Sia the Big Winner at the "Australian Grammys"; Iggy & 5SOS Also Take Home Trophies


RCA RecordsSia's had a great year, scoring a #1 album and a hit with "Chandelier."  Now, she's been richly rewarded by her home country of Australia.

The singer/songwriter scored four trophies at the ARIA Awards, Australia's version of the Grammys, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.  She won for Album of the Year and Best Pop Release, for 1,000 Forms of Fear, while the "Chandelier" video was named Best Video.  Sia was also named Best Female.  Katy Perry, in the country on her Prismatic World Tour, accepted on her behalf.

Iggy Azalea was named Best Breakthrough Act at the ceremony, beating out 5 Seconds of Summer, among others.  Rising band Sheppard, whose song "Geronimo" is just starting to creep onto the charts here in the U.S., was named Best Group, also beating out 5 Seconds of Summer.  5SOS didn't go home empty-handed, however: in the publicly-voted Song of the Year category, they won for "She Looks So Perfect."

Vance Joy, nominated for two awards, did go home empty-handed, while in the publicly-voted categories Best Australian Live Act and Best International Act, the winners were Keith Urban and One Direction, respectively.  1D and 5SOS both performed on the show.

"Phuckin roun in da studio," wrote Ri Ri in the accompanying caption. Although the 15-second video is black, with no images at all, her vocals come off crystal clear.  "Ain't none of this sh** promised, ain’t none of this promised," she sings over blaring sirens. "Ain't none of this sh** certain, ain't none of this certain."

Taylor Swift Makes Way for One Direction at #1; Christmas Albums Complete Top 10


ABC/Ida Mae AstuteOne Direction's new album, FOUR, has debuted at #1 on the album chart, which means that Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend has now replaced her in the top spot.

Taylor's album 1989, which has spent three weeks at #1, now slips to #2 as her ex Harry Styles and the rest of 1D take over the top slot with FOUR.  Ironically, Harry allegedly inspired some of the songs on 1989. With first-week sales of 387,000 copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan, FOUR notches the second-largest sales debut of the year, after -- you guessed it -- Taylor's album.  It's also the largest sales week for a group in 2014.

Despite the good news, sales of FOUR were slightly down from projected totals of 420,000 copies.  The band's most recent disc, 2013's Midnight Memories, opened with 546,000 copies.

Meanwhile, 1989 has now sold 2.21 million copies.  There are five weeks left in the sales year, so if 1989 at its current pace, it may overtake what is currently the best-selling album of 2014: the Frozen soundtrack, which has moved 3.27 million copies.

Speaking of Frozen, Christmas albums have overtaken the rest of the top ten, as That's Christmas to Me, the latest from a cappella group Pentatonix, jumps to #3, while  Frozen star Idina Menzel's album, Holiday Wishes, jumps to #10 on a 39% sales increase.  Michael Buble's 2011 album, Christmas, is also back in the top 10, currently at #9.  It's returned to the top 10 every year since it first came out.

Elsewhere on the chart, Nickelback's new album, No Fixed Address, has debuted at #4.  It's the Canadian rock band's sixth top-10 album.

Rita Ora Says "Fifty Shades of Grey" Cameo Has Launched Her Acting Career


Image Group LA/ABCRita Ora has a small part in one of 2015's most anticipated movies: Fifty Shades of Grey, based on the best-selling series of erotic novels by E.L. James.  But Rita says that small part has now helped her launch her movie career.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Rita says of the controversial film, "Everyone is going to have their own opinions. But for me, this was such a great cameo to be involved in, and even though I'm only in it for a little bit, it's opened the door to a lot of movie things that I haven't actually announced yet."

The "Black Widow" singer adds, "Fifty Shades is going to make a lot of waves, I'll tell you that much. It's going to be awesome."  She notes that she now has the acting "bug for real," saying, "Fifty Shades was a moment of cameo and a really good wake-up call. It was nice to be a part of it and it opened a lot of doors."

In the movie, Rita plays Mia, the adopted sister of the main character, Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan.  The movie's out February 13.

John Legend Admits It Wasn't Love at First Sight for Him & Supermodel Wife


Image Courtesy Brian Bowen Smith As much as you might like to think John Legend fell head-over-heels the first time he met his supermodel wife Chrissy Teigen, it's simply not true.  Even though she went on to inspire his #1 hit "All of Me," John tells Los Angeles Confidential magazine it wasn't love at first sight.

"Not right away," he tells the magazine. "I’m more cautious than that. I wasn’t like, ‘This is the woman I’m going to marry’ from day one. For me I’m the kind of person who needs to grow into that feeling."

He adds, "It was probably a couple of years in, when I could already see us being together forever." 

Speaking about writing "All of Me" about Chrissy, though, John explains, "The more you know someone, the more you’re inspired by your relationship. Also, I grew up just learning what it means to be in love with somebody… because I had never really been in love before. I guess you have to grow enough to be able to write that song with sincerity and authenticity."

While "All of Me" is a great song in and of itself, John says he thinks the fact that he performed the tune on the Grammys telecast is the thing that really turned it into a monster single.

"The Grammys really vaulted that song from a song that was kind of chugging along on the radio but not breaking through in the way we believed it should and could -- the Grammys took it from No. 49 on iTunes to No. 3 in one night," he tells the magazine. "That was the single most important element that made ‘All of Me’ a huge hit. I’m grateful to them for that and everything that came before that.”

You can read more of John's cover story in the December/January issue of Los Angeles Confidential.

One Direction Scores Fourth Straight #1 Album with "FOUR"


SYCO/Columbia RecordsOne Direction's new album, FOUR, is now their fourth straight #1 album.

The new disc has entered the Billboard chart at the top, with first-week sales of more than 387,000 copies, according to the band's record label.  This makes them the first group ever to have its first four albums debut at #1.

The album's #1 debut was predicted several days ago.  As the news spread, Liam Payne told ABC News Radio Sunday that the prospect of that achievement was "amazing."  "I mean, I don't even know what to say, really. It's quite crazy, like, we spent so much time writing this album this year and then for it to be received so well, it's a lot more personal to us." 

1D promoted FOUR hard, making multiple TV appearances, from ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, to the American Music Awards, to the Ellen DeGeneres Show.  Liam Payne even popped up on ABC's Dancing with the Stars to give pep talk to contestant Sadie Robertson.  Next up for the group is a Saturday Night Live appearance, airing December 20.

1D's On the Road Again tour will kick off July 9, 2015. Tickets are already on sale.

Meghan Trainor Teases Fake "Thanksgiving Carols" Album on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"


Brooke Nipar/Epic RecordsOn Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night, the late night host lamented the lack of seasonal songs for Thanksgiving, and presented a solution with a fake commercial for Meghan Trainor's Thanksgiving Carols album.

The "All About That Bass" singer -- who earlier Tuesday night performed on the finale of Dancing with the Stars -- appeared in the spot, in which she sang songs Kimmel claimed, "will soon be considered Thanksgiving holiday classics."

Meghan previewed such ditties as "Uncle Dan Hates Obama (And Won't Shut Up About Benghazi)" and "I'm Not Bringing Leftovers on the Plane, Mom." 

According to the phony spot, the fake album is available at Walgreens.

Lorde Recalls Milkshakes with Taylor Swift, Plugs "Hunger Games" Soundtrack on "Tonight Show"


Douglas Gorenstein/NBCLorde says she met Taylor Swift for the first time when the two got together in New York City and bonded over milkshakes at the fast food outlet Shake Shack.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday to plug The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack,which she curated, the 18-year-old New Zealand native said Taylor reached out to her first by sending her flowers.  "She sent me some flowers, which was so nice," Lorde told Fallon. "She sent them to my house and said like, 'congratulations on everything." And I was like, 'God.'"

The singer said they eventually "met up" in New York at Shake Shack.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack features performances by a number of artists, including Ariana Grande, Charli XCX and Lorde herself.

The singer told Fallon she didn't know anything about putting a movie soundtrack together, but somehow managed to get it finished in record time, despite being in the middle of a concert tour.

"I think it took like two-and-a-half months, which was like kind of abnormally short," she recalls. "And I was on the road on the tour bus and I would literally run offstage...and get into my bed on the tour bus and just start work for the day on it."

Lorde told Fallon she "called, texted and emailed" artists to get them on board.

Later, Lorde performed "Yellow Flicker Beat," her song from the soundtrack.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 original motion picture soundtrack is available now.

"The Voice" Recap: Ryan Sill Saved Again


Trae Patton/NBCFor the second week in a row, Ryan Sill has been saved by the viewers during a Voice results show.

The Team Gwen Stefani member again benefited from the "instant save" Tuesday night after he, his teammate Anita Antoinette, and Team Blake Shelton's Reagan James were in danger of elimination.

Each artist performed for the viewers, who then cast their "instant save" votes on Twitter and The Voice app. Ryan sang Howie Day's "Collide," Anita covered the Jason Mraz hit "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)," and Reagan delivered a rendition of Nelly Furtado's "I'm Like a Bird."

Earlier in the night, recent Voice adviser Taylor Swift performed her latest hit, "Blank Space." Afterward, she thanked her fans for the success of 1989, and remarked that she has a "permanent smile" on her face after taking a risk with her top-selling pop album.

The one-hour results show also featured performances by Adam Levine and his artists, who sang Billy Joel's "Only the Good Die Young," and Pharrell Williams and his protégés, who belted out Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

Toward the end of his team's performance, Pharrell revised the lyrics and sang, "And I think to myself, we need justice to unfurl," a likely reference to the turmoil in Ferguson, Missouri, this week after a grand jury decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

The top eight will take the stage next Monday night on NBC.

What Thanksgiving Dish is Jason Derulo Dreaming Of? Hint: It's Not Turkey & Stuffing


Credit: Ben WattsAfter a year of non-stop travel and touring, Jason Derulo can't wait to get home and sit down to his Thanksgiving dinner.  Except the dish he's most looking forward to eating isn't your typical Thanksgiving dish: it doesn't involve turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce.

"I'm going home for Thanksgiving -- [I'm] probably gonna put on a couple of pounds over the holiday. I'm excited," Jason tells ABC News Radio "My mom makes the best lasagna ever, so she knows she has to make that!"

Unfortunately, Jason says that his mom doesn't particularly like to make his favorite dish, so he has to nag her about it.

"You know, it takes her a couple hours to do it so she's always like, 'Uhhh, I don't wanna do it!'" laughs Jason. "I'm like, "Ma! It's Thanksgiving. We don't have a choice on that day!' [So] I'm really excited to eat all the food."

If you're wondering why Jason doesn't simply make his own darn lasagne instead of expecting his mom to do it for him, well, it's because he actually can't cook.  But that's something he's planning to change in 2015, as he attempts to strike more of a work-life balance.

Explaining what he's most looking forward to in the coming year, Jason tells ABC News Radio, "Getting to, like, learn different things, like being able to cook a meal. Like I don't know how to cook except, like, an omelet! This year, I'm definitely gonna take some time to myself."  

After Thanksgiving, Jason will be heading back out on the road for a series of Christmas concerts, but then he'll make it back home in time to celebrate with his family.

Ariana Grande Not Upset About Bette Midler's Comments About Her


Republic RecordsAriana Grande doesn't have a "Problem" with what Bette Midler said about her in a recent interview.

As previously reported, Bette told the British newspaper The Telegraph, "It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous," and added, "I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it."  She added that all young female stars of today should "trust their talent," adding, "You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t."

While TMZ reports that people close to Ariana say that the singer is hurt, indignant and "shocked" at Bette's comments -- both because she's a huge fan of Midler's and because she feels that the award-winning entertainer used her own sexuality early in her career -- it turns out that she's not really that upset.

On Twitter, she posted a photo of Bette from the '70s wearing a very low-cut blouse, and a paragraph that read "Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but i want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love."  She captioned it "All love here."  She added, referring to one of Bette Midler's movies, "and I will still quote first wives club every single day of my life lmao."

Bette, for her part, responded to Ari's tweets by tweeting, "About my screed on @ArianaGrande, all I can say is, "Spoken like a reformed old whore! She does have a beautiful voice, on a couch or off."

Adam Levine Says Chris Hemsworth Deserves "People's" Sexiest Man Alive Title


Courtesy People MagazineAfter a year of flaunting the fact that he landed the title of People's Sexiest Man Alive, Adam Levine was forced to relinquish it earlier this month for this year's hottie: Chris Hemsworth, star of The Avengers and the Thor movies.  But the Maroon 5 frontman says there's no hard feelings between himself and the Australian actor.

Speaking to Access Hollywood Live, Adam says of Hemsworth, "Listen he's a super, super good looking [guy]. He's a handsome dude. He's Thor, for Christ's sake! I mean, the dude deserves it. Gosh!"

Asked if he believes Hemsworth is sexier than Adam, fellow Voice coach Blake Shelton told the TV show, "I don’t even know who the other dude is. I have absolutely zero clue who the new guy is… But I guarantee you he's more manly and better looking and probably a better human being all together."

Adam of course, had to fire back at Blake, mocking him for never appearing on the cover of People's annual Sexiest Men issue.

"You guys, see, Blake made the inside of the magazine," he explained. "Blake made the guys-who-weren't-quite-sexy-enough-to-be-on-the-cover list."

Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett Unwrap New Holiday Ad for H&M


Courtesy H&MLady Gaga and Tony Bennett have unveiled their new commercial for H&M's new holiday campaign.  Called "Magical Holidays," the one-minute, 40-second spot features Gaga and Bennett as just one element of a special holiday party.

The clip starts with a woman, back to the camera, carrying a gift-wrapped box down a hall. Then we see a couple making out in the back of a bus, which opens up to reveal a band on a ship, with a female captain giving gifts to a family.  We travel through the porthole in the ship, and we're in a log cabin, where a bunch of young people are partying in front of a roaring fire.  One woman climbs a staircase to the attic, and pops out of a gold box, dressed in a glamorous outfit, into a ballroom where elegantly attired people are dancing in front of a stage.

Finally, 40 seconds into the ad, we see Gaga and Tony onstage. She's wearing a huge curly wig and a dark green dress; he's wearing a tux.  They dance for a bit, and then sing "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," one of the standards from their jazz album Cheek to Cheek.  As they finish the number, the camera pulls out to reveal that the whole scene has taken place inside the box that the woman in the first scene was carrying down the hall. 

The woman, now revealed to be Gaga in heavy eye makeup and a white fur hat, replaces the lid and walks out of the room and back down the hall.

Kelly Clarkson Debuts New Holiday Video for "Wrapped in Red"


RCA Records"Wrapped in Red" was the title cut of Kelly Clarkson's 2013 holiday album, but she's finally gotten around to shooting a video for it.  The clip is now available for viewing exclusively on Amazon.

The video incorporates old home movies of kids playing in the snow, unwrapping presents and decorating trees, with snowy winter scenes, and shots of Kelly singing in a few different settings: in a studio lit by light bulbs, against a red background with Christmas decorations and against a hazy white background.

Earlier this year, Kelly posted a photo of her baby daughter River Rose visiting her on the set of the video shoot. She captioned it with the hashtag "#babysfirstvideo."

You can buy Wrapped in Red in a variety of formats at Amazon, but over at Walmart, you can purchase a special CD/DVD bundle that includes both the album and a copy of Kelly's 2013 NBC Christmas special Kelly's Cautionary Christmas Music Tale.

Jordin Sparks Releases Profanity-Laced Diss Track Aimed at Jason Derulo


Image Group LA/ABCIf you thought Jordin Sparks wasn't angry about her breakup with Jason Derulo earlier this year, think again. The singer has just dropped a diss track that's littered with profanity, and it's aimed squarely at Jason.

The song is called "How Bout Now (Remix)," and it's based directly -- music and lyrics -- on Drake's song "How Bout Now."  The chorus goes, "You ain't really f**k with me way back then, but how 'bout now?/'Cause I'm up right now and you suck right now/You thought you had it all figured out back then, boy, but how 'bout now?/'Cause I'm up right now/and you suck right now."

In case there's any question about who Jordin's singing about, the lyrics include the line, "Remember when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for ya?/You probably don't remember half the sh*t that I did for ya."  Jordin and Jason famously got close after he literally broke his neck onstage, and she nursed him back to health.

Elsewhere, Jordin sings, "Always been mom's little angel/And to watch you blow up, head got big and you started changing/Can't believe all the things that you're saying/Like I'm witcha for your fame and your name, what?/That thought and your vision now setting up a game, what?/What you're dying is to be is the famous/Asking for the things that you gave me/tryin' to lock it in with a baby."

The song is from a mixtape Jordin plans to release today, titled Bye Felicia.

This Year, Meghan Trainor's Thankful for Her "Dream"-Like Life


Heading into Thanksgiving, Meghan Trainor certainly has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.  Not only did she score one of the biggest hits of 2014 with "All About That Bass," but her new album is coming out in January, followed by a headlining tour, and a Grammy nomination may not be out of the question.  No wonder she describes her life as "a dream."

Asked what she'll be most thankful for this year, Meghan tells ABC News Radio, simply, "Life.  My songs, and all this happening.  This is incredible."  She adds, "Everything is a dream. It's like a movie."

In fact, Meghan says she's eager for all the cool stuff she's getting to do -- like presenting on Sunday night's American Music Awards -- to be documented for posterity. 

"My brother was saying he should maybe just tape a GoPro to his head for wherever we go," she laughs. "Because, like, we meet cool people every day, it's ridiculous!"  

You can catch Meghan performing at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday on NBC.

OneRepublic Offers New Charity Remix, Chance to Win a VIP Tour Experience


Courtesy Coca-ColaOneRepublic has teamed up with Bono's (RED) charity campaign and Coca-Cola to offer a remix of their new single "I Lived" that will raise money for a good cause, and you can join in and win some great prizes.

Proceeds from downloads of the "I Lived" remix will go to the (RED) Global Fund, specifically to its latest campaign, called Share the Sound of an AIDS-Free Generation, which is working to fight mother-to-child transmission of HIV.  In connection with that, the band is also offering fans the chance to spend a day with them and live like a VIP.

If you visit Omaze.com, you can donate money for chances to win the grand prize: you and a guest will fly to join the band at the tour stop of your choice.  You'll get a VIP backstage tour, go to the soundcheck and hang out with the guys and then watch the show from VIP seats.

"We're proud to be part of the (RED) campaign this year and are looking forward to spending time with a winning fan" said OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder.

Depending on how much you donate, you can also receive cool merchandise, like OneRepublic t-shirts, hoodies, autographed albums, guitars and more.

Ryan, who's friendly with Bono, tells People magazine that teaming with the U2 singer's (RED) charity was a no-brainer, adding, "It made sense. The nature of our song 'I Lived' lined up with the whole theme of their campaign."   The song itself, says Ryan, was written about his four-year-old son, Copeland.

"He knows the song is about him. He loves it. He loves this song," says Ryan. "He's always into whatever is the most recent song that we've done. So right now, he walks around singing 'Love Runs Out' cause that was our last single. Before then, it was 'Counting Stars,' and now it'll be 'I Lived.'"

More than 3,000 bottles were used to construct the house, which was originally used as a gift shop. The house at 1924 Barrister Street has been in the same family since it was built 100 years ago. What began as a one-story planter cottage, is now a grand colonial home.
