Billboard just created the Social 50 Chart which ranks celebrities based on the level of activity on social networking sites, and Justin Bieber and Rihanna were crowned king and queen. Following behind the power duo were Eminem, Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj. Also in the top 10: Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Shakira.
Silvio Pietroluongo, Billboard director of charts, had this to say about the new ranking: “The Social 50 provides a weekly snapshot of the artists with whom music fans engage with the most in the social arena, which in today’s world is a significant validation of their investment in an act.”
…With a whopping 6million+Followers, 3million+Subscribers, and 16million+ likes on Facebook, it’s no wonder Justin has come out on top!
Congrats to JB and Rihanna! Do you think the two will maintain their top spots?
As the year comes to a close, it is time for the Recording Industry Association of America to announce its album and single certification awards. It was a dismal year for the recording industry, with overall album sales down 13 percent. But a few of our favorite stars were still able to do well in 2010.
Justin Bieber topped the list, earning the double-platinum plaque by selling over 2 million copies of My World. The Glee Volume 1 soundtrack also earned a platinum title.
Also worth mentioning is French pop act Phoenix, earning a gold plaque for their album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which sold over 500,000 copies. Ke$ha’s debut album, Animal, contained four hit singles, including the double-platinum song Tik Tok.
Who was your favorite artist in 2010, so far?
Despite the large amount of candy and fun in your near future, the century old question of ‘what to be?’ is still looming in your mind, but never fear for the Sweet Beat stylists are here! We have put together a quick how-to on getting your favorite celebritie’s looks this Halloween.
Lady Gaga We go Gaga over all of this pop diva’s wild outfit choices. This fashionista has an endless amount of bold looks to choose from! Whether you’re rocking leather, crazy sunglasses, leopard print, or raw meat, to capture Gaga’s essence, three things are essential: killer heels, a platinum blonde wig, and a confident attitude!
Snooki While she may not be the best-dressed celeb on our list, Snooki’s style would probably be the most fun to imitate! To achieve the New Jersey native’s look, load up on sunless tanner, buy a Bump-it, and tease your hair. Throw on an animal print dress, some heels, and an unnecessary amount of bronzer, and you’re ready to get spooky!
Rihanna To get the “Rude Boy” singer’s fierce army-inspired look, you’ll need combat boots and some fishnets tights. Add a rhinestone or sequin-embellished, pale-colored tunic or leotard to keep it glam and feminine. Top it off with a short pixie wig to emulate Rihanna’s awesome ‘do.
Ke$ha We love this glam rocker’s style! To get this look, you’ll need a vintage rock tee, some cutoff shorts, and a pair of black lace tights. Layer with a leather jacket. To achieve her grunge-y makeup look, use shimmery dark grey eye shadow to create a smoky eye. Use pencil black eyeliner around eyes and to draw fake lashes underneath your right eye. Add a few extra coats of mascara and decorate with rhinestones.
Taylor Swift This country star is known for her amazing style. First, you’ll need a sparkly dress, a la the one she wore while throughout the length of her Fearless tour. Sport some cute black boots and a curly blonde wig. Complete the look by strapping on an acoustic guitar!
Country singer Taylor Swift has donated $500,000 to help victims of Nashville flooding. Taylor calls Nashville her home and got her start in music there.
“Being at home during the storm, I honestly could not believe what was happening to the city and the people I love so dearly,” says Taylor. “Nashville is my home, and the reason why I get to do what I love. I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis.”
Pop star Ke$ha, also from Nashville, is also chipping in, and is set to perform at a flood benefit concert on June 16. It’s so nice to see stars so willing to help in times of crisis!
