Recording Academy President Neil Portnow is desperately trying to backtrack on comments he made the night of the 2018 GRAMMYs. Several women in the busisness have hit back at Neil’s remarks that women need to “step up” in the music industry in a response he gave to a question about why so few women won awards Sunday night.
Artist like Halsey, Charli XCX, Iggy Azalea, P!nk, Katy Perry and Lauren Jauregui all had something to say about Neil’s challenge. Turns out telling young, motivated women how to handle their business doesn’t get a man like Neil much love on social media.
Ariana Grande is poised to win some very special awards across the pond. The singer is nominated for “Hero of the Year” at the 2018 NME Awards. The nomination comes alongside a nomination for the One Love Manchester benefit concert as “Music Moment of the Year.” It’s a bit of special recognition for the pop star who went back to the city where her concert was bombed to raise money for victims and their families.
Sophie Turner may want to hang on to Joe Jonas and their new puppy a little tighter, because someone else knows just how sexy he is. Singer Charli XCX sat down with Billboard and the singer had some surprising facts about how she came up with her “Boys” concept.
Billed as “fall’s wildest tourmates,” Halsey and Charli XCX are splitting cover duties for the latest issue of Billboard. As the headliner and opener duo prepares for Halsey’s September tour kick off, they apparently got really drunk after performing a “Spice Girls” cover and dished on just how messy they like to get together.
“Part of our brand is ‘hot mess,’” Halsey tells the interviewer. “Being authentic. ‘Yeah, it’s 5 a.m., and I’m wasted and I’m fucking doing that.’ So if I look like shit on a certain day…” Halsey trails off before Charli chimes in: “It’s my brand!” Halsey and Charli seem eager to position themselves as pop’s new turn up queens, but not without reservations.
“I’m scared, because I’ve been sober on every tour I’ve ever done,” Halsey explains. “And I’m not going to be with Charli there.” While Charli thinks that’s a good think, Halsey went on, “I’m neurotic. I had a really bad experience. We did Madison Square Garden and it was a sold-out show, the biggest of my career, and three songs in, everything stopped: tracks, lights, video. Everything failed, because there was one wire unplugged.”
Camila Cabello will soon make her Rollacoaster Magazine cover debut and the singer teased a few of the photos from the upcoming issue. Wonderland previewed highlights from the singer’s cover story in which she talked about making music on her own versus in a group and how she tapped Charli XCX for her album.
“She’s always been so nice to me,” Camila says of her “OMG” co-writer. “Before I met her I think she tweeted about my song ;Bad Things’ and then she expressed that she really wanted to write with me. Obviously I’m such a huge fan of her, she’s an amazing writer.”
