Forbes lists who are the highest earning women in music for the past year

Forbes has compiled their list of the highest earning women in music from the period of June 2016 to June 2017. The calculations were made from pretax income during that period and does not factor out in the fees that are taken out to pay agents, managers, lawyers and anyone else that might be on their payroll.

Who was the highest earner? It was Beyonce with $105 million USD due to the Formation tour.
Where does Grammy album of the year winner Adele rank? She's at number 2 at $69 million USD.
Where does that put Taylor Swift? She ranks at 3 with $44 million USD. Next year, she will probably be higher due to raking in more money from reputation and the subsequent tour for it.
Those that have residency shows in Las Vegas round out the top 5 earners within the past year Celine Dion and J.Lo.
Honorable mentions to Dolly Parton and Barbra Streisand who also make the top 10 list due to their tours.

VS fashion show after party shut down by chinese authorities

To add to the already messy planning of the VS Fashion show 2017, the scheduled after party once the show was done was promptly shut down by chinese police after a little more than an hour and a half and right when DJ Aime took the stage.

"They want us to finish. We are sorry, we tried." a woman who was working the crowd control said.

Party started at 9:30 and was shut down at 11:50.

Do you think the VS fashion show will return to NYC next year?

HDD comes for Billboard for reporting inaccurate numbers for Taylor Swift's reputation

• The official Billboard numbers for Taylor Swift's "Reputation" are in and Hits Daily Double is not happy.

• HDD's number put Reputation with sales of 1.29m while Billboard put Swift with around 1.26m.

• They go on to say this proves how out of touch Billboard's head John Amato and his team are and that "they took their eye off the ball during a crucial moment for the entire industry—because they didn’t care."

• HDD adds, "If they did care, they would’ve done the work to find out what really happened with the year's most eagerly awaited album, considering the importance of an accurate count to one of the industry's hugest stars, her label or the biz at large."

• The "Getaway Buick" songstress, Taylor Swift herself and her team at Big Machine are upset about these numbers as well, according to HDD.

• HDD is asking for Amato and his team's resignation because "Billboard isn't in the music business."

the numbers simply do not add up. i demand a recount.

Supergirl's Saturn Girl is better known for doing brownface in India

In case you missed last night's ep of Supergirl, it was Saturn Girl's debut. She's played by Amy Jackson, a white British actress who made a career out of playing Indian women in South Indian movies in full brownface (dark contact lenses, dyed hair, darkened skin). When she first arrived in India, she could speak only English and couldn't dance, but local actresses were still passed over in her favour and she has since established a successful career and worked with huge stars such as Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth.

When asked about if she cared about the criticism she got for doing brownface, she once replied:

"It’s terrible when people try to discriminate others because of being part of another country. I understand that some people say foreign girls should not be playing a part of an Indian girl, but then look at the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio who played a South African character in a film. It’s just an issue that a minority of the audience has. It is not something the mass population has a problem with."

Actress Heather Matarazzo Tells Daniel Franzese That Bijou Phillips Once Strangled Her

Read the post about Mean Girls' Daniel Franzese harassment at the hands of Bijou Phillips on the set of Bully here

- in an episode of her podcast Shut Up and Listen actress Heather Matarazzo (of Welcome to the Dollhouse, The Princess Diaries, and The L Word fame) told gay actor Daniel Franzese that actress Bijou Phillips strangled her just before they filmed the 2007 horror film Hostel: Part II

The day before they started shooting, there was a 'get to know you' party where Heather was not drinking as she had been sober for about a year.

- Heather's description of events:

"I remember the grey gloves. I remember the grey gloves. [Phillips] had thrown me up against a wall and put her hands around my neck and started choking me and choked me for a good 15, 20 seconds. And said, because she knew that I was sober based upon when we’d gotten there, we’d been offered pills by one of the producers to help us sleep, from the jet lag and the time difference. And I was like, ‘No, I don’t…. nope.’ I kept on getting offered and offered until I was like, “I’m sober, I don’t do that.” And so that night, when she had thrown me up against the wall and like, I mean I’ve experienced some horrifying moments in my life and I count that to be one of them."

- she also claims that Phillips said to her, “I’m going to make sure that you relapse on this film.” (she did not relapse)

- Heather did not tell the producers or director

- Bijou is a Scientologist and married to Danny Masterson, who has been accused of rape by four different women (ONTD post about it)

Melissa Schuman, of girl group DREAM, blogs about her rape by Backstreet Boy Nick Carter

- Posted the blog on November 2 of this year, but didn't tweet about it until the 19th.

- Nick had originally shown interest in her when Dream was shooting their This is Me (Remix) video and had label reps arrange for a phone call meeting between them. She had a boyfriend at the time but talked to him over the phone in front of reps just to make them happy.

- A few years later, they were cast in the same TV movie: The Hollow. She was 18, he was 22.

- He invited her over to his apartment on their day off to hang out with him and a friend. She also took a friend with her. He got her alone to listen to new music in his office. They kissed and when she said she didn't want to go further, he forced himself on her.

She goes into more detail on her blog if anyone is interested in reading it, but it is triggering.

Bruno Mars Being Sued By Photographer Over A Picture

Amore reports that Bruno Mars posted a picture of himself on his instagram from when he was a child. The photographer, Catherine McGann, claims she originally posted it on HER social media first. So she owns the copyright to the picture.

*) The picture gained more than 1.2 million likes
*) Bruno posted it without her permission
*) His label is also being sued for all the money that was earned from the photo

This isn't the first time a photographer has gone after a celebrity for a picture they posted of themselves on their social media.

In September of this year, Page Six reported Gigi Hadid was being sued by photographer, Peter Cepeda, for posting a pap shot of herself on her instagram. The picture also got 1.2 million and the photographer claimed he wasn't given credit. Celebrities earn money off the traffic they get on their social media accounts. So it looks like these celebrities will have to be more careful in the future about giving credit for pictures they use!

Celebs React to Trump Officially Supporting Pedophile Roy Moore

Today Trump officially supported republican senate nominee Roy Moore, who has been accused by 9 women of perusing, assaulting, and/or molesting them as teens between 14-18 years old. Here's what he had to say:

"He denies. Look he denies it. If you look at what is really going on and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours... He totally denies it. He says it didn't happen. You have to listen to him also. You don't need somebody who's soft on crime like (Doug) Jones. Let me just tell you, Roy Moore denies it. That's all I can say. He denies it. And by the way, he totally denies it. Well he denies. I mean Roy Moore denies it. And by the way he gives a total denial... All you can do is you have to do what you have to do. He totally denies it... We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat."

Janet's trainer explains the singer's 70 pound weight loss

After her son was born and embarking on a tour that has yet to be cancelled, Janet lost a total of 70 pounds.

Janet's trainer Paulette Sybliss says "I started training her about six weeks after she had Eissa so about March we started. We had a very vigorous training schedule," she said. "We were training a minimum of four times a week and the sessions were never less than 45 minutes, no more than an hour. Very intense, though. Very intense training."

Janet's initial desire was to simply lose weight but Paullette wanted to focus on building lean muscle.

"She thought she'd have to lose more and I knew she wouldn't. You can see how she looks. I mean her waist is tiny. She looks incredible and she's so fit, but she's also healthy," Paulette explained. "She looks incredibly healthy. She actually looks smaller in person than the pictures. If you see her and think she looks small, you stand next to her and she's even smaller."

"We were doing three or four exercises with weights back to back," Paulette said. "What that does—you would look at her and think she'd done like an hour of cardio with me—but when you're working with weights and you're working the muscle that way, it elevates the heart rate, but also it's creating that fat burning affect both during the session and also when she left me, and that was key."

Happy 20th Anniversary Anastasia! The composers tell the stories behind the film's most iconic songs

  • Composers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty were working on a Disney film at the time when a former Disney executive who moved to Fox contacted them about the movie.

  • They wanted the songs to have Russian elements to it but didn't want it to leave the songs as a "dry period piece" and incorporated pop elements into it too

  • Journey to the Past: this part of the film was actually ghostwritten by Carrie Fisher and her writing helped when trying to get to the psyche of Anya. The original version of the song involved Anya being on a bicycle while singing but was ultimately scrapped. The song continued on to garner an Oscar nomination for Best Song but ended up losing to Titanic’s “My Heart Will Go On.”

  • Once Upon a December: This was the song that the composer duo wrote as part of their audition. The parts when the ghosts start appearing and dancing in the ballroom was a result of the composers' songwriting, saying that the animators loved the concept of the background ghost vocals and later included it into the film. When the animations for the piece was being created there was actually a heatwave going on in New York so it proved to be quite a challenge coming up with all the cold and winter imagery during that time.

  • Learn to do it: this song according the composers was a fun yet challenging with condensing all of Anya's lesson about Russian royalty into one song. The names used in the song were actual names of the Romanov family and influential members of the Russian imperial court, and it proved to be quite the task to make it all rhyme too when including in those names.

  • Aherns and Flaherty finally got there wish of bringing Anastasia from film to broadway this year but with a more historically accurate and mature spin to it. They were blown away to find out how much this movie meant to people when seeing the audience watch the musical.

Favorite Anastasia songs? (both film and musical)

-On Trump's tweet: "I had about 30 text messages, all at once. Just blowing up my phone. They were all these friends of mine, just, like, defending me, and telling me that I was right, and, you know, not to worry about it."
-On protests disrespecting the military: "We hear all the time on TV and social media about “supporting our troops.” But it’s not just about saluting them or thanking them for their service at the airport — and it’s definitely not just about how we observe the national anthem."

Celebs react (with horror) to Trump admin rescinding TPS for 60,000 Haitians

Please read suggestion on the bottom on how you can help!

Background: TPS, or Temporary Protected Status, allows people from countries hit by war, environmental disasters or other crises to live and work in the US legally. It was granted to Haitians after the earthquakes. There are now 60,000 Haitians living under TPS in the US. They have kids, jobs, homes here. Meanwhile, Haiti still hasn't recovered completely from the quakes. Ever worse, since then, the UN accidentally started a chlolera outbreak there that killed over 9,000 people. The country just went through two hurricanes. There is no place for those 60,000 Haitians to go back to! But once their TPS ends in 18 months, the Trump administration will be able to easily deport them, as TPS holders are required to register with the government. Here's an AJ+ video that gives an overview:

Haitian-American actress Garcelle Beauvais (Fancy from The Jamie Foxx Show):

Poet/Rapper Saul Williams:

Collapse )

Sources: AJ+ tweet, Garcelle Instagram, Saul tweet, Alyssa tweet, ASPIRE-TPS Act, Wendell tweet, Christopher tweet, ?uestlove tweet, Dan tweet, Patricia tweet, American Promise Act

How you can help: Call your Representative at 202-224-3121, tell them they need to grant legal residency to not just the 60,000 Haitians under TPS, but all 400,000 TPS holders!

What you can say: Hi, my name is _____. I live in [name of town], my zip code is [zip code]. Here's my message for the congressman/congresswoman: There are 400,000 people living in the US under TPS. They have homes, jobs and kids here. They are a part of our community. Trump wants to deport them. We must stop him! Two bills were introduced this month to save TPS holders:

There is the ASPIRE-TPS Act of 2017.
There is also the American Promise Act of 2017.

We need congressman/congresswoman [name of congressperson] to become a co-sponsor of those bills! Thank you for your time!
