U2 Top Forbes 2010 Music Rich List

Forbes released its list of top paid musicians for 2010 and gotta say, quite a few surprises there. U2 came in number one with $130 million earned, but the interesting part is that the Top 5 was dominated by artists of the 70’s and 80’s. AC/DC came in second with $114 million and fourth place was taken by Bruce Springsteen with $68.7 million.

Only one new artist was able to hit the Top 10 and it was none other than, you guessed it . . . Lady Gaga! Surely no shock to anyone but what was rather noteworthy is that Beyonce Knowles hit the list a full 3 spots and $20 million ahead of hubby Jay-Z. Wonder how Hova feels about that one?

Chris Brown Breaks Down Crying During MJ Tribute

Chris Brown cried through much of his Michael Jackson tribute last night at the 2010 BET Awards. He honored the King of Pop by doing a dancing tribute that MJ would’ve loved to see himself. However, as he was about to sing “Man In The Mirror” he couldn’t even get through it because he was crying so hard.

It honestly was a very emotional moment for everyone even watching the Awards. But one can’t help to question, was Brown crying because the MJ death anniversary was getting to him, or was it because of something within himself. I mean the song that he struggled to get through WAS “Man In The Mirror” hmmm…

Drake Comments On Album Leak

Welp, sorry to say it Drake but is there anyone left who hasn’t heard the new album?

The much anticipated album, Thank Me Later leaked to the internet and streets two weeks before it hit retail but Drake hasn’t even broken sweat over the matter.

Drake tweeted, ““I gave away free music for years, so we’re good over here … just allow it to be the soundtrack to your summer and ENJOY! JUNE 15th!”

Well isn’t that sweet? With appearances by Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, and others, let’s just hope the album is worthy of being the soundtrack to all of our summers.

M.I.A. Praises Madge, Goes After GaGa Again!

In a recent interview with NY Times, M.I.A. praised and spoke so very highly of Madonna. This is obviously understandable, because who could deny how amazing Madonna truly is. However, M.I.A. then felt the need to continue on with the interiew, bashing Lady Gaga. And this is definitely not the first time M.I.A. felt the need to speak down about Gaga. Listen, we accept M.I.A.’s crazy personality, but why does it always have to come to bashing Gaga? Here’s a little clip of the interview:

“With our video, we were really copying ‘Telephone.’ Both our videos are road movies. We kill people, and they kill people. They start out in a prison, and we start out in a squat, hunting people down. I can’t talk about GaGa anymore. All I’ll say is, it’s upsetting when babies say ga-ga now. It used to be innocent. Now, they’re calling her name. You can’t really say that GaGa is culturally a change. Madonna was truly unique.”
