaging and also very diverse). We’ve got sweet stories with kids in the picture. We’ve got a sweet romcom about wedding planning (and you can literally never go wrong with Anne Tenino). We even have a sweet secret baby romance! (Although that one you’ll have to wait a few weeks for.)

For absolute tooth-rotting fluff of the sizzling hot and funny variety, try the Damned If You Do collection (you can download the first one free!). For a short sweet holiday romance (complete with former boy band member!) that supports a worthy cause (the Ali Forney Center), try How I Met Your Father. For romance complete with puppy, try Freckles. For your sweet stranded-in-a-storm trope fix, try A Fortunate Blizzard. Want a gruff-exterior-but-squishy-interior hero and a trans lead? Try The Burnt Toast B&B. Want a delightfully unconventional alpha/omega shifter romance? Try Wet Heat.

There are so many more I’d recommend, but I’m trying to make picking not-impossible for you, so we’ll leave it at that for now :)

I hope the stress eases up for you soon, and in the meanwhile, fingers crossed that something in the sweet tag will help make you smile for at least a little bit!

Harry Styles Admits To Chelsea Handler That, Yes, He Has Four Nipples

This is four real.

Chelsea Handler recently interviewed Harry Styles for her Netflix show, “Chelsea,” in which the former boy band member confirmed a longtime rumor: yeah, he does indeed have four nipples.

During the interview, Handler asked Styles to answer her questions with one-word replies. After asking Styles about high-fiving Justin Timberlake, his new hairstyle and photosynthesis, Handler said to Styles, “There’s a rumor on the internet that you have four nipples. Have you heard?”

To which Styles simply replied, “Correct.”

In attempt to clarify what Styles just admitted to, Handler asked, “Oh, you do? … Four?”

Styles said, yes, four. 

Then, in possibly the best moment of the entire interview, Handler asked Styles to point his nipples out.

And … well … he totally did.

“Oh, I hooked-up with a guy who had that once!” Handler told Styles. “I didn’t realize that was a thing.”

“Yup, it’s a thing,” Styles said.

- Torn On The Platform  :  AU where harry and louis are strangers but they always get the same train to work in the morning and one day harry falls asleep on louis’ shoulder. louis wants to be annoyed because harry just broke a least seven rules of tube conduct but he looks so soft and peaceful that he just lets him sleep and wakes him ever so carefully when it’s his stop. it happens again and again until it becomes a regular thing where louis will let harry snooze and then gently nudge him awake, hand him the cup of coffee he took from him so it wouldn’t slip and spill everywhere and send him off with a “have fun at work, love” and after the tenth time harry isn’t even embarrassed anymore.   Cue changing work schedules, missing each other for the first time in weeks, panicking because “i don’t even know his name, why didn’t i ask for his name”, dramatic waiting on platforms and finally bumping into each other again when they least expect it (27k)

- hear your voice, in the backseat of my car  : Louis gracelessly dropped the back of his seat so he could slide himself into the backseat, the fit tight and cramped and almost too warm.  He was unbuttoning his pants when he paused for a moment and took in the sight before him. “Christ.  Look at you.”  Louis stopped and just took in what he was seeing.  He was speechless and a little overwhelmed but very, very ready to see what would happen next.  Louis drives a cab.   Harry needs a ride.

- Swim In The Smoke  : “What about this, Captain?” Liam asks, nudging the boy kneeling between their feet with the toe of his boot. The boy hisses and swipes at him, slurring out something unintelligible around the makeshift gag Niall had to stuff in his mouth. He misses by a mile and tries again, just as ineffectively.Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious, next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.“Put him in my cabin,” Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot. The boys screams out jumbled curse words at Harry’s back, muffled by the gag, and Harry can’t understand any of it. (101k)
