People are talking about Queen B. Beyoncé, Katy Perry (especially post-Super Bowl), Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Hozier, Beck, and John Legend!Which stars usually make the biggest splash on the red carpet?
You can ALWAYS count on Lady Gaga to make not only a splash, but a TIDAL WAVE on the carpet! I always look forward to her fashion choices. Beyoncé and Jay-Z are the ultimate power couple, and are always in sync both in music and fashion. I’m sure Kim and Kanye are going to dress to impress! The Grammy’s Red Carpet is always so fun to watch, because many of the Artists choose fashion that best expresses and reflects their music, whether it’s classic and soulful, or loud and futuristic! You’re always kept on your toes, and that makes it even more exciting!Who is up for the most awards?
Beyoncé, Sam Smith, and Pharrell are up for the most awards this year! Each earning six nominations!Who is your favorite to do well?
Personally, I am rooting for Beyoncé, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, and Sam Smith! I’m a fan of all the nominees, but I’m basing my response on whose music I play the most in the car.What will we all be talking about on Monday?
As Madonna sings “Music makes the people come together…yeah.” People will be talking about the collaborations, the celebrations, and the Tweets across the Nation! Oh yeah…and what Lady Gaga wore.
