As the end of the year draws near, music critics have come out of the woodworks to declare their picks for best album of 2011. Can you guess who tops some of the more major lists? Well if TIME magazine and Rolling Stone are any judge, then [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm]’s 21 reigns supreme.
As is to be expected, Adele is not the only AMP artist to make these prestigious lists.
[photogallerylink id=130770 align=right]This weekend [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm] are heading to the Staples Center to jumpstart their LA stop on their epic Watch The Throne tour. But before that, they start the weekend off right by making it in the top 3 of both lists.
TIME ranks them 3rd right under [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Florence & The Machine[/lastfm]’s second and breakthrough album, Ceremonials.
[photogallerylink id=104427 align=left]Rolling Stone has [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Throne[/lastfm] immediately after Adele’s quadruple platinum album at No. 2. They also include[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Lady Gaga[/lastfm]’s hit-spawning, Grammy-nominated second album Born This Way in the top 10 at No. 6.
MTV lists their top 20 for the year and name Adele at No. 2 and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Drake[/lastfm]’s sophomore effort Take Care at No. 3. They also push Jay and ‘Ye all the back to No. 8 but leave Born This Way in the top 10 at No. 10.
Do you agree with any particular list?

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm] recently released a behind the scenes video that relates to her upcoming new video, “You Da One.”
[photogallerylink id=116102 align=right]While backstage at Dublin’s O2 Show, the Barbadian singer had a mold made of her bottom teeth. During the mold process, Rihanna took the liberty of explaining why she was having the mold made. Luckily the video features subtitles to better help you understand Rih-Rih.
“I’m…getting….a….grill made…for an….upcoming video shoot,” she mumbled while the woman holding the mold still had her hands in Rihanna’s mouth. A decided Rihanna noted “I only want the bottom done… with fangs.”
Immediately after she asked, concerned, if she was biting the technician – she was. But everyone remained in good spirits.
Basically the moral of this story is that from what we know of the video so far, Rihanna rocks a blonde bob and she is going to have a fanged grill, the video will be amazing. Can you handle it? We can’t wait!
Watch the clip for yourself! Its pretty cray!
Talk That Talk- Behind the Scenes- Rihanna Gets a Grill
- Are you looking forward to the new Rihanna video? Let us know in the comments. Is a grill too much?
[photogallerylink id=134676 align=left]If you want to be a diva, you have to learn to walk, talk and apparently kiss like a diva! Just ask [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], who seems to be following pretty closely in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm]’ footsteps.
Her Minajesty has already shared the stage with Britney on her Femme Fatale tour, and now she’s done it, she’s kissed [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Madonna[/lastfm]!
On the set of Madonna’s new video, “Give Me All Your Love, ” the Pink Friday rapper shared a kiss with the Queen of Modern Pop and then spilled the beans all over Twitter about it.
“OH MY f’ingggg Gahhhh!!!!! MADONNA jus kissed me!!!!! On the lips!!!!!!! It felt sooooo good. Soooo soft!!!! *passes out* aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!” she tweeted.
Needless to say, this lead to a very inquisitive Twitter conversation between Minaj and her fans, “I was shocked but kissed back!!!ahhh! > RT @MzBellaBarbie: @NICKIMINAJ how did u react when she kissed you? Shocked? Spazzed? Kissed back?”
Eventually, she resorted to thanking her ‘Barbz’ for all their support which undoubtedly is the reason for Nicki’s success. “Thank u my loves. I couldn’t do this w/o you. I am overwhelmed. I’m in love w/u guys. How could one girl be this lucky? *holds u close*” she wrote finally before ending her tweeting for the night.
Nicki also revealed that the epic lip lock was recorded, but there is no word on whether or not the video has or will surface. We hope! Who doesn’t still watch .GIFs of the Britney-Madonna kiss? (Just me?)
Minaj isn’t the only feature on Madonna’s latest single though, expect an appearance by Brazil native, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]M.I.A.[/lastfm] Maybe Madonna will smooch her too. Maybe the “Give Me All Your Love” video will be the visuals [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] should have gone with with “I Kissed A Girl.”
Maybe that’s just a dream…
We’ll keep you posted!
