He died in September

Mac Miller has earned his first Grammy nod three months after his death.

The rapper, who died from a combination of drugs and alcohol on September 7, released his last album Swimming on August 3. It debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard charts in August and returned to the Top 10 (jumping from No. 71 to No. 6) right after his death. Yesterday, it received a nomination for the year's Best Rap Album.

Swimming is nominated against Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy, Nipsey Hussle's Victory Lap, Pusha T's Daytona, and Travis Scott's Astroworld. Three singles were released from the LP: "Small Worlds," "Self Care," and "What's the Use?"

The album was incredibly personal, and many fans are thrilled that it's receiving recognition posthumously. Many fans took to Twitter to share their excitement for the nomination.



The 61st Grammy Awards will be held on February 10.

We talked with the "1950" singer on her new collaboration with Mark Ronson for 'Late Night Feelings'

Today, Mark Ronson releases his debut full-length album Late Night Feelings, and it's packed with stellar female vocalists straddling all genres, from Camilla Cabello to Alicia Keys to Angel Olsen to our favorite star-on-the-rise, King Princess. During this past weekend at Bonnaroo, I had the chance to pick KP's brain about their collab, "Pieces of Us," ahead of its release.

"We're real humans at the end of the day"

Twenty-two-year-old Lauren Jauregui is part of a generation that grew up in a world where social media was a given. But social media platforms would play a particularly significant role in her life once she became a public figure at the age of 16, first as a strong competitor on the televised talent show X-Factor, and then as a member of a little girl group you may have heard of: Fifth Harmony. Jauregui's seen the good side of social media, like building relationships with fans and spreading positivity; but, she's also experienced what happens when cancel culture takes hold, and online bullying becomes a real problem.

"Need" is maybe not the right word, but we want to hear Lana sing all these songs

Today is Lana Del Rey's birthday; it's the Summer Solstice, the start of Cancer season (oh, did you also think Lana was a Gemini?), and the astrological Cusp of Magic. Quite a day, when you think about it. And, like, I think about it a lot, because it's, um, also my birthday.

She's Barbie, and he's Ken

The first day of summer has brought new music from some of my favorite rappers. Gucci Mane and Trina debuted new albums. And my problematic fave, Nicki Minaj, dropped her anticipated single "Megatron." It's a smooth, reggae-inspired track that makes sense of the colorful jungle imagery she used on its cover. It's also a strong, defiant declaration of love for her boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

This is hilarious

Rihanna and Seth Meyers got beautifully, messily drunk for last night's episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, and it's everything you'd hope it is and more. More than a few drinks in, Meyers requested that Rihanna give him a makeover using Fenty Beauty products, and the results are, well... drunk.
