The Long Move!

Hi everyone! Just checking in to let you know that I am alive and the reason for my absence the last week is because I have been moving! We have been organizing the new place and painting and fixing things all week and I have not had any TV or internet the whole week until yesterday. So now that I am almost all settled in, I will be posting my usual stories!

Billboard Music Awards Kick-Off Sunday With Prince, Madonna, 
Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, More
















Living music legends Prince and Madonna will be honored at this year's Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 19, at 8:00 ET live on ABC.

"There is nothing small about this Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena airing live on ABC at 8 ET hosted by “30 Rock”’s Tracy Morgan. Just consider for a moment the sheer star power of  those appearing: living legends like Prince and Madonna; pop superstars like Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Bruno Mars; and the next generation of luminaries like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, the Band Perry and Ed Sheeran, among many others.
Prince, one of the most inspirational and influential musicians of all time, will perform at Sunday’s ceremony and is being honored with Billboard’s prestigious Icon Award. Other performers include Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, the Band Perry, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Akon, Ne-Yo, David Guetta and Icona Pop.
Madonna will be honored with the Top Touring Artist award, an achievement earned by the worldwide success of her MDNA tour which sold out all of its 88 date run and was 2012's top-grossing tour with $305 million. It's the pop icon's latest chart landmark in a career full of them, including records for Hot 100 top 10 singles (38 of her overall 56 Hot 100 hits) and Dance Club Songs No. 1s (43). Her MDNA album bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 -- her eighth trip to the penthouse -- with sales of 359,000.
Bieber, Swift and Mars are also vying for the Milestone Award, a fan-driven honor that one voter will get to present at the show alongside Cee Lo Green.
Swift, fun. and Maroon 5 top the finalists at the 2013 awards, with each included in 11 categories. Rihanna competes in 10 categories, including Top Artist against Swift, Maroon 5, Justin Bieber and One Direction, while a pair of younger artists -- Carly Rae Jepsen and 1D themselves -- are finalists in nine and eight categories, respectively.
Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, VEVO, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements were tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound.
Stay tuned for more special Billboard Music Award announcements this week."

Nicki Minaj & Randy Jackson Leaving American Idol

Rolling Stone
"Nicki Minaj will follow Randy Jackson and leave American Idol after this season. Us Weekly reports that the rapper will focus on touring, business deals and her next album, and that she had only ever planned to judge a single season of the competition program.
Minaj joined the FOX reality show this season with fellow new judges Keith Urban and Mariah Carey. She has shared a strained relationship with Carey throughout her brief stint, and recently lashed out at the singer on Twitter.
Jackson, who has been with Idol since its debut in 2001, said last week that he's leaving the show after this season. Urban and Carey's fates haven't been announced, though reports indicate they'll depart, too."

The Great Gatsby

I just saw the new movie "The Great Gatsby" today and I really enjoyed it. I think I might have read the book in college even.
I knew about the movie when I first saw the trailer for it last year and it was stated that the movie was supposed to be out around Christmas of 2012. But the movie was not let out because they wanted to revamp it and add some fun music to the soundtrack. They decided to add Jay Z songs to the film and now it was just released.
I thought the movie was done very well. I can't really remember much of the book except that it was a love story. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire really stood out in the film and I enjoyed their acting. The costumes and sets were amazing and very true to the 20's flapper style.
The rap music was out of place in a movie set in the 1920's but it gave it a modern edge.
All in all, it was a very good movie and it makes me tempted to go look for a copy of the book and read it.

Holographic Nails!

My friend Sarah (WildEdgyNails) lent me her new NFU Oh Holographic nail polish and she let me try it out. I really like the idea of Holographic nail polish and I wanted to order the whole set of holos by either NFU Oh or Color Club but I didn't want to shell out around $80 so I never bought any. But maybe I will reconsider it!

This is the silver holo polish
