PRINCE along with Taylor Swift, Pharrell and Lorde, are nominated for the BBC International Artist Of The Year award for the BBC Music Awards.
The nominees are:
The Award show will take place Thursday December 11th and will be available on BBC Radio.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Cool nomination. If BBC radio is like American Radio, Taylor Swift will be your winner.
Lorde's mega-hit smash "Royals" is going to be banned from 2 San Francisco radio stations while the San Francisco Giants take on the Kansas City Royals starting Tuesday October 21st.
KFOG and KOIT in the bay area will not play the "Royals" song as long as the World Series is going on.
Kansas City radio stations have responded stating they will be playing Lorde's "Royals" every hour on the hour during the World Series.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Lorde wrote the song about the Kansas City Royals when she saw a picture of of George Brett from 1976 signing autographs.
The American Music Awards will be the same as it was in 2013. Well, at least when it comes to the host, which will be Pitbull.
"World, who would have thought Pitbull hosting the AMAs two years in a row," said Armando Christian Perez aka Pitbull., "The harder I work, the luckier I get. Thank you ABC and dick clark productions for the amazing opportunity - more than anything let's get ready to have fun. Dale!"
Iggy Azelea is up for 6 AMA's, the most by any artist this year. John Legend, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams each have 4 and Lorde comes in with 3.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The AMA's air on ABC Sunday November 23rd.
Lorde has announced a new North American Tour with tickets going on sale next Tuesday June 10th.
The tour will run from August til October.
If you are tired of hearing Lorde on the radio, she might be as well. In the new issue of V magazine, Lorde says she is waiting for radio to stop playing her before unleashing something new.
"I want to let people stop hearing Lorde on the radio all the time, because it's kind of crazy at the moment. I'd like to give people a little bit of breathing room before I unleash something different."
Is she afraid of that comment rubbing people the wrong way?
"Oh, come on. I'm sure so many people will read that and be like, F**k off."
Well, with radio playing the same 6 songs like no other songs exist, we might not hear new Lorde until 2015.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We never listen to radio. Sent stuff all the time and scour for stuff that sometimes ends up being popular.
Lorde performed her Grammy nominated and winning song "Royals" at last nights Grammy Awards.
The Grammys like you to perform nominated songs although Katy Perry performed "Dark Horse" which was not nominated but "Roar" was.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Will 2 Grammys give Lorde a larger crowd outside of her "Royals" success?....
One of the good things in music in 2013 was Lorde and she has released the video to "Team" getting over 2 million views in over a week.
It is interesting to hear the "Royals" singer who is 17 feel that she is kinda older while professing to be on each other's team.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We Love it....dare we say even more than "Royals"?
