The Weekend ‘Can’t Feel His Face’…But Taylor Swift Is Feeling His Hair

Canadian singer Abel Tesfaye, who goes by the moniker The Weekend, and sings the hit song “Can’t Feel My Face,” was apparently petted like a puppy when he met singer Taylor Swift at a Grammy after-party this year. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the dreadlocked musician tells of how Swift did not abide by that unspoken golden rule that black people have – don’t touch our hair, at least not without asking first. Tesafye says, “the whole time she was talking, she was kind of, like, petting my hair?” he said of the 15-minute encounter. “I think she was

Do You Agree With Kanye West’s Outburst at the MTV VMAs?

kanye-west-taylor-swift-MTVEven though Kanye West was out of line when he interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for best female video at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, we kind of think he was right in declaring that Beyonce "had one of the best videos of all time!"

Chris Brown Named Billboard’s Top Artist of 2008

It's unexpected totally, so it's a surprise," Brown, who also nabbed the honor in 2006, said. With hits like "With You," "Forever" and "No Air" (with Jordin Sparks), Brown heated up the charts consistently through 2008. "I've had a good year but I still feel like a little insecure in those parts. I'm like, `There's little ol' me getting an award' — that's incredible," he said. Lil Wayne was runner-up, girlfriend Rihanna was No. 3, and Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift rounded out the top five.
