Katy Perry Named ‘Billboard’ Woman Of The Year: Morning Mix
Did You Hear?
:: Katy Perry has won Billboard‘s Woman of the Year Award. While you could argue her 2011 was more impressive, this year she accomplished quite a lot, including a world tour, releasing “Wide Awake,” starring in a 3-D movie and a Sims video game, oh and dropping Russell Brand. [Billboard]
:: More awards! Feist beat out the likes of Drake and Japandroids to win Canada’s $30,000 Polaris Music Prize for her 2011 album Metals. The award “is given to the year’s best Canadian album with no consideration to genre, professional affiliation or sales requirement.” [Rolling Stone]
:: Rihanna wished Chris Brown luck ahead of his September 24 court hearing, but maybe she was jinxing him, because Breezy tested positive for marijuana. As a result, he’ll be back in court for a probation violation hearing on November 1. [CNN]
:: Usher has postponed European tour dates due to scheduling conflicts with his upcoming stint on The Voice. The dates have been pushed back and will now coincide with a North American tour in fall 2013. [That Grape Juice]
