Pink revealed she’s taking a break from music in 2020 to slow down with her husband and kids.  After making albums and touring the last couple of years she said, “It’s kind of the year of family.  It’s time to do something else for a minute.”

Taylor Swift wrote an open letter on social media yesterday claiming that music producer Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta will not allow her to perform her old music at the American Music Awards on November 24th.  Just to recap, Scooter purchased Big Machine, which owns the master recordings to all of her first six albums.  Taylor is set to receive the Artist of the Decade Award and she planned on performing a medley of her hits over the last ten years, but the two are barring her from using her older songs.  Here’s what she had to say:

And The Grammy Goes To….

As the saying goes if it ain’t broke don’t fix it! Alicia Keys did a great job hosting The Grammy Awards last year that she will be back as host the show! She says, “Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love in the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music.” The Grammys air on CBS January 26th and the nominations will be announced next week.

Super Bowl Surprise!?

Super Bowl Surprise!?

So you’re saying there’s a chance? In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Ricky Martin was asked if he is joining Jennifer Lopez and Shakira as a special guest performer at the Super Bowl.  He didn’t say “no,” but he didn’t say “yes,” either.  The Miami native said, “I don’t know, let’s see what happens.”  Super Bowl 54 is February 2nd in Miami.  Maybe Mr. 305 Pitbull will be there? Just Jamie speculating!

I can’t believe this is happening. Romance. December 6. I just wanted this album to sound like what falling in love feels like, pretty impossible thing to do but I can say I gave it all I had. I’ve never lived as much life as I did writing this album. It was messy, and beautiful, unforgettable and at times so painful I wish I could forget, it was excruciatingly consuming and impossible not to get lost in, it was mine… and now it’s yours. ♥️ I hope you love it as much as I’ve loved living it. You can preorder the album this Friday ♥️ and there’s a new song Living proof that comes out with the pre order this Friday 😭 one of the first and one of my favorite songs I wrote for the album. WHOAH. Overwhelmed. ♥️ OH MY GOD AND A TOUR!!!!! North America, verified fan sign ups for #TheRomanceTour are happening right now!! It’s gonna be magic, I can’t wait 😭 More dates to come ♥️ #RomanceIsComing
