    In the wake of Recording Academy chief Neil Portnow’s ill-worded comments after the Grammy Awards Sunday night — in which he said female artists and executives need to “step up” — and a low number of nominees and winners who are women, a group of female music-industry senior executives have issued a letter calling for his resignation. The group, which is led by veteran music-business attorney Rosemary Carroll, also includes agents Cara Lewis, Natalia Nastaskin and Marsha Vlasic; John Legend manager Ty Stiklorius; Pharrell Williams manager Caron Veazey; Warner/Chappell publishing VP Katie Vinten; branding executive Marcie Allen and several others....

    t's a demo low for the telecast, as it still skews young and the audience drops by 24 percent. Sunday's Bruno Mars-loving Grammy Awards took a dramatic ratings spill, fetching the smallest demo audience in the show's history. The telecast, which ran a bloated three-and-a-half hours, was off by 24 percent from 2017 with adjusted numbers. With time zone adjustments taken into account, the telecast averaged 19.8 million viewers and a 5.9 rating among adults 18-49. The second stat marked a low for the show. Among total viewers, that number was down even more than overnight returns from Nielsen Media...
  • Nikki Haley thinks Hillary’s cameo ruined the Grammys

    United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley showed some of her own fire and fury after Hillary Clinton and a number of celebrities read portions of a tell-all book critical of the Trump administration at the Grammy Awards. “I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it,” Haley wrote on Twitter late Sunday during the show. “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
  • Hillary Clinton’s ‘Spiritual Advisor Cameo’ Surpasses By Far Her Grammy Act

    In the meantime she’ll wait for Shillady’s “Sunday” while working with the entertainment industry proving that real life really is stranger than fiction Hillary Clinton’s Grammy audio book edition cameo reading extracts from the largely discredited book ‘Fire & Fury:Inside the White House’—incredibly Agence French Presse-described as “lighthearted” cannot possibly compare with her real life cameo of “spiritual advisors”. Incidentally, nothing Hillary Clinton ever does is in any way light or clean hearted, AFP. But for hypocrisy and outrageous lies Clinton’s Spiritual Advisor Cameo should win her “the grammy’s in the bag” status for life.
  • Grammy Ratings Fall From 2017 As Politics Dominate Music’s Biggest Night

    Back in New York City for the first time since George W. Bush’s first term and drenched in the politics of the Donald Trump era, last night’s Grammy Awards tanked in the all-important ratings, was rockin’ with multiple wins for a very non-political Bruno Mars and a very very political Kendrick Lamar. The more than three-hour long CBS show also had an audio book audition cameo by Hillary Clinton a use or two of the censor button, a lot of U2 and Sting, a powerful Time’s Up speech by Janelle Monáe and an equally powerful performance by Kesha and a...

    It seems Hillary Clinton has lost all dignity by shaming the President of the United States on a live TV event like the Grammys.  The Grammys are known to be sleezy and risqué at its best.  Now Hillary Clinton reads Michael Wolff’s fake news book,“Fire And Fury” at the Grammys.  Oh, but she was not alone!  Cher and Snoop Dog read from it also. Never before in the Presidential history of the United States has any President been shown such disrespect by political elites on a live TV event. When you think of the Grammys, you think of people like...

    Hillary Clinton, 2019 Grammy winner? That’s what host James Corden was hoping for, after a pre-taped segment during Sunday night’s award show where he had the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury,” as part of a spoken word audition spoof. Clinton was shown reading from of the bombshell Donald Trump book, first with her face hidden and then revealing who she is. “He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s. No one knew he was coming, and the food was safely pre-made,” she reads....

    The Grammys in New York took a weird turn this morning as the nominations were a shocker: Ed Sheeran’s best selling “Divide” did not get an Album of the Year nod, neither did albums by Lady Gaga or Kesha. Instead, the Grammys went mostly for R&B and rap: Jay Z, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino.... ...all the acts they want on the show– the white pop acts– have been relegated to the Pop Vocal category... How the Grammys became the R&B/Hip Hop Awards will be the subject of much discussion at Black Rock today. Their traditional country nominee...

    Dear Joy, Congratulations on your recent rise up the Internet music charts and for your ability to become “discovered” by an audience that ordinarily wouldn’t have listened to you. Trump voters, however, are a scary bunch of folks to gain as fans; the minute you turn on them or say something they don’t like, they will tear you down. You don’t strike me as the type that would fear anyone. As someone who has seen what they can do, I will say this. Do. Not. Trust. Them. There’s nothing wrong with love, there’s nothing wrong with hope, there is something...

    Talk about a dress for success! A singer who dressed for Sunday night’s Grammy Awards in a gown that proclaimed “Make America Great Again” on the front and “Trump” on the back has seen the sales of her music skyrocket at least 18 million percent in one day. Joy Villa’s album “I Make The Static” instantly jumped to light speed, soaring to No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes album sales chart, as well as No. 1 on Amazon’s top digital albums. It was previously ranked on Amazon at No. 543,202 before her Grammy appearance. The patriotic dress also helped Villa’s...

    You have to hand it to musical celebrities. They have gall. The producer of the Grammy's encouraged musical celebrities to engage in political commentary during the show. “One of the tenets of our show is artistic freedom, and over the years we’ve shown we do believe in it. How many more times do we need to hear ‘I’d like to thank my publicist, my agent, my wife and kids.’ The great acceptance speeches are ones that have a point of view and are more personal.”“One of the things I’ve learned from working with artists for 40 years is that they...

    RUSH: Did anybody watch the Grammys last night? Just one little observation about it. It’s something that you’re not gonna see reported in a lot of places, but let’s weigh some things. Every day, multiple times a day, all day long all you are seeing is stories on the opposition to Trump in the form of rioters and protesters, you name it, people upset with Trump’s immigration, his executive order, all of that. It’s just nothing but opposition. And, as I’ve said, the objective is to make you, Trump supporters, believe that Trump’s losing it, that the country hates Trump,...

    President Trump's political opponents in the music industry would like his help in at least one regard: The laws that govern who makes money off of music. "The Recording Academy, together with America's music makers, call on the president and Congress to help keep the music playing by updating music laws, protecting music education, and renewing America's commitment to the arts," Neil Portnow, the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, said during the 2017 Grammy Awards Sunday night. The appeal demonstrated how the business side of the music industry will have to grapple with the reality...
