Apple has announced that top acts like Pharrell Williams, Kylie Minogue, Maroon 5 and Sam Smith are set to perform at the eighth annual iTunes Festival. The 30-day musical event will run throughout the month of September at Roundhouse in London.
Like past years, the 2014 iTunes Festival can be watched by streaming online through the iTunes Festivals iOS app. Other performers set to rock the event are 5 Seconds of Summer, Calvin Harris, Chrissie Hynde, David Guetta and many more.
Katy Perry is not content with getting only one nomination at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. She actually wanted her chart-topping single ‘Roar’ to be nominated in the “Video of The Year” category; but was snubbed.
So the disappointed “Fireworks” singer decided to go on Twitter and take a subtle dig at the forthcoming award show.
Check out Katy’s shady tweet below
I agree with Katy. ‘Roar’ totally deserved to be nominated in the “Video of The Year” category. The video for ‘Roar’ was very colourful and had a beautiful story line.
I was very much appalled to see Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” making the list. All Miley did in the visual was to get naked and disgustingly lick a sledge hammer. How did “Wrecking Ball” topple “Roar” to make list??
Also another nomination that shocked me was “Royals” being nominated for “Best Female Video”. How did such an awful video make the nomination list? Lorde is one of favourite singers but truth be told, the visual for “Royals” is one of the worst ever. It basically does not make sense.
Michael Jackson is arguably the most successful musician of all time. He broke barriers and set the bars so high that it is virtually impossible for any other singer to replicate his enviable achievements.
Sadly, he became a victim of his own success. Albums released after the ‘Dangerous’ album were unfairly regarded as underwhelming and failed to make huge impact on charts. We must cut him some slack, because Jackson’s unsuccessful runs on music charts should be blamed on the audience and critics who preferred to buy tabloids and read lies about him than buying his great albums.

Lauryn Hill, 38, was released from prison on Friday and she decided to celebrate her release with a new song-Consumerism…
In a press release, Hill mentioned that;
“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side,”
Lauryn Hill was convicted of income tax evasion in May and was sentenced to three months in federal prison after paying $900,000 in back taxes.
