Swift’s performance at the Academy of Country Music’s 55th annual awards show will take place at the Grand Old Opry House in Nashville, which serves as one of this year’s venues, along with the city’s Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe. The singer has earned nine previous ACM wins, including a 50th Anniversary Milestone Award in 2015. The set will be her debut performance of “betty,” and her first time playing one of her songs at the awards show since 2013, when she sang “Red” alongside Vince Gill and Alison Krauss. It seems unlikely Taylor is planning to go country again, but in the long history of singers who have made the switch, she seems like one of the few who could seamlessly pull it off in reverse. … [Read more...] about Taylor Swift and ‘Betty’ Are Headed to the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards Stage

"And obviously, none of us like these circumstances, but I'd be lying if I said that I'm not having a blast being stuck at home for this long because I've just never gotten to do it before you know, since I've owned a home, I've never been able to be there more than two weeks max at a time. … [Read more...] about The Voice star Gwen Stefani looks unrecognisable with brown hair in stunning photo
For our bracket, we selected the 16 greatest, most influential shows since The Real World. (Yes, PBS’s 1971 An American Family was important, but a different animal from modern reality.) But to stage a more brutal fight, we did not pit the shows as an entity against each other: We picked each series’ greatest season.

These reliable beats are part of these shows’ appeal, but when mercilessly judging them as a whole, it is easy to apply debits for this predictability. So instead we made our contest about the best seasons of these greatest shows: The Osbournes’ first, hilarious introduction to stars-are-just-like-us celebreality. American Idol’s second-season showdown between Clay and Ruben. Season one of The Hills, before … [Read more...] about The Reality Rumble: What’s the Greatest Reality-TV Season Ever?

Oh, god, are we going country?’” As for tracks, she said she thought “White Dress/Waitress,” which Del Rey and Antonoff recorded at Jim Henson’s studio, would be “a defining moment.” Another song, “Dealer,” which may or may not have been added to the track list, features Del Rey “just screaming my head off.” “People don’t know what it sounds like when I yell,” she said. “And I do yell.” And the title track is about her “stunning girlfriends” and “beautiful siblings,” who inspired a lot of the album. The album as a whole sounds like the Midwest, added Del Rey, a self-proclaimed Angeleno. “It’s not cooked or oversaturated, and … [Read more...] about Lana Del Rey, 6-Time Grammy Nominee, Says She ‘Will Die an Underdog’
