Would you turn down a spot opening for Taylor Swift or Rihanna? Well, that’s exactly what The 1975 did! The 1975 are a Manchester, UK band that are skyrocketing up the charts back on their home turf. They’re set to headline the Bushmills Live 2014 music festival in Ireland this summer and are now prepping to hit the US with full force.

But everyone likes hot legs, right? Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Miley Cyrus -all of your favorites are on the list!
With the exception of Pharrell, it’s been a slow start to 2014 in terms of new music we want to listen to while jumping around our bedroom. Thankfully Sia just went and infused our never-ending winter with some much-needed powerful pop, sure to carry us into spring. At the surface, “Chandelier” — which many are calling the best “Rihanna song” of 2014 –is an unapologetic party anthem that celebrates excessive drinking and hazardous at-home aerial activities. But with the Australian’s soaring vocals it becomes a metaphor for much more.
The music world is not exactly known for toned-down styles, and many fashion forward females in the biz have upped even their bra game!

As winter begins to thaw, it’s time to get excited about the next big couple of 2014. Drake and Rihanna have each hinted at hooking up before, but now it appears they’re hanging out on a more consistent basis. Finally! Could we be witnessing the creation of BeyJey 2.0?
Lately we’ve been talking an awful lot about the hazards associated with being a world-renowned musician, and it kind of bummed us out. But then Billboard published its annual list of the highest earners in music, which reminded us that being a rock star is actually really awesome.
