Michael Jackson gets 5 Nominations for American Music Awards

The American Music Awards has nominated  Michael Jackson for five awards. Jackson will also be nominated or dominated at all other music and arts award ceremonies this year.


Michael Jackson's "Number Ones" was the bestselling album of 2009, but it was released in 2003. It's a greatest hits compilation that features songs from the 80s and 90s.



There will be some controversy because music critics feel that the AMAs should honor only artists who recently recorded albums.


I don’t think the American Music Awards should be nominating an artist who has not released an album this year. If they want to present an award, it should be a life time achievement award, or creative achievements award.


If this goes through and Michael Jackson does win an award for “Number Ones”, then this is would clearly be double standards, and all recording artists would be up in arms.


We all do respect Michael, his music, and what he had accomplished. We also do respect and need to pay respect to a recording artist that has passed away. But this is not the way to do it.


Artists like Taylor Swift will be up against Michael Jackson this year, and if Taylor lost, this would not be right at all.

Lady Gaga “Fame Kills” Tour is killed by Kayne West

It was announced yesterday, that Lady Gaga and Kayne West’s “Fame Kills” tour has been cancelled. The announcement was made just before tickets were to go on sale.


Obviously this was cancelled at the last minute, As Lady Gaga was so pumped up for this tour. She and Kayne West had designed the impressive stage together. Lady Gaga was also set to play new and unreleased songs on the “Fame Kills” tour.



This does and does not come as a surprise, as Kayne has been getting allot of bad publicity since his stint at the VMA’s with Taylor Swift.


For sure this cancelled tour has cost lots of money for both Lady Gaga and Kayne West, as promoters will be looking for they’re money from the cancelled tour, ticket agents that have to reimburse everyone that bought tickets and so on…


Lady Gaga has not mentioned anything about the cancelled tour, and she has been unusually quiet and not seen in public since the announcement. Even her twitter account has not seen any activity. Will be interesting to hear more about this, will have to wait and see, as the dust settles.
