Taylor Swift Takes #1 Spot on Stubhub's Hottest Summer Concert List

Stubhub has announced the top 10 hottest concerts of the summer, and Taylor Swift reigns supreme at #1 on the list. One Direction comes in at #2, while Taylor’s pal Ed Sheeran takes the #3 spot. It’s no surprise Taylor took the top spot with her recently-launched 1989 World Tour. According to Stubhub, she’s been the #1 touring female artist since she first hit the road in 2011. One Direction’s position near the top has also remained steady, despite Zayn Malik’s departure from the group. They were #2 on the list last summer, too. Stubhub tallied their results based on…

Adele Meets Stevie Nicks, Says It Was the "Best Night of My Life"

If you thought the best night of Adele's life was that time she won an armload of Grammys, or that time she won an Oscar, think again.  The best night of the singer's life was, evidently, Wednesday night, when she got to meet one of her idols: Stevie Nicks. Adele got to come face-to-face with Stevie backstage when Nicks and her band Fleetwood Mac played in London. Adele posted a photo of herself posing with the singer and wrote, "So...tonight was THE best night of my life. I love you Stevie Nicks!! The queen of melodies! Thanks for everythingx." Hello…

It seems Iggy Azalea just can’t catch a break. Thousands of people have signed a petition to have the Aussie rapper’s Billboard Music Award for Top Rap Song retracted. The petition on Change.org claims Iggy’s song “Fancy” was ineligible to receive the prize. "Iggy Azalea's 2015 Billboard Award for Best Song has been proven invalid," the petition reads.

Britney, on the other hand, was eager to snap it up. “We were in the studio when we found out, none of us could believe it,” Perrie says. “I cried!” Little Mix was formed for…

Another day, another Forbes list.  This one is the publication's first-ever list of "America's 50 Richest Self-Made Women."  The richest musician on the list?  Madonna.
