Ariana Grande To Rock This Year's NBA All-Star Game Halftime Sho
Do you love basketball? Do you also love Ariana Grande? Do you wish these two seemingly unrelated sports/singers might meld together into a single event?

There's likely to be more than one world-famous musician at this year's All-Star Game- kind of like last year, when Pharell, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Nelly and Busta Rhymes all performed at the pre-game show (the half-time ...

Meghan Trainor Debuts Robustly Atop The Billboard 200
Meghan Trainor had a big week – particularly for the dead of January. After weeks of domination by chart queen Taylor Swift, Trainor seized the number one spot as Title sold a robust 195,000 copies. This does NOT happen in January folks! Throw in Billboard’s multi-faceted formula, and the impact of the “All About That Bass” singer’s debut is even more impressive. Meghan Trainor is doing big things and definitely had the most special week of the newbies on the chart. If only the other newbies had such numbers which to boast.
