The American Music Awards threw down at the Los Angeles Microsoft Theater Sunday night and while it was an awards show, some might have thought it was a political campaign stop. Many a joke was thrown Donald Trumps way but the highlight for us was an emotional speech my Selena Gomez.
“I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down,” she said.
“But I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside.
“I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram,” she said, indicating her heart. “I want to see what’s in here.
“I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it any more. All I can say is I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every day with people that I love.
“But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. That’s one thing you should know about me – I care about people. And this is for you.”
Lady Gaga actually broke down and cried while Hailee Steinfeld hugged Selena as she left the stage.

Selena Gomez’s return to the spotlight at the 2016 American Music Awards seems to become more of a reality every day. AMAs producer Larry Klein told E! News that Gomez could show up and this claim is backed up by a second source who stated that Selena would be there. What about her Ex Justin Beiber. No worries for her because the Biebs is in Europe for his ‘Purpose’ tour, and will perform via satellite for the show.
Don’t expect Selena to perform because she hasn’t been rehearsing and she just left rehab but it’s still going to be nice to see her and she how she looks. You go girl and we’re behind you 100%
Marc Anthony is separating from his wife of 2 years and it doesn’t come without some controversy. His news comes after a few hours after he and Jennifer Lopez shared some serious PDA.
Marc and Shannon De Lima reportedly have only been serperated for a short time but that didn’t stop Marc from locking lips with JLo. BTW, they got married back in 2014, and have no children together.
During Thursday night’s Latin Grammys J Lo presented Marc with an award and then they lockd lips but J Lo’s manager is denying any kind of a romantic connection.
…..If he had voted!
Kanye last night told the concert goers at his Saint Pablo Tour show in San Jose that “I would have voted on Trump”. He didn’t vote though so why even say anything?
At a cost of several songs, Kanye went on a 40 minute political rant about about the paradigm shift. More or Less Kanye praised Trump for providing the disruption Washington needed.
“Whether you voted for Hillary or Trump, this is a safe space for both of you,” he told the audience
He also reiterated his desire to run for president in 2020, saying his focus would be on education and that his campaign would use a different political model. We all can’t wait. After the Trump win, anything’s possible right?
The attitude at the show was very mixed. Kanye was apparently happy when one woman screamed that she loved him in spite of his appreciation of Trump’s campaign, but there was also a lot of booing, stunned silence and even a few projectiles – one of which was a Yeezy shoe, which Kanye promptly signed and returned to the thrower. Gotta love Kanye.
The Rolling Stones will have been invited to perform for Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration in January.
If this offer is true, it’s really hard to believe, given a history of hatred between The Donald and and the Rolling Stones. But maybe Trump is trying to make nice, and there’s an opportunity for the Stones to unify warring factions.
Rumor has it Trump could be paying the Stones upwards of $5 million dollars, probably more since during the campaign, Justin Bieber was reportedly offered $5 million to play a Republican event. That offer was declined, following rumored manager Scooter Braun. Must be nice to turn down 5 Million dollars huh?
There are certainly other artists that have been supportive of a Donald Trump presidency. But the Stones are not only popular, they’re in great performing shape with the 73-year-old Jagger able to dance effortlessly on stage.
The Rolling Stones have not responded to an inquiry regarding the reported invitation but you can be sure we’ll let you know if they decide to pull the trigger.

Free Mp3 Downloads
There are basically two main reasons you are able to find free MP3 music downloads so easily. The first one is because a lot of musicians find it very difficult to get into the music business. Often times when you go through a big record label companies, they will try to mold and groom you into something they want you to be.
These days more and more people are refusing to change their image to please a record label. They therefore set out to make things happen on their own. Setting out to do things on your own can sometimes be extremely difficult. That’s why many up and coming musicians will use free MP3 music downloads to help get their music out.
Giving away free tracks is a great way to build a loyal following. If they like what they hear they will have no problem paying for your tracks later on down the road.
Another reason it is so easy to find free MP3 music downloads is because big record labels see the value in giving away a few free tracks right before an artist comes out with a new album. It let’s the fans hear a small sample of what’s soon to come. This allows them to hear before they buy. If they like what they hear they will be more likely to purchase other downloadable tracks from the album.
And to prove the point even more there have been several studies that show people buy an album after listening to it online.
