Which Album Was Voted Best Of 2012? Hint: It’s Shocking. [Music News]


So Adam Lambert’s album, “Trespassing” has been doing remarkably well, it apparently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (?). Like, people have voted it the best album of 2012 on a number of websites including Billboard, Rolling Stone, Idolator and plenty more. His stint as the new Queen frontman was met with some serious critical praise. So . . . um . . . why have I not heard a single Adam Lambert song? The last time I saw Adam Lambert he was on the Halloween special of Pretty Little Liars, apparently he is one swaggin’ mofo. I would like to know your feelings on A-Lam in the comments. Adam Lambert fans come forth.

Lady Gaga is offering therapy to her fans before shows. /Shrug

After releasing the new single, BBD, Azealia Banks says she won’t rap anymore because it is unlady-like. Isn’t she the one who declared herself the “licorice bitch” and had no problem reclaiming the “C-word,” it’s a bit strange that she is limiting herself to silly gender norms. She said:

“I’d eventually like to stop rapping. That’s just the honest truth. One day I don’t want to rap anymore just because I think it’s kind of tacky. I think it’s very unladylike. I like it, but I think I am going to get tired of it.”

So Shakira and Usher are the new judges on The Voice. I have never heard either of these people talk.

There is this rumor that Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Azealia banks and Goddess Beyonce will be performing on a single track together called “Ratchet.” It will surely be anticlimactic or the best thing EVER EVER EVER.

Dave Grohl started a new band we’ll all have to pretend to like because he was in Nirvana

Jack White was more popular than the Beatles in 2012 which is strange because I barely heard anything about him in 2012. Selective reading, I guess.

Lil Wayne got a “BAKED” tattoo on his forehead because he is Lil Wayne.

Here is Sky Ferreira’s new video for “Lost In My Bedroom.”

Here is Kanye West performing Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” in Atlantic City.

Here is One Direction dressed up like sailors because reasons, apparently.
