There aren’t many music honors that Taylor Swift hasn’t yet received, and another one is on the way: She’ll receive the “Artist of the Decade” award at next month’s 2019 American Music Awards, show producers Dick Clark Productions announced. She is already up for five nominations at the awards ceremony and will also be performing some of her hits from over the span of her career. Just last year, Swift exceeded Whitney Houston in raking in the most AMAs than any other female artist. This year, she will compete to surpass Michael Jackson in most AMAs ever for an artist, at 24 wins. She currently has 23. “She’s won more #AMAs than anyone this decade… She’s a five-time 2019 #AMAs nominee… AND she’s performing at this year’s #AMAs LIVE on Nov. 24…@taylorswift13 is our ARTIST OF THE DECADE!” said the American Music Awards in a tweet on Wednesday. Swift is nominated for her “You Need to Calm Down” video, as well as artist of the year, favorite pop/rock album for “Lover,” artist of the year, favorite pop/rock female artist and favorite adult contemporary artist.
Nicki Minaj can finally refer to Kenneth “Zoo” Petty as her “husband” without confusing everybody. After using the nickname to describe him in the past, the “Super Bass” rapper, 36, has finally married Petty. Minaj announced the exciting news with a video on Instagram, showing matching “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs and black and white baseball caps that had “Bride” and “Groom” written across the front.
She has been enjoying a four year hiatus from the music scene. Yet Adele may about to be back with a bang, judging by Twitter hysteria suggesting the singing sensation could release new music as early as next week. The singer, 31, sparked speculation that she's set to dominate the charts once again after a tweet revealed the Hello hitmaker will bring out an album next month. 'This means that her lead single will drop as soon as next week.' The star's last album, 25, dropped in November 2015 and sold a whopping 22 million copies around the world.
"Joker" laughed its way to a new record at the domestic box office. Despite mounting controversy and security concerns, the R-rated comic-book movie scored $93.5 million (76 million pounds) over the weekend and now stands as the biggest October launch of all time. Those ticket sales easily crushed the benchmark previously set last year by Sony's superhero tentpole "Venom" with $80 million. Directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix, "Joker" has been the subject of scrutiny in weeks leading up to its release over fears that the disturbing origin story of Batman's infamous foe could inspire violence. However, those anxieties didn't deter moviegoers from turning out en masse to see what all the fuss was about.
